    And on the point of the city of Lincoln spending all that money, looks like a pretty good win/win. The city is making a ton of money off of it and the school's athletic programs get to keep all of the BTN cash for other things that help the athletic department.

    I put a curse on their basketball team decades ago when they had a scrub off the bench pick a fight with Jeff Grayer that got them both tossed in Lincoln. Curse is in effect as long as I am alive since I still have not forgiven them that ****** move.

    Before the new arena NU was typically not in the top-40 for attendance, sometimes with paid bring less than 9k. And that's not butts in the seats...do they still get people buying them to gain better access to their dying football program?

    Those are probably true as they got the new facility bump but I don't trust and numbers from UNL after they completely fudged the FB "consecutive" sellout streak several years ago.

    It's sold. Those are the same numbers that say a half empty Carver is still harboring 1,000 more viewers than a packed Hilton. The way attendance is officially determined is a joke.

    Miles got another year I think because Riley got another year, if Riley flops the AD is gone with him and miles most likely. New AD gets to hire both jobs.

    As I remember their guy (Chris Logan) was about to sucker punch an ISU player from behind so Grayer stepped in and layed him out.

    When Johnny was asked about it after the game he said something to the effect that you try to tell your guys not to do it (get involved) but when it comes right down to it you don't want to play with a guy who doesn't have your back like that. Great response by Johnny.

    There is a blurb buried in here somewhere:

    And wasn't it Creighton that sent out a scrub to take Grayer out that game he messed up his knee getting undercut on a dunk?

    And they'll still never catch the B1G blue bloods. UNL - a good, not great B1G AD...forever. LOL
