Names and specifics starting to come out in the FBI probe on college basketball. So far I don't see anything on Nebraska (Addidas has been implicated in this and Nebraska is a big Adidas School).

Re: Westroads Development

I definitely still miss Sbarro. It's been two years now, been to one in Minneapolis and Denver and they weren't as good as the one we had here. Probably had to do with Omaha being a small city and easier to manage. I don't know how many years its been, but Bishop's is the place I miss. My mouth wat...

No way Dana leaves Oregon unless he is forced out for player issues, which I think has subsided.

I don't think Miles is on the hot seat or that Miles job depends on tonight's outcome.

Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

Penn State takes down #8 Ohio State last night.

All signs seem to point to a No Sit Sunday against them for the home finale on Sunday the 25th.

NU still needs to win at Illinois and at home against Indiana before then. Neither is a give me.

Re: 2017-18 UNO Hockey

Hockey tickets are pricey. UNO went to tiered pricing, so they upper bowl seats range from $20-35. North Dakota and Minnesot Duluth are the $35 games.

For this weekend due to demand, UNO is selling $10 standing room only tickets.

Should be a great atmopshere.

Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

It definitely hurt when Palmer was out. I understood the thinking of him needing a breather. Very quiet first halp (I think only 2 points, and that was on free throws I believe), he seemed to be everywhere in the 2nd. I also think it hurt with Bruno that Jordy T was in foul trouble in the 2nd half. ...

Based on Twitter seems to be a lot of demand for the Hate Never Wins t shirts players are wearing.

Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

I was definitely happy to get out of there with a win.

Down 11 in the second half with so many guys in foul trouble.

The team is so much deeper this year. Two starters (including Roby) did not score. And we won.

I think Palmer might be our best bet for all Big 10.
