Watching a game with something on the line is stressful

85 posts in this topic

Are we sure we aren't okay being the lovable losers forever? There is a certain zen quality about going to games with few expectations and little on the line.

 

Watching the UNO game tonight reminded me of how stressful our NCAA run was 3 years ago.

 

With husker football and basketball the way they have been I almost forgot what it was like to live and die on every play... Stressful!

I feel terrible and am mad and sad. I can't remember the last time Nebrasketball made me feel intense emotion... Was probably no sit Sunday

 

I don't want Miles fired... But I don't want him to be the head coach anymore either...

Watching that game just made me mad about our in state recruiting. You can't convince me that Hahn kid from Fremont wouldn't be nice on this team. A 6'8" dead eye shooter? Or Hollins as another senior leader? Or freaking mike daum? A sophmore from the summit league can't possibly be THAT big of a surprise if he's already that good.

Daum didn't show anything that suggested he'd be what he's become. Credit to him. He took advantage of his redshirt year and became a great player.

I'm hoping he kills it at SDSU next year, NBA scouts suggest he showcases his game vs. higher competition and he comes to Lincoln as a grad transfer for his senior year.

Yeah Hahn didn't just catch and shoot, he had to make his own shot a couple times.

 

First time I had seen daum go off... No words

Fair enough, Kimball is pretty outside of my orbit. But what about Mitch Hahn? That kid can freaking shoot. Why the hell wouldn't we want a guy who can do that?

McVeigh isn't that big...

I think he can too. But so far, his stats are proving me wrong...

Is it reasonable to expect high school players who are good at shooting to be good in college... Or get better?

Oh, he can shoot 'em. He can shoot 'em all day and all night. Making more than 18% during the actual games is another story, though.

As somehow who follows UNO bball closely, Tra-Deon Hollins is the only player on their team that would be good enough to play at Nebraska and in the Big Ten.

As a central alumnus I didn't feel like he was a huge miss coming out of high school. Did you?

That's the question Cubs fans had been asking themselves for the past 100 years.

I somewhat agree. I think TDH would be a much better version of Taylor but he gets a lot of leeway at UNO giving up a lot of easy buckets but he does get a ton of steals as the trade off. I also think Thurman could be a bench player in the Big10 but not a star like he is at UNO. Do not think Hahn would even play, good shooter but no def and no other big contributions. Think Jack is much better than him overall.

How closely do you follow Nebraska and the Big Ten?

 

Thurman could play for Nebraska any day of the week.

as someone who watched tonight's game, thurman is nearly as good as morrow, hollins is light years better than evan taylor, and haun is just as good as fuller/mcveigh.

Tra-Deon Hollins has the quickest, craziest, hands of any guard I've seen in a while. Wicked athlete. Would take him on our team over Evan Taylor 8 days a week. And that's not just my Omaha Central alum side talking, that's brutal basketball honesty. The kid can play.

Morrow would eat Thurman's lunch. Haun might be just as good as Fuller, but you're underrating McVeigh. He's be the 10th man on the bench at best. Fuller's turned into a pretty decent defender in short spurts. Not sure Haun could do that.

Much better? At best it's a push. McVeigh is an AWFUL defender so I can't really be convinced Haun is worse.
