And of course you all will be singing from the mountain tops, or whatever tops, they have in NE about beating U$C. It'd be a very impressive win, unfortunately I think it only going to happen in husker fans dreams. Don't forget you have a coach that is, what, 13-12 against D1 opponents. I am really not trying to be harsh, but the realistic chances of NU winning let alone staying within 10 of U$C are slim.
You do know how much USC lost this past season right? The current USC team in no way compares to the team that went to 3 NC games.
Also, the record of our coach doesn't really say much. He has been playing with option offense players in a west coast offense and a bunch of freshmen. This will be the first year that he gets to have an experienced team that is built to play his type of football. It isn't like he was just rebuilding with talent that could play in his system. He had to rebuild completely and use guys that where not at all right for what he was doing.
That being said I will still have to wait and see how improved the team is but I don't think USC is nearly as good as you are making them out to be.
