What have you done for me lately?

Recommended Posts

It's coming. MBB is not doing well. Baseball is a big question mark. It's coming to an internet message board near you. Everyone get ready!

Yeah but football has three fourths of the total fans and it's the best it's been in nine years. Not to mention WBB at it's highest point ever.

I am amazed on how many fans have came out of the woodwork for Women's BBall. It's good to see any home state sport (UNO/UNL, etc.) dominate over the out of state competition. And really opens up the fan-base for not just in-state fans, but new fans across the U.S.

 

Husker baseball ehh..

Men's BBall major ehh right now.

Wrestling looks good for both UNO/UNL, UNO will probably win another national champ. this year.

UNO hockey...wow, a lot of new fans (including myself) of that one.

 

Best thing though is that since Nebraska's football program is back on the right track, you really see publicly the pride that was gone for awhile, and seeing people that get along the best or willing to say Hi to you just for being another fan, really is something special.

It's nice to see people supporting the women's team, but it's pathetic to see people start to care only because they are winning. Oh well, such is the state of humanity I suppose, I am just as guilty.

A lot of them are football fans as well, it's just with the gender specifics it tends to push "MEN" away in a sense of fan-dom. But on the news the other night after beating KU, u heard a lot of guys say "I love football, but I might start watching this a bit more, pretty exciting.."

A serious question here, cuz i'm not a baseball by any means, but was Nebraska even relevant prior to 2000 season when they nearly made it to the CWS, and then they made it a few times, and maybe is it possible they had a decade that was a bit above average. I guess i'm just trying to make a point that alot "other" things stood out a lot more over the last decade with the football program goin thru such struggles. Adjusted for the times of course-could it be said that the men's basketball programs gets more looks now than it did in the nineties when it was winnin 20 game routinely and even winning conference and national tournaments?

Are you making a serious statement that someone might/should consider firing T.O.?

The women’s basketball bandwagon is lame IMO. :moreinteresting Sure it is cool that they are #3 in the nation but it is retarded that people act like they care now when 3 months ago they couldn’t even name one player on the team. <_< Crap there was someone on here asking why they wore white uniforms at home. :wacko: A guy my brother works with has had season tickets to the women’s games for years because they were cheap and readily available. He hates the new “love” that people have because the crowds went from a handful to everyone and their brother. Don’t worry though the new found excitement will die down starting in the middle of next year when they go back to being just another team.

 

It is very similar to baseball a few years ago. Before Van Horn you could walk up and get tickets at the gate, heck sometimes they would let you walk right in, then when the team started winning you couldn’t get a ticket to save your life. Now that the bum Anderson :madash is running the show tickets are everywhere.

 

T.O. will never get fired because of a lackluster men’s basketball team or a terrible men’s baseball team because at the end of the day those teams are truly after thoughts in the minds of most Husker fans.

speaking of walking right into games...last year i went to a bunch of mens basketball games because of my cousin, who would leave me tickets at will call. If I got there after about the first qtr or so, the lady wouldnt even bother looking for them, and would just wave us in-- and that was before this years skunkfest. I bet a guy wouldnt have needed to buy tickets and could have made every home game this year. <_<

You're exactly right. AD's at Nebraska lose their jobs based upon the performance of the football team. AD's at KU lose their jobs based upon the performance of the basketball team. As long as the bread and butter sports program is hitting on all cylinders, the AD's job is not in jeopardy. Back when I was in college (93-96), there were only two sports programs that even operated in the black. They were the football program and the men's basketball program even though the volleyball team won a NC during that time frame. I'd venture to guess that several die hard Nebraska football fans don't even know the womens basketball team is undefeated and #3 in the country.

Any chance of seeing them on tv out west?

I'd heard they were ranked in the top 5, but I didn't know they were still undefeated.

There's nothing wrong with being a bandwagon fan as long as you admit it. I'm moderately excited to see how Nebraska does in the tournament, even though I've never watched a full game of women's basketball in my life.

My wife seems to find a game occasionally on our dish. She's been a huge fan for several years as she played high school ball with a couple of girls that played and started for Nebraska back in the 90's.

Heck, we live in Lincoln and see very few games on TV. Even NETV (public TV) barely shows games. I've been taking my daughter to games for a couple of years now. Since they've been on fire this year we only went to a few games early on. I think KSU was the last game we went to, and then tickets started getting sold out.

 

Next year it'll be calmed down enough that we can get tickets again pretty easy, I'm guessing. We'll be OK again, but not nearly this good.

Ive got 3000 freakin channels and I cant seem to catch them here in Nebraska. Almost every night I see 3-4 listings in my on-screen guide "Womens College Basketball," and its always UCONN vs Notre Dame...OR... Southside Nun Academy vs Weebolow Tech. So frustrating.

Agreed. UConn has been on A LOT. I've probably seen twice as many UConn games as I've seen UNL games.

I'm sure Alabama's football team will be on a lot next year as well. It's understandable why UCONN is on so much. I've probably watched or been made to watch 5-8 Nebraska games this season. It's nice that Connie Yori won Big 12 Coach of the year and is up for national coach of the year honors. Unfortunately, I'm sure I'm going to have to watch more and more women's sports throughout my lifetime as my daughter gets older.

I saw where Okie Lite wimmens were on last weekend, so I searched Dishnetwork again for "Nebraska"

 

Usually only some movie comes up.."Boys don't cry"? but this time there was some hunting show for white-tail in southern NE.

 

Seems like there are dozens of BB games on every day, but I have yet to see our Men or Women play on TV..EVER.

I'm not sure where you live, but several of the Men's games have been on Lincoln TWC Channel 15. I've seen probably twice as many men's games on TV as women's.

What is up with #44 and her freethrow shooting percentage? I don't want to single her out because she is a really good player. She rebounds great, blocks shots, and is an outstanding defender. However, she shoots like 14% from the freethrow line. I've watched her form, and it looks pretty decent. I mean it's not like that shotput style Shaq uses or anything. If only she could bump that up to say 60 or so percent, she'd be a dominant player for us.

Redmon isn't great from the stripe, but I believe she holds the Husker record for blocked shots. Not sure if that's for a season or a career, but the bottom line is, if she's around you're going to have to alter your shot or get it shoved back in your face.

 

She has skills in some areas and lacks in others. Like most players, I guess. I would like to see her shoot better from the stripe too, though.

Lady huskers up on Mizzou 39-28 at half too.

 

You might wanna sit down for this, but that's actually the men's team that's about to beat Mizzou.

Heck, I didn't even know we had a women's basketball team. If there's some hotties playing for them I'll watch!

Basketball is secondary in Nebraska and this helps prove it.

 

How many "fans" realize that there are no "quarters" in BB. They play 2 "halves".

 

Sports are entertainment, if the product is good people want to see it. If it's not, well then....

 

People could have walked in after the first half of the OSU football game in '07 and sat anywhere they wanted; AND THAT WAS HUSKER FOOTBALL!!!!
