  • Who will be the favorite?
  • Lots of turnover for Creighton and lots of newbies for Nebraska
  • Other Gavit games…

The Drive: June 22nd, 3pm – Creighton gets the opposite of the death penalty, sadly

  • Recruiting violations committed by an assistant coach leads to a mere slap on the wrist and a stern finger waving

Is Nebraska doing as good of a job as they could be in recruiting the state better? High school coaches have mixed thoughts…

-Husker Online did an anonymous survey with 30+ players and coaches in the state of Nebraska, and a lot of responses said that Scott Frost and his staff haven’t done a great job in communication—some coaches and players said they’ve done OK, but there were enough responses that were concerning

-One coach said that Nebraska’s coaches struggle to evaluate talent and prefer to offer out of state talent vs. in state talent. That’s certainly possible…but how do you feel about that?

Sip and Jake talk about Hunter Sallis and in-state recruiting

-What happens if Hunter Sallis decides to stay home and picks Creighton?

-Should Nebrasketball be held to the same standard when it comes to keep talent in the state?

Do you still trust Scott Frost’s offensive playcalling to get Nebraska in the end zone and on the board more?

-We know it’s been an underwhelming 3 years so far for the offense. The end of the first year was exciting, but it hasn’t lived up to that since then. Does Frost need to reset his offensive mindset or is he on the right path still? What can he do to give you more confidence that he knows what he is doing?

-Also…Jake saw something yesterday regarding the YMCA promoting e-sports that is bothering him…what happened to promoting physical activity?
