Robin Washut (Husker Online) / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-How would you describe Scott Frost’s mood yesterday at the press conference?

-COVID forfeits are in play this year for B1G teams…do you think we will see any actually happen?

-Cam Taylor-Britt said the Illinois game feels like the Super Bowl for this team…can we see that kind of mentality in play every game?

No depth chart released and not much said at all from Scott Frost on Monday…are we in for some surprises on Saturday?

-Is there a reason why we didn’t see a depth chart? Something up their sleeves or not?

-Does anyone care if Frost doesn’t talk very long if they simply win games?

-Was Sip uncomfortable in Frost’s short time at the podium with the mood he displayed?

Mascot ratings!!! Purdue Pete comes in as the ‘creepiest’ in all of college sports

-Per Quality Logo Products’ blog, Purdue Pete comes in No. 1 in creepiest mascot, and No. 2 in worst overall mascot (behind Pistol Pete at OK State)…but somehow Willie the Wildcat at Northwestern is the BEST mascot? What a joke!

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-Blackshirts are out, ahead of the season…were you a believer in giving them out before the year or earning them during the season?

-What was the reaction you saw from defensive players when they received their Blackshirts?

-Do you expect to see a pissed off Husker football team on Saturday in Champaign?

The Blackshirts are out to 12 defenders, and more from Monday’s press conference

-We heard from all 4 captains (Adrian Martinez, Damion Daniels. Austin Allen, Cam Taylor-Britt) and several other players, and of course, from Scott Frost

-12 Blackshirts are out, so if you’re in the camp that says they shouldn’t be given out until they deserve it in a game, that’s not the case this year

-What else stood out from the press conference? Also—good news on Nicklin Hames

The Spillover with Connor Happer and Mike Schaefer

Let’s take a quick step away from the Kool-Aid and hear from former Husker tight end Kurt Rafdal / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Per Boise State beat reporter B.J. Rains, Rafdal says he hasn’t noticed a dropoff in talent level from Nebraska/Power 5 down to Boise State/Group of 5 so far. But they’re usually a solid program, anyways…

-Also, just shy of 8,000 fans at Nebraska volleyball’s Red-White scrimmage…never ceases to amaze

Could Nebraska possibly be the ‘surprise’ team of the B1G in 2021?

-Think about it—no one has high expectations for the team. 6-7 wins is seen as the common guess when talking to people. No one thinks they’ll be phenomenal, but no one thinks they’ll be terrible

-We always talk about this team being able to get on a heater…why can’t they? No one thought Northwestern would be great last year, and they won the division. Some people thought Minnesota would be good 2 years ago, but not a large amount of people—and they were great

-If anything, Nebraska might be the STRONGEST pick for a sleeper or surprise team in the B1G

You know what’s weird? Seeing former Husker QB Johnny Stanton as a fullback in the NFL

-We’ve addressed this in the past, but it’s so easy to forget about until you see it again—Stanton played significant time for the Browns on Sunday in their preseason game

– Nebraska names it’s 4 captains for the season…did they get it right?

-Adrian Martinez, Austin Allen, Damion Daniels and Cam Taylor-Britt will be the captains. Daniels is the surprise of the group, as some might think Ben Stille or JoJo Domann would be names there…do we read too much into that or not?

-Also, Jake is drinking more and more Tua Kool-Aid as he watches him play in preseason

Holy mother of all things in the world, it is HUSKER GAME WEEK!!!!!

-It’s hard to believe, but there will be an actual Nebraska football game this weekend. The first Big Ten game for any team. Nebraska vs. Illinois. HOT DAMN

-Beyond last week’s news of an NCAA investigation, drama is low—whatever injuries we heard of seem to not be a huge deal (we’ll see about Turner Corcoran if he plays against Illinois, but otherwise pretty clean)

-Think about some of the little things Nebraska could do on Saturday to make you smile AND believe: kickoffs through the end zone, kickoff returns to the 35 yard line, red zone and 3rd down conversions….and winning the turnover battle
