The NBA Draft Lottery is soon…should the NFL ever consider adopting that philosophy?

-The Jaguars and Jets were both accused of tanking last year in the NFL, and it helped guarantee both of them getting the top 2 picks of the draft

-There is certainly tanking in the NBA, but there is no guarantee that the team with the worst record gets the top pick…could that philosophy be brought to the NFL Draft or not?

How does a team that struggles to close out games…learn how to close out games?

-Jake saw yesterday that the Detroit Lions hired a ‘mental skills specialist,’ and it got him thinking about that kind of thing at Nebraska

-He’s already said the Illinois game is the most important game of the season because he wonders how fragile the team is if they lose their opening game…so it gets back to the question: how do you learn to close out games when it’s been an issue for years?

Sean Callahan (Husker Online)

-How much will NIL change the recruiting landscape from where it is right now, if at all?

-Dylan Raiola visited last Friday…is there a chance he ends up as one of the very top QBs in the class of 2024?

-How good has the talent pool been at Friday Night Lights camps and how successful would you say they’ve been so far in June?

Secret recordings getting released to the public remain a terrible thing, and this time, it’s for Wisconsin

-Seriously, what is it with all the rats out there? Bo Pelini got bit by it in the past, and now Greg Gard at Wisconsin. The locker room is SUPPOSED to be a safe and secret place, but it tends not to be anymore….a 37-minute audio recording from the Badger locker room during the season showed light to several players not feeling connected to Greg Gard, and other complaints

-You can be on whatever side you want, but we can all agree that this crap should never see the light of day when it’s in a locker room setting. Just the worst.
