    Is this what being wrong feels like? If so, I like it!

    Can we assume now that our compliance staff taking so long was a blessing? Think those guys need a hat tip, because sounds like they did quite a lot of leg work.

    I was going to say "that's what she said", but then I realized that would be juvenile and immature so I decided not to say that.

    HUGE. That's the kind of talent that keeps us from losing dumbass games (please God let this be the year of no dumbass losses) and gives us a shot to pull off an upset or two in non-con.

    Not official-official but it's not like Rothstein just makes stuff up. I'm genuinely surprised and excited!

    Next Years Starting 5

    Fascinating to think how much has changed since January 30. And, in my view, changed for the better.

    If you held a gun to my head and made me give an answer, I think the most likely scenario based on everything we know would be ET starting the first game. But that's just a guess and not a firm one. Lots of things could happen. One thing I do feel comfortable with is that regardless who starts, I think our bench can score some points.

    This is worth a two or three game swing in our W-L in my very humble opinion.

    Here are Isaac's Freshman year stats: Played in all 33 games, started 11, and averaged 20.0 minutes. Shot .451 from the floor, .389 from three, and .809 from the line, averaging 6.8 points per game. Committed 46 fouls -- that's less than 2 per game. Had 3.8 rebounds per game. Had 19 blocks, 8 steals, and 23 assists to 36 turnovers.

    So, last season ...

    Here are Miles' numbers with 3PA% (number of 3s vs all shots taken) Last year was the least number of 3s %-wise of Miles' time here and the 2nd lowest of his coaching career. It makes sense looking at our roster where you had essentially no 3pt shooting from the 4/5 (Morrow, Jordy, MJ, Roby) and then a bunch of minutes from Evan Taylor. Is Roby going to shoot 3s this year? You're looking at Copeland/Roby at the 4 and that should easy translate into a position that now generates 3pt attempts. Will we minimize minutes from Taylor? What sort of shooter will Palmer be? It would be a shock if we were to turn into Michigan or Wisconsin in terms of attempts but it's not too hard to see with our roster adding more guys who can shoot 3s that we can expect Nebraska to be a team that shoots 3s at a rate more like the 2013-14 and 2014-15 teams. Hopefully we can shoot a bit better than those teams.

    So, last season ...

    Simply put, if we can improve our three point efficiency, and improve our efficiency in defending the three point shot, our W-L record ought to improve concurrently. I like our chances of accomplishing both of these things this season. Of the five departures from last season, only Webster, in my mind, is tough to replace in terms of three-point shooting. With the new players this year (freshmen and transfers) I expect our overall team 3 pt. percentage to nudge a lot closer to 40. Something I'm really hopeful this year is that with the improved depth of three-point shooters, the pressure will be off McVeigh to have to make all or most of his threes, and thus he can feel more loose, and start improving his accuracy.

    So, last season ...

    I believe we've respectfully and lovingly debated this before. I disagree to an extent. You have to shoot them to make them. I've been critical of some X's and O's aspects of Miles's offense in the past, specifically with his lack of dribble drive reaction spots. I don't think our guys get to the spots, angles, and visionary windows on the drive that we need to do to get great kick-out 3pt shots. HOWEVER, early in the season last year it looked like some of those things were emphasized in the off-season and fall practices. Unfortunately, they seemed to disappear as B1G play began. I've always personally believed that there are shots that you HAVE TO shoot. When you don't shoot them it seems as if the ball knows its opportunity was wasted, and it becomes a jerk and doesn't work for the next guy. It's a catch-22 and circular though. If you never see guys make them in practices or they seem to statistically be failing as the season is in play, it's hard to justify chucking up 3's. But I believe your guys have to have your confidence as a coach to shoot the shots that have to be shot when the ball is in rhythm. Of course, as Dimes said earlier in this thread - the guys who have left shot 62 for 215 (28.8%). Hopefully we got some addition by subtraction by removing some poor shooters. And then hopefully we gained some... addition... by... addition... (?) with some new guys who can put the ball in the hoop.
