  1. Postseason Tourney Talk

    I'm just happy that the biggest thing we have to argue about at this point in the year was if the charity game should count or not. That my friends is one hell of a year so far.
  2. Postseason Tourney Talk

    Usually I would agree. Both teams were at full strength and played to win. I will count that. Sure it won't show up in the official stats. We still beat them. Plus, you play every game to win. We won. I will stick with 2-2.

  12. Day and Time Contest

    March 25th at 2:30 PM Central Time. Something about Sunday news conferences and Husker athletics.
  13. Idea for NCAA Tournament

    This is interesting. Most teams have to travel for their conference tournament anyways, so the travel should't be an issue. I say seed them straight #1-#351. One thing you could do to avoid travel issues would be to try and keep teams in regions by shuffling around same seeds. Example would be if Drake was a #4 seed for example and had to play at UCLA, but Long Beach State was also a 4 seed playing in Missouri, you could swap Drake and LBSU without losing seeding really. This could grow on me.
  14. What to do with Miles contract?

    Correct. We cannot "hope" for something better. The grass isn't always greener on the other side. If we do go down that path, we need to make sure we have something better. Miles has some of the best stuff cooking that we have had in a looooooong time. We risk losing ALL of that if we don't have our poop in a group.

    Evelyn realllly struggled against Power 5 competition this year. I realize he had a good year in conference, but it isn't like the teams they played are world beaters either.
  16. Name that Coach

    And 22 wins is not positive momentum?
  17. What to do with Miles contract?

    It isn't a straight trade up or trade down situation? I am talking about how Miles filled our needs each and every year with better players. If you can't see it then I don't know what else to tell you man. I am not just talking about *'s here. I for one am not a big believer in stars. I am talking about talent and upgrades in positions of need. Miles has excelled at that... whether you want to admit or not. This argument also does not assume that Miles poorly evaluated high school kids, it's actually the opposite. Miles found something he liked, something he could use, and something that worked for us to begin with. Then he found something better. Once he found something better, we got rid of the old toys. It doesn't mean we did a poor job of evaluating those players. That was all we could get. It means Miles has gotten significantly better at signing better players. Hell, it isn't that hard to identify talent. Any Joe Schmoe could do that. Getting them to actually come here is another thing though. Miles did that. See these are the types of arguments that I don't understand. The "Well since we got better players, it must mean that Miles stunk it up in the beginning," argument. I will agree to disagree with you until the end of time on that argument. Miles did the best with what he had early, and then continued to get better and better. Not much more you could ask from someone.
  18. I heard he got kicked out of there for getting into a tussle over balloon volleyball and then winking at the families that were there visiting their loved ones.
  19. What to do with Miles contract?

    You are correct. There comes a point where there isn't better players to recruit and I think that this is one of those offseasons. There isn't anything left to use in the cupboard for next year. But, so far as I can tell, we are only losing one player that, again, was recruited over for better players. I along with most on here think that next year is the year. It almost has to be. We know what we will have and we know that they can beat anyone. I think the talent did pay off this year though. We won 22 games. We've done more than that once in school history. We won 13 Big 10 games. Of the teams that were able to accomplish that, ALL of them except us were invited to the Dance and won a game there. I don't agree with someone pointing out the "high turnover" as a reason to get rid of Miles. Because each and every time that has happened, we have improved our player quality. This year it paid off. We need to continue to build on that. We can sit here and play guessing games about who may or may not leave, but until that becomes a reality, there is no way for us to know. The upgrade in talent did pay off this year. I think we all can see that.
  20. What to do with Miles contract?

    So let's look at the whole picture. Of the three transfers that left, one went pro (good), one quit basketball all together (not bad for NU), and only one was probably bad for NU and that was White. Most all high school players left because Miles recruited BETTER players. Hello... isn't that what we want? Look it's ok to lose talent, if you are upgrading with better talent. Miles HAS done this. It isn't like we are replacing 5* recruits with 3* recruits. It is actually pretty opposite. The transfer route isn't a bad route to recruit either. The days of having the 4 year player that stars for you are almost over. That's just the way things are today. And if they pass the transfer and no sit rule, it is only going to get worse. Miles seems to be a step ahead of the game for this. I for one am happy about that. We cannot keep bagging on Miles for losing talent and fail to see that he has upgraded the talent each and every time we lost talent. Hell, our biggest losses were probably Ed and MJ, and we managed to upgrade with Copeland, Palmer (both already in the fold), TAllen, and Dube. I don't know about you, but that is one hell of a trade in a good way for Nebraska.

    Please tell me that is a 6'11" grad transfer who averaged 10 and 10 this past year and wants to come to Nebraska.....
  22. Mikey D will test the waters or return to SDSU last time I heard.
  23. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Players who should test the NBA waters. Sure not all will do something, but it doesn't hurt to test and get feedback. Obvious: Duby, Gill, Taylor, Palmer Should: Roby, Glynn, Copeland, Jordy
