  1. Breidenbach def is coming back imo. Hes a team guy and was really putting stuff together.
  2. I dont think it was they didnt have it figured out, IMO just a stubbornness to change. I think when you see the system work, i.e Colorado there is propensity to "play through it" and not second guess. Obviously hind sight is 20/20.. but I think much like Frost- Fred came in thinking the Big 10 was going to adjust to him, and it just hasnt worked.
  3. Just some thoughts on what needs to happen this off-season. Stay old - I think bringing Walker and or Trey back is important for next year’s success. For a school like Nebraska, frankly any Big 10 program being old is a key to success. This also means limiting turnover. I think apart from 1 or 2- we need to bring this roster back. We need to build. Establish a work ethic and culture. Keep guys around- and together. Recruiting - I think this will be the biggest shift in philosophy we will see. Really would like to stay away from journeyman 1 year eligibility players, unless it is a shot at someone like a Bryce McGowens. Just think it takes a lot of time to get them to buy in, mesh, and their emotional investment doesnt seem as strong. The talent level is absolutely there. Meshing the roster into a cohesive unit… not so much. It started to come together the last few weeks as we saw. Too little too late. Recruiting girth with skill- is something we must have. I think we will see a shift in recruiting. I think we are going to see a lot of current players come back. I think cohesion is going to be a priority. Physicality - We need to be stronger obviously. I think we have recruited a physical big in Keita. Beyond recruiting I think we need to teach it. Im not so sure we have, maybe im wrong, but reboundig is a mindset- and we gotta get tougher. Defense - We need a fresh look. Need fresh ideas. I hope Fred brings in a D coordinater that has Big 10 basketball experience.
  4. Assuming we just lose the 3, im guessing we are after a point, shooter and a big?
  5. I like having a bruiser like Shamiel.. but having another 3 pt threat.. gosh that means there will be yet another floor spacer w experience. Cut, cut, pass,pass,kick, kick to Lat, Lakes, Tomminaga, Bryce... pick your poison. Have fun guarding that
  6. Here is how i see things shaking out... Yvan and Shamiel move on. Leaves us with this: T McGowens B McGowens Banton Lat Walker Breidenbach Eduardo Tomminaga Lakes Wood I also really think Thor or/and Kobe come back, remember they don’t count against scholarships. This leaves us 3 to recruit and we need a true point, and 2 sharpshooters. This is my take.
  7. We will lose 2 more im guessing. Gives us a chance for a point guard and a shooter.
  8. Its about recruiting to the system. Gonna land, gonna miss. The key is to never stray from the system. We took a chance on a kid early in Fred’s tenure and it didnt pan out. The great thing is we have a core of players that do fit, and three coming in that all add something to the current roster. We will be fine.
  9. This is a system program. Bottom line. You either conform and do what your asked- or you are out. Its the right decision. Addition by subtraction.
  10. I feel the sarcasm. I dont understand fans like yourself that are apathetic, especially in year 3.. i mean you will have your starting 5 return, you add a 5 star.. and more shooting. How in the heck can you not expect 15 wins AT LEAST?
