Mark McMurphy of ESPN tweets that Nebraska is at 35-1 to win the national title next year.
His full tweet: "Other odds to win next year's BCS: UGA, Mich, Texas, Stan, SCar 30-1, Neb 35-1, UCLA, USC 40-1"
What say you? Those odds about right?
"So you're saying there's a chance?"

are those are vegas odds? i'd like to see true odds. i bet that would be around 60 to 1.
“Patience, n. A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.”
I'd say its about right could be better though with our schedule next year
NEBRASKA FOOTBALL= Great Players, Great Coaches, AMAZING PEOPLE
Maybe relatively our position is about right, but the the odds are way off -- there's no value in that bet. I was extremely generous in my quick runthrough and even then I'm getting 105-1. I wouldn't be a bettor, realistically, until about 125-1.
It's nothing against Nebraska...bookies skew these futures because they can. People get suckered in by the possibility of a big payday + emotional ties to their teams..
EDIT: On second thought, I wrote off the possibility of getting to the NC without running the table. It's unlikely, but you can't ignore it. I'd say odds are probably more like 85-1 and I'm a bettor at 100-1.

All the odds I have seen had Nebraska anywhere between a 30 to 40-1 bet to win the NC. I would have thought somewhere around 75-1. They just have done nothing to earn the benefit of the doubt.
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
But then there is that whole conference championship thing. sore subject that last 4 years. you know how it is...next year is the year right!!!
