    Nebraska would likely finish 5th or 6th in the big 12 this season.

    I find it entertaining that nebraska's the highest rated team in the big 10 but would likely finish 5th or 6th in the Big 12 this year. Watched espn yesterday and the big 10 hardly gets mentioned, all the top players are from the SEC, Big 12, ACC, and Pac 12- mostly the SEC and Big 12.

    Oklahoma
    Texas A&M
    Oklahoma State
    Missouri
    Texas
    maybe nebraska?

    Re: Nebraska would likely finish 5th or 6th in the big 12 this season.

    In predictions I can see putting them behind OU, OSU & Texas A&M but not Missouri or Texas.

    I could also see predicting Neb. 2nd only to OU.

    Put down the hatorade... They wouldnt be playing OU, so that would be a huge advantage, plus they would have aTm and Ok State at home. With the schedule they would have, their toughest game would be at Missouri or at Texas, and really they could win both of those games. If they were still in the Big 12 this season, they would be predicted to have 10+ wins.

    Re: Nebraska would likely finish 5th or 6th in the big 12 this season.

    I didn't know we had so many nebraska supporters in cyclone nation? Yes they could have finish 4th in the league and being in the north would've helped. Remember that texas beat them at home last year and missouri has better skilled players and more team speed.

    Playing in the old north division does allow nebraska to finish higher than say better teams from the old south. My prediction would be if you picked the best teams in the league.

    nebraska's had the easiest path to a conference championship and a BCS game the last 10 years. How many did they win?

    No, I don't like nebraska and i'm comfortable with that. I'm also a realist and think its ok to debate the real nebraska, instead of just letting them run away from a once great conference and pointing the finger at texas as the reason.

    I would have had them 12th, losing a tough one to KU.

    Re: Nebraska would likely finish 5th or 6th in the big 12 this season.

    All I know is that Nebraska is the most talented team in the Big Ten this year. The only thing holding them back is general unfamiliarity with conference opponents.

    Im not sure what that means? But, nebraska beat OSU and MU last year and where close against OU in the CCG. Is it realism, or spite that makes you think they would be so much worse this year than last year. Calling them names from a message board wont make it so.

    Re: Nebraska would likely finish 5th or 6th in the big 12 this season.

    The better question is where will they end up in the Big ten this year. There has been a lot of hoople, but many people are not so sure what will happen. Fans may have Wiscy flu this year.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.
    Let my Fred's Four Horsemen ride: Georges, Hogue, Nader, and McKay.

    What names did I call them? They almost lost to Iowa State but I didn't even talk about that. I didn't say they would be so much worse than last year, probably about the same IMO. Just saying talent wise and team potential they probably would be somewhere around 5 or 6 in the big 12.

    Question would be whether Martinez is healthy all year. If so, I'd give them a shot at the CCG, if not they could go as low as 4th or 5th.
