    I think it’s more of a Thor or Shamiel question. I don’t see any scenario that we’ll have two of our four bigs starting. I think it’ll be one big (Yvan, Walker or Lat), one guard (Webster or Trey, if eligible) and three ball players (out of Dalano, Teddy, Shamiel, Thor).

    Exactly where im at.

  2. Trey McGowens will start if eligible. But he currently isnt so I will noy include  him.


    The starting 5 will look something like this:

    - Dalano Banton

    - Teddy Allen

    - Yvan Ouedraogo or Derrick Walker

    - Kobe Webster, Thorir Thorbjarnarson, or Shamiel Stevenson (two out of these three will start)


    I would be a little surprised if Lat Mayen is a day one starter. I would be shocked if Akol Arop, Eduardo Andre, or Elijah Wood or starting.

    *Without Kobe King

    PG: K. Webster - D. Banton

    W: D. Banton - T. Thorbjarnarson 

    W: T. Allen - T. Thorbjarnarson 

    W: S. Stevenson - L. Mayen - A. Arop

    F: Y. Ouedraogo - D. Walker - E. Andre

    Still feel the same. Assuming Elijah Wood is utilized as back up ball handler and as a depth builder at wing if injuries or foul trouble arise.


    Atleast one player out of Elijah Wood, Eduardo Andre, and Akol Arop will need to be able to fill a 20-25 game/8-12 MPG role next year.

    BTW, if he's 6-8, how tall is the woman?

    The top of her head goes to about his bottom lip, right? My guess is Yvan is anywhere from 6 to 8 inches taller than her. Lol still doesnt help depict how tall Yvan or the young lady is.

    I still believe there will be no football/basketball/volleyball/etc this fall. 

    MLB has still yet to set a start date, which is concerning.

    The real question is who is going to be the first one to step out on a limb. No one wants to "that" person who is going to potentially put their neck on the line. 

    I imagine what is holding everything back is related to legal concerns along with public perception.

    If you're talking about all sports, NHL was the first to announce a plan followed by the NBA. I have doubts that either will actually kick off and if they do, they will not be completed. Just in my small world alone, I see too many ppl not doing their part.


    Sure hope im wrong bc i desperately want an NBA finish, a college fb and NFL season, and Nebrasketball!!!

    My wife just recieved a care package from our sister in law and my brother back in Nebraska. We are about to have our first child. My sister in law tucked a little something special in the care package for me ☺️ 


    Congrats!!I have a 5 month old daughter myself. Its definitely an amazing experience.


    Any idea where your sister-in-law got that or if it was hand made? I would love to get one or something similar for my little one to wear during her first Nebrasketball season.

    2020 for spring sports is a do over for all players. He also has a redshirt. He will apply for waiver. So if he gets waiver he gets 2 to play 2. If he doesn't get waiver, he can redshirt then play 2.

    So the only class that got larger was the freshmen class? As freshmen from last season will still be freshmen and join in with the incoming class?


    And senior classes probably shrunk as some seniors decided not to return.

    Just picked up Cam Wynne from AM.

    Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk

    Sit one to play one? Or does the 2020 season not count so he will have two years? Could also be eligible right away since he transferred back to his home city during the pandemic.

  9. Yvan, Thor, and King (if eligible) are all part of my predicted rotation. Huge opportunity for guys like Akol and Eduardo Andre to close the gap or maybe even get a leg up.


    Probably doesnt matter so much for Thor and King since they both are very experienced CBB players and will more than likely transition back in seamlessly.

    Lemme get this straight: We're tossing long-standing rules on amateurism so that the 9th most-marketable athlete at UN-L, a bowler named Brynn Lambrecht, can haul in a hefty extra $844/year from her name, image and likeness?

    She isnt the 9th most marketable athlete at UNL. The table you quoted is showing the most marketable athlete from each sport. There are many other athletes (presumably FB, MBB, and VB players) that would make more than her but are not listed bc they are not the most marketable from their respective sport.

  11. I have noticed that my affinity for college football has waned over the past few years (I used to be a fanatic). I think a lot of it has to do with these crazy and ridiculous conferences. I have started to enjoy annual matchups with Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota but still feel no appeal to playing Illinois, Indiana, Rutgers, Penn State, Maryland, Purdue, etc. And its not just bc some of them are bad teams as I had no problem playing Iowa St, Kansas, K-State, etc from the Big 8/12. I really just miss the regional appeal of conferences. 


    So I decided to give myself what I want... via X-box 360 and NCAA Football '14. I simulate college football seasons with my realigned conferences listed below. I roll with seven 10-team conferences that include all P5 teams and a couple top notch G5 programs. Everyone plays the same amount of conference and non-conference games and theres no silly conference championship games. Here are my idea for conferences (ironically, Nebraska gets stuck in the least regionally sound conference due to the small amount of Midwest and Mountain West programs):


    ACC: Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina, NC State, Duke, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Louisville 

    Big 12: Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, Texas, TCU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor, Houston, LSU, Arkansas

    Big East: Connecticut, Boston College, Syracuse, Pitt, Penn St, Rutgers, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Virginia Tech

    Big Ten: Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, Illinois, Northwestern, Michigan, Michigan St, Ohio St

    MWC: Iowa, Iowa St, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, K-State, Colorado, BYU, Utah, Boise St

    Pac: Washington, Washington St, Oregon, Oregon St, UCLA, USC, Cal, Stanford, Arizona, Arizona St

    SEC: Miami, Florida St, Florida, UCF, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Miss St


    Would absolutely LOVE to see something like this in real life.

  12. Im so excited! Cant wait. 


    There were two other models i preferred but i get what the NBA is trying to do with this one. A lot of teams are close in the standings so those 8 regular season games will be crucial.

  13. Looks like the NBA has zeroed in on the template they would like to use to restart there season. This will be voted on by team owners tomorrow and is expected to pass.


    They will be bringing back 22 teams. All 16 teams currently in the playoff field plus any team that is within 6 games of the eight seed. That equates to one team from the East (Washington Wizards) and five teams from the West (New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trailblazers, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, and Pheonix Suns).


    All 22 teams will play 8 regular season games. The conclusion of those games will finalize the 1-7 seeds in both conferences. If the 8 seed is 3.5 games or more ahead of the 9 seed than their berth is secured. However, if the 9 seed is within 3 games of the 8, a play-in series will be conducted. With the play-in tournament it is double elimination for the 8 seed and single elimination for the 9 seed. 


    Very inclusive/creative idea as they are definitely trying give bubble teams opportunity to make up for the loss of the last 20ish regular season games. I fear they are doing too much, given the fragile state we are on with the pandemic. We shall see how it plays out.

  14. Id go with the white team. Their players have proven much more at the D1 level. Kobe Webster, Kobe King, Trey McGowens, and Teddy Allen have all accomplished more than anyone on the red team has to date.
