Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa look like franchise QBs in this draft…and Jake is sad because his Dolphins probably won’t get either

Burrow looked better in the game, but Tua still looked good in the second half. Yet, Jake is sad because his Dolphins won their 2nd straight game, and look like they won’t have a chance to get either QB. THAT’S. SO. DOLPHINS.

Nebrasketball loses to Southern Utah in 2 OTs to fall to 0-2 for the first time since 1987-88 / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

  • Yep, that happened again. Nebraska led for 37 minutes in the game, but couldn’t close with free throws again, and despite a Jervay Green 3-pointer to force OT at the end of regulation, Nebraska couldn’t get the bucket it needed in the overtime periods to win. And now they’ve lost 2 ‘bye’ games. Yikes.
  • So….let’s dive into what Cary Cochran said earlier. What sticks out that Nebraska can build off of?

Scott Frost isn’t sleeping well with where Nebraska’s at right now…will anything over the final 3 games help at all?

  • Sip sat down with Frost at length last week and wrote about it, as Frost mentioned that he has no thoughts about changing his staff because he believes they’re all going to get it done here….but also mentioned that he doesn’t deal well with guys who don’t have an urgency to win at all costs, in terms of players
  • How can the staff find answers in the next 3 games to have something to build on heading into 2020? How crippling could 3 losses following the bye be; and how beneficial could winning 2 of 3 to get to a bowl game be?

Let’s give some more props to Lovie Smith and Illinois, who are BOWL-ELIGIBLE

  • And it wasn’t exactly easy for the Illini—they trailed 28-3 at one point, and 31-10 entering the 4th quarter AT Michigan State….and ended up winning, 37-34, to become bowl-eligible. Simply awesome. Also….Northwestern falls to 1-8…and Indiana is RANKED!

Cary Cochran (Former Nebrasketball shooting guard)

  • Nebrasketball loses its first 2 games to ‘bye’ opponents UC-Riverside and Southern Utah…how would you calm the masses who are panicking right now?
  • How long does it truly take for a team to come together? These guys are still all brand new to each other. But you thought the talent would still be good enough to beat these types of teams…
  • Can Fred Hoiberg’s offensive style win in the Big Ten down the road? What’s the key to success?

What a weekend in college football….and HOW ABOUT THE MINNESOTA GOLDEN GOPHERS?!

  • The weekend was as good as advertised, with Minnesota leading from start to finish in a 31-26 win over Penn State—that’s now 11 straight wins for the Gophers—and then LSU/Alabama was great, too, with Joe Burrow outdueling Tua Tagovailoa, in a 46-41 epic game
  • Also, Wisconsin/Iowa was good, with the Badgers winning 24-22, and Iowa State/Oklahoma provided a great nightcap, with the Sooners winning, 42-41.
  • But….it’s all about the Gophers, baby. How about Row The Boat!!! Sip owes PJ Fleck (and Lee Sterling) an apology!

Ohio State (-28) vs. Northwestern
Iowa (-18’) vs. Purdue
Penn State (-9) vs. Michigan

Chicago (-3) vs. New Orleans
Dallas (-3) vs. Philadelphia
Minnesota (-28’) vs. Rutgers

Is there any chance Nebraska could finish this year like Minnesota did last year?

  • Minnesota was in the midst of P.J. Fleck’s 2nd season last year, and got hammered in Lincoln to fall to 3-4, and a few weeks later lost 55-31 to Illinois to fall to 4-5, before finding a way to blow out Purdue, rout Wisconsin, and then pummel Georgia Tech in the bowl game. Things started clicking at the end of the year
  • Is that possible for Scott Frost’s team this year? A bowl game is the lowest goal going forward. It must happen. There would also be a weird conversation going about ‘progress’ if Nebraska won their next 2 games to get to 6-3, but then lost the next 3 to go into bowl season at 6-6. So many storylines…

  • Ohio State appears to be a College Football Playoff team…but how far behind them is Wisconsin?
  • Who are your top 4 teams at the moment when it comes to the Playoff?
  • Did you expect Ed Orgeron to have this type of success at LSU? Is Joe Burrow a potential Heisman?
