  1. Is there any possibility of having an offense this year? UC riverside shot lights out from behind the 3 point line tonight. Not every team is going to shoot like they did. But there has to be someone that can score for us if we have any chance to win this year.
  2. It’s great to get a couple wins. But I’m wondering how good is the quality of the teams we are playing over in Italy? Are they equivalent to college teams in the US or what?
  3. Isaiah made the right choice, Not returning. His Mavs contract is official with him getting 6.7 million over 4 years with a two year guarantee. So happy for him. He now needs to sign a deal with Nike for the state of Nebraska !
  4. So what is everyone’s guess about what slot Isaiah will be drafted tonight. I’ve seen anywhere from 27-44 lately. Im going to say the 34th spot to the 76ers
  5. Sad to know he won’t suit up for the huskers ever again. But so exciting to see him go to the next level and realize his potential. Keep the clips coming Gmaw!
  6. The 29th of May is finally here. This is the deadline. Declaration day. What’s he gonna do?
  7. How many guys are at pro day? And all nba teams are there to watch? How did Isaiah finish up?
  8. Can someone post the link to the stats for everyone at the combine and how they tested in various drills or qualities?
  9. I watched some film on him as well. He looked quick and strong , but was playing most of his game on the ground. I guess he’s only 17, so I’m sure he will learn to get above the rim. Looks like a lot of potential.
  10. Found this yesterday. Interesting information. From Hail Varsity by Derek Peterson Love or Hate : Roby’s Move, Hoiberg’s Reset, Eratad’s Fall Isaiah Roby has an NBA Draft Combine invite. He’s one of only 66 players to have that. He’s hoping to become the first Husker drafted since 1999. A report from Syracuse.com’s Donna Ditota gave a pretty good indication of what that combine invite means for Roby’s draft prospects: In the last five years, 43 of the 60 draft picks on averaged were combine participants. In the last five years, there have only been a total of 11 college players drafted who didn’t participate in the combine (international guys are growing in popularity). I think Roby’s decision should have been made after securing a combine invite. He’ll test well in the athletic portions of the event, set to take place May 15-19. He looks the part of an NBA player, possessing the size and versatility a team will always take a chance on. ESPN’s recent mock draft has him 37th to the Mavericks. While that’s second round, it’s still early second round, which means good things. According to NBC Sports, 65 of the 72 college players selected between 31st and 45th of the last six drafts (90.3 percent) signed a guaranteed contract from an NBA team, and only two college players taken in the top 40 since 2012 didn’t get a guaranteed contract during their first season as a pro. Creighton’s Khyri Thomas went 38th to the Pistons last season and signed a three-year, $3.92 million deal with the first two years guaranteed. One spot earlier — Roby’s projected spot — Gary Clark Jr. went to the Blazers and signed a fully guaranteed three-year deal. The Nets drafted Rodions Kurucs with the 40th pick in the draft and gave him a four-year, $6.96 million deal with the first three years guaranteed. All these things are good things for Roby. Playing in the NBA is the dream and he seems incredibly close to achieving that dream. He doesn’t really owe Nebraska much at this point; the team he’d be returning to would feature one player he’s played with at Nebraska, a coaching staff he doesn’t know and a system he’s new to. The NBA’s looking better and better. ..........
  11. I found out tonight he does not have to declare on May 29th one way or the other since he was invited to the combine. If he does not get drafted he comes back. If he’s drafted he does not come back. May 29th is irrelevant. I heard he had a great tryout with the Bulls today. The combine starts Tuesday.
  12. So if he goes undrafted he can return for his senior year and this “he must declare by May 29th “ is not accurate?
  13. So help me out here. I have heard two different things. Scenario #1 since Isaiah was invited to the NBA combine he does not have to declare he is going pro and can see if he gets drafted and if he gets drafted he goes with the team that picks him and if he does not get drafted he can go back to nebrasaka for his senior year. Scenerio #2 he has too declare by May 29th if he will go through the draft and then is not allowed to return to Nebraska for his senior year if he goes through the draft. which way is it?
  14. From what I can see 19 out of the 30 second rounders in 2018 had guaranteed contracts for one year or more for millions of dollars. I’ve put this link on here before but here it is again. https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2018/10/recap-of-2018-nba-draft-pick-signings.html
  15. Sports illustrated in their analysis of him recently said he was likely underutilized offensively in part due to selfish guards. That’s one way to put it , and I agree that Palmer rarely looked for him near to or breaking to the basket. I would guess he would have increased his scoring considerably if that had occurred.
  16. How could you not like Tim Miles. A class act. A nice man. A good guy. A great representative for Nebraska on and off the court. The last few years have been so exciting at times. This year fell short and ultimately that was it. I will miss him.
  17. I think he has another semester before he can graduate. Also here is a link that tells what kind of money is out there for second rounders in the NBA. This kind of money is hard to pass up. You never know when you will tear your ACL (Copeland). https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2018/10/recap-of-2018-nba-draft-pick-signings.html He did have a phenomenal last home game at PBA . Too bad his likely last game as a husker last night was not like last weeks home game.
  18. I love Johnny , but you know your in trouble when he has more points than Isaiah and James combined at the half.
  19. Copeland , Glynn , Tanner, and Palmer are all gone. He would be the only returning senior. We all know Isaiah has aspirations to play in the NBA. It seems that the majority of those drafted these days are freshmen or sophomores. Looking at his future from Isaiah’s possible perspective , does coming back for his senior year improve his chances in the nba draft? It seems nearly a done deal that there will be a new coach in Nebraska. New coach and a new system. It seems to me that with the big three seniors leaving and tanner as well that there will be less overall talent next year on the floor for the huskers than this year. Could be a long season. Would a losing season hurt his chances of making the nba? Isaiah would likely be playing the 5 spot again for the huskers quite a bit of the time , not his natural position. He would seemingly be the featured scorer which could be good for him as he doesn’t seem to have ever allowed himself to step into that roll. I’m not sure he is capable of that roll. He had so many opportunities after Copeland went down to step up and score and did not do it most of the time. Was it because it’s not the kind of player he is? Did he lack confidence? Was he too unselfish? Was he just not capable of stepping up and becoming a consistent scorer? Is he capable of making it in the nba or was this his audition down the stretch this season in the big ten and he did not pass the test? He has big games from time to time and he does amazing things from time to time. Will coming back help or hurt him? Has he showed enough? ESPNs mock NBA draft online had him at 32 this past week even after the disappointing slide of the Huskers this season and Isaiah’s ups and downs. What do you think ?
  20. Why do all the trees in Nebraska lean to the east.............. because Iowa sucks!
  21. Isaiah wearing Copeland’s number 14 today to honor the glue that held this team together on senior day.
