ESPN Sales Pitch Series: Ranking High Major Conference Jobs By Recruiting Tiers

Big Ten



Tier 4: Nebraska Cornhuskers


One Big Ten coach summed up Nebraska's dichotomy effectively: "They're in the bottom tier when it comes to history and tradition. They're in the top tier when it comes to facilities and resources."


Depending on the coach who was polled and which aspects of the sales pitch he valued, Nebraska had a pretty wide array of rankings. As mentioned above, the Cornhuskers have several things going for them. They have elite facilities and consistently rank near the top of the nation in attendance despite going to one NCAA tournament in the past 23 years.


"They're going to sell out every home game. They have incredible facilities, it's an incredible basketball experience," one head coach said. "In an age of transfers, Nebraska can be a hidden gem. You can pick guys up the second and third time around and it's a phenomenal basketball experience. They care about hoops."


"They can lose 100 games in a row and there will still be 15,000 people in there," another coach said.
