Nebraska men’s basketball team is currently 2-0. The two wins have been blowouts. Neither team they beat had any chance of winning at any point during the game.

It’s early in the season to say what will happen to the team. They could easily fall apart at some point and the season could go down the toilet. A lot can change the trajectory of a team at any time.

However, if you have seen these two games, you would have noticed that this is turning into a special team. This is seven years of work, recruiting, teaching, and talent coming to a head.

This is easily the best team that Nebrasketball fans have seen in a very long time. They have the talent, discipline, and leadership to take on most of the teams they will face this year. Challenges will come for them and I do not see them backing down.

Many across the college basketball landscape are expecting something from Tim Mile’s crew this year, but I don’t think they know what yet. If anything, they’re cautiously optimistic on the potential of this team.

Personally, my confidence in this years team is growing. I knew they would be a good team, but I didn’t expect them to be playing this well this early. It’s more than just blowing out lesser team. It’s how they are blowing these team out. These players are playing like they are on a mission.

As long as they stay healthy and keep their heads high, they can challenge the top teams of the Big Ten and bring home an NCAA Tournament win.

It’s no longer a dream folks. This year, Nebrasketball is going to make some history.

Anyway, on to flakes...
