Mike Schaefer (247 Sports/Huskers Illustrated): Part 1

-Iowa and Wisconsin fans probably are laughing right now at the idea of Nebraska going from 4-8 to winning the West; they no doubt saw progress to end the year, but it’s not like those programs are going in the dumpster…

-What do other Big Ten coaches think about the huge projected leap by Nebraska? What SHOULD they believe? And what do they tell their teams? Feels like Nebraska might have a circle around them on the schedule now to keep them down a peg and make them earn their praise

-Nebraska’s o-line coach was on Sports Nightly on Tuesday and was discussing the likes of Bryce Benhart, Ethan Piper, Jimmy Fritzsche, and Matthew Anderson, among others. How optimistic are Sip and Jake about their outlook and how optimistic should fans be about it, in general?
