  1. There's already a blueprint of this exact situation at New Mexico under the same leadership. Steve Alford resigned at Iowa, turned New Mexico into a contender, and parlayed it into one of the highest profile jobs in the country. It's not hard to figure out why Miles would be intrigued by this opportunity.

    Morrow leaving

    Really hope our fans are better than that. We are WELL past the "transfers happen in college basketball all the time!" phase.

    This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    I'm sure it's already been mentioned in here, but adidas has done a MASSIVE brand overhaul the last 2 years. They are on fire right now.

    2018 SG Aguek Arop -> San Diego St

    How many of those players started for major conference teams? Also I feel like you're including Deverell Biggs and Akoy Agau in that list, which is also a JOKE I can't believe people are worked up over this. A) We aren't a charity, players have to develop and continue to earn their scholarship throughout high school and college. In state talent also rarely works out. Mike Gessel is basically the only in state player to make any sort of impact at a major conference school the last 10 years, and that impact was 8ppg on less than 40% shooting. Wow, incredible. C) Miles doesn't need to recruit Omaha to be successful. He needs to get the best players regardless of where they're from. If we start winning, local coaches will forget about this and want their players to play for him.

    2017 PG Saben Lee -> Vanderbilt

    Is there a connection to Nebraska here for Saben? I'm fired up that he came here on an unofficial, just seems really strange. Hoping that there is some sort of family connection to Nebraska or our coaching staff that would give us a leg up

    Andrew White III

    AW3 is one of the most solid players we've had in a long time, I honestly have no idea how anyone could bitch about his game at all.

    Any hope of a big man next year?

    It would be nice but I don't think it's as dire of a need as others. Hammond/Morrow/Jacobson/Horne/McVeigh with some more muscle is a fairly solid front court rotation IMO. Not great, but definitely adequate.

    11:00 central time tip tomorrow for the men

    I think periscope is our best chance

    JoJo the show Anderson -> Northern Arizona

    Anybody know what happened to this kid? He seemed like a top target of ours a few years ago and then he just disappeared. Really glad we got Watson, obviously, just curious about this guy

    Sunday Jerseys

    Great jerseys, I like our standard home jerseys this year too, but I really hope these jerseys aren't a one time thing. Wish they'd make some new black jerseys, love the idea of a black alternate but not the current version.

    #LosHuskers: Live Streaming (Game 3)

    Anyone know who is playing well today? This periscope is pretty grainy unfortunately.

    2016 C Barret Benson -> Northwestern

    Wondering the same thing.

    Will he stay or will he go?

    This will only help us if we want him to stay. I spoke with my source tonight. Pitchford leaving caught everyone by surprise. They fully expected him to remain with the team next season. Nothing new on TP. I do want to dispel any notion that Pitchford had a questionable work ethic. Pitchford worked hard on his game last summer, albeit with less fan fare than TP. I have NO truth to this statement, but did your source mention this maybe being a "mutual" agreement with the staff and Walt P? Just curious if there is more to this story than we know. A "mutual agreement" was not part of the discussion I had earlier tonight. However, based upon the tenor of the conversation, it seems like Pitchford's announcement really caught everyone off guard. As far as Haymarket Husker's assertion about Pitchford's work ethic, I have been told something different. The person I talk to never sugarcoats the info that is shared with me. I have been told some very interesting stuff, some of it very negative. However, I have chosen not to share most of what I am told. I'm not trying to discredit your source and appreciate the information you bring, but unless the staff and players are completely out of touch there's no way Walt's departure would come as a surprise to them. I'm going to leave it at that out of respect for all parties.

    2015 Transfer List

    That would be huge if we got him Do we know if we're in the running for him? I'd be surprised. Not that we won't go after him, but this is the type of transfer that almost every team in the country wants.
  15. I actually liked what I saw out of Hammond in the Iowa game. I know he picked up a few fouls in his limited action, but I thought his defensive positioning was pretty solid and the calls were questionable. If you add 20lbs to his frame, he'll likely get away with more because he'll be able to hold his ground down there. I also think Jacobson will be able to contribute fairly early. He's already a pretty big dude. Morrow isn't necessarily a big, but he could join the team tomorrow and be our best rebounder. Pair those 3 with Walt and possibly Fuller and I think we're looking alright. Our offense should naturally be much improved with the additions of White, McVeigh, and Watson so we really just need solid defense and rebounding from our front court and we'll be fine.

    2015 F Jack McVeigh - Signed

    I don't think Pitchford/Hammond/Morrow/Jacobson/Fuller is a HORRIBLE front court group. Ideal? Not even close, but it's certainly better than what we've seen this year.

    2015 F Jack McVeigh - Signed

    I don't know why people think we don't need help on the wing, we need shooters almost as badly as bigs. If McVeigh is half the shooter people say he is, he will be a great addition next season.
  18. I'm pretty sure all DirecTV customers will receive the game on channel 639. At least I hope so because I'm planning on paying $7 for the sports package to watch.
  19. I don't know how/why some of you keep trying to deny this is a real factor. It's like taking a stance that the surface of the sun isn't hot- You're just backing a factually incorrect position. There is no opinion involved here.
  20. I think a Ffriend/Moore type would be better for our 2014-15 team than a maric type. I'll take Ffriend because I'm not sure if Moore fits in the guidelines.

    Just a question

    Would certainly explain why we suddenly stopped recruiting that big from Oklahoma State.

    2015 PG Glynn Watson - Signed

    Basically, the writer (not Washut) said that he wouldn't be surprised if Watson committed to us this weekend and cancelled his other visits (I believe Creighton is the only one he has lined up so far). Would be huge.

    Tai's summer

    Sooooo... September 2nd, New Zealand vs USA. Tai's gonna be going up against D Rose, Curry, and Irving.

    Transfers

    I think it's safe to say if he's leaving USM, he and Doc probably aren't on the best terms.I also don't think we need a guard. Leave that scholarship open on case a big becomes available at the last minute.

    2015 PG Glynn Watson - Signed

    Glad Watson is visiting Creighton during a Nebraska home game. Hopefully he sees all of the Nebraska flags around Omaha and realizes who the state really supports.
