08:27 AM ET 06.10 | The fans have spoken. The Nebraska athletic department is preparing to shake up and air out the atmosphere in the Devaney Center for men's and women's basketball games. "You're going to see a change," Marc Boehm said. ... A postseason survey of season-ticket and single-game ticket holders indicated about 70 percent rated ticket prices, concession prices and customer service at games excellent or good. But the current in-game atmosphere drew many suggestions for improvements, Boehm said. "People like the band, we found out," he said. "People like the spirit squad members. They want to see them more. And people want more song selection from the band. So we're going to limit the canned music. Not all of it, but we're going to focus on getting away from the NBA-type style and be more collegiate."

Does Nebraska play basketball??

FWIW, I went to a NEB BB game when I was in Linclon on business about 3-4 years ago. 0-6 isn't far off. Walked in, sat 30 rows high at mid-court & got to see COC score 19 points in a half. The place was dead. I think it's going to take HW and his creativity to "smoke" out any energy and excitement in this place.

Bruce Pearl may be looking for a job. As shady as he is, he can bring excitement to a dead program. Maybe UN should bring him in.

LOL, bud......and bring on the atty's baby.

No way in Hel! I'll post anything about Big 10 football being #1.....momma taught me never to lie. Even though I have told a fib a few times in life, never anything as big as that lie would be!!!!

Besides, I've copy-writed the statements "Indians #2, baby", "Indians #3 baby", and "Indians in last place, baby". Unless you are intent on giving up on updating FN on said Cleveland's positon in base ball after June 12th, 2011 you will have to have expressed written consent from WPS, and the law firm of Bidch, Moan, and Cry will negoatiate a settlement that will include a hold-harmless clause from any current and past patent or copy-write infringements on one said "BuckeyeBoy 9".

Good retort my friend. The truth is your copyrighted phrases are going to be getting a lot more use than mine in the near future. I fear reality has set in for the young Injuns and the slide to oblivion has begun.
