Houston, you have a James Harden problem

-Following a 117-100 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, Rockets Star guard James Harden says the team can’t improve enough to be a contender. Harden had 16 points on 5-16 shooting in the contest.

Jake and Sip get lost in a tangent on why load management is terrible in the NBA

-B1G hoops starts tonight for Nebrasketball! Can they hang with Wisconsin in Madison?

-Rutgers beats Illinois and moves close to the Top 10….can you make an argument that Steve Pikiell is a Top 3 coach in the league?

-Northwestern was supposed to be at the bottom of the league, but they just went and easily took care of Michigan State…is the conference just going to cannibalize itself this year?

Nebraska fans are rightfully allowed to be upset about a 3-5 record this year, but the B1G West’s relatively unimpressive year should provide hope to be competitive next year

-If only Nebraska would just stop beating themselves with the turnovers and penalties! Look at the West for next year…Northwestern is always a beatable team (they win close games…but are beatable), Wisconsin looks ordinary, Iowa is definitely good but not phenomenal, Minnesota beat you this year but still isn’t the same team, and Purdue/Illinois aren’t great either

-If Nebraska takes care of what we talked about at 6am, why shouldn’t they be able to compete for the division in 2021?

Jake’s NFL Week 5 Winners and Losers

-Jake’s Dolphins beat the Patriots and knocked them out of the playoffs…where does it stack up?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY (sponsored by Sartor Hamann Jewelers)

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-Nebraska beats Rutgers, gets to 3-5, and opts out of a bowl game. What was your reaction to that?

-Can Nebraska be a consistent run-heavy team like they were against Rutgers next year?

-Nebraska has been long plagued by turnovers and penalties…what can be done to clean it up?

Nebraska has had issues with turnovers and penalties for years and years and years….are they cursed or is there actually something that can be done to change it?

-Nebraska averaged 2.75 fumbles per game in 2020, which was 130th in the nation. 22 fumbles in 8 games (9 lost). It’s been a problem in the Frost era all 3 years, and a problem before that, too. Nebraska simply doesn’t just lose the turnover battle—they get blasted in it

-Beyond just saying they have to fix it in practices and in the offseason, what can actually be done? We hear it every year, and it never really improves. How do you fix turnover problems and discipline with penalties? We’re sick of Groundhog Day!

DP & Stephens: Husker Hoops, Pro Hoops
