    2018-19 Husker opponents

    Just coming back to earth today, realizing there were other basketball games played yesterday ... and somehow I missed UW's Davison popping a Marquette player in the family jewels during game play and trying to pretend nothing happened. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/wisconsins-davison-earns-flagrant-1-for-punch-to-groin/ar-BBQGyjg Actually, Davison should've flown backward 10 feet after the contact ... maybe he could've drawn a charge from the MU player's junk.
  2. CU learning a hard lesson - when you pay your players like they're in the NBA, they're going to play defense like they're in the NBA.
  3. I'm so hungover this morning and do not care NU played so hard and so well Pitino is a jackwagon amateur - McDermott clearly has the butt-hurt jackwagon corner all to himself Ballock needs to go in Monday morning and demand a raise and a better job for his parents - without him that game is about 100-49

    Did Davison go flying backward about 10 feet when it happened?

  7. Great point on Allen's defense - that was an area of concern for me going into the season, but he's been nails.

    They look a lot better when they're hitting the 3 - when they aren't, they seem to look a little lost on offense. I like our chances to steal one on the road the way we're defending the 3. And if we can get Murphy in some foul trouble - he loves to go for ball fakes - I really like our chances.
  9. Having a veteran team and a few extra days to prep made a big difference on the defensive end. That 1-3-1 zone today was as good as it's been for that long of a stretch since probably last year at Penn St. With our foul trouble, having the zone work was important to force Illinois to burn clock on offense and to protect our guys. Plenty of chances to wilt today -- Roby has foul trouble and gets poked in the eye, Watson having to sit out for a lot of minutes, long scoring drought in the first half, freakin' Kipper Nichols hitting 2 threes and banking home another jumper -- but we just didn't wilt - that's where having so much experience is paying off. I know every analyst keeps questioning our bench, but those guys are playing solidly. None will be huge scorers this season - nor do they need to be - but they're making solid plays and there's not a huge drop off defensively when they enter the game. Great start to league play. Let's go 2-0 next week!

    Agree, thought it'd be -7 or -8, but Vegas also may be trying to adjust its metrics to catch up to what NU has been doing ATS - 5-1-1 this year, 23-5-1 over past 29 games.

    Crap. That means he'll be back for our game Jan. 6. We just can't catch a break on these suspensions.

    2018 B1G-ACC Challenge Schedule

    Could've been an ugly night for the B1G, but good comebacks by Iowa and Wisconsin Going to go out on a limb and say Duke holds on to even the series at 4-4. NU the only team to win on the road. 2018 B1G-ACC Challenge (all times Central) SERIES TIED 4-4 Nebraska 68, at Clemson 66 at Iowa 69, Pitt 68 at Wisconsin 79, NC State 75 at Penn St 63, Virginia Tech 62 at Boston College 68, Minnesota 56 at Louisville 82, Michigan St 78 (ot) at Duke A LOT, Indiana NOT ENOUGH at Notre Dame 76, Illinois 74 Wednesday, Nov. 28 6:15 pm – Syracuse at Ohio St (-5.5), ESPN2 6:15 pm – Rutgers at Miami (-11), ESPNU 6:30 pm – Virginia (-3.5) at Maryland, ESPN 8:15 pm – Purdue at Florida St (-4.5), ESPN2 8:15 pm – Georgia Tech at Northwestern (-7.5), ESPNU 8:30 pm – N Carolina at Michigan (-3), ESPN Vegas thinks it will end in a 7-7 tie; I'd prefer if the home teams keep winning to give the B1G an 8-6 edge.
