Early Break: What happens first: Nebraska football Big Ten Championship, or Nebrasketball Sweet 16 appearance?

  • One might say that the suggestion for Nebraska basketball should simply be winning ONE tournament game, but that still seems a lot easier than winning a Big Ten football championship. You know what would be cool, though? Having both things happen in the same year. Is that something that is 2-3 years away or more?
  • Basketball is a crapshoot, so Jake is going with that, since you can make the Sweet 16 as any seed in the dance. 12 seed? Many times in the Sweet 16. Don’t have to be an elite team to advance far in the Dance. You do, however, have to be pretty elite to win the Big Ten Championship (although Northwestern wasn’t elite last year and still had a chance to win the game)
