2019 Episode 2: Medical Marijuana

January 29, 2019

On Friday, January 25, 2019, former Nebraska Football Coach Tom Osborne used his public influence to speak against the legalization of medical marijuana. You can see some of his comments by clicking here

As of right now 33 states and the District of Columbia allow for weed to be used for medical reasons. A handful of other states allow for it on a restricted basis. It should be noted that we just aren't talking about smoking a joint to ease someone's pain and suffering.  Medical marijuana would also include the use of cannabis oil which is used for anxiety, insomnia, joint and muscle pain. Cannabis oil is used by patients that have severe epilepsy. 

Tom Osborne is a doctor, but not a medical professional. On this edition of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy, a real medical Doctor, Rob Zatechka gives his expert opinion on medical marijuana. Is it safe? Is it a gateway drug? Should it be regulated by the FDA? What about the opioid crises in America? These are all questions answered in this podcast. 

Some of you will agree with what is said, some of you will not. We would love to hear your thoughts by emailing us, doctalksports@gmail.com

*Programming note. The music is way too loud at the beginning of this podcast; it gets a lot better after the first 30 seconds.

2019: Episode 1: Where The Hell Have We Been?

January 10, 2019

We have received a lot of emails, tweets, even a call from Dave Rimington himself asking where in the hell have we been? Our last podcast was back in November before the Iowa game and it seems a lot of you like to listen we Travis and Rob drink beer and talk football.

A lot has happened both football wise and personally since the last game of the season. We want to end the rumors now, Travis and Dr. Rob are NOT fighting. Let's be honest, we all know who would win that one anyway.

2018 Episode 14: The First of How Many More Wins?

October 24, 2018

Why did Nebraska finally win a game? It could be that Dr. Rob Zatechka skipped and went to the Florida State vs. Wake Forest game instead. Seriously, that's what he did. On this edition of Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy, we find out why Dr. Rob was on Seminole territory while Nebraska was winning its first game.

Why we are drinking some find Infusion Brewing beer, we also tackle the question, is now the time to play a team like Bethune Cookman or would a week off like initially planned to be better? Also, the win over Minnesota the first of how many? Dr. Rob and Travis tackle that question.

Lots of questions from listeners this week, some think the defense is still way behind, another thinks Adrian Martinez is the best QB Nebraska has ever had.

2018 Episode 13: To Go or Not To Go? Overtime loss at Northwestern

October 14, 2018

To go or not to go? That is the big question following Nebraska's overtime loss to Northwestern last Saturday. On this edition of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy, Dr. Rob Zatechka and Travis Justice carry on their Twitter spat on what play the Huskers should have run on 4th and 1 in overtime. Do you kick the field goal? Or do you put Adrian Martinez under center instead of the shotgun?

On the @DocTalkSports twitter page, a fan poll asked what you would do with hindsight being 20/20.

  • 47% Kick Field Goal
  • 35% QB Under Center
  • 18% QB In The Shotgun

Let's not forget the fact that besides not getting the job done offensively in overtime, the Husker failed on defense as well, letting Northwestern go 99 yards on its last possession in regulation. In short, there's plenty of blame to spread around.

Make sure to get your local craft beer at Infusion Brewing Company. Also, a big thanks to Husker Hounds and Ticket Express for the continued support of the podcast.

2018: Episode 12: The Broken Record

October 9, 2018

The latest Husker Doc Talk podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy is starting to sound a lot like a broken record. Huskers play, Huskers lose. Huskers rack up lots of yards on offense, Huskers make stupid mental mistakes and penalties. The only this that seems to be different from week to week is the beer we drink from Infusion Brewing Company. Oh, and the graham cracker amber ale we have this episode is like breakfast in a bottle!

Yes the losing continues and players continue to defect, but all is not lost according to Dr. Rob Zatechka. He explains the little differences that will begin paying dividends in the future, maybe even this season.

2018 Episode 11: Coaching or Culture Problem?

October 2, 2018

Is discipline, or lack thereof a coaching problem or a culture problem? In this weeks Rimington Trophy Doc Talk podcast, Travis Justice and Dr. Rob Zatechka discuss just that.

Scott Frost has said there is still lingering rot and termites left over from the previous Mike Riley era and he can't build a foundation that's not on solid ground. Know this, the rebuild of Nebraska football might take a little longer than expected.
