-Fall camp starts tomorrow…what is it going to look like? Will we have any access at all or not?

-Can we start getting in Fall camp mode and breakdown what position battles there are? Or will we always be looking over our shoulder for what might possibly end the football season before it starts?

Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 1

-We have an actual schedule out for Nebraska and the Big Ten…how confident are you that Nebraska will actually play at Rutgers on September 5th? Noah Vedral!

-What stands out to you otherwise for the schedule? Is the conference doing it right to try and play so early compared to the SEC or not? COVID cases will likely spike when kids are back on campus…

-Aren’t all road games less daunting in general without fans? Why should we be concerned about playing at Iowa or anywhere when it’s going to be a quiet venue anyways?

Fall camp starts tomorrow…can we focus attention on position battles or will we be looking over our shoulders the whole time to see what might stop football before it even starts?

-The schedule release yesterday indicates the B1G plans on playing football this year, but Kevin Warren did say this doesn’t guarantee that football happens if it isn’t deemed possible with COVID cases

-Can we actually take a deep dive into Fall camp with optimism or will we just always think we are one step away from no season at all? Honest question.

Let’s take a deeper look at Nebraska’s schedule and compare to other teams in the conference

-Nebraska was fortunate to have Michigan State be the 10th game added, compared to Iowa adding a ROAD GAME at Ohio State for their 10th game (yikes), but who has the best chance to make a run?

-If Minnesota gets past their opening weeks, they could definitely push for the title, but their schedule is not as easy as Wisconsin’s, who somehow seems to have the easiest schedule of all

-What percentage chance does Nebraska actually have of playing Rutgers on September 5th? Also, COVID testing twice per week this year for teams

BREAKING NEWS: The B1G schedule is officially out, and Nebraska will NOT play Michigan

-Jake and Sip end the show with breaking news, informing listeners of the schedule…which begins on September 5th with Nebraska somehow going to Rutgers, where they have 28 positive COVID cases. How is that going to happen? That’s exactly one month from today!

-Also, Nebraska now hosts Wisconsin instead of going there, and that’s Week 3. The Huskers end the season with Michigan State as the new addition to the schedule….more Mel Tucker!

-Will we see more top college players opt out of the upcoming season like we saw from Minnesota’s Rashod Bateman yesterday?

What would the response in Nebraska be if players chose to opt out of the upcoming season?

-Minnesota’s Rashod Bateman opted out yesterday, and potential first round pick from Virginia Tech Caleb Farley (DB) opted out last week

-Ohio State’s Justin Fields said on Tuesday he understands why players might do that, but he has no intentions to opt out—good news for college football

-What happens if Nebraska had players opt out? How would that be received by fans and coaches?

Sean Callahan (Husker Online)

-The SEC is making moves on the season, but nothing yet for Big Ten. Will Fall camp actually start on Friday as planned or not? It’s now August 17th for SEC…

-Rashod Bateman opts out of the season at Minnesota and will instead prepare for next year’s draft…more to follow?

-Can Dedrick Mills get to 1,000 yards in a 10 game season?

Colorado State has trouble brewing with reported hiding of COVID-19 cases

-The Coloradoan reported yesterday that 10 or so players said that they were told by coaches to play through positive diagnoses for COVID-19 or they’d have their playing time threatened

-Several players refuted the story on social media, so it’s hard to know exactly all the details. Once again, social media is impossible to navigate to know what is real and what isn’t

-Also, Rashod Bateman and Micah Parsons opt out of playing this year in the Big Ten. Yikes.
