NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Indiana Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports


You give me hope with a win over Purdue and then lose at home to North Dakota. I feel it Nebrasketball, I feel it.

Though, I should have known better. This team is still going through growing pains. It will continue to surprise us with upsets and losses all season long. They’re good, but not good enough to be consistent enough to make us know what they should be doing.

Anyway, Christmas is right around the corner and Hanukkah started on Sunday. I hope you all have a nice and safe holiday with your family and friends if you celebrate.

Until then, enjoy today’s flakes and give us your favorite holiday meal in the comments below. I dare you to try and make the title meal and send us a pic of it.
