@PTHUSKER: I wonder if he'll have the luxury of redshirting. Not much depth there.
@rickylee41: I'll let you know when you should be worried.
@RocketHusker: The offensive line was lousy in the bowl game. That group cost the team dearly. No reason to sugarcoat the situation. Tennessee's defense was awful, despite what many in the Nebraska media try to sell you, for whatever reason. The fact Nebraska managed only 61 yards rushing was an abomination against a defense that allowed 400-plus rushing yards to both Kentucky and Missouri.
@Czechdays: I don't know what you mean. Are you asking me to rank those scenarios based on likelihood?
@Moose: I understand that Pagano is more of a 4-3 guy. More than 30 teams have contacted him. If he says he plans to visit Lincoln, then I'll get more serious about it.
@Colby: I think you'll see DPE continue to play "Z" receiver.
@OldGuy: Raising prices would have been a dangerous move.
@Steve: I think Miles is now recruiting to a level where Nebraska should be in the NIT or NCAA Tournament four out of every six years. I think that is eminently reasonable.
@TO: I count six starters back on offense (if you include McNitt at fullback) and six on defense. I think Wisconsin will be the overwhelming choice of the media to finish atop the Big Ten West standings.
@Steve: At this point, I think it would be a gross injustice to move in a different direction. I think Shawn Eichorst is smart and fair-minded enough to stand pat. I also think he sees the attendance at PBA, which is a strong indicator of support for the head coach. But go with your gut on this one: Tell me that firing Miles would be a fair-minded act. Bottom line, it would be unfair.
@Derek: Thanks for the heads up. I need to look into that.
@MrPresident: I'm just not going to give the knee-jerk vote of confidence to that crew. I think, based on the last 2 1/2 games last season, the offensive line should be in prove-it mode from the get-to this spring.
@jieder: I'm glad you mentioned Anton Gill. I still think he can become an excellent scorer (10 points a game), especially if Miles continues to let the team push the pace. You're right, though, Nebraska is thin at point guard. Keep an eye on a guard at North Carolina State, who is departing in the wake of the head coach's firing. I don't have his name off the top of my head.
