Big Red Cobcast Preview #236: Hope and Hate (or Hate and Hope?)

11/19/18 | Patrick Janssen
Despite one of my more favorite Husker victories in recent memory, Nebraska was officially eliminated from bowl contention late Saturday night. BYU's thumping of New Mexico State was the final nail in the coffin for the Huskers' postseason hopes. But not for their long-term hopes. Things are about to get good in our neck of the woods. REEEAL GOOD. So…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #235: Cautious Optimism

11/12/18 | Patrick Janssen
This team is going to compete every week. I have no doubt of that. It's the first time I've felt confident enough to make that statement about Husker football since Eric Crouch was forced to play catch-up against Colorado for 60 minutes in 2001. This team is going to compete. But with the rocky start to the season (which in…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #233: A Storm’s a Brewin’!

10/29/18 | Patrick Janssen
Wasn't this supposed to be the uneventful weekend? First, it was supposed to be a bye weekend. Then it was turned into an almost-bye weekend with Bethune-Cookman. And the pressure of nabbing Scott Frost's first win was already removed. But here we are celebrating what turned out to be quite the eventful weekend. Yeah, sure, Nebraska won and made it…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #232: VICTORY!

10/22/18 | Patrick Janssen
It's time for a new streak. One of a different stripe. 10-game losing streaks are fun and all (I'm lying), but six-game winning streaks to go to a bowl game? That's where the party's at. Maybe I'm putting the cart ahead of the horse. You'll have to forgive me. It's been a while. I'm bathing in the glory of a…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #231: And So It Continues

10/15/18 | Patrick Janssen
Ten in a row. Loss after loss after loss after loss after loss after loss after loss after loss after loss after loss. That's what Husker football looks like right now. That's not a Scott Frost thing. That's not a Mike Riley thing. That's a Nebraska thing. This has unfortunately become our culture. There are times it feels like it's…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #230: Turning Point?

10/8/18 | Patrick Janssen
Nobody wants to hear about moral victories and turning points. The only victories and momentum shifts will come from actual wins is the common maxim. But let me tell you: Saturday felt like a victory for self-esteem and a changing of a emotional tide. The true test of how much of one it was will come Saturday in Evanston, Ill.…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #229: Pur-d’oh

10/1/18 | Patrick Janssen
This is going to be quick. Why? Because I'm the guy who wasn't a part of this week's podcast. Because I'm in Nebraska trying to hang out with family before flying back to California. Because we lost to friggin' Purdue again. In spite of all that, I had fun at this weekend's game (first time sitting next to my dad…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #228: Buy In

9/24/18 | Patrick Janssen
It's time for all of you to buy in. Buy in to the Scott Frost Era. Buy in to the long-term plan. Buy in to knowing this year is probably going to be a slog. Sure, all of that. But most importantly, buy in to watching these videos every Monday. They've become therapy for us after the games. Maybe they…

Big Red Cobcast Ep. 227: What Now?

9/18/18 | Patrick Janssen
I've had two conflicting pieces of wisdom kicking around in my brain since the weekend. Back in the mid 90s, after I grounded out to lose a baseball championship game in junior high, my dad told me that I'd learn more from that defeat than I would have if I had hit a game-winning double. Years later, I broadcasted games…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #227: I Guess We Have to Hate Troy Now

9/17/18 | Patrick Janssen
Well, the Scott Frost era isn't off to the start we thought it would be. Adrian Martinez is hurt. Andrew Bunch is like Matt Turman but without Lawrence Phillips, Aaron Graham and Rob Zatechka. And we've lost to friggin' Colorado and Troy. But Colorado and Iowa (and other non-championship team) fans should relish this while they can because this is…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #226: Moving On

9/10/18 | Patrick Janssen
I hate Colorado. For so many reasons. I don't care if it affects our status as "college football's greatest fans." They deserve every bit of hate. They would've deserved all the hate, even if they hadn't stolen a victory that Scott Frost & the Huskers rightfully earned. They would've deserved the hate if they hadn't tried to blatantly hurt Adrian…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #225: Still Game Week

9/4/18 | Patrick Janssen
Talk about a hangover. We were all drunk on the emotions of Nebraska football, only to wake up with a hangover that included no football. I might be mixing metaphors just a bit because the Cobcast crew had to find a way to cope with Saturday's game being cancelled, and that included actually getting drunk. So that's why everything is…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #224: Game Week

8/27/18 | Patrick Janssen
Game. Week. And there it is, everybody. It's no longer a question of how many weeks until the Frost Era begins at Nebraska. It's matter of days. And soon, it will be a matter of hours, minutes and eventually seconds. Tweedy and I got into a whole bunch of things in this week's podcast, including surprises on the depth chart,…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #223: Balloons, Marching Bands and LED Lights! Oh My!

8/20/18 | Patrick Janssen
Here are the reasons I know we need Husker football in our lives STAT: 1.) Husker fans talking about balloons. 2.) Husker fans are talking about lights. 3.) Husker fans are LOSING THEIR FREAKING MINDS RIGHT NOW. Numbers 1 and 2 probably fold into number 3. And we're not immune from these woes. But we did our damnedest to talk…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #222: 19 DAYS TILL HUSKER FOOTBALL SEASON

8/13/18 | Patrick Janssen
Nineteen days. Let me spell that out for you. N-I-N-E-T-E-E-N (space) D-A-Y-S (space) U-N-T-I-L (space) H-U-S-K-E-R (space) F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L (space) I-S (space) B-A-C-K-EXCLAMATION POINT. That excitement comes through in both our latest podcast episode, which is available on iTunes right now and on HuskerMax tomorrow morning, as well as in our weekly Facebook Live, which is available just below this paragraph…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #221: Calm Before the Storm

8/6/18 | Patrick Janssen
There are tons of things to address and only so much space to address them in these preview articles. So here goes: 1.) FALL CAMP HAS STARTED!!!!!! 2.) I'm back. And apparently that means these Cobcast preview articles are, too? I guess the Cobcast empire falls into disarray when I'm out of the country. So you're welcome? 3.) FALL CAMP…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #217: Vitamin S and Love/Hate Mail

7/9/18 | Patrick Janssen
People tend to view Tweedy as the reactionary member of the Cobcast bunch. But I think that's a misrepresentation. A more accurate take is that we let Tweedy rant about whatever he wants to rant about, and then Joe and I react to that wildness. And since there was no Joe this week, I had to do a lot of…

Big Red Cobcast Preview #216: Pumpin’ Iron with Scott Frost

7/2/18 | Patrick Janssen
Pumping iron. That's what this Husker team has been doing, and it's apparently what Scott Frost has been doing. Zach Duval confirmed it for us on Twitter this week. It's also what 2/3 of the Big Red Cobcast crew has been doing. So naturally, we talked a lot about lifting weights this week, both on our Facebook Live and on…

Big Red Cobcast Preview: SURPRISE!

6/18/18 | Patrick Janssen
This past week was one of surprises. A surprise commitment, a surprise change in NCAA regulations AND a surprise return of our weekly preview articles & Facebook Live chats. Yeah, that's right. We're doing our jobs in their entirety. So that means we're kind of like Scott Frost and Co. now, right? So since we've done our jobs, why don't…

Video: Hiking the Grand Canyon with Scott Frost

6/14/18 | HuskerMax
Marty Smith hiked more than 20 miles of the Grand Canyon with Nebraska's new football coach Scott Frost as part of a special edition of Marty Smith's America that airs June 14 at 8 p.m. EDT on ESPN. "We get so busy with football," Frost says as he sits beside the Colorado River halfway through the hike but with the…

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…

Scott Frost on UCF title claim and more

5/10/18 | HuskerMax
In an interview Thursday with Orlando sports columnist Mike Bianchi, Nebraska coach Scott Frost clarified his recent comments about Central Florida's 2017 national championship claim. He touched on other subjects as well, including his support for an eight-team playoff and life as a new father. Full audio and coverage links below.     • Omaha World-Herald* | Scott Frost stands…

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 #206

4/23/18 | Patrick Janssen
This week’s Big Red Cobcast is a little different. Tweedy went to the spring game, while I was stuck in the California weather with non-Runza hamburgers and non-Valentino’s pizza. So Tweedy spent the weekend catching up with old Lincoln buddies and talking about the true beginning of the Frost Era. Because of that, we didn’t have our usual Facebook Live…

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 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.

They'll be like this…

2018 pre-spring presser: Scott Frost transcript

3/14/18 | HuskerMax
Nebraska Football Pre-Spring Press Conference Wednesday, March 14, 2018 Memorial Stadium (Lincoln, Neb.) On how the team has adjusted to the new workout plan: “Players have adjusted well. We’ve gotten a lot of buy-in from the players, a lot of effort out of the player and I see a lot of excitement. They’ve adjusted to workouts really well and we’ve…

Pre-spring presser

3/14/18 | HuskerMax
Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost met with the media Wednesday to preview spring practice, which starts with a single session Friday and then resumes after a week of spring break. Injuries will keep defensive back Jojo Domann and linebacker Luke Gifford out of spring drills, while center Michael Decker's status is doubtful. Running back Tre Bryant, linebacker Sedrick King,…

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…

Pernell: Frost the complete package for Nebraska

3/9/18 | Jeremy Pernell
During the last 20 years, Nebraska has explored just about every avenue when hiring a football coach. Legendary coach Tom Osborne won his third National Championship in a four-year span, following the Huskers' 42-17 dismantling of Peyton Manning-led Tennessee in the 1998 Orange Bowl. Osborne rode off into the sunset and Nebraska football for all intents and purposes has never…

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 #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 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…

Scott Frost 2018 signing day press conference transcript

2/7/18 | HuskerMax
On the February signees: “There wasn’t as much drama this year as in most years in the past because of the early signing day. There weren’t as many kids out there, there weren’t as many spots in schools. So it was a little less drama than a normal signing day. But there were still some kids that we were waiting…

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 #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),…

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…

Frost’s perfect finish

1/1/18 | HuskerMax
It was a perfect ending to an undefeated season as Scott Frost's Central Florida Knights upset Auburn in the 2018 Peach Bowl, 34-27. An interception in the end zone in the final minute capped the victory as Auburn was threatening to score on a last-gasp drive. Frost now takes over full time as head football coach at Nebraska after a…

On general impressions of the signing class “I think we have good pieces on the team in Lincoln. And I think they had more talent on the team last season than the record indicates. We’re excited to get to work with the guys that are already on campus in Lincoln, but adding talent certainly helps. A lot of these kids…

Stryker: Frost era sweeps in with promise of unity, toughness, focus

12/3/17 | Tad Stryker
One dark December day, 60-year-old Tom Osborne called a press conference that nobody saw coming. It set into motion a chain of events that reduced Nebraska football to mediocrity.    Almost 20 years later, another press conference that almost the entire state of Nebraska eagerly anticipated sent chills up the spines of most who attended, and signaled a reversal of…

Stryker: With Riley out, Bill Moos Party seeks unifying candidate

11/26/17 | Tad Stryker
There’s too much political discord in the nation. I’m speaking of Husker Nation, of course, where pro- and anti-Pelini and pro- and anti-Riley factions have been at each other’s throats for a decade. The discord is largely the result of poor decisions made at a high level, resulting in a proud football program underperforming since 2001. This binary, two-party bickering…

Pernell: Coaches Worth Vetting

11/22/17 | Jeremy Pernell
  We are only a few days away from the end of the Mike Riley era at Nebraska. I think the majority of fans liked Riley. He embraced the history, expectations and traditions of this program in a way Bill Callahan and Bo Pelini never did. He was genuinely grateful for the opportunity to coach at Nebraska. He was open…
