    This.  There will be a ton of shots going up early in the shot clock this season simply because the defense won’t be fully set.  First, we’ll more rebounds and steals, and second, there won’t be many guys who need to hand the ball off.

    I simply love the idea of NOT having to get the ball to a specific player in order to initiate your offense.  Those wasted few seconds allows a defense to get into better position to defend.   

    With the players we have, any number of them can "run" the offense and also defend multiple types of players.

    Yeah, I think we'll be fine and score points regardless, which by itself is a huge sigh of relief for husker fans after the last few years. And we finally have some size, although its swiss army size (as fred likes to build his teams; he finally has the construction he likes[and I like]) and not 7 footers. The difference between being good and Great this year will hinge on how we attack in the half court and scheme teams... because I think most of the time we will have the fast break on lock down. damn, I cant wait to see that first teddy-delano-trey fast break!! 

  2. Super cool. This ticks a lot of stat dork boxes for me and combines with my gamer as well. I remember seeing a lot of things done like this in the past couple years in games like 2k and ncaa 14, amongst others. Love it. What else they gonna do? Unless you have your own hoop you arent getting basketball training done anyway, it's just some weight and cardio. 👍👍

    Speaking of the SEC (or the SIAA at the time), Georgia Tech managed to play football during the 1918 pandemic.



    Holy crap, that picture! At times in this nightmare year things feel deja vu to another era and another pandemic, and no more so illustrated than in this picture, it seems like it could be taken today if people were ballsy /stupid but also wearing masks completely, as if for a stunt (?) 😂

  4. I also think that the difficulty presented in basketball in keeping it safe indoors, and testing teams every day to keep teams from spreading it is critical. Have no doubt it could work but you have to be very disciplined, which I have little faith in America in that regard, lol. Unfortunate and I'll believe until we prove it's not possible... but you have to be tedious in your attention to detail and sterile environments, etc

    It's starting to become apparent that in terms of gathering that your risk for spreading Covid is greater inside than outside, which makes sense.

    Assuming a season happens, I think we'll find that Nebraska either limits or doesn't sell any tickets because selling them as usual is inviting people to congregate in an enclosed area which increases the potential for an outbreak.  Football with its outdoor seating seems like more of a possibility in terms of fan attendance in some form.

    Yeah, and even with outdoor I think it's becoming obvious that if we arent on a grand death pact, all sports in this cursed nation are likely going to either be cancelled (not likely here) or follow some European models like in Germany where there are no fans in stands, and more creative solutions for fan representation are explored. I dont mind empty stands if they can pump noise in and TV is still not a horrible experience; big soccer fan and it has worked out just fine (even if a bit depressing); I'm just curious if it's possible in football. Its definitely possible in basketball if soccer did it, and being inside I'm almost 100% sure fans isnt happening, that's just not safe esp with new news on how its aerosolized now  

    Have to be smart and I do trust our university, they're wise in most of these public health decisions

  6. This is amazing. I'm so humbled to witness the kindness of strangers and humanity when I see things like this. The testimony of that coach on the GoFundMe page is just so moving. Glad hes getting some support, because that... that is a horrific string of bad luck in his life. Makes one wonder why the worst sh** has to happen to the best people amongst humanity? The age old pondering. 


    Edit: updated total so far, 27k out of 30. I'm sure 30 is just a number they thought would help, so glad to see the love flowing in. Hope someone can do more than money for him too with all this crap that's hit him. The personalization of what 2020 has done to the human race, lol

    I am one of the few 24 year olds i know who doesn't have Twitter, fb, instagram, etc.


    Found myself wasting WAY TOO MUCH time on social media and, as you mentioned, it can be very toxic on there.


    I use snapchat and this board (yes you should feel special 😂) thats it. Other than that I talk to and see my family and friends regularly.

    great to hear from you. I like this philosophy / change in lifestyle. Social media honestly should be so much more limited in how much time it gets, people care so much and in reality, it's all stupid and not real public favor. with exceptions, of course. I enjoy NBA twitter, but it's very limited ofc. I think everyone I know quit using facebook a few years ago, although most of us still have accounts. It seems scary to cut off entirely, but I'll be doing that with facebook in the next couple days.

    I'm 28 for context. Always good to remind ourselves that even on this site we have a diversity of ages and generations represented. Love this forum, you made a good choice keeping us on the shortlist ;)

    If you want to lose all hope in the future of humanity, read twitter for a while.

    deleted the app and also prepping to delete my fb account here soon. Too much social media is INCREDIBLY toxic to our daily mental health. only now starting to realize how bad it is

  9. Great reaction by the boys. 


    Next year though, really need to intensively practice and workshop free throws. Honestly 50% sure whether or not it's a nebrasketball curse that's causing this, or just poor tradition or practice. I'm SURE they practice this, but how does anything explain how we're so terrible at the line???? #1 frustrating thing for husker fans(at least a decade in now) 

  10. I'm fkin tired of getting beat up by monster big men in this league. I love Fred's potential gameplan in future years of playing small ball sort of, but goddamnit the frustration of decades watching a team without a decent, baseline big man. We need the bodies to compete in this league. No blame on this coaching staff, itll take time, but it's just a rant on how annoying it is as a longtime fan. 😡 when will it end? Probably when we're attracting top athletes, which may be sooner than later

    Hey now easy on the gray hair stuff, you will be there some day. and yes it is an older crowd that goes to the womens games. just wish that they could get some students to the games. and grow that culture. I am a senior citizen even though i'm only 61.


    hey, a lot of the gray hairs are better than most! husker fans are fantastic as we know, and most of that is the levelheaded support we get from what kids now might call the "boomers" ;) I like how progressive some of them are too. and yeah im not dreading being old, I'm older enough already to not relate with the kids now, lol.

  12. Shoutout to the crowd today, and the forum here, great culture around our women's program. very positive vibes.

    Was my first EVER NU women's game I've been to (used my free womens ticket from the season ticket package). great experience! Senior day was special.


    Wish we hadnt slumped second half of the year, this team looked good. the no look passes! holy crap and they can shoot. (not that I came in with any expectations either way)


    cheers to everyone whos dedicated here, and the rest who come to the games. Love it. #Nebrasketball and huskers in all forms! I'll have to integrate more husker women's hoops in my diet going forward, no doubt.
