  2. Thunder came first. Thanks to @jimmykc for bringing this to the Board's attention! Though I am in Lincoln, I probably won't be able to get to every UNL game. But at the games that I do attend, you bet I'll still be in the hard hat and dancing if possible!

  4. Prior to 9/11, my military career wound down to a slow, gradual stop. I decided not to "re-up" as it were. Didn't have the fire in my belly. Like Gaylord Perry, I felt like I'd maybe stuck around beyond my "sell by" date and it was time to hang up the cleats. Unlike Perry, I didn't notch 300 wins. I had decided to quit instead of retire. If I stuck around longer, I knew I'd feel compelled to hang around until I got "my 20" and I just didn't want to do that. Your superiors are often assholes in the Army, and the higher you climb in the ranks, the more likely it is that you become the asshole.

  5. Crazy thing, as much as I loved Yvan and thought he was a great kid (and he was and is a great kid), he wouldn't have caught those passes. And if he had managed to snag the pass, he wouldn't have been able to score the ball. Derrick can do that. And I think Eduardo can too. That's going to help move that needle I've been talking about. Net effect of a whole bunch of little things. This is one of those little things that, added together, could make a big difference.

  9. I'm finding it difficult to come up with a rotation because so many players have a really high ceiling but also a really low floor. -Will Keon look more like a former top 50 recruit, or like the guy who couldn't crack the rotation for a 5-14 DePaul? -Will Keisei shoot his way into major minutes, or will he require a year to adjust to the American game? -Is Wilcher's game well-rounded enough to play major minutes? -Did Lakes just need a season to adjust to high level competition? I think we can clearly write down Verge, McGowens (x2), Walker, and Kobe as g

  18. There is more music out there today than ever before. He's not asking for Fleetwood Mac here, he's asking for someone of similar pull who would provide the relatively insignificant boost to recruiting that doesn't have a domestic violence section in his or her wikipedia page. From what I can tell, we accomplished that when we brought in Rick Ross.

  19. You focus on his downfalls but don’t give any light to the money he gives to his community where he turned an abandoned school into a community center to help keep kids off the street and get jobs for adults and the amount of money he donates to charity to help people that suffer from PTSD and mental health. Plus the amount of stuff he donated to prisons during the pandemic to help all workers for cleaning supplies and masks etc.

  20. @aphilso1 One point I'd make about Keon and Depaul is that he joined them mid-year. He was originally a 2021 recruit, just like Bryce. According to ESPN's rating, he'd have been a top 50 kid in the nation in the 2021 class. That's this year's freshmen. When he joined Depaul, they'd already gone through summer workouts. Fall conditioning. Pre-season practices. And several games. He's joining an established rotation, going in there cold as a high school senior. I wouldn't judge him at all by what he did at Depaul.

  21. I understand that everyone would rather do it with 'Home-Grown' kids. But Fred Hoiberg is not letting the fact they're opting to go out-of-state faze him in the least. He has assembled what is probably one of the most talented teams most of us have ever seen and is recruiting more top talent than ever before.

  23. Unoffically visited Lincoln back in June. 6'4 Shooting Guard. 4 Star recruits and #76 player in the Class of 2023 per Rivals. Top 2023 player in the state of Oklahoma. Plenty of Nebraska ties here. Could be a big time offer. Now he gets his own thread to go along with it.

  26. I am in the camp that believes Breindenbach is being vastly underrated, underapprecated and undervalued by our fan base. This dude was highly rated for a reason. He is going to earn substantial playing time this year. The kid knows how to play team ball and knows how to play his role. Just my very humble opinion.

  33. I wanted Jasen to be a Husker, just like Traudt and Sallis and Hepburn. Not only are they talented but they are home grown. Why the latter matters to me is basically a pride thing I guess in that such talent has been few and far between over the years and that talent has rarely ended up at NU. Oh well. I wish him and the others the best of luck except for when they play NU. Ultimately what I care about the most is for Nebraska basketball to become relevant in the B1G, meaning upper half finish more often than not and of course, getting to and winning in the NCAA tournament on a con

    Do these passes come with free valet service that warms your car up at the 5 minute mark in the 2nd half so you can leave the game early to beat traffic?

  38. I think Wilcher is going to have guaranteed minutes for three reasons: 1. He has legit experience, can shoot it, and is said to be a good defender. 2. He has good weight/strength for the B1G. 3. Little bro is going to be watching how we use him closely, and that dude may be our most important recruit ever. I love Keon's upside and I think he'll show flashes this year, but I agree that squeezing him in there might be difficult for extended minutes. He's listed at 170lbs, but he looks like he has Petteway/Palmer upside. Main difference is those two dudes got their weight up over

  39. Keon was a higher rated prospect than Ed Morrow or Glen Watson; there is a pretty good chance when it's all said and done he'll have a fairly successful college career. Really he has the sort of package that likely makes him a NBA prospect in the future. The thing about Ed Morrow and Glen Watson though was that we had a need for their skillsets the day they walked on campus. What makes me wonder about Edwards playing time is whether his scoring ability is high level enough along with his other skills to pry away many minutes from some of the other guys on the roster. Take a look at wh

  40. Highly unlikely Derrick and Eduardo will ever be on the court at the same time. In Hoiberg's 4-out (we also ran a ton of 5-out last year), there are two slots, two wings and a guy in the post. Derrick would be in the slot opposite the point guard where he'd be running pick and pops (Lat, Trevor, Thor, Cross, Kavas and Teddy have all been in this spot the last two years), and coming off flare screens on the perimeter. This doesn't fit his skillset at all, as it's imperative that the player in this spot is at least a threat to shoot, to keep the floor spaced so there's room for backdoor cuts and

    Many years ago, back before PBA was even up for a vote, @nuled2dance, @unl and I said to each other, I hope one day it will be hard to get a ticket to NU hoops. At the time, it just wasn't the case. Frankly, there wasn't a need for season tickets... But when the construction of PBA was approved, I decided to get season tickets, hoping I'd get first shot at tickets in the new building. Turns out my hunch was right.

  48. We're not trying to outrebound teams. It's great if we do but it's not our focus in terms of team building nor execution. We're trying to outshoot teams and not turn the ball over. Shooting was still an issue but the turnovers might have been THE issue. Seems like you could chalk those issues up to inconsistency from our ball handlers/PGs. "Did we address our PG issues?' has to be high up on the list of burning questions for this season.
