Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne fired Doc Sadler today, a move that surprised no one. Sadler went 12-17 overall and 4-14 in the Big Ten, culminating with a loss to Purdue in the first round of the Big Ten tournament. Nebraska moved into a state-of-the-art, $18 million practice facility last fall. And the program will move into a $344 million arena that is expected to open for the 2013-14 season, as the school has experienced a rebirth of its basketball facilities.
