    Miles Just Punched His Ticket Today

    Here's my thought on this. We have before us no less than 20 games still to be played. Tim Miles will be the coach for this team for all 20 of those games. A lot can and will happen between now the end of the season. By then we will know how this team will have responded going forward from this point, and whether or not Miles was able to get this team going in a positive direction, and building towards a better year next year. If we continue to the have the same problems and continue to have too many players not contributing in any substantial way, then Eichorst may very well decide to let coach go. But that will only happen at the end of the season, and I will support whatever decision is made regarding that. But until then Tim Miles has my support, and what I'm not looking forward to is seeing so many people piling on and calling for Miles to be fired before the season is even over.

    So, Syracuse lost at home today to KenPom #54 Georgetown, falling to 6-4. Their best win is a home win against KenPom #76 Monmouth. Syracuse is 6-4 against the 193rd best SOS Nebraska is 5-5 against the 7th best That is all.

    That is true. However, most of those teams also have a couple upperclassmen that can help them through growing pains. One would have to look at Ohio State last year. Losses to Texas-Arlington and Louisiana Tech at home. They had a bunch of freshmen and sophomores. One junior was on the team. As much as this loss hurts. We have to see how this season unfolds before throwing everyone to the wolves.

    We've seen this game before. UMBC with Doc, Miles had last year with Samford. The real question is where the season goes from here. One game doesn't decide anything.

    Miles saying team had to create its own energy due to the crowd. Ohhh boy, give me a break. That's the last direction I would be going if I'm Miles.

    You gotta give Miles credit. He got his ass firmly planted on the hot seat a week before Christmas. Way to go!

    It might not go well vs. a team with elite guards like KU. Most teams we play won't have that. They've used it effectively vs. teams that don't have players like Mason and Jackson. We're not going to see a lot of teams as talented as that.

    This. Does deciding to fire the coach make it more enjoyable as a fan? Do you really want to give up hope in mid-December?

    It's hard to believe that these guys actually care right now. This looks like a team that's quit on its coach and just doesn't give a shit. I'm disgusted.

    Ohio State probably needs to bench McVeigh, they'll never beat Creighton playing this way.

    wow, miles might officially be on the hot seat. how does glynn not start? he's our second best player and probably the most important player for the future of the team. i don't think anyone expected us to be better than a .500 team this year, but losses like this shouldn't be happening.

    WBB: Game #11 @ Creighton

    Ditto to all of the above. It almost looks like no tape of Creighton was reviewed before the game. Are there no defensive coaches on the staff ? Been saying for weeks...no defense...just put them in a simple zone....right now, we're just not good at man defense. ...still too many turnovers. Creighton is about a .500 team, and they're making us look bad. Have a player or two that will just throw the ball up no matter if it's a good shot or not. Gets the ball in their hands and rarely passes off. Turnover machines....That's got to stop. Exasperating

    This whole team has regressed. We play poor defense, get beat off the dribble, don't guard the 3, can't shoot, have no movement on offense. Just bad basketball right now.

    Fire Miles Talk (complete BS)

    Can't speak for Coz but I'm guessing he's also including the last few years in his thoughts. And by his own admission Miles thought we would be a game or two ahead of where we are at now. The Clemson game could have very easily swung the other way and had that happened most would say we are sitting in good position despite Creighton running circles around us again and our offense looking well...offensive. The Big Ten is not great this year and we matchup well against quite a few of the opponents on our schedule. I look forward to seeing if this team progresses and can come away with 8-10 wins.

    I can agree with you on in-game strategy. At some point though, some of those other things are the players' responsibilities as well. I believe we have good talent, but maybe not the best combinations in spots needed to turn the corner as a team.

    Crowd isn't gonna get much better, I have a hard time believing too many people will be paying to see us (fresh off this loss) play against Southern, during winter break a couple days before the holidays. I'm sure Eichorst will be watching the attendance numbers closely as we get into Big 10 play. Miles seat will get scorching if we can't fill out that beautiful, expensive new arena.

    WBB: Game #11 @ Creighton

    I'm not trying to be negative, but I've watched every single game this year and our defense is absolutely atrocious. There is no kind of intensity at all. It'd be interesting to see the percentage our opponents shoot from 3 bc every team has wide open looks. I'm not sure what the girls do in practice but they're definitely not getting better game by game. Coach Williams and her staff need to be tougher. Period. Idk if that's not her style or if she's holding back bc this is her first year, and also Coach Yori resigning bc she was "hard on her players". I know Nicea actually responds better to tough coaching, that's one of the reasons we chose NU..and she's playing like she's in the fog now too. Better get it together fast!!

    Are we sure it's complete BS? I would say his future at Nebraska is very cloudy at this point. In fact, if I'm Miles I'm not feeling good about being Nebraska's coach next year.

    If you can't defend the 3 against creighton you might as well call it a day. Horrible perimeter defense and ball handling.

    Hope you're right. Obviously, under this staff his defensive abilities will dictate whether he plays or not. I'll be happy if he's above 35% from deep next year.

    The team psychology of changing starters for this one is interesting. If you lose your spot after starting against KU, your teammate gets to start against Gardner Webb and Southern, and looks like a hero in big wins (presumably). A coach has to weigh how his players will react to that. Kidney, care to tell us how you handled it?

    Somebody will take over scoring. This year, Tai is 7.0 PPG more than last year, Watson is 4.0 PPG more than last year, Morrow is scoring 6.0 PPG more than last year. That is 17 PPG that we lost with Shields. We don't stop scoring because we lose players. Although at times it may seem like it. Who knows? By the end of the year, Gill could be that guy.

    *UCLA 102 Michigan 84 - That UCLA game is as loose as I've seen us play all year. Really wish we could go into games with the nothing to lose attitude. You can see a huge difference between that game and say Creighton (every year) and Va Tech.

    Scouting Gardner Webb

    Jack has been playing the 3 and has had quick players chasing/defending him. What happens if he starts sharing time at the 4? If this happens (not all the time, but on occasion) will he have an "easier" time getting off his shots? I will sort of respond to this myself. It may help, BUT, he has been getting open looks and he simply is missing these open shots. He has to get the flippin negativity out of his head and perhaps the shot will return.
