Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

I think Missouri State got added in for the local factor. Some of the other local schools have played in this in the bast. Missouri, Kansas, K State, Wichita State have been in several times. Granted Missouri State is not of that caliber.

Both Bass Pro and Cabela's were given good incentives to develop at their present locations. I remember Scheel's was pretty vocal about the ones given to Cabela's considering the money Scheel's spent on their own store in Omaha without tax payer help.
