Offseason fun - How would you rate Barry Collier as coach here?

Recommended Posts

In 2006, with what should have been a pretty good roster with some solid returnees and a decent recruiting class, the top returning player showed up 30 pounds overweight after an offseason regimen of doobies and Big Macs.

 

The program was adrift.  No one was in charge.

Recruiting is 90% of what makes a good college basketball coach.  

 

Collier's writing was on the wall when our most valuable coach on the staff, Scott Spinelli, left.  

 

Collier had all of the charisma and charm of a loaf of bread.  His ceiling was NIT forever.

Anyone else just hoping that nobody responds to this so they don't have to see Barry Collier name anymore?  I hated his coaching and I really hated his horseshit NIT selection committee chair job, that nearly had us missing that tourney as well.

He must have enjoyed his time here.  He did attend a game at the new arena.  Wonder what he thought?

 

I think he was ok.  Average for Nebraskaball.

 

It would be interesting to know his thoughts on building the Nebraska program.  You look at Butler basketball today and he is the guy that started it.  Then went back and hired Brad Stevens.  Then Chris Holtmann.  Now LaVall Jordan.

 

Seems like he was trying to build basketball in the state.
