  1. Scheduling

    This. We should try to schedule all of the "cupcakes" in the 200s for sure. Absolutely no 300s. But if for whatever reason we struggle to get all teams in the 200s, it should be a D-2 opponent.
  2. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Kind of. This article has some details on that and some speculation on what happens. http://kwsn.com/news/articles/2018/mar/21/zimmer-daum-likely-to-return-to-sdsu-but-dont-rule-out-nba/
  3. Greatest Upset in the history

    D'oh, great catch. I was looking at results through the 2016-2017 season. And another one experiences sweet victory before us... the play-in games are really dumb with how they mess up these kinds of stats, though.
  4. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    I've heard from multiple people that he's likely going to Creighton, frustratingly.
  5. Creighton?

    What is wrong with Wagner? Check this out...
  6. 2018 Husker Baseball

    Wow. I bought all-session passes to the Big Ten Tournament when tickets went on sale a little while back. Is Nebraska even going to qualify???
  7. Greatest Upset in the history

    Here are the top few Eastern Kentucky 0-8 Belmont 0-7 Boise State 0-7 Louisiana-Monroe 0-7 Nebraska 0-7 Texas Southern 0-7
  8. Greatest Upset in the history

    I looked up recently to see if they were any schools with more regular season wins as a program with no NCAA tournament wins. I honestly figured we would be #1 since we have had relatively few losing seasons in our history. Nope - Akron is #50 all-time with 1,577 wins and is 0-4 in the NCAA tournament. We've got 1,476 wins.
  9. I mean, no surprise there, and we shouldn't feel bad about that. This is pretty objectively the least important game of the season. All of the prior games had larger goals still in front of us.
  10. USC Coach nails it

    Yeah, and USC being left out may have been the worst choice made by the committee. They should have been in. And I believe that if Nebraska won those two games, at 24-8, we would have been in.
  11. USC Coach nails it

    I'm fairly sure we would have been in if we would have beat Penn State and Illinois. Our RPI would have been in the mid-30s. Quad 1 wins still wouldn't have been there, but that's just one aspect. It just became important to Nebraska because most of our other metrics were in the 50s.
  12. Selection Show, who to watch for

    Yeah, my bad on Marist. That UCF loss hurt.
  13. Selection Show, who to watch for

    No, it doesn't take crystal balls. Delaware St, Marist, and Stetson were all in the 300s on KenPom last year. They should not have been on our schedule.
  14. Selection Show, who to watch for

    I could up-vote this but that wouldn't be enough. Everyone should read this again. In today's world of RPI still being relied upon heavily, it is bordering on a fireable offense to not be thinking of the RPI when scheduling. OK, I exaggerate a little... but not really. It should be part of coaching 101 if you have goals of making the NCAA tournament.
  15. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    Not a single one of those wins was against the top 100. The road/neutral comparisons are not good for us.
