What evidence supports Tubby has the best roster?
I didn't say he had the best roster. I said he had the deepest (true - he has 10 guys avg 9 min per game and regularly plays a 12 man rotation) and said he has the most experience. He has senior leaders and the majority of his rotation are seniors and juniors. He also has a quality mix of guards (Hollins is a stud) wings (Williams) and bigs (Mbakwe). I'd say that combo of balance and experience would be a very successful recipe for any of the good Big Ten coaches.
Mbakwe's "injury' looked somewhat suspicious.
Wait..............nebraska is spending 180 million dollars on a new Basketball arena??? For that shit team??
Think of all the farms in Nebraska they could help!
If he did do what your insinuating then it was the smartest decision of the entire game in a game filled with dumb decisions by both teams, Mbwake was a 60% foul shooter I think? Better to pass it off to a teammate. Unfortunately Williams couldn't convert on the 2nd.

Williams was at 65%. Not too much better.
If the guy doesn't want the ball with the game on the line, then Tubby shouldn't have drawn up the play to throw him the ball with 1.8 seconds remaining.
Nobody said Tubby was some sort of basketball Messiah.
Don't know what the oddsmakers were thinking with o/u at 125 for minny/wisky, just made an easy $100 on the under
Please, give us more expert picks after the games are over.
Ok, will do
Good for them. Shows they are serious about building a quality basketball program instead of being content on being a bottom feeder and making the Big Ten look bad because football is king.

Nebraska athletics is drowning in cash. Their seat fees for FB are the biggest in the B1G ($3500 and $2500 per seat - add that up....) hint: Memorial Stadium holds 80,000 fans.

Nίκη για MSU
Tubby always plays 10 guys, regardless of whether he has 10 guys worthy of being on the court. I've always thought that was one of his weaknesses as a coach.
81k actually. Which is not a big difference in seating numbers, but 1k x $2000/ticket is pretty substantial.
Minnesota went 0-2 this week (and lost 4 straight), KSU went 0-2 this week, and if NC State loses to UNC they will also have gone 0-2 this week. I'd imagine all three would drop out of the rankings. That would make UM 0-1 against currently ranked teams I know, I know, obsession. Just occurred to me though that we could have a #1 team that hasn't beat a ranked team...
Wow, Minnesota got robbed. Apparently Wisconsin violated the shot clock on their last basket but it wasn't reviewable.
Replay really needs to be expanded in basketball. Coaches need to be given a challenge and everything clock related should be reviewable in the last minute.
I wondered if the TV crew was at least going to take a look at it. The shot clock was clearly at 0 when the ball went through, but not sure what it was when he released.
Same thing happened to Vanderbilt at home this year against UK and it was not even close. Noel shot that ball with under 18 seconds to play in the game. If the shot clock was allowed to still run it would have said -3 when he released the shot, but it is not reviewable. They can only review the last shot at the end of the game clock like they did for us last year on Evan's made 3 at Wisconsin. Vanderbilt ended up losing by 2.
Yeah, Wisky stole one.
On the tv replay the ball was clearly out of his hands before it hit 0.
That still shows that the ball is in his hand while the on the court shot clock reads 0. Here's an even clearer picture that points out the on the court clock and the ESPN clock.
The ball doesn't need to go through the basket at 0, just leave shooters hands
Should've bet the unc game, getting murdered by ncsu right now
We know the rules, the ball is still in his hand at 0.
