The Drive: February 15th, 4:25pm – I don’t think Brenden Jaimes’ comments were really illuminating at all

  • The whole thing is kind of weird
  • I just don’t think there’s anything you could say right now that would be surprising

Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 3

-Do you believe the 4-team CFP is set the way it’s going to be or is there a chance of someone falling out?

-Schaefer is a Vikings fan…how is kicker Dan Bailey still employed today?

Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 2 / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Nebraska/Rutgers tomorrow at 6:30pm in Piscataway…what are you hoping to see, and what are you EXPECTING to see from Nebraska?

-Thoughts on Nebrasketball being 3-3 through 6 games, and coming off of 2 losses to Georgia Tech and Creighton ahead of tonight’s newly scheduled game against Doane…

Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 1

-Early National Signing Day was yesterday…what are your thoughts on this class compared to previous classes and other B1G classes?

-Nebraska lands zero All-B1G players on offense…is it a recruiting problem or a talent problem?

-Do you expect big staff changes this offseason for the program or not?

Nebraska lands ZERO players on the Offense All-B1G First, Second, and Third teams…if it’s a recruiting problem, when does it change? And if it’s development, when does that change?

-Not surprisingly, Ohio State dominated with lots of players on all the teams, but it is annoying to see teams like Iowa with 4 players on the all-offense teams, and Indiana also with 4 players

-Whether you want to blame talent or development, both are issues right now, especially after year 3 in a coach’s tenure. Brenden Jaimes probably deserved a spot, but that still is only one deserving player

-When does the switch flip? Nebraska seems to have good o-line players, but still so much to prove. Excited to see Thomas Fidone in the future, but what about the ‘now’? So easy to recruit against Nebraska

6:25 – Brenden Jaimes doesn’t understand where the hype for this year’s team is coming from….do his teammates agree?

-Jaimes met with some reporters in the hallway and said that he said that he’s not sure why Nebraska is seen as the favorite in the West after two straight 4-8 seasons, and also with him never even seeing a bowl game before. He also made an interesting comment about what other players on the team are saying about the hype…

-Jack Stoll mentioned that he wants to win a Big Ten title ring, which is great, but we’ve discussed this a lot in the offseason; how does the team make sure they stay focused and don’t buy into the hype?
