January 18th: Is Tanner Lee really on the same level as Sam Darnold/Baker Mayfield/Josh Rosen?

-Lee went on with Jim Rome yesterday and said that those guys are unbelievable athletes, but he is ‘very, very comparable’ to them in many ways…is he delusional or correct?


January 18th: Nebrasketball hosts Michigan tonight in hoops…can the Huskers maintain their winning ways at home?

-The Wolverines aren’t afraid of anyone—they took down Michigan State by 10 points last weekend at the Breslin Center in East Lansing—and they are the only team that Tim Miles has not beaten in his time in the B1G

-How do you stop Mo Wagner? How much will Jordy play tonight? Will Glynn Watson finally get it going again? What is the key tonight to victory? 8pm tip on BTN

January 18th: Who are the toughest players for Nebraska to replace from last year’s roster for the 2018 football season?

-When you go 4-8, it seems like everyone is likely replaceable…but BTN’s Tom Dienhart lists Chris Jones, Drew Brown, Tanner Lee, Joshua Kalu, and Chris Weber as the toughest guys to replace…anyone else on that list? Nick Gates is probably in the conversation but he, too, had a very disappointing junior season

-What is Nebraska going to do in the secondary? Yes, Kalu and Jones had poor final seasons, but they were still talented guys…who steps up into their starting roles?

-Also, Spring Game moves to April 21 officially

January 11th: Sip went to the Outland Award ceremony last night…will Nebraska have a lineman ever win that award in Scott Frost’s system?

-Frost did have an all-conference left tackle at UCF who missed the bowl game against Auburn, but certainly had high accolades…does this offense present the chance for a lineman to earn big-time national recognition?


January 11th: Yesterday provided another reason why the Early Signing Period might be detrimental to college football…

-It was learned that Baylor’s Matt Rhule interviewed for the Indianapolis Colts’ head coaching vacancy, despite signing 21 players during Early Signing Day

-We saw the coach at Western Illinois bolt the next day to go to Arizona State and join their staff..and this could keep happening in college football. Do we still think the early signing period is the best thing for the sport?

January 11th: It’s Scott Frost’s world, and we’re all living in it—did he really take a jab at Alabama’s approach to the QB spot this season?

-One snippet of a long quote from Frost makes it sound like he knew that Tua Tagovailoa was better than Jalen Hurts based on his personal recruitment of him….but if you read the whole quote, he actually praises Nick Saban for taking a risk at halftime and replacing Hurts at QB

-Scott Frost seems pretty feisty in his quotes regarding everything from the playoff and more…do you want him to dial it back or keep being assertive in words?

-Also—if Jalen Hurts was available, would you want Nebraska to pursue him as a transfer QB?

-And—Huskers land a JUCO WR in Mike Williams

January 10th: Final recap of Nebrasketball’s win over Wisconsin…did Jordy do enough to make you believe in him again?

-He definitely wasn’t perfect, but defended decently, hit FTs, and scored 9 points. He is definitely an imposing figure inside, but lack of skill is still evident…

-Is there an argument for Thomas Allen to be playing more significant minutes until Glynn Watson gets out of his funk? Certainly a capable PG if needed…

January 10th: Sean Callahan (Husker Online) / Shut Up Sipple

-What impact does Noah Vedral’s transfer make on the QB position? Has to sit out this year…if Martinez stars as a freshman, does this move make sense for Vedral?

-Thoughts on if UCF should be higher in rankings and what Bama’s win does for college football going forward

January 10th: Do you believe the era of embarrassing blowout losses is over with Scott Frost back as head coach?

-Ever since 2001, Nebraska has been plagued by scores of 70-31, 62-36, 70-10, 76-39, 62-28, and worse. It’s become the norm under Frank Solich, Bill Callahan, Bo Pelini, and Mike Riley

-Scott Frost might not win ‘big’ right away, but can he bring the sense of togetherness right away that might not eliminate losses, but might eliminate the snowball effect losses when the Huskers look like they give up and allow big point totals and yardages?

January 10th: Barrett Ruud comes back to Nebraska officially, and Zac Taylor gets a promotion in the NFL

-Ruud finishes off Scott Frost’s staff and will be the inside linebackers coach…while Zac Taylor gets the QB coach spot for the Rams…how do you assess all the former Huskers getting coaching jobs?


January 10th: Huskers land transfer QB Noah Vedral from UCF, adding to a full QB room

-UCF tried to block a transfer to Nebraska, but Vedral got his way and will join the Huskers, though he will have to sit out the 2018-19 season due to transfer rules

-How would you view this in Vedral’s stance? He would be sitting 2 more years behind McKenzie Milton at UCF…but at Nebraska, he has to sit out a year, and if he really wants a chance to start the 2019-20 season, he’s going to have to hope that Adrian Martinez/Patrick O’Brien/Tristan Gebbia don’t breakout as an obvious starter of the future in the 2018-19 season…

January 10th: Nebrasketball holds off a very unimpressive Wisconsin team, 63-59, to move to 3-2 in B1G play

-Though just 18 games, Nebrasketball now has as many wins as they did ALL of last year (12)

-James Palmer and Isaac Copeland were good, and Jordy had a productive game (9 points, 6 rbs)….but once again, Glynn Watson looked lost on the court. What gives? Cary Cochran might have an answer…

-Nebraska now has a very favorable stretch coming up (@ Penn State, vs. Illinois, vs. Michigan)…what did last night’s game do in terms of your confidence in that stretch coming up?
