I don't believe Coach Riley will use the pure West Coast offense. He has commented and the virtue of multiple set pass- run options. The offense will be similar to what we have seen the last three years.

Riley has said quite often he will adapt what his system with what the players can do. I know he recruited Stanton but he was a cali kid in pac 12 country.

Tommy is this best QB we have regardless of the system. Coach Riley will coach him up.

1 1/2 years starting is a lot of experience. If the new coach plays to this teams strength it will be hard not to. If he's looking for a pocket passer he may be out. Remember when he sits in the pocket he can't remember which way his receivers are going.

No, because Riley will install the offense he used at Oregon State which will primarily be a West Coast System. It will be Stanton at QB next year. You heard it first right here.

Average thrower at best. Johnny Stanton will be the guy.

Stanton has the best arm of the lot. It was shown this year that the difference between 9-4 and 12-1 or 13-0 was the fact that we couldn't consistently pass when it really counted. If we have a quality QB that can make those throws we might have been in the Playoff this year and Riley knows it.

Stanton was recruited by Riley, plus I believe he can complete check down passes to the running back, a problem we've had the last 2 years.

Great option QB, but those days are over. Too many bad throws (lucky for the USC drops) ; likely it's Stanton.

Mike Riley is a huge Stanton fan. And let's face it . Every time Armstrong drops back to pass , we have to hold our breath and hope he throws it to the right team.

Johnny Stanton will win the job because he is a more complete QB

Unless he can consistently make the throws in the short and medium range, he will sit. He needs to be consistent. Throwing a 65 yard strike is nice, but it also helps to make the throws to just move the chains.

I hope he isn't because if he is the best we have for 2015, then you can expect 3-4 losses next year as well. Sub par throwing, can't read routes and not a pocket passer.

two years of 50% passing... I don't think we need a third.

The guy is wildly inconsistent. Very indecisive. Locks in on one receiver. We need a better passer. My money is on Stanton, but I think Darlington is a possibility along with Bush. I also wonder if a junior college kid is a possibility.

Hasn't mastered progressions, patience in the pocket and most importantly, self confidence. Thought he might have what it takes but he does not!!

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.
