    Rivalry

    Agreed, let Goldy and the Hawkeyes fight it out over a little Pig trophy named after a Shopping Mall. Cultivating a rivalry with Iowa in ANY sport diminishes our Brand...

    Bigger impact in 18-19?

    There's minutes to be had at the back-up PG spot, not so much for the Wing players. Someone needs to step up and separate from the crowd, hopefully it's Harris. I got a hunch Thor will have a nice year too.
  3. Looks like tickets go on sale 9/7/18 and they still haven't announced a start time. I would guess mid-afternoon... I wonder if the AD and Mike " I'm 40 I'm a Man" Gundy will ride up together?

    New numbers

    #24 was Kobe's number in high school @ Lower Marion. Both that & #8 hang in the rafters of the Staple Center.

    Most Under-rated Recruit

    Id say Andrew Drevo, but he was a walk on. How bout "the Toaster" Eric Johnson?

    Rivalry

    Fer sure Creighton, but there was a time when Kansas would have taken the top spot when both of us fielded winning squads. On the other end, Colorado, when we would "battle it out" for that last spot in the Big 8...

    Hmmmm.

    You are correct, they have an old Surry (sp?) with a life size cut out of Johnny Carson riding in it. Actually, for a County museum it is rather interesting, and Ive certainly seen worse.

    NBA Playoffs

    On a lighter and more positive note, I renewed my season tickets yesterday, and could give a fat frog's a** where LeBron ends up (as long as it's not the Lakers) .
  9. I wasn't just spouting off when I suggested a Bus/caravan to Sioux Falls. Is this something other Board members might be interested in? I think it would be an absolute hoot.

    Well, speaking for the "Get off my Lawn" crowd, trying to stack a team is hardly anything new. The Sixers tried to do it in the late 70's bringing in World B Free & George McGinnis to play with Dr. J, Doug Collins, Harvey Catchings etc. It is remarkable LeBron has played in 8 straight Finals, but his teams were never pushed by anyone else in the East. My interest in the league is waning as well, just not enuff good teams, and I've ALWAYS preferred the College game.

    I remember when KD played his one year at Texas, they came in here and beat us by a point. Sons- a- bitches...

    Huskers in the Pros Thread

    So much for the road Reds and the home Whites, I'm not sure your average Husker ham-n-egger is ready for a leopard print uniform. Godspeed to ya Brandon, hope your back on the court soon!

    LOVE that Ubel kid, he was on the team that beat the Golden Gophers in the last ever game played at the Devaney...

    I hope you're right, he'd be a perfect fit with Harden and Paul. ANYWHERE but Los Angeles...

    I think McGee is still the leading scorer in Wolverine history.

    I pray to God there isn't a "Decision II" on ESPN where James brags about winning 8 Titles when he's won a whopping 3 and lost 6.

    I believe Sampson was the only player to win POY honors 4 times in College.

    Hmmmm.

    Or Belvadere, home of the Thayer County museum...

    Hmmmm.

    Superior was a class B "Powerhouse" when I graduated, now they play 8 man Football. And oh BTW, the Boys have NEVER made the State Basketball tournament. I wanted to run out on that Devaney court just once...
  20. Handy Johnson

    Hmmmm.

    I'm curious to know who those other schools might have been, sure there will be lots of rumors/innuendo floating about the inter web. AND how in the hell did Hebron get the Cattleman's Ball and not Superior?

    You've probably heard this story, but when Alcindor was a freshman ( which were ineligible then) he and his classmates scrimmaged the Varsity, who were defending National Champs, and beat 'em.

    Well, I'll weigh in. There has been only one 6'9" Point Guard in the history of the League and his name is Earvin Johnson. He also led his team in rebounding twice from the guard position, when his center was, oh BTW Kareem Abduhl Jabaar. He was a better passer than either James or Jordan, and I wouldn't get too haughty about how many rings LeBron might get before he's done. He hasn't even caught Jamaal Wilkes yet...

    NBA Playoffs

    Agreed, as should Elgin Baylor and Jerry West. Here's some Finals trivia for you. West was the only player to win the the Finals MVP award playing for the LOSING team averaging 44 points a game in 1969.

    All-time 5, I'll go with 3 Lakers: Magic, Kobe, Jabaar then Jordan & James.

    I'd say Kareem because he played in an era when there were alot of great big men. Russell was never really "pushed",same with Mikan.
