    Thorir Thorbjarnarson is N!

    I talked to a couple people about him. What I've gotten: high IQ, likes to attack the basket, improving shooter but not elite, competes on defense, great fit for what Miles wants. From what I was told, UMass was the only other place he visited but he had interest from multiple schools. This wasn't an out-of-the-blue thing; Nebraska has been recruiting him for a while. The toughest thing for him is going to be adjusting to the speed, physicality and athleticism of the American college game. He'll have a chance to crack the rotation, but it will probably take him some time just like any freshman, and perhaps more so than the others.

    You can't coach 6' 10 1/2". He's from Nebraska. There is very little to lose from trying to develop him. He won't be worse than Jake Hammond. I'm very happy Heiman accepted our offer.

    Jimmy's rule: When decisions seem to drag on forever, the outcome is usually not favorable. Addendum: Especially true in cases involving Nebraska basketball.

    If he were a guard I can justify it but not a center prospect. You didnt see Creighton send Patton to a prep school for a reason. Big men that need to gain size and practice are better off attending a D1 program asap. They will get a meal plan designed for them to gain the mass needed, on top of the weight training program. On top of it the only thing he would do at a prep school playing wise will usually be other undersized big men or guys he is a couple inches taller than. Theres a reason you hear guys like Thomas Allen coming into a program saying its the first time they did heavy lifts and then would practice this summer and was air balling his shots. The prep school he went to is one of the best in the country and hes just now doing those things. As a big man he needs that stuff right now so after his redshirt season he can hopefully have the maturity, strength, and mass to be able to compete even a little bit for us.

    They probably planned it out for months as opposed to my 'hey...waiting to take my new son home from the hospital....this seems like a good way to kill some time' strategy. This is also why it was half done for a bit.

    Norm, the Hudl film shows a good range of what he's capable of, but it would be a mistake to assume the highlight guy is the one he consistently is. He's not Frank Kaminsky. You like his jumper, but he shot 5-20 from 3 last year (and I know that he's not exactly lights out even in practice against no defense). He's also a 50% free-throw shooter, which isn't a great sign as far as future jumpshot development. He has developed a hook shot, but he's pretty streaky with it. Brady has improved significantly on offense over the last two years, but I worry about his touch limiting how efficient he will be overall. That state tournament game against Alliance is the worst I've ever seen him play, which is unfortunate timing, but it's not indicative of his talent. However, I've seen more 4-of-10 types of shooting performances than one would like considering his height and the kinds of shots he's taking. Defensively, though, Brady is really mobile and has outstanding shot-blocking instincts and fundamentals. The dude averaged almost 8 blocks a game as a sophomore. I don't care how tall you are or what level you play at -- that's impressive. His short wingspan is something to worry about though in terms of his rim protection translating because he's not going to be the only 6'10" kid on the court any more. He definitely has a lot of work to do on his body. On the one hand, his dad is a pretty sturdy guy so you'd think the potential to add weight is there. But I know they've been trying for years and it just hasn't happened at all. We'll see how much of a difference a Division I strength and conditioning program can make. One great thing to hear is that he played the best basketball of his life in Wichita and Las Vegas to close out July. That is why Nebraska finally pulled the trigger after going back-and-forth all spring and summer. As for his attitude, he definitely has a bit of a temper at times but I think saying "he gets T'd up quite a bit" is an overstatement. He's not Rasheed Wallace or DeMarcus Cousins.

    Actually, Jimmy, it's far more sinister. It has to do with the Bilderbergs and the tri-lateral commission, and their attempts at world domination, which all funnels through HHC. Seth Rich, who was from Omaha and attended Creighton University on a rowing scholarship, had leaked top secret recruiting information from this site to a bunch of pizza restaurants on the east coast in an effort to undermine the ascendance of Nebraska basketball under Tim Miles. I'd tell you what PIZZA stands for but I don't wanna get killed. Anyway, the Bilderbergs' kids fell in love with the inflatable Lil' Red mascot back in the 1990s and so ... Wait a sec, there's someone knocking at my door ...

    In all fairness, I bet you'd be hard pressed to find 20,000 Nebraskans who even know who Isaac Copeland is. That's not a knock on him or Nebraskans. That's life in Nebraska. We didn't get into the B1G because of our basketball history. It was football. Look at all the money rolling into the athletic coffers they can now direct towards basketball (if they so choose.) I never have begrudged the football program. I love them both. I hope basketball can get to a level of success where they warrant August coverage in the media. BTW, I bet Kansas football is saying the same thing.

    Glad you asked, Norm. Hampton is smack dab in the middle of the eye of totality. Astronaut Clayton Anderson is part of our ceremony. A crowd from 2000 to 5000 is expected on Monday. Conlee's is open for breakfast Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We have karaoke Sunday night starting at 8. Free eclipse glasses for those who watch the eclipse with us. Nebraska Star Beef burgers and hot dogs on the grill outside Conlee's Monday morning. Of course, steaks anytime. So, that's what I'm doing.

    I know a lot of people believe we have a number of question marks, I will place my rose colored glasses on and state that we have less question marks then most people wish to claim. I believe we are going to see exponential growth out of our returnees and the talent of our new comers will shine. So, go ahead and pick us at the bottom of the Big Ten people, it is time for a bit of shock and awe!

    Whatever happens with Copeland, I will be cheering on the huskers and look forward to seeing what improvements the rest of the team has made from last year. Obviously we would all love to have him eligible form the start of the season, but either way I think we have an improved group of talented young guys and I am excited to see what they can do this year! I think Roby, Jordy and Glynn are the core of our team and the addition of the new guys and some other players that have been here for a few years will make for a great season! I know some on this board think we have to make the big dance or the season is lost. Personally I would love to see that happen, but if we can make a deep run in the NIT I would be very happy with that too. I guess what I am saying is Go Big Red!

    Gill has never proven to be an elite college player. Copeland averaged double figures as a sophomore. Copelands also further along in his recovery. There are also more capable replacements for Gill then there are for Copeland.

    Cant really blame the writers. They write what ppl want to read. The truth is there are alot of Husker football fans whose bball allegience is either: n/a (they dont like bball), with Creighton, or some random blue blood. Writing a ton of articles on a team that a lot of ppl dont care about isnt a good business model for an industry that is already dying. And its not their job to change perception or increase popularity, that responsibility falls on administration, coaches, and players.

    D1 minutes

    Dropping the high and low from this season and from last season yields the following: This year: 7,978 total minutes, or an average of 1140 for the players with returning D1 minutes (not counting the high and the low.) Last year: 3,622 total minutes, or an average of 604 for the players with returning D1 minutes (not counting the high and the low.) The player with the most D1 minutes this year accounts for 18% of the team's total D1 minutes. The player with the most D1 minutes last year accounted for 39% of the team's total D1 minutes. Going into last year, we had one player (Tai Webster) with at least 900 career D1 minutes. This year, we have 6 such players. I think someone was asking if we're really any more experienced as a team this year than we were last year. This might answer that question.

    in: allen, copeland, duby, palmer, thorir, nana out: ed, horne, jacobson, webster, fuller. i think the talent we brought in will at the very least be equal to what we lost. then if you factor in that watson, jordy, roby, and mcveigh will all be improved, we should expect to see more wins this year. miles needs to get to the NIT to keep his job in my opinion.

    Tim pretty direct in that speech. With the usual humor mixed in. Says Okeke is good in space but needs work on his game in small spaces. Dan Dakich will be disappointed to hear that Evan Taylor is never going to be a great shot. But he's a good player and a great athlete. Palmer is a mini-Petteway. He's tough. Confirmed Gill's injury was much worse then they initially thought. Article would be worth linking. Some White/Morrow/Jacobsen stuff mixed in also.

    You can keep poo-pooing this but Copeland's good enough to where you might win 1-3 more of those 10 games. Is that the difference between staying home and postseason or NIT and NCAA? Is that the difference between Miles being extended or fired?

    The Isaac Copeland watch

    Great points everyone! I see a couple different things in this whole ordeal. 1. I would much rather hear the he is recovering fine, already doing some full workouts, and is getting back into the swing of things VS. He can play right away, but the back is still an issue. 2. I think it is much more vital that he is here for the last 2/3 than the first 1/3. Would I love to have him for both? Of course! But if I had to choose between the two, I could take the last 2/3. 3. I honestly do not think the team is going to struggle as much as some think without Copeland. Yes we lost Ed and Mike J, but we have Jordy and a nice little backup with Okeke who we know both will play right away. I think having Copeland out at the beginning of the year will force someone to step up (Jack, Nana, Roby, Ect.) and that could lead to great things when Copeland actually comes back. 4. I am not saying that not having him to start the season will not hurt. I just think that we are a decent team who can win a few and have a few surprises even without Copeland. With him... well that would just be golden.
