    As of right now without seeing anything officially... I would be shocked if we lost to Minnesota. I think losing to Purdue or Wisconsin is more likely.

    This is the year Nebraska can beat Wisconsin, but until Nebraska does, then you have to take Wisconsin over Nebraska. I am.

    If Wisconsin does not have a QB, that will make the outcome a little more likely. If Jonathon Taylor is hurt by the time the Nebraska game rolls around, that will also be nice. Wisconsin has to play Ohio State and Iowa before the Nebraska game.

    I predict Nebraska to lose to Ohio State and Wisconsin right now. As in - for sure losses.

    Was taking a look at total reg season wins for Nebraska and my bookie has 8. I’m very tempted to take that over. But I really wish it was 7.5 and then I’d dumped a bunch of money on it. Debating what to do. Every single one of Nebraska’s tough games look like they are at home. Even if they would lose 3 of them (I don’t see that happening) it’d only take a loss at Purdue or Minnesota to push the bet. I’m stuck.

    I hear ya. Given the schedule, I am in the mode that...

    8-4 or worse = Not happy.
    9-3 or better = Happy.

    And I haven't been very happy lately. So I don't really know what to expect coming into this year.

    Yeah, I’m a little uneasy about betting 9 wins from a team that went 4-8 the year before. On the other hand you guys could have won 9 games last year if things would have turned out differently in several of those games. I’ll probably take it because I truly think you’ll hit 9. But I’m going to wait until probably the week before the season starts.

    Nebraska needs to beat Iowa this year in order to save face seeing how the Hawkeyes have beaten the Cornhuskers the past five out of six years.

    Iowa is like Missouri. They can always boast about beating bad Nebraska teams.
