    Dedoch is N

    I agree completely. The main problem will be if he can stay out of foul trouble guarding a bigger traditional post player.

    The pickup of Dedoch is looking better and better. T-Rank sees him averaging 6.8 ppg and 5.3 rpg, good enough to boost us in Bart Torvik's rankings to 7th, passing Purdue and Ohio State. http://www.barttorvik.com/?conlimit=B10&year=2019&sort=

    Successful Season

    T-Rank now has dropped us to 43rd and 9th in the BIG, with a 41% chance of making the tourney. While the prediction might not be worth much, Torvik's added some detail to his preview. http://www.barttorvik.com/ 8 Michigan St. Bid %: 98.3 B10 0-0 118.8 11 93.8 11 .9182 19-8 14-6 58.4% 59.0% 31 % 20 Michigan Bid %: 91.6 B10 0-0 114.7 29 94.3 15 .8811 19-10 12-8 51.9% 51.9% 17 % 22 Wisconsin Bid %: 76.3 B10 0-0 115.5 23 95.6 32 .8741 15-11 12-8 93.9% 95.4% 33 % 23 Indiana Bid %: 73.7 B10 0-0 117.7 13 97.4 58 .8741 15-11 12-8 59.4% 56.7% 32 % 32 Iowa Bid %: 55.3 B10 0-0 118.3 12 100.4 110 .8435 15-11 10-10 90.5% 93.0% 14 % 38 Maryland Bid %: 64 B10 0-0 113.7 35 97.2 52 .8330 19-12 10-10 50.9% 55.0% 13 % 39 Ohio St. Bid %: 69.5 B10 0-0 112.0 48 95.9 34 .8307 19-12 10-10 48.9% 46.9% 15 % 42 Purdue Bid %: 44.9 B10 0-0 110.7 65 95.0 26 .8261 16-13 10-10 42.7% 42.2% 21 % 43 Nebraska Bid %: 41 B10 0-0 113.2 38 97.3 56 .8257 16-13 10-10 64.4% 70.9% 18 % 48 Northwestern Bid %: 40.7 B10 0-0 113.1 41 97.9 67 .8143 15-12 9-11 56.5% 47.5% 9 % 49 Illinois Bid %: 28.2 B10 0-0 115.0 26 99.7 100 .8131 16-13 9-11 41.3% 43.2% 20 % 52 Penn St. Bid %: 38.9 B10 0-0 109.3 74 95.6 31 .7975 16-14 9-11 55.9% 53.4% 19 % 79 Minnesota Bid %: 3.2 B10 0-0 110.2 67 100.1 107 .7293 10-15 7-13 59.6% 60.6% 19 % 95 Rutgers Bid %: 0.8 B10 0-0 103.9 149 96.6 43 .6775 14-17 6-14 54.3% 44.8% 16 %

    Bart Torvik updated his projections to take out Jordy. IIRC, we were about 28th (6th) before. He must not have seen Jordy play. Kinda cool: he sees Brady contributing 3.6 ppg and 3.0 rbp. I'd take that. http://www.barttorvik.com/?conlimit=B10&year=2019&sort= 8 Michigan St. B10 0-0 119.1 9 93.7 11 .9212 17-8 14-6 58.4% 59.0% 42 % 20 Michigan B10 0-0 114.6 29 94.3 15 .8807 18-10 12-8 51.9% 51.9% 19 % 22 Indiana B10 0-0 117.7 13 97.4 58 .8743 14-11 11-9 59.4% 56.7% 38 % 23 Wisconsin B10 0-0 115.3 25 95.4 30 .8737 14-10 12-8 93.9% 95.4% 42 % 31 Iowa B10 0-0 118.3 12 100.3 110 .8449 15-11 10-10 90.5% 93.0% 14 % 33 Ohio St. B10 0-0 112.7 43 95.8 33 .8411 19-12 10-10 48.9% 46.9% 15 % 35 Maryland B10 0-0 114.0 32 97.1 51 .8383 16-11 10-10 50.9% 55.0% 17 % 38 Nebraska B10 0-0 113.9 33 97.3 56 .8339 13-12 10-10 64.4% 70.9% 26 % 42 Purdue B10 0-0 110.7 64 94.9 24 .8294 16-13 10-10 42.7% 42.2% 21 % 47 Illinois B10 0-0 115.2 27 99.6 100 .8170 15-13 9-11 41.3% 43.2% 17 % 50 Northwestern B10 0-0 113.0 40 97.9 68 .8130 14-12 9-11 56.5% 47.5% 11 % 53 Penn St. B10 0-0 109.3 74 95.5 32 .7989 16-14 9-11 55.9% 53.4% 19 % 75 Minnesota B10 0-0 110.3 67 100.0 107 .7306 9-15 7-13 59.6% 60.6% 20 % 95 Rutgers B10 0-0 104.1 146 96.6 44 .6820 9-17 6-14 54.3% 44.8% 21 %

    TA is a good bet for a breakout season. He got his feet wet last year and is going to play a LOT this year.

    Jordy Gone

    So what's that mean? We ran him off because he put on weight?

    Jordy Gone

    I had thought it unlikely he'd return based on last season's incident. So the timing is strange, but maybe not if he's been rehabbing on NU's dime and is now ready to leave. If he turns up somewhere else in the next few days, then it seems like maybe this is how it was going to play out all along. I'd guess word will filter to the media about how everything went down, but it's hard to believe we knew he was going all along. Don't care either way, time to move on.

    Duh, forgot about that. I'll go back to the grassy knoll.

    Has Jordy been at the workouts? I went back through the workout videos on twitter and didn't see him, although I didn't give them grassy knoll-type scrutiny.

    Roby (is Good)

    Maybe the 2 biggest challenges this year (1) developing depth at wings (2) maximizing efficiency on offense by figuring out who gets shots. As Dean said above, it's not as simple as saying Watson should shoot less and Roby more, since a lot of shot selection is taking what the defense gives you. Teams let Glynn take 3s because he doesn't hit them and they can play back to cut off his drives. If everyone else is locked down, Glynn often has to take the shot. Also, is Roby our best player based on NBA potential? Maybe, but does he become the priority over a potential BIG first teamer in Palmer? And Cope was our most efficient player on offense, does he have less priority than Roby? I don't have the answer to any of that, and neither does the coaching staff at this point. They'll figure it out this fall and in early games. Actually, defense is always the biggest challenge, but who wants to talk about that?

    Huskers in the Pros Thread

    Tra'deon Hollins of UNO had some good minutes for the Pacers. Looks like they've told him not to shoot, but he still makes a lot of plays while he's out there.

    Successful Season

    Lantz played for the Lakers, Simmons in the ABA and Branch and Campbell for the Globetrotters (laugh it you want, but in those days it meant something because there were so few opportunities to get paid to play). Tom Baack was the only one of the starters who didn't play professionally, and he was damn good. That's all from memory, so take it as fact until somebody Googles it and proves me wrong.

    I'm impressed that he got 20 minutes. Shooting will come.

    the Decision Mark III

    NBA free agency is a strange, strange thing. The Lakers let Julius Randle go, pick up Rondo for $9 million. NO signs Randle and lets Cousins go. The big money went quickly and Cousins is left looking for a team, ends up with the champs. A former All-Star, he gets a one-year deal for $5 million, while Randle gets $18 million for 2 years. No comparison between the two players. It all makes sense its own way, but it's a complete head scratcher if you don't know all the ins and outs of contracts, salary caps, etc. The Lakers' team chemistry should be interesting with Rondo and Lonzo Ball competing for time, and LBJ and Lavar chiming in with their opinions. Luke Walton may need some of his dad's hallucinogens.
