Since 2003, 9 teams have had an AdjO at 124.0 or above. Out of these 9 teams 6 (UNC '05, GTown and Fla '07, UNC and KU '08 and UNC '09) made the Final Four. The three that did not were Wake Forest in '05 with the 72nd ranked AdjD (95.0), OSU in '11 with the 5th AdjD (88.4) and Missouri last year with the 115th AdjD (98.4).

Not that history should be a predictor, but this limited history would seem to show that if you have a top AdjO over the last 10 years you have a good chance to make the FF unless your Defense is a trainwreck.

If you were to simply base off of rankings of AdjO, over the last 10 years the #1 and/or #2 AdjO has made the FF 11 out of 20 times no matter their AdjD ranking.

10/31/2011 - 12:33pm Nebraska game day experience

As someone who has probably been to about 50 Nebraska football games, Rational's experience is very typical for a Husker football game. I have been at multiple games where the fans have given a standing ovation to the away team. (Usually a non-conference game where the away team gave Nebraska everything it could handle.) Overall, the fans act as advertised. Over the years I have seen very little taunting by Nebraska fans. Just like anywhere you will find a percentage of fans who think their team is the best in the world, a percentage that always think the sky is falling, a group of fans that are more rationaleand a small group that are asshats, but Nebraska is a great experience.
The balloons are released after the first Nebraska score and they have been doing that for as long as I remember. Only drawback to the games might be that every replay is shown on the big screens and they are always sponsored by local companies. Very commercial.
