  1. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    I hope you're right. 7-5 sounds like best case right now. We will likely get destroyed this Saturday and the remaining games are essentially a toss up.
  2. Developing story: NCAA fraud and corruption probe

    How much did Adidas pay for Thor?
  3. By the way ...

    I hope he's right. A lot of new pieces that will need to gel but pieces that could turn out to be good. We need guys like Jordy and Roby to talk that sophomore jump. More than anything, we need to start protecting the Vault again.
  4. Eichorst Out

    Huh? I guess that's a sure way of not hiring a big time AD..."Hey Mr AD, please come lead our athletic department...but, you can't hire the football coach. That will be Tom Osborne's duty." Sorry, I don't see that happening.
  5. Eichorst Out

    I honestly don't remember that far back. Grobe was Obsorne's number #1 choice wasn't he? Atleast, that was the rumor and Grobe more or less confirmed that. If we did hire a search firm I'm not sure if he was their recommendation.
  6. Eichorst Out

    We are hiring a search firm for the AD search...if Alberts was a foregone conclusion I doubt they would be doing that.
  7. Eichorst Out

    Oh I agree, but with the early signing period...could it have waited? Or, would we have cut the recruits loose regardless? I'm not sure. I don't think this puts a final nail in Riley's coffin but it obviously turns up the heat as high as it can go.
  8. Eichorst Out

    His job status was always tied with Riley. After the start of this year, he was a sitting duck. Not sure I agree with firing him right now unless we have a replacement lined up. Really worried the recruiting will now tank.
  9. Eichorst Out

    Is this good or bad for Tim Miles? I guess I can see it both ways.
  10. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    That was about as bad of a performance out of the line that I can remember at Nebraska. I would have said Riley needs 5 years to get his own players in here but unfortunately I think its becoming painfully obvious it's not going to matter one way or the other. Cut bait with Riley this year or next(2018 will be a blood bath with that schedule) and get Frost in here and hope he's the savior.
  11. Copeland

    Huge news on Copeland. We have all the pieces in place to make a run IMO. Hopefully Thomas can be that three pt threat even as a freshmean....Roby make the big jump from Freshman to Soph year.
  12. Thorir Thorbjarnarson is N!

    I follow him on twitter...he's a good follow as most of his post are sports related. He is a bit of a Husker basketball homer....not saying that there is anything wrong with that. Considering he retweets and tweets @HuskerHoopsCentral quite a bit I would guess he is an active member of this board. https://twitter.com/threecolorbeard
  13. Thorir Thorbjarnarson is N!

    I would not put much stock into the article. The author likely knows about as much as we do in regards to Thor. The author probably posts on this board considering he is a Husker basketball fan....and one that is not usually shy in drinking the Kool-Aid.
  14. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    I think that's directly related to the hype Tanner Lee is getting. After seeing him in the spring game and the chatter coming out of fall camp I have really high expectations for him. With that said, who knows until the bullets start flying.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    He only has about 7 inches on Jordy.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Who Starts?

    He's not the first 4 star freshman.
  22. 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/
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
