I'm Not.

This team is learning to win. As mentioned above in past years it would have been a L. Any win, by 1 Pt. even, is a good improvement.


I agree with this. In prior years, the Huskers would have disappointed their fans with a loss. NU basketball is improving. Kudos to them and I hope they can win enough to earn a spot in the Big Dance in March...

Ciao..LiO...Peace

I had the same thought. I would have assumed that he would have been there at the Dec game when Scott F. walked out and waved to the crowd pregame without speaking to the crowd.

Looks like it is, this is a seriously questionable move transferring right in the middle of league play.

Not sure, he has had a really rough year but his last game was one of his best. Personally, I’ve liked our shorter lineup with Roby in instead of Jordy.

Yeah he's had a down year compared to expectations. Though he did look better against Wisconsin.

He's not traveling to Penn State.

According to the Journal Star it's a fluid situation and the coaching staff is trying to get it resolved in the next few days.

Lunardi's latest Bracketology only has 5 B1G teams in:
1 Seed Mich St.
2 Seed Purdue
8 Seed Michigan
9 Seed Ohio St.
10 Seed Maryland

Minnesota is listed as a next four out. Nebraska is not in the equation yet.
They do not have a questionable loss, but do not have a quality win.
They need to steal a road win at Ohio St or a home win against Maryland.
Minnesota is in disarray right now, Pitino is anything like his dad.
Losing a big in the front court will hurt against Penn St.,
so this next game is going to be huge in regards to the dance or NIT.

Yeah Minnesota is a mess right now.

Young Pitino might be on the hot seat. They just gave him a large extension during the offseason.

This was a pathetic loss. Penn State is not a good team. Unlike the last 4 or 5 teams Nebraska has played Penn State had no superstar player that could take over the game. The game was tied up with 20 seconds or so left in the game and Nebraska had the ball and called time out and gave the ball to Watson who ran the clock down to 3 seconds and then sent the game into overtime with a missed 15 ft jumper shot clanking off the rim. :oops: Even the announcer said it was inexcusable for Nebraska to come out of a time out with that lame attempt. It was absolutely horrible. Mismanagement and ineptitude would only get worse for Nebraska in overtime like when Roby lost track of the clock and was caught standing dumb and surprised in the middle of the court with a shot clock violation. Then at the end of the game there was Roby looking dumbfounded again with the ball in his hands taking another wild shot at a time that was no time to be taking wild shots........ And Tim Miles was sitting on the bench not saying much instead of yelling at the top of his lungs at the incompetence. It hurt Nebraska big time not having center Tshimanga. Between the starting center threatening to leave the team and this poorly coached and managed game one can not help but think the wheels have come off the axle and this thing is going to crash and burn in an ugly end. Right now its safe to say that 2 months from now Nebraska will have fired Miles and looking hard for a new coach.

Did anyone else that watched the game last night hear the Color guy talk about Baby Blue in the Railroad district around Pinnacle? He went on and on about how good it was and how it was a surprise in the midwest.

While Nebraska has yet to get a quality win, at least they do not have a questionable loss. They need to beat Illinois at home tonight and keep at least that stat intact
But, even if they end up with 19-20 wins, they will need some good conference tournament wins to at least be on the bubble, where according to all brackets out there, they do are not even in the next four out group.

Jordy T. Not transferring.

Will not play against Illinois tonight.

Will be interesting to see if he transfers after season or stays. Either would not surprise me.

When asked what he thought about that last game winning shot coach Miles replied "I would rather be lucky then good." That summed up the situation well. It was a horrible ill advised last shot. After losing their last game due to bad game management they almost turned around and did the same thing. Illinois might be the worst team in the conference and Nebraska was lucky to squeak past them. Miles is loosing/lost this team and it has and is degenerating to every man for himself. The players are often skipping passing the ball and just taking shots themselves. It appears that Jordy T. was going to leave until he found out that he could not play for another team until 2020....... so he has decided to at least finish out the season before he transfers. Even though it was Isaiah Roby's fault they choked and lost to Penn State last week I think Miles is a fool for not getting the ball to Roby more often. I think Isaiah Roby is the most talented and promising player on the team and Miles should get on that horse and ride him hard.

Last night just felt like a loss for most of the game. One we could not afford.

I will definitely take the win.

Will need to play better at Michigan this week.

Barfknecht: Smaller ‘death lineup’ may breathe new life into Nebraska basketball

By Lee Barfknecht / World-Herald staff writer wrote:With the 6-foot-11, 268-pound Tshimanga back on the team but no longer starting as he did the first 18 games, coach Tim Miles has gone more to his “smaller” lineup. That means 6-8, 225-pound Isaiah Roby at center and 6-9, 221-pound Isaac Copeland at power forward.

After Roby, Copeland and guards James Palmer, Glynn Watson and Anton Gill turned a one-point game at Northwestern with eight minutes left into a 15-point Husker romp, Wildcats coach Chris Collins called it “the death lineup.” “We didn’t have an answer,” he said.
