Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

Nebraska gave this game away. They should have easily won this. Shot clock violation with 1:02. Turnovers. They were all in this until the end. The bad part is that the shot clock violation came after a timeout by NU. No excuses there. I actually don't like the call to take a timeout in the middle ...

Re: Drive In Theater Proposed

I still wish the drive-in in CB was still open. I thought that was a great location since it was so close to downtown Omaha and Lake Manawa.

We went to one in Door County, WI in August and my kids loved it.

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

I think the Jays played ok @ Providence. Its not like it is easy to snag a win on the road there. Besides, they have owned Creighton at the Dunkin Donuts Center, with the the Jays only having one win there since joining the Big East. Really, even though St. Johns is still winless at 0-8, the game th...

Re: Family Video

I used to really like Family Video, but we went there over Christmas for the first time in a year and they raised the prices. I think a 5 day rental was something like $3.29 for DVD and $3.79 for Bluray. I don't get why I would pay that much when I can just go get one at Redbox for $1.50 or $2.00, e...

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

Last year it was Mo Watson on January 16th, this year its Martin on January 17th.

I wonder if Manny Suarez can step in and provide a quality 10-12 min a game. I think the consensus is that the Jays are probably going to have to play small ball.

Another 4 star top 150 player. You can't say McDermott isn't bringing in talent, just wish we can get over 'the hump' in the tourney. You have to remember that the Jays are only 4-5 years removed from the Valley. I believe Toby Hegner is the last Valley player. I think we should start seeing the be...

Same old story for Creighton in the 2nd half. In each of their 3 games, they have led by either double digits or the majority of the game only to choke at the end. The only game they haven't led the majority was the Nebraska game. Last night, Foster and Thomas were a combined 2-13 with 4 pts, 4 rebs...

Jays set an arena record with their 3rd highest score in program history with 116 pts last night. They also hit 19 3's and had a program record of 32 assists.

I think they finished ahead of where many picked them to be record wise in the non-conference part of the schedule, 10-2.

At least through the first half, I was right about Creighton easily handling UT Arlington. The Jays were up by 20. Unfortunately they got sloppy in the 2nd half but still held on to lead for the majority of the game.

What a game by Foster in front of all those scouts there to see Hervey.
