Nebraska coach Tim Miles agrees to tattoo bet with players

Thursday November 13th, 2014

Nebraska basketball coach Tim Miles is a fun-loving guy who is usually down for a good stunt, but he may have gotten in over his head with his latest move, as he has agreed to get matching shoulder tattoos with forward Terran Petteway if the Cornhuskers make the Sweet 16.

Miles will get Petteway's red star tattoos on each of his shoulders if the Husker's make the tournament's second weekend, which will probably not look as good on a 50-year-old man as they do on the team's leading scorer.

Sports Illustrated has Nebraska ranked 36th before the season begins, so while the team is certainly not a lock for the Sweet 16, stranger things have definitely happened.

Louisville's Rick Pitino made a similar bet with his team, resulting in a post-national championship tattoo in 2013.
