It’ll be interesting to see how much Hoiberg recruits the Nebraska-area talent in the future

Could you ever imagine being wealthy enough to pay off all the student loans of a graduating college senior class?

  • Forgot to mention this yesterday—billionaire Robert F. Smith vowed to pay the student loans of the 400 graduating seniors at Morehouse College—around $40 million in total—as his gift to the class. That might be the best gift in the history of the world
  • Could you imagine being that wealthy?

  • Which addition from last week (Kevin Cross, Samari Curtis, Derrick Walker) has the most upside?
  • How did Nebraska get Ohio’s Mr. Basketball to come to Lincoln?
  • Could Isaiah Roby be getting into the first round of the NBA Draft after his Combine performance?

Is the Colorado game the most desirable travel game for Husker fans in any recent year you can think of?

  • Every person you talk to keeps saying they plan to go to that game or at least travel out there…there’s always anticipation for good conference road games, but you get to go to those places more often than a non-conference opponent, obviously—especially one that’s a former Big 12 North rival
  • Does anything stick out in recent memory that’s as intriguing of a trip as Boulder this year? How much red will be in that stadium? Might be one of the tougher tickets to get in recent memory, anywhere

Sam McKewon thinks softball attendance could eventually surpass baseball attendance in college sports…is that really possible?

  • McKewon wrote yesterday about overall attendance in college sports in the Big 10, and that Nebraska crushed all other schools in baseball attendance, but noted that Michigan softball had more attendance than baseball this year, and he thinks in 10 years that could become more of a norm in the sport…

The Michigan coaching search apparently has 3 serious candidates now…are any of them anywhere near the level of Jon Beilein or….Fred Hoiberg?

  • Stadium’s Jeff Goodman reported that Providence’s Ed Cooley, former Wolverine star Juwan Howard, and Michigan assistant Luke Yaklich are the current leaders to land the job…do any of those names ‘pop’ or is Michigan just due to take a step back?
  • This is a little bit of a cautionary tale to Nebraska, too. Beilein made Michigan an elite program, and the intrigue for the job doesn’t seem that high—it’s not great timing, obviously. You have to wonder the interest level in the job if Beilein had left at a better time for hiring coaches…
