The Happer and Stephens Show: Sept. 18th ,1pm

First it’s Black Friday stuff, now this

Is there anything that Mike Riley can do now to win fans back? Is this the beginning of the end?

Just based off of events from this season, is Nebraska the worst team in the Big Ten West?

If so, that makes them probably the worst team among Power 5

The Happer and Stephens Show: Sept 18th, 11am

  • Holy Crap what just happened?

September 18th: What exactly can Mike Riley say today at his press conference to elicit true hope for the program going forward?

-Nebraska fans show up when the team is bad, and when the team is good. But is there a point where you are concerned to whether the fans will show up? Dan Wolken points out that Husker fans aren’t expecting the dominance of the 90s necessarily…but they at least want to compete against Wisconsin. Ouch. A harsh reality, but probably true.

-Are Husker fans miserable? Sorensen tends to agree with Wolken. The fans who are optimistic are clinging to recruiting, which is probably not smart, but the pessimistic fans—and possibly realistic ones—are seeing that there is much more the problem than that

September 18th: Shut Up Sipple

-You’re in your first year covering Husker football and still engulfing yourself into the fanbase…as a relative outsider, how the heck do you assess the first 3 weeks of the season? Is Nebraska relevant anywhere?

-The defense showed signs of coming back to life on Saturday, but the offense fell apart. Why does it seem like this team is so fragile, and has been for years now?

September 18th: USA Today’s Dan Wolken says Nebraska is the MOST miserable fanbase right now in college football…how miserable are you, Husker fans?

September 18th: Is Purdue for real? Has Jeff Brohm turned around the lowly Boilermakers in just 3 games?

-Purdue is 2-1, with a close loss to Louisville, and blowout wins vs. Ohio and Missouri. For those who say Nebraska doesn’t have talent—-that excuse is not valid. Brohm goes in 3 games and turns Purdue from a joke to a team to watch out for. And also, how about Maryland? And all with their backup QB?!?!

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:                                         And, DOLPHINS WIN! Jake has reason for happiness

September 18th: Tanner Lee leads ALL of Division 1 FBS QBs with 7 interceptions…he appears to be definitely overhyped, but how much is the o-line’s fault?

-Lee definitely appears to hold the ball too long, but isn’t helped out by a terrible offensive line, that shouldn’t be terrible. Mike Cavanaugh, your seat is on fire right now. Does he make it through the year? Or even through the week?

-Lee reminds Sorensen a lot of Christian Hackenberg in his time at Penn State. A player who likely has NFL potential, but a terrible o-line wrecks confidence and leads to overall mediocre-to-bad results for the team’s record. How can that be changed during conference season? Huskers, by the way, are a 10-point favorite vs. Rutgers on Saturday….where’s your confidence level for THAT game?
