    All of them are accomplished enough to slot higher than a middling Big West team IMO

    I mentioned in the HHCC thread that I have very low expectations for this season. So, it won't take much for me to be happy with what I see. Some reasons to be a little chill about last night's debacle: Hoiberg built an entire roster from scratch in a roughly 30-day stretch ... in the spring ... when things were pretty well picked-over These guys have never played together before They don't ideally have the types of skillsets HCFH would recruit if he had more time to build a team So you had to figure there would be bumps in the road We start a 17-year-old center who is younger than half of the high school seniors playing basketball in this country right now We have three true-freshmen in our regular rotation all of whom played in their first official college games last night Our starting PG is a only a sophomore, and a juco to boot, and it generally takes jucos at least a semester to adjust We only have two seniors on the entire roster So, we're young, inexperienced, and undersized this season. What were you expecting?

    I can rationalize with the best of them but I was expecting us, with our roster of guys who would be too good to play for UC Riverside, to be competitive last night.

    TRIGGER WARNING: LOTS OF NEBRASKETBALL LOSSES IN THIS POST. The masochist in me loves this sort of historical research. It's the same side of me that emerged last night after UC-Riverside went up by 15 and it was clear we weren't going to win. I started hoping every UC-R shot would go in just so we could point to this game as some sort of negative historical marker, something to measure our eventual success by. I know we're headed in the right direction, but I didn't expect the starting point to be so far back. So in that spirit, here are Nebraska's worst regular-seasons since the end of World War II, compared with what Nebraska would have to accomplish this year in 32-33 games to equal the win percentage: 1962-63 (6-19, .240, which would be 8-25 this year) 1963-64 (7-18, .280, or 9-23 this year) 1951-52 (7-17, .292, or 9-23) 1959-60 (7-17, .282, or 9-23) 1955-56 (7-16, .304, or 10-23) 1972-73 (9-17, .346, or 11-21) 1945-46 (7-13, .350, or 11-21) 1989-90 (10-18, .357, or 12-21) 1961-62 (9-16, .360, or 12-21) 1999-2000 (11-19, .367, or 12-20) And the only seasons under .400 this century: 2002-03 (11-19, .367, or 12-20) 2016-17 (12-19, .387, or 13-21) Our lowest conference win totals: Jerry Bush's 1963 team: 1-13 Doc's 2010 team: 2-14 Collier's 2003 team: 3-13 Nee's 1990 team: 3-11 Bush's 1956 team: 3-9 Harry Good's 1952 team: 3-7 Good's 1947 team: 3-7 Doc's 2012 team: 4-14 Nee's 2000 team: 4-12 Nee's 1996 team: 4-10 Nee's 1995 team: 4-10 Nee's 1989 team: 4-10 Nee's 1988 team: 4-10 Cip's 1973 team: 4-10 Bush's 1961 team: 4-10 Bush's 1960 team: 4-10 Good's 1953 team: 4-8 Good's 1951 team: 4-8 Again, this is pure masochism, but that side of me says, "If we're gonna be bad, let's be historically bad." Luckily, as with football, my optimistic self prevails. I think we can beat Wisconsin in football, and I think we can reach 11 wins overall and 5-6 in the conference in basketball. Go Big Red!

    Having said all of that above, there were definitely bright spots last night. Yvan is a load on the defensive end. Opposing bigs, so far, aren't getting deep in the paint. I've seen them lower their shoulders and try to back him in and he doesn't budge. Which is really good to see. And he scored 9 points last night on 4-6 shooting. He'll eventually learn how to use his body to create some space to make those shots inside happen. Cam Mack is looking really solid so far. Not the best shooting night last night, missed a couple at the rim, but was 40% from 3-point range, scored 11 and grabbed 9 boards. He'd have had more assists but his teammates weren't making a lot of shots. Except for the shooting last night, the jucos are playing better than typical for a transition-to-D1 season. I think the shooting will eventually come around and we'll regress to the mean. This was just a really off night offensively. But those two have a lot of talent, and you could see it. The first ten minutes, they looked like a team. As the season goes on and they settle in, I think we'll see more of those stretches and less of the trying-to-force-stuff-because-we're-behind-and-I'm-trying-to-catch-up-all-at-once stuff.

    It's a high risk procedure at the best of times. these aren't the best of times. failed fusions do generally lead to higher pain levels and cascading surgery events. the bigger problem you have no is the war on pain patients chapter of the drug war. I am dying because of that war, although it's taking me longer to croak than expected by about 3 years. And my diseases are of the spine. Since I work in the pain movement at national, our advice to anyone considering spinal surgery of any kind right now is to ensure that you have a plan for pain control after the procedure, especially if it fails. Because we're losing hundreds of patients that no longer have access to their pain medications after these procedures now, so make damned sure you have total confidence in your physician to back your medications. The worst case scenario is that your surgery fails, your pain increases, and you're left with nothing adequate to deal with it. And this is happening to thousands of our community members every single day. It's happening to me as well.

    I think he's definitely a liability at the 4. He doesn't have the lateral quickness necessary. I think he's less of a liability at the 5 if he can stretch the court for us at the other end. Cross might be a better option at the 4 than Kavas. In fact, I'd be very curious to see a linuep of Mack, Burke, Cheatham, Cross, and Yvan. I don't think we've seen the two kids play together yet. They kind of compliment each other offensively. Not sure if Cross is quite in shape enough for the 4 yet, but I really like his skillset there.

    I'm not as interested in the recruiting 'star' ranking as the dudes on the roster in how they perform on a nightly basis, including effort, heart & hustle. I'm prepared to see struggles but I never want to see a dude loaf or not give it his all in a ballgame in this 2019-20 campaign. I'd imagine neither do Fred, Doc, et al. GBR

    Thomas Allen was gone no matter what happened with Miles. Our roster if Miles had been retained would have challenged this one for guys who can't shoot.

    Glynn, Cope, JPJ and Isaiah coming off the books even if Miles is back (all 4 star or higher I believe), Allen might still be here. How we didn’t go dancing with all that talent? It still keeps me up at night. Starting 5 of all 4 & 5 stars!!!

    I think this is why they took their time filing for the waiver. I think they wouldve gotten it easily if they were fine with him classified as a junior. Much more concerned with getting him classified as a sophmore than playing in this years non con

    So Kavas' role should be limited those times when we might need a quick three. Run a couple of sets for him, and if he makes one or two, let him go until he doesn't. If he misses right away, limit the damage by getting him out ASAP.

    Some Notes: This group 3-11-22-24-25 gave up 14 points on 6 possessions, while only scoring 2 on six possessions. The starters 3-11-22-23-24 gave up 10 points on 19 possessions while scoring 18 on 19 possessions. This group 3-11-22-23-25 gave up 9 on 3 possessions while scoring 2 on 3 possessions this was based on me charting these possessions and I definitely could have made an error.

    I think Amy earlier in the summer workout said that she was behind because of the surgeries and stuff and that's why she's probably not playing as much when she gets up to speed she'll be ready to play more minutes. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk

    I'm feeling a little better today. I hope that game leaves a sour taste in our guys mouths. One nice thing that last night should show our guys is that nobody is going to lay over and die. Not one team will be a for sure win. We need to come out and play 40 full minutes each and every night.

    Yvan has tremendous upside. This season could be brutal, but he's going to come back next year an entirely different player, and potentially a difference maker. That drop-step (some people might call it something else) move he did to score is something few bigs on past teams could have executed. Have some patience. We have some really young contributors seeing their first college action. They're going to get better. One guy not to sleep on: Akol Arop. No, I'm not kidding. He's learning the game right now but he has athleticism in spades and he has really excellent length. Was watching him shooting in warmups and the kid has a pretty decent jump shot. If he gets that jumper down to the point where he can reliably hit 40% from deep (which I think is doable) he can be a 3-and-D guy for us because he can guard so many different positions. He's learning the game. Give him time. That jumper could get him on the floor.

    Thanks. Wasn't able to get to this last night. Last night was pretty unsettling. I don't think I expected things to feel the way they did. My wife and I were sitting at the game and commenting about how strange it was watching such a new product. The arena was the same. The jerseys were the same. The on the court issues we've seen year after year were the same. The people we were sitting around were the same, but nothing else was. I've never experienced a new season where almost every single player was new. We all have to relearn every single thing. I wasn't mentally prepared for that when I walked into PBA last night. I'm sure we'll get to the point where I'm comfortable with things again, but last night wasn't it...

    There is a lot of sentiment going around that this happens and things will be fine. You could say the same thing about crapping yourself at work. While this happens and things will be fine, you're still going to be known as the person who crapped themselves at work for a while. We are going to be the team that crapped themselves at work this season.

    nice statement about Grace. so glad she stuck with the huskers. was taken back a bit when i saw she was starting against Rogers St, but, then got to thinking it could be her only chance. unless injury bug hits (knock on wood) she probably isn't going to see very many minutes this season. think starting Grace was great by coach williams.
