    What will Big 10 fans think if Nebraska is their champion?

    How will that go over in Big 10 country if Nebby wins the title in their first season?

    Most magazines have Nebby vs. OSU in the title game. Now with the Tressel thing going down, I'd say Nebby has a decent shot.

    As much as I hate Nebraska, I'd find it kinda funny if a Big 12 North team won the Big 10 title in year one.

    It looks like they won it in 1997 and 1999 I believe?

    They have a built-in excuse now when OSU isn't any good this season. The B16 is top heavy, and has been for awhile. Trust me, they won't give any due to the B12.

    Nebbie won't win the B1G....Their schedule is brutal.

    It would be pretty funny if they were to win that conference. They should have a pretty good D, so it's not impossible, although their schedule is brutal.

    It will be pretty funny to hear the Hawk fans make excuses when they lose in Lincoln this year though.

    Even if Nebraska is the best team in the conference, their schedule alone will prevent them from winning it:

    Sept. 3 Tennessee-Chattanooga at Nebraska
    Sept. 10 Fresno State at Nebraska
    Sept. 17 Washington at Nebraska
    Sept. 24 Nebraska at Wyoming 6:30 Versus
    Oct. 1 Nebraska at Wisconsin
    Oct. 8 Ohio State at Nebraska
    Oct. 22 Nebraska at Minnesota
    Oct. 29 Michigan State at Nebraska
    Nov. 5 Northwestern at Nebraska
    Nov. 12 Nebraska at Penn State
    Nov. 19 Nebraska at Michigan
    Nov. 25 Iowa at Nebraska

    According to Athlon's preseason magazine, six of Nebraska's eight conference opponents are top 40 teams. That is a brutal schedule. Nebbie will lose 2-3 conference games. That might get them to the CCG, or it might not.

    I would say that schedule is really not too bad. They have most of their toughest opponents at home which really helps and the ones on the road are very winable. Their toughest test looks like the Wisconsin road game and after that I don't see too much they should worry about too much. They definately won't finish 8-0 in the Big 10, but I would say that getting through that conference schedule with only one loss is definately possible for them.

    Nebraska was very one dimensional on offense last season...unless Taylor Martinez learned how to throw a football in the off season, their offense will continue to struggle....even more in the Big Ten then they did in the Big 12.

    Big 12 defenses are much more geared toward shutting down the pass then the run (out of necessity)...Big 10 defenses are the other way around. UNL will struggle in Big Ten play unless they are much better passing the ball in 2011 then they were in 2010.

    My guess is that UNL loses 3 Big Ten games....not sure which they'll be....but they can't take a week off with the schedule they have, and I don't think they are deep enough to bring their A game every week.

    [QUOTE=hawkfan;2263856/

    From nebraska's perspective:

    Sept. 3 Tennessee-Chattanooga at [COLOR=#ff0000]Nebraska[/COLOR] WIN
    Sept. 10 Fresno State at Nebraska WIN
    Sept. 17 Washington at Nebraska WIN
    Sept. 24 Nebraska at Wyoming 6:30 Versus WIN
    Oct. 1 Nebraska at Wisconsin LOSE
    Oct. 8 Ohio State at Nebraska WIN
    Oct. 22 Nebraska at Minnesota WIN
    Oct. 29 Michigan State at Nebraska WIN
    Nov. 5 Northwestern at Nebraska WIN
    Nov. 12 Nebraska at Penn State WIN
    Nov. 19 Nebraska at Michigan WIN
    Nov. 25 Iowa at Nebraska WIN

    [QUOTE]

    I don't see 3 losses on that schedule. @Penn State and Mich and VS Iowa are likely wins unless they are banged up. I look for them to start out 8-1

    Nebraska isn't any better than iowa, neither of which is good enough to win the conference.
