Early Break: Darin Erstad says he hates everybody he plays against—is that normal or is he just overly intense?

  • Erstad met with media yesterday before the team heads to Iowa for a weekend series, and said that he hated teams when he was playing, and he still hates them now as a coach. Nebraska fans generally ‘hate’ Iowa and Wisconsin in sports, but do they hate anyone else?

Early Break: Rick Barnes might regret how transparent he’s been in the aftermath of him choosing to stay at Tennessee

  • Barnes told reporters Tuesday that if UCLA had been willing to pay his buyout at Tennessee, he’d likely be the coach at UCLA. Why would he admit that? What do his players say in response to hearing that?

Early Break: The amount of people not from Nebraska who are salty about our Spring Game attendance is hilarious

  • Nebraska once again led the nation attendance for the spring game with more than 85,000 in attendance, and when people tweeted out the numbers, many people from other fan bases were quick to point out, “what else is there to do in Nebraska?” Because THAT’S always the jealous fan’s go to line..

Early Break: Baltimore’s Chris Davis set an MLB record for most at bats without a hit…how do you recover from that?

  • Not long ago, Davis was the top home run hitter in the MLB…and now, dating back to last season, he continued into last night’s game with 47 straight hitless at bats, setting a new MLB record for futility. Don’t you just ask for a release at some point? Do Jake and Sip have anything comparable?
