after seeing #32 for 'Braska, I'm glad this isn't a shirts/skins game.

That was fun reading the lips of the Nebraska coach during the timeout. I believe he has called "bullshit" on his team's defensive effort.

Huskers basketball d is still better than the blackshirts

is it me or does scott look awkward driving to the hoop...wants to be that Jay Williams type of PG who can slash but just doesnt seem to be fluid enough to do it

captain obvious's picture

Scott, Craft, Thompson and even Smith all have awkward looking offensive games

Nebraska-Iowa is a game I hope the BTN will not inflict on the world.

20 years ago Nebraska unleashed

on us............since then, crickets.

This game is getting out of hand early. So, how is everyone doing here?

johnblairgobucks's picture

Noticing an abscence of Matta Boo-Birds, and enjoying it.

LadyBuck's picture

Thank god! We really had no realistic expectations for what this team would look like, that it's just silly how upset some people got when things didn't go the way they imagined it would.

buckeye_baker's picture

Admiring how good our new court looks :)

best court in the nation/world

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

LadyBuck's picture

Definitely better than Oregon's court.

Ha. Great minds.

Did anyone read anything about the new court?  It reminds me of UFM's quote, "We want to make the great state of Ohio proud".  Seems like the court coincides with that sentiment.

Nebraska looks like a team of players assembled from Lincoln and Omaha's YMCA men's leagues.
Their coach (even though it's his first year) looks like he will be fired within 3 years.

time for Qs garbage 15 and Shaggy to start jacking up 3s

Amir made a nice, strong move there. We will need plenty more of that during the season

BuckeyeUro's picture

you read my mind? same comment the same time!!

BuckeyeUro's picture

William showing flashes of power plays, I like that, hope he continues to improve, we need him bad.

LadyBuck's picture

Good start to the half, and Amir has been playing quite well. It will be interesting to see how Amir develpes and plays against the rest of the B1G bigs.

captain obvious's picture

He"ll play well against mediocre bigs and struggle against Zeller but watch out by tourney time. I think he will be a force.

Rav has been playing well this half.

Nebraska won't win the Big 10 basketball Championship this year.

Nebraska will lose in the first round of the CIT to Coastal Carolina

Careful with that kind of bold prediction, Nostradamus ;)

Not sure that is really pertinent to the game, but, hey, it's an opinion.

I know, I got that. Sarcasm font does not translate well. Upvoted to even you out there.
For what it's worth, Aaron isn't too shabby looking either.

I know its only Nebraska but this game is pretty

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

buckeye_baker's picture

Yeah, no complaints about this one. Even if it is Nebraska always nice to see everything click in a conference game. Great start to the B1G season.

LadyBuck's picture

Hey, we can use it to gain confidence as a team before we get into the rest of the Big Ten.

captain obvious's picture

Ilinois will be a challenge Groce has them playing well

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

LadyBuck's picture

I agree. It will definitely be interesting to see how we respond to them. However, one last confidence builder can't hurt that much.

buckeye_baker's picture

Soooo....anyone think Louisville has a shot?

Florida. Sugar Bowl is tonight.

No way, they will be destroyed by the Gators tonight :)

LadyBuck's picture

Oh! In that case, no, I don't think Lousiville has any chance.

johnblairgobucks's picture

I'm hoping Bridgewater plays lights out, and Muschamp acts like his typical buffoon self..

captain obvious's picture

zero not against Urban recruits

Nice to see Trey McDonald getting some quality minutes.  Hope we can get some consistent contribution from him.  I think he's got a ton of potential.

Woah nice block!

Real Happy to hear Thomas say "Thank you, Sir." at the end of that interview. Just nice to see a highly touted, college basketball player, who is well known, and talked about all the time, and is practically a household name, to show respect like that. Just nice to see.

You have to hate losing more than you love winning! GO BUCKS!!
