Five Heart Podcast Episode 64: Husker Offense – Frost vs Everyone Else

What happens when you get two guys together at 11:00pm on a Friday night to record themselves talking about Husker football?

NO, THEY DON’T STILL LIVE WITH THEIR PARENTS!

It’s late – this may not be the most coherent write-up. Blame Brian. BT always said to make sure the write-ups had at least 150 words in them so they’d be picked up by Google or something. Otherwise, at 1am, I’d just say:

Here’s the new show. I’m going to bed.

Brian wouldn’t want that. And you deserve better.

Unfortunately, this episode is the Tim Beck offensive game plan of podcasts (no offense, Mister Beck).

Not this Beck.

By that I mean…we have a good football-related conversation for the first portion of the episode, and then, without warning or provocation, we just switch it up to something that doesn’t work as well.

But we do get in some talk about Scott Frost’s offensive philosophy, starting with the quarterback position and then the parts of Frost’s game plan that set him apart from his peers.

We also reference this article on Corn Nation, and a much appreciated shout out from my colleagues who excel with the written word.

Don’t forget that the podcast is on Google Play and PodBean, as well as Apple Podcasts and Stitcher as it has been. David even told me that it’s on an app called OverCast, so check it out there if you use that app. More ways to listen. All for your convenience. All of the other podcasts I mention in the show are all on Apple Podcast and I’m sure the other formats as well. I know they’re on podbean.

That’s it. I’ve got nothing left to say. Goodnight, everybody. Yes, even you, reading this at 8:30am. Don’t judge me. But you can @ me, at the social media links below!

Corn Nation’s Five Heart Podcast Episode 50: Tanner Lee, O-Line, and NFL Playoffs

Well, Husker fans got some news Thursday that may or may not have been expected.

Of course, that’s no longer news to you. But it did mean fodder for the conversation on this week’s episode of the Five Heart Podcast. What are Tanner’s chances of being drafted, and where does that leave the Huskers’ depth chart with Patrick O’Brien and Tristan Gebbia in Lincoln and now Adrian Martinez headed to the Great Cornhusker State.

Also, what can former Husker player and new Offensive Line Coach Greg Austin do to rebuild the much-maligned offensive line, and how will he utilize the players at his disposal to put the best group together?

There’s also some NFL talk as the League approaches the playoffs. And Greg goes on an anti-Patriots diatribe that should make most fans happy (assuming you aren’t a Patriots fan…but how can you be a Patriots fan and also have a soul?).

And at the end, just before signing off…HUSKER WRESTLING MAKES AN APPEARANCE! Is it worth it to stick around for that blurb? Maybe not. But hey…it’s wrestling.

Corn Nation’s Five Heart Podcast Episode 44: Where Do We Go from Here?

I’m going to let Good Ol JR call that one…

Ohio State loss was expected, maybe not to the extent it ended up. But Minnesota? MINNE-FREAKIN’-SOTA???

So this is what it has come to. Nebraska is not good at football in 2017. The signs were there. All the way back to the close win against Arkansas State in Week One. We know change is coming. We know it won’t happen during the season. We don’t know who will be taking over in 2018.

What we do know is that we sure as hell better beat Iowa. But hell, even that match-up depresses me.

I want to stress a few things again:

A. Don’t tweet at the players. Don’t do it. Tweet at me. Tweet at Hoss. Tweet at the Big Red Cobcast folks. And share that info with the angry people on twitter. I like to think that the people who take the time to listen to this show aren’t the same people who tweet at players. Don’t do it.

2. This is the hard lesson for many of us, but remember that there is more to life than college football. We at Corn Nation know that more than anybody.

D (to make you smile). We live on the most boring street in the United States of America where nothing even remotely dangerous will ever happen. Period.

We’ll all stick together…in all kinds of weather.

GO BIG RED and WTDG!

Corn Nation’s Five Heart Podcast Episode 43: Reuter’s March to UCF

When I hear or see “scorched earth,” I immediately think of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman’s “March to the Sea” in the Civil War. But after the overtime loss to Northwestern, it was time for Hoss Reuter to go scorched earth.

The only problem is that after six days, even that was tempered a bit. While Hoss believes the end of the Mike Riley era is nigh, his scorched earth approach was quite mild. I’m no historian, but if Sherman would have marched to Savannah like Hoss railed on the coaching staff, the North may have been turned away in Macon.

That being said, we believe a change is in the air. And after talking about the loss to the Wildcats, we discuss the “rumor and innuendo” that surrounds the Husker football program. And what can be done to get the best in-state athletes to play for Big Red, so that the Noah Fant’s of the world rip apart Ohio State while wearing the Scarlet and Cream?

Also we hit up the Facebook page and talk about the Tunnel Walk and playing for pride, if nothing else.

And stick around to the end to find out how to win a FREE box of food from Hello Fresh! Lots going on this week and we do appreciate you listening and sharing the show with the Husker fans in your life.

Corn Nation’s Five Heart Podcast: All the O-Line Talk

It started with a simply question about the injuries to center Michael Decker and right guard Tanner Farmer. But that led into a 30-minute discussion about the offensive line.

There is only one reason this conversation could have happened. And his name is Hoss Reuter! But we had a great talk about Nebraska’s offensive line philosophy now as well as what it used to be. What approach is working in the conference and what could Nebraska do to improve that aspect of the game?

And then we talk a bit about Tanner Lee’s masterpiece of a fourth quarter at Purdue, leading the good guys to two touchdowns and a one-point win. I believe Hoss called Lee a “virtuoso.”

And Northwestern is in town for a game this week, so hopefully we have more positive to talk about than negative next week.

Just remember GBR and WTDG!

Corn Nation’s Five Heart Podcast Episode 40: Bye Week Banter

7-5? 5-7? 3-9?

Which is best for the Huskers? Which is worst? And where do we fall in those categories? In this week’s episode, Greg and Hoss talk briefly about the game last week, particularly what Hoss saw from inside Memorial Stadium.

And what does the future have in store for Nebraska Football? What does new Athletic Director Bill Moos mean to Mike Riley’s time with the Huskers? And what is reasonable for the remainder of the season?

And we get anecdotal about fires, first responders (we’re big fans, by the way), and enduring Christmas with Iowa fans.

Here are your links – we removed Ty, but it should be noted that he wrote about the Nebraska women’s volleyball team beating Northwestern last night!

Corn Nation’s Five Heart Podcast Episode 38: Beat the Ditch Weasels

It’s a new episode as Hoss Reuter sits across the table (a couple states away) to talk some Nebraska football.

On this episode:

  • The road win at Illinois, and Greg’s super good time.
  • Looking ahead to the Wisconsin Ditch Weasels.
  • Hoss and several other members of the Corn Nation family getting together this week.
  • Chili and cinnamon rolls and why it’s are WRONG (and why it should remind you of Wisconsin running all over Nebraska in 2014)!

  • What’s Hoss’s favorite “unsung hero” offensive scheme?

It’s a big weekend in Lincoln with a look at the past (the 1997 National Championship team being honored) and a glimpse into the possible future with some big-name recruits in attendance.

Corn Nation’s Five Heart Podcast: Welcome Back

Hello again! It’s been far too long since Brian and I got together to talk some Husker athletics. But hey, it’s the day before the first football game of 2017, so this is as good a time as ever to get the proverbial band back together and present you with…INFORMATION YOU PROBABLY ALREADY KNEW BUT ARE LISTENING TO AGAIN ANYWAY IN VERBAL FORM BECAUSE YOU CAN’T GET ENOUGH HUSKER CONTENT!

Not much peripheral chat this time, as we just try to get today’s episode recorded in a timely manner. But while we were recording, Ohio State took a commanding lead against Indiana and went on to win big.

Greg has a new job, which also hinders his ability to stay up late to record, which is another reason why we haven’t done this in three months.

And now here are those dadgum captains we mentioned but failed to go into detail about.
