  1. Fair enough. I would suggest that there is a pretty big difference between 20% and the "1/3 to 1/2 statement" you made in your original post, but whatever. If there is a lot of blue there, it means that, for the most part, Nebraska fans sold their tickets since the arena is allegedly sold out to season ticket holders. I suspect that some of the blue would be friends or family of season ticket holders that the season ticket holders chose to bring as guests.
  2. Has there ever been a game in Lincoln where the crowd is 1/3 to 1/2 blue? I do not recall one.
  3. Probably getting limited minutes because of fouls. 4 fouls in 9 minutes last night (averaging a foul almost every two minutes on the floor)...hard to find him much more playing time under the circumstances.
  4. Times have changed; shooting threes in transition is common place now and most teams even practice this.
  5. Dayton has outstanding coaching. How they didn't lose him last off season is pretty miraculous.
  6. It is silly to say that a successful or unsuccessful noncon revolves around one opponent.
  7. Its tough to quantify good versus great - everyone will have their own feelings. To me, an all conference player, first or second team, qualifies as great rather than good.
  8. Foster was battling cramps all game which obviously impacted his shooting. He also seemed to settle for contested outside jumpers instead of going to the rim - credit for that goes to the big Wisconsin D that didn't allow many driving lanes. He also missed one dunk . No doubt that Mo stirs the drink, but Khyri Thomas played an incredible game. He looks so much more confident than last year. The two biggest difference sin this year's Creighton team versus the recent past: much more athleticism and they actually play pretty solid perimeter defense (Foster and Thomas are very good defenders). Rebounding will certainly need to improve though.
  9. It doesn't count for RPI purposes and it doesn't count as a win by the selection committee criteria. Because it doesn't impact RPI, it may be better than playing your typical MEAC or SWAC team.
  10. Five minutes? Sheesh, I could see a whole lot more time than that! It seems to take at least five minutes every time they go to the replays....
  11. Experience is greatly overrated in college basketball, especially if the player is gifted. Experience allows you to build on skills, it allows you to better understand the nuances of the game, it allows you to build your body and it allows you to meld into the college experience. Many of the top flight players of today are graduates of AAU programs. They are used to being away from home for extended periods of time. They have had individual coaching and those coaches work on the players game and body. Where experience may help is with the one, two and possibly some three star kids. They may need to have the first two years of college to catch up, so to speak. We now have players that evolve from the former. In the past, many of our players were from the latter group. We are going to be better than fine this year. Expect the unexpected. Are you suggesting that past Nebraska players did not play for AAU programs? I find that hard to believe.
  12. He's not playing overseas this season. Him not committing to a college isn't because he can't find one; it's because this is how he operates. This. The kid was an all conference caliber performer and upper tier shooter that will only tie up a scholarship for one year. I suspect almost every school with an open scholarship would love to have him for that lone year.
  13. Think he wants to follow Hurley?
  14. I thought there were measures against this. There are against an athletic scholarship player taking academic scholarships. Like Shavon couldn't have just taken an academic ship to help with paying for school if we had extra guys who needed scholarshipsI don't know the specifics but I think Creighton has done it each of the past 3 years.-McDermott (walkon) -That Cal grad transfer last year (walkon) -the 7 foot red head this year (graduate scholarship) I could be wrong but I think I'm right. Doc got an extra scholarship one year too. I'm not sure the NCAA can do a heckuva lot to keep a kid from paying his own way. What are they going to do - tell a kid (or kid's parents) that they can't spend their money how they want? That might give rise to a legitimate claim of unconstitutionality. The NCAA can restrict usage of financial aid programs, but keeping a kid from writing a check is likely out of their jurisdiction.
  15. That's a nifty little pickup for Purdue. If he's healthy, it substantially changes their outlook I would think.
