Flakes: Nebrasketball, Tim Beck, and Hangovers

The Huskers women's basketball team takes on Maryland tonight. We also look at what people are saying after Nebrasketball's hot start to Big Ten play and look at the science of hangovers. Well, at least one part of hangovers.

The women's basketball team takes on #3 Maryland tonight. The young Huskers have had a decidedly rough start to the season but, like the men, are beginning to find their stride in conference play. They have played their first two opponents very well, although ultimately falling in both games by small margins. Tonight will be a big test and a big measuring stick for the women. I don't expect a win, but let's see if they can keep this margin inside of 25 points.
