  1. Prior to 9/11, my military career wound down to a slow, gradual stop. I decided not to "re-up" as it were. Didn't have the fire in my belly. Like Gaylord Perry, I felt like I'd maybe stuck around beyond my "sell by" date and it was time to hang up the cleats. Unlike Perry, I didn't notch 300 wins. I had decided to quit instead of retire. If I stuck around longer, I knew I'd feel compelled to hang around until I got "my 20" and I just didn't want to do that. Your superiors are often assholes in the Army, and the higher you climb in the ranks, the more likely it is that you become the asshole.

    Do these passes come with free valet service that warms your car up at the 5 minute mark in the 2nd half so you can leave the game early to beat traffic?

  11. I wanted Jasen to be a Husker, just like Traudt and Sallis and Hepburn. Not only are they talented but they are home grown. Why the latter matters to me is basically a pride thing I guess in that such talent has been few and far between over the years and that talent has rarely ended up at NU. Oh well. I wish him and the others the best of luck except for when they play NU. Ultimately what I care about the most is for Nebraska basketball to become relevant in the B1G, meaning upper half finish more often than not and of course, getting to and winning in the NCAA tournament on a con

  12. This kid is blowing up, now with recent offers from Illinois, Michigan State and Iowa. He's transformed his body and now looks the part of a sleek, skilled 4. And his work is paying off with the offers he's getting. Don't know if we're still in the running or not, but we just offered his prep teammate, Denim Dawson. (The guy he's practicing with is a 4-star who just committed to Stanford.)

  13. Popa was supposed to be 6-5 in early recruiting info., so the pix seem to indicate that. Like mentioned Bella is a beast, and with Markowski added, they would make a pretty dominate lane defense if in there together. No idea how much Popa might be ready for the college game. But her dad was NBA so she has a good pedigree and decent knowledge of what's going on. Just think we'll be better around the basket, it should allow the backcourt more freedom to excel. ...In theory anyway. The season is getting closer...6 weeks or so......Anyone else get excited just talkin

  14. yep...will be interesting to see how well they adjust to the college game. i still am banking on Bella Cravens. she can be such a beast around the basket. just hope she can stay healthy. what are they?......'bout 3 weeks before practice starts?

  19. Beautifully written. The arc of our timelines just missed each other. I was fresh out of an eleven month tech school in the Air Force on that day. I was at my 1st duty station in Warner Robin's Georgia in the 5th Mob at the 51st Combat Communication Squadron. I can almost recall that whole day. Minuet by minute.but heres a little story a little later. My squadron sent some of the first communications people over. They left night before/morning of the Oklahoma game(the one with pass :)) I had to load out the gear on the planes. I got voluntold to do extra

  20. There have been so many stories told about the heroic events/actions that took place 20 years ago AS WELL AS the many years that followed. But was is so emotional for me are the thousands of untold stories of those that died then; and those that have subsequently died in the follow up wars and attacks. May they rest in peace.

  22. All this is just speculation for now, where we end up this year. But if we end up a .500 team again the the B1G.....sorry but that would be a disappointment. If our newbies get playing time and can come thorough, just see us better than that. But to many if's.... Maybe I'm overly optimistic as usual, but... Envision a different set of starters and a different second 5 off the bench than last year. Shelly, Markowski and Weidner can make a big contribution. I see a tough mindset in those 3 in particular. Anyway, could go on for pages....sure looks good for a better next

  25. Seriously. I hate all these small ego dipshits that insist on using "Power 6" or "Major 7" monikers to feel included in something that is completely irrelevant to whatever it is they are talking about. The five autonomy conferences were given the nickname "Power 5" and it's been horribly co-opted, particularly by basketball-centric conferences to make them feel more important than they really are. /rant

  30. I think he plays point in HS just to have the ball in his hand because he’s just that good of a scorer. I think he’s an off guard that’s more of a shooting guard that can handle the ball if need be.

    Green's where its at. I've had a parking pass there since it opened. Pretty quick in and out after the game is over of course.

  33. His passing is excellent. His handles are rapidly improving to the point he will be able to get by guys as tight as they will have to play him. He was getting all kinds of defensive treatment in aau and huge numbers were always the result.

  35. People put to much stock in thinking cause we were the first to offer that is going to have an impact. Many times it schools that offer later on that land the recruit. I agree I thought we were in good position with him as well but obvious Creighton wrote out a check with several zero's on it.

  41. i could easily see it coming down to BTT play (for shot at NCAA Tourney). sure would be nice to have it cemented before tourney, but......lose 3 or more in non-con and chances are slim....very slim (barring a HUGE turnaround in play). i say a non-con sweep or only 1 loss is needed.

  43. Boy, I'd be willing to bet Doc will continue to do the defensive scouting. He'll probably come up with the game plan. He might not be on the floor coaching, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was in the film room running through things with players/coaches. Breaking down an opposing offense and figuring out how to defend it is his forte and to whatever extent he's able to continue to do that, I would bet he's all in.

    Talent

    Interesting overview: Do stars matter? Predicting order of finish in the B1G based solely on recruiting rankings Just goes to show that talent matters, but it’s not the only thing that matters.

  47. You focus on his downfalls but don’t give any light to the money he gives to his community where he turned an abandoned school into a community center to help keep kids off the street and get jobs for adults and the amount of money he donates to charity to help people that suffer from PTSD and mental health. Plus the amount of stuff he donated to prisons during the pandemic to help all workers for cleaning supplies and masks etc.

    Drake will be solid I think but they lost their hc and had one of their better players transfer out as well. Wake lost 2 of their better players from last year i believe too. With the NCAA using the net rankings these look like mostly lower quad 2 and quad 3 with a few quad 4 games which is disappointing to me. For a team that wants to contend for a tournament spot I was hoping for more.
