Nebraska basketball Head Coach Tim Miles talked about his displeasure with how the Big Ten schedules its games at the Omaha World-Herald Big Red Today Breakfast this morning.

Miles' frustration comes from the Huskers lack of Saturday home games the past three seasons. The Huskers do not have any Saturday home games this season. 

"We joined the Big Ten, put $600-million of facilities, infrastructure in terms of parking structures, bars restaurants, tried to make a flourishing downtown element around our arena and we don't get a Saturday game," Miles said. "I just think that's wrong."

Miles said this is unfair to not only students, but fans that travel to see the Huskers play.

"We have fans that travel now," Miles said. "It's not like you go from Columbus, like 15 minutes across town. They come from North Platte in a plane."

Miles went on to say that he feels the Huskers aren't receiving the same treatment as other Big Ten programs when it comes to scheduling.

"We've got our questions on equity," Miles said. "I know that what Maryland gets is not what Nebraska gets, I can tell you that."
