If you were to describe the past decade of Nebraska football to an outsider, what would you say?

-If there was one word you had to use to describe it, what would that be? Unfathomable? Front-loaded?

-Going on that, what one word would you use to describe the decade ahead for Nebraska? Scary? Optimistic? Apathetic? Lots of ways to go with it.

Nebrasketball takes on Indiana tonight on the road, and Purdue on Sunday at home…any hope for a close game at all?

-The Big Ten looks damn good this year. On Wednesday, Illinois beat top 10 team Michigan, and Rutgers (!) beat Wisconsin….and we’ve already seen Purdue beat Virginia by 29 points this year….not easy sledding at all. What’s the best hope for Nebrasketball in these games?

Nate Clouse (Husker Online)

-5 days away from Early National Signing Day…how much drama should we expect over these few days?

-What’s the ceiling for commits/ranking in this class….and the floor?

-How will Nebraska look at WR next year….mostly guys on the roster, transfers…or additions to this class?

Do you ever look at Ohio State and think that the rest of the B1G is hopeless?

-OK, maybe hopeless is a bit over the top. But you get the picture. Wisconsin pushed them in the B1G Championship, and they responded with 27 straight points to win the game by 13 points

-Michigan thought this might be the year they get over the hump…and they instead got blown out, as usual. And now, tomorrow, Ohio State has 2 players at the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

-Is there any chance that Ryan Day isn’t the real deal and they fall to mediocrity?

-What’s going on with Omar Manning’s recruiting process and how concerned should Nebraska fans be about losing him?

-What’s the timeline over the next week for expectations of commits? Will most players commit on the first day of the early signing period, or will there be many spread out over the 3 days?

Rick Hamann’s (of Sartor Hamann Jewelers) Song of the Day

-What’s Rick’s pick this week? And can Sip can any of his trivia questions right?

Bill Moos told Sip he hopes Scott Frost sticks to a system and doesn’t try to change things by year…will that strategy work out?

-Frost was confident when he came to Nebraska, saying he hoped the Big Ten would have to adapt to Nebraska. Well, they have. Is there a level of innovation that Frost hasn’t gotten to yet with his offensive strategy or not?

-What do you wish to see as that blueprint? And what happens if they can’t attract big WRs, too?

Has three straight seasons without a bowl game killed the buzz of recruiting in Nebraska?

-We’re talking recruiting on shows as we are less than a week away from Early National Signing Day, but it just feels like the buzz is nowhere near as high as in the past. Is that strictly because of falling short of expectations this season, or is it more than that? Maybe getting burned by players in the past who decided to go other places, despite investing a lot of time into following them?

-Maybe it’s good to have recruiting buzz die down. We’ve discussed the craze of it being way too much in past years, and all it brought was frustration about where the class rank was, or how some players maybe didn’t live up to expectations
