    Who is Tim Miles

    I'll take this one. He & the staff are meticulous teachers and game-planners, who demand maximum effort & attention to detail. There is nice balance between those expectations and acknowledging and/or critiquing performance. That creates a standard that, in turn, creates pride and improvement in team. That's how I've seen it. I've always been impressed and even motivated myself by being able to hang around a lot. Believe me, the vibe is spot-on.

    Modus Operandi: He's transferring to a D-League squad but intends to slow play the decision so he doesn't have to train with the team.

    Next season starters?

    A bit off topic, but I noticed Maddie Simon was one of 27 Nebraska Scholar Athletes that received the Sam Foltz 27 Hero Leadership Awards. Also, Emily Wood was one of 5 athletes that received an Outstanding Scholar Award. Congratulations Ladies. You represent us well.

    The Isaac Copeland watch is pretty neat. However, I really like the Isaac Copeland decanter set.

    This is a total rebuild project. Those take time. The Yori grand finale ensured that any momentum from her work wouldn't carry over: not the reputation nor the brand. Scandal can kill programs. It's why departments are so secretive about everything. It was a nice run with Yori, but, like the football team, you can't just flip a switch and get your best days back. Give it a few years. If you care about the sport, support the team. If only winning matters, become a UConn fan.

    Tai might go down as the biggest bust to must have in Husker History. The work that this kid put in deserves more basketball. Thank you Tai for everything. You embody the work ethic that I wish all players had.

    Leigha Brown is 'N'

    Contrary to what others have said or believe, I actually like how the 2018 recruiting class is coming together. Sure we need a big girl or two but that's what we need as of right now for this upcoming season. As far as I can tell this 2018 class has touched on the positions that will be critical two years from now and going forward from that season. We got one of our future big's out of Minnesota in Kayla Mershon 6'3 ProspectNation has her at a 4-Star and the 86th best player in the class. ESPN has her pegged as the 9th best post this coming year. Ashlyn Verbeek 6'2 (whom I'm really high on and many east of the Missouri River are now saying she could most likely the best player to come out of Iowa next season,) is playing with the All Iowa Attack this summer and is getting exposed to recruiting services, thus ESPN has given her a 4-Star rating and has her ranked now as the 5th best post in the nation and 50th best player in the whole class. ProspectNation has finally got her ranked as 3-1/2 Star Leigha Brown 6'1 hasn't been in front of too many recruiting services but from videos I've seen she's deadly from behind the arc. And her coaches are stressing that she's an excellent rebounder. For a team that has slipped to dismal debts lately, those three alone should come into NU in pretty good shape and improve the team going forward. I think there's room for another verbal in this class, but we'll just have to wait and see.

    I don't think whether she can be trusted or not should have anything to do with it. These are the decisions any head coach and their staff make when you're at a power 5 division 1 school. Not everyone will agree with them but they're trying to do what's best for their program.

    B1G Protected Rivalries

    I really dislike Texas. It's their attitude, that and the fact we didn't beat them very often in most sports. For our younger posters, who weren't born back in the mid 1990's when the Big Eight conference was kind enough to let 4 schools from the failed SWC into our league, here's the skinny. On almost every vote when it came to determining conference rules and guidelines, whenever it was Texas vs Nebraska, the other seven Big Eight schools always sided with Texas. At that time, they couldn't beat NU in football, so they decided to bring us down legislatively. Texas is definitely a villain. The 7 remaining Big 8 schools, especially Missouri and OU, are pussies. This crap has been building up inside of me for over 20 years.

    Hello? It's too quiet in here

    Does he wear glasses? On a more serious note, Zach Copeland, the well-known JUCO transfer who signed with Illinois St, was out of San Francisco. Perhaps we saw someone on the game film when scouting him.

    Tai career is the DVD you play to every incoming freshman, not to tuck n turn tail, not to quit when times are hard but to work like crazy on your craft, and build a legacy at a university not just a nice career. When I think of Husker Basketball (I'm 28) i think of Belcher, Lue, Maric, Anderson, Shields, Uber, and now Webster. Hopefully the players we have now we'll strive to be among them

    Boy I really hope you are joking! Here is a laundry list of Omaha Mexican food places that are better than weak ass Julio's. Hell El Bee's and OJ's are better than Julio's Cilantro's is the best "Chain" Mexican in Omaha Abelardo's (Fast Food) Lina's (Fast Food) Howards Charro Victor's Guaca Maya Don Gaby's El Rancho Azteca And just about every restaurant south of 24th and L Street Edit: Also want to give a shout out to Jacobo's(Grocery Store) because you can buy Carnita's by the pound there and their chips and salsa are cheap and delicious!

    Yep. We've had talent the last few years, but not been able to do anything with it. Not sure if that's because we can't retain players long enough for them to develop within the system, or if it's because of bad chemistry and lack of leadership. Probably a combination of all of the above. And adding a talented player with commitment issues and only one year of eligibility doesn't appear to help us from a development, chemistry, or leadership standpoint. Before taking Akoy, I'd want to sit down with him and say "Look, I really think you could help our team out next year...maybe even be a starter. But playing here is a privilege, not a right. If all you get is 5 minutes a game, would you still be willing to give 100% in practice everyday? Would you help lead our young players, even if they're ahead of you on the depth chart? Does coming home to play for your state's flagship institution mean something to you?" And if he can look me in the eye, say yes to all three questions, and convince me of his sincerity...well, then welcome aboard Akoy.

    I am not being argumentative here just stating a quick point. Rachel, Grace, Maddie and Darien are all as tall and three cases taller than Kelsey Griffen, Corey Montgomery, Jordan Hooper and Anna Deforge. It is not always about how big you are, it's sometimes how big you play.

    I'm sure Miles would say he has made some mistakes, but what I've learned about life is you do everything right and sometimes things still don't go your way. Doing things the right way is no garantee of success but not doing things the right way almost always garentees failure.

    Jacobson Gone?

    Jacobson is better than people give him credit for and we'll miss him more than people lead on right now. We have little PF depth right now and that's with a healthy eligible Copeland. And that's not a given. Jacobson would've still played 20+ mpg this year

    Jacobson Gone?

    I don't know any of the circumstance and maybe he had a real reason, but I'm a Nebraska fan so my take he refused to stick around and work for a spot. He would definitely have been a help next year but all signs pointed to less time on the floor for him.

    Nebraska VS Penn State Championship Game

    Also can we take a minute to appreciate Erstad. If im correct this was the mans first HC job so obviously theres gonna be some growing pains and time for him to make adjustments, critiques, etc to his coaching style/plan. Plus lets not forget the last 2-3 yrs of the Anderson era we were a pretty bad baseball club, so its not like he took over the baseball juggernaut of the early 2000s. Heres to regional appearances in 3/4 yrs and a Big Ten Conference Championship. Lets add to it next week.

    In other words: BTN will have crews out there all day to broadcast a big 10 championship deciding series but the first two won't be on television because BTN needs to show Maryland Penn St football from 2014 followed by a show about sandwiches.

    Thomas Allen is N

    We've only had six freshmen ever score in double figures. Three were the all time leading scorers in program history (Hoppen, Fort, Piatkowski), two went on to not average double figures over their careers (Jake Muhleisen, Ryan Anderson), and one was the biggest flame-out in program history who came back 40 lbs heavier his second year after an offseason regimen of magic herbs and cheeseburgers (Joe McCray).
