A brief look at the upcoming season

Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

Hi folks,

I’m one of the new basketball guys here at Corn Nation. I will hopefully be giving you somewhat entertaining takes on Nebrasketball for the upcoming season.  If not, I am sure the Corn Nation elders will be more than happy to give you another ritualistic sacrifice to the Big Ten basketball gods.

I will also be tweeting a lot of the games so if you like updates on play and random bits of trivia and history feel free to follow me.

But for starters, here is a rundown of the 2015-16 Nebrasketball Schedule. Following this, I will be doing a breakdown once or twice a week on all the opponents leading up to the season.

Big Ten Conference Play

Wednesday, December 30th – Northwestern (H)

Saturday, January 9th – Rutgers (A)

Saturday, January 23rd – Michigan (H)

Saturday, February 6th – Rutgers (H)

- Yep, they're on here again.

Wednesday, February 10th – Wisconsin (A)

-  Biggest question is whether Coach Ryan will retire at the end of the seaon
