  1. Hank Bounds interview

    I would bet the indecisiveness on Miles led KH to at least put some feelers out to see what options he had. Then UCONN makes an offer and it is a no brainer for him and I do not blame him. If Moos came out right away and extended Miles and showed some confidence maybe he does not even put out feelers.
  2. Let me get this straight...

    There is simply no chance this does not hurt recruiting a lot. Every coach we go up against will be using it without a doubt. This will also impact the type of assistant coach we can get. This is a very loud and clear no confidence vote by the AD, no other way to look at it. It sucks because it does kill momentum and is needless. give him 3 years, lower the buyout, and praise him to everyone for a great job last year. It should not have been that hard unless Miles took a hard stance in negotiations which I doubt since he does not have a lot of juice.
  3. What to do with Miles contract?

    There seems to be a regent floating the rumor about Altman at 8 years / 30mil, so who knows who old Herman talks to.
  4. Name that Coach

    I was not that upset at 2015 either. Having 3 freshman, even good freshman, playing that big of a role is going to be hard to compete in normal big 10 years. Outside of top 25-50 guys, most will really struggle at times as freshman. 2014 and 2016 I agree were issues for me. I really believe if we fired Miles this year we will really be setting this program back big time. I do have faith in Moos to do the right thing though. I will have serious concerns if big contributors leave for shaky reasons again.
  5. Name that Coach

    I will disagree, think his first season was one of his best coaching jobs. We did not have much at all to work with. I have really only thought we really under performed in 2014 and 2016.
  6. OT- Boy's State Tournament

    Don't think anyone will beat Prep but weirder things have happened for sure. I would not mind seeing Bryan win as that young coach has built them up from the below the basement. Hope Platteview gets it done as well in B
  7. NCAA or bust.

    If you do not think at least part of the reason those guys left is because of better competition I do not know what to say. Ed basically lost his job last year to Jordy who continued starting after Ed came back from injury. You could tell at the time that did not sit well with him. They fully knew the hype on Copeland and I bet they saw Roby's potential everyday. I agree he probably did not want to play the 5 either but he saw the writing and I am not sure he just needed a fresh start. Miles also said after that recruiting class, it is his job to go out and get even better players every year. He did that so those guys were in a tough spot but you seem to be blaming Miles for good recruiting. Also crazy to blame the BIG10 issues as pointed out we are the reason some of those teams do not seem as good. We should not even be having this conversation and hopefully he doubles down next year and we get momentum but who knows I am going to enjoy the success while it is here.
  8. Big Ten Tournament

    I understand, neither do I. Just going off what info is out there and personal opinions after hearing him talk numerous times. Hopefully he is on our side in the room but who knows for sure.
  9. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    No worries, hopefully ASU holds on, appreciate any free picks you feel good about.
  10. Big Ten Tournament

    He is friends with TO as well, do not think he would screw us. Besides that he seems like a pretty great guy.
  11. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Same with how a team finishes. They do not use the last 10 metric anymore but I would bet anything how they finish the season is discussed. Bruce said basically they go thru every game for each of the bubble teams. So that would naturally include how they finished the year and how they did in their conference.
  12. Next year

    I would guess they both are on track unless they had some delays along the way. I think Palmer could have a shot at the NBA if he really dialed in his jump shot so that might be a reason to come back. Copeland I am not sure what he could do and I would not blame him if he wants to go make money over seas. Maybe he uses the year to get stronger and gets a FA tryout or something. Do not think it is an easy answer for either, hope like hell they stay would be fun. If one or both leave I think Jack would stay, if not I would guess he might want to go play and make some money himself. Love the guy and would love him to stay but who could blame him.
  13. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    What do you do for fun, go around to grade schools and tell kindergartners that Santa is a hoax? I am saying most of the teams on that list that got left off are mid majors at best, which we are not so it is not apples to apples. Lets make a deal I will not respond to you and you do likewise? You should also listen to Bruce today, said at one point his wife can pick better than Lunardi and his ilk.
  14. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    Not to mention most of those are mid majors at best. Even though the Big10 is considered down they will have to acknowledge most of our wins are against P5 teams unlike most on this list.
