In this episode of the VSH podcast, the shutdown corner opens up about a variety of topics including:

  • He and his wife's interaction with Pharrell Williams while on the set of The Voice (yes, we asked him about wearing his hat)
  • What he thought about Bo Pelini's final seasons and Shawn Eichorst's handling of Pelni's dismissal
  • The moment he finally realized he "made it" in the NFL
  • Bullying in sports
  • HIs prediction on how soon Nebraska will be in the national championship picture

Prince provided no shortage of riveting sound bites on top of everything mentioned above, so definitely check out the interview. He even delves into what the locker room was like in 2009 when the defense was on another level and the offense was more than inconsistent that season. It'll be 30 minutes well worth your time.

During the remainder of the show we discuss what sports play or outcome we'd go back and change if we could go back into time, whether or not the panic surrounding the basketball program is warranted, the best defensive backs of all-time, and more.
