NEBRASKA CORNHUSKERS: Knee-Jerk Reactions (1/22)

- List of positives that can be taken away from the worst home loss in Nebraska basketball’s recorded history:

- After what will be six years including a current 93-73 record, the best postseason run being to the NIT’s second round and being involved in the worst loss the program has seen in a century plus, how can Tom Osborne rationally keep Doc Sadler after this season?

- In hindsight, that Indiana floor rush looks kinda silly now. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

- Crick, Dennard, David and Jones should all do well at the NFL Combine. David could bump himself up to a late second round pick with an excellent showing. Jones could cement his status as a fifth or sixth-rounder.

- When few people, if any, know a commit’s name 10 days out from Signing Day, you can safely say they’re a reach.

- Nebraska needs Devian Shelton in this class, if only for legitimacy purposes.

- John Papuchis gets a 50 percent bump? He’s a solid coach, but that seems steep.

- Side note: Chancellor Harvey Perlman’s not a fan of the huge college football coach salaries these days.

- Of all the people expected to bring Dunkin’ Donuts to Omaha and the surrounding areas, that two ex-Huskers are doing it isn’t so surprising. That Kris Brown and Zach Wiegert are doing it, that’s the weird part.

You wouldn't describe that as a pointed slap in the face of disrespect towards a university chancellor, who is seemingly the embodiment of the university, at the very least the public voice (or face) of said university? I understand what seems to be your perspective, but you are never going to persuade me that harvey is anything but a detriment to DONU. I have disliked him for many years, and he isn't doing anything to persuade me otherwise.

He couldn't force two schools to vote the way he wanted?

doubtful. I would say his role was extremely minor. B1G didn't invite DONU because harvey is universally revered, or even minimally respected. if harvey is so good, what happened with the AAU thing?

Well, he did have a lot to do with that whole "Nebraska to the Big Ten" thing.

bit of a stretch to consider osbone rational. Is there anything that Harvey is a fan of? conversely, is there anyone that is a fan of Harvey's? every time he opens his mouth, he makes the university look horrible and inept.
