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?
