The problem with having a game at a smaller (but great) venue is that the small wage earner would be excluded.  The fair resolution is to have all tickets go up for sale on a lottery basis.  

 

I am pretty giddy if we just continue to have home games in our pretty special current home.

I'd pay an unreasonable amount of money to see it.

I would take time off from work and make the 5 hour (closer to 6 with flooding) hour drive on a week night to see a game there.

Come to think of it, It would also be 'perfect' for a "Secret Scrimmage!"   All-Devaney_ph34r.png   :Lol: 

If we truly want to honor our history, the secret scrimmage every year should be in Mabel Lee with towels on the windows.

From the Then & Now interview of Brian Carr:

HHC: 1985-1986 is a very memorable one for many reasons. Before we get to the positive, we have to ask what you remember about the illegal practice that happened at Mabel Lee. In your opinion, was that blown way out of proportion, and as a player, how did it make you feel?

 

BC: That was kind of the situation that I was talking about earlier in regards to Coach Iba, as far as making it very difficult. I don’t know… I hated the fact how everything occurred. Not just from the media side and not just from the players and coaching side, but just the whole situation. It was so tough to deal with, especially being 20 years old or whatever. I wish I could go back and change some things that took place and that were said, and so on. It was strange to have your own newspaper do that to you, to have that planted in the paper. But at the same time, if what we were doing was illegal or against the rules, I don’t know, I just did what we were supposed to do, and just learned to play. I didn’t want to deal with that other stuff.

 

And from Bill Jackman

HHC: 1985-1986 was a memorable year in

Nebraska basketball history, as it marked the first

modern day NCAA Tournament appearance for the Huskers.

Before we talk about this, we’d like to get your

thoughts on the “illegal practice” that took place at

Mabel Lee Hall. What do you remember about it?

BJ: No comment. (Laughs)

 

Do you think that the Mabel Lee Hall fiasco still grates on that team!?!?
