We would have beaten MSU last year if we hadn't turned the ball over 5 times! That was due mostly to inexperience. It's somewhat different this year! Armstrong has been under fire and seems to be doing much better. He needs to stay calm. Our Players need to go into this game with a chip on their shoulder. We're NEBRASKA! MSU isn't any different than any other team we play! We need to dominate! Shove it right down their throat! Go Big Red!

Rushing yards won't be easy to come by - but they won't for MS either. Play mistake-free ball and we have a chance.

Haven't seen any team yet to win a game with multiple turn-overs.

Turnovers, usually a team that is +1 over their opponent wins. There is a NFL spreadsheet that is talked about on talk radio that has the exact stats. The gist is 90% of the time the team that doesn't turn the ball over and gains a turn over wins. NU needs no turn overs and MSU could help us out by having 2.

Without a doubt.... The rushing yards don't mater if we have a bunch of turnovers.... (see 2013)

A turnover can cancel the effect of many yards. Let's force turnovers while not allowing our own. Let the effect work for us.

Simplicity, if you can demoralized with turnovers and capitalize on opportunities, then the % chance of win increases.

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.

That's just part of the deal now with the portal, particularly after a coaching change. People may not care too much for it but we better all get used to it because it's not going anywhere.

If they enter transfer portal, they are not willing to work, and play tough. Let them go elsewhere

The new staff needs the freedom to get the players that will fit their system. The kids that leave or stay away are no guarantees either.

In the spring the head coach and assistants will start their work. They, in effect, will ride the horse upon which they came, the players on the field. It is up to the coaches to either develop those players or to fail. We will see the result in August.

With the coaching changes, its only prudent for players to re-evaluate their decisions to make sure its best fit for them. If I was a father of a player, i would encourage the re-evaluation process and if they re-commit, Great! Otherwise best of luck to both sides.
