@Trashman: Yeah that's a really scary game, I think. You're either looking at a desperate team that's winless in the conference, or a confident team coming off a win against a really quality opponent.
@Trashman: Not sure on how or why it happened, but foot injuries are so delicate. We'll find out more tonight on Tim Miles' radio show and tomorrow at media availability, I would imagine.
@JC79: Don't know if it's "big" trouble, but it hurts. Morrow obviously did so much for the Huskers when it came to defense and rebounding. You don't just replace someone like that.
@Trashman: Yeah it will be interesting to see how Nebraska tries to play. I wonder if we see more zone defense to protect the younger guys/weaker defenders who are going to have to play.
@JC79: He'll help. Sounds like he's a really good shooter, and getting him into a college weight lifting program will help a ton. I bet he gets plenty of opportunities next year.
@MK: Ha, that's a good question. It stings, for sure. But we have to wait and see how things play out. As Nebraska has already shown this year, I don't think we can rule anything out.
@Sam: IF IF IF is a perfect way of putting it. If NU can find away to win 3 of the next 4, I think we can seriously start talking about NCAA Tournament chances. But obviously that's a long way off. If I had to guess, Roby or Jack McVeigh gets the starting spot. McVeigh is a liability on defense, but he at least has some experience.
@Trashman: You're right on. Northwestern hit a ton of huge shots, and those threes will deflate any crowd. They seemed to have a real good sense for when they needed to hit a shot or get make a big play.
@Sam: 11-7 in the conference gets you to 17-13, which is probably an NIT team. Now, if they win a couple games in the conference tourney, things change. But I would expect this team is in the postseason one way or another, barring a complete meltdown.
