Trevor Lawrence signed an endorsement deal with Blockfolio…will Sip buy Crypto now?

-Robin is back from some time in Hutchinson, Kansas where he saw Nebrasketball commit Blaise Keita win a national championship…did you see a player that can play at a Big Ten level?

-Isaac Traudt speaks highly of Fred Hoiberg and Nebrasketball…how does this keep from being a Hunter Sallis situation where Nebraska ends up having no chance?

-Nebraska has an offer out to a 2023 7-footer, Jamie Shaw out of Camden High (NJ)…what’s their chances of getting him?

Jake and Sip are curious about how fans plan to consume the Spring Game this weekend

-How many listeners are making plans to attend the game? Or at least be in downtown Lincoln to experience a gameday type atmosphere? And watching on TV?

-And how many others are planning on just catching up on the highlights after it’s over and doing something else with their day? We talk a lot about the Spring, but now is the time for listeners to let us know what their intentions are

Rob Gronkowski set a world record for a catch dropped from the greatest height—600 feet above him

-Gronk accomplished the feat on his 3rd try at an Arizona spring football practice…would Sip or Jake be able to do that without getting hit in the face?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-What is the most important position group to have quality depth at, if there is one? What do you see the deepest on the elite teams?

-Does it amaze you as a former coach at Nebraska that 6-6 would be viewed as welcomed and acceptable season in 2021?

-How much would it bother you to have a ‘bye week’ in your 2nd week of the season?

For the sake of having a good start, how important is it for Nebraska to get a game moved to September 4th?

-It’s been discussed the last few months, and deservedly so. But it’s so important for BOTH sides of the coin: If you beat Illinois in week 1, you don’t want a week off to prepare for your next game against a decent non-conference team.

-If you lose to Illinois, you also don’t want a week off to worry about the optics of possibly going 0-2, and that’s why it’s important to get a game moved to that day against a beatable team…

-Is it going to happen? This is something that seems incredibly important for Nebraska’s season…

It’s not 4/20 without a good pot story, right? How about pot-infused pizza in California!

-Stoney Slice has been operating for 8 months in California—sketchily—and putting 30 mg of THC into their pizzas

-The whole operation is sketchy, but there are some great quotes from the owner of it in a recent LA Times story

-Another addition for Nebrasketball with Keon Edwards…what’s the scoop?

-What’s the percentage chances of either Thor or Shamiel Stevenson coming back? Do they want either back?

-Jake thinks Nebrasketball should go into this year expecting to beat Creighton, who lost all 5 starters. Is he crazy or spot on?

Does the potential success of the receiving corps come down to if Omar Manning is as good as advertised?

-The wide receivers look better and bigger than last year, which brings optimism. We’re optimistic about Samori Toure, Zavier Betts, and Oliver Martin..and possibly Levi Falck and Alante Brown, among others

-But if these WRs are truly to become a great unit that’s reliable, makes tough catches, and gets some separation…does it all come down to Manning to be the true separator of an average unit to a really good unit? And where do the TEs fit in that conversation?

Alex Smith announced yesterday he is retiring from the NFL…his comeback won’t be forgotten

-Smith led the WFT last year to playoffs in his 16th year, and earned Comeback Player of the Year after a terrible leg injury that almost lost him his leg…but he has etched his name in the history books for what he did to come back and be effective….also, Husker volleyball played Texas yesterday..

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-Sip is high on the WRs after seeing practice on Saturday…when do you know if you for sure have a good cast of guys?

-What is the ceiling of a defense that doesn’t have a dominant pass rusher but is pretty good everywhere else?

-How aggressive with a starting QB can you be if your backups are all young and inexperienced?
