  1. Joe Toussaint PG from Iowa enters the portal
  2. Beyond the expected staff and roster changes, it will be interesting to see how Fred schedules for next season. We're obviously locked into Creighton and Kansas State plus the ACC challenge. On second thought, Auburn was the only other tough game scheduled in the non-conference this year, so it won't look much different in terms of the ability to compile meaningless wins. I've just made myself more depressed!
  3. Having a 4OT game helps to skew the per game stats this early in the season, especially when it is a game where both teams missed a lot of shots...that's an extra half-game of play without impacting the denominator.
  4. I'm only listening to the radio call because I don't have ESPNU, but from the sounds of it the game has been very physical. Seems like the blame for the fight could be placed squarely on the refs. If they had the game under control, maybe it wouldn't have happened.
  5. So does Oleg lose his redshirt for getting tossed out of a game he didn't play?
  6. And yet, there were probably some Jayskers there that responded "yeah, we enjoyed that win".
  7. Yeah, between Robin Washut's question to Fred in the post-game press conference and today's follow-up question and answer, I'm hopeful we'll see progress from their film review and opportunities for growth. I probably made some gut reaction assumptions based on what I've seen on Husker teams in the past and automatically applied them to Verge when it very well could just be an awareness/instinct issue that need to be trained/retrained rather than an attitude issue that needs to be overcome. I guess I could learn some of that too.
  8. Eduardo with 6 points, 5 rebounds and 1 block in 8 minutes of action. I think he is earning himself more time.
  9. Our shooters (guards) are currently 3-8 from the line (include 3 front end misses?) while our big men are 4-5
  10. Similar to that Texas/ NU game....I was at the Texas Tech/NU game where LeKevin Smith intercepted the ball to seal the win if he had only gone down, but instead ran with it and fumbled the ball back to the Red Raiders.
  11. I'm 100% with you on that...wish I could "like" your statement 100 more times.
  12. Yeah, I had the sense that some players are thinking the games/stats are real now, so I need to get mine to make it to the NBA. With what Fred is selling I could see him potentially attracting the guys just want to use him to get them where they want to go and have no concern for the success of the Nebraska basketball team. In fact, they may see our historical issues as providing them an enhanced opportunity to achieve that outcome. If the issue persists at PG, Fred needs to act more quickly than he did last year with Teddy.
  13. Exactly. Ultimately, it will be what Fred allows. The two main guys playing 1-on-1 vs team ball got 35 and 39 minutes on the court. Would that have been different if Kobe was available? Why didn't Keon get more time? While Verge may have gotten 13 rebounds, I wonder how many offensive rebounds he allowed by not putting a body on his guy, which allowed him to crash. Of course, I don't think that concern is isolated to just Verge, but he's the one I specifically noted in a photo or video replay. I also wonder how the rebounding issue might be different with Andre on the court. At some point, Fred may need to decide he has to give up a little offensively, to correct the defensive issues. Of course, Lat's absence on that end may have been more important that I had expected from a length and athleticism standpoint.
