I posted this in the offseason thread, but this is probably worthy of its own thread.

What are tickets for people who aren't in the Portsmouth, VA area?

 

Norm is channeling his inner @fauxpelini for that one...

Yikes... I know he said he was willing to do the dirty work, but that stat line, as cwg said, isn't going to impress too many people.

 

Here is to a better one next time out Tai!  You got this!

He actually showed okay on the offensive side of things.  My question is, how did he do defensively?  That seems to be his ticket into the NBA.   Given the minutes played, he must have been doing something good.

Wowza.  Those games represent his Freshman to Sr year here to a T.  Improved each and every game (year) while really breaking out the last game (year).

 

Great job Tai!  Get it because you deserve it!

Tai might go down as the biggest bust to must have in Husker History.

 

The work that this kid put in deserves more basketball.  Thank you Tai for everything.  You embody the work ethic that I wish all players had.

Tai career is the DVD you play to every incoming freshman, not to tuck n turn tail, not to quit when times are hard but to work like crazy on your craft, and build a legacy at a university not just a nice career. When I think of Husker Basketball (I'm 28) i think of Belcher, Lue, Maric, Anderson, Shields, Uber, and now Webster. Hopefully the players we have now we'll strive to be among them

Some of us supported Tai from the beginning and although frustrated at times, understood he was a work in progress.  His biggest issue to overcome was the overhype that he received.  But the kid started most of his freshman year on a team that qualified for the NCAA tournament.  But of course, there are some who will say we won despite his performance.

Yeah, the Uber kid was pretty good.  Some say better, even, than Lyft.

I think of Charles Richardson too... It felt like he was here for 10 years

 

but I definitely got to throw Petteway into that list

Is playing in the D League considered finding a spot in the NBA?

Here is the phrase Robin uses:  "battling for an NBA roster spot."
