Shatel: After tough 2010-11, Yori and Huskers show they're here to stay
A nice write up by Shatel.
So you thought Nebraska women's basketball had its 15 minutes of fame? Thought Connie Yori and the ladies would fall back to earth and never be heard from again?
Think again. Two years after that season of seasons — 32-2, Big 12 championship, No. 1 seed, NCAA Sweet 16 — the Huskers are 19-3 and half a game out of first place in the Big Ten.
This program is made of Teflon. Actually, it was built with brick, mortar and sweat. It's built to last. Tough.
Small wonder why.
It starts at the top, where the matriarch of the program leads by example, from the bench, the hospital bed or on crutches.
Connie Yori is one tough lady. Last September, she found out how tough.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. - Robert A. Heinlein
Great article! Another big game tonight against Michigan!
