  1. 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.
  2. Next Years Starting 5

    I was hoping Moses Abraham would fill that void, but that did not work out at all. That is why I am tempering my excitement about this year's team. I had really high hopes for that team as I thought we did have a well rounded roster and we would roll that year. I really hope this year we play to our potential and get a few breaks along the way.
  3. Next Years Starting 5

    Kind of funny in that a few months ago we were wondering if we would have enough players to fill out our roster for the coming season.
  4. Holt hired

    Would have been perfect is his name was Steve!
  5. Countdown to College Basketball

    To creative for the kick in the balls culture for today's humor I guess.
  6. Countdown to College Basketball

    Man, that was a great show. How did it only last three seasons?
  7. OT: Omaha Metro Youth Basketball

    I'm not really sure what all options you have in Omaha but I don't think you need to spend hundreds of dollars for a 9 year old to play ball. YMCA might offer a cheaper way for your son to get some games in but the simple fundamentals can be worked on at the park or driveway if you have some time to work with him. There is plenty of time to get involved in club or AAU ball down the line. The main thing at his age is to make sure he is having fun learning the game.
  8. The Isaac Copeland watch

    One thing Tim Miles confirm is that there is no set deadline for NCAA to rule on Copeland’s waiver. Could be decided after season starts. (Washut tweet)
  9. This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    The Chucks were more of a fashion piece by that time. Nike was just becoming a name but converse was still king.
  10. This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    Might be dating myself a bit, but it was all Converse for me.
  11. Made Top 100

    Classic! I always liked this one: Norm!!! How is life treating you? Like it caught me in bed with his wife!
  12. The Isaac Copeland watch

    Copeland should have gone to Creighton. The NCAA would let him play immediately and probably give him an extra year or two as a bonus!
  13. My Head Hurts...

    What drives me nuts is when the OWH will write about apathy for the basketball program. I would hope they realize they control a lot of that. I wonder what it would be like if they wrote the same number of articles and stories and player profiles and so on for the basketball team as the football team.
  14. My Head Hurts...

    OWH Husker Camp Chatter: "Good job!" -Assistant Scott Booker to A Williams and A Anderson as they combined in their coverage of a receiver. What incitful journalism! Followed up by another fantastic coaching blurb "Let's go blackshirts" after a run down of how coach Diaco changed from wearing sweats to shorts. Advil works for me Handy!
  15. Thomas Allen is N

    I always thought the up and under (not the reverse layup that many announcer call an up and under) was the best post move. Especially for under sized post players. Takes good footwork but if perfected can be very tough to stop and often can draw the foul.
  16. Offseason Potpourri

    I was wondering when the annual Husker basketball team chemistry will be better this year article would come out. Maybe this will be the season in which everything clicks.
  17. The Husker baseball team took in their share of Big 10 awards this year: Coach of the Year: Darin Erstad 1st team: Jake Meyers and Scott Schreiber 3rd team: Angelo Altavilla and Jake Hohensee Freshman team: Luke Roskam Sportsmanship Award: Ben Miller Hope they stay hot the rest of the year. Really happy for Erstad who seemed to be taking some heat recently.
  18. Coach Mac to Ohio State?

    Robin Washut Retweeted Jeff Goodman @GoodmanESPN Ohio State has offered job to Creighton’s Greg McDermott, source told ESPN. Two sides met tonight.
  19. Jacobson Gone?

    I agree, every team needs guys like MJ to fill a role. Turns out though he was not that type of player because he did not want to be that type of role player.
  20. Offseason Potpourri

    Wright State grad transfer Mark Alstork has committed to Illinois, he announced. Immediately eligible.
  21. Offseason Potpourri

    Michigan keeps Mo Wagner, but loses D.J. Wilson to the NBA Draft
  22. Tyronn Lue is the new Head Coach of the Cavs

    Oscar Robertson?
  23. OT Good haul for Husker baseball team

    I was about to say that having to worry about players leaving so much in baseball would drive me nuts as a coach but I guess college hoops is getting to be just as bad. Meyers has really developed into a very good pitcher and hitter. Will he get drafted as a position player or pitcher?
  24. Robin Washut Retweeted Samuel McKewon Something that’s rarely talked about when discussing the challenges that came with building project he took over. Robin Washut added, Samuel McKewon @swmckewonOWH Kudos to Nebraska hoops coach Tim Miles, who has brought his team's multi-year APR up to 985. When he took over it was 935.
  25. Hello? It's too quiet in here

    You hit the nail on the head. The players union in MLB is way to strong.
