I believe, at least for the next month or so, our Huskers are going to pull an upset. My reasoning behind this is that teams that hustle win games they shouldn't. Though we are off to a bad start in the B1G, I think there are two or three games that are timed perfectly for upsets. I also believe that NU is a team that coaches worry about and players overlook. So, if we can catch some teams looking ahead, I think we pull off some upsets. Here are what I believe to be the best chances for upsets.
January 22nd at home against Illinois. Illinois will be on the verge of starting a 5 game run against ranked teams, the first team being Michigan.
February 2nd at home against tOSU. This is probably a long shot. However, they will be playing their enemy Michigan after they play us, and they have already beat us once. I could see them taking a peek ahead.
February 16th at home against Michigan State. They will be coming off just playing Michigan and getting ready to take on 4 currently ranked opponents.
If we can avoid injury and not getting too tired, I think these games will be worth the price of admission. I will not miss the Illinois game because I think that might be the most winnable of the three.
Tim Miles has me excited about our future. I just hope he stays here for many years to come.
