Sip unveils another story from his past of covering Husker football….with Frank Solich and LeKevin Smith

-Story time with Sip continues…what was the incident he had with Frank Solich about the recruitment of LeKevin Smith in 2000-01? He unveils the scene…

-Also, yesterday was supposed to be MLB Opening Day and also the first day of the Sweet 16 for college hoops…if you could bring one of them back, what would you choose?

-MLB Opening Day always feels like the official start of Spring for those who don’t believe that early March is that, and yesterday, that was taken away from us, and might do so until June or later

-The Sweet 16 is great but also doesn’t have the same magic with all the madness that happens from the first 4 days of the tournament…which are you missing more today and yesterday?

Roger Goodell wants to keep the NFL Draft on the scheduled date, but NFL GMs aren’t thrilled about it because of lack of time for proper preparation with current circumstances

-ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday morning that NFL GMs don’t think they’ll be properly ready for the NFL Draft to be on the current days (April 23-25) because of so many unknowns: how will the teleconference system work in real-time, how do you properly get final evaluations on players and psychology tests, etc.

-Schefter suggested the NFL try and make it a week-long draft, with one round per day, instead of moving the event back. It’s going to be moving very fast via teleconference to pack 2 rounds in a day and 4 rounds the final day…he may have a point

Is there any chance that Division 1 football games in the Fall could be played at small high school stadiums?

-Continuing the conversation from the first segment, Sip and Jake discuss how possible it would be to make a football field in a park or else play the games at small high school fields to not make it as awkward for both the players and broadcast team to play the game in a giant empty stadium

-Listener phone/text reaction…

What would a college football season that went on as planned—but without fans—look like?

-The AP’s Ralph Russo spoke with an AD on Thursday who said he is having his staff start modeling out what it means to the department to have any of these situations happen: a 10 game football season; losing 1 home; losing 2 home games; no fans all season; no fans through October

-Would you be 100% in support of playing all the games if it meant no fans could be in attendance? The TV contracts would help with some money for universities but they’d lose so much money in revenue from ticket sales and all the other sales…what does that even look like?

Since people can’t get haircuts until May 6th….will Sip and Jake have to give each other haircuts during the show?

-It’s a frightening thought to think of Sip or Jake having to cut the other person’s hair. But desperate times bring desperate measures. Will we see buzzcuts coming for the guys soon? Would they trust each other, or would producer Corinne have to do the job for them?

Nebrasketball appears set for a 3-year series with Kansas State…who else do you wish they’d do that with?

-Most people were excited to hear about this if it was in terms of football—but it’s not. Nope. Men’s basketball. Both teams were atrocious in 2019-20, but K-State made an Elite 8 recently. Next season’s game is at Sprint Center KC, 2021-22 game is in Lincoln, and then at K-State the next year

-Nebrasketball doesn’t have a rich tradition of success at all in hoops, and the teams that filled the crowds that game (looking at you, Kansas) pretty much always beat Nebraska down, minus the occasional close game or Nebraska defeat. But pretty much always a beatdown loss. Are they a team you’d want to come back? 2017 was pretty awesome except for the whole last-second loss thing..
