  1. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Yeah for sure. There's still time for it to come to fruition. I'm not going to write him off just yet.
  2. Nebraska is like Missouri. Flat and Farms.

    Agree... I don't know why people are so offended by this. I don't know if the Cuse kid meant it as an insult... he may have simply stated what he thought about when he heard they were going to Nebraska. And for those that took it as an insult... if you're insecure about living in a state with a low population, why don't you leave?
  3. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Not claiming what he says is true. Just passing on what I saw. I guess we'll find out soon.
  4. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    From Brett Edwards, who's apparently a sportscaster in Lincoln? "I've been hearing not so great things about the Nebraska MBB team. Look for some things to shake out here soon. That's all I can say for now" Apparently it wasn't all he could say for now, as he followed it with this tweet: "It's mostly regarding possible roster attrition"
  5. What to do with Miles contract?

    Yes. You know "a dream come true" can be used to describe something that's far-fetched, right?
  6. What to do with Miles contract?

    Actually, I'm not assuming that at all. But I am saying that it's worth the try.
  7. What to do with Miles contract?

    This would be an absolute dream come true.
  8. What to do with Miles contract?

    Sounds like a win-win. No buyout and we get a new coach.
  9. Nebraska (22-10) vs. Mississippi State (22-11) Game Thread

    This exactly. We’ll see if they can take the next step next year. But I have serious doubts because of our lack of size. How many times did a big man have a career game against us over the last couple months? That kid tonight probably dunked on us five times. Unless we start scoring like Villanova, it’s going to continue to be hard to overcome that.
  10. Nebraska (22-10) vs. Mississippi State (22-11) Game Thread

    We’ve had three crappy coaches in a row. That doesn’t mean we’ll never get a good one.
  11. Nebraska (22-10) vs. Mississippi State (22-11) Game Thread

    By that I meant a typical NIT team. Clearly better than an average team. But yes, I definitely think this is not the March Madness worthy team that you think it is.
  12. Nebraska (22-10) vs. Mississippi State (22-11) Game Thread

    I think tonight provided a clear argument that we’d be no better than 19-15 if we played the same schedules as the teams to which you refer. Metrics are there for a reason. They aren’t perfect, but they help paint a clearer picture than simply comparing 22 wins vs 19. We beat up on mediocre teams and had three or four nice wins at home. Sad fact is that we aren’t used to seeing good basketball in Lincoln. When we finally got a team that was competent, we held them with high regard in our minds. Looking back, this is an average NIT squad, and I’m afraid it’s the apex for Timmy here. Unfortunately, he bought himself another year. No tournament next year and he better not be back in 2020.
  13. This is the Beginning...

    Yeah, I'm just basing it on the general vibe of the board. I've definitely seen people say we'll be a consistently ranked team next year, too. I've felt that way at times as well, so maybe my post was more directed towards my past opinions than anyone else's specifically haha. I agree that the continuity and being able to start a season already knowing our identity should be helpful in getting off to a fast start. For now, I'm kind of expecting something like an 8 seed type of season, but if the balls bounce our way I could see something better than that, and if they don't, I could see another NIT bid. We'll see what happens with Palmer, Copeland, and Jordy. And we'll see how effective players like Allen, Nana, Thorir, and Xavier Johnson can be in replacing the lost production of Taylor and Gill.
  14. This is the Beginning...

    This opinion won’t be liked in here, but here goes... IMO, the most optimistic fans in here are exaggerating the improvement we made throughout the season. While yes, we did improve some, as most teams do, I think the schedule is the main explanation. A few points to back my case: 1. Early in the season, we beat a tough Minnesota team at home. 2. That same week, we nearly beat Kansas at home. 3. That same week, we outplayed and nearly beat Creighton in Omaha. 4. Around that same time, we beat a decent Boston College team at home by double digits. 5. During our stretch of “playing better basketball”, we had wins at Northwestern and Wisconsin and at home against Maryland, Penn State, and Michigan. We also needed a miracle to win at home against Illinois. To me, the results from points 1-4 point to a similar team as the one from point 5. I think the reasons people use to justify our “vast improvement” are these: 1. We played terribly against St. John’s 2. We lost to UCF 3. We went 13-5 in conference I agree that if we played at St. John’s today, we’d probably fare better than we did in November. But we still might easily lose that game. We may easily lose at UCF today as well when you consider Tacko Fall’s presence. And our conference record was helped by the light schedule we drew. What’s my point in all of this? That the people expecting us to be a consistently ranked team next year and a shoe-in for the dance are getting ahead of themselves, IMO. Because if we replayed our entire schedule starting today, I’m not so sure it’d have gone much differently. I like that we (should) return the core of our production. I do like our chances of making the tournament, but would not be surprised if we didn’t. And in that case, Tim would have to go. This program’s ceiling is not the NIT.

    How would playing Kansas State be any better for our resume than Creighton?
