Nate Clouse: Husker Online

Michigan is only one win away from giving the Big Ten a baseball national championship

-The Wolverines had another hot start, leading 4-0 early on, and holding on for a 7-4 win to take control of the CWS Championship series. Do they close it out tonight? And what does this do for the B1G’s image in baseball going forward?

-Isaiah Roby goes 45th in the NBA Draft to Dallas…like the fit there?

-Is it too early to project a starting 5 for Nebrasketball? Fred Hoiberg says he wants a team that can get downhill quickly and often…what players fit that best?

-Chucky Hepburn and Hunter Sallis are two in-state players getting attention nationally…where does Nebraska stand with them?

California wants college players to be compensated for their likeness, but the NCAAwants to ban the state’s schools from NCAA Championships if that happens…will anything ever change?

-A proposed California bill would allow college athletes in the state to start earning compensation for the use of their name, image, or likeness beginning in 2023, but the NCAA is fighting against it, and is threatening to not allow any California schools to compete for NCAA Championships if that is the case

-Will there ever be unity in all of this? Schools and athletes won’t stop pushing, but will the NCAA ever stop pushing back?

Adam Silver wants to change NBA owners to ‘governors’….for real?

-Silver said he has never liked the term of ‘owner’ because of the former association to slavery with the term, which is honorable, but this seems a little over the top, doesn’t it?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

What Huskers of the past would you most like to see what their careers would have been if they stayed healthy?

-It was a big viral topic on Twitter yesterday, and many decided to ‘Huskerize’ it. Bobby Newcombe, Matt Herian, Jaivorio Burkes, Charles Jackson, and Sean Fisher come to mind…any other football players, and any other Huskers in other sports?
