  1. I know it is different talent levels...but when you play pickup ball it is obvious which guys can hit the last bucket and which guys can't. when the score is 6-4, everybody shoots and there isn't much pressure, but when it is game point...so many guys tighten up and can't make the final shot...while other guys, even if they aren't the best shooters in the gym invevitably score the final bucket in game after game. I think at every level of basketball, you see this....the first 35 minutes of a game should be judged totally different than the last 5....because some players disappear in the last 5 minutes.
  2. When i have talked to some friends about Nebrasketball (friends that follow it, but not very passionately) and they ask me why hasn't Miles been able to replicate his tourney team in his second season, what I have told them is that he really has. When I watch his teams today and his team in the tourney year, they aren't that much different....the only difference is they rode a wave and a player (petteway) into the tourney....and the shots Petteway made in some of those wins, if you ask me were horrible shots, but they went in...and wins resulted. I really don't think that team was that much better than what we saw this year...it just found ways to win.
  3. I don't watch a lot of these videos...but man that is some very poor defense being played against his team....worse than pickup games at the YMCA.
  4. I agree, in my opinion, Jacobsen might have been the bigger loss...for a couple of reasons, yes he was a role player that did the dirty work, he boxed out...which often led to rebounds for others.....and he seemed to be a leader on the team (now this is seen from afar and could be me misreading the situation). Morrow was a beast and has much more talent than Jacobsen, but I think filling Morrow's role will be easier to replace than Jacobsen's role.
  5. My opinion on Jacobsen and Morrow...is that they will be darn good for the teams where they transfer...If Nebraska was to get two transfers of that quality with 2 years to play, we would be damn near Giddy.
  6. How can you ruin a program that has never won an NCAA tourney game and has only been to the tournament one time in this century....
  7. The officiating was bad...but part of the problem of why it is bad...is that they allow so many things that force them into bad calls. Call travelling when a guy mis-executes the jump stop, then you don't have to call the silly touch blocking foul after the travel. Guys were planted in the lane for 5, 6 or 7 seconds...and then they get rewarded with a foul on their terrible shot attempt. There are reasons why you have to dribble and why you can't camp in the lane...and when you ignore those parts of basketball, you see bad calls that never should have happened.... Calling travels will force kids to learn how to do a proper jump stop...they will learn to quit shuffling their feet.... Call 3 seconds and guys will get out of the lane.... Palming the basketball...make guys actually dribble it...and you will see less chippy fouls because the offense has such an advantage when they can palm the basketball and then travel at the end of their drive...how is a guy supposed to defend? Freedom of movement....blah...they could clean up the game by callilng some of the most basic rules that have been around forever.
  8. The thing about Miles or any coach taking another job (if he were to take it)....it resets the clock for him...now he gets another 4 years of being a head coach.... If he stays at Nebraska...he is only guaranteed next year (he might get paid, but that doesn't mean he will be coaching. Resetting the clock allows coach time to continue as a head coach as long as possible.
  9. Drake university says Hi.
  10. At Nebraska, you have to close your eyes to the win loss record...until year 8....in my opinion.... two full recruiting cycles to build a program...
  11. Wasn't Sydd Finch that great New York meets prospect that just never could get his head straight enough to pitch in the Majors?
  12. To me a stretch 4 is a guy that couldn't hang down low...so he had to develop an outside shot to earn playing time because he couldn't earn it the traditional way....Nothing wrong with it..as guys that want to play...have to figure out a skill that results in the coach putting them in the game.
  13. I am sure there could be logistic issues, but the NIT seems to get their games in with short notice. You might need some flexibility in dates monday/tues and wed/thurs...but it could be done, even if the higher seeded team had to play on the road if they had no place to host.
  14. Probably...You could probably have the first two days of the Big ten tournament at home locations....Monday/Wed and then start the final 8 at the location on Friday.
  15. I actually think the CBI and NIT are better tournaments than the NCAA.... The NCAA has better teams, but I would much rather watch a game in person or even on TV in an arena that one of the teams is the home team....I actually would like to see the first 2 rounds be held on home courts of the higher seeded teams. The NCAA tourney has so many games in near empty arenas....some games just lack the energy that you see in a TCU at Iowa game in the NIT round 2 as an example.
