      Don't say you're suprised by this result, disappointed, sure, but not suprised. Nova's an excellent, experienced team.

      B716_R1IYAAatoD.jpg

      Holy bricks! There's so much to say about this game...

      - I'll start here: There's a huge, huge, huge officiating problem in college basketball. This was as bad as I've seen and I've seen some doozies.

      - That T on Shavon was as absurd as I think I've ever seen. First off, it was a bad call on the initial foul, then when Shavon and Petteway reacted in frustration (and Shavon's not completely without fault, he let all the words fly, but he didn't direct them at the ref and by the time he turned around he appeared to be done), he stood, put his whistle back in his mouth and waited for Shavon to walk in his direction before he called the T. That's awful. Tom Eades, that's Karl Hess levels of ego. And then he apparently threw a "Boom" in there when he called it. I mean, how is that tolerated? I didn't see the on on Pitchford, but given how terrible the rest of the game was, I'm gonna assume it was sketchy, sketch.

    7. uneblinstu's Post Game Chatter: ed 8, Preamble

      4b314603b8.jpg

       

      I'll begin with the caveat that I had to leave at the first media timeout of the second half.

       

      - I'll start by saying that there was an awful lot to like about what we saw tonight. The other caveat to throw out was that Northern State wasn't very good. Maybe they'll hold up better when they get into their regular season, but they were just over matched tonight. Nebraska did what they were supposed to do vs. a team like that, which isn't something we haven't always been able to say in games like this. That's a good place to start.

    8. Post Game Chatter: Vol 8, Issue 12 - Samford

      We ran into a team that we couldn't out talent and/or out hero ball...the combination of their slowing trap and ability to sucker us into charges/bad calls basically took the wind out of our sails and set us up for all the tentative play in the second half. At one point with 3-4 minutes to go our guys passed the ball around the perimeter scared to shoot...like we were the ones with the lead.

    9. 01/16/2013 - Purdue Report Card

      Red Zone

      OFFENSE: C

      Let's be honest - Nebraska scoring 56 in the Big 10 is pretty good for this year's bunch.

      However, I can't go above an "average" grade on this because NU was pretty bad in the first half, shooting just 26% with 19 points.

      At the start, things looked promising, with Andre Almeida scoring four quick points.

      However, as the half drug on, and Dylan Talley/Ray Gallegos were non factors, along with Almeida disappearing, things went downhill.

      Luckily, NU shot 40% and scored 37 points in the second half, which would earn them an "A-", so we split it and give them a "C."

      Good grief, how good were Shavon Shields (18 points, 8 rebounds in 37 minutes) and Jordan Tyrance (10 points, 7 rebounds in 21 minutes) tonight? They are "Co-Players of the Game," simply because Tyrance deserves this and I highly doubt, the rest of his NU career, he gets mentioned for the award again. Had to give it to him once.

    10. uneblinstu's Post Game Chatter: Vol 8, Issue 14 - Northwestern

      810f6ef672.jpg

       

      Oh, man, where to start...

      - Kudos to Northwestern for clawing back, but that’s a game NU has no excuse for losing.
      - Demps ran circles around Watson at times. Almost literally, a couple of times.
      - NU got the total it usually does from their top three scorers. A little more from White and Webster, a little less from Shields. They’ve gotta have a third guy step up and tonight it was Benny. I thought when we got essentially 13 bonus points, that would be enough to bridge that gap, but it wasn’t, because…
      - NU really, really struggled to find Pardon, in only his second college game, on the offensive glass. Look, I get that they’re small, but they can’t lose guys like that. Not at this level. He had, what, 24 points in the second half? 14 coming on offensive putbacks? Can’t do that and expect to win. Just can’t. NU was up 12, 51-39 and gave up 42 points from there. Had a lead with five minutes left and only scored six points the rest of the way. That’s just not gonna cut it.

    12. 01/06/13 - Wisconsin Report card

      USC Game




      OFFENSE: F

      What offense? 36% shooting. A lack of free throw attempts (five, of which we missed two) Six poor shots by Dylan Talley (two charges, two threes that were way off, and two shots that just were out of any offensive rhythm) Missed layups and tips. Dribbling out the clock on our last possession. In this game a five-six point lead was insurmountable.

      One positive note was to see Gallegos take a drive to the basket. That shot has been open for him ever since the 20-pt games because EVERYONE's scouting report says overplay off the screen. Needs to happen more.

      The thing that is funny to me is the talk about the slow-down game, but we had 49 shots in this game and 56 against CMU, so it wasn't the pace of the game, but the difference between shooting 36% and 57%.

    13. uneblinstu's Post Game Chatter: ed 7, vol 16 - Illinois

      B7H2BzNCEAAJAgv.jpg

      - Back-to-back double digits conference wins is pretty cool. First time since 2005 that's happened.

      - Rebounded pretty well tonight.

      - They only got to the line once in the first 38 minutes of the game. What?! and the won by 10? Weird.

      - Illinois wasn't shy. And they didn't make many. Defense did pretty well and didn't give them some many second chance points. Probably the key to the game.

    15. 12/21/2013 - The Citadel Report Card

      OVERALL GRADE: D

      You can tell me you don't see this game as alarming and I will understand. I totally get that viewpoint.

      However, I don't share it. To me, this game was just as much of a debacle as Creighton (just in a different way). That marks about the fifth time we've come out with our fingers up our butts this year in the first half. We are NOWHERE NEAR good enough for that.

      Do you honestly think we're all of a sudden just going to turn it on come Big 10? That this will never repeat itself? Its just a few isolated incidents? No chance.

      Habits are learned and mentally, this team is in big, big trouble right now. If we want to ignore that and drink the Kool Aid, I'm fine with that. But if we're being real here, this is pretty damn disturbing.

      Not the kind of effort I would expect against the second worst team on our schedule in a "tune up" game. I hope these guys are as good as they think they are and will now just flip a switch, because it sure doesn't seem like they're working toward it on at least 20% of the 30 times a year they play.

      1o5C1.husker.hoops.central.report.card.jpg

      OFFENSE: A

      If the Huskers had scored a few more points in the first half, this would be an "A+."

      Either way, I can't imagine Nebraska playing any better offensively, as the Big Red shot 51% from the field en route to scoring 79 points!

      What's even better than the scoring is how NU achieved it, with virtually everybody contributing

    17. 12/18/2012 - Jacksonville State Report Card

      Jacksonville St



      OFFENSE: D-

      Nebraska may have scored more than the 40 they'd averaged the last two games, but against a team the caliber of Jacksonville State, 59 points is not acceptable. Period.

      I don't care if Nebraska is young, if they're only playing six and a half scholarship players (due to injury and red shirts) or if they're banged up a bit - you have to be able to score without going into extended droughts against a team you:

      A. Have WAY MORE SIZE THAN.

      B. Have WAY MORE TALENT THAN.

      C. Are PLAYING AT HOME AGAINST.

      If you can't tell, I am extremely frustrated.

      Nebraska looked scared and tenative once they got a big lead, and I'll harp on that a bit later in coaching.

      The Huskers short armed at least four shots in the last five minutes and looked totally like they were playing not to lose. At home against this team, that is not going to fly.

    18. 01/29/2013 - At Minnesota Report Card

      Ray Gallegos




      OFFENSE: A+

      We can talk about sets and schemes all we want, but at the end of the day, numbers don't lie.

      And seeing Nebraska shoot 55% from the field and 64% from downtown, along with scoring 65 on the road, tells us they had a pretty good night offensively.

      Sure, we could nitpick and say that NU was bad at the free throw line (53% on 8-15) and sure, we could say that "without Ray Gallegos shooting out of his mind, we wouldn't have looked good or scored much."

      One of those is certain (the free throw shooting) and the other is likely, but at the end of the day, both occurred.

      Gallegos is a slam dunk Player of the Game for scoring a career high 30 points and single handedly keeping NU within arms reach for 3/4 of the contest.

      Have to say though that Ray is really slacking on minutes - only played a weak 38 tonight. Needs to work on his conditioning. ;)

      *** NOTE *** This is the first report card in HHC history with a wink face in it.
