    Huskerone got a reaction from Cazzie22 in Oleg Kojenets is N   
    Did I see right, he's only 215 lbs?  Hopefully while Andre and Walker continue to get the big minutes, "Nets" can hit Chipotle and the weight room for a year.
     
    Anyone know if he can make free throws? 🤔
     
    Looks like a great find, and a freshman to boot, hopefully he sticks around. Welcome to the Husker family "Nets"! 👍

    How many times have we asked ourselves... "where does Purdue find these goofy, awkward 7 footers who put up 20 on us?"
     
    Time for the tables to turn.  Welcome young man!

    Any truth to the rumor that he has a younger brother that is a 5*???

    Huskerone got a reaction from basketballjones in Would you play for Coach Hoiberg's Huskers?   
    I like this most recent recruiting class, and think of it as probably the first class Hoiberg and Co. has not had to rush, or take some chances on kids.  I think we'll see better classes from here on out.  I don't think we'll have to worry about high quality basketball players saying yes to coach H. 
     
    I'd show the Rutgers game as a great example to a recruit of how he wants the team to play.  Hard to say no to that style of play.  Oh, and I totally agree the NBA pedigree on this staff is an advantage for us.

    1. Who the hell else is going to be on my team from year to year? I plan on being here 3-4 years. This is my team, my family, the people I am going to spend the most time with. Is every year going to be like Freshman Orientation at the dorm? You say this like you feel this is exclusive to Nebraska. The turnover is everywhere. In fact, regardless of your plan to stay here for 3-4 years, odds are that you'd be transferring (or "shown the door") yourself. I suspect most of the kids in the transfer portal were planning on staying at their respective schools for the long haul. Plans change.
    2. Are you committed to developing me and letting me learn/grow? Or am I going to be shown the door after year 1-2 because I did not come in completely ready-made? Are you asking Coach if he's dedicated to being a coach? Really? And I suspect if Coach wanted you on his team enough to be recruiting you that he would tell you what you wanted to hear.  Coaches do this all the time, then turn out to be different people than they are when they're recruiting kids. Austin Reaves went to Wichita State, and once he got there he realized he absolutely HATED Coach Marshall.  You think Coach Marshall gave Austin the impression he was so hate-able sitting around the kitchen table or when Reaves was on an official visit?
    3. Will I be surrounded by high character guys? Or are you going to be brining a bunch of dudes in who have been shown the door at other places? Are you trying to determine the roster, or are you going to leave that up to the coach? Are you going to be calling sets and running practices as well?
    4. Am I going to be recruited-over every single year? I understand the job is to bring in the best players you can and build the best team you can. But I'm not feeling a lot of confidence when I notice you've contacted EVERY SINGLE KID IN THE TRANSFER PORTAL. Every coach (well, every coach who's worth a damn) is going to try to over-recruit his roster every year. To require your coach to not try to recruit a better player than you are is misguided at best.

    We just got a guy who is willing to come off the bench, can put up 20+ in a game, and is a free scholarship. 😎😎😎😎

    Huskerone got a reaction from HuskerFever in It Was Thirty Years Ago Today   
    Ah, the year I became a Nebrasketball fan.  My stepdad told me early that season he thought the basketball team might be pretty good this year.  First time I ever thought of following any team other than Husker football.  "You mean the Huskers play other sports than football?"  Then going to my first game, I remember walking into Devaney and seeing the court come into view as I walked through my section entrance, and seeing the crowd all around, hearing the band, the electricity in that building was real, it was packed, and I was hooked for life.  It was also my first frozen malt with the wooden spoon, still love those things.  After that Xavier game I thought we'd just be back every year, no big deal.  No idea 30 years later we'd still not have a tourney win.  I was naive, but also 10 years old.  The years since have brought probably more rough times than good, but they have made the good times even better.  👍

    Hoiberg hasn’t even been here 2 years yet.
     
    There is an elite recruiting class coming in (and he isn’t done).
     
    I don’t think <2 years and only 1 offseason is a lot of time.  
     
    Give him a sec.

    Huskerone got a reaction from Bugeaters1 in Coach McDermott   
    By no means am I a Creighton Blue Jay fan, and the suspension timing, and resignation offer can certainly be debated.  With that said, this cancel culture thing has gone off the rails.  He made a mistake, and has apologized.  Why not use it as a learning opportunity to grow and become better.  If done right, both he and his players can grow from this.  Isn't that what college is all about?  Maybe instead of offering to resign, have one on one meetings with his black players and ask them how the comment effected them, let them know what he's learned from it, and committing to continue to support them in their lives going forward.  Sounds like a better outcome to me than, "wrong" speak, you're fired!  My two cents for what they are worth anyway.

    Banton playing very "awkward" tonight.  Need to value the basketball.  Some clumsy AF turn overs in the first half.  With that said, Iowa is good.  Hard to defend the 3 out by the center court logo.

    Rightfully so. I hate how some of our guys absolutely don’t value the basketball. Banton hs at least 3 turnovers himself this half

    So, full disclosure, I haven't watched many Nebrasketball games this year from tip to final buzzer, usually turn it off at some point in the second half (its been some rough basketball this year, I ask for grace).  With that said, I watched all of this game and was floored at the passing, 19 assists!  We share the ball like that going forward and wow.  I'm hoping something "clicked" not only for this team, but program going forward.  Better late than never.  Fingers crossed.

    I actually thought we moved the ball pretty good to start the game.  Then it kind of went away.  Fatigue factored in I'm sure.  Like with football, not a year I'm getting too upset, with the pandemic I'm just happy all are healthy again.  I'm able to watch some live Husker sports which is a good reprieve from our real world problems right now.  Hope the GA mentioned above gets better soon, such a scary virus.

    Still behind Hoiberg to turn this around.  He had to start from scratch, at a program that hasn't had any sustained success since the 90's.  We have some pieces, they just aren't fitting together.  Hoiberg sees it too, he knows.  Trust the process.  Looking micro I can get pretty upset.  Choosing to look macro right now.  It wasn't that long ago I was at PBA cheering when we were picked for the dance.  It will happen again.
