Robin Washut (Husker Online) / Shut Up Sipple (Bagels & Joe)

-How concerning is Wan’Dale Robinson’s decision to transfer?

-Nebraska’s game against Illinois has been cancelled followed COVID positive test by Tier 1 staff. How does this affect the season?

-The Huskers fell to Indiana 84-76 in Derrick Walker’s Nebraska debut. Did Walker’s first performance create momentum in the program that Fred Hoiberg can build on?

Nick Saban further cements himself as the best coach of all time

-Was this his best team? Quarterback Mac Jones told reporters following the game that he believes this is the best team ever.

-With three Heisman candidates, an elite defense and an offensive line which received Heisman hype itself, where does 2020 Alabama rank among the best of all time?

-How far is Nebraska from a National Championship?

Saban’s Home for Wayward Coaches

-Leading receiver Wan’Dale Robinson announced Monday via Twitter that he would be leaving Nebraska to be closer to home. Robinson also indicated he was also displeased with his usage by the Huskers coach staff.

-Wan’Dale may have been worth a win on the schedule. How does this impact the pressure on Frost?

-The Huskers are getting bigger at WR but its hard to get too excited considering WR play under Frost.

-Matt Farniok leaving for draft as well. Continuing to look like Nebraska will have to be led by the defense. Will Frost adjust?

 

 

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-Can Ohio State beat Alabama in the national championship? Were you surprised they beat Clemson?

-Notre Dame made the playoffs, but was blasted again…how close are they to actually having a chance to win a playoff game?

-Why are Iowa State and Northwestern winning at impressive levels?

Notre Dame gets made fun of a lot for their lack of success in big games, but wouldn’t Nebraska fans kill for what they have?

-ESPN Stats & Info put out a stat that Notre Dame is 0-7 since 1998 in BCS or New Year’s Six games, being outscored by 161 points and all 7 losses being by 14+ points

-That’s not a fun thing to deal with, but think about the 8 straight bowl losses Nebraska had at one time in its history and compare that to now…that doesn’t seem so bad, does it?

Happy New Year! Ohio State pummels Clemson and offers a refreshing championship game, and Jake couldn’t be happier….what about Sip, though?

-Although it feels like we see Clemson/Alabama every year, don’t forget it was LSU/Clemson last year, so it technically wouldn’t have been what feels like an 8th straight year of this matchup. But it didn’t end up that way, anyways

-How about the Buckeyes? 6 TD passes for Justin Fields, who was battling an injury for the whole 2nd half, and Ohio State blew the doors off of Trevor Lawrence and company. Does this make the championship that much more intriguing to you? And what a showing for the B1G this makes now!

-Also, some good news for Nebraska, with JoJo Domann returning and a commitment from Hawaii

The CFP is set, with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Notre Dame clinching berths

-Notre Dame got smoked by Clemson on Saturday, but remained ahead of Texas A&M and others for the final spot….and Ohio State barely got by Northwestern…will either of those teams have any shot vs. Bama/Clemson?

  • Will we see Saban on the sideline?

Will a lack of flexibility by Big Ten mean cancellations rather than postponements due to COVID?
