    Wanted to start a thread to talk about Wednesday's scrimmage. I'm definitely excited while realizing that it's going to be a crapfest of tired legs and half effort from guys on the same team but anythings better than nothing right. With that said has a schedule been released for how the night will go, I think I remember a dunk or three point contest one night, or anything else like how long will the scrimmage be quarters, halves, where to park, whatever. I'd also invite you all to come and be a part of the podcast. I'd love to get to meet some of you and talk some basketball. I will be holding up a sign that says Risky Roadz Pod occasionally so I shouldn't be hard to find but if you want to meet me somewhere in the arena just let me know where! Feel free to come over even during to scrimmage and give your thoughts. Basketball is finally back!

    The official scrimmage shooting % was not the best, but did you see the scrimmage before intros. Watson, Allen Nana all hit a couple along with Burke and Cope and. Roby each hit one. Palmer was the only one who didn’t hit. The 3pt % had to be in the 70’s if not higher. 

    Yes, I did see that Dean.  Sort of why I referenced possible tired legs.  But our percentage was not high at Iowa State either.  So, again I hope it is tired legs.

    Take this for what it's worth from a guy who fed and wrestled 3 kids.

     

    I thought they looked a lot more crisp in the scrimmage before the scrimmage so the 3pt misses are whatever. 

    Burke would either be the 5th starter or the first guy off the bench if he could play this year. As it stands Thomas Allen has that spot locked up.

    Nana is going to see significant minutes this year but I think he seems like a guy who will have those 'Toney McCray what the heck are you doing out there" moments.

    We'll see how he progresses but Chan looks more like a walk-on than he does a guy who might crack the rotation.  Did anyone watch who he was defending when he was out there?  

     

    Ya, my son pointed out they had him guarding one of the Elk South kids, don't remember which one, but his comment was, "If that's who they told him to guard that doesn't say much about their confidence in his ability to guard anyone."

    I can't recall if it was in the scrimmage or the pre-scrimmage, but he was briefly covering Isaiah.  He really looked awkward on the floor.  Sort of like he was playing mechanical rather than loose.  Part of me believes he doesn't know the system yet, so he was always a half-tic off.

    The silver cloud lining is that after watching Jordy and Dube throw the ball towards the hoop and pray that if we do ever see Chan out there he will be able to score.  When I did watch his highlights I saw a guy who had posts moves and the ability to knock down a 3.

    I was actually surprised by the level of seriousness and average play. Always have to remember these guys already had a hard practice before this and won't play anywhere close to where they will in a game.

     

    Anyone else remember the public scrimmage before the season Terran's sophomore year and how horrible he looked? Couldn't hit jack squat. But, hey, they'd been practicing for however long before the fans got in the arena.  Seems probable his legs were a bit tired and shots weren't falling.

     

    I'm not going to put much into the shooting percentages tonight.  We have 5 really talented starters.  We have a couple of guys who can come in off the bench and be serviceable.

     

    I think we'll be fine.

    Chan puts the weirdest sidespin on the ball when he shoots that I think I've ever seen. Somehow it goes in. 

     

    I wish they'd start over with Amir's shot, though. Start it over from ground zero and build him up from square one. Do it now, while he's still young and can overhaul the thing for real.  Don't tweak it; start over and build it from the ground up.

    I don't care what the hell you do or who looks good or bad.  Just make damn sure that no one gets hurt. 

     

    Please and thank you!

    Just remember we could be dealing with this right now. Also the sights and sounds from tonight are up on the podcast as well as a little reaction from the secret scrimmage. 👍

    So we are looking at Watson Allen Palmer cope and roby as starters with Amir as a guard sub nana as a 3 n 4 and tanner as a 4 n 5. Possibly Brady in there if needed? Chan and Thor as the bench mob? Am I missing anyone? Any chance Costello plays a role? Heard he can shoot it

    I wouldn’t take too much away from the actual scrimmage...Miles mentioned they had a hard practice earlier, plus the pre-scrimmage scrimmage, so fatigue and just the factors of a really long day were at play. Burke can flat out play. Nice quickness. Donovan Williams looks like he’s 28.

    Amazing what people will do for free stuff.  

     

    A security guard came out and invited anyone who wanted to skip the t-shirt line to take a different door directly into the tunnel and to the seats. Jumped at that chance. Was more interested in watching practice than waiting an extra 20 minutes to get to the front of the t-shirt line.

    More like 38 🙂

    Did the same and got great seats.   Had some fun watching people stay in that ridiculous line for a T-shirt.   Especially the ones without kids.

    I skipped the line and as I was walking to my seat, the dude at the end simply asked if I wanted a shirt and he tossed me one.  Best of all worlds.  The shirt likely has a street value of $500, so I am glad he was so kind.  Another dude gave me about five posters as he grabbed a bunch and didn't need them all.  

     

    By the way, in the past I would view a scrimmage like this with rose colored glasses.  I was hoping and wishing the Huskers were going to be good.  This year, my expectations were much higher and I found myself looking at the team with a much more critical eye.  And because of that, I found myself underwhelmed.  That said, we have an exceptional first five.  Those five players can likely compete with any team in the country, and prevail against most.  My concern is with the depth.  We currently do not have instant offense coming off the bench.  We should have players that can/should play roles effectively.  

     

    Time and maturation will help.

    I think Karrington & Burke look enough alike that TM probably should have said "Burke is having achilles surgery, and KD will be playing a lot"......

     

    Burke would fit in REALLY REALLY good with this team.

    1) Burke is a beast and will be huge for us in the coming years.

    2) Wish Thomas was more aggressive with how good of a shooter he is, wish he shot as much as Costello does when he plays.

    3) Glynn looked good which is uber important

    4) If Nana can just be a more athletic Jack McVeigh this year that is really all we need.

    Miles has repeatedly said that Tom needs to play “outside of his personality “ because he’s pretty chill and laid back off the court

     

    That's an interesting comment from Coach Miles. Hopefully Tom Allen can light it up, no matter how chill he might be outside of the arena. GBR

    Excellent point about Nana.  If you were at the playground picking teams, you'd probably take Nana, right?

     

    Agreed, Glynn looked good.  And confident.  I'm thinking/hoping that means a return to his sophomore year shooting numbers

     

    Thomas Allen picks his spots.  He shoots when the opportunity presents.  I was overall pleased with the all-around game he displayed last night.  He appeared comfortable with his role and was doing some of the little things that don't always show up on stat sheets.

     

    Burke is very good.  Extremely quick change of direction and is able to turn on the jets to get past his guy and then finish at the rim.  Not a great perimeter shooter, but good enough you have to account for him.  Feel a lot more comfortable about where the back court might be next year with him being eligible and bringing Jervay Green in.  Still worried about the front court next year, though.  Yikes.
