So Long to the SWAC...Well, Almost....
PYB was pleased to see that the Nebraska basketball team put together a legitimate non-conference schedule for the first time in 15+ years. Adding some matchups at home against peer teams will add more fans to the seats than another meaningless 25-point win over a hapless SWAC squad. We'd rather watch NU lose an early-season matchup and learn something that will benefit the team in March than pound Alabama A&M 72-47.
In a week where Doc Sadler lost out on the most hyped in-state recruit in years, the shift in scheduling philosophy is a big win for everyone.
