Their trip to Atlanta was their first real road game; others were at neutral venues. Their next three games are at Creighton and Indy, and then a home stint against Purdue (who destroyed Va last eve.).
Right. I’m just saying home losses to UC Riverside and Southern Utah to open the season, and an OT home win over Southern probably have a lot of fans scratching their heads. I really liked watching Hoiberg’s teams at Iowa State, especially players like DeAndre Kane and Monte Morris. This is looking like a real challenge for him at Nebraska.
Possibly. Nolan says one conference win, tied with Northwestern, which has returned to its rightful place at the bottom of the BT food chain. I think season predictions on Dec. 5 are pretty darn useless, though. I’m reminded of Pel’s team that was 12-1 when conference play started and then completely tanked. As much as I wish Nolan’s prediction that we win the SEC regular season was correct, it isn’t.
