  1. Just my humble opinion -- but yes, without a doubt, without question. But again, that is just my opinion.
  2. We got 12 tickets in the third row, mid-court. Should be fun!
  3. From the Then & Now interview of Brian Carr: HHC: 1985-1986 is a very memorable one for many reasons. Before we get to the positive, we have to ask what you remember about the illegal practice that happened at Mabel Lee. In your opinion, was that blown way out of proportion, and as a player, how did it make you feel? BC: That was kind of the situation that I was talking about earlier in regards to Coach Iba, as far as making it very difficult. I don’t know… I hated the fact how everything occurred. Not just from the media side and not just from the players and coaching side, but just the whole situation. It was so tough to deal with, especially being 20 years old or whatever. I wish I could go back and change some things that took place and that were said, and so on. It was strange to have your own newspaper do that to you, to have that planted in the paper. But at the same time, if what we were doing was illegal or against the rules, I don’t know, I just did what we were supposed to do, and just learned to play. I didn’t want to deal with that other stuff. And from Bill Jackman HHC: 1985-1986 was a memorable year in Nebraska basketball history, as it marked the first modern day NCAA Tournament appearance for the Huskers. Before we talk about this, we’d like to get your thoughts on the “illegal practice” that took place at Mabel Lee Hall. What do you remember about it? BJ: No comment. (Laughs) Do you think that the Mabel Lee Hall fiasco still grates on that team!?!?
  4. Sort of. I am sure he was prompted, but he commented on me playing football, basketball and baseball and finding a way to run track. Something about academics must take a seat somewhere in the backseat.
  5. That would be/is great news!
  6. The problem with having a game at a smaller (but great) venue is that the small wage earner would be excluded. The fair resolution is to have all tickets go up for sale on a lottery basis. I am pretty giddy if we just continue to have home games in our pretty special current home.
  7. What the heck???? Should I believe this? Should I care? Is this new? Did I just miss this? Heck, it is legal in his home town/state, so is this mistake. I am soooo confused. Mo Washington got popped in Lincoln and it made the news, so maybe this is nothing. Scotts Bluff County Court May 3 Jervay Green, 20, was fined $449 on a charge of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. https://www.starherald.com/news/local_news_briefs/public-record-july/article_cf4961ee-db7f-5082-ae0a-e318294806bb.html

  9. Bob D was great for his time. Bob would not be able to handle things the same way today. But it is really hard to argue with the results. He led a good ol boy network. I still remember he appeared at my HS sports banquet and shocked me when he specifically talked about me in his speech. Absolutely floored me.
  10. Love seeing this kind of talent. Now if we can consistently get the top player each year, it would be the cherry on top.
  11. Very tough to judge; and although the trip will be helpful, I'm not sure we will really know this team until December. Heck, we often say we don't know a juco until the second semester...we not only have a couple jucos, we have a full team of newbies. It is good to be optimistic, but unfair expectations can destroy a team.
  12. I wasn't surprised by Langford's high draft position. The kid could/can ball, but he seemed to be hurt or played while hurting. A bit like Isaiah. I am not sure we saw a completely healthy Isaiah until the second half of last year. That said...I am unsure how Copeland is doing with his rehab, but I hope he is given a chance sometime in the near future to show his game.
  13. I think we have one, perhaps two that have podcasts.
  14. Gary was/is a friend of mine as well. He was my next door dorm neighbor my first year at UNL and our kids were acquainted in HS. :)
  15. Hmm, for me, if the University of Cancun would offer, I would commit there.
  16. The title of the book can be cool, but the content of the book is what is important.
  17. Stupid question of the day. And this is with all due respect to the posters on this board who have podcasts. But what qualifies an individual to produce/star in podcasts? Is it sort of the same as writing a tweet? I guess what I am asking is why should anyone care what somebody says on a podcast?
  18. Happy birthday Danny. As to credit, I think Danny did get a lot of credit. He wouldn't have it any other way. He was the type of dude who would tell you what he was going to do, and then busted asses to accomplish his goals. So he did get credit, what he didn't get though was a renewed welcome mat. Things happened, some within his control, and a little bit out of his control. Those things became a noose around his neck that replaced his cool Gary Novotny ties.
  19. Right, wrong or indifferent; the use of marijuana within the college age bracket (and likely the entire population) is increasing. Why would anyone be surprised that the we are seeing it on our campus with athletes or any other college student. In 2017, 38 percent of full-time college students aged 19-22 reported using marijuana at least once in the prior 12 months, and 21 percent reported using at least once in the prior 30 days. Both of these prevalence levels peaked in 2016, the highest found since 1987, and did not change significantly in 2017. The 2017 prevalence levels represent gradual increases since 2006 when they were 30 percent and 17 percent, respectively. https://news.umich.edu/marijuana-use-among-us-college-students-remains-at-highest-level-in-three-decades/
  20. Humph, I am not impressed or even happy that he received an offer from Wisconsin, unless of course he chooses the Huskers.
  21. It has been a weird few months for me. I have sat back and I am just taking "all of it" in. It has been a whirlwind, and it is easy to understand the robust positive vibe. I am willing to take a wait and see approach. I want to see the players, the coaches strategy, the overall product and the results. It is hard when you are seeing a complete new product on the court. With the exception of Thor, we do not know how the players or the staff will react to basketball at this level. Is that good or bad? So although I am pretty sure what we will see will be great, I cannot and will not put on my rose-colored glasses just quite yet.
  22. Is it wrong that I am responding to this post only to make sure I am not the only one to notice the boobs in the background in this video? You mean the fake ones?
