7:45 – Did Broncos’ coach Vic Fangio just prove yesterday that he’s the toughest SOB in the game?

-Usually, that description would be saved for a linebacker or hard-hitting safety, or maybe a stud defensive lineman. However, the 60-year-old first-time head coach passed a kidney stone yesterday and within an HOUR was out of the hospital and at Canton’s stadium to coach in the NFL Hall of Fame game. Have you ever heard of a more bad-ass story than that? Kudos, coach. Wow.

7:25 – Do you view DiCaprio Bootle and Lamar Jackson as a lockdown tandem or is there still lots to prove? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Lamar Jackson addressed this on Thursday, and mentioned the metrics (by Pro Football Focus) that had Jackson and Bootle as two of the most effective DBs in college football from last year….how confident are you in that duo to ‘break out’ even more this year?

-Where does Cam Taylor come into the mix? Anybody else you feel really good about back there?

7:00 – The Coaches Poll puts Nebraska a little bit back in their place; projected 4th in the Big Ten West behind Wisconsin, Iowa, and Northwestern

-The good news of that is that Nebraska is seen as the 26th ranked team in the country (first receiving votes outside the Top 25), so even though they aren’t seen as favorites to win the division by the coaches poll, they still are respected in the preseason

-Frost didn’t vote Nebraska in the poll, and the players all mentioned there have been gains and progress but there’s still more to go. Isn’t this more of where you think Nebraska should be projected?

6:45 – Patrick Mahomes gets his own cereal; “Mahomes Magic Crunch,” available at Hy-Vee…what would you want your own cereal to be like?

-Mahomes’ cereal is part of a promotion at Hy-Vee, and is only temporary until they are all out. They’ll no doubt sell well because of his popularity….if Sip and Jake both had a cereal that was made in their likeness or taste-preference, what would it be?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY: (sponsored by Sartor Hamann Jewelers)

6:25 – Brenden Jaimes doesn’t understand where the hype for this year’s team is coming from….do his teammates agree?

-Jaimes met with some reporters in the hallway and said that he said that he’s not sure why Nebraska is seen as the favorite in the West after two straight 4-8 seasons, and also with him never even seeing a bowl game before. He also made an interesting comment about what other players on the team are saying about the hype…

-Jack Stoll mentioned that he wants to win a Big Ten title ring, which is great, but we’ve discussed this a lot in the offseason; how does the team make sure they stay focused and don’t buy into the hype?
