  1. Wow at a spot of need too. Really thought we were out of the running for this one too, but this would be a very nice get for this staff.
  2. Time to see if we belong and I wouldn't have it any other way. I think we have to be happy with getting out of the first 6 Big ten games at 3-3 or better. A couple tough road matches the next couple games. The next 6 games after that brings some intriguing home match-ups where hopefully we can gain some ground because that next 6 games is a pretty brutal way to end the season.
  3. Incident happened in February but video just now released. How long until a suspension? Not a good look for the NFL.    http://www.tmz.com/2018/11/30/kc-chiefs-kareem-hunt-attacked-kicked-woman-surveillance-video/

      F-ing Kareem Hunt. I knew some stupid **** was going to derail the Chiefs this year.

      Not a good look for the Chiefs.

  4. I completely agree. These Husker Hoops boards are getting to become nearly impossible to come to and read anymore because of the constant pessimism. We had a good year last year unexpectedly which should be cause for hope, and then now this year we return the main core of the team and the majority of outsiders pick us to continue that success and have another good year. This is as much optimism as there has been around the program in quite some time, and I think most people can clearly say this year's team is significantly different than the 2014-2015 team in that you can easily see the sustained success. But yet you come to this board and the majority of the talk is negative and looking past this year. Just enjoy what we have now and worry about the years after later. This is a good time to be a Husker Hoops fan.
  5. I watch a pretty significant amount of soccer and the +5 (or whatever) has always been there. Could see how it would be confusing if you were watching a match where this was not there though.
  6. Pretty good article on Bud Crawford as the lead story on ESPN's website right now

      Still kind of annoyed by this ESPN+ thing.  I subscribed, and it's actually kind of awesome if you're a fan of classic boxing, but I'm still annoyed.  


      Arum took him off HBO because they threw him on PPV too soon.  The whole point of going to ESPN was for the exposure.  He'd get a lot more on regular ESPN.

      It was a great article, by the way.

      Can't wait to see him beat the piss out of Jeff Horn.

  7. http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/education-not-income-predicted-who-would-vote-for-trump/ I honestly think this article has a lot to do with this whole situation
  8. That's a very powerful article and sadly more true than it should be. Until we do something about this problem, whether it be funding more mental health research to diagnose the issue, passing common sense legislation such as not allowing those that are mentally ill to legally purchase a gun, or as a society becoming more informed voter and getting people in Washington that will better represent their constituents, the question will always remain......WHO, WHERE, and HOW MANY? That's something I don't want to accept and I hope Americans around the country agree.
  9. The one thing I see continuously get brought up in this thread is that there is an assumption people want to ban guns or just simply assault weapons completely. While in my opinion, I think banning these types of weapons would help tremendously as evidence by countries all over the world, that is not what most are arguing. We have to start somewhere with this issue because it is one that is too hard to ignore anymore, and quite frankly should have been a long time ago. Is it really that outlandish to start requiring more background checks to obtain these types of weapons? Is that too much of a hassle for law-abiding citizens to take part in? Sure, the people with intentions to carry out these acts will more times than not find a way to still obtain the weapons. But if it can even stop one of these tragedies or even save just one life is it not worth it? People get too focused on the idea that people are coming to take their guns, and that just isn't the case at all. Most people just simply want tighter restrictions and common sense laws that can help to START combating these issues. Nothing will change overnight but we have to start moving forward with ways to stop these unbelievable tragedies. When each one becomes less and less shocking, there is a major problem. Sorry for the rant........
  10. Just crazy to me that Maryland could be ahead of us according to that. I know it's been said over and over again in here that the committee doesn't look at conference record but come on, they are 4-7 in the conference and 2-6 in their last 8 games. I don't know in what world they should be considered higher than us in anyone's rankings.
  11. Pretty quite from this guy during and after the game.... Regardless it was good to see this team go out and execute a game plan tonight. It was clear we made it a focus to defend hard and take out their bigs. I thought we did a real good job at it. This team is gonna go as Watson goes and he had it tonight. Good win against a good team but now it’s time to go get after Creighton who seems to be Miles’ worst nightmare. Go Big Red!
  12. Tell me about it....he's from my home town and his is family are all Husker fans too. Ran into him and his dad walking over the bridge on the north side of the stadium our first year in the B1G when we played Iowa in Football. His dad was wearing Husker stuff but Mike wasn't wearing any memorabilia for either team. Seems to have worked out pretty well for him. He made a good decision for his future and has had a very successful 4 years at Iowa. I would've loved to get him to Nebraska but can't fault him for making the decision he did.
  13. This is one of those losses that is tough to swallow. They built up a solid lead and completely blew it down the stretch. I love Tim Miles but his in-game adjustments need to be way better. At some point we gotta figure out that we gotta put a body on somebody and rebound. Hopefully this team can find a way to put this behind them and get focused on Indiana. The games aren't gonna get easier from here. If they can't find a way to close out games, it's gonna be a lonnnnnng conference season
  14. This is a total joke of a post. Nice job cherry picking one moment of the game. Besides about 6 minutes of terrible basketball - miles looked like a typical coach of a team that totally outclassed the competition. If you want to make a comment about the final score and then let that reflect on our coach then it would hold more weight. You are free to think what you want. My post is more than one game. It was 31-28 at half time, how many minutes are in each half? You also, obviously. Your post was very much pointed at one point of the game. Now your mind might have been thinking about the entire season - but reading it with out being able to have any additional clues makes that difficult. How many minutes into the game was it when they went on the 16-0 run? If you take that number and subtract it from "how many minutes are in each half" you will get the number of minutes that we looked terrible. "Webster keyed the run after Prairie View A&M erased an 18-point first-half deficit, taking a 34-33 lead after Tevin Bellinger’s jumper with 17:33 remaining. Benny Parker’s 3-pointer from the corner with 16:57 left started the run, as Nebraska turned up the defensive pressure, recording five steals and holding the Panthers without a field goal for a stretch of 5:43." Sounds like you are now cherry picking to find something in your favor. In that game, we saw much of the same undisciplined play we have seen in many games this year. That is coaching! and to lose an 18 point lead against PV is a joke! Also the game was over half over before NU started its run. Let me say this again.. PV was 0-10 and one of the worst in the country. Making excuses for poor play even though they finally got things going doesn't help solve anything. Don't get the cherry picking comment - care to explain. PV is a terrible team and I didn't deny that or claim that this was a "special" win. No where in this entire thread did I make a single excuse for poor play - if so please show me.... I guess your math skills were not strong enough to solve the period of time that they played "terrible" so I will help. Using the play by play box score (because we could go on for hours discussing the quality of play - whether a basket is made or not) 6:26 to go in first half we are up 26-11 so this is were I mentioned the play got terrible. 17:32 to go in the second half is were we started to have a heart beat (20:00 - 17:32 = 2:28) 6:26 + 2:28 = 8:54 (sorry in my original post I stated they played "terrible" for 6 minutes --- it should have stated 8:54 minutes) So for 31:06 minutes we outscored them 74-27, whether we played good or average during this time - is debatable, however hard to say it was terrible. for 8:54 minutes we got outscored 7-23, clearly terrible against a team that has and will continue to struggle. Come back with whatever you want because i'm sure it will be good, however i'm done talking about this game. This debate has gone on about 6 post too many..... Your obsession with time is cherry picking, so much so you ignore what happened during the whole game. Getting outscored in 9 minutes by PV is terrible! Letting PV go on a 16-0 run no matter what is terrible! Getting our butts handed to us by full court pressure is terrible. NU looked like a Junior High team playing against the zone and trying to break the press. Multiple turnovers, a 10 second violation (yes seriously, a 10 second violation against a man to man full court press. I'm normally just a casual looker of posts on here, but your comments made me have to sign in and comment. I'm not sure why you need to be so negative about this game. Yes. I realize that PV is bad and this is a game we should win handily, which in the end we actually did if you would stop worrying about the smaller portion of the game where we struggled. All teams go through stretches where they don't look good. It's college basketball and these are college kids out there playing. We have a very, very young team and a few of them are getting adjusted to the level of play at the college level. If some of these players were at another school, they wouldn't be seeing the court this early in the year. I think it's good for them and will bode well in the future but you gotta take the growing pains that come with. Coming here and saying Tim Miles is a joke of a coach hits me very badly. That's a bad overreaction and quite frankly I don't think it is necessary to post in here.
  15. This team seems to be on a roll right now, hopefully they can go out and win the series tomorrow to get some momentum for the big series this weekend. Would be huge to grab a couple from Texas.
