Because it shows that the coaches of this team have no clue what they are doing.

Because recruits can see what most Nebraska fans can see, and that is Pelini is really good at yelling, but not coaching.

I don't think it hurts recruiting so much when taken simply as a "loss" as it does kids not wanting to play for this lunatic, and parents agreeing with them.

Bo Pelini is not fun to play for in games when he scowls and yells till he is blue in the face. He should be calling plays to win the game and keep calm and so keep players calm.

After watching the Nebraska game vs. Wisconsin, would YOU want to play for Nebraska? Even old Husker players (in the NFL and elsewhere) were saying how embarrassing this week was going to be at work.

Best players want to play for championships and they sure don't want to be associated with regular embarrassments like this.

The recruits will see that they might get a chance to play really soon.

It won't do near the damage on recruiting that coaching would cause! I think the team could use a visit from Dr. Stark!

They will play to win. The way to win is to grind Northwestern down.

I feel we should get a somewhat comfortable lead and start grinding out 1st downs via the run game. But if Oline under-performs and forgets to show up? All bets are off.

Show off our running back talent, as they won't stop us by the end of the game.

It will likely be balanced, but slightly more runs. Whipple likes running.

Whips will probably stick to a 54/46 ratio. I know they will be seeking as much balance as possible. An early lead would help balance things back to near 50/50. Early on as they go on attack, I think it may start out close to 60/40.

It'll be pretty close to a 50/50 split, but I'll give the slight edge to the run game. From what I've read our run blocking is better than our pass blocking right now. Much like the TO days I can envision a run heavy 1st & 2nd down to avoid 3rd and longs.

There will be swing passes and screens that will act as substitutes for runs, loosen up the D and spread the defense.

I struggled with this decision. We have talent, but that hasn't been our problem recently. Execution, special teams and the O-line have been our Achille's heal (in that order). If we can improve in 2 of these areas, it should be enough to get us 7 wins.

I think our offense will score a lot more points than last year and the defense will shut more teams down on 3rd downs.

I think we may have to win one of the last four tough games to be bowl eligible.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.
