Tubby after Nebraska: 'We were horrible'


Two big steps forward, one huge step back.

That's the fallout from the Gophers' 53-51 loss to Nebraska Wednesday night, a showing which once again has some Minnesota fans calling for Tubby Smith's removal.

Minnesota, coming off wins against Indiana and Penn State, dropped to 1-7 on the road in the Big 10 this year.

The stats from last night are eye-opening. Among the best being shared Twitterverse:

Smith, meanwhile, was asked if Nebraska celebrating Senior Night rattled his team. The coach didn't dodge the question, telling Omaha.com: "It must have. We were horrible."

The bright side? Nebraska fans stormed the court like they had just defeated the best team on the planet.
