  1. Huskers have done a good job so far of slowing down Shon Morris' references to the missing Mike Watkins. He had only three after the second timeout. We need to keep Morris away from the mic and keep pounding.
  2. I'm pretty sure we're now behind Colorado.
  3. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    You mean such as paying the mothers of players? Or just the regular on-court crap?

    You haven't met a Nebraska alumnus, dressed in red at a football game, tell you that he roots for the only basketball program in the state that matters, and that it's not Nebraska.

    Agreed. The conundrum is that online advertising is fractions of a penny to dollars compared to print, so the advertising-supported model is outdated. Philanthropy-supported models (such as ProPublica and the Marshall Project) could be subject to political will of the funder. New funding models arise nearly every month, and it will test future generations, probably, to think of a European-style tax that allows for independent journalism (a constitutionally protected activity and, some would argue, a public utility) to exist whether it drives a profit or not. Interesting times ahead. I'm glad my most active reporting days were in the heyday of print journalism in South Florida (the 1980s).

    Thanks for the support. I know we aren't perfect, but the vast majority of journalists go to work every day not trying to fulfill an agenda, but simply trying to get at the truth and tell a good story in the meantime. We're really decent people, generally, but not to a person. We have warts, no doubt.

    Here's a story from a few months ago about why local journalism matters, and why it should be supported. It's a 45-minute listen from a local radio station in Boston. And local journalism begins with the local newspaper and its website. TV journalists don't have the resources to follow the mundane stories that local papers historically have. When it comes to news gathering, news organizations, the cutbacks have come all over in recent years. But local news may have taken the most dire hit. You want to know what happened at the town council meeting this week? Or the zoning commission? Or just around the block? Good luck to you in too many communities now. This hour, On Point: Saving local news. And we’ll talk with Bob Schieffer of CBS about how to sort fake news from fact. -- Tom Ashbrook.

    You know where TV journalists get their story ideas, right?

    The entire Big 12 has been hexed by Bill Self and his relentless drive toward 60 consecutive league titles.

    Quadrants, baby. Plus, Chambers is a tool.
  13. Nebraska = the single college basketball program in the entire history of the sport to have had the least fun over the past 120 years. So now we're having fun. And people bitch about it. F them. And did I mention Bob Knight already? Well, F Indiana.
