I'm an eternal Husker optimist. The defense will be solid and talent aside, the offense can improve simply by executing. Special teams will look better with improved punting to go with our FG kicking. Any other year I'd say at least 7 wins, but next year's schedule is brutal.

They're due right? And since I'm 42, and used to us winning 9 games every year for most of my life why would I change my expectation now? 8-4, win the bowl game, 9-4. Should be the minimum expectation for every Nebraska fan. Always! Then with playoff expansion coming, let's get in the mix!! GBR

Of the 3 things needed to win; player acquisition, development and deployment, acquisition is the best predictor of future success. By far in fact. Our roster is built because of great recruiting, development and roster management. It's really kinda all on the coaches to deploy well. If they do, yes

Better o line makes a running game. 4 large backs doesn't hurt.

It's a more complete team across-the-board. Defense should be a top 25 group

Strongest SF team yet. We've been close to beating our west div tormentors for the last 2 years. It happens this year. 3 wins vs Wi-IA-MN-Nw-Mi.

Absolutely, between the football and basketball teams should get to 8 wins in 2021.

I'm a fan and I think they can win them all. If you don't think so, be a colorado fan.

I want to believe they can, but until the issues going on over the last several years stop....it's going to be more of the same.

Even with the difficult schedule they have the talent to get 8 wins. Unfortunately, this will also take team execution, discipline and a swagger we have yet to see. I'm hoping for 6 wins and a bowl. Anything more is gravy.

Huskers have not shown ability to beat even avg teams and are much more likely to LOSE one of the games they should win. then upset a team that they are underdogs in. This looks like a bubble 6 win team, at best.

But at least they’re not in the Big 12 any more, am I right? High five!

Not a chance, not with the schedule and no proven on-field play to show otherwise

Huskers does not have the will to win close games. They are 2 years away from winning the close games.

I have to see a decent downfield passing game first before I start getting too optimistic.

Why would we think this team could win 8 games? I always had rose colored glasses on over the last couple of decades. I took them off and, whew, Steve Pederson screwed us. Prove it to me!!!

Do you see Omar Manning beating JD Spielman's 49 catches for 898 yards in 2019?

Sure why not? He looked fantastic during the spring game. Could have been better but...could get there or come close.

I'll reserve judgment until we've seen him consistently come down with catches in traffic over the course of a season. A JD in hand is better than 2 Omar's in the bush.

No clue yet - he's got all the measurements but has yet to be healthy until now. I think key will be can he stay healthy and can he play through minor injuries.
