  1. Who? Miles or Ubel? And just relaying what I heard.
  2. Do not recall which postgame interview it was with Miles on the Husker Radio Network but the subject of the team being tired came up. And Miles said something that Brandon Ubel told him. Ubel said they are college kids they have plenty of energy. Or something along those lines.
  3. That would seem to solve the issue. I was watching the ISU/T-Tech the night before and same happened to Tech as they were trying to comeback.
  4. My issue with this was that there should've been a 5 second violation called. The basket was made with over a minute left but there was 50.9 seconds left when MSU called timeout. I looked up and saw that MSU player had grabbed the ball with at least 57 seconds. I realize there is delay for clock to stop but over 10 seconds was allowed to run off the clock. In the end it didn't make a difference. The poor shooting effort was the difference as many have already stated.

    Ebb and Flow

    I think a lot of it has to do with the "instant gratification" world we live in. With computers and especially smartphones we have access to news, sports, weather and whatever else you want right at your fingertips. And people expect similar results from their sports teams.
  6. My mood is much more upbeat than what I expected before the game. Refs were terrible and still got a road win.
  7. My son goes to college at UNK and has become friends with 3-4 kids from Colorado who saw and played against Jervay in high school. They all have the opinion that he is a stud and will be a very good player at Nebraska. Sure hope these kids are right.
  8. And as long as it took they could've called 2 fouls on Reaves all the while the ball was bouncing around.
  9. Agree and thought maybe Borchardt and maybe Heiman would get some minutes when Harrar or Buttrick came in the game. Watkins can be load inside.
  10. Also watching replay and agree we didn't play terrible. Sure it had something to do with players getting tired but 4 or 5 balls in 2nd half were right there for the taking but Huskers just couldn't quite get there. On one offensive rebound for PSU there are 3 NU players in good rebounding position but ball bounces just out of reach of 2 Huskers right to PSU guy. Miles said he wanted to put Borchardt in in the 2nd half but assistant coaches talked him out of it. Considering the poor rebounding Miles should've listened to himself. On a side note, we did end game on 8 to 3 run.
  11. Did refs know both teams had limited depth? That's how the game was called. The calls Palmer normally gets when he drives didn't get called tonight. And think Brian Rosenthal even tweeted about Watson taking a body check on a made lay-up and nothing was called. And most (7 of the 11) Huskers free throws came in last minute when PSU started sending NU to ft line. NU usually gets to the line with more frequency than what was given them last night. Worst call of the night was the reach foul on Amir. Ref was on opposite side of the floor and was blocked by players and the action and made call. Replay showed clean steal. Like others, wondering how starters will hold up with amount of minutes they are starting to play. Hopefully they figure out how to start rebounding. Got to go coachspeak and tak'em one game at a time from here on out.

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    A hard NO on a 2 time national championship coach? And don't recall Villanova being brought up in the FBI investigation. Not sure there is a coach that will meet your standards. And if you would've went through all replies I said why I brought those 2 coaches up.

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    I was just asking didn't mean to ruffle your feathers. Like I said, I'm hoping it doesn't come to that. So that is the conundrum Moos faces. Hire another smaller program coach and save money or go after a big name and offer lots of money? The reason I brought up Wright and Martin was because I was surprised at their salaries. And guessing behind the scenes there have been overtures made to Wright to take over other programs for a substantial raise since he has 2 championships to his credit. I'd just as soon concentrate on this season and this team with Miles coaching.

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    If Miles does get fired do you throw $3.5-4 million at Jay Wright (currently making $2.56 million at 'Nova) or Frank Martin (currently making $2.85 million at S. Carolina)? Would think with names like that the recruit loss would be minimal. Thought there were reports a year or two ago that Martin was possible candidate when Miles was on hot seat. Actually hoping this a moot point and Miles gets NU to the Big Dance and wins a couple.

    So, I finally joined twitter

    Lots of uniformed "experts". Make sure your neck muscles are loose and strong because you will spend lots of time reading those tweets shaking your head. Probably the same thing a lot, if not most of you do after reading my posts.
  16. Wouldn't be the same one that was laughing with Bohannon following a timeout soon after they called the charge on Allen?
  17. Glynn was the one I noticed with the poor body language late. And you nailed it on his 4th foul. Almost a I'd rather be on the bench than play right now.
  18. Is lack of depth already making this team tired? Wonder if that is why defense is lacking right now. Didn't like body language late in game by a couple players. Hopefully it was more of disappointment with the how things were going at that point. Frustrated that Huskers didn't attack the zone defense or the press. The high lobs breaking press back and forth were begging to get stolen at some point. And just like the zone offense how about a pass and cut. And I think Watson could've broken it down press with his dribble and created some lob/dish off chances. Time to pull up the boot straps and beat Penn St. If players were mad after Maryland loss they should be extremely P'O'ed after this showing.
  19. Heading out for supper. Bring us back.
  20. Anybody else think ft's will be important?
  21. Maryland also had chance to set up press out of time out.
  22. Losing rebound battle big time. They have more defensive than we have total. Of course Watson was up against Garza on one of them.
  23. Tough to make mid range shots when you don't take any.
  24. Anybody got a made shot chart? Seems like Iowa either made lay up or a 3...not anything farther than 4 foot out to 3 point line.
