(Absolute sarcasm) Hugs only in practice, no flags either, put colored chalk on hands and arms to indicate a tackle...Bring in A/C units or heater units as well...sandwiches and juice with periodic 20 min rest session. Really?!?!?!? Whats next virtual practice on an xbox?

Nebraska has had plenty of tackling issues in last couple years.... this would be a horrible decision.

Horrible idea. Tacking well, especially in space, requires lots of repetitions at speed. For most of the last 10 years, Huskers haven't done well at it.

To teach tackling fundamentals, you have to tackle. Not saying it has to be during a scrimmage, could be one on one training, but it seems that at least SOME tackling could be beneficial.

Practice makes perfect. You need to practice tackling to be and get better. You will lose some fundamentals when you stop tackling during the regular season. Practice is meant to get better and iron out the problem areas.

Like any other sport, practice makes perfect and the one thing you can't get rusty on throughout the season is tackling.

Stop trying to eliminate the violence in a violent game. That is one of the many things fans are drown to. If you don't want to two be injured as a player, don't play, if you don't like watching don't

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

they have talent everywhere. We have a tiny bit of talent. It's a talent landslide.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
