  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. In the worst case, we will still be light years ahead next year in terms of returning production. Last year's returning production: Thorir Thorbjarnarson, 2.0 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 1.2 apg Next year's returning production: Thorir Thorbjarnarson, 8.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 1.3 apg

    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. 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!

  8. 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.

    Based on this I figure this is what he should look like when he's ready to play in 2 years

    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.

  11. 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.

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  21. 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.

    OT: 90 Days

    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. I just wish that they would listen to me when they ask for advice.But it is up to them to make thier minds up. I can only tell them what I would do. I have had many close calls (Death/ injuried) I got luckly about a month ago, when a backhoe swung around nearly hitting me. I hit deck, g

  28. 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.

  30. 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

  41. While Yvan has a ways to go on his offense, I credit his effort out there. He makes an impact in other ways, with his hustle, his rounding, his screen and rolls, his d. He may never be a double double guy here, but I want to be careful not to be too critical.

After committing, I would not be surprised if one of the following happens: 1) McGownens is abducted by aliens, never to be seen again 2) During a 2021 preseason team building event at Lake McConaughy, McGowens has his shooting arm eaten by a shark 3) During a preseason scrimmage at Prairie View, Cam Mack hits a game winning 3 and shoots an arrow that hits McGowens in the heart. It's 2020 and Nebrasketball, the possib

    I know they’re called highlights for a reason but what is the most impressive to me is he can be 24 feet out, catch the ball at chin level and immediately release it with no dip at all. I could do that too but his splashed and mine would land just the other side of the free throw line.
