Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 1

-Was it necessary for Scott Frost to make a statement? It’s great that he did, but was it needed to be condemned if he hadn’t? Why do we demand statements from everyone?

-What happened with Henry Gray? Is anyone else in the same boat as him and potentially headed out?

-How likely is Nadab Joseph to become a Husker? And what’s the scoop on new commit, Shawn Hardy?

Lincoln Riley thinks coaches might push limits in voluntary workouts…why wouldn’t they?

-He said that ‘voluntary’ is a loose term in college sports, and he’s probably right. But winning and losing is all that matters at the end of the day at most programs. So, this is unavoidable…right?

Why is it so important for every single coach/organization to make a statement about Black Lives Matter?

-This is not saying it’s not a good thing to do so—it’s certainly a great look and good thing to do to support the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality and in support of George Floyd. But why do we demand statements to be made? Do we need to condemn those who don’t?

-Are we to perceive that any team or coach or organization who says nothing is not in support of it? Why do we insist on everyone to say something? People say silence says enough, in a bad way. And look at the response that Drew Brees is getting again for saying he doesn’t like the kneeling for the anthem

How wild would a 50-game MLB regular season be?

-That’s what the owner responded with in response with the players proposal for a 114 game season at 70% salary

-Imagine the drama… there would be no doubt that a major asterisk would be placed on the season, but EVERY game would mean that much more

We could be headed for the most bizarre sports seasons ahead for all sports for a variety of reasons

-People are going to be jacked about sports coming back/ and it might be a tone of sports all at once. Very exiting! However… With what’s happening in the past week with the George Floyd murder, you’re going to have a lot more kneeling and different things done before games (ex. Colin Kaepernick) that will bother some people, but be OK with more than it was before

-How will Nebraska fans respond if they see a bunch of players kneeling this year for the anthem? Will it be understood and accepted more because of whats happening or will it still be frowned upon?

Catching up on Sip’s conversation with Scott Frost… is unity going to be apparent, and will we see JD Spielman again?

-We hit on this yesterday when Sip was gone, but didn’t get his response to the conversations. How confident are we in true unity showing up and making a difference? And what about JD?

-Also, quick question-why is it “necessary” for every public figure to give a statement on what’s going on? Good on Frost for saying something, but doesn’t his actions of having a mostly African-American roster and Africa-American members on staff say enough about his views on racial equality?
