    Baylor Scheierman

    Thanks for asking, royalfan. The bone marrow transplant worked. All his bloodwork numbers have gone up steadily since October when we brought him home. He got the transplant in June of last year, and there were some scary times in between. Two weeks ago, he went to the Buffett Cancer Center with a staph infection in his leg. The infection tanked his numbers, but they've been improving on their own. He's been home now for a week, and is improving. Long story short, we know God healed him long ago. Sometimes it takes time to be revealed in the natural. Kinda like Nebraska Basketball.

    We can complain about on the court things, but the kids that stay or come and stay graduate. This team has some guys who are getting really good educations with a BA and Masters getting paid for. Also we don’t hear of them causing any problems off the court either. Two positives out all the on court stuff.

  9. So, let's say you're a highly sought after transfer kid who grew up in Nebraska and you're now in the transfer portal with your pick of a lot of places. Do you go ... a) to a local program where the head coach has won an average of 8 games per season for the last 3 seasons; OR b) somewhere else? I don't feel like I'm in any position to judge Baylor Scheierman's choice here. We need to earn the respect we want. Start winning some games and we'll start landing players like this. Until then, we really have no business complaining that he didn't pick us. Hell, I wouldn't pick us at this point.

  12. Washut says "there are people in Reeves’ camp who see that and are pushing him to pick NU," when talking about how different his role would be here vs. at Kentucky. Hoiberg is going to Chicago for an in-home visit this week. Seems like there's still some hope. I think the longer it goes on, the better it is for us, as Kentucky is in on some other top transfer guards. Hopefully they land some of them soon.

  13. Everyone wants to talk about the quotes where he refers to himself in the third person and sounds super arrogant. No one seems to want to talk about the quotes where he says he doesn't care if he scores 40 points or 0 points - he's out there to guard, rebound, and be an absolute dawg. I think some of you know what this team/program has been missing - but then are afraid of what that person actually looks like/how it manifests itself.

  17. If I was Griesel, it would be on sight when I saw Scheierman next year. Griesel outplayed him in the league championship game, hit the go-ahead three in his face with 3 minutes left, drew an and-1 opportunity against him shortly afterwards...just didn't have the support around him to get the win. Transfers back home and immediately gets overshadowed by the Scheierman show. Now that it's over, all the pundits want to talk about is how this further illustrates issues with NU. I'm pissed for Griesel! Seems like a really good kid and he was positive through this whole situation. But hoping...

  18. Actually, the downfall of NU's major sports really went careening out of control after Rose was hired to do football PxP and to be Pederson's yes man on the radio, so I blame him. He's a blowhard & tool of unimaginable proportions.

    I think the reality was that he wanted to finish on a team that should be pretty good, we can’t guarantee that at this time. Creighton can so… now I need to go take a bath in bleach for saying that…

    Baylor Scheierman

    At this point, I think he's honestly the last thing we need. He'd be much better off at Creighton anyway. They have a stronger culture that could potentially withstand the locker room damage this kind of deal will inevitably create. For us, I think it might be completely devastating. And just for the record, this is not a sour grapes "we didn't want him anyway". That's not the case at all. I think we probably could have used Baylor Scheierman the player, absolutely. But we probably are NOT ready for "The Baylor Scheierman Experience" as it has apparently become. So, with that I say congrats Creighton, tip my hat, and go on. Hoping we can find people who are here to build a culture.

  22. I'll be honest, the way this agent is shopping Baylor really turns me off. He realizes it's a seller's market right now with most of the top transfers off the table. But he's literally demanding a big paycheck AND a featured role. Not sure most current players would welcome a guy like that. I'm sure Baylor's a nice kid and all, but if this were anyone else and if we weren't involved, then everyone would absolutely hate this.

  23. This is kind of where I end up with some of these kids. Would a lot of the good mid major kids be good if they were riding the pine at a higher level school? Or does the valuable experience they get playing at a lower level allow them to develop? I actually lean toward the latter. It is much easier to get better at things with experience actually doing said things.

    Well 95% of our roster the last three years couldn’t shoot… but also didn’t play defense. And couldn’t drive to the rim under control and finish. So this is an improvement in 2 out of your 3 criteria.

    OT - Billie Andrews

    The Husker pitchers, Courtney Wallace and Oliva Ferrel are to be commended for their excellent pitching during the whole tournament. We would not have won the Championship if they hadn't preformed so well. Michigan had runners on third base multiple times during this game and did not score. One time with no out. It's a great feeling to beat Michigan all three times this year. Winning the Championship and coming in second place during the regular season should gives us an excellent seating in the NCAA Tournament. Hopefully a second seed with a weaker first seed. Don't think our strength of schedule will gives us a first seed. Also think a third seed would be unjust but Nebraska rarely seems to get national respect so who knows where we will end up. I have been following women's softball for a long time and did not see this success coming. Basically the same team that finished in the bottom half of the Big Ten last year minus one of our all time best players, Kristen Edwards. GBR

    Bob Lanier passes.

    Ah man, I was a big Sixers fan in the early 80’s when the Sixers and Bucks seemed to tangle in the playoffs every year. Lanier, Junior Bridgeman(sp?), Sidney Moncrief, Brian Winters vs Doc, Dawkins, Bobby and Caldwell Jones, Mo Cheeks, Andrew Toney….I want to relive my childhood. It was all so larger than life back then.

  36. “The biggest separator was the culture,” Scheierman told the World-Herald. “Coach Hoiberg’s trying to build that culture with Nebrasketball. Creighton has already established its culture." Year 4 and still don't have a culture established. Any coach worth their weight has definitive signs their culture is being established by the second part of their first year. This is an embarrassing indictment on our program. https://omaha.com/sports/college/creighton/baylor-scheierman-commits-to-creighton/article_34af5b48-cae2-11ec-a9a0-9f670a219420.html

    This is as must get as a must get ever gets. Have probably watched over 100 of his football and basketball games. He has the it factor that cannot be taught. He is the best player on the court or field at all times is his mind set. Mind blowing passer, elite 3 point range, elite rebounder. Having this skill set in a tall body makes it incredibly hard to game plan for as you cannot replicate his skill set in practice. His foot speed is the biggest flaw. He is still able to defend quicker players by having elite basketball smarts. Knows exactly how much room to give while still being able to contest the shot with his length. His preferred game is not really banging down low as a small ball 4 but can certainly do it in stretches. He had never been on a bad team in his life and I expect it to be no different if we could get him here. Still pulling for him to land that NBA gig if he thinks time is right. If needs place to showcase at a higher level, Nebraska a natural elite fit. Family very important to him for starters. Hour from Aurora for his parents and younger brother to watch him play.

  43. Same as I have always wanted. I haven't missed a home game since 1984 and have attended since 1974. I cheered at the Coliseum, Devaney and PBA. I am alive with every win, cried like a baby after beating teams like KU and Wisconsin and die a little with every disappointment. I want to win. I want players who prove it on the court. I have the same expectation for this kid as all the kids. We have a lot of coaches who didn't allow players to talk until they played. So there is a bit of crumogeon attitude in my head. I want to see you perform...then you can talk. I know that is naive, but there is an answer to your question.

    It’s the offseason, so he can only talk. And this is his introduction to us Nebraska fans. I personally like the confidence. Making the NCAA tournament is certainly a team accomplishment he mentions. No need for us to project our collective frustration with our lack of success onto a young man who just committed to try and bring us success. Welcome to Nebraska, Juwan!

  45. I agree...but let's take that same philosophy and pump the breaks on assuming he's not a team player based on one quote - especially when 60 games at Bama say quite the opposite.

    Juwan Gary - Transfer N

    No idea on the chemistry aspect. Once you delve more into him past the lack of playing time and poor outside shooting you find a guy who been an efficient player who has great touch around the rim, rebounds well, and is a rim defender. If you read up on him you'll find that he got elbowed hard in the face in January which caused him to miss games and left him playing with a mask for the rest of the season which seemed to hurt his production. I don't know exactly what to expect from Denim Dawson but this seems like what we might expect from Dawson in two years. Think this guy would function well with the type of defense we plan to play and might be our Trey McGowens defensive replacement. Could see him starting day 1 if he ends up with us.
