Yes, Nebraska will be somewhat of a question mark. But they played better as the season went on and that means good coaching. Plus they had a lot of linebacker injuries so that part of their D should be better. I would love to see them drop a little, but I think they have too much talent waiting in the wings for that to happen. Just look at their last 3 recruiting years.
ya we played better as the year went on in chiz year one to
Mizzou i expect to be on the decline at least for a year.
Daniel, Maclin, Coffman, and Saunders. That's pretty much 65% of the WR/TE passing game there. Around 260 of the 400 balls caught.
While KU is bringing back the full monte of skill position players, they are taking some good sized hits on defense(LB) and 3 starters on the interior Oline.
We wouldn't play him unless we happen to get in the championship game somehow, but McCoy is having 2nd thoughts too.
It will be interesting to see what KU does at linebacker. They may not stop the run as well as they did, but they could be better against the spread. The linebackers couldn't cover anybody. Everybody loses some players. Even you guys are losing the receiver that really hurt KU and the d-end we doubled all day. But I still think every team will be better or just as good next year.
Also, they lose a very versatile RB in Lucky, their top 2 receivers, and the QB who made the offense go. Not a stretch to think they won't be nearly as good on that side of the ball.
