-What’s next on Rick’s personal favorite albums of all time? And will Sip get the trivia questions right?

Nebrasketball is set to start in 3 weeks…and they have exactly ONE game scheduled

-Do you realize the insanity of that?! The only scheduled game is the B1G/ACC Challenge game against Georgia Tech. That’s all.

-We’re not talking about 3 months, we’re talking about 3 weeks. The B1G has given no conference schedule, nor any confirmation that the MTE in Lincoln is good to go. Where’s the decision makers?

If there’s one thing that fans might like about Greg Austin compared to Mike Cavanaugh, it’s his lack of stubbornness in determining playing time

-Former offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh—of the Mike Riley regime—was famous in Lincoln for saying he didn’t want to rotate his linemen, and he wanted to play his 5 starters the whole time. Like the great Milt Tinopir…just with must less talent

-Greg Austin confirmed yesterday that although he likes what he starters are doing, he’s not afraid of subbing guys in and seeing who is the best at the position and what they have for depth….isn’t that what  you prefer at all areas?

Greg Austin says it takes a while to develop the offensive line… the question is, have we seen definitive progress there?

-Austin spoke with the media on Wednesday after practice, and on top of praising Scott Frost’s leadership this ear so far, he also was discussing the offensive line development, and said that young lineman aren’t going to be physically ready in a tough conference like this.

-The question is, are we for sure seeing development with the young guys so far? And the narrative can change on that in these final 5 games, too…
