Agree, Whiskey is too high, I think the mighty PJ's (Minn) are also too high. Huskers are about right till they prove differently. Maryland should be higher.

I’m not sure the Huskers are about right at 8-4. Hell, it’s been 7 years since they’ve won that many. They could win that many, maybe more, but they could also lose 7-8, and that’s more in line with their current past history.

Lets see how well rounded our offense is to take advantages of opponents defenses.
Every position group is deeper except TE, and potentially greater talent even there.
I see us trending from overall scheme where options are dictated through a defenses actions to forcing defensive actions and through that occasionally taking advantage defensive reactions.
We have better athletes to press an issue so to use it makes sense, but to keep them off balance sprinkle in options along the way.
Last year that ended up AM left, AM right, it will be different this year.

NU has had better athletes than all of these teams since day one in this conference except for 2-3 teams. It hasn’t mattered. Let’s see it, then we can all jump aboard. Not before. Every year so many have high hopes, myself included, only to be let dow yet again. Show us, and everyone will be on the train.

And how did they use them?
We have had very nice stats havent we? So yes we have.
Defenses have caught up with spread to the point after adding in all the rules changes etc, more teams are going to get theres and they have, more scoring than before more equally spread, except us.
Theres a learning curve here we havent had in awhile,call it experience or being blessed to be around it while a young coach.

As has been said, we needed to catch up,and assessments are we have, now using experience plus that talent, the question remains, and where we agree is will it show up?
I'm simply saying we now have a greater chance of that now.

We are all tired of seeing our offense top 5 in the Big but scoring top 10

In an overall average B1G West … Wisconsin deserves recognition until they don’t. I personally agree that they’re too high but I think that’s more wishful thinking/hoping/projection.
