WOW, what a difference a coach makes. Keep up the good work Huskers. The women’s basketball team also beat USC this year.

Nice win for the skers. Coach Tim Miles and his team having fun doing what they love. It appears that all the players and recruits love this positive influencing coach. Next year all these kids and new recruits will be playing in the brand new Arena that is second to none in the land. I can already see that between Tim Miles demeanor and the addition of the new arena, that recruits will want to come to Nebraska where they can put their individual stamp on helping build the Husker program rather than just being another name at a institution that already has (10) 4 or 5 star players in the wings and just being a memo line in the local paper. What was the saying in that baseball movie ~ build it and they will come!
