  1. I just wanted to thank all the posters that have been here for years. You have made this a fabulous website. Way to go, guys! My lack of posting here over the last 18 months has nothing to do about anything political. I have given up following sports. There are more important things in life. Many here have supported my son Seth's battle with MDS with money and prayers over the last several years. Here's an update: Seth and Mrs. cip have been at Mayo since May 15. Seth had his blood marrow transplant last Thursday. So far, so good. If everything proceeds well, they will be back home t

  3. This is all I've got... Not great results. Still many question marks on this season and the next. But these kids...these college student athletes. They've been through a wild season and managed through a pandemic as well. I appreciate the work they put in. I'm happy they got to play nearly all their games. And they wore the Nebraska script on their jerseys the best they could. We'll get back at it next season, but I appreciate the effort put into this one, especially given all the circumstances out of our control.

    I will never understand this type of thinking. There are few people anywhere as invested in the fortunes of the Husker hoops program as Thor. We need more guys on the team like him, not less, IMO.

    Summer Notes

    Coach Hoiberg was on Sports Nightly tonight - I was in the car, so going from memory: Guys have about one more week of summer workouts before they send them home for a couple of weeks before school starts First player he brought up (unsolicited) was Breidenbach (somewhat surprisingly) - since being cleared after the injury, he's been very impressive Then he talked about B McGowens - says he just takes over some of the workouts/scrimmages - hit 4 or 5 3s in a row today in practice Then brought up T McGowens and how he's showing great leadership and he's focused on

    Summer Notes

    It’s not a 3v3 tournament. It’s the Olympic Games held in his home country. I’m an epl fan and my favorites club is losing players to the olympics as well, which is unfortunate for the club and fans like me but a no brainer for the players. You have a chance to represent your country in one of the biggest sporting events in the world that only takes place every four years and you think he should turn it down to get to preseason work outs in Lincoln?

  12. 1. Who the hell else is going to be on my team from year to year? I plan on being here 3-4 years. This is my team, my family, the people I am going to spend the most time with. Is every year going to be like Freshman Orientation at the dorm? You say this like you feel this is exclusive to Nebraska. The turnover is everywhere. In fact, regardless of your plan to stay here for 3-4 years, odds are that you'd be transferring (or "shown the door") yourself. I suspect most of the kids in the transfer portal were planning on staying at their respective schools for the long haul. Plans change. 2.

    Why the hate

    Teddy Allen is scoring 0.967 points per possession, which Synergy classifies as "very good" and in the 73rd percentile. He's "very good" both in the halfcourt and in transition. He's in the 72nd percentile or better in each of his top four play types (spot up = 1.033 PPP, 72%; transition = 1.173 PPP, 74%; off screen = 1.128, 76%; P&R ball-handler = 0.921, 82%). He's also in the 64th percentile in isolation after that Penn State game, scoring 0.867 PPP ("good"). Teddy is above average at almost everything he does offensively. The man-to-man defense and turnover issues are a prob

    Teddy

    Teddy shouldn't be the focus on "what's wrong with this team?" Bart Torvik rates him our most effective player, by a decent margin over Delano and a large margin over Trey. Yeah, his behavior is troubling, but a year ago everyone was convinced that FH would handle him. So he's exactly what we thought we were getting, except now the team is crap and some people are looking to point fingers. We signed up fo: a high-volume, high-scoring player with some baggage. We have one.

  17. No one was “to be fair” to us when we had no Walker for much of the season. And no one was “to be fair” to us when our players had to sit out for a month mid-season. And no one is “to be fair” to us when our players struggle with post-Civid fatigue. And no one is “to be fair” to us when we play a game every other day (with a back-to-back slipped in there just for the heck-of-it).

    Why the hate

    These are the same people that would go up to him to try to get a photo with him after the game if we had a winning record in the Big Ten. * Correction...these people don't even attend the games; they get their hoops news from social media, look at our record, complain, then move on to something else.

  22. Hard to hold a grudge against anyone that's just trying to maximize their exposure during a very narrow window of opportunity. I personally want the best for any former Husker and the existence of this thread would seem to indicate most others do, as well. Sallis, like any other recruit with one-and-done ambitions wants to play in nationally-televised games. He can't achieve that here, but I hope he does elsewhere and that his success leads to increased exposure for other local players in the future.

  26. Considering the alternative was for Nebraska to have an empty spot left from Banton deciding to keep his name in the NBA Draft… I don’t understand how anyone could think this is anything other than a great thing for the Huskers to get a player or this caliber with legitimate success at a Power6 conference school and that was getting looks from NBA teams before deciding to come back to play another season in college. He’s a grad transfer, so he has one season of eligibility, so he literally fills Banton’s empty spot for ‘21-‘22, and will leave that spot open again for the 2022 recruiting class.

    No. Counterpoints: 1. Saying players leaving is "excellent news" is in poor taste. They're college guys, not pros. And once a Husker always a Husker. I wasn't a fan of Shamiel's game even prior to the season starting, but I'm certainly not going to call him losing his spot on the team as "excellent." That's similar to telling your buddy that his decision to get divorced is excellent news. Just not the right response, man. 2. The fact that graduating seniors are eligible for an extra year in '21'-22 AND WILL NOT COUNT AGAINST THE SCHOLARSHIP LIMIT has been discussed ad na

  32. No inside info on Shamiel, but I would think that he would be playing with his hair on fire in the minutes he does get in order to earn more. Thor is not terrible. Yvan is not terrible. Are they limited at this level? Yes. But they are still valuable contributors to the team and so is Lat. I'm all for constructive criticism when warranted, but none of these guys deserve to be called terrible.

  33. 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

  41. A lot of ways to go with this one, but I decided to highlight the 16-0 run Wisconsin went on in 5 minutes to really win the game. Possession by possession breakdown and then full thoughts. Here we go... 33-32) Potter duck-in on Yvan after PNR (2 points) 33-34) Banton blows right by Wahl for a weakly contested layup. Miss. Yvan O-rebound, miss 33-34) Potter easy post touch and squares up Yvan. Thor doesn’t wall off Potter, Yvan falls for shot fake, and Potter steps thru for easy layup (2 points) 33-36) Good action gets Banton downhill with left hand. Banton is thinkin

    Or maybe Yvan was having a career game in terms of the quality of his play and Fred didn't want to mess with it.

  48. Yesterday, the team came out and one by one named someone they were standing for. At the end Kobe Webster and Teddy Allen read from notes they had brought with them. Webster: "We stand together as one to find ways to educate people to hopefully stop this terrible trend of lives being lost for no reason. This is not a political fight. This is about being a decent human being. Hate is such a strong word that is unfortunately used and acted on too much in today's world. We know we are not going to change everything that is going on by standing here today.
