    NBA Playoffs

    I was wondering why the Super Sonics hadn't made the playoffs for a while. Now it all makes sense.
  2. In 2006, with what should have been a pretty good roster with some solid returnees and a decent recruiting class, the top returning player showed up 30 pounds overweight after an offseason regimen of doobies and Big Macs. The program was adrift. No one was in charge.

    There's a bigger difference between ORU and ODU than ODU and Nebraska. (Sorry for jumping all over a typographical error.)

    They've got another transfer that will be eligible, who averaged 16 as a freshman in the MAC. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4067391/michael-weathers

    Mixed Blessing? Lunchtime musing

    If Jordy had Smith's knowledge of the game and all of its intricacies, he'd be an all conference type of player.

    Mixed Blessing? Lunchtime musing

    I may not be remembering correctly, but it seemed that Gallegos was the only one who really moved around when he didn't have the ball, also. Teams had to chase him around all the time. Everybody else on that team seemed to want to wait until they had an isolation play or would just chuck up a 3 when they wanted to. They were a lot easier to defend without Gallegos.

    Hopefully Nebraska finds a way to shut him down when they play Kansas on April 6.

    They lose 3 players 44 minutes a game, 33 minutes at guard, 7 minutes at center, and 4 minutes at SF. (The 4 minutes at SF was a guy who transferred after the first semester.) They add three redshirts including the highly regarded Joey Hauser, the four star wing player, and a grad transfer SG/PG from Fordham. Some of the guard minutes will be made up by the grad transfer, some will be from increased minutes from the sophomore backup guard who averaged 18 minutes, some could be from Anim playing some at SG and not just at SF. It appears that Cain's 17 min/game was exclusively at the 4 last year (at 6'7" and 195), and Hauser played 23 min/game at the 4 and 9 min/game at the 3. Theo John played exclusively at C. So, they never played with a big lineup. They've got enough perimeter players that Sam Hauser will probably still get quite a few minutes at the 4 and Joey Hauser will get a lot of the rest. So if Ed is playing much at the 4, mark me down as surprised.

    NBA combine starts today

    No, you don't. It is still covered by the scholarship.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    I'm looking forward to making the drive to Minneapolis during the first week of April.

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Isaac Copeland, Aleks Maric, Kimani Ffriend, Venson Hamilton, Derrick Chandler, Carl Hayes, Tony Farmer, Rich King, Dave Hoppen, Chuck Jura, Bus Whitehead. Those are the only 11 players at Nebraska, listed at 6'9" or taller, that have averaged more than 12 points a game for a season. Other than when Danny Nee was here, we see about one a decade. There is a lot riding on Copeland's decision, as obviously he would not be easy to replace.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    Maybe he couldn't pass up the chance to be an answer to a trivia question: who was an assistant for both of the last two major conference teams that hadn't won a tournament game when they finally did win one?

    Contract Extensions

    Hopefully, next April, we can find out if you're right.

    I hope if that matchup happens, that Ed will try to showcase his perimeter game and attempt about ten 3 pointers.
