Why has it been so hard for Nebraska to develop quality pass-rushers consistently and solid linebacker play?

-The last all-conference linebacker at any level for Nebraska was Will Compton in 2012. Randy Gregory was a very good defensive end, but he’s proved to be an anomaly for the past 10 years of Nebraska football

-Is Nebraska getting anywhere near having quality pass-rushers and linebackers? Is there evidence to believe the guys on the roster can be game-changers or is it more of the same? And why?

Who gets the anger of fans if MLB doesn’t return this year—the players or the owners?

-Owners put out a proposal for players a few weeks ago, and nothing is moving forward, as the latest proposal for how players will get paid was not liked by players. Essentially, the lowest paid players will receive about 75% of their salaries, and the highest-paid would make 20% of salaries

-There is plenty of reason for players to not like what is being proposed, but don’t they become the bad guys if no season is played? Fans understand players being upset, but in a world without much sports at the moment, it might look greedy to the common fan and hard to forgive

-Would Sip, the casual golf fan, watch that event or not? Does it depend on if other sports are back to normal or not? Would people watch that over a baseball game or NBA Playoffs or something like that?

Is Adrian Martinez the key to Nebraska rising above mediocrity this season, or is it the defense?

-Both definitely need to improve for Nebraska to get to a bowl game…which is more likely?
