Todd and Keith Yaple join me as we celebrate, bitch, and moan about Nebraska’s loss to Arkansas in the regional final.

We discuss:

  • Nebraska’s loss to Arkansas
  • The Strikezone
  • How will Arkansas be treated if they get to Omaha
  • A quick run around look at other regionals
  • The Strikezone
  • Kevin Kopps and the 743,000 pitches he threw
  • Arkansas’ complete disrespect toward Mojo Hagge and his family
  • What about pitchers for next season?

It was a great season for Nebraska baseball. Now it’s over.

Then There’s This:

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?)
