Too much talent to be wasted sitting these guys. Give the rock to Wilbon and Ozigbo and Newby. Add in Spielman and DPE too.

We will have a qb that cannot run. So only one back is not enough options.

initially by committee until we find out if we have that one back that can emerge from the back. It is too early to tell.

talent is key. If you don't have an every down back, don't force somebody into that role

Lots of good backs. I want to see Adam Taylor used. He is a beast!

If we run the ball 35-40 times a game we need more than 1 IB to step it up.

Why recruit them to sit on the bench. Just find/hire an OC who knows something about it!

We need to use the fullback like the end of last year.Also running 60% or more requires a committee approach.

Back in the day Thurman Thomas and Barry Sanders were both on the roster for OSU. Would you have left Thomas ride the bench? Now we aren't blessed with that depth, but both are solid. Fresh legs matter!

Newby has the most talent...but that kid Ozigbo has great vision!! I would start Ozigbo

Must be the right back though. WIth their ability to get yards as the primary motivating factor rather than their ability to pass protect.

I feel it gives the back the reps he needs to get into rhythm and grow throughout the year

However... It would depend on how things go in any game. If a couple of backs do the job great also. But if one guy with a fullback and or another back can do it... Fine.

One back approach is the best with a back to give spells when needed...look at Abdullah..that's what we need to go to

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

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

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.

they have talent everywhere. We have a tiny bit of talent. It's a talent landslide.

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.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

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.
