THIS IS THE THING THAT MAKES ME SO FRUSTRATED! This is maybe the most athletic team Nebraska has ever had - UNL finally has the athletes. But they don't know what to do with themselves. They do need to hit shots, but they have to have something to fall back on when shots aren't falling to get easier shots until the harder ones fall again. If we can only have a system OR athletes, I guess I would rather have the athletes as UNL does now, because they win some games from out-ath-a-lete-ing the other team. I would really like to be able to take the next step of having a system that works with personnel.I get what you are saying and do agree with it. You still have to be able to knock down some shots even when it is out of system, or when their is no system.
There was some pretty good looks at times last night and they couldn’t buy a bucket. They just don’t shoot very well a lot of the time. I am ok if you want to put that on Miles.
With that being said, how many times in say the last 20 years has Nebraska had a consistently solid shooting team?
Nebraska always seems to have quite a few athletic players, for the most part they are way more athletic than Wisconsin. But they are not really better basketball players. Again if you want to put on Miles and a lack of development I am ok with that. I think those players show up at Wisconsin more polished than the guys Nebraska is getting.
Insert picture of Sam Kinnison yelling here... I'm frustrated. I don't think I want too much, but maybe I'm not realistic. I'm not owed anything by the athletes or the university, but I do want the best for them and by extension me.
