@casualobserver: I know of none. But I understand your point.
@rickylee41: Yes, I have it on. Central Michigan and Tulsa in the Miami Beach Bowl. And I'm not going to poke fun at it at all, understanding how much benefit Nebraska got last December from playing in the Foster Farms Bowl.
@Steve: I think Shawn Eichorst has a lot of excellent qualities as an athletic director. He cares deeply about the student-athletes. But his constant presence on the Husker sideline nowadays is in stark contrast to the (non) support he showed Bo Pelini. Trying to explain it away would be disingenuous on my part.
@HuskGuy: There is media access for Tuesday's practice. That's probably all I can say right now.
@Robin: I apologize for the technical difficulties that have arisen lately. I'm not sure what the problem was/is.
@Wondermonds: I would say he has a lot of challenges. A bowl win and a strong start by Miles' team in the Big Ten would certainly help calm some rough waters.
@Matt: The temperature will soar into the 40s this week. No joke. That cheers me up. It also cheers up my dog, Bullet, who isn't wild about minus temperatures.
@Cubbiesfan: I love that question. It makes sense. I will try to ask Riley and Banker this week. I think Mark Philipp has a bit of a rugby background.
@SiliconValleyHusker: Why did that question elicit a laugh from me?
@Steve: I haven't watched it. I was in Columbus, Ohio, all weekend staying in a hotel that didn't have Showtime. I've heard mixed reviews. One person told me he didn't really learn anything new from watching it. That person did say the story was presented in a balanced fashion, which is good.
@Steve: Hey, Steve, I really appreciate you listening to Jake and I. I haven't asked Shawn Eichorst directly about it. But Shawn bristles when it's suggested he didn't support Bo (in general). I will say this about Shawn: He is a "football guy." I just think, as far as his relationship with Pelini, Eichorst's intentions to fire him were pretty clear from the start. And Bo had a good sense of it -- from the time Eichorst took over as A.D.
@Dick: Trends are just that -- trends. They can swing upward in a hurry.
@Steve: Bernard Goldberg, I think, is the name we're looking for.
@R.C.: I really like the way Ed Morrow is playing, especially if he can push his scoring average into 13 range. I hold out hope that Anton Gill can become more comfortable in his role. Isaiah Roby can be an impact player. But how soon. I like Jordy Tshimanga's potential. Again, how soon can he be a regular impact player? Obviously, Miles feels some urgency right now. It's a difficult situation -- a coach in his fifth year leaning hard on young players.
@rluben: I have watched one practice and I have to admit I came away wondering about the offense -- specifically, were there enough shooters? I think I have my answer. Look at Nebraska's season offensive ratings. Not pretty.
@rickylee41: Let's hear it.
@casualobserver: Devine Ozigbo's reduced role has been a bit of a mystery. He was healthy against Maryland and against Iowa. It's really hard to get a straight answer as to why he isn't seeing the field.
@Wondermonds: I don't like the idea of players sitting out bowl games to get ready for the draft. If the idea is to avoid injury, the player (McCaffery, Fournette) should just say it. On the other hand, no, don't say that because it would sound terrible. Bottom line, I don't like it. Doesn't feel right.
@Cubbiesfan: I would watch closely the news regarding Guy Thomas, a defensive end from Miami, Florida. He's verbally committed to Nebraska, but has never visited Lincoln. But he visited Maryland recently. Seems odd.
