Welcome, Bill Moos! Now what? That's the question every Husker fan is asking right now.  What happens with Mike Riley? What happens if there is a coaching search. What happens that is any different than what fans have seen over last 10-plus years.

In this week's Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy, Dr. Rob and Travis discuss these questions and much more. One question that is pondered, what exactly do people want out of the Athletic Director? It might be a harder question to answer than you think.

Lots of great Infusion Brewing Company beer is consumed during this podcast.  Also, don't forget to buy your Husker tickets at Ticket Express and buy your Husker gear at Husker Hounds.

Sure Nebraska might be 2-0 in the Big 10, but are the Huskers even relevant in football conversations anymore? It's a tough pill to swallow but has some truth to it.

In this week's Husker Doc Talk Podcast Presented by the Rimington Trophy, Dr. Rob and Travis discuss Nebraska's relevancy and what it takes to be part of the conversation. Here's a hint, it's going to take a lot more than two wins against two bad teams. But hope is not lost.

Is it all Bob Diaco's fault? Of course not but it's easy to point the finger at the Huskers new Defensive Coordinator after the last two weeks.

On this edition of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy Dr. Rob and Travis try and tackle a lot of the major questions, fans have about the first two games. They do this while drinking a new beer from Infusion Brewing Company! Hey, it wouldn't be a podcast with beer now, would it?

While a lot of people are focusing on the defense, Dr. Rob this week spends a lot of time focusing on t Tanner Lee and his mechanics. The doctor's early diagnosis is there are some problems, and these problems should have been fixed a long time ago.

This season is year three of the Mike Riley era, or is it? Sure if you go by the number of seasons but Nebraska if virtually starting over on offense and defense which begs the question, what is this identity of a Mike Riley coached team?

This week Rimington Trophy Husker Doc Talk Podcast did not go as planned. That's a good thing! Some of the best topics come from you, the listener. Each week we ask you to send us questions through Twitter or email. This week we got a great question that started almost a 30-minute conversation.

Before we go into detail, don't forget to get your Husker tickets for home and away games at Ticket Express. For 25-years Ticket Express has given you access to places that tell you they are sold out.

Husker Hounds will dress you in the best Husker gear there is. But it's not just clothes. If you need some Big Red for any part of your life, Husker Hounds has it.

So Dr. Rob and Travis are drinking a Red-X IPA from infusion Brewing in this podcast. A listener asks; what is the current state of the Nebraska Walk-on program? We didn't know it at the time, but this started an almost 30-minute conversation about walk-ons. Here's the question we are asking. Are Husker fans holding on too tight to a tradition that looks a lot different than it did 20 or even 30-years ago? Push play to hear our thoughts.

August 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Dr. Rob Zatechka just might raise some eyebrows in this week's Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy

A big discussion this week is what player Dr. Rob thinks will underachieve this season. If the Dr. is right, well the Nebraska offense might struggle a little or a lot. Now let's be clear, Dr. Rob Hopes that he's wrong!

Dr. Rob also spreads some good news and talks about the one player he thinks will overachieve and be a pleasant surprise this season. Here's a hint, It's an offensive lineman so Rob is showing his bias.

Lots of discussion outside of the predictions as we are now two weeks from the season starting. Make sure to get your tickets at Ticket Express and get decked out in your Husker gear at Husker Hounds.
