    OWH article

    Another Omaha World Hearld article in today's paper. Mostly about Cain, and her perspective on team. She said it pretty plainly, poor chemistry developed on last years team....some weren't happy with playing time, etc. Didn't go into details really, but it isn't hard to figure out. She cleared the air essentially, But she's very happy with the "new" team. All the girls are getting along fine and it's refreshing to have everyone on the same page. With a common goal to improve the team, and work together. So it just may well be a fun team again. Like every season, it will be fun to watch....there will be lots of changes and newbies to blend into a working tram. Maybe more so than some years.... but Cain seems to be pretty happy about what's happening. She taking a new leadership role and seems to enjoy it.

    Think Yvan as slimmed

    Yvan was one of the brightest spots on the 2019-20 squad, particularly at only 17 years of age. He seems to be improving his physique to become a legit B1G dude, and I couldn't be more excited to see how much he brings to the table for the upcoming season. With several other taller players on the team in 2020-21, it could provide the ability to mix-and-match much better based on opponents' personnel as opposed to sticking Yvan on the "tall guy"!

    After experiencing a roller coaster first season in college basketball, Nailah Dillard was looking for a new basketball family in a safe and consistent place she could call home.

    Not at Creighton - they make your family wealthy with a $100,000 job AND they award a scholarship to your kid.

    VIRUS

    I think all sports going forward are going to look a lot different from what we have been used to. So Sad. This Fricking virus sucks and now you can't even turn to sports for any relief.

    Truth. If the Big Ten is in trouble, then the whole damn thing will crumble into dust. In other words, I don't think this will affect the stability of the Big Ten much if at all.

    On what’s been a very disappointing day for all Husker sports fans, I can’t say I’m terribly surprised. Now is the time to hunker down for the collective good, ride this out & hopefully come out the other side scarred but smarter. Oh, & much thanks for the “props” thrown out to fellow Superior alum Ed Weir...

    I see the reports that the NFL is watching what college football does with great interest ... not because they are looking for ideas with how to handle things during the pandemic, but because they are looking to grab soon-to-be-open Saturday TV slots. I'd guess if the NFL takes Saturdays in 2020, they won't give up those TV slots easily going forward. Best case scenario - all college sports, including football, resume somewhat in the spring, the majority of athletic departments have enough revenue to barely keep going, and 2021-22 is somewhat normal. Worst case scenario - college sports is basically over as we know it. My guess is there are more than a handful of major college presidents who would be OK with scenario #2.

    The major conferences freezing out the small conferences was too clever by half. The small conferences, with no paydays coming for major conference road games, have no reason not to fold up the tent on the season. Which puts more pressure on the major conferences to do so as well. If the season is cancelled, whether this turns out to be just a disaster, or if it turns out to be catastrophic, for college athletics and athletic budgets is the question that remains. The ever increasing of the TV money will probably stop, and possibly reverse as the cable networks are going to be in trouble. I suspect that Ed Weir track will still exist 10 years from now.

    Sounding pretty bleak for college football at this point with the Big Ten presidents leading the charge. Can't imagine volleyball has much of a chance of being played either. If they cancel football or say they're moving it to spring, there is basically zero chance an indoor sport like hoops starts on time and Jan. 1 would almost certainly be the best case scenario ... if they'd play at all. Brutal. The potential budget / sports cuts coming could be catastrophic with no football revenue, especially after losing March Madness last season. Wonder how many athletic departments even survive / stay in D-1 outside of the big boys.

If that's the route they want to go, it'd make way more sense to have him double up on cu and UNO and have someone else do NU. But it's a weird time in the newspaper industry, so who knows?

    Valladolid plays in the second tier of Spanish professional basketball. Looks like they were in 1st (and in line for promotion to the first division) when the season was halted last year due to covid so apparently they're still in the second division now. Congratulations to Matej, and best of luck!

    To start off this there is no rule against it. When Grant Gibbs got his extra year of eligibility, Greg McDermott paid for Doug to go to school. Given how much Gibbs brought to the team and how much their winning effects his future contract, it was almost like an investment in himself. Most any of us would have done the same thing in the same situation. More power to him. Thus it's more about how motivated you would be to pay for your kid to go to school. Dwayne Wade has all the money in the world. He can afford to send Zaire to Marquette or any school with the same amount of financial inconvenience many here might experience buying a sandwich. Paying for his kid to play at Marquette isn't going to guarantee meaningful playing time. If his son earns a scholarship there, darn right he should get it. Now, they're full on schollies and they need one more for a situation that will benefit the team he's invested in and his son attends? Sure.

    Instagram stories only last for 24 hours but Stevenson had one up of video from a practice. FWIW I thought it looked like him driving to the basket but I can't 100% confirm that.

    1. Bigger = better, there won’t be any UC Riverside or North Dakota losses. 2. At least .500 3. Yes, NBA difference makers, more Royce Whites than Andrew Whites. 4. I wish we had a power forward like Andre Smith that can score with his back to the basket. P.S. I scored an autographed Cam Mack hat @ Goodwill last week...

    The way Amy coaches she should have full court press going the whole 40 minutes and we never pressed what so ever. I just don't like the way she coaches for a power 5 school. I love her as a coach because you can tell she is very passionate about the game. I love sitting right behind the bench and watching her coach. She is very fun to watch. But I just don't think the way she plays the game will ever work in the power 5 conference. I think it worked at the previous school because there was a lot less talented kids in the conference overall. Nebraska has the money go find a legit big contender from a better girls basketball school and steal them. I wish we would just got it done and over with this year. But I am guessing the way the roster is shaking out it will happen this coming year sadly.
