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

Cornhusker baseball won the Arizona State Series.

Cornhusker basketball picked up a big man from France.

Cornhusker football picked up a Hawaiian receiver from Cal.

Not a bad weekend to be a Nebraska fan. The ASU series win bring Nebraska back into post season talk after a bad few weeks in the Big Ten. Forward Yvan Oueraogo is a much needed addition to Hoibergs team next year. Even if there is little footage or data from his playing day. To end this weekend, Scott Frost brings in a seasoned receiver that should add depth to an already depleted position.

It may not be earth shattering, but all of these developments are cogs in the machine that make an athletic department move forward. These steps should lead to better things down the road.

Also, go outside today. It should be nice out.
