  1. This is where I stopped reading. And the reason is because Fred can't keep guys around long enough to get to year 3 let alone 4 or 5.
  2. Hope for sooner. We got a date at home with KenPom #93 Rutgers on the 29th. Would be nice to get it through our guys and be able to play that one.
  3. I want as much effort to go into it as possible in destroying that abomination. Ritualistically. We should make it a whole event. That lasts weeks. Ensure that nothing like that thing will ever inhabit the earth ever again.

  5. I'm just wondering what purpose this thread has in the recruiting forum...
  6. I would like to see someone call in to 93.7 tomorrow morning and ask Sip if he's heard this stuff...and if he's going to write a piece on it. *cough* @Norm Peterson *cough*
  8. It saddens me too...actually I have a lot of conflicting emotions about it honestly. I'm frustrated and angry and saddened by the state of the NUAD as it stands now. Embarrassed by the constant mocking we as Nebraskans and Husker fans receive from our rival fan bases... ...and yet I am also happy with the lifestyle changes I've made now as I pursue much more healthy and productive activities that ultimately fill my life with more joy. I quietly mock others who pathetically base their own sense of well being and self worth on a college sports team that they follow, particularly those who did not even attend the college whose teams they support. Also, the increasing professionalism of formerly amateur athletics - and the collegiate environment of which I became so fond of as a Nebraska student and fan, which is dissolving before our eyes - has really turned me off of the games. Which is not to say that I don't support athletes getting paid. They absolutely should, and they deserve it, but it's just a symptom of the larger problem in society in which we place way too much emphasis on these silly sports. Especially in the US. College and pro. There is too much money. The media is also a big problem, ESPN stands to gain billions of dollars every year whipping fans into a frenzy. We didn't care about this stuff 40 years ago like we do now. But all of this is just a huge digression, and maybe it's me changing my life priorities, and maybe it's just a product of the teams I care about most being so bad for so long, I don't know. Maybe Scott will get the football team turned around and maybe Fred will finally get it going and maybe I will get sucked right back in. But probably, for me at least, I will never have quite the passion that I once did for it all. And maybe that's not such a bad thing.
  9. This is where I'm at. Except I don't watch any of the games. I wait until after the game to check the score to see how much we lost by. If it's under 20, I'm actually happy and then I go on with my day. Fred Hoiberg and this team in particular has done something I didn't think was possible. They've made me actually hate college hoops and I can't be bothered to watch ANY games, not just Nebraska. Posting here is the only personal investment in the game that I have left.
  10. Before doing that, though, I might just try going down to the rail yard and seeing if anyone has an extra ticket. You might just get someone to give you one free.

  13. Take solace in the fact the KenPom is horrific at picking individual games. One should not concern oneself with how he is doing in the overall game, but rather how terrible he is in individual games.
  14. I agree 100% with this. It's always been a problem for new coaches since Nee (who did recruit in state very well). Miles seemed to get that figured out but by the time he did it was too late.
  15. Doc was retired the day he moved into his office in the Hendricks center.
  16. It goes deeper: Amazingly, the first three College Football Playoffs (2015, 2016 & 2017) have only featured teams that are sponsored by Nike – Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, Oregon, Washington, Oklahoma and Michigan State. Nike also currently sponsors 17 of the last 19 FBS National Champions. Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, LSU, and USC, who all won multiple championships from 1998 to 2017, are all currently sponsored by Nike. Auburn, the 2010 National Champions, are sponsored by Under Armour, and Miami (FL), the 2001 National Champions, are sponsored by Adidas. In the FCS, Nike currently sponsors 11 of the last 17 (64.7 percent) National Champions. North Dakota State and Appalachian State won seven of the last 17 national championships combined, and Nike currently sponsors both schools. Eastern Washington, Delaware, Georgia Southern, and Massachusetts are FCS Champions who Adidas currently sponsors, while Western Kentucky University is the only champion since 1998 sponsored by Russell Athletics. https://www.samford.edu/sports-analytics/fans/2015/nike-and-its-domination-of-college-football I think the scales are tipped even more in favor of Nike in hoops. We've made the wrong move every step of the way for 30 years!
  17. Oh, they go back to 1997...forgot about that update:
  18. check this out: Lots of pretty interesting data compiled on here over the years: https://huskerhoopscentral.com/tags/KenPom/
  19. Danny took his first Husker team to the NIT final four and got a young 49r hooked on Husker Hoops. DAMN YOU DANNY NEE!!!
  20. KenPom says: 156 Nebraska at 5 Purdue Purdue 90-69 (98%) Fox Sports 1 West Lafayette, IN Mackey Arena
  21. I'm confident the answer to that question would be "yes". I am sure that Majerus was not inclined to turn down a free dinner. No matter who was buying.
