Yes they will, because the right system is in place, the right attitude has been instilled, the right coaching is in place, and the talent is there.

Why? Riley & co will coach like their rear ends are on fire this season. If they have another season like last season, they'll all be looking for other jobs.

too many narrow defeats and a period of change. If Tommy flips the "decision-making" switch, the Skers could be dangerous. DL will retool and secondary/LS's will be improved by experience and depth

11 0r 12 wins isn't out of reach. It depends, if Nebraska throw the ball 15-25 a game (10-13 wins) or, if they go for the 45+ throws (6-8 wins). It's not rocket science!!!

With all the spring hype as usual, eight wins are only the tip of the iceberg. Of course, the reality in fall may be different! It's fun to be on the band wagon, but I hate falling off every fall.

At worst they win 8, more than likely end up 9-3 or 10-2 if we are lucky.

Mike Riley has seen the results of Nebraska's tradition and comfort level while running the ball. And if he takes to heart that you have to run on first down to be a running team, we will be fine. I think he gets it.

I see a 10 win season on the horizon. We have talent galore and MR is the man to bring us to a 10 win regular season.

I'm hearing the same spring game plan offensively and expect to see the same fall execution. That paired with a more difficult schedule leaves me with little hope for improvement. We need some coaches that realize that college ball is very different from pro ball and who adjust accordingly.

Looking at the schedule, I see 5 losses in the regular season. I predicted 5 wins last season. Time will tell.

Too many tough road games...OSU, Iowa, Wisconsin, Northwestern. We'll probably lose to Oregon then either split those 4 tough road games and find a way to blow another home game or lose 3 of the 4 road games. I feel like 8-4 is our cap unless we have some magical Iowa-like run and no injuries.

We'll see 8 wins tops if Riley decides to pass the ball 40 times a game, but a more balanced offense with limited pass attempts from Armstrong could result in 10 wins or so.

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.

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.
