The season is here. So is the return of COVID and masks. Sigh. Looks like we should get at least one game in! Let's hope there aren't any forfeits which could make for odd teams having success that shouldn't.
Tough week for Frost already. Investigations are now known by all to be going on. Then he has one of the weirder NU HC pressers since the Pelini era. The guy already looks exhausted (or laser focused? lol) and the season is barely underway. What to expect?
It's well known IL has a TON of players coming back. And a better head coach in Beliema. I suppose there will be a few jet sweeps. Probably a pretty good game plan. What's ours? Has Frost finally accepted a more dedicated run approach from someone other than his QBs? Will we get cutesy-wutesy early? Will he just have to try some fantastic play that has worked so well in practice? Can we get turnovers? Not have any?
So many questions. I guess we probably win. But I'm not convinced it will be by a lot. 7 is a pretty good number though the O/U seems high unless we somehow blow them out. The Prophet says:
NU 26 IL 20
Koolaid is strong in this one!
Huskers by 17!!!!
38 to 20 Illinois. No fancy math after the fact Trash-LOL.
No clue what Illnois bring to the table. Lots of players back from a bad team. If you believe the kool aide in the paper we win in a walk over. Doubt that happens.

Media hypes Nebraska as 'experienced' but lacking 'experience'.
Sounds about right.
Cornhuskers/Bugeaters/Herbie/Harry - 31
Mascot-less fighting whatever team - 21
Could be a defining game for the season, an early loss could put us on track for what we have seen the last 3 years. A convincing win, D , O , special teams, excel in all areas of play, we could be rooting in a bowl game. Bret the B sees a vulnerable team to make a statement win, to open up his campaign in Champaign ... damn it we are going to a bowl this year...
NU D smashes Bret's little dream.. NU 38, - Ill-13

Nono wins the first prediction thread! TomOs wins the Kool-Aider award!
