    Jerry Palm updated his projection today on CBS Sports. Six seed in Jacksonville vs Utah State. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/bracketology/

    Huskers up to 14 at KenPom, 15 in ESPN's BPI after the Oklahoma State win.
  3. Thanks. Just read that at the OWH website & was coming back to say "never mind", but you got back right way.
  4. Did they miss because of illness or finals? It's hard to schedule practice around finals most years & a few players miss a practice or two because it overlaps with a final.

    Not really, but I'm sure Miles will reach out to him. I know if I were a D1 coach at school in a major conference I would. The worst that happens is he says he has no interest.

    He's already been at that one year school for a year & a half so there must be something wrong.

    Copeland was a 5-star out of HS + Miles has had luck with transfer guards.

    This would be an interesting pick up if we could get him. Probably not eligible next year & we need bigs more than we need a point. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/former-five-star-prospect-quade-green-leaving-kentucky-basketball-program/

    Hard to see Wisconsin's future since Happ is out of eligibility and he is their everything.

    And Chris Jackson. Dale Brown was a great coach. They clearly have some tradition.

    So you are saying LSU has no basketball tradition? Say hi to Shaq & Pistol Pete.

    OK, so technically they haven't hired his legal guardian. But they have implied that they might. https://www.courier-journal.com/story/sports/college/kentuckiana/2018/06/14/reasons-wku-basketball-charles-bassey-signing/702239002/

    I've told people around my office (mostly Jayskers since I live in Omaha), that the best case scenario for the Huskers would be that Miles takes them to the Sweet 16 and then a "bigger" basketball school "steals" him. We then can, hopefully, hire a coach who isn't a mid-major "up & comer". Hopefully an assistant on a traditional power or a coach who has had success at a major school, but has been out of coaching for a year or two.

    When was the last time a 5-star recruit went to a school with no tradition unless they hired his father, HS coach, AAU coach, etc?

    I think Copeland will be much harder to replace than the other two. He is the most efficient player on the team. I think Burke will replace Palmer & the point guard will be more of a committee thing. In theory Roby could replace Copeland, but he would have to be much more aggressive.

    Maybe, Osbourne took over a year after they had won back to back championships & Miles took over when the program was just short of a dumpster fire. Facilities are important, but they are not a panacea. Cameron Indoor & Allen Fieldhouse are dumps but Duke & Kansas get great players every year because they are dumps with tradition. The second & third tier of players like shiny new facilities, but the top tier likes tradition more so they go to Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, UNC, etc.

    Allen, Burke, Adams-Woods can all play the point. Maybe Harris a little too. Thor played point for Iceland this summer. I think Allen proved that he can drive & score two days ago against Creighton. Burke is lighting up practice as a scorer from what I've heard. Harris' only way to score right now is by driving because his jump shot looks horrible. Green is a driver based on the highlights I've seen. Size is a definite issue. The only player(s) they will have over 6' 6" will be Heiman and Roby if he comes back. They still have two or three (depending on Roby) open scholarships for next year. Miles needs to be looking at guys who play either the 4 or 5 for all of them.
  18. Sioux Falls has a fairly new arena and has gotten a game similar to this the last 3-4 years. It works out good for both teams because they don't have to do a home & home, but get to play a major conference team.

    Hopefully his illness is short term & he's back by January. I'm sure NBA guys see him as a "3 & D" guy, but the 3 part needs some work.
  20. Hard to tell with Severe since all that's ever in the hard copy of the paper is short 1 question & answer quotes from his podcast - usually 3 at a time, but all from different interviews.
  21. Like most OWH writers, he kisses the rear ends of NU football & volleyball and Creighton in basically everything else.
  22. I've always felt that McDermott & Creighton got lucky with his son. Doug had signed a LOI with Northern Iowa while Greg was at ISU and getting it handed to him. Had he stayed 1 more season he would have been out of a job & Doug would have been lighting up The Valley at UNI. Creighton would have been the like all the other Valley teams and had it handed to them by Wichita State & would have never received an invite to the reconfigured Big East.
  23. At this point my voice is getting used to the yelling so my voice is still intact. Season tickets are always worth it.

    Offensive Identity

    It's the difference between an offensive minded coach (Beilein) who brought in a defensive minded coach (Saddi Washington) to be his lead assistant & a defensive minded coach (Miles) who has a defensive minded coach as his lead assistant (Jim Molinari).
