NFL approves a 7th playoff team per conference, and announces what networks will pick up the games…do you like 2 additional wild card games?

-Sports Business Daily reported yesterday that CBS and NBC will both pick up a game, and NBC will stream the game on their Peacock service, and CBS will also simulcast their game on….Nickelodeon. They’re trying to tailor to young fans. Thoughts on all of this?

What If Wednesday: What if ESPN reversed its decision on the Nebraska football 30-for-30 episode about the 1994-95 team and went forward with it?

-We heard in 2016 about plans for ESPN to produce a 30-for-30 episode on that team, but then learned in late August 2017 that they decided to not go forward with it

-Now is the time more than ever to get things like that up and airing on TV with no sports going on…what would be most interesting about that potential show? And what other Nebraska-featured items would be interesting on a 30-for-30?

-NCAA allows athletes from spring sports to return to school for a senior year next year if they choose…how’s that going to look with scholarships and size of roster with incoming freshmen, too?

-Some are mad that winter athletes weren’t allowed to come back, even though they completed 90%+ of their season and didn’t have a chance to play for a championship…thoughts?

-When do you think a deadline will be to decide on whether there is a college football season or not?

Sunday is National Nebraska Day, and ESPNU is airing 10 straight hours of great sports moments from the state to celebrate….what games would make your list?

-They are sharing the love between Nebraska, Creighton, and UNO—for example, UNO’s win to get to the Frozen Four in hockey; Nebraska volleyball’s national title win over Texas in 2015; a Creighton basketball game with a buzzer-beater; the flea-kicker in 1997 for Husker football; and a CWS game

-If you had to choose 8 events across all of Husker sports to air on an all-day ‘best of’ network series, what would you choose? And you CAN’T use all football games for this scenario

-For Nebrasketball….No Sit Sunday, the Big 8 championship in 1994, or the NIT championship..or another game? Football has many choices, as does Husker volleyball….
