  1. Did they have reserved seats? I just went in and got 4 that said they were general admission. I don't remember for sure but I thought last year we got reserved seats.
  2. True - ublinstu in terms of more recent times. But old timers like me remember full crowds in Devaney through the 1990's - and really before then as well. Husker fans' support of NU basketball has generally been very good - particularly in comparison to the level of success. I agree that was not necessarily true (or at least not as true) the last few years at Devaney - but NU Hoops was a very hot ticket in the 1990's and we had very good attendance before then as well.
  3. They did have a new rule this year that you could not add tickets if you already had 8 or more. We have a family block started by my parents who have had season tickets going way back to the years in the Coliseum. We have had 8 since PBA opened and 2 years ago we added 2 more - best we could get then was 200 level when our time came up then. This year there were quite a few 100 level seats when it got to us - midday yesterday. My niece wanted to add 2 to our block but I was not able to do that - just moved the 200 level seats down to 100 level fairly close to where our other ones are l
  4. Watching Cam Mack's Prairie View A&M team blow their NCAA chance - losing by double digits to a team they beat twice during the season. Cam has made some really nice passes - he does see the floor incredibly well - but his teammates can't seem to finish at the hoop today at least. Not sure if he has scored - only recall him taking a couple of shots. So no arrows in the ceiling today so far I don't think.
  5. Actually I would take Miles over Richard Pitino every day of the week - and twice on Sunday. A big blunder if UNM takes Pitino instead of Miles in my opinion.
  6. RIcky Marsh was a pretty good player as well. He was the PG that helped get Jerry lots of his points.
  7. Would never have been called except he got a reputation by doing that early in the year and the refs now look for it and don't want him to get away with it. HUGE mistake to do it now.
  8. Walker is back on the bench now - but just sitting there. He was there at the beginning of the 2nd half but then gone for awhile - that would be consistent with him being sick I guess ?
  9. Anyone know why ? Andre played well in the first half - but still would rather have Walker on the floor.
  10. Well #4 for Wisconsin just shot two of the ugliest looking free throws I have ever seen at the college level.
  11. We just made both ends of a 1 and 1. That hardly ever happens !
  12. We have to be the worst team in America at running a 2-1 break. Which frankly is a problem that predates Hoiberg. Miles' teams were awful at that as well.
  13. Has Lakes even played in the second half? I think Fred realized starting him was a mistake. If he can't get shots he does us no good on the floor.
  14. I actually have always like Shamiel Stevenson and thought he should be getting more minutes. He makes some really good and athletic plays. That said he also does so many inexplicably bad things that he is SO frustrating to watch. Sort a metaphor for our while team this year really. That dunk he just missed is a great example. You like the aggression - but we are making a run here and that was a key bucket. Understand the moment and just make DAMN SURE that ball goes in. In that situation we get just as much momentum from the made basket - we didn't need the sh
  15. How did they not call that guy out of bounds? Ref was right there looking at it and looked to me his foot was clearly on the line.
  16. OK - but Shamiel just made two very nice plays as well.
  17. Horrible decision by Mayen there - he can't try to dribble in traffic.
  18. Any chance they change the time of the McNeese St game since the MTE games set for later that day have gone away? Or are we locked into that 11 am time because of BTN?
  19. Personally I hate the all blacks - and that was even before the football debacle today. But I am old school - you have home uni's , road uni's and none of this alternate BS. Overall just play hard - a player should not spend 1 second thinking about what their uniform looks like.
  20. Good points regarding the potential difference between the Orlando tournament situation and the one we are trying to put together. I do hope that difference is sufficient to produce a different result. I agree to the extent that the enthusiasm for the tournament is tied to enthusiasm about the upcoming season. I share that enthusiasm as well. Believe me when it comes to NU basketball I drink as much koolaid as anyone - and have done so for decades now. :). But that is based on Nebraska participating in a basketball event - independent of where it is located. My point was si
  21. I think the biggest hurdle to this tournament happening is getting Big 10 approval to do it. GIven the conference attitude about football it is hard to be optimistic about this actually happening. I think the fact that Orlando gave up on hosting all the tourney's that planned to move there actually makes it less likely that the one at NU will actually happen. That said I am not sure about the excitement of NU hosting this event is all that well founded. If it does happen I would expect very few - if any fans to be admitted to the games. I have had season BB tickets to NU ga
