Doc Sadler has been busy in his first couple of weeks as new Nebraska men's basketball coach. Get Aleks Maric back? Check. Get Jamal White back? Check. Spread as much good will as possible in as little time as possible? Check. Get fans talking about basketball right before football season? Check. Well, maybe not talking a lot about basketball. This is Nebraska after all. Football is, was, and always will be king, but I believe - make that I know - there's a spot for Nebraska basketball in the hearts of NU fans. We saw it in the early 1990s before Danny Nee wore out his welcome. The Devaney Center was rocking back then. Doc and his guys may never make a Final Four, but I know they will make things interesting, if not this year then maybe in 2007-08. In this state when you say T.O. everybody knows you're talking about Tom Osborne, not the other T.O. of the Dallas Cowboys. Someday when you say "Doc," everyone will know you're talking about NU basketball.
