Speaking of the Michigan game, what exactly do we expect to happen in that game this weekend?

-Michigan looks much better the past 2 weeks following their loss to Notre Dame in week 1…are they going to blow Nebraska out or do you expect the Huskers to make it a game?

-A final look at the awful weekend it was for the B1G: Wisconsin loses to BYU; Northwestern loses to Akron; Maryland loses to Temple; Purdue loses to Missouri; and of course, Nebraska’s loss to Troy

Will Adrian Martinez play against Michigan?

-Andrew Bunch wasn’t horrible against Troy, but he wasn’t great. Troy stacked the box often because they didn’t really respect his passing ability, and it worked for them well. Hard to stack the box against Martinez because of all he can do with his athleticism. Will he play on the road and how much can that change things?

What will this football team look like going forward the rest of the season after an 0-2 start?

-Is this team going to win as many games as last year? What a horrible thing to ask but a fair thing to ask as they have already lost 2 games that we thought they’d win. Feels like there is almost a zero percent chance of a bowl game and its only mid-September. Unbelievable.

-So, when do we see the strides being made? This team needs to learn how to win again. Plain and simple. They have lost 6 straight games and 8 of their last 9. Even though this coaching staff won big last year, it doesn’t just change with the snap of a finger. They say they are bought in, and we believe them. But when do results happen?

The offensive line took a monumental step back on Saturday; which week was more of what to expect?

-Against Colorado, the line was awesome—maybe Colorado isn’t as good as people think, or maybe Adrian Martinez is that much harder to defend and prepare for than Andrew Bunch. But the o-line was awful Saturday, regardless. What’s to be expected going forward and why were they so bad?


Frost’s hire brought excitement, but now it’s time to accept that this might be a bigger fix than we all thought and our reality has been distorted

-We’ve heard Frost say that teams better get them now and that they should be dangerous in Year 2…that seems tough to believe after being 0-2 and losing to Troy but it just confirms that anyone who thought we’d see a miracle turnaround in year 1 was off their rocker.

-To be fair, Nebraska might win that game and (maybe) win with ease if Martinez had played and was fully healthy. But we’ll never know. But whatever could go wrong has gone wrong so far this year
