Nebraska baseball was hungry to prove people wrong in 2021…how do we know if Husker football has that same hunger?

-We’ve thought they should have the hunger to prove people wrong the past 2 years, and it hasn’t been very evident. They say the right things in press conferences, but not always on field

-How could this team not be hungry to win? When does it become evident that they are?

Luke McCaffrey is another example of the difficulty of going for big-name recruits and the potential fallout that occurs after

-At the end of our show yesterday, we learned that McCaffrey would be transferring from Louisville after less than a week of practices there, as he wanted to be given the starting QB spot, but was apparently clearly not going to get that

-Remember when Scott Frost said last year at one point that he had no doubts that Luke was ‘the future’ in Lincoln? Was that said to try and please the McCaffrey family or truthful?

-It’s tempting to recruit players with big time backgrounds (see also: Keyshawn Johnson, Jr.)….but often times creates problems
