Happer & Stephens: January 15th, 11am

January 15th: Will Scott Frost have immediate respect from opposing B1G coaches with all of his accolades this year or does he have to earn their respect this year?

  • The B1G has a lot of great coaches, and many had a lot of fanfare when they came into the conference…but Scott Frost just came off a clean sweep of all the Coach of the Year awards in college football and the only undefeated season in FBS this year
  • Will Frost intimidate opponents in year 1 or not? Can he make Memorial Stadium an intimidating place again?

January 15th: Could Nebrasketball make their 1-3-1 zone a permanent fixture going forward? /Shut Up Sipple

  • The 1-3-1 has been very effective in comeback bids last year and this year, and has proven to be tough to score against…could Nebraska be like Syracuse and implement a zone for the whole game?
  • What needs to happen for the Huskers to get on a roll in conference play and get to the tourney?

January 15th: Kevin Sumlin hired as head coach at Arizona…why didn’t Arizona State hire him when they could?

  • Everyone thought that Sumlin would end up at Arizona State when they fired Todd Graham, but they made the baffling hire of Herm Edwards instead…while Arizona waited a long time to fire Rich Rodriguez, and ends up with a dang good option with Kevin Sumlin this late in the process
  • Will Sumlin be successful in the desert?

January 15th: The epic recruiting weekend is complete, but the big news is Nebraska lands a transfer DB/LB from Ole Miss

  • Breon Dixon, who played 6 games last year as a freshman, announced Sunday he is transferring to Nebraska. At 6′, 220 pounds, he played DB last year, but Nebraska might play him at outside linebacker
  • What do we expect in terms of commitments after the weekend? It was definitely cold out, but it didn’t appear that any of the recruits who came complained on social media…
  • ALSO—R.I.P Keith Jackson…favorite memory of him as a broadcaster?

January 15th: Nebrasketball falls in OT to Penn State and plays tonight against Illinois

  • The Huskers overcame a 16-point deficit in the 2nd half to force OT at Penn State, but couldn’t close as they fell to 12-7 overall and 3-3 in B1G play…positive takeaways at all or just a bad loss?
  • Also, it still appears that Jordy Tshimanga is not coming back to the Huskers…was his absence a cause of lack of focus or good play against Penn State or was that a false narrative? And you can’t lose to lowly Illinois tonight, can you?
