Daily Dose of Husker Reality - I

Apparently this is needed to help stem the tide of message board posts like, "If Nebraska doesn't win 9 games next year, the season should be considered a major disappointment."

Since the year 2000, 88 college football teams have won 5 games. In the following season 44 of those teams won at least six games the following the year. 34 of those teams won four or fewer games the following season and 10 won five games again the next year.

Just 13 of those 88 teams (14.8%)coming off of five-win seasons between 2000 and 2007 won nine or more games the following season. Additonally, only two of those teams (Colorado 2001, Texas A&M 2006) were from the Big 12 conference.

Think big or think rationally? You decide.
