    Norm Peterson got a reaction from Cazzie22 in Shot Breakdown Comparison   
    So, you're saying Yvan is taking 72% of his shots "at the rim"? Define "at the rim" because I think damn near 100% of his attempts have been within 3 feet of the rim. And, according to the stats on ESPN, he's shooting 44% from the floor. Which, as you suggest in your piece, is nowhere near where you want a guy to be.
     
    Our bad shooting numbers certainly suggest that a talent deficit explains a lot of our woes this year, though.

    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.

    I'm OK with a moral victory at this point.  Our boys played hard and showed improvement.  After the tOSU abomination, I just wanted to see a bit of fight and they did that.

    First of all, let me just say there's some macabre humor in reading an argument among several posters about who is the worst player on a bad basketball team.
     
    Second, this was a good bounce-back performance after Ohio State. While the fans might be folding up their tents and getting ready to head home, the players haven't. We sucked out loud at Ohio State, and it would have been easy for the players to just phone it in after that. Instead, they gutted out a performance that had them playing Michigan State even in the 2nd half.
     
    That's actually encouraging.

    Norm Peterson reacted to Huskerpapa in Michigan State (6-4)(0-3) vs. Nebraska (4-6)(0-3) Game Thread   
    Hmm...the focus should not be on an individual unless that individual is the coach.  This is year two and it is his team and his players.  Any player not buying into this program or judged to have the correct skillset is gone.  Is that correct or incorrect?  
     
    That said, it is the team that is struggling and/or failing.  Each and every player should be preforming at or above expectations.  Those expectations include consistency. I can think of one player that meets my expectation of a Big Ten type player.  Again, consistency is a must.  Can anyone justify more than one?  And is it the same player😁

    Norm Peterson got a reaction from Ron Mexico in Eduardo Andre is N   
    UPDATE: CSU won. Biggest comeback in Mountain West history.
     
    The reason I bring up Mensah is that he and Eduardo seem like pretty similar players. Eduardo needs some reps. Getting Covid was a huge setback for him. I'd love to see what he can do when he's fully in playing condition. He's a bit raw right now, but you can see the potential there. He has nice, soft hands. He moves pretty well. He's extremely long and he's fairly athletic.
     
    He's not perfect. He has some rawness to his game. But if he develops his footwork, learns some spin moves, and just gets a feel for the game, I think he has tremendous upside. Ten and eight are not out of the realm of possibility, even as soon as next season. And he'll return as a freshman, which is really cool for him and for us.

    He's slow. And to make matters worse, I think he's put on some bad weight. I take one look at his belly fat and see a taller, more athletic, slightly less handsome version of me some years ago and I think to myself, "Luka, careful, you're going to hit 350 and wonder where all the weight came from and I'll be there to tell you it was all those jamocha milkshakes from Arbys."

    I really don’t mean to be disrespectful, but Thor wouldn’t even be a stud at UNK. Stop playing him. This season isn’t going anywhere good - see what you have in Wood and Lakes (at least Lakes doesn’t try to do anything he can’t do).

    Norm Peterson got a reaction from Bugeaters1 in The flop rule   
    They call it a delay of game. I'm wondering what it is about flopping that delays the game. If refs don't call a charge and the defender just hits the deck, play just continues. What's the delay?
     
    I hate it because it invites inconsistency in officiating. One time down the floor, Teddy Allen spins toward the defender, defender flops, and Teddy gets whistled for a charge. The other end of the floor, same official, and it's a blocking foul or a flop against us.
     
    Seems like we're never the beneficiary of inconsistent calls.

    Hoping Illinois-Purdue doesn't go into OT
     
    It sure was nice of Illinois to brick multiple 3s in the first 5 minutes to give Purdue a good scout for the Boilers game Tuesday with NU.
