  1. I can't argue with that lineup but it raises several troubling questions. Are we going to bring our 7' Juco All-American off the bench, really? OR do you bring your most proven commodity off the bench in Derrick Walker? Playing them together makes sense in some situations, but think what we'll give up in overall ball movement & outside shooting (which we already sorely lack). Your last statement gives me the most pause, I'm afraid our Offense might be eye bleeding bad MOST of the time...
  2. Rather than asking out the prettiest girl in school knowing you’re going to get “shot down” it’s easier to ask out the Plain Jane that won’t say NO. Same thing applies here… I’ll be as excited as the next guy when the season starts trust me. But when you roll out with Walker, Wilcher, Keita, Gary, Greisel, (Breidenbach, Lloyd, etc) Do you see us making a BIG jump in the standings…?
  3. It looks like having a Bigger, more physical, defensive minded roster happened by default rather than design. I’m sure Fred was hoping for more highly skilled & polished offensive players, but that’s not what we were able to attract to Campus. I think of the parade of Juco All-Americans & Mr. Basketballs that have waltzed through here & how BAD we’ve been. Now I’m expected to believe a collection of “lunch pail” guys is going to get us over the top. Hopefully my season ticket renewal won’t go up…
  4. Obviously trying to get the 5 Star Sons of former All-Americans doesn’t work…
  5. We open vs Northwestern as a 9/12 point favorite. Early prognosticators have us going 6-6 which I’d say is the WORST possible scenario. That would give us three more undeserved years of Frost. Either play for a B1G Title or move on. Offense should be better simply by eliminating 2AM, Blackshirts probably much worse. Hoiberg lost his TWO leading scorers from a 13th place team, so…
  6. Imagine if Miles’s 4th place team in 2018 could’ve got that NCAA bid they so richly deserved & went on a Sweet 16 run or better! The team behind them in the standings played in the Title game so that’s hardly far fetched. Would’ve changed the Arc of the entire program….oh well
  7. Ashland-Greenwood standout Cale Jacobsen will be walking on this Fall. Welcome aboard young man & remember, there IS no place like Nebraska…!
  8. You certainly did, but my point followed that. We simply haven’t had enough GOOD players. Rose takes an overarching FALSE narrative that we’ve been “bad” for 20 years (we haven’t) then plays into the rampant provincialism around here that if we just had a few more Nebraska kids ALL would be right with the World…
  9. Ideally it’s a combination of BOTH, but the point I’m making is unless you have some NFL guys on the roster (regardless of where they’re from) you’re not going to be very good… Look at the lack of All-Conference let alone All-American players we’ve had under Riley/Frost…
  10. For every Ben Stille & Garret Nelson on the team, you don’t win unless you have players like Suh, Burkhead & Gregory…
  11. I could crush him when it comes to naming High School mascots or License Plate numbers but I’ll never forget his unwavering opinion that Tanner Lee was a combination of Johnny Unitas/John Elway…
  12. Chances ANY of those 3 see the Field: 0
  13. We had one the very BEST (Top 5) Freshman in program history & accomplished absolutely nothing. It’s hard to square the circle…Would I do it again? Sure I suppose, he was fun to watch play, but the WHOLE thing just leaves me feeling hollowed out.
  14. Who’s that, I was thinking of Masker & Haarberg…?
  15. Jim took the opportunity this morning on KFAB to take the Baylor Scheirman signing & fold it into an unhinged rant about the failings of BOTH the Football/Basketball programs. According to Rose the reason our programs have been “AWFUL” for 20 years is our inability or unwillingness to keep Nebraska kids at home. Everyone from Collier to Pelini to Miles was equally at fault & culpable. Aside from being factually inaccurate & a tired overly simple narrative, it’s convenient to say this NOW. Maybe Jim hasn’t heard of Sam Griesel, Charlie Easley, Teddy Allen, Johnny Trueblood, Akol Arop etc etc…
  16. Bryce sure would look good in Gold paired up with LeBron & AD…
  17. If that #13 isn’t James Palmer or Terran Petteway, you better be ready to pack a lunch…
  18. Welcome aboard young man, feel free to post your favorite Burton Cummings song Cip…
  19. I hope he ends up driving a Shwann’s Truck…
  20. Finishing .500 would mean no more losses to the Cal Riverside’s & Western Illinois of the World, all without your Top Two returning scorers. I’d love to get onboard, but I’ve got a sick feeling that “Rock Bottom” thread might hit a low colder than a well diggers a**…
  21. How much do you think Kyle Korver or Rodney Buford would go for these days…???
  22. Perfect, I was going to let ALL you closeted Bluebird fans know I’ve got a Kevin McKenna Lakers jersey for sale if you’re interested…
