If you think Nebraska’s rush defense is good, this is the week to prove that ahead of B1G play

-Fordham moved the ball with ease the first few drives of the game on Saturday, and Illinois had success for most of the game against Nebraska, too

-There was thought at some point that Nebraska might have an elite rush defense, and they haven’t been through 2 weeks, but it’s time to prove that it’s possible

-Other comments from coaches post-practice on Tuesday…

-How confident should Nebraska fans feel going into this weekend’s Buffalo game?

-It looks like, through 2 games, that Markese Stepp is the best running back on the team…will we see him get the bulk of the carries going forward?

-Nebraska’s pass rush was strong against Illinois but weak against Fordham…what happened?

Sports bettors seem to be getting more confident in Nebraska’s chances to win comfortably on Saturday…are we missing something?

-Nebraska lost to Illinois and beat an FCS team, but the line has gone from -11.5 to -14 in favor of Nebraska in the last 2 days

-Is this a show of confidence in Nebraska and their potential for the season or not? Brett McMurphy didn’t have Nebraska in a bowl game in his most recent projection

-People know that if Nebraska loses this game, they have pretty much zero chance of a bowl game..right? Can they handle the pressure?

In 2021 and going forward, what is the view of 9 win seasons for Husker football?

-It got 2 coaches fired; and a third fired coach (Mike Riley) did have one 9-win season in his 3 seasons at Nebraska

-We’ve been humbled, horrified, and crushed the last 6 seasons. The ‘given’ 9 wins (terrible assumption) is anything but that now. We’ve already apologized on air to Bo and Frank. So let’s move forward. What’s the view if Nebraska gets to a constant 9 win threshold again?
