-Sip loves LA! He should go apply. Here’s more reason to apply: A Forbes report informed us that some lifeguards in LA are making as much as $392,000 per year, and dozens of others are making $200K+ per year

-As a lifeguard!!! How do you like THAT, taxpayers?!

-Mike Dawson will handle special teams, per Scott Frost…what do you need to see this year from that unit?

-Which newcomer are you more intrigued by: Samori Toure or Markese Stepp?

-Cam Jurgens told reporters on Monday that snapping issues shouldn’t be a problem anymore…do you buy it or are you wait and see?


Sip hyped up Nebraska’s offense yesterday…can he do the same for the defense?

-Jake pushed back on offensive optimism yesterday, but Sip held his ground. It seems easier to defend the defense with 9 returning starters…where is Sip’s hype level for that unit?

-Where do listeners stand on optimism for the defense?

-Also, Kaden Helms lists his top 10 schools…and Nebraska isn’t in it. The Thomas Fidone effect?

-Scott Frost says Mike Dawson will be in charge of special teams…what is progress for that unit this year?

-Is it possible that Samori Toure is the No. 1 receiver this Fall, or is that on Zavier Betts or someone else? Toure is scheduled to be in the slot…where Wan’Dale got a lot of touches

-What is the expectation for Logan Smothers this spring and fall? Just be a reliable backup or push for playing time?

UCLA continued its historic March Madness run and the Big Ten is toast

-Does Michigan deserve congratulations for making it the furthest of all March Madness teams or do the Wolverines deserve criticism for dropping its Elite 8 game to 11-seed UCLA?

-Listeners call and text in to discuss whether Gonzaga gets the respect it deserves?

-Nebraska will end the month of January having played only 2 games the whole month. What was your favorite moment?

-How long can the B1G stay this good and this deep as a conference? Is it cyclical or not?

-How many games can Nebraska actually make up of all their postponements?

Do you believe in an offense in 2021 that has less QB run than it has in the Frost era?

-Nebraska has averaged 1.91 turnovers per game in the Frost era, most in the B1G West and 2nd in the conference only to Michigan State, and interceptions and fumbles by QBs have been a big reason why

-Do you believe Frost when he says they hope to not have QBs run the ball as much in 2021 or is it “see it to believe it”?

-Keep in mind, the QBs don’t take hits in practices…could be a reason why so many fumbles..

If you weren’t intrigued by the NFL, the QB situation heading into next year is fascinating

-Not only do you have Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields and Zach Wilson going high in the draft, but you also have Matthew Stafford, Deshaun Watson, and (possibly) Aaron Rodgers available…wow..

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-How important is staff continuity, even after a rough season, to help keep building the program?

-Can QB run as an emphasis of an offense be effective or is it bound for problems?

-Signing Day is now mostly done in December compared to February when Kaz was a coach…which would he prefer?

Yesterday’s ‘Snowmageddon’ lived up to it’s expectations…have we forgotten what that feels like for Nebraska football?

-Lincoln usually is below the expectations of any sort of major weather, but yesterday’s snowstorm was even better than advertised..which was a lot

-Last year, we thought that 4-4 was doable for Nebraska football, and even possibly 5-3. Nope. We got 3-5. Another year of underperforming.

-Are our expectations too high or just flat out wrong? Can Nebraska ever perform to proper expectations?
