About The Show

The Big Red Cobcast is an irreverent Nebraska Cornhusker Football podcast hosted by Nebraska bred comedians. It’s the funniest thing to happen for Nebraska since we made Spurrier cry.

Pat janssen is the nerd, Joe Canale is the stoner and Tweedy is the dope ass, cool guy. Well, now you know who we are. So let’s do it to it.

Please follow us on Twitter (@bigredcobcast) for all of our hot takes, sweet jokes and fan favorites like #WistromWednesday, as well as some analysis and interviews with former stars, coaches and whoever the hell else we feel like talking to.

And most importantly – GBR baby!


    It’s a stripped down Cobcast this week. Why? Because Nebraska doesn’t deserve to be recognized with a full-fledged, production-filled spectacle like in normal weeks. Also, because Tweedy left town with some of the equipment. This week, Joe and Pat lick their wounds after the Huskers’ schizophrenic effort in Oregon. They examine who’s most at fault. Bob Diaco? Tanner Lee? Mike Riley? Injuries and depth? Our expectations? They also get a little positive. They celebrate Matt Farniok, bid farewell to David Knevel’s career, and revel in Stanley Morgan Jr’s second half. But there’s also a lot of misery. Like Stanley Morgan Jr’s first half. The whole first half in general. Four interceptions. And then the guys move on to Northern Illinois. How does Saturday’s game and its seemingly two different halves affect the expectations for this season, and do the Huskers take it out on the Huskies this coming weekend? Will we see Tre Bryant? Does any of it matter any more because good God we gave up 42 friggin’ points to the Ducks in one half? Also, if you see Tweedy, tell him to bring back the equipment.
