  1. Not gonna lie, I’m surprised so many in here are big enough Nebrasketball fans to post on message boards yet sit in the nosebleeds. Basketball games are an entirely different experience up close. Totally worth the upcharge, especially since Nebrasketball games are cheap.
  2. Bryce probably is the 4th or 5th best player right now. What many Husker fans don’t realize is that unless you’re a top 10 recruit, you likely aren’t going to be an absolute star freshman. Some blossom into stars by the end of the year, but most of the backend five stars are just solid role players right off the bat. That’s what Bryce looks to be right now, but eventually it’ll all click for him. He’s clearly very talented.
  3. Yeah for sure. There's still time for it to come to fruition. I'm not going to write him off just yet.
  4. Agree... I don't know why people are so offended by this. I don't know if the Cuse kid meant it as an insult... he may have simply stated what he thought about when he heard they were going to Nebraska. And for those that took it as an insult... if you're insecure about living in a state with a low population, why don't you leave?
  5. Not claiming what he says is true. Just passing on what I saw. I guess we'll find out soon.
  6. From Brett Edwards, who's apparently a sportscaster in Lincoln? "I've been hearing not so great things about the Nebraska MBB team. Look for some things to shake out here soon. That's all I can say for now" Apparently it wasn't all he could say for now, as he followed it with this tweet: "It's mostly regarding possible roster attrition"
  7. Yes. You know "a dream come true" can be used to describe something that's far-fetched, right?
  8. Actually, I'm not assuming that at all. But I am saying that it's worth the try.
  9. This exactly. We’ll see if they can take the next step next year. But I have serious doubts because of our lack of size. How many times did a big man have a career game against us over the last couple months? That kid tonight probably dunked on us five times. Unless we start scoring like Villanova, it’s going to continue to be hard to overcome that.
  10. We’ve had three crappy coaches in a row. That doesn’t mean we’ll never get a good one.
  11. By that I meant a typical NIT team. Clearly better than an average team. But yes, I definitely think this is not the March Madness worthy team that you think it is.
  12. I think tonight provided a clear argument that we’d be no better than 19-15 if we played the same schedules as the teams to which you refer. Metrics are there for a reason. They aren’t perfect, but they help paint a clearer picture than simply comparing 22 wins vs 19. We beat up on mediocre teams and had three or four nice wins at home. Sad fact is that we aren’t used to seeing good basketball in Lincoln. When we finally got a team that was competent, we held them with high regard in our minds. Looking back, this is an average NIT squad, and I’m afraid it’s the apex for Timmy here. Unfortunately, he bought himself another year. No tournament next year and he better not be back in 2020.
  13. Yeah, I'm just basing it on the general vibe of the board. I've definitely seen people say we'll be a consistently ranked team next year, too. I've felt that way at times as well, so maybe my post was more directed towards my past opinions than anyone else's specifically haha. I agree that the continuity and being able to start a season already knowing our identity should be helpful in getting off to a fast start. For now, I'm kind of expecting something like an 8 seed type of season, but if the balls bounce our way I could see something better than that, and if they don't, I could see another NIT bid. We'll see what happens with Palmer, Copeland, and Jordy. And we'll see how effective players like Allen, Nana, Thorir, and Xavier Johnson can be in replacing the lost production of Taylor and Gill.
