Someone (Roby) needs to head to the rim when Palmer does as three terps converge on him

Another stellar out of a timeout play in crunch time

I know that turned out well, but how the hell was that the play they came up with?

 

Is this your first time watching Tim draw a play?

Welcome to time-outs with Timmy.  It is the norm

BIG win.  Knock a bubble team off and keep rolling.  A 6 seed is going to hate it if we end up an 11.

 I’m thinking if we win out we can do no worse then a 10 seed even if they are one and done in the big ten tournament.  Win one game in the tournament and I think they move up to 8 seed.

If that is the case keep us a 10.  No difference on the 7s, but the 2s don't do much for me.

Surprised there isn’t more chatter in here. This game is fun as hell to watch.

 

Need Palmer to keep the aggressiveness up 

Busy watching. What a game

I thought a team in our position traditionally got seeded between 5-7 in the dance. Assuming they keep it up.

Guess we’ll find out.

I believe if we switched records with Wisconsin they’d be talking about how Wisconsin might need to step it up to get a 4 seed... because they’re known to be such a great team.

That last 5 minutes of "offense" sure had a puckering effect, but good teams find a way to win

You’re not wrong. A traditional power with our schedule and results would likely be perceived differently.

I sort of just assume Tim just draws boobies on the dry erase board and giggles... Which would be better than the play he drew up.

In order for us to make the tournament we have to win out and win one conference tournament game.  The eye test says we should be in but I could be a complete homer.  Rasmussen wasn't impressed with our resume and our "quadrant" wins as of yesterday.

I will never understand why Miles sat Palmer for a few minutes as he was red hot! He did the same earlier in the year with Copeland but earlier in the game. Last night it was crunch time and Miles sits him for a break. Guess what? Nebraska never scored another field goal. Luckily this team can win in spite of Miles.

I don't think Miles thought he was going to be out that long. IIRC, he took him out with about 4:48 left. I think Miles thought there would be a quicker whistle to get them the under-4 TV timeout but the TV timeout ended up not coming until 2:56. We survived, but I think Palmer would have been fine staying in

He said in the little interview after the game with the BTN guy that it was a bad move.  He then said he was trying to get him in earlier.

On his postgame radio interview he threw Kenya Hunter under the buss as the assistant who convinced him to give him a breather.

This is the first 20 win regular season for Nebraska in 25 years.

 

The sixth 20 win season in more than 100 years of basketball history.

 

That's a tad embarrassing, so maybe we give Tim Miles a bit more credit and a little less second-guessing.

So why is that throwing him under the bus?  If it is the truth.

He was in the game the last 3 minutes of that 5 minute field goal drought. Rewatch the game, they had plenty of decent looks during that drought, not much Miles can do about guys not knocking down shots.

I understand that but also still question why sit him no matter how short Miles intended when he was hitting everything he tossed up? I'm sure Maryland enjoyed it.

Bingo.  Enjoy the win and the season.

He wanted his best player to have fresh legs at the end of the game. The lead meant we could afford to do so, and like it was previously stated, our guys had open shots we just weren't hitting them.

This team is clearly having fun this year.  Yes, winning is part of it, but I think a lot more of it is team chemistry and overall culture.

Nice to see Jack having fun.  A guy who played a lot delegated to the bench.
