Can Jake convince Sip and listeners again that the Illinois game is the most important game of the year?

-Sip has said it’s crazy to think that the first game could be the most important, but Jake stands by it. It’s the only game that people think the O/U win total could really be changed the most for the season

-Most might say that Wisconsin or Iowa are the most important…does anyone stand with Jake?

Nebraska gets their 2022 QB commitment in Richard Torres…are we seeing a shift in philosophy of the future at that position in Lincoln?

-The first QBs that were recruited by Scott Frost and Mario Verduzco were pure dual-threat QBs with very strong running ability (Martinez, Vedral, Smothers)

-Add Heinrich Haarberg to the mix (6’5” but athletic) and Torres (6’6” and capable but not as athletic)…are we seeing a shift in mindset? If so, what is that mindset? Is a running QB as important now as it seemed to be earlier on?

What is the state of the Nebraska football program as we close out Year 3 of the Scott Frost era?

-Nebraska will either be 3-5 on the season after today, or 2-6….which equates to 12-20 or 11-21 under Scott Frost in his 3 years at Nebraska

-This year’s recruiting class was solid once again, getting to No. 18 in Rivals’ rankings, and with a lot of players from the 500-mile radius. Do we believe in the talent that has been brought to Lincoln? What are our thoughts on the coaching staff’s abilities?

Is the College Football Playoff already set or can drama this weekend change things up?

-Right now, the top 4 is: Alabama, Notre Dame, Clemson, and Ohio State. Clemson has 1-loss, but they are a favorite over Notre Dame, mainly because Trevor Lawrence is back this time…who gets in if Clemson loses again, though?

-If Ohio State loses to Northwestern and Clemson loses to Notre Dame…who ends up in the playoff?

Today is (possibly) Nebraska’s last football game of the season…what’s your level of optimism and interest for the game?

-Rutgers enters today’s game with more B1G wins on the season in Greg Schiano’s first year back with the program that Nebraska, which is utterly astounding, but a truth

-The concept of everyone playing on conference championship weekend is unique and welcomed in this strange year, but Nebraska plays on the day before, because they are at the bottom of the standings

-Are people jacked to watch football today and tonight? Or nervous of a loss to Rutgers?

We can dream a little bit…should Nebraska give Logan Smothers a chance to play on Friday?

-It’s a game you can’t afford to lose, sure… But if you do lose, it’s just another loss in a lost season. We know what you have in Adrian Martinez and Luke McCaffrey at QB… Why not let Smothers get a shot?

-Frost spoke highly of Smothers on Monday, and since this year doesn’t count at all for eligibility, is there a huge risk in playing him? What if he throws well? Interesting conversation for next year. Martinez and McCaffrey do not do much to excite the Fanbase in what is essentially your bowl game.
