Cross took all those 3s because they gave him the green light. The guy is a post player who can handle the ball, shoot from outside, has good court vision, and has an aggressive scoring mentality.  Feels like if he did transfer it's because he wasn't happy, not Nebraska

 

Not sure I'd agree that Cross can shoot from outside nor that he has good court vision.  I'll agree that he has an aggressive scoring mentality though, since most rational humans would stop shooting after missing that much. 🥴

Visually, you could see him making difficult passes to get teammates an easy bucket.

Statistically he was third on the team behind Mack and Green, PGs, in assist %.

 

Him at the 4 when he's not trying to bait a slow center out of the paint might naturally rein in his shot. We also might coach him down a bit with better options.  Feels like he's playing major minutes between the 4 and 5 next year assuming he's here (after last year I'm not going to assume anyone except Thor will be here this year 😎)

Think we have, as close as you can in CBB, a final answer when it comes to roster attrition by the end of the week?

 

Cant remember how long this normally takes to shake out.

 

I would assume that Hoiberg will have spoken to every player by the end of this week, if he hasn't done so already. So, I would also assume that the players who were going transfer or are now transferring after speaking with Hoiberg will have entered the portal by the end of this week.

 

That doesn't mean no further roster attrition will occur after this week. Perhaps someone is injured and is waiting until after surgery to transfer so they can still receive top-notch medical treatment (a la Jordy Tshimanga). Perhaps the filling of the last scholarship spot prompts a change of heart in someone else (a la Donovan Williams). Or maybe somebody thinks they can find a better situation elsewhere and wants to be a real jerk about it (a la Andrew White, III).

 

So, while nothing is ever certain, I would suspect we'll know who isn't returning next year by week's end.

We have had a couple extreme cases of late roster attrition. I dont follow enough of CBB in its totality to know if that is a common occurence or not.

 

I'd have a hard time believing Fred plays that game given his complete willingness to recruit over current roster numbers, and I don't blame him.  

 

In other words, I don't think we'll have any teams hinging its next season's status on whether or not a player returns.

They had a nice piece on 10/11 last night about next season & the HUGE (& welcome, I might add) roster turnover.  Just seeing Banton, Stevenson, Walker etc in a shoot-around made me smile. At least we’ll look like a B1G team coming off the bus, as they say...

Are HCFH and Co. doing interviews rn? Anyone know of his next media appearance?

 

Would love to hear his take on the current roster situation. With the grad transfer Marfo or the possible reclassification of Sanogo, it is clear we are looking for an immediate upgrade in size/rebounding. We already filled our PG need with Kobe Webster. Other than that it seems the staff is comfortable holding serve with the rest of the roster as most of the contact/offers being put out are to sit out guys. 

 

*This is me also acknowledging that it is super early in the transfer/attrition game so things can (and probably will) change.

Sounds like we are out of it with Marfo unfortunately...  Robin Washut is pretty optimistic that we will get Sanogo though..
