    Lost this game on defense. We gave up 42 points in the first half to a depleted Northwestern squad that hasn’t been able to score all year. I can handle us being bad. I can handle us being erratic and inconsistent. We have all new guys who haven’t played together, or in a Power 5 conference. That’s to be expected. It would be strange NOT to be inconsistent under the circumstances. But I can’t handle piss poor effort. Which is what we got today. Watch the film, especially the first half, and see the lackadaisical close outs on the 3s. Token waving of the arms like damn ballerinas. Matador flat-footed defense on some drives. Passivity all over the place. Just a pathetic, disgraceful effort on defense the first half.

    … tape them and use fast forward when necessary to avoid stress. That way the dud games can go by quite pleasantly without using an expensive bottle of Nyquil, and the good ones can provide many replay highlights. With that in mind, I plan to attend a matinee of "1917" this afternoon with two sons and a grandson and watch the game at my leisure. I'll let you know how I like the movie.

    I'm sad. We just can't continue to play to the level of the competition. Goodness, we made that team look like a to 25 team in the first half.

    Yeah. There's a big difference -- some people forget or don't understand -- between where a guy is now and where he could be down the line. Yvan could be a HS senior right now. Heck, there are probably plenty of HS juniors roughly his age. And if he was a HS junior or senior right now, he'd probably be getting tons of recruiting attention from traditional powers. But, as a college freshman, you can see a lot more of where his growth needs to come from and where he needs to develop. And pointing it out doesn't nullify any of that about how good he'd look if he was a senior in HS somewhere.

    To be fair, I dont know many current JR/SR in high school that would fair much better. And the ones that would, wont be coming to Nebraska any time soon and will also only be in college for a year. The lumps he is taking this year will do wonders for him the next three years.

    Excellent choice on Breaker Morant. Excellent. Love that movie. Nobody has mentioned "Midway" yet. "Platoon." "We Were Soldiers." "Hurt Locker." "American Sniper." "Heartbreak Ridge." Back when I was in the Army, we loved quoting "Heartbreak Ridge": "This is the AK-47 assault rifle. It's the preferred weapon of our enemy. It makes a distinctive sound when fired at you." Boy wasn't that the truth.

    I don't understand the complete abandonment of Green. I admit I know very little compared to Coach but it still seems odd. If this lack of playing time continues I don't expect to see him on the roster next season. Perhaps that is what the staff is doing in order to get a better player? I'm always interested in roster upgrades.

    Closeouts on 3s kill us. I know it's probably all our guys at some point, but there was one by Charlie that was replayed, and he didn't even get his hands above his waist. That kind of thing you teach elementary and junior high kids. We need to bring more consistent effort on D.

    Fast forward a year

    Watched a few of Lat’s JUCO games. Love how the kid plays. He’s very under control and his points are extremely efficient. He takes open shots (and makes them), runs the court and moves without the ball extremely well, always tries to rebound, has a very quick first step, and is a generally unselfish player. I think he has a little bit of work to do with his perimeter defense when guarding smaller guards on switches, but he’s very adequate guarding the 3 or 4. I think he’ll split minutes with Cross at the 4. Cross is a better 1o1 and post player. Lat is a much better shooter from deep and at the line. They will compliment each other well and may actually be able to play at the same time in some scenarios. Love the pickup. Cam Banton - Burke Allen - Thor Lat - Cross Stevenson - Walker/Yvan My guess right now...

    They rolled out a pretty huge lineup. I guess I didn’t see that bad of an effort as much as I saw pretty well designed plays and guys who were tall enough to get their shot. If we were playing percentages, those were the shots we wanted them to take. I would’ve like to see our bigs hedge out of those screens a bit more, but the second half looked basically the same to me, and they shot like they normally do in the 2nd. Not doubting what you observed though.

    Why would we have the same defensive game plan against NW as Iowa? NW didn’t have Garza. Iowa was a game plan. Today was a lack of effort. Contest the damn 3s. We went half-heartedly through the screens and waived our arms a little.

    I thought Northwestern was about as talented as we were. I didn’t think the first and second halves were much different other than NW shot at their normal rate in the second half when we beat them by 10. They couldn’t miss in the first. Our defense wasn’t great, but it was a similar game plan to Iowa. If Iowa would’ve shot 50% from 3, we’re down by 15 at least at half to them as well. It seems we’re going to take our lumps with our opponents shooting threes this year, and fair enough. I also think it’s a little ridiculous Jervay can’t spell Cam for a couple minutes a game. They’re running him into the ground. There is no such thing as an average shooting night for Burke is there? He is strictly brilliant or abysmal.

    We deserved three free throws at the end. Now whether we make all three is seriously doubtful, but even if he doesn’t we get the ball one more time only down the one possession.

    Agreed. I can't tell if I expect us to be better next year or it's just blind hope. But I pray this is the last year of the nebrasketball moto: there's always next year.

    Looks like I made a good decision. 1917 deserves to make my top 5 and my (fast forward) view of the game makes me feel like I didn't miss much pleasure by attending the movie. Methinks we could title the rest of NU's season " Saving Private Green".

    Good point. It was his left elbow. But that pushed his guide hand through the ball hence the shot hit going basically straight up in the air

    Valiant comeback. (Compare with the home loss to Rutgers, for instance.) Dug too deep of a hole. This is one we can definitely learn from and grow from. It's tough to win on the road in the Big Ten conference. Just ask Purdue. And Iowa.

    Absolutely. By the way, his brother Timmy is a 6-6 forward for Utah. He is averaging 21.1 ppg and 7.9 rpg. Shooting 50% FG, 77% FT. I suspect we got a really good one in Teddy Allen. I'm excited to see what he can do here.

    2019-2020 KenPom Rankings Thread

    I got bored at work this afternoon, and as we pass the midway point of the season, I was curious about how things were going among the first-year coaches in Power 5 conferences so I thought I'd take a peek on KenPom to see how they stack up and I ended up writing a little article. For your entertainment, here's what I came up with: The 2019 College Basketball coaching carousel produced one of the most impressive crops of new coaches among Power 5 schools in recent memory, and right away several names jumped out among the national media as being home run hires. Buzz Williams, Nate Oats, Fred Hoiberg and Eric Musselman being among the most highly regarded, with Juwan Howard being the late addition who seemed to stand head and shoulders above the rest as well as the one most well situated for early success. Now that we've reached the midway point of the season, how are things shaping up? Buzz and Fred have certainly stumbled, Oats and Musselman have impressed and Juwan, just as many expected, is holding court at the top. Here is a brief synopsis of how things are going at all 10 of the Power 5 schools with first year coaches. All rankings and numbers come courtesy of Ken Pomeroy https://kenpom.com Alabama: Nate Oats #50 (8-6) Alabama’s first year coach Nate Oats has assembled an absolute murders row for his schedule so far (#43 non con and #26 SOS overall) and the team’s record is indicative of that schedule. This Crimson Tide team is battle-tested and should not be intimidated by any team they face in the SEC. They will not have a gaudy W-L record when the dust settles, but they will also have a strong case for an NCAA berth even as a sub-20 win team. Pull off an upset here or there against an Auburn or Kentucky and they’ll be a lock. But if for some reason they fall to the NIT, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them win it. Arkansas: Eric Musselman #33 (12-2) The second most impressive job among first season coaches belongs to coach Musselman. Arkansas hasn’t really played anyone of note besides #28 LSU (L) and at #42 Indiana (W). But what they have done, is win. Their schedule strength is respectable but not impressive, and they look to rack up a mighty win total. But even so, Arkansas is a team that (while they look to be a NCAA lock at the moment) seems destined for the play-in round in Dayton. Cal: Mark Fox #189 (7-8) Cal has played one of the stronger non-con schedules in Power 5 this year, and they have the KenPom ranking and record to show for it. Their best win is against #135 Fresno State but they’ve also suffered losses to #132 Boston College and #149 Santa Clara. Cal is a prohibitive underdog in each of their remaining games, so breaking even double digits in wins seems like a long shot for the Bears. No postseason is likely. Michigan: Juwan Howard #19 (11-4) Easily the best start of the bunch, Michigan has reeled off a series of super-impressive wins against #9 Gonzaga, #20 Iowa and #22 Purdue while only losing to KenPom #3, #6, #16 and on the road against #29 Illinois. The Wolverines may not contend for a Big Ten title, but they are a stone cold lock for the NCAA tournament. They look like a 6-8 seed team as of now. Nebraska: Fred Hoiberg #138 (7-8) Shockingly embarrassing losses to #220 UC Riverside, #151 Southern Utah, #156 George Mason and #211 North Dakota are only somewhat balanced out by wins against #22 Purdue and #20 Iowa. Fred’s team do look like a bunch that is just starting to get some things figured out, but it’s likely too late for them to have any hope of any kind of postseason play this year. The Big Ten is an absolute nightmare, and 3-4 wins out of the remaining 16 games would be an astonishing accomplishment. Texas A&M: Buzz Williams #164 (7-6) Texas A&M may be the most disappointing of the group. Like Nebraska, the Aggies have some head-scratching losses, and unlike the Huskers, there isn’t really a single marquee win in the bunch. With SEC play getting underway, wins are going to be few and far between, it’s looking likely the Aggies will miss the postseason. UCLA: Mick Cronin #120 (8-7) The Bruins have played a pretty weak schedule to date, the exception being a 13 point loss to Michigan State in Maui. They have a couple of semi-embarrassing losses (#141 Hofstra, #278 Call State Fullerton and #147 Washington State) and one semi-impressive win at #43 Washington. CBI may be the only hope for postseason for UCLA. Vanderbilt: Jerry Stackhouse #126 (8-6) Vandy has put together a pretty unremarkable first half, their wins coming against mostly +200 and +300 KenPom teams. But they also don’t have any embarrassing losses either. The meat of their schedule is about to hit however, and there is most likely no post season for the Commodores this year. Virginia Tech: Mike Young #61 (11-4) Virginia Tech has gotten off to a sneaky-good start at the midway point. Their wins are against just the #351 Non-con schedule, but they have a decent win against #70 Syracuse and a fantastic win against #3 Michigan State. Their losses are no embarrassment either, coming to #36, #32, #8 and #1. The Hokies are looking like a solid NIT team right now with NCAA bubble being a legit aspiration. Washington State: Kyle Smith #147 (10-6) The Cougars are racking up wins at a pretty impressive rate, until you take a look at their strength of schedule (#347 Non-con and #340 overall). They’ve only played two teams ranked ahead of #120 UCLA, a loss at home against #79 USC and a neutral site win against #92 New Mexico. The schedule strength flips in the second half with just two of their remaining 15 games against sub-100 ranked teams. There is a strong possibility of just 1 more regular season win for the Cougs. Postseason play is an extreme long shot.
