CollegeFootballNews.com, a popular football site, posted their 2015 Big Ten preview on Thursday afternoon and listed multiple Nebraska Cornhuskers in their preview.
Junior defensive tackle Maliek Collins made the "Five Big-Time Players Who Deserve A Bigger Spotlight" list. In addition, junior running back Terrell Newby made the "Biggest Shoes To Fill" list. Is that the truth?
The more interesting post by the football site was regarding Mike Riley. The listed included Riley on the hot seat. Seems extremely early, considering Riley hasn't even coached a game in Lincoln. Big Red Report doesn't agree, but go on....
- "Mike Riley, Nebraska – Tim Beckman is on the hottest seat in terms of possibly losing his gig, and Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst has the pressure of win-West-or-bust expectations, but the spotlight is all on Riley. Bo Pelini’s teams might have folded in big moments, and not being in the national title chase isn’t okay in Lincoln, but winning nine games or more in all seven seasons at the helm was still a decent run. Of course, it’s Nebraska. Tom Osborne won nine games or more in all 25 of his seasons and 11 or more in each of his last five. Good luck, Mike."
Fiutak predicts the Huskers will finish 10-2 this season, losing to Wisconsin and Michigan State at home.
