  1. Offseason Potpourri

    It would be interesting to poll fans of the other teams at the bottom and see what they think. I'd guess Rutgers fans would mostly think, "Yeah, last. That's about right." Illinois and Ohio State are probably more hopeful since they've been good in the past and have new coaches. Penn State fans would probably be happy to be ranked 10th, based on their history.

    SI projects Copeland as the No. 29 scorer among transfers at 11.1 ppg, Palmer No. 54 at 8.0. Neither of the freshmen make the top 50, which takes at least 7.5 ppg. I found this pretty interesting in regards to player projections for the year ahead: https://www.si.com/college-basketball/2016/10/12/team-rankings-projections-predictions-system

    We still have to hire an AD, and he'll have the call on the coach, so maybe it's just talk. But it seems like Bounds' standards are very high for athletics, and he's stating them as more than just lofty goals. Struck me as more than just the usual, "We'd like to compete at the highest levels .... "

    I'd interpret this as "Miles better make the NCAA this year." Anybody looking for "progress" or the NIT this year is setting the bar too low. http://www.omaha.com/huskers/football/shatel-football-president-hank-bounds-understands-importance-of-a-d/article_342d937e-aecc-11e7-8845-63d69a1aad7e.html On performance, Bounds said his goal is for every Husker sport, not just football, to chase national titles. “At the press conference (where Eichorst’s dismissal was announced), everybody focused on football. But basketball, every year we should be talking about the Big Ten championship and making deep runs in the (NCAA) tournament. Baseball, we should be seeing a red N across the street.” By that, he meant TD Ameritrade Park, just down the street from The World-Herald and home to the College World Series.
  5. Nebraska v Georgetown

    Roby's defensive potential: who was he guarding? Thanks for the update, we're starving for news.

    Some people need to get a frickin life beyond a message board.

    You don't have anything, so not sure why you're going there. Our Adidas connection also might make you go hmmmmmmm.

  11. Y'know, Glynn Watson kinda reminds me of ...

    Might have been a case of Danny outthinking himself. That loss was considered a big upset because of the seedings, but Xavier had a couple of good guards. We had the advantage in size, but turned the ball over some and didn't hit our free throws. Although maybe I'm thinking of the Penn game.

    Careful, we're not looking for logic here.
  13. Serious question ...

    I can't wait either. Very excited by the roster potential, very concerned that so few of these guys have played together.
  14. Serious question ...

    It seems like Glynn is the only one who fits that description. I like Copeland a lot, but I doubt he can take over a game and make sure we don't have scoring droughts. I don't know that you could expect that out of anybody else on the roster.

    Sooooo, I guess I misread this. I thought the sarcasm was dripping from this post, but others seem to take it seriously. Or are they being sarcastic too? I am not being sarcastic, or ironic, or sardonic, just clueless.
