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.

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!

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...

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.

Do you see the Huskers beating the point spread against Oklahoma this weekend?

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

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.

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.

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.
