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?

-We often question the attractiveness of Nebraska as a head coaching destination. Is it an attractive AD job? What names are still out there? Alberts, Stewart, Davison? John Cunningham?

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?

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?
