June 19th: Did Britney Spears’ boyfriend lie about being a Husker?

June 19th: North Carolina coach has an interesting take on CTE

June 19th: More on the hiring of Ron Brown

June 19th: The British Open starts today in golf, and Jake is sick of people bashing it as the worst major

-Sorensen actually thinks it might be the BEST major; The Master’s is almost always viewed as the best, but it’s at the same place every year. The Open moves around and challenges you in different ways. Plus, it’s in the region that golf was born in, and is on really early in the morning. What’s not to like?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

June 19th: Bill Bender (The Sporting News)

-You picked Nebraska to finish 3rd in the B1G West this year, despite coming off of a 4-8 record last year and facing one of the toughest schedules in the entire nation…why so optimistic?

-What did you learn from SEC Media Days? How close is the B1G to taking over that conference, if at all?

June 19th: Ron Brown is back at Nebraska, now as director of player development…are you all ‘on board’ or have reservations because of things he has said in the past?

-Brown comes with a great track record of success as a coach for various positions with Nebraska in the past, and that is certainly welcomed back by fans—his comments about the LGBT community in 2012, however, have concerned some

-Isn’t he worth it with his past coaching success here to bring him back? Is there any way this would backfire? Feels like the first major possible controversial hire for Frost, and hardly controversial at that

July 18th: 79-year-old Bill Snyder says he hopes he can coach his 6-year-old grandson in college….he really is going to die on the sidelines, isn’t he?

-It was a joke at first with Snyder, but now it really feels like it. Can he ever be forced out there if the team starts going .500 or worse consistently? What if he somehow made it to 90 years old and coached still? Greatest accomplishment in the history of coaching?

July 18th: College Football is better when _____________________ is in the national championship hunt?

-You might be sick of Alabama and their dominance, but as a blue blood school, it just means more when they are at the top…right?

-Nebraska is right there with them. And Michigan probably….what other schools?

July 18th: Sean Callahan (Husker Online) / Shut Up Sipple

-What do you read into the Las Vegas SuperBook putting Nebraska as 20/1 odds to make the College Football Playoff this year?

-What are you hoping to learn most from B1G Media Days next Monday and Tuesday?

-Any concerns about Nebraska’s tight end depth after losing 2 players last week?

July 18th: Randy Gregory reinstated by NFL and can return to Cowboys immediately…do you have any faith in him to stay clean this time?

The NFL granted Gregory conditional reinstatement on Tuesday, meaning if he messes up one more time, he’s gone for good. Do you have any faith in Randy to stay clean and provide an impact?

July 18th: Could Nebraska pull off the upset against Michigan?

  • 247 Sports writer picks the Nebraska at Michigan game to be a potential upset in September.

July 18th: Are expectations for this season going to rise as Fall camp gets going or can we stay level-headed this year?

-Next week is B1G Media Days, and the last few weeks have been full of more optimist for Nebraska, with a 3rd place finish in the B1G West predicted, 20/1 odds apparently of making the College Football Playoff, and more…what has the recent hype been coming from?

-It feels like we’re going to be expecting Nebraska to knock off Wisconsin for the B1G West crown by the time Fall camp concludes…Sip mentioned a few weeks ago the importance of slowing down the hype train, but how do you stop a train that is full speed ahead?
