  1. Hopefully this doesn’t bleed in to basketball. This team is going to need some non con games to jell.
  2. Not what I heard....I’ve heard he told coaches he lost interest in playing basketball and wants to focus on the BLM movement. Could be BS. Guess we will see if he ends up anywhere. Unfortunate because he would have helped out quite a bit
  3. I don’t think football is a high priority for JD. Seems like he was burned out. At this point it sounds pretty doubtful he will be returning. Hopefully we now have enough quality depth where Wandale can strictly play WR. Between him and Manning we should be fine at WR as long as they stay healthy.
  4. He can really run the floor. That alone may get him playing time
  5. Was looking forward to watching him vs the Huskers the next two years. I’ve always liked Okie St. Not a believer in the coach but they won’t be short on talent.
  6. This is a pretty huge get. As I posted previously, I watched quite a few Pitt games last year and Trey is a A+ athlete who imo has a stroke that will really flourish under Hoiberg. He will be a very good fit in Hoiberg’s spaced offense.
  7. Solely? No...probably not. Are you saying Hoiberg continuing to recruit other guards, more specifically...other guards that as of right now have more experience than Donovan...wasn’t a factor in his decision? If so, I can only assume you believe Donovan is a liar. So yes, based on his comments and the roster Hoiberg was wanting to assemble he was afraid of competition. Donovan basically said so himself...again, unless you think he is lying for some odd reason. Again, I’m not going to sit here and say Donovan is not some team player because I doubt that to be true. But to place all the blame on Hoiberg for his decommitment is pretty laughable considering Donovan’s words and actions after the fact.
  8. I have no idea if Donovan is poor team player, Miles probably wouldn’t have recruited him if so. With that said, I do know what he said after he decommited. Multiple times bringing up how Nebraska is only wanting to go after JUCO’s and transfers going forward. To say that all Hoiberg had to do was show him a little attention doesnt sound to be the case. Now, had you said all Hoiberg had to do was stop recruiting other guards....then maybe you would have been on to something.
  9. Please don’t mention this, Creighton fans would prefer to bash Hoiberg and Nebraska for throwing Williams to “the trash.” But when you ask why Mcdermott didn’t offer....silence.
  10. Having bet many of Pitt games this past year I will say McGowens has a lot of potential. Pitt’s offense in general was just out of funk most games it seemed. I would be very happy with landing Trey.
  11. Not sure how much stock you can put in to Kobe’s stats. He was obviously unhappy...to the point that his teammates said they would find him crying at halftime. That’s certainly going to effect your play. No offense to Burke who I think could be a very solid player under a different system but he doesn’t have the natural talent that King does IMO.
  12. Just guessing off the limited tape I’ve seen of him, I expect him to be an upgrade from Mack in terms of scoring and shooting. But, he won’t be as good of a distributor. I think Mack was pretty special in that regard so no surprise there.
  13. Stevenson is also more than capable of playing the guard position.
  14. I think that answers our “who is going to start at PG” question.
  15. His original posting did not have that part in the body but he did say on his Instagram message that he would keep his eligibility. He reposted adding that message In the body of the post which is smart because that’s what everyone was reading and didn’t see his message at the bottom.
  16. It may all hinge on how transfers will be handled. I don’t see him wanting to sit out a year. While the suspensions were warranted they were all pretty small in nature outside of missing curfew. Will he mature in the offseason? Not sure. If he’s serious about making a run at the NBA he will have to. I would love to see him on the court with a few guys that can put the ball in the hoop.
  17. If this were true, wouldn’t he hire an agent? Or are you thinking he will transfer?
  18. Hypothetically couldn’t it be Whitt?
  19. He’s not hiring an agent. So unless he plans on hiring an agent down the road or transferring and sitting out, he will be back. Assuming Hoiberg wants him back that is.
  20. The media blasting Fred and making assumptions is quite hilarious. Mass hysteria. Feed it.
  21. It’s me guys. I can run a 4.3 forty and bench press 450 pounds. And at one point in my basketball career, Marlon Lucky referred to me as JJ Reddick at the rec center.
  22. Easley is a different story because I’m sure he knows his scholarship will likely be utilized elsewhere after the spring. Id be all for him staying but I think he has also proven he could land at a mid major school and get a free ride. Arop, I just don’t see it unless he develops his shot. I don’t see much PT for him in the future which probably means he opts to transfer.
  23. Good luck to Dachon, he was put in a tough position. I think he tried to conform with Hoiberg’s style of play but I don’t think it really fits his game. He should be an attractive grad transfer I would believe.
  24. In the months of December and January he shot 35% front he field. In February he was at 54% and March 41%. In March he’s averaging nearly 5 more boards per game than January. None of his numbers scream all American obviously but him in March compared to a few months ago, he’s better. Hoiberg has said many times that his guys make big leaps from year 1 to 2. Considering his age and body type I think we can expect him to be much improved next year.
  25. Iowa St hovered around 35-37% from deep under Hoiberg. Solid, but not great. But, they were elite from inside the arc under him when he got his players in. We know Fred dislikes the mid range game which to me says they were great around the rim. I can see next years team hover around that 3PT percentage above...but we need to get far better around the rim. And I think we will we with the big bodies we have coming in. Stevenson, Allen, and Kobe are all big bodied guards who can get to the rack. Iowa St 2PT% under Hoiberg and national ranking 2011-47.8 #174 2012-50.3 #75 2013-51.9 #29 2014-54.4 #9 2015-54.3 #11 Notice the trajectory. This years team is shooting 46.7% inside the arc. Don’t be surprised if we are around that 50% number next year.
