Did you hear that noise Tuesday night? It was the sound of a jet taking off in downtown Omaha, on the CenturyLink Center runway, with 17,000 screaming fans aboard the Doug McDermott Express.

It was the sound of winning.

There's a noise building off in the distance, 60 miles to the west. Press your ears to the wind on a cold winter's night, and you can make out a distinct new sound.

It's coming from Pinnacle Bank Arena. There's a party going on.

Tonight, Indiana is the guest of honor as the Nebraska men's basketball team and Nebrasketball fans try to light a fire in the dead of winter. Husker fans, your job tonight is to sit down only when IU coach Tom Crean plops down in a chair. Hint: he never sits down.
