    I will never understand this type of thinking. There are few people anywhere as invested in the fortunes of the Husker hoops program as Thor. We need more guys on the team like him, not less, IMO.

    Why the hate

    Teddy Allen is scoring 0.967 points per possession, which Synergy classifies as "very good" and in the 73rd percentile. He's "very good" both in the halfcourt and in transition. He's in the 72nd percentile or better in each of his top four play types (spot up = 1.033 PPP, 72%; transition = 1.173 PPP, 74%; off screen = 1.128, 76%; P&R ball-handler = 0.921, 82%). He's also in the 64th percentile in isolation after that Penn State game, scoring 0.867 PPP ("good"). Teddy is above average at almost everything he does offensively. The man-to-man defense and turnover issues are a prob

  5. No one was “to be fair” to us when we had no Walker for much of the season. And no one was “to be fair” to us when our players had to sit out for a month mid-season. And no one is “to be fair” to us when our players struggle with post-Civid fatigue. And no one is “to be fair” to us when we play a game every other day (with a back-to-back slipped in there just for the heck-of-it).

    Why the hate

    These are the same people that would go up to him to try to get a photo with him after the game if we had a winning record in the Big Ten. * Correction...these people don't even attend the games; they get their hoops news from social media, look at our record, complain, then move on to something else.

    Fred Hoiberg and Co. recruited Teddy Allen, Delano Banton and Derrick Walker in the first class. The second class includes Trey McGowens--which also results in the signing of his five star brother. Next year's class, including that brother, is a top-25 class. We have a great start on 2022 with a highly-sought big. The fact that Delano couldn't play the first season and Derrick couldn't play the first season and a half is significant in difficulties that have occurred--not to mention the pandemic-induced, month-long shutdown. My vote and confidence on recruiting

  10. My first impression was that your first two paragraphs were a parody on some famous historical book/play/quote that I'm not well educated or well read enough to figure out. Then I kept reading and I really do think you've just hit a breaking point in your fandom. To each their own but I view my fandom as somewhere between eternal optimist and realist. I guess the one perspective I've learned over the past several years is that there is no point for me to live or die off of what a collection of 18-22 year olds do in a game or season. Sure, I get frustrated as most do on here but at the end

    I agree with this. Every year you hear stories about players in the Big Ten who have had lackluster careers who put it together in their senior year and lead their team to great things. Every. Year. Having high levels of roster turnover is, has been and always will be a recipe for disaster. You don't dump guys just because what's behind the curtain is almost always a repeat of what you had before with the guy already in your system. Sure, turnover is inevitable, but the more guys you can get to stay the better.

    Roby flirts with a triple double last night in a 30 point loss. 15 points 9 rebounds 7 assists. Good to see one of the good guys having success.

  20. Since returning from his one game suspension, Teddy has been a completely different and vastly improved player. Kudos to the coaching staff for sending the message and bigger props to Teddy for constructively receiving that message. We have seen other players take their imaginary bag of arrows and go home.

Not a good year to have to mesh a new team together with limited practice time and players who have sat out 1-2 years without playing a game. I was expecting more too but trying to be realistic. You guys realize Fred has not even been here 2 years right. The first year it was a miracle to get that many kids signed. There just were not that many kids available especially bigs so you take chances like Yvan. They were also already behind on this years class too which has been a disappo

    Back from the Pinnacle. It proved to be a real shot in the arm, so hopefully the game tonight will turn out to be the same for the basketball program. I thought I might be able to remain in one of the seats as a cardboard spectator but was a bit too meaty.

    I can't upvote this enough. Rarely is the replacement an upgrade. We need to start seeing more guys stay for 4-5 years. We have been a revolving door for players who spend 1 or 2 seasons here, and it seems to happen almost every year. Samari Curtis, Amir Harris, Nana Akenten, Kevin Cross, Jordy Tshimanga, Jeriah Horne, Bakari Evelyn, Tarin Smith, Jacob Hammond, Jervay Green, Dachon Burke, and Cam Mack. Now, I know some of those guys dug their own grave in some regard, and many wound up at lower level D1 schools, but that is still a list of fairly talented players who le

  26. And who should have been kept off Miles last roster? Miles was heading in to a major rebuild himself. The prized recruit that season is averaging 1 PPG this season at Pacific. There is a reason what was left of Miles roster none of them ended up at power 5 schools. And some are really struggling at mid major schools...check Brady Heiman and Karrington Davis. Nana is about the only productive player and even he’s shooting under 40%. This was/is a major rebuild and a crappy time to go thru it to boot with Covid. We need to hit some home runs and fast.

    Progress?

    Has any team in the history of college basketball had to play the kind of schedule we have played since we've returned from the pause due to covid? In arguably the toughest conference from top to bottom to boot. In what has to have been a physical and mental grind for the players, they have continued to compete hard every time they've stepped on the court. That alone gets a yes vote from me. Also, when you win a conference game with your leading scorer going scoreless and only playing 10 minutes due to 'Coach's Decision' shows progress. To me, our success this season was going to b

  30. No intel, no special insight, just a sense: Nebraska WBB has a chance to make a push that does good things for right now and moreso for the future. I'm a believer that the "big games" aren't the ones that keeps things from falling apart, but the ones that take you from a plateau to a newer peak. If Nebraska wins the last four here, and then 1 or 2 in the tournament, that's maybe enough to get in the NCAAs, but it's more importantly a big springboard into next year, and this team - its best players especially - could use that sense of momentum. And they're good enough to win the la

    Man, where do you start?

    Regression?!! We had a month-long no-practice hiatus in the middle of the season. Walker didn't get to play in the first half of the season, then played one game before getting Covid. A few other players also got Covid. Now, I know that every one of us geniuses on this board would unaffected in the slightest by a Covid infection. But for a young fella like Walker and other players in that same Covid boat . . . it shouldn't affect their performance or stamina in the slightest, especially when they are playing an actual game like only every other day. They played we

  34. Banton was really bad tonight. He plays way too tall to get by shorter, athletic guards. Even if other things fall were to fall in line, I don’t think we will be successful around here with him as a ball dominant point guard.

    One thing I would note about our style of recruiting is that for the most part when we're missing we aren't missing long term. In other words, when we whiff it's typically not going to be a 4-5 year problem.

  39. The disconnect I have is with jumping the gun on this staff's first full recruiting class, with a pandemic, with stopping for 30 days.. not having Walker for almost all year.. and we are supposed to be doing what??? On top of that against the league that is on its way according to Pomeroy as the most difficult EVER. Can we maybe wait until at least next year to place judgement on these guys? Please? I mean dont you think thats just a little bit reasonable?

  40. My 4 takeaways: 1. Cockburn gets away with so much pushing, it's nauseating. His first foul comes midway through the 2nd half...Yeah,ok. 2. Ayo carries the ball worse than Banton, yet never gets called for it. 3. Banton might be the worst FT/jump shooter/finisher for being 6'9 and a PG/SG that I've ever seen. I love the kid. He has some great skills. However, he is a huge liability in tight games late. His defense is atrocious as well when covering smaller guards. 4. Having said all that, what a great team effort.

  42. We were up 22-14 moving the ball and playing through the high post. These are the next 7 possessions: Allen turnover Allen missed forced shot Stevenson turnover Stevenson 1 of 2 free throw Webster miss floater Mayen turnover McGowens turnover No touches at the high post. Wisconsin now up one. It was just driving me nuts that we seemed to be playing so well and then proceeded to get one good possession over the next 7 times with the ball.

    Teddy

    Well, I think it's safe to say that Teddy isn't exclusively the reason for the lack of ball movement and offensive struggles. Wasn't any better or more consistent without him; the other guys just aren't as good as he is at scoring in a bad situation.
