  1. As long as Sadler isn't compelled the day before the start of the season to warn us we're going to suck again, I shall consider the optimism to be valid!

    Everyone is at some point an asshole. We're talking about whether or not Chambers is a tremendous asshole. In July it was revealed that Rashad Bolton transferred because Chambers was an asshole. Penn State started talking to everyone as a school like Penn State should have at least one sport in which it further investigates and it turns out that the guy who shoved Myles Dread during a game is a raging asshole per many former players and assistants. Seems pretty apparent he's in the neighborhood of the Bobby Knight/Woody Hayes zone of behavior without being in the zipcode of their

  3. Weird thing about skipping Teddy Allen on this list is that he was a contributor at West Virginia on a team that made the Sweet 16 and was projected to start when he transferred to Wichita State before he got into trouble. And, at juco, he showed he had obviously worked on the one major, glaring offensive weakness he had at WVa, which was his 3-point shooting. He comes out of juco being a fairly complete offensive package. And he comes to a Nebraska team that is desperate for some offensive firepower. So, if there's any juco in the nation who seems destined to have an impact, it would be this

  4. Jerry Meyer, 247's director of basketball scouting, just gave his crystal ball prediction of Bryce to Nebraska. Washut is being abnormally quiet and short with his statements about this one. I'm liking our chances.

  6. What I find rather ironic is that lots (not all) of the "shut up and play, keep politics out of it" crowd who think players shouldn't voice their opinions are the SAME people who voted for a president who bitches and voices his opinion like a high school girl, and they have no problem with that.

  14. The only problem is, we hear the same thing every year. I'm pretty sure last year we were hearing guys say pretty much exactly the same. Like coach speak, I kind of take stuff like this with a grain of salt.

  16. A couple of our guys made the list --> Trey checking in at #52 and Dalano at #67. Also, I had totally forgotten that Matt Haarms transferred out of Purdue for his senior year and is now at BYU. I may have to make the 90 minute drive down to Provo just to heckle him one last time. https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/30139382/newcomer-impact-rankings-which-college-basketball-freshmen-transfers-lead-teams-2020-21

  21. My theory was he decommited from FSU only because he wanted to play here with his brother. Trey probably told him he was getting great coaching here and that it was 10 times better than Pitt. Or words to that affect. You can't just drop one place and immediately commit to somewhere else unless you're D'Andre Davis or something. So, it seemed logical to me that he might entertain some offers before eventually doing what he'd planned to do from the beginning: Commit to Fred Hoiberg and the Huskers. Of course, my logic and that of an 18-year-old HS senior might not necessarily match.

  24. I mean...I think they've been working on this scheme for months now, honestly. Getting Trey as a transfer is, on it's face a pretty good deal alone. But you have got to think they were probably thinking that getting his little brother has always been the end game here. Let's hope the gambit is successful.

    From looking at the picture and at Kate Cain being 6'5'' it doesn't seem Bella Cravens is 6'3". But being a good leaper and with good timing I'm sure that helps with shot blocking and rebounding. Also just from the picture Ruby Porter looks to have a good frame. Maybe she can play some at the #3 position. Will need some one to step into Taylor Kissingers shoes.

  27. I'm starting to get a feeling that this is happening. It reminds me of the feeling I had when I came to the conclusion that my then-girlfriend (now wife) would say "yes" if I proposed. I did; she did; rest is history. Not the *same* feeling (disclaimer for those who seem to have difficulty with abstract thoughts) but reminds me of that feeling. You get what I mean?

  28. As a true freshman for a West Virginia team that was ranked as high as #2 in the country that year, Teddy scored 15, 22 and 20 points against Oklahoma State, K-State and Oklahoma (leading the team in scoring in all 3 games). OU was ranked #7 at the time and K-State made the Elite 8 that year. He's now a 4th year junior and much more polished and mature than he was then. He's being wildly overlooked, even by many in our fanbase, and I'm ok with that.

  30. Average, probably anywhere from 20-24 minutes per game, but that will fluctuate depending on the team they are playing. I could see a game with 30 minutes and then a game with 15. I think thats the point of Fred's scheme is the ability to throw out something different every game depending on your matchups.

  31. FWIW, I've been watching some video of both players (and going off memory of watching Sallis last year.) There's not a ton of difference between guys at this level. They are ALL athletic as hell and they all can shoot the rock. Or almost all of them, anyway. For Fred's style of ball, I'd take Bryce over Hunter, TBH. Though I'd gladly have both. You can't have enough 6'5ish athletes who can handle the ball and shoot the rock.

    We easily have the best coach out of that bunch who also played the same position in the league. We're a home away from home for this kid. With the way we'll be able to space the floor next year, Bryce could come in and be an All-American. He looks like a true lottery pick to me with that frame and scoring ability. I already think this season will go well. We could be in serious contention for the B1G and beyond next season if our roster shakes out correctly.

  34. I have to respectfully disagree. Woolridge would have been a 5*, but IMO, no one else. If Danny would have been landing 5* talent, we would not be sitting with zero wins in the NCAA tourney. Players like Lue, Piatkowski and Strickland ended up being really good players, but were not considered 5* talent coming out of high school.

  36. That's good news! How many minutes do you think Yvan will average? Probably depends on matchups, but I'm still very curious about the possibilities of Banton, McGowans, Allen, Thor, Mayen... I just think they'd be deadly with Mayen at the 5 and positionless basketball.

  37. 6'2" PG out of Baltimore In addition to Power 5 offers he has Ivy League offers so must excel off the court as much as he does on it. Here is a rather detailed review of game tape on him which i skimmed over. Seems to be quick, has good court vision, an outside shot...most everything you're looking for in a PG. I thought he was a lefty at first but he has a right handed shot....seemed pretty ambidextrous

  42. Lebron is putting thousands of kids who come from nothing—like he did—through college. He is simultaneously helping register thousands of people across the country to participate in our democratic process while managing to be arguably the greatest player ever and winning championships. All things considered, I think his demonstrated empathy for those less fortunate lends itself to a place at the political table. It’s been quite interesting to see Black athletes uncensored and taking over the voice of the organization they continue to revolutionize. More ki

  47. I simply love the idea of NOT having to get the ball to a specific player in order to initiate your offense. Those wasted few seconds allows a defense to get into better position to defend. With the players we have, any number of them can "run" the offense and also defend multiple types of players.
