ESPN is a joke. I've lost all respect for (s)E(c)SPN. Don't watch them, don't visit their web site, don't really care what they do, or where they rank the 'Skers.

The "culture" of Nebraska Football has already started to change for the better with Scott Frost & Crew at the helm. More personal accountability and true competition for playing time has been lacking for a long time. That will change this season.

ESPN will pay dearly for their low Nebraska rating!

Not worried. The ranking means nothing. When the play on the field proves otherwise, the ranking will change. GBR!

I believe that ESPN and their preseason ranking of the Huskers is because they are looking at the past and not the future of this great program. GBR Steve Walker, a TRUE Husker fan in VOL country.

ratings doesn't mean anything until they play. Hopefully the cornhuskers will get back to being dominate in college football.

Actually, I don't give a hoot about ESPN and their FPI rating. I want to see the Big Red Machine take to the field this fall and WIN football games. Win/loss record, that the stat that counts.

I did want to say lower, but I think it's fair. There are so many unknowns at this point. how do you rank a team that hasn't played?

There are to many unknowns. Most of the rating is because of last years poor showing and new coaching staff. N will win at least 8 this year. Only the schedule and new system will prevent them from winning the west div this year.

A better team with better coaching... but the tough schedule will mask improvements. Look to 2019 instead.

you can't go from the outhouse at 4-8 to a middle of the row seat, things have to be proven and earned first, no gimmes

I don't get excited about recruiting anymore. Too many commits flip and it's rare for a recruit to play his whole career at one school.

We only have legit shot at one of them. This class is underwhelming so far.

I’m an offensive guy. Gimme David Sanders and a speedy receiver and I’ll be happy.

LOL Sanders isn't coming to Nebraska

Do you think Nebraska has one of the easier conference football schedules in the Big Ten in 2024?

Starting with Ohio State, Oct 26, the balance of the season is against very formidable teams. Big Red needs to do well in the first seven games to be bowl eligible.
