The Drive: June 9th, 5pm – Do any other Nebraska programs have a Spencer Schwellenbach?

  • Sipple wrote in his column spencer’s impact
  • First of all, baseball is a little different because if you have a first-round draft pick on the mound that just affects so much of the game
  • The notable thing about Schwellenbach is that he was the crown jewel of the class

Husker Baseball has taught us this year that winning is still possible in Nebraska and it is damn fun

-Seriously. After years of gut punches in football and basketball, on top of a pandemic, we’ve been a down and sad fanbase, and understandably so

-Look how much fun we’ve had this year…and it CAN be possible in the other sports…is there any chance that Nebraska truly did hit rock bottom and it’s only up from here?

Does it seem weird to anyone that Dominic Raiola has never been on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Sip wrote about it and it’s worth discussing, as Raiola is arguably the second best center in Husker history, a consensus All-American, Rimington Trophy winner, and 2x first team all Big 12

-It might not be an obvious submission, but isn’t it worth considering?

Arkansas’ environment for baseball was loud and intimidating…can Nebraska get that?

-The hog calls were loud and the fans were rambunctious….and it was really cool to see, even though it wasn’t a Husker crowd

-Alcohol was a big factor in it, no doubt…but those were passionate fans. Can we have that here again?

-HOW WAS HE ALLOWED TO PLAY AT ALL IF THEY KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE HIM WITHDRAW?!?
