    The Huskers are planning a big visit weekend and will host five of the top prospects in the country. HuskersIllustrated.com has a list of nine visitors and growing. Which four-star athlete will be watching the defense on Saturday? Will Blake Lawrence be there for Nebraska or is he just in town to see the Jayhawks play? There will be a lot of talent in Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

    40-15 is not something Nebraska fans will forget anytime soon. The Kansas Jayhawks embarrassed Nebraska last season in Lawrence. Now it is time for the Huskers to return the favor. Will the Huskers put an exclamation mark on the start of Big 12 conference play?:rofl8yi: Or will they struggle with the young Jayhawks? :wink0st: We're breaking down the game like no one else and answering the important questions: Will Cody Glenn play on Saturday? :dull8ay: Will Kurt Mann miss his fourth game in a row?:sad9cd:

    Kurt mann is very iffy for the Iowa state gamne also having mono and trying to recover.Barney "Feifer" Byford plays center now for Red. He really was the player of the game against USC although no one who watched the game were impressed. Like giving him the Employee of the Month parking spot.

    What is this for? I'm not sure this is relevant - did you mean to post this on a Husker board?

    We play NE soon and these are their Red concerns. Kurt Mann is their big time center and he is out. Their recruiting is only at nine, etc. No, this is in keeping with watching what our main opponent is up to. Red fans are still upset about the Play Not to Lose Big Game at USC, Looks like Kenny Wilson is close to Marlon Lucky as the running back starter. They should be prime for an upset in Ames.

    We play UNI first. I think we will beat UNI but we can't look past them to NE. This would be a good thread to have next week, mixed in with the fire mac threads that will surely be present.

    If we do not beat UNI, it won't matter against Nebraska. We will not have enough wins to make Shreveport. The season is ticking and we must play better. The must have games start next week. Missouri is another one.

    ah, but that is the beauty of being the fan, versus being a player...we can look ahead.

    i say "look ahead" as opposed to "overlook" with regards to UNI.

    Byford has done a helluva job filling in for Mann at Center. USC is in the rear view mirror and I have no problem what so ever with the offensive gameplan the Huskers took to L.A, which was ball control, eat up clock, keep USC's offense off the field and have a chance to win in the 4th quarter.

    Where do you come up with that the Huskers are primed for an upset? If anything, the Huskers will be licking their chops after reviewing film of ISU's crappy pass defense.

    Did you not see Marlon's stats from the Troy game? 15 rushes, 156 yards, 3 TD's, if anything, Marlon is establishing himself as the #1 back with Kenny Wilson the #2 back, however, though, difference between the 2 of them is hardly noticeable.

    Simple. Iowa State will need to win the game more and meet the season's biggest challenge. The band and student body and North wind will pull out all stops. Byford, being new, is still not where Kurt Mann was at in running the o line show.

    Keep dreaming. I cann't to ask the question "so do you guys still think there's no difference in talent between Nebraska & Iowa State"? after we hang 50 points & 600 yards of total offense on your sorry defense.

    garn91-can we take that as your (misguided) prediction for the game?

    Why is it misguided? Or cann't you accept that Iowa State ranks near the bottom of every major Big 12 defensive statistical category and Nebraska is at or near the top in every major offensive statistical category?

    Each team has played 4 games and the numbers don't lie about each team's performance.

    600 yards offense by Nebraska in Ames? That will never happen. We are not the Buckaroos from Moundview State. That was awhile back when Tommie Frazier was in college.

    Garn91-That post was just meant to be a good-natured jibe. Sorry if it irritated you. I personally think 600 yds and 50 pts for Nebraska is a little excessive.

    Does Toledo racking up 43 points and 400 plus yards (358 in regulation) ring a bell?

    What if anything has your defense done in 4 games that has shown they are capable of stoping an offense with the firepower of Nebraska?

    There's no need to get belligerent. You look like a Squawkeye fan, posting garbage like this.

    You have to know that ISU is going to get beat by Nebraska when Zac Taylor is putting up better numbers that Bret Meyer. Taylor is not half the athlete Meyer is, but there system puts enough points on the board and the defense has some athletes. My early guess is Nebraska 28, ISU 13.

    Hey, we're waiting till the Nebraska game to strut our stuff.
    50 points? For whom? This is not a basketball game. We are not expecting the blowout you make us believe. We are not the Scouts from San Wapeloo High.

    garn, This board has remained relatively smack-free with the exception of YOU. I'm not going to ban you or edit your posts, but honestly, you're treading on thin ice here. How about this, I'll bet you any amount of money you wish that Nebraska will not score 50 and put up 600 yards of offense. Because that is absolutely ridiculous and utterly idiotic.

    That is stupid smack talk, and this board has been better off bereft of that crap. Take it somewhere else if you want to engage in that.
