Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft has the Patriots trading up to get Justin Fields…is he the perfect fit for Bill Belichick?

-The top 3 picks, it seems right now, would be Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, and Mac Jones…then Fields would follow somewhere after that, possibly at No. 4 with the Falcons

-Kiper thinks the Pats will trade up high enough to get Fields…is he the right fit for that offense?

Do fans still believe a non-power run offense can win consistently for Nebraska in the B1G?

-It’s a big question about the whole operation and what happens going forward. It’s not a great sign that Nebraska’s running backs are either injured or young. Which puts a lot of pressure, again, on Adrian Martinez and receivers/tight ends that have a lot of newcomers

-You ask yourself if Nebraska is going in circles and why they don’t go back to what worked in the past. You want to be like Ohio State but can’t recruit to their level. There’s no reason why you can’t be like Wisconsin. How hard is that to accept? Can everyone get on board for that style or not?

-Gabe Ervin has been one of the big stories of spring ball…it IS Kool-Aid season…but how much are you drinking of it when it comes to him?

-How do you feel about Nebraska’s backup QB situation? Can they go into the season with such lack of of experience behind Adrian or do they need to add a transfer QB if possible in the summer?

-What’s the biggest thing to monitor going forward leading up to the Spring Game?

The latest ESPN FPI rankings have Nebraska at 46th for 2021…right behind…BALL STATE

-The FPI rankings give Nebraska a 0.8% chance of winning the conference this year…and has Nebraska going either 5-7 or 6-6 this season

-Other items of note: Iowa State is ranked 4th and is labeled a “darkhorse” national title candidate…still incredible to think about. But Matt Campbell has his team in a big spot in Ames

-Other things of note? Northwestern is seen as a potential 8-4 team and just outside the Top 25

The Drive: February 8th, 5:25pm – Matt Campbell gets an extension

  • Iowa State is out here making moves and keeping their good coach
  • Nebraska makes some hires

Iowa State and Northwestern finish off their strong seasons with resounding triumphs over Power 5 teams…why can’t Nebraska keep up with them?

-On one hand, the success of the Cyclones and Wildcats makes you believe that if they can have that type of success, then why can’t Nebraska? We believed Scott Frost was an upper-echelon coach coming to Nebraska, but it hasn’t seemed that way so far

-Northwestern’s key to success is continuity, and look at what their 5th year senior class delivered for wins and accolades—wow. And for Iowa State? Matt Campbell’s first year was 3-9 at a program that struggled perennially. Since then? 4 bowl appearances and only one season below 8 wins (7 in 2019)…this year was certainly the growth year, though

If Jim Harbaugh leaves/gets fired at Michigan…would Iowa State’s Matt Campbell be their top candidate?

-It happened! Nebraska lands a 5-star in Bryce McGowens…is this a program-changing get, and if so, how?

-Keisei Tominaga has been described as the ‘Japanese Steph Curry’…are you all in???

-Update on status of fans for the Golden Window Tournament and B1G schedule…?

-We thought it was Clemson and Notre Dame in the ACC…how much of a chance does Miami have this weekend against Clemson, though?

-How long can Matt Campbell stay at Iowa State and fend off bigger programs or the NFL?

-How important is it for Nebraska to keep in-state talent from going to other programs?
