Sunday Morning QB has a ridiculously early look at the 2007 Husker football squad. (HT: Double Extra Point, from the Local Yokels blogroll). Can't say I disagree much with the prognostications.
The schedule should be brutal, with 3 conference champs (USC, Wake and Nevada) in the non-conference schedule and then there is that always fun trip to Austin. Beating Mizzou in Columbia will be no small task either. The other road trips are to KU and CU and their always so polite fans will sure to be quite accomodating as well.
I'll go out on a limb and say 9-3 right now, and it could well be worse. However, former Husker RB Roger Craig seems to think this is the breakthrough year and that NU will wind up with a top 10 ranking. I hope he's right, but am not sold quite yet.
