A few excerpts

Nebraska coach Doc Sadler said Thursday he’s considering “a little bit’’ of change in his starting lineup for Saturday’s 2 p.m. home men’s basketball game against No. 16 Michigan State.“I don’t know for sure how,’’ he said. “But we’ve got to have some of these new guys out there with four guys who have been out there before.

“Athletically, we can’t play with those guys (with our guys) playing 35 minutes,’’ Sadler said. “They are probably better athletes to begin with.’’

First a positive....the guy isn't making excuses and probably could with three big injuries. It seems Doc realizes he doesn't have the horses to play in the Big Ten competitively, and although he does not state it, he has to realize that is because of his recruiting shortfalls.
