  1. I think the NCAA should review all egregious flops and institute a one-game ban to the offenders. If an official makes a bad call for an offense, there's a good chance you'll see a flop on the ensuing defensive possession in hopes of getting the make-up call
  2. I was happy that the NIT experimented with this format, but I think you really need distinct 10 minute quarters with a buzzer and play stoppage. This adds to the excitement as there's additional chances for buzzer-beating shots, and faster play as offenses push for two-for-one possessions at the close of the quarter.
  3. I'm all for moving from halves to quarters (4 x 10 minutes) and adopting the NBA's foul rules. Basically, the defense has four fouls to give per quarter, offense gets (2) shots on the fifth foul. Only defensive and loose-ball fouls count towards this total. The exception is in the final two minutes of each quarter, whereupon the next foul committed will place the offense into the foul bonus, and second foul yields free throws. This is basically the foul bonus rules for NCAA WBB as well, minus the changes for the final two minutes. No one pays for a ticket thinking, "I sure hope I get to see a lot of free throws tonight!" This change would allow up to (16) fouls to be committed by a defense throughout the game before any free throws were rewarded. Under current NCAA MBB rules, that number is 12. I also think that the half court violation should be moved from 10 to 8 seconds like the NBA.
  4. As a former student tutor at the Hewitt Academic Center in what would've been the 2005-2006, I'm not surprised to see this was the start of the APR dark ages. During my initial orientation, I was actually told that certain members of the mens basketball team were problem children. I remember telling my trainer that I was actually a big fan of the team and that I hoped I could help to turn that around (). He told me to need not worry because I most likely wouldn't have any Nebrasketballers. The way the system was organized, tutors would only work with student athletes that were taking the same course numbers and my major didn't really include any courses that were frequented by student athletes. I think this was a big flaw in the system...basically suggests that someone with a higher level understanding of a subject isn't capable of teaching to a more remedial level? Also, for once in my life my gender may have also limited me. After each meeting, the student tutor and student athlete would provide feedback on how things went. Apparently a lot of the members of the mens basketball team would downgrade their male tutors until getting a female tutor
  5. Does this mean that we will also have to reschedule our annual mid-December home loss to an opponent of questionable RPI?
  6. Four makes per game is essentially Steph Curry level which is going to be tough to replicate. Even if Allen's utilization is high as a freshman, I feel his ceiling for attempts is going to be 3 or 4 per game. If his game is sufficiently diverse such that he isn't only a 3-point specialist, then some of his attempts will be from closer-in. Maybe someone like Palmer or Nana (less likely) fulfills the sharpshooting role next year and and is also good for 4 attempts per game? But they would do that at the expense of some of McVeigh's shots. Our offense was pretty stagnant last year, but I'm also hoping we improve our FG% so overall attempts may not change much. The offense we are replacing from last year: Tai: 14 FGA per game Morrow/Jacobson/Horne/Fuller: 18 FGA per game With Glynn/Jordy/Roby/Taylor/Gill (hopefully) getting more production and the addition of Palmer/Copeland/Nana and to a much lesser extent Duby, I don't think there's going to be 10+ FGA to give to Allen.
  7. Agreed. As the season wore on, it became evident that Taylor was the most well-rounded player on the roster (next to Tai, of course). Last year's squad gave up the most points of any in the Tim Miles era, and the perimeter defense was terrible too as evidenced by the highest 3FG% allowed by a Tim Miles Nebraska team. Even if his shot isn't falling, Taylor has a sizable role on next year's team.
  8. No, I'm just not easily impressed. A pair of $60 Stan Smiths with Miles' face painted on the tongue doesn't move the needle for me. There's no market for that and it generates very little interest for those outside of the program. It looks cheap and gimmicky. Wearing a pair of Adidas Human Races that sold out everywhere in seconds and resells for 4x it's MSRP is more intriguing. While I don't typically advocate that we follow Rick Pitino's lead, he has seemed to figure this one out:
  9. So you think Anton Gill coming off yet another surgically repaired knee is a better defender than the recently crowned defensive MVP of the team? Taylor had 4 steals in a game. Twice. That's as many steals as Gill had all season. There's no player on this team I want to succeed more than Gill, but I think he may struggle to find a spot. But he does have excellent length and if he can hit the 3, then I think he can pull some minutes from Palmer and Taylor.
  10. Two of the three aren't returning, so I guess we just need to convince Jordy to take of those Jordan 12s. Adidas has a lot more hype than Jordan/Nike right now, so I'm really not worried about sneaker wars with potential recruits. It would be nice if Adidas showed us a little more love, though. We need Tim Miles to embrace sneaker culture the way Mike Riley has:
  11. But should I be concerned that 3 of these 5 guys are in Nikes/Jordans? #3StripeLife
  12. Not surprised to see these faces, although very impressed at Glynn's accomplishments in the weight room! I think that in Glynn, Evan, and Jordy we are looking at the leaders of next year's team.
  13. RIP Darryl Dawkins. Somewhere in the afterlife, Chocolate Thunder and Craig Sager are busy stunting on each other to see who has the more colorful wardrobe. But Chocolate Thunder is purely a nickname, administered by Stevie Wonder. Because Dawkins dunked so hard Wonder could feel it
  14. Hard not to respect a no-nonsense guy that plays lock-down defense and leads a team without demanding a lot of personal accolades. Plus, he went by the name Cookie Belcher. I would think that he has one of the most entertaining names in college basketball history. Way better food reference than Tacko Fall. Less sexual-sounding than Fat Lever or Magic Johnson. Not as blasphemous as God Shammgod...
  15. I mean, he is the most decorated and celebrated Husker basketballer of all time. I think that warrants the correct spelling of his name.
