NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament Nebraska vs Northwestern Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

To be clear I want Bryce McGowens to do whatever he deems to be best for him and the chances that he comes back is slim to none in my opinion unless his brother says he would come back as well. If his brother says he would come back then it might bump it up to 49% chance that Bryce comes back to Nebraska.

Whether he comes back for another year or jumps for the NBA, I still think McGowens will spend a season or two in the G-League just so he can physically develop. The last mock draft had him going toward the end of the first round. Generally, if you aren’t considered a lottery pick then it really becomes a crap shoot on where you end up getting picked.

Heck, you never know. I mean Dalano Banton ended up getting drafted and everybody was surprised about that one. So who really knows.

Bryce has all of the skills needed for the next level. I think it is just a matter of time as he builds his body.

Regardless, I hope success finds him whether he decides to stay or jump to the NBA.

Morning Mash: The QB run convo, Whip's work, and Frost's most telling comment yesterday
Sometimes the hours slip away and the morning mash becomes a midday mash, but when you've committed to a title you stick with it. We already had the posters made for "Morning Mash" after all.

Let's proceed with thoughts that could be had at 8 a.m. or, say, over the noon hour.

After squandering big lead to end season, Hoiberg stresses appreciation for players
There would be no stunning run. As it turned out, they wouldn't get one.

The Huskers outhustled Northwestern for 20 minutes, picking up right where they had left off on a surprising three-game winning streak near season's end. But all of Wednesday's first-half effort was basically erased from the chalkboard over a span of 3 minutes in which Northwestern ratted off 14 straight points to cut a 15-point Nebraska lead to 1 with 12:26 left.

Why Mitch Trubisky will be the biggest free agency winner this year -
The NFL free agency period doesn’t begin until March 16, but we already know who the big winner is going to be. Mitch Trubisky won’t be the highest paid signing this year, but a dearth of QB talent and plenty of needy teams will cause him to earn far above his market value.

Does My Son Know You? - The Ringer
Waiting for a PET scan is pretty boring. The nurse brings you down a long hallway with a bunch of rooms on each side. Each is just big enough to fit a chair and a sink. They all look the same except for the picture on the wall. I’ve seen a pond, a lake, and some mountains.
