  1. OK I will but I am still at “How do you know theses things?”
  2. I'm not questioning you, I'm am just curious why you would feel you know better what happened in the conversation he had with the coach then he does?
  3. That was a "One on One" reference. Robbie Benson can now go play anywhere in the country that he wants.
  4. So all three could tell Fred "all the way with a red hot poker" and he couldn't take their scholarships?
  5. I agree with you but we aren’t talking about eggs here. These are 18 and 19 year olds. If this went down worst case scenario then they deserved better then that. So my concern is how this went/goes down not that it went down. We really have no final word on any of this and maybe we got the bad info. This is a new program and there are going to be needed changes but I hope we don’t forget that the product they are working with are young men.
  6. That was my point. Over half of all NBA teams make the playoffs. So that number would include some pretty bad teams. There is NO ONE RIGHT WAY to play the game. Basketball is a science but it is also an art. There are lots of tools that can help you achieve your goals including analytics and the use of the 3 point shot. As teams win in different ways there will be lots of copycats. If you have an efficient method and the players that fit that system then you can be successful no matter what system you are using.
  7. The top NBA teams in terms of percentage of all shots taken being three-pointers last year were as follows: #3 Milwaukee did have the best record in the East and Golden State at #8 did win the title but the Mavericks and the Hawks sucked. And during the Showtime era, everyone tried to push the ball. Everyone copies a winner. When teams didn't have Magic Johnson on their team they weren't as successful at that game as the Lakers. When you don't have Curry, Thompson, and Durant on your team you aren't going to be as successful at that game either. If that's all it took then the Rockets
  8. I'm aware of that, but that's assuming you make every three and two point basket. It's worth 0% of 2pt baskets if you don't make that three was my point.
  9. Shooting 40% from three is a big ask. If I found the right page there was only 5 Division I teams that did that last year. Three-point shooting is not 50% more efficient if you don't shoot a high enough percentage from behind the line. You can crunch all the analytics you want but if you don't have enough players who can shoot the ball at a high rate consistently, the three starts to become a very inefficient shot very quickly. To be successful in today's game you have to shoot the three but if you want to win consistently that way you need to shoot consistently. I may be old school but I pref
  10. https://www.omaha.com/huskers/blogs/two-graduate-transfers-and-a-commit-headline-nebraska-basketball-s/article_ced8194a-8d64-5953-a775-fa9ebebfa06c.html
  11. You do realize that is an incredibly middle school response, yes?
  12. I couldn’t decide between: 1) The KearneyMan doth protest too much, methinks. or 2) Are you really a junior high kid? Because you sound like and your logic seems like it comes from someone about 13. Because three exclamation points is definitely something a 13 year old would do.
  13. Only coaches can see that so we will have to wait for some sort of twitter announcement .
  14. I re-read it and it appears you disagree but I couldn't find one thing political in anything Korver said. So I don't know how to respond to that. I just posted it because I'm not a Creighton fan and Creighton takes a lot of heat on a Nebraska board as it should, here was something good done by someone who went to Creighton.
  15. I know he’s from Creighton but... https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/kyle-korver-utah-jazz-nba
  16. You actually have to graduate to be a grad transfer. He will not have enough hours to do so at the end of this year. That is what I have been told. I have not seen his transcripts.
  17. The video is an ad for the machine. It talks about the shot in very vague terms that your junior high basketball coach should know. I've seen practices conducted by every coach we have had back to Nee and have attended several of their coaching clinics. Every one of them broke down and taught the jump shot in greater detail than what was shown in that video and I'm positive the Hoiberg will as well when he holds practices. Every coach has strengths and weaknesses but I don't think you can get to a D-1 coaching job, even at a school devoid of tradition without taking the coaching of fundamental
  18. Share an opinion, please. And in all honesty, your NIT statement was written in such a vague manner that I couldn't even tell whether you were talking about Miles or Allen. So it was an actual question not a slam on your opinion. I admit I might be the obtuse one concerning that particular topic. But you are talking about hypotheticals as if they were fact. And maybe you did and do have inside information. I take the basketball department's word when they say he wasn't healthy enough to play. I do know high ankle sprains can take longer than broken bones to heal. And the "somethi
  19. Which would have had nothing to do with him staying or going. He liked Miles and Nebraska and would have played if healthy. If you watched him on the bench he was being a great teammate.
  20. Moral to the story. 14 is too young to declare someone the greatest anything.
  21. I'm not understanding you. "If not he woulda been back for the NIT." If "he" is Allen then was at the NIT. If "he" is Tim Miles I know he was back for the NIT. And unless you have a time machine saying that Tom was gone either way is hypothetical and unknowable for certain. I'm sure this will really break you up but if that's how you talk about people you liked and still like, then maybe we just shouldn't get to know each other.
  22. Way back of his mind. Everyone in their early 20's is immortal and indestructible. I know I thought I was at that age. He is a world-class athlete. You might think of it but you never really think it could happen to you. I don't think it will play any part in his decision,
