Early Break

The Patriots cut Julian Edelman yesterday…and Jake has some surprising stats about his tenure

-Edelman ranks 2nd all-time in NFL postseason career receiving yards AND also in postseason receptions. That is incredible, and for a guy that was a QB in college

-Nebrasketball hired Nate Loenser last week and Kurt Joseph yesterday…what do they provide and is Doc Sadler heading out?

-Xavier Pinson had Nebrasketball in his final 4 teams, but committed to LSU yesterday…who is the next transfer to watch for?

-Keisei Tominaga played well in the playoffs for his college team…how much of a factor do you think he’ll be at Nebraska?

Adrian Martinez is talented, but he needs help with an effective running game and receiver talent…can he get both this season?

-It’s Spring Kool-Aid season, so don’t drink too much. But hearing that the team is taking deep shots and the WRs are making plays makes you feel good about the offensive legitimately trying to make big plays again. Remember when big plays were the goal? Maybe that’s happening

-No one can deny that Adrian Martinez has talent and can be incredibly impressive at times. But can Nebraska provide what he needs—a quality run game and solid WR play—to help him take off again?

Kevin James is going to star as Sean Payton in an upcoming Netflix film…could be believable in that role?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-When a freshman running back appears to be the most impressive of a group, what does it tell you about the older guys recruited ahead of him?

-Jake was in Kaz’s neck of the woods this weekend (South Carolina) and it made him wonder how Kaz and anyone could recruit kids away from that area to Nebraska and the Midwest. So how do they?

-How do you win close games when they have eluded you so often in previous years?

Nebraska is taking deep shots in practice to wide receivers…wouldn’t that be nice to see in 2021?

-Scott Frost spoke to media on Monday, as well as Samori Toure and others, including Cam Taylor-Britt who said that the offense is taking more deep shots and getting the ball to Omar Manning (!), Toure, Zavier Betts, and Alante Brown. Yes please!

-Also, Frost mentioned he’s impressed by Gabe Ervin, who appears to be an oncoming star of the spring.

-More audio from coaches/players from Monday…

A-Rod is going to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise….seems odd, right?

-Minneapolis doesn’t seem like A-Rod’s scene. But he apparently is buying the franchise. Hmm.

Jake put hot sauce in his eye this weekend and suffered the consequences / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Jake is not a hot sauce guy, but on his vacation to Savannah this past weekend, he tried some Ghost Pepper hot sauce and also accidentally rubbed some residue in his eye and it was very uncomfortable

-Listeners chime in and call Jake a weakling for his issues with the hot sauce

Does any part of you wonder if a team that hasn’t made a bowl game in 4 years still knows how to win at a high level?

-These are big questions. These are also players who almost entirely came from successful high school programs, where they helped to win games. So it’s not like they come from a constant losing culture

-Nebraska has a proud winning history, but these current players haven’t witnessed that in their lifetime. Does a part of you wonder if a huge breakout is possible when they haven’t really had any consistent success in their time here?

Another series win for Husker Baseball as they take 2 of 3 from Maryland

-Nebraska won game 1, lost game 2, and put on a great performance on a beautiful day in game 3 to win another series…you can’t ask a team to sweep series, but you can expect them to win series, which they are

UCF is putting Twitter handles on the back of their uniforms for the Spring Game…are they jumping the shark or starting a trend?

-UCF announced that their players won’t have their names on the back of their jerseys for the Spring Game, but instead will have their Twitter handles on the back

-Good luck with that if you don’t know a player’s jersey number by heart! A one-time thing or something that will happen going forward with NIL?

Jake is back from Georgia/South Carolina, and thinks it should be a destination on anyone’s bucket list

-Jake went to Savannah, GA and also to Tybee Island and Hilton Head Island, and thought it was an amazing place. Could he convince Sip to go?

-Also, The Masters wrapped up…was it full of drama? What was it like for Jake being in the same state as it, during the event?

-Also, congrats to Husker women’s bowling on their 8th national championship over the weekend
