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?

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.

It’s only one projection, but Athlon Sports has ZERO Nebraska offensive players in any of their top 4 preseason all-conference teams

-If that’s not a telling sign for where this offense is at heading into year 4, I’m not sure what to tell you. Nebraska really needs to prove people wrong and click this year

-There were 6 defensive players/specialists for Nebraska, but none on offense.

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-How would you do in recruiting in the upcoming times of Name, Image and Likeness? Does it fully take away the college sports notion?

-Doesn’t NIL make it perfectly acceptable to be critical of players now, where now it happens but often is cringe-worthy?

-Do you ever look at recruiting service ‘stars’ when recruiting a player?

With NIL on its way, how much does individual criticism skyrocket as players essentially become professionals to a certain extent?

-The Supreme Court ruled yesterday unanimously to rule against the NCAA, who wanted to have the right to have ‘national limits on benefits for athletes that are related to education’

-With paid players coming very soon to college athletics, it takes away the amateur nature of the sport, which in the past, caused people to be cautious when being overly critical of players

-Now? That goes away, right? And does that change recruiting habits at all? Always go big for 5-stars or go hard after 3-stars and make them earn their contract?
