  1. If Stevenson is eligible, that's almost certainly the starting 5 I'd predict. Maybe we'll see them in Italy and Cross and/or Yvan are way better than I expect, but I find it unlikely they're gonna be ready to handle a D1/B1G front court from day one. I think we're gonna go "super small" quite a bit. I think, if both stick around, Cross and Yvan are gonna be a nightmare for B1G opponents for years to come, though, just not likely this November. We'll see about February and March. So, to get it down and official, my starting five is: Mack Green Burke Cheatham Stevenson (assuming eligible) If he's not, IDK, who would jump in. If he is, I'd be more than mildy surprised if it's different than this when we play our first game in November. Maybe Curtis is way better than I realize and he starts from his first on campus. Who really knows?
  2. I have no idea if that's a fair comp or not, but I loved watching TJ Ford in college. I'd be thrilled if that's close to what we get.
  3. I could very easily see all 4 starting. I'd almost go as far as to say its likely. I'm very comfortable saying Mack, Burke and Green will be starters when the season opens. I think it's pretty wide open from there.
  4. I guess I have a hard time putting either Cross or Yvan in the starting 5 from day one. Maybe they're develop into that by years end, but I don't really see it in November.
  5. I mean, he hasn't been drafted just yet...
  6. Only if he sees the floor...which I don't think will be much...
  7. Last two have been on Saturdays. The two before that were on Wednesdays. Five of the six before that were on Sundays. I think when the football team was good they tried to schedule it the day after the conference title games.
  8. Would have liked to see him at UNO, but this is a good spot for him.
  9. Fred's great grandfather was an immigrant who settled in a small town on Hwy 11 in central Nebraska. Scott's parents settled in a small town half an hour down that same Hwy 11. If you stay on Hwy 11 for a while until you get to Hwy 3 and turn left, take that until you get to Hwy 34 and turn right, you'll get to a bigger town called Hastings. That's where Tom's from. It's about 30-40 mins away from Wood River.
  10. Is Pitt or Notre Dame the team that has to sit out? Looking at the ACC teams that hosted last year and finished in a similar range as NU last year, Wake, Pitt, ND, Clemson, BC or Miami would be likely bets. It'd be nice to see ND or Pitt since we haven't seen them yet in the event. Hopefully as Hoiberg builds the program we'll see higher profile matchups.
  11. There were media folks that I heard openly speculate NU would have competed for the B1G title if Burke had been available this season. He might be the best scorer on the roster. He's not gonna come off the bench. And if Curtis is as good as it appears he is, he might be the first one off the bench. I don't think he'll be fighting for the scrub minutes. If I had to put my starting five out there (I'm gonna assume no Roby and Stevenson gets the waiver), I'd go with this: Mack Burke Greene Cheatham Stevenson I could see some real growing pains for Cross and Yvan. Stevenson is a pretty important player for this team. Kavas is first off the bench. Curtis is right behind. Cross and Yvan next depending on how quickly the game slows down for them.
  12. Couple things reading through this: I'd almost guarantee Cam, Burke and Green start. Anything beyond that is up in the air. I'd also be interested in seeing a comp between Samari Curtis and Xavier Johnson.
  13. He won't have less than 2.5 years of eligibility. It'll either be that or 3. It won't be reduced down to two.
  14. I'm 8 months past my 37th birthday and and definitely still growing.
  15. Oh, dang. I thought he was bigger than that. Yeah, not sure the comp is there at all. From a build perspective, the Bradford comp is much more apt. But I don't think their games are that similar looking at the numbers. That said, the game has changed a lot since Bradford was here.
