  1. No Sit Sunday x Duce

    Nice !! Thanks
  2. 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.
  3. 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 ?
  4. 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....
  5. 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”.
  6. 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 🤓
  7. 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.
  8. The Official Media Thread

    I’ve got that Moses Malone poster !
  9. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    That is awesome and incredible and I’m jealous !!!!
  10. It seemed like Roby got tentative on the defensive end as far as going after blocks maybe the last 5-10 minutes.
  11. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    I’m with you. When it comes to sports, I don’t believe it’s about correct steps always equal “success”, absolutes or determinism. It could have worked, it hasn’t. Things seemed to be falling into place for this thing to go upward (going into this year). Have the players bought in, is there unity, are there leaders and if so, are there good followers. You have to believe you can win every time you step on the field. You have to believe in the coaches and the coaches have to motivate. Look at scores week to week across the country, it’s crazy. Of course NU can be solid program again, just don’t expect the crazy top flight consistency that we were used to ALL those years. We gotta be realistic, we will likely not have that. The current landscape doesn’t lend itself to that. Work for it, believe it can happen sure (and sometimes it will). I hope we get a great guy in here and get competitive again no doubt. I hope we have stability for a while, but there will be some ups and downs and lopsided scores once in a while. I hope we have some context. Call me a pessimist, say I’m lowering standards. Look around college football. Context, I’m being realistic. Shaky AD’s and shaky coaches, let’s make a great hire and have some solid success again ! But let’s also be solid supporters, realistic and patient. I have no doubt that with the right hire and some decent fortune, we could have a pretty solid team next year. But who knows there may be some tough growing pains next year too. One thing is clear, in this day and age, it’s time to move on.
  12. Husker Signing Day

    I just glanced at his numbers Jr and Sr year of college. Jr year 18.8 and 14.4 and his Sr year 27.4 and 15 bds !!!! Are you kidding me-those are crazy combined numbers. Sr year became the first player to lead country in both scoring and rebounding in same year. I also just found out that he started shaving his head and eyebrows in college in order to look more intimidating (according to wiki).
  13. Husker Signing Day

    He was still in college in the early 80’s—fwiw.
  14. Open Scrimmage

    I liked the impromptu dog pile/scrum/fumble recovery drill !
  15. I can't believe you people...
