  1. wow. really interesting. fun thought experiment. shows we do have the horses to compete, at least. no excuses. Just wanna see them enjoy their basketball and score. Really looking  forward to this season :)

  2. This is all so encouraging. People getting on or re upping once again or the millionth time... All here for the same thing! Family. Love the husker family.

    Knock on wood ofc that old nasty uncle covid doesn't bite us this season again. Things not looking promising. Hope to get another booster or something in the coming months against delta, I think we all want, need our sports and other people. Lives are more important ofc, but goddamnit,  it's painful missing year after year of this. Need my nebraska🏀❤️GBR

  3. I mean during the SY process the last few years my ideal aim would be to get a move from where I am in 300 down to the sweet spot 200 level. That's all I'd need for the rest of my days, I love that view. Been down in the lower bowl a few times ofc so there's always better seats, but I'm happy if I ever get the upgrade to 200. Anyone wanting to swap I'd be interested as well. Idk. If not I'm happy to let be. Having tickets period is valuable, we all know in a few years it'll be higher demand. Gbr

    I’m not until Thursday.  Ughhhh

    Same. The Usual. I haven't donated 1000's so I've never had priority. It's seniority and donation, but I'm just not made of money. Happy enough though to do my thing and get yearly season tix. Let's cross our fingers for tomorrow I guess

  5. Beyond exciting. We all wish we had had another banton year, he's like a lankier SGA, he's amazing. Real happy here, I don't think it could be more of a win-win for all parties involved as it turned out!

    So happy I renewed this year, can't wait to see college ball in PBA again,  and in person.

    A major knock on wood too for covid, f™™™ covid and delta, we need our bball!!!! ^_^:D

    Drake the best three point shooter in this photo?

    931D6366-ADA6-49AF-935D-0A11EC5CBBF1.jpegI also happen to be a raps fan from way back in the bosh days, boy some years were rough. So when I saw this on Instagram, boy you can't say how excited I was. This is the pinnacle of fulfilling, all of drake, raptors and nebrasketball in one photo. Worlds colliding. So incredibly happy for the kid. And excited for scottie despite what experts say!


    Shouldn't be disappointed in him in 5 years, it does seem ujiri and Co are moving towards the NBA trend now of lanky versatile 2 way players who are very unselfish and good scorers. I would've been real happy with Suggs though, ofc. Can't complain, it was a great night :)

    Slightly OT I know, but the draft itself was fantastic the other night... So many exciting young franchises to watch this year, like Charlotte, okc... Detroit...

    Congratulations to Banton. Has to be a nice feather for Coach Hoiberg and Coach Matt to take to future recruits…

    Was just saying the same to a friend. This is gonna give proof and credance,  Add weight behind fred/Co's voices, if there wasn't already some there. The locker rooms already vibes really well, I can't wait to see it on the court. Recruits will come. Time to win. :)

    There was a box to check to upgrade the seats, not sure if thats the same as chhose your own seat.  Probably need to call the ticket office I assume

    I think I Did push upgrade, maybe it didn't work. Yeah you're probably right, I'll have to sort it out and look into it. Might be too late anyway(idk the date for the rush, if it's still like that) , and I don't care enough probably to bother. Prob will next year?

  9. Welp,  even with the increase the huskers and this exciting team were just simply too tantalizing, boys. The other day I went ahead and renewed. 😀 Too excited to skip, esp with the idea of losing my seat.


    Hope to move up possibly but not a big deal... Happy to be back in for sure. Anyone here know how the choose-your-seat (?) thing works again, or have they changed it?@hhcmatt I didn't get to do it when I bought it. In past years, you'd get a certain date closer to the season where you can do the movement and upgrading process, and from memory it was always a bit of a rush. Nbd either way though... Sure it'll sort itself out.

    It's an arena owned by the city; capacity, masks, etc will follow what is set by the city.


    For anyone who hasn't received a vaccination yet,  please do so as soon as possible. 

    Of course. This has to be broadcasted. People acting like children this year. But yeah I think we'll be fine in going to games, other sports being an example of in person sports happening again. I'm caught up myself with the vaccines, so I'm happy. Might be a lil  harder with an indoor sport, but should be fine. We will all need to be careful in the fall though , I feel like it'll have an infection comeback during flu season (lot of people saying this), unfortunately.

    I'm not going to do the math but ya I was shocked at how much my tickets went up this year too. I understand making up for lost revenue from last year but there has to be a way to temper that a little *cough* sell beer *cough*


    The paperless ticket situation at the baseball games was quite the crapshow as well. Compounded by them only using one or two gates in the front. I'm hoping there's an alternative option to the paperless. Or some people won't be able to go to games anymore, or have to figure out how to go as they only use a flip phone, yes my parents are old-ish and don't care to learn new technology.

    SELL. BEER. Louder for the people in the back!


    I'm a huge craft beer dude but anything will do. I've seen it done beautifully at TD park and other places. Its gotta happen!

    Loved how they raised ticket prices by about 20% (at least for my seats) per ticket after the two worst seasons in program history and sticking with the team through the pandemic. Was kinda disappointed to see that, honestly.

    Yeah... Cash strapped as I am, I'm hard pressed to renew, when I love the huskers and this team and want to lock it down... I've loved being a season ticket holder so long now. But yeah the gall... Maybe they expect a huge jump too with the talent coming, and fans back in the arena and enthusiasm. Still thinking it over. 180 smackaroos  for a guy like me is a lot. Worth it probably , but still.


    Anyone have any news on how they'll handle covid? Like will we need clean tests in addition to documentation (vaccine card)?? I'm pretty interested to know!


    Nervous about losing my seat rn. Last year was weird.

    Hoiberg constantly gets asked about this and almost always has the same things to say....they practice them, they run less if they make them, etc

    Yeah I have no qualms with how hoiberg runs practice with the FTs and suicides (running the court punishments). After all, he's historically one of the best shooters in the nba and at the line. So idk, only explanation is the husker jinx; maybe there's a series of cabals of witches out there constantly casting this curse on us.


    Otherwise, getting better at free throws is very simple: nash's method: lots of volume of practice with good mechanics, playing little FT games to make it interesting, that's it. If you have good mechanics as a shooter you're probably a good shooter from the line.

    It's more than the last few years, it's most of the nebraska basketball history where we've been abysmal. It's so frustrating. 😠Maybe it's a lazy culture? Ffs iowa and creighton must have better discipline at the line. In reality I don't believe in curses, as much as I like to joke about it

    It was a win...and it likely would not have been last year.  Players seemed to realize they needed to feed the beast in the second half, and did so. 

    If the game was a movie title, I would vote for "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

    And oh by the way, before others choose to bash Thor, please learn what his role is, what he is being asked to do by the coaches, what his teammates say he brings to the court and then watch the tape and specifically what he is doing within the game.  Just saying...

    And furthermore, this team does not need a volume shooter or a player that demands X number of shots per game.  We have players who can score; and so can Thor, he just understands he doesn't need to at this time.


    The sheer balance between our roster in scoring / focus on assisting and the extra pass... I LOVE it. Gimme more. You're probably not getting hero ball much this year which is satisfying as all hell. teddy came through tonight, he's a player I already love and adopt as our nebraska son, I feel like he's the glue guy and soon to be fan favorite. Frustrating sometimes but the kid has no fear, his confidence is important on a nebraska program that has history of weak willed surrender. 

    Your point is well taken; the team simply has enough talent and a system in place now to pass it around and let "whoever offense" reign supreme. Balanced scoring won't win wooden awards, but it'll win a lotta ball games and with defensibe intensity will not only give you a shot in every game, but wins trophies.

    I'm not sure, but I think this may be a Big Ten thing and not a Nebraska thing.  I.E. I think they're using the same crowd noise sound in all the Big Ten arenas.  I heard something during the Minnesota game the other day about how they had to agree on specific decibel levels for the piped in crowd noise, and it would not surprise me at all to learn that they insisted on using the same sound too.


    But having that said, it is awful and I wish they could do better.

    Yeah, that was going through my head too, I heard the same thing, that the conference teams use the same sound file. I agree with the conf that there needs to be regulation on sound levels, but that doesn't mean then need the same file... Why don't they mix a lot of those home crowd noises? We have so many talented people in the program who could mix this up with some work. They could still then limit the volume to a level
