Trusting a transfer quarterback to lead your program is a dicey decision. Since it’s become more frequent over the last decade, we’ve seen schools hit the jackpot on transfer QB’s, but also miss the mark on more than one occasion.

Nebraska is hoping that new quarterback Tanner Lee becomes one of the success stories this season, as the former Tulane signal-caller is already generating some significant expectations and hype:

On this episode of The Hangout in the Holy Land, Corn Nation’s Brian Towle talks about the importance of Lee’s quick acclamation to the team this year, and why his success —or lack thereof— may decide Nebraska’s season. Brian also breaks down everything about the 2017 Cornhuskers, including:

  • How head coach Mike Riley’s first two years have gone, and what to expect in year three.
  • Changing the style of the offense to fit Lee’s skillset, and which skill position players need to step up.
  • The sheer insanity of new Defensive Coordinator Bob Diaco (seriously, watch one of his UConn press conferences) and what he brings to the program.
  • Why the Cornhuskers should start the season fast, whether they can be a factor in the Big Ten West title race, and more!
