  1. Poor guys don't even realize what they have coming.
  2. I sure hope not.
  3. If he can get his feet right, Morrow is a guy who legitimately has the potential to be at an elite program, high level starter, consistent double double guy, with the occasional 20 and 10 type of game. This guy looked like an All Big Ten caliber guy for much of November and December. I have very little doubt that he is going to blow up at his next school and we are going really really regret that he got away. In Jacobson I see a guy that showed barely any improvement from freshman to sophomore, other than putting on some mass. In fact he regressed offensively. Yes he plays hard. As he should. I don't hold him on some Tyler Hansboro level of hustle, because he's just not that type of guy. Nothing unusual in terms of effort. Absolutely not a tone setter type, dogfight, "oh shit we are in for a battle tonight" type guy like Benny Parker or even Morrow. And that's what you need to be if you are limited in so many areas like he is. Unathletic. Plays much smaller than his frame, specifically on offense. Mediocre to awful at scoring from every spot on a basketball court. Don't care how pretty his shot looks - it doesn't go in. We talk about expectations. If THIS is the guy that is starting for us and THIS is the guy that people get the most worked up about leaving, I don't know what else to say. Your expectations are much lower than mine.
  4. Absolutely agree on Ed. Jacobson, no. He is a guy who is, IMO, a quality player at a Low Major or D-2 institution. Not even close to the realm of guys you can have playing major minutes on a legit Big Ten team let alone starting. If he would have been the first of the group to transfer I would have gotten a hearty laugh out of it, and would have been indifferent. At this point it's just frustrating because he can breathe, walk, and is 6-8.
  5. We are the only fanbase that can turn the news of a backup player transferring, into an argument about football.
  6. Be careful about suggesting the extrapolation of stats to 40 minutes, may get you in trouble with some folks around here! But yes his per/40 stats and percentages are pretty much worse across the board compared to last year. Fran said on the broadcast (paraphrasing, had it on in the background this morning when doing some stuff around the house so may not have caught all of it) that he thought D-League or overseas for White. Thought at best maybe he catches on with some type of 3-point specialist role on team, but lack of quickness and ball handling skills will hurt him.
  7. To add, even the fact that we have side and endcourt areas with 10-15 feet between the first row of non-courtside seats for herds of people to even use is unacceptable. Again, NBA analogy. Watch any NBA venue and you will notice voids like that don't exist - they actually put (gasp) ROWS OF SEATS in those huge areas as opposed to using them as expressways for losers to leave early. If anybody with a brain was configuring Nebraska's seating alignment, they would not be leaving such valuable real estate void.
  8. I agree with both sides. Overall crowd is good given the product on the court. But the exiting early crowd needs to be politely encouraged to go UP instead of down. Put an announcement on the screen, have the PA guy repeat it. Not when we are down 20 with 8 minutes to go but maybe during a break early second half of every game before they toss shirts or something, until it sticks. Other easy option is, nobody can set foot on the arena floor unless they are student section or courtside. Go to any NBA game - you aren't allowed to just come down from row 20 and mill around all the way down to the court level - they have people or a wall blocking the path. This type of stuff would fall under Boehm's jurisdiction. He is tone deaf so wouldn't be surprised if nothing ever changes.
  9. Let's go get him. Has flaws but proven winner. Buy low.
  10. Steals was also equal per 40 minutes between freshman and soph years at 1.2. At least be accurate in your attempts to correct somebody. http://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/michael-jacobson-1.html Per 40 minute tab. You're welcome!
  11. Less scoring per 40, was in there. Less blocks per 40, was in there. Averaged .7 more assists and .9 more rebounds per 40 than he did as a freshman. You're right he is crushing it in the games too. Huge improvement from year 1 to year 2.
  12. Yep, I'm just not entirely sure exactly what it is. Plays hard. Give him a E for effort I guess.
  13. Less per 40 minute totals in points and blocks compared to freshman season. More turnovers per 40. Less FT attempts. Worse in 2pt fg %. Worse in 3pt fg %. Worse in FT % by 7%. I don't like to dog on individual players...but even calling him a role player might be an enormous compliment given how poorly he performed any type of consistent role in games this season. He's got to be crushing it in practice or in the meeting rooms.
  14. I tend to agree with you Norm - I do think they took a beating psychologically as the year went on. Maybe the physical talent is there more than I'm giving credit, but Miles and his staff have never found a way to consistently synchronize/maximize the talent and confidence of his teams and individual players.
  15. Oddly enough I think as a whole their numbers/play were a lot better against that tough non-con schedule than they were in conference
