    In state kids?

    Thanks Jacob!
  3. The season starts this evening. I thought I would start this topic for those wanting to provide head-ups regarding upcoming games, post-game reviews and general discussion. We have two players who will be playing for the Huskers, and two that we are recruiting. Many other players are certainly worth watching. Enjoy the season. I live very near NorthStar and will be taking in as many of their games as possible. My old home town is also in the preseason ratings, so for me, it will be an entertaining season.

    Nebraska High School Basketball (18-19)

    If time allows, my plan is to attend this game after the Husker game on Saturday. I will be interested to see if our recruits spend any time going head to head.

    In state kids?

    I don't know the names right off the top of my head, but what do you think of the big man from Kearney, the big man from Lincoln Southeast. I know the Kearney kid is a Liberty recruit (could he play high division I?), I heard the Southeast kid is a late bloomer and is likely headed to JUCO.

    I might also add one other opinion, which may not be well accepted. There should be an additional son that is in the HOF, Barry Bonds! I may not like Barry, as he never played for the Cubbies, but the dude could hit the ball...and hit it perhaps better than any person I watched in person. He was great before steroid's and obviously the use of 'roids accentuated his HR totals and likely extended his career...but he was a HOF prior to his lapse in judgement. (His dad was Bobby Bonds, and he too, was an extremely talented player).

    Correct! Lot of Boone's as well, but not HOF worthy.

    Game Day Essentials: Game #19 at Rutgers

    One of those games you have to worry about IF we are still looking back at Michigan State and/or looking past Rutgers to our next game and/or we shoot the ball as poorly as we did against Michigan State. I anticipate with our veteran team that we will bounce back and play an efficient and effective game tonight. Let's get it done men!
  12. How long has Langford and Ahrens been out?
  13. Oh...I do not disagree at all. But the point I was attempting to make in a more subliminal way was that the Huskers are a very good team. We have our flaws and areas of opportunity; but we are good enough to play and beat a top eight team. I believe Michigan State has the ability to play into the top eight, yet we are able to stick with them. What should that tell the public?
  14. Duke just beat Virginia, and if I read the box score correctly, they played two subs, neither of whom scored.
  15. I will not be surprised to see Michigan State in the final eight this year. I think people underestimate the power of an excellent defensive team that can also score sufficiently. Yes, we could have won if we shot better. But at least in part, our shooting woes were tied to the quality of Michigan State's defense. Obviously, the Michigan State defense travels well.

    2018-19 Husker opponents

    The announcers during the Wisconsin game had a pretty decent discussion regarding the flopper. They said that because of the early season flopping by Davison, the referees are punishing him by not calling legit defensive plays. I can feel for him. But the dude spent the early season reveling in his flopping and is now paying the price.
  17. Last year Michigan (we beat) and KU (lost a heart breaker) were both excellent teams. Reaching back, I do think we have seen excellent teams nearly every year. Just my humble opinion though...
  18. Spot on, that was my take-away as well. We have a performance lab that is cutting edge. I assume if we have leveraged it properly, our playing time and limited bench and so forth, is being managed.
  19. Worth the read regarding tired legs/fatigue issues: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5969183/ The conclusion to this article, reads in part: "Implementing an athlete monitoring program that includes workload and fatigue monitoring and management in basketball may assist practitioners and sport coaches to prescribe appropriate workloads that optimize training adaptations, decrease accumulated fatigue and allow athletes to perform at their highest level." It is my understanding that UNL is on the leading edge of this type of practice with our Athletic Performance Laboratory. This UNL Department leverages CB3’s brain-imaging equipment and the performance lab’s sophisticated motion-tracking sensors, creating a more complete picture of what influences behavior and performance. Perhaps our players and staff leveraged our technology in order to drive performance and cardio-vascular excellence. Then again, I may have no clue what I am talking about. http://cb3.unl.edu/athletics-research-partnership/
  20. There is some good news regarding our depth. First is Tanner; he has shown he can provide a solid 10 to 15 minutes per game. Nana has been ill. His contributions since the start of the new year has been pretty much non-existence...until last night. He looks healthy, and if so, he will be able to contribute 10 to 18 minutes per outing. In fact, on certain nights, he may somewhat be a scoring machine. Lastly, Amir is slowly but surely coming back into form. When he totally back (likely within the next two weeks) he will bring his pre-mono game with him. He will not contribute much from a scoring perspective, but all other facets of the game, he will contribute. Right???

    This game might, again might have a more significant Brady siting.
