Tonight, we'll see the Nebraska Cornhuskers make their first appearance in league play as a member of the Big Ten Conference. Wisconsin is on the slate, first in a slew of games versus ranked opponents (6 of 8), to start things off.
Those Big Ten folks sure do want to show us some hospitality, don't they?
Phil Mitten, from Bucky's 5th Quarter, was kind enough to do a quick exchange for us prior to this evenings game.
Hopefully with some good Q+A's, we'll start to get some idea of these shiny new opponents we're up against on the court. Although, Wisconsin isn't exactly a new foe for the Big Red. Read more on that later today (god willing, and provided that my toddler lets me have more than 12 minutes of "me" time), in our season update article.
