June 6th: Athlon Sports has spoken….and puts Nebraska at 3rd in the B1G West

-Part of Jake feels like this is a good thing, looking at the teams who have won the West in past 2 years. Iowa was projected as the 3rd or 4th best team in the West pre-season in 2015 and won the division, and Wisconsin was projected as dead before the year began and still found a way to win the division

-There is a lot of negativity around the program, but maybe this year is a chance for Nebraska to sneak under everyone’s radar and become the surprise team of the league. Are there questions? Absolutely. But there were questions with Iowa and Wisconsin. Surprise has been the key to the West title lately!
