  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. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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!!!
  6. 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/
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Found this perusing the internet and it looks like we may be waiting awhile on this one
  11. Surprising considering Creighton pays more than the G league.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Unfortunately that makes too much sense so I am very skeptical the NCAA allows it!
  15. Ok, sorry for multiple entries but this is too good to not share. HOWEVER, DISCLAIMER....this contains inappropriate language so do not play loudly at work or in front of kids!!!!
  16. Maybe it's just me but being locked down for months on end is leading to some binge/stress eating and some undesirable results. I suspect I am not alone so we should embrace the consequences!!
  17. I'm glad we are playing in Manhattan when will be a Top 10 team as opposed to playing them there as we are still putting the pieces in place! I'm mixing koolaid with several different varieties of alcohol to pass the shelter in place time!
  18. At one point I was focusing a lot of attention on Kate Upton but the feeling wasn't apparently mutual.
  19. I guess that means we didn't miss the tournament this year. A perfect year for our season to not count against us!!! It would really be unfortunate to have a team ranked #7 in the country, let's say that team also wore blue, and then to have the tournament just cancelled as if the season didn't happen!
  20. Wow, exceptionally well played!!! Now you just need to incorporate an angry and depressed looking Fran McCaffrey in the video!
  21. Kansas is way out in front of their cheating scandal. If you don't participate, they can't punish you for it!!!
  22. Probably depends on how old your wife is and how long you have been married
  23. I am claiming a 4th place finish in the BIG tournament for Nebraska this year! Sorry, need a little levity.
  24. You found the Unicorn...a sensible take on Twitter!!!
