Final thoughts on Nebrasketball’s game against South Dakota last night

-The 8pm tipoff between the Huskers and Coyotes had no fans in the stands, of course…what players looked good and what needs work?

-Also, there is NFL action today! On a Wednesday…in the afternoon! COVID brings out the weirdness in everything!

-Is there any way Nebraska uses a 2 QB system beyond this year? How do you recruit to that?

-Scott Frost says Cam Jurgens is the team’s center going forward…is that the best thing for the team?

How can Scott Frost and his team learn how to win close, one-possession games more often than not?

-Bo Pelini was the master of winning close games; it seemed like they all went his way, and it helped out his record big time. His teams found ways to win close, and Frost’s teams aren’t. They have been in many close games, and ended up on the wrong side of it. Does that indicate they are close to getting this going or not?

-Happer made a nice list yesterday of how the close games have gone in the Frost era and it brings back painful memories, but also shows that Nebraska was ‘right there’ a lot

-Also, Nebrasketball played last night against South Dakota…how did the Huskers look?

Sean Callahan (Husker Online)

-Can a 2 QB system ever produce consistently good results? What do QB recruits think right now of Nebraska?

-Do you believe Nebraska will play anymore games this season beyond the Purdue game?

-Are you surprised Scott Frost is sticking with Cam Jurgens at center?

Will a 2 QB system ever work extremely well…and how do you recruit to that?

-Matt Lubick said on Tuesday that both QBs (Adrian Martinez/Luke McCaffrey) will play against Purdue on Saturday, as they did against Iowa

-Can a team ever consistently with that method? What if Frost did that again next year with QBs? Is that something you could ever truly recruit to? What does a QB coming to Nebraska look at the job like? And the development process?

-More from Tuesday’s Zoom session…

-3 games into the season for Nebrasketball…what’s surprised you about the team so far, if anything?

-Derrick Walker suspended for 16 games to start the season…how important was he going to be?

-Can this team compete in the Big Ten this year and be respectable?

Sip and Jake hate recruiting…but maybe it’s time to discuss a better strategy for Nebraska football

-Marcus Fleming became the 5th of 5 freshman from Florida to leave the program yesterday, and although it’s a trend in college football for players to transfer, Nebraska get crushed at very important positions by it

-The 500 mile radius discussion is mentioned a lot, but maybe it’s more important than we think.

-Also, Northwestern clinched the Big Ten West title because their game against Minnesota got canceled this weekend…what a time…

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-How do you assess this program in Frost’s third year at 1-4 and 6 straight losses to Iowa?

-As a former center at the D1 level, how do you explain Cam Jurgens’ yips problems? Would you stay with him like Scott Frost plans to?

-Nebraska loses their 5th freshman from Florida in Marcus Fleming yesterday…do they need to change their recruiting philosophy?

Cam Jurgens remains Nebraska’s starting center, and another freshman from Florida leaves the program

-Scott Frost spoke to the media on Monday, and affirmed that Cam Jurgens will remain Nebraska’s starting center, despite getting pulled in the second quarter against Iowa for more poor snaps, which continue to plague him and the team

-Adrian Martinez also talked about how he likes ‘tough love’ as a player, but many players don’t like getting yelled at…interesting…

-Also, Marcus Fleming becomes the 5th freshman player from Florida to leave the class….not great for Travis Fisher’s great haul…

Cam Jurgens named to Rimington Watch List

-Where does he rank when you think of Nebraska’s top players? Not a lot of those “top” guys on defense. With defense looking optional this season, what are the expectations for this defense, against Ohio State and throughout the season?
