    More NBA Summer League action for Tai this year, possibly?
  2. Scheduling

    God, please yes Marquette!
  3. Contract Extensions

    Interesting tweet just in (h/t to @swmckewon)
  4. Contract Extensions

    @Norm Peterson I agree. Whether or not the need to have contracts extend 4 years out is a ploy by "agents" to take advantage of the poor $125 million athletics empire and put them into near bankruptcy because a hoops coach will maybe make an extra $2 million when he's given the axe, and whether or not these poor money-strapped AD's should band together and make a stand against the dirty money grubbing "agents" is an argument in and of itself. However...why should the NU AD be the one to go out on their own and make a stand against this needless money wasting, essentially tying their coaches' hands behind his back while the rest of the colleges seemingly have no problem with removing as many obstacles as possible to the running of an efficient and professional organization? I say, screw that. Let someone else take a stand for their principles, I want to win. If that means I need to extend my coach to 4 years, then do it. If it takes gold plated toilets in the practice facility, then gold plate those MF'ers!!! But don't try to tell me that taking away advantages, or better yet, building in extra disadvantages is beneficial or productive in anything. That I just need to do better. That's pure and utter BS.

    @Blindcheck is gonna die on this hill come hell or high water, @hskr4life I hope you've prepared for the long haul here!
  7. Scheduling

    Yep, we'll have 4 games as part of the CBE Classic. Two mid-majors at home and two games in KC. We will have ACC/B1G challenge and Creighton game for sure, Probably will participate in the Gavitt Games as well I'd imagine. So, that puts us at 7 games non-con. With the 20 game conference slate we'll be looking at I guess 4 more non-con games. Those will probably be the cupcake-y Gardner-Webb types during finals and semester break I'd imagine.
  8. 2018 Red-White spring game

    I'd say there's a decent chance of it, yes.
  9. 2018 Red-White spring game

    So...the Martinez kid...
  10. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    You could put it in any one of these and it would be good I'd imagine: http://huskerhoopscentral.com/search/?q=roby&type=forums_topic&nodes=4&sortby=newest&search_in=titles Or maybe one of these threads would work: http://huskerhoopscentral.com/search/?&q=huskers in the pros&type=forums_topic&nodes=4&search_in=titles&sortby=newest Anywho...got a link? (oh, and thanks)

  12. Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    I would kill to develop a hoops pedigree like Oklahoma's. In the modern era of the NCAA tournament they have nearly as many Elite Eight appearances as we have trips to the dance all time. Without doing a whole lot of digging I would say they're probably second to only Kansas in the Big 12 (current or former) in terms of hoops success. And OU ain't as far behind KU as one might think...
  13. Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    I'm not sure I agree with your premise. Great CEO's come in a very wide range of personalities, some are more iconic than others. Take Nike for example. There is no bigger brand in the world than them and I'm sure most semi-knowledgeable people would be able to recognize Phil Knight as their CEO. Other examples come straight to mind here too, like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates when they headed Apple and Microsoft. Here are a few other companies that I bet most people can think of their CEO right off the top of their head: Facebook Amazon Tesla/SpaceX On the other hand there are huge companies that very few could name the CEO's without a google search: Netflix GE Verizon But in every instance they all have the same thing in common. They are among the worlds most recognizable brands. Some are bigger than their CEO's, others not so much. Point being, I'm not sure that one way is more "ideal" than another.
  14. Next Assistant Coach

    I wonder if there's any possibility we could get Ali to Burno Niko and come back to Nebraska as a full time assistant...Of course it won't happen but I'm just spitballin' here.
  15. Let me get this straight...

    One thing I'll say @Norm Peterson that would be a mitigating factor in the recruiting bind this puts us in is there are very few B1G roster spots to go around, and that still holds value and the Huskers have 15 of those spots. Of the thousands of guys out there with D1 hoops aspirations only a relative few are B1G, SEC, ACC etc. We'll still get dudes. They may or may not be *dudes* though...
