  1. Xavier Johnson is N

    The Nebrasketball curse is alive and well.

  3. Creighton?

    I was lucky enough to get some free tickets to the Charlotte evening session for Friday. Very pleased to witness the bleubirds drop a big blue turd. They looked like absolute crap. KSU hounded Foster the entire game and denied him the ball and the McDermott brain trust really didn't try to do anything until about 3 minutes left to get him the ball. I think he finished with 5 points and 60% of that came on a meaningless 3 with about 2 minutes. The entire game he just floated around the 3 point line from the corner to the wing and the KSU guy just stuck on him wherever he went. I don't recall him ever cutting across the lane or to the basket. Just poor preparation/coaching after seeing how KSU intended to limit his impact on the game. I think Thomas only had 7 points, as well. I just don't totally understand how Nebraska can keep losing to them - they just aren't that good. To top it off, I got to witness the first 16-1 upset in history! It was awesome in the 2nd half as the crowd support for UMBC grew with almost every possession. Virginia fans literally did not have a single thing to cheer about the entire game. I don't know what was wrong with them, but they sure got easily rattled. UMBC, which must have given up about 4-5 inches per position across the board, totally shut down Virginia's offense and boxed out/rebounded with a passion that I wish Nebraska could figure out. In the end, UMBC absolutely dominated every phase of the game and if KSU plays like they did in their first game and UMBC can even approach how they played, I could easily see a 16 in the Sweet 16. P.S. Bonus point for having Texass lose also.
  4. Maryland pregame chatter

    I think they'll beat Maryland this time. Without a heaping helping of home cooking from the refs, the Huskers would have beat them on their own court last week. Go Big Red! Of course, I fully expect the Terps to have the zebras' help in this game as well. Really need to take care of the ball - had quite a few sloppy turnovers in the second half against michigan.
  5. Well, I'm glad I couldn't get BTN2Go to work. What an embarrassing debacle. For goodness sakes, Iowa took these clowns to OT. NIT, here we come.
  6. Way to show 'em you belong boys.
  7. It figures the patented Nebrasketball drought would show up early.
  8. Frickin' BTN2Go not working for me.
  9. Big Ten Tournament

    Ha. That's the comment I was going to make.
  10. Big Ten Tournament

    Yeah... I just hope they aren't ready to go at tip and we aren't Rusty. We have to come out ready to play Yep. Need to jump on them from the start and make them play catch up.
  11. Big Ten Tournament

    In my book, since he played at NW, he could also be called a poindexter.
  12. Big Ten Tournament

    They had been, but I wouldn't particularly describe this effort today as very good. Hopefully they play the same tomorrow.
  13. Big Ten Tournament

    Play good D and NU should be fine.
