Big Red Cobcast Preview #239: Nebraska is for Huskers

12/10/18 | Patrick Janssen
There are a bunch of ways to watch Nebraska win. Beating Michigan State in the snow. Snaring Wandale Robinson away from Kentucky. Cheering the Huskers' volleyball team into the Final Four. Watching Isaac Copeland slam home the final touches of a cathartic win over Creighton. All of it is great, and none of it is on an à la carte…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #238: Let’s Get to Recruitin’!

12/3/18 | Patrick Janssen
Now that the season is over, we're left to figure out some new things to do with ourselves. Those include watching Nebrasketball, watching other teams play college football, telling the Canale brothers that no one likes them and they should never be on the podcast again, and most importantly, following recruiting. For it seeming like a dead time of year,…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Memorial Day & Football Season

5/28/18 | Patrick Janssen
Beer. Grilled meats. Joking with friends and family. Backyard games that involve throwing beanbags. That sounds like two things, Memorial Day and football season. Enjoy the first one today while realizing the second one is around the corner. Until the latter arrives, hang out with us for a little bit. The latest Big Red Cobcast will be up on HuskerMax…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Bring On Breon!

5/14/18 | Patrick Janssen
In life, some weeks just flat out suck. And then there are the weeks you find out Breon Dixon will be allowed to play this fall and you realize heaven’s existence is immaterial because it’s already a time and place on Earth! That’s pretty much where Tweedy and I are this week. We also discuss the state of Husker football…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Reunited And It Feels So Good

5/7/18 | Patrick Janssen
Some things go away, and when they do they stay gone forever (like the logo used in this article was supposed to be). Other things are merely gone for a moment in time, only to be rightly reunited. Like Scott Frost and Nebraska. Or Tweedy’s and my disconcertingly close relationship. OR THESE BIG RED COBCAST PREVIEW ARTICLES. After being separated…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #205

4/16/18 | Patrick Janssen
Tweedy & I are Nebraska natives. We've had our share of Runzas. We've soaked up cheap beer with Valentino's on a Saturday morning. And most importantly, we know how to drive in the damn snow. But that doesn't mean we always want to (drive in the snow; I'll eat post-drunk Runzas and Valentino's slices all day every day). But sometimes…

New Husker hoops signee

4/11/18 | HuskerMax
Nebraska Men’s Basketball Coach Tim Miles announced Wednesday that Karrington Davis (St. Louis, Mo.) has signed a National Letter-of-Intent to play basketball for the Huskers beginning next season. Davis, a 6-foot-5, 185-pound guard, comes to Nebraska after spending his senior year at national power Montverde Academy (Fla.) playing for Coach Kevin Boyle. The team went 35-0 and won the Geico High School…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #203

4/2/18 | Patrick Janssen
What does a Husker fan do when there are no games to be played? (No, I'm not including the pitching meltdown that happened in Columbus, Ohio this weekend.) We talk recruiting and who might be fired and when. And oh did we do that on this week's episode of the Big Red Cobcast. It was Junior Day weekend in Lincoln,…

Palmer and Copeland to Test NBA Draft Process

3/27/18 | HuskerMax
Nebraska basketball guard James Palmer Jr. and forward Isaac Copeland Jr. have announced their intentions to declare for the 2018 NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent, maintaining their college eligibility. Both Palmer and Copeland will put their names into the NBA Draft, making them eligible to be selected in the NBA Draft on June 21. Both players can start…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #202

3/26/18 | Patrick Janssen
I was hoping we wouldn't have to be having one of these types of conversations again this soon. But here we are. A couple weeks removed from Nebrasketball season (and just a few months from a football hiring process), the humming noise surrounding Tim Miles' job status seems to be getting louder. So we addressed that this week, on both…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #201

3/19/18 | Patrick Janssen
There are a few things happening in Big Red Cobcast-land this week. First, we're doing something a little different on this week's podcast. For those who have been donating to our Patreon (as well as those who start donating to our Patreon), there will be bonus episodes each month. What will those bonus episodes be like? They'll be like this…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #200

3/12/18 | Patrick Janssen
There are two things you should know about the Big Red Cobcast this week. 1.) It (and our Facebook Live that you can see down below) was recorded on Saturday. 2.) I was out of town. So if you're expecting livid rants about Nebrasketball getting royally jobbed, this will not be the place. You'll have to go to our Twitter…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #199

3/5/18 | Patrick Janssen
It was a weekend of mourning for Nebrasketball. But there's no time for crying. So instead, we argued about a bunch of things related to Husker Hoops. Among the questions we asked: How much is the Big Ten to blame for Nebraska's unlikelihood to make the NCAA Tournament? Does an NIT berth have any bearing on Tim Miles' job status?…

Big Red Cobcast: Jumping is cool

2/27/18 | Ryan Tweedy
  I'll admit that my knowledge of Nebrasketball is limited. I really only go back as far as Tim Miles. I guess I did get Eric Piatkowski's autograph when I was young but I don't remember much of that game. So my only true memories start around the Tim Miles hire. I've watched more college hoops in the last 5…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #198

2/26/18 | Patrick Janssen
Guys, things got testy at Big Red Cobcast headquarters this week. Both on our Facebook Live (which you can watch just a few paragraphs down from here) and on the podcast (which you can hear tomorrow on HuskerMax or right now by checking us out on iTunes). We're all shells of ourselves right now. Tweedy hurt his back. I'm sick.…

Big Red Cobcast: Jack McVeigh Interview

2/20/18 | Ryan Tweedy
What Did We Talk About? Jack McTrey. The Pinnacle Bank Bomber. Nicest guy in the Bench Mob. Slow to the "Macarena" but fast to row the boat. Jack McVeigh is an integral  part of the Nebraska Cornhuskers Men's Basketball Team. And... he's a hell of a nice guy. Pat and I had a great time talking to Jack about everything…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #196

2/12/18 | Patrick Janssen
Nebrasketball, racism (or rather criticism against it), fawning over Scott Frost's first Husker recruiting class, jokes in poor taste, more stalker-y phone calls directed toward me. It's all on the table this week. We're the Big Red Cobcast. You can't keep us caged up in a tiny little box. We're basically like the Scott Frost of podcasts. Everyone thought he…

Big Red Cobcast: #MakeTweedyPuke

1/30/18 | Ryan Tweedy
Hey guys, Tweedy here.  You probably don't know who I am. I'm one of the co hosts of The Big Red Cobcast. I love our podcast. I love making it, I love being a part of it,  and I love getting to interview many of childhood heros like Charlie McBride, Milt Tenopir, Grant Wistrom, Christian Peter and and Chad Kelsay…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #194

1/29/18 | Patrick Janssen
Well, this was a cheery week. All sorts of fun topics like Michigan State and how we as Husker fans should view that whole nasty situation. Also, we talk Husker football winter conditioning. Is Zach Duval going to murder a Husker with his workload, and can he possibly do the same to Tweedy? PLEEEEAASE? Seriously, we're trying to get everyone…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #193

1/22/18 | Patrick Janssen
Guys, things are getting chippy in Cobcast land. We're tired of no football. We're tired of each other's coffee breath. It's time for April to get here. But that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to talk about this week. And talk about it we do! On this list of this week's topics are CTE (and the possible salvation of football),…

Huskers blow out Michigan

1/18/18 | HuskerMax
Nebraska shot 55 percent Thursday night and treated a raucous home crowd to a 72-52 rout of No. 23 Michigan. It was the Huskers' first win over the Wolverines since 1964. Michigan entered the game with an 8-0 record against Nebraska in Big Ten play. James Palmer Jr. scored 19 points to lead the way for the Huskers, who had…
