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

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
