  1. Dalano Banton and his unique combination of length and court vision in combination with his showing at the G-League combine was enough for the Toronto Raptors to pull the trigger at Pick #46. The Toronto native becomes the first Canadian picked by the Raptors and the 2nd Husker drafted since 2019 (Isaiah Roby)

  3. Don't worry, Banton gave 0 flux about this thread.
  4. If he's going to Rutgers I'll pencil him into our 2024-25 roster
  5. This is in regards to Brian Rosenthal being arrested. It was discussed in the SEC thread. Gut wrenching to see someone who has been in our lives a long time devolve like this.
  6. Went to Detroit. Next-Gen goon potential.
  7. Palmer is a 6'5" scoring guard with decent athleticism, so-so outside shooting, and fairly elite scoring mentality/ability. That goes a long way in a 351 person NCAA where the guys get flipped every 4 years. So many less slots in the NBA. Boiled down to other SGs being available with his level of scoring ability who either were more skilled shooters or more athletic. Palmer at some point still could become an NBA player but he's never going to be much more athletic. Dalano Banton may or may evolve into an NBA player but his combination of court vision and height/length is elite a
  8. Home town team for Banton. Great to hear.
  9. Can Andre have yours? He needs the calories.
  10. Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas and Texas A&M have to be in their own quadrant called the Four Twelves
  11. Making shots is the number one focus but can our primary ballhandlers operating without turning the ball over a ton? Last year was brutal for both.
  12. The other part is that we don't tend to offer guys we haven't seen play. I assume that we were in Indy and saw him this weekend. You might be on something with waiting to offer him in person.
  13. I care. I watch every Olympics and root for us to win every gold medal. We just won our first ever women's taekwondo gold! We're going to watch nothing but swimming and gymnastics in this house for the next week. This NBA squad certainly isn't the most talented we've ever sent and some of it has to do with all the wear and tear of cramming in two NBA season plus us winning enough since Athens where it's not a pressing matter. If you win, you're supposed to and if you don't it's embarrassing. Couple that with how much better the rest of the world gets at basketball every year and we're
  14. l Poland would have to lose their last game, Japan would have to beat China. Then you'd have three 2 win teams, each of those teams having beat each other. Tiebreaker is point diff. Japan would need to beat China by 3 or more. If they win by 2 I think it's a coin flip. If they only win by 1, they'd be out.
  15. Found this one when looking for a place to post Ed's transfer tweet.
  16. I still think this matters. I think the conference's response to covid relative to the other Power 5 schools lays out the balance of athletics vs academics in the B1G.
  17. Seems pretty improbable that academically Kentucky is a fit. Louisville certainly is not. If your university isn't listed here, I doubt the Big 10 is going to come calling If schools were libations, this would be like ordering a Dom Perignon and Diet Coke. One doesn't mix and the other one is crap in a mixed drink compared to Coke.
  18. It's conceivable it would help us in football recruiting and the conference in revenue if we could grab a Texas school but boy that would be the B1G selling out on their unwritten rule that schools should be in the AAU. Kansas and Iowa St are the logical choices; Is Kansas willing/able to leave Kansas St? Jim Delaney probably has Georgia Tech halfway in the boat already; after seeing how Kevin Warren ran things last year it's doubtful the conference does anything. If I'm the Big 12 right now I'm eyeballing Houston and then making SMU and Tulsa fight it out to get you back to 10. H
  19. Freshman year Joe Wieskamp would be pretty spectacular from a shooting standpoint
