    Perhaps I'm wrong but I think Miles will benefit greatly - perhaps most - by Moos' hiring. Miles will work well with an AD who's outgoing and extroverted and relationship oriented. Eichorst struggled there, and Miles - unlike Bo - made his share of good faith efforts toward Eichorst. This'll sound odd, but you know what could really use a good men's basketball season? Nebraska football. Some other sport at Nebraska needs to take the pressure off in the spring/summer. Husker football, regardless of the coach, could use a little less opinionating and talk radio coverage in the offseason. Of course Husker football will always be No. 1, but it wouldn't hurt if the No. 2 story in March was a NCAA berth/NIT run vs, you know, junior day in recruiting.

    I just wanted to thank all of you for your kind words and prayers for Brian and our family. As has been previously stated he was entirely devoted to the Husker WBB program and this forum allowed him to share both his knowledge and passion with each of you. I took this photo March 3, 2013 after the Penn State game which was the last WBB game played at Devaney. After the recognition of the seniors I asked to take his picture there one last time. The origin of his username was from his original seat at Devaney (Row6Seat10) but it did not translate to the PBA. He frequently invited family and friends to use one of his tickets so to honor him our family plans to utilize them for the 2017-18 season just as he would have wanted us to do. Perhaps we will get the chance to meet some of you in person, we'll be in Sec. 118. Bruce Karnatz

    The men's team's board is called "Haymarket Hardwood," not "Nebraska Men's Basketball." I think the women's board should be renamed "Row 6, Seat 10."

    Rachel Blackburn update?

    So sorry to hear/read about the death of Row 6. Regarding Rachel: 1. We talked to Rachel last night. She says practice is going very well for her and the team. She thinks she's doing well in practice... She's humble, so I'll take her at her word. 2. She's very optimistic regarding how good the team can be (with respect to being competitive in the Big 10). She loves her coaches and her teammates. 3. She loved her high school team, and she said that this team gives her that same feel... They care about each other and want to be around each other. The old team chemistry is working. 4. Knees: When she's on the court they don't hurt much. If she sits, they tighten up. Nobody on the planet really knows why her knees hurt. I wish I knew how it is going to turn out. So does she... 5. She can't wait to play. 6. Fall break is this weekend. She'll be at the Chiefs game on Sunday... Section 117, Row 15, Seat 1 or 2. With luck the Chiefs will crush the Steelers. We'll see.

    By the way ...

    I normally have my rose colored glasses firmly on my nose at the beginning of nearly every season. I really got caught up in the talk about football this year. Heck, the typically stoic and somewhat understated Sip was telling me on his morning show that Tanner Lee was a certain NFL draft choice, but perhaps not a first rounder...that hook was firmly in my lip. So...what am I left to think about this basketball team. Should I buy the hype, or hold back a little and just be cautiously optimistic. I want to go head over heals, but can my psyche take another swing and miss. Sure we have an experienced PG that may actually have a chance to be a first or second team All-Big Ten team; and yes, we have a couple of dudes that can back him up, so yeah, we have depth at PG. Sure we have some great choices for SG. This Palmer kid was okay at Miami, but won't he be rusty and can we really be sure that he will have the right mindset? Sure Anton was an elite recruit, but injuries and rustiness will not allow him to show his true skills, right??? And yes we have three freshmen that could potentially play the off-guard position. But an expert tells us one is too small, the others, shoot who knows, we have had more bad luck then good luck with recruits...right? Who really knows about the wing, right? Jack has a beard, so no way he can play the three. Isaiah sure can't play the three, he doesn't have the three point shot, so sheesh, he is nothing but a possibility there, right? Copeland can't play there, he is too tall, correct? Perhaps Evan can play there? Well heck, I am told he cannot shoot either, so heck, we just don't have a player that can fit into the role of a wing. PF has always been AWOL here at dear old UNL. Jack, well too slow and to weak, right? Copeland, he doesn't want to pound in the lane, shoot, I am told he is Walter P II. And Isaiah, we remember last year, he will get pushed all over and has no chance to play a power position, right? Post play, has Nebraska had a post player since Alec? I think not. We have had a couple wannabe's, but really, we are going to count on players when we cannot even pronounce their last names....really? And defense...really? We don't play good defense, teams score less on us because we hold the ball on offense. And is there a possibility we could play up tempo, heck, that isn't even remotely possible with this coaching staff, right??? So now, I should be optimistic right? Members of this board seriously want me to buy into this team, this year??? You are right...I do buy in. We are going to provide shock and awe...I believe! I am truly geeked for this season!

    Regarding further treatment... I'm not allowed to comment. However, she/we've done a bunch of stuff. She is going to play. She says she feels better now than she did this time last year. Bottom Line: She'll play until the pain is so excruciating that she just can't take it. Then she'll go a little more.

    This years starters

    Looking at the whole scope of the team, I agree with Actualfacts. I think that it's Darrien's job to lose for the starting center. Bria is also nursing an injury but is playing through it. As long as she stays healthy, I see her getting the starting nod at pg. She's an explosive pg that can get that transition going. She can also score but looks to pass first. I haven't seen Taylor or Janay play but I hear they are very good. I think Maddie will probably get the nod as she turned it up the last few games of last season and has the potential to be a very good player. I think she'll be on another level this year. It's a no brainer that Nicea and Hannah should start seeing what they did last season and as long as they continue to work hard. It should be an interesting season. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nebraska v Georgetown

    Can't give everything away, but James Palmer looked really good. Glynn is Glynn. I'm not ready to declare Evan Taylor an all-conference player (still saw some things that give me pause) but I will say that he looks a lot better than he did a year ago. I was impressed with what Thomas Allen showed as a shooter and P&R ball-handler. Isaiah Roby's shot form from 3 looks smoother when he has some time and space to get it off and he continues to show immense defensive potential. Jack's shooting was up-and-down but he was all over the offensive glass throughout the practice and his length really stood out. It was only practice three so they're just getting started.

    I will say that if Taylor does play a lot, it will be because a lot on here underestimated him. NOT because we overestimated the team.

    Notes to share from the final offseason scrimmage. The following information is from captioned photos and short clips posted on the huskerhoops snapchat account. From what i could tell, here is how the players were teamed up: RED TEAM •Anton Gill •James Palmer •Justin Costello •Tanner Borchardt •Isaiah Roby •Nana Akenten •Glynn Watson GREY TEAM •Malcolm Laws •Jack McVeigh •Isaac Copeland •Thorir Thorbjarnarson •Duby Okeke •Thomas Allen •Evan Taylor *Jordy Tshimanga and Johnny Trueblood were not visible in any of photos/videos. NOTES -Roby wins opening tip over Duby -Copeland knocks down a 15 footer over a contesting Anton Gill -Anton scores a layup, Duby was protecting the paint -Duby dunks the ball. Palmer and Tanner were both in the vicinity but did not get "dunked on" -Palmer ties the scrimmage with a 3 over a contesting McVeigh -Glynn pulls up for a long 2, both Evan Taylor and Duby with the attempted contest of the shot -On the final possession Glynn steals the ball from Evan Taylor or Thomas Allen (couldnt tell which one had possesion of the ball bc of angle) to seal a 26-24 win for the red team.

    Eichorst Out

    I sometimes lurk on other boards and this Eichorst thing has been interesting to me. There is a group of people who seem to think this is a catastrophic move by the university that undercuts a potentially very strong recruiting class that Riley has been putting together. Those people seem to think firing Eichorst essentially cuts the nads off of Riley and dooms him to failure when they thought he was well on his way to success. It's almost like a funeral for some of them. These same people, over the years, typically: Express contempt for tradition (i.e., the "Husker" way) Express contempt for Tom Osborne because he ... Forced Bill Byrne to replace him with Frank Solich Hired Bo Pelini based on his (tenuous) connection with the Husker past Failed to fire Mike Anderson the moment they turned on him Hired his former punter to replace Mike Anderson (more inbreeding from their perspective) Is viewed with reverence by the so-called "Tradition Coalition" who value the "Husker" way Give men's head basketball coaches about 3 seasons to turn things around before bailing on them Mock other fans who continue to support head basketball coaches longer than 3 years into their tenure Mock the current men's basketball coach by, for instance, calling Doc Sadler "Kenneth" or belittling Miles for his tweeting Are conspicuously silent after big Husker hoops wins and conspicuously noisy after big Husker hoops losses Think that having Tom Osborne in charge of hiring coaches or ADs is a very bad idea (see above) Think that hiring any AD or Coach who has a previous Osborne connection is a very bad idea (so no Trev Alberts or Dave Rimington) Given the above, it is mystifying to me why they seem so distraught about Eichorst getting fired. And not so much because they like Eichorst as much as they think the Eichorst firing is really the death knell for Mike Riley's coaching tenure here. It's equally mystifying to me that they're so willing to remain supportive of Mike Riley in the face of a profound lack of progress at the helm of a program that still has some legitimate national cachet even as they turn on basketball coaches in charge of programs that manifestly lack that national cachet. I mean, why are they so supportive of Riley and willing to give him a pass on the abysmal end to last year and the beginning of this one even as they express outrage that the boom wasn't lowered on Miles back in March? It just makes me glad that the average fan has no input on coaching changes.

    Next Years Starting 5

    He'll probably play more than 8. It just depends how much PT those other players get. Hard to believe Okeke won't play at all because its hard to believe Tshimanga will suddenly be able to stay out of foul trouble completely and play 30 minutes every game. As far as Okeke having 20 pounds on Copeland and Roby, that 20 pounds matters a lot. Nana won't redshirt but he's not going to be a regular rotation player either. The Horne comparison is a decent one as far as what his role might be. I'd imagine Watson, Taylor, Palmer and Allen is your core backcourt. Roby, Copeland and McVeigh are your forwards and Tshimanga and Okeke are your bigs. That's 9, which I'm guessing is the most likely way things shake out. Akenten and Borchardt may see the floor as the situation calls for it but won't be part of the regular rotation. Gill is probably in this group as well. The thing is that on top of recovering from his injury, he would actually have to beat out Taylor, Palmer and Allen for minutes. To this point, his high school accolades and I guess that scrimmage performance I see referenced here are the biggest things he has going for him. His play to this point certainly wouldn't necessitate that he gets minutes.

    A quicky in the sack with Lindy

    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

    I'm curious how many practices Lee has watched to come away with that opinion of Akenten's shooting ability. Thomas Allen is much more deserving of that kind of praise from what I've seen. Not saying Nana isn't a good shooter – his shooting will get him on the floor at times if the team is in a rut offensively and need some spot-up shooting – but Thomas is quite a ways ahead of him right now.

    It's human nature that I am totally guilty of. He doesn't do anything flashy, hasn't shown the ability to fill-up the scoreboard or stat sheet, and the unknown of what other players can do is so attractive. Yet he continues to play. Which tells me that he's great in practice, knows the defense inside and out, is a leader and respected by his teammates, and knows his role.

    People are already counting Riley as fired. I get people wanting change and wanting things for football to be like the good ole days. First it's a different era. We aren't going back to the good ole days but that doesn't mean we can't be better and more consistent. Second, even understanding the "why's" people have, I can't show enthusiasm for anyone getting fired. I'm glad Miles is here but I felt bad for Doc just on a human level. Not here but I've seen "fuck ya!" Tweeted about today's firing. I'm not superior to anyone so that's why I find it hard to celebrate other's failures. I have to admit I'm sure my feelings on this has something to do with being in that same situation myself. I personally have no idea how well the job of AD was being performed. I have heard high school football coaches that have dealings with Riley involving recruiting and their statement was, "I hope Riley is here forever." Head coaches are responsible for their program. The buck stops at their desk and they get paid very well to deal with that responsibility. But there are things out of their control. The backbone of the team should be your 4th & 5th year seniors and the redshirt juniors. Those would be Bo's recruits. Look at the roster to see how many of those guys are even still On the team. Bo had strentghs but recruiting wasn't one of them.
