    Five Heart Podcast Episode 234: OU/Texas, Big Ten Media Days

    Play Episode Listen Later Jul 24, 2021 51:30

    This is a brand new Five Heart Podcast, with Jon Johnston and Todd Wolverton. There was plenty of scuttlebutt this week as Texas and Oklahoma announced their intentions to leave the conference they love to go to “greener pastures.” And in this case, it's all about the money. I mean, it was a decade ago for Nebraska, too, but we also hate Texas. It's odd to me that two teams that hate each other as much as they do would be in cahoots to abandon the Big XII together, hand in hand, skipping on down to the SEC. Also, it was Big Ten Media Days. And things were said. That's about it. And from the feedback we saw on social media this week, you all are tired of hearing talk and are anxious to see improvement on the field (we are too, but we're contractually obligated to cover B10 Media Days). Meanwhile, hang in there. We're getting closer every day. GBR Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

    Todd and I get together for another episode of the Five Heart Podcast! It's a grand old time as we discuss the latest monumental hire of Rob Childress as director of player development for the Nebraska baseball program. Then there's this other hire that happened this week as Trev Alberts is Nebraska's athletic director. Neither Todd nor I are that impressed with this hire. We discuss that. KEEP IN MIND - that just because neither of us are really positive on this hire that we want Mr. Alberts to fail. I speak for myself when I say that I hope he's incredibly successful to the point that my questioning of this hire is ridiculed for ages to come. We also wonder if Nebraska's media has asked Mr. Alberts about his dismissal of the UNO Wrestling program and given him a chance to clear the air. Enjoy the podcast! Give us some feedback!

    It's been a couple months since the last episode of The Counter Bootleg Podcast. In the 12th episode I quickly discuss who I wanted as Athletic Director. Spoiler alert - Trev Alberts was not my first pick. Then I went over my initial reaction to the news that Trev Alberts would be the new athletic director at Nebraska. As I say in the podcast my immediate reaction was, “OH, COME ON!.” After several hours of thinking about the hire the excitement dissipated and I reevaluated my initial reactions. If you listen to the podcast I bet you will find that you probably also had a lot of the same thoughts one way or the other. I still don't know where I land on the decision but regardless he's the one they picked and now all I can do is hope he is successful. Please give it a listen!

    Jon's Postlife Crisis: Stephen Stokols, CEO Of Boost Mobile Talks NIL

    Play Episode Listen Later Jul 1, 2021 12:06

    Name, Image, and Likeness - NIL - goes into effect TODAY. This is one of the biggest developments in college athletics, EVER. CAPITAL LETTERS EVERYWHERE! I got the chance to interview Boost Mobile's CEO Stephen Stokols about NIL. Boost Mobile is sponsoring Hanna and Haley Cavinder, twin guards on the Fresno State women's basketball team. The Cavinder twins have one of the biggest social media followings of any current NCAA athletes as between them, they have over 5 million total followers across Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and TikTok.  NIL will be interesting because it may benefit small business more than it will massive companies like Verizon, Nike, etc. College athletics is very regional in nature. A local bakery shop could get more mileage out of sponsoring a local college basketball player because that player wouldn't even show up on a large company's radar. We talk about some of these issues in the interview. Mr. Stokols talks very fast. There is a LOT going on, and there will be an explosion of announcements about this over the next few days. One point of confusion. We kind of go back and forth about today or tomorrow. I say “Today” because the content wouldn't be released until Thursday.

    Many of you likely remember former Nebraska Cornhuskers beat writer Christopher Heady from his days with the Omaha World Herald. The secret Kansan spy spent a number of years following the inside action at the Hendrix Training Complex and Pinnacle Bank Arena during the end of the Tim Miles era and start of the Fred Hoiberg era. That unique perspective gave him an interesting look at how two very different coaching era were in Lincoln. Luckily for our listeners, Chris was generous enough to give us his time and talk about some of the contrasts between the coaching regimes and the overall picture of where basketball stands in his mind among the Husker fanbase. Did the athletic administration care about basketball before Hoiberg? Did fans? Do facilities actually matter? What about after Hoiberg's hire? How significant was the hiring by Nebraska in contrast to previous hires or even at other Power Six programs? How much did support from the athletic administration change overnight? What went wrong in the first two seasons and where are things heading from here? Also, is Ohio State a “basketball school”? What about Michigan? If you haven't gotten the picture by now, this was an all encompassing episode and listeners won't want to miss a second of it!

If you think we should stick to sports, sorry, not sorry. Todd reveals that an athlete he coached was inducted into the Iowa Hall of Fame recently. That is pretty cool.

But he took a little time to talk with me about some of the mental obstacles that have plagued the Huskers in the last, say...20 years. That's right, 20. November 23, 2001, to be exact. The date that, according to Hoss, stripped away any and all mystique around the Husker football program. Since then, Hoss claims, the Huskers have had a self-efficacy deficit. What does that mean? We find out. And we learn about proximal goals ("aim small, miss small"), and two words that Hoss has been harping on for so long that we almost put it on a t-shirt...incremental improvement.

Jon goes on a rant (shocking!) about how the NCAA is a giant money-laundering scheme. Jason Peter and Jay Foreman are involved in Husker practices. Is this a good thing? What possible purpose could they serve? This leads to a long discussion of discipline. Nebraska has had a discipline issue for a very long time. How will this get fixed? Is discipline a matter of experience? (Note that over the past couple years, transfers have been captains, rather than guys who have been around for years.)  Nate brings up the phrase, “GET OLD, STAY OLD” at which Jon takes personal offense.

Conley’s book is interesting; it’s rare we get a story about a guy playing sports that isn’t a “glory story”, i.e., them or others talking about how great they are, what obstacles they had to overcome while nothing bad happens along the way unless it’s glossed over so as to not make you feel too bad. Conley is pretty honest about his goals, dreams, his failures and what they do to him. It’s even more rare we get a story from a kicker. Nobody cares about kickers until they miss or they don’t have one, but rarely do we get an idea of what they go through. Sean and I discuss: His book (duh) The injury that ended his career, how it came from overuse, and why this is important for young athletes to understand. What it’s like to try to make a NFL team. Why I should feel sorry for a guy who’s been dumped from or is retiring from the NFL. Yoga. And men. Resilience. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    It’s time for a new Five Heart Podcast. And this week, Greg, Jon, and Todd are all over the place, talking about 1990s HBO and some old Husker baseball memories. You remember baseball, right? Well it’s that sport that the Big Ten just can’t seem to figure out. (Softball too, sorry.) The Big Ten has misplayed every aspect of every sport for the last eleven months, putting schools and their teams in impossible situations. While other conferences are proactive and have tried to implement plans that allow their student-athletes an opportunity to compete, the Big Ten leadership can’t seem to get out of their own way. So we talk about the lack of a plan for baseball, and how the Nebrasketball team is playing 15 games in 32 days, yet the conference is concerned about the well-being of the players. And since we just had National Signing Day, we talk a little about the player who committed to Nebraska...and the player who did not. And some former Huskers are in the Super Bowl, so we have some predictions for that game. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    In this episode, Jon talks about Nebraska baseball and how the Big Ten doesn’t give a damn about baseball. We start with Nebraska fans’ attitude when we first joined the Big Ten. Remember that? We thought we’d take over the conference. Hasn’t quite happened. Is that Darin Erstad’s fault? What about recruiting? A schedule is yet to be released, but right now it looks like the 2021 Big Ten baseball season will be conference only, four games per weekend and no mid-week games. This will destroy the Big Ten’s RPI, meaning they’ll find it difficult to get more than one team into the NCAA Tournament. Does the Big Ten actually care about the sport of baseball? It doesn’t look like it. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

We will be joined by one more, so the plan is for Corn Nation to have better Nebraska volleyball coverage than any other site in the nation! Back to the podcast/video thingy. Ty and Beth do most of the talking (Thank God!). We discuss: Why Nebraska is ranked #3 in the Big Ten behind Wisconsin and Minnesota, but ahead of Minnesota nationally. Wisconsin’s #1 ranking. The season. It’s a conference-only season for everyone. That’s going to make for a rather weird season. Nebraska’s volleyball team, who’s back, who’s gone, and who’s just shown up. The better player - Lauren Stivrin or Lexi Sun? Omaha and the possibility the entire NCAA tourney might be played there. Can one great volleyball player take over a court like Lebron James or Michael Jordan did in basketball? Devaney might be really weird without fans Other stuff that was way too technical for me that volleyball fans would really enjoy Oh, and I say “Hootenanny” because that’s exactly what it’ll be if we get the NCAA tournament in Omaha!

    Star receiver/running back/all-around explosion that is Wan’Dale Robinson announced that he’s putting his name in the transfer portal in the hopes of finding a place closer to his mother and family that will allow him to achieve his dreams and goals. Robinson cited his mother’s health as the main reason for his departure. Unfortunately his departure brings forth other questions about Scott Frost’s tenure at Nebraska. There are many players across the nation who have entered the transfer portal, but to lose your star offensive player and (probably) best player on your team begs the question if there are other issues, such as having a quarterback who can hit a receiver with a pass 20 yards or more down the field.
