    2018-19 Husker opponents

    If it’s just them. It won’t hurt much. If we play 3-4 others like them. Then it adds up. We aren’t the only team playing teams like that

    Just win. Our schedule will be fine provided we take care of a business a reasonable amount in our premier opportunities.

    What type of kid should we recruit?

    Hype train is out of control

    Jordy Gone

    Potential? Yes. Heimann's is higher. Does he reach it this year though? Athletic Ability? Depends. Is Heimann quicker and more agile? Likely. Does he have the functional athletic ability to do what we need him to do now? Up for debate. Ball Handling? Again..up for debate. Sure, Heimann might be able to dribble better. But being strong with the ball is also a measure of ball handling. Borchardt would have an advantage here. And how much ball handling does either do? This is pretty negligible considering what each of their roles would be.

    Morrow leaving

    Think its fair to say again now that it'd be nice to have Morrow now.

    Jordy Gone

    Borchardt was just as effective as Jordy at times. He's not skilled. In that, you are right. But unlike Jordy, he knew and embraced his role more. I'd have hardly called Jordy a NY strip. More like an uncooked sirloin.

    Jordy Gone

    As far as signing a big. We didn't need a world beater. Or a difference maker. Jordy wasn't either of those. We needed a warm body for spot duty. It's not like we needed to reach for the stars/moon. We still do.

    Jordy Gone

    The positive side is this removes the temptation to play Jordy. You're right in that it does bog down the middle. The issue it creates is depth issues. Once again the reason we should've been going after a big transfer

    Gebbia isn't a statue, but he doesn't move as well as Smith

    Jordy Gone

    Cant say Im surprised. It's exactly why I harped on recruiting a JUCO/grad transfer big all spring. It is/was absolutely stupid to sit on that last scholarship. Especially while we were in flux on Roby and Copeland.

    Morrow leaving

    Pretty much. A lot easier to accept roles when you are winning.

    Morrow leaving

    I still don’t buy that line. Hell be a post. A 4 or 5. He just didn’t want to play the post on a losing team

    Morrow leaving

    Don't think it'd be a given he'd come off the bench. Roby could easily play the 3 as well with Palmer at the two.

    Watson article from Lee

    KPI Ratings. The seeding order was very similar to their ratings after filtering out the teams that made the NCAA

    Watson article from Lee

    I don't think he assumed that role. I think he was trying to balance both and that's what caused the issues.

    Watson article from Lee

    It's fun to entertain that thought, but the NIT seeds too closely mimicked another rating system to believe it was intentional. It was just ineptitude in not looking at anything else.

    What do you think the NBA Scouts told ...

    That and he wont be playing with his back to the basket much in the NBA.

    Successful Season

    Dont' think we will win 26 games or anything like 90-91 but we dont necessarily need too. Id say to define it as a success....NCAA. Anything less is a miserable failure and we should be coach shopping. Any type of win in the NCAA, makes this our greatest season ever....that's always a hard bottom line to have but its hard not to have that as the definition of a successful season right now

    Bigger impact in 18-19?

    He struggled finding time on his prep team. I think people are being patient in that sense since his competition level steps up even further this year.

    18-19 depth

    I think we have two very capable 4-men. We maybe have one capable 5. I think that's where we need the depth and McVeigh isn't capable of helping there. He's a stretch 4 at best. And that's assuming he's better than Heimann. I'd agree on the defined positions to a point. At some point you just need body types. Is McVeigh a more skilled player than Borchardt? Certainly. Is it enough to overlook his physical shortcomings in playing a role outside his normal position(s)? IMO, no. Long story short....not sure he's a good enough shooter to warrant the lack of physicality at the 5.

    Bigger impact in 18-19?

    Harris due to his versatility. If we can truly play the point....it allows you to get creative with Watson and Allen off the ball.

    18-19 depth

    Of course..if they all bust. But I don't think it's likely that we go 0-4 (even 5 with Davis). And yes we're thin up front...but moreso at the 5. That's where we need the help the most and he wasn't going to help a lot there. Borchardt would've got more time there than him. Case in point, if McVeigh was playing serious minutes for us this year....something went wrong.

    18-19 depth

    Won’t miss Jack at all. With all 3 coming back, any potential role he had has evaporated also not worried too much about the two. Gill and Taylor were nice surprises and solid players last year. But let’s not make them into all conference guys. Between Amir, Thor, Thomas, Nana and even Palmer due to the flexibility of Roby and Copeland, I’m not worried at all about those minutes the spot that I am concerned about is dubys spot. Not that we can’t replace him but that we need someone better to push Jordy in the post I have no doubt Roby still starts, but until Jordy elevates his game AND proves he can stay on the floor for extended minutes without foul trouble, we need another capable post

    Schedule

    Wouldn’t count on it last year was pretty fluky in a number of areas.
