    Nebraska (13-5) vs. Rutgers (8-9) Game Thread

    Yes, this bugs me to no end with Miles. He has a propensity to try and let the guys figure it out because we are a veteran team. However, when you have no demonstrative leaders on the court, you are begging for things to unravel quickly as evidenced by the four 8-0+ runs. That is unacceptable against any team, let alone Rutgers, and is inexcusable on the coaching staff.

    If these last 11 minutes don't improve, this is going to be a miserable next five days. We are just lacking composure.

    We gave up an 8-0 run and a separate 15-0 run in the first half, yet we are still up five. If we can stop these mindless lapses and silly turnovers, we will win this game comfortably. Just need focus for a full 20 minutes in the second half.

    Yeah, exactly and all the more reason to step on their throats now, extend the lead and get our starters out of the game early to get them some rest. It would be nice not to ride them for 35 minutes tonight.

    Game Day Essentials: Game #19 at Rutgers

    WHOA...I'm calling foul on this. Somehow, @hhcmatt, five hours before tipoff, got a picture of Rutgers' arena 10 minutes before tipoff tonight. This is either witchcraft or some sort of jedi power that the rest of us could only dream to possess. I'm guessing the atmosphere tonight will only be marginally better than a funeral for a loved one that wasn't very well loved.

    I hope we will look back on these final seven minutes as the moment we went from good to great!

    Andy Katz will be in the house on Thursday to watch us hand Sparty their first conference loss of the year!

    I will be investing 2 hours tomorrow to listen to Kent's call where he yells "dagger" and "bangarang"repeatedly while hoping he calls Indiana fans a bunch of "jackwagons". It will be a glorious two hours!

    Husker Nation Defense & Rebounding

    This is exactly right. I believe Indiana is 10th in the BIG in rebounding margin. Further, Indiana is second to last in turnovers, where we thrive at creating turnovers (we are 1st in steals). On paper, our strengths/weaknesses match up very well with Indiana.

    A win is a win and I am going to need a drink after a win tonight. Good thing I didn't partake in the "take a shot game" for every offensive rebound we gave up.

    Yes, it is evident Nebraksa has a side bet with someone to see how many offensive rebounds we can give up and still win. Our "want to" on the boards has got to be improved. Rebounding is putting your body into someone, boxing out and giving effort. We are failing miserably in that regard but doing awesome on that side bet.
