  2. Miles extension poll

    Damn! Forced to give another Up-arrow for 'Lede.' (But what do you expect from a Journalism major. Didn't have to look it up this time tho, cuz you've used it before. )
  3. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Up-arrow just for 'Redound.' (Isn't that just like Norm; making us have to look things up )

  7. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    It would seem the April 10th date would negate the purpose of so many underclassmen declaring for the draft. I thought the principal advantages of doing so were to 'test the water' so to speak and for a player to get an outside evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of his game. If players must withdraw by April 10th, it doesn't seem like there would be time for any of this to occur.
  8. Thanks for mentioning the TBL Video embeded in the news article, Bugs! I had passed over it; it is a real good listen. Located out-of-State, I'm getting a new appreciation for Sam McKewon. Somehow since it is verbal conversation, he may have been using the term 'couple' more as a figure of speech, rather than specifically meaning two. He also could have been using 'Seniors' loosely, meaning non-returning players. Reading the article, I think one of the special incoming players would be Ashtyn Veerbeek. She is the highest ranked player of the incoming class, and I think I read somewhere that Iowa was recruiting her hard and really wanted her. Again he might have been using 'couple' as a figure of speech and there might be more than two he was referring to. In any event, I liked his analysis of the team and think prospects look good for the future.

  10. This may be the article Steve refers to above. An excellent read by Sam McKewon. Discusses the disappointing loss to AZ State, areas for improvement; incoming class, and outlook for next year. http://www.omaha.com/huskers/womens-basketball/mckewon-amy-williams-making-sure-husker-women-embrace-expectations-after/article_92a178c0-7b9d-5b07-836a-40cb97472d5e.html McKewon: Amy Williams making sure Husker women embrace expectations after surprise season

  15. Happily, you don't Have to Listen to 'em (hick for 'them' ). There's always those superb BTN or Network Announcers. Solves the 'sync-up' problem Too!
  16. Bye bye UConn

    The WBB Final, ND vs Mississippi State, should be an exciting game! Tomorrow, 4/1/18, Easter Sunday @ 5 pm Central, ESPN. (Mississippi State is the team who bounced UConn in last years Final Four, 66-64 also in OT, losing to So Carolina in the Final). ND played only 6 players because of season-ending injuries to several players during the year; and likely would not have made it this far without the transfer, and granting of immediate eligibility to Jessica Shepard from Nebraska. Shepard was the third highest scorer for ND, with 15 points. Best Wishes to Jess Shepard (except when she plays vs the Huskers )

    Now its 56-36 @ 2:55 in third Q Miss State is Toast!
  19. What to do with Miles contract?

    Perhaps not; But anything less and he runs the risk of being thought of as another Shawn Eichorst! It is 'only' his 'Credibility' that is at Stake! I think our biggest 'Secret Weapon' in this whole affair is: 'Bill Moos' - Any decision made regarding the coach for next year I'd much rather have a 'Bill Moos' making it than a 'Shawn Eichorst.'

  22. It's like adding Air Conditioning; You may have to upgrade your Electrical Service! (But in the old days (before upgrading the BB Software), there was a limitation - only a maximum of 15 emojis were allowed in a post; I had to ration them. Made it hard for those that are emoji-impaired! ) EDIT: I saw this posted elsewhere: "As a footnote to this season, there were three teams that beat Michigan by more than 15 points: #11 North Carolina, 11/29/2017, 71 - 86 Nebraska, 1/18/2018, 52 - 72 #2 Villanova, 4/2/2018, 62 - 79 Pretty good company... I hope it is an indicator of things to come rather than an outlier."

    And while we're talking about LoyoIa-Chicago, I wonder if we can swap 'Jeans.' She looks like she is "All IN!" (I know it's not an even swap; so we'd probably have to pay some extra Too Boot! )
