Not sure how I feel about this decision. Oh well, he's part of the team now. Welcome to Hoiberg's Hoopsters Teddy.

I worked at Boys Town when he was there. Phenomenal athlete but at that time tended to not be much of a team player and struggled to get along with coaches. The young man is known to have quite the temper on and off the court. I know a little bit more but it's not worth going into detail on a public forum, nothing serious, just that he could have received more support in the past to help him out.

Saw him play Tuesday evening. wncc down 7 at half, down by 11 at times in the 2nd half. Allen looked slow and maybe sick in 1st half. Took over the game in the 2nd half - hit 4 long range (and effortless) 3's in succession. I watched the opposing coach and he was at a loss as to how to stop Allen. On the next possession Allen was ready to fire again but 2 guys were in his face. Glad to see he faked the shot and passed to an open teammate at the top of the key, quick shot and another 3 for wncc. Opponents foolishly fouled Allen in the 2nd half and he was lights out at the charity line. Allen is playing better defense now (but not up to Huggins WVA standards) so it appears he's trying. I still contend Hoiberg will be "on" Allen a lot to make him conform to what Fred demands. Offensive talent is there, I'm still not convinced he's the 100% teammate you want, but I do hope I'm wrong.

Awesome, thanks for the eyeball-based info! I hope Teddy holds it together. Special talent, hope he can become a good person too.

Thanks for sharing this. I remember watching him at West Virginia. He would make some pretty egregious mistakes defensively. I can see Thuggins and Teddy clashed. Some were typical freshman mistakes, not being in the right spot, etc. Many were efforts though, and that was concerning.

It doesn’t matter now. Players and humans grow. Teddy is a Husker and if he has his head bolted on straight when he gets to Lincoln, he’s going to write his own ending. If he does what Fred asks, there is no way he isn’t putting up some good stats next year.
