  1. That’s what I heard but not sure of it. That would be cool.
  2. I’m a season ticket holder so I was at every home game and watched the Huskers shooting threes in warmups and the best pure shooter on the team is Costello. I’ve seen him hit ten or more “nothing but net” three’s in a row during warmups. So so if Hoiberg truely lives three point shooters he may play Costello some in this transition year.
  3. I fondly remember Lantz, Baach, Branch, Campbell and Simmons. Simmons started for the Denver Nuggets ABA team when I was going to college at University of Denver. solid ball player.
  4. Unless he got a scholarship it may be financially foolish to stick around.
  5. Does Trueblood have a year of eligibility left? During warmups in the last two home games I watched Costello shoot and several times he hit over ten threes in a row nothing but net...why he didn’t play really baffled me.
  6. Been a loyal Husker basketball, football and baseball fan since 1958 when I was 8 years old. However basketball has been the most challenging allegiance due to the chronic failure to thrive. Went to University of Denver 1968 as a D1 baseball player after declining a UNL offer, which in those days was full tuition, etc. I remember me and my fellow Nebraska buddies driving into eastern Colorado from Denver in 1972 through 1975 in order to get the KFAB signal to listen to the NU game while drinking a few beers. I remember the Cipriano and Iba and Collier and Sadler years. I was at the NU upset of #1 Michigan when we had Fred Hare as our offensive star. i remember so many things but I am simply THRILLED that Fred Hoiberg is our coach. I told my boys that st age 69 I had come to the realization that I may not see a NCAA tournament victory before I die. Now I’m betting I will see that win! My wife and I are season ticket holders and we can’t wait for next season.
  7. I am thrilled beyond imagination with Fred Hoiberg becoming the Husker basketball coach. I scoured the web for articles about his playing and coaching history. You can imagine my alarm when I read that his NBA career was ended by open heart surgery in 2014. He had a heart valve replaced and all is well now as the problem while very serious was simply a defective valve and was not stress related or life style related. I’m one happy camper. Let the journey begin!
  8. Roby has weak hands or bad hands and needs to put on ten pounds of muscle. Weights can help him in both areas. Also his passing is very sloppy and that is correctable. Another year with an NBA coach would serve him well.
  9. Where else could Hoiberg go and simply win one NCAA tournament game and become a legend?
  10. Our Lakehouse south of Columbus is dry as far as we know. Can’t get there. All I can say is “knock on wood” and we will volunteer to help others who need help.
  11. I did mention that our legs may not be up to the challenge but ignoring that variable I like the matchup all things considered.
  12. When Wisconsin came into the PBA and beat us by around ten points my memory of the game and a review of the stats of the game gave me the sense that we can win this game. We shot 17 for 60, which even by our standards should not happen again. On 3’s we shot 4 for 20, which even by our standards should not happen again. And Copeland was already injured and Borchard fouled out after playing only 15 minutes. So I’m thinking if we shoot even 35% overall and 30% from 3 and Borchard gives us 25 minutes or so we might be right in this game. My concern is that our legs will be worn out and we may not shoot very well because of that but I would not be com-pletely surprised if we pull the upset.
  13. What about DeVreis at Drake? In his first year he has beaten numerous teams that grant scholarships at a non-scholarship school...New Mexico State, Boise State, North Dakota State, Northern Illinois, etc. He was a long time assistant with McDermott at Creighton and his teams score a lot of points.
  14. I kind of like Thor’s game but when I saw him shot free throws I almost puled! Both were bricks and both came off the frickin palm of his hand! No fingertips at all! Unbelievable! Later Harris shot two brick free throws that had zero chance of going in! Hard to watch at the D1 level..,,
