Let me reiterate that I do think NU will be a better team overall this year. No near hiccups vs. the likes of Maine and Pitt and down right bad loss to KU. I just think that the Huskers are going to have their hands full with $C dispite the loss of Bush, Lienert, White, Justice, etc. It seems $C faces those kind of losses every year (Certainly not on that scale every year) and just reloads. I think U$C has to play a C- type game and NU has to play an A or greater game to have any shot at beating the rubbers. All of that is quite possible and who know's perhaps Arkansas will expose the rubbers in the Sept. 2 game in Fayetteville.
I just think that the husker folks that think they are going to waltz in to LA and lay the wood to $C need to take off the red colored glasses and be objective. I don't feel like the majority of the husker fans here have done that but reading some of the posts on huskerpedia and similar boards you'd think that the USC they are playing is the one in South Carolina.
I think the scores of the U$C/NU game and UGA/CU game will be quite similar and not the outcome that either B12 team wants.
