    So . . . I'm expecting to find some Anton Gill information when opening this thread this morning. But all it has to offer, in recent posts, is that Jacob is a Jaysker? Can we keep this thread on topic?

    Dribble, dribble.
  7. @CornNation How about you write a personal check to pay Pelini and Eichorst all that NU now owes them??

    The point is to discuss Nebraska basketball and get the pulse of some Nebraska fans. I just thought it was funny. I considered not mentioning anything, but thought it was fairly harmless.

  11. Y'know, Glynn Watson kinda reminds me of ...

    We were both wearing shoes. I'm aware what he is listed at. I was responding to LK1. My overall point is you can compare to Kansas' dual-PG backourt if you want, but Graham is bigger, stronger and more experienced than Allen is coming in as a true freshman. Probably a lot to ask of him early on. And Glynn is even smaller.

    It's probably a bit early to start a Zaire Wade class of 2021 thread, but a person can dream.

  14. Eichorst Out

    The first Schlesinger TD was off an option look to the right where they trapped Sapp, Aaron Graham cut blocked Ray Lewis, Wilks pulled from the RG and took out the SLB, and Schlesinger hit the hole between the RT and TE. The second TD was a classic trap play off an isolation look, not an option play, where Sapp was trapped again. (I still remember a UCLA defensive tackle that year saying that he wasn't that impressed with Nebraska's offensive line since they didn't seem physically dominating to him - what he didn't realize was that he wasn't blocked on a lot of plays, because he wasn't worth blocking.) When Nebraska under Osborne ran an option play, the fake to the fullback was just that, a fake. They did that so as to eliminate exchange problems (so you wouldn't have to decide instantly whether to give the ball or pull it back), to let the QB get to the edge faster, to allow the FB to concentrate on his blocking assignment on the play, and for the offensive line to block it differently since it was most often a trap. All three TDs against Miami were absolute things of beauty. My favorite personal memory is the first one, I was sitting in the south end zone with a friend. On third and short we went with 2 tight ends and a power I formation, Miami responded by taking out a safety and bringing in an extra tackle. My friend said that we'd run this formation twice now and not gotten anything. I said we were going to run play action to the tight end. At the snap of the ball, I am yelling "he's open, touchdown" before the pass was even thrown. The great part was the Miami fan sitting by us gave us a look with his mouth open like he was thinking, how the hell did these guys know what was coming. My friend just said, "we've seen them play a lot."
  15. That's fine. I didn't say that the details didn't matter. I said that the totality of the game is what matters. Offensive plus defensive proficiency.
  16. But there is a huge difference between shooters and scorers. If scorers settle for jump shots then they probably aren't scoring as much as you would like. Too many long two's lead to a lower percentage shooting and fewer balls in the basket and no reward of an extra point when they do go in. The details do matter. It makes the difference between being consistently good or hit and miss. It's the difference between a poor season and a good season or the difference between a good season and great season.

    Dwayne Wade posted a photo with the team on his Instagram and it sounds like he played some pick up games with our guys today. Also thanks Coach Miles for showing him and his wife so much love Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. RT @ezlusztig: @BenSasse There's still a sizable population that thinks the Trump Takeover was some kind of accident. Nope. Exhibit A: clue…

  19. @clayphillips27 Why would they need to be fast and young?

  20. Offseason Potpourri

    Well, Nebraska is "fully vested" in its investment in the Big Ten regime. There are many levels to this...
  21. Offseason Potpourri

    Upon closer evaluation, it does appear that each one of those players are wearing a Big Ten logo on their uniforms. Robin just might be right about this one...
  22. I understand how it works having played the game for a long time, but I don't tend to get overly concerned with the distinction between shooter & scorer as long as the "team concept" allows for good blend of scoring & defensive proficiency in totality. I'm not one to be too caught up in analytics of a long two versus a three as some might be (for instance). I want the ball to go in the hoop. Build momentum. Get a stop. Keep it going. That's the game of basketball. Swings of emotion followed by execution on the court.

  24. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    Lots of season left to get a whole lot better. Watching PSU at Iowa, and my thought is NU had better get a whole lot better by mid-November to have even a hope of a chance.
  25. Again, in theory. For NU to give itself the best chance, they need a diversity of options. If you don't have guys that can fill it up from outside, it becomes much more difficult for your "scorers". I think they've got those guys. I'm not yet sure they have the guys on the perimeter. We've struggled every which way to put the ball in the hoop the past three years. We need more of both, really.
  26. Sure. But I think it matters not how the ball goes in... as long as NU scores.
