    Creighton Cobra Kai

    I agree, but (if not on your team) those players are VERY easy to hate. Aaron Craft and Grayson Allen are some other examples that come to mind.

    Creighton Cobra Kai

    There's already at "t" at the end of "eight", so the additional "T" is unnecessary. No wonder nobody gets it. Glad you didn't buy it - it's a bad design.

    Creighton Cobra Kai

    This is available and I want it. Just can't pull the trigger in the middle of a 7-game losing streak...

    Is he anti-Kobe? Or just pro-Tai?

    Dachon Burke is N

    Probably not. But I was in a good mood so I finally posted something positive!

    Love to read that Copeland and Palmer were a big part of Dachon's recruiting process! Leads me to believe that if they don't go pro, they'll both be back at Nebraska next season. Dachon had great things to say about Miles' recruiting pitch (most notably about how well prepared he was for the in-home visit), which is also good to read! Now let's hope we can beat out Pittsburgh again and get Xavier Johnson to re-commit!

    Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    I hear and understand your point of view, we just have different thoughts/feelings. And that's okay.

    Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    I doubt that it's an officially licensed product of the University of Nebraska as "Nebrasketball" is not an official trademark of the University. (But it should be.) I have a "Protect the Vault" t-shirt, but it definitely was not designed, manufactured, distributed, or sold by the University. I bought it on Amazon.

    Is it an Adidas brand shirt?

    What if "the guy" Moos wants wasn't available? Why fire Tim Miles only to hire someone else who isn't "the guy"? That could set the program back even further! I like Tim. I want him to be "the guy" at Nebraska. I want him to be a winner here. After last season, I am genuinely curious what he can do this next season. I obviously have my doubts that Tim can lead this program to the heights I'd like to see it achieve. So, to me, a one-year extension was fitting.

    You're right. We didn't "fold". Even the loss at Illinois wasn't exactly "folding". I was bummed at the end of the season - it felt like a giant letdown. But you're right in that it was different this season.

    Should the AD or any of those other folks you mentioned have full confidence in Miles, though? Surely you're not surprised that the AD isn't all-in on Tim Miles. How is any of this a shock to people?

    1. There may have been SOME positive momentum. Personally, I was pretty bummed finishing the season 0-2 and not making the NCAA Tournament. The end of the season was a big letdown. It felt very Nebrasketball-esque. That's our reputation/brand: another letdown. So, yeah. I suppose we could have furthered that brand, but I'm not sure we want to? 2. My concern throughout the season was that we would fold down the stretch. (This was based on Miles' - the CEO's - track record.) I suppose those negative thoughts could have been mitigated with winning postseason games? We did not do that. 3. I think the brand had remained unchanged. We won 22 games, finished 4th in the Big Ten and still didn't make the NCAA Tournament. What's more Nebrasketball than that?! If we want to further the Nebrasketball brand, we need to win games that matter. We didn't do much of that this past season.

    Good companies don't evaluate CEO's based on the most recent quarter or even year. They take into account the entire time that CEO has been with the company (and perhaps even before that). The CEO reflects the company and its brand, so the company has to be very diligent with their review of the CEO. This can take time. If a CEO has struggled for a few years but then has a decent/good year, the company still has every right to be hesitant. The company may reward the CEO for a job well done with a small raise or extension, but very few companies would say, "Now he's getting it! Give him at least 5 more years!" because nothing has happened that proves that CEO can sustain success for multiple years in a row. The company is not sure they want to tie their brand to that CEO for the long term. And that's okay. The company said that as soon as the year was over, they would inform the public (its consumers) what they were going to do with their CEO. The company informed its consumers just 15 days after the end of the year that they've given their CEO a one-year extension for a job well done this past year. The "brand" of the company will most likely remain the same as it was the year before, except to the hardcore consumers who really like that CEO. But to the general public (especially nationally), they probably didn't even notice a thing. (The title of this thread made me laugh. The university has yet to embrace using "Nebrasketball" in marketing. I've always thought "Nebrasketball" was cool and catchy, but you can't even buy a "Nebrasketball" t-shirt in the shop at PBA. What a missed BRANDING opportunity!)

    Let me get this straight...

    One could argue that extending a .500 coach five years would be an even greater implication that Moos doesn't care about winning basketball games. At Nebraska, Miles is 4-13 in March road and neutral site games (3-13 in such games at Colorado State, so 7-26 as a D-I coach). He's 0-6 against Creighton (many of which have been blowouts). If you're happy with going to the NIT every other year, then I guess Miles is your guy. I just want more than that. And I think Moos does, too.
