    OP has a weird, and some might think, unhealthy obsession with Teddy Allen. Also, a bad habit of cluttering up the board with constant new threads finding ways to mention Teddy Allen. Here's a tip for anyone who thinks it might be a good idea to click on the button labeled "Start new topic"...don't. Just don't. There's almost always already a relevant topic on the board where one can post their thoughts. There's already at least two current threads OP could have posted his thoughts in that would serve to move discussion forward. Starting new threads to post a random thought then never following up is a strong indicator of troll activity and whenever we have a new member that comes in and starts a bunch of new threads I'm always very leery. And just for the record, @Husker Hoops Penitent seems like an okay person. I don't really have a beef with his Teddy Allen obsession per se, I just have hope that he will be a more active participant in the community's discussion rather than forcing everyone to participate in topics only he's interested in. This is just a pet peeve of mine. I wish there was a minimum post requirement for starting new threads here.

    I think we need to start expecting more of our guys. Not saying we should expect 20 wins or even that we should have expected them to win today. However we have to expect them to shoot better, play hard the whole game, not fall behind by 30, ect. We can’t just sit back the ENTIRE year and say “well we haven’t played together that much, well it’s year one, etc. I don’t think it’s right to let the players or Fred off the hook for losses like we saw in our first two games or for being behind 40-9.

    Serious question...when Creighton vacates this win in a few years, will this retroactively impact the 2019-2020 HHC prediction contest?

    Tim Miles has a new gig!

    On a day like today, coming here to bash a guy that hasn’t been our coach in 9 months, got us our first NCAA tournament appearance in so many years I don’t remember, got us our first draft pick since I don’t remember, and was an overall great guy and ambassador for the program as one of your first posts is a good way to make one think you might be wearing blue today.

    I'm not buying the "whole team is new" argument. This is the reality of college basketball and there are a ton of teams with huge turnover who wouldn't fall behind Creighton by 30.

    To the Husker community, and 49r in particular- I meant no harm by starting a new thread and will try to participate more in current threads. I must confess a weakness for Husker outbursts of that nature. As for my obsession with Allen, it definitely is that, and quite likely unhealthy. Consider it a form of P.T.S.D. at seeing the rare few local players who could likely reverse the trend of Husker basketball's historic underachievement sign with other schools. But I will go one step further: the whole notion of a fifty-four year old man caring about the on-court results of late-teen-early twenty year old men I don't know, playing a game I never played competitively is weird. As for the oblique intimations that I am a troll are unfounded. I'm quite sure I would score in the upper 80th percentile in any reasonable survey of Husker basketball history, but as I am not as seasoned as 49r in message board protocols it seems fair to assume. That said, now go get Teddy Allen!

    Pouting your way into the lineup isn't going to cut it at this school nor should it. If Arop or Easley end up in the rotation it will because they earned their way in

    Teams have roster turnover, that's NCAA basketball in 2019, but after a trip to Italy and eight games of the season, blaming 30 point deficits on newness is disingenuous, It's lack of talent, lack of effort, lack of strategy.

    Leaning toward not winning another game, even if we don’t come back in this one. Let’s do our part to tank Creighton’s SOS & NET rankings. (Hey, if you can’t find something to cheer for, try to bring everyone else down with you...)

    Well fellas, this sucks. I work with a bunch of CU Alums in Omaha and work won’t be fun on Monday. I will just say this. Somewhere, somehow, Nebraska male athletes don’t compete with as much fire as other schools. I know that’s a big generalization, but look at Marcus Zegarowski and Shereef Mitchell. Those guys are playing 120% full out offensively and defensively. Their effort can’t be questioned. Most of our guys look like they’d rather go back to the “just got done with the scrimmage now waiting for Rick Ross to perform” memory. You can say it’s a transition year or a rebuilding year all you want, but that doesn’t mean the players should come out tucked and defeated within the first few minutes. My CU alum coworkers all told me this was a massive rebuilding year for CU, I think they only have 7 available scholarship players today. i didn’t expect to win, but I did expect more effort and fight.

    My expectations of the team this season aren't derived from the score of the game. 17% shooting for much of this game isn't acceptable from any Division 1 player.

    The average Nebraska basketball fan isn't a fan of Nebraska basketball. So they'll continue to judge Hoiberg and yet not watch more than 20 minutes in an entire season.

    He will get his time, especially because it is Husker Basketball. Can't judge the dude on anything that happens this year, with this roster.

    I would be surprised if there isn't another player who transfers by the end of the year, at least. When Coaches with Hoiberg's ability and expectations field a team this bad, or perhaps "incomplete" yet there are scholarship players who don't see playing time it usually portends roster upheaval. I have always used Kansas as the measure of a healthy program. I can't recall ever seeing a scholarship freshman non-contributor stick around more than a couple of years before transferring- usually they leave after their forgettable freshman season. Scholarships are golden and if one aims for real success then seeing a man perpetually riding the bench is alarming. I am not saying improvement through the years isn't to be expected but rarely does anyone go from next to no minutes as freshmen on a bad team to any kind of large contribution in the next couple of years. I certainly can't recall any at NU- perhaps someone else does. Nevertheless an example cited likely proves the "rule" In addition to (hopefully) Teddy Allen, NU needs two great re-bounders next season to make significant improvement so Curtis' defection may be viewed as addition by subtraction. Now we'll see if Abdelmassih is worth the high salary. (I think he is but the verdict is out....)

    Hey, maybe this is like the Deverell Biggs situation and this is the spark the team needs to make their NCAA Tournament run (or win 4-5 games in conference)

    Without a doubt Creighton is a rivalry and it should be now. Like it or not they are a Power 6 conference, legit tourney team most years type of program right down the road. The hate is real. Iowa is/will be our main Big10 rival with Wiscy close behind. I don’t like the TO and OU comparison. Hoops you play a lot more games and your conference rivals twice a year, so no one game is make or break. I do think Miles got a lot of benefit winning last year at least in Omaha but obviously not enough to overcome the melt down.

    They’ve won 8 out of 9, have been way more successful overall, feel superior in every way, yet somehow every year convince themselves that they are disrespected and come out with a chip on your shoulder. Say what you want about the whole douche bag culture that surrounds and is Creighton basketball, but they somehow get that strategy to work.

    No offense taken. I work with 5 CU alums that go to the games and are more than just an average fan. i guess they thought with Krampl leaving and Epperson rehabbing (before he got hurt) they were in for a rebuilding year. Let’s not forget Zegarowski went from a guy who was decent to playing like his hair is on fire. Some of their sentiment came from their perception of being severely undersized, especially for the Big East. Frankly, I don’t care about CU. I just know I’m buying the office donuts Monday...

    Just as a college basketball fan in general, we're making Creighton look like a great team. We also made Georgia Tech look like a good team. But in reality Creighton is an average team this season and Georgia Tech is a bad team. This is embarrassing.

    Maybe Ray Gallegos. He averaged 13 MPG as a true freshman on a 2 - 14 team. Became a good player after spending 4 years here.

    You were the first one banging that drum! You might be right, but it's hard to know which came first the chicken or the egg. Was Curtis mad because he wasn't playing, or was he not playing because he was already checked out.

    Had no inside info, but about the only thing Samari wasn’t doing was on Wednesday was holding a sign that says “I’m out.” I’d be a little upset about a few things too. 1. Early this season, HCFH said multiple times that he wanted to find more time for Curtis but kept going to the same guys. 2. Kavas, as mentioned in my previous post, is basically the same player as Curtis in that he is a 3 point guy. 3. On a team that was struggling shooting and wasn’t playing very good D, there isn’t really a reason he shouldn’t have had at least an opportunity.

    I really don't buy this. Creighton is easily the most brought up team on this board. The switching of conferences essentially killed all rivalries prior to 2012. If these guys aren't our rival, then no one is our rival.
