Jake saw an article on ESPN.com that had him wondering…who are the biggest phenoms you thought would be great that flamed out?

-ESPN.com had a nice feature on the disappointing career of Freddy Adu, who was cast as the next big thing in soccer at age 14, but never mounted much of a career and has been a ‘vagabond,’ as the article describes….is there anyone like him you KNEW was going to be great…but it just never happened? (Danny Almonte, Marcus Dupree…)

-2 days until we find out if Isaiah Roby gets drafted into the NBA as the first Nebraska player this millennium….where do you think he ends up? S.I. had him going No. 46 to Orlando as of Monday

-It’s been an embarrassing stretch of no drafted players for Nebraska…how many players should they expect to get drafted over, let’s say, a 5-year stretch?

-Nebraska has been offering some big name players recently…any chance of getting any of them?

program expect to send players to the league?

-Parker pointed out yesterday that it’s really unfathomable how Nebraska has never won an NCAA Tournament game in its history—we are aware of the pain. But to not have anyone drafted this millennium? It’s almost 2020! How is that possible?! Yes, only 2 rounds of the draft, but still. It’s Division 1 basketball.

-How often should Nebraska expect to have players drafted to the league? Hoiberg had 4 players of his get drafted to the league at Iowa State (3 of them after he had left, but they were his players). Development will be big, although Nebraska has been offering some big names lately…

Would you ever have the balls to pretend you were someone else who looked like you?

-There was a fake Kawhi Leonard signing autographs for fans at Toronto’s NBA Championship parade, and the people getting signatures had no idea, although this guy was way shorter than Kawhi. Do you look like any famous people, and if so, would you ever have the balls to fake that you were them?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

Athlon Sports puts Scott Frost as the B1G’s 4th best coach, and Ryan Day as No. 10

-We had the conversation last week with the Sporting News’ Bill Bender about coach rankings, and he had Ryan Day ahead of Scott Frost, despite only having 3 games of head coaching experience as an interim coach last year with the Buckeyes

-22nd might seem high, but doesn’t 10th in the league feel a little low? What is your fear level of the Buckeyes now without Urban Meyer? Think back to what happened in the one year in between Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer with Luke Fickell in 2011
