Fred Hoiberg said he’d take traditional bigs all day as long and they can run and shoot. But also said they’ve had a lot of success with 6-7 centers. Didn’t rule out playing a five-guard lineup if need be.

This quote makes me smile! Gonna ruffle a ton of feathers.

I’m completely fine with this lineup, of a bunch of switchable wings and fast guards let’s run teams off the floor and shoot 3’s

Checked in with our friends from Creighton.  It is amazing how quickly the I hate UNL thread has come to halt.  They don't have anything, other than someone from Lincoln raided a WWE hall of fame ceremony so we are all dumb drunk hicks.  I cannot wait for these elitist douchebags to start eating losses.

I am way cool with small ball.  Everyone just has to be able to shoot.  That has been our problem of late when we had a tough time scoring.  

 

This. Because the Big Ten is known for having some really effective bigs that are tough to deal with on the low post. But if we can stretch out the defense with our shooting, then that lane starts to open up down the road.

Interesting take on BtownBanners message board today in regards to the job Hoiberg has been doing so far...suffice to say they are not impressed:

 

 


 

 

To expand on the "Hoiberg is NOT setting Nebraska up for success" theory:

I understand the older grad transfer and junior college transfer additions - those kids are placeholders until they find better talent. 

But, the freshmen and sophomores he's brought in so far? He'll be stuck with them for three/four years, and here's who he's signed:

 

 Akol Arop Omaha, NE F 6-6 190 Freshman, composite ranking 322

 

  Dalano Banton Toronto, Ontario, G 6-8 195 Sophomore, 3.4 ppg at Western Kentucky

 

  Kevin Cross, Little Rock, AR F 6-8 240 Freshman, composite ranking 468

 

  Samari Curtis, Xenia, OH G 6-4 190 Freshman, composite ranking 184

 

  Cam Mack, Austin, TX G 6-2 175 Sophomore, composite 26th ranked junior college player

 

  Yvan Ouedraogo, Bordeaux, France, F 6-9 260 Freshman composite unranked 

 

 Jace Piatkowski, freshman, Elkhorn, Nebraska, 6'4", 170 Freshman Walk-on, Unranked

 

In summary, his "no-stone unturned" approach is finding a lot of moldy moss under those stones, and six of them will be on a three or four year scholarship ride with the Huskers.

I trust Hiobergs judgement. Are we going to hit on all of them?? Absolutely not, but one or two will be really good and two or three will be solid contributors and a handful will finish their college careers else where. Thats just the nature of the beast.
