    WoooHooo we're ranked higher than Boise St

    Now let's see if we can catch K-State


    Wisconsin, Michigan St and Michigan are all ranked higher too.

    That would put us at third place in the division again. Wisconsin and Michigan at home sure won't hurt.

    I wonder how close I could come to matching those rankings with a dart board and a handfull of darts?

    I don't agree with a couple of the standings but ours is pretty accurate I guess. We really havent done much to argue something better.
    Full disclosure: I grew up in an era of Husker football when it was blasphemous for a coach to say he was "spooked" out of calling a run play. Of course, that was when hard-nosed running defined the program.

    It's difficult to establish a strong run game without firm resolve. Daily resolve. In too many instances — such as when Nebraska calls for passes on third-and-3 in four-down territory — a lack of commitment is evident.

    I agree about the Huskers and no way the cheese heads are #6.

    Wow, that guy must be a huge Husker fan to rank us that high. We should, however, be much better than #17 but you'd be hard pressed to find a lot of agreement since we haven't shown much for a decade.

    I agree. Way overrated for this coming year especially with Wilson gone. I wouldn't be surprised if they lost at least 3 conference games this year.

    Just a hunch that W. Va. and Wiscy are over-rated in this guy's opinion.

    Husker's ranking seems about right, until we can prove otherwise.

    While that's true, I don't think he were using the last decade to determine this poll. I'm thinking he was looking more into what happened last season and what he thinks will happen next.

    I hate to say this, but Michigan is going to house us, I don't care if it's at home or not as that has nothing to do with our wins and losses...

    Not at home. I see it alot like the Mich St game last year.....Huskers win or lose a close one.

    Why do people think that we have a chance since we are at home? I still don't get that....mobile QBs home or away are what kill us, not whether we have a home field advantage or not....

    Sounds about right, although I wouldn't say TMart is a good runner.
    Nebraska fans, this is called someone in your conference having your back…welcome to the Big Ten. - HawkeyeNation
