DP & Stephens: Husker Football Schedule

DP and Tom discuss the Huskers traveling to Rutgers week 1 as well as what would be an acceptable record for the season.

The Drive: August 4th, 4:25pm – Minnesota receiver Rashod Bateman is OUT

  • Probably won’t be the last of likely high draft picks to back out of the season. Would you?
  • What does this mean for Minnesota?
  • Shout out Rutgers, who is trying to ruin everything

John Cook says it’s very likely that Husker volleyball moves to the Spring…could football be the only sport played in the Fall?

-The Final Four is scheduled currently to be played in Omaha in mid-December, and that would obviously move that back and just make it a terrible 2020 in general for the city. But, if it moved back to May, you could have back-to-back months of Final Four for volleyball and College World Series…

-Also, Northwestern shuts things down for one COVID case, and Rutgers’ cases nearly double to 28 players and additional coaches, too…yikes.

The Drive: July 6th, 3pm – Uh oh, Rutgers will not be on campus this fall

  • The more time goes on, the more I think we’re looking at a pretty messed up schedule this fall
  • BUT – Athletic decisions will be guided by the Big Ten
  • There will be football. But honestly, will it just be the equivalent of an exhibition

The Recruiting Hour: June 9th

  • Opening Segment
  • Who is the face of the program?
  • Bobby Deren – Rutgers 247 (38:48)

A less than intriguing game this year just got a lot spicier: Noah Vedral transfers to Rutgers

-Vedral will have two years to play at Rutgers as a graduate transfer—the same thing Joe Burrow did when going to LSU—and will obviously be able to play right away. He’s viewed as not the sure-fire QB there, but the likely QB to ultimately be the starter for the Scarlet Knights

-What kind of success can Vedral have? Do you expect him to work out well with Greg Schiano and company? More nervous of that game this season in Piscataway?

Who is going to win the B1G conference in men’s hoops?

-Six teams are within one game of each other for first place (Michigan State, Illinois, Rutgers, Iowa, Penn State, Maryland) in the conference. Tonight is a huge night, with Rutgers vs. Maryland; Ohio State vs. Michigan; and Penn State vs. Michigan State. Will Tom Izzo win the league again or be outdone by an up-and-coming team?
