Sip and Jake take a deeper dive into NIL following the Manning prediction

-The high dollar figure Rovell placed on Manning has caused many in the sports media to reflect on NIL further…what issues do Sip and Jake see in paying unproven recruits big money?

-What factors should go into and impact a player’s marketability and value? Should businesses emphasize proven production, social media audience, intangible star power or pro prospects?

-NIL will certainly change the pitches coaches offer recruits across all sports…will every coach be able to adapt to the new landscape of college sports?

Darren Rovell predicts Arch Manning could make $10 million as a freshman in college

-As NIL rolls out, predictions are flying wildly. One eye-popping prediction came on the Dan Patrick show as Darren Rovell said he believes nephew of Peyton & Eli, Arch Manning, could make $10 million dollars before throwing a collegiate pass. Does this show the ridiculousness of new NIL policy?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-With NIL now in place…what matters more in recruiting: a relationship with a coach/school, or how much a player can get in sponsorships?

-How would you fare if your conversations in recruiting were more about potential money made from sponsors vs. believing in your coaching staff?

-Phil Steele ranked offensive position groups in the B1G and Nebraska only showed up in the top portion of the conference at one spot (QB)…how did we get to this point?

Phil Steele’s assessment of Nebraska’s offensive talent compared to others in the B1G is eye-opening, to say the least

-Steele’s yearly preseason college football ‘bible’ came out last week, and although he has Nebraska having the 4th best QB room in the conference, nothing else on offense was ranked in the top part of the conference

-Wouldn’t it be nice if the team actually came out and proved this stuff wrong for once instead of confirming what is thought of before the season? Also, do you agree where they stand according to Steele’s rankings?

-Also, Jake received a good DM on potential Nebraska NIL opportunities for players…

Lee Sterling (Paramount Sports) / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Is any conference in college football catching up to the SEC at all or not?

-Do you think NIL in college sports will do anything at all to shift the power from the current top teams or is it more of the same?

-Looking at the NFL…does early glance show that the Chiefs and Bucs should have a rematch in the Super Bowl or do you expect any demise from Tom Brady finally?

Is anyone in the B1G making up ground on Ohio State or are they an unstoppable train?

-Penn State sneaks up once in a while on the Buckeyes, but not consistently in the East. If you thought they’d slow down with Ryan Day replacing Urban Meyer, they have not done that at all

-Justin Fields isn’t there anymore, so we’ll see if their new QB is the real deal or not…but they get the benefit of the doubt, of course, with all the talent they have around him

-Is anyone in the West getting close at all? It doesn’t feel like it. An unclimbable mountain?

How close would a Milwaukee Bucks NBA Championship be in importance to Wisconsinites compared to a Packers Super Bowl?

-Parker is from Wisconsin, and Big Sky is a big Bucks and Packers fan despite being from Montana. We bring Big Sky in to add to the debate. The Bucks are in the Eastern Conference Finals

CBS Sports picks their over/under for 2021 B1G teams for football…so Jake and Parker Gabriel will, too!

-Tom Fornelli listed the over/under for every team in the conference, and he listed Nebraska as a push for 6 wins. Seems about right

-What else stands out that he picked for? And how much do Sip and Jake agree with what he said? Jake will say for the 100th time that the Illinois game predicates a lot of how this goes!
