» Wide receiver Omar Manning and running back Jaquez Yant are a "problem" for Nebraska's defense this spring, defensive backs coach Travis Fisher said.

We did at least win our division and made a few conference championships back then. I figured we were at least semi respectable over 10 years ago.
Yes 20 years ago it was 2001. We were semi-respectable. But all that changed on November 23, 2001 when we got boat raced by Colorado, took the back door into the BCS title game and got stomped by “The Soldier” and the ‘Canes.

Sorry to piss in your Cheerios. We did have some nice seasons after that, that 2009 season was solid and if we would have had even a pulse on offense we may have made a title run that year, but geez that offense was horrid. That was a star studded defense and they literally carried us through 2009.

Yeah. But will they be a problem for OU and the Big 10? Or even Buffalo for that matter.
OU is going to be a problem for offense and defense. but every other game will be an opportunity. NEB will field more players with more recruiting stars than most of their opponents all year. They will be the more talented team in most games. can they execute?

I sure wish Stars translated into wins. It might for some teams but Not for this team so far.

I also am a fan of the Nebraska Cornhusker college football team.

Getting the 4 star players is good, but very very few come to campus all-American. Development takes more than a spring and fall camp with the vast majority of players no matter how many stars they have. Reloading only happens once players are developed and playing, giving younger players the chance to develop before being called on. We are getting to that point, fairly close anyway and will see that this year. Go Huskers!
