  1. Roby (is Good)

    Totally agree on the upside of Roby. When I started thinking about others like him, my mind went to Bernard Garner. I don't remember Garner being able to handle the ball quite as well but Bernard was a force to be reckoned with. FYI Bernard played from 95-97.
  2. It's Time to Subscribe

    I do have a subscription to the OWH and appreciate the paper for lots of reasons. But even if everyone on this board followed suit, it would not change the systemic forces that are leading to the demise of print journalism. The internet is here to stay and many print outlets of all sorts -- not just newspapers -- will simply not survive.
  3. Road to 20

    I love that we are having to search the way back records for comparisons with how well this team is playing. I also hate it because it means we don't have a lot of great seasons to compare but I want to stay positive.
  4. The Refs generally swallowed their whistles all night long which is OK by me. However, they had some really awful calls and no calls. For instance, why wasn't #10 for Maryland hit with a "T" for coming over to the Husker huddle after Palmer's 1st half dunk and the subsequent Maryland timeout. I know he got run over by Watson and perhaps Watson should have been called for a foul. But Watson's thing wasn't flagrant. The Maryland player had no business heading toward the Husker bench and should have been rung up.
  5. Favorite Nebrasketball Moments

    Student section (and others) chanting "Sit Down Norm" to Mizzou coach Norm Stewart. Not sure when it happened but it was so much fun! Edit: I do remember that Nee was coach and Pike had a good night shooting 3s.
  6. Time to eat a little crow

    Thought those became extinct when that meteor hit.
  7. Blow them up! Using the Rodenator was SO MUCH FUN! Oh, for clarity's sake, the is a stock YouTube video. I am not featured.
  8. How about we take the double bye and just win the stinking tournament!!!!!
  9. Next Two Games

    Since we have to split, IMO a road win vs OSU does more good for us than a road loss at Rutgers does us harm.
  10. Only under the skilled care of a sports proctologist. Left untreated it just "sits" there and festers.
  11. The Isaac Copeland watch

    How many Wheaties box tops are required to get the Isaac Copeland watch? I have my stamped, self-addressed envelope all ready to mail!
  12. Looking forward

    At one point I believe there was a question about Palmer's academic standing. Any word on that?
  13. NCAA Tournament

    This! The game was nearly unwatchable.
  14. The power of coaching

    In comparing the Huskers to Mich, per ESPN stats, team FG shooting percentages were: Michigan -- 48.3% (38.5% from 3) -- FT was 77.9% Huskers -- 41.6% (32% from 3) -- FT was 71% IMO we were (and still are) one consistent outside shooter away from being an NCAA team. I believe Miles that he HAD that shooter before AWII's transfer and GIll's injury. So I am thinking you must mean Miles should have kept AWIII from transferring and/or Gill from getting hurt. If it is something else, please explain -- and try to be specific -- what Belein did as a coach that made his team such significantly better shooters so we can join you in urging Miles to do it.
  15. South Carolina and Oregon

    Both of these teams are, to me, painful to watch succeed. Not because I mind them having success but because the refs let them get away with playing thugball while other teams have to play basketball. SC plays like they have a HC who used to be a bouncer at a bar. On one occasion Dozier threw a Duke player into the second ring of people parked out of bounds under the basket and no foul was called. Oregon, while not QUITE as thuggish as SC is in the same mold. When Brooks pushed a Kansas player defending him to the floor -- unlike Mr Brooks' famous flop -- it was called a foul but why it was not called a flagrant foul is beyond me. Both teams remind me of the "Bad Boys" Detroit Pistons. Very successful teams I hated to watch. I am not saying players can't be tough minded and physical but they ought to still have to play the game within the rules. I guess if you want to follow the model of these two teams, recruit tallish street thugs and hope the refs let them get away with on court violence.
