  1. New Starter?

    Surprised haven't seen it discussed but I think Taylor benched due to waiving off a time out in the penn st game with 50 seconds or so left.
  2. If we are going to maximize our talents, then we are going to have to max effort the glass. Palmer has to take it on himself to go and grab 6 or 7 boards a game. If Russell Westbrook can average a triple double, palmer can go and grab more boards than he is getting. Copeland has to man up and get boards as well. The small ball lineup will only work as well as or will to rebound is.
  3. I also think it is time to take the training wheels off Roby. We clearly are better when he is in there. Let him start and let him play as much as he can handle. If he gets in foul trouble, he gets in foul trouble. However, tonight he had one foul. He could have played far more than 23 regulation minutes. He should have played far more than 23 regulation minutes. We probably win the game if he played more than 23 regulation minutes. Hamstringing ourselves cannot be done.
  4. I would have ran some weave action like we do a lot, and have Palmer be a part of it. Explore layup opportunity and more importantly, get the defense moving. Pretty easy not to make a defensive mistake if not presented the opportunity to make one.
  5. The result has nothing to do with what I feel is the right lineup or play. Maybe it does for others. It is like poker. If I make a shitty call and slop out with bad pot odds, that doesn't mean I made a good play, just as if Watson slopped out and threw that in wouldn'g have made it a good play either.
  6. I prefer to have Palmer in the ballgame like some others. The past isn't always predictive of the future, especially when dealing with extremely small sample size. That being said, I don't care that much we left the same lineup in there, aside from one key time. At the end of regulation Palmer most certainly should have been in there, when the play should have been to pressure the defense. If the play is to let Watson just dribble and let one fly late, then we don't need Jack in for Palmer. We should have the best driver we have on the court as another option to get an easier shot. That part pisses me off greatly. We are not horribly coached, but these coaches do not have that very necessary "it factor" that can get us over the top in close ones. Gotta be able to make key decisions on the fly that are very important.
  7. Very frustrating. Awful job at the end of regulation. Would rather see the weave motion with Palmer back in the game there and hopefully someone finds a driving angle first and take a 23 foot contested shot if not at the end like we did anyway.
  8. Talent top 4 easy. Good team? That is very debatable. They would be frustrating to be a fan of for sure.
  9. I think we have been a little undervalued recently by Vegas, but they only give us about a 1 in 4.5 chance of winning this ballgame. We are going to have to play very well to win this one.
  10. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    And lets also hope he doesn't become a worse shooter after putting on said weight and muscle as some have here over the years.
  11. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    Me neither. Seems like a hasty decision to me. Let it play out, make the most of the season you are playing and figure it out at the end. Hopefully that still happens. Still believe his year end ceiling is a bit higher than our other post players.
  12. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    Agree very much with this post.
  13. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    I understand what you are saying. For me, the simple answer is I judge it myself with my instincts. Very few guys have gotten better at shooting the ball while here. That is a discouraging signal to my instincts. Some guys do get better on their own. Some programs seem to have a lot of guys get better. I don't consider us to be in that category.
  14. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    What Miles could do is develop players better. If that is part of the issue here, which it sounds like it may be, then I do get it a little bit. This staff has not developed players all that well in my opinion, and we have to be able to do that, so we are less reliant on transfers.
  15. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    He can most certainly play as the largest guy in a positionless type of lineup at the very least. Given that he would be checking a big guy, that makes him a 5 in such lineup. Way too many people put way too much emphasis on the exact positions anyway. That ship has sailed. As for getting matching up with York's physical play, it was only Snodgrass that was a bit of an issue from what I saw. Snodgrass physically would not take a back seat to many high school kids in the paint. He has the makings of a very skilled big man. This kid is going to be good as he fills in. Chance to be very very good. Obviously, needs to get stronger and more aggressive in general.
  16. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    Yeah, this sucks. No matter what one things of his skills, this hurts us. He was still our big with the most potential to be good at the end of the year, not to mention down the road. Roby is going to have to play a lot more, and learn how to avoid silly fouls. I would like to see him start the ballgame. Go to those other guys for large minutes if we need to. But no need to pigeonhole ourselves into playing them big minutes IMO(unless certain matchups dictate it).
  17. The crowd must get better

    Way too much predetermined crap on the video boards, and not near enough unpredetermined music by pep band etc.
  18. Moos Finally Attends a Nebrasketball Game

    Very strange indeed.
  19. Going forward

    Puked in my mouth. I despise him.
  20. A theory on Jordy's development

    Good point Norm. There could be something to that. In any event, he needs to get it figured out. We are going to have to play our true centers a certain amount of minutes, and I believe our highest ceiling involves Jordy playing the majority of those.
  21. Who cares. If they want to act like they won a national championship then so be it. They didn't though. Not all is fair in life.
  22. Going forward

    Would like to see Taylor minutes go down a little and Roby up and Gill up a touch. Center minutes down a touch. Need to keep letting Jordy try to get this figured out. We can be damn good if he does.
