  1. Didn't see anything in that video not to like.
  2. I think this is the method used by most schools that aren't blue bloods.
  3. I was a Biology major so spent lots of time in Bruner Hall from 83-87.
  4. But you could coach! You obviously got more out of that advanced basketball class than I did.
  5. Let's bump the points to 6 as I'm hoping he can knock down a couple of 3's per game.
  6. If you are a competitor, you want to compete/play, plain and simple. This move will give Charlie a better chance to do just that, plus it will save him a boat load of money. Thanks for your time as a Husker and best of luck!
  7. Cross took some shots when he shouldn't have, but my point is Cross missed a lot of open looks that were designed for him to take. Let's hope he and the rest of his teammates shoot a higher percentage in year two. I'm not so sure Allen will be the 'MAN' or anyone else on this team, but hopefully most will have the ability to step up on any given night and deliver when needed.
  8. I agree King gets the waiver and Cross will be in the rotation. I don't think Cross needs to be more discriminate with his shot selection, he just needs to knock more of those open looks down. He wouldn't have been taking all those 3's if Fred hadn't given him the green light. I have a hunch that Walker is going to be better than most fans are thinking. He's plenty athletic and is more skilled than Ivan. Primary ball handlers should be Webster and Banton, so barring foul trouble (or if McGowens gets a waiver), one of these guys should be on the floor at all times. Besides that, I think King, Allen, Stevenson, Walker, Ivan, Thor, Cross and Mayen are all a part of the rotation.
  9. Plus 30 pounds or Andrew Drevo.
  10. I believe I heard that all of the players have left Lincoln and even if they were in town, I'm not sure if they would have access to all of what you mentioned.
  11. I would think slim to none, but who knows. From a roster management standpoint I think it would be better to have him sit a year and take over the point when Webster moves on. I really hope King gets a waiver, but more than that, I hope there is a basketball season in the fall.
  12. Although Webster described himself as a score first point guard, hopefully he has some play making ability too.
  13. Talking about who has played together and who hasn't. Not class year. Even so, five of those guys were in the program already and contributors at 10 minutes a game or more. They're not really that close to us in terms of experience. I realize they've got a new coach and are learning a new system, but they've got much more experience both in terms of games played and playing together than we do. Hollins 1021 min - Gallegos 1237 min Hollins 1013 min - Shields 804 min Eliason 452 min - Rivers 829 min Ahanmisi 357 min - Parker 681 min Osenieks 284 min - Peltz 213 min Walker 198 min 3325 minutes 3083 minutes. FWIW. Peltz. lol. You just listed almost all of Minnesota's rotation. You're missing about half of Nebraska's. Minnesota's core group is vastly more experienced than Nebraska's. The Hollins kids have more experience playing together. The rest of their players are not vastly more experienced than what we returned when it comes to playing together. Two of the players listed primarily played mop up minutes last year as well. JMO. Laugh if you want.

FWIW.
  15. How long has that group played together on the same team? I bet you can't find a team in the BIG that has less experience playing together than ours. FWIW, Illinois and Indiana are just as inexperienced as we are and Minnesota isn't far behind.
  16. Frankly, we need another point guard for next year. I think Tai can eventually become comfortable at the point, but Biggs is not a point guard and Parker should only see minutes when the other two are in foul trouble.
  17. Agreed. Biggs does not make good decisions. If he did, then I think he could run the point, but he seems to be too concerned with making the highlight reel play instead of the smart play. Tai wasn't very good tonight, but I trust him with the ball. I can't say the same for Biggs.
  18. Seems most of the complaints about Benny are referring to his lack of offense and being on the floor at the same time with another player (Tai) who is struggling offensively. But to your question, I didn't notice that Benny was the problem when we were having trouble defending the pick and roll or elsewhere.
  19. I'll add that for the first time in a long time, we don't look overmatched from an athletic standpoint when we face good competition. We still need to get better players into the program, but at present, we are trending in the right direction.
  20. Have you ever coached high school or college sports? If not you wouldnt understand the dynamic of a coach knowing who he can and cannot be critical of their play especially to outsiders. I have a feeling Websters psyche is fragile and knows anything he says publicly about him could make him go even further into a shell than he already is, but Biggs he knows can take all criticism in stride and use it as fuel to push harder and earn the minutes and respect. Kamdy, I rarely disagree with you, but you really lost me here. Biggs honestly seems like the most emotionally fragile player I've ever seen in a Husker uniform. He gets down on himself constantly and easily, has chronically dejected body language, and constantly battles self doubt. His Twitter feed supports this. Tai honestly seems like he has a much thicker skin than Biggs does. If anything, I feel that Biggs is the guy who really needs to be coddled. JMO, but I've never viewed Biggs as having a fragile psyche, at least not on the court. I would have to agree with Kamdy on this one. Having said this, none of us really know the answer. I'll defer to Miles since he's the one that is around them everyday.
  21. Miami lost a close game over the weekend at #2 Syracuse as well.
