  1. He has the size and the body type but hands need a lot of work. He's gotta have big hands but seems to lose control of the ball and it's loose in his palm when he shots. Often shoots the ball from damn near his wrist. That's why we see so many missed bunnies. A lot of the time when he's shooting it he has no part of the basketball being controlled by his fingertips. Not sure how to cure that...if it's a coordination thing that is just always going to be a problem or if he just needs more time handling and shooting a basketball. Guy has a ton of potential but until
  2. No, and in previous years they had been sent out 2-3 weeks prior to now. It's pretty telling. Very clear that that Nebraska has no intentions of hosting a postseason game.
  3. Yes, can't even imagine how much better we'd be with Morrow...assuming he stayed healthy which is a BIG "if". A big time piece we missed last year and most likely will miss again baring some unforeseen addition. Some of those games his sophomore year before his foot went bad again were incredible. I recall him just willing us to victory in @Indiana and looking like an absolute stud in November/December. He really looked like a potential all-conference type player at his best, and at his worst was still a solid starter. He had his holes for sure, but was trending up.
  4. Did we still pass up on the chance to hack Azubuike on the last possession and put the game in his hands on a 1-and-1?
  5. And yet...only 1 winning season in the TM tenure.
  6. Pretty damned impressive for a standing vertical reach. Add a bunch if he gets a step. What an athlete. Can we stop posting about Jacobsons supposed vertical? I don't care what they measured him at, the guy had major problems with completing a basic 2-hand dunk over his 2 years here. I know Boyd's tests had him inexplicably rated as our best athlete, but my eyeballs said he was about as chumpy as they come in comparison to his teammates when it came to live basketball action. This is what a real athlete looks like.
  7. I'd argue they had a great team this year before Watson got hurt. I hate these fuckers more than any of you, but they aren't in the valley any more. Their ceiling has been raised exponentially in the Big East.
  8. Poor guys don't even realize what they have coming.
  9. This guy looks like a stud. Very quick and active for a big guy. We would be very fortunate to add him.
  10. If he can get his feet right, Morrow is a guy who legitimately has the potential to be at an elite program, high level starter, consistent double double guy, with the occasional 20 and 10 type of game. This guy looked like an All Big Ten caliber guy for much of November and December. I have very little doubt that he is going to blow up at his next school and we are going really really regret that he got away. In Jacobson I see a guy that showed barely any improvement from freshman to sophomore, other than putting on some mass. In fact he regressed offensively. Yes
  11. Absolutely agree on Ed. Jacobson, no. He is a guy who is, IMO, a quality player at a Low Major or D-2 institution. Not even close to the realm of guys you can have playing major minutes on a legit Big Ten team let alone starting. If he would have been the first of the group to transfer I would have gotten a hearty laugh out of it, and would have been indifferent. At this point it's just frustrating because he can breathe, walk, and is 6-8.
  12. We are the only fanbase that can turn the news of a backup player transferring, into an argument about football.
  13. Be careful about suggesting the extrapolation of stats to 40 minutes, may get you in trouble with some folks around here! But yes his per/40 stats and percentages are pretty much worse across the board compared to last year. Fran said on the broadcast (paraphrasing, had it on in the background this morning when doing some stuff around the house so may not have caught all of it) that he thought D-League or overseas for White. Thought at best maybe he catches on with some type of 3-point specialist role on team, but lack of quickness and ball handling skills will hurt him.
