    The days of the 15 footer are gone.  Analytics say it's a bad shot.  As bizarre as it may seem, posts that can shoot threes at at a borderline respectable rate are more valued than posts that can hit 15 footers at a good rate.


    Analytics miss the fact that it forces defenses to defend the whole court and makes offenses more effective in the paint and outside the line.

    Don’t you guys love watching our players light it up when they are not wearing their Husker uniforms?

    One thing to remember is, when you're in a Husker uniform and playing in the Big Ten, this is not a foul:

    That is correct.  This one is in KC at T-Mobile center.  I have my hotel room booked already but that is same night that NU volleyball could play for National Championship in Omaha as well and already have tickets for that also.  So not sure which I'm going to yet.


    The Kansas State game might be our best shot to get to 6 wins for the season and bowl eligibility...oh wait, wrong sport.

    If you ever went to the Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago (Chee-burger, Chee-burger) they had Schlitz DARK on Tap & it was actually one of the best beers I’ve ever had.


    I made sure I ordered a Coke so I could hear "No Coke! Pepsi!".

    $0.10 in 1900, adjusted for inflation, is $3.04 in 2019. That's a CAGR of 2.91% per year.


    Or, $7.28 by 2024.  At least at the beginning of the year. Probably more like $9.47 by that November.

    Sorry have not played basketball since High School in the 80's.  Biking, Hiking, and Roller skating is about all this 52 year old can handle...although I'm considering some inline skates. 

    That’s impressive - at 52 I’ve found challenging activities to be navigating a flight of stairs or lifting my arm above my head.


    the weird thing about getting older, for me,is that recovery time from a sprained ankle was about two months at age 16, and is now about two minutes. I can now turn either one completely and even if I fall to the ground, I can just walk it off. It must have something to do with the previous several hundred sprains.

    I agree with @aphilso1's assessment, especially on the athleticism.


    However -- and people are going to hate me for saying this but I'll say it anyway -- the guy whose game his game reminds me of?




    No, for real.


    I don't see a strong enough resemblance that I would make a comparison...
