The Huskers are not overhyped

After two wins over cupcake teams, the Huskers came out Wednesday night looking a little sluggish. They turned it on at times in a way that showed they really are as good as their press. This team looked like an NCAA tournament team. They looked like a Top 25 team. They looked like a team Big Ten teams should worry about.

James Palmer Jr is still very special

The man that the Huskers are expected to lean on this season struggled mightily to start the game against the Pirates. In fact, he went 0 for his first 8 from the field. He finished the game on a 7 for 12 run. It should be pointed out that even when he was missing, he found a way to score thanks to going to the rim. In addition to seven field goals, he was also 13 of 18 from the free throw line.
