    CBS Sports has 4 BIG teams in the top 11, 7 in the top 25. 🥺

    A lot of that depends who else is on the court.  If Banton needs to be a primary scorer, I think we'll have issues. To me I'd think of him on this team as sort of the Haanif Cheatham where he's getting you easy buckets (with his length and movement as opposed to blazing speed) and someone who is probably a plus on defense.  
     
    I keep looking at this team and it really feels like the most important question is whether or not we can depend on Teddy Allen to average 20+ a game.  If you have this you can structure the rest of the team around this.

    Seems like it would be a natural fit for him to go to Minneapolis:
     
     
    I really want this to happen.

    Chuck Taylor reacted to jayschool in Big Ten Conference-Only Season   
    From the 1919 University of Nebraska yearbook about the 1918 football season, which opened in the middle of a World War, and which was suspended from Oct. 5's opener against Iowa until a Nov. 9 game against the Omaha Balloon School:
     
    Were alibis necessary, Nebraska could claim, along with every other school in the Conference, that the unprecedented influenza epidemic made serious inroads on their team's progress. The plague caused an element of uncertainty in every game. Not alone in the personnel of the team, where changes were constantly being made necessary through the claim of the "flu" but also in the student body and in the other devotees of the game, was there an element of unrest and lack of interest. It was never surely known even on the eve of a game whether the teams would clash the following day or not, for bans on public gatherings were being enforced and lifted at all hours of the day and night.
     
    (snip)
     
    Just prior to the lifting of the freshman ban, the Government took over the control of the Valley sports, and so cut the Nebraska schedule, in order to eliminate the trips and curtail expense, that is was hardly recognizable after it was returned to us. The Syracuse game and the one scheduled with Morgantown, West Virginia, were both barred, and so the team had only one trip to look forward to through the entire season. The trip allowed was made to St. Louis, where Nebraska mixed with Dick Rutherford's Washington Pikers, December 7, 1918.

    Saw one of the local Lincoln TV stations reached out to Williams after OSU got hammered by the NCAA yesterday.
     
    He said they offered to let him out of his scholarship. I got the impression he planned to stick with OSU, but I don't believe he definitively said one way or the other. They don't report for workouts for another 3-5 weeks, so he has some time to look around. 
     
    Just what his recruiting needs is another few crazy twists.

    Could be.  I would be the one that even though the receding hairline was starting I was still trying to grow out my hair like John Taylor of Duran Duran.  It didn't work.

    Chuck Taylor got a reaction from Cazzie22 in OT: Over and Over   
    My favorite is The Year of Living Dangerously, with Mel Gibson as an Australian journalist in Indonesia. Directed by Aussie Peter Weir, who also directed Picnic at Hanging Rock and Gallipoli. Sigourney Weaver, while not Australian, also makes it worth watching.

    Chuck Taylor reacted to hskr4life in Roster Attrition   
    Not the biggest of losses.  Kind of a gunner, but was 0 for his career here and really just played in mop up duty.  Really telling that he didn't even get into a game until the last game of the year.  Good athlete, but his game just didn't translate to the D1 level for the little time that he was on the floor.  He should be a good pick up for someone, but he just wasn't going to get it done on the court here.  HA!

    Aim for a .500 overall record. Anything above that is gravy to me. I'm personally viewing this as Year 1.

    Not that much to show for basketball here, but he got a degree from NU. Good deal for him.
