Phil Steele’s assessment of Nebraska’s offensive talent compared to others in the B1G is eye-opening, to say the least

-Steele’s yearly preseason college football ‘bible’ came out last week, and although he has Nebraska having the 4th best QB room in the conference, nothing else on offense was ranked in the top part of the conference

-Wouldn’t it be nice if the team actually came out and proved this stuff wrong for once instead of confirming what is thought of before the season? Also, do you agree where they stand according to Steele’s rankings?

-Also, Jake received a good DM on potential Nebraska NIL opportunities for players…
