Post Nebraska Football
Here is my 2011 prediction for the Huskers first year in the Big 10

09/03 CHATTANOOGA - W
09/10 FRESNO STATE - W
09/17 WASHINGTON - W (statement game for last loss in the Holiday Bowl)
09/24 @ WYOMING - W
10/01 @ WISCONSIN - L
10/08 OHIO STATE - W
10/22 @ MINNESOTA - W
10/29 MICH. STATE - (toss-up)
11/05 NORTHWESTERN - W
11/12 @ PENN STATE - (toss-up)
11/19 @ MICHIGAN - W
11/25 IOWA - W
12/03 BIG TEN CHAMP - (Should be in it against Wisconsin)

My prediction is a 8-3 season (8-4 after Big 10 Champ game)
If BIG RED wins the toss-up games and finishes 10-1......they might be headed to the Rose Bowl

Nebraska should be a good fit for the blue collar Big 10.

Post Reports that Nebraska is cheating
Another week, another huge cheating scandal in college football.

Here's an article on Nebraska violating NCAA Bull Shit Rules

This time it's the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Set to begin play in the Big Ten, it seems they decided they had to cheat to keep up with the likes of Ohio State.

So what did they do? Buy cars for their players? No. Have tutors write papers and take tests? Nope. Give their players lucrative, no-show jobs? Wrong again.

Here's what the Cornhuskers did, by their own admission: "Starting last November, NU found that a total of 238 student-athletes over a four-year span were allowed to use scholarship money to purchase 'recommended' textbooks when only 'required' are covered."

I'll give you a minute to pull yourself up off the floor. Ready? OK, if you'll recall, before you passed out from shock and horror, you learned that Nebraska had allowed its athletes to use scholarship money to buy class textbooks that were "recommended" by their professors. That's an NCAA violation! SCANDALOUS!

Nebraska has placed itself on a two-year probation and imposed a fine of $28,000 on its athletic department. Now its fate rests in the hands of the NCAA. "Whether they feel we have done enough, we don't know," said athletic director Tom Osborne.

Ha! Good try, Tom. But there's nothing you can do to take back the in-depth education many of those 238 athletes received via access to additional educational texts. The deed is done, sir. Pandora's box has been opened and what came out is smart people. I don't know how you sleep at night.

But what's truly troubling is not just the education Nebraska gave its student-athletes -- although that is very upsetting indeed -- but the repercussions that Nebraska's actions could have throughout big-time college sports.

Before the Nebraska story broke, all previous scandals were to benefit the "athlete" part of "student-athlete." What if other programs went the Nebraska route and started cheating in order to produce better students? I don't think we'd like what we see.

I would say 4 losses, possibly just 3. That young quarterback will suffer some growing pains.

To be truthful...........I hope he (Martinez) doesn't make it all season. The back-up Biron Carnes is a better leader, passer, not as fragile and almost as fast as T-Magic. Carnes would lead the team way better in my opinion.

4 losses is not out of the question, I'm just being hopeful on a good season. Big Red has the defense but a BIG (?) on offense.

Well......If I was the BIG 10.....I wouldn't want the new guys to win anything either. Can't say I blame them.

On the other hand, in three years, Nebraska will have a pud schedule throughout the Big 10.
