Miles Ahead: Nebraska in New York, Should Nebraska’s Loss to Michigan Matter When It Come to an NCAA Tournament Bid

When I first arrived in New York City last Wednesday I saw nothing but trash. It wasn’t just above the sink in the LaGuardia men’s room, it was everywhere, on every street corner in overstuffed white and black bags. It somehow managed to find its way to Madison Square Garden around last Friday, three minutes and 45 seconds into the Nebraska-Michigan basketball game. Three minutes … Continue reading Miles Ahead: Nebraska in New York, Should Nebraska’s Loss to Michigan Matter When It Come to an NCAA Tournament Bid

Miles Ahead: Roby’s Coming Out Party, Hate Will Never Win, Minnesota, Rutgers

Photo by Julia Nagy, Omaha World-Herald If there was a drinking game for every time a BTN announcer said, “I don’t think Isaiah Roby realizes how good he can be” during a Nebraska game, I would currently be in the hospital for liver failure instead of writing this post. I have yet to partake, but I’m sure there are some participants out there whose livers … Continue reading Miles Ahead: Roby’s Coming Out Party, Hate Will Never Win, Minnesota, Rutgers

Miles Ahead: Advocare Invitational, Roby Injury

“We have a team with a complete split personality,” Nebraska head coach Tim Miles said, following the 84-59 win over Marist in the AdvoCare Invitational. You said it, Tim. Not me. If  there’s one thing M. Night Shyamalan’s Split taught me it’s that split personalities are scary as hell for any party involved. It also taught me that Shyamalan can make a halfway-decent film after … Continue reading Miles Ahead: Advocare Invitational, Roby Injury

Millennials Ruined Nebraska Football

“Touchdown Oklahoma State.” This mundane call was all too familiar in Memorial Stadium on October 13, 2007. The first was bearable. The second concerning. The third just sad. The defeated crowd heard this call five times, along with a field goal score, before a mass exodus towards the exits. All before halftime. On homecoming weekend. 13-year old me was seated in south stadium watching this … Continue reading Millennials Ruined Nebraska Football
