Is the NCAA Tournament tougher to watch this year for Nebrasketball fans knowing your team should be in it?

-There were some great games on Thursday, as always, in the first day of the NCAA Tournament, but Jake couldn’t help but feel a little envy for the teams that were playing instead of Nebraska. Minnesota, a team that Nebraska split with this year, beat Louisville soundly in the first game of the day, to move to the Round of 32 on Saturday. Other games showed that Nebraska probably could have fared OK if they had not unraveled

-In most years, Nebraska fans enjoy watching the Dance because their team was a far cry from making it. But this year, they didn’t make it when they were supposed to. This is how it SHOULD feel when you miss the Dance. Anyone else feel that way?
