Nebraska Cornhuskers starting quarterback Jeff Sims got a bit of love when talking about the best quarterbacks in the conference.
As we get closer and closer to the regular season, there are more and more lists coming out trying to predict exactly what we’re going to see this fall. One of those lists comes from television analyst Greg McElroy who recently put together a grouping of what he thinks are the best quarterbacks in the Big 10 this season.
While the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ new starting quarterback, Jeff Sims isn’t right at the top of that list, he’s in a spot that means things could be quite interesting for the Huskers this year.
McElroy has Sims listed as the fifth-best signal caller in the conference for the 2023 season. Michigan’s JJ McCarthy, Maryland’s Taulia Tagovailoa, Wisconsin’s Tanner Mordecai, and Iowa’s Cade McNamara are listed as the top four.
Certainly, if the Nebraska Cornhuskers are going to compete for a bowl game in 2023, they’re going to need top-notch quarterback play. McElroy is among those who believe they’ll get it.
Other Nebraska Cornhuskers news
- In the age of NIL, it should surprise no one that there is now even an energy drink that is geared around the Nebraska football team. Big Corn Energy is unique in this particular field not because it tastes like corn (I hope) but because profits from the sale of the product are going towards NIL funds that will allow Nebraska Cornhuskers walk-ons get a portion of the money.
- Much has been made of Jordy Bahl’s transfer to Nebraska. Everyone knows she’s a very good college pitcher, but Husker Extra went back and talk to the people she dominated in High School.
- It’s not distinctly Nebraska football related but the news out of Northwestern could be the sign of things to come. The Wildcats announced on Friday they were suspending head coach Pat Fitzgerald for his role in a hazing incident in his program. He’s been suspended two weeks. It’s also possible this is far from the end of it.
- Nebraska baseball stars like Brice Matthews and Max Anderson are quite excited about the upcoming MLB draft. But there are also some other Nebraska area kids who are expecting to get drafted.
