October 11th: Could Ohio State’s offense cause Nebraska even more problems than Wisconsin’s

-It definitely has more speed and talent….let’s hear from Bob Diaco on the topic

-Also, Chris Jones spoke to the media on Tuesday and was very encouraging

October 11th: Sean Callahan (Husker Online) / Shut Up Sipple

Any reasons for real confidence this weekend against Ohio State? Is it possible this is Riley’s one big upset of the year?

-Is it possible to be encouraged about a team in a 21-point loss at home?

October 11th: Are you OK with your leaders on the team being upbeat and ‘encouraged’ right now, instead of being pissed off?

-We mentioned in the opening segment that it’s hard being on the hot seat, but Nebraska coaches and players this week have been very upbeat and positive, despite a 21-point loss to Wisconsin and a tough game ahead at home where they’re a 24-point underdog

-Do you want to see more fire and a pissed off team? What does it say about the staff/players when they don’t seem terribly bothered about what happened last week and what’s coming ahead?

October 11: Oh, no! The U.S. Men’s Soccer team won’t be playing in the 2018 World Cup….what a BUMMER..or is it?

-The U.S. lost last night, 2-1, to Trinidad and Tobago, and paired with wins for Honduras and Panama, was knocked out of making the World Cup for the first time since 1986. Just proves that soccer is lame, says Sorensen

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY

October 11: Donte Williams and Keith Williams are good recruiters, but is Nebraska getting enough out of them as coaches?

-Both have ties to big-time players and have gotten some to Nebraska, but are they living up to expectations as coaches?

-At WR, seeing lots of drops and struggles for separation. With CBs, seeing poor tackling, albeit with young players and (before last week) without Chris Jones

October 11: Do people understand how hard it is when a coach is on the hot seat?

-Text messages from Gary Andersen to John Canzano—the Oregonian journalist—showed a good amount of stress from Andersen, and he obviously stepped down on Monday from the position

-It’s recruiting, press conferences, keeping the team’s confidence, and more. Very hard to move forward for the now and future with so much in doubt. Is it possible for Riley and staff?
