Re: 2017-18 UNO Hockey

Yeah that was a bad one. I think Denver has now 12 in a row over UNO.

I did not see getting shut out on back to back nights coming.

Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

I am not a huge Lee B. fan but this was a good read. Some good insight into the smaller lineup and diversified depth of this year's team.

Also had no idea we gave Michigan their worst loss in conference play in the last 5 years on Thursday.

Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

They looked so much better than the last 2 home games. Love the depth on this team.

There will definitely be more ups and downs to come from this group.
