  1. Seeding for the B1G is a JOKE! 4-Purdue (about right) 5-Minnesota (should have been a 6 or 7) 6-Maryland (about right) 7-Michigan (should have been a 6) 8-Northwestern (about right) 8-Wisconsin (should've been a 4 or 5, or at worst, 6) 9-Michigan State (should have been higher than Northwestern due to playing tougher non-conference schedule)
  2. HuskerFever, Thank you very much for taking the time to run this fun contest. It is something I look forward to on a yearly basis.
  3. Morrow is not transferring. Write it in cement.
  4. Not a chance
  5. Why would Palmer leave?
  6. When I was five my dad took my to my first Nebrasketball Game n February 1989 against #14 Kansas, a game which the Huskers would win. My dad taught me the basics of the game. From that moment on, I was a die-hard Nebrasketball fan. There are many memorable players I've seen play in my lifetime. I have vague memories of Dapreis Owens, Rich King, Beau Reid, and Bruce Chubick. I enjoyed watching guys like Eric Piatkowski, Tony Farmer, Derrick Chandler, Mikki Moore, Venson Hamilton, Larry Florence, Cookie Belcher, Steffon Bradford, Brian Conklin, Kimani Ffriend, Ryan Anderson, Lance Jeter, Dylan Talley, Benny Parker, Shavon Shields, and Terran Petteway play. In my 33+ years, my favorite players have been Erick Strickland, Aleks Maric, Tyronn Lue, and Terrance Badgett. It's time to add Tai Webster to this list. I've been a huge fan of Tai since he committed to Nebraska. As we all know, he came in with very high expectations. Tai was very inconsistent his freshman and sophomore seasons, however his junior season was respectful. Tai's senior season has been one of the best I can recall. 15.5 ppg, 5.2 boards, and 4.0 assists per game, while playing just under 35 minutes a game. Yes he's missed his fair share of free throws and commits far too many turnovers, but to me, there is something very special about Tai. Scored in double figures in has last 30 games, became just the fourth player in school history to have 500 points and 100 assists in the same season, and will likely finish his Husker career in the top-25 career scoring list. A glance at his collegiate stats shows Tai has improved in FG%, 3P%, FT%, and scoring in each of his four seasons. Stats aside, Tai brings something else to team. Heart. When things were not going well, he could have left Nebraska and played overseas. He stayed, worked hard in the weight-room and became a well-respected leader. His smile and personality are infectious. He loves interacting with Husker fans and is often seen posing for pics with kids. With Indiana defeating Ohio State earlier today, a Husker victory Sunday night against Michigan gives up the 10th seed. That being said, Husker fans need to come out to PBA tommorrow and thank Tai Webster for being a class act on and off the court. Thanks Tai.
  7. Tim Miles is NOT getting fired after this season. ETCH IT IN STONE!
  8. Nebraska 77 Penn State 72 1 win Penn State has lost 11 of 14 (5 in a row). Two teams in the same boat (sinking)
  9. Awful body language within the first five minutes.

  11. Beat Michigan: 10th seed vs. Iowa on Thursday Lose to Michigan: 12th seed vs. Penn State on Wednesday
  12. If Ohio State loses at home to Indiana (Sat morning, 11am) and Nebraska defeats Michigan (Sun evening), both would finish 7-11 in the conference. Tie-breaker 1: Head-to-head: Nebraska 1-1 vs. Ohio State Tie-breaker 2: Each team's record vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final regular season standings (likely Purdue) Nebraska: 1-0 vs. Purdue Ohio State: 0-1 vs. Purdue Thus, a Nebraska win paired with a Ohio State loss would give the Huskers the 10th seed (via tie-breakers). Since Ohio State plays Saturday Morning, we will know by early Saturday afternoon if the 10th seed is a possibility.
  13. I don't think we rest the guys on Saturday. Need to send Tai out a winner on Senior Night
  14. Nebraska 80 Michigan 79 2
  15. Team looked gassed. Illinois came out very aggressive defensively. A little concerned about Watson. Only six shot attempts in 33 minutes. Definitely did not look like himself. Thought Ed and Evan played well. Evan has been a surprise. Jordy struggled defensively and had three costly turnovers early on. Tai was Tai. Pretty much guaranteed 15-20 points a game. But he needs help. Need three scorers a game. Last night we might of have 1.5. On to Minnesota
  16. Minnesota 84 Nebraska 68
  17. Nebraska 74 Illinois 70
  18. I predicted the Huskers to go 2-2 to close out the regular season. Ended up with the 8th seed and at match-up with Indiana for the right to play Purdue
  19. Michigan State 73 Nebraska 69 Huskers must defend the three ball. Michigan State was 11/17 (64.7%) against the Huskers in Lincoln on February 2nd.
  20. Cannot say enough about Nick Fuller. His eleven minutes were huge for the Huskers. Played very well defensively. Forcing forcing a jump ball on the Buckeyes inbound with 21 seconds left to give the Huskers the possession was big and obviously set it up for Glynn to close it out with an incredible three-point play. So happy to see Glynn seal the victory as I know his slip at home against the Buckeyes really got to him. The sky is the limit with Glynn and I honestly feel he is the best PG we've had since Lue.
  21. Ohio State 74 Nebraska 66
  22. Nebraska 80 Penn State 71 6 players
  23. According to the rules.... "On occasion, a student-athlete may have competed and used up a year of eligibility, but because of an incapacitating injury/illness, they may be granted a hardship waiver and receive an additional year of eligibility. In order for this to happen, the following criteria must be satisfied: 1. The injury/illness is season ending; 2. The injury/illness occurs prior to the completion of the first half of the season; and 3. The injury/illness occurs when the student-athlete has not participated in more than the greater of three contests/dates of completion or 30% of the team's scheduled contests/dates of competition during the team's traditional season." Gill: Played in 12 games (12/23 =52.1%) Morrow: Played in 16 games (16/23=69.5%) Remaining schedule: 7 regular season games and at least 1 conference tournament game. Gill obviously won't return. Morrow's status in question Gill: 12/31=38.7% Morrow: 16/31=51.6%
