Roundball success is coming and it will dominate

For far too long, football has dominated this site.

Just look at our logo. It’s of a football player (assuming defensive) throwing bones. This, like many other SB Nation logos, assumes that you will get football coverage and that will be the dominate subject to breach our blogging walls. Poor product placement has painted this blog into a corner.

It is now time. Time for basketball to take it’s rightful place and challenge football for supremacy in Nebraska Athletics. Nebrasketball will no longer take second place to football.

Right?

Well, we have some very nice basketball changes coming your way here soon and hopefully you will enjoy it.

Anyway, on to flakes...
