If we beat Wisky....?
Normally I would agree with you but this has a different feeling. Starting to pull on everyone’s heart strings. They have the quality wins and 19 wins does get u in. Losing conference record is the big negative but they may get a break because of losing key player, taking their licks and finishing strong (4 out of 5 if they beat Wisconsin and lose next game).I can’t think 19-16 gets it done, even with two neutral wins over ranked teams. I think 20-16 would, though, but maybe a play in game.
I see what you're getting at now. I went back and reread @Red Blitz's post that you responded too and realized what you were getting at. My bad.We have to finish with 16 losses unless we win the B1G — in which case it’s automatic. So 19-16 and 20-16 are the options to consider.
Yup, they are just so far off the bubble that even beating some good teams won't be enough. Although teams like Belmont, Furman, etc, are praying that NU doesn't become a bid stealer.Agree. They make the CCG and they will be in the conversation but lose that game I think too much damage was done.
ESPN LinkNebraska Cornhuskers, 31.18
The Cornhuskers are the third team on this list that has never won an NCAA tournament game. Not only that, Nebraska hasn't won a conference championship since it won the Big 8 tournament in 1994 and was snubbed from the tournament last season despite winning 13 Big Ten games, something that had never happened.
So how are the Huskers this "low?" Nebraska did make the tournament recently, qualifying in 2014, and the Huskers are blessed to have rivals that haven't completely torn it up. While Creighton, Iowa and Minnesota have had more success than Nebraska, none of them has made it to the Sweet 16 this millennium. Therefore, there's less outside angst.
