  1. Now What?

    Does anyone find that a post game diatribe separate from the post game thread is a addition to this forum?
  2. Uh...they still have another home game. Why is this senior day?
  3. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Really missed the boat on not making one of these for every game

  5. Nebraska Cornhuskers (20-8) vs Illinois Fighting Illini (12-15) Date: Sunday, Feb 18th, 2017 Time: 2:30 pm CST Arena: State Farm Center TV Broadcast: BTN Radio: Husker Sports Network, including 590 AM (Omaha), 1400 AM (Lincoln) and 880 AM (Lexington) Play-by-play: Kent Pavelka Analysis: Jake Muhleisen Illinois Info Head Coach: Brad Underwood Location: Champaign, IL Conference: B1G Nickname: Fightin Illini Mascot: Chief Illiniwek They got rid of Chief Illiniwek in 2007 Shirt not to wear: Orange, Blue Last time out: Lost to Indiana Typical Rotation Depth: 9+ Line: Illinois by 1 Tempo: Fast paced Defense: West Vriginia-esque pressrue Style: Middle assist % / Low 3pa% Conference only Four Factors Effective FG%: 48.9 10 45.1 2 51.0 Turnover %: 20.2 14 16.4 8 18.6 Off. Reb. %: 31.0 3 34.1 14 28.8 FTA/FGA: 31.0 9 29.6 5 33.6 Illinois turning the ball over and not protecting their glass. They will chase their misses for offensive rebounds. Kipper Nichols and Leron Black need a body on them at all times. Most Frequent Lineups over the last 5 games Nebraska PG SG SF PF C Pct 1 5 Glynn Watson 6-0 173 Jr 13 Anton Gill 6-3 195 Sr 24 James Palmer 6-6 210 Jr 15 Isaiah Roby 6-8 225 So 14 Isaac Copeland 6-9 221 Jr 27.4 Illinois PG SG SF PF C Pct 1 1 Trent Frazier 6-1 170 Fr 24 Mark Alstork 6-5 190 Sr 23 Aaron Jordan 6-5 210 Jr 2 Kipper Nichols 6-6 225 So 12 Leron Black 6-7 230 Jr 6.8 Michael Finke has been out the last two games and didn't practice on Saturday. Last time out he broke out of a slump to put up 16 against Nebraska. Players to watch: Trent Frazier Underwood teams tend to have a few guys who dominate the shots and dynamic freshman guard Trent Frazier has stepped into that role for the Illini. Look for him along with Leron Black and Kipper Nichols to dominate the touches when on the court. The Skinny It's been a rough 2018 for the Illini who currently sit in 14th place in the B1G after losing 4 straight. The last time these two teams met in Lincoln the Huskers needed a last second shot to pull out a game in which both teams could rarely hit from outside. Anyone who can get it going from 3 today is going to have a big advantage in this one. Nebraska doesn't really need the 3 as much as Illinois though. Illinois pressure defense essentially gives you free run at the rim and when you're not getting layups there is a lot of potential for FTs. Keep at the rim, block out on defense, and the Huskers are walking out of Champaign with a victory. Illinois sure could put together a game today but you have to wonder if that teams has much more fight left in them. Prediction: Nebraska 82 - Illinois 74 View full article

  9. Roby was 0-4 on dunks against Illinois

    We didn't have an Illinois thread last time so I'm going to evergreen this one. Is Finke playing today?
  10. What the heck are you talking about? It's ok to admit that they have a good program. They were impressively able to get out of the MVC and into the Big East. And then you're jumping all over the guy who's running the HHCC contest. This last month on here is going to put everyone on edge. Everyone try to keep their chill, ok?
  11. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    How? You typically tend to get an injury factor in if a guy was out for a time period and you can make the argument that the team would have won those games with him. If you lose a guy for the rest of the season, it's up to you to figure out how to win without him.
  12. What If? Play-in game

    I guess when one longs for the worst they can't be let down. Does anyone find value in these posts that lay out THIS MUST HAPPEN OR ELSE threads that get started? Like the guy who sits behind you at a game and gripes about every single thing that goes wrong is a fan...he's showing up at the games....but how much is that enhancing your experience?
  13. Good insight into the process To me the biggest takeaway was this At this point we're just concerned about making the tournament as opposed to seeding. If you look at the bracketology results there are often times that a team isn't picked to make the tournament by most but is selected by the committee (sometimes it's none....sometimes it's 2) Thus, I would put a lot of weight into the number of people picking us to be in the tournament (after our regular season is over) but know that if it's questionable that we might get in despite the projections or might miss despite the projections. Clear as mud?
  14. 99% Chance Our Name is Called if We Win out

  15. There was a 1.2% chance that Purdue was going to lose those 3 games in a row according to http://www.barttorvik.com He gives them a 0.08% chance losing the last 3.
  16. I think Penn St is white hot right now but I think Purdue snaps back for a Sunday night game and wins by double digits.
  17. Bracketologists are people who try to predict what the committee is going to do. ASSUMING we win out, we have the fingerprints of teams that do make the tourney (14-4 in the B1G) and don't make the tourney (No "Big" wins) Much like my father-in-law from Michigan I'm going to be rooting for the Huskers and Wolverines for the next two weeks
  18. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Which of the other 10+ games that effected our SOS went for or against us? I have to think at this point that when we have Michigan or Maryland play a team we've played twice we're better off with those Mich/Mary winning to put on our "these are the teams we beat" list than the minor bumps in SOS and RPI.
  19. No Sit Sunday x Duce

    Seems like some fuzzy memories there
  20. No Sit Sunday x Duce

    If I remember right someone on the staff referred to it unofficially as "No Shit Sunday"
  21. Old grouping system vs Quadrants
  22. Hate Will Never Win

    I'd ask that we'd keep to what's going with the team....not because what's going on everywhere else isn't important or even more important than anything else we discuss here but because of the limited scope of this board.
  23. 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
