  1. This thread isn't about Nebraska Basketball, but, maybe there are some parallels. I want to give an update on my son Seth's health. For you new to the board, he has a condition called MDS--basically it's a form of leukemia. His body has an inability to produce red blood cells. This disease normally attacks the body's ability to produce white cells, but not in Seth's case. He's an anomaly there. Let me cut to the chase: A new drug was approved for the treatment of MDS and Seth has been on it for the last 9 weeks. We didn't know if insurance would cover the cost ---$2000 or mo

  3. So I don't post nearly as much as I used to (duh) but believe me, I watch EVERY game and sometimes, kind of miss the old report cards I used to do from 2004-2015. I also regularly read this awesome website that Matt does a GREAT job with. Anyway, I've been absolutely BLOWN AWAY by how good of a FLOOR COACH (especially situationally) Fred Hoiberg is. Sure, we all know he can recruit... we all know he played in the NBA 10 years... we all know he was in the T-Wolves front office... We all know he built ISU into a winner, regularly put guys into the NBA and coached the Bull

  4. I like beating Iowa. - Night and day different from the Rutgers game. - It's fun beating Iowa - Thor has turned into a difference maker. Don't think I would have predicted that one. - It's wonderful beating Iowa - We seem to play better when Green isn't playing much. I wouldn't have predicted that one, either. - It's good to beat Iowa - I thought Yvan and Kevin did pretty well against Iowa's trees. - I think beating Iowa something everyone can get behind. - Defense did a good job across the board. - Who doesn't think beating Iowa is a

    I appreciate Green. I will try to remember him by cheering his ass of for his teammates with a towel in hand when he was out of the rotation against Iowa. Wasn't sulking, didn't quit and gave us some decent minutes down the stretch. Wish him well.

  7. This year has not gotten off to a great start. Given how big-time of a coach we secured, I don't think anyone assumed we'd start off 0-2 against some pretty poor teams. However, it took me about 2 minutes into the scrimmage to know that this was going to be a team who would struggle. We're skinny, inexperienced as a team, young in most places, have zero height or post players. JUCOs typically struggle to translate in their first year. We start a 17 year old. I guessed 16 total wins this year, and I'm even starting to doubt that. But guess what... it doesn't matter. Fred Hoiberg is a sp

  8. Here are two guys who sacrificed a comfortable senior season in a backwater Division I league to take a chance on Hoiball. They've been rewarded with humiliation on the court, and in Matej Kavas' case, a season-ending injury. This could be the least emotional Senior Day in a long time, but it doesn't mean we don't appreciate what these men gave up to become Huskers. A Toast!

  9. And being replaced with better talent. The entire point of coaching is to recruit talent better than what you have. The guys we had are going to places like South Alabama, Pacific, etc. We are in the Big 10 and need Big 10 players. They were bodies in a lineup and we will continue to get more and more players in that fit the mold.

  11. Thor has one of the highest basketball IQs of any player we've ever had here. Examples abound. Some stand out: he knew we had 4 team fouls in the half with a minute or so to play and could force Iowa to waste time inbounding the ball rather than getting a shot at the hoop. Just made sure the foul was on the floor. And you could tell he knew exactly what he was doing when he did it. Thor has made the absolute most of the opportunities he's had to see the floor his entire career here. And he has manufactured a jump shot where there was none, which had to take a lot of work and persev

    Hey, guys, sorry to worry everyone. I'm not doing any sort of protest, nor am I disillusioned or anything. I was invited to participated in a sort of "observance" that asks men to give up certain things starting 90 days before Easter. Non-essential internet use is one of those things you're asked to give up. I figured if there was ever a year for me to do this program, this was the year. You get one of your sacrifices back on Sundays and I want you all to know I chose you all over taking a hot shower today. You're welcome.

  15. We lacked energy yesterday, but I fail to see how/why Green is responsible for that. Feels like people are looking for a scapegoat. I sat in the student section yesterday. I saw Green lamenting on the sideline late in the game, but it just appeared to be general frustration, which we ALL were feeling. Am I missing something?

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

  22. Saturday will be a special game for me, and let me explain why. But before I do that, six quick thoughts on tonight. 1. Tonight will absolutely be rock bottom. Losing by double figures to a sub .500 Big West team without their best player at home was miserable. Cal Riverside will be lucky to hit 13 wins this year. We had no energy, couldn't hit the broad side of a barn and didn't look anything like a team on offense. It was individual play. We are young and don't have defined roles or defined leaders/letter winners yet. This will come with time. 2. We will g

    I have 90 calender days left at work, for the last 43 yrs I have walked through the doors of a state office (Roads}. And that will end on Oct 2nd, it is a bitter sweet time for me. I have been telling stories of some of the stuff I have seen and done in those 43 yrs. It is time for the young bucks to take over.

  27. Hey, folks, I am ELATED that our Huskers won today! What a great victory! However, we had a fender bender on the way home from church this morning. We were going to the game anyway but then heard I-80 was closed from Gretna to Waverly (we live in Omaha) so we decided to stay home. I cried....still a bit shook up from the accident & then not getting to go to watch my team, it was too much for this old lady. But I cheered as if I had gone: Husker Power when Purdue was introduced, stood until the first basket, _______ for 3, etc. Next time there is a chance of snow on gam

  29. When Yvan is your age, do you think he will regret his decision to play for his country? Or will he look back fondly on that decision? Personally, I don't think it really matters in the grand scheme of things. I understand your point, but look at it from the perspective of a 17 year-old kid getting ready to move to America for at least four years. Playing for France may have been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

  31. We're going to have a good team. There are no clear weaknesses on the roster for the first time in a loooong time. I don't know if we have any super stars, but we have some very, very good players. Fred has pulled off a recruiting miracle in year 2. When he brings in the gunners next season and a 4* stretch 4, it's going to be downright scary how we can scheme. But that's because he's a top 5 coach in the country and the coaching steal of the decade. I cannot wait to watch this team play.

  35. Unless there is some god awful thing Cam did, a fender bender and being late to some team functions isn't enough for me not to want him here next year. There is absolutely no risk with having him return to a roster full of talent and a 6'8" PG who would be more than happy to run the show. I haven't seen any wavering whatsoever with Fred and his team rules. If he decides Cam's behavior is too egregious to be corrected, I trust him, but from the outside looking in, I just see a rascal that needs to get his act together, not some criminal or deviant. He's not the first

    Fellas, I tried. I tried to tell you. I said temper your expectations. I told people in person this was going to be a bad team. I received death threats, my children were banished from their school, bricks were thrown through my windows, I lost my job, and someone killed my dog. MY DOG! .....Ok none of that happened.... but I did receive some annoying messages, tweets, social media messages, texts, etc... And I was laughed at in person by my buddies who I told my initial thoughts on this season. "It's Fred friction Hoiberg bro!!!" "Cam Mack is the #1 Juco kid in the nation!" "Jervay

    We are going to be shuffling guys in and out of this program every single year and often playing with a rotation of 7-9 guys which means you will have anywhere from 4-6 potentially unhappy guys every single year. I would have to think that staff will try and do anything to keep a guy like this who is a plus-plus as far as actually caring he plays for Nebraska and by all accounts is a very high character guy who also happens to have B1G athleticism. I'd be pretty surprised if he wasn't on the team next year.

  38. I'm a Cam Mack fan. He is the only guy currently playing on our team that is a true game changer. And unfortunately, that also means that when he's not playing at 100% then the game changes the wrong direction. The ceiling is extremely high with Cam, and as such it is absolutely worth giving him multiple chances to grow (both personally and on the court). I trust that Fred knows when Cam needs grace vs tough love much better than us fans do, so I'm absolutely willing to give both Fred and Cam the benefit of the doubt. Go Big Red, Go Big Fred, and Go Big Mac! P.S. to

  46. Breidenbach and his famed high school basketball program is currently in Portland playing in a holiday invitational tournament. His school easily has 5 high major prospects on the team including 5 star Kentucky PG commit Devin Askew. I would say he's roughly 6'9'' with shoes. He does not look like your typical basketball player but I definitely see why Hoiberg and company like him. While the team doing pre-game shoot around he spent the majority of his time shooting free throws and making probably 90%. He's got an extremely easy shot without many moving parts which is nice to s

  47. At his best -- which I don't think we've seen yet in a Husker uni -- Jervay is definitely one of the best players on this team. At his best, he'll be hitting 40%+/- from 3-point range, can create his own shot, can dish to his teammates, and can play solid defense. It shouldn't be any surprise to anyone who has followed Nebraska basketball for a couple of decades that a juco player is experiencing an adjustment period transitioning to D-1 ball. Even Nate Johnson didn't really come into his own until he was a senior. Give Jervay time. We're not even 1/3 into the season yet.

  48. I don't understand this thought process/concern. And this isn't to single you out. At 6'9", 260lbs, 17y.o., and a freshman this is the type of big body player we have clamored for in years past. Usually with the thinking if we could get this type of player, he would be a little raw, somewhat over looked, probably off the radar and that is how we would get that kind of recruit. Young man is gonna be 20 y.o. as a junior. The amount of physical change likely to occur with this young man is pretty significant.
