  1. That's part of the multiple, multiple uniforms that Oregon uses. If the logo on the helmet in black and white were all that was on a t-shirt, I don't think most people nationwide would be able to identify it as being from Oregon University. The O is what is nationally recognized by the masses, beyond series college football fans. When you have Micheal Knight as an alumni then you can spend money on things like the duck without worrying about the profit margin. It's a way to sell the brand to younger athletes. Nebraska doesn't have that luxury and my guess is that Adidas doesn't see Herbie/basketball as a money maker. Though I haven't spent any time or money on market research so I admit maybe I'm misjudging Herbie.
  2. Personally, I don't have any strong feelings about the Herbie basketball logo one way or the other. This might not be popular with some of the old school basketball fans on the board that have strong feelings for the logo but it doesn't scream "youth." Athletes don't chose Oregon strictly for the multiple Nike uniforms but it certainly doesn't hurt. I could be wrong, but I don't see that logo being attractive to the athletes we want to attract or having a large appeal nationally to an adult audience either. It's nostalgic, I get that and but I don't see it spreading Nebraska's national brand or leading to much larger profits for Adidas.
  3. You may be joking but I feel that will play no part in Roby’s decision. Every time you play basketball there is some chance of some injury. Roby has played hundreds if not thousands of hours of basketball. When you’re young you are invincible and the idea of injury just doesn’t exist. Now it may play a part in the parents’ or agent’s feedback which he may take into account. Zion came back to play and I would think at least 95% of college athletes would do the same. Now “meaningless” bowl games don’t seem to carry much weight with players.
  4. I can never tell when people are being sarcastic on here. If you call anything less than the equivalent of his college career as a bust in the NBA then Laettner was a bust. But to equal his college career be would have to have been one of the top 5 all-time great NBA players. He was an all-star one season and had a solid NBA career. Not what they hoped when he was drafted but not a bust.
  5. Yes, that is what I said. Right up there It's the one just above yours.
  6. I think you are right in the big picture. We are in the honeymoon stage and everything that Fred does right now is great. And I will readily admit that pretty much everything that has happened since he got here has been great. And maybe Miles first couple of years all of these recruits would have been well received. After six years there is always the group that wants to start over and for that group pretty much anything Miles did would be a bad thing. So I think it is more certain people's patience had run out and I understand that. I also think that there are several people who don't understand that they are doing that and contradict themselves without ever noticing. I listened to Sip evaluate the new squad and he said he also wants to wait to see the on the floor product. His examples were the unknowns. "What if Jervay isn't all that he is built up to be? What if Cam won't play and defense?" That sort of thing. Thrilled to death with the directions things are going, but I'm going to wait until the end to make a final judgment. You can drive all the way to California and find out Wally World is closed ya know.
  7. I liked the fact that his highlights show that he has all the new-school moves and shots but after every bucket, he went old-school and just ran back on defense. The expression on his face didn't change no matter how deep or how crazy the shot.
  8. I'm still at an incomplete. If by any chance Roby comes back then I see the roster as an A+. Still worried about the interior. Maybe they will be great and maybe not - they are awfully young. You don't get your final grade in a class until it is over, so I'm waiting to see the end product on the court. I'm am thrilled to death with what Hoiberg has gotten done at this point. I'm too easily annoyed so I'm annoyed by some people gushing on the last couple of signings who I know would have been, "Why is Miles bringing in these three-star players. We need to upgrade the talent." Regardless, things are looking up for Nebraska Basketball.
  9. You may have some points on his form but his horrible shot selection for Iceland isn't all on him. If you watched them play they all had a horrible shot selection. It had to be coming from the bench since everyone on the team was in on it. btw - substitution rotation also made no sense.
  10. I know I read he had 2 1/2 years left, eligible at the end of the coming fall semester and in all likelihood would get a waiver and get three years. I’m not looking for it right because I’m going to bed.
  11. “We are excited to have Kevin join our program. He is a skilled big who brings versatility to our front court with his ability to score both inside and out. We think he is a player who will develop in our up-tempo system.” - Coach Fred Hoiberg Kevin Cross from Little Rock, Arkansas has signed his National Letter-of-Intent to play basketball for Nebraska. Cross first popped up on our radar on April 25th as a recruit who would be taking an official visit. Little was known about Cross at the time as he had no available recruiting profiles. It turns out Cross had blossomed from a 6'6" 215 lb high school junior into a 6'8" 240 lb senior and that Doc Sadler and his Arkansas connections made him one of the few people in Div 1 to notice. Cross had previously been offered by Sadler at Southern Miss and ultimately it was that prior relationship that led Cross to choose Nebraska over Oklahoma St and TCU. When Cross signed Nebraska had 1 available scholarship left for 2019-20. You can check out our scholarship matrix here. View full article

  13. If he wants to come back they would clear the space as needed. Don’t think that will be a problem though.
  14. I was just typing that myself. Thank you for cleaning that up.
