  1. At first glance, definitely more upside than Kevin Cross in what you would want your 5 to do (nothing against Kevin).
  2. Let me the first to call him by his new nickname “Andre The Giant”
  3. Glad to hear the Fred is okay. Now everyone can take a deep breath and get some sleep (and wash your hands and don’t sleep with your hands around your face!)
  4. Can you imagine an explosive backcourt with Mack and Green? Imagine how many dishes Roby would get from a slasher to the hoop like Mack too! I hope these players have an idea of the fan support they will have here! After playing in sparsely attended gyms throughout their JUCO year, THE VAULT will knock their socks off.
  5. Turned on the Celtics & Cavs game 7 in the 4th quarter - had to turn it off with 3 minutes left it was so unwatchable. Far cry from the NBA I remember. I won't even watch the finals. Not my game. I'll stick to college basketball.
  6. I don’t think they were faking that. He ingrained himself over the offseason with his teammates through his hard work.[emoji106]
  7. I am really excited about this season. After seeing how everything settled after the transfers, I think things have worked out as well as we could have hoped for in terms of roster management
  8. After hearing his interview on Sports Nightly, I have to say I'm impressed with him. Good hire. Professionally, it is a P5 school giving him a nice bump in pay but also a chance to mold some very talented young players (Especially Watson). I like his experience running the offense for Butler the last 2 years too...
  9. I like this hire. This is similar to what happened with Kevin McKenna when he was coach @ Indiana State. He left a head coaching job there to go back to being an assistant to Dana Altman at Oregon because of the chemistry between the two and the pay differential. The nice thing is that Miles is not taking a chance on a young inexperienced assistant just because he has had a personal friendship with someone or because he came from Nebraska. He is taking a coach with a wealth of experience and success - who, oh by the way, has a lot of the same basketball philosophies as Miles it appears.
  10. I agree. Shields stepped up and took control the last 3 minutes of the half. Petteway and Shields I think will get better looks this 2nd half as fatigue sets in on the defensive side for OsU.
  11. Had troubles accessing this board a few minutes ago. The traffic on here has to be a record tonight! LOVE IT!
  12. First the Husker women win the Big 10 Tournament and now this win by the men!!! I can only imagine what the Railyard and Haymarket was like this afternoon and tonight after the game!!! From the video on TV, it looked like one huge tailgate party!! Go Big Red. The student section did us proud tonight too!
  13. Agreed that Parker and Shields both looked so much stronger and explosive! Rivers too for that matter, doesn't seem like he is going to snap in two like he did last year.
  14. Good point. Should have included him as well. He is now added.
  15. First of all, I have to say I have been a fan of both Husker football and basketball since I was a little kid. I didn't get the chance to go to Husker basketball games like I did football games when I was little; however, during college in the late Moe & early Neebasketball era, I was a fixture at the basketball games. I want to get everyone's opinion on these questions as I have done a lot of thinking over the last year about where my excitement concerning Husker sports is directed towards. I think Tim Miles is setting the standard for how coaches at Nebraska need to handle their program, players and COACHING STAFF. I don't want to be critical of any Husker coaches; however, with the great basketball fans on this board, I wonder if Husker basketball unseats Husker football as the sport you are most passionate about @ Nebraska or if Husker football still is #1 overall.
  16. Who's this McDermott you speak of? Is he the coach who hires his assistants from the Midland women's program via the Bellevue West girls team? That's funny. Coach Miles just takes assistants from Georgetown. Good luck, Creighton. Good luck assistant coach whatever your name is. I hope you're able to take everything you learned in the high school girls and NAIA women's ranks and parlay that into some nice Big East American big boy league recruits. Or whatever they are calling it. Really, when you think about it, why wouldn't someone like Hunter, who has seen his conference (Big East) erode into a mixture of leftovers and mid-majors from what was once an elite league, want to move up to the BIG LEAGUES!
  17. Hey - if there wasn't already a "blue hair" board locally with the name "underground", I would suggest changing to the "Husker Underground Forum" as I feel like we on this board are the ground swell, the roots of the program among all of those "fans" that have a passing interest or bandwagon interest in our basketball program.
  18. I really could care less what Shatel has to say about most anything anymore. As I have stated before, just because he has a journalism degree does not mean that he has any better observations than Joe Schmoe does. In fact - I would rather hear the average Joe Schmoe's opinion than his. This message board has more quality information than he could provide in any column. We stopped taking the Weird Harold more than 4 years ago by the way.....
  19. LB is an egotistical writer that does not know when to dial back on his biases. It bothers me though that too many people hang on every word that he & Shatel write. I don't even get the OWH anymore. With forums like this on HHC, you get the opinions of real fans (both good & bad opinions). Those guys are people who are trying to hang onto the good ol' days when everyone cared what they wrote. Since we don't anymore, they find they have to get attention in some way.
