I'm with Norm. While it's tempting to compare the current season with the season following the NCAA Tournament run (I guess they have to talk about something), I don't think it is a very good analogy for several reasons. The situation is entirely different. Nebraska's preseason ranking the following year would likely have very accurate; IF the Same team had returned the following year. @Donkey has some great points (as well a a good memory). Rather than attribute the demise to ball-hogging instead of team-play, I think that losing key, but un-acclaimed contributors like Leslee Smith prior to the start of the season was just the beginning. Then Walt failed to return to form, ceasing to be a factor and disappearing from several games before ultimately becoming seemingly retired. Shavon was increasing coming into his own but Tai had not yet reached his stride. With the lack of scoring options, it seems only natural to look to your best player (IIRC Terran had been the leading scorer in the B1G during the tournament season). Even so, the Huskers gave Rhode Island a hell of a game before going down to defeat at the end (how many times in the past have the opposing team's fans rushed the floor after winning?), but the heart-braking loss was the forerunner of the season's slide.
Several have recapped the current team's situation; and I don't see any comparison with '14-'15, other than the the team failed to live up to billing. This year's team may yet fall short of our expectations, but I believe the chances are much better than in '14-'15. If Glynn Watson has a break-out year, and other players improve year-over-year, we could be very Good this season.
