  1. I'm seeing a common theme: Opposing coach at half "hit the #$@!&#$ offensive boards!" Opposing team in the second half hits the #$@!&#$ offensive boards. I guess it's just the way it's going to be with this group but they have been able to overcome it so far. Like many have said, a win is a win!
  2. I really wish we would have gone to the 1-3-1 midway through the second half.
  3. Yeah, I think I'd have to go back this far ...

    6 guys from Nebraska or having Nebraska ties including 5 of 6 top scorers.
  4. Roby was 0-4 on dunks against Illinois

    I like 2 points much better than a missed dunk.
  5. Starting lineup

    Two points: 1. It's not who starts the game, but who is in there at the finish that is important. 2. I don't think offense is the issue in the decision. (I do agree that Jordy is struggling big time)
  6. uneblinstu's postgame chatter: Vol: 10; ed: 13 - UTSA

    It's funny, but sometimes when a player is sick they change their focus and just play and have big games. Not sure why, but it seems to happen a lot.
  7. Anton Gill

    Jon Rothstein‏Verified account @JonRothstein 23 minutes ago Nebraska's Anton Gill (knee) is expected to be fully cleared for all basketball activities in 7-10 days, per Tim Miles.
  8. Bobby Jackson

    That does ring a bell
  9. Bobby Jackson

    What was the reason for the walk out? The only thing I heard was verbal abuse at practice. (which pretty much every coach back then was into) If memory serves me correct (which it often does not, just ask my wife) Lue and Garner went to practice and were not part of the walk out. To some that showed a division on the team but I believe it was the first year at NU for both of them.
  10. The offense looked great. We moved the ball, played loose and confident and Watson was outstanding. The defense was horrible mostly because our bigs were in foul trouble. What was the deal with those two turnovers late in the game? Pull the ball out and run some clock.
  11. 1. I think the announcers went a full 8 minutes in the first half without mentioning one Nebraska player by name. (started to piss me off) 2. How can you be a 4-5 star player and not be able to shoot the basketball? A basic skill for a basketball player. (began to get more pissed off) 3. I sat there and was dumbfounded by the turnovers, lack of intensity, lack of on ball defense, lack of cohesiveness on offense, the running of the mouth, the cockiness of St Johns, lack of rebounding and the shooting performance by NU. (really, really, really pissed off) 4. Went to bed and slept if off. 5. Woke up, pissed off.
  12. Nick Fuller is Graduate Transferring

    Looks like a 6th man. 19 minutes off the bench Monday.
  13. Nick Fuller is Graduate Transferring

    USD also has a couple former Nebraska high school prep players starting for them. Tristan Simpson from Lincoln North Star and Tyler Hagedorn from Norfolk.
  14. Past/Future Opponents First Games

    They were credited with a couple steals though.
  15. Northwood Pregame notes

    A red shirt would have helped Wes Wilkinson as well.
  16. Who is the true baseball fan? Completely O.T.

    Or just win it all
  17. Closed Scrimmage

    Remember the ACT score back in the day would be a much higher score than the ACT today. At least that is what I tell myself.
  18. Who is the true baseball fan? Completely O.T.

    Big baseball fan but embarrassed to say I did not last for the end of the game. Start the game earlier, limit trips to the mound, don't let the batter call timeout when the pitcher is set and cut back on the amount of commercials.
  19. Texas Tech 74 Mississippi State 47 in a scrimmage.
  20. I think that is one of the toughest things for a coach to do. (turn the corner and have that killer instinct to finish off teams) Experience is the key, the problem is you have to do it a few times to experience it. I think it starts with a tough, smart, talented point guard with leadership skills. I think we have one of those.
  21. I think Miles was sending a message as well, that the freshmen need to work on some things before they are going to see the floor. We have more depth this year, so we can demand more from everyone. This is really the way it is suppose to be. If Allen and the others are the players we think they will be, they will respond.
  22. Xavier Johnson is N

    Robin Washut Robin Washut @RobinWashut #Nebrasketball picked up its second 2018 commitment on Monday by landing point guard @TheXavierJ0
  23. Nebraska v Georgetown

    Seems like he tried a version of it. I was thinking when he did that we would back door teams to death. I can't hardly remember scoring off a back door cut!
  24. Tim Miles Presser 10/2/2017

    I'm guessing Taylor is going to see a lot more playing time than what many think. He started last year, is a physical player who can defend and there is just something about a guy who's team always wins in pick up games or scrimmages.
  25. This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    I mentioned this in the other thread (which could be combined with this one) that the FBI is now investigating NIKE.
