  1. None were very good—and I don’t know who they are.
  2. There were lots of basketball recruits on the sideline at last night’s football game: at least a half-dozen.
  3. Donovan Williams was at the game, yesterday—hanging out with the basketball team.
  4. Fred Hoiberg seems to disagree.
  5. The Hoiberg Effect at work! Pretty amazing.
  6. From the GhoperHole.com board moments ago: "These two teams look evenly matched. That might be a bad thing."
  7. Agree. This team should get better as the season progresses: the quality of the product on the court at the end of the season should be dramatically better than at the beginning, assuming reasonably good luck on injuries. That’s the direct-opposite from last year, because most of our best talent was returning.
  8. Hmmm . . . France’s population is about 67 million. Nebraska’s is about 2 million. Odds’ve gotta be on the Franks, right?
  9. Or, perhaps, the Wisconsin’s JV reference means that everyone on Latvia’s team looks like a cousin to Thorir Thorbjarnarson?
  10. Help me understand: a 12th rated Rivals kid and a B1G recruit on the same team are in a tight game against Wisconsin’s JV team? How can this be?
  11. Lots to like about Yvan in the Latvia video. He’s a tough and quick defender—can control his man, both down low and out front. He’s a load for defenders in the post with the ball in his hands—moves well to create an opening and still finds the open man with a good pass.
  12. What!? Wasn’t he a sure-fire NBAer?
  13. It’s a graduation issue, not a grades issue, according to this post by klrgumby on Red Sea Scrolls: He is a 4-2-4 juco rule guy so he has to graduate since he started out first at Stephen F Austin out of HS before transferring to his juco. Had he gone juco out of HS he’d have been cleared already.
  14. Agreed. The jump from Juco to major college basketball must be a big one. The most successful Jucos I’ve seen had their success in year two, after struggling in year one.
  15. Gotta love the “Palpable buzz” comment.
