    SIU vs. Nebraska pregame talk

    This World Herald article by Sam McKewon is in my thinking a very accurate depiction of where our our WBB program was at last year, is at now and where we may be going. Best newspaper article on the team in quite awhile. Can't wait for tomorrow's game. Hopefully the fans will fall in love with the new team chemistry and hustle and improve attendance. A winning season would be a big improvement. GBR

    Husker Signing Day

    So - first thing - I need you to hang out with me on a daily basis just hyping me up. Second, I actually agree with your hype here. I really think Xavier is special. If he has Glynn's toughness, I think he's a more athletic, explosive, better bodied version of GW. I think BH could be nice, but it will solely depend on if he's here to work and in the for the long haul or not. He has a lot of work to do.

    Mine's probably not as thorough or in-depth as yours. Illinois -- they just fired the guy many here wanted us to hire last time we hired a new coach. Miles be like Keith Richards looking around at all the "hot" coaches who've been fired and he still has a job. "Haha, MFers. I'm still here." Anyway, Illinois. There's a reason they sucked last year. Probably not all coaching. Probably same reason they'll continue to suck this year. Indiana -- hated Crean. Hated that they fired Crean. I want someone at Indiana to hate. Maybe it'll be the new guy. Anyway, they have the cool, candy-striper warmups. They might not be too bad this year. Iowa -- what is wrong with their coach? I give 'em 3-2 odds he strokes out sometime in the next 5 years. I remember this line from the movie "Teachers" where the principal is yelling at a male teacher who got a female student knocked up: "When we said to be a 'team player' we didn't mean to go out and make your own team!" That's kinda what McCaffrey has done. His best recruiting strategy appears to be continuing to get his wife pregnant. Maryland -- their mascot is a turtle. Michigan -- Crean's brother-in-law is turning them into a basketball school. Hate Crean. Can't stand his brother-in-law. But Beilein can coach and he has players who can play. Michigan St -- They have this guy named Izzo. He's not bad. I guess he's OK. They'll probably do alright this year. Minnesota -- I still can't believe their turnaround from 2 years ago to last year. I think it was smoke and mirrors. I think the real Minnesota showed up for their 1st round NCAA tourney loss to Middle Tennessee Southwest Immaculate Conception State College. Granted, Middle Tennessee was 30-4 going into it, but still. There's a long history of the offspring of big name coaches getting jobs based on who their dad is and crashing and burning. Waiting ... Northwestern -- NWU. NOT NU. We're NU. They are MFing NWU. And that's all I'm going to say about them until they accept the fact that we're NU, not them. Ohio State -- We have to sweep those douchebags this year. That's all there is to it. Penn State -- Little known fact: Their head coach is the bastard child of R. Lee Ermey, who, like Dean Smith and our very own @jimmykc, was born in Emporia, KS. That gives him some basketball chops by the associative property of multiplication. It's still Penn State. Purdue -- I mean, what can you say about Purdue? Rutgers -- New coach. Not that new. Same old roster. Their recruits aren't as good as they think they are. PG ain't bad. The juco kid we passed on is decent. Top 13 conference finish is not out of the cards for them. Wisconsin -- Their coach is Greg Gard. His middle initial is G. His parents clearly lacked imagination and he is NO Bo Ryan.

    I was thinking this morning... how much I would love a 2 day BTN Season Kickoff. Every game broadcast by BTN starting at 8 AM on the first day of the basketball season. I would totally watch! If you take everyones first games, the schedule could look something like this. Day 1 and Day 2 would look like... All Times CST 8 AM-- Rutgers Vs. CCNY 10:30 AM-- Maryland-- Stoney Brooke 1 PM-- Indiana-- Indiana State 3:30 PM-- Illinois-- Southern University 6 PM-- Purdue Vs. SIUE Edwardsville 8:30 PM-- Minnesota Vs. USC Upstate 11 PM-- Nebraska Vs. Eastern Illinois 8 AM-- Penn State Vs. Campbell 10:30 AM--Ohio State-- Robert Morris 1 PM-- Michigan-- Central Michigan (I had to exclude opener vs North Florida since they would have already played MSU) 3:30 PM-- Wisconsin-- South Carolina State 6 PM-- Northwestern Vs. Loyola Maryland 8:30 PM-- Michigan State Vs. North Florida 11 PM-- Iowa Vs. Chicago State

    I know what you (they) meant. I just don't buy into the notion. Last year has no relevance on this year other than in prognosticators perceptions of how good any team is.

    Husker Signing Day

    Ok, if we're breaking down players, thoughts on Wingett? I've been vocal in saying I want him here. I think he's got the game to play at this level and I think it'd be one heckuva story. I might be along on that island, but am I crazy to think he could be a contributor at this level?

    Jones, I can give you some hype, too. I watched a lot of extended highlight video of Brady on Hudl. The kid has some legit tools. Now, I can’t speak to his work ethic or attitude, but he seems to have more than adequate athleticism for a guy his size to play at this level. He also has a good looking jumper with 3-point range. Probably needs to work on consistency and accuracy, but he has the platform to build on.

    I love both of these pickups so much. Heiman has huge upside and is way ahead of his age in terms of body control and ball skills. He's the first legit 4-5 swing player since Walt, which really fits a need, IMO. Being able to play "small ball" with a 6'10" mobile player at the 5 can be a tremendous luxury. I've said this before: Xavier is my favorite prospect Miles has recruited. He's a Thomas Allen level recruit. What I love the most about him is that he is, without question, a TRUE point guard through and through, and an elite one at that. He is extremely athletic and D1 strong, and his IQ is through the roof in terms of court awareness and setting up teammates. He puts crazy pressure on the defense. He and Allen at the 1-2 are going to be one of the best combos in the country as upperclassmen. Unguardable. This kid is an absolute coup.

    Dot Commentary: Who is the Big Ten basketball sleeper team? http://btn.com/2017/11/09/dot-commentary-who-is-the-big-ten-basketball-sleeper-team/ Who is the Big Ten basketball sleeper this year? Dienhart: Nebraska Last year, we saw Minnesota emerge as a sleeper team, going from eight to 24 wins and earning an NCAA tourney bid. This year, keep an eye on Nebraska. Tim Miles has one of his most talented teams yet, complete with plenty of athletic ability and length. Keys will be better defense and limiting turnovers. In the end, don’t be shocked if the Cornhuskers fight their way into the upper half of the Big Ten and earn the program’s first NCAA bid since 2014. Nebraska is led by senior guard Evan Taylor. And fellow guard Glynn Watson, Jr., who is poised to lead the team in scoring. He also needs to be a leader. Keep an eye on Miami (Fla.) transfer guard James Palmer, Jr., along with freshman guard Thomas Allen, whom Miles is excited about. Jack McVeigh is a sweet shooter. Best of all: Georgetown transfer Isaac Copeland will be eligible right away this fall after receiving an NCAA waiver. He is a former five-star recruit who will help inside. Add it all up, and Nebraska is going to sneak up on people this season.

    Part of the rebounding thing according to Miles was Nebraska just got outworked. Northwood had some guys that were flying around every time a shot went up. I did see some guys get pushed around inside which isn't a good look, but I'm sure Miles showed those guys the tape and lit into them a bit. But a lot of it too was the fact that Northwood missed a ton of shots, and a lot of them were bricks from the outside which are hard to rebound because they ricochet so far out. Northwood beat Nebraska's guards to a lot of long rebounds, again a hustle thing. Don't necessarily think it was a physical incapability that will cripple the team long-term.

    They go 6'2" (Devonte' Graham), 6'3" (Malik Newman), 6'5" (Lagerald Vick), 6'8" (Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk) and 7' (Udoka Azubuike) in their starting lineup with 6'5" (Marcus Garrett), 6'8" (Mitch Lightfoot) and 6'10" (Billy Preston) off the bench. Azubuike is a monster at 280 pounds but Mykhailiuk is a guard playing power forward in their starting lineup. I think involving Azubuike in pick-and-rolls with Watson or Palmer and making him guard in space and going at Mykhailiuk would be wise. Newman is the 5-star recruit who transferred from Mississippi State and is a pure scorer. Graham is a great shooter and usually does a good job of distributing the ball without turning it over. Haven't ever been overly impressed by Vick. Lightfoot has been pretty disappointing for them. 5-star recruit Billy Preston is an interior scorer and rebounder. Marcus Garrett is a 6'5" 4-star combo-guard. Based on Self's recent history with his 5-star freshman big men, hard to know how much Preston is going to play or how consistent he will be. It's basically a 7-man team because they don't want to play Lightfoot more than they have to. Those starters are going to play a lot of minutes.

    uneblinstu's post scrimmage chatter

    I don't know. I'm pretty relaxed on the freshmen playing idea given how successful Miles has been in recruiting. Playing freshmen is also a recruiting plus for a lot of talented players, and Miles has shown he is willing to do that. There isn't a ton of risk involved in TM saying he's "ok" with that decision. He's not going to give anyone charity minutes.

    Thor's a little different. He's here to learn to play ball and get a contract in Europe. Doesn't make sense to redshirt. I'd hope Nana sees the benefit of the redshirt season.

    Palmer is definitely a surprise--an enormous, fringe NBA talent surprise. Amazing get. Allen is exactly what I thought he would be. He has an unteachable talent for scoring the ball and will go down as one of our best guards ever. I'm very encouraged by what I see with Copeland. He's got three games under his belt and has been contributing more and more each game. 12pts on 5-12 shooting isn't bad. I think his 3p% will climb and have no problem with him taking that shot. I'm thrilled that his athleticism is the same level as it was when he was healthy in prior seasons. His full stat line: 12pts, 4rbs, 3st, 1blk, 0 TOs is pretty darned good for game three. I think he'll get better and better.

    How much will our WBB defense improve?

    It'll improve in part because the offense gets better. If Nebraska's not turning the ball over 17 times per game, creating easy scoring opps for the opponents, it'll help.

    This type of jump in reasoning is typical of today's political discourse. That means your comment lacks reasoning and makes an illogical assumption creating a strawman that is easy to attack. What I said was based on my watching the open practice where they did post work and then open scrimmage, Duby showed better post moves, put himself in better post position and finished better. This small sample size means that is not conclusive evidence of anything but that is my first initial opinion based on what I have seen. I'm reasonable enough to realize that just because something happens once, that doesn't mean it is true in all cases. I will also use that logic when dealing with your future posts. I won't hold your truncated logic in this situation against you going forward and will judge each post on their own merit. No, he should not start. Though it may be close, based on my observations and his past history at Winthrop he has a higher foul rate than Jordy. Starting him might actually decrease the amount of minutes he would be able to play in a game. If he was a hands down, no questions asked better offensive and defensive player than Jordy then he should start. His history shows that he is a better shot blocker than Jordy but when you factor in the fouls, not a major upgrade there. I have already stated I think Duby is farther ahead in his post game (albeit on a very small sample size) but I'm unsure about his rebounding and I have noticed that right now over half of his ball screens are offensive fouls. As a coach, even if I rated Duby out as slightly ahead of Jordy in all facets of the game I would still start Jordy. The two are close and there is no obvious upgrade, Jordy hopefully has a bigger potential upside, and he is going to be here for two more years. That gives Jordy the push. Now you might find my response "douchy," but I have answered your question directly and given logical, basketball related reasons for my opinion. I have been on the board for many years and you will see that my post count is relatively low. That is because I usually avoid chit-chat and prefer to talk about specific basketball issues. My preference is on fundamentals and strategy. I have read NUStudents posts for over a decade now and though many times I don't agree with them and find many of them negative, when pushed, he can give logical arguments for his opinions. (I guess I do have to admit that I posted an entire imaginary discussion one summer on the old board based on if people talked to each other in the real world like they do on discussion boards. If I remember correctly I gave NUStudent an ugly girlfriend in that one so I suppose I should lay off at this point.) This little foray demonstrates why I prefer to avoid this type of thing.

    Good Article HUD. Thanks for Posting. I'm glad she chose Nebraska. I think Lincoln is a great place and one of the best kept secrets for student-athletes.
