  1. The T fouled him out. You go shoot the T and then the second free throw is shot with the lane cleared. Made or missed dead ball after the shot and your disqualified player goes to the bench. Made FT goes to the defensive team and I believe on a miss you go to the possession arrow. Regardless, there are rules in place for such an occurrence. The biggest culprit in this situation was the guys at the scorers table that are supposed to keep track of that stuff.
  2. How many dudes 6’7 or taller with long arms do we face in any year that are playing guard? Or wing for that matter.
  3. No. Lots can be done defensively based on yesterday’s game. We gave straight line drive after straight line drive to the basket with help arriving late or not at all. That’s a mental break down and should be fixable IF the players want to work hard. And I lost track of the “and ones” we gave up that were silly stick the hand in weakly, not stopping a shot ever, foul or concede, make up your mind, type of fouls. I could go on but even the rebounding can be greatly improved with more physical but mostly mental effort.

  5. They switched from jumping or what he called blitzing ball screens. They were getting hurt by slips so they went to playing ball screens flat with Cam sort of in permanent help.
  6. I believe the rule is he gets to shoot his free throw and then goes to the bench.
  7. We cleared the lane for Mack's free throws and when he made the first he instinctively reached out for fives but no one was there so he extended a hand to a WSU player. He was embarrassed and trying to cover. Not a T. Fred didn't think so either.
  8. I don’t like picking on posters but he’s already played and been successful for 4 years at D1.
  9. My favorite was the guy next to me replaced Ghost Busters with Go Huskers in the winning song tonight.
  10. Nebraska managers beat Wichita State mangers. First win of Hoiberg era.
  11. There's coach speak and then there's coaches being themselves. Izzo doesn't write a forward for just anybody that asks. He and many in the coaching community sincerely held Miles in high regard. That obviously doesn't always equate to success.
  12. Who are we dismissing? I believe they were called "The Big Five" for a reason all year.
  13. Yvan on Copeland? Cope scores as many as he wants on that matchup. Last year’s team vs this year’s team at this time of the year? I don’t see that as close at all. Call me a pessimist or a realist but my expectations for the year are not high. Maybe watching OSU play football has left me with a Husker hangover but we simply don’t have the Big 10 bodies. Our perimeter players were attacking the basket against almost no defense and had no one to meet them at the rim except our undersized bunch. Like always we have the ability to steal one here or there (mostly here) but if we have a
  14. I haven't received mine either. Let me know if you hear anything.
  15. Personally, I thought his end of game management was lacking but all in all a good coach of the fundamentals, X's & O's, and inspiring (threatening at times?) athletes to play with great effort. In today's game though recruiting is an indispensable skill needed to be a head coach at a high level. His inability to bring in players that were equal in ability to most conference opponents was his downfall. You can excel in one part of your job but still have weaknesses in other areas. Hoiberg got fired from his last coaching job. There will be a honeymoon but if he isn't successful
  16. Kavas and Cheatham, besides the skill sets they bring, are the two grad transfers. Grad transfers don't come to schools they think there is any possibility they sit the bench. So you are only going to bring in people you know will play for you and if it's close you give them the start. If that doesn't happen then you are going to have a more difficult time bringing in any more grad transfers in the future.
  17. Part of that had to do with he played the garbage minutes with the walk ons at the end of the game.
  18. The thing that jumped out to me the most is, even though I'm thrilled that Doc is back in town, he should never again wear an untucked white polo with shorts out in public. At this point in his life and for many of the rest of us, that is not a look he can pull off any more.

  20. I've seen the Thunderbirds live. They put on a good show. Jimmie Lee wasn't as good as Stevie but he was pretty good.
  21. My college coach measured us in our bare feet. That never made sense to me since I've never played a game of basketball in just my socks.
