It is possible, they have to win turnover margin in every game. That is easier said than done.

Every B1G West team has their issues. No West team has clearly better talent than NU. It is time for SF & Co. to deliver. I think they will.

They're due right? And since I'm 42, and used to us winning 9 games every year for most of my life why would I change my expectation now? 8-4, win the bowl game, 9-4. Should be the minimum expectation for every Nebraska fan. Always! Then with playoff expansion coming, let's get in the mix!! GBR

Of the 3 things needed to win; player acquisition, development and deployment, acquisition is the best predictor of future success. By far in fact. Our roster is built because of great recruiting, development and roster management. It's really kinda all on the coaches to deploy well. If they do, yes

Better o line makes a running game. 4 large backs doesn't hurt.

It's a more complete team across-the-board. Defense should be a top 25 group

Strongest SF team yet. We've been close to beating our west div tormentors for the last 2 years. It happens this year. 3 wins vs Wi-IA-MN-Nw-Mi.

Absolutely, between the football and basketball teams should get to 8 wins in 2021.

If Charmin gets into the NIL biz, they need to sign Martinez because that's how soft he is.

Huskers won’t get to 8 wins with solving the turnover problem and there’s no reason to assume they will.

They have a tremendously difficult schedule and they tend to lose games that they should win.

7 is plausible and realistic with this schedule. 8 means they'll exceed expectations and upset someone on the road.

1. Who runs and catches? 2. AM may get hurt. 3. No ability to win 50:50 games or even ones where favored. 4. Field position and turnovers. 5. Most worrisome is moronic position from HCSF regarding vaccination. How do we get through season without loss of key players or need to forfeit?

A 7 win season would mean the best Husker team since the T Magic era, or maybe further back than that. This schedule is loaded and the B1G isn’t a cakewalk either. Only sure win is Fordham. I’ll be happy as long as they get a bowl game this year

Husker offense has a long ways to go before being competitive.

Until they prove they will not shoot themselves in the foot with stupid penalties and turnovers expectations should be low.

I want to believe they can, but until the issues going on over the last several years stop....it's going to be more of the same.

Even with the difficult schedule they have the talent to get 8 wins. Unfortunately, this will also take team execution, discipline and a swagger we have yet to see. I'm hoping for 6 wins and a bowl. Anything more is gravy.

Huskers have not shown ability to beat even avg teams and are much more likely to LOSE one of the games they should win. then upset a team that they are underdogs in. This looks like a bubble 6 win team, at best.

Huskers does not have the will to win close games. They are 2 years away from winning the close games.

I have to see a decent downfield passing game first before I start getting too optimistic.

Why would we think this team could win 8 games? I always had rose colored glasses on over the last couple of decades. I took them off and, whew, Steve Pederson screwed us. Prove it to me!!!

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
