Everyone is a turd of some regard in the world of Erik Chinander—yes, you read that right

  • Chinander said we’re all turds! What exactly does he mean? Tune in for his explanation….what kind of turd are Sip & Jake?!
  • Also, which team in the Top 10 has the best chance of ending the season unranked?

  • Are you on board with the alternate uniforms that were unveiled on social media yesterday?
  • Nebraska is preseason ranked No. 24 in the AP Poll. But should they be?

Nebraska begins the season at No. 24 in the AP Poll, becoming the first team to come off of an 8-loss season to be preseason ranked since 2000-01

  • Nebraska is one of seven B1G teams to be in the preseason rankings, leading all conferences in most ranked teams (Ohio State at #5 and Michigan at #7 are the sole Top 10 teams in the conference)
  • Do you believe the conference is as deep as the preseason rankings would indicate? Is the B1G overrated, underrated, or properly rated? The SEC is second in teams ranked with 6, and look at the ACC—only 2 teams ranked (Clemson, Syracuse). Yikes. Maybe this will give the B1G a better chance at the playoff this year…unless the conference just eats each other up…Clemson probably prefers being in a conference with 1 other ranked team compared to 6 other ranked teams, no?

Jalen Hurts and Justin Fields both officially named starters at their respective schools…which do you have more belief in?

  • Lincoln Riley announced Monday that Hurts will start for Oklahoma, and Ryan Day announced that Justin Fields will start at Ohio State. Hurts obviously has more experience with being a former starter at Alabama, but does that automatically mean he’ll be the better QB this year?

Alternate jerseys unveiled for Nebraska…did they get it right or not?

  • Jake and Sip aren’t known as ‘big jersey guys,’ but even Jake thought the black look of the jerseys (for an unannounced game yet) look pretty dang good. Black is the way to go with alternates!
  • Are you in the crowd of “never change from traditional” or OK with an alternate uniform every year for one game?
