Bama and OSU are favored by double digits in the initial lines for all their games.  Crazy.

Oh look,  the top 5 are 5 of the 6 teams with multiple CFP appearances. The 6th is in the top 10. How exciting

Michigan is incredibly overrated at 6. Plus they have a joke of a schedule until mid October so the Walmart’s will be out in full force this fall

Michigan and ND are the most overrated teams in preseason polls. I doubt either finish in the top 10. Though one thing Michigan has going for them is stable QB play, a relatively new phenomenon for Harbaugh.

Michigan has a dynamic backfield and a ton of depth at WR.  Their bigger concern is on the other side of the ball.  Questions on the edge and secondary.  They could be an 11-win team or regress to 8-9 wins

I think the solace there for Michigan supporters is the fact that every year Harbaugh has been there, aside from the COVID year, Michigan has had a top 5, at worst top 10, defense in yards allowed.  A top 20 scoring defense every year.  Given the relative strength of their recruiting, it makes sense that they reload.

Returning almost everyone key on offense, outside of Haskins, I get why optimism is high.  I don't think they are really that overrated at all.  Maybe if last year had been another disappointing one instead of the best Michigan season in 20 years.

Their defense is like most Big 14 or 16 or whatever defenses.  Good against league teams, exposed against faster and bigger teams.  I think those numbers are inflated by the teams they play more than anything.  Even last year, they got exposed at times in the Ohio State game.  Lots of talented kids go through there, not enough dynamic athletes to compete against truly elite teams

Don’t understand why The Huskers tried an on side kick in third quarter with the lead. Wildcats got possession in good field position  and scored

It’s one of those plays that if it works, Frost is heralded for boldness (like Sean Payton in SB) and for going for the jugular. But yeah, Nebraska had all the momentum and it went buh-bye.

Not all that impressed with several of Fitzgerald’s decisions, either.

Ha ha husker nation.  Another loss in a one score games despite being 11 pt favorites.  Season over before it starts.  Long live Scott Frost.

I love it. You should’ve seen how empty my Costco was at lunch today. Might be harder to find tee times than I thought it’d be this fall.

The Husker need to give their backup QB more time , he is a dual threat quarterback who can at least throw a spiral . Their first stringer was throwing wounded ducks all game

Except Payton did it with a 13-3 team.  Frost did it coming off back to back 3 win seasons and an abysmal record in one score games.  Even if it worked I feel like it would have been needlessly risky.  Dude is flailing
