    2018-19 Husker opponents

    Not meaning to call you out specifically, but I see so many people say this same thing. Not sure I understand it. The quad system is an improvement over the days in which top 50 wins or top 100 wins were quoted without taking location into account. I don't get the strong disdain or confusion. Now, what should be improved is the underlying metric used to determine the quadrant. It should be some sort of aggregation of RPI, Kenpom, etc and not just RPI.

    Roby (is Good)

    I'm on vacation with no access to a computer right now, but this is very easy. The most time-consuming part would be getting the game by game box score data.

    Morrow leaving

    My top 5 favorites, in no particular order: George Harrison - What is Life George Harrison - Got My Mind Set On You John Lennon - Watching the Wheels Paul McCartney - Band on the Run Paul McCartney - Let Me Roll It But although it's not in my top 5, the answer to your question might be Imagine by John Lennon.

    Nebraska will host Seton Hall in the 2018 Gavitt Games

    Yes it would have been nice for it to be a road game from an analytics perspective, but Seton Hall is still 25th in the pre-season Bart Torvik rankings. Still a really solid opponent.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    That means absolutely nothing. It's very common for coaches to be showing full support externally up until the very end.

    This. We should try to schedule all of the "cupcakes" in the 200s for sure. Absolutely no 300s. But if for whatever reason we struggle to get all teams in the 200s, it should be a D-2 opponent.

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Kind of. This article has some details on that and some speculation on what happens. http://kwsn.com/news/articles/2018/mar/21/zimmer-daum-likely-to-return-to-sdsu-but-dont-rule-out-nba/

    Greatest Upset in the history

    D'oh, great catch. I was looking at results through the 2016-2017 season. And another one experiences sweet victory before us... the play-in games are really dumb with how they mess up these kinds of stats, though.

    I've heard from multiple people that he's likely going to Creighton, frustratingly.

    2018 Husker Baseball

    Wow. I bought all-session passes to the Big Ten Tournament when tickets went on sale a little while back. Is Nebraska even going to qualify???

    Greatest Upset in the history

    I looked up recently to see if they were any schools with more regular season wins as a program with no NCAA tournament wins. I honestly figured we would be #1 since we have had relatively few losing seasons in our history. Nope - Akron is #50 all-time with 1,577 wins and is 0-4 in the NCAA tournament. We've got 1,476 wins.
  14. I mean, no surprise there, and we shouldn't feel bad about that. This is pretty objectively the least important game of the season. All of the prior games had larger goals still in front of us.

    USC Coach nails it

    Yeah, and USC being left out may have been the worst choice made by the committee. They should have been in. And I believe that if Nebraska won those two games, at 24-8, we would have been in.
