Bounds, Pollard are not candidates to replace Bill Moos as Nebraska Athletic Director

-Both former NU president Hank Bounds and Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard crossed their names off the list of eligible candidates…should this be startling for Big Red Nation?

Runza came out of the gates strong with a sponsorship deal for in-state athletes

-According to Evan Bland, the first 100 current athletes who opt-in to a social media promotion will be paid a flat amount for all 100 athletes with more similar promotions on the way. The offer takes advantage of the Opendorse Deals portal to offer the sponsorship to athletes regardless of which in-state school they attend.

-How long will the adjustment process be for Husker fans seeing student athletes promoting brands, business and more on social media, television, billboards, etc?

-Will this affect the enjoyment of some fans?

Which football program has the higher upside: Nebraska or Iowa State?

-It’s a question Mark Onwiler posed to us after the show yesterday, and a sad thought to think about. Could the same be asked of Indiana vs. Nebraska, too? Think about that historically

-Iowa State is in the midst of their most successful run in program history the last few years, thanks to Matt Campbell’s work as head coach. Is it sustainable long-term? Can Ames be a landing/finishing spot for a coach or always a stepping stone? What about Nebraska?

Are we prepared for the financial numbers that are going to come out, starting tomorrow, with NIL?

-July 1 arrives tomorrow, and that’s when things get interesting in college athletics. Some NFL outlets believe that some numbers we will start seeing tomorrow for athletes will keep them in school longer instead of opting early for the NFL Draft

-You wonder if there will ever be free agency of sorts in college sports now, if the money is THAT good to consider staying vs. going to the pros. Will that ever come to be?

Also, Jake is scared of 3D-printed meat.
