I've followed recruiting for over 15 years and I've never seen this much excitement by high level talent this early on the year. I get the feeling things are going to steamroll a bit this year.

Cuz the Huskers are getting recruits that in past years they wouldn't have a chance to get. The recruiting seems to b getting better!

When you have 4 and 5 star players with N in their top 5 it is progress. We do need to land more however but this is a start.

For offensive skill players, it has. For the offensive line, it is somewhat improved. However, defensive line recruiting is still a big concern, though linebacker and secondary recruiting seems good.

Nebraska beat out Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson and USC for Keyshawn after getting Patrick O'Brien. They're competing head-to-head with top programs and not coming in second or worse.

We are now focusing on the best players the country (though we can't expect to win the majority) and that is refreshing.

Have at least two years of top 15 recruiting then we'll talk.

Nice bump, but turned the corner? Not yet, but has potential.

Last I checked you need defensive linemen to play football. Haven't landed a d-tackle for a bit and only one 3 star d-end last year. D-linemen and corner backs are probably the most important pieces to a defense. Imo you can get away with lesser tallent at lb and safety but not dl and cb.

The recruits are geared towards a pro style offense. Not rushing. Only time will tell. It may look like 1977 again. A great passing offense but losing to teams we should beat.

One recruit does not make a class, and one good class does not make a program. Let's finish in the Top 15 in recruiting on a consistent basis before we say that we've "rounded the corner."

a couple of four star commits and a class that is no better than some over the past 8 years is not quite turning the corner.

Saying it has turned the corner only can be said a few years from now when the talent pans out.

Hold your horses. If we land a Top 15 Class for 2 consecutive years then break out the champagne; otherwise, keep your pants on.

We started out pretty fast two years ago. It's encouraging, but until we're consistently landing top fifteen classes year after year, were not there yet.

I think the recruiting is most definitely improved since Mike has been the head coach but with that said, we still have work to do and our recruiting still needs to get better.

Long way to go. Until we have 2 deep at each position and 1 additional group of 4* level talent in the redshirt group we will not be there. But this is a good start.

Until we beat the Ohio States and Michigans when it counts (BIG Championship game) THEN you can say the Huskers have turned the corner. Tell you what "If you don't ask the hottest girl to the dance, how do you know if she will say No?" Thats a Poke at The Bo and Solich era's.

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?

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.
