    Mr. Red reacted to 49r in Jon Rothstein is in the Building.   
    Back to Rothstein for a minute, there's a pretty interesting read about him here (about 2/3 of the way down, although the rest of the article is pretty interesting too):

    You're very much mistaken here.
    Wheeler was called for the foul, not Haarms because Wheeler pushed him from behind
    Here is the push with Haarm getting ready to jump

     
    Easley is trying to avoid the block while also no longer being pushed by Wheeler. He's at an odd angle where he should have just fallen to the floor

     
    Haarms is tracking the ball the entire time and blocks it easily.  He is simultaneously just realizing that Easley is undercutting is legs because Easley has dropped into a figure skating pose to keep his balance. Easley is also looking at the ball.

    I mean, congratulations Indiana.  It only took you 4 years and 4 games, and overtime...at home...against a team rebuilding with a completely new roster and coach, with three guys sitting out transfer years, another leaving the team and yet another suspended for God knows what reason...but you got that dub against Nebraska!
     
    You Hoosiers must be pretty pumped!!!  👍

    But our Women's bowling team is currently 3rd in the nation. (I think). and once again a sport not played by the blue clad asshats.

    I'm a few days late on this but...
    For those of you that went to the game, did you catch the little bowling stunt by Billy BlueJay during a media timeout later in the second half?
     
    So Billy Bluejay lays on a scooter at halfcourt and there are giant bowling pins set up under one of the baskets...pretty standard mascot stunt right?  WRONG
     
    So the Krayton Krazies (or whatever you call those students in stripes) push and hold him all the way through the pins to the baseline, at this point this is probably the lamest stunt I've ever seen at a D1 basketball game... little did we know it was all a setup!
     
    As the crowd looks on in ambivalence, the PA announcer says something to the tune of, "Way to go Billy Bluejay!  One of the best mascots in D1 athletics!  He sure does love his bowling - at least someone around here is going BOWLING"
     
    The Jayskers and vests have no idea how to react, do they boo?  do they cheer?  Do they yell, "go back to your shanties!" at the people in red one more time?  So the whole crowd just settles in a surprised "ohhhhh"
    It honestly was the highlight of the game for me.  Unfortunately not many people were left to witness it.   I just love that they set up those whole stupid stunt just so they could use the bowling punchline.  Bravo Jays!

    Mr. Red reacted to Handy Johnson in Does it make me a bad person if ...   
    Yer spot on Matt, most “Husker Fans” have tuned out the Basketball team before the season even starts. That article was directed to the people on this board & how many of these gut punches can WE take before we tune out. Since many/most of us were weaned on 7th or 8th place finishes in the Big 8, he grossly underestimates our level of masochism... We’re in it for the long haul regardless, but an 0-fer in Conference is almost unthinkable, there’s too many other bad teams.

    Mr. Red reacted to hhcmatt in Sports Nightly 2019-20   
    We don't know how Hoiberg handles redshirts...does he dictate them or do the guys?  Did they want Arop? Did they not?
    We had 2-3 guys sitting out already which turned into 3 guys and now we're down to 9 scholarship players with Curtis out. He'll get more playing time as this thing goes along.
     
    Otherwise, guys today don't redshirt. This deal where we think we can build up an advantage through fifth year seniors through guys that aren't going to play right away isn't how modern day top level D-1 programs work unfortunately. The purpose of a redshirt these days is so you don't miss a year when you transfer somewhere else.

    @jimmykc I think that image not properly displaying on the site to the point where you know this is obviously what no one wants to see probably unintentionally brings home your thoughts on a basketball penalty box.

    Mr. Red reacted to Ron Mexico in Scouting Creighton   
    A true rival is a team that when you win it makes your season, regardless of record. Winning that game saves a coaches job. Heat on TO almost completely went away when he finally be OU. 
     
    Beating CU is great mostly because it shuts up their fan base and Omaha media. 
    Our true rival right now is the NCAA tournament 🙂

    I really don't buy this. Creighton is easily the most brought up team on this board. The switching of conferences essentially killed all rivalries prior to 2012. If these guys aren't our rival, then no one is our rival.
