  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

  6. From the Sallis thread: "Likes Fred, but the transfer culture doesn't appeal to him. Has to mix in as a freshman with 21-22 year olds and some character issues. Could refer to a combination of Cam and Teddy coming in, Sautter didn't specify."

  8. 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.

  10. 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

  13. 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.

  16. I decided to add to this thread rather than start a new one. I happened to stay up a bit later than usual, winding down from a pretty good movie I had taped ("Crazies" with Timothy Oliphant) and pondering the 35 point NU loss earlier. I happened to note the World Series was still on in the 9th inning and thought I might as well watch the ending, expecting another boring LA win. I was wishing it to end when some unknown Ray (and ex-Royal) came up to make the last out). Shazam! Voila! A new star is born. Check out his story from MLB..... https://www.mlb.com/news/crazy-facts-world-series-gam

  19. 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.

  22. 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.

  25. 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?

  26. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  37. Ok, so as long as we're doing pie-in-the-sky theorizing, one of the things that turned Hunter off of "N" was the perception that we weren't recruiting HS kids and that he'd have to play around a bunch of transfers who ... Did you say Briedenbach? He's like a 4-star, right? High school kid? OK, but transfers, some with possible character ... Bryce McGowens? Like the Rivals 5-star Bryce McGowens? And Hunter hasn't committed anywhere yet? I'm tellin' ya, if we get a commit from Bryce M, it takes away a LOT of the concerns Hunter expresse

  39. I don't think rebounding will be a strength, but it also shouldn't be a weakness. We've got sufficient numbers to rotate through the 5 (Yvan, DW, & Andre), so it shouldn't be a situation like last year where there was a huge size drop off just because our starting center got in foul trouble. We also have guys that, albeit lacking in either weight (Lat) or length (Shamiel), have developed reputations as willing rebounders. And then there's our guards. They're huge, other than Kobe. There's no substitution for pure size, so I imagine that teams like last year's Purdue roster

  46. That really is an underappreciated skill, and is particularly valuable in post players. Hard working guys can thrive on defense and the boards even with less than ideal size (Charles Barkley, Draymond Green, Dennis Rodman, etc). So a legit 6'10" guy with some polished offensive skill and that plays hard has me very excited.
