First, I need to come up with a common name for this dadgummed article so you realize it’s a regular feature AND so it’s easier for me to search past results to show this to you.

This week I asked two questions of Nebraska fans, right after our beloved Huskers’ final loss of the 2023 football season.

Is Nebraska’s football program moving in the right direction under Matt Rhule?

  • yes
  • no

Is the 2023 Nebraska football season, Matt Rhule’s first year, a success or failure?

  • success
  • failure

Here are the results of those two questions:

That is pretty impressive. It’s dropped just slightly from the last time I asked this question. I did that because I wanted to find out where Husker fans stood. Sometimes it’s hard to get through the negativity on social media.

More below.

A pretty decent majority of Nebraska fans think the season is a success, even though our beloved Huskers didn’t make a bowl game.


I asked the question - “Is Nebraska’s football program moving in the right direction under Matt Rhule?” - a few times this season.

I asked during the week of September 15th, and I received the following result - note that this was when Nebraska was 0-2 against Minnesota and Colorado.

I asked again in mid-November, and this is the result I got.

Again, pretty surprising. When was the last time 91% of any group was all together on an issue? Note that it dropped only slightly after the loss to Iowa.
