    Nebraska is a hard team to get a read on.

    They really havent played particularly well all around in any of their games (except maybe NIU)

    Offense put up big yards against a bad Illinois team, but also almost lost the game on account of being a turnover machine.

    They have talent in certain spots but overall nowhere near what Ohio State has.

    Id expect them to come out fired up and play inspired at home, but in the end this should still end up a multiple score win for the good guys.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    This is exactly where I am. They are an extremely difficult read. I think that they have the kind of talent, combined with a home night game to make it far more interesting than I think we care to have them make it... but... they also have the ability to put the ball on the ground a lot and seemingly play down.

    They are all over the place. But I do expect them to show up on Saturday night.

    We actually played really poorly against NIU. And we were so amped up against Illinois that we made quite a few errors. If we're all jacked up like that again, we'll get boatraced.

    Was supposed to be at the game in Lincoln, but unfortunately will be watching it from a hospital bed. I've been trying to convince my wife she needs to bring our big screen to the hospital but so far she's not buying it.
    Looking for the Bucks to cover again, something like 42-17.

    I can see a boatracing because of, well...
    We rank last in fumbles lost, right behind the team that got plungered up in Madison last Saturday.
    We rank third from last in total turnovers lost, right ahead of New Mexico State and Hawaii.
    We're 111th in penalty yardage (263), tied for 80th in penalties per game, tied for 94th in total penalties.

    Thanks. The surgeon is taking out a foot or so of my colon Friday morning. He says its to keep me from getting cancer. I'm pretty sure it's because he has a house payment due, or else it may be time for his country club dues.

    That cancer sucks, man. If I could, I'd Bucky the hell outta cancer.

    See this what I think... Nebrasks needs to be calm early because one bad mistake early because you're too fired up and it could get away from you all.

    It's sometimes the small things...

    1. Turnovers
    2. Penalties
    3. Special teams

    Those things can add up to be a big problem if you aren't squared away there. I know you don't have a kicker right? Or you're using your starting safety?

    I’ll take the counter approach. I’m loving this team but still have Iowa and Purdue flashbacks. I feel better about this year’s side and Day’s ability to keep them focused and I’m glad it’s a national night game which makes it that much tougher to be complacent. However, the game’s not going to win itself. If we start believing our own hype and let it get away from us, it could be tough to get it back in that environment.

    Drubuck What time is it?

    Purdue and Iowa always in my mind for this type of game. I'm cocky going in it and think Buckeyes win comfortably BUT those games too fresh in my mind

    I’m reminded of the Purdue game with Pryor at QB, as well. It’s a bit of a cliche, but true: we get everyone’s best, at least out of the gate. We don’t have the luxury of waiting out the storm. Our competition isn’t the B1G but they’ll beat us if we take them lightly. We need to come out hard and put the conference teams away. Our competition is south of the Mason Dixon and I think this year we can be right in there with them, but if we fuck around in Lincoln, etc, we won’t get to show it.
