  1. Cross is right up there with the nicest stroke on the team. I think we want him shooting when he's open.
  2. nubest79, given the above reply from Neebrasketball...I sent you a PM.
  3. So, I don’t get to follow things too close like I used to ( don’t always know the other teams players well etc). Was at the home game vs Purdue this year. Happened to focus on the Purdue guys in warmups for @ few minutes. Noticed a guy ( who was Ryan Cline ) who had a terrible shot and he was clanking them in the few minutes I was watching him. I pointed him out to my boys “ Look at that guys shot, he’s terrible. He’s gotta be some walk on”. I found out that he’s pretty effective ?
  4. Unless I’m missing something this is all pretty black and white for me, either our coaching staff believes and enforces that we don’t do that crap at Nebraska or we don’t. And if we don’t, we have no moral high ground to stand on.
  5. The Downing alley oops were things of beauty !! By by the way, you’re combining Terry Smith and Lenard Johnson ?
  6. Badgett dunk you’re likely thinking of was in 93 ( maybe 1992 ). KU at home. Kevin Pritchard drives the lane late down by 2. Derrick Chandler blocks the shot and TB grades the loose ball and goes down for the jam to seal the game.
  7. 6 dunks in 1 game his Sr year in non-conference....IIRC.
  8. I know this wasn’t the main point of your post.....but this so struck memories for me. I totally remember that happening—ugh.
  9. KD’s a coward in my humble opinion.
  10. Really sharp guy. Very thoughtful and thorough in an interview. I’m sure many thought bland too and I suppose true. Had a pretty good sense of humor at times. I think he had some Osborne-ish qualities. Old school and respectable guy. Didn’t like the limelight (see Lee B’s articles after he left). I remember well his second? year scaring the crap out of #1? Kansas. I’m still smarting from that game. Also remember the year we drilled KU at home only to follow it up with a tough loss at home verse KSU and Barry slamming his water bottle down late in the game in disappointment. Too bad the recruiting didn’t pick up in time.
  11. Wow, this so great. Second season in a row when it seems like everything going south against Miles after the seasons end (and those followed the Andrew White betrayal summer). And just like last year, things start happening positively. So happy for him. Rooting for him big time.
  12. Their athletism surprises...kind of Chris Farley-ish.
  13. If everything else is solid ( and NOTHING is ) and Kenya leaves, I doubt he wants out. But, NOTHING is and he’s hitting the panic button big time. I can’t really blame him. I wish he’d man up and accept challenge however. After all, there are no guarantees anywhere and transferring is always possible ( “everybody’s doing it”). Again though, he’s thinking “what the heck is going on there?” Hopefully the dust settles and he re-commits.
  14. Agree agree agree! For several reasons....(1) it would make it even more exciting. (2) It would give darn good teams who are unknowns a chance ( and by the way, they would win all over the place). The focus should not be in getting a ton more major conf teams in, some certainty. (3) It gets rid of the stupid insignificant tournaments and therefore makes it a big deal for ALL of the NCAA teams. There is getting to be less and less of a difference between the teams in the 30-120 ith best teams in the country all the time. Might as well acknowledge that, embrace it and use it. Again I think it would be really cool and a huge success. I really think the excitement would off the charts if done right.
  15. It’s certainly fun to be Husker hoops fan huh? It’s very tempting to believe that fate working out in a multude of weird and curious circumstances or bad luck or a curse...have got this program in a stranglehold that keeps up from getting over the hump. For us to have roster turnover after this year ( oh I know it’s now normal)...just take us (the fans) out to the wood shed and expose our bellies so we can voluntarily take on the next punch to the gut. It’s tempting to give up (very), but of course we won’t.
  16. Too much common sense there. There is always lots wrong. Thanks for posting that.
  17. Larry Mollenbrink (sp?) did Husker hoops on KFOR early in Danny’s tenure.
  18. I don’t know jack squat, but I believe that dear old NU really tries to run a clean program and do things right. I’m sure “things” still go on as you can’t stop everything. All that to say, I sure hope we come out clean in this big deal we’re discussing in this thread.
  19. Jack Mitchell ( klin ) said this morning that the original No Sit Sunday genesised when Chris Harriman was on his morning show one day leading up to the game and mentioned something. It wasn’t clear if it was a specific idea or he said something almost in passing. According to Jack this morning, the idea got legs from there and turned into what it was. Anyone remember it that way ?
  20. Interesting, (I don’t know anything about the pre-Jack Moore dudes), but the one who caught my eye was Tony Farmer. Played on a stacked, best record of all time team and was a power forward...and he’s on this list. He was a smart, crafty dude. Really wish he could have played his Sr year (no da). OK back to the current team subjects....
  21. Moody’s running 3 at the end of regulation tied it at 100 iirc. Several players fouled out from both teams. Beat KU on day 2 and lost to Doug Smith and Mizzou in championship game. How about beating ( top 5 ?) Michigan State (same year 90-91) early in the season on Beau Reid’s last second shot at home. Danny’s progress was validated and it was a crazy fun year. That year for me was probably the best. I had been a rabid Husker hoops fan since the early 80’s. It was just this feeling of “we’ve arrived”.
