A lot of guys have made the same guarantees in the past 48 or so games against 'SC. They were all wrong except for Vince Young. Andre Jones is no Vince Young and the Huskers, while deserving of respect, are no Texas 2005 team.

Yuh gotta play the game, then you can talk. Coach Tress said after the Texas game, when asked about being Number One, that the Buckeyes have only won two games. He meant that it's way too soon to be talking smack. Football is a long season. We'll see who's where in November.

1. He did not "guarantee a victory" he said after we win...In typical news media style they have twisted his words
2. What should he have said "If we win? Any athlete with any confidence expects to win and I would think that USC players expect to win as well.

That being said I will make my prediction

Nebraska 31 USC 28

GO BIG RED!!!

Trojan fans are so full of it. Pete Carroll was interested in AJ or they would not have brought him on a recruiting visit and if he hadn't committed so early to Nebraska he probably would have received a scholarship offer. I'm sure you are aware of the young secondary USC has, unless you jumped on the Trojan bandwagon just recently. Mr. Carroll did formerly offer Marlon Lucky from N. Hollywood but he decided to beat the Trojans instead of playing for them.

GO BIG RED!!!!

The last two games Nebraska has been a double digit underdogs they won the game and both of the games were on the road or in a neutral site. I know I bleed Cornhusker Red, but if we take care of the football I know the BIG RED will have a great chance to win this game. USC is much deeper than NU, but you can only play eleven at a time.

GO BIG RED!!!! See you in LA

you know what all husker fans should hang their heads in shame at the playcalling on both sides of the ball in the first half of this USC game. I myself am going to go shoot myself in the head for ever betting on them.
