August 3rd: Preseason NFL returns TONIGHT! What a time to be alive

-Sure, it’s just the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game…but it’s football! Arizona Cardinals vs. Dallas Cowboys…how much will you watch, if any at all?

August 3rd: Kevin Kugler (BTN/Westwood One) / Shut Up Sipple

-Will Nebraska fans, and should they, ever be OK with lower expectations going into a year?

-Can Nebraska ever truly catch Ohio State when all is said and done?

-What did you learn from interview with Tom Osborne in the spring? (airing on NET)

August 3rd: Do you ever wish Nebraska would slow down the preseason hype train and just let things be?

-Answer: Yes….however, in today’s day and age with Twitter/social media being everywhere all the time, sitting back and saying nothing makes you forgotten

-If Nebraska was winning the West and not the ‘sexy team,’ fans would probably be just fine with the coaching staff and players being quiet and just letting the team do their job on the field, right?

-Also, Husker practice back today…Sip saw practice on Sunday, but Jake didn’t. What’s he looking for?

August 3rd: Mike Cavanaugh will (likely) speak today after practice…do you believe in him to improve the O-line?

-The pressure is on Cav to make a talented unit gel and become much better…what will the secret to that improvement be?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

August 3rd: Nebrasketball apparently needs to prepare to not have Isaac Copeland at the beginning of the season, how do you assess Tim Miles with that information?

-Robin Washut told ‘Happer & Stephens’ that it looks unlikely that Copeland will be eligible to play until January 1st…meaning the first part of conference play

-Nebrasketball has a somewhat challenging non-conference schedule again…how will Miles navigate it without Copeland potentially?

August 3rd: How long of leash does Tanner Lee have in case things don’t go as smooth as planned at QB?

-Is there any regret of having too much hype for him based on what we saw in practices and the Spring Game? Sorensen goes back to 2 years ago at Auburn when they had a 5-star QB in Jeremiah Johnson who was talked as preseason Heisman candidate—and was replaced as starter by midseason

-Patrick O’Brien continues to look good, even in a back-up role. How long is Lee’s leash before O’Brien could be seen?
