  1. What's the story with this? I seem to recall several years ago that someone (maybe a poster on this board?) had Lutz (and maybe some other coaches) paged at a basketball game or tournament somewhere? (Maybe it was at a Creighton game?) The details are hazy for me. I remember thinking that I was surprised that the announcers let the page go through. This was during the Collier era, I believe? Anyone in the know who can remind me, I'd be interested in hearing the details of this HHC lore.
  2. Not to be too conspiratorial, but he did like this tweet from Donovan Williams within the past 24 hours. That said, there is not a ton of optimism about Green from husker media types.
  3. I am proud of this team and what they've accomplished. I'm glad to have been a fan during an immensely entertaining season in which stand-up young men stood up for their beliefs and played some dang-good basketball in less-than-ideal conditions (several one-day preps, high pressure at the end of the season, and a need to develop chemistry quickly). Very proud indeed.
  4. Stop shooting three's. I know they're open shots, but get inside...
  5. The team apparently considered but voted against boycotting the game on Saturday (http://www.omaha.com/news/plus/husker-basketball-team-considered-boycott-over-white-nationalist-on/article_c00f5555-c804-55bf-9cba-494e4d0cbfdd.html). I'm very proud of this team, and their willingness to even consider boycotting a game and hurting their NCAA chances, for the sake of a more just and equitable society. I am glad that they ultimately decided to play the game, not only because of my desire to see them make the tournament, but also because I do think that it would have given the white supremacist a huge amount of power if they would have cancelled a basketball game because of him. Better to use their position of power to speak about justice and to help enact positive change through the video they plan. I honestly think that it bodes really well for their ability to succeed the remainder of this season--they have their priorities in order and so can take a step back and approach each game with a more calm mindset. And, more importantly (though it's a perspective from which I don't often consider Nebrasketball), it bodes well for these players to succeed in life. Good on them and good on coach Miles and staff. Hate will never win.
  6. The Quadrant records were nice to see. It really makes me wonder how precisely the committee plans to use quadrants. Compare us to Western Kentucky: Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 WKU 1-2 3-0 4-5 7-0 NEB 0-5 2-3 7-0 8-0 They have an advantage in Q1, and in Q2, but we have a clear and decisive advantage in Q3. We have clearly shown we are better than that quadrant. They have shown (if anything) that they're not. How do you balance good wins v. bad losses? Will be very interesting to see. Thanks to all for posting and updating these!
  7. Let them on the wagon. If Nebrasketball has some success and fans jump on the bandwagon, and we have excitement around the program, we could finally have sustainable success rather than just a flash here or there. It will be good for our team and we will always know that we were there through the tough years.
