    I think if Cross had 25 minutes and Yvan had 17, we win.  Instead it was the other way around partly because of foul trouble.  I really don’t see why Cross isn’t the bonafide starter at this point.  


    Rutgers would have scored 6-8 more points and Cross would have taken 3-5 more shots; missing most of them (not saying Yvan played great by any means). I just dont think it would have made a difference personally.


    However, I do like his potential as a point forward in the future.

    I think it is hard enough to get any player to voluntarily sit a year, let alone multiple players. I would assume this is a "wish list " of potentials. 

    If you are referring to my list above, it is not a wish list of who i want to leave (i listed every returning scholarship player for next year). Just a list of the most likely scenario in which each player could leave. Its very likely that 1-3 of those scenarios will occur this off season; which combinations, I have no idea.

    Hadn't seen this before, but Cam's listed late-2nd round on nbadraft.net:


    (Realistic) Attrition Tracker:


    - Dachon Burke: grad transfer candidate upon graduation

    - Thorir Thorbjarnarson: go pro

    - Jervay Green: sit one to play one

    - Cam Mack: go pro

    - Akol Arop: sit one to play three

    - Yvan Ouedraogo: sit one to play three

    - Kevin Cross: sit one to play three

    - Charlie Easley: sit one to play three


    Attrition is a tricky beast but i think these would be the most likely scenario for each player. Our three players sitting out could also transfer or even go pro but it is very unlikely. Hell even Teddy Allen or Lat Mayen could go pro in some capacity, but once again very unlikely.




  4. I really really hope that our returning players from this season bring the right attitude coming into next season. Im talking about looking at these incoming guys and saying why you think you get to come in here and play over me? I played through all the ass kickings last season and took my lumps. I was out here learning the playbook and learning the intricacies of B1G bball not you. Im not about to just be a stop gap until yall become eligible!!!


    Thats what im hoping to get out of our returning wings and front court players. Yes we have talented players coming in but I also think we have some dogs on the team that arent gonna relinquish their PT so easily.

    *-With six assists, Cam Mack upped his season assist total of 114, which eclipses the 112 that Glynn Watson Jr. had in 36 games a year ago.  Mack now has at least five assists in eight straight games and 13 times this season.

    Loved Glynn so this isnt a knock on him but imagine the assist numbers Mack would have put up with a supporting cast of Roby, Palmer, Copeland, and Thomas Allen 🤯

    Great post, Mr. Red. I'm curious which players you think might not return. I have heard rumors Throbjarnarson  might graduate and leave to play pro ball overseas. Of the others I think Arop will likely depart for a school where he plays a more prominent role. Who does that leave who likely won't see much playing time? Strangely if Green doesn't play again I don't see him staying although he would have to sit out a year (right?)



    PM's might be a good place for you two discuss this.


    And he probably is saying 1-3 will transfer bc thats about how many transfer every year... from almost every school. Its inevitable.

    Weird move for the southern MSU to cut bait after 2 years of Joe Moorhead. But, it will certainly be interesting having Mike Leach in the $EC.



    Mike Leach AND Lane Kiffin


    Same conference

    Same division 

    Same state 




    I will definitely be tuning in to the Egg Bowl.

    I'm not sure where he is now (probably about the same) but going into the Iowa game Yvan was in the bottom 20 players nationally in efficiency.

    To be fair, I dont know many current JR/SR in high school that would fair much better. And the ones that would, wont be coming to Nebraska any time soon and will also only be in college for a year.


    The lumps he is taking this year will do wonders for him the next three years.

    Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Nebrasketball gets a big home win against a decent team, then follows it up with zero energy or cohesion on the road and gets ran out by a desperate, bad team. 

    And home (North Dakota). Still learning how to bring it every damn game i suppose. No matter who the opponent.

  10. Next step for this team is to not lay an egg against a team they should beat. Indiana, Purdue, and Iowa are all proof that we can compete with the middle of the pack B1G teams. Northwestern will likely finish last. Lets see this team come out tomorrow and take care of business!


    Rutgers game doesnt bother me as much bc: 1. I heard on a podcast (half court press or pick six) that Rutgers was the biggest/heaviest team in the B1G and 2. I think they are pretty good. Like top 6 finish in the conference

    I'd assume this is for just the semester unless it's announced that it's for the rest of his time here



    Just curious on how that works bc i thought the B1G offered the "4-year commitable scholarship" deal. Which was why there was a big fuss about Hoiberg getting rid of Miles' players riggr away bc a coaching change is the only time you can pull schollies and force kids out. 


    But im assuming there is some type of loop hole to allow you to temporarily award walkons with scholarships when you have extra.


    Anyway, good for Charlie!
