DP & Stephens: Brian Christopherson (Husker247)

BC of Husker247 joins the show for our weekly conversation.

  • Will there be an open competition in the offensive line group?
  • If they’re going in the I-Form, how does that affect the tight end usage?
  • Are we worried about the lack of commits for Husker Football?

The Student Section: Husker Football discussion

Nick gives his list of ten husker football players since he’s been alive — or that he can remember.

 

DP & Stephens: Husker football

Husker Football’s practice was open to the media today for 30 minutes.

 

Jake wants to know if the casual golf fan is interested in The Masters without Tiger Woods

-Nebrasketball lands a commitment from 7-footer Oleg Kojenets…is this someone we expect to play right away?

-2 scholarships are still open for the 2021-22 recruiting class for Nebraska…who is next? And won’t it make Nebraska keep going higher from 18th in the recruiting rankings as they are right now?

-Does the B1G take any step back next year or keep on rolling as a very deep conference?

Mario Verduzco and Ryan Held were fired up after practice yesterday…what did we learn?

-Verduzco was talking about taking care of the football and avoiding turnovers…which is something we all can agree on

-Jake brought it up briefly yesterday but is curious again…where do fans stand in terms of thoughts on Adrian Martinez?

-Also, audio from Ryan Held and players

Aaron Rodgers is guest hosting Jeopardy….would that be a better retirement job than being a football analyst?

-Rodgers apparently crushes it as a host (it was filmed in February), and there’s some conversation about him possibly being a successor to the late Alex Trebek…would that be a better retirement job than being a football analyst on TV somewhere?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY (sponsored by Sartor Hamann Jewelers)

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-Mario Verduzco says he wants Adrian Martinez to have less turnovers this year…how does one simply do that?

-Nebraska is relying on a transfer from the FCS level (Samori Toure, Montana) to be a go-to player right away as a wide receiver…how difficult is the transition, though, from FCS to B1G football?

-Can a defense be elite without a stand-out pass rusher?

Gonzaga/Baylor last night for the national championship…was the game as good as advertised?

-Sip picked Baylor and Jake picked Gonzaga…who got it right? Was it as entertaining of a game as we all hoped it would be in a 1 vs. 1 matchup?

-We made it through the college basketball season that certainly had plenty of pauses, but culminated in mostly normal NCAA Tournament…have to call it a successful season, right?

-A reminder that Nebrasketball, with their newest commit, is now 18th in the recruiting rankings for the 2021-22 class!

The Recruiting Hour: March 25th – Opening Segment

Mike and Happer break down some new recruiting news including who will be visiting for the Spring Game on May 1st.

The Ireland game is likely moving to 2022…where are the top 5 places that Sip and Jake would like to see a Week Zero game played at for Nebraska in the future?

Part of that would also depend on who you’re playing. Would it always be a conference opponent? And how could you convince that team to always be the one that’s giving up the home game?

-Does Sip have any interest in covering a football game at a venue like Soldier Field or Wrigley Stadium?

-Jake is positive that Sip would list El Paso as one of the places he’d want to play a game at…
