Can anyone catch up to the 5 or 6 teams in college football?

-Watching the championship game reminds you of how far Nebraska is away, but they are not alone.

-How much, if any would expanding the playoffs help? What is more important to you, an entertaining product or crowning the best team throughout the season?

-Can you ever consider a one loss team the greatest of all-time?

-Are you less interested in the national scene when Nebraska isn’t competitive?

What is the state of the Nebraska football program as we close out Year 3 of the Scott Frost era?

-Nebraska will either be 3-5 on the season after today, or 2-6….which equates to 12-20 or 11-21 under Scott Frost in his 3 years at Nebraska

-This year’s recruiting class was solid once again, getting to No. 18 in Rivals’ rankings, and with a lot of players from the 500-mile radius. Do we believe in the talent that has been brought to Lincoln? What are our thoughts on the coaching staff’s abilities?

Is the College Football Playoff already set or can drama this weekend change things up?

-Right now, the top 4 is: Alabama, Notre Dame, Clemson, and Ohio State. Clemson has 1-loss, but they are a favorite over Notre Dame, mainly because Trevor Lawrence is back this time…who gets in if Clemson loses again, though?

-If Ohio State loses to Northwestern and Clemson loses to Notre Dame…who ends up in the playoff?

Today is (possibly) Nebraska’s last football game of the season…what’s your level of optimism and interest for the game?

-Rutgers enters today’s game with more B1G wins on the season in Greg Schiano’s first year back with the program that Nebraska, which is utterly astounding, but a truth

-The concept of everyone playing on conference championship weekend is unique and welcomed in this strange year, but Nebraska plays on the day before, because they are at the bottom of the standings

-Are people jacked to watch football today and tonight? Or nervous of a loss to Rutgers?
