A quicky in the sack with Lindy

Recommended Posts

Spent a few minutes resting during yesterday's chilly day with my annual issue of Lindy's college basketball magazine. These are the few facts gleaned this year. 1. For the first time I can recall, NU was picked to finish dead last in the conference and no player was mentioned anywhere in the magazine other than on the one page allotted to us. Our article was written by Lindsey Willhite, a person I have never heard of, rather than the usual OWH writer. The only other place we were mentioned was for the November 16 game vs St. John's where it said Tim Miles had a chance to pick up a much needed victory. 2. St. John's backcourt was rated the 4th best in the nation. Mitch Richmond, the old K-State star is now coaching the guards according to head coach Chris Mullin. 3. Michigan State is rated the # 1 overall team and picked to win the NCAA. 4. Tum-tum Nairn's first name is Lourawls. Many years ago my spouse and I went to Lake Tahoe to see what it was like and were trapped in a casino during sudden blizzard conditions. We wandered into a lounge and found that we were the only people there other than the headliner so we got personally serenaded by....that's right, Mr. Lou Rawls

How is it possible for all of us to be so geeked about this year when everyone is projecting us to finish last or second to last....  Is it our rose colored glasses or what.??  Just seems very weird.

Pretty easy - when you see the recruiting rankings we have built up on this team, with key parts becoming healthy or eligible - it's easy to be optimistic. 

But if you just see a team who lost starters to transfers and graduation, and young guys transferring also... or our guys we thought would be healthy aren't healthy... Well, you get it.

because based on recruiting rankings, this is the best team we've ever had. a lot of unproven players though.

In '89-'90, the Huskers went 10-18.

 

In '90-'91, the Huskers were picked to finish dead last in league by basically every media outlet.

 

Instead, they went 26-8 and were a 3 seed in the NCAA tourney.

 

That's how it's possible for all of us to be so geeked about this year when everyone is projecting us to finish last or second to last.

41 Days to B1G Basketball: Blue Ribbon’s Big Ten Predictions Revealed

Michigan State is once again at the top.

"There’s also a recurring theme with most predictions not seeing Nebraska or Rutgers escaping the basement of the Big Ten. That could prove problematic for Nebraska if that actually does happen. While it was debatable if Tim Miles was or wasn’t on the hot seat, with Nebraska now set to bring in a new athletic director, Miles needs results in a hurry. Even if he’s a fan favorite, the Cornhuskers haven’t had much to show the last several seasons in Lincoln and he could be out of a job if things don’t improve."
