Ongoing discussion of B1G Transfer rules and status of Nebrasketball’s difficulty to ascend in conference next year

-Jake and Sip take more calls and texts on the big topic of the day regarding B1G Athletic Directors discussing their idea for a one-time transfer policy in Division 1 for all sports without needing to sit out a year.

-And, regarding Nebrasketball…can they really ascend quickly next year? The reasons for concern are that those “gimmie” wins of the past are now tough wins…there’s not really an easy win anywhere (Northwestern’s record is bad but they’ve played a lot of close games)

As we look ahead to a new year and new decade, do you truly believe it is possible for Nebraska to make it to the College Football Playoff?

-It’s a big step to discuss for a team that’s now missed 3 straight bowl games to end the decade. But, we’ve talked about the impressive recruiting class Nebraska pulled together despite a 5-7 season, and you’d have to think that winning consistently can help that go even higher eventually…right? 

-Wisconsin fans probably believe their team can make the playoff, and for good reason; look at 2017 when they were undefeated going into the Big Ten Championship game but lost. They were right there. Nebraska fans have been through hell…so let’s do if they really still believe..can this program get back to that level?

Ohio State wants to trademark the word ‘the’ in front of their name…what could Nebraska trademark that’s equally as dumb? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

CBS Sports lists 5 Nebraska players in their All-Time First-Team All-American team, and several more in 2nd/honorable mention…what’s the all-time Nebraska team?

-CBS Sports lists Tommie Frazier as the ALL-TIME (!) first-team All-American QB. That’s a hell of a statement and certainly an honor for him. Also on first team were Johnny Rodgers as a punt returner AND all-purpose player; Dave Rimington at center; and Ndamukong Suh on the d-line

-Alex Henery was listed as 2nd-team kicker; Will Shields as 2nd-team OL; Rich Glover as 2nd-team DL; Dominic Raiola as honorable mention center; and Aaron Taylor as honorable mention. Those guys definitely make the all-Nebraska team, too…but who else makes it all-time?

Who will be the bigger weapon on offense this year: Maurice Washington or Wan’Dale Robinson?

-This is all assuming that Maurice is cleared to play the whole season with the case in California still hanging in the balance—and that’s obviously not guaranteed. But, in a perfect world…

-Both are capable runners, and both are capable pass catchers. Who will be the most relied upon and dynamic of the two? Are they completely similar players, or are there differences that help separate one above the other? Maurice does have one year of experience under his belt already…
