  • Travis Fisher

Travis Fisher says his goal is to have the best secondary in the nation while he is at Nebraska…how attainable is that? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Fisher was courted by other jobs this offseason, but he said on Wednesday that he hasn’t reached his goal at Nebraska yet of having the best secondary in the country

-That would be….FANTASTIC..for many reasons—hello, high draft picks! And because, you know, the defense would be pretty damn good. Do you believe it’s possible?

-Also, is anything besides a Gonzaga/Baylor final disappointing when it comes to the games this weekend in the Final 4?

Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 1

-Are you as confident in the defensive secondary as Sip is? Can they lock WRs down?

-Travis Fisher says Nebraska has more capable WRs right now than last year…are you drinking that Kool-Aid?

-Will Nebraska offer Norris TE James Carnie or are they already set at the position and the local players that are coming up in years to come?

Travis Fisher and Ryan Held get pay raises..how vital is it to Nebraska to keep them here long-term?

-Apparently it’s somewhat important, as Fisher got a $125,000 raise, and Held got a $100,000 raise—both coaches had a very solid recruiting period and landed several players. How important is it to retain them for a long time?
