Frosted Flakes: Big Things Are Happening

New, 15 comments

Bike rides, NIL, and volleyball hopes

There have been big things happening these last few days.

Most importantly, my husband and I bought bikes and I went on my first bike ride in 20 years. (Saying that makes me feel super old.) I was really nervous that this was going to be a disaster and I would end up with some road rash or broken bones, but as it turns out, it is “just like riding a bike.” Expect to see me on the world bike riding circuit any day now.

Ok, so maybe that wasn’t that most important. Maybe Nebraska looking for a new AD and NIL are a little more important.

Jill already filled up in on the AD front runner in yesterday’s Flakes.

I am excited to see what NIL will do for the athletes at Nebraska. Lexi Sun is sure to be one of the top money makers in the state. She has more than 75, 000 Instagram followers and over 13,000 followers on Twitter.

Speaking of Husker volleyball players that have a large fan following, Lauren Stivrins is still not sure if she’ll be back next year.

It’s hard not to be excited at the prospect of her in a Husker uniform again in the fall.

Now here are your flakes.
