    Fire Miles Talk (complete BS)

    It's a good effort, @Buglem but probably worthless trying to talk any sense into @nustudent. He gets this way...has been for many many years and I don't think he will ever change. It's just a cycle with him. - whines and cries about replacing a coach at right about the 5 year mark, gets really pissy and defensive when anyone replies - gets all excited about potential replacement coaches, whines and pisses and moans when none of them are chosen - finally gets on board with new coach and seems actually positive about the program for a few months - disappears for 4 years from the message board Rinse...repeat. It's really just a cycle of negativity with him, despite his promises of being positive "when there's something to be positive about"....here's a hint, with him, there never is. He'll ONLY make the effort to post when the team is down. Now, having said this, I'm not casting judgement here...he is what he is, and it's his life and this is a free forum where one can freely express one's opinion. But yeah, there's only two things that can happen to shut him up in this phase of the cycle. Winning games, or replacing the coaching staff. Preferably the latter.

    Great Thread and Comments from everyone (at least as they pertain to the Huskers and WBB program ). I think we should all be grateful that Nicea re-affirmed her commitment to Nebraska, indeed All of the freshmen who re-affirmed, even though each one had been formally released after the coaching change. Despite the disappointing season to date, from the results on the floor so far from the incoming class, along with those who will become eligible starting next season and next year's commits, the future appears bright. I expect we will see better team discipline next season. Losing can be a big motivator (if it isn't you may have the wrong players). And next year today's freshmen will be more experienced and in a better position to exert leadership. Peer pressure may be even more important in getting the best out of your teammates than coaching exhortations.

    I don't think the issues are any deeper than injuries. Give us Morrow on the last plays of each the Ohio St and Rutgers game and the chances of us pulling down a defensive rebound are significantly higher. We are more than likely 11-8 (5-2) without a care in the world.

    i'm not sure what your source is, but adidas will absolutely make him a custom shoe that fits. they do it all the time for 7 footers that have massive feet. i'm beginning to think ed just has bad feet and is blaming it on adidas. ed just needs to take as much time off as he can until he's healthy. sadly there isn't a whole lot to play for until the B1G tourney.

    Coach Williams didn't even come out for her radio post game today. What does that tell you? Michigan is a fine team but my goodness there was a lot of dribbling and standing around today. I can't figure out if they don't know how to run the offense or defense or if its lack of effort in some spots? Michigan was so much quicker than us it was scary.

    The frustration is that we are in every game. The frustration is that we seem to be right on the cusp of something big. The frustration is with the loss of these close games when everyone can recognize that we are only a few plays each game from being really, really good. The frustration IS NOT with the talent, effort, coaching or lack of a future. So as frustrated as I am, for as disappointed I am; I know, I really know that our future is bright. I am not trying to show a direct correlation, but in 1989-90 our record sucked(10-18), but you could see the talent. We then won a school-record 26 games, with only eight losses, in 1990-91. We are soooo very close this year, can next year be the turn around year???

    I think there are four players this year...that losing any of them makes it much more difficult to win Morrow Watson Jacobsen Webster Morrow and Jacobsen..because they complement each other so well...both benefit by having the other down low...both get rebounds and put backs..because both are doing their jobs. there are times when morrow gets a rebound and scores, but the hard work to get that board was done by jacobsen...and vice versa.

    No way you should even discuss firing Miles this year. He has been building up for this year and the next two so we should let him follow thru. This year was messed up by White leaving and now our only real inside offensive threat getting hurt. I know it is not popular but if we have White and a healthy Ed we would be in the tournament this year, I really believe that. Just having Ed probably gets us to 5-2 right now this year in the B10 and probably on track for some sort of post season play. Unfortunately the depth right now are Frosh and that is hard in the BIG10 unless they are one and done types that we are not going to get here. They have much more talent than anytime since Nee but they need to learn how to win and that is not easy. The IU and MD wins show we can play with anyone right now but we have to do it consistently. I love Horne / Roby's upside but they were lost yesterday for sure and Jake would be a great guy coming off the bench but he is really our only inside guy right now and that is not good. I expect the frosh to make jumps like this years Sophs made and then we will have depth next year if something happens. Only weak spot I see is PG we need a back up for Glynn.

    In Sadler's last two years, we were losing a bunch of conference games by 30+ points. It wasn't just the number of losses, it was the fact that those losses were flat out embarrassing due to our talent deficiencies. There was no hope for improvement and for that reason Doc clearly needed to go. That is not the same situation that we find ourselves in today.

    I would disagree that he is our "most" important player. To me that is Watson - we would really struggle without Glynn and ultimately the team tends to rise and fall as he does. Webster is clearly critical as well That said Morrow is certainly a very important player to this team - and may be the "most" important at least in terms of getting the team to play with intensity. Something that has been missing at times during the latest stretch.

    I would disagree with this. I think we are clearly better this year than last year. Record doesn't show it but schedule is much tougher than last year. Beyond that just watching the team play I think it is clear and that is true despite the loss of what were clearly our two best players on last year's team. I agree with you that we definitely waited too long to get rid of Sadler. But that is because we were trending down as a program during his tenure. We tried to hide that then by making the non-conference schedules easier and easier during that time -but people watching the team could see it. I think the opposite is true - there have been peaks and valleys in the process but overall the trend has been positive in Mile's tenure. We caught fire in his 2nd year and overperformed for a stretch which was very exciting and fun -but I think actually set us back the next season - partly because of the unrealistic expectations it created. While it has not been a smooth path the trend is upward and in that situation I think it is foolhardy to replace the coach and start over. Patience is a virtue that is missing all too often in todays fans.

    Oh no I wasn't necessarily saying Coach Amy's style of coaching is "bad". Just saying that I'd like her to be a little tougher on Nicea. Just little things I notice - because I know my daughter - that would allow her to get more out of Nicea. Things that the average fan doesn't pick-up on because they see all the other things she does so well. I'm not going to say them out loud bc then you guys would be watching the games going, "Oh yeah she does do that!" Lol. But if we weren't confident in Coach Amy, and if Nicea didn't absolutely love this team I wouldn't even comment on these posts bc I'd know we didn't plan on being lifetime Huskers. I really appreciate having this forum to listen to all the different perspectives and support! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Regrettably, not so sure if many of the old school hard nose coaches can exist much longer in today's women's game. It only seems to take one whiner, and schools out for the coach. (unless your winning big, and in the Top 10, and the AD and Chancellor are happy) Anyway, Actual...Coach Williams is in a little of a predicament right now and needs every body she can get on the floor. Hopefully the depth will improve. So, next year with more players on the squad, the staff can be a little more demanding.....if that's her(their) style. Nicea's been a huge asset to the team already...so glad she wasn't swayed by what were basically threats. Still feel like the team will keep improving...and will continue to develop... pretty much based on coach Amy's past track record. Needs good recruits to succeed. Not a new story.

    On another note, kind of a funny story. We took our visit to CU Boulder and coach Linda Lappe - who was let go at the end of last season - seemed very pleasant. She wanted Nicea really bad. Which was understandable bc Nicea was the #2 player in Colorado and it would've been great to sign a homegrown kid to her program. We knew she was on the hot seat and we asked her and the AD about that on the visit. They both assured us she wasn't going anywhere anytime soon at all. Anyway, at the end of the visit she wanted Nicea to verbally commit, but we refused bc we told her we were going to Nebraska the following weekend and we'd decide after that visit. So the night before we're set to go to NU Coach Lappe calls Nicea at about 10p and I can see Nicea has a kind of worried look on her face. I ask her what's wrong and she says Coach Lappe said if I go on the trip to Nebraska she's taking the scholarship offer away. Needless to say that conversation pretty much took CU out of the equation bc I was not going to have a coach bully Nicea before she's even one of her players. Coach Lappe had another losing season and was let go, and I'm sure she's not an ugly person, but the pressure had her acting otherwise. We obviously made the right choice with Nebraska and in spite of our current struggles winning, Nicea loves everything about being a Husker! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    We're also playing without Morrow. While most people would say Tai is our most irreplaceable player, I actually would say Ed is. What Tai brings to the table in terms of scoring and slashing can be somewhat replicated by a number of other players on the team. But Ed, in addition to being that third scorer, is far and away our best rebounder, is the guy who sets the tone defensively, and is one of only two bona fide shot blockers we have. Put Ed in the paint, and Rutgers doesn't drive the lane with nearly as much success. And Jordy/Jacobson don't pick up 2 fouls apiece in the first 4 minutes against OSU. I know it's idle speculation, but with him in the lineup I think we win both by double digits and are sitting at 5-2. So yeah, even against some of the lesser teams in the B1G, losing by a single point without Morrow is understandable. If we're in the same position 12 months from now, then I'm OK having the fire Miles debate.

    Very interesting. We (Nicea) were recruited very heavily by WSU. We narrowed it down to 3 schools (out of 27 offers) which were Wichita State, Colorado University and Nebraska. After our visit to WSU we were almost 100% sure Nicea was going there. We really liked Coach Jody Adams. The allegations had just come out about her so I knew the main thing I wanted to ask her was to explain that situation. She was very open and honest and we left feeling pretty certain there was nothing to worry about. Almost didn't go on our visit to Nebraska we were so high on WSU, but Britney Brown - the assistant at the time under Coach Yori was so consistent recruiting Nicea that we felt like we owed it to her. Obviously after 2 days in Lincoln we fell in love with everything about NU. But I well say one of the things about the program we liked was the hard-nosed coaching style of Yori. Like I said before, Nicea actually thrives under that style. Not as much with a laid back style like Williams...anyhoo I don't know what happened at WSU and I do believe there is alot of abuse of players by coaches; but I also believe coaches aren't being allowed to discipline players like they used to be. This generation of kids don't have the same respect for authority as my generation or those before me. When a coach is tough on today's players they're more likely to report the coach to the AD vs. sucking it up and trying to get better. It's an epidemic with all these coaches getting investigated and/or fired for player abuse. Kinda sad actually. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Who was suppose to replace White and Shields this year? No one expected Tai to be 2nd in the conference in scoring this year. He averaged 10.0 points per game last year. Now, he is at 18.1 points per game. Watson, averaged 8.6 points per game last year, is now avg. 14.8 points per game. He shot 26.7% from 3 last year, and this year is shooting 42.5% from 3. Contrary to popular belief, players have improved under Miles. Turner is playing much better. Next year, we will have more depth to help us withstand injuries. We have a backcourt of: Watson, Turner, Gill, and Palmer. We have wings of: Roby, Horne, McVeigh, and Nana. We have a frontcourt of: Morrow, Jacobson, Jordy, and Copleand.

    The problem I have with all of this is that would it be automatic that a different coach would have won these last two games if placed in a similar situation? We are down 2 scholarship guys from where we started this year. Excuse? Sure. The truth? Yes. Is Miles out of excuses? Maybe. The way I see it, the expectations have increased. Which they should, but I don't think there's any way a team in any of our previous regimes would be expected to win two league games down 2 guys. We weren't in the winning conversation before even at full strength. A league game was just a loss going in most of the time. I don't believe in moral victories because they don't count in the W column, but we've now played every single one of our league games within 8 points. It's hard to ignore the competitive nature of this team, look at the makeup of the roster, and be eager to get rid of Miles. That's just me. Wouldn't make any sense in my opinion. I've watched to much Nebrasketball to just assume that they next guy isn't going to have the same struggles. Some people just assume the next guy is the right answer. These last two two games are making things difficult to swallow. Ohio State. Rutgers. Two everyone thinks we should've had. Maybe it would be easier to just go back to being blown out.
