COMMENTARY

Shatel

Nebraska has been the same team all season, rising to the Top 10 by playing above its mistakes and finding ways to win in the fourth quarter.”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald

Carmin

The Boilermakers showed they’re capable of responding at the highest level.”

Mike Carmin
Lafayette Journal & Courier

Hamar

Many will say we still don’t know how good Nebraska is – or isn’t. That’s OK. We’ll find out a lot soon.”

Bob Hamar*
Grand Island Independent

Callahan

You really wonder how healthy Gates was. He could hardly move and at times he completely got beat.”

Sean Callahan

Stryker

It’s pretty obvious that quality o-line depth is at least a season away.”

Tad Stryker

Chatelain

If you turned on the TV unaware that the Huskers were unbeaten, you never would’ve believed it”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Sipple

Nebraska’s run game, in its current flimsy state, won’t exactly intimidate Wisconsin.

Steven M. Sipple*

Vogel

Being one-dimensional is the one thing a defense like Wisconsin’s wants most.”

Brandon Vogel
Hail Varsity

Heady

Is this team really ready for two straight Top 10 road games at Wisconsin and at Ohio State?”

Chris Heady
Land of 10

Keeler

Pollsters want pretty. When discussion inevitably turn to the Huskers, they’re probably going to hold their noses. And push the Huskers up the rankings anyway.”
