    OT: The Key to Our Home Court Advantage

    Getting a load of bird poop is considered lucky in many cultures. Maybe this will be our lucky year.

    He will not be doing basketball broadcasts any more due to his new responsibilities. I, for one, will miss the snappy patter between Kent and Matt.

    Too bad Ubel is still pursuing his playing career.
  5. Since this is "down time" for most Husker sports, I thought these trivia questions were too good not to share. Anyone care to guess? 1. The same pitcher threw Babe Ruth his last pitch in an organized major league game as a Yankee and Jackie Robinson his first pitch as a Brooklyn Dodger. Who was he? 2. Ted Williams only asked one player to ever autograph a baseball. Who was that player?

    Way O.T. trivia questions

    Answers 1. Johnny Sain 2. Babe Ruth. July 28, 1943 in a fundraiser for the War, a team of Navy recruits known as the "Cloudbuster Nine" played a team of Yankee/Indian stars in Yankee Stadium. Sain pitched to Ruth who was the manager for the all stars and he walked in his final appearance. At the game Williams asked Babe to sign a baseball, the only time he ever asked anyone to do that. Source: Anne Keene, author of the book "Cloudbuster Nine". She gave an interview in the NY Times on July 28,2018 with this information. See the LJS for a review of her book if interested.

    Way O.T. trivia questions

    Both wrong according to my "inside" source. Answers tonight if anyone else would like to guess. And both questions are based on a single game.

    Way too early Top 25

    I'm pretty sure that BPI stands for By Pinheaded Idiots. I am also virtually certain these ratings are picked from a hat somewhere.

    That is because the Diaz era existed in BT time. The cosmos seems to have expanded into a separate time continuum in the AT era.

    Mike Scioscia to Step Down

    As the "Human Battering Ram" so aptly stated, this may all be a bit of "Poppycock".

    Does anyone else think it is odd that 4 players on the team weigh exactly 180 lbs.?

    Creighton #71. This must mean we beat them by 25 this year.

    College hoops corruption case

    Long vows to put KU football at the top of the Big 12. They have obviously hired an AD from an alternate universe.

    Danny Nee's Old Hang-out (one of them, anyway)

    I date Barry's downfall to the day they dropped Cip's hamburgers from their menu.

    Roby (is Good)

    No question about Roby having all the tools. The only potential problem is that he has been a bit brittle physically to this point in his career. If he stays healthy he could become NU's best ever if he continues to improve at his present rate.

    Player Power Rankings

    Left off Copeland from choices and misspelled Watson. I'll defer vote until these corrections are made.

    Thorstein could have showed him if he hadn't been dead.

    Gave you an upvote for bringing Thorstein to the HHC table. Since he is dead, he won't be much good to the team except for setting picks and maybe blocking out.

    Woo Hoo.

    Isn't Veblen a power forward on the Norwegian 17 and under team?
  23. Eight players from the very weak Big 10 conference just indicates how far the talent level in the NBA has fallen.

    OT: Going to the Hospital

    Having observed CHI's management style locally, I would suggest that the money would be better spent in upgrading the health care of patients and not in the promotion of their product.
