Early Break

Jake was in Oklahoma City this weekend and was thoroughly impressed with Bricktown

-It was Jake’s bachelor party, and the one thing Sip told him to do (go to IHOP) was too slow for Jake to sit down and enjoy…but otherwise, it was an incredible place to go

-Jake would highly recommend a trip there for anyone who has ever thought about going there

The Big 12 continues to say they plan on playing a schedule this football season…is there any chance Nebraska could join in for one year?

-OK, it sounds a little crazy, but so is this football season in general. If one or two Power 5 conferences say they are playing ball but the other 3 say they aren’t, should schools that are open to playing be able to join a different conference for one season?

-Is there any way that some of the Power 5 plays and some don’t? If not, it’s only fair to the teams that want to play that they should be able to find a conference for one year that lets them do so…right?

A potentially postponed/canceled football season does not help in deciding how to play Luke McCaffrey

-Jake was talking to his boys on his bachelor party and the conversation of Luke McCaffrey came up. If the season was played, and Luke didn’t win the starting QB job…they still have to get him on the field a lot, right?

-Does Frost unveil a Wildcat offense? McCaffrey seems too talented to just have him as a backup QB and not on the field in other regards

Sources everywhere are saying different things about the college football season, but here’s something we DO know: The MAC isn’t playing football in 2020

-The MAC announced over the weekend that they won’t play football in 2020, and a lot of different reports came out among sports reporters and their various ‘sources’ that the Big 10 and other Power 5 conferences are leaning toward not having a football season

-With Fall camps underway, critical decisions are being made everyday. Is there enough optimism to make the season happen? LOTS of players from Nebraska and all across the nation tweeted out #WeWantToPlay in an attempt to motivate the decision-makers to allow the season to go on

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
