    but HE HAD TO KNOW when he choose the blue jays that Nembhard was going to be the main PG. i suspect that he is pretty happy. he is getting to contribute a LOT to a very good team
    At first glance I thought that might be a nickname for a certain Midco analyst.

    Regardless, it's the inspiration for the latest Dairy Bar concoction -- Nem-hard flavor ice cream, consisting of chunks of necatarines with the consistency of tailgate lot gravel. Those brave enough to "take it to the hoop" and finish their dessert are rewarded with Newittian quips at the bottom of the pint or the inside of the cone's wrapper (waffle bowl fans will get the proverbial air ball).

    i understand that i often say i am going to try to leave a topic and get drawn back to it. i guess that is because, I LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE JACKS and if a topic i do not particularly WANT to talk about is the one with the activity here, i probably get drawn back

    BUT this is very tangentially a jackrabbits topic. as i have said a lot, i wish Baylor the best!!! but i dont want to watch bluejay bball and i dont want to talk about it. i am even mildly annoyed writing this much about a team who is not the jacks and a player who is no longer a jack

    that said i suspect that he is happy and also probably feels that his role is still evolving. you know he was not the same baylor who left brookings the day he arrived. he evolved. and i believe his role with the jays will continue to grow and evolve. i mean he played plenty of minutes in early games but did not score, now his scoring is going up. anyway I WISH HIM THE BEST and i think this is gonna work for him but i also think if you add him to the jacks, the jacks are a borderline top 25 team. as i said before right now it seems like the jacks have a bunch of really good NUMBER 2 guys. looking for a number one

    baylor would be the obvious number one and everyone would fit into a very comfortable role

    that said, i have NO INFO!! i am totally guessing, but i VERY MUCH think that once Hendo knew that baylor was not coming back that he spoke to him and to his old coach about putting a kid he cares about into a good spot. if you watch just a little you see similarities between creighton offense and defense and the jacks offense and defense. baylor looks a lot like a round peg in a round hole. i will leave it at that.......

    Well, Baylor got a haircut, a real grown-up suit, and is helping lead the Bluejays to an undefeated 5-0 mark along with a #10 ranking. Through these games, he's #2 on the team with 26.8 minutes/game played, #4 in scoring at 10.5 ppg, and is actually leading the team in rebounds with 9.4/game. 20-48 (41.7%) from the field, and 13-31 (41.9%) from 3pt range. Stats taken off the Creighton website.

    Creighton just beat #21 Texas Tech tonight 76-65, and goes right into playing #9 Arkansas tomorrow night (does that sound familiar anyone???). After that they have #4 Texas, and a couple games in conference against currently ranked #20 UConn. No one else ranked in the Big East at this point.

    just saw that creighton are ranked 1 in big east and think baylor pushed them over the edge in those rankings. 1 of the best transfers on the market and he fits into their starting rotation. looking forward to watching them esp against ND in their second game of the ncaab season.

    Getting more exposure doesn't necessarily translate to a better shot in the NBA. Going to the title game with TT got Mooney 5 NBA games. Umude didn't get invited to any of the pre-draft camps after playing at Arkansas. Time will tell a year from now with Obanor, but I doubt he will have much of a shot at the NBA.
    I agree.The most successful, recent NBA player from the Summit League probably is John Konchar, who stuck with Purdue Fort Wayne and now plays with the Memphis Grizzlies.

I'm not convinced that his transfer there improved Scheierman's long-term basketball future any. He'll pick up some NIL money at Creighton, but I don't think his path to the NBA will be any easier. The SEC is full of NBA wannabes. Standing out in the crowd won't be easy.

    (Correction: Creighton plays in Big East, not the SEC.)

    Two round mock draft right after the lottery ... no BS in this version.
    He wasn't include in the 7 players from the G-League camp who got invited to the combine. That likely sealed the deal concerning the draft.

    I think the number of people that are upset with Baylor are in the minority. This isn't so much about what he did vs. the system the NCAA has created in my mind.

    I don't blame him for taking the money and trying to raise is draft stock. In this life you have to do what you think is best for yourself.
    This is where I sit.

    I hope that the recruits and parents of recruits look at the majority of the fan base. If you can find a fan base that does not have some fans that go overboard, good luck.
    Thee majority are not happy with the NCAA (or Supreme Court" in my case). They are the ones that are changing college sports into semi pro sports. At least the NCAA should make the players sit out a year so it is not just an utter free for all.

    I wish Baylor was still at SDSU because I think SDSU would have won a game in the NCAA tournament with him. It will be a lot more difficult without him. The five new players coming in would have made SDSU better (even with the loss of Douglass Wilson). I do not know if SDSU will be better with the loss Wilson and Baylor.
    We will see how it turns out.

    Box score from the first game
    The game is on youtube and can be found here. Baylor first entered with 14mins left in the first half (subbed out with 10:14 left) and then again at 6:07 (until the end of the half). I only had time to watch the first half, so here's a rough breakdown of some of the plays (all times game time and not video time and sorry for the spoilers)

    12:55 travel on first touch in the corner
    12:31 steal into overthrown cross-court pass that his teammate had to grab at the baseline and threw it away resulting in a turnover
    10:54 nice quick pass from the wing to a wide open guy in the corner who missed the 3

    He maybe had < 5 actual touches in the half-court offense in the first half including the two already mentioned, and the others were just passing the ball around to keep it moving / passing to the PG. He was waiting on the wings otherwise for passes for that never came. Three point specialists / catch and shoot players like Creighton product Kyle Korver obviously have their place in the league, but I guess I was hoping for a bit more action since everyone at the camp has the same goal in mind. Looks like all of his contributions outside of the steal / first turnover came in the second half.

    On the defensive side in the 1st half, the players he guarded took three shots, one made three at the top of the key out of two attempted and then another missed shot in the low post. He got called for a foul on an and-one in the paint. He was coming over to help.

    Like many athletes do when they move on? Did he tweet anything out like that that wasn't posted here?

    Just curious, because that I think goes a long way, in leaving on a positive and generally positive feedback from fans and players etc. A thank you letter is never a bad idea especially in the fast paced and ever changing world of college sports.

    Maybe they’ll see the high expectations for this program.
    Maybe they’ll see generally speaking a high level of gratitude, respect and affection for the players.
    Maybe they’ll see a reasonable board unlike a program not to be named to the north who has a thread 286 pages long talking about it’s head coach.
    Maybe they’ll see the disappointment from the fan base who is losing one of its best players.
