    I think he is a good kid but went to a smaller school not far from where I live. Positive is he is almost 7 ft. Negatives: skinny, slow, can't shoot, can't handle the ball. Other than that, perfect for hoiball.

    Sounds like a good kid but not a good fit for what Hoiberg wants to do:

    https://www.omaha.com/huskers/mens-basketball/no-longer-in-nebraska-s-plans-center-brady-heiman-enters/article_34ee8ff5-6c8c-5f80-b08d-6b1e93e80875.html

    I saw they have two scholarships left to give, including this one, and in a different article, want to get a big B1G bruiser at center, that they need this for the B1G style of play (quoting Lutz I think on this).

    Heiman, at 6-foot-11, 215 pounds, and maybe not a great 3-point shooter, is probably not what they want there.

    The real news is that scholarship athletes at Nebraska have final exams!

    You guys are looking at this all wrong. Basically all Fred did was say "hey, if you are worried about that accounting final don't worry about it because you probably wont be going to college here next year anyway. So mail that ***** in."

    Ummmmm. I know that the idea of college basketball being amateur is ridiculous. However, the players have a class schedule, and coaches, even ones that were just hired, know them.

    If kids were allowed to be eligible immediately there would be 5632 kids transfer every year and it would be a poop show. You think the Blue Bloods have a leg up now that rule would kill everyone else.

    I think everything would be fine, the blue bloods can only have so many schlorships players anyway.

    Has anyone considered the players he is signing? If this were my coach I'd be OK with shooing a few out the door. If fact....looking at the players he is bringing in I'd be ecstatic.

    A 6-8 guard that shoots 43% from 3. https://www.omaha.com/huskers/mens-basketball/nebraska-basketball-lands-graduate-transfer-matej-kavas/article_b556c90b-a875-5586-8dda-47b8dc56d229.html

    And Cam Mack, who averaged 19.1 points and 7.5 assists this season at Salt Lake Community College https://www.omaha.com/huskers/mens-basketball/fred-hoiberg-may-have-found-his-point-guard-in-new/article_2f045fac-dfd6-5d15-83c8-6cd92856472d.html

    Was Jimmy Butler right about Fred Hoiberg?



    I think he said a little bit more than "no" in that clip.

    College basketball is already a poop show. Coaches can leave whenever they want even though they are under contract. Players should be able to do the same. I don't like it either, but it's just the way things are and is only being fair to players.

    I just love that the kid is a Nebraska native. Suck on that Nebraskans, Hoiberg just f@cked over one of your own.

    Hoiberg has a graduate transfer named Haanif Cheatham.

    He's looking to sign two more named Dewey and Howe. ;)
