uneblinstu's Post Game Chatter: Vol 9, Ed 29 - @ Minnesota

64 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

- One of the best games I've seen from Jacobson all year.

- Thought the effort was good coming out of the gate. They looked a lot more motivated and engaged than they did on Sunday.

- One of the better offensive rebounding efforts too.

 

***Then Minnesota went on their run***

 

- Lynch is a load. Good lord he's a tough matchup.

- Oh, a T on an assistant? With Eichorst on hand?

- The last 5 minutes of the first half were just brutal.

- How do they let things get away so quickly? NU was right there and then Minnesota just hammered 'em. This team shouldn't be this bad right now. It feels like the whole ball of yarn has completely unraveled.

- I don't know if it was coincidental or if it played a part, but this all went to pot after Lee's article...it looks like the players are carrying a burden they shouldn't be asked to carry.

- They looked like they were playing out the string. Just no pride. Mostly evident on the defensive end.

- I stopped the bullet points somewhere before the 2nd media timeout of the 2nd half...

AD said he would like to see the team making progress over the year.  I wonder if a 3-11 record over the last 14 games is heading in the right direction for a extension.  The team seems to look very lost on defense with all the easy scoring we have allowed.  Is that the players or the game plan?

 

I keep thinking how important Coach Smith was to the entire bb program and how it ran when he was here and how his team looks at South Dakota now.

This loss feels devastating compared to the others this year. Totally speechless.

Well we will most likely know soon enough.  If he gets the toss I would assume it would be after we lose in the B1G.

I'm 100 percent for Miles returning, but it's getting harder to forget that outside of one great run in Year 2 that we have been a bad team.

 

Miles has put together a really deep and talented roster by NU standards, but is he the guy who can turn a talented team into a really good team? It's a disappointing year, but I hope he gets next season to answer the question.

Depth. Depth. Depth. It's been the crutch of both Miles and Doc. You can't rely on just your top 2 key scorers to survive the long season and end on a strong note.

Doesn't help that Webster has to carry us offensively too. It's too much of a burden.

Tough league.  When you have flaws, these coaches will figure them out.  As good of X and O coaches as any league.  Probably the best.  We are very flawed.  You can see the paint getting closed off so much more as the season has gone on.  When you cannot shoot that is a problem.  The guys that can shoot are not good on defense.  It is a bitch.  We are flawed.  Unfortunately, that means we are also not very good.  No way to sugarcoat it.  Our margin for error is extremely slim.

Funny, us poor Husker fans were delusional enough to believe early on when the poor play was displayed that "nobody is going to want to play this team at the end of the year." But, since our magical second half run in year two we have gone 5-21 in the second half of Big Ten play. 5-21!

Boehm needs to be fired way before Miles. If he is allowed to be a part of ridding Miles and then making ANOTHER hire, I am done with this program. 

 

Keep Miles, fire Boehm. He's a joke.

I don't disagree on Boehm...but firing him is not going to bring more wins next year. But you're right...he should have zero in the coaching search when/if Miles is let go or leaves.

TBH I doubt he would have little to no input on the fire or hire. Someone else a little closer can shed some light on this though.

Recorded the game. Watched the 1st half and didn't have it in me to watch the second. Glad I didn't

It was like driving by the car accident.  I didn't want to look after half but I rubber necked it.

One can only hope.

I really felt like this was possible after the OSU win, possibly even after the MSU loss. But the reliance on Webster, Watson, and Taylor is really showing. Watson and Webster just look too gassed at this point. The Anton Gill injury is really showing right now.  I'm with you guys in that next Wednesday or Thursday, I'll be hoping and praying on a run in the tourney.

Don't think they are gassed.  Just lost the edge.   Not much to play for and going up and against teams that are on the bubble or are playing for something.

If we are truly gassed... I know it sounds weird and would never happen, but do we purposely rest the guys on Sunday against Michigan?

 

It'd be like watching the last week of the regular season of football with a team that's already made the playoffs, but might do us some good.

If we already know at that point we couldn't get the 10 seed, might not be a horrible idea.
