  1. One of the side effects of the big ten screwing their league and having all teams with 10-14 days off
  2. When you let good teams hang around, you will get beat. Nebraska wins by 5.
  3. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    He might be right with no source so seems extreme to delete your account when we will be partying on Xanax and NyQuil through the night 😀
  4. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Another serious question...if we are selected, would it be acceptable to set a car or couch on fire in celebration? I live in Colorado, so thinking this may not go over well, even with the stoned neighbors.
  5. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    That's assuming a Nebraska fan or two or a thousand haven't already gotten to him first!
  6. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Ok, serious question. If we are selected, does Lunardi's head explode and if so, does the tupee fly off?
  7. Where does Nebraska land?

    I just realized we lose an hour tonight and I have never been more grateful to spring forward and lose an hour. One less hour to agonize over our fate.
  8. Where does Nebraska land?

    Yes, Miles is hosting a private event for the team at his house.
  9. Karrington Davis is N

    Hell Yes...a hearty welcome to Mr. Davis and another recruiting win for Miles. I hope this news is a prelude to the icing on the cake tomorrow afternoon!
  10. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Yes, I believe this will put them firmly in if they hold on. You talk about a statement and sadly this is what us and every other bubble team that flamed out early in the conference tournaments is wishing they could have done. Games not over yet so I haven't given up hope.
  11. A Friendly Wager

    Ok, my gut tells me we're a 2 seed in the NIT. My head tells me we are likely out. My heart has us and me in Dayton, literally, as I've already researched flights. I woke up feeling lousy about our chances after hearing Lunardi eviscerate us on a few different media forums yesterday. Not that Lunardi is the end all, be all but his and Palm's and all other bracketologists tired and repetitive narrative does beat down even the most optimistic Nebraska fan, which typically I am. I rarely win bets as my online sportsbook account will attest to. I hardly ever bet on my own teams as it's impossible, for me at least, to peel away the emotion. With that being said, after Nebraska had reeled off 8 straight against the spread and something along the lines of 16 out of the last 17, I decided to put a wager on the Illinois game and took Nebraska as a very small favorite. We know how that turned out. So to turn the tide and to make myself feel marginally better, I donated $10 this morning. I figured that since I don't win bets that I might as well get out in front of my loss when Nebraska does make the tournament. Psychologically I now feel better. I definitely need some sort of long term medication but I do feel better.
  12. Next year

    Meh, I don't know. I'm not sure you can call it anything but speculation. Each kid beats to their own drum so to assume that just because JPJ had a great year or Copeland is older and assume their gone is just wild speculation. I'm sure a lot of people would love to go back and have the college experience again so I don't think it's any guarantee that JPJ or Copeland give this up as quickly as you presume. Plus, neither of these guys are bonafide picks for the NBA (Copeland certainly isn't), so what makes any of us so sure that these guys really want to go play overseas just to earn a paycheck. They are getting free room, board, basketball and the coed experience - this isn't easy for all to just give up. I have to imagine they both have the goal of getting to the NBA and there aren't a lot of examples I can think of where college kids don't get drafted, go play overseas and then come back to the NBA. And, living overseas isn't for everyone. I lean towards them coming back and trying to improve their draft stock. But, what I know more than anything, is I'm not going to give two shits about this again while the season is still going as this is still one hell of a ride to enjoy. I have no doubt I'll be thinking about this again at some point but not any further for me right now!!!
  13. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Arizona State lost again today. After crapping the bed down the stretch in the regular season and losing to CU yesterday, they got to watch CU get drilled by Arizona. Not a good look for them but it certainly makes me smile. The committee can hem and haw how they don't look at conference records but I don't think there is anyway they take an 8-10 team from a very mediocre Pac-12 conference that lost as many games as they did over the final several weeks.

    Is this the NBA??? I know they don't call traveling in the NBA but holy cow that Providence guy fumbled the ball for several steps.
  15. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    I know this is likely a little contrarian but I'm mildly rooting against St. Johns and Boston College today. The selection committee is in Day 2 of their meetings and I can't imagine a slot or two movement in any of these metrics is going to move the needle at this point. At this point, I would prefer to see all of these potential bid thieves leave their tournaments as quickly as possible, unless they are playing a very bubbly team. BC and St Johns are playing teams firmly in the field so I'm ok with them bowing out at this point and alleviating additional indigestion over the next few days.
