What If Wednesday: What if Nebrasketball had made the NCAA Tournament in the 2017-18 season?

-We welcome back our producer, Alex Baker, for this segment—and it’s an interesting question. Tim Miles was looking for a contract extension following a few rough seasons, and this team ended up finishing 4th in the B1G regular season, capped off with a big home win against Penn State to clinch a bye in the B1G Tournament. However, Michigan beat them in the B1G Tournament, and the rest was history

-Nebraska somehow fell to a 5-seed in the NIT and lost to Mississippi State, and Miles only got one year added to his contract—a death wish. What would have changed if he had simply made the Dance in what was a very weak year in the B1G, hurting the Huskers from getting big conference wins?
