Isaiah Roby is receiving plenty of praise at the NBA Draft combine

– Jay Bilas: ”I think he showed why he’s a very good prospect in this year’s draft. (Roby is) probably a top second-round pick, maybe he can sneak into the first round.”

– He had finished with 10 points, five rebounds and three blocks in 21 minutes of one scrimmage

– He’s met with 5 teams (Houston, Miami, Phoenix, Toronto, Golden State)

– His testing numbers show he’s one of the most athletic forwards in the draft

FOX’s 11a.m. time slot will now be its primetime game – are you OK with Nebraska’s biggest games potentially being at that time?

– 11am games arguably make an impact on recruiting.

– Fans generally are disinterested in early games. Memorial Stadium tends to be less a snooze fest for them.

The Big Ten is the richest conference in college sports, how should that factor into athletic expectations at Nebraska?

            – The Big Ten made $759 million in 2018. That’s $250 million more than the conference made in previous year. The SEC is in second with $660 million last year. What should the Big Ten conference’s expectations be, considering they make more than the SEC?

– Nebraska gets its fair share of the money too, they’ll make over $50 million with the deal. How should Nebraska utilize the money? Football facilities are certainly on the docket. It’s no secret, too, that updated facilities will impact performance and recruiting.

– What more expectations in other Nebraska athletics should be set?
