    Busch Light reacted to hhcmatt in Fast forward a year   
    Considering that he turned himself from nobody into a power 5 talent and spent the year getting his butt kicked by bigger guys while asking for more I feel like motivation is no problem.

    If Cross works hard on development (weights, shot, defense, confidence, etc.), he will be taking minutes from people, not the other way around. Cross has a high ceiling. Is the work ethic there?

    You can declare for the draft, not get selected, and go back, right?
    Cam is having the sort of year where he certainly will put his feet in those waters.
    He's obviously talented and a future pro at some level but there are a lot of talented PGs out there and a decent number of them are more physically gifted and/or consistent. No doubt he's going to be a guy who works out for scouts who tell him he needs to go back to school and do X and Y better. I guess we'll see if he can respond any better than he does on  the court when things aren't going his way. I very well might have no idea what I"m talking about but that's going to be where he finds himself this June after his name isn't called.

    The recent Omaha World Herald story on Cam Mack would suggest that he has an excellent opportunity to get drafted sooner rather than later.
    If that happens, we should all cheer, because that will confirm Hoiberg's continuing ability to get players to the next level--which will boost future recruiting efforts.

    BTN would like to thank you all for watching this special two hour episode of the Steve Pikiel  Show... Starring Steve Pikiel and featuring Pikiel in Picture technology.

    I was really impressed today. It’s the holidays and the team was coming off a bad loss and shots were not falling. A lot of reasons to get down but they ramped up the defense. I realize the opponent was bad, but this was the third most impressive game of the season for this team all things considered. 
     
    It was nice to see Green bounce back. He really showed some intensity on both ends of the floor. I was a little worried when watching him against North Dakota, I wasn’t sure where his head was at. Adversity is going to hit every student athlete in college, you can choose to let it take you down or you can fight. It appears Jervay has chosen to fight. Good job by Hoiberg and Jervay. Basketball aside, that’s a good life lesson. Some kids would have shut down. 
     
    I think Mack, Burke, and Jervay are a heck of a backcourt next year. This year will be tough, but their development will be something to watch. Yvan will struggle in Big 10 play, it will be interesting to see him adjust. I think Cross is the most important post to develop for next year though. That kid could be the matchup nightmare that we have been waiting for. It’s going to take a lot of work to get him there though, I hope he has it in him.

    Agree, but I wish his effort was better.. At times he seems to be just going thru the motions on the defensive end.

    I'd say the best comparison to a recent former Husker is to Roby's classmate, Jeriah Horne. That's who Cross most resembles.

    FYI did some research on Flohoops and they have an awful reputation. Hard to cancel, terrible stream quality. Looks like I’ll be settling in with @Kent Pavelka and @Busch Light (the beer, not the poster) the next couple days.

    Busch Light reacted to Norm Peterson in 2019 Transfer Shamiel Stevenson - LOI   
    Experienced a coaching change at Pitt, didn't mesh with Capel apparently. Then transferred to Nevada and walked into another coaching change.
     
    Fact our coach has a 7-year deal with big penalty if he leaves while Shamiel is still in college might be a big inducement.
     
    Good numbers as a freshman at Pitt. 6-6 and 235# might fit Hoiberg's vision of a stretch 4.

    None ever won an NCAA Tourney game.
    All played in the NBA.
    All think Kearney Man is a tool.

    Doc needs to make sure he's taken the English language test before Admissions rejects his application.
