2019 Episode 8: Dave Ellis Interview

2019 Episode 8: Dave Ellis Interview

August 5, 2019

What does it take to feed an entire football team and make sure every player has the hydration and the fuel to perform at their very best?
We give you the answer on this edition of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy.

It's all about science! This means Dr. Rob Zatechka is geeking out about the conversation we have with Dave Ellis, the Director of Performance Nutrition at the University of Nebraska. Dave was at Nebraska perfecting his craft (and his meals) when Dr. Rob was a player. A lot has changed over time, and a lot hasn't; we are confident you will find our interview with Dave, both educational and entertaining.

Note: This interview was conducted before fall practice started, so keep that in mind as you listen.

2019 Episode 7: Let The Fun and Games Begin

2019 Episode 7: Let The Fun and Games Begin

July 28, 2019

Finally! It’s back to work, back to practice, back to football in America. College football teams across the country start fall camp this week. This means our time will be consumed analyzing every move by coaches and players from the first team down the scout team walk-ons.

On this episode of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy, Dr. Rob Zatechka, and Travis Justice discuss several topics as the season gets started. 

It used to be that fall camp was a time to impress coaches and earn playing time. Is this still the case? With spring football, summer conditioning, data, analytics, etc.; coaches now have more information than ever on players and what they can and can’t do. But do the numbers always tell the truth? 

Don’t forget, Husker Fan Day is Thursday, August 1st at Memorial Stadium for 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. You can have pay to get Scott Frost’s autograph, and he’s only signing for kids.

Travis turned Dr. Rob on to some fantastic content this week. So amazing newspapers should be worried, very worried.  I’m talking about The Athletic. The website is running a phenomenal series on conference realignment. One of the stories that got the attention of Husker fans was on the “budding” rivalry with Iowa. Of course, this made Travis very, very happy but got under the skin of a lot of Big Red faithful.

Do yourself a favor subscribe to The Athletic!

2019 Episode 5: Pipeline Camp

2019 Episode 5: Pipeline Camp

June 16, 2019

The famed and original "Pipeline" was back at Memorial Stadium for the 2019 Nebraska Pipeline Offensive Line Camp.

Dr. Rob Zatechka was there to work one-on-one with over 300-campers.  He's very limited on what he can say because of NCAA rules; he had to choose between being a coach/instructor or a media member.  Yes, even this podcast is considered media. 

Despite not being able to talk about individual players, Dr. Rob gives excellent insight into what went on at the camp and how the "Pipeline" connected with recruits.... errrr campers.

2019 Episode 4: Husker Draft Blues

2019 Episode 4: Husker Draft Blues

May 5, 2019

Before we start this podcast, we want to point out that May is Mustaches for Kids month. Dr. Rob participates in this event every year as it raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities that focus on kids. This year the fundraising event will benefit Angles Among Us. The organization helps families with their financial support when a child has been diagnosed with cancer. You can help Dr. Rob meet his goal by CLICKING HERE and donating. Thank you in advance for your support.

Dr. Rob and Travis are back with another Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy. Yes, it's been a while, but when real life gets in the way, it's not as easy to get in the studio as you might think.

On this edition, we talk about the NFL Daft and the fact that no Husker player was selected; ending a 56-year streak that dated back to 1962. If you don't like the fact no player was selected this year, Dr. Rob says you better brace for a repeat in 2020 but after that, if all goes to plan a new streak will begin.

How about the spring game? Did Dr. Rob come away impressed with what he saw? Short answer, yes... and no. But keep in mind, it's only a spring game.

Finally, Fred Hoiberg is off to a fast start as the Head Coach of the Nebraska Basketball Team. We don't talk a lot of basketball, but we do tall about the fact we were talking about Fred being the Huskers head coach as far back as December or January.

2019 Episode 2: Medical Marijuana

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?

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. 

We cover a lot of ground over the hour-long discussion on go in a lot of different directions, we hope you enjoy it! 

A big thanks to the Rimington Trophy for presenting the podcast. Thanks to Infusion Brewing Company for great beer. And thanks to Husker Hounds and Ticket Express for being awesome! 

2018 Episode 17: Nebraska at Iowa

2018 Episode 17: Nebraska at Iowa

November 20, 2018

It's the week the Rimington Trophy Doc Talk podcast has been gearing up for all year long. Nebraska at Iowa, the battle for the Heroes Trophy. Okay, the trophy doesn't mean that much, the fact that this game is finally becoming a rivalry does.

For years Dr. Rob and Travis have gone back and forth about these two teams and Travis likes to rub it in that Iowa has won three straight in the series. But are things about to change? Find out as we go on location to Infusion Brewing in Benson to record our latest episode.

Looking for some last minute tickets to the game in Iowa City? Ticket Express has you covered. Chad Carr from Ticket Express stops by to talk, and he tells us the first event he ever sold tickets to was.

Scott from Husker Hounds skipped out on our on-location recording but reminds us that you can get all your Husker holiday shopping done at Husker Hounds.
