    I was afraid China was invading. But, seriously, not everyone is bold enough to brag about a 114 RPI, props to UNO for that.

    I thought the old USSR hockey team was getting back together.

    I'm surprised to find out somebody actually pays attention to UNO basketball. It's the first time all season I've spent even a moment thinking about them. It will probably be the last time too.

    Coach Hanson has developed a nice program at UNO. Has done a nice job since making the jump to DI to changes his recruiting. They came within a whisker of making the NCAAs last year until going down to ND State in the tourney final last year. My biggest fear is they would get a NCAA win before NU. Could see them getting a play-in game as a #16 seed and getting one that way. Would have an asterisk but would still be a win.

    Trash-talking aside, I would like to see Nebraska and Creighton play UNO every other year. Would add some local flavor to the non-conference schedule without being a big scheduling burden.

    All three of those teams were exhibition games. Midland in 2012, UNK in 2013 and Doane this year.

    Good thing some Nebraska fans with their glorious basketball history have the Summit League close by to feel superior about something. :D Some of these comments could easily be said by fans of at least 9 of our conference foes regarding dear old NU. Hopefully Fred can change that.

    Truth hurts but it’s been a much more watchable product in recent years than what has been played in Lincoln (and notice CU and Nebraska don’t want to schedule them). I hope it can become the place that local kids who aren’t seen as Big East/Big 10 worthy, end up going to instead of the Dakota schools.

    As I said in another post, I’d love to see local D1 worthy kids that CU/Nebraska pass on end up at UNO. If that becomes the case I’d like to see them both play UNO every year. Give the local kids a shot at the big boys who passed on them.

    i saw Omaha play in Wichita this year and was very impressed...they have a Wichita post product that Marshall gushed over, that a former coach did not see as worthy....:)

    And Creighton played Midland this year. I'm ok with them being exhibition games rather than regular season
