    College hoops corruption case

    Attorneys representing the University of Kansas have attended nearly every day of the three-week trial. Why is that necessary?

    One-and-Done Going Away?

    I think colleges should be able to play charity games against G-League teams.

    The college experience is GREATLY underrated.

    FBI Ramification

    It has been a number of years ago, but I remember being part of a debate that the best way to advance your team in college basketball was to cheat. If you don't get caught, you will have an elite team; and if you do get caught, you will simply get your hand slapped, but you will still have a great team. It is hard to refute that mindset. It seems the best coaches are those that can discreetly cheat and get away with it.

    B1G News and Views: 2018-19 edition

    Some good love for the Huskers, rated 4th. I am not sure I understand the rationale behind Wisconsin being number 3 though. Big Ten X-factor: Nebraska point guard Glynn Watson Jr. For two seasons, as coach Tim Miles told Sporting News, Watson couldn’t take any shot that would upset his coach. The Huskers needed any spark he could provide. When he found himself surrounded by proficient teammates last season, however, Watson sometimes didn’t know to behave. He still forced a lot of the same shots. He shot only .347 from the field and .291 on 3-pointers as a junior. Miles explained that it was an adjustment for Watson to become a creator for others, and that significant progress has been made since last season. If Watson fully embraces that role and still uses his ingenuity as a scorer in late-clock situations, Nebraska could challenge for the Big Ten title.

    I don't believe Lee even played against Northwestern. If he did, it was on a very limited basis. Bottom line, our depth in the defensive backfield was widely discussed prior to the season. So there are not a lot of places to reach at this moment, to find significant talent.

    Everything tends to be conjecture at this moment. But Coach Kendig sort of went from hero to zero pretty quick, and the timing is bad for the team. So one is left with assumptions at this point. My assumption is that the violation(s) must be significant. Unless of course AD Moos has a zero tolerance policy.

    2019 SF Yavuz Gultekin - Virginia Tech

    We need a power player or two in this recruiting cycle. Our guard/wing positions seem close to max unless we have transfers, which is certainly a possibility.

    So here is a question that begs to be asked. If coaches aren't concerned about getting caught cheating and/or paying players, then why doesn't everyone do it? Take it a step further. Regulate the payment and pay all Division I players.

    Annual "Which Roster is Better?" Thread

    I wish I could easily answer and say it is the roster this year. But before I answer the question, I need to see the newcomers. Any guess at this point, is a wishful guess.

    Way too early Top 25

    I would plug a much younger Pike into our line up. That would be pretty potent line up. Heck, especially since we fantasizing.

    Maybe comparing apples to oranges a bit, but in Saben's first year at Alabama, they went 6-6 in the regular season. He patched together a team with former HC Mike Shula's players. The shelf wasn't exactly bare, but it did not have the type of players (mentally/physically) that Saben wanted or needed. The rest --- is history.

    Tickets: Anyone received them yet?

    Did anyone else get the email that said that just the #1 Husker fans would receive their tickets today, or was that just my imagination?

Great article from Chris Heady. Talks about leadership and how the team has to grow. The talent is there, now they need a purpose so to speak. Worth spending five minutes reading.

    Nebraska Football 2018-2019

    I waited a day to post but thought I would use this as a bit of therapy. With about five minutes to play, I was sort of getting emotional as I thought we were right on the cusp of getting this losing monkey off of our back. But... Here is the deal. I thought we played well the majority of the game. But the mental mistakes and penalties are simply difficult to overcome. It comes down to learning how to win again. Seeing the same mistakes reoccur is problematic. Seeing seniors having brain farts is hard to take. I can understand when a freshman or a player with inexperience makes mental errors, but for seniors, man, that is tough. I keep seeing enough good things to know that our future is bright, but for this staff, the players (and me) wins can't come soon enough.

    Nebraska Football 2018-2019

    If I recall correctly, with the exception being Vedral, CFU was prepared to restrict transfers to Nebraska. I am not about to accuse OSU of tampering, but a relationship was established with the coaches and staff at OSU. It would be foolish not to think that some contact occurs between players and the previous staff. Heck, Frost even admitted that he would not be a hypocrite as he recently had contacted Milton to wish him a happy birthday. It will be hard if not impossible to stop those contacts, especially with social media availability. I fall back on the point that if the players don't want to be here, then we shouldn't want them here. Where they transfer should be open and free, but competitive advantage is at risk if they transfer to a school within your conference. But heck, with trades and free-agency, players move in the professional leagues almost at will, and teams seem to overcome that movement.

    Bryce Hopkins 2021 6'5" small forward

    He probably weights more as a freshman than Isaiah did as a senior

    Charity Game?

    I will respond to your post as well Noah - I just received this message from Coach Eaton: Thank you for your interest in attending a basketball practice for our team this year. We will be having an open practice on Wednesday, October 24, at 5:00 pm at PBA. Other practices are closed to the general public. There are certain times in which we will allow collegiate or high school coaches to gain access; however, per NCAA rules, we track who is in attendance and what their school affiliation is. Thanks and hopefully you can make our practice on the 24th! Gregory Eaton

    Noah must have a great connection. I reached out to Coach Eaton today and received this message a bit ago: Thank you for your interest in attending a basketball practice for our team this year.

    Received my football ticket...whew. It came by email on my wife's email site...a week ago.

    I have reached out to Coach Eaton regarding a possible invite to a practice(s), but my search continues for my replacement football tickets.

    The rotation this year

    I have heard that Tim really likes the ability of Amir to guard four positions. That to me was a hint that Amir would make a great sixth man. But I guess we will know more within the month.
