  1. Justin Jackson, bates-diop, Carr all landed in pretty good spots but likely left some money on the table by not coming back for another year. nice to see our guys got good information and will hopefully make the most outta it because palmer n cope woulda went undrafted for sure it looks like. It will be so crazy if next year at this time time we are talking about 3 huskers being drafted or even making nba teams, would be great for recruiting

    18-19 depth

    With the news in the last week our depth looks to be fantastic going into this season. IMO w the likes of Watson Allen palmer Copeland and roby starting. Then jordy coming off the bench w 2 years of previous experience we have a very solid 6 deep. The key will be to get two of nana,Thor,Davis,Harris,maybe Costello? To give solid minutes so we can go 8 deep. I’d like to see Thor or nana push for starting 2 gaurd minutes as I’m not crazy about Watson n Allen playing defense together. Also will be interesting to see where they go with that last scholarship as it makes no sense to keep it for next year to me. Cheers though guys, good news like this previous month doesn’t happen to us very often

    I’d rather see heiman get 5 minutes every 3rd game then see those minutes go to jack n I’m of the impressive heiman isn’t close to being ready to play...

    Roby (is Good)

    W the talent and the perceived coaching chops of Gates when it comes to shooting I would be shocked if we don’t have 5 or 6 guys shooting over 35 percent from 3 point land. W roby,Copeland,Allen all approaching 38+ percent. I am hopeful we can keep up the team free throw percentage from last year as well, having all the regulars aside from jordy shooting in the 70s last year was such a luxury

    2018-19 Husker opponents

    His twitter timeline is a 50-50 hit rate. He said Gates was coming 5 days before it was announced. He also said erstad was getting fired. I’m closer to Sioux Falls than Lincoln so I hope he’s accurate

    Thor has Some pretty crafty moves in his arsenal from what I’ve seen, for those who watch practices or warm ups is he atleast an average 3 point shooter?

    The goal bar should be firmly placed between winning 25+ games, winning the big ten, and being a top 5 NCAA tourney seat. We have talent. We have vets. And we have a new assistant w a knack for improving shooting. Things are on the up n up.

    Costello Redshirt

    Hopefully miles gives him some run in the non conference so we can see what he brings to the table

    IMO playing Copeland roby and jordy all at the same time would lead to a huge amount of gray hair from games where all our bigs are in foul trouble

    Copeland is back

    If nana can understand the defense he’s gonna play. He’s 6’6” ish and can shoot it

    Palmer Back

    Gonna be the best roster Nebraska fans have seen in 20 year now. Watson will have played major minutes since he arrived jordy has been a rotation player since he arrived roby is a potential lottery pick palmer is all big ten and Allen,Thor,nana have all been in the program for a year with high level potential. might even get Copeland back if we are real lucky

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Better question do we think he gets drafted next year if he comes back? I do think his game will improve quite a bit

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Those are both fairly accurate comments. He played for Georgetown for 2 years which was a slow team at the time and while we ran some our offense was usually stuck in the mud.

    Morrow leaving

    I’ve said many times Copeland is a bad rebounder and it’s more to do w him not willing to do the little things like mixing it up in the post and boxing out. What he brings to the offense far out Ways what he lacks In rebounding however. If he comes back and miles doesn’t have some set plays in the offense for him around the elbow I might lose the rest of my hair this season.

    Amir Harris is N

    If we can find another big guy for the future then this is the kinda roster that puts you in the upper half of the big ten for the next 3-4 years. Long,athletic,a couple shooters, a few slashers, just need another future post or stretch 4

    Amir Harris is N

    You seem pretty low on Davis? Is that a gut feeling or inside info about his injury recovery? And do tell about these nana rumors
  17. B-town hoopsfan

    Amir Harris is N

    Can’t shoot is a myth, inless his form is completely broken which it could very well be but I haven’t seen or heard it he probably just needs a few tweaks( come on gates ) or more shots in a gym. I think if they find out cope is coming back which they should within two weeks that the last open scholarship should be used for a transfer big that has to sit out this coming year. Your not going to get anyone of the quality we all want to come in if jordy roby cope all come back. There’s only 80 possible minutes to play between the 4 n 5. You would like to see roby get like 30. Cope get like 30. N jordy get like 20.

    Amir Harris is N

    Agreed. Not for sure if rivals or 24/7 is more creditable but their is quite the difference in rankings on Amir. There was an article on rivals a few weeks ago that had Amir on the cusp of their 150 list I believe for what that’s worth. I believe the perception is Xavier is better based on highlight tapes which can be alil deceiving but he did play in a higher level of high school ball I think. I tend to look at who else offered them scholarships in which Xavier has alil higher quality offers IMO. Myself I like Amir alil more based off of the things you can’t teach like height and length since their games seem very similar

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    We just aren’t used to actual good things happening. Did anyone catch robin washut on Omaha 590? This evening? I was driving home and caught some of it, he basically said he has always expected palmer would be back and he now expects Copeland to be back too(inless he gets a good euro offer). What a turn of events this could all be. Potentially return all of our “skill” players. I don’t think we have a replacement for Taylor’s tenacity but we definitely have other 2”s that can bring different skills to the table.

    Those Florida fans sure do think white walks on water don’t they

    We got some Jimmy’s and even a few joes, it’s those Xs and Os we need to get ironed out

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    Looked like all the northwestern guys stayed after he left for Florida(northwestern has a darn good class to) not sure if he was the lead recruiter on any of them.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    So they let him go because White decided he gave gates to much power as an assistant head coach? Is that how everyone else interprets the article? certainly seems like their blunder will be our gain.

    So you guys think we are in the clear barring palmer or Copeland going pro?
