Isnt one of the best players from the state of Nebraska coming to ISU next year?? I know if you are a Nebraska kid to be on the football team is a HUGE deal, I guess its not the same for basketball.
Nebraska will not surpass ISU for long. And that sentence was ended with what? A period.
Okay you see this is what bugs me to death, "Can we say Nebraska lost its best three-point shooter and best passer (Lucca Staiger)? " my question for you is can you honestly say that lucca is our best shooter or best passer, what are u basing ur conclusions on? The only good thing that came out of the lucca situation is the fact that some cyclone fans have another excuse when we are bad.
Sadler Redshirted the four players for a couple of reasons. First, needed time to develop them more. It's Sadler's hope that players with 3-5 years of experience in the program will have some sort of shot to hang with the Kansas's of the world. It's almost a Mid-Major view of building a program.
Secondly, by RSing these players (and with the new recruits coming in), it will even out the classes nicely for the future. This year Maric is the only senior, so next year NU will have
4 SRs (1 walk on)
4 JRs (1 walk on)
4 FR (1 walk on)
Also, NU has had a winning record each of the Sadler's two years. Not a big deal, but with the lack of talent he inherited, he's done a great job.
Hopefully, NU can get the new arena thing figured out soon. I haven't seen a team play harder than NU yet. This NU fan doesn't want to see Doc go anywhere.
Rmember that Doc showed up in Aug and Eik was set where he was ogoing. See who gets Jerrell Crayton of Bellevue East next year. He almost singlehandedly won the big class state championship with 73 points and 43 boards in 3 games. He may grow to 6-8 from 6-6 since he has size 17 shoes and is young.
At Creighton, Dana Altman has his best group of young players ever and will load with the two other two good players from the state outside of Wes.
From some of your posts I've wondered if you were a secret Hawk fan. But now I think we might have an answer. You're really a WM lover and apoligest. No matter what coach we had you would have been tearing him down. Morgan is gone and no one has hired him which may mean that others were not so sure he was a great coach. He's gone and won't be back so LET IT GO!
