    I laughed after the game when they asked him if he second guessed going for 2.  His body language was awesome.

    Yes. He did. That's true. He lost a bet with Jason Peter is how I understood it.

    Hoiberg is the steal of the next decade in all of college basketball.  I firmly believe this.  There is no way I'm an AD and turn him down in that situation.  There weren't any other candidates better than Miles (I thought Miles did a great job) to come here except for that miracle.  Fred is a dude.  It's only a matter of time with him at the helm.

    The full game where Martinez ran wild on KSU on a Thursday night is on YouTube.  Trust me-- I went to school at KSU and played it often.

    I think the public's tolerance for risk vs. continued willingness to accept limitations on personal freedom will flip by the beginning of August, if not beforehand. People are getting more and more stir crazy. They want to get back to work; they want to get back to their social lives. There will come a point in time in the not too distant future where I predict people are going to think the risk of getting the disease is not significant enough to justify remaining home from things they want to do.
     
    I think you can talk people into making small sacrifices for an extended period of time or really big sacrifices for a small amount of time. But I don't think the public has the stomach for really big sacrifices for an extended period of time unless people are dropping like flies. So ... I think the season goes off as planned. There might be a slight delay if schools don't open up to students until the start of classes. That puts programs behind in conditioning and they might make up for it by pushing back the start of the season just a touch.
     
    But I'm going to say it'll be a go and people will be in the mood for some entertainment.

    One thing we have going for us that we've NEVER had going for us before is a coach with a big name who played in the pros, coached in the pros, and got it done at the college level. Never had that before. I'd say we've got a puncher's chance.

    If you haven’t seen the Documentary “Hoop Dreams” I highly recommend it. Speaks to a LOT of these same issues & is fascinating story as well. Deals with Chicago’s Catholic/Public leagues & two young men’s rise & fall...

    So the parents of white kids who don't even suit up for their own HS team are underwriting the cost of the "Super Star X" kids from Omaha to travel the summer national circuit? And this is unfair to average-skilled black kids whose parents can't afford to be exploited like that? I think I'm following this.
     
     
    Back in the old days, there was like ONE traveling summer team from Nebraska, and they were sponsored by some local business, and it was always a big deal who made it. I remember reading about how Gerry Gdowski figured out he wasn't cut out for basketball in college because he got selected to be on that team and got his lunch eaten by players from other places who were really, really good at basketball. It was kind of his wake-up call.
     
    And then the teams evolved into, like, Bison-Runza Green and Gold or whatever. So, then there were two.
     
    And then, about 20 years ago, some dad got his knickers in a twist because his son didn't get selected and so he went out and started his own team. (I knew the guy, so I know this is how it went down, so don't @ me.) And since then, like with everything else youth sports-related, the numbers just exploded because every kid's parents felt their child would fall behind his peers if he wasn't able to play summer ball. On a select team. Starting at age 5.
     
    So, what wasn't even a thing just 20 years ago is now a requirement even for kids not good enough to play on their high school team and there's a perceived opportunity deprivation for kids whose parents can't afford the cost of having their kid do something on a summer team that, in all probability, he's not good enough to get recruited to do in college, certainly at the D1 level.
     
    I feel sad for those kids. I feel ... relief ... for their parents.

    Back to football, there's a rumor that six B1G teams still want to play and are trying to sort out how to do a home-and-home with each of the other five teams.  Rumors like this are typically unsubstantiated, but in this case there are some connected people doing the reporting.  Gives me hope that there is truth to this rumor.
