Bill Bender (The Sporting News) / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Bill’s Top 25 QB rankings are out ahead of the 2021 football season…where does this class stack up to recent classes of QBs?

-Adrian Martinez isn’t in Bill’s Top 25…be honest with us…is he anywhere close to it or a distant afterthought?

Are we confident enough as a fan base to think that Nebraska men’s sports already achieved rock bottom and is on the way up?

-Nebraska baseball really didn’t hit rock bottom ever, but they’re certainly on the way up. Football is yet to be seen but has SOME optimism, and basketball, too. Can it get worse still at all or is it only up from here for men’s sports, collectively? How damaging was the rock bottom period of time?

-Also, the College World Series begins this weekend…are listeners planning on attending and watching?

We talk about the importance of making a bowl game this year…but what record indicates that you believe in the coaches and where they’re going?

-Jake was talking to a person from out-of-state on the phone yesterday that was blown away when he told him that the goal for Nebraska in Scott Frost’s 4th year is essentially to make a bowl game. Very strange times indeed

-OK, but what if Nebraska does make a bowl game? Is that enough to indicate that they’re heading the right direction and you believe in the coaches? Kind of hard to admit that at 6-6 or possibly 7-5 in a 4th season. Keep in mind, Lovie Smith went 6-6 at Illinois, got to a bowl game, and got fired after the following season.
