    Nebraska now the only Big 12 team w/o starting QB

    On Friday, Kansas named Kale Pick their starting QB for week one.

    Colorado recently named Tyler Hansen theirs.

    According to Chris Level's Twitter, Taylor Potts has been named the QB at Texas Tech.

    By my calculations, Nebraska is the only team in the league who doesn't have a set QB at this point in time.

    Nebraska is so good the ball throws itself.

    Re: Nebraska now the only Big 12 team w/o starting QB

    One of the many reasons I don't understand the Nebraska hype. On top of an unsettled QB situation, they have an underwhelming group of WRs and their RBs are no better than ours. The defense should be pretty good, but they lost five starters including their best player. Despite having a great defense last year, they actually got outgained in Big 12 play by an average of 12.3 yards per game.

    I hate to say anything good about Iowa, but if I had to pick either them or Nebraska to go to a BCS bowl, I would pick the Hawks, no question. Much more solid team all around, IMO.

    Although according to this recent KC Star article, no official decision has been made. It sure sounds like he'll be the guy though.

    Please, can anyone give me a logical and legitimate reason why Nebraska is ranked in the top 10?

    They lost the best Interior Defensive Lineman over the last decade, so naturally their defense will be much improved.

    I can't. My Iowa friends were b**ching last night about NU being ahead of Iowa in the AP poll and I don't get it either. Iowa won a BCS bowl while NU won the Holiday and Iowa returns more firepower.

    I think everybody still has the Big 12 title game in their heads and how NU almost beat Texas. The main reason they were in that game to the end was Suh and he's gone.

    Its pretty much a unanimous assumption that Carson Coffman will be the starting QB at Kansas State.

    Paul Rhoads wanted to get his first win vs a top 10 team this year so he got all of his coaching and AP writer friends to rank them high.

    Or, ABC and ESPN want to hype them up as much as they can so they can have a season long drama about them leaving the Big12. If Nebraska is just another middle of the pack team this year, who cares about them leaving?
