Kirk Herbstreit has made a lot of picks and predictions in his broadcasting career. Needless to say, the one he made in the B1G West for 2022 did not pan out.

That’s putting things mildly with Herbstreit picking Nebraska to win the West and post a turnaround season under Scott Frost. Frost is now out with the program firing him on Sunday after a 1-2 start to the season and a loss to Georgia Southern.

Asked about his pick on social media, Herbstreit admitted he was wrong and even apologized on Monday.

To be fair, the assessment of Frost producing a turnaround this season was a big whiff. As for Nebraska’s odds in the B1G West, they’re not great but the Huskers technically still have a shot.

The issues in the West are plentiful with Wisconsin losing to Washington State at home, Iowa’s offense being a nightmare (and non-existent), Northwestern losing a winnable game against Duke and Purdue losing an early conference game to Penn State. We’ll see if Mickey Joseph can turn things around as the interim head coach for the Huskers and keep the team competitive in the division down the stretch.
