-So….Nebrasketball made 5-star prospect Bryce McGowens’ final 5 teams list…where do they stack up against the rest?

-Delano Banton and Trey McGowens showed up in ESPN’s Newcomer Impact Rankings…which of those is more important to the team this year, in your opinion?

-Adrian Martinez is named the starter by Scott Frost, but how quick will the trigger for Luke McCaffrey be?

Can we make any huge proclamations about Nebraska’s defense after Saturday’s game against Ohio State?

-It’s a defense that has several new starters, and a defense that already wasn’t great last year, which makes fans want to yell at Erik Chinander for all their problems

-However, it’s (potentially) the best team in all of college football that you’re facing this Saturday. They pack a punch on offense, and need to come out blazing for the season to make sure voters keep them up high in the rankings to give them the best shot at a playoff appearance. They may like you for making a season possible, but they’re not going to try and be friends with Nebraska on the field..

Jake is starting to think that his Dolphins might actually be a pretty good team…is he ready for the eventual fallout?

-The Dolphins beat the lowly Jets, 24-0, on Sunday, and now are 3-3 on the year, with 3 wins in dominant fashion, and 3 losses in close fashion to decent-to-good teams. Are the Fins for real?

-Adrian Martinez is indeed the starter for Nebraska’s opener against Ohio State..did you ever think he wouldn’t be?

-How much can we truly assess from Nebraska’s defense with such a brutal opener against an elite team?

-What are your thoughts as a former coach on fake crowd noise in a mostly empty stadium?

Scott Frost has spoken: Adrian Martinez will start for Nebraska against Ohio State on Saturday

-No depth chart was released ahead of Nebraska’s first weekly press conference (via Zoom) of the season, which led people to believe that maybe we wouldn’t know the starting QB until Saturday…

-..but then, Scott Frost said that Adrian Martinez will indeed be the starting QB against the Buckeyes, but feels like they have 2 starting QBs. Might sound good to say that, but it also creates tension..

-Was it always the right choice to have Martinez start against Ohio State? Other takeaways from the Zoom session…
