The Drive: November 13th, 5pm

  • There was a big ole story about how Nebraska sucks on ESPN.com
  • People are super triggered about Bill Moos saying “The walk-on program is only in it’s second year”
  • Wrap things up

In case you weren’t sure why Nebraska fans still have high expectations, ESPN.com’s rankings of the best teams ever in college football might help understand

-ESPN.com listed the 1971 Nebraska team as the BEST TEAM in college football history. Whoa. The 1995 team was listed as No. 4. 1994 Nebraska was 15th, 1997 Nebraska was 24th, and two other teams in top 50

The Drive: August 9th, 5pm

  • ESPN writes about programs that could make a year two jump and SPOILER ALERT: Nebraska is one of them
  • Having to back off the physicality?? I NEED A CIGARETTE
  • Wrap things up

We didn’t think the hype could go any higher, but it just did—ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky picks Nebraska as his darkhorse team to make the COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF

-WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON?!?!? This is it. We’ve found it. The highest the hype can go. No one in their right mind can pick Nebraska in the national championship, or winning it. But we also didn’t foresee anyone picking Nebraska to be in the TOP 4 TEAMS OF THE WHOLE COUNTRY

-Orlovsky pointed out on ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ that Nebraska doesn’t have any extremely tough road games, and all the tough games come to them. That’s true, and no one denies that. But if you’re expecting them to finish all of those games off, that might be a lot for year 2 of the program

Was the Van Horn era the best that Nebraska baseball will ever achieve, or can they get back to that level of success ever again?

-Sip talked with ESPN’S Kyle Peterson about what Nebraska should expect from their baseball program, and he said Nebraska should make the postseason 3 out of 5 years, and a super regional once every 5-7 years. Does that seem about right or not?

-If that’s truly the expectation, it seems fair to say that Van Horn’s success might be the peak of Nebraska baseball and it might never be achieved again. We like to think that success can be replicated and found again, but maybe that’s just not the case for Husker baseball. Is that how you view the program or are you hopeful about a resurgence of consistency in the postseason for Nebraska?
