    uneblinstu's postgame chatter: Vol: 10; ed: 20, Illinois


    Norm Peterson
    •  

    uneblinstu is unavailable tonight, so I thought I'd get the ball rolling talking about what a horrible game we had on the boards, and how we should have blown them out, and how it was far closer than it should have been. But, in spite of all that, losing that lead on a 4-point play with 8 seconds left and then having James Palmer shoot a running 3-pointer at the buzzer was probably about as fun a way to win that game as you could have scripted it.

     

    I'll take it.

     

    Bring on Michigan.

    As a current student at UNL, I can assure you that we will definitely provide the "Husker" ;). I might to try to start a fake shot clock countdown with the student section too. That's always really irritating when other teams do it. 

     

    Welcome, Ben, and thanks for your efforts.   

     

    FYI, as a Cubs and Royals fan, great job in back to back World Series.   As a result of your heroics, my son refers to you as the "greatest player of all  time".

    I do believe one of the officials was Tom Eades brother...

     

    From what I've been able to come up with, I don't even think they're related.

    Just an unfortunate same last name.   If my name was Eades I would change it.

    I’ve thought about this quite a bit towards the end of last year, and beginning of this year, and playing Illinois I figured it was a good time to bring it up. The buzzer beater from James, could have changed Nebraska basketball forever.

     

    Where do you think we are today if we lose that game to a spiraling Illinois team?

     

    I don’t think the rest of the year would have gone the way it did, and I don’t think we have the same head coach, and I don’t think we have still have James and Cope.

    There are a lot of people around these Husker message boards who would say that'd been a good thing.  Let those players transfer; better to get started with a new coach.  So, instead of floundering at 6-1 near the bottom of the top 25, we could be well underway with the next coach's rebuilding project.

    There’s a name Norm for those people you reference, and yes I know they’re out there. Fools...

     

    Yet another highly understated 4 letter word that is fully descriptive yet not nearly satisfying enough.

     

    I've got a few more for people like that but this place is rated pg-ish
