Cardale's reaction is priceless! 

Comment 27 Jul 2015

IMO, no. 

A couple things:

1. Nebraska benefited greatly from less restrictions in the 90's. There weren't as many restrictions to the number of walk ons you could have and they were able to recruit academic partial qualifiers from FL and TX. These kids were often a little rough around the edges and would not be able to play by todays academic standards.

2. Nebraska had by far the best strength and conditioning program in the country in the 90's. This was a huge draw and helped them secure recruits who may have been on the fence about committing to a school as isolated as UNL.  The rest of the country has since caught up and they no longer hold that advantage.

I believe the tradition and resources alone will keep them competitive, but I don't see them returning to the kind of former glory that Husker fans hope for.
