  1. This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    Then apparently no other conversations were worth having, so I still agree with you -- neither Nike nor Under Armour value Nebraska as highly as Adidas does.
  2. This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    We're talking about multi-million dollar apparel deals. What good does a "feeler" do? I would assume it does little to nothing. "Conversations" are what matter when dealing with this stuff.
  3. This is Why I Don't Like Adidas...

    From Sam McKewon's OWH article: "Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst said NU never talked to any other company." http://www.omaha.com/huskers/football/mckewon-with-adidas-deal-and-coming-big-ten-windfall-a/article_7248d226-c6c0-5005-9bf6-28672c461172.html But I agree with you -- doubt Nike or Under Armour would value Nebraska as highly as Adidas did/does.
  4. Brady Heiman is 'N'

    You can't coach 6' 10 1/2". He's from Nebraska. There is very little to lose from trying to develop him. He won't be worse than Jake Hammond. I'm very happy Heiman accepted our offer.
  5. The Isaac Copeland watch

    He would be eligible as soon as the first semester ends. So he would be eligible for the Kansas game on December 16th.
  6. My Head Hurts...

    You'd think Barfknecht (OWH), Basnett (LSJ), and/or Washut (Husker Online) would at least be updating us on the status of Copeland's appeal on a weekly basis. I don't need a daily, "Nothing to report."; but at least give us a weekly update of who you've talked to, what you've learned, who/what NU is waiting on, etc. At this point, I don't care what the outcome of the appeal is, I just want to know! I hate waiting.
  7. Rank the league's top 5 PGs

    1. Nate Mason , MINN 2. Bryant McIntosh, NW 3. Glynn Watson, Jr., NEB 4. Jordan Bohannon, IOWA 5a. Jaaron Simmons, MICH 5b. Corey Sanders, RUT Wanted to include Sanders because he's pretty fun to watch.
  8. Taylor is a better ball handler than Gill. So I'd say Allen and Taylor are the most likely candidates for second best ball handler.
  9. It's more likely that they are all starters, than they are all backups.
  10. The Isaac Copeland watch

    I really thought all of this would have been taken care of in April...
  11. Who Starts?

    Why we continued to play a half-court game (especially with a smaller roster) the past few seasons is beyond me. Would have loved to see us get out and run more. With a lack of consistent shooters, it seems this style would have suited us better. It appeared to be Miles' pure stubbornness that prevented a change in style. My coworker's limo-driving friend picked up Ed Morrow from the airport while he was going on recruiting trips after his transfer announcement. After striking up a conversation, Ed said that the team wanted to play a full-court game, but Miles was adamantly against it. That's why he transferred.
  12. Who Starts?

    All I'm saying is that what Miles has been doing -- philosophy, coaching, rotation, etc. -- hasn't been working very well lately. Maybe it's time to take a different approach and change things up. I'm as excited about the new talent as anybody, but I have very little faith in Miles to get the team/program where we would like it to be. I would just like to see a different approach.
  13. Who Starts?

    Roby was coming off an injury. If he was healthy, would he have started over McVeigh? Glynn SHOULD have been starting over Benny Parker. (I love Benny, but Glynn is a better D-I basketball player than Benny -- you will never convince me otherwise.) Ed was also coming off an injury and has since left the program. (Hmm... I wonder why?) Maybe Miles SHOULD start the 4-star freshmen. We want future 4+-stars to want to come to Nebraska. But they won't come here to ride the bench for 2 years.
  14. Who Starts?

    Yeah, I got the point from the other three people who said this before you. Nice rhyme, though. I've never heard/seen someone use that one. Very clever.
  15. Who Starts?

    Well, I apparently misremembered some rankings, but that was not the focus of my post. I know Miles puts an emphasis on defense, but that hasn't faired us very well. Other than the one month to finish 2013-14, we've been pretty tough to watch (and the record reflects this). I think it's time to change things up. Inject some energy into this program. Thomas Allen is the kind of player who can do that. He's not a typical freshman, either. He just finished playing a season for the best prep school in the country. My point is, we've maybe never had a player like this. And I want him to stick around.
