Listener reaction to another rough week of performances for Sip in ‘Shut Up Sipple’

  • Another loss results in another 1-4 week for Sip, and the critics are getting loud. How will he bounce back in the coming weeks?
  • Also, Jake is going to Vegas this weekend…will he be the same person when he comes back?

  • Nebrasketball is 3-0 in Italy….how should we breakdown their exhibition slate so far?
  • When you see Creighton struggling in these exhibition games and Minnesota, too, does that mean anything for Nebraska fans to try and see where their team is at in comparison?
  • Baz is a big fan of Hootie and the Blowfish just like Jake…why can’t Sip appreciate the music?

Is it fair to expect a 1,000 yard rusher and 1,000 receiver every year going forward in the Frost era?

  • First off, is that completely necessary? Is it better to have one elite receiver who gets ALL the targets, or a group of pretty dang good receivers who are all putting up good stats, but not massive stats?
  • Now, back to the initial question. Last year, in Frost’s first year, Nebraska had a 1,000 yard rusher (Ozibgo) and a 1,000 yard receiver for first time in school history (Morgan). Even though that was the first time ever here, is it wrong for us to expect this offense to produce the same kind of stats yearly?

The Yankees and White Sox are set to play at the Field of Dreams location in Iowa next season

  • Dyersville, Iowa, is the location of the Field of Dreams from the popular baseball movie of the past…they’ll build a temporary 8,000 seat stadium for the game to happen…small crowd! Cool concept?

Interesting odds projections put Nebraska as a bigger favorite in more games and an underdog in only ONE game

SuperBook USA listed Nebraska with bigger margins of favorites in games against Purdue (-4), Wisconsin (-5), and Iowa (-7), but now a 6-point underdog to Ohio State. They really think Nebraska is going 11-1?
