Nebraska is among the schools using virtual and augmented reality technology for training.
Is that where they pretend they are still a national power?

Couldn't pass that one up.

no need to be sorry


Skers need that to help with the motivation to succeed

Oregon Set To Wear White At Home vs. Nebraska




This means the Huskers may wear red on the road for the first time in over 40 years.

Coach Mike Riley announced after practice on Thursday that six walk-ons have been placed on scholarship: junior center Cole Conrad, senior fullback Luke McNitt, senior tight end Tyler Hoppes, senior tight end Connor Ketter, senior wide receiver Gabe Rahn and senior wide receiver Brett Classen.


The Huskers had eight scholarships to work with after entering fall camp with 77 players on scholarship.

Defense not very assertive, not good sign for next week.

The O-line, D as a whole was suspect. Pretty much the whole preseason thread nailed it?

Bryant had to work for most of his 190.  Lee did make some really good throws, but did get away with two passes.

Nebraska appeared weaker than I thought, still it was a win. I will estimate a 7-5 season, based upon this result and the challenging schedule ahead. Rutgers and Purdue are no gimmes, but I am including those games in the 7-win column.

hopefully, Diaco has plenty up his sleeve for the Ducks

AND the defense makes a huge improvement between game one and game two

as I thought, the offense looks better with a QB that can throw the ball

this week in Husker history

1932: Nebraska is part of what Pitt's coach describes as a daunting schedule as he tries to set low public expectations for his Panthers. (They would play in the Rose Bowl after an 8-0-2 regular season, which included a 0-0 tie in Lincoln.)

Against the odds: Since the betting line on Saturday’s matchup between Nebraska and Oregon opened yesterday, the Huskers' odds have grown longer seemingly by the hour. Most sports books had Oregon favored by about nine points on Sunday afternoon. By late afternoon Monday, VegasInsider.com had the Ducks at -14 and showed 63 percent of betters taking the hosts to cover.

The sheet i follow actually opened at +2, which I thought was missing the '1'.  It then raced to +8, then later ran to +14.
