Let the BrieJay Whining Begin: Husker Hoops vs. Oregon at the Qwest Center

Today's Omaha World-Herald confirms the BrieJay fans worst nightmare: Nebraska will play a basketball game against Oregon this December at the Qwest Center, otherwise known as the home of UNO Maverick Hockey. (Despite the claims of some of the more elitist Creighton fans that CU somehow "owns" the Qwest Center.)

Also, Doc Sadler dismisses talk about him leaving the Huskers for the open Arkansas job (which looks like it's going to A&M's Billy Gillespie at this time):

"But since coming to Nebraska in August, the commitment our fans have made and our administration has made is even stronger than I first realized. My family and I are committed to Nebraska for a long time, and want to help build a program that some day the people of Nebraska can be very proud of. I'm talking about a team that expects to be in the NCAA tournament every year. That's my commitment, and it hasn't wavered one bit, nor will it."

I think you've got Creighton on the brain, Mike. :-) Doc's at Nebraska, and Creighton's Coach Altman is rumored for the Iowa job.

Oops! That's what I get for blogging early in the morning. I've corrected that error.

Though the more I think about it, Nebraska playing at the Qwest Center is NOT Creighton's biggest fear, it's Altman leaving. I don't think he's leaving Omaha though. He's got a good thing going for him at CU right now...

Don't get me started on Jaysker fans. I've had it with them. And Sadler already on the short-list for jobs, after leading his team to 10th place and a 105 RPI after ONE year..is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

As a UNO hockey season ticket holder, I find it more offensive that Crieghton fans play in MY building. Same thing no?
