RE: Game thread nebraska
I think Swing will definitely play more of a complementary role this year. Frazier, Washington, and Rucker seem to be handling the heavy lifting very well. Swing, Foz, and Williams have all been great in their complementary roles. Would love to see Mehinti, Purifoy, and Watts get some more minutes off the bench, so we can take advantage of our depth and to hopefully prevent our main guys from wearing down or getting injured.

Not against teams like New Mexico and Nebraska. They should play in several of our home OOC games. Then maybe they can show that they deserve to be in the conference rotation.

Was mainly curious about Riddeau because I thought he was supposed to be a 3pt specialist. I think if we shoot even better from the perimeter it's going to add another element and make us that much tougher to beat.

I don't remember the words he used but something that Haase said when he was going over the individual players before the season started made me think Rideau wouldn't play much.

Riddeau must just be totally horrible defensively. Or can't grasp the offense. Or something. Because UAB's pre-game shootaround is right in front of me. And his shot is mesmerizing. He just wanders around the three-point line burying 3s with a smoothness that makes you think he hasn't missed since middle school. And you'd think somebody with that kind of shot (even unguarded) could find his way on the court. The fact that he can't means something else is dramatically deficient.

Yeah, I think he said something about taking some time to adjust. Kinda odd for a JUCO to be buried so far on the bench. Is he gonna be red-shirted?

I saw him in at least 1 game this year and he did look sorta lost out there and his shot wasnt hitting the bottom of the net either. Dont know how much you can play and still redshirt???

The redshirt rule used to be "No more than 10% of the games or no more than 10% of the total minutes played." But it has been a couple of days since I read the rule.
