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

So, elephant in the room.

Nebrasketball fans across the nation have been waiting to hear about Tim Mile’s future since the the final buzzer of the loss to Wisconsin.

Bill Moos decided to wait. First to see what happened to the team on Selection Sunday. Now, until the Huskers are done playing in the NIT.

That Could be this Wednesday. That could also be after the championship game on April 4th.

Both scenarios can totally change what Mile's future holds. If he loses early, he could be gone. If he wins the title or even a few games, he might be here next year.

I’ve stayed away from speculating for awhile and I’m glad I did. Things change in this world on a daily basis. A week ago I had no idea that Nebraska would win two games in the Big Ten Tournament. I also had no idea they would play Wisconsin so well. Especially with a depleted roster.

Now, a team that looked hopeless a month ago has some life to it.

It’s time to sit back and be patient for a few days or a couple of weeks on the issue. The team is in the post season. Let’s enjoy that for what it’s worth. Those men have deserved it. Cheer them on.

Anyway, on to flakes...
