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.

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.

First game is always vanilla on offense. They will try to establish the run with basic run formations.

Slightly more runs than passes... if we are smart. Or it's going to be a long year.

Oline should dominate a transfer portal depleted Northwestern front and get the practice running the ball that is needed to win in the BIG.

They will play to win. The way to win is to grind Northwestern down.

I feel we should get a somewhat comfortable lead and start grinding out 1st downs via the run game. But if Oline under-performs and forgets to show up? All bets are off.

Show off our running back talent, as they won't stop us by the end of the game.

It will likely be balanced, but slightly more runs. Whipple likes running.

Whips will probably stick to a 54/46 ratio. I know they will be seeking as much balance as possible. An early lead would help balance things back to near 50/50. Early on as they go on attack, I think it may start out close to 60/40.

It'll be pretty close to a 50/50 split, but I'll give the slight edge to the run game. From what I've read our run blocking is better than our pass blocking right now. Much like the TO days I can envision a run heavy 1st & 2nd down to avoid 3rd and longs.

There will be swing passes and screens that will act as substitutes for runs, loosen up the D and spread the defense.

I struggled with this decision. We have talent, but that hasn't been our problem recently. Execution, special teams and the O-line have been our Achille's heal (in that order). If we can improve in 2 of these areas, it should be enough to get us 7 wins.

I think our offense will score a lot more points than last year and the defense will shut more teams down on 3rd downs.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.
