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?
