    I haven't checked messages in a free days so I missed this one! But 12dozen I can probably answer a few of your questions seeing as Nicea just went back to Lincoln on Tuesday after being home for 2 weeks. Like Proudparent said, the girls were due back yesterday. I know Nicea is helping with bball camp that starts today thru the weekend. And is also taking a summer class. She's excited bc she just moved into her campus apartment - which is very nice btw! She said all the girls actually get along really well. She tends to hangout (more) with Grace, Maddie & Hannah. Though they're not required to play, Nicea said alot of they play against each other almost daily at Hendricks or they team up and run the court over at the rec center lol ... She said the 2 transfer girls, Bria and Janay are very good. Bria is very quick and gets to basket and passes really well; and Janay is a great shooter. Son for anyone upset over RCJ transferring need not worry lol.. relationships with coaches seem to be good. The girls are still required to meet with their assigned coach once a week to talk about bball, classes, concerns, life, etc. Personally I hope they up their conditioning and move towards being an uptempo type of team. Because we're obviously going to be guard- heavy. Hope this helps a little bit! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    I appreciate everybody in this forum, and really love the support you all have for the girls. Of course I always watch what I say bc I do realize that potentially Nicea would be the one who'd have to answer for it. But I do enjoy sharing alot of the information, etc that you guys normally don't get to hear about. Again thank you! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Don't want to be to negative....but... One of the articles said she as going to some "gym" in Omaha, I think, to get in shape and improve conditioning as she prepares to go to irish land. So we weren't good enough here, for her to improve conditioning ??? I guess it's an admission she knows she hasn't been in good basketball shape at UNL.. I'm pretty sure that was an issue with Coach Amy.

    Actualfacts1, I think I speak quite possibly for every member associated with this women's forum when I say having you give us some insight no matter how much or little you divulge is some of the best information on this forum. I myself would much rather read what you put on this forum than what the local media provides. I encourage you to keep writing your views in our little corner of the web but don't write things that could possibly get you in some sort of hot water.

    So he should just crawl in a hole and die or something? Something bad you did when you were 15 should disqualify you from ever having joy in your life or experiencing success or finding happiness? How much penance would satisfy you? Is there some point in time that you would be willing to say he can move on with his life and try to be a normal guy? Or do you think we should brand a scarlet letter on his forehead and make him go around the earth yelling "unclean, unclean" like the lepers of biblical times? And, just for the record, I'm not an apologist for sex criminals. I'm just one of those strange individuals who truly believes you can vote against a school bond issue and it doesn't make you anti-child or that you can have compassion for those who have fallen afoul of the law and it doesn't make you pro-crime.

    Taylor is an intriguing guy and I agree with you that he isn't getting a lot of respect. I think part of that is that we think we know what we have with him and we know how good a team we were (or weren't) last year, and so we're naturally hoping that some of the unknown commodities on the team will turn out to be significant upgrades. But Taylor is an intriguing player. He didn't hit a 3-pointer until the Northwestern game in early January and, from that point on, he was 30% from downtown. He was never a volume shooter from deep but he definitely got better as the season went along. He hit 4 of his last 8 three point attempts. We would certainly take those numbers if that progress was something he could sustain. He has good length and he can get to the rim, maybe not as reliably as Webster, but he is a threat to penetrate. And, if he's shooting 30% or better from three, he's a guy you'll have to guard out there. In some ways, he's like a stretched-out Benny Parker: good D, adequate shooter, unselfish glue guy who can handle the ball. Except he's 6'5". He was third on the team in minutes last year, behind only Tai and Glynn. I think it's safe to say that if he gets displaced in the rotation, it's going to take someone really good to beat him out. And if that really good guy emerges, that's a good thing, right?

    I disagree, respectfully, with the statement he wasn't ready. I think people on here are talking a lot about what Isaiah wasn't able to do last year. But there's all kinds of things that he did do and did very well. One thing we have to keep in mind is that he was a freshmen. And freshmen make the adjustment from HS to major college hoops at different rates. Sure, Isaiah might have struggled at times last year, but there were other times where he really showed his upside. In my opinion, he needed to have a freshman year. Not a redshirt freshman year, but a freshman year where he gets a really good read on where he is and where he needs to get to. I see his role being a guy like Shavon Shields who takes his defenders off the dribble and can get to the rim. Isaiah showed that ability. He can spin in the lane, create some separation, and finish. Great attribute. He also, by the way, is a pretty skilled passer. The thing he most needs to work on offensively is his jumper. And given where his percentages were as a freshman, I think a complete overhaul wouldn't be out of the question. You won't find very many good shooters whose guide hand is basically behind the ball and the left elbow winged out like that. Look at any good shooter in the NBA, from Steph Curry and Kevin Durant to Kevin Love and Lebron James. None of them shoot like that. They all get that guide hand forward and the elbow more in. For the love of God, Isaiah, model your shot off of someone good like that. You have time this summer. Watch yourself on video or in the mirror.

    The players are due back on campus on June 1st but they don't start workouts until June 12th. I think that this upcoming team would have to be a Golden State Warriors team where they just run and gun. We need that Draymond type of player which I think Maddie can be that if she settles down. We saw signs of that towards the last couple of games. I think that the transfers will help but will it be enough? One transfer is putting in work this off season. I know she should be ready. Her trainer says that she's got that bounce. I hear that it's hard to find a big. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    If I had to pick which player wasn't getting their deserved share of respect this offseason, it'd be Taylor hands down. Is he incredible at any one thing? Debatable but he's an above average defender, a capable ball handler, and by season's end he had a pretty reliable mid-range game. Don't confuse this for "he's going to be all-conference" or "he deserves 25 minutes a game"...but I wouldn't be shocked if he had a good year, and I wouldn't mind at all if he was in the rotation.

    Pretty interesting to see how much everyone's opinions are varying at this point. I guess that's because everyone is building their lineups based on a different set of assumptions. My assumptions are: -Copeland is eligible the whole season -Allen is all that and a bag of chips -Only 8 guys get solid minutes every night, with everyone else fitting into the "gets major minutes in one game, and then doesn't get off the bench in the next one" role. I see Nana, Jack, and Gill as the most likely guys for this category -Returning starters get the benefit of the doubt in terms of starting, which benefits Taylor. However, I see Roby as a prototypical 6th man, and expect him to get starter-esque minutes...maybe even more minutes than one or two starters. I posted a projection back in April on how I expect Miles to use his lineup. Other than subbing in "Duby" for "unknown backup center," I don't see any difference in how I expect the minutes to shake out. PG: Allen (24) / Watson (16) / Taylor (spot minutes) SG: Watson (17) / Gill (11) / Palmer (7) / Taylor (5) SF: Taylor (15) / Palmer (8) / Roby (7) / Nana (5) / McVeigh (5) PF: Copeland (20) / Roby (15) / McVeigh (5) C: Jordy (24) / Duby (12) / Copeland (4) / Borchardt (spot minutes) Total minutes per game projections: Watson (33), Allen (24), Jordy (24), Copeland (24), Roby (22), Taylor (20), Palmer (15), Duby (12), Gill (11), Jack (10), Nana (5)

    I covered Justin all throughout his high school career. I like him a lot and he's a great pick-up. Like Jake said, he's better than any of the walk-ons from last year. However, you guys probably need to reel in expectations just a bit. For one, he's not a point guard; he's definitely a shooting guard. He handled the ball a decent amount and is capable of making some nice plays, but he's at his best off the ball running off screens. He also got little recruiting attention for a reason, and he wasn't going to be a D-I scholarship player anywhere. His first offer was from Benedictine and there wasn't much else beyond that. The problem is he is not a good defender at all. He's a pretty good vertical athlete but struggles laterally. To be clear, I'm a big fan of his. We had him at No. 9 in the class in our final 2017 rankings. I'm looking forward to seeing him in a Nebraska jersey. But if he's playing more than walk-on minutes, something went wrong with Allen, Palmer and Gill.

    and teams and players. Too much bad. More doesn't always mean good, too many bad teams, too many bad players to many bad games. If the league was cut in half and the top teams played in one league and the other half played in the second level. And then the bottom 3 or 4 teams were dropped down and the top 3 or 4 were moved up you would get better games during the season. Much like they do in soccer. Relegation is great for motivation for teams and fans. Fan based are crushed and teams are really held accounable when relegated. I just think all American Pro Sports are too water downed with too many bad teams, bad players, bad coaches and bad organizations.
