Nebraska is looking towards the future with a commit for the 2020 class

  • Logan Smothers, 3-star QB from Athens, Alabama, committed to Frost and the Huskers yesterday
  • He runs an 11 second 100m dash and ran a 4.48 40 at an Ohio State camp
  • The QB room is getting packed, is that going to be a problem down the line?

  • Will Nebraska get to a point where they dominate Iowa in their time under Scott Frost or will it always be back-and-forth?

  • Thoughts on Scott Frost’s performance at B1G Media Days…what was the national perception you heard mostly?
  • Nebraska players through the board have gained a lot of weight–presumably mostly muscle–this offseason. Why were they so undersized in previous years?

  • Nebraska gets Nick Henrich and Mosai Newsome to the class…how important was it to get Heinrich, and what do we expect from guys like Chris Hickman now?
  • Also, Newsome—he’s a kid from eastern Iowa and had an offer from Iowa, but went to Nebraska instead…is that a major eye-opener for the Hawkeyes?
  • Do you expect any more commitments to come as we get to Fall camp next week? Is this surprising with the timing of these guys at all?

With Scott Frost back in Lincoln, is Wisconsin the EASIEST team to prepare for on Nebraska’s schedule?

  • Wisconsin isn’t an option team, of course; but the way they operate to when Frost played at Nebraska is similar, so Frost should recognize most of the concepts he sees when studying them. Is this a major reach? Probably so, but who cares.

The amount of weight gained this offseason by almost every player makes you wonder if this team actually lifted the past few years

  • The media guide came out with listed rosters, and players like Jerald Foster gained 25 pounds since the last roster; Carlos Davis gianed 30 pounds; Brendan Jaimes gained 40 pounds; Ben Stille gained 35 pounds; and Daishon Neal gained 35 pounds. Heck, even Adrian Martinez gained 20 pounds. Will we be able to see a stronger and more fit team off the bat?

Sip is back from Chicago…what were his biggest takeaways from his time at B1G Media Days?

  • Scott Frost was the star, with all the national writers praising his words and every move, the first time that’s happened at Nebraska in a loonnnnnggggggg time
  • Did anything he said alarm you at all? And Joel Klatt came on with Happer in Chicago and said he thinks Nebraska’s ceiling under Frost is what Oregon did under Chip Kelly—to the tune of a 46-7 record. You’d take that in a heartbeat, but do you see it the same way?

Bret Bielema is the Consultant to the Head coach in New England

  • What exactly does that job entail?
  • Is he a coffee guy with a fancy title?
  • How long until he gets another coaching job?

  • Overall impressions of Scott Frost at B1G Media Days…is he being too brash or not?
  • Do you like the way Frost is handling the locker room with making newcomers go to the ‘freshman’ locker room? Has entitlement been a problem at Nebraska?
  • What was the vibe about Nebraska from the other national media members and coaches?

More conversation about Black Friday at B1G Media Days, about Nebraska/Iowa…do Husker fans believe they’ll begin dominating Iowa because of Frost or will it still be back-and-forth?

  • Let’s face it…Nebraska fans have been beaten down by bad years, but all of a sudden their egos are through the roof because of Scott Frost’s return. But let’s keep the ego out of it (if possible) for a second and think about this; will this rivalry always be back-and-forth, or will Frost make a massive deal about the Iowa game and make sure they rarely ever lose it again, and also rarely lose players from the state to them?

An MLB player makes his debut and throws a no-hitter in his 7 innings…his reward, however, doesn’t match up

  • Daniel Poncedeleon threw 7 innings of no-hit ball in his majors debut for the Cardinals…and the next day, was sent back to the minors. What kind of crap is that? Any comparisons to that?

A Maryland receiver says last year’s UCF defense was te toughest he’s played against because it was obvious they loved the game a lot…was that the problem with the previous staff here?

  • We did see a lot of injuries that Mike Riley reported and some of those may have been real, but some may have been guys that just didn’t want to work hard and fight through something that was nagging. Will something as simple as the amount of injuries go down because guys might find it so fun and rewarding to play for a leader like Frost?
