The Drive: October 10th, 4pm

  • Will Nebraska be able to count on Maurice Washington against Minnesota?
  • Thirsty Thursday with Kevin Meier from Meier’s Cork and Bottle
  • Drunk Segment
  • Fish that can live on land, you are supposed to kill it
  • Do you try and get tricky with McCaffrey?

How much can we rely on Maurice Washington going forward this season?

-Frost said Washington was suspended for the first half against Northwestern for a violation of team rules, and then he didn’t do much in the second half, netting negative yardage. He hasn’t played a full game for a long time, whether that’s for injury or suspensions, but has been vital to the offense’s success when he’s played. How much can we trust him to be there when Nebraska needs him?

Maurice Washington once again showed he is Mr. Big Play / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-How good was Maurice on Saturday? Wow. Scott Frost’s offenses live off of big plays, and Maurice delivered multiple times (as did Dedrick Mills with a long 61-yard run)…can we expect these big plays to continue against better teams?

Through two games, it’s pretty evident that Maurice Washington is Nebraska’s best RB / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Dedrick Mills ran 8 times for 24 yards, and had 2 catches for 21 yards, compared to Washington’s 15 carries for 77 yards, and 4 catches for 112 yards. Washington also has explosion that Mills doesn’t have. Is it clear that Maurice should be the main back, or does Sip think Mills should get more chances?

-Also, it was nice to see Adrian back in the running game again…better than last week…

Nebraska takeover?

What’s a success this weekend in terms of what Nebraska gives up to Laviska Shenault?

-Is the offensive line a concern or do you think they’ll bounce back against Colorado and going forward?

-Maurice Washington’s new preliminary hearing pushed back until October 17th…think he is a full-go until then? He didn’t play in the first half on Saturday but did play second half…

More Maurice Washington……. should he play?

Jake and Sip continue the conversation regarding Maurice Washington

Maurice Washington’s status for tomorrow’s opener is a game-time decision and more from Scott Frost

-Frost told reporters yesterday that Washington’s status is going to be a game-time decision…to make the situation that much less resolved as we head into gameday. Surprised nothing was announced?

-Frost also commented briefly on Katerion Legrone/Andre Hunt, and also confirmed that although Luke McCaffrey is listed as the No. 3 QB, the plan is to redshirt him this year

The Drive: August 29th, 3pm

  • Nothing on Maurice Washington + more from Scott Frost on the final media availability before the season kicks off

  • What’s Poppin’ (brought to you by Barney Insurance)

2 Days away from football, two Huskers suspended indefinitely, though

Troy Walters announced Wednesday that WR Andre Hunt and TE Katerion Legrone have been suspended indefinitely from the team. That would explain why Hunt wasn’t on the 2/3 deep at an of the WR spots. Is he a huge loss though? Doesn’t seem like it.

Also, Wan’Dale Robinson is providing ‘wows’ in practice, and no news on Maurice Washington. And how about Chris Hickman making a move at TE.

More audio from Wednesday’s practice

Can J.D. Spielman, Wan’Dale Robinson and Maurice Washington fix Nebraska’s poor kick/punt return game?

-When you’re at the bottom of the nation in a stat like that, like Nebraska was last year, it’s a big red flag and a major problem. Jovann Dewitt mentioned on Tuesday that he believes Spielman can be explosive, and the others, too

-Return game has really been an issue ever since the last days of DPE in 2014 (man, did we take that for granted)…can that be another part of Nebraska’s game this year that has a drastic improvement?
