    Finally, after 14 seasons in the shadows, Nebraska basketball matters to a degree. How far it goes from here is anyone's guess.

    College basketball is a sport where apathy can abound. Outside of a handful of programs where basketball is of primal importance

    It's one of the best-known stories inside the state of Nebraska – the Cornhuskers have joined Alabama and Oregon as the only three programs in major college football who have won at least nine games the last six seasons.

    Just imagine what the Big Red could do if it played consistent football.

    Judging by wins and losses alone, Nebraska is a consistent program. But over ...

    The 2013 football season was unquestionably the longest, most tumultuous season yet for Bo Pelini, who is now 57-24 in 6-years as coach at Nebraska. It was a season that saw fans direct their ire towards Pelini and both of his coordinators John Papuchis and Tim Beck. Many fans voiced concern that the Huskers had peaked under Pelini and in fact had begun to trend downward, particularly since the loss to Texas A&M in 2010.

    Nebraska had a rough start to the season. After a September ...

    The 2013 Nebraska Football Season was one of a lost promise. The Huskers went into the season with a fourth-year starting quarterback, four senior offensive lineman, and a schedule that didn't have Ohio State, Wisconsin, or an Indiana team waiting to be a disastrous match-up. With eight home games, ten wins seemed like a lock until Taylor Martinez and half the offensive line got hurt. Lack of injuries didn't get enough credit for Nebraska's success in 2012, but are getting a lot of mention for Nebraska's struggles this year.

    Which calls into question whether or not Bo Pelini and his staff did the best job considering the circumstances. 2013 looks like every other year Pelini's been here: Nebraska ...

    It has been said that bowl games originally served as vacation inspiration. Fans of teams in cold weather states should take a trip over the holidays to watch their beloved school play a game in some warm and sunny city (Pasadena, Miami, San Diego, Tempe, etc.). Along the way, the idea got all twisted and confused as decidedly non-exotic vacation destinations like Boise, Shreveport, and Detroit also got bowl games. But it is tough to argue with spending a week or two in sunny Florida - unless you're in Jacksonville during what appeared to be the rainy season.

    Despite the relatively poor weather, it appeared as if the Huskers had a good trip. Players were rewarded for a good (but not great) season, the seniors got one last chance to play with the "N" on their helmets, and most importantly, the team got an extra few weeks of practice that can only help their chances in 2014. Being able to beat a ranked team from the SEC? That is a just a cherry on top.

    There are some who say that bowl wins don't matter, but I disagree. This was a good win, for reasons we'll dig into below. Besides, it is good to return to the days when Nebraska was regularly beating the SEC in bowl games. Hopefully next time it will be as meaningful as the victories over LSU, Alabama, Florida, and Tennessee that helped Nebraska win four of their five national championships.

    So what did we learn?

    Husker Nation's glass will be half full until the Red/White Scrimmage, if not August 30. There is nothing like a bowl win to raise the mood of the fan base and their opinion of the program - especially when that win is over a ranked team from the big, bad SEC. The Huskers' win ensures that the discussions around the team will be more positive than negative, which has a huge impact on the collective mood of the state.

    Don't believe me? Just think of the doom and gloom being proclaimed from the radio hosts, message boards, bloggers, and print media writers if Nebraska had blown that lead against Georgia. What would your opinion of Pelini and ...

    As I write this recap, I'm at bit of loss as far as what to say. Not because Nebraska won when they should have lost-I have written that recap ad nauseam. It's that Nebraska won a competitive game under Bo Pelini by maximizing their opportunities and minimizing their errors and opponent's opportunities. For two years, Pelini's Huskers needed late game theatrics because of their ...

    This was a victory for those steady folks who believe in the law of averages. This was one for those conservative sorts who say the main thing is simply not beating yourself.

    Things have to even out after awhile don't they? If not for the Big Ten, at ...
