  1. Didn't this happen the last few games of last season? Other than that the reason it didn't happen more was because Jordy wasn't up to speed at the beginning of the year. As Jordy got to a point where he could handle more minutes, Ed was hurt. Then finally toward the end of the year when 1) Morrow was healthier and 2)Jordy had developed, they saw the floor together. I doubt Ed would've been 'misused' if we had a body to play the 5.
  2. I'm not blindcheck so I think you may still be waiting on that persons opinion
  3. I'm not an expert and maybe some of the better basketball minds on here can explain the ramifications of what I'm suggesting. You don't eliminate a charge. Offensive fouls are still called when the offensive player initiates contact on a player in legal guarding position. But what you eliminate is the ability of a player to draw a charge by beating someone to a spot and falling backward. A defender should be forced to make a play on the ball. That's the decision, make a play on the ball and risk getting a foul called on you or give up a layup. In my mind it eliminates a lot of plays where a driver plows in just for the sake of drawing contact. It also gives less incentive for a flop. If the offensive player gets the defender up in the air and draws contact the yes absolutely a foul. But there are way too many plays where a ball handlers main goal is to plow in and create contact but that contact should be earned if a foul is awarded. It used to be that the objective on a drive was to finish. If bodies were in the way then a pretty or creative finish was the goal. Anymore guys create contact and scoring the ball is sometimes an afterthought.
  4. Yes but...how about calling offensive fouls when the on ball defender is in legal guarding position and the ball handler lowers his shoulder and goes through the defender? I like those calls and it's not called enough. Defender is moving in a defensive stance and gets rammed by the ball handler. Offensive foul. But then eliminate the ability of a defender to beat someone to a spot, stop, and draw a charge. The offensive player already has free reign because at any time a guard can just burrow their head and usually get a "reach" call.
  5. That's a good idea. Force a defender to play defense instead of being rewarded for standing in a spot and flopping backward.
  6. This has been hashed through a million times but a summary of what I remember with the recruitment of Agau after he left Louisville. Miles gave him a second chance to come home. Gave him the keys to the palace. Agau made several visits to the basketball offices/practice facility. Agau showed interest but was either taking his sweet ole time or had no legitimate intention whatsoever to come here. Finally, Agau showed up at the practice facility sporting Georgetown gear and Miles had to kick him out. But yes Miles gave him every opportunity to play for Nebraska (the second time around).
  7. Depends on the approach Glynn is taking if he is still pondering staying/going. Or the approach the people around him are taking. Ed and Jacobson got releases, announced their availability, then went shopping for new schools. Watson could "remain a Husker" all the while having someone behind the scenes shop him around to find a good landing spot for him. Happens all the time. When Tarin Smith left, he had his people shopping him around pretty much all of the second half of that season. Hopefully not the case with Watson, but it would be a reason he's telling everyone in the program that he intends to stay.
  8. I agree that I don't think we ever saw the real Anton Gill last year due to never fully getting back up to par following scopes on both knees to clean things up prior to the season. The "IF he recovers from his knee issues" is a big IF IMO. So he adds the torn patellar tendon on top of the issues he wasn't able to make it back fully from last year. That's a major injury, one that most athletes don't make it back to where they were prior. We could speculate that the knees weren't 100% last year and that contributed to the big injury and that fixing that and having the time off to rehab will really get his knees right, but odds that he returns to a level he was never at even last year is asking a lot. Let's hope for the best and we'll see.
  9. One of the articles from from his commitment announcement said all his paperwork would be done in the next couple days. I'm assuming this will all be taken care of tomorrow.
  10. Or one would assume he does.
  11. Could be way off but from the little I know I would give that a better chance than Harriman ending up back on staff at nebraska. It makes a lot of sense looking at it from the outside but personally I'd be very surprised if this happens.
  12. In regards to SE saying something...Sipple on the radio this morning said that media members were told by Eichorst that he would address them about men's basketball after the spring game. He supposedly told them that last week. But yeah, prior to that it was said that he would speak after the final 4.
  13. Yeah I've been a fanatic for a long time. Moving to PBA and "getting good" that one year almost made me feel like I was losing "my team". Hear me out. It's what I always wanted, but PBA opened, "fans" who didn't really know what was going on flooded through the doors, and suddenly it was cool to like the team that had been an unmentionable from basically 1999-2011. National attention, popular new coach, top notch facilities all led to...expectations that were before just a hope for maybe someday. And then we made the tournament. We had the Big Ten coach of the year. National coach of the year. More expectations. It's all a good thing. It's what we always wanted and needed to have here but it doesn't make the task any easier. There was something about going to the Bob because you knew the few thousand that were there understood.
  14. No more transfers for the next 5 minutes. Actually, they are all busy watching the game so probably none for the next 1.5 hours or so. No more transfers until somebody does.
  15. The Eichorst and players meeting happened tonight and went well. For now it seems like Miles is still the coach. I expect Miles to be the coach next year and expect no more transfers. This can all change in a second, however, so how's that for keeping the Internet going?
