    If I go I'll take photos and try to put together a summary. Here's my guess: Amir is better than we thought, Brady will need time, and Roby is gimpy.

    Thoughts on that Big 10 2 game stretch in early December? What's the logic? To give BTN some quality programming?

    It's probably something we'll continue to see. Last season I believe it had something to do with the B1G being able to schedule the B1G Conference Tournament @ Madison Square Garden. This year I think it may be a result of the B1G going to a 20 game conference schedule.

    I still say, our Huskers were totally disrespected by the committee!! 22 wins, losing by a hair vs Kansas, and they crap on them? The committee is a joke! Even in football, the committee is a joke!

    I'll put this here. The Big Ten looks much improved this year top to bottom. The 20 game schedule will be a meat grinder with no easy outs. Going 10-10 in conference, or better, will be very difficult. Although possible, making the NCAA tournament is going to be very challenging. We really need to go 10-1 in the non-conference games, 9-2 at worst, and of course have a few wins over quality opponents along the way.

    At least this year the strength of the conference should carry a few more of the teams into the tournament. Last year the perceived weakness of the conference really hurt us.

    Hang on, it's going to be a fun ride.

    GBR!!!

    Lincoln radio dorks were claiming it was 11 wins in conference to be sure of making the tournament this year. And Illinois is a must win game.

    Seton Hall and Clemson may turn out to be signature wins - I hope Creighton is another one of those wins!

    I have no doubt, we will play over .500 in the conference. :) We will steal 2 or 3 on the road, then play close to 100% at home. This team has pride and they know what the goal is. They have a chance to get to the NCAA tournament; they are hungry!!

    Sic em, Huskers!!!:Hair Fire::Corn2::Banana::Catfight:
