    REDZONEDAN reacted to throwback in B1G Media Days   
    Coach Hoiberg:
    Excited about our group this year - first time bringing back some players who had a key role They're providing great leadership to our newcomers with 4 freshmen & 4 transfers Continuity is very important - took over a big rebuilding project, which has created some difficult moments Proud of how our guys fought through last season's struggles - 10 players & 4 coaches had covid last year 14 games in 29 days - our guys that found a way to fight through that adversity are really helping mentor this season Impressed with maturity of newcomers - like the uniqueness and skill set of the roster Very competitive team, gives great effort daily Love coming back to Indy - fun to see all of the Pacers greats' names that I know hanging in the rafters - awesome years in Indy for me May see transfer numbers increase with no sit-out rule Transfers are key for increasing the roster talent quickly What we have now is a good mix of older and younger transfer players Verge, getting him late was big for backcourt depth &  to add ball handling Edwards, Wilcher & Keisei all can spread the floor Shooting is huge, opens up driving lanes - 82% of our shots last year came in restricted area & behind 3 pt line, which is ideal - we're better equipped to finish those shots this year Difficult to figure out a rotation, who starts and who finishes games Must stress to team that role acceptance is big - go out and do your role - still have 3 weeks to figure it out I played every role imaginable - understand how big it is to go out and accept your role Creates highly competitive practices as guys fight for valuable minutes Probably have 12 guys right now who could take key minutes - probably start the year narrowing that to 9 or 10 guys playing key minutes May not be same guys in those roles to start the season as will be at the end of the season Nice to have an event like this to gain some normalcy for our lives  We are 100% fully vaccinated, but we are being cautious with testing & keeping an eye on it - no positive tests so far this season Excited about having fans back in PBA - our fans give us a huge home court advantage - appreciate our fans' patience as we build this

    Instead of counting sheep last night to fall asleep, I was counting Keisei 3’s.  Man can that kid shoot.  He already appears to be a fan favorite.

    You focus on his downfalls but don’t give any light to the money he gives to his community where he turned an abandoned school into a community center to help keep kids off the street and get jobs for adults and the amount of money he donates to charity to help people that suffer from PTSD and mental health. Plus the amount of stuff he donated to prisons during the pandemic to help all workers for cleaning supplies and masks etc.

    But….but I thought Hoiberg wasn’t going to recruit high school kids.
     
    I’m excited about this commitment. Keeping my fingers crossed Traudt is next.

    He was off my radar, but im so hype on this kid, it looks like Fred attracted an NBA talent gem in this guy.
    When we get a recruit or are high on someone, I like to find video of them, like we all do. 
    Here's a video I just found with a deep dive on his family and story, and his dad, a former pro overseas. Really made me fall for the kid. Love it.

    REDZONEDAN reacted to cipsucks in I need to give ya'll an explanation (update)   
    I just wanted to thank all the posters that have been here for years.  You have made this a fabulous website.  Way to go, guys!  My lack of posting here over the last 18 months has nothing to do about anything political.  I have given up following sports.  There are more important things in life.  Many here have supported my son Seth's battle with MDS with money and prayers over the last several years.  Here's an update: Seth and Mrs. cip have been at Mayo since May 15.  Seth had his blood marrow transplant last Thursday.  So far, so good.  If everything proceeds well, they will be back home the middle of September.  It's been a long ass journey, and I thank everyone here for helping.  The hardest part for me being alone is trying to cook for one.  So, if anyone wants to come to Stromsburg for a steak or a burger, let me know.  It's on me.  GBR!

    5) Fans need to bring it like we did in Year 1 of the PBA.  Create that home court advantage where we don’t lose at home.
     
    We would have gone undefeated in Year 1 if Michigan doesn’t hit that half court shot at the end of the first half.

    Come on @Norm Peterson, everybody knows that a top-25 5* kid is clearly a fraud if he commits to play hoops at stupid Nebraska.
     
    One needs to be a 6-7 Trevor Lakes clone from NWMSU to really get the blood pumping!  HUGE ADDITION!!!  #LetItFly

    REDZONEDAN got a reaction from ConkintheCorner in 2021 PG TyTy Washington -> Kentucky   
    All of the Creighton fans I know think that he did no wrong and everything was overblown.  

    Do I personally think he is a racist?  No I don’t.  Do I think he was an idiot for what he said?  Yes I do.
     
    Do I think he should have been fired? Probably not at that time.  Do I think he should have received a longer suspension to make a point in today’s world?  Probably.
     
    Am I enjoying the fallout from his idiotic comment?  Most definitely!

    REDZONEDAN reacted to 75unlgrad in Emotional high   
    I am still on an emotional high as I consider all the new talent that is joining our team this year. I am 69 years old and have followed Husker basketball for most of my life. I enjoyed the Danny Nee years and didn't realize that it would be 40 years before we had the talent to challenge for a conference title. All I had was 'hope' that somehow, someway things would change. 'Thank You' Lincoln for building the Pinnacle and 'thank you' Moos for hiring Hoiberg and Matt. I think this incoming group of players can become the 'core' or 'nucleus' of a team capable of finishing in the top 1/3 of the conference. We need to add another recruiting class of 3-5 players similar in quality to this year's class of recruits and transfers (I like the list of visitors coming in June). Anyway, the only point I am trying to make is that for a long-time fan, I think 'hope' has finally arrived. ON PAPER, we have real reasons to be optimistic about our future. Add another quality recruiting class to this one and 'hope' might become 'reality.' I'm pumped up and haven't felt this good in a long time.

    I thought Creighton players were already considered pros.  Maybe his last check didn’t clear.
