Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa look like franchise QBs in this draft…and Jake is sad because his Dolphins probably won’t get either

Burrow looked better in the game, but Tua still looked good in the second half. Yet, Jake is sad because his Dolphins won their 2nd straight game, and look like they won’t have a chance to get either QB. THAT’S. SO. DOLPHINS.

Nebrasketball loses to Southern Utah in 2 OTs to fall to 0-2 for the first time since 1987-88 / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

  • Yep, that happened again. Nebraska led for 37 minutes in the game, but couldn’t close with free throws again, and despite a Jervay Green 3-pointer to force OT at the end of regulation, Nebraska couldn’t get the bucket it needed in the overtime periods to win. And now they’ve lost 2 ‘bye’ games. Yikes.
  • So….let’s dive into what Cary Cochran said earlier. What sticks out that Nebraska can build off of?

Scott Frost isn’t sleeping well with where Nebraska’s at right now…will anything over the final 3 games help at all?

  • Sip sat down with Frost at length last week and wrote about it, as Frost mentioned that he has no thoughts about changing his staff because he believes they’re all going to get it done here….but also mentioned that he doesn’t deal well with guys who don’t have an urgency to win at all costs, in terms of players
  • How can the staff find answers in the next 3 games to have something to build on heading into 2020? How crippling could 3 losses following the bye be; and how beneficial could winning 2 of 3 to get to a bowl game be?

Let’s give some more props to Lovie Smith and Illinois, who are BOWL-ELIGIBLE

  • And it wasn’t exactly easy for the Illini—they trailed 28-3 at one point, and 31-10 entering the 4th quarter AT Michigan State….and ended up winning, 37-34, to become bowl-eligible. Simply awesome. Also….Northwestern falls to 1-8…and Indiana is RANKED!

Cary Cochran (Former Nebrasketball shooting guard)

  • Nebrasketball loses its first 2 games to ‘bye’ opponents UC-Riverside and Southern Utah…how would you calm the masses who are panicking right now?
  • How long does it truly take for a team to come together? These guys are still all brand new to each other. But you thought the talent would still be good enough to beat these types of teams…
  • Can Fred Hoiberg’s offensive style win in the Big Ten down the road? What’s the key to success?

What a weekend in college football….and HOW ABOUT THE MINNESOTA GOLDEN GOPHERS?!

  • The weekend was as good as advertised, with Minnesota leading from start to finish in a 31-26 win over Penn State—that’s now 11 straight wins for the Gophers—and then LSU/Alabama was great, too, with Joe Burrow outdueling Tua Tagovailoa, in a 46-41 epic game
  • Also, Wisconsin/Iowa was good, with the Badgers winning 24-22, and Iowa State/Oklahoma provided a great nightcap, with the Sooners winning, 42-41.
  • But….it’s all about the Gophers, baby. How about Row The Boat!!! Sip owes PJ Fleck (and Lee Sterling) an apology!

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?!
