Jake’s jinx of people he roots for continued this weekend at The Open Championship

-Jake was pulling hard for Louis Oosthuizen, which was the kiss of death for Louis, who played incredible for the first 2 days, but couldn’t get going in rounds 3 and 4 and lost to Collin Morikawa

Speaking of problems, how much could Nebraska have avoided long-sustained issues if they had just beaten Texas in the 2009 Big 12 title game?

-247 Sports wrote about the 10 most controversial games in college football since 2000, and Nebraska showed up twice—for their loss in 2009 to Texas, and their win in 2015 against Michigan State

-Everyone points to the fact that Nebraska hasn’t won conference title since 1999, and man, it would be great to say it’s been 12 years since their last title instead of the current 22 years it’s been..right?

An outsider’s perspective of Nebraska football says the Huskers need to stop running from their problems

-The Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel wrote a great piece on Nebraska over the weekend, and at one point even said what Jake has pretty much said many times: Nebraska looks like they’ve had a lot of regrettable plastic surgery since the good ol’ days

-Tramel also referenced the embarrassment of trying to back out of the Oklahoma game, and pretty much said that the Huskers can’t get out of their own way because they refuse to address any of their issues at great length

DP & Stephens: Nebraska Football Discussion

Nebraska doesn’t have as much talent as Ohio St, Michigan, etc.

  • Is Nebraska doing things to help them beat Ohio St?
  • Install whatever you need to install to beat whoever you’re playing.
  • Why are we so concerned with getting to Indiana’s level when we should be striving to be Ohio St.’s level?

Bock is in for Sorenson and he is still pumped about Cam Taylor Britt’s return

-Best CB since Prince? Best football player at Nebraska since ___?

-The Defense is clearly ahead of the offense at this point. Is this concerning or is actually good news for a quicker turnaround?

Sean Callahan (Husker Online)

-Cam Taylor-Britt and JoJo Domann announced they are returning to Nebraska next year..how much does that change the outlook for the defense?

-How soon can Nebraska achieve success that similar programs like lowa State and Northwestern had this year?

-Do you think the B1G will do away with divisions at some point in the near future?

Jake and Sip argue who is the better Nebraska defender between JoJo Domann and Cam Taylor-Britt

-The good news is both will return to the Nebraska football team for the 2021 season. Domann led the Huskers in tackles and Taylor-Britt garnered high praise from Travis Fisher in 2020.

-Getting both players back is a big off-season win for Scott Frost heading into year four, but which player do Sip and Jake think is more valuable?

Notre Dame gets made fun of a lot for their lack of success in big games, but wouldn’t Nebraska fans kill for what they have?

-ESPN Stats & Info put out a stat that Notre Dame is 0-7 since 1998 in BCS or New Year’s Six games, being outscored by 161 points and all 7 losses being by 14+ points

-That’s not a fun thing to deal with, but think about the 8 straight bowl losses Nebraska had at one time in its history and compare that to now…that doesn’t seem so bad, does it?

Happy New Year! Ohio State pummels Clemson and offers a refreshing championship game, and Jake couldn’t be happier….what about Sip, though?

-Although it feels like we see Clemson/Alabama every year, don’t forget it was LSU/Clemson last year, so it technically wouldn’t have been what feels like an 8th straight year of this matchup. But it didn’t end up that way, anyways

-How about the Buckeyes? 6 TD passes for Justin Fields, who was battling an injury for the whole 2nd half, and Ohio State blew the doors off of Trevor Lawrence and company. Does this make the championship that much more intriguing to you? And what a showing for the B1G this makes now!

-Also, some good news for Nebraska, with JoJo Domann returning and a commitment from Hawaii
