We have a stud QB and big name Defensive coordinator. Think 2003 but with a better offense. That and someone had to vote over here.

At this point it would require a miracle. Too many pieces of the puzzle missing.

Nebraska needs a unique offense and a tough defense. Not a vanilla prostyle offense.

Riley has yet to win anything of value as a head coach in American football. I would be surprised if his regular season record at Nebraska after 2018 is 29-19 or better.

I really think the current coach Riley is too comfortable with losing. He is a great person, and is knowledgeable, but a winner wins - look at what Harbaugh has done at Michigan in the same mount of time. We will see.

Because we get out-recruited year after year. NU is just another team these days. The sellout record is all that's left of a once great program. That will end soon as well.

The good news is Neb always has the schedule to win a national championship. But they must stop doing the same things in terms of recruiting, facilities, and coaching expecting different results. I love their recruiting now but there are many facits to success.

I feel we are headed in the right direction, but we will need 2-3 years to get there. I expect only 7-9 wins this coming season.

we might compete in some years, and fall off in other years. to me elite means year in and year out, and that won't ever happen. fan base and admin won't allow for a 25 year tenure in coaching any more....

It's a process. We are on our way in the right direction with Riley and Co. at the helm. It all starts with the return on Blackshirt-caliber defense.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Once again, the south stadium gets short changed.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

who wants to pay for tickets and sit in the south endzone? Not me! ill just watch on tv. And lets be honest the sellout streak will end if we dont start winning.

People had time to think over what was bothering them about the former plans.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

Good to slow down and have another set of eyes relook at everything.

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

Compensation changes the entire dynamic of college athletics, and not in a positive way.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.

They are compensated with room and board plus an education. The perks they get as athletes now are unbelievable!!!
