Last season ended in disappointment for the Huskers.
Picked to win the Legends division and the Big Ten title, they only finished third in the division. Two of the four losses were blowouts, one was an upset on their home field, and the bowl game against South Carolina fell apart with mistakes.
Pessimism has set in, as some fans have accepted the fate of third place and already believe next year to be worse than the last.
This year will be different. Nebraska can, and I am going to go as far to say will, win the Legends Division and compete for the Big Ten title.
