    OT: The Shim Shams

    Their athletism surprises...kind of Chris Farley-ish.

    Xavier Johnson isn't N

    If everything else is solid ( and NOTHING is ) and Kenya leaves, I doubt he wants out. But, NOTHING is and he’s hitting the panic button big time. I can’t really blame him. I wish he’d man up and accept challenge however. After all, there are no guarantees anywhere and transferring is always possible ( “everybody’s doing it”). Again though, he’s thinking “what the heck is going on there?” Hopefully the dust settles and he re-commits.

    Idea for NCAA Tournament

    Agree agree agree! For several reasons....(1) it would make it even more exciting. (2) It would give darn good teams who are unknowns a chance ( and by the way, they would win all over the place). The focus should not be in getting a ton more major conf teams in, some certainty. (3) It gets rid of the stupid insignificant tournaments and therefore makes it a big deal for ALL of the NCAA teams. There is getting to be less and less of a difference between the teams in the 30-120 ith best teams in the country all the time. Might as well acknowledge that, embrace it and use it. Again I think it would be really cool and a huge success. I really think the excitement would off the charts if done right.

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    It’s certainly fun to be Husker hoops fan huh? It’s very tempting to believe that fate working out in a multude of weird and curious circumstances or bad luck or a curse...have got this program in a stranglehold that keeps up from getting over the hump. For us to have roster turnover after this year ( oh I know it’s now normal)...just take us (the fans) out to the wood shed and expose our bellies so we can voluntarily take on the next punch to the gut. It’s tempting to give up (very), but of course we won’t.
  6. Yep, it was all “under the sun”

    Conference Tournaments

    Too much common sense there. There is always lots wrong. Thanks for posting that.

    Larry Mollenbrink (sp?) did Husker hoops on KFOR early in Danny’s tenure.

    College hoops corruption case

    I don’t know jack squat, but I believe that dear old NU really tries to run a clean program and do things right. I’m sure “things” still go on as you can’t stop everything. All that to say, I sure hope we come out clean in this big deal we’re discussing in this thread.

    No Sit Sunday x Duce

    Jack Mitchell ( klin ) said this morning that the original No Sit Sunday genesised when Chris Harriman was on his morning show one day leading up to the game and mentioned something. It wasn’t clear if it was a specific idea or he said something almost in passing. According to Jack this morning, the idea got legs from there and turned into what it was. Anyone remember it that way ?
  12. Interesting, (I don’t know anything about the pre-Jack Moore dudes), but the one who caught my eye was Tony Farmer. Played on a stacked, best record of all time team and was a power forward...and he’s on this list. He was a smart, crafty dude. Really wish he could have played his Sr year (no da). OK back to the current team subjects....

    Favorite Nebrasketball Moments

    Moody’s running 3 at the end of regulation tied it at 100 iirc. Several players fouled out from both teams. Beat KU on day 2 and lost to Doug Smith and Mizzou in championship game. How about beating ( top 5 ?) Michigan State (same year 90-91) early in the season on Beau Reid’s last second shot at home. Danny’s progress was validated and it was a crazy fun year. That year for me was probably the best. I had been a rabid Husker hoops fan since the early 80’s. It was just this feeling of “we’ve arrived”.
  14. I remember Moe ( Iba - not one of the stooges ), on a call in show ( later in Hoppen’s career ) talking about how Dave had become such a solid player. He said that when Dave was a FR that Terry Smith beat the crap out of him everyday in practice. Point being, that this made him tougher and better. And yes, this lead to some of those scoring battles with Wayman Tisdale. Wayman got his but so did Dave. If someone points out that Terry and Leonard Johnson were both gone by the time big Dave stepped on campus, I’m going to feel REALLY silly and nobody will ever believe a word I say again....but I’m pretty sure I remember that correct
  15. Unless something has changed, a player who transfers mid year will lose a season of play. He will end up playing 2 full and 2 half seasons. So unless things are really bad, it seems incredibly short sighted.
