Who are the difference-makers for Nebraska?

-A texter chimes in and points out that the last difference-maker at Nebraska was Suh in 2009. Sip and Jake talk about how a lack of these types of players has affected Nebraska.

-This topic raises the question…does Nebraska have a player development issue?

-Would a consistent system and unified culture solve the issue?

ESPN.com’s post-spring Top 25 rankings for 2021 have Nebraska facing 4 Top 25 teams this upcoming year…what game is the most winnable/important for the Huskers?

-Oklahoma is No. 1 (!!) in the polls, with Ohio State at No. 5, Iowa at No. 14, and Wisconsin at No. 18. Nebraska plays the last 3 of those all in the month of November. Fun!

-What’s more telling about this poll is where some teams Nebraska should absolutely be in the same conversation as every year are ranked. Iowa State is 6th, Cincinnati is 9th, Indiana is 11th, Louisiana-Lafayette is 16th (!!), and Coastal Carolina is 21st. We saw these teams have success last year and the past few years, but it’s still stunning to see those numbers by them
