    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.

    Offseason Potpourri

    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.

    Go on record now.

    I will also add to what you've said here, all of which I agree with, that it appears we have enough depth that IF one has a "poor performance" there is enough depth to over come it. Last year if Webster and or Watson had a bad game, and it happened, we were screwed.

    Go on record now.

    I would like to chime in on the phrase "poor performance." If someone has a bad offensive outing, they are said to have a poor performance. But I would like to contest that thought process. Total performance has to reflect upon total game. That includes some measurables, and some intangibles. In the exhibition outing, we had two players with poor offensive performance. One of those individuals also had a number of turnovers that does not bode well for overall performance. But that same player disrupted shots, played good on and off ball defense and rebounded well. The other player did a number of little things that helped the team to a successful outcome. We are going to have players throughout the year that will have a bad offensive performance. But in those instances, we need others to pick up that offensive slack AND those players performing poorly on offense must pick up and/or maintain the other elements of their game.

    Robin's Predictions

    After careful consideration of the comments by Robin Washut, Jacob Padilla and others, I have decided to change my projections for the starting lineup for this year's Nebraska basketball team: PG Glynn Watson SG Someone really good SF Someone really good and better than last year PF Someone really good and better than last year C Someone really good and better than last year And that leaves a bench of ... Someone really good who started last year Someone really good who probably would have started on last year's team Someone really good who probably would have started on any Nebraska basketball team in the last 10 years ... except this one.

    Whether its great might depend on his level of competency at it. Perlman cared a lot about athletics, he just sucked at it. Reverse Midas touch. Hopefully Bounds/Green do a much better job with making decisions that help advance the mission.

    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.

    His loss is going to leave a huuuuge void on this board. I'm not just saying this because he's gone. And I tried to give him props while he was still here. But, his work on the recruiting threads alone was amazing. Beyond amazing. Words cannot describe how much valuable content he produced for our consumption. Those recruiting threads were where I ("fell in love with" is too strong) became a fan of the young women who have donned the Husker uniform over the years. And I'm sure I speak for most everyone on here when I say that. To the fathers of the girls on this team who post here: Those recruiting threads were epic and those were the introductions we had to your daughters. Those were the places where we, as fans, began to feel an attachment to the young women who joined Husker nation (and some of the ones who didn't -- Kathleen Doyle for instance.) I never knew him in person, but I am really, really going to miss Row6's contributions to this board. I can't imagine it's going to be the same without him. He's going to be sorely missed.

    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

    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.

    By the way ...

    If Nebrasketball (and Nebraska football) could avoid some of the injuries that have plagued us -- more than most teams, it seems (especially given lack of depth most seasons), we'd be singing a much different tune. The following is from memory, so please feel free to point out errors. The year we went to the Dance, the following players were, largely, injury-free the entire season: Leslee Smith, Terran Petteway, Shavon Shields, Ray Gallegos, Tai Webster, David Rivers, Benny Parker, Walter Pitchford, Mike Peltz. That's an entire nine-player rotation available all season. The next season began with a blown-out knee for Leslee Smith--and he never came back in any meaningful way. About the time Moses Abraham was blending in, he broke his hand and was never the same. And Walter Pitchford was injured in the psyche or something. The next year began with foot problems for Ed Morrow--which never went away. Then, during a late-season game, when we were up by 20+ points on Penn St., Shavon Shields went down -- and the season went with him. Last season began with health issues for Isaiah Roby, which never really went away. And about the time they had something going, Ed Morrow's foot started hurting and never got better. Those are all excuses. But they are also true . . . and significant.
