Re: Double Tree (72 and I 80)

I grew up on 68th near Elmwood and Ak Sar Ben. Worked as a bus boy at Kenny's on 72nd and Dodge (now where Do Space is). The influence of the race track definitely helped properties outside of 72nd. But the ones we are talking about on 72nd pretty much existed and were built with it in mind.That cor...

Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

Coming off the lost to CU, this is either going to be the best time or worst time to face Kansas for Nebraska. KU has lost 2 straight. So either they will be down or mad as you know what. Unfortunately I think it's the worst time to face them.

Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

Moving it up 30 minutes would help a little. Creighton has it better either way with almost all of their fans coming from Omaha. With Nebraska you have a large number not only from Lincoln but all directions from Lincoln.
