  1. Brady Heiman is 'N'

    Welcome Brady. We can always use size...hopefully we can bulk him up in the next couple years and turn him into a regular contributor.
  2. The Isaac Copeland watch

    Read it again. I said if this year turns out like the previous three. I'm not anticipating anything. I have no idea what to expect with this team. If Copeland is out for the non con, having 10 eligible scholarship players with two being true freshman is not ideal but not something that has to cripple the team if we can get solid minutes out of someone like Akenten.
  3. The Isaac Copeland watch

    If true, I hope the administration/staff does not use Copeland not being eligible as an excuse if this year turns out like the last three. Not their fault he wouldn't be eligible...but they certainly had a say in utilizing our open scholarships.
  4. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    He only has about 7 inches on Jordy.
  5. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    Sorry, can't link but per Jon Rothstein....Nebraska's mirror big ten opponents for 17-18 will be Illinois, Minnesota, Penn St, Rutgers, and Wiscy. Very favorable IMO...should come away with at minimum 5 wins against that group.
  6. This is true...coming in the expectations were pretty lofty for him. Still are. The good news is he displayed his talent multiple games but had a clear confidence issue which is not abnormal for a freshman. I expect the game will slow down for him this year and he won't be thinking as much on the court. I expect a big leap out of him.
  7. Who Starts?

    He's not the first 4 star freshman.
  8. Offseason Potpourri

    Matt Norlander's(from CBS Sports) has us dead last in the Big 10 power rankings. I guess it could happen being that the Big 10 is probably going to be pretty tough this year....but, it seems we have enough talent to do better. Much better hopefully. http://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/early-big-ten-power-rankings-led-by-miles-bridges-michigan-state-is-back-on-top/
  9. Who Starts?

    I really like Allen but like most freshman it's going to take time for him to adjust. Also, judging off the past...his PT will probably rely on how he's doing on the defensive end. We have all heard about how great of a shooter he is...but, will he buy into the defense this year? I hope so...but if not, it's unlikely he's getting the nod over someone like Taylor who Miles trust.
  10. Who Starts?

    This length alone will hopefully solve our three point defensive woes. The ruling on Copeland is going to be critical. I'm thinking the coaches have to like the chances of getting Copeland the full year. If not, I'm guessing they would have utilized atleast one of the two remaining scholarships we have open.
  11. Breakout player

    Voted Copeland for both.....would have voted Allen for #2 but going off recent history I'm hesitant to say he will be here long enough to make a huge impact. If healthy and eligible right away, Copeland should have a very solid year IMO.
  12. Offseason Potpourri

    http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?ATCLID=211307690 Not an OWH fluff piece from last year(I'm sure if can be found), but below are some quotes on last years team chemistry and how great it was before the losses piled on. “It’s the tightest it’s ever been while I’ve been here,” said Webster, the only senior on coach Tim Miles’ fifth Husker team. “It’s a whole different feel. We’re great friends off the court, and obviously we’re forced to be friends on the court.” “I’ve been on teams like that, and I’ve been on teams the complete opposite,” Webster said. “This is definitely one of the more-together teams I’ve ever been on, and it’s a lot of fun. I’m enjoying it. I’m so grateful it happened my senior year.” “I just feel like we have a lot more of the buy-in factor this year,” Webster said. “We’ve had a couple of years where we haven’t really reached our goals and stuff, and I think everyone’s realized we can’t do it individually, and we need the team to come together to achieve all of our goals. Individual goals come from us coming together and achieving our team goals.” Sophomore forward Michael Jacobson has been vocal about Nebraska’s improved team chemistry from a year ago. He describes a close, more tight-knit locker room in which players have a vested interest in knowing one another, and caring. “It’s just one of those things where you know this guy has my back, and I know he cares about me, he cares about the team, I have trust in him,” Jacobson said. “I think that’s one of the biggest things with good teams, is they trust each other, they trust the process and they trust the coaching staff to put them in the right positions.” Sophomore wing Jack McVeigh simply said the Huskers have “a lot of dudes who just enjoy each other’s company. “We’re just great mates. We hang out a lot, and more than that, we’re just great in the locker room together,” he said. “It’s nice having the one leader we know who’s a leader in Tai, like someone we look at when a question gets asked sometimes. It’s been really good for him, as well. It’s really helped him grow up and helped him on the court and off the court.” Staff members who are around the team on a daily basis laud Nebraska’s chemistry, some noting it’s the best locker room in Miles’ tenure. One member said you could lock these players in a completely empty room, and they’d find a way to have fun and keep each other entertained.
  13. 2017 Nebraska Baseball

    Today's OWH article on Rob Childress made me want to puke. AD Byrne chose Anderson over Childress because of his longevity at Nebraska? Sigh, what could have been.
  14. 2017 Nebraska Baseball

    Really, it may just come down to what the team offers them in terms on $$$. They can come back next year and improve their draft stock but it won't mean much because they lose all leverage. It definitely helps us that they did not end up in the first 10 rounds.
  15. 2017 Nebraska Baseball

    Lost Swanda but no other Husker players/recruits were drafted in the first ten rounds. Alvarado and Schreiber will have a tough decision to make.
  16. Statistical predictions

    I guess you can't rule anything out with Nebrasketball but if I remember right...didn't AWIII move back home over the summer and was essentially non existent? Glynn was probably the biggest worry left and it appears he is going thru summer workouts/practicing with the team. I'd say that's a good sign.
  17. Coach Mac to Ohio State?

    To me Butler is similar to Wisconsin football in that it appears they can just plug in a coach and the culture is already established to be successful. Not sure if that means they hire from within but I'm sure coach Lewis is kicking himself as he probably would have had a pretty good shot at landing the shot had he stayed at Butler. Maybe he still does have a good shot?
  18. Coach Mac to Ohio State?

    Damn. So that means we are already down 20 points for this years game against Creighton.
  19. Offseason Potpourri

    Jim Tressel?
  20. NCAA Tournament Thread

    We better hope we have some instant impact players coming in because that lineup is very mediocre on paper. Add in the fact that Schreiber is probably gone. I expect to lose Hoensee and Alvarado as well. Erstad can talk about grinding out at bats and out competing tell he's blue in the face but until he starts filling up the roster with talent this is who we are.
  21. NCAA Tournament Thread

    Six years in under Erstad and we have one regional win that came against Binghamton.
  22. NCAA Tournament Thread

    Under Erstad we have scored 2 runs in three regional openers. 27 innings....2 runs.
  23. Offseason Potpourri

    If this happened, do you think more kids would opt to go oversees instead of playing three years in college?
  24. A comparison of teams

    I think Jack can still play a crucial role to our success the next two years. He was a black hole for the better part of the non conference last year but he also has the skill to get hot from deep. And, we need guys who are willing and able to make the three ball because that's been an issue in Lincoln for as long as I can remember.
  25. Offseason Potpourri

    We all know Roby has the goods....can't remember how many times he was open last year and I yelled "shoot it" at the TV screen. Another year in the gym and hitting the weights should hopefully help with his confidence. If he finishes his career at NU it will be fun to watch when it all clicks.
