Jake is considering going to Minneapolis this weekend to watch a PGA Tour event…would Sip even attend an event like that if it was in Omaha or Lincoln?

The 3M Championship is making its debut on the PGA Tour schedule this week, and drawing big crowds—the state has certainly drawn big crowds in the past for big events like the Ryder Cup and U.S. Open….though Jake is excited about it, would Sip ever think about going to a golf event?

Could a loss to Colorado derail the season, or just be a tough loss? / Shut Up Sipple

Jake was asked this question by a listener the other day, and thought it was worth bringing up. Don’t you feel like Frost and this team are mentally tough enough to move past what would be a disappointing loss to Colorado, or is there something to that being a possibility of derailing the season?

Athlon Sports lists 5 bold predictions for the 2019 season for Nebraska….what are YOUR bold predictions?

  • Do Jake and Sip agree with any of these bold predictions? If so, or if not—what are their bold takes?

Former Kentucky star QB Jared Lorenzen dies at age 38…who is the last Husker player to be loved nationally?

  • Lorenzen, a nationwide lovable player in the early-mid 2000s at Kentucky, had battled cardiac and renal issues. He was beloved for putting Kentucky on the map, and doing so with a huge arm and good quickness despite being a massive QB; ‘The Hefty Lefty,’ and the ‘Pillsbury Throwboy” were popular nicknames for him
  • Rex Burkhead was beloved in Nebraska, but probably not on a national level like Lorenzen…who was the last player to be recalled as someone that the nation adored, if ever at all?
