The Drive: January 20th, 4pm – Why are TV executives so obsessed with having big sporting events on Mondays?

  • March Madness schedule has the championship game on a Monday…WHY??
  • Tonight was supposed to be Nebrasketball vs Minnesota
  • Are there changes coming to the State Basketball tournament?

Sip wrote that Scott Frost and Fred Hoiberg need to make alterations to navigate through tough waters…what do he and Jake suggest?

-We talked a little about this yesterday in terms of recruiting, but what exactly should Scott Frost do to get over the hump? And what can Fred Hoiberg do to start finding ways to win games in the B1G?

Did both coaches turn into bad coaches or is it just a mess of a rebuild in both circumstances? How and when do we know for sure if they just aren’t going to get it done?

The Drive: January 19th, 4:25pm – Do you find yourself watching much B1G hoops when Nebrasketball is so bad?

  • Jake finds himself not watching much because it’s painful how far they are away from the other teams when he watches them
  • How do listeners feel about it? Watch less hoops when team is bad or watch the same amount?

Will Urban Meyer be successful in the NFL or not?

-Meyer is the new head coach of the Jaguars, and will likely have Trevor Lawrence as his franchise QB after April’s draft

-Will Ryan Day monitor how successful Meyer is in the league to see what his future could look like if he jumped to the NFL?

-Nebrasketball has already had its last 2 games postponed because of COVID, and now it’s next 2 as well…when will we see them play again? And will these games be made up or is that impossible?

-When will the results start to kick in for Fred’s team? A 2 week absence won’t help them at all in getting cohesive as a unit surely…

-Husker signee Bryce McGowens was on TV over the weekend…how did he look? How do you think he assesses all the losing by this team?

Justin Fields announces he’s leaving early to go pro, and it brings us back to a time when we thought Adrian Martinez might be on that track…what is the biggest cause for his demise?

-Adrian is a great person, and no one would ever deny that. But think about the conversations we had after his freshman year. We thought he might go pro and be a first round pick. He was high in Heisman conversations for his sophomore year! And it just never really happened

-Who is the most to blame for the fall of his stock? He’s still a fine QB and is still a great runner…just has running problems. Do we blame WR recruiting? Or WR development? How much blame do Frost and Verduzco get, and how much is Adrian’s fault? Seeing Justin Fields go pro just makes you wonder…

Sip and Jake weigh in on the mess that Tennessee football is and its comparisons to Nebraska

-Sip and Jake discuss the news of Jeremy Pruitt’s firing yesterday with the Vols and end up comparing how similar Nebraska and Tennessee have been for so long…but without the NCAA violations

-What kind of coach can Tennessee get now? Would Gus Malzahn go there or stay far away?

The Drive: January 18th, 5:25pm – Nebrasketball has lost 22 straight conference games and now is without 4 games

  • COVID has struck Nebraska hard…are you bummed to see them not playing or kind of relieved that they aren’t so they can’t keep the losing streak going?
