November 21st: Should Tanner Lee go pro, and if so, how high could he go?

-Lee was non-committal about it on Monday, and Mike Riley was, too—but it seems like a strong possibility that he will go

-Did the game against Penn State help elevate him at all? Is he a top 3 round draft pick or no?

November 21st: Tony Davis (Former Husker RB) / Shut Up Sipple

-Is it too much to ask for in this game against Iowa to simply match their physicality? Is it possible for Nebraska to do that for a full game?

-Should Nebraska accept Iowa as a rival? Also, what happens if Scott Frost says no to Huskers?

November 21st: Mike Riley always has great answers after games and in press conferences, but never had it in games…where was the disconnect?

-Riley on Monday again was stoic in answering tough questions about his tenure at Nebraska, his thoughts on the Penn State game, and what to expect vs. Iowa, and it begs the question as to why his time couldn’t have the same poise on the field as he does at the podium

-Was he ever allowed to have his stamp on the program or not? That answer might never truly be clear…he is known as a good coach by many accounts, but it hasn’t been evident

November 21st: Bill Moos wants to make Iowa/Nebraska a true, consistent rivalry; are you on board?

-Moos spoke on the Husker Sports Network last night and said he thinks Nebraska should embrace what they have with Iowa and build on it…it’s probably time for fans to stop being so elitist toward Iowa, but is that possible?

-Players, like DPE, on Monday said it’s a rivalry without a doubt…will you accept the hate and let it be a true rival? This matchup this year has little bite, however

November 21st: As we approach the last game of the season, it’s time to ask the question: Was the 2007 or 2017 defense worse for Nebraska?

-Both were putrid, hideous, awful, and terrible, but Sip has the stats to inform which one was actually worse

-Even with that said, is it clear which was worse? And is it possible for the 2018 defense, with whoever is coaching it, to have as quick of a turnaround as what happened in 2008 defensively?

-More thoughts from Riley on defense:

November 21st: Will Stanley Morgan get to 1,000 yards on the season in the finale against Iowa?

-Morgan, just 88 yards away from 1,000 yards, would be the first Husker WR EVER to eclipse 1,000 yards in a season…and that would actually be something for Riley and staff to claim to on their way out


November 20th: Back to Nebrasketball…can they build off their performance Sunday to make some noise in their Thanksgiving weekend tournament?

-Maybe there’s reason to believe that the game against St. John’s wasn’t what to expect in big games…but maybe not. Who knows at this point. Can Copeland play consistently like he did Sunday?

-Also, basketball is bizarre sometimes: Northwestern got HAMMERED at home by Texas Tech, 84-49. Wow.

November 20th: Was Tanner Lee’s performance on Saturday, combined with the rest of the season, enough for him to enter this year’s NFL Draft? / Shut Up Sipple

-2018 brings a TON of unknowns with where this roster goes for Nebraska, and what style of offense they run…can Lee take the risk to come back to an offense that might not be good for him? Or is he NFL-ready now and should take the leap and declare for the draft?

November 20th: With all the coaching changes going on, will Nebraska need to move quickly this week to land Scott Frost (or whoever their top candidate is)?

-Jim Mora, Jr. fired at UCLA on Sunday, which means another BIG job is open (UCLA, Tennessee, Florida, Nebraska (soon))…it’s believed that Mora was fired now to give UCLA a chance at landing Chip Kelly before Florida can

-Rumors this weekend from Lars Anderson at Bleacher Report and others kept surfacing that Scott Frost supposedly has an offer from Nebraska that he’s ‘likely’ to accept, but it’s hard to believe anything at this point. Regardless, this is going to be  VERY interesting week around college football to see if anyone can get ahead of anyone in the hiring position for good jobs

-Another report said that Willie Taggart might want back in the Southeast ASAP….that could change things up, too….

November 20th: Iowa, on Senior Day, loses at home to Purdue, 24-15, because of course they did

-How in the HELL did that team put up 55 points on Ohio State? Since that game: 14 points against Wisconsin and 60 yards of offense….and a 9 point loss at home to Purdue. Goodness.


November 20th: Nebrasketball looks GOOD in 92-70 win over North Dakota….Isaac Copeland puts up 30 (!!) points

-THAT’S what we were expecting from the 5-star transfer from Georgetown, who looked good everywhere on Sunday—3 point shooting, free throws, inside game, defense…a treat to watch

-Also, Anton Gill was hitting deep jumpers consistently…was this a game where Nebraska finally found something in their shooting touch, or is this still going to be a frustratingly inconsistent shooting team? (spoiler: yes)

November 20th: Huskers give up 42 points in first half at Penn State to officially fall short of making a bowl game, in a game that’s final score wasn’t the true story

Huskers covered the spread—by a lot!—but in pity style, as they lose 56-44 at Happy Valley, in a game they led 10-7, but then trailed at halftime, 42-10, in a fashion that’s been far too common this season

-Huskers couldn’t stop the pass, and couldn’t stop the run. That’s a problem. And despite a nice start to the game, the offense went cold in the 2nd quarter, and that led to the predictable romp. Did you ever worry about their ‘want-to’ or ‘heart’ in the game? The nice start helped cool that notion, possibly..
