-The Pac-12 announced they’ll now allow non-conference games for football…will the Big Ten change their stance, or was Nebraska’s early push final on those terms? Will BYU get more Power 5 games to benefit with a playoff push?

-Thoughts on Nebrasketball’s schedule and proper expectations for the season?

Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 1

-What’s the Wan’Dale Robinson solution for Nebraska’s offense going forward?

-Are there any easy ways to get receivers the ball more at Nebraska? More quick passes to get confidence?

-Should this defense have any problems with any teams the rest of the season? What about Iowa?

The NBA Draft was last night…how soon until Nebrasketball gets a player drafted?

-Bryce McGowens will surely have a chance if he’s as good as expected in the future, but what about guys on the current squad? Do we have any idea yet? Will the school get more than just one in the next few years?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY (sponsored by Sartor Hamann Jewelers)

We have a Nebrasketball schedule! What’s the best stretch of winnable games?

-The goal this year is to play as many games as possible, with COVID causing so many cancellations and postponements. The goal is also to avoid a 17-game losing streak, which Nebraska is still riding now

-Any Creighton on the schedule? Any surprises otherwise? Overall thoughts from Sip and Jake…

Ted Carter rips the Big Ten again, and Jake and Sip assess how things have gone since B1G football came back

-UNL President Ted Carter spoke to the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday and said that Nebraska hasn’t got enough credit for bringing B1G football back, and that they will still stay in the conference despite not fitting very well

-Jake and Sip go back on the decisions the B1G made throughout the year and discuss how it was right to try playing all along, instead of just throwing up hands and quitting and not trying.

Robin Washut (Husker Online) / Shut Up Sipple

-Isaiah Roby goes 45th in the NBA Draft to Dallas…like the fit there?

-Is it too early to project a starting 5 for Nebrasketball? Fred Hoiberg says he wants a team that can get downhill quickly and often…what players fit that best?

-Chucky Hepburn and Hunter Sallis are two in-state players getting attention nationally…where does Nebraska stand with them?

Could Nebraska really produce 9 NBA players in a 5-season span, as Fred Hoiberg did at ISU?

-It seems impossible at a place that just went 20 years between drafted players to the NBA. But can you see a time (very) soon where Nebrasketball isn’t a stranger in the NBA Draft and has guys playing in the league consistently?

-Also, Fred Hoiberg lays out his projected strength of this team, being a ‘driving downhill and getting to the rim’ type of team. What guys fit that bill the best on this roster? Who is gonna get the playing time?

-Also, Mike Riley keeps getting jobs—now in the XFL as Seattle’s offensive coordinator!

Chris Basnett (Lincoln Journal Star) / Shut Up Sipple

-Isaiah Roby goes #_____ in the NBA Draft….good fit for him? Guaranteed first year in the G-League for him?

-Is it harder to believe that Nebraska hasn’t had an NCAA Tournament win ever or that they hadn’t had a player drafted at all in the last 20 years?

-Will Bolt introduced as Nebraska baseball head coach yesterday….thoughts on the hire and staff and what he’ll do here?

Isaiah Roby goes to the Mavericks at pick #45 in the NBA Draft….good fit for him?

-Overall thoughts on the Draft and any big surprises/big trades….and the future of Roby

-That’s a good feeling to see one of your own players you supported for his college career to get drafted…this should be the NORM, not the exception…right? Maybe not someone every year…but can’t we get someone every 3 years or so? Is that so much to ask for? How can Murray State have a guy go #2 overall? And guys from Weber State/Morehead State/Norfolk State in the past? Come on, now!
