    How the heck do you take a team picture WITHOUT all tour players present?  Good lord, that is stupid.
    Bottom line, that image is not a "team" photo.

    I'm over "moral victories" under Frost.  I can't take any more moral victories.  With that being said-- man that was fun, we haven't played like that in a while, and that was a legit Top 10 team.
     
    However, it's tough to be "happy" that we were close because we've been there so many times before.  At this point, I'd be ok with any direction the program took.  I think Scott could do it, we're right there, but also understand that it should already be done... if that makes sense.

    Yup.  Nothing earth shattering.  My two biggest worries as I watched that party is that the game is played with only one ball and we have a lot of players in need of that one ball.  So will chemistry issues occur due to playing time, roles and shot selection?  My response to myself was maybe yes, maybe no...we shall find out.
    Secondly, who are/is the leader.  My guess is that it is Trey and/or Walker?  But could it be Verge or Kobe?  Worse case scenario---will we have a fractured team?  
    Yet...so many feel good moments and there is a significant upgrade in depth and talent!

    Was really hoping to open up my favorite site today and see someone else write this... highly disappointed everyone. Highly. 

    First off, if you think you can make any definitive assumptions on this team after that, you're a lot better at this than I am. They were just having fun and playing pick-up - with the intention to entertain and have fun. 

    I'm going to start off with the main topic I'm sure everyone is wondering. Yes, Wilhelm Breidenbach will play this year and yes he's probably the greatest pick-up in Nebrasketball History. As soon as he signed his LOI looking through his thick goggles the program changed. 

    Wait? Who? McGowens? Trey? Trey's has a brother on the team? That's so nice!
    SO...... Two things can bet true at once. 1. Bryce McGowens has an NBA frame, skill set, etc... etc.. etc.. to be a Lottery Pick. 2. Bryce McGowens might not necessarily be ready to (or need to?) lead a B1G team as the go-to guy, give him the ball and get out of his way, 23ppg or whatever else a lot of us are thinking a 5-star could be. In other words, I don't think this is Kevin Durant for Texas. THAT'S OK - THERE'S A LOT OF GOOD, PRODUCTIVE SPACE BETWEEN KEVIN DURANT AND YOUR TYPICAL 5-START YOUNG LOTTERY PICK  - PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAPS LOCK OFF AND DELETE THE POST YOU'RE MAKING GETTING READY TO SCREAM AT ME. 

    There's a really good reason why I say the last paragraph. That reason - there's a lot of other dudes on this team who can tote the rock and be the guy any given night. We're gonna have Lat's night, Trey's night, Verge's night, etc.. Heck - maybe even Keisei's night (good lord it's scary to think of the runs he could go on if the match-ups are right). 

    Anyways - I'm not going to spend too much more time on the scrimmage. I don't believe you can draw much from what they showed Friday. But I will say I can foresee two potential issues:
    1. Rebounding/Girth. This has plagued us in the past. Especially if we can't play our tempo and make shots. We're kinda skinny again. I don't see a guy who I'm like, "that guys gonna get double digit rebounds a game." I hope Walker can withstand the pounding down there, and I really hope Andre is serious about trying to be more "Rodman-like" as he's mentioned on a podcast.
    2. Who's team is this? I see some potential conflict brewing... Who's our leader? Who's gonna have their hand on the ball in crunch time and late in the shot clock? I feel like there's a bit of a conflict between who believes they're that guy and who actually is. We'll see! Could be (I hope it is) nothing.

    It was a fun night.  Good crowd...perhaps 6 to 7000. A few were there for the post-basketball entertainment.   Some of the female fans were lacking ummm, cloth in certain areas...
    But what I think I saw was a deep and athletic team that likes to have fun.  A couple players stood out to me, and a couple sort of underwhelmed me a bit.  But it is still way to early to pass judgement.

    Yeah, Tominaga hit 16 I think.
    I am glad some people know the starting lineup.   I see ten potential starters.  I am not into anything other than winning and I am not sure who the first five should be...

    The interception was perhaps the second best thing that could have happened in that instance.  Oklahoma would have benefited by simply batting the ball down. 
    My lone issue, really, is our continued special teams ineptitude.  Totally and completely unacceptable.

    Come on...many of you are looking at this bass-ackwarwards.  Sort of how Husker basketball fans have looked at schedules in the past.  It is the other teams looking at their schedules concerned about seeing US on THEIR schedules.  That is the new normal.  We should be just fine.

    Hype and hope can be very cool...but perhaps we should see him play a few games, especially against tough competition before we anoint him a lottery pick.  There are a lot of studs out there who may have something to prove that may try to shoulder past him.  Just saying.
