Scott Frost says he’d take Adrian Martinez as his QB over anyone in the country…is there any better fit?

7/22/2019
More
-Frost is probably right---Trevor Lawrence and Tua Tagovailoa are excellent QBs, but maybe not the same type of QB as Frost would want in his system here….how weird/good does it feel to probably have THE best option for the position on this team right now?

Do you care anymore about how Nebraska wins games as long as they…win games?

7/22/2019
More
-What is that supposed to mean? Well, we’ve discussed in the past about how if Nebraska was winning a bunch of shootout games, there might be a large portion of the fanbase that would complain about it not being the best football possible, because they want to dominate on both sides of the ball -Aren’t we to a point now where if Nebraska was winning games in the realm of 45-42 and 56-49 that people would just be OK with it and happy to get wins, or would Chinander and company still get...

Pat Fitzgerald says phones are ruining fan attendance and society, in general

7/22/2019
More
-Fitzgerald spoke about it during his side-podium session on Friday at Big Ten Media Days, and he seems pretty correct…but it’s not something that is going to change anytime soon -Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

Adrian Martinez discussed in Thursday what he needs to improve on most this upcoming season…what flaws (if any) do you see in his game?

7/22/2019
More
-When you look at the Heisman-contending QB, what sticks out that’s a glaring weakness? Is there anything that really sticks out at all? He gives his thoughts….what does he need to improve on?

Stopping the run is the name of the game this year for Nebraska’s defense….can they make the strides they need to?

7/22/2019
More
-Scott Frost, Mohamed Barry and Khalil Davis were asked plenty of questions about the defense and how it can improve at Media Days last week…what signs do you see that it can indeed improve? -Is Darrion Daniels’ presence enough to feel like Nebraska can stop the run? What’s a number they need to get to in yards per game allowed to make a move up the ranks?

Final thoughts/takeaways on B1G Media Days and football season almost being back

7/19/2019
More
-These are always a whirlwind of 2 days, but it’s been fun, and there’s still more to go today—just less than we care about -What are you interested in seeing/hearing today? Favorite part of yesterday?

Duration:00:00:01

Scott Frost doesn’t care that Urban Meyer isn’t at Ohio State and he doesn’t want to help give Ryan Day advice

7/19/2019
More

Bill Moos puts a goal on 6 wins for Nebraska football in 2019—are you surprised to hear that?

7/19/2019
More
-Bill Moos seems to be a ‘big thinker,’ so this seems like a small goal for him. Is he saying that to temper down expectations from getting out of control, or is that genuine? -Frost discussed his thoughts on Moos saying 6 wins was the goal, and did say that anything less than that would be a failure because he “doesn’t want to spend another Christmas at home until he retires.” Talk about a big quote. -ESPN’s Bill Connelly’s metrics have Nebraska at 4th best in the West….

Scott Frost apparently listens to The Ticket and has wanted to tell Sipple to ‘Shut Up’ for years

7/19/2019
More
-Coach Frost joined ‘The Drive’ yesterday and at the ending of the interview, he told Happer that he’s jealous of Jake that he gets to say Shut Up Sipple every morning, and thinks he’d refer to Sip as ‘Simple’….it’s beautiful -Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

What’s with this conversation that there should be a change in the divisions in the B1G?

7/19/2019
More
-It’s been a popular conversation at Media Days, and Jake’s not sure why. The West has finally looked like about to be pretty even with the East, so why should there be realignment? -P.J. Fleck talked in the side session that Jake collected audio from, and he has similar thoughts to Jake---the West is stronger now than it’s been, so why is this a discussion now?

Nebraska hit B1G Media Days yesterday, and what a day it was

7/19/2019
More
-Where do we start? We heard from Scott Frost, Bill Moos, Adrian Martinez, Khalil Davis, and Mohamed Barry, with lots of good content to use. How about the story of their plane ride to Chicago? Man…what a horror story -We have audio for days, so let’s here from the Nebraska group, and also

247 Sports lists Wan’Dale Robinson as one of 5 freshmen nationally to watch this year…what will/should he accomplish this year?

7/18/2019
More
-Is there a certain amount of catches he should expect to get? Will he get any rush attempts at all? A player in the punt/kick return game? How do you size up what he should do this year?

Duration:00:00:01

Is it fair to say that anything worse than 8-4 is a “disappointing season” for Nebraska in 2019 or is that unfair following two straight 4-8 seasons?

7/18/2019
More
-Going back to our opening topic, Nebraska is indeed right now the ‘favorite’ to win the B1G West in 2019, even though they went 4-8 last year….how could we view doubling the win total of last year as a disappointment? -Some might view it as that with Martinez at QB and a 7-5 record with your toughest conference games at home…but it still feels strange

Jake’s sad he can’t watch the British Open but it’s still his favorite golf tournament

7/18/2019
More
-The British Open started early this morning---yep, earlier than we are even up doing this show---and Jake can’t watch it because of coverage of B1G Media Days, but he’ll tell you why it’s his favorite golf tournament, even ahead of the Masters -Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

Will we ever see a run of dominance in the Big Ten like we saw with Urban Meyer?

7/18/2019
More
-And if so, could Frost be the one to achieve it as what Tim Brando described as a ‘transformational coach’? -It’s hard to ever have that kind of success anywhere. Meyer was 83-9 at Ohio State, and 54-4 in B1G conference games. Absolutely unheard of. If Nebraska had a stretch like that again, we’d be losing our minds. But can Harbaugh ever get over the hump and be that kind of elite, dominant coach?

We’re at B1G Media Days, baby! Football is almost back—and Nebraska is picked to win the B1G West per Cleveland.com

7/18/2019
More
-2 big days ahead in the sports media world; be ready for content galore from Scott Frost, other Nebraska players, and more. Should be fun. -On the note of fun, we mentioned it at the end of the show yesterday, but we take a deeper dive now; Nebraska barely edges out Iowa as the favorites to win the West in the Cleveland.com “unofficially official” B1G preseason poll -Why the lack of respect for Minnesota? And it seems that most people are split between Iowa and Nebraska as the division...

Parker Gabriel (Lincoln Journal Star) / Shut Up Sipple

7/17/2019
More
-Jahkeem Green posted on Twitter that he was visiting Texas Tech…do you think Nebraska still lands him? -Scott Frost is a confident man, but do you think at all that he might be a little bothered by 6/1 odds to make the College Football Playoff? What the heck is the expectation for the season supposed to be?

What is your top concern this year for Husker football that might prevent them from taking the big leap that many think they’ll take?

7/17/2019
More
-It can’t be just as easy as saying the defense. What part of the defense makes you bite your nails with nervousness? And is that the answer? Or could you say an injury to Adrian Martinez would be the biggest concern? -Certainly could point to the offensive line, too, if Cam Jurgens isn’t healthy and another center isn’t good enough to hold the middle of the line together.
