Considering we don't have an identity for the offense, coupled with new coaches this has to be the biggest question mark going into 2015. QB questions, running backs, receivers and now likely TE's in the mix it will be interesting what gets rolled out on September 5th.

Who will be the next starting QB? This is the biggest question the Huskers have this season.

Defense will be simplified and will let the horses run. Offense is about timing, and comfort in a system.

Seems that Riley and staff know more about offense than defense. Not sure what to make of the defense, but I felt that the Pelini ran defense required NFL caliber talent, and it was much too complicated. If it's simplified, I think our defense can be a strength. I just have more questions on this side of the ball scheme-wise. Offense I'm completely optimistic.

Great defense wins game. More so than great offencse. The gret defense keeps th e other team out of th end zone.No scoring against your team.

You can have an average offense and still win a championship as long as you have a great defense! Defense wins championships!

Leipold will likely prefer the Husker job over the Badgers for three reasons, and it's quite possible he would keep a few of the existing staff, namely Joseph and Busch.

Leipold will likely stay at KU. Why? Because his contract will be renegotiated in a big way and if you win over half your games as a HC at Kansas you will be the all time winning coach ever. Jack Mitchell is number one. You will have long time security in this day and age of firing coaches.

Campbell isn't B1G quality. We can and will do much better. ISU is a 4th tier fbs team. We are a blue blood. We are not the same.

I kind of doubt it because I believe Leipold would go to Wisconsin now that they fired Chryst and I don't think Aranda would come. That leaves Gundy, which is possible. Personally, I'd love to see it work out for MJ. GBR!!!!

I'll go with no. As the Baylor coach didn't leave for more money laden pastures last year. And the KU coach mayget a full court press from Wisconsin.

Indiana nearly lost to IU & WKU and the W over Idaho wasn't that impressive. They allowed IU RB Chase Brown 199 yds and WKU RB Kye Robichaux 135 yds. Grant, Ervin, Johnson & Yant will have a big day and help keep the defense off the field.

Motivation by Mickey, simpler defense and a week of focus on individual technique will get the Huskers on track...IF there is any on-field leadership from the players.

With the shock of losing a head coach and DC behind them, they two weeks of refocus and reset will benefit this talented team and the Huskers will have new inspiration to win this next contest.

I believe in MJ enough that I do believe he will somehow have found a way to get this team ready to perform up to their capabilities. After the NW gm, SF said the guys needed something to believe in. They have to start with themselves. MJ will have em' believing!

Unfortunately, the skers may not win again this year. They not be lookin too good. No offense but, enough of the dumb polls till they get better.

As of right now, the defense cannot stop anybody, the offense is absolutely anemic, team moral is in the toilet, we are on the road against an improved IU team. Outside of all that, I think we have a great shot.

The D-line for the Huskers will not be good enough to stop Indiana. The O-line will allow too many sacks.

I have seen no evidence, given the lack of coaching so far, that this team can rise to the challenge.

I think the team is lost even though MJ is the coach. It will be a reasonable effort, but ultimately, it will be a loss.

“Recruiting beats coaching”… true for skill positions, but not true for OL, DL, and LB positions. Very poor player development at NU and too late now that the season in underway. Wonder what Benhart would be like had he chose Iowa or Wisconsin.

This team has been neglected for several years. Frost, it seems, spent more time on personal problems but was happy to take the salary. My gut feeling is he was trying to get fired BEFORE Oct 1st and he did everything he could to do that, including the onside kick.

No reason to start winning now. MJ seems like a great coach but you have a front line that does not want to protect the QB. They look like the basketball team with no will nor want. As Tom Kropp said when he chose Kearney St BB over UNL “they can make a good player bad”

Team not motivated and not playing with energy and enthusiasm. Need new coaches to motivate them.
