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?

Fans seem very optimistic after Nebraska baseball’s opening series…overreaction or justified? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Nebraska blew a lead in the first game and lost, but bounced back with nice wins in games 2 and 3 to take the series, with really all 3 parts of the game going well: pitching, fielding, and hitting

-We never got to see Will Bolt’s team play conference play last year. There’s fans who were really impressed with how they played this weekend. How much can we take away from it?

Jake can stop panicking, because Nebraska football is keeping one of their top 5 in-state players!

-Columbus’ Ernest Hausmann announced Sunday that he is committing to Nebraska, the first commitment of the 2022 class for the team

-Nebraska still likely won’t keep the top 3 players to stay, but at least they aren’t getting blanked. It’s the little things.
