-Arbitrary Analytics put together a comparison of all Husker football head coaches all-time, and how they did against all 4 tiers of college football, and it’s alarming to see how things have fallen..not just in the wins and losses, but also in points scored and points surrendered. Nebraska’s climb to being respectable might not be that far, but their path to elite is miles away

-Also, Richard Pitino wasn’t unemployed very long—he’s now the head coach at New Mexico. Tim Miles will have to wait for his turn again.

-The Sweet 16 is great but also doesn’t have the same magic with all the madness that happens from the first 4 days of the tournament…which are you missing more today and yesterday?
