Palmer should've been 1st team in both but we shouldn't be surprised he's not in the media because they've been discounting Nebraska's success all year.

 

Exactly.  The people who have to game-plan for us aren't discounting us.

Refresh my memory...

 

What was the expectation for Palmer coming into the year? Was he expected to be really good?

 

not first team all conference good, no.

Yeah, I know that. Was he projected to be our top scorer or possibly our best player?

He was projected to be a starter but most people thought Copeland and Watson would contribute more. There was one media member who was very high on Palmer and I can't remember who that was right now. That person deserves props.

I believe @Jacob Padilla said it on this board. Was really high on him.

Robin Washut tweeted that Palmer would be our leading scorer.

I don't get too many things right but I said he would be our top scorer after watching the open practice.

 

I got that impression too after Palmer scored 17 and the next highest scoring player in the scrimmage had 10.

 

Of course, prior to that, he also had 17 against Mississippi State and our next highest scoring player had 11.

Pre open scrimmages amd exhibitions, I had him pegged around 8 or 9 pts. After getting more info he was either my leading scorer or second, cant remember. But it would have been closer to 15 points than 17.

Mississippi State was an eye-opener for sure.  He showed a lot of what he could do right off the bat.

 

That's the only game I can remember clearly where he started hot and cooled off.  Otherwise, it seems like he's hit stride more in the second half of games.  He puts up a lot of points that you just don't notice because he's not calling for the ball all the time.

 

Now, second half, holding a lead, we usually run a little weave until we get it into his hands and let him create, but I'm just talking in the timeframe of the normal flow of a game where he seems to get harder to stop later in the action.  Or he just rises to the occasion and starts making things happen when we get closer to crunch time.

All I ever heard is people saying Palmer wasn’t qualifying and that his shooting percentage at Miami was terrible.
