Early Break: Jim Delany announces he will step down in 2020 as B1G commissioner…good or bad for the league

  • Delany has been the commissioner for 30 years, and has done great things like adding BTN and getting big money for his schools from TV contracts, while also expanding the conference with Nebraska, Rutgers and Maryland
    • but he has had some questionable tactics when it comes to the College Football Playoff, even with his conference missing out 3 straight years.
    • How do we define his era and where will the conference go next?

Berry Tramel (The Oklahoman) / Shut Up Sipple

  • Oklahoma is heavy underdogs to Alabama in the CFP…are people downplaying the Kyler Murray Factor too much?
  • Why is Oklahoma’s defense so atrocious this year?
  • Is there any truth to rumors about Oklahoma seeking out the B1G? Also, Sip wants to talk some Thunder.

As 2018 comes to a close, how do we summarize the year in Husker sports?

  • There were some highs, with Nebrasketball closing the 2017-18 season with the most conference wins (13) in school history…followed by a disappointing blowout loss to Michigan and then Mississippi State in the NIT. And now in the 2018-19 season, they’re off to a great start…how do we summarize that program?
  • Also, football goes 4-8 for the 2nd straight year, but it’s a year to set the foundation for the future. Will we look back at this year and wonder in the future how in the world a Scott Frost coached team only won 4 games, as they build toward being a contender in the near future?
  • Other sports: volleyball, baseball, softball…year in review

Graham Couch (Lansing State Journal)

  • What’s better for the B1G: Having a good overall bowl record, or having a team in the playoff and possibly an overall average record for bowls?
  • How will the B1G fair this bowl season? Early favorites/teams to watch for in 2019?
  • Thoughts on B1G hoops…is Nebrasketball a contender to win the conference? Is the B1G as deep as it appears so far?

No B1G teams in the College Football Playoff, but can another solid bowl season help solidify the conference as upper-echelon in college football?

  • Minnesota made some big waves on Wednesday when they blasted Georgia Tech, 34-10, to win their bowl game and get the B1G off to a 1-0 start in bowl play. Last year, the league went 7-1 in bowls, ending a stretch of tough years for the conference in the postseason. What happens if the conference has another good year in bowls?
  • Would you trade a bad bowl season for the conference in record for one of the teams in the conference being the national champion? What’s a better look for the conference?

  • Brian Christopherson (247 Sports)
  • Bull or No Bull
