    If AG is able to contribute something this year, that would be a nice ending to his college basketball story. I'll be pulling for him to find some measure of being able to contribute to a successful team this year.

    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.

    Just back from Beatrice. Took two and a half hours for the 40 minute drive back to Lincoln. It was worth it. Clouds uncovered at the very last moment and got to visit for awhile with Bill Nye who gave me a personalized autograph. A very good day for old Jimmy.

    And one other positive note to balance all the negative ones on the thread. This is one recruit who will not be discouraged by our cold Nebraska winters.

    Louisville's football and basketball programs are currently in a much better position that Nebraska's, and those are the only two sports that really move this needle. As I said earlier, Nebraska is (at best) in third place in the Adidas portfolio behind Louisville and Miami. And although their payout doesn't have parity, Adidas has also been developing a significant relationship with Arizona State with respect to sports science and product design/testing. Miami signed their Adidas deal two years before we renewed our contract. Miami had been a Nike school for nearly three decades so Adidas wanted to make a big splash with their contract. I think they got $90MM spread over 12 years, so significantly less than Nebraska. And Adidas is willing to come back to the table and renegotiate if these payouts keep climbing. What more could we ask for? Nike represents far too many programs to be able to offer Nebraska these amounts or give us any sort of attention/special treatment. I believe Adidas actually employs a corporate liaison that lives on site in Lincoln. This is where we want to be.

    Big 10 Talent

    I am posting this in reference to what 49'r posted on page 21 of the Starting 5 thread Interesting enough according to the recruiting site ratings we do have Top 3 talent in the Big 10... if we were to go by recruit rankings that is on a current roster. I am going to list all the schools players that are on their current roster that were ranked in the Top 150 or better... *** NOTE: No player is listed if they were not rated in the Top 150 of a recruiting site *** *** NOTE 2: This is based on active rosters so I used direct sources from the schools website to see who is still currently playing and matched it to Rivals recruit lists. Also I included transfers that were highly rated like Copeland (NU), Doorson (Rutgers) or Matthews (Michigan). You will not see any irrelevant 5* or 4* recruits that are no longer on the team... Enjoy *** Top 150 = 1pts Top 100 = 2pts Top 50 = 3pts Top 25 = 4pts Top 10 = 5pts Illinois = 12pts Leron Black = Top 50 Aaron Jordan = Top 100 Tejon Lucas = Top 150 Mark Smith = Top 100 Trent Frazier = Top 100 De'monte Williams = Top 100 Indiana = 11pts Clifton Moore = Top 150 Justin smith = Top 150 De'Ron Davis = Top 50 Curtis Jones = Top 100 Robert Johnson = Top 50 Juwan Morgan = Top 150 Iowa = 5pts Tyler Cook = Top 100 Luke Garza = Top 150 Conner McCaffery = Top 100 Maryland = 15pts Dion Wiley = Top 100 Michal Cekovinski = Top 150 Jared Nickens = Top 150 Kevin Heurter = Top 100 Anthony Cowan = Top 50 Justin Jackson = Top 100 Daryll Marcell = Top 100 Bruno Fernando = Top 100 Michigan = 10pts Moritz Wagner = Top 100 Jon Teske = Top 150 Xavier Simpson = Top 100 Isaiah Livers = Top 150 Jordan Brooks = Top 150 Charles Matthews = Top 50 Michigan State = 26pts Tum Tum Naird = Top 100 Matt McQuaid = Top 100 Myles Bridges = Top 10 Winston Cassius = Top 50 Joshua Langford = Top 25 Nick Ward = Top 50 Jaren Jackson = Top 10 Xavier Tillman = Top 100 Minnesota = 8pts Amir Coffee = Top 100 Dupree McBrayer = Top 150 Jordan Murphy = Top 150 Eric Curry = Top 150 Isaiah Washington = Top 100 Matz Stocksman = Top 150 Nebraska = 16pts Glynn Watson = Top 100 James Palmer = Top 100 Isaiah Roby = Top 150 Isaac Copeland = Top 25 Anton Gill = Top 50 Thomas Allen = Top 100 Nana Akenten = Top 150 Jordy Tshimanga = Top 150 Northwestern = 7pts Vic Law = Top 100 Aaron Falzon = Top 100 Barret Benson = Top 150 Rapolas Ivanaukas = Top 100 Ohio State = 11pts Jae'Sean Tate = Top 100 Keita Bates'Diop = Top 50 Musa Jallow = Top 150 Kyle Young = Top 150 Kaleb Wesson = Top 100 Kam Williams = Top 100 Penn State = 7pts Lamar Stephens = Top 100 Tony Carr = Top 50 Josh Reaves = Top 150 Mike Watkins = Top 150 Purdue = 9pts Isaac Hass = Top 100 Vince Edwards = Top 150 Dakota Mathias = Top 150 Ryan Cline = Top 150 Carson Edwards = Top 100 Nojel Eastern = Top 100 Rutgers = 6pts Da'Shawn Freeman = Top 100 Corey Sanders = Top 100 Mamadou Doucoure = Top 150 Shaquille Doorson = Top 150 Wisconsin = 8pts Brad Davidson = Top 100 Nathan Reuvers = Top 100 Alex Illikainen = Top 150 Brevin Pritzl = Top 100 Ethan Happ = Top 150 So according to this list Nebraska sits at #2 in recruit rankings currently on a roster... 1.

    Next Years Starting 5

    You know we can't say specifics, because the unknowns on this team are through the roof. 1. Copeland... will his back be okay, and how will he mesh with this new team. Will he go all Terran Petteway and think he has to do everything, or will he play within the system? 2. How much PT will Thomas Allen get and will he be even remotely close to his shooting % in high school. How many minutes will he get, and where will he spend the majority of his minutes? 3. James Palmer does anyone know what his strengths are? We he be a 2 or is he more of a 3 type player. I don't know if anyone know what we are going to get out of him. 4. Nana Akenten will he get minutes? Will he play his true 2 position if he does? Does he just redshirt this year? 5. Anton Gill the biggest mystery of all. Does he get meaningful minutes? Does he play anywhere near to what he was like coming out of high school? How many minutes does he get if he gets any at all? Do he mesh better with his North Carolina team mates Copeland and Allen? 6. Does Roby progress enough to be the player we all think he can be... A 6'8 forward with guard like abilities? Does his shot develope enough to make him a legit outside threat? 7. How many meaningful minutes can we get out of Tshimanga. Does he take his game to the next level? 8. Is Duby a legit back up to Tshimanga, and how many minutes will be needed from him? 9. Will Watson be more of a facilitator this year, because of the talent around him? 10. What is Evan Taylor new role on this team? How many minutes does he get and at what position? There are probably a dozen more unknowns, but there is a reason for the hype. The hype is coming from the fact we have a legit 1, 3, 4, and 5 and the possibilities at the 2 position are ridiculous. Go back to every year before this and you will not see a team that is a complete as this one as far as legit talent for specific positions... that actually get to play their position of strength. Go to the team the year after we made the tournament we had a LOT of talent on that team, but we had no true post and we had role playing point guard. So as talented as that team was we played some players out of their natural positions... Pitchford and Rivers come to mind on that team

    I'd say it's too early for something that specific. I think it's safe to expect Watson and Copeland to get starter's minutes, and they're hoping Roby and Tshimanga progress enough to get those minutes as well. After that, I think they're still sorting things out. I think Copeland's athleticism and potnetial shooting ability make him pretty easy to play with pretty much any combination of players on this roster. Roby, Copeland and Tshimanga could form a pretty fun front-line though.

    To you, sure, I'm sure you believed that. Not doubting you. But there have been a handful of times over the years where that was said (not ascribing to any one inparticular...). Foolhardy or otherwise. We tend to get wrapped up into these optimistic states before the season starts (I've been guilty of this) and think we're better than we actually are. Until I see it on the court, I'm not gonna do that. That's all I'm saying. And if Pitchford had built off that sophomore season instead of turtleing up, you'd have had something to work with at the 5.

    Serious question ...

    We should be better this year than last. What mostly hurt us last year was unbelievable opponent three-point shooting, a really tough non-con, a couple of stupid bad breaks, poor three-point shooting, and losing our top returning scorer. Will opponents shoot the three like they did last year? Not likely. I can't see it happening again that bad. Non-con? Still formidable, but not as tough. Bad breaks? We'll see. Three-point shooting? I think we've addressed that. Should be better. Losing our top scorer? Well we lost Webster to graduation, but we need some of the new players to step in and replenish the scoring. But here's my problem. From last year's team we lose Webster, Morrow, Jacobson, Horne, and Fuller. They are replaced with Copeland, Palmer, Allen, Akenten, and Okeke. In an "on paper" world, it looks like we are bringing in a better five. But this reminds me of an earlier thread where Norm asked when was the last time we had a legit lineup going into next season. I've been excited about lineups going into the next seasons for the past few years now, and this year's no exception. But just take last year. Even with us losing White, I thought we'd be really good because we had a true center, a solid core of sophomores, and new players like Tshimanga, Anton Gill, Roby, Horne. But Gill really struggled. I assumed he'd take up the transfer baton of Petteway and White before him. Roby showed flashes of greatness, but overall he played like a freshman. Very up and down. Same with Horne, only worse on defense. Tshimanga showed some promise, still had a long way to go. So what player expectations will not be met this year? I don't know, but it seems I'm always full of hope and excitement before the season starts, then reality sets in by way of how they actually play. Naturally it's too soon to know whether this team will be better than last year. It should be. But this year I can't bring myself to be too excited until I see how guys like Copeland and Allen and Palmer play. I just can't wait for the season to start so I can know.

    Copeland

    Horne was always going to have a problem playing defense because of his tweener status, but I talked to Nana's high school coach about him and he's got a ways to go defensively as well. There are a ton of great athletes who aren't good defenders. Nebraska has Palmer, Taylor, Roby, McVeigh and Copeland at the 2, 3 and 4, and that doesn't include Gill or Thorbjarnarson either. I think the Horne comparison is a solid conservative projection for him. If he can steal minutes form the upperclassmen, good for him. But that's what it will take for him to have a consistent, significant role.

    I see Nana as this team's equivalent of Jeriah Horne. He'll be a spot up shooter, and if his shot is going in, he'll stay on the floor. If not, he'll get buried. At least that's how I see it. Just because someone is a great player in high school doesn't make them the same type of player in college. Adjusting to the college game takes time. Some adjust quicker, some take more time to adjust

    I expect that's where most people will put NU. And it's not unreasonable. I think they'll finish a lot higher than that, but it's not unreasonable to expect that from NU.

    No news is good news

    Everyday I search the Omaha World Herald and the husker internet sites for any information on the husker basketball players. I want to read stories about the players. I am disappointed almost daily. But as I look at it in perspective, I know that 'no news is good news.' No news means that no one transferred. No news means that everyone has their grades in order and are eligible this season. No news means no new injuries. No news means that no one was arrested. No news during the summer is good news. No news means everyone is on campus participating in the workouts and getting ready for the upcoming season. And I know that the summer is over and basketball season is right around the corner. And when the news is about the Huskers, I know it will only be good news.
