  1. HHCC Standings - End of Week 15

    Similarly, how am I so mediocre when I'm obviously so brilliant?
  2. Offensive Efficiency

    The Eff FG% leader is Roby at 61.9%, Copeland at 54.5, JPJ and Evan are at 50.7.
  3. HHCC Game #30 - vs. Indiana (Feb. 20, 8:00 PM CST)

    NU 88 IU 69 4 Back on track!
  4. This board has its share of stale jokes, head-scratching takes and incompetent trolls, but god love it, it has an uplifting tone of optimism. A (pick a number)-game winning streak is always just around the corner here. HOL is another world.
  5. HHCC Game #29 - at Illinois (Feb. 18, 2:30 PM CST)

    NU 74 Ill 52 I meant to type 62, but I'm gonna leave it this way since it looks better.
  6. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    There are really 4 kinds of bracketologists (not a joke): 1. The ones predicting who will get in. 2. The ones stating who's in based on where things stand now. 3. The ones providing click bait for media sites. 4. The ones who don't know what the #^%&$# they're doing. I think we're getting the most love from the prediction bracketologists and the least from the ones who say where things stand now. I don't care what 3 and 4 think.
  7. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    Lunardi headline today: Bracketology: Losses don't impact No. 1 Losses don't matter, so we don't have to win out after all!
  8. Road to 20

    Hey, everybody stay away from bracketology this morning and just enjoy the 20 wins. Stop and smell the roses, don't wake up and smell the coffee!
  9. HHCC Game #27 - vs. Rutgers (Feb. 10, 3:00 PM CST)

    NU 88 Rutgers 61 We on a roll.
  10. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    That KSU game just floored me after Texas looked so great against OU on Saturday. I said I was going to just enjoy our season and quit scoreboard watching. Just like I was going to fix that gutter before the first snowfall.
  11. I don't have a problem with the statistical analysis, their formulas make the most sense in objectively seeing what's going on. But they do miss some things, like what's going on in Lincoln.
  12. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    Call me Mr. Sunshine, but I just don't believe we're left out if we keep winning. I understand the tier system, but it's a tool and just winning counts for something. The thing we can't do is lose to a crap team.
  13. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    I think it is being looked at. The tier system is a big thing, but not the only thing. The point of the tiers is encourage better scheduling. Some big schools (Syracuse is a good example) put together a weak home-only noncon, then made the tournament by winning home games against tough conference opponents. Teams that don't play (and win) road or at least neutral-site in noncon are penalized. It's a good idea, and while it's biting us now, it won't matter if we keep winning. Hmmmm, I think I just answered something that had already been answered. Groundhog Day, I guess.
  14. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    One thing with the brackets is that some reflect the current state (if the season ended today) and some predict the eventual outcome, not really the same thing. Lunardi brags about accuracy, but it's based on his final bracket vs. the real thing. His accuracy during the season isn't impressive in the slightest. All the brackets tell us is that we have work to do, and everybody already knows that.
  15. Time to eat a little crow

    Also weird that Wisky, Iowa and Minnesota are all stuck in the mud right now with coaches who are staying. Really is a strange year. I'd equate Miles' situation with Pat Chambers'. How much progress does he need to show and how much do you want to keep the current players together next year? It's not an easy answer.
  16. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    He's never right!
  17. NU 88 MU 65 The train's rollin'!
  18. NU 61 Wis 55 2 Back to winning fugly!
  19. Game Day Essentials: Game #24 vs Iowa

    Excellent preview!
  20. HHCC Game #24 - vs. Iowa (Jan. 27, 7:00 PM CST)

    NU 65 U of I 55 My picks have gotten better since we started winning!
  21. Road to 20

    No kidding. This year is especially bad because of all the combinations with the weak schedule. We're winning games, and that's more fun that losing. That's as complicated as I'm gonna make it.
  22. How many future pros are on our roster?

    I really think Terran's reputation suffers here because of how it played out at the end. He led the conference in scoring and was a first-team selection. He was named on preseason all American teams heading into his junior year. I get why everybody loves JPJ right now, but he's a step below Terran at the same point in their careers.
  23. Teams without NCAA Tourney Wins

    Don't know who you talk to, but every Jay fan I know bitches that they don't make the SS. It's their white whale, like our NCAA schneid.
  24. HHCC Game #23 - at Rutgers (Jan. 24, 6:00 PM CST)

    NU 54 RU 49 Winning ugly!
