  1. this is a relatively rare, total re-model of a program. That's not going to happen instantly. We're in one of the toughest conferences in the country. I think you temper expectations naturally. I'm content to just see what plays out in the first two months. I do think that if this roster has any ambition of making a 2020-21 run in the tourney, they'll likely need to be an NIT caliber squad by the end of season 1. You can tell I was never big on shaking the Xmas presents to guess what was in them, eh? :)
  2. tv loves the current set up. using all the time outs and game stoppages means more ads. I read Zirin do an article on that several years ago and he calculated that the ad time during college basketball games went up about 25-30 percent, which over time is millions of dollars for large regional or national productions. game stoppages are an advertisers best friend, which is why so many sports have so many more of them these days.
  3. this is stupid good news...:) A Husker lands a genuine roster spot. Good work, Zay!
  4. James with a sweet game. Would love to see him make a roster. We're all focused on Roby, would be awesome if Palmer sneaks onto one himself.
  5. cheering hard for Zay. Keep at it, brother. Make that squad.
  6. No bloody idea is an option, right? Good. That's mine.
  7. I think I have that video somewhere.....oh.....basketball! my bad.
  8. I decided after I typed (of course!) to visit the Mavericks site on SB Nation. They're mostly positive about the pick and largely said what you just did, too, although pretty evenly split as to whether or not he could make the bench this season or not. I wish he did wind up with the Pistons, because that traditionally has been my favorite NBA team so it would've given me an excuse to give a crap again. :) Alas....
  9. Wish the guy good luck. There's PT to be had in Dallas at the moment as they're in full rebuild mode still (I think. I ignored this season in the NBA). That means there's at least room on the bench, which gives him a chance to make a roster that I don't think he would've made for most other teams. Leave it on the court, Zay. Get on that team.
  10. oh god, don't get me started on Cliff's stories from back in the day. What a divine hole that place was. Only place in town for years to get a decent martini.
  11. This is one of those "wake me up in January" schedules. Yeah, it's year one, but this is maybe too much cake in that cup.
  12. Illinois going to be nasty, I think. Huskers have too many new moving parts. Actually, all their moving parts are new. They could wind up damn near anywhere. I like us 10th right now with an outside shot at NIT.
  13. I love Timmeh, but the rosters are no contest. This new team will be demonstrably more talented than the one we most likely would've put on the floor next season. For the new guys, the question isn't' going to be talent. it's going to be chemistry. And that wasn't going to be the first concern for next year's squad (although it would've been number two after the epic meltdown). Any word on Tim's next move while we're on the sorta subject?
