Really good preview of the Big Ten up today on Three Man Weave.  Here's just a small taste of the Nebraska section:


Outlook: Headline: Nebrasketball undergoes a major overhaul… The Huskers let go of Tim Miles at the end of last season, a coach the Weave hold in high regard. Miles spent seven years at the helm of Nebraska and built the program to respectability, taking the Huskers to their first NCAA Tournament in 2014 since 1998. Injuries derailed what was supposed to be a banner year in Lincoln, as Nebraska finished just 6-14 in Big Ten play following a 13-5 breakout season in 2017-18. Now the program turns to Fred Hoiberg, the former Iowa State and Chicago Bulls coach, who comes back to the college ranks for the first time since 2014-15. Hoiberg was a homerun hire for a school not known for basketball; he took the Cyclones to four straight NCAA Tournaments before jumping ship to the pros, and his squads were always among the most fun to watch in college basketball. Just as he did at Iowa State, Hoiberg brings in a boatload of transfers to give Nebraska a completely new look for the 2019-20 season.

Picked 12th with the potential to be "top 6" in the league. I guess we'll see about that. I'm impressed with the fairly decent survey of a team that returns 2.0 ppg & 2.1 rpg in Thor's production.

According to Washut, Cam Mack looks the part and Jervay is settling in and there's a reason those two are going to rep the Huskers at Big Ten Media Days.


Ouedraogo is a beast and an athletic freak who can throw it down but he's still raw and trying to catch up.


(It's going to really bug me that he chose France over Fred, and missed a huge opportunity to develop over the summer.)
