    18-19 depth

    The professional writers who provide us with their observations can confirm, but it is my understanding that the roster members are present and accounted for. I just saw a short video on twitter, and one of our players was sporting glasses/goggles. Not sure who; he didn't appear to be a returnee.

    Rivalry

    I thought I would attempt to start a new topic in order to generate some off-season banter. Who is our current number one rival in basketball? Why? Who historically would you consider our most intense basketball rivalry, and why? Also, do you believe that opponent thought we were their number one rival? Here is my initial opinion, and I am hoping someone(s) can otherise connect me. We currently, and historically have not had a true basketball rivalry. While in the Big XII, we may look at KU, KSU or Missouri, but those three teams likely would not have considered Nebraska as a rivalry game. I guess I could consider Iowa State, but it seems to me that their true rivalry game is Iowa. Is it our lack of history that sort of makes me think that we really have never had a true heated rival in basketball? Colorado once declared Nebraska as their football rival, and many Nebraska fans scoffed at the declaration, at least in part because they were not all that good when the proclamation was made. Regardless, I through this open for discussion...or not.

    Noah, we all know you are a terrific Husker fan (I still miss seeing the hard hat and dancing); but I forget who you cheered for when Northwestern and Nebraska played during your grad school days?

    I believe multiple people have indicated Heiman was redshirting including Heiman. So it will more shocking if he doesn't. It seems players are now saving their redshirts. They can then leverage that redshirt year if/when they transfer. It is proving to be effective about 600 to 800 times per year over that past few years.

    The Hornets are sort of in Anton's back yard, so hopefully this is more than a courtesy try-out.

    Football redshirt and transfer rules

    This topic is also ongoing on the 2018-2019 thread. I will repeat what I said there, these changes are very adventageous for the Huskers.

    Heiman is redshirting.

    Bigger impact in 18-19?

    When I read the heading, I thought the question would relate to Glynn, Isaiah, Isaac, Thomas, James or Jordy. I think that would be the follow up question. It could be both positive or negative impact as well. Expectations will be high for each, and it will be important for each of them to meet or exceed those expectations.

    Bigger impact in 18-19?

    I believe Amir will have to play himself out of minutes. In mind, all others are working to gain playing tme.

    Nebraska Football 2018-2019

    Startling - significant - great for the student athletes - great for Nebraska. One reason this is great for the Huskers is because of our unmatched walk-on program. Most programs leverage their redshirts for their scout teams. Nebraska did/does as well. However, with the change in the redshirt rule, we can now include potential redshirts in game prep, while still having plenty of players working on the scout team.

    What to do with Miles contract?

    Haha. I do hope that Coach Miles and the staff/team have clear expectations. Since our graduation rate is fine and the players seem to be good citizans, and the arena is selling out, what does that leave to our imagination? NCAA Tournament wins or bust?

    18-19 depth

    I believe some of those minutes will be absorbed by James. He mainly played the wing last year but he will split time between the 2 and 3 this season. So between the PG and the 2 we have 80 minutes. I could see the distribution looking something like this: Glynn 28 minutes Thomas 22 minutes James 10 minutes To be earned 20 minutes There seems to be three or four viable candidates who can absorb/flourish with those minutes. This off-season will help tell that story.

    Creighton Cobra Kai

    Back in the successful Née years, we had a few of those hard a**, in your face type of players that our opponents loved to hate. First and foremost was likely Beau Reid. In fact, almost every Big 8 team had at least one.

    New numbers

    I am unable to attach the tweet, but numbers have been assigned. Biggest news is that James Palmer will now be "0"

    New numbers

    I was able to do so with my laptop but struggle with my tablet. I will have to give it another try. Thanks swan.

    Rivalry

    So, we are in agreement that Creighton is not the primary basketball rival for Nebraska. Goodness it is so confusing; you have Creighton University, Creighton Prep and the Creighton NE Bulldogs. I sort of like one of those three schools.

    Most Under-rated Recruit

    I'm unsure how under the radar Shavon was. His dad was a Husker legacy. He was a low end 3 star recruit, yet was one of top recruits out of the Kansas City area. The only KC player with a higher reputation was his senior year house-mate, Willie Cauley-Stein, who went on to Kentucky, etc. That said, his performance at Nebraska still exceeded expectations.

    Most Under-rated Recruit

    Can't really disagree with either player.

    Most Under-rated Recruit

    The most recent is likely James Palmer. Before the season he was sort of an after thought to many. The buzz started to grow, but wasn't until well after the start of the season before people started to say "dang - he is good." Before that it may have been TP.

    Rivalry

    It is hard for me to accept a team as a rival that is not a member of our conference. I am also not convince the vast majority of the two fan bases hate each other. Perhaps a fraction of each fan base does. But then again, I may be totally off base.

    NBA Playoffs

    I am not a fan of the NBA. The game is more of a brawl and yet the game appears too easy. I know the game is as popular as ever, especially on the East Coast, but if I were in charge of the NBA game, I would raise the basket, remove the lane and slightly increase the size of the ball.

    NBA Playoffs

    True, but explain to me how they got the two best players from a San Francisco Don team that won 60 straight games and two national championships? There were a lot of fans that thought there was some underhanded, no good stuff occurring. But the point remains, it is easy to cast aspersions about what occurs and how it happened. You can also blame players wo move about due to free agency or those that demand to be traded or refuse to sign; but that has been going on forever...it may be in different forms, but nonetheless less, it has been occurring.
