I love sports and watch pretty much any form of competition. If I understood Rugby, it would be my favorite sport. I am a Husker fan through and through and will cheer for them in everything (Did you know we have a successful women's bowling team? Now you do.) and hope our basketball team starts stepping it up a notch. College Football is amazing and really is the best season in all of sports.

Otherwise I cheer for the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New Orleans Hornets... So yeah, maybe living in small town Nebraska away from any professional teams made for some strange team choices... It happens.

B1G Rising: Getting Out of the Basketball Cellar

How does a team go from worst to... slightly above worst? Get a new coach, maybe snag a new arena, and claim a pelt. The rise of this year's cellar dwellers and the fall of Purdue.

#Nebrasketball: Winning at Home

It was my first taste of basketball at Pinnacle Bank Arena, and it was a good one. Nebraska overcame its own deficiencies and won a tough game over a ranked Ohio State. Some thoughts on the arena, the game, and my experience at the new digs.
