    Saw that Brady will be playing in the Omaha metro league with a group of guys his age... Probably his former AAU team

    Huskers in the Pros Thread

    Not really. There are a ton of levels on the European pyramid of basketball. While the top level of Italian basketball is pretty high up there his good showing means that even if he doesn't land with a nba or eurocup squad he will be plenty in demand for any high end country specific league. Eurocup is made up of the top teams of the various European leagues.
  3. This way we can just add all of this news into one thread instead of having to track down old threads or start new ones. TP signed with Nanterre 92, a team in the top basketball league in France

    NBA Playoffs

    This makes for a good example about loyalty in professional sports as the owners of the franchise didn't stay loyal to Seattle
  6. The two problems you would hit is that I think this will be the Friday before Christmas and the tickets need to be secured because this will easily sell out. If someone is a bus owner, either short or long, hit me up.

    I believe most everything was out at Harry's place but I could be wrong. I think they find host farms in different parts of the state so it's not only just in the east, or just in the north, or whatever. The event was held on an acreage outside of Hebron. If the host couple had owned land a couple of miles north the event town would have been Bruning.

    The Cattleman's Ball isn't hosted in a town...it's on a farm place.

    This is the purpose of tempo free stats Fran typically has the offense and the team goes as the defense goes with last year being his worst at Iowa. Teams got easy looks and Iowa didn't force a ton of turnovers. It was way to easy for people to score.

    Way too early Top 25

    Never too early to start looking into Sweet 16 venues

    That's because @basketballjones hasn't actually listened to it yet The quote was a part of a response to Gaskin's question on whether he was coaching for his job. He stated that he wanted to be the long term coach at Nebraska and the comment about other opportunities seemed like proof that he was in this for the long run. If he's putting his money where his mouth is in this regard we won't need to worry about that buyout if he does put it together this year.
  14. Ah...it wasn't a class that I couldn't remember it was the mythos of Toni Soda

    This is really good interview. They touch on a lot here. I don't know if Gaskins did himself justice just leading with what he thought was the most sizzle.

    2018-19 Husker opponents

    When Miles was taking to Gaskins on the radio he said that Nebraska's last 3 opponents would be determined by the strength of the team in the B1G-ACC challenge. Considering we did draw a "top 25" team, we will see lesser opponents than what we might have seen facing someone like Boston College.

    According to the mural of Frank Solich on the wall of the N-Zone that might be as good as it gets.
  18. This doesn't have the first few years but should do. For the most part Barry's numbers look somewhat uninspiring which seems to fit his personality. His defensive numbers seemed constant; he didn't pressure the ball and concentrated on making the other team take tough shots. The block numbers indicated he had a lengthy bouncy team and rosters with Dourisseau, WIlkerson, and Maric (all still playing pro ball) back that up. His offense was hit or miss with the head scratching 2003 (miss) and 2004 (hit) seasons with a lot of the same guys. The 2003 team is the one that lost to Alaska-Anchorage. Brian Conklin and Nate Johnson combined to shoot under 25% from 3 to set a standard that not even Tim Miles could top. The next season the Huskers, armed with an easier non-con, ripped through nets and saw Conk and Nate combine to shoot 50% from 3. Would Maric have been as good with Barry? Doc not only force fed the big man his junior year but saw his fg% jump 100 points (from .472 to .573). Would Maric have just naturally shot better with age and experience or was part of his success playing in Doc's crawling up efficient offense? I forget who Barry might have been bringing in for 2006-07. I think it was a good class where guys decommitted. Does anyone have that info? It took Barry 8 years to make the tourney at Butler. He might have done it with a Senior year Maric and a good enough supporting cast. He might not have. Collier did recruit the state well. Overall fairly underwhelming.
  19. Facilities are like the issue of not having less than a four year contract: they are something you have to recruit around. Having better recruiting assistants would have done a lot more for him than any facilities. Given more money for assistants would Sadler gotten better guys or just paid his guys more?
  20. While I agree with you that Doc is a good Xs and Os guy if you look at Doc's 3pt attempts allowed numbers and 3pt makes % against they're the same as they were at Nebraska...they're on the high end of Div 1. In this era of people gravitating towards the 3pt shot Doc's guard the paint at all costs defense just isn't as effective as it used to be. Maybe Doc could pull off a better record than Miles in this era. Could he do it with guys he recruited?

    Not sure this works without Bo Ryan there. Maybe last year was a fluke.... Maybe not

    My question as I haven't watched them a ton: Is their offense notably different with Teske in at center instead of Wagner?
