The Hooligans return from their extended break to discuss the College Football Playoff, Nebrasketball's recent woes, Mike Riley's coaching hires and more! Here are the highlights from this edition of the Vine St. Hooligans podcast:

  • Husker Hoops Central's Matt Knobbe stops by to drop some knowledge and provide hope regarding all things Nebrasketball. He also waxes poetic about the world of Tecmo Super Bowl.
  • Joe discusses the geographic profile of all of college football's AP National Champions over the last half century.
  • Derek and Nick debate whether it's time to panic about the current state of Nebrasketball.
  • Mike Riley's staff is compared to Bo Pelini's.
  • ESPN legend Stuart Scott is honored at the end of the show.
