  1. 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!
  2. Looking forward

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

    This! The game was nearly unwatchable.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Hoppen headed to UNL Hall of Fame

    Congrats! A slam dunk choice!
  7. Border State Hoops

    It is astonishing to see just how poorly Missouri has done in the time frame you have chosen. They were a regular threat to Kansas' dominance in the Big 8 and did well in the Dance. That and the perennial mystery of why Colorado can't field really good teams. It does go to show that just have lots of quality players in your geographic area doesn't mean you will succeed as a program.
  8. O.T. The passing of an icon

    Any idea who the white haired gentlemen on piano is behind him? That guy could play, too!
  9. 0-7 or 1-0?

    Well, the team I AM a fan of is 0-7 so I guess I'll choose that one. There are reasons to be a fan that go beyond win-loss records. Of course, winning 1 would be great!
  10. Jeriah Horne will transfer

    Jeriah we barely knew ya! Wish you would reconsider so we could have more time together. You are a player with a great upside and could have helped take us somewhere special IMO. That said, I respect your decision and wish you well.
  11. Nick Fuller is Graduate Transferring

    He was part of the family in my mind and a quality young man whom I am sorry to see go. Keep in touch, Nick. Thanks for all you have meant to us and I wish you well.
  12. Miles will be here for 2017-18

    I believe it was Dimes who observed -- please correct me if I am misrepresenting you, Dimes -- that if Miles is NOT given an extension AND the Huskers make the NCAA tourney, that success may lead to a lot of interest in Miles' from other schools. That makes quite a bit of sense. IF he takes us from where we are now to an NCAA bid, he is likely the B1G coach of the year again and a LOT of programs will come knocking. Whether SE gives Miles an extension may tell us a lot about whether SE really BELIEVES in Miles or not. If he thinks Miles will get it done next year, he should give him the extension to establish a pricey buyout that makes it less painful financially for Miles to leave. If he does not, then no extension will make a firing after next season less expensive. This could be interesting to watch.
  13. Miles will be here for 2017-18

    While I can't say this wrong - because I have NO idea if it is right or not -- LB's sources when it comes to Nebrasketball have often been incorrect. In fact, I believe is nose is still bent out of joint because no one let him in on Tim Miles' hiring when that happened and the LJS scooped the OWH on the story. Just saying LB is as likely to be pushing an agenda here as he is reporting a story.
  14. Miles will be here for 2017-18

    I can live with this. Let's see how the roster changes/fills out. It will be an all or nothing season next year, though, IMO.
  15. Jacobsen

    My all too often faulty memory banks seem to recall Jacobsen diving out of bounds trying to save a ball. Shortly after that, he got the bandage and not long after THAT he left the game. He might have played some minutes later on but not many.
