    2021 Transfer SZN

    Seems like it's an issue that this would also seem to describe every single player currently on our roster

  3. I think all is well. I would have been fine if Fred didn't make any changes. Also think if you can add an NBA level coach to your bench, and still keep one of your most trusted basketball minds on your staff in some capacity - you take advantage. To your point, Fred is still at the stage where what ever he think is best, should be trusted and respected.

  4. Here's what I think about Breidenbach. I don't know if he's good enough to leapfrog Lat Mayen out of the gate. But I believe he is good enough that Lat will have to bring his "A game" in order to start ahead of Wilhelm. And he'll have to continually improve in order to keep that lead. And, if he doesn't, I believe Wilhelm will be good enough to give him a good run for his money.

  6. So disappointing. I had super high hopes for him. Never found his role... I worry that's his problem overall, he just doesn't have a role. Just not good enough at one or two things to showcase him, but good enough at a lot of different things you try to. But it doesn't work. Banton needs to stay. Time for him to develop and grow, not look for the easy way out. It will pay dividends for him to stay. And as much as I appreciate him and what he started to do at the end of the year, I'm totally fine with Thor moving on. It's just time.

    Robin gave some more clues on who this would be. He is in the transfer portal already and should make his decision by Friday (possibly). He also said it was no one that was mentioned in the thread that he was responding to. That eliminates Bolton. Robin also said it could be a high impact guy, if things break his way.

  8. I believe this team has the potential to finish somewhere between 7-9 in the Big Ten and make the NCAA Tournament. Should be able to get off to a good start next season and rack up some wins in the nonconference and head into conference play with momentum -Bringing back the core of major contributors from last season, so this team won't need to spend half the season just learning how to play together -Derrick Walker won't be suspended for half of the season -Another year of development for Andre after an impressive freshman season -Ad

    Welp, apparently our mystery player is not Bolton, or anyone else we've talked about. And Washut says this player is indeed already in the transfer portal. My next guess was going to Caleb Grill, but I wouldn't consider the Mountain West to be a high major conference. I got nothin'.

  13. Going into this past season, I had my doubts about whether we'd be improved at all, and I openly questioned why anyone thought we'd be any better in Hoiberg's 2nd season than we were in his first. For a traditional sunshine pumper, I was decidedly gloomy in my forecast. Some on here tried to rescue me with arguments as to why a virtually-completely overhauled roster in year 2 would be any better than a virtually-completely overhauled roster was in year 1. We know how that turned out. I'm going to take a cautiously optimistic approach this time around.

    Do you mind being a bit more specific if you are going to throw this stuff around on a message board? I don't doubt you at all, would just like to know more since you are speaking as though they are facts.

    That, and Arizona is still a premier program with a lot of advantages. Rebuilding Arizona would be reasonably quick and easy one would think. Lots of old Big Ten coaches have moved out to the southwest and had pretty successful ends to their careers there.

  26. Don't think so. They have both been mentioned on that board. Couple more clues. Not a former Big Ten player and will be a 2 or 3 here, not a point guard.

    OK Kate is gone.......

    So who will start next year ? Too early for predictions? Maybe but there's new predictions out there already...why not join the silly discussions. My first shot...Coach will go for some experience to start things going next season. Sam Issie Kendall Bella Ashley How the balance of the squad, the newbies, and recovered injured players play out.... will come into play soon. Markowski is a natural at her position of need in the middle, and has that B1G player mentality that her dad will provide her. So....The rest fit i

  31. Karl - That would be a nice front court. I would really like to see Weidner run the point. Weidner ran their offense mostly in HS. Have seen her make some great passes. Sam really is a natural two guard. Would allow a nice second unit with Scoggin, Coley, Porter, to lead the way.

    Hmm an odd take. It seems to me to be a perfect fit. A program building coach going to a school that needs its program built.

  34. I guess what I mean is that I believe Nebraska has the potential to make the NCAA Tournament and that they will be one of the last 1-2 teams from the Big Ten to get in. My assumption is that the Big Ten will get 7-9 teams in. If that's the case, then I believe Nebraska will finish in the 7-9 range. If the Big Ten is down enough that the conference only gets 6ish teams into the NCAA Tournament, then I believe enough teams would be taking a step back so that Nebraska would be able to finish in the 5-6 range in that scenario. I do not believe that there is much of a chance that the Bi

  36. Looks like a good hire. An excellent coach with NBA history that is most noted for 'player development.' With all the first and second year players on our roster, this looks like the 'right guy for the job.

    as long as no one transfers, i believe. coach was asked the question about transfers in her interview....paraphrasing, but, she said something along the lines the way things are in college basketball nowadays, you try to prepare for anything.

    I think Matt A does all the recruiting so having Loenser in theory improves the pitch by being able to sell having a guy who's worked to improve a laundry list of NBA players.

    Good for Tim-- Happy to see him land somewhere he was wanted. Tim's the type of coach that can make you want to like him, so the fact that he is already walking into a situation where is loved as a hire can only play to his benefit. SJSU just got a fan every time they aren't playing the Huskers. I hope, in a few years, he has the opportunity to take it to New Mexico.

    Did I see right, he's only 215 lbs? Hopefully while Andre and Walker continue to get the big minutes, "Nets" can hit Chipotle and the weight room for a year. Anyone know if he can make free throws? Looks like a great find, and a freshman to boot, hopefully he sticks around. Welcome to the Husker family "Nets"!

  45. I don't think there's any doubt that, when Keisei is in the game, Hoiberg will get him looks and he'll knock them down at a good clip. Our shooters have consistently gotten great looks game after game over the last two years. But, up until the 6 games or so this year, we couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. I just don't think we're going to play 12 guys significant minutes next year, or ever. And I'm not sure who Keisei supplants in the rotation, especially if we add another transfer guard as expected. That doesn't mean he won't ever play. But right now, I'd be pleasantly surprised if

    2021-2022 expectations

    I expect to be pissed off at the fans/posters who will inevitably build this team up to be something it's not capable of being in the offseason and who eventually turn into whiny crybabies during the season when the team fails to live up to their unrealistic expectations during the course of the season. That's what my expectations are for the 2021-22 season.
