NBA: Chicago Bulls at Detroit Pistons Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Nebraska came close to getting swept by Iowa this weekend in baseball after getting curb stomped 17-9 in the second game. The one bright spot, the Huskers are still #1 in the Big Ten. Big Ten baseball stinks but that’s a rant for another time.

Remember being in a somewhat baseball conference? Maybe miss the Big 12 in this regard? I’ll let you folks discuss below.

On a higher note, the Nebraska men’s gymnastics team placed third in the NCAA championships this weekend. Their highest finish since 1999. We have writers on here that weren’t even born then. So, bully for those who have been living for this moment.

Finally, my goal is to get Fred Hoiberg on the front page of Corn Nation more times than Scott Frost within this calendar year. So expect a lot of articles with Fred from me for the foreseeable future. Someone keep track because I will not.

Anyway, on to flakes...
