  1. It is possible to be disappointed and dissatisfied with the outcome of a game while at the same time be able to see some positives. That's what every coach does with the game tape. You find the things that need cleaned up and reinforce the positive things their team accomplished.
  2. The reality is Miles is now 0-6 but he was not the reason for this one. We struggled to score in the second half. The times we got our best look at shots and actually scored was after timeouts. He did a very good job with the whiteboard today. Let's say Jordy can make layups or say there are only two egregious calls that went against us instead of the plethora we experienced. Lot ways that game could have have been different today and I'm frustrated it ended that way. I don't know if you are in the camp, I don't pay enough attention to who posts what, but the "Yea! We won and are going to the dance!/Shit! We lost. Got fire MIles now" crowd is really annoying. That is the group I think is the most childish. Instant gratification is their way of life.
  3. Jordy's foul was a dead ball foul, the first two offset each other.
  4. Minnesota Game

    And the same bunch of people are way too quick to turn around when something bad happens and start talking about who we are hiring next when we fire this guy.
  5. Shooting % under Coach Miles

    Roy Williams never played in College. I have found no connection between good players and good coaches. Some players make good coaches and some do not.
  6. I stopped reading when I got to the part about teams not hedging hard on our ball screens. That’s exactly what we’ve seen all year.
  7. Nebraska (6-2) vs Mich St. (6-1) Game Thread

    I don't think they make that big of a difference. Copeland is not a big wing so he's taking minutes from both of the two that left if they were still here. Morrow plays if he can keep a good attitude and that helps with some of our rebounding issues. With Copeland and Roby and especially if Morrow stays as in your scenario, Jacobson just isn't getting on the floor which is why I think he left.
  8. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    I just watched Gonzaga beat Creighton. The Zags have a 6'9 post named Jonathan Williams. That's what Roby could be and much more. Williams is so much more aggressive in going and getting his shot than Roby and I would think he has a much better jump hook (He shoots the one with the rotating shoulders), but I don't know because Roby hasn't been aggressive enough for me to see that shot from him. To me Roby looks more athletic and just needs the confidence to use it and his skills. Williams just took it to Creighton. He ended up with 15 points, 5 rebounds and a block. If Roby averaged those in the Big 10 he's getting postseason honors.
  9. 3 point shooting

    That's what happened against St. Johns. We continued to chuck up (and that is an accurate description) threes no matter that none of them were going in.
  10. My point was there have been games that we had players shoot the lights out. I'm not looking back but I assume there wasn't a lot of assists in the St. John's game because we didn't make a lot of baskets. Whoever has been passing the ball to Gill the last couple of games have been getting an assist.
  11. One of the big differences is this year we have had people be able to put the ball in the basket.
  12. Run

    If it was humanly possible or for them to continue shooting that well going forward, almost anything they did at all on offense would be a perfect fit.
  13. Rick Pitino?

    And when he was about to get fired at Iowa State there were a ton of people on this board making statements about how poor a coach he was. Different situations for different people and timing is everything.
  14. Run

    We don’t have a possession offense. I’m not even sure what a protect the ball offense is, running the shot clock down every possession? If that’s what you mean, we don’t do that. We are trying to run. It’s hard to do that after made baskets and the packline defense we run is designed to not give up easy shots so that means it doesn’t create many turnovers. Go ahead and give your opinion but you should stop making technical comments because you don’t seem to really understand the game on a more than surface level.
  15. I can't tell if you are being facetious or not, but there are other and better ways to train someone to keep the ball chinned. I'm sure it has been mentioned to him before. You can only get so far with negative conditioning and even if you want to go that route, you can get the same effect with one sprint as opposed to the getting to the puking stage.
