Is Nebraska for real?
It’s a question a lot of fans across college football have about the No. 10 Huskers, who are 5-0. It’s also a question asked on College Gameday on Saturday morning.
Kirk Herbstreit agreed he thought Nebraska has looked “great” this season. But not everyone was in agreement.
“I don’t know if they’re a top 10 team right now,” Desmond Howard said. “I think I could come up with 10 teams that are better than Nebraska right now.”
Husker players did not take kindly to being doubted by analysts in front of a national audience.
“I’m tired of waking up every Saturday hearing the same people say the same thing. They expect us to fail,” Michael Rose-Ivey wrote in an Instagram post.
WE ARE SOME DAMN DOGS !!!! remember that.. don't forever forget that.. know that. I'm tired of waking up every Saturday hearing the same people, say the same thing.. they expect us to fail.. they want us to fall.. it's a #Blackshirt mentality.. #itsonlyoneway !! Lessssss get it ! ☠️#staydowntillyoucomeup #ShirtSZN
Kieron Williams was also not a fan of the segment.
They just laughed at us on national tv…

You can watch the discussion here. Nebraska faces Indiana on the road today and Purdue next week. Then the Huskers have back-to-back road games at Wisconsin and Ohio State.
