Wan’Dale Robinson’s marijuana possession charges are dropped….how much does that matter?

The charges were dropped because of a technicality related to the recent passage of an industrial hemp bill…is this a big deal or did you view it as a big deal in the first place?

Tanner Lee released by the Jaguars…does his lack of NFL success make you even more cynical of the Mike Riley era? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

Lee’s time in Jacksonville was defined by what we saw a lot of at Nebraska; interceptions, and many of those pick 6s. He was a 6th round pick, but is seen as a bust. Remember the first round discussion for him? Where the hell was that coming from? Did Riley and staff pay off Phil Savage and Chris Mortenson to give big hype to Lee?

What is a fair expectation for Nebraska’s rush defense this year?

  • Looking at last season’s NCAA defensive stats, holding teams to 4.0 yards per carry puts you at 47th nationally. We know the story of Nebraska’s struggles against Wisconsin and others against the run…how much can the addition of Darrion Daniels, Jahkeem Green and the emergence of other young d-linemen help to fix that?
  • Also, Mo Barry mentioned that the d-line is doing a better job of not letting blockers get to the 2nd level…

Can Adrian Martinez truly be a team-wide leader before only his second season?

  • Mo Barry had only good things to say about Martinez and even compared his even-keeled demeanor to Tom Brady (cue Jake throwing things against the wall)
  • It’s one thing to lead the offense, but to be a dynamic voice for the entire team at such a young day is pretty hard to do.
