-Does this Husker defense seem ahead of ones of the past, or do you still have big questions?

-What is the fix for Nebraska’s second half woes and also their problems in the red zone?

-Northwestern plays Wisconsin this weekend…

If Nebraska’s offense comes to life against Illinois, will you believe it’s been fixed going forward, or that it’s just because it’s Illinois?

-Nebraska has had some great offensive performances against Illinois under Lovie Smith as head coach. They are averaging 48 points per game against the Illini in the Smith era

-So..if Nebraska has a big offensive game and puts up big yards and points…is that because the offense is fixed, or because Illinois’ defense is bad? Surely you wouldn’t expect a huge output against Iowa next week…right? What would show real progress and what would show that their defense was just bad?

-Nebraska is winless no more…how much does that monkey off the back help them to play looser on Saturday and going forward?

-What was your assessment of Luke McCaffrey’s game against Penn State and his outlook ahead?

-Saturday was the first really good special teams performance of the year…can they repeat the success?

Blackshirts have been handed out, but we don’t know to who…are you buying what you’re seeing from the defense and to see it continue?

-Ohio State moved the ball well against Nebraska in game 1, but not to the extent that they had with ease in years past. The defense hasn’t played the toughest offenses since that game, but has also held their own

-Do you believe the defense is fixed to a certain extent to keep Nebraska in every game going forward? Or is there still some to prove? How much does Iowa’s offense scare you for next weekend, if at all?

-More from Erik Chinander/others on Tuesday’s Zoom session…

If Jim Harbaugh leaves/gets fired at Michigan…would Iowa State’s Matt Campbell be their top candidate?

-It happened! Nebraska lands a 5-star in Bryce McGowens…is this a program-changing get, and if so, how?

-Keisei Tominaga has been described as the ‘Japanese Steph Curry’…are you all in???

-Update on status of fans for the Golden Window Tournament and B1G schedule…?

How can Nebraska move the ball through the air if they don’t trust their WRs?

-Zavier Betts technically had 2 catches and a TD against Penn State, although one of the catches was a jet sweep that he ran the rest of the way. Otherwise, you had a dropped TD catch by Kade Warner and not much else going, besides the 5 catches for 11 yards by Wan’Dale

-Is Nebraska an easy offense to prepare for and stop? Can that change or not?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-How much does getting that first win and monkey off the back allow Nebraska in confidence to win moving forward?

-Nebraska has a bend-but-don’t-break defense often..can they consistently make stops in the red zone with that formula?

-What in the hell is wrong with Michigan?

Should Nebraska keep giving Wan’Dale Robinson significant amounts of carries at running back?

-That wasn’t the plan coming into the year, but he had 16 carries on Saturday when Dedrick Mills left with getting hurt early in the game

-Marvin Scott ran hard, but only had 5 carries. We wanted Wan’Dale to get more touches, and he was more effective as a RB than at WR, where he had 5 catches for 11 yards.

-What does RB look like the rest of the year? Is the o-line’s fault or not for lack of consistency?
