    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.

    What have we done to give them reason not to pick us 13th?

    cool. I'll try to go to this game since it's right up the road a bit. If I do, I'll post a report.

    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.

    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.

    I move we appoint Norm to be the official HHC Bellwether. The difficult part will be getting him to agree about the neutering thing.

    Despite this being game where the kept score, use referees and we were able to watch it on our media devices, read into the results of this game at your own risk. A few observations. - Glynn is still good. - Palmer was the best player on the court. - If today is any indication, they'll be a better 3 point shooting team. - Gill did basketball things and didn't seem worse for the wear. - Going on the road for this game will prove to be a good call, I think. - Felt a little like Copeland settled for outside shots. Would like to see him inside the arc a bit more. - 48 points in the first half without getting much from the I-guys is a good sign. And to score 75 or whatever it was without much from them, too, is a bit of a statement of the depth of the team. - I liked that they had to fight through some adversity in holding off the late MSU charge and still come away with the win. That's a good thing you probably can't get in an exhibition. - All-in-all, I really am happy with how this turned out for NU. Most importantly, this game is to raise support for Hurricane Relief. To lend your support go here:

    Jordy: 11 points, 6 boards, 1 block, 1 assist in 16 minutes. Project that out to 24 minutes per game, and that's 16.5 points, 9 boards, 1.5 blocks, 1.5 assists. I'll take it.

    Nah, nobody knows anything about this team yet. Last anyone knew, NU wasn't very good and we lost three starters off a bad team. They should assume we'll be bad. Time will tell whether we actually are or not. Same goes for them, too, for that matter. Making any sort of judgment from this game is probably a bit of a fools errand.

    If you told me 76-72 before the game I would say hey, that's great! How it went down was a little weird, but we did enough to keep the lead and get the win. Jordy quietly had a great game I thought. Copeland will be fine.

    Team must have heard ya in the 2nd half, 9er (on not using up all the threes)! Gulp.

    48 in the first half gives one a lot to be excited about. 28 in second half is okay Hanging on after playing poorly in second half gives some hope! Road win vs a power 5 school even when it doesn't count has to be a boost.

    I will go with Miles' comments at the conference media festival. He said that when players think of themselves fitting into a particular spot in the lineup, they become a detriment to team unity when they're asked to play in another spot. On team chemistry alone, I'll say the trade was a slight net positive.

    Absolutely. This trade filled some needs. We gave up two starters and we got two starters, but the skillsets of the guys we got are better than the skillsets of the guys we gave up. And by giving up 4 roster spots in exchange for 3, we cleared up some space under the salary cap that allowed us to sign a couple of free agents in the off-season.* Great roster management by the coaching staff. * Given the current controversy and scandal involving shoe companies, I want to emphasize this is an allegory, a metaphor; it's not meant literally.

    I think part of that is that most people assume no one had their best game in the first exhibition action of the season. Also, you know some of the not-so-good stuff is stuff they'll learn from, like nearly blowing a 23 point lead. They'll learn from that. So, I think it's safe to assume some of the not-so-good stuff will, in fact, get better. And some of the good stuff is guys showing some of what they're capable of. Like James Palmer having a scoring mentality. Now we know a little about what the talk was about. Also, using my Tanner Borchardt comments as an example, I'm not just going by the box score when I say he'll contribute. Miles made comments in the post-game. The fact that he played in a game where Thomas Allen got 5 minutes and two freshmen didn't see the floor at all says something. He knows what he's supposed to be doing out there and he does the unglamorous stuff without making many mistakes. What I saw of him on the floor just confirmed what I'd been hearing, which leads me to say he'll contribute this year.

    It's a typo from the scorekeeper. Laws didn't play.

    That nickname has to go. Scoring 17 on only 6 shots is the anti-TP. His stat line was much more likely to have those numbers reversed. He was a volume shooter. If Palmer can get near that number on near that attempts through out the season, he’s on one of the all Big10 teams. Would love to see it but not betting on it yet.

    I think Miles was sending a message as well, that the freshmen need to work on some things before they are going to see the floor. We have more depth this year, so we can demand more from everyone. This is really the way it is suppose to be. If Allen and the others are the players we think they will be, they will respond.

    As to the freshmen: I think the coaches tried to treat this like a real game as much as possible. We have a legit opponent from a P5 conference, playing on the road, and they wanted it to be a realistic road game experience. That includes rotations. Seems like Mississippi State approached it the same way. Both teams wanted to play to win, not just play to get guys on the floor, etc. As to Copeland: Yeah, he shot poorly. Does anyone remember the first scrimmage that was open to the public after Terran became eligible? The year we made the dance? Remember how, in that first scrimmage, he couldn't buy a bucket? And we were all like, "Oh, shit, this could be a rough season if THAT is the guy we were hoping would score some points for us." Remember that? Let's get a larger sample size before we draw any conclusions about Copeland. One thing I will say is that if the perimeter shots aren't falling for him, I'd like to see him be able to do something else to get his scoring mojo going. If he's being defended by a guy who's not as quick or not as athletic or not as big, run some iso to give him a chance to create one-on-one and attack the basket on the dribble or at least draw fouls and get to the line. Yesterday, we were settling too much for perimeter jumpers instead of loving the rim at least a little bit. As to Palmer: The kid has a scoring mentality. Love having guys who just know how to get the biscuit in the basket. He's like Terran without the forcing-bad-shots thing. That'll make it a lot easier for everyone else to adjust to his style of play.

    Big jump for them. I saw that too. Also, we just proved we can win on the road against a top 60 team.

    Mississippi State was in the final four in the not too distant past. Those that remember, are likely similar to Husker football fans who struggle with losing, especially at home. They are further miffed because of the lack of history and respect for our basketball team. Good for us, bad for them. As I have indicated before, we are possibly in the position to provide some shock and awe. We need to take one step at a time, and not take any outing for granted. The step taken today was certainly promising.

    We probably would’ve played better in the second half if we hadn’t had such a large lead that we were trying to protect. We stopped being aggressive and started playing not to lose rather than playing to win and that always seems to get the other team back into the game. That’s what happened today. Something to learn from. Still very encouraging that we were able to get out to a 23 point lead.

    Here's a way of thinking to clear it up. If we were given a 49% chance to win each and every single conference game, we would be favored to win 0 games, but projected to win 8.82 games (0.49*18).
