-We’re just shy of a full week into NIL being a part of the fabric of college athletics…what are your thoughts on the early-going so far?

-Do you recruit to a team anymore or just recruit to what players can get out of NIL?

-Thoughts on Phil Steele having only the QB group for Nebraska in the Top 60 in the country on the offensive side of the ball?

247 Sports ranked the potential wins that would cause the most excitement from the fanbase…is it an obvious order or not?

-Brian Christopherson ranked the Oklahoma game No. 1, Ohio State No. 2, Wisconsin No. 3, Michigan No. 4, and Iowa No. 5. Anyone have a problem with that?

-Illinois was at No. 6…should any other game go ahead of that or is that obvious because it’s the first game of the season and against a conference opponent?

The NIL discussing continues from the first segment

-Pro-NIL callers weigh in following the first segment with rebuttals to some of the points made by Jake & Sip…what do these callers see as the benefits to the “Wild West” policy of Name, Image, and Likeness?

-Does the inherent inequity in the current structure fly in the face of the rallying cry of the pro-NIL camp?

Jake & Sip continue to discuss the roll out of NIL

-Sip & Jake find the beginning of Name, Image, and Likeness to be an uncontrolled mess. What positive impact has the early adoption of this policy had on collegiate athletics? Or, has it all been negative?

-The Bucks and Suns started off the NBA Finals last night, and those 2 teams are never in that spot—it’s usually LeBron James vs. someone else…

Sip and Jake take a deeper dive into NIL following the Manning prediction

-The high dollar figure Rovell placed on Manning has caused many in the sports media to reflect on NIL further…what issues do Sip and Jake see in paying unproven recruits big money?

-What factors should go into and impact a player’s marketability and value? Should businesses emphasize proven production, social media audience, intangible star power or pro prospects?

-NIL will certainly change the pitches coaches offer recruits across all sports…will every coach be able to adapt to the new landscape of college sports?
