Early Break: Could the B1G West be led by Nebraska and Purdue consistently soon and years to come?

  • The World-Herald’s Sam McKewon wrote about the division and how it’s stronger than it ever has been, and points to commitments to high-level coaches by Nebraska and Purdue, and even though Wisconsin, Iowa, and Northwestern have been the most recent winners of the division, if he had to buy bonds over the next 10 years—he’d take Purdue and Nebraska
  • Is that how you see this playing out? And how soon does that scenario come to light for the first time? Or are Iowa and Wisconsin fans already laughing at us again that we think they’ll just fade into the background, yet they’ll keep winning the division?

  • Doc Sadler never made much of the Creighton game while head coach here…I wonder what he says to Hoiberg about it
