NCAA Basketball: Tennessee State at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

So, Nebrasketball isn’t exactly pretty yet but it’s getting there. Last nights win against Tennessee State was not pretty but it was a win. Fred is still trying to figure out the lineup and rotation. This might take time as there are a fair amount of new players on the roster this season.

Luckily for us, the Big Ten hasn’t exactly been looking the best either this season. Which can only bode well for a team that is still trying to figure things out. I’m not saying we will win the conference, oh no. Just that we might fare a little bit better than some would have expected.

Or, maybe I’m just trying to put lipstick on a pig?

It’s still early and I have faith in Fred.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving tomorrow, folks.
