    This is a non-exhaustive list:


    Defending the wrong opposing player

    Defending the wrong basket

    Leaving your jock on the floor

    Trying to take a charge

    Slapping the floor while the ball is in play

    Saying "My bad" when the other team dunks it

    Fouling the other team 35 feet from the basket with the shot clock about to expire

    Twerking on the low blocks when the opposing team enters it into the post



    There's probably other stuff, too.  But that's a start.

    Just for argument's sake, when is a dude twerking, regardless of circumstance, NOT an error?

    Exactly.  Total error.  I didn't see anyone do that Tuesday night, but if they would have, it would have been a defensive error.

    Or, depending on your usage, offensive...I'm guessing it'd be more offensive to a big chunk of the arena to see Leslie Smith bouncing his caboose on some unsuspecting opponent, regardless of who has the ball.


    Happy Friday? (there's plenty of booze to be had at happy hour to burn that image from your brain...)

    I did enjoy the comments Coach Miles made about defensive errors.  Coaching defense isn't as easy as simply saying you are going to man-to-man.  His staff counts and coaches to these errors.  How do you improve on the defensive end, you limit the mistakes. 


    This program is going in the right direction.  Man, it is great to see.

    They're trying out different venues for the event....while the Mellow Mushroom is a pretty good place to get some pizza it wasn't the best place to hold the event.


    Kent was the MC of the night and when asked about the hardest names to pronounce he ened with Chief Kickingstallionsims as his favorite.  There were some trivia questions with shirts to be won.


    Miles, Kenya Hunter, and Teddy Owens showed up around 7.

    Miles did his typical stand-up routine, talked a little about Hammond and about the toughness of the upcoming schedule.

    Kenya spoke but between his relative soft spokenness and the noise of the crowd I didn't really catch anything he said.


    A couple of Vine videos






    Got to meet up with some HHC members and I'll always plan on wearing my HHC shirt so feel free to say hi to the guy with the shirt at these things and odds are it's me.


    My favorite part of the night was talking to Kent after the event and listening him explain the Pavelkatron to one of the members of the Husker staff and me just thinking this is why he's the voice of the Huskers....after he explained it I felt that I had a better understanding of the thing and I made it!
