  1. good news is we have probably the best coach in America to either fix the shot or decide that the shot is just fine if it doesn't get blocked and goes in the hoop.
  2. 1620 needs more basketball talk with Bahe gone. I hope Sharp will talk college basketball, but I won't hold my breath on the other two shows talking about anything other than Nebraska football, food, and making teenage jokes.
  3. Very well could. Especially if nobody can get a rebound. He’s proven capable of that
  4. I didn’t include him because I think he redshirts.
  5. Here’s how confident I am they’ll be in the rotation: 1 Haanif Cheatham 2 Cam Mack 3 Dachon Burke 4 Jervay Green 5 Matej Kavas 6 Shamiel Stevenson (if eligible) 7 Samari Curtis 8 Yvan Ouedraogo 9 Kevin Cross 10 Thor 11 Easley 8-10 is where it gets dicey IMO as each of them provides something completely different. There will be some games where we need a smart unselfish player like Thor to come in and make plays. There will be some games where we need all the fouls we can give down low and call on Yvan and Cross. But IMO the first seven are for sure playing in darn near every game. Now if Shamiel can’t play first semester, Thor and Kevin will probably share his minutes.
  6. Scoring averages from Italy trip through 3 games. I am really liking how balanced we are. I am guessing Mack would be up there with Burke and Cheatham if he were there, and Ouedraogo would be somewhere between 4-6 ppg, but that's ok for him as long he's 2-2 or 3-4 and not 2-10. Dachon Burke 14.7 ppg Haanif Cheatham 13.0 ppg Jervay Green 9.7 ppg Matej Kavas 9.3 ppg Samari Curtis 8.7 ppg Shamiel Stevenson 6.7 ppg Dalano Banton 5.7 ppg Kevin Cross 5.7 ppg Thor Thorbjarnarson 4.7 ppg Charlie Easley 2.0 ppg Jace Piatkowski 1.5 ppg Bret Porter 1.0 ppg
  7. Scoring averages from Italy trip through 2 games: Dachon Burke 16.5 ppg Haanif Cheatham 13.5 ppg Jervay Green 10.5 ppg Matej Kavas 9.5 ppg Shamiel Stevenson 7.5 ppg Kevin Cross 7.5 ppg Samari Curtis 6.5 ppg Dalano Banton 5.5 ppg Thor Thorbjarnarson 3.5 ppg Charlie Easley 3.0 ppg Jace Piatkowski 1.5 ppg Bret Porter 1.0 ppg
  8. Without 2 major contributors this year as well....impressive
  9. Thor looked ok. He's also in his third year of college. And he can't shoot worth a lick.
  10. no idea how good that competition was, but i liked what i saw. lots of transition basketball, easy layups, wide open 3s. A couple players I would like to see not taking 3 pointers as much, and interior defense will be a big issue without Yvan. Hope Stevenson gets eligible right away, we need him for many reasons.
  11. I said when he committed, maybe not on here but somewhere, he is a better basketball player than Thor.
  12. I wouldn't be surprised if we finished anywhere from 4th - 13th. Top 3? Yeah I'd be a bit surprised. 14th? I would be a bit surprised. There's no way we can't be better than Northwestern, right? I think our talent is easily in the 4-10 range already.
  13. We just had a year where we had more experience than almost any other Big Ten team. And we saw how that turned out. Not trying to bust your chops, but what we lack in terms of playing experience I think we significantly upgraded in coaching experience and that will matter a heck of a lot more.
  14. To be honest, I don't care who starts and I don't think it matters because whoever starts at the 5 for us, in my opinion, will not play more than 20 mpg and we'll end up with a bunch of guards on the court most of the time. I'll subscribe to the KISS (keep it simple stupid) theory: These 9 guys will play (if healthy and eligible, in order of how confident I am they will play a lot) Cam Mack (duh) Haanif Cheatham (he was brought here by Fred for one season for a reason) Matej Kavas (see above) Dachon Burke (has to play a ton) Jervay Green (has to play a ton) Shamiel Stevenson (as big a 6-6 dude as you'll find, he'll hold his own in the Big Ten) Yvan Ouedraogo (more physically ready than Cross) Samari Curtis (super talented addition so late in the process) Kevin Cross (has skills but needs to get in shape to see anything extensive...if Shamiel only becomes eligible in January, think he takes Cross's minutes) These 4 will get mop-up time: Thorir Thorbjarnarson Akol Arop Charlie Easley Jace Piatkowski These 2 will not play: Dalano Banton Derrick Walker
  15. Mayor can wait: Don’t expect any Iowa State men’s basketball games soon against Fred Hoiberg-coached Nebraska. Asked by a young fan in the crowd if that was a possibility, director of athletics Jamie Pollard suggested that the only possibility might be in the NCAA tourney, quickly pointing out, “That’s one thing Nebraska hasn’t been to ever. They’ve got a little work to do before we might be seeing them on the court.’’ It should be clarified, Nebraska has in fact been to the NCAA Tournament seven times, although they have not won a game in the NCAA Tournament. ^^That's how a real reporter could have handled that mess of a lie.
