I guess it might be the best time to maybe catch Ohio State the more I think about it. Still will need to play really well just to keep from getting blasted. Getting smoked in game one can rattle you, and there is no time for recovery.
Unless NU is significantly better this year, they could well be 0-2 real quick, and 1-3 in the first 4 weeks.
I really don’t care if we play the Buckeyes first or last or all eight games....let’s just play ball
We need to work on ourselves and our identity as a program. Get back to being the most physical team on the field, week in, week out!
The DRAMA...the two schools that arguable brought back Big 10 football ...both renowned names to the sport...square off in a friendly grudge match. WHO WILL WIN!
And they will analyze it ad nauseum all the while praising Warren and the BiG.
TBF....this is a win, win, win for Nebraska
Free hall pass year anyway
nobody expects us to do crap
we get the added publicity
It drives into future recruits and their parents brains that Nebraska is damn SERIOUS about college football
it seasons a very young team
we get to ACTUALLY PLAY his year
Annnnd the possibility of a surprise!
