  1. We had quite the offseason with a new coach, new staff, almost entirely new roster, and lots of anticipation for this program. We entered into Week 1 and it appears we won't be winning the Big Sky or Big West conference this season. Sadly, HHC continues to feel like the offseason right now. On to the next week.

  2. Here we are. That long offseason is finally coming to an end. Get your Halloween scaries out of your system and move over to November. New coach. New season. New expectations. This may be your first time playing Husker Hoops Central Challenge. You may have played this for years. That's great. Because we want anybody and everybody to participate. Did you miss a few games? That's great too. Because you can still make a deep run into the standings. Don't care about competing against people? Fantastic. Because you can still beat Robot HAL 9000 Ken Pomeroy. Just post your prediction (and bonus prediction, when applicable) in the HHCC threads. And if you happen to miss any games or are joining us 10 weeks into the season, don't worry. You're still in the running! THREE THINGS THIS HHCC ROUND: 1) Your score prediction for Nebraska vs. UC Riverside (as usual). 2) BONUS (-5 points): Predicting the exact number of non-conference season wins (Nov. 5-Dec. 7, Dec. 21-29) -- (e.g. I am looking for an answer like "11," which indicates the number of wins you predict Nebraska will win in the non-conference.) 3) *Predicting the exact number of total regular season (non-conference + conference) wins (Nov. 5-Mar. 8 ) -- (e.g. I am looking for an answer like "31," which indicates the number of wins you predict Nebraska will win in the entire regular season.) * This will not count as a bonus (and it will not count against you), but in the past years it has been a missing data point of interest that would've been useful in seeing how closely we have come to predicting the outcome of the season
  3. HUSKER HOOPS CENTRAL CHALLENGE IS BACK! Believe it or not, we're 2 days away from November, which means college basketball is right around the corner. Now go out there, eat your candy corn, drink your pumpkin spiced lattes, and go pick out your favorite Fall sweater (not blue). We've got a new head coach. A brand new team. And some Year 1 Scott Frost-like energy going on around here. For all you regulars and all you newcomers, the Husker Hoops Central Challenge is back at it again! Whether you've played every season or you've never played before; whether you made your picks since Game 1 or you're just not starting halfway through the season; whether you're here to prove you're smarter than Ken Pomeroy or you're just here to beat everyone else on the board, then this is the place for you. Seriously, the more people, the better. And if you're reading this in January, I've seen people join in late in the season and still make a deep run on the leaderboard, so don't let that deter you. This is where legends and leaders are born. Bragging rights are on the line. Don't live a life 10 years from now thinking, "Boy, I wish I had played in that HHCC game back in 2019-2020." Let this challenge be your distraction from the chaos we're about to see this season. The rules are the same as last year with more opportunities to earn some bonus points throughout the season. Last year's Top 10 finishers were: 1 Nebrasketball1979 2 aphilso1 3 demone 4 75unlgrad 5 4NUfans 6 tcp 7 emwilliams 8 hskr4life 9 UnicamMan 10 Ralph Wiggum *11 KenPom MVP HuskerFever Now let's go out, have a blast, and enjoy this season for what it may be. Game on. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ HHCC SCORING AND RULES If you want to be part of the HHCC, all you need to do is guess the score of each game. Participants with at least one entry will be included in the overall standings. There will be a thread available following the completion of the previous game. Scoring is based on how close you were to each team's actual point total and the margin of victory. HHCC GAME SCORING: The object of the game is to have the lowest accumulated points at the end of the year. Scoring is taken from three variables (margin of victory, actual score, correct game winner); with possible bonus points. Margin of Victory: This is how many points either team wins by. Scoring: Difference between Actual MoV (Husker score & Opponent score) Predicted MoV (Predicted Husker score & Predicted Opponent score). This is then multiplied by 2. Bonus: There is a -5 bonus for correctly predicting margin of victory. To get the bonus two things must happen. 1. Your margin of victory must match the actual margin of victory. 2. You picked the correct winner. EXAMPLE Prediction: NU 79 Opponent 72 Actual: NU 72 Opponent 62 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (Actual (72 62) = 10 - Predicted (79-72) = 7) = 3 * 2 = 6 MoV = 6 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Actual Score: This is the final point totals of both teams. Scoring: (Predicted Husker score vs. Actual Husker score) + (Predicted Opponent score Actual Opponent score) Bonus: There is a -5 bonus for correctly predicting either the Huskers score or the opponents. EXAMPLE Prediction: NU 79 Opponent 72 Actual: NU 72 Opponent 62 ------------------------------------------ (79 72) + (62 72) 7 + 10 = 17 ------------------------------------------ Game Winner: Picking the correct winner. Scoring: Zero points for correct winner. 20 point penalty for incorrect choice. The final score for this game would be 23. Correctly predicting the actual game score nets all -5 bonuses and a -25 bonus, for a best possible score of -40. Missed Game: Your score for missing a game is (the highest score of picked games + 25 points). End of year: Your highest score will be subtracted from your final point total. No Games Missed equals a -25 bonus to your final score. HHCC RULES: All new HHCC game threads will be posted following the previous game. The first game will be up after the last exhibition game. Post your prediction in the HHCC thread. All predictions must be in by the scheduled tipoff time (noted in the thread's title). Any corrections to your prediction should be done in the HHCC game thread. If you are unable to edit your score, just quote your previous score and post the new score underneath. All score updates will be posted throughout the season.
