We’re more than midway through Fall Camp…what areas that you were concerned about pre-camp are you now feeling better at?

-The hope here is…everything. It’s been a great Fall Camp so far, based on what we’ve heard from players and coaches, and guys are (so far) staying healthy (knock on wood).

-What unit did you have concerns about most entering camp that you believe are close to being resolved, or is it that even possible to say before we see how it all goes in an actual game? That’s probably the correct mindset.

Is there more certainty now on the offensive line? And, QBs were talking everywhere after practice!

-Adrian Martinez is in such demand that instead of doing a side session, he spoke at the podium after practice that usually only Scott Frost, Erik Chinander and Troy Walters stand out. Pretty popular guy…

-What did Martinez say that was interesting post-practice? And the other QBs?

-Also, Will Farniok still at starting center yesterday, and it probably looks like he’ll be the starter.

Observe and report—eyes were on practice again on Wednesday, what did we learn?

-Jahkeem Green was spotted and practicing, donning the #4 jersey, and looking like a DUDE among the d-linemen

-No Wan’Dale, Kanawai Noa, or Alex Davis at practice…any concerns there or just precautions?

-How about some physicality in the Nebraska Drill, and also the elusiveness of Mo Washington in that drill….wow….what else stood out to Sip from his time there?

A San Diego Padres broadcaster ate a 29-year-old piece of gum on Sunday on the TV broadcast

-Mark Grant opened up a 29-year-old pack of baseball cards on the broadcast and ate the piece of gum inside, and said it pretty much disintegrated into powder right away and tasted terrible….would you ever try something like that? What’s the worst thing you’ve done for food in terms of how questionable it was to eat it?

Do you think that Adrian Martinez could actually be in the Heisman conversation this season?

-Early odds had Martinez as one of the top candidates this season, behind the likes of Trevor Lawrence and Tua Tagovailoa, Jonathan Taylor, and others

-Sip points out in his projection for the season that he could see a Nebraska 5-0 start, and that certainly would have people talking about Martinez, but a midseason struggle with Purdue, Minnesota and Northwestern, as well as a late loss to Maryland might hurt his chances…what’s the worst record Nebraska could have for him to actually be in the conversation this year?

Nebrasketball can’t be contained! A 4-0 trip to Italy provides plenty of optimism for what’s to come

-Nebraska finished off a 4-game trip with an 84-62 win over Italian Select…Thor Thorbjarnarson and Charlie Easley had strong starts for Nebraska, and the rest of the team helped contribute in the 2nd half for the win

-Remember Stella Azzura, the first team Nebraska played and beat by 31 points? Well they only lost to Minnesota by 5 points (which we already knew), but they only lost to Miami (FL) by 4 points yesterday…

Troy Walters and Erik Chinander both show up in Bruce Feldman’s Top 40 assistant coaches to watch in 2019…how long can Frost keep this all together?

-Feldman had Walters and Chinander among his Top 40 in an article on The Athletic, and the more Nebraska gets talked about and the more they back it up, their staff is going to become hot names in conversations for other big jobs elsewhere

-Frost lost the first member of his staff that he brought over from UCF in the offseason with Mike Dawson leaving for the NFL, and he was replaced by Tony Tuioti from Cal, who seems like a pretty good fit so far. How long will the rest of it all stay together, though?

-Also, Jahkeem Green officially clears paperwork to come to Nebraska, we’ll see him midweek
