    Am I the only one that really isn't that worried?

    I think this Kent State game will be a good test for us tomorrow and it will tell us a lot about the team, but I would be really surprised and disappointed if we lost. They lost a lot of good players to the NFL last year and they got torched by every BCS conference team they faced and even lost to Buffalo 41-14. Honestly, somebody convince me why I should be really worried. I know we didn't light it up last year, maybe I'm overconfident, but honestly... it's still Kent State we're talking about here.

    Re: Am I the only one that really isn't that worried?

    I looked at Toledo, UNI and UNLV last year as..."Pfffffffft - whatever!" teams.

    All three nearly (and perhaps should have) beat us.

    So...I'm gonna be a bit tense for every game this year. I will, of course, be quite surprised and disappointed if we lose.

    Re: Am I the only one that really isn't that worried?

    Totally agree. This is a make or break game. The season gets no easier as time goes on. This could be the easiest game to win all season. Hey, we have to be much more disciplined and organized than we were last year. Dan spent all last year saying there was no competition and how pathetic the practuices were in the fall., i habve not heard that. And we have the non minister to help us out. My bigger concern is level of recruiting we have approached. Looks like we will have to win a few games before anyone commits.

    Kent State is a biggy. If we lose, recruits will be reminded by others of our plight. Heck, Nebraska cannot even win 10 games with 4/5 stars!

    New coach, new system, 4 wins last year all coming in the last seconds.

    Yep, I'm not exactly putting this one in the win column just yet. Although the more I've looked into Kent State, the less I am worried. They might have won 6 games last year, but they had some BAD losses and no real quality win that I can see. Atleast we beat Mizzou last time out and it appears fall practice has gone fairly well and not many injuries. I'd be surprised if we lost, but I know it's a possibility.

    MAC teams make me nervous. They have this annoying habit of being better than people give them credit for.

    That and they are jacked up to play a Big 12 team in transition. It would be like us playing Miami FL or something to that effect.

    Clark Kent State? They are not supermen. Our crying towels ought to be worth 7 points by themselves.

    Re: Am I the only one that really isn't that worried?

    I wouldn't say I am worried...even in the triple OT against Toledo last year I really wasn't worried, I was sure we would(eventually)pull out a win. While I am not counting it as a win before it even begins, I am very confident(maybe overly so)that once the dust settles, we will be 1-0.

    Re: Am I the only one that really isn't that worried?

    At this point i am a bit worried we don't pull this one out. We should win, but I really don't have a feel for what this team can do until I see them on the field, and I have last years debacle running though my head influencing my feelings. right now IMO I say about 80-20 we win.

    What really worries me is how the fan base will react if we don't pull this one out or the UNI game. Will fans react with understanding? Or will many run the team and Chizik into the ground?

    Re: Am I the only one that really isn't that worried?

    Can you imagine the disappointment if we lose this game? After all the Season Ticket sales and optimism surrounding the program?

    Scary to think about.... (gulp)

    The good news is that there is no f'n way Chizik and Co. will lose tomorrow night. No way. None.

    That would suck some serious balls, and I think Chiz and everybody is aware of it. No way it happens.
