December 19th: Nebraska has the National Football Coach of the Year and (likely) the National Volleyball Coach of the Year entering 2018…does that cause other programs to elevate their levels?

-It’s not just the Scott Frost Effect…it’s the John Cook Effect, too, for winning 2 national titles in 3 years…if you’re Tim Miles/Darin Erstad/Amy Williams/others, you take note that Nebraska’s programs are on the uptick and you want to do anything possible to join that, right?

-University programs always have a sense of pride, but this month has brought an entirely new sense of pride for Husker athletics, and with the unity that the fanbase and state feels, is it possible that all the programs can elevate their play to also get on the uptick?
