It’s not 4/20 without a good pot story, right? How about pot-infused pizza in California!

-Another addition for Nebrasketball with Keon Edwards…what’s the scoop?

-What’s the percentage chances of either Thor or Shamiel Stevenson coming back? Do they want either back?

-Jake thinks Nebrasketball should go into this year expecting to beat Creighton, who lost all 5 starters. Is he crazy or spot on?

Does the potential success of the receiving corps come down to if Omar Manning is as good as advertised?

-The wide receivers look better and bigger than last year, which brings optimism. We’re optimistic about Samori Toure, Zavier Betts, and Oliver Martin..and possibly Levi Falck and Alante Brown, among others

-But if these WRs are truly to become a great unit that’s reliable, makes tough catches, and gets some separation…does it all come down to Manning to be the true separator of an average unit to a really good unit? And where do the TEs fit in that conversation?

-Sip is high on the WRs after seeing practice on Saturday…when do you know if you for sure have a good cast of guys?

-What is the ceiling of a defense that doesn’t have a dominant pass rusher but is pretty good everywhere else?

-How aggressive with a starting QB can you be if your backups are all young and inexperienced?

If you have one choice, which is more important for Nebraska football this year: a reliable backup QB, or a dominant pass-rusher?

-Your first instinct at the question is to laugh, and say OBVIOUSLY you choose a dominant pass rusher

-But take a step back and think about it for a second. Nebraska’s defense SHOULD be pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. A dominant pass rusher could make them really good.

-But…..if Adrian Martinez gets hurt, and you don’t have a reliable backup QB, it makes defense pretty dang important, and puts the offense way back…if you have a reliable backup QB, you can have a decent defense without having to be great….

-Edelman ranks 2nd all-time in NFL postseason career receiving yards AND also in postseason receptions. That is incredible, and for a guy that was a QB in college

Adrian Martinez is talented, but he needs help with an effective running game and receiver talent…can he get both this season?

-It’s Spring Kool-Aid season, so don’t drink too much. But hearing that the team is taking deep shots and the WRs are making plays makes you feel good about the offensive legitimately trying to make big plays again. Remember when big plays were the goal? Maybe that’s happening

-No one can deny that Adrian Martinez has talent and can be incredibly impressive at times. But can Nebraska provide what he needs—a quality run game and solid WR play—to help him take off again?

-When a freshman running back appears to be the most impressive of a group, what does it tell you about the older guys recruited ahead of him?

-Jake was in Kaz’s neck of the woods this weekend (South Carolina) and it made him wonder how Kaz and anyone could recruit kids away from that area to Nebraska and the Midwest. So how do they?

-How do you win close games when they have eluded you so often in previous years?

Nebraska is taking deep shots in practice to wide receivers…wouldn’t that be nice to see in 2021?
