  3. Interesting observations about our roster last season

    That depends on the circumstances. One situation that would keep him around is if they finish the season strong and there are no major player losses due to transfers or guys going pro. The other situation is if the job security of the athletic director is not seen as being secure. An AD on the hot seat, especially at a place without the strongest tradition, is not going to be able to make a plan A hire (or plan B, plan C, plan D....). And a weak hire by an AD who is already on shaky ground will just make his job situation worse. With 32 scheduled games (13 non-conference, 18 conference, 1 Big Ten tournament game at least) you pretty much have to win 18 to make the NIT. I wouldn't like Miles' chances to stick around if he wins 15 to 17, but he would still have a chance.
  4. Rank the league's top 5 PGs

    That depends, does that poor man live in a trailer house, or in a tar paper shack, or in a car, or under a bridge, or on a garbage dump?
  5. The Isaac Copeland watch

    Even if it was proven that there was a misdiagnosis by Georgetown (willfully or not), it would not be very likely that the appeal for immediate eligibility would be won. The rules for midyear transfers are punitive because the NCAA wants to deter players from transferring in December. I'd be surprised if they would be willing to grant anyone a waiver like this.
  6. Brady Heiman is 'N'

    Luger is going to UNK.
  7. I'm thinking the site has been hacked by Bluejay fans. Creighton delenda est.
  8. Offseason Potpourri

    The appeal is for a waiver that would allow him to play immediately. As far as I know, there is no precedent for this. There have been plenty of waivers granted for players that transfer at the end of the second semester to play immediately - family medical issues, coaching changes, old team is on probation - but I don't think there's been one for a midseason transfer. The rule is, a player that transfers at semester is not eligible until the end of the first semester the next season. Normally the player also loses a year of eligibility, i.e., if he transfers as a freshman, then the next year he's a sophomore. The exception to this is if the player is already redshirting or has played and has been granted a medical redshirt. In this case, he is still not eligible until the start of the second semester, but does not lose the year of eligibility. Copeland has already been granted the medical redshirt, as he only played in seven of Georgetown's games, and the threshold of games you can play in and still get a redshirt is 30%. So he will be a junior in eligibility. .
  9. Offseason Potpourri

    That does beg the question, why wasn't he more productive at Winthrop? Because, yeah, he looks the part. Maybe it's because of their perimeter style on offense and how he was used. Or maybe he's one of those guys who has got a lot of the skills but never quite put it together, as the old cliché goes.
  10. Offseason Potpourri

    Hopefully the two Big Ten games are ones that Copeland probably wouldn't change the outcome of, ideally I'd say Rutgers at home and Michigan State on the road. I'm guessing one will be home and one away, so you wouldn't want either to be a toss-up game. If you get, say, an Iowa/Michigan/Wisconsin/Maryland type game at home, and an Illinois/Rutgers/Ohio State type game on the road, you could realistically go 0-2 without Copeland and 2-0 with him. The other games that I'd feel a lot better having Copeland in the lineup would be at St. John's, the Advocare game 1 and Advocare game 3 (not game 2 because they should be able to get by Marist without him and that West Virginia would be a tough one either way), and at Creighton. Also you have to worry about losing a game or two early in the second semester that they wouldn't otherwise, while he's settling into the lineup. So the impact on the W/L column could be significant.
  11. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    We're playing UCF, in Orlando, and if UCF wins it sets up a game for them with West Virginia. I am not expecting unbiased officiating.
  12. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    Would rather have Michigan State on the road, switched with Purdue/Michigan/Northwestern. MSU would be extremely tough home or away, and any of the other three would go from being not favored on the road to being at least a toss-up at home.
  13. Offseason Potpourri

    If Wisconsin makes the NCAA Tournament this year, then Greg Gard is the second coming of Mike Krzyewski. If they'll ever have a down year, this is it.
  14. Offseason Potpourri

    If he shoots 70% or more from 3 he'll average double figures next year. (That's from 3 feet and in.)
  15. Who Starts?

    You're right that we ran two different offenses, when they tried to run it through the post with Jordy and when they didn't. It wasn't very effective - in the nine games Jordy hit 3 or more shots from the field Nebraska only won one. Since you'll probably get 22-25 minutes a game out of Jordy, you either have to be more effective when you switch off the emphasis of running the offense through the post when Jordy is on the bench; find a backup center you can run the same offense with; or not run the offense with Jordy as the focal point in the first place, but run the same things whether he's on the floor or not.
