  3. Drew Timme will be the preseason national player of the year. Chet Holmgren will be the preseason national freshman of the year. Andrew Nembhard would've been a late first or early second round pick had he entered the draft this year. They'll still have 4-6 NBA guys on next year's roster. Mark Few has made it to the Sweet 16 in the last 6 tournaments in a row, many times with a less talented roster. Completely different situation than Butler and Texas Tech. Of course anything can happen in March, but there's no doubt they'll be a Sweet 16 caliber team again.

  4. Begins and ends with shooting. These are teams designed to find and take shots quickly before the defense is set else to work for a high efficiency shot and take it. Saw several graphics last year that amounted to 'an average team taking these types of shots would have won this game'.

  5. Norm Stewart accused Danny of being a bush league coach. Or was that Billy Tubbs? I know there was zero loved lost among the three of them. Either way, there wasn't the sense of collegiality among coaches back then that seems to permeate the industry today. Nowadays, when a school goes to fire a coach, all the other coaches in their conference jump forward to say what a great coach the guy is and what a huge loss to their school it would be if he gets fired. Back then, they would have said, "that guy can't coach his way out of a paper bag and I'm shocked he

    I don't think the down votes are for your particular stance on the issue per se, but rather introducing a politically charged take to the discussion. Some of us are pretty adamant about leaving politics at the door when coming in to HHC, that's all.

  13. Everything mentioned is critical...no doubt in my mind. Two other intangibles bubble up to the top for me: 1) Learning how to win. That includes general decision making; knowing how to use the team throttle; and understanding game situations. 2) I think it was Johnnie Orr who mentioned a "junk yard dog" when mentioning the Huskers many a year ago. We need to develop that junk yard dog mentality. Protect and fight with every bit of energy...being good is not good enough. Being good often gets in the way of being great. It is a critical mindset.

  19. And, hey, that's what I'm here for. Here goes: So, what has to happen (within the realm of reason and reality, and given our current roster structure) for the men to go over .500 in conference play this year? And I mean just controlling for what we can control. Obviously, if the starters for half the league teams were all ruled academically ineligible for the season it'd help, but that's not within our control. I'll start: 1. Bryce McGowens has to be the real deal. I think that's necessary but, by itself, not sufficient. In other words, we need m

  21. I agree with everything you outlined Norm and would add that our team depth has to be solid. Last year, we had a drop-off in some positions when the starters weren't on the floor. Great teams have back-ups almost as good as the 5 starters so you don't lose much when you sub in. I really think this year, our team depth will be the key. We ran out of gas in several games we lost last year due to this issue and if we can develop better depth this year, those can easily be turned into wins this year.

  24. Everything mentioned is important, but in my mind the thing we need to improve on the most and impacts winning is assist-to-turnover ratio. We obviously need to cut down on turnovers, especially the lazy "lack of focus" TOs and the "dribbling into 3 guys" TOs. But a big way to improve assist-to-TO is just make open shots when your teammate gets you a good look, or when Fred draws up something to get you a wide open shot, knock it down. Hopefully, with Bryce, CJ, Keisei, and Keon we have the players in place that can do that now.

  25. 5) Fans need to bring it like we did in Year 1 of the PBA. Create that home court advantage where we don’t lose at home. We would have gone undefeated in Year 1 if Michigan doesn’t hit that half court shot at the end of the first half.

  27. Is it time to say that Mark Few is unable to win "The Big Game" yet? I seem to remember Roy Williams and Tom Osborne wearing that label for awhile.

  28. There is no doubt that Gonzaga will be a top seed in next year’s tournament—none whatsoever: they are a great team, with lots of great players, and play in a pretend conference. They would have to under-perform by dramatic proportions for any other result. But everyone still has to play the games—and Gonzaga nearly got bounced by a play-in team this tournament and got crushed by Baylor.

    Come on @Norm Peterson, everybody knows that a top-25 5* kid is clearly a fraud if he commits to play hoops at stupid Nebraska. One needs to be a 6-7 Trevor Lakes clone from NWMSU to really get the blood pumping! HUGE ADDITION!!! #LetItFly

  39. Actually it was Johnny Orr who said it while dissing the Nebraska crowd. The Dead Dog Alley marketing campaign might have been Nee's idea, but when Danny explained it, it really didn't make a lot of sense. (Why should we embrace an insult someone else hurled at us?) The t-shirt came with the student ticket and it was just for one year - 1990 - the year Beau Reid was injured and they stunk it up, going 10-18. The next year when they went 26-8 the whole Dead Dog Alley thing was completely forgotten. I thought at the time it was one of the dumbest marketing campaigns I'd ever hea

    If there is an intersection of Nebraska Basketball and politics, it is what it is as this is a Nebraska Basketball board. If a thread is off topic, please don't steer it more off more than it already is.

    Totally get what you're saying. Considering the last home series (Buttgers) as far the NW series goes I'd "settle" for a series win. Sweeps are hard to come by, but it would definitely be nice.
