@chris_carstens: I'd guess you'll see five DBs on the field much of the game, maybe even six at times. Key guys no one will talk about but who I think will be important are Aaron Williams and maybe even Lamar Jackson if Husker coaches are willing to throw the true freshman into the fire in a game like this. The status of D-tackle Mick Stoltenberg also looms large. Can he come back that quickly from a knee scope? And if he does, can he have an impact after such a quick return. Discipline will be the word. It always is on defense, but more so against this team than most any other, because one guy botching his job can make the thing go off the tracks in a hurry.
@BigAppleHusker: Sipple wears some flashy tennis shoes actually. I like to mix it up between what some would classify as boat shoes and some pretty sweet Nikes I purchased prior to the season. It's like going to school. You need a new pair of tennis shoes before each opener.
@Stevels: Still debating. I don't know who I'm going to pick yet. 38-34 or something. But who has 38?
@Clayton: If it's a hard-fought loss, I'm pretty sure the sun will rise on Sunday and NU fans will be disappointed but transition into the idea that B1G play starts next week and their team is 0-0 in the quest to win the West. But that's why I like Rose-Ivey's attitude. NU needs to put all its chips in here. Win a game like this. Get back in the rankings. Announce to people they need to pay you some attention. I think this loyal fan base needs that shot in the arm, too. They're so hungry for it.
