DP & Stephens: Evric Gray

We step away from the football field to talk some hoops with former UNLV player, Evric Gray.

DP & Stephens: Husker Football Discussion

We continue to dive into the state of the program.

  • How comfortable are we with Adrian?
  • Logan Smothers talk
  • What’s next for Kade Warner?

DP & Stephens: Blog Jog

Mark isn’t here.

Rico isn’t here.

So we have to go to the third-string for the jog…Nick the Intern.

DP & Stephens: Nate Clouse, Husker Online

We bring in Nate Clouse of Husker Online to discuss the Huskers.

  • Why would Kade Warner leave?
  • Was Frost’s comments on McCaffrey just days ago him trying to keep Luke?
  • Other thoughts on the Offense

DP & Stephens: Husker’s in the portal

Minutes before the show, three Huskers including Luke McCaffrey announced he will be entering the portal.

We give our initial thoughts.

Do young people still want to go to football games?

-Husker Online took a look into the issue and wonders how the university will find ways to keep younger people interested in coming to games…

-Nebraska will end the month of January having played only 2 games the whole month. What was your favorite moment?

-How long can the B1G stay this good and this deep as a conference? Is it cyclical or not?

-How many games can Nebraska actually make up of all their postponements?

Do you believe in an offense in 2021 that has less QB run than it has in the Frost era?

-Nebraska has averaged 1.91 turnovers per game in the Frost era, most in the B1G West and 2nd in the conference only to Michigan State, and interceptions and fumbles by QBs have been a big reason why

-Do you believe Frost when he says they hope to not have QBs run the ball as much in 2021 or is it “see it to believe it”?

-Keep in mind, the QBs don’t take hits in practices…could be a reason why so many fumbles..

If you weren’t intrigued by the NFL, the QB situation heading into next year is fascinating

-Not only do you have Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields and Zach Wilson going high in the draft, but you also have Matthew Stafford, Deshaun Watson, and (possibly) Aaron Rodgers available…wow..

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

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-How important is staff continuity, even after a rough season, to help keep building the program?

-Can QB run as an emphasis of an offense be effective or is it bound for problems?

-Signing Day is now mostly done in December compared to February when Kaz was a coach…which would he prefer?

Yesterday’s ‘Snowmageddon’ lived up to it’s expectations…have we forgotten what that feels like for Nebraska football?

-Lincoln usually is below the expectations of any sort of major weather, but yesterday’s snowstorm was even better than advertised..which was a lot

-Last year, we thought that 4-4 was doable for Nebraska football, and even possibly 5-3. Nope. We got 3-5. Another year of underperforming.

-Are our expectations too high or just flat out wrong? Can Nebraska ever perform to proper expectations?
