Nebrasketball plays tonight at Ohio State…any confidence in a win?

-Ohio State has lost 4 straight games, and that’s probably reason to be concerned if you’re a Nebraska fan—they’re due for a win. Remember last year in Lincoln? The Buckeyes came in riding a 4 game losing streak and beat Nebraska…the same game Isaac Copeland was lost for the year to injury

-2 minute drill: Tony Romo possibly getting $10-14 million per year as broadcaster…and Astros make serious moves based on cheating allegations

2020 will likely provide the first year in a while where Nebraska comes into a season with low local and national expectations….can that help in motivation?

-The Way Too Early Top 25s will be out today, and Nebraska will (deservedly) not be a part of the conversation, coming off of 3 straight seasons with no bowl game. Minnesota may have felt disrespected coming into this year with some people picking them as low as 6th in the West, yet they were one win away from winning the division, and ended with 11 wins. Can lack of respect help Nebraska in 2020 for motivation? That they actually have to go earn their respect?

It was a battle of the Tigers last night between LSU/Clemson for the National Championship…did the game live up to its billing?

-Trevor Lawrence vs. Joe Burrow looks fantastic on paper…who got the upper-hand? Which QB will be better in the pros, if you had to choose?

-There’s no doubt that Clemson will be back in this picture again next year with Lawrence back for another year…can LSU get back without Burrow and other weapons?

-More thoughts on the game…

The Big Ten conference is unpredictable every single night this year

-Explain this stretch of games over the weekend: Iowa, who had just lost at lowly Nebraska, comes back home and blasts 12th ranked Maryland. Then, Indiana beats ranked Ohio State….and Purdue, who had not been playing great basketball, beats Michigan State on Sunday afternoon by 29 points, despite scoring in the 30s earlier in the week. What…in…the….world

Berry Tramel (The Oklahoman) / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Oklahoma saw first-hand the dominance of Joe Burrow and LSU in the College Football Playoff…is LSU the team to beat in the championship or should that still be considered Clemson?

-Where are Oklahoma fans at right now with their program, having playoff bids but not performing well once they get there?

-Can LSU sustain this type of success with Ed Orgeron but without Joe Burrow in coming years?

It’s Joe Burrow vs. Trevor Lawrence tonight for the National Championship…who will walk away victorious?

-Nebraska has received endless flack this year for not showing interest in Joe Burrow twice, and all he’s done this year is win the Heisman Trophy in a runaway, and account for 8 TDs in a blowout win against Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff semifinals. Do fans want him to win or are they sick of the Burrow storyline against Nebraska?

-A lot of the public is betting on LSU, and that worked out well in the previous game…what happens tonight?

Travis Fisher and Ryan Held get pay raises..how vital is it to Nebraska to keep them here long-term?

-Apparently it’s somewhat important, as Fisher got a $125,000 raise, and Held got a $100,000 raise—both coaches had a very solid recruiting period and landed several players. How important is it to retain them for a long time?

Nebrasketball can’t complete the comeback and falls just short on the road against Northwestern

-All those 3s that Purdue and Iowa couldn’t make against Nebraska? Yeah, Northwestern made those 3s. A big halftime lead proved too much for the Huskers, despite getting it down to a 3-point deficit with 20 seconds left in the game when Dachon Burke was fouled shooting a 3 (no call, though), and Northwestern held on to win, 62-57. What were impressions from the game?

Admit it…as a Nebraska football fan, you love to see teams like the 49ers and Titans succeed in the NFL Playoffs

-Look at both of those teams..not full with the biggest free agents by any means or the biggest stars in the game…and they just play hard, physical football, solid defense, and they run the ball ferociously whenever they want behind great offensive line play…brings a tear to Husker fans’ eyes to see that

-Could football be shifting back to run-heavy again? We’ve been in such a pass, pass, pass era that it’s refreshing to see old-school football still win. It’d be fun to see Nebraska ride Dedrick Mills more…
