  1. WNIT vs. The Dance

    The tourney. Big help in 2019 recruiting.
  2. Gotta be able to get 6-8 points per game with a guard just taking somebody off the dribble or gutting a defense down the middle of the lane. It’s really been an issue all year, but Nebraska’s been able to play around it through good scouting reports and outcoaching/playing the opponent. They’re still working on developing the skill of turning the corner or slicing up a D off the dribble. There’s no Moore or T or Theriot on this roster (yet) who just naturally makes those plays over and over, game after game. Which is why they talk about D so much. They can control it, they have good athletes and an elite shot blocker. They’re a tough nut to crack on D.
  3. That former player just gets way too much blame from fans. And she's playing quite well for her new team (Which, I assure you, doesn't have a bunch of malcontents in the program.)
  4. Would you rather

    As someone who voted last year, I'll say this: The poll doesn't move much at the bottom, and once you get in the top 15 or so, you may stay in the top 25 many weeks beyond what you should. The 2014-2015 team stayed ranked almost all of the season, even well after Theriot went down. It's not the primary beat for many of us. Which is why I did it the one year and decided not to do it again.
  5. Time to eat a little crow

    There weren't many reasons for Collier. Not among hard-core Husker fans. They didn't like him.
  6. The success of this team is frankly a lot bigger than that. Cain and Kissinger are addition by addition. 21 points and 11 rebounds per game don't just come out of thin air.
  7. Leigha Brown is 'N'

    Brown is real good. Tough. Sam Ostarello with a jump shot. How's that?
  8. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    The former is twice the player of the latter in their respective true sophomore seasons.
  9. Creighton - Nebraska

    Hannah's going to have to shoot more. Eliely (just off an injury) and Cincore (just in general) can't take 7 shots each and Whitish only take 10.
  10. Prolly the Thanksgiving tourney for both. Maybe a lil later.
  11. Row6Seat10 Musings

    Yes she does. Strong hands. Rebounds stay grabbed.
  12. It'll improve in part because the offense gets better. If Nebraska's not turning the ball over 17 times per game, creating easy scoring opps for the opponents, it'll help.
  13. Bill Moos named next NU athletic director

    Perhaps I'm wrong but I think Miles will benefit greatly - perhaps most - by Moos' hiring. Miles will work well with an AD who's outgoing and extroverted and relationship oriented. Eichorst struggled there, and Miles - unlike Bo - made his share of good faith efforts toward Eichorst. This'll sound odd, but you know what could really use a good men's basketball season? Nebraska football. Some other sport at Nebraska needs to take the pressure off in the spring/summer. Husker football, regardless of the coach, could use a little less opinionating and talk radio coverage in the offseason. Of course Husker football will always be No. 1, but it wouldn't hurt if the No. 2 story in March was a NCAA berth/NIT run vs, you know, junior day in recruiting.
  14. Ed Chang

    Miles thought it was worth recruiting at Colorado State.
  15. Ed Chang

    He'll be better than Agau. He'll play more years than Patton, but Patton going in the 1st round would have paid some major recruiting dividends. The NBA is what these kids care about. I'd take Taz - Khyri Thomas - over all 3.
