Nebrasketball: Fan Pulse Week 4 and Men’s/Women’s AP Poll Results

After the start of his first win streak, is confidence even higher in Nebrasketball heading into week 4?

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Nebraska vs Rutgers David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Fan Pulse Results

Confidence is up for the second week in a row... but only by a margin that most political polling would admit is just outside the margin of error.

Overall, three programs stayed put at 100% confidence, while four other programs dropped by double digits, highlighted by Northwestern’s almost 21% plummet.

Ranchbabe already covered this, but I am going to again. Your Thanksgiving side to reject is none other than:

But seriously, GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE IS DISGUSTING AND NEEDS TO STOP BEING A DISH SERVED AT THANKSGIVING!!!! Might I recommend a unique and fresh take, such as:
Guac/Avacado Toast
Gator Bites
Conch Fritters
Hush Puppies
Lake Michigan/Superior Whitefish Pate
Crab Dip
Maryland style Crab Cakes
A Little Caesar’s Hot and Ready
Baby food, such as mashed carrots
Dog Food
Cat Food
The spoiled leftovers from dinner over a week ago in the back of the fridge
Basically literally anything you can think of that is somewhat edible if you’re getting the theme here.

Disagree with me? Please let me know how wrong I am in the comments!
