July 7th: You get to choose to go to only one road game this year: Are you going to Penn State or Oregon?

-The road schedule otherwise is not that daunting, and those are the 2 obvious good road games. What game would you go to if you could only choose one? Oregon in September, Penn State in late November

July 7th: Tom Oates (Wisconsin State Journal) / Shut Up Sipple

-Why do you think Wisconsin went after a player from Nebraska in Bryson Williams that Nebraska apparently didn’t want?

-What reservations do you have about the Badgers this year that might prevent them from winning the West?

-Can the young talent in Milwaukee be enough to recruit free agents to play for the Bucks? Appears not so far…

July 7th: Through 2 full seasons at Nebraska, has Mike Riley been….underappreciated?

-Yes, his record isn’t that impressive—-6-7 and 9-4 are nothing to brag about at Nebraska. But, as he turned 64 years old yesterday, he’s brought a calmer sense to the team and the media, and is welcoming

-Bo Pelini did well in getting 9 wins a year, and it definitely felt many times that he was also underappreciated for what he did at Nebraska. Is Riley in the same boat? Recruiting is doing better, but Husker fans care most about Ws and Ls, and it’s not improved.

July 7th: Bill Bender (Sporting News)

-Coach rankings are out! Bill has Mike Riley at 43rd, behind Rich Rodriguez and ahead of Dana Holgorsen

-Scott Frost at #72….how high can he climb in rankings this year? And why #85 for Lane Kiffin? So low!

-Who do you see making the biggest leap this year in rankings and potentially the biggest fall?

July 7th: Nebraska ranks 27th in Power 5 in overall athletic program success…are they trending up or down?

-Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde says they are trending downwards, as they’ve dropped in the rankings the past 2 years…non-revenue sports have helped the rankings out a lot

-Kansas came in ranked in the mid-50s out of 65 teams…but they always have success in basketball…if you could have Kansas’ consistent success in basketball for Husker football and sacrifice almost every other sport, would you take that?
