The recruiters are going to close strong

Not likely - these guys have never recruited very well. I see this class being 6, 7 or even 8th in the big ten and that won't cut it.

This Q asks if there are positive signings upcoming–not currently. Reilly is closing in on several 3 & 4 star recruits and should land them soon. NE has not been w/ the big boys for awhile so expecting 5 star recruits now is ridiculous. Lets just aim for a top 20-25 class this year and build w/ that

The 4 and 5 star recruits start developing relationships as sophomores so it's gonna take a few years to really get this machine rolling

Lets be serious...it can't be any worse than Pelini's recruiting and then having a good number of players leaving the program due to him. Look at the recruits that played this year..better than Pelini's starters

really? Are you serious? Or just trying to get a laugh! Pelini's recruits are the starters. Stanley morgan was a peleini recruit - only Reilly recruit to see th efield was the LB and that was due to them being thin there and having injuries.

Kevin Bolin you are right on, I agree with you. We will find out very soon on signing day just how bad it is.

I believe that Riley is a better recruiter than Bo Pelini was.This year will be better than last year, and next year will be better than this year. If this doesn't happen, then we will be looking for a new head coach.

Always hoping for the best. A good attitude and some good coaching can make much out of no-matter-how-many-stars a player has.

They seem to have stalled and the talent level being pursued does not appear to be at the level necessary to play with the big boys again.

Riley is in his 60's and Eichorst might not be around NU too much longer. That and the poor record last year doesn't promise much stability or success over the next 4-5 years for recruits.

No. Just read this stat. "The Big Ten East division has 52 of the conference's 60 4-star recruits this year" We need to step up our game and start bringing in talent if we want to compete with OSU/UM/PSU/MSU.

All of this talk about what Riley & Co. could do with the resources available at Nebraska, and they have done very little. We need Top 15 classes in order to compete for championships... instead we'll finish closer to 40

You are so right! Look at Oregon St. now that he is gone - they have a much better recruiting class with their new coach then Reilly ever had there. They may even finish in the top 30; so don't try to blow smoke at me and tell me he and his staff are good recruiters.

in general yes, this year, not really. I think their focus is on 2017 although that may be a mistake unless we have some great Jems from previous classes (redshirts) we are unaware of.

Not necessarily Riley's fault... times have changed and the Husker name draw is now just so-so. Roughly middle of the pack class in the Big10.

You hire a big-name coach such as Saban or Harbaugh or similar, and the kids will go to Alaska to play for him. Nobody cares about Riley; he's not a hot commodity. It's as simple as that.

I don't have much enthusiasm for this whole Mike Riley staff. Seems like a nice guy, but not a successful coach by Nebraska's standards by any means.

We just keep coming up short on the high profile kids so it is a bit discouraging, but having said that I LOVE the fact that we are going after high profile players. I'm very optimistic that this staff WILL bring in the players needed, but it would seem this year we just don't have the draw.

you need to take your rose colored glasses off and see this staff for what it is Riley left the cupboard bare in Oregon st. when he left and he will do so at UN too best not let him stay long

I'm just still not impressed with Riley and staff - Even if the guy recruits at the top of the heap for the next few years, and starts putting together some wins, he will be set for retirement in 5 or 6 years (or earlier if the wins don't start coming), and then we start over AGAIN! GBR!!!

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.

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.
