Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 1

-Who do you think we’ll see start for Nebraska at QB on Saturday? Who SHOULD it be?

Are people aware of what starts today? THE FREAKING MASTERS STARTS TODAY

Midway through the season, what is the best story in college football?

-Indiana is ranked 10th at 3-0, BYU is 8th at 8-0 and a stud QB, Liberty is 7-0 with 2 wins vs. ACC teams…

-What is the feeling of a Nebraska fan when they see ranked teams like Liberty, Coastal Carolina, Iowa State, Indiana, Marshall, Louisiana-Lafayette, and Northwestern, while you’re 0-2?

Erik Chinander isn’t the point of frustration through 2 games, can it stay that way?

-52 points against Ohio State obviously wasn’t great, nor was forcing only one incompletion against Justin Fields, but the defense has looked better in general, and wasn’t the problem against Northwestern, either

-Luke Reimer has looked great, as has Ty Robinson. The D-line has looked good in general…the DBs have looked OK, and the LBs have been better than they were last year. Are we seeing legitimate progress or too early to say?

-Post-practice Zoom audio from Wednesday…

If Nebrasketball lands 5-star Bryce McGowens…do you believe they could land more 5-stars in the future?

-Ahem….HUNTER SALLIS. He won’t come to Nebraska (likely), but it’d be one hell of a story for lowly Nebraska to land a 5-star player, thanks to relationships already built with players at the school

-Kansas State landed several big time players in the years of Bob Huggins and Frank Martin..why can’t Nebraska?

-Who should get the start for Nebraska at QB on Saturday?

-Is this a mad Penn State team Nebraska is facing, or a deflated and defeated squad?

-How did Luke Reimer become the best defensive player on the roster?

Where does the season go if Nebraska wins this weekend, and if they lose?

-If Nebraska wins, you get the monkey off your back, beat a good program that’s having a disappointing year, and feel good about your chances of going to 2-2 when you play Illinois next week

-If you lose…you still feel good about beating Illinois, but not THAT good. And also, you start wondering how many wins you’re going to get this year. 1? 2? How fun is that discussion? Not fun at all. But possibly very real.

Sean Callahan (Husker Online)

-Who do you think will start at QB on Saturday, and who SHOULD start at QB?

-What is Nebraska’s problem in the red zone, and is it fixable? Been bad all of Scott Frost’s tenure…

-Do you think we’ll see a pissed off Penn State team or one that knows their goals for the season are over 3 games in?

Dedrick Mills was viewed by Sip and Jake as an extremely important player for Nebraska this year…so why hasn’t be been that involved through 2 games?

-Nebraska’s QBs are their RBs. That’s how it’s been the first 2 games. Mills does have 2 TDs, but not much going on the ground. Is it a problem with the offensive line not opening holes or something else?

-Can we blame Mills for this or not? Doesn’t really seem like it’s his fault, though we haven’t seen any explosion from RBs at all really, besides the QBs having big runs. Is that a sustainable offense? Doesn’t seem like it

-Also, Jake loves 11am games this year, and is curious why others don’t feel the same…
