  1. As already said, great effort, especially considering how things started in the first few minutes and how short the bench was. Hopefully, they're starting to get it regarding how hard you have to play to have any shot of success at this level. Multiple steps forward tonight, even though they didn't get the W.
  2. You may be on to something. Let's see if this works.
  3. Went about how I expected it to go. Our guys were not ready for that level of intensity and atmosphere. Hope they learned something that will benefit down the road, although I can't imagine the next 2 will go any better. Hopefully we take a couple of baby steps in those games, because there weren't any today. At least there's a little hope Friday. After all, Assembly Hall is our PBA East.
  4. NU opens as an 11.5 pt dog. If we cover that, I'm going to feel pretty good.
  5. Davison looks like a serial killer in that photo ... or like he wishes he hadn't binged on downtown Amigos one last time before it closes next week. By the way, B1G games actually start tomorrow. 11 am - PSU at OSU (BTN) 3:30 pm - Indiana at WIsc (BTN) 4 pm - Illinois at Maryland (ESPN2) EDIT: I stand corrected: B1G game #1 going right now - Iowa at Michigan on FS1
  6. Doc & Fred and quite a few current NU players were spotted at Pius as well last night - not sure if they were there for the ending though.
  7. I think it's mostly that we appear to have zero shot. If we keep it to within single digits, that would be a major accomplishment. Most years, I can convince myself if X-Y-Z happen, we can win, so there's a reason to break down the game. Not this year. Hopefully I'm surprised Saturday - but I think it'd have to be a similar level of surprise to where Publisher's Clearinghouse is standing on my doorstep with a giant check, next to Kate Upton wearing nothing but a bow. With this team, it's not going to be about wins. It's going to be about taking baby steps and hopefully playing better in Jan than Dec and Feb than Jan. Rebounding better in the 1st half vs Ga Tech was a nice baby step, for example. I don't expect baby steps Saturday. Walking into that @#[email protected]@#$ hole Saturday with 12K drunks rooting against them (as they mindlessly clap to NU's fight song before catching themselves) is a significant problem, especially for our team that has little to no experience with D-1 road environments. It simply will not go well. Hopefully they learn something they can use in B1G play later in the season.
  8. B1G wins 8-6 Scores at Minnesota 78, Clemson 60 Northwestern 82, at Boston College 64 Iowa 68, at Syracuse 54 at Indiana 80, Florida St 64 at Purdue 69, Virginia 40 at Maryland 72, Notre Dame 51 at Penn St 76, Wake Forest 54 Ohio St 74, at North Carolina 49 Miami 81, at Illinois 79 at Louisville 58, Michigan 43 at Pitt 71, Rutgers 60 Duke 87, at Michigan St 75 at Georgia Tech 73, Nebraska 56 at NC State 69, Wisconsin 54 ACC leads all-time 12-6-3 But B1G is 4-2-3 since NU joined the league ... you're welcome, Big Ten
  9. I think I need to get on the Kaleb Wesson diet. If Bucknuts can hold on over final 9 minutes, B1G will win it. Otherwise it's a tie.
  10. Series tied, 4 - 4 - home teams are 4-4 so far & only 1 of the 8 games has been decided by single digits. Clearly, all of these stats point to an NU blowout win in Atlanta Wednesday. Monday & Tuesday scores at Minnesota 78, Clemson 60 Northwestern 82, at Boston College 64 Iowa 68, at Syracuse 54 at Indiana 80, Florida St 64 Miami 81, at Illinois 79 at Louisville 58, Michigan 43 at Pitt 71, Rutgers 60 Duke 87, at Michigan St 75 Wednesday, Dec. 4 **6:15 pm – Nebraska at Georgia Tech, ESPNU 6:15 pm – Virginia at Purdue, ESPN2 6:30 pm – Notre Dame at Maryland, ESPN 8:15 pm – Wake Forest at Penn St, ESPNU 8:15 pm – Wisconsin at NC State, ESPN2 8:30 pm – Ohio St at North Carolina, ESPN
  11. Wednesday point spreads Nebraska at Georgia Tech (-9) Virginia at Purdue (-3 1/2) Notre Dame at Maryland (-9) Wake Forest at Penn St (-11 1/2) Wisconsin at NC State (-5) Ohio St at North Carolina (-2 1/2)
