  1. Next Years Starting 5

    Gill At some point I think Nana gets there but I think he's going to be one of those guys who has to figure out defense. Just my feeling.
  2. Next Years Starting 5

    Probably bigger to start the year and then smaller as we either figure things out or have injuries. I think we have 10 to start the season with Nana and Thor on the outside.

    Quick and dirty from verbal commits Middle of the pack seems about right especially when you're able to lay out the other teams. BTW, Wisconsin is generally low and proof that team chemistry, roster composition, and coaching can take you further than what the numbers might project.
  4. Anton Gill

    Everyone here wants an Anton Gill that would be good enough to merit starting at the 2 because think of that depth. We've also seen enough results where guys were never the same after such surgeries. This is especially true in Gill's case because I don't think we've seen much/any play from him with no health issues.

    Anton has a new twitter account as well

    This is in reference to JP's depth chart. @Jacob Padilla has Nebraska granted you any access to practice this summer/season? Gotta say for as open as Miles is with a lot of things that the limited access at times to that is frustrating.

    IDK. To me I'd think basketball success wouldn't matter if we were a football powerhouse because you can just shrug and say that football is what really matters.

    Considering there is a good enough chance we will end up firing Miles after this season I'm fairly terrified about the thought of SE hiring a new coach and then being fired not so long after.
  9. Serious question ...

    Rebounding is also a concern for me with this squad. Jordy and Okeke probably won't play together so they basically spell one of Morrow or Jacobson. Might we play Roby and Copeland together and can that equate to a post from lat year and Tai?

    Any depth chart at this point is essentially a guessing game
  11. Serious question ...

    Being better than last year is a pretty low bar in terms of W-L record
  12. Copeland

    Watson sucked it up from 3 as a freshman to the tune of 26.7% Our best 3pt shooter from last year struggled as a freshman. It matters. Move up a level and guys are faster and bigger. It's possible that Allen is the best "pure shooter" on the team and ends up shooting 32% from 3 this season.

    Not going to redshirt
  14. Copeland

    The only time we've won at the CLINK it was the QWEST and it was a Barry Collier led NIT team. At this point I'd believe that MacD's team beat Miles in the 3 legged race at the last Miles family reunion. Simply winning in any sort of fashion would qualify as destroy at this point. Adding Copeland and having three games prior against BC, MSU, and Minny certainly helps I think but boy let's play the first 5 minutes without needing to change our underwear and go from there.
  15. Next Years Starting 5

    That implies he would start even if he's not the best option. If his back is ok, he is.
  16. Next Years Starting 5

    Me neither though I can almost certainly project that Copeland will start and Thor will not be in the rotation on day 1.
  17. Next Years Starting 5

    One advantage to having Jack start is being able to figure out relatively quickly if he's got it or not from 3. McVeigh as a 6'8" 40-50% 3pt shooter is a guy we want to roll out and we have options if he's a 0-10% 3pt shooter.

    This is a homer site so no

    Not official-official but it's not like Rothstein just makes stuff up. I'm genuinely surprised and excited!
  21. So, last season ...

    Here are Miles' numbers with 3PA% (number of 3s vs all shots taken) Last year was the least number of 3s %-wise of Miles' time here and the 2nd lowest of his coaching career. It makes sense looking at our roster where you had essentially no 3pt shooting from the 4/5 (Morrow, Jordy, MJ, Roby) and then a bunch of minutes from Evan Taylor. Is Roby going to shoot 3s this year? You're looking at Copeland/Roby at the 4 and that should easy translate into a position that now generates 3pt attempts. Will we minimize minutes from Taylor? What sort of shooter will Palmer be? It would be a shock if we were to turn into Michigan or Wisconsin in terms of attempts but it's not too hard to see with our roster adding more guys who can shoot 3s that we can expect Nebraska to be a team that shoots 3s at a rate more like the 2013-14 and 2014-15 teams. Hopefully we can shoot a bit better than those teams.
  22. So, last season ...

    The guys no longer on the team shot 62 for 215 (28.8%) If Roby, Gill, Taylor, and Copeland can combine for at least that low mark we'll be a better shooting team
