39 days, 3 hours

Ahhhhh....August is nearly upon us, which means that Nebraska Football is nearly upon us! I would like to remind everyone that last year I correctly predicted our season record before the season started...I'd have to look, but I think I might have even gotten every game prediction right...basically, I rule.

This year will be an interesting year to watch since the defence should be noticeably better than last year, as should most positions...the real question is at QB...we don't even have a declared starter yet...presumeably it'll be Zac Lee. Hopefully he'll do well...he's been around for a while and in the Red/White game he looked good, for whatever that's worth. If he can do well, I see us having a really good year...if he can do an adequate job, I think we'll still do pretty well...

I could see us going 10-2 this year with losses against Oklahoma and either VT, Missou or Kansas. I'd love it if we "upset" VT...I think they're overrated this year (as they're the preseason pick to win the ACC), but I'd rather lose to them and do really well in the Big XII. I think we have a really good chance to win the Big XII North, but that all depends on how well the QB does...but either way, we've got a pretty favorable schedule this year and could feasibly go 9-3 or 10-2...so I'll be the optimist and say 10-2.

We're still deciding how many of the PPV games we'll get this year...we got all 3 last year, and it was a lot of fun to have people over to the house to watch football...I assume we'll definately get the game against perennial powerhouse Louisiana LaFayette since that'll be Nebraska's 300th consecutive sell out...unless we magically acquire tickets to that game.

Ahhhh, hooray for football season!
