  1. I would include him, with the starting 5 I listed, as "firmly in" the rotation. With the last two spots being up for grabs still.
  2. Agreed. Im leaning towards a Mack, Burke, Cheatham, Kavas, and Stevenson starting lineup. Hopefully the open scrimmage leads us into an undefeated football show down with Ohio State and an October filled with news, clips, and rumors about Nebrasketball practices.
  3. Some think Yvan Ouedraogo will start simply bc he is 6'9 and 260. I was guilty of that (starting but only playing 15-20) but have since changed my mind bc of being away from the team for so long and only being 17. Also guilty of thinking more traditional starting lineups which might not be the case this year or ever under Hoiberg.
  4. Better simply in terms of record. All the non-con teams we play to start are, no offense, but trash (Troy is a quality football program that has a winning tradition over the past 10 years or so). And if we played a basketball team as talented as Michigan's football team early on we would undoubtedly receive an "ass whuppin". If the football team was able to play out the original schedule, I think the season would have played out a tad different but thats a rant for a different thread Also, South Dakota State could be comparable to the football teams Troy game. Thats a winning program that wont be intimidated by us and will be visiting while we are still figuring things out (3rd game).
  5. Im expecting a 14-17 to 16-15 type of record. So as most have said, right around .500 Theres no reason we shouldnt win 8 or 9 non-con games with how light our schedule is. We have the talent and depth at gaurd, but unfortunately we are a little undersized at the wing and undersized/thin in the front court. Thats gonna make it hard to win in the B1G games. I think Hoiberg's first year will be a lot like Frost's first year.
  6. Andre Hunt and Katarian LeGrone are suspended indefinitely. LeGrone was not a surprising omission from the depth chart; however, Hunt was. Atleast we have a little clarity as to why.
  7. Nope. He has yet to be with the team at all, whether it be overseas in Italy or here in the states.
  8. Im interested to see how many of the guys are 2020 and how many are 2021.
  9. I would assume its gonna have to be PG but then again you cant really have Rick Ross and be PG. Its an interesting choice.
  10. His rap persona is believed to be based off the actual drug king pin "Freeway" Ricky Ross.
  11. From what I have gathered, each group of 5 (starters and the next 5) played roughly 20 minutes every game. If thats true, all of their minutes should be pretty close.
  12. We'll be close. But I think the Cal transfer ruins it for us as he will start if healthy
  13. Cam Jurgens most be something real special or the other options are pretty low. Missed most of the summer and parts of fall camp just to come back and be #1 right away. Its not like he is some seasoned vet. But I guess if youre getting comparisons to Dave Rimmington, youre probably pretty good.
  14. My only concern, and its not a very big one, is the roster management. No matter how you shake it JUCOs struggle in D1 and if they become impactful its not usually until the second part of the season or year two. Also, on paper, our freshmen class isnt anything to write home about (Im trusting the staffs evaluating). Add in that every other player hasnt played P5 basketball (sorry Haanif, im busy taking shots at Creighton and the Big East) at all or in a meaningful role and it could concern some that so many scholarships are tied up for so long. But once again im trusting Hoiberg and his judgement so its not a huge concern of mine.
  15. Dont have the exact numbers but apparently Jervay Green and Haanif Cheatham led the gaurds in rebounding during the four games.
  16. My only real concern is the roster construction. And its a very small concern. But hopefully we dont have too many reaches/misses with all the players we brought in.
  17. So now Donovan Williams and Dre Davis are basically equals in terms of recruiting rank. It will be interesting to see which one has a bigger impact their frosh year and over the course of their careers. Williams should be back (hopefully) from his ACL injury between February and March.
  18. Per OWH article: Hoiberg played each game with two groups that roughly played together 20 min each. So basically it sounds like he played his starting 5 together each game and then the next 5. Didnt really mix and match those groups during games. His goal was to try out different lineups and systems and see who works well with who. Reminder that the 10 players who made up these two groups were: Green, Cheatham, Burke, Curtis, Stevenson, Thorbjarnarson, Kavas, Easley, Cross, and Banton. Also, apparently B1G network sent out a crew to film the trip and will be coming out with a 3 part special about Fred Hoiberg/Nebraska and their trip.
  19. Anybody know if Yvan Ouedraogo ever joined the team in Italy? Dont recall seeing him in any photos when they were site seeing.
  20. Loved Sharpe and Benning. Not a huge fan of the other programs.
  21. Heres how I understand the coaches' responsibilities so far: - Fred Hoiberg: Head Coach and Offense - Bobby Lutz: Offensive Assistant - Armon Gates: Player relations, in state recruiter, and works with PGs - Doc Sadler: Defensive Coordinator - Matt A: Transfer recruiter and player relations
  22. He helps Hoiberg on offense for sure.
  23. Yeah also I guess he has seen Akol already since he participated in the practices leading up to the trip. Whereas Mack was unable to and Ouedraogo was not on campus.
  24. No idea if it means anything but Hoiberg is asked on his thoughts about the freshmen. He talks about Cross and Curtis and their play. He also mentions how they have yet to see Yvan or Mack on a court yet. No mention of Akol Arop who is fits under both the categories of freshman and not yet stepped on the court for a game. Weird.
