    God I hope so. It would be hard to be a Husker fan with him on the bench.

    I think Allen will average low double figures. I don't think he's going to be a typical freshman at all. Being a seriously elite shooter can offset a whole lot of things. This is kid is a scorer first, and he can do it from three, he can pull up, and he has a soft floater. Playing alongside Glynn means they're both going to have a lot of open shots in transition, kickouts, etc. They remind a lot of KU's backcourt this past season.

    Updated with the recent commit. Now, I'd look for another Andrew White/Anton Gill kind of transfer player, probably shooting guard, who would sit a year and join Roby and Tshimanga as juniors in a year, and then a freshman big like Isaiah Chandler. That'd get us to 13 and that's how I'd fill out this roster.

    Coaches deserve an A+ for recognizing our situation post transfers, seeing what we had left, and filling where we needed fills. Capturing Allen was such a bonus! Is it November yet?

    Padding the Stats: Finding an Identity

    If anyone is interested in my opinion on an area that needs to be fixed and you will see results..... anyone.... anyone...? Ok you pulled my leg, it's offensive transition. And I'm on year 6 now of complaining about this. In general, I've noticed that good teams - regardless of tempo - either get a great look in the first 6 seconds of a possession or they then look to work the ball around a bit and spend some time distorting the defense to get a paint touch for lay ups or to create kick out potential. And it's not even about scoring early or fast. A great, purposeful, aggressively ran offensive transition game can put the defense on their heels from the start of the possession. I've seen very little purpose, defined structure, or sense of urgency in the way we attack in transition. Getting three guys to run hard, 1 right at the rim look to get over the top passes, or seal off of kick aheads, and 2 guys sprinting wing lanes to the corner - you can really flatten the defense early and put them in reactive mode. Can't walk the ball up and run a set every possession. Allows the defense to get in a rhythm. Good point guards know how to push the ball, see if they're going to score or get a good look early, then pull it out and get their team set. Which is a lot easier to do now because you've already made them guard "something."

    Well, I'm willing to poke the bear here, but I find a lot more objectivity from Jacob and the World-Herald people than I find at LJS. There's a reason Sipple is know as Steve Suckup. I don't always agree with Sam, Lee and the rest, but they're experienced journalists and I respect their (sometimes negative) opinions. Pleasing HHC isn't the sign of good journalism.

    Well, I seem to sense some doubts about Jacob Padilla's insights so I thought it was interesting that Eichorst said the same thing. I'm never going to post a dozen times a day and go back three years to see what somebody said, so you win the day, I guess.

    This is his 3rd endorsement of Tim since Christmas. Seems like their relationship is a lot better than the fans and media like to think. I guess people/media like to stir things up and create drama.

    One thing I think needs to be made very clear about this. This isn't a case of a rat leaving a sinking ship. This isn't "turnover among assistants" that people often fret about. This is a simple deal of a guy wanting to be a coach rather than an administrator of sorts and doing what he can to get his foot in the door. That's all. Good luck to Teddy.

    Well I'll go on record and probably upset many of you following this forum. Due to the fact that I wasn't privy to all the information on coach Yori's firing I am still standing by our athletic director. Even though I was a big coach Yori fan for many years I believe he must of had justification for doing so. I do believe coach Williams inherited a mess and will need time to clean it up. All i'm looking at is reasonable progress each year.

    He was Freshman All-Conference. It would be silly to expect more out of Allen. That being said if he wants to go off and be a freshman all American, I'm good with that too.

    Nice win. 3 home runs accounted for 9 runs. Good pitching. It would be huge if we can go to Columbus and get a sweep. Ohio State is not a very good team, but if you find that one pitcher that shuts us down, we could lose. I think our goal should be a conference championship. Kind of disappointed we didn't win one in our first 5 years.

    He gave something of a tacit one after the first of the year, I think. Then, as things started to go south, rumors swirled and play fell of precipitously and he could have quelled all the speculation and didn't. Allowed a whole lot of drama carry on longer than it needed to.

    State of the Program

    Have been following the state of the program. However, I'm not following how Eichorst is the cause? Apologies in advance if I'm asking for some sort of inside info. To be fair, I'm kind of interested in why Eichorst catches so much shade overall. Obviously I realize he's the AD and there hasn't been much to cheer about on the basketball side for either squad, It seems to me he's been supportive of coaches and made a great hire on the football side. He was evidently essential in pushing through those recruiting changes which benefit Nebraska greatly in recruiting as well. Would take time to link that stuff but just a quick lunch post here. Mainly was reading about the changes that allow schools to pay the way for parents on official visits, and what a game changer that could be going forward.

    Allen is a lot better player than Bohannon, so I absolutely expect at least that level of production. Given his scoring ability, I would be disappointed with anything below double figures.

    Last year I remember watching Bohannon for Iowa hit 3's and make an impact on the game as a freshman and wondered "why can't we get a guy like that". I'm wondering if we got a guy like that with Allen. I did some checking into his stats, here they are: http://247sports.com/player/jordan-bohannon-28352. My question is, would you be happy if Allen ended up with stats like Bohannon did in his first year? To summarize, 28 mpg, 9 ppg, 35% 3pt

    I'd expect him to be all in verbally though I have a hunch we won't see a contract extension. There are some very compelling reasons to keep Miles but if Tom Crean would have expressed interest in coming here does anyone think that Miles would still be the coach?

    UNO

    The Summit League definitely embraces the Great Plains area and is a nice little niche conference. However, if you're looking to play with the bigger boys the Missouri Valley would be a great move. It's all about fit and not moving up too quickly though. UNO's endowment is $72M (6th of 9 in the Summit League) while in their current state they would be 10th of 11 in the Missouri Valley. These are also 'win the tourney or bust' types of leagues most years, so which conference helps attract the right level of talent and gets you to the tournament more often than not?

    Next season starters?

    this was a big statement from SE (taken from the LSJ men's article). lately, i think this fits either program. "We have to go get a couple of these signature players in our program that are all about the team — that are rugged, championship-flight type of young men, who have played in championship programs, who understand there's a lot of work that needs to be done, and there's a lot of attention that needs to be paid to one another, collectively, and not just the person looking in the mirror." Hear that, Andrew White? Ed Morrow? Michael Jacobson?

    What else do people expect Eichorst to say? Not quite wanting to buy this buddy/buddy show, but we shall see ... next year is still kind of do or die despite them saying the opposite, although I understand Eichorst cannot say that either. Fact is, even in the long tortured history of Nebrasketball, the last 5 years (save a 4 week run ... which was great mind you) has been exceedingly bad. I also am not buying all the positivity from Barfknecht of late either ... yes, transfers are the name of the game today but we are on the high end of that number. Especially when considering 2 of the 4 constantly referenced reasons to maintain hope for the future decide to leave. I have been a season ticket holder for a long time (since 1990) and will remain a fan and continue to attend games, but I don't really see any tangible reason to like "the direction the program is heading." Yes, recruiting has improved but on some level that almost makes the futility less defendable. We'll see ... Miles has surprised from the get go, so I wouldn't put anything past him.
