Final thoughts on Huskers in B1G Baseball Tourney / Memorial Day Weekend Plans?

-Is Nebraska going to take the Big Ten Tourney title? Are you going to go to any games this weekend?

-Is Sip planning on having any wild parties this holiday weekend?

Do Memorial Stadium and Pinnacle Bank Arena need to implement alcohol sales? / Shut Up Sipple

-It’s a topic every offseason, and it’s a topic again, because Bill Moos was asked about it, and said it’d be under consideration in the suites, but not in the general stands

-Is that the proper way to do it? At basketball and baseball games, too? Jake would like to be able to get a beer while watching Husker athletics, but also is fine not doing so—because that’s always been how it is. Would it enhance the viewing experience for fans or make it worse for others around them?

-TO THE PHONES:

A Division III team has been involuntarily kicked out of its conference for…being too good

-University of St. Thomas, of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC), was removed from its conference on Wednesday due to competitive advantages; 6 championships since 2010 and 2 other appearances in the championship that they lost. OK with this or not?

Today’s Song of the Day brings up some music pet peeves for Sip & Jake

-‘The Cave’ by Mumford and Sons is Jake’s Song of the Day, and the guys discuss how the band has changed their way from being about the banjo to more of pop rock, and lament others who have changed from what made them popular to going to other styles of music

P.J. Fleck thinks society has a commitment problem…is he really able to comment on that?

-Fleck reiterated this week that if a player commits to his school, he isn’t allowed to visit any other schools—citing that society has a problem with commitment, and that’s not going to happen at his school on his watch

-Fleck didn’t honor his commitment at Western Michigan and left for Minnesota before his contract was up (obviously this happens a lot), but he also poached commits away from there to the new school…is he OK to say these things?

Husker Baseball gets pushed back from last night to today around noon…good or bad in terms of getting fan support?

-It’s not a tournament at TD Ameritrade Park if there aren’t problems with rain and storms! The Ohio State/Maryland game was delayed by more than an hour because of storms, and then was delayed in the 8th inning, designated for a 10am start time today to finish the game.  Nebraska to play an hour after that game ends

-Will a noon game be better for fan attendance today or not?

What would be better for the city of Lincoln: hosting the first 2 rounds of the men’s basketball NCAA Tournament, or having Nebraska baseball host a regional?

-Selfishly, most people would say Nebraska baseball because of the Husker bias and wanting to see their team perform well in the postseason at their own stadium….but wouldn’t it be better for the city to have the NCAA Tournament here for perception? Jake and Sip discuss.

Mike Schaefer (247 Sports/Huskers Illustrated): Part 2 / Shut Up Sipple

-Nebrasketball roster pretty much set for 2019-20 now with 3 additions last week…does Schaefer still think it’s a team bound to be under .500 on the season or has he changed his stance?
