Happer & Stephens: July 26th, 11am

Mike Schaefer (247 Sports/Huskers Illustrated): Part 3

  • Will Nebraska get to a point where they dominate Iowa in their time under Scott Frost or will it always be back-and-forth?

Mike Schaefer (247 Sports/Huskers Illustrated): Part 2 / Shut Up Sipple

  • Thoughts on Scott Frost’s performance at B1G Media Days…what was the national perception you heard mostly?
  • Nebraska players through the board have gained a lot of weight–presumably mostly muscle–this offseason. Why were they so undersized in previous years?

Mike Schaefer (247 Sports/Huskers Illustrated): Part 1

  • Nebraska gets Nick Henrich and Mosai Newsome to the class…how important was it to get Heinrich, and what do we expect from guys like Chris Hickman now?
  • Also, Newsome—he’s a kid from eastern Iowa and had an offer from Iowa, but went to Nebraska instead…is that a major eye-opener for the Hawkeyes?
  • Do you expect any more commitments to come as we get to Fall camp next week? Is this surprising with the timing of these guys at all?

With Scott Frost back in Lincoln, is Wisconsin the EASIEST team to prepare for on Nebraska’s schedule?

  • Wisconsin isn’t an option team, of course; but the way they operate to when Frost played at Nebraska is similar, so Frost should recognize most of the concepts he sees when studying them. Is this a major reach? Probably so, but who cares.
  • Also, SONG OF THE DAY: “Little Poor Me” – LAYTO

The amount of weight gained this offseason by almost every player makes you wonder if this team actually lifted the past few years

  • The media guide came out with listed rosters, and players like Jerald Foster gained 25 pounds since the last roster; Carlos Davis gianed 30 pounds; Brendan Jaimes gained 40 pounds; Ben Stille gained 35 pounds; and Daishon Neal gained 35 pounds. Heck, even Adrian Martinez gained 20 pounds. Will we be able to see a stronger and more fit team off the bat?

Sip is back from Chicago…what were his biggest takeaways from his time at B1G Media Days?

  • Scott Frost was the star, with all the national writers praising his words and every move, the first time that’s happened at Nebraska in a loonnnnnggggggg time
  • Did anything he said alarm you at all? And Joel Klatt came on with Happer in Chicago and said he thinks Nebraska’s ceiling under Frost is what Oregon did under Chip Kelly—to the tune of a 46-7 record. You’d take that in a heartbeat, but do you see it the same way?
