  1. Maybe population density and the ratio of rednecks to normal people have something to do with it as well?
  2. I don't understand why you can't buy all 3 off your options plus the knife, miter saw, fishing tackle and the upgrade in basketball seats. Just live the American dream and purchase all of them on your credit card, make the bare minimum monthly payment, and then leave all of these great toys to your family when you pass along with the remaining debt. Seems like a win-win for everyone!! Well, maybe its more of a win for you, but when you're dead, at least you've lived a hell of a life.
  3. I took an off-the-cuff post that I spent time questioning why on earth someone would feel comfortable making and I illustrated my uncomfortableness with it by making, for me, an uncomfortable statement. There has been a lot of good dialogue over the last day offering differing and interesting viewpoints. When I read Cip's initial comment, I immediately took it as satire and a jab at how the BLM movement has devolved and been hijacked by a group of people with more sinister motives. The problem today is that in a world of hyper political correctness and living with the rage of the "cancel culture", I guess you have to tread so carefully as to not say anything that could be taken out of context by anyone. A very slippery slope.
  4. Yes, therein lies the problem. The question is would you be comfortable if Fred asked Arop to leave the program if it meant getting this high end of a player. If this ever did come to pass, I wouldn't necessarily pass harsh judgement on Fred and I'm not exactly really sure how I would feel about it. That's the business of big time college athletics and I'm sure this stuff happens all the time in football but its more easily concealed and less talked about with a roster of 80+ on scholarship.
  5. My recollection was that, in addition to the 7 ft wingspan, he also has a 40 inch vertical. Well, that is a hair more explosive than my abilities but to each their own in passing judgement
  6. Completely agree. Even though we offered a year ago, it just feels like we are a little late to this party. Fortunately, the party isn't over so perhaps we get to take the girl, or ugh mythical unicorn home with us. We are overdue here!!!
  7. Well, looks like we are going to have to make up some ground and make a strong push as he doesn't list us as schools that are pushing hard for his services. Hopefully, our open scholarship and immediate path to some playing time are attractive enough to him. He looks like he already has some muscle mass as well, which bodes well for his development. https://www.zagsblog.com/2020/04/18/gabe-wiznitzer-still-considering-reclassification-talks-recruitment/
  8. I really hope we land him but I'm not as optimistic as I was several weeks ago. It feels like every team's fan base in his final six all feel confident that Sanogo will land at their school. Yesterday the OWH put out the article below. The timing of the article seems ironic considering what Hoiberg said today. Myabe I'm reading too much into it but I wonder if Heady has some inside information and that Sanogo is likely going to land elsewhere. If we find out next week that is the case, Heady looks pretty smart and can point to the article he just wrote about why we don't need a big man in Hoiberg's system - which, I actually agree with. Anyways, I hope I'm wrong as this kid seems like the unique big that runs the court in a way that would be very conducive to Hoiberg's system. https://www.omaha.com/sports/college/huskers/plus/nebraska-basketball-doesnt-need-a-big-man-its-worked-for-fred-hoiberg-before/article_2b718a30-2f71-518f-ba93-95cebd4ca0ab.html
  9. Ha, I guess not everyone can shoot 75% plus. He did shoot almost 43% from three and a whopping 56% from the field. He's a good shooter so a year off likely fixes or improves the FT%. I'm sure we are placing feelers.
  10. That was my initial thought as well but having thought about it, I don't think that is going to be a determining factor. Hypothetically, if he reclassifies to 2020 and the 2020-2021 season is cancelled, he's still a freshman when the 2021-2022 season starts. A cancelled season simply means he gets an extra year of free room and board, gets a year's worth of classes under his belt, and gets the likely benefit of using the basketball facilities and weight room while maintaining his 4 years of eligibility. And, if the college season is cancelled, i suspect most high school seasons will be as well. Perhaps he's just debating whether or not he wants to skip a year of high school and leave his family and friends a year early.
  11. Found this perusing the internet and it looks like we may be waiting awhile on this one
  12. Surprising considering Creighton pays more than the G league.
  13. So roughly the equivalent of 100x more than we brought back heading into last season! Also, I agree it sucks to see so many kids leaving but at the end of the day, we won 7 games last year. Things will get better.
  14. Is it just me or does this kid have the looks of someone that should play at Iowa?! I certainly hope he ends up here.
  15. Unfortunately that makes too much sense so I am very skeptical the NCAA allows it!
