Early Break: Nebrasketball as one of 3 profitable sports last year for Nebraska athletics, will it be sustainable?

  • The easy answer is ‘winning,’ but there’s more to it than that. No matter who the coach is, will people always support Nebraska basketball, even if they remain mediocre as they always have been?
  • Husker football was profitable and so was Husker volleyball last year—not a huge surprise for either—and there isn’t much concern about them staying in the black.
    • is basketball’s high attendance still because of new arena excitement (even though they’ve had some bad years)…or is it now a program that people want to see, no matter how good or bad they are?
