  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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!
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Who's going to MSG & the B1G Tourney

    That Orange Bowl story is no BS, passed a couple of gents on their way back from the beach decked out in their Keys and one said to the other, "Gol dang it, I ain't never seen that many t***ies before in my life".
  8. Who's going to MSG & the B1G Tourney

    Aside from all the farmer jokes in the Times, think of Manhattan being overrun with Hicks&Hayseeds celebrating our 1st B1G Tourney title! Reminds me of the '95 Orange Bowl and all the Ham n Eggers dressed in their Key overalls shocked, SHOCKED I say, at all the topless women on the beach...
  9. RE: aforementioned query, think 3 Guard set with Allen, Anketen, Watson - Roby, Tshimanga down low. Has me intrigued, what say you...
  10. How often do you think we'll see Allen & Anketen on the floor at the same time? (slightly OT)
  11. I hope he's spending as much time working on his " J " as he is in the weight room... we really need this kid to be a player.
  12. Breakout player

    I voted Copeland for the duration of his stay, mainly because in all likelihood it will be condensed to 1 1/2 years. I voted Allen for impact this year because we get him from day one, and I can see him being a BIG time scorer (think Joe McRay)
  13. Who Starts?

    Since I'm a glass 1/2 full guy, I'm assuming we'll have Copeland from the get go, so here's my guess as to who trots out on the court 11/16 vs. St. John's: Watson Palmer Turner Tshimanga Copeland I think Allen will move Palmer out of the starting line-up by Conference play, & Roby is a wild card. Some will argue for Gill, I get that, but I'm not quite sold on him yet.
  14. Help Wanted

    Weslyan is looking for a Women's Golf Coach if any of you Linksters wanna throw your hat in the ring...
  15. Who Starts?

    If the defense doesn't make some significant strides, especially given the personnel on the roster, this could be a LONG and maybe final year for Coach Miles here in Lincoln. To quote former Gopher Football Coach Jerry Kill, "We need to get a fire in our Ass".
  16. Help Wanted

    50 K might be the listed salary, but think of all those $100 hand-shakes from rich Alums, free dinners around town, and all the other perks that would accompany such a position.
  17. Patton to Minnesota

    They're building a soccer only stadium in St. Paul near the intersection of University & Snelling for the United. I would imagine Justin Patton will have season tickets...
  18. Patton to Minnesota

    I spent the last 20 years in Mpls. and have watched a load of BAD Wolves basketball.... Not only did they get Butler & Patton on draft night, they've also signed Jeff Teague, Taj Gibson & Jamaal Crawford. They might actually be a trendy pick to make some hay in the play-offs this year.
  19. NU's All Big Ten Team (so far)

    My favorite Husker alley-oop duo of ALL time was Greg Downing & Jerry Shoecraft in the early 80's...
  20. Who Starts?

    I'd expect nothing less Mr. Peterson... BTW if anyone knows, when oh WHEN will there be a ruling on Copeland?
  21. Who Starts?

    No I meant Taylor not Turner, damn cough medicine. Turner Gill though was a hell of a short stop and was drafted by the Cleveland Indians. Probably could have played hoops too ala' Dave Winfield.
  22. NU's All Big Ten Team (so far)

    Sorry Ryan Anderson, loved your game and your moustache, BUT you're the odd man out in my starting 5 since 2000...
  23. NU's All Big Ten Team (so far)

    The three they name are no-brainers, I'll limit the list to 5 and go with Steffon Bradford & Kimani Ffriend as the other 2, what the hell...
  24. NU's All Big Ten Team (so far)

    Just my two cents, but I think Bo Spencer & Dylan Talley are getting a short shrift too...
  25. Ed Chang

    I saw this kid play in person at the State Tournament and was highly impressed. He was an absolute TERROR at the top of a 1-3-1 zone. Evidently the allure of the PAC12 and the West coast was too much for the local rubes to compete with. Is he a "program changer"? No, but he would have been a nice "get". Any guesses when Miles will land his first In State recruit?
