  1. ? I'm not that delusional. I chuckle at the notion of it though. In reality the following gif is more appropriate to my own absurd post.
  2. I have some free time today. Probably too much as you'll see in this post which will offer some absurd hypotheticals... for fun of course. ? In Hoiberg's FIRST season we win our FIRST Big Ten conference title (either regular season or tournament) while also winning our FIRST ever NCAA tournament game and upsetting our way through the rest of the bracket to winning our FIRST NCAA title.
  3. A funny Parcells tidbit. When the Jets selected Frost in the draft as a Safety and afterwards during the post-draft presser, Parcells was asked by the media why they took a gamble on someone who never played a defensive position in college? His response: "(It) is a little bit of a gamble," Parcells said following the draft. "People in the league I respect have told me, 'I don't think you can make this work.'" The hall of famer who began his coaching career at Hastings College in Nebraska joked to Frost that if they couldn't figure things out, t
  4. redsteve, Firstly let me state that I'm not attacking you three (redsteve, caveman & Fastbreaker) on a personal level. I'm debating the merits of your points and concerns. Which is why I quoted the parts of the post that appears to portray Cook in an unfavorable light. And while I understand that your post as well as the other two quoted are your own personal opinions, I merely offered a counterpoint with evidence. The tricky thing as always when it comes to forum postings is it's easy to misinterpret certain passages of a post. So when I read the part where you
  5. @caveman The above mentioned quotes are what prompted my lengthy reply. It portrays Cook in an unflattering light. I presented some historical evidence contrary to your concerns here. Greicha was a volleyball scholarship player. Hence volleyball took precedence. So logic dictates that in Ware's case if she's a basketball scholarship player, then that'll likely take precedence. I followed that up by showing that Cook is not a dictator. He can't and won't force Ware into a situation if it's contrary to the agreement already set with Coach Williams.
  6. Thought I'd share this historical nugget for those of you not familiar. If you remember former Head Coach Paul Sanderford, who preceded Connie Yori at Nebraska, he and Terry Pettit were employed at Louisburg College in North Carolina in the late 70's. by Mike Babcock A bulletin advertising an opening for the head volleyball coach’s job at Nebraska had been discarded in a wastebasket in the coaches’ office at Louisburg College. Paul Sanderford, the first-year head coach of the women’s basketball team at the North Carolina junior college, retrieved the bulletin from the
  7. Greichaly Cepero was a Pettit recruit. She was a true freshman when Pettit coached his final season at NU. She was also here on a Volleyball scholarship, so naturally that was going to take precedence to Basketball. Therefore comparing Ware's potential situation to Cepero's is moot. Cook already has his recruiting pieces in place through 2022. In other words, he has no scholarships available until then. Another thing to consider too is that Ware was never on his recruiting radar over the past few years. Otherwise Ware would've gotten an offer when she was a freshman or sopho
  8. They don't have a highlight reel for his twin Charlie yet, but if/when they do I'll create a new thread for him.
  9. My brother sent this to me today. His 5 yr. old son (huge Huskers fan) made it on his computer and thought it'd be funny if the new Huskers logo for the basketball floor turned out like this instead. He thinks we should just call our basketball team Hoiskers going forward. I told him "hey there's an idea for a t-shirt." :D
  10. Playing like he's been in the NFL for years. See clip below where he blows up a Bengal at the goal line. Love seeing a homegrown Nebraska kid having success at the highest level.
  11. Quote from LJS: During the first quarter of Saturday's game, the athletic department announced that Lue’s jersey will be formally retired Feb. 2 during the Huskers’ game against Michigan State. The Cleveland Cavaliers head coach will be able to be in attendance, despite it being during the NBA season. The Cavs play Feb. 1, then are off until Feb. 4. http://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/football/sideline-chatter-nba-champion-lue-back-in-lincoln/article_ba4113cb-55e9-5ba5-97a5-7dccaea141c1.html
