  1. Beware Memorial Day weekend, though.
  2. He gave something of a tacit one after the first of the year, I think. Then, as things started to go south, rumors swirled and play fell of precipitously and he could have quelled all the speculation and didn't. Allowed a whole lot of drama carry on longer than it needed to.
  3. Then why did let him blow around in the wind while the season went into the tank?
  4. We're not buddies, but I've been around the team enough to see the potential there. Not sure if he'll get there this year or not or ever.
  5. Then why can't a sophomore?
  6. Jordy's more than that. He's got a magnetic personality to him. And he has a strong desire to get better. People will follow that. Everything I've seen and heard about the kid screams leader to me. Evan was one of the more vocal guys on the floor last year, initiating huddles and such after fouls, that type of thing. I don't know what he's like off the floor. He's going to be a role player, though, even if he starts, that's what he'll be. How often does your leadership come from that kind of player?
  7. Charles Barkley? The guy who puts his TV on a clapper?
  8. Personally, I think the most natural born leader on the team is Jordy, at least from the guys that played last year. Taylor has some of that in him, too. And perhaps, Gill. But none of them will be the focal point of anything we do. Can your "alpha dog" be a guy that isn't an upperclassman, your star or even a main contributor? If Glynn can find that, he'll take his game to the next level.
  9. Basketball beat writer for Hail Varsity.
  10. Team Red has a bench. They have the edge.
  11. That's probably true. Looking back through the numbers, other than Creighton, whenever we played a high major school in the non-con, they shot 39% or better. We were just bad at 3-point defense. Maybe they should extend that pack line a bit instead of contracting it again.
  12. Gill and Taylor's minutes will be determined by how healthy Gill can get. If he's pre-injury, he'll play and play a lot. He'll take Taylor's minutes, I think. We haven't seen a healthy Gill yet. But our defense seemed to take a dive once he went down. I have no idea what to make of Palmer. I think he could be a starter, I think he could find himself as the 7th or 8th man in the rotation.
  13. Be careful projecting incoming freshmen to be difference makers. We all expected Roby to be that and he didn't quite get there. I know he had the injuries that slowed him down in the summer. I'd just caution against putting too much on Allen and Nana. Hopefully they light the world on fire. That would be fun.
  14. #CallRickBarry
  15. Padilla's a good dude. Knows his basketball. Decent writer.
  16. Ah, Silver, I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm glad this place can be a bit of a harbor for you. Peace to you and your family.
  17. Or given the "Old Yeller'" treatment.
  18. Winning always matters and with the lack of it, if what Hooper says is true, that environment becomes far less palatable if the wins don't accompany it. To imply winning wasn't a factor, I think its probably a little naive. Nick was the only one who I think would have left regardless. The other three, I think if the season had gone better, the conversation whether they would have left or not is a valid one.
  19. From the World Herald: http://www.omaha.com/huskers/mens-basketball/ed-morrow-s-decision-to-transfer-leaves-husker-coach-tim/article_7449afcc-14dc-11e7-94d1-df0c482dda4a.html
  20. No you're not. That thought might be more prevalent here than in other places, but you're far from alone.
  21. That's the one that hurts the most, IMO.
  22. San Diego St. is open. Oral Roberts fired their coach.
  23. I don't expect Jack to put on much, if any weight, certainly not 15 lbs. He wants to stay a lean, mean, 3-point shooting machine. Or at least tune up the mechanism, since I don't think I'd call him a machine, yet. I do think we'll see him take a decent jump in his shooting percentage next year.
  24. - One of the best games I've seen from Jacobson all year. - Thought the effort was good coming out of the gate. They looked a lot more motivated and engaged than they did on Sunday. - One of the better offensive rebounding efforts too. ***Then Minnesota went on their run*** - Lynch is a load. Good lord he's a tough matchup. - Oh, a T on an assistant? With Eichorst on hand? - The last 5 minutes of the first half were just brutal. - How do they let things get away so quickly? NU was right there and then Minnesota just hammered 'em. This team shouldn't be this bad right now. It feels like the whole ball of yarn has completely unraveled. - I don't know if it was coincidental or if it played a part, but this all went to pot after Lee's article...it looks like the players are carrying a burden they shouldn't be asked to carry. - They looked like they were playing out the string. Just no pride. Mostly evident on the defensive end. - I stopped the bullet points somewhere before the 2nd media timeout of the 2nd half...
  25. I'm not disputing any of those things, but it doesn't make this true, either.
