  1. OT: Eclipse Plans

    We live in Omaha, wife had me take the day off, we''re taking the boys to Grandma and Grandpa's in Hastings. Two minutes of totality. Problem is, they won't remember it.
  2. The Isaac Copeland watch

    Oh, I'm good with all that. It's just a weird statistic to me.
  3. The Isaac Copeland watch

    Wait...Andrew White set a season record for 3's...5 more than McNamara?? While his stats, and Syracuse's accomplishments weren't jaw-dropping, that's an impressive statistic. Didn't McNamara have the equivalent of 12 extra games played when Syracuse beat UConn that year?

  5. Breakout player

    I'd like to know how many 3's each of them hit this year. I wouldn't even feel comfortable ranking that 1 through 4. Or rebounds, or points, or steals, or assists, or +/-......Even though there's only two freshmen, I wonder if this is the game-changing class (positive or negative), now that Glynn's is depleted. These guys might get it done. If they don't pan out, it will likely get ugly real fast. But it won't.
  6. Who Starts?

    Not to highjack the thread because we have some great opinions going, but, Allen is not getting enough mention in the thread as a whole. I have never said he'd start, but, when we talk about rotations and subs, we're still not mentioning him (or Akenten). These dudes are going to help...not sure how much...but they are going to factor in this year.
  7. Who Starts?

    Roby hinted in Barfknect's article today that they might/could go big. I think that lineup is going to happen. Honestly though I see Taylor or McVeigh starting at times. If Copeland can't play out of the gates I'd expect taylor to play guard and then Palmer the 3 spot.

    This poll is fascinating to me. I kinda wish the vote was closer so I felt like all 5 are ready to be studs...but there is so much hinging on each situation (health, depth, etc.) I'd like to see Copeland cleared and healthy - that would be huge for our season outlook. But real close to that I'd like to see the new guards each average 7 or 8 each which isn't likely but what if they averaged 21-24 combined? My optimism for this season has not dwindled...even though I've been optimistic the past 3 seasons.
  9. I'm not sure what the correct answer is, but, I am really intrigued what they all bring, especially Allen, Akenten and Copeland (based on a combination of talent, need, and duration of stay. I believe all 5 could be pretty good.
  10. Season Tickets

    2 questions I think much of the board would like to hear: How have you been doing healthwise? It has been a few years since we had an update (does your son still post on the board?) When are you going to get those basketball tickets back?

    http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=100&ATCLID=211482804 Here is an FYI link for those interested. Does anyone know what it means that the KU game is not guaranteed? And, what about our free Runza??
  12. Next Years Starting 5

    If I had to pick which player wasn't getting their deserved share of respect this offseason, it'd be Taylor hands down. Is he incredible at any one thing? Debatable but he's an above average defender, a capable ball handler, and by season's end he had a pretty reliable mid-range game. Don't confuse this for "he's going to be all-conference" or "he deserves 25 minutes a game"...but I wouldn't be shocked if he had a good year, and I wouldn't mind at all if he was in the rotation.
  13. Next Years Starting 5

    It's been discussed in another thread to a degree, but it's going to be crucial to see where Roby best fits. I think offensively he is best as a 3 until he gets 3-pt range. If he hits the 3 at a 38% clip..playing the 2 with Jordy Copeland Jack would be a nice, long lineup. Defensively he's pretty good running the 1-3-1. I like him up top but he can cover the whole court with skip passes, bounce passes...any kind of pass. At top of 1-3-1 he's going to get his share of steals and slams. So to me, how he fits will give us a good idea of how the team goes. And I feel he will be the most improved player on our team. If he's slightly better than last year, then you have to hope Allen, Akenten, Taylor etc can play big minutes.
  14. Next Years Starting 5

    In my eyes, no player on this roster lacks talent. In the past NU has always had 2-3 guys that were either not good or only had one small talent or thing they didn't suck at. These players all have tools. So I don't think you'll see a scholarship guy play only the final minute of blowouts and once every 8 games. They're all gonna play, if healthy. And it's going to vary widely from game to game. I don't think that's a good thing or a bad thing. But you might see all scholarship players play 20 minutes every few games. I've got a weird, good feeling about this season. You don't have to agree with me. I'm just telling you what I'm feeling.
  15. Next Years Starting 5

    Not sure this is the best place for it, but has anyone heard eligibility news for our roster next year? Such as Palmer and Copeland (see also: health)? I know Copeland is NCAA so not much insider there. But if we know their eligibility a starting 5 would be a heck of a lot easier to predict.
