So Nebraska almost beat Texas at home. Then Nebraska gets killed by Kansas in the next home game....I'm not even going to list the final score but as I type- its a 28 point lead for KU at the 9 minute mark of the second half. Does that mean the Valley is bad or CU isn't a good basketball team because NU beat the Jays who are in 1st of the MVC? Absolutely not and that illustrates a big difference with basketball and football.
You can't compare wins in November with those same teams in Jan/Feb. College Basketball is all about how you finish - not who you beat early. Just ask Missouri St. about that.
The Bluejays have developed behind their 3 seniors. Nebraska peaked in game 2. Talent wins out in the long run....in some ways, that's why the NCAA tourney is so loved. 9 times out of 10 - Kansas beats Bucknell....but it is the 1 that everyone loves to see happen. I don't care to argue about "what if the Jays played NU now?". It doesn't matter. These two programs are in very different positions. But they are in the exact position I thought they would be - CU headed for the dance most likely - NU hoping for a prayer at the Big 12 tourney.
There are a lot pissed of Nebraska fans who thought they had a team that was going to compete this year. At 1-5, Nebraska will be lucky to win 5 conference games. We knew the year was going to go like this going into the season - it was the start that surprised everyone. This game vs. KU was a bit of an embarrassment but they are going to have games like this until Doc gets some players.
I can't say anything negative about Doc except that I think he overworked the team and they appear to be out of gas. They couldn't even come out with energy for national tv vs a Top 10 team. Nebraska is who we thought they were.....I'm not crowning them anything and the Big 12 will not let them off the hook.
