  1. OT: Biographies

    I had someone who knows I'm a big sports fan ask me if I could recommend biographies on major NBA players, he specifically named Jordan and LeBron. I don't read a ton of sports biographies so I didn't have any suggestions. He's got a young son, about 7 or 8 who's really into basketball. Anyone on here have any help here?
  2. Scheduling

    I believe the KC event also comes with a couple cupcakes at PBA. The B1G/ACC game should be a decent one, too. I also think they're playing two of those conf. games early in the year, so we could have a similar stretch like we did this year with MSU, Minn, KU and Creighton.
  3. Collier, Sadler or Miles

    A comment on in-bounds plays: - I saw a lot, and I mean A TON of teams use very similar action on inbounds play in college basketball, including at some very good programs. It's a safe play that very rarely gets screwed up. - I have seen NU have quite a bit of success on the secondary action off that basic in-bound play. What I guess I'm saying is I think Miles and NU gets a bad wrap here and my thinking has evolved a bit on this. I guess that was two comments...
  4. Husker Athletics Priority

    How many of these games happened concurrently? Games on the same day happen all the time, but I don't recall many happening at the same time.
  5. Let me get this straight...

    They literally were happening at the same time...
  6. 2018-19 Husker opponents

    NU will have every opportunity next year. Win 13 games with that slate next year and you're in easily. Heck, if it's the right 11, you might be able to get in.
  7. Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    The football brand is still pretty strong. If Frost turns it around like we all hope and think he will, it'll explode again. It's dormant, not weak.

    When was the last time this scenario happened?
  9. Hank Bounds interview

    They hired one of the top 15-20 best coaches in the country and put him in the Dallas/Fort Worth market. He damn well better have success.
  10. Hank Bounds interview

    So, then, was this a Moos decision or a Bounds one?
  11. Let me get this straight...

    Knowing this program not well Fatalism is no fun.
  12. Let me get this straight...

    I want to know how the roster shakes out before I settle on how excited I will or won't be for the season.
  13. Yep. HA! I think one thing is clear: The next season is gonna be full of drama, one way or the other.
  14. That's certainly possible, but there are a number of things that could happen that could impact Miles' future here. If he has another 20+ win season, I'm confident they'll be in the tourney. If he does that, he'll be in the catbird seat. We can go round and round about how and why Miles is in the situation he's in and who's at fault, and maybe it's not all on him, but a lot of it is.
  15. A lot of that is on him. He can firm up that ground this season. I get why Moos wouldn't want to give him a long term deal. His tenure here has been more volatile than it has been steady. As much as I maybe disagree with how this whole thing was handled doesn't mean there isn't some merit to it. It's a prove it season for Miles. I do believe he wants to be here and that he wants to be the guy here for a long time. He gets his chance to show he's the guy for the job this season.
  16. I don't believe that's a foregone conclusion at all.
  17. Xavier Johnson is N

    It is a bit perplexing...
  18. Xavier Johnson is N

    I don't think I've seen it either, but this will leave a little flicker of hope...
  19. Xavier Johnson is N

    He says we're still in the mix. So maybe there's a little hope yet, but usually these sort of things don't result in the kid going back to the original school.
  20. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Maybe next year.
  21. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    I mean, I was kinda surprised he wasn't on the list when we heard about Palmer and Cope.

  23. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    I was actually looking for a link like that but nothing came up in my google search. Wish I'd know about the aforementioned post before I made mine...
  24. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    None of the above. NCAA moved it to 10 days after the combine, which takes place from May 16-20, so that would make the deadline May 30. The NBA deadline to withdraw is June 11.
