I think the opening line is projected approx NU -6.5? If that holds true I'll be betting BYU. I hate to say it, but I think we struggle against them.This game really intrigues me. Nebraska should be favored, but primarily because it's a home game. If the D isn't used to the new game plan/has some carry over from the previous coaching schemes and bad habits, this could be a nightmare. Add in the fact that Ameer is no longer there to carry the team when things stumble, this is a dangerous game. That said, if the offense picks things up quickly I expect a high scoring affair that Nebraska escapes with a win. If BYU comes out with a win, this season could be a frustrating one, but even then, I believe the team Nebraska fields by the end of the year will be markedly improved over the one that is fielded in week 1.
Seems obvious, but I've seen several Nebraska teams get worse as the season went on, because I don't think the previous coaching staff developed the team throughout the season, and I think their schemes were easier for opposing coaching staffs to gameplan around, leaving Nebraska looking pedestrian late in the season.
I can remember Matt Herman was just never the same. Can anyone can think of a complete rerecovEry?[/QUOTE][QU?OTE="WestCoastCornhusker, post: 448956, member: 7628"]I still have my doubts whether Hill is anywhere near 100%. How many former players fully recovered from broken legs and torn ligaments?
