everybody and welcome to tonight's edition of "Sports Chat" hosted by yours
truly, Chip Chuckley. As you know, we'll be taking your calls tonight
about Husker football. The Cornhuskers are 2 and oh, are ranked number 18
in both polls and are set to face the Nittany Lions from Penn State this
Saturday night in Lincoln. We want to hear what you
think about the Huskers at this point in the season. Call us tofu, I
mean, toll free at 1-800-SPORTSCHAT. Let's go to our first caller, BJ,
from Omaha. Welcome to "Sports Chat".
Am I on?
C: I'm a kirst
time faller, er. I mean, I'm a first time caller, but a long time
listener...You know what I mean. I'm a little
C: I just
wanted to ask you, do you think Joe Dailey will start this week against Penn
State? I'll hang up and listen to your answer.
CC: Thanks for
your call. No, I don't think Joe will be the starter this
Saturday. But Joe Dailey is the Husker QB of the future. I
realize that Dailey came in in the 3rd quarter when the Aggies were pretty much
beat up, but Joe did show a great deal of poise when he did
play. He runs great, has a quick release and is a very accurate
thrower. I think Joe will see playing time this Saturday-maybe in the 2nd
quarter, depending on how the game is going. If Dailey continues to master
the offense that has taken Jammal almost 5 years to grasp, you'll see him
starting. I think it'll happen sooner than later. Let's go to our
next caller, Gary from Los del Frappe, California. You're on "Sports
C: Am I
C: Dude, I
agree with you on this one. I think he'll get the nod at the Missouri
game. What do you think?
CC: I think
it'll happen sooner than that. Troy State may be the best game for his
debut as the starter.
CC: It's a
home game. It's a game the Huskers should win. Starting him in
a hostile environment on the road at Missouri might not be the best thing
for a true freshman quarterback. My guess is Troy State. Let's go to
Dave from Longmont,Colorado on a cell phone. Dave, you're on "Sports
C: I really
like your show, Chip, you tell it like it is. My question is, and I
realize this may be too early to think about it, but who do you think will
replace Frank Solich when it's time for him to go? Do you think someone
out of the program like Sonny Lubick at Colorado State? Who do you
CC: You ask a
good question, Dave. If the Huskers do well this year and the next few
years, it would be hard to get rid of a coach who is winning a lot of
games. And no, I don't think Sonny Lubick would be an attractive
replacement. Let's go to Perry in Broken Axle, Oklahoma.
Welcome to "Sports Chat".
C: Chipper-roo, thanks for taking my call, man. Hey,
I got another question for you to think about. I know it's early, but the
Huskers defense is ranked #1 in the Big 12, and about #14 in the country, or
something like that. Yeah, I know, we haven't exactly played Miami and
Ohio State, but, let's say that Bo's stock continues to rise over the next
couple of years. You know what I mean, the Husker program turns around,
especially on defense. People across the country who have written off the
Huskers earlier will suddenly take notice that the Huskers are
back on track.
CC: So what's
C: I'm gettin'
there. So what will happen to Bo Pelini's stock once
everybody hears about his defensive genius? I know it's early,
but we all know Bo's wants to one day be a head coach in D-I,
CC: I guess
C: Well, there
will be schools with big bank rolls looking for just such a coach, right?
CC: I would
C: So what's
Steve Pederson gonna do? Will he stay with a 60 year old coach in the
twilight of his career and more importantly, will he want to be known
as the one who passed on Bo Pelini as a head coach?
question. And a tough one. How do you see this thing playing
C: The way I
see it, Stevie ain't no dummy. He's a football guy. And,he's a tough
businessman. Shoot, he even fired Johnny Majors at Pittsburgh-the
same Johnny Majors who gave Steve Pederson his start at Tennessee. There's
no way Pederson would pass on the deal. No frickin' way. Pelini will
be the next head coach at Nebraska, mark my word.
CC: So what do
you do with Frank Solich?
C: Chip, you
do what anybody would do. To use the words of Don Corleone, you make him
an offer he can't refuse. Frank gets a fund-raising gig and Solich
makes up some cockamamie story about wanting to spend more time with his
grandkids or something like that. Like I said, that's the way I see
CC: Good take,
Dave. Thanks for calling. We have time for one more call. We
go to Arnold in Hollywood, California. How are you
CC: Are you by
any chance running for governor in California?
betchyer booties, I am!
CC: This is
none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger!!! It's great to have you on
our show, Mr. Schwarzenegger.
C: Chust call
Great. I think I read something on Huskerpedia recently that said you
are a Husker fan. How did that happen?
