During Saturday afternoon’s Michigan State-Nebraska men’s hoops games, BTN cameras gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Nebraska’s new Hendricks Training Complex. The 84,000 square-foot facility is home to the men’s and women’s hoops teams and wrestling team, and it is remarkable. Watch our quick feature of the impressive complex that cost nearly $19 million now. It’s safe to say the Huskers are taking basketball, both men’s and women’s, very seriously after watching this piece.

Predictions. Everyone has them, and rarely do people prognosticate correctly. As the saying goes, that’s why they play the game. I’ve been burned with predictions several times, the most recent one coming when I said Illinois was for real and a Rose Bowl contender. We all know how that turned out! With the calendar flipping to 2012 Sunday, it’s time to offer up some more educated guesses, posted in a multiple choice test format to give it a different wrinkle. Feel free to post your answers or fill in your “other” selection in the comment box. The predictions are listed in chronological order and, just for clarity, many of the football ones take into account likely early NFL departures.
