  1. Bellwether games

    UCF is playing Navy & it's option attack this weekend and guess who's simulating their QB in practice? 42 year old Coach Frost. How badass is that?
  2. B1G moves to 20-game conference schedule in 2018-19

    Needless to say that's gonna be a "Meat Grinder" so we better man up, bow the neck, GATA, & send a card home to Momma...
  3. Guard play

    There's no reason Watson shouldn't make an All-B1G team, and if we hit on half of the other questions he raises we'll be solid. 13th place my a**!
  4. Bill Moos named next NU athletic director

    Let's just hope he's NOT all hat and NO cattle...
  5. Bill Moos named next NU athletic director

    Or former Oregon OC #7 from Wood River?
  6. Bill Moos named next NU athletic director

    Does that mean Mike Leach is on his way...
  7. Next Years Starting 5

    Yesterday's win sent my mind whirling ahead as to what might be, and of course that always brings us to: what might the starting line-up look like next year? I'll take a crack. Watson Horne Jordy Jacobson Morrow That's some quick gaurds with some range, a bruising front line, and Evan, Jack, Isiah and the newcomers off the bench. I haven't even pulled the cork yet today and I'd say that looks pretty formidable.
  8. This should get you a little excited...

    I've always felt Lee B gives a clear eyed, fair assessment of the program. He will NEVER be mistaken for a Husker ball washer. That being said, by his standards yesterdays column was down right giddy to the point you could swear he was holding Pom Poms. But, everything he said was right. This squad has an eerie feel to 90/91, coming off a 10 win season you got back a healthy Reid, added Farmer & Pike and well we all know the rest. I like the way this roster is shaping up, and if their the worst team in the B1G I'll eat my hat!
  9. By the way ...

    Copeland & Allen could easily blossom into "Stars" and there's no reason to think we won't have a surprising amount of depth. Let all the Debbie Downers think whatever they want.
  10. A quicky in the sack with Lindy

    Aside from the fact that it's straight up lazy journalism, I really wouldn't know how to react if we were picked something other than last...
  11. Does Perkins still have Pie of the Month?
  12. Xavier Johnson is N

    More good news for a change, Miles is stockpiling talent!
  13. Rimington In

    He aint goin ANYWHERE!!! Oh did I mention he's Dave *bleepin* Rimington?
  14. Hump Day Motivation

    This "Bliss Buzz" and oh what a buzz it was, had my head spinning with the notions of B1G Tourney Titles & Sweet 16s. (Then came the Buckeyes & Baylor and that about brings us up to speed...)
  15. No news is good news

    Didn't Dick Cheney use to own Haliburton?
  16. Serendipity...

    I went to my local watering hole last weekend (ho hum) and had the good fortune of meeting Dorothy Moore, Jack's widow. I was treated to an evening of Husker hoops stories, some too off-color to be printed in a family forum such as this. (Who knew Moe Iba was such a cad!) & at the end of the night we did shots and I INSISTED she check out Huskerhoopscentral.com!
  17. Serendipity...

    My bad, damn Rumpleminze
  18. First Miles Presser of 2017-18

    After seeing the schedule, I'll say it right HERE, right NOW. We walk out of Omaha with a win this year.
  19. Thorir Thorbjarnarson is N!

    Has the look of a young Detlof Schrempf or maybe AK-47, wonder if he's into the Sugarcubes?
  20. Brady Heiman is 'N'

    Could blossom into the likes of the legendary Bill Johnson outta Plainview.... eat those Wheaties young man.
  21. OT: Eclipse Plans

    I work in downtown Lincoln and our Company is letting us out at noon, giving us glasses & snacks and I think the afternoon off... Now about that Happy Hour at O'Rourke's...
  22. My Head Hurts...

    I realize the Basketball program will always play second fiddle to the Football, but the coverage they receive has reached farcical proportions. One practice in, the LJS thought it was newsworthy to report on the music that was played while the team stretched, (Kick Start My Heart by the Crue, FYI). Please for the love of God, just give me an Isaac Copeland update and spare me the 3 deep depth chart of the Secondary...
  23. My Head Hurts...

    Since I'm venting here goes: How many times have you been at a bar/restaurant, brought up the Basketball team and heard, "Nebraska has a Basketball team?" Sadly the answer is TOO-MANY-TO-COUNT GBR!
  24. Rank the league's top 5 PGs

    1. Mason 2. Watson 3. Carr 4. Simmons 5. Bohannon With better shooters and his inevitable progression I expect Watson to be 1st team All-B1G his Senior year as we make our 2nd straight trip to the dance...
  25. I know it's a ways off, but my mind tends to wander during the dog days. I've been thru New York a couple of times, but haven't spent any real time there. So, I've had this baby penciled in for awhile now. 1st time at MSG, 1st B1G Tournament, it's a win-win all around. Was just wondering how many of you Hoop Heads were making the trip OR if there might even be some type of travel package in the works for us Board members? Like to hear some feedback either way...
