Nebraska "Weak"?


By huskermaniac28

This is a small part of a preseason ranking of Virginia Tech from Walterfootball.com, who rates the hokies 16th:

"2009 Virginia Tech Hokies Schedule and Intangibles:
We have to give VT a lot of credit. Despite playing in a very weak conference, this athletic department has the cojones to schedule Alabama for their season debut as Clemson did last year, and we saw how it really hurt Clemson's season. Make no mistake about it, Tech doesn't stand a chance against the Crimson Tide. They simply don't have the passing game to move the chains and their rushing game will be smothered.

The rest of the out of conference schedule is comprised of Marshall, a weak Nebraska team (not VT's fault), and East Carolina. With so much parity in the ACC, Virginia Tech stands a great chance to repeat."

I know a lot of respected sites that rank Nebraska lower than the top 25 (as low as 34th on SI.com) but this is just ridiculous. How can anybody call a team as resilient as this "weak"? Obviously Nebraska still needs to prove themselves, and they will. And I think Nebraska will prove this guy wrong.

i absolutely agree aaron. i have no doubt we would have been 10-3 last year had that ridiculous call not been ruled. pelini only made it worse tho, so im glad to see hes maturing. i love his passion and fire but he needs to understand that you can react that way as a head coach. a coordinator could maybe get away with it but not a HC.

Demm sound like fight'in words...!!! I'd love to see VT beat Alabama - and I think they can, and then see us take VT out behind the woodshed and shove a can a whoop-a$$ down their throats. Big Suh can make Tyrod his bit%$. Right about then my head will explode! GO BIG RED!!!

Here's to Huskers proving this stooge wrong. I don't particularily see how he can call us weak. Last years game most likely would've been won by us had it not been for the call on Suh and the eruption from Bo that ensued as a result.

Go Big Red!
