  1. Exhibition Game: Nebraska at Mississippi St

    Let me...step out for a moment and... go find... and resurrect that thread.
  2. Offseason Potpourri

    We don't really have a thread for random offseason tidbits or misfits, so I figured I'd start one. Feel free to include anything and everything that doesn't belong in other threads, kidneys included. It looks like Roby is trying to jump on top of the rim next season:
  3. Developing story: NCAA fraud and corruption probe

    For quick reference: "Yes" - Michigan State, Wisconsin "No" - All other B1G teams "Decline to answer" - Big Ten Conference
  4. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    Sports fans on the Pacific Coast are really good at doing this. I suppose we're lucky to have a fanbase that at least shows up to the game in the first place.
  5. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    Along with 75,000 other fans who didn't stick around for the final quarter in the stadium. Such a sad state to be in for this program.
  6. Developing story: NCAA fraud and corruption probe

    Good to know... I'm just glad we were able to sway our recruits to coming here based on offering up recommended books. Such a great recruiting advance!
  7. Developing story: NCAA fraud and corruption probe

    If I recall, we got in trouble for providing students with books from the recommended/optional list, beyond that of the required textbooks. Which I guess was not allowed.
  8. Y'know, I'm tryna keep calm.

    Forget the collegiate/apparel scandal, I want the FBI to investigate why Nebraska doesn't have anymore cool Nebrasketball merchandise anymore.
  9. This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-10-12/nike-s-40-off-groupons-are-sign-of-sneaker-giant-s-u-s-malaise "TheThe markdowns come as U.S. teens shy away from Nike and opt for rivals Adidas and Vans, according to a survey released this week by Piper Jaffray. Nike remained the favorite sports brand among upper-income teenagers, with 46 percent of respondents naming it. But that’s down from 51 percent a year ago. Affinity for Adidas nearly doubled to 11 percent and Vans, which is owned by VF Corp., gained 300 basis points to 12 percent."
  10. Don't get me wrong, I actually like Adidas more than Nike. In all reality, I despise Nike (not for the apparel, but for their business practices). With that said, when it comes to being innovative, hip, and modern, Adidas gets blown out of the water. And whenever Adidas comes out with a good idea, they over-saturate it across the market and makes it become obsolete. For instance, NC State has the SAME EXACT design that Nebraska/Wisconsin had for their alternative uniforms: It doesn't take a lot to figure out that Adidas is behind the ball (pun completely intended) and struggle to connect with their audience (the student athletes and fans). Nike continually comes up with more innovative and creative ideas and makes those unique to each school. Note: Please leave the whole "Nike creates successful programs" business out of the discussion. Thank you in advance.
  11. Eichorst Out

    There's certainly a little merit to putting some pressure on some programs when the last conference football championship we played in was 5 years ago and the last one we won was 18 years ago. Our last basketball conference tournament championship was 23 years ago and the last outright regular season championship we won was 67 years ago. There's certainly some room for improvement.
  12. Eichorst Out

    A top 25 finish is expecting us to be in the top 7% of all Divison I basketball programs. That's the equivalent percentage of saying we should be the #9 team in football every year. I'm not saying shoot for the stars, but let's at least shoot for being one of the 68 teams in the tournament first.

    Were you born after 2007?
  14. Offseason Potpourri

    I reeeeeaaaallly hope they don't go the route of these types of designs/concepts: BAD Oregon (full court design): (Side note: GOOD Long Beach State does make it a little more tasteful): BAD Auburn (oversized logo): (Side note: GOOD Notre Dame does a decent job at using large accent logos): BAD Manhattan (paint bucket court): (Side note: GOOD Central Florida at least has some contrast in their full painted court):
  15. Offseason Potpourri

    Maybe it's just me, but I really like the court that we have right now. And that's not a "change is bad," it a "I really like that court!"

    Maybe it's just me, but I really like the court that we have right now. And that's not a "chance is bad," it a "I really like that court!"

    What kind of shoes does he wear?
  18. This should get you a little excited...

    It looks like 8 of our players might have lost their shoe contracts after the news of the Adidas scandal broke
  19. This should get you a little excited...

    One thing to factor in is how well is how much the other Big Ten teams have improved over the years. I don't have a solid answer for that, but theoretically net improvement means how we're faring relative to our competition.
