What B-town mentions plus the league's showing this year will automatically lead to the perception by the pundits that next year will be a "down" one for the Big Ten. Therefore, Nebraska will have to

Same could be said for Thor. We have room. It looks like we'll probably keep a couple spots open. He doesn't count against our total this year anyway. Why on earth would you not want Thor around. Even

People asking lots of questions.   Who's going to play what position? Will the newcomers come in and command a bunch of minutes and starts? At whose expense will the newcomers gain minutes?

I can't wait to see how we play against N/A at Penn State this upcoming season...

 

 

 

Ignoring PSU for the moment, that is an impressive list. 

-13/14 schools landed a Top 200 recruit. 

-9/14 landed a 4* Top 100

-6/14 landed a Top 40

 

It's a sobering reminder that, while our talent has indeed upgraded, this league continues to be the most talented top-to-bottom in the country.

I don't have a subscription for The Athletic, so didn't read, but here's something today:

 

 

 

 

They're both links to the same article.  Not sure why Mitch tweeted it out twice.  But if anyone with an Athletic sub wants to summarize here, that would be greatly appreciated.

Below is the heights and weights of the Iowa State roster from Fred's first season vs. the heights and weights of our current roster.  Hopefully some S&C work will correct some of the weight disparity - otherwise NU might get pushed around quite a bit.  And if Walker or Andre are out with an injury - well, perish the thought.

After Creighton’s last 2 commits for the 2021 class, my prediction that Nebraska will beat Creighton in 2021-2022 has gotten much more difficult:

 

Consensus 2021 4-star, top 100 guard Trey Alexander commits to Creighton
 

“Alexander’s addition to the incoming high schoolers Christofilis, Kaluma, Miller, and Nembhard boosts the Jays’ 2021 recruiting class above Kentucky and Florida State and into the Top 5 on 247Sports behind only Michigan, Gonzaga, Tennessee, and Duke.”

I get that this is the off-season so there isn't much else to talk about, but I just don't care enough about creighton to give them the level of attention y'all are.  Sure, I want to crush them.  Their fans are horrible and entitled, they're our rival, and we haven't beat them in a long time.  Come creighton game week, I will be right there with all of you.  But obsessing over their roster moves 5 months before the season starts...that just screams Little Brother Mentality.

If the talent we brought into the baseball program in such a short time period is any indication of our influx of basketball talent we just brought in this season, this could be a lot of fun to watch!

 

Was the talent level really improved that quickly by Bolt?  Seems like most of the key contributors this year were upperclassmen. I figured it was more of a player development thing than an overhaul of talent, but I don't follow the baseball team nearly as closely as a lot of others on this board.

Player development by Bolt and his staff has been really impressive. But, in a couple years I think we will realize the talent upgrade as well. This year, Anderson and Matthews had much better freshman seasons than Acker, Hallmark and Roskam did. Steil also showed flashes of being a future stud and people forget Banjoff was a freshman All-American last year. 
 

In our 2021 recruiting class, we have three players who will probably be drafted higher than Schwellenbach was out of high school. 
 

Combine all this young talent with the staff’s apparent ability to rapidly develop players and the future looks very bright for Husker baseball.
