Iowa’s struggles continued vs. Northwestern on Thursday night in the opening round of the Big Ten tourney, as the Hawkeyes lost for the sixth time in their last seven games. What’s wrong with Iowa?

Twitter: Brandon Ubel talks Huskers, Miles, Petteway

Former Nebraska forward Brandon Ubel experienced a lot during his time as a Husker. Not only did Nebraska move from the Big 12 to the Big Ten midway through his career, he played his final season for Tim Miles after spending the first three years under Doc Sadler. As a result, Ubel has an interesting perspective on Nebraska’s sooner-than-expected turnaround season. See my Twitter Q&A with him in this post.
