The results of this week’s SBN Reacts Survey are in!

First of all, please do this and sign up!

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Nebraska Cornhuskers fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.

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

Answer: yes or no

I am pleasantly shocked by this answer.

It tells us one of two things: Either we misread completely the Nebraska fan base because of all the negativity we perceive OR a huge majority of the Nebraska fanbase is NOT on social media, where that negativity is cultured like bacteria.

Question: What group/area do you feel is most improved on the 2023 Nebraska football team?


  • Running Backs
  • Offensive line
  • Pass Rush
  • Rush Defense
  • Overall Defense
  • Special Teams
  • Nothing - the only thing that matters is wins

I’m not sure this sentence and answer structure is the best, but again, I am surprised at how low the “Nothing” answer is in the survey results.

Question: Has Colorado’s Instant Success Changed the way you view how long it takes to turn around a football program?


  • Colorado’s success is short term and should be ignored
  • Colorado’s success shows you can turn around a program in a year

Question: Can Nebraska still make a bowl game?

Answers: yes or no

Should I keep asking this question as the season goes on (to a point)?

And then two survey result questions I am adding here because I think they’re hilarious:

And boy how Texas is screwed now:
