Is being notably nervous in an introductory press conference a fair reason for fan doubt?

-Nick Sirianni appeared nervous in his introductory press conference with the Eagles. Do fans put too much stock in composure at press conferences?

-We’ve begged forever for the state of Nebraska to have better talent…and now it appears as if it’s too good to even stay in state in some cases…does Nebraska have any shot with any of them still?

-Michigan State came off a COVID break and got blasted by Rutgers and then beat by Ohio State…what do you expect from Nebraska when they return to play on Saturday?

-Do you believe the team will win a conference game this season?

Are you happy for elite Nebraska high schoolers when they go to big time college programs or do you anger instead?

-This is for all sports—not just football/basketball. Nebraska does a good job of keeping football players in-state, but seeing players like Xavier Watts go to Notre Dame was painful to a lot, but it made many others happy to see him go to a big name program

-For basketball….it’s a different story. Some guys were late bloomers that you missed (Mike Daum), and others, like the upcoming classes (Hunter Sallis, Isaac Traudt, Chucky Hepburn) are going to go big-time.

Dustin Diamond, “Screech” from ‘Saved by the Bell,’ dies at age 44…what were Jake and Sip’s go-to shows growing up?

-Diamond had stage 4 lung cancer and passed away on Monday. ‘Saved by the Bell’ was quite possibly the biggest TV show of the 90s…Jake was a little too young to appreciate it…what were Sip’s shows growing up?

-If Matt Lubick leaves Nebraska, do you replace him with a new WRs coach or find a special teams coordinator?

-How often are player transfers actually helpful to a team vs. being detrimental? Lots say addition by subtraction..

-Does Nebraska have what it needs right now to go to a next level next year as a football program?

Today is Groundhog Day…how long until Nebraska men’s athletics escape the time loop?

-The groundhog will either see his shadow or won’t today, but for Bill Murray in the 1993 movie, it didn’t matter—everyday was the same day

-Nebraska football and basketball feel the same way. There was a glimpse of hope in late 2017 when Scott Frost was hired, and then again in 2019 when Fred Hoiberg was hired, but they haven’t been able to escape the time loop of pain. Is this cycle going to spin out in the positive direction soon or do you have your doubts?
