  1. I don't know at all where Doc's heart is regarding coaching at this point, even an assisting gig. You have any insight into this at all Matt? I really want to see him go out in a good situation.
  2. well, hopefully my Doc fandom doesn't get questioned again in this thread, but this hurts. When doc was in hattiesburg, he still raved about his time in Lincoln. Sadler isn't just one of my favorite nu coaches of all time, hes one of my favorite coaches period. Crappy way to go out, since i know he was looking forward to, and genuinely thought that Hoiberg would, end 'the streak".
  3. here's the thing about legacies, IMO: if you read some of these posts, you can kinda see the connection between generations and players, too. so if we were to talk about Bryce's legacy--and consider that alongside other players with longer careers and deeper connections to the fanbases of their day--it's probably most fair to say that *this* generation of fan might have a more vivid memory of his time at NU than either older fans like myself that have decades of hoops personalities in the noggin' or the kids in the stands still waiting for the first heroes they can make their own. I think there are players we'd have much more vivid recollections of if they had played for better teams. This is also from a guy who was friends with Dave MacFarlane back in the day. And how many of you remember him now even though I think he was NUs first bonafide 7 footer (and a record setter himself at Plattsmouth). Anyhoo it's late and I'm tired so I'll give this topic up. Legacies depress me. I usually associate them with being dead.
  4. ha! you can't fool me, buster. clearly that was Jose Cuervo
  5. He'll be the answer to a couple of non-existent trivia game questions. It's always difficult to be a premier player on a crap team. History tends to let your memory collect an unusual amount of dust.
  6. wow, and i thought they had that one in hand. sorry you guys had to get tortured like the bad old days again.
  7. oh man, what a day to have had to work. figures. but....GBR?
  8. always love seeing porcaro on drums with (crap, and you thought the broken w's were bad)evon pre-Toto. thanks op.
  9. Middle nut you say? Hmmm....lemme see what I have in my jars. Sincerely, Dr. Frankenstein
  10. as befuddled as you all. clearly, someone slipped this entire program one hell of a mickey. me at the 5 minute mark, since this may be a thang tonight:
  11. I love this win, too, but I'm going with.....no?
  12. omg i'm almost in tears for my school. i can't believe it. finally, these guys too the right amount of steroids! yes!
  13. this movie's beginning to look entirely too familiar
  14. glad holtman took the to. be nice if fred settled his guys down, too. someday, i suppose
  15. these guys flirting with the old habits. verge has to stop taking those shots. he has to.
  16. this is really astonishing. and they've held this lead the entire half. this is not the same team I grew to despise.
  17. who the hell are these guys? granted I haven't watched a game in quite awhile, but who kidnapped the 2022 Huskers and replaced them with, well, basketball players?
  18. Is it ever possible to be kinda close AND have the cigar, too? i get more tired watching this team than they probably get playing.
  19. any scheme can work if it's executed well enough and better than an opponent can execute theirs. this is especially true in college. scheme's are only important inasmuch as they represent a moment of innovation. after that, all schemes lose their unique magic as all schemes can be and will be "solved". there are limitations to this notion if you intentionally go looking for historical extremes, but in the realm of reality, schemes have limited utility in and of themselves. I think most programs choose schemes primarily as a result of what 'system' may give them the best chance at victory relative to the types of recruits they're able to draw, hence playing Doc Ball against superior athletes, or Pistons ball against teams shy of physical contact, etc. As pretty much most others have remarked, I don't really have an issue with Hoiberg's scheme per se, I have an issue with his total inability to recruit players to make it work OR his utter inability to coach it properly.
  20. what's next? dogs and cats sleeping together? sigh.
  21. i've never quit in season before this one. I'm done picking these dudes for anything. just want this season of horrors to end.
  22. oh look, they lose again. sigh. just glad I'm not stuck having to see it. Kudos to you hanging tough still. You're better fans than I am. Everyone have a great night!
  23. i hate you all.....lol. hey, poverty ain't easy if the va's being cheap (double u)ith the disability and the disabiity's gotten (double effing u again, jerks)orse. i have a proper keyboard, but it's a pain to connect to this for posts so unless i'm going to type for a bit, i don't go thru the hassle of connecting it. i just typed this to help matt out. and notice i've avoided the dreaded (double e(double u)e) for the most part until I decided to turn this into a puzzle. cya for game time, but yeah, i'll keep it bad letter free as much as possible!
  24. hey matt, might vvant to change the date time stuff at the top of the post. you got the Iovva game up there.
