  1. I have no idea what kind of a player he is, but I saw him at the Special Olympics Camp and I can say with certainty he is an absolutely great person.

  2. The guy I'm hearing is Ernie Zeigler. You might remember that name from when he was the coach at Central Michigan in 2011-12 as they came to play in the Bob during Doc's last year. At the time he was coaching his son Trey. Otherwise he's been an assistant under Ben Howland in three different places, most recently Mississippi St. (Ironically, David Anwar is one assistant who replaced him) He's known as a recruiter so it's a fairly high profile grab at this point if that's the hire.

  5. Not sure I approve. He was 2-18 passing against K-State in that 1968 debacle. Well, maybe he's a better coach than he was a quarterback.

    Well this all sounds promising. I like the reminder that Wilhelm was/is a 4* player. He is stronger and bigger...and well, he wants to play defense. Will is one of the players that I didn't have a problem with last year. Yeah he did some stupid things, sure. But I personally see him as a positive. I'm glad he is back. https://247sports.com/college/nebraska/Article/Nebraska-Huskers-Wilhelm-Breidenback-talks-about-injury-rehab-190891143/

    A bit of a nutshell that Keisei is a situational player and his playing time should be dependent on a combination of - Is he 'feeling it' - Is the other team exploiting him Besides him being more experienced, I think that being paired with bigger guys like Griesel and Lloyd at PG instead of Verge and Webster makes his lack of size easier to hide on the court. Speaking of experienced, he's 1 of the 7 guys on the roster with D-1 experience so I'd expect a role for him at the beginning of the season.

  11. Fourth of July Scrimmage: Blaise Keita: as good as advertised, a Grown A** Man! Gary: Strong to the hole, tough on ball defender. Bandoumel: Better shooter/ball handler than expected. Lyod: Very smooth, definitely in the mix for major minutes. The BIGGEST take away is this though, your starting 5 was Blaise, Walker, Gary, Bandoumel, Griesel. Your first player to “flip” sides was Briedenbach for Walker.

  19. There is a lot to absorb in that little statement. A lot. A few of the many reasons last year was a colossal dumpster fire. Not watching film...talking back at coaches...no cohesion...no leadership...no coaching...no discipline...NO FLIPPIN CHANCE! Fans should have a gotten their money back!!!!

  20. https://hooplanewsletter.substack.com/p/2022-michigan-preview?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=email Hillmon, Dilk and Rauch were three of the most important players in reaching Michigan’s current mountain top, but there is more than enough talent for KBA to keep the Wolverines from falling into a slump. A healthy Brown mixed with Kiser, Nolan and Phelia makes for a very solid core that is strong on both sides of the floor, and one that could be able to space out the offense more on the perimeter. That fifth starting spot is an intriguing one, and it could be the decider on if Michigan stays with a similar-ish look (Varejao, Stuck) or shifts to a more guard-heavy style of play (Kampschroeder, Clarke). No matter what, this team can not and will not look the same without Naz Hillmon. She was a force too powerful and too one of a kind to replace, but Michigan has done extremely well in keeping a roster together that can still have similar aspirations. I’m very excited to see what this Wolverines roster looks like. This is for sure an NCAA Tournament roster on paper, and if things go right in development — something Barnes Arico has done about as well as any coach in the country — maybe this team even makes it back into the second weekend. I would have my doubts about that, but KBA has already pulled magic out of a program that was dead and buried for years. Nothing she does at this Michigan program should ever be a surprise anymore.

    I'll do you one better and call my shot that we finish 9th. Can't see us much higher than that but think that is doable.

  24. Yeah, tough to know what we have here as we either caught him just having a good weekend or perhaps caught a guy just starting to reach his potential. Guy might end up turning into an impact freshman thanks to prep school or he might be the next Karrington Davis (spent an injured year playing for Monteverde Academy). 6'7" and can shoot is our type of lottery ticket though.

  25. From IMG?! Have we ever been seriously-in on a player from IMG before? And here's a tid-bit floating out there on the internet [so it must be true] about him: "He is definitely under the radar because he only played 2 years...he hurt his back one year..missed aau...played high school...then covid hit and missed aau a second time...played this year enough to go to the state playoffs. So his exposure was limited."

    Break out player

    Those teams mentioned pass with a purpose, with an intent to create open shots for their teammates. Unfortunately, the last 3 years we've had players that need the ball in their hands (Mack, Teddy, and Verge) which kills any kind of offensive flow/rhythm. Hopefully this new recruiting approach creates a more team-focused style of play which leads to more open shots.

  32. Fair point. Unfortunately I (we) have endured our share of losing and mediocrity. Let me begin by stating IT IS TIME TO WIN AND SUSTAIN A WINNING PROGRAM. NOT JUST A WINNING TEAM, A WINNING PROGRAM. What pissed me off the last two years was the total lack of discipline and effort. I get, and generally accept a loss when effort was extended; but what was witnessed the last two years is totally unacceptable. So, to sort of answer your question, I will not like losing, but as long as we are making positive progress, which includes discipline and effort, I will be happier. Two other points...(1) I don't agree with the belief that our offense will be inept. Good defense will result in some offense. Also, we should be more efficient, which will help. And to add to the point, we are a major college team, we will not be totally bereft of shooting talent. I am hoping to be surprised that we can score. (2) Call me out, but I believe we will tell if we have improved our discipline and effort by simply watching pregame warm ups. Those of you who have watched our pregame routines the last two years may pick up on what I am putting down.

  34. I mean you're right. Things looked very cohesive last year. That looked liked a well oiled machine. Practices must have run perfectly. No possible way there were culture problems. The coaching turnover was probably related to better opportunities at other Universities. The restructured contract was out of the goodness of Hoibergs heart to do right by the University. Yup. All is well on the Husker basketball front

  35. So . . . we now know what happens day-to-day in practice, based on one player’s brief attempt to explain how this year’s team is better, at this early stage, than last year’s team?! Such a thing is Exhibit A for how false rumors start and then expand to something unhinged from reality.

  36. This is disturbing. The coaches who are successful (Izzo, Self, Jay Wright, etc.) are able to impose their will on their players. They demand that things be done the right way. Some of them may allow for a player to blow off some steam in the heat of the moment, but in the end, the player does what he's instructed to do or there are consequences. On teams where there is a healthy culture, leaders on the team enforce the instructions given by the coaching staff. Hoping the current crew of players can change the culture. My brother was talking with a Michigan basketball booster. The booster said that when John Beilein was coaching, he would often stop practice for even small errors, like making a pass to the wrong shoulder, or failing to set a pick correctly. That's the type of attention to detail which makes a team successful.

  38. Kept all 4 in lower part of section 101. Actually sell 2 to couple friends that split them. Never considered giving them up even though have hour 20 drive. Any excuse to eat wings at NZone also a factor. I'm riding this sumbuck out. On a side note, 81 year old guy that sits 10 rows behind me told me he was "done with this sh**" as we left last game last season. He has since changed his mind and renewed.

  39. The episode of "Better Call Saul" I watched last night may at least have put Omaha on the map for the fly-over types. Heck, it even had a mention of Bo Pelini, Taylor Martinez, and Dr. Tom thrown in.

  41. Kept both men's and women's bball tickets, with trying to get better parking for men's as it's a lot tougher for dad to walk as far as we are. We did dump our football tickets though. Dad couldn't justify the 1500 a seat donation plus ticket cost with what the record has been, and also the condition of the stadium. No rails, seat spacing that is no longer realistic due to size of people. Whole stadium bleachers should be replaced with chairback.

    And let me just add: This "rules for thee but not for me" attitude was tolerated by the man in charge, but it was facilitated/enabled by a certain assistant who is no longer here. And that might have something to do with why we're not seeing it happening now. Thank goodness. If there is a significant difference in our record this year compared to the last three, I know some folks who know some things who will identify one staff change as being the primary reason why.

    It took me awhile to catch up with my friend (death in the family etc) but here’s the main takeaway: The First Team was, Blaise, Walker, Griesel, Gary & Bandoumel. Looks like Fred is ready to Go BIG or Go Home. Wilcher, Briedenbach look very differently physically than last season. Lloyd is as polished as we’ve been told & for whatever it’s worth, the guys really seem to get along & LIKE each other.
