    Rivalry

    I'm aware I'm in the minority on this opinion and always have been...but I've honestly never cared if you like the football team but not the basketball team because who am I to say who you can or can't root for? I don't agree with it, but I don't care if you do it. Maybe it's because I'm around a lot of fans here in Omaha that do just that. Grew up going to Husker football games, but Creighton bball games instead of Husker bball games. A lot of grade schools (especially parochial schools) here in Omaha give out free Creighton tickets to students and it makes them grow up liking Creighton bball. Are they just supposed to flip the switch and hate them if they also like the football team, or end up attending UNL? Again...I don't agree with it...but I can understand why it happens.

    Rivalry

    It's easily Creighton. The hate is real between each fan base, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I compare our rivalry with Creighton to the Xavier Cincinnati rivalry. Both are also in different conferences, but if you asked each fan base who they their rival is they would say each other.

    2018 College World Series

    LSU and Mississippi State are the only SEC teams I root for to make it to Omaha just because of their great fan bases who come to party at the tailgates. Give me MSU with at least one of Tennessee Tech or Stetson to mix it up a little this year.

    NBA Playoffs

    Based on the game last night, the Warriors know how to guard Korver too so I agree that he isn't going to be as serviceable this series either. Especially since he can't guard Klay at all. Hopefully he gets his shot going for the rest of this series. I just can't stand watching JR do his signature 4 crossover dribbles then fade away shot much more.

    NBA Playoffs

    Also I have to give Lue a little bit of criticism. Why....is....JR....playing...so....many....minutes? Offense is atrocious and giving nothing on D = bench. Put Green or Korver in more.

    NBA Playoffs

    What was crazy to me was how different it looked between real time and slow motion. Real time you think it's a charge all day, but slow mo you can see Lebron is kind of dipping his shoulder a little and isn't quite set, but the fact that even slow motion was kind of subjective I don't think you can just overturn that call. Officiating has been awful the entire playoffs unfortunately.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    Any insight on these circumstances? Seems pretty hush hush on all fronts.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    I could be completely wrong, but something still feels off to me about this whole Gates situation. I just find it hard to believe he realized he didn't like Florida after a couple weeks of courting recruits for them and quits his job. Again, I am probably wrong, but just very odd to me.
  9. No way an AD comes out and publicly says he's keeping a coach....and then fires him. If Moos was indeed looking around he's been denied and is done gauging interest until next year or years after

    Xavier Johnson isn't N

    Haha it was a pretty broken jumper. We're allowed to say that now.

    Ty Lue - Rested?

    When Lebron goes to the Sixers next year his life will be much easier

    Kenya Hunter

    Under your assumption that we're going to throw big money at a proven winner, I'm interested to hear what your ideal coaches would be if Altman is out.

    Kenya Hunter

    We don't even know how true this is but man this just sucks. It may come down to Kenya wanting to make his way back to the east coast, considering he's from the DC area. And if a proven coach like Hurley is offering you a spot on his staff at a school whose name carries well, like UConn, it's hard to pass up. But the fact that we could be a serious competitor in the B1G next year with Palmer and Copeland returning makes this worse.

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    This is spot on. The reality is the only way Erstand is leaving anytime soon is if he chooses to.

    Question?

    They were actually pretty close. I remember USA Today came out with their final bracket just before the Selection Sunday show and it had Creighton as one of the First Four out. I think they were more of a 10 or 11 seed, but the logistics helped them. The fact that they couldn't play in the Midwest region and couldn't be paired against another Big East team inflated their seeding a bit.

    Question?

    Villanova played an average game tonight and still wiped Michigan. Fact is Michigan didn't play anyone on their way to the championship. Hell they shouldn't have even gotten past Houston.

    Postseason Tourney Talk

    Screw Michigan. They made it to the championship, but now I'm done with the rooting for the conference. It's post season, has no bearing on our season, and I'm personally tired of Wagner and this little run they're on. Go Cats

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    On top of the fact that all they need to do is show Doug highlights and say "this is the exact role we want you to play next year". Not a very hard sell.

    Matt Schick prank

    The Schick and Nick show will never be topped by anyone, but I actually enjoy Bahe's show. It's Unsportsmanlike Conduct that is brutal to listen to in my opinion.

    Matt Schick prank

    That was hilarious. "We laughed and we laughed and we laughed..."

    knee jerk reaction

    You cannot be serious right? If we would've went to Omaha and won we would be in the tournament right now if everything else played out the way it did. I understand the hate for Creighton in a rivalry but putting them on the same level as UNO is laughable. Rassmussen DOES NOT hate us. It looks like we weren't really in a position to really be brought up.

    Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    He said it to Andy Katz on one of those NCAA March Madness 5 minute interviews they've been doing on twitter. So it's not like he wasn't thinking about his answers.

    Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    No I thought the exact same thing when I read that.

    I honestly only think St. Bonaventure is making it out of those 3
