  1. @Huskerpapa says those are NBL salaries not in the lower division NBL1 (which is where Cairns Marlins play). Not sure what the salary structure is at that level. Might not be much.
  2. So I did a little more digging tonight and it appears that the Cairns Marlins play in NBL1 North which is the second division of basketball in Australia (semi-pro???), maybe a bit more like lower level college ball in the US? Dunno. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basketball_in_Australia The first division, NBL, is the league that Jack McVeigh plays in. Interestingly enough I noticed that the Cairns team in the first division, the Taipans, has a familiar name on their roster. Keanu Pinder. Small world, hoops...
  3. Might be better than what we've had to endure for the past few years.
  4. Took two days AFTER he played a pro game in Australia for us to learn that he's left the program....
  5. Would be nice if we could apply some of that to fielding a basketball team that isn't totally embarrassing.
  6. It's hard to argue against the quality of players Frost has picked up in the portal this off season.
  7. Sucked for me as a Liverpool fan. At least Sporting salvaged the weekend by getting an unexpected result with a heavily rotated team out in San Jose.
  8. Sounds like you had a great time. Where did you go?
  9. All this is great and everything, but I want to hear more about this fishing trip to North Dakota! Sounds like great fun!!
  10. Griesel with the player-speak: Of course we've heard it all before, but maybe this is the year it happens?
  11. This is a nice sentiment in theory, but it is pretty alarming to think that it would take a meeting with the AD for Hoiberg to recognize that what he was doing all season wasn't working and that he could just flip some magical switch to get the players to just play harder/better all of a sudden. It's much more likely that we just got stupidly lucky in those last three games of the season and stumbled into those wins.
  12. Big win for the boys. Salloi returns to form! Much needed win tonight!!!
  13. I'd be over the moon if we could finish 9th in the Big Ten. Sadly.
