Re: Nebraska Football 2017

Trev Alberts for the next AD? Riley fired after the season? I think Alberts will be the “rumored” odds on favorite. I know one thing for sure, it won’t be Tom Osborne walking through that AD door this go around.. I think it’s possible Reilly gets fired at the end of this season.. But if NU moves ah...

When Nebraska lost to Purdue 2 years ago, I thought there was no way they could take on Michigan State. I thought they had no chance of winning. Boy, was I wrong. But, I'm typing this in 2017 and the gap between the end of 2015 optimism and the start of 2017 so far is... Well, I don't have words fo...
