  1. What are realistic expectations for the Husker Hoops program? My expectations for this program should be a lot higher than the current administration is accepting. With the new practice facility and new arena this program should never have a losing season period.(NIT or NCAA every year) With NU now getting a full share of the Big Ten revenue, we need to spend more money on recruiting and coaching in basketball, if this administration truly wants to win in basketball, NU should have one of the biggest budgets in basketball in the conference. No open scholarships. It seems like NU is always has unused scholarships, we need all the players we can get, depth is key due to injuries. Go Big Red!
  2. Can anyone really think this program (win/loss) is in any better shape now than under the last year of Barry Collier? Miles has the benefit of a new practice facility and new arena and the results are the same. (Should make the NCAA tourney or Nit every year) This program cannot afford to lose players early, when they do not go to the NBA, he has lost Terran,Walt and White. This is the worst shooting team in NU history. Not being able to get any of the top Nebraska kids (No excuses) two at Creighton and one at Omaha.
  3. Huskers & Wisconsin only Big teams with no Saturday home conference games. I thought maybe being a top tier team would get you more Saturday home games, after looking at a composite that is not the case, Penn St and Rutgers are near the top. Here is a listing of each teams Saturday home conference games ( I did this really quick, hopefully no errors) Michigan 5 Penn St 4 Rutgers 4 Maryland 3 Illinois 3 Indiana 2, TBD 1 Minnesota 2, TBD 1 Iowa 2 Purdue 2 MSU 1,TBD 1 NW 1,TBD 1 OSU 1 TBD 1 Wisconsin 0 NU 0 No reason for some teams to have 4 or 5 Saturday home games and others get 1 or zero.
  4. Help me understand because I don't think your first statement about a baseline donation is correct. I've been wrong before though. You can donate at any time to boost your priority points. Say you want to make a significant donation to increase your priority points and shoot yourself up the list for a better seat yourself time slot. So you take a pile of cash, maybe $10k, and hand it over. This boosts you up the list and you are able to move down into the non-club 100 level which requires a $100 per seat annual donation. You are not required to fork over 10k each year plus the seat contribution just to keep those tickets. That was the entire purpose of the standardized seat donations across the board (no donation, $50/seat, $100/seat, $750/seat for club) and the sport specific donations so you didn't have people who wanted better seats all trying to outbid each other with no process to regulate it. You can now donate toward the process to accumulate points which helps get/improve tickets, but once you get them the required seat donation is equal across the board for whatever level of seats you have. To clarify, I made a small basketball donation in Feb, at that time I had section 322 seats, no donation required for this section, then during the seat yourself process I was able to move down to section 222, no donation required for this section. My question is will I have to make the same basketball donation for the upcoming season, since the small donation moved me up just enough to get section 222 tickets?
  5. I have had 3, 322 level tickets for the first 3 years of Pinnacle bank arena, no donation required. In Feb I made a basketball donation to add to my points, this week I was able to move from 322 to 222, the new seats require no donation. My question is that since I made a small basketball donation in Feb, will be required to make this donation each year?
  6. No Saturday conference home games is just not acceptable. I understand the Big 10 network needs Sunday games, but all teams should have close to an even split between Saturday and Sunday home conference games.
  7. I was able to move from 321 to 222 today at 1:03 today, at that time there were only a few singles in the 100 level and the 200 level had just a few seats together.
  8. Wow...are corporate holders giving up seats? I don't see how there could be even close to that many open spots in the 100 level...almost whole sections? That's gotta be a joke right? I think you are reading the map wrong? The green areas have seats available, if you click on a section it will show what seats are available, the yellow sections mean all most sold out, and red areas have no tickets available. I did a quick count on seats available on the 100 and 200 levels and there are over 500 seat available.
  9. Got mine as well 1:03 pm Tuesday. Anyone know how many time slots are assigned each day and how much time between each time slot?
  10. I'm surprised I have not received a select your seat e-mail. Has anyone else received an e-mail ?
  11. Everyone should be getting an e-mail from the ticket office soon for the 16-17 seat yourself process. The seat yourself process begins Monday Aug 22. I would guess there will be more seats available this year, although I imagine most of those seats will be in the 300 level.
  12. I agree. If White plays for MSU, most media will say nothing to Izzo the only backlash he will get is from us Nebraska basketball fans. The more I think about this transfer the more upset I get and just how bush league this transfer is.
  13. I would have to guess someone close to Andrew told him to leave Nebraska and get on a team that will be in the top 20. My problem with this move is the late timing of this decision, NU will most likely not add another player for next year, and now have two open scholarships and a transfer sitting out, and a roster of only 10 active scholarship players. (Not acceptable) With Mr White's decision NU will most likely have another losing season in 16-17. The way things are going under Miles NU will always be young team and in the BIG that spells doom for most teams. What is up with his scholarship release? I thought if you are a graduate you can transfer to any school, the only thing is you must take a graduate class not offered by your previous school.
  14. NU has made 3 baskets this half,we should have 39 points?
  15. We sit in section 322 and we have left our seats early for a few games, we have watched the end of the games from the top of the lower bowl on the north end, we have done this to beat the traffic, living in Omaha this helps get home a little quicker especially on weekday games. Hopefully next season the Huskers will get more than 1 Saturday home BIG home game.
