    OT: Biographies

    Not strictly a biography, but Basketball and Other Things by Shea Serrano was a blast to read and has a lot of historical anecdotes from the NBA.

    Let me get this straight...

    If you were the AD, would you go to the Kansas basketball game or the volleyball National Championship game?

    Fun fact! Millennials are typically considered to contain those born in the '80s to mid 90's. Xavier, someone born in (I'm guessing 2000) would qualify as a member of Generation Z. (For context, I work on a college campus and generational differences have been a frequent topic of discussion as the needs/wants of students are changing).

    Miles extension poll

    When it comes to postseason success at Nebraska, Amy Williams (.333 winning %) > Scott Frost (.000 winning %). Men lie, women lie, numbers don't lie.

    Paying players a signing bonus should be allowed

    The closest the Census gets is 25-34 years old. In that case 52% of people in that range have no degree and 63% do not have a Bachelor's Degree or higher.

    The majority of people have degrees now. When everyone has something its value is relatively reduced. Well, that's just not true. According to the 2017 census, 56% of the US population above the age of 25 does not have a degree of any kind and 66% do not have a Bachelor's Degree or higher (so D1 schools). I am pro-paying players, but there's no benefit to be had by using only anecdotal evidence to argue your points.

    The notion that the Big Ten is down has nothing to do with the top teams in the league. It's simply because there was no middle of the Big Ten this year. Here's a look at the number of teams each year that were below .500 overall since Nebraska joined the league: 2017-2018: 6 2016-2017: 3 2015-2016: 4 2014-2015: 4 2013-2014: 3 (Plus Rutgers in the AAC, so 4 if you count them) 2012-2013: 4 (Plus Rutgers in the Big East, so 5 if you count them) 2011-2012: 2 (Plus Rutgers in the Big East, so 3 if you count them)

    Would anyone from Nebraska see the court if they played for Nova? Roby?

    What to do with Miles contract?

    I think many people are getting hung up on the buyout numbers as having a huge impact on the decision-making process. I really don't think anyone in the athletic department cares. They're paying (at rough estimate) $14 MILLION for Bo, Shawn, and Mike to not work here anymore. What's another couple million on top of it?

    What to do with Miles contract?

    Honestly, what incentive does Bill Moos have to get rid of Tim? We've been in the top 15 for attendance every year Tim's been here. I'm Bill, I'm keeping my mouth shut and doing nothing until fans stop showing up and the athletic department can't milk the cash cow.

    USC Coach nails it

    I've looked at literally no other metric, but merely looking at conference finishes makes this seem like a head scratcher: USC: finishes 2nd in PAC 12, gets 1 seed in NIT Arizona State: finishes 9th in PAC 12, gets 11 seed in NCAA

    Should college players get paid and if so how much?

    See, I'm not so sure about this. I think it could create an interesting scenario if the NCAA comes out and says pay athletes whatever you want, just make sure the amount you spend on men is the same as you spend on women. A snarky response to this would be to say I'd be happy to see the NCAA start caring about Title IX issues for once @Baylor.
