Todd and I get together for another episode of the Five Heart Podcast!

This episode we discuss:

  • New recruits - Quarterback Richard Torres and kicker Josh Jasek
  • The Christian McCaffrey tweet taking a shot at Scott Frost as shown below
  • The Big Red Blitz tour and the recruiting class numbers
  • How much Todd hates exploitation
  • Name Image and Likeness as it pertains to Nebraska

Regarding the McCaffery Tweets:

Mitch Sherman started it when he tweeted the bit below. Then Luke’s overachieving brother took at shot at Scott Frost when Frost was talking about bad advice, not Luke McCaffrey.

Here is the full context of the Scott Frost commentary on the transfer portal:

I got in on it with a really mean tweet, honestly, because I thought Christian McAffrey’s tweet was stupid. STUPID.

Dylan McCaffrey transferred from Michigan to Northern Colorado to play football. Luke McCaffrey went from Nebraska to Louisville to Rice, a place known for great pitching, or at least it used to be.

Sensitive much, McCaffrey brothers?

Jon has a book out!

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

He wrote a book about 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.

Consider signing up for Jon’s Postlife Crisis newsletter, which is about Jon and interests beyond Cornhuskers sports. (I know, right?)
