  1. Not considering Nebraska yet for the bubble?

  2. I added Nebraska to consideration in today's update- it'll be tough for them considering how weak the Big Ten is this year. They only three wins against RPI groups 1 and 2, and have 0 games against group 1 and 2 against group 2 left. If they can go 5-1 down the stretch and knock off one of MSU/Purdue/Michigan/OSU in the Big Ten Tournament they's be in a good spot.
