Husker Doc Talk

2019 Episode 19: Is History Repeating Itself?

October 22, 2019

Wow! Even without a game last week we find ourselves with plenty to talk about. Maurice Washington fills up a lot of our conversation this week as he is no longer practicing with the team and his future with the program is very much in doubt. 

Fans love to remember the 90’s, and with Scott Frost, they are hoping for a return of the good old days. Well, is history starting to repeat itself? In this case, we are not referring to winning, but rather, players who make poor decisions put the program’s reputation in jeopardy and still get second and third chances. 

This approach is a slippery slope for Frost, and the way he deals with Washington is something he can’t take lightly. Dr. Rob Zatechka says it best in this edition of the Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy; coaches hate drama! Washington has provided plenty of it this season, so what’s next? Only time will tell, but Frost indicated that if his sophomore runningback does return to the team, it will not be anytime soon.

So on this episode, we spend some time talking about Washington, Lawrence Phillips, culture, and the balance that coaches have to take when it comes to mentoring student-athletes. 

Oh, and what about Indiana? Nebraska does have a game this week as they take on the Hoosiers. Indiana can score points, but it gives up a lot as well. In addition to the game talk, Dr. Rob and Travis take a lot of listener emails.
