Did you ever think you’d see a day at Nebraska where it’s BASKETBALL that has the most-heated rivalry of any sport?

-It’s a great thing and a sad thing at the same time; this athletic program is obviously built around football, and fans sure do dislike Iowa/Wisconsin/others, but not to the extent that Nebraska basketball fans hate Creighton. Think about that for a second—the BEST rivalry currently at Nebraska is for a program that is the only Power 5 team to never have won an NCAA Tournament game. Fascinating

-The hatred there has built over many years though—and as we’ve discussed with football, it’s still going to take some time to get to that level of a hated rivalry like Nebraska/Creighton. Will Nebraska/Iowa ever touch the level of what Nebraska/Creighton is?
