    I've known Ed for four years. I've seen him at his best, but unfortunately "his best" isn't what he normally is. He shot 31% from 3 last year (and that was an improvement from his sophomore year). In terms of how this went down, I will say that neither Creighton nor Nebraska "missed out" on him; they let him go. I think it's for the best for everyone that Ed gets out of this state and goes somewhere fresh to start his college career. He has a lot of work to do.

    No surprise here

    I failed to mention that isn't the only honor she was awarded with this spring. Emily also earned the Big Ten Outstanding Sportsmanship Award across all the Husker women's sports in 2016-17. She was named one of Nebraska's Outstanding Scholar Award winners across all sports for her performance in the classroom. She is expected to be a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar for the second consecutive year in 2017, and is a two-time academic All-Big Ten choice.

    Anyone else?!.........just kidding! Thanks for the kind remarks above guys they're appreciated. I actually think we have one of the top collegiate wbb message boards out there. There are some teams with none even in the B1G. I love to read what HB or Hud or Norm Petersen or anyone else who writes here, whether you agree or disagree, whether they have 2 posts or 15,000 posts to this forum, in my opinion everyone who contributes to our corner of the cyber-world make this place great.

    The lack of love for JBD is STUNNING- He was the last legit post player we had that could score with his back to the basket. Who could forget that Texas game when we knocked 'em off? Get with it gang & scroll back thru your mental Rolodex...

    You don't have to look back much further than Ed Morrow's physicality between year one coming off that leg injury where he would finish shooting layups and year two where he was dunking everything to be able to imagine how much more aggressive Roby will be this year vs last year.

    I also was one of the core group going back to Angela Beck days. Kids were involved in Lil Breakers, etc. Painful was the first year of Coach Yori as was last year. I am optimistic about the future, and will continue to support WBB!

    As for having a much better record I know some people will say "I will have to see it to believe it". My optimism stems from the following: More depth and experience, 2nd year under a new coaching staff, one more year in the training room for all returning players & two highly rated recruits. The biggest will be a big uptick in team chemistry which ties everything together.

    A couple things. 1. Just because someone says it, doesn't make it so. 2. Who's the "best" will always be subject and you can't "prove" those things but sometimes make for fun discussions. 3. Not Googling anything here but based on just what I've heard and read I would say 80-90% of all talking heads/pundits still pick Messi as the best in the game. 4. I'm sure part of that and overwhelming why he is the more popular player has to do with the difference in Ronoldo & Messi's personality. HERE IS MY REAL QUESTION. On this board I've read about baseball, football, volleyball, songs, movies, food and what people think is wrong with Kidney. All of this seems to pass without much comment. But whenever anyone mentions the most popular game in the would people always respond with sarcasm and insults. I don't understand all the hostility. I find watching baseball like watching paint dry but if you want to talk about the Cubs or whatever is your team, knock yourself out. I'll just skip over those posts. I didn't like soccer when I didn't know anything about it. When I watched it I learned to really like it because I love basketball and they are tactically almost the same sport. If I had to do it again, I would have my high school teams play a lot of soccer in the offseason because you could legally be teaching basketball by teaching soccer concepts without violating any NSAA rules, and it's a great conditioner corresponding to basketball as well. I'm certainly not going to waste any time trying to convert anyone but why does soccer seem to bring out some much hostility in people? I brought up Messi because no matter what sport you are focusing on, whether he is the best or second-best right now, his ability to be a great teammate, very little ego, willing to sacrifice for teammates and team, constant effort when playing and work ethic on and off the field, is something all athletes in all sports should aspire to. To make it relative to this board, he is the antithesis of AWIII.

    Just when we thought we may not be getting another post player for this fall our coach comes through with what appears to be a good one. It is becoming obvious to me that the players Coach Williams is looking for and has added to our team to date are not just good players but must be able to add to the all important team chemistry that she is working hard to improve as evidenced by her recent quote on Kate Cain where she said "She is an excellent student, has great character and fits perfectly with the humble, hard-working culture we are establishing at Nebraska." I think the key words are humble and hard-working. There will be a lot of competition for playing time especially when the four verbal commits for 2018 come in. We are and will continue to be a young team with lots of opportunities for players to take advantage of. I personally like where we are at and am looking forward to following our team in the future.

    Although, from Andre's perspective, he probably would have liked to have gotten a green light to shoot threes because it would have reduced by about 25% the distance he had to run to get back on D. That shaves off about 42 feet every round trip; that adds up.

    I think I'll inject something now, i.e. that Barfy did well to remind us of Roby's stress fracture last year. Not only does playing with pain make development difficult, but returning from injury tends to make one play tentatively.With that considered, perhaps we should all not be so surprised with the "disappointing" freshman performance by Mr. Roby..

    If he shoots 70% or more from 3 he'll average double figures next year. (That's from 3 feet and in.)

    klgumby makes this excellent observation over on Red Sea Scrolls: "Nebraska has done everything they have needed to do the minute they need to do it. They have to rely on Georgetown, all doctors, and the NCAA to be timely here and 2 of those 3 aren't exactly known for being timely."

    Back when Dollar Bill Byrne let Paul Sanderford go back in 2002, word being spread around that the new coach would be one with a proven track record or a well-qualified assistant. Word going around in different circles was that Nebraska was looking at Southwest Missouri St’s Cheryl Burnett, Tennessee assistant now head coach Holly Warlock who at one time was an assistant here at Nebraska, and Theresa Becker who had been the head coach at Iowa St and a former NU assistant under Angela Beck. Imagine my surprise when he announced the new coach as Connie Yori. I’ll be honest and say I absolutely hated that hire and didn’t expect much. She started her career at NU with an 8-20 record. If I remember right there were like 200 season ticket holders at the time and she always referred to us as her core group of fans from the get go which filled me with a sense of pride as she progressed the program to where she took it. Needless to say, I eventually forgave “Dollar Bill” for the hire. I was skeptical as to how her second year here would pan out just like fans are right now with Coach Williams. Coach Yori’s second year produced an 18-12 record and a berth in the WNIT tournament, she eventually turned that into the undefeated regular season in 2010 in which a lot of today’s fans jumped on the band wagon. Which was fine by me on both accounts. There honesty isn’t a week that goes by now that someone doesn’t ask me how this new coach will do in her second season. And comparing her to what Coach Yori did I don’t think is fair. I usually tell them we need to give her time. Now, I’m not saying Coach Williams needs to equal what Coach Yori did or do better and I’m not ready and probably won’t be for a while to make a win-loss prediction. But as I look at the somewhat easy non-conference schedule and what I think will be a down year in the B1G I at least see her going 500 or better her second year. That all depends on one thing though, we must keep Rachel Blackburn healthy all season. She is the backbone and leader of this team and it does no good with her riding bench. She in my belief is the key to making this upcoming season a success.

    Not bad, not bad. I would make a very slight syntactical adjustment involving a little poetic license, and rework the "end scene" slightly, and phrase the above poem thusly: "If Jack McVeigh hits not his trey he will not play. Naught else to say."

    The PBA was filled with why doesn't the coach play just 7 last year. They didnt/don't understand that Williams plays 10 sometimes 12 players. I posted last year that coach likes to play her bench. All the people have to do is go to the So. Dakota Web site and see the minute's that she gave her bench. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Walt P saying he's matured a lot, I guess I have to give him some credit because that's basically an admission that he wasn't mature enough before. Also tells me that maybe players don't hate Miles as much as some on here were reporting last March. Glynn Watson never transferred. That kind of tells you something too. I had heard that there were some flies in the ointment on last year's team. At least one of them transferred away and won't be missed as much as some around here thought. That helped chemistry right there.

    Who said she wasn't trying to recruit a big? I read this board a lot and I don't remember that. I'd like to see the quote. From anyone, let alone from "many of you," who said Coach wasn't trying, And I don't think we should count any quotes from Kearney man.

    Well, how about that? Just about the time so many of you had decided that Coach couldn't recruit a big - indeed, many said she wasn't trying to recruit a big - she signs a top 100 true post who can play immediately. Maybe Coach does know what she is doing.
