DP & Stephens: Robin Washut (Husker Online)

Husker Online’s Robin Washut joins the show.

  • How confident are we that Omar Manning can get on the field?
  • Who is Robin buying high on? Myles Farmer? Samari Toure?
  • C.J. Wilcher and Oleg are officially Huskers.

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

-What are you most curious about seeing today in our 30 minutes of practice we’ll watch this morning?

-Mario Verduzco says Adrian Martinez needs to have less turnovers…how does that happen?

-Mike Gundy wants spring football games against other schools…are there more pros or cons to the idea?

-Sip has discussed in the past how the idea of an exhibition spring game against someone else certainly is intriguing, but it also creates some unneeded drama if Nebraska were to get exposed in the game and bring doubt into the offseason -Gundy says there’s not enough depth on Oklahoma State to provide an entertaining spring game, which is the case most places…who really has high-quality third and fourth team depth? It’s at least worthy of a conversation. But, would ultimately, as Sip feared….result in overreaction and high drama. Fun!
