This episode I take a look at the returning production of players on the 2021 Nebraska defense.

Great news for Nebraska fans!

The defense returns 9 of 11 starters from last season, including the top eight tacklers.

Many players could have moved on, but chose to return to help our beloved Huskers return to greatness:

Cam Taylor Britt - The dude everyone was worried about.

JoJo Domann - top tackler.

Will Honas - 2nd tackler - lead team in sacks.

Deontai Wiliams - Safety - 3rd leading tackler.

Marquel Dismuke - Safety - 4th tackler.

Ben Stille - sacks and TFLs

Nebraska has experience on the defensive side of ball. That’s a huge deal.

I have a book out!

On August 21st, 2015, I unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. I was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. I was shocked two more times in the ER. I was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and I was induced into a coma. In January 2016 I received a second stent and in June I was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.

I wrote a book about my death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life, what happens versus what we want to happen. It’s available at Amazon in Kindle and Paperback.
