Big Red Cobcast: Scott Frost Wants Bama

5/22/18 | Ryan Tweedy
For those of you that haven't heard, Scott Frost called out Alabama for claiming titles that don't really count. Which brings the total number of entities ol' Frosty has called out to Bama, Harbaugh, Meyer, the entire Big Ten conference in one fell swoop and, if we go back to '97, the media that didn't recognize Tom Osborne as the…

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…

Big Red Cobcast: Wanna Talk Recruiting?

4/3/18 | Ryan Tweedy
Before we get too carried away with recruiting talk, don't forget to check out this week's podcast! Okay, now we can move forward with some recruiting jibber jabber. I want to to see how everyone feels right now, you know, find the temperature of the room. One of my favorite parts of the podcast is the dialogue we get to…

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,…

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 #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 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: Expectations

2/6/18 | Ryan Tweedy
As Husker fans we have insane expectations. Some might even argue that they are unrealistic expectations. As a self-aware homer my tendency is to disagree, but I think it's important to keep this year's recruiting class in perspective. My heart says, "We get everyone left on our board, rank inside the top 20 and win 2 national championships next year".…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: Episode #195

2/5/18 | Patrick Janssen
There are some people who like the Big Red Cobcast. More than that, though, there are people who LOVE the Big Red Cobcast. But believe it or not, there are also people who don't dig us. Why? They probably fell off their bikes and landed on their heads when they were kids. And because everyone wants to go to a…

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),…

Big Red Cobcast: Loving Scott Frost and Hating the SEC

1/9/18 | Patrick Janssen
I honestly can't tell what the prevailing sentiment is. Are Nebraska fans howling for UCF to be co-national champions because anything tied to Scott Frost feels like it partially belongs to the Huskers? Or are they up in arms because they understand fairness and recognize when it's not being employed properly? Maybe I can't tell because it's a little bit…

Big Red Cobcast: Statistician Paul Dalen Joins Us

12/12/17 | Ryan Tweedy
I think right now there are a few different emotions going through Husker Nation.  One of them is excitement and I think that it's justified. How couldn't you be excited when our fellow Nebraska brethren has come home and he happens to be the hottest coaching commodity since Urban Meyer left Utah. It's easy to get behind someone who is…
