Urban Meyer on FOX is going to be fantastic for college football

-Meyer was asked by the host of the FOX pregame show if this was Michigan’s year, and he responded, “their year for what?”….and went on to give them some credit, but definitely gave plenty of reasons to not believe in them

-Meyer also said he believes Nebraska will win the West and has high belief in Adrian Martinez

College football returned on Saturday, with sloppy play on the field AND on the College GameDay set

-Florida beat Miami (FL), 24-20, in a sloppy game to start the college football campaign (albeit with a 4.1 overnight rating, the highest on ESPN since November 2016); but it wasn’t just that. What got into Lee Corso and also Desmond Howard on College GameDay? Insanity.

It is officially GAME WEEK (!!!)….and how about the news that Scott Frost broke on Friday regarding the starting center spot

-Welcome to game week, friends. We’ve finally made it. There will be an actual game that counts that is played this Saturday at Memorial Stadium. Deep breaths. We did it.

-Speaking of deep breaths, did anyone expect Scott Frost to announce Cam Jurgens as Nebraska’s starting center on Friday? Jake wasn’t prepared for that, but here we are. We know all about what Frost thinks of him, but his health has been in question, and Will Farniok has been getting the reps at 1st team most of camp. Will there be enough time for Jurgens at the 1 going forward to feel like it will be a smooth start to the season on the offensive line?

-Also, Nebraska gets another running back commit (Marvin Scott III)…Ryan Held is the MAN

Ohio State wants to trademark the word ‘the’ in front of their name…what could Nebraska trademark that’s equally as dumb? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-‘The’ is ONLY the most commonly-used word in the English language! Let’s just go ahead and trademark ‘corn’ while we’re here at Nebraska! Or how about ‘red’?! What a joke.

-And, Shut Up Sipple goes to a Film Friday…how well does Sip know his Ben Affleck trivia? Could a 4-1 week happen?!

CBS Sports lists 5 Nebraska players in their All-Time First-Team All-American team, and several more in 2nd/honorable mention…what’s the all-time Nebraska team?

-CBS Sports lists Tommie Frazier as the ALL-TIME (!) first-team All-American QB. That’s a hell of a statement and certainly an honor for him. Also on first team were Johnny Rodgers as a punt returner AND all-purpose player; Dave Rimington at center; and Ndamukong Suh on the d-line

-Alex Henery was listed as 2nd-team kicker; Will Shields as 2nd-team OL; Rich Glover as 2nd-team DL; Dominic Raiola as honorable mention center; and Aaron Taylor as honorable mention. Those guys definitely make the all-Nebraska team, too…but who else makes it all-time?

Should we start being concerned about Kyler Murray in Arizona?

-Murray was miserable last night in the first half, getting sacked twice and causing 2 false starts, while falling behind 26-0 to Oakland. How concerned should Cardinals fans be?

Who will be the bigger weapon on offense this year: Maurice Washington or Wan’Dale Robinson?

-This is all assuming that Maurice is cleared to play the whole season with the case in California still hanging in the balance—and that’s obviously not guaranteed. But, in a perfect world…

-Both are capable runners, and both are capable pass catchers. Who will be the most relied upon and dynamic of the two? Are they completely similar players, or are there differences that help separate one above the other? Maurice does have one year of experience under his belt already…

We’re more than midway through Fall Camp…what areas that you were concerned about pre-camp are you now feeling better at?

-The hope here is…everything. It’s been a great Fall Camp so far, based on what we’ve heard from players and coaches, and guys are (so far) staying healthy (knock on wood).

-What unit did you have concerns about most entering camp that you believe are close to being resolved, or is it that even possible to say before we see how it all goes in an actual game? That’s probably the correct mindset.
