The Big Ten says they’ll let some fans into games next week for the conference tourney…optimism rises for next year, right? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-The B1G announced that 8,000 fans per game will be able to attend for the men’s tourney, and 2,500 for the women’s tourney

-This may catch you all by surprise, but maybe not. Have to think it helps for next year’s attendances..

Nebraska has appeared in one B1G conference championship game in their 10 years in the league…what is a fair expectation for the next 10 years?

-Here’s a rundown of how many appearances teams have had in the B1G Title game in the 10 years of its existence:  Ohio State (6), Wisconsin (6), Michigan State (3), Northwestern (2), Penn State (1), Iowa (1), Nebraska (1)

-For all the praise we’ve given Iowa in beating Nebraska the last 6 years, they still have the same amount of conference title appearances as the Huskers. So what’s a proper expectation for the next 10 years?

 

Bill Moos wants the fire from the past to come back to Nebraska football..and what’s wrong with that?

-The answer should be: NOTHING is wrong with that. But, as Sip points out in his latest column, hiring Jason Peter and Jay Foreman as volunteers is viewed as a ‘ho-hum’ move, instead of widespread excitement

-Does that kind of fire still exist in college athletics? It should….you wonder what the locker rooms are like at Clemson, Alabama, and more….

-It was Senior Night for the 5th-ranked Hawkeyes, and the 2nd game for Nebrasketball without Teddy Allen with the program -Nebraska hadn’t faced Iowa yet this year, so it was their first chance to play Luka Garza and company. Last year, they split the series. What was the mood after last night’s game? Jake promised to chug a Bud Light tall boy during the show if Nebraska won

Rutgers 3/1/2021

Terrance Badgett, Erick Strickland, DP and Connor Happer discuss a 72-51 Nebraska drubbing of Rutgers.

Sound the alarms! Nebrasketball wins another game! Let’s get weird in March

-Teddy Allen didn’t score any points and only played 10 minutes, but Nebraska still found a way to win against the Gophers. The seniors (Thor, Kobe Webster, Derrick Walker) were all very, very good in the game, as the Huskers won 78-74

-For Minnesota, what a terrible look for Richard Pitino. They had VERY winnable games, back-to-back, against Northwestern and Nebraska to try to confirm their belonging in the Big Dance, and lost both.

-Also…what in the world happened with the Husker women’s game against Michigan State that was canceled at the last second?

DP & Stephens: Husker Hoops/Fred Hoiberg

Head Coach Fred Hoiberg spoke to the media on Friday.

We play those sound bites and give our reactions.

DP & Stephens: Steve Sipple, Lincoln Journal Star

We call and talk Steve Sipple after Nebraska won their first conference game since January 7th, 2020.

  • What did yesterday’s win tell you about Fred Hoiberg?
  • How hard is it to travel cross country
  • Do we blame the conference for doing this?

Nebrasketball’s game at Purdue was postponed…are fans still intrigued by the season or disinterested in it already?

-Fred Hoiberg’s squad is on a 21-game losing streak in conference play. They were blown out by Ohio State and played Michigan State close, but are 0-4 in B1G play on the season

-The entire conference is full of good teams, and they could have an incredibly large amount of teams that make the Dance this year. Knowing that and where Nebraska is at in the rebuild, are you still in or checked out for the season?
