So, you are hoping we fail? Weird. Best case Miles pulls a rabbit out of his ass and wins. But, if that doesn't happen I'm really hoping the next guy succeeds. I'm not going to wish he fails because of the guy who hired him. That's odd. 

Did I say that? Odd because I don't remember saying that.

Maybe someone with eyes will put Ed at the 4.  I would guess that has something to do with this decision.  The writing was on the wall for Ed to play the 5 all four years here.  Complete incompetence how he was used last season.  I don't blame him.  

 

That said, I'm by no means sunshine pumping, but Jordy-Jacobson-Copeland-Roby as our front court next year doesn't send me into panic mode AT ALL.  Sorry.

So 99% of the time, when a kid transfers out, I blame the kid came the coach. 

 

 But go look back at the things we said about the kid when we recruited him: lunch pail guy... not on social media... considers himself a Nebraska kid... parents' alma mater... 

 

To me, everything he did he confirmed what we said. A Nebraska kid with Nebraska parents who started last year and was going to start this year found reason to leave, sit out a year, and play elsewhere. Not playing time, not a overbearing dad, not an ego... to me, this one points to the coach. And that's unfortunate. 

 

*caveat* I have no inside knowledge, and no idea what's going on in Ed's head. I'm venting.

That's what it sounds like to me. But, I'll take your word for it. But, like I said...I'll take my chances with Eichorst getting lucky rather than keeping things as is. Unfortunate as another rocky offseason is really putting a damper on next season.

Dickie V thinks there is underground recruiting going on.  I would have no doubt about something like that.  A little birdy gets in a 18-19 YO kids ear and tells him something different than what he is hearing and POOF.  

 

So sad the number of transfers.  It's all about ME ME ME now days.  Rarely do you find a true TEAM player.

Bingo. He and many others like him, a surprising number, in our fanbase, hate TO. Sad.

Did I say that? Odd, because I don't remember saying that. In fact, I think I said I had zero issues with the Pelini and Miles hire at the time.

See, it is posts like this that I take with a grain of salt.  If you know something, share it.  No need to beat around the bush.

I don't need to share anything. I'm just saying don't be surprised when there are more that follow

Except of course whenever you talk about a poor performing coach you make it a point to mention TO. I'm sure you don't mean anything by it now do you :D

Like you are doing in regards to Williams/Riley? With that said...Miles has performed poorly for the last few years and I don't remember bringing up Osborne. I'm sorry that you are offended that Osborne failed on his hires but it's the truth. TBD on Miles of course...but, it's not looking good. I'll gladly admit the same if Eichorst hires flame out.

Unlike you and your TO hatred, I've very open about my dislike for Herr Eichorst.

I think I need a break from #Nebrasketball for a little bit lol. Took all the air out of my sail.

 

Might be the best thing for everyone involved. We all should take a nice, long break from it.

You just said I was very open in regards to Osborne.  Now you are saying I'm not? You are talking in circles. But, I won't go back and forth with you. Osborne had multiple failed hires. That doesn't make me hate the guy but I'm not going to put my red glasses on either.  Obviously, hiring the right guy is not an exact science.
