Well, it has been a busy week. Not much good news emanating from One Memorial Drive. After Nebraska’s shocking loss to Northern Illinois, we were able to put a “former” in front of “Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst.”
So…it’s been a busy week.
In this episode, Greg is joined by Hoss Reuter as the two discuss the early-season woes of the Big Red. The loss to the Huskies hurt, and there is significant offensive line talk. We talk about what else went wrong last week and where the program may be headed.

The Huskers are undefeated…after one game. And it was closer than we’d like. Brian and Greg saw some things we liked in last week’s game. Like the kick return for a touchdown, the improved play from the quarterback position, the myriad of Nebraska receivers, and a young man by the name of Tre Bryant.
We saw some things we didn’t like. For example…the muffed punt returned for a touchdown, and…the defense that bent but didn’t break when it counted the most.
And then there’s the trip to the West Coast where an estimated 25,000-30,000 Husker fans are preparing to descend upon Eugene’s Autzen Stadium, where the Huskers will take on the Oregon Ducks.
Two words…Tommy Armstrong. That kid (he probably qualifies as an adult by now) battled through cramps and dehydration to will the Huskers to victory. It certainly wasn’t the Tommy Armstrong Show, as he had plenty of help from a Terrell Newby and Devine Ozigbo, his reliable receiving corps, and an offensive line that has grown leaps and bounds.
The defense played great against the team speed of Oregon, and this guy had a couple solid plays, one that really contributed to his growing legend.
Listen in as Brian and Greg talk about the Oregon game, look forward to the game at the Wildcat Jungle in Evanston, and and touch on a few other topics in the newest Five Heart Podcast, available on iTunes.
We are back! The censors did not take Brian or myself off the air, so we decided to come back for another round.
Brian and I talk about what we saw in the Fresno game, as well as some recruiting thoughts I coaxed out of the jolly old man himself, as well as the touching tribute to Sam Foltz.
I talked about #runtheballguy and I think, just think, that Brian got a little terse about it. Finally, we discuss the upcoming Wyoming tilt tomorrow and talk about the visit from the Oregon Ducks next week.
We appreciate each one of you as we get this podcast going.
