  1. More of the same, just another version ... Nebraska women’s coach Amy Williams may be looking at the best team she has had in her seven seasons running the show. The Huskers will get the chance to prove it against a loaded slate. Nebraska is ranked No. 22 in the ESPN preseason rankings and No. 20 in the way-too-early rankings released right after the 2021-22 season ended. It returns Alexis Markowski, the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, plus All-Big Ten players Sam Haiby, Jaz Shelley and Isabelle Bourne and starting guard Allison Weidner. That strong core group will face off against No. 6 Iowa, No. 15 Ohio State, No. 18 Maryland and Michigan, which reached the Elite Eight last season. The Huskers will also match up with Michigan State, Northwestern, Penn State, Wisconsin and Illinois. Those are their home games, but they will travel to face No. 12 Indiana as well, in addition to games at Minnesota, Purdue and Rutgers. The double-play opponents are Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Northwestern and Illinois While football and men’s basketball are each in make-or-break years under Scott Frost and Hoiberg, the main women’s programs in the fall and winter months continue to surge. It remains to be seen if there will be fireworks for the men’s programs, but the women figure to put on a show a few months from now at the Devaney Center and Pinnacle Bank Arena.
  2. I wonder when our local NIL businesses will start showing Britt Prince some Husker love? Different times for sure.
  3. Your 'under the radar' Huskers? Don't leave us hanging here.
  4. Darin Erstad jumps out to me, as someone who excelled in 2 sports. Matt Davison did OK. To a lesser extent, we've had athletes compete in Volleyball and WBB, but I don't think tried it for more than a year or so. Cepero and Havers come to mind. Probably others. Meyers could definitely compete in volleyball and track. Names not jumping out to me, but I think we've had several football players compete in track over the years. Just thinking about it, highlights how special Mendelson is (or at least, we hope she is).
  5. There is an article in the LJS today regarding Mendelson and the Huskers. Below is an excerpt from it, with a mention of Brady and Dillard. ********************** Summer practice begins: The Huskers began summer practice Monday. The team started with a smaller group but will be welcoming players back as the summer proceeds. Freshman Callin Hake from Minnesota graduated Friday and will report to Lincoln this weekend. Jaz Shelley and Isabelle Bourne went home to Australia and will join the team in a few weeks. Sam Haiby had offseason shoulder surgery. She’s doing some workouts but hasn’t been cleared for shooting drills yet. Nebraska is expected to have all five starters from the end of last season back — Allison Weidner, Alexis Markowski, Shelley, Bourne and Haiby. Guards Trinity Brady and Nailah Dillard are both practicing after missing all of last season with injuries.
  6. Odds might be long, but I like us throwing our hat in the ring. You never know.
  7. That would be one heck of a get. The young lady is getting quite a bit of attention. Copied this from the net; UT is the 11th school to offer the 5-foot-10 guard. Clemson, Vanderbilt, Austin Peay, Memphis, Oklahoma State and Middle Tennessee State have also offered. Last summer, UConn and South Carolina showed up at Berry's AAU games, and Louisville made multiple trips to see Berry play.
  8. I hope she proves to be a great hire. I had fingers crossed for someone with Power 5 experience, but imagine the 'fit' is just as important. Good Luck, and welcome to the Huskers, Jessica.
  9. There is a short article in today's LJS regarding Popa. She is no longer on the team. She has not put her name in the Transfer Portal. And, as of now, she will remain a student of UNL. That was it.
  10. My concern is more general, not needing an immediate response to the Popa situation (whatever it is). It would clear things up if something was said. With regards to Popa, I have wondered for a year if she was making any progress. For a couple of years; is Trinity Brady in our long range plans? We wondered about Dillard. Any updates on Mendelson? I'm not looking for a violation of HIPAA, just general info with regards to our roster and staff. We care. We're interested. Throw us a bone. Then again, maybe no one is covering the sport between seasons. Hard to share information if no one asks, "what's going on"?
  11. This seems to reflect the original discussion. We don't know. Why not disclose tidbits of information that isn't protected? It's been like pulling teeth getting advance recruiting info the last few years. Sam provides some updates on occasion. Others on this site do excellent research. How was Popa coming along? Fans are thirsty for any insight the program could share. Seems we could be given a bit more consideration. If one thinks we are being ignored, or taken for granted, it can lead to some resentment towards the staff. I'd be a little more tolerant if I felt better informed. OK, that's my $.02 for the day.

  12. Sometimes a portal transfer and a familiar coach wind up at the same school. Two birds with one stone (wishful thinking).
  13. Another big and/or a 4 seems high priority. Bella left a hole. Markowski is a stud, but was a bit foul prone. I don't trust officials in this conference, would love to have more depth at her position. Mendelson could be great, but is unproven and will be part time. Hiring a stud recruiter to fill the coaching vacancy, could help.
  14. In your opinion, was she encouraged to move on?
  15. That sucks. I was cautiously optimistic, she would contribute this year. Is there any sense of urgency to add replacement pieces to our roster (and staff)? We have some holes to fill.
  16. That would work for me.
  17. Any thoughts to giving extra consideration to a minority hire, preferably female? There is definitely no shortage of qualified individuals that meet this criteria.
  18. Replacement coach, wishful thinking..... I wonder if Shimmy Gray-Miller would have any interest in coming back? Or, maybe Yvonne Turner has had enough of Pro ball and is ready for a new career path? Wasn't she playing in Russia somewhat recently?
  19. Hate to say it, but she is the type player/shooter that would fit in the Creighton system.
  20. Hi rand909. If you would like a little more info on this, there is mention of it, and a couple articles in the "2022 Recruits" thread (end of page 4 and most of page 5). I share your enthusiasm for our latest additon. GBR
  21. Just read in the LJS, Bella is headed to TCU for her final year. Best of luck, and thanks Bella.
  22. Krull, Haiby, Weidner, and Shelley, would give Coach Williams plenty of options at the point and off guard positions. Don't know myself, but have the impression, Krull is the type teammate that will be a nice fit with our ladies. GBR
  23. I also posted this in another thread. This thread might be more appropriate. Seven weeks after Chuck Love was suspended as associate head coach for the Nebraska women’s basketball team, he continues to be paid and no timetable is set to resolve his employment status. Jeffery Griesch, the senior associate communications director for the women’s basketball team, told UNLimited Sports that Love’s suspension “is a legal and human resources matter at UNL,” and he knows of no timeline to settle the issue. “The announcement of any change in status won’t occur until the human resource/legal issues are resolved,” he said in an email. Ashley Scoggin, a redshirt sophomore on the basketball team, left the team the same day as Love was suspended, though no information has been released connecting those two actions. Shortly after the suspension, head coach Amy Willams declined to comment on a connection between the disciplinary actions. “That’s something that a lot of people have been involved in and I think we’ll leave it at that,” Williams said. Griesch told UNLimted Sports that while Scoggin is no longer a part of the roster, she still remains on scholarship. Scoggin is able to access all of UNL’s academic resources as well. Griesch’s response was the first comment from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln about Love’s status since he was suspended.
