A quick update on the NBA Playoffs and what’s to come

-Remember how awful the Bucks looked in their first 2 games against the Nets? Well, they now have won 2 games in a row and tied the series. What happened to the Nuggets? Suns are good..

The CWS field is pretty much set…does Nebraska’s strong season make you more jacked for it than years past? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-The field for Omaha is pretty much set, and although Nebraska isn’t a part of it, the team this year rejuvenated a state’s interest in the sport, more so than just for the CWS

-Are you going to care more about it this year than normal? Or if so, maybe because it didn’t happen last year?

State of the Program: Athletic Director version..how do we assess Bill Moos’ tenure at Nebraska so far?

-It’s no surprise to anyone that Moos won’t be here forever, and that he probably longs for being on the ranch in Washington. But he’s here now, and has been here, and we can assess him

-We saw a Scott Frost/Nebraska football state of the program 2 weeks ago…how do Sip, Jake and listeners assess Bill Moos’ tenure at Nebraska so far? What grade does he get?

Jake and Sip have another golf match coming up soon…what one club should Jake have to use this time?

-Last summer, Jake let Sip use his entire golf bag, and Jake used a 2-iron only and beat Sip by 3 strokes at Jim Ager Golf Course

-What one club should Jake be allowed to use this time? Or should it be the same club again?

The CFP Committee has presented expansion possibilities for 6 to 16 teams…let’s not water it down / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-It’s a tired conversation but one that won’t go away: what’s the perfect plan for the College Football Playoff? It just seems really hard to see a 16-team playoff not resulting in a bunch of blowouts, which we are already seeing in the 4-team playoff

-A 6-team playoff makes lots of sense, as the Pac-12 champion has missed out on the playoff in 5 of 7 years, so they’ve had no chance to even get a game in…6 teams remains the smartest, who would honestly advocate for 16 teams and why?

Let’s have a positive Nebraska talk for a second: what EXCITES you about this year’s team and the future?

-We have a lot of talk about what bothers us and what concerns us. That’s easy talk when you haven’t been to a bowl game since 2016

-But Sip wrote about stacking acorns this weekend…and Jake could use some positive talk about Nebraska in his daily life. So what are the real things that the guys are genuinely optimistic about? And listeners, too?

There was a battle of Joshes on Saturday in Lincoln…does Sip think he’d come out on top in a battle of Steves?

-Dozens of people named Josh across the country came to Air Park on Saturday for a “Josh Fight,” which started out as a joke on social media but became a real thing with pool noodles as the main ‘weapon’

The ESPN broadcasters went crazy at the end of Saturday’s UFC fights…is there ever a time when Sip and Jake lost their composure while covering a sporting event?

-Jake is curious how Sip handled the Hail Mary (Westerkatch) in 2013 when Nebraska beat Northwestern…Jake wasn’t in the press box for that game

-We know that Jake tends to be a little more emotional in games….but how does he do in the press box role? Any yelling to report? What’s the worst that Jake and Sip have ever seen in the press box?
