Not because of the loss, but because of the injury to AM,

We actually beat ourselves. Too many turnovers, mistakes, penalities and gave up too many third and long situations. Good teams don't do this.

I thought before the game there was a good chance Nebraska would lose. However it's the way the game slipped away at the end that made me disappointed.

We dominated the game. Costly mistakes at the worst times really hurt us.

I live in Colorado, CU fans are acting like they just won the national championship. I have to deal with this for an entire year. We dominated the game and somehow still lost.

This was the toughest loss since NU lost to Texas in the Big 12 Championship. Also because it was to CU. Their classless fans will rant about it until next September. That was a gift to CU.

It just seems to sting more when you know you beat yourself! We found numerous ways to lose this game. Hard to stomach. Being CU makes it that much worse.

First game mistakes that would have been ironed out in the Akron game.

We're playing with Riley's players (except for AM and Bell). I was excited about 7 sacks, a QB that can run AND pass! Imagine what happens when Frosty has his recruits and a 2 years under his belt!

Playing with Rileys recruits is NO excuse.

They played a tough opponent and outplayed them in most categories. This Husker team looked ferocious and strong through all 4 quarters, which is a welcome change. Plus, some of those calls...

They played hard for 60 minutes, Frost has already produced more results than Riley.

Huskers win the game if only one turnover was not lost and I hate to say it but the officials were horrible as usual.

As a coach myself all you can do is look for constant improvement and the wins will take care of themselves. We already have half the sacks we had last year....

The offense looks really potent and the defense was flying to the ball in a way that we have not seen in a while.

If last years team fell behind 14-0 in the 1st Q, they would have buckled and folded and lost by a wide margin. This team played like they expected to win by 50. Had this been game 2, they'd have won.

We're light-years ahead of where we were last year. 10-1 says if that ass-hat #44 didn't put that extra twist on Martinez' ankle, we win this game! Even with the 1st game jitter silliness...

So many encouraging things to take away. Some mistakes against a decent team in the very first game of the season, but the way we ran the ball, the way we got pressure on the qb, most of qb play, etc

Players played w excitment, enthusism and physicality. Turn overs are a killing, dropped passes don't help. Young excited team who will rebound, reboot and realign. Got'a love thiose Huskers!!

solid play after spotting 14 points. Last year's Huskers would have spiraled to at least a 35 point loss.

CU was not better. The Huskers had a lot of mistakes that cost them the game. I see a lot of good things on D and O that were missing the last few years. The future is bright. GBR!!!

Huskers are mostly a young team with no previous game played. NU was the better team Saturday, our mistakes caused the loss, many of the mistakes may have been solved had Akron been played.

It's disappointing but the team made first game mistakes that can be corrected. NU was probably a better team but CU was a more experienced team.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

Compensation changes the entire dynamic of college athletics, and not in a positive way.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.

They are compensated with room and board plus an education. The perks they get as athletes now are unbelievable!!!
