You know you’re enjoying this. The Husker Men’s Basketball team finishes the regular season tomorrow at home, with a chance to avenge a loss to a Penn State team playing without one of their star players, in sophomore Mike Watkins.
In this week’s episode, Corn Nation’s David McGee is back to talk about the win over Indiana on Tuesday and to preview the game against the Nittany Lions. The win over the Hoosiers was a great bounce-back after the road loss at Illinois. And a win Sunday would ensure Nebraska stays in the top tier of the Big Ten and solidifies the double-bye for the Big Ten Tournament. And it’s always good to visit with David.
Episode 27 is here and Greg and Brian are talking about the first (and only) Snack Cracker Tournament of Champions. But that can’t be the only tournament discussed. So the guys talk about the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament in Washington DC. What has gone right for the conference? What hasn’t? And what’s the big picture?
NEW YORK, NEW YORK! Look for it in 2018, and a week earlier.
Despite the late season slump and the overtime loss to Penn State in the first round of the tournament, Tim Miles is expected to be back next year, as Husker fans learned just moments after the final buzzer sounded Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Nebraska Baseball is off to a slow start, but there may be a reason behind that, as we learned that Nebraska has the nation’s toughest schedule so far.
And the Husker wrestling team is preparing to send its athletes to St. Louis for the NCAA National Tournament.

Episode 21…recorded the night of (another?) disappointing Nebrasketball loss.
It seems the most frustrating part of this is that this is a Nebraska men’s basketball team that is competing very well with these other schools, but they just can’t close it out. And it sucks.
But that’s not all we’re discussing in the episode that, if weeks were years in the podcast realm, would be old enough to drink. We also talk about the once-again busy recruiting season, the final push before National Signing Day (Wednesday, February 1…Brian will be busy all day).
Also, some tomfoolery afoot about sleep number beds and wives who steal covers (it’s okay – they aren’t listening anyway). Also, fried chicken wrapped up (or sometimes the wrapping) of some of your favorite Mexican foods (Mexican in name only…and that is also suspect.
What the devil are we talking about? I guess you will want to check out the show for all the delicious details.
And now – all the plugs and links to fill your fajita!

The Nebraska Men’s Basketball Team is 3-0 to open conference play. That hasn’t happened since the Big 8 days in 1975-76. I wasn’t even alive then. Think about THAT!
In Episode 19, we talk about this unexpected and unbelievable beginning to the conference slate for Nebrasketball. We also talk about the sad ending to the Nebraska football season in the Music City Bowl. They can’t all be winners. Washington knows that (and I hope Alabama learns the lesson). But Nebraska’s loss to Tennessee had some bright moments.
Also there is some recruitnik talk, as the Huskers received a commitment during Thursday’s Husker basketball win. And this weekend could prove to be a big one on a national stage this weekend.
All the plugs deserving of a 3-0 Nebrasketball team in conference play.
