    I concur on the tone of optimism in Lincoln. Lots to appreciate with the coaching staff for Nebrasketball. And many other sports at NU, in my opinion. The best is yet to come!

    Every year these are rolled out, I’m reminded how much better this conference is top to bottom than any other conference.  
     
    No way we finish below NW this year.  beyond that, I think maybe 6-13 is a toss up and will have some serious attrition.
     
    If Trey gets cleared, Fred is going to have a tremendous opportunity to coach circles around a few people who will roll out comparable talent.  He did it game in and game out last year but just didn’t have the dogs.
     
    I cannot wait to see his system with this squad, and I’m excited for our team defensively—I think Doc will be able to do some classic Doc defensive scheming with the options we have in place.

    Disagree.  Defense has had to improve across the board athletically now that everyone has to guard the perimeter no matter what position they play.  
     
    You have to basically be a demigod to be a great perimeter defender these days because everyone can shoot it (and will with a sliver of an opening).

    For anyone's future reference this is equivalent to throwing on your hazard lights in a tow away zone.
     
    To circle back, right, wrong or indifferent what the guys said was what they said. To me there is more meaning in having to collect, process, and state your own thoughts and opinions than reciting them from someone else. That's sort of the point of an university education.

    If this was directed at what I wrote (not saying it was), I agree that part of the issue is cultural, but that culture was developed in an artificial, state-sponsored environment designed to fail.  There are policies that could greatly help reverse these trends (child brain development, home ownership, generational wealth, prison reform) that could position young people in these environments to get out, create nuclear families, and actually have bootstraps with which they can pull themselves up. 
     
    People of color in the suburbs do not have these inner city cultural problems or crime rates.  It’s a poverty issue, and that poverty was state sponsored and intentional in its creation.  Political examination is, therefore, unavoidable, and is the prerequisite for socio-cultural reform. You cannot have one without the other.

    I'm an academic as the brunt of my living.  There are three things from my research I would propose to empower our Black American families:
     
    1.  Universal Pre-K.  There should be no political argument here.  It is not a child's fault what situation he is born into.  80% of the brain is developed by roughly age 6.  We need compulsory education starting at age 2.  This isn't my opinion.  The literature is conclusive.  The age 5 compulsory start for children is completely arbitrary.  
     
    2.  A 60-year housing discount for Black families to reverse the FDR (and beyond) redlining over a 60 year period in the 20th century.   Here's a fairly entertaining video of how the American hood was invented.  While I do think there are massive cultural problems in places like inner city Chicago, it is important to note that the slums of our country are artificial in nature.  When artificial things are created and there is a constant critical mass, unnatural chaotic things tend to happen.  This was a state-sponsored and state-designed implementation, and it is up to the state to do what they can to reverse it.
     
     
    3.  Legalize marijuana.  Our prison system is completely insane and loaded with non-violent criminals.  Increase freedom and get the government out of the personal choices of adults.  This would also greatly hurt Mexican cartels and decrease illegal immigration.  We tried prohibition once.  It's a colossal waste of time and tax dollars.
     
    I'm happy to entertain cordial discussions on the topics I've listed above from any viewpoint anyone wants to put forward.  I've always been impressed with the civility and intellect of this board.  Intellectual diversity is a good thing.  Communication is a good thing.  I don't find it particularly profound to point out that oppression exists.  That's kind of an undergraduate thing, but it's a good place to start for critical thinking.  I'm more interested in solutions, and I don't think anyone on the known political spectrum is attempting to do this right now.  
     
    Otherwise, I'm happy to leave this here as a (hopefully perceived) relevant contribution to the original post.

    It would be proven descendants of Black Americans who lived between the 1920s and 1970s.  That’s who would get the discount, yes.  The generational wealth accrued for non-Black Americans during that period was fundamentally devastating, and I believe the government owes for their state-sponsored systemic racism.  
     
    As for UBI, I get the argument.  I’m not sold, but certainly Yang is on to something with regard to inevitable automation.  It’s the psychological research that I’m not certain supports his hypothesis as to what people would do with the money.

    I agree with everything here, and I would add, we should also find a way to massively increase spending on inner-city schools, primary and secondary.
     
    As to your third point, it seems to me like we're getting to the tipping point of getting marijuana legalized nationwide.  We're approaching 50% of states that have either fully legalized it (11 states + DC) or allow medicinal use + decriminalization (12 states).

    LK1 reacted to Huskerpapa in 2021 SG Hunter Sallis 5 star   
    Here is my two cents and yes, it is partly due to his decision not to come here.  
     
    I am impressed with his game, but I am a bit amazed that he is a five star.  He doesn't have all the tools, but yes, with time, commitment and great coaching he may be the greatest player to come out of Omaha.  
     
    That said, he still takes a number of plays off.  Others (many) do that as well.  But when I've watched him that was a take away.  I also waited for him to take games over, and that didn't happen when I watched.  Perhaps that is due in part to the talent around him.  I guess I was more upset with Chuckie taking his show to  Wisconsin then Sallis going elsewhere.  
     
    That all said...i would have taken this kid in a nano second.

    Langford is a fair comparison, at least for Sallis' floor.  I think Sallis is less selfish on the court though, and can thrive whether he's asked to be a volume scorer or complimentary piece.  Also think Sallis seems like a very smart kid, and I personally put a lot of stock in that.  Not saying Romeo isn't smart (no clue one way or the other), but Sallis really seems to have a good head on his shoulders which, IMO, means he's likely to produce well above his floor.
     
    Regarding your other post about Tominga, totally agree.  That dude is a total steal for us.

    Hoiberg is the steal of the next decade in all of college basketball.  I firmly believe this.  There is no way I'm an AD and turn him down in that situation.  There weren't any other candidates better than Miles (I thought Miles did a great job) to come here except for that miracle.  Fred is a dude.  It's only a matter of time with him at the helm.
