    BTN Sign Ideas?

    It's been in storage for 4 years...but the sign is heading to Lincoln tonight! My son, who is now 13, is going for probably the final time this year so it is time!

    Probably the best thing about this thread is that... after about page 3-4, someone could hit the "previous" button and read the same thing they would read if they hit the "next."

    They think our conference schedule is easy? Check out Ohio States... they have not played one team that is ahead of them in the standings right now. I mean how much easier can it get?

    Selection Committee Games of Interest

    i still want to think that the committee's going to give us credit for the full strength win versus Minny in December. Rasmussen will be on top of that one, I think. But maybe I'm just guzzling far too much kool aid this week. I can't help it. It's delicious!

    https://sports.yahoo.com/forde-minutes-biggest-surprises-college-basketball-season-053906894.html FIVE QUESTIONS WITH A COACH The Minutes caught up with Tim Miles (37) of Nebraska this week and got his thoughts on five pressing topics. Q: What has been the response to your team’s “Hate Will Never Win” statement over the weekend? A: We’ve had a massive outpouring of support and acceptance that our guys decided to stand out and stand up for something. I’m very proud of them for doing that. … This isn’t a political message. This is, “Let’s take a stand against racism, prejudice and hate.” Q: What does it feel like to be 19-8 overall, 10-4 and in fourth place in the Big Ten, and yet very much on the NCAA bubble? A: We caught a tough break with our schedule. Most of our Quadrant 1 games were on the road and against high-level Quadrant 1 teams (losses to Michigan State, Creighton, Purdue and Ohio State). When we beat Minnesota (Dec. 5), they were a Top 15 team with Reggie Lynch and Amir Coffey (since out). Now we don’t get much credit for that win. All we can do is keep winning and take care of our bid ourselves. You can’t go fanatical about something that has nothing to do with you. Q. After three straight losing seasons and heavy player turnover, how have you righted the ship this year? A. We have talent. Last year we had three guys sitting out who are now starters. We had some guys leave and it created quite a stir, but at the same time it galvanized the guys who stayed. I think it made them more committed to Nebraska and to their coach and to each other. Q. You’ve stopped the in-game tweets but now are regularly tweeting pictures of your dog. What’s up with that transition? A. When your career’s looking down the wrong end of the barrel, you need somebody with you. My wife and kids are with me, but there’s nothing better than Sammy, my yellow lab. When I’m watching tape at night, he’s right there with me, with his wet nose. It’s gross, but it’s adorable in its own way. Q. You went from the low of a blowout loss for your beloved Minnesota Vikings to the high of a Twitter conversation with Rob Riggle. Walk us through those emotions. A. The Vikings thing was, ‘This cannot be happening again.’ I went through it all again: the Raiders, Jack Tatum, Fred Biletnikoff, beating us in the Super Bowl; total hatred for [Dallas receiver] Drew Pearson pushing off and not being called for it in Met Stadium; it brought back a flood of devastating feelings. But then we’re in Minneapolis at the hotel and I find Rob Riggle’s hanging bag in my room (two days after the Super Bowl) … and I decided to tweet the picture to him. I think it’s pretty cool that he tweeted back.

    The only concern that I would have is that we were not playing like we are now back in November and December. It really took us until the middle of December to find a little groove and then by January we really got the ball rolling. A tougher game or two in the Non-Con may have been nice, but a few losses to better RPI teams might have threw this season in an entirely different direction. Just a thought.

    WNIT vs. The Dance

    I would think they would take the dance. A nice run in the NIT is possible, but you also have the possibility of going one and done there as well. The dance gives you the same amount of practice, more confidence, and better competition.

    WNIT vs. The Dance

    Wisconsin had a week to prepare and presented us some difficult matchups. Winning 2 of the last 4 should keep us in the Top 4 of the conference. NCAA should be forthcoming with a good finish.

    St. Bonaventure has wins over Maryland on a neutral court in overtime, at Syracuse and at home against UMass. No other major wins. They’ve lost to Niagra, TCU, Dayton, Saint Joseph’s, Rhode Island and Davidson. Their other wins are over Jackson St., Md.-East. Shore, Siena, Buffalo, Canisius, Yale, Vermont, Northeastrn, Fordham, Saint Joseph’s, George Washington, George Mason, Duquesne, Saint Louis and Richmond. And these dudes are ahead of us in the RPI?! I call foul!!

    Too much math. Too much precision. Too much sophistication. Committee members vote, and each member’s vote is based on his/her own priorities and values and biases. There is no monolithic Committee position on anything, other than on the broadest of generalities. Predicting is fun and creates discussion and interest. But predictions are based on assumptions that are often faulty. Here’s to enjoying the ride and to hoping that tonight’s result enhances, rather than detracts from, Nebrasketball’s chances.

    The Official Media Thread

    Again, Husker stuff from a professional handicapper's (Dave Malinsky--frequent guest on Sirius Radio's VSIN Network) perspective at SBR.com If the unseemly sports betting leaves a sour taste for you Cotton Mathers types out there, stay for some of the analysis. It is curious to me that some folks, who ostensibly would be in a position to evaluate things with an analytical eye, keep backing up the wagon to play AGAINST Nebraska. I assume the oppo money would be based on much more than just the relatively weak perception of Nebraska's basketball program over the years. In the Sights, Tuesday NCAA… I have gone to the well with Nebraska about as much as any team in a single-season in recent memory, and the Cornhuskers have both been lead topics and an almost constant part of the discussion threads on every one of their recent game days. I was mystified for weeks at why there was money against Tim Miles and his team in just about every Big 10 game, some of the moves substantial, and have just kept riding them out. The current trading is allowing for -1.5 to be put into pocket against Maryland, and that means yet one more time behind #524 Nebraska (7:00 Eastern). The Cornhuskers have simply been better than the Terrapins, and now that we are deep into the conference schedule, using the Big 10 only base count tells a tale: Net PPP 100 Maryland -2.4 Nebraska +5.4 Yet tonight’s line is below where the home court advantage would project, despite the fact that Nebraska is also positioned to play well – this is only the third game in 15 days, and sandwiched between Rutgers and Illinois there is nothing preventing a team building in confidence from having their full focus on Maryland. The Terrapins have managed to gut out a 6-8 in league play despite being short-handed, but I believe that takes a toll down the stretch – Anthony Cowan has played 547 of a possible 565 minutes in Big 10 games, and for Kevin Huerter it has been 499 and Darryl Morsell 472. They have lost their last six Big 10 road trips, and in what is becoming an electric atmosphere in Lincoln they could play well tonight and still lose by a couple of baskets.

    #1 Seed in the NIT

    One and Done any day of the week and twice on Sunday's. While winning the NIT would be nice... winning a tournament of "failed to qualifies" doesn't do a whole lot for me personally. It's like winning a bowl game. While it's nice, the Gator Bowl or Outback Bowl or whatever isn't like winning a playoff game or national championship. The only thing it does for me is give me a few extra opportunities to watch the Huskers play.

    By the way, don't look now but that UCF loss is headed in the direction of a quadrant 1 loss instead of a quadrant 2 loss. They picked up a road win at Memphis on Sunday and have jumped into the top 60 in the NCAA rpi. They could really do us a solid by beating Wichita State at home on March 1. Not too solid, though. Don't want them jumping over us.

    I disagree with your 1st bullet point. Here is why... You need to take into account conference record once it gets past 12 wins. There in no way in hell they keep out a 14-4 Big 10 team. I understand that conference record is not something the committee holds in a high standard. When looking at the 20 or so teams on the bubble that 14-4 is going to stick out like a soar thumb! 50/50 no way is that the odds at that point. Odds are more like 95/5... 50/50 is if we go 3-1 I keep laughing at all these comparisons to 2012 Washington, and 2012 Arizona and 2013 Georgia. Washington - 14-4 in a PAC-12 conference that had two teams make it to the tournament that year (California and Colorado). The highest RPI in the PAC 12 conference that year was California at 45. Their out of conference record was 7-5 that year and final regular season win total was 21-9. Their RPI was 54. The proceeded to lose in the first round to a 20-15 Oregon State team that finished the season 132nd in RPI. Their highest RPI victory that year was against Oregon at 52. Best win of the year was @Arizona at RPI 79. They did finish the season losing back to back to RPI 123 and 132. That is two tier 3 losses in a row with a 21-10 record Comparison - This resume is the closest our current season that I have seen. Washington seems to be everyone's go to excuse as to why us winning out the remainder of our games still doesn't get us in. Well... here is the difference... If we finish the season at 14-4 we will be on a 9 game winning streak, and our tournament opponent will not be 132 in the RPI. Our RPI will be in the high 30's low 40's going into the tournament. Not to mention our record would be 23-8. 14-4 is an almost guarantee to get us into the tournament. I will put my money where my mouth is too. That is how confident in my theory here!

    I know there are disagreements on here but I definitely think this is too optimistic of a view. - Win the next 4, but lose in the 4/5 game, and we are 50/50 in the tournament... right on the cut line. Win that 4/5 game and we're safely in. - Go 3-1, and we definitely need to win that 4/5 game because our RPI will be in the 50s and we will likely have 0 tier 1 wins. - Go 2-2, probably need to get to the finals.

    yep. with purdue's remaining schedule, i just didn't see them contending for one of the remaining spots regarding the double bye----and, i actually thought the hoosier game would be a 'w' for the boilermakers. after watching that game, i feel a little more confident that the huskers can pull out a 'w' in bloomington. would be so sweet to pull out 2 wins out of the 3 road games left.

    We do schedule in a few turds just because we want a couple of wins or because that's all we can schedule. However I do know that we try and figure out which teams are going to win a lot of games in their conference so that we can game the RPI. Sometimes teams like Eastern Illinois have injuries and end up tanking which seems more reliable than just checking what teams were ranked the year before. As far as sub 300 games go..... 2014 http://warrennolan.com/basketball/2014/schedule/Nebraska 19 wins, RPI 53 4-8 vs Top 50 (AKA future Q1), SOS 30 2018 http://warrennolan.com/basketball/2018/schedule/Nebraska Thus far - 19 wins, RPI 54, 0-6 vs Q1, SOS 94 Our big problem isn't Delaware St...it's that we lost to UCF which put Long Beach St and Marist on the schedule....which wouldn't have been a huge problem if the B1G was up....which wouldn't have been as bad if Wisconsin and Minnesota hadn't fallen off a cliff. Delaware St and Stetson are hurting our RPI but it's not the main issue because the big thing missing on our resume is lack of wins against good teams, not a slight bump in the RPI. We needed to replace Delaware St with a top quad 1 game, not a game vs some mid-major. One thing I do see with our schedule is that we didn't exactly beat the pants off of Stetson nor Delaware St. While these are a couple of sub 300 wins it occurs to me that they sure aren't sub 200 loses like we've had in seasons prior.

    I don't want to see a single team on next year's schedule that had an RPI of worse than 300 in 2017-2018. The difference between 200-299 teams and 300-360ish teams is significant toward RPI, but not a big difference toward win probability (e.g. 98% versus 95%). This is important.

    In regards to Palmer, I think he needs to simplify his stroke just a little. He can become a little better outside shooter IMO by doing so. This will tell the tale on his NBA success or lack thereof.

    NIT-ology has us as a No. 1 seed as of Feb. 11 after posting this on Jan. 15: "Looking at 18-13 and 9-9 in the Big Ten, so certainly enough wins. They’re looking at an RPI around 125/130 according to RPIForecast with just two wins in Tier 1 or 2 (because of how down the Big Ten is), so it’s hard to see the Cornhuskers making a legit run at an NIT bid. An unexpected win at Minnesota or Michigan would certainly help." So that's progress.

    Copeland can stay with Huerter and has the length to give him problems. The thing to worry about is how much we can slow down guys like Fernando and Cekovsky one-on-one without Roby fouling out. BTW here is an older shot chart for Huerter and Cowan. Looks like keeping Huerter off the right side of the court is key
