  1. Scott Frost says...........NO?

    Seems to me going back to running a Pac-12 offense against Pac-12 teams would be easier than having your lunch eaten by SEC lines even if you have to do it with less talent.
  2. Lincoln – For one night, Pinnacle Bank Arena will be a sea of Red and White, as adidas and Nebraska Athletics have teamed up for the first-ever stripe Stripe the Vault night on Tuesday, Dec. 5. For the Huskers’ Big Ten home opener against Minnesota, adidas is providing Husker basketball shirts that will be placed on every seat inside Pinnacle Bank Arena. In order to accommodate providing shirts for the entire arena, size XL shirts will be the only shirts available. Fans who can’t wear an XL shirt are encouraged to wear either a red or white shirt, depending on their seat location inside the arena. Fan can check what color their section is by visiting the arena seating map below. The color-coded map is listed on the bottom of the page and also posted on Huskers.com.

    Kelly would be a fool not to take that UCLA job.

  6. 2017 Advocare Tournament Schedule

    In a way, all of us has a Tacko Fall to face. For some, shyness might be their Tacko Fall. For others, a lack of education might be their Tacko Fall. For us, Tacko Fall is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us. But as sure as my name is Lucky Day, the people of Lincoln can conquer their own personal Tacko Fall, who also happens to be *the actual* Tacko Fall

    Oregon St has been a poor shooting 3pt squad. If we end up playing them we should have a slight advantage

    It's fair. We pooped our pants that game.
  9. The Official Media Thread

    Tim Miles Show Lewis is the unofficial offensive coordinator now: they've put in more actions to lead to baskets generated off of assists and are running on offense that is a merger of this and Miles' ISO offense. They're continuously iterating through this. (The assist numbers back this up) Eric from Cozad calls to check in with the coach. They're currently in each other's good graces Talked Brady and Xavier: He sees Brady at the 4 and Xavier is the fastest guy he's ever recruited The DMV area has been great for recruiting. Texas is tough because we don't play there anymore. They didn't want to play Allen vs St Johns but did because of foul trouble. He's still up on the air when he'll play next Mentions using Copeland and Roby at the same time....can use zone to counteract when that lineup goes out there against bigger teams Didn't like only using 1-3-1 last year. Will do 1-1-2-1 that ends up as a 2-3 zone toward the ends of game as a "prevent" defense. Talked about Jordy's struggles and some of the issues with his footwork; tangent on how they track what guys are thinking
  10. HHCC Standings - End of Week 02

    End of year: Your highest score will be subtracted from your final point total. No Games Missed equals a -25 bonus to your final score.
  11. The Official Media Thread

    Miles last night on the radio show: "Well...there are people out there who say that I run the ball hog offense"
  12. Is it time to start Roby?

    It looks like that time is getting close
  13. The Official Media Thread

    Yes, all from home. If you read all the stuff he/they have put out over the last several years, you'll find that the opinions are more national writer than they are average guy at home. To boot, Miles follows these guys on twitter.

    Big 10 geeks has a review for all the Big Ten teams; Here is Nebraska's http://www.bigtengeeks.com/17-18-season-preview-nebraska/
  16. I retweeted the NebManager's account's tweet about this
  17. Via UNL Postgame Notes *-Nebraska’s 92 points is the most since scoring 93 in a double OT win against Iowa last season. It is NU’s highest total in regulation since also scoring 92 against Southeastern Louisiana during the 2015-16 campaign. *-Isaac Copeland posted his first double-figure performance of the season with 30 points and eight rebounds, setting or tying season bests in both categories. Copeland went 12-of-14 from the floor, including a trio of 3-pointers, in reaching double figures for the first time this season. Copeland hit 8-of-9 shots from the floor in the first half, as he had 19 of his points in the first half. *-Copeland’s 30 points is a season-high for any Husker. The previous high was 21 by Glynn Watson Jr. against Eastern Illinois. It was Copeland’s second 30-point game as a collegian, as he had 32 points vs. Marquette in 2015-16. *-Anton Gill finished with a career-high 16 points, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range. Gill’s previous high was 15 against Florida International when he was at Louisville during the 2014-15 season. His previous high at NU was 10 on two occasions. Copeland’s 30-point game was the first by a Husker since Glynn Watson Jr. had 34 against Iowa last season. *-Nebraska dished out 20 assists, its highest total since dishing out 22 assists against Rutgers on Feb. 6, 2016. *-Evan Taylor’s five assists is a career high. His previous best was four on two occasions, most recently against Rutgers on Jan. 21, 2017. *-Nebraska shot 60.6 percent in the first half, its best shooting half of the season. Nebraska Coach Tim Miles On Isaac Copeland and Anton Gill “I am so happy for them. People realize that that two guys go through major surgery, back surgery (for Isaac) and the (knee) injury that Anton went down. I am just so happy for them because I know what a relief it is for them, and I know how exciting it is for them. They deserve it. They have worked every day. They have struggled without any groaning and griping and they just stayed with it. Hopefully this is that start of the beginning.” On how much this was needed “Eventually you figure there is going to be a return to a mean, and we are going to be okay. But, at the same time, you do not know. I am really happy with those two guys and see them bust out, and I am looking forward to other guys getting a better rhythm and our whole operation getting better, especially on offense. I thought we were solid defensively and to hold these guys to 70 is not that easy when they average 48 in the second half of their first three games.” On the team’s depth “I was asked ‘Is this what you hope this team can be? If Glynn or James does not have a good night but that other guys pick up?’ I said that this is what the team has to be, it is what we have not had. That is what the depth is that we have talked about all year because the depth has got quality and can make plays. On North Dakota’s team “I also want to say that I really like Brian Jones’s team. I really like his team. I am impressed with them. I think they are very scary offensively, and they are very athletic. He has got drivers and shooters. Evan Taylor did a tremendous job on (Geno) Crandall in the first half. I don’t think people realize how tough he is to guard one-on-one and. We had some guys helping him and we were able to shrink the floor. We did a great job on him. You can’t keep him down forever. That is a good basketball team. You can see why they won the Big Sky last year and you can see why they are one of the top teams in the Big Sky this year and so it was a good win.” Junior forward Isaac Copeland On breaking out with 30 points today "It felt good. I have a good support system around me. My dad pretty much calls daily to let me know to keep working and stay positive, it's eventually going to happen. I didn't think it was going to be 30 points, but I mean I'll take it. I just wanted to be aggressive. To be honest, I'm taking a lot of the same shots, maybe more at the rim, but a lot of the same shots I've been taking. They just happened to fall today." Senior guard Anton Gill On his performance and being healthy "Honestly, I'm just glad to be back playing after a year, after the groin (missing the first two games) and everything. All of this just feels great to be back doing something that I love so it is icing on the cake, but just to be back out there with my guys means everything to me." On returning from injury "I got cleared right before the season (practice) so I just had to get my legs back under me, just a lot of fatigue and stuff like that. I think missing those first two games was probably the best thing to happen for me. My legs feel great, they feel bouncy again. Now, I feel like I'm getting back to myself." Sophomore forward Isaiah Roby On offensive improvement "That was big just because this team was similar to St. John’s in they played a lot of guards. They had four guards that drove to the rim. The fact that we could show that we made improvements since our one day of practice already is good for us. Offensively, we knew that it was going to come. We have a lot of talent. It helps to get stops. It helps your offense already so when we get our defense going, our offense is going to come too." North Dakota Head Coach Brian Jones Opening Statement “There were some bright moments. Obviously, I don’t think we came out valuing the basketball and that was one of our biggest keys. We had to value the basketball, we couldn’t turn it over and allow them to get some easy baskets, and they did. They scored 18 points in transition alone in that first half. You just can’t beat a team of that caliber, of that athleticism like that. The second half we cut it to ten, but Connor (Avants) picks two quick fouls and that kind of deflated our rhythm a little bit. Some of the things we tried to take away we did, some of the things we needed to take away we did not. So, it is a process with this group, a lot of new faces. I give them a lot of credit. They have not shot the ball even remotely or nearly as well as they had today. I think they have got guys kind of like us, guys who are coming off redshirt years and still finding a rhythm.” On the season so far "The first couple of weeks are good for our team with a lot of new faces just focusing on growth and coming together chemistry wise and understanding what this process is all about. That is what we were just talking about. It is a process and you have to embrace the habits every day otherwise you’re going to be very inconsistent on both sides of the basketball. The new guys have really got to embrace the habits that they need to have in order to bring that success."
  18. Random thing to note on Copeland: He jumps a little bit when shooting FTs. They tend to not go in when he doesn't.
  19. I'll give it a shot, please and thank you. They're a team that should compete for the Big Sky title even though they lost a lot of scoring and both of their centers grad-transferred on them. It seems like we could have beat them by 30 if we hadn't spent any time working on trying to get Jordy going and kept our regulars in for the last 2 minutes so we could get And-1 opportunities.
  20. UCF is a must win

    I could just start tacking on any research I do onto these threads so I don't have to clutter the forums with such things...
  21. All, I have some very bad news. Long time member @Row6Seat10 has passed. For those of you who did not know him in person (I didn't) his name was Brian Karnatz and he had been battling colon cancer for over a year now. Always positive and dutifully dedicated to the Huskers, you couldn't really tell from his posting other than it's been notably absent for the last month. When I first took over running this site, Brian WAS the women's section. He specifically was the reason I started posting previews for the women's team on the front page. Brian would have been 59 next Tuesday. His funeral will be on Thursday
  22. @uneblinstu won't be available until later - Tried to feed Jordy in the post early. Not very effective right now but kudos to the staff for keeping after it in a game where you could leave some possessions on the floor - The Issac Copeland show tonight punctuated by his first 3s of the year. He's one of those guys that all of a sudden has a bunch of points. Was aggressive ont the boards early on - Evan Taylor was all over Crandall in the first half, basically shutting him down. The rest of the team helped out as well in a pretty good showing of taking away a team's best player. Taylor led the team in assists with 5. - Watson had a fairly chill day. He seems to be a magnet at times for random fouls. Even then he still put in 13 points and was one of 4 Huskers in double digits - Palmer the same deal...where is the guy who blew up in the preseason? - Anton Gill has a career high 16 points including a 4-5 showing from downtown. Can he put up a few more showing like this or will this be just one of those good days? - Roby once again filling up the stat sheet with points, blocks, rebounds, assists. He's still hesitant with that shot, especially from 3. What happens when he really becomes confident? - McVeigh still MIA. - Team shot 40% from 3 and 52.9% overall. We needed that.
