  1. I agree. I know Fred and a Lotta coaches thrive in the portal, and I see it's inevitable, it's a part of the game and a certain chunk of your roster will be those guys. But Imo you HAVE to limit those as much as you can, and fill your roster with recruits and local kids who buy in, aren't mercenaries. The team didn't buy in for most if the year because people weren't here for the right reasons more or less, were here selfishly. Have to recruit the right guys, and like you said, PLEASE, recruit SIZE!
  2. Many issues with the team, adjustments to make, and a team attitude to change. We need to capture the last week minus tonight in a bottle! And for God's sake, somebody kick lat Mayen OFF THE TEAM! I can't handle another year of this schlub! I'm fine with anyone if they have effort. But can't have lazy guys in the 15. Time to recruit size and effort. Lot to like still amongst the weeds of crap this year.
  3. I would agree with that. I suppose you need full buy in, or they slip through for easy layups? Can't hold a team that passes well that way. Makes sense. Yeah 3 guys aren't even a starting lineup if you go with a sit to punish bad defensive effort strategy... More drastic coaching methods needed? Pull a Hoosiers? You have to earn your minutes? Pull in walk ons and you earn it back with effort? Who knows. I do know if I were in that locker room I'd be real depressed too.
  4. Huskers 69 Hoosiers 66 What the heck, why tf not. Super low on nebby. Nice meme score for ya
  5. Will say one bright spot inside has been walker. Poor guy is alone in there but he has the effort and makes some nice flashes at times
  6. I heard someone mention this on the radio - - gotta stress in practice defensive intensity, sometimes it's innate, but it can be a team identity, and needs to be essential in the program to have any success esp in this league. But the team ain't built like a big ten team, it's a smaller warriors roster space N pace. We need towers to not get murdered every night in the big ten. Long wings, I love that style, but you need 3 solid 6-10/7ft broad shouldered beasts to compete Imo Haven't had that. That'd help a ton in long term. But what bothers us this whole time as fans is the near zero effort. You can get 6 foot kids with heart and some hops OUT EFFORT the towers. Proves the point.
  7. The time of year to be in the dark pits of low confidence. Nebraska basketball. Husker "varsity" team : 56 Illinois fake Indian team: 97
  8. Yeah and especially at his length and size, it's inexcusable that he's a horrible defender. So many smaller players are much better defenders. It comes down to effort, but when you win the physical lottery? It's shameful to waste that. Maybe that's why people expect so much from him. Maybe he's just not cut out for basketball if he's not willing to sacrifice and effort his defense
  9. Spartans 78 Huskers 65 2 bench players scoring Gonna be a grind as usual, I like what I see but hate all the misery losing
  10. Kats - 77 Corn born - 67 Still some work to do but hope the new offense starts getting dudes to buy in and play like a team. Idk what I'm talking about. GBR
  11. Biggest show, sign in the stats that we played selfishly without even watching the tape, is the 6 assists to Michigan's 25. That's horrible. Shows the balls not moving... Also just comes with missing a lot of shots. Keep hockin' em up
  12. Embarrassed already at how many predictions I've missed already 9 games in. Ffs. Let's get em, would be a statement win if the huskers take this one, and I know we have the goods if we can just play the right way to hang with anybody this year (maybe not Purdue) "race to 69" Nebraska - 71 Auburn - 80 Edit: wow, usually the die Hard here pick NU regardless. I haven't seen ppl this low on NU in a while GBR
  13. I know so many fan bases over decades have gathered in anger to maybe try to do this, but isn't it worth trying to gather public cross fanbase support for something like a protest or signing a petition to the ncaa or referee authority to get Teddy cut out and banned from refereeing a basketball game ever again?? There are a handful of these worst offender referees who probably have seniority and a union to keep them working, but it's absolutely obscene and deplorable that guys like this get protection, it should be like other jobs where if you suck at your job, you get fired. They probably top the list of strongest unions in the nation along with cops, which this reminded me of. But I won't go down that road. It's gross and messed up.
  14. Holy crap what a basketball game. I missed most of this one to sleep... I'll let the poor souls who watched three hours only to get Ted valentined take this one away. Really disappointing but proud. Holy shit Bryce verge and tominaga (at this point so far in year) are scoring BEASTS. Lotta fun to watch. I'm not concerned for our future with these guys. Love this team. Work to do but I'm confident.
  15. The guy is infamous as one of those Refs who like to get their fame on TV as the star of the show, right? Disgusting. There's a reason people know his name
  16. Wish I hadn't woken up late for this one. Caught the last few OTs. Amazing he we stayed in this and lost that lead, man. Teddy plays with a suspicious whistle and a tight one, we all know and hate it. This was definitely home cooking and a bad officiated game, although we still self imploded. Half of that's not on us. But still the grand irony in only shooting like 11 FTs at still having a couple FTs miss that could've won the game. Ugh. Deep pain. Still super proud of the boys, hope they know that. Rough one. Lots of stuff for fred from this one to teach , hope he uses it.
  17. Uh oh, south Dakota is a step up in competition, up to #190 or so... /s Neb - 80 SD - 72
  18. Only caught the 2nd half tonight. Beautiful November night and Friday. It was nice to see families and kids out enjoying it. Notes: - missed a lot of his action, but Bryce only scoring 6 isn't as big an issue as it seems. Somebody mentioned in the game thread that he might not like scoring less than 20, but it was an efficient night with 7 rebounds to lead the team (I believe ) . I think he ended 3 - for - 6 so that's 50%, nbd. - verge making progress trying to be a point guard proper. Still has bad habits from his normal play style from Arizona, but bad habits die hard. If Fred gets the guys playing right and quick passing, we can explode on offense. I see this problem originating from our pg position as the main reason for the woes early season and two painful losses. - good to see Andre get some time. Still don't love his effort, which might be revealing some of the reasons he's not earning favor with Fred yet. Who knows. I'm sure he'll rotate in more later on. - everyone loves breidenbach and keisei, myself included! Lots of fun dudes in this second unit. - saw Trevor lakes get in, he doesn't look smooth. He's a big body on the perimeter though, so I'm sure he will find some development and minor minutes this year at times. - big fan of Keon and CJ. I like their size and shooting potential. Supposedly they can shoot? Have to overcome the husker curse of every good shooter coming here to post career low %s. Smh. I beleive, hope we can change this curse. Idk what's going on for the last decade plus with this phenomenon. Overall good to see a win like this, routine. Need wins for confidence just like every young team does, and like our football team desperately does.
  19. The hustle and effort definitely leaves much to be desired... Early season but is concerning.
  20. Omfg after leading for most of the game on reb, and still to tie with Idaho st? Ugh bad feeling rn. Still can't complain. Go get southern on Sunday.
  21. Maybe I'm seeing the holes in Dre's game--- he's raw. Maybe some work rate and effort to be desired too. Maybe Fred wants to see more of thay before he earns time. I think us fans are just hungry for an inside presence so it's hard to not see him logging minutes esp early. This team will look different in a month or two for sure.
