    Bigger impact in 18-19?

    I like Nana. The guy works hard and I think has the desire to not only be successful but also see the team succeed. If Nana can master the 3 and D role, it would fill a huge void for us. Amir I think will play some, but the step from high school hoops to Big 10 basketball is big and freshmen during the Miles era haven't had a big impact. I would love to see Thor be used in a similar style as Manu Ginobili has been used as a members of the Spurs. Someone who can be a spark plug off the bench and act as a change of tempo. From the limited film I've seen on Thor I think his game and Manu's game are very similar.

    Amir Harris is N

    Maybe slightly OT but is #10 not “retired”?

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    NeBrewster pipeline is back on!

    Xavier Johnson isn't N

    This makes me think it’s Pitt. Which would be too bad

    Dachon Burke is N

    That’s gotta put a lot of people at ease that Cope and JPJ have been in the convos. I think we’re gonna be ok team

    Xavier Johnson isn't N

    I see this as progress and that he’s definitely not ruling us out. I really don’t think he wanted to decommit but his inner circle encouraged him to explore other options after Kenya left. With that said Pitt probably can guarantee a starting position and more playing time as a freshman. We gotta get a new recruiting coordinator and that person needs to make Xavier the top priority!

    Next Assistant Coach

    Another crazy hot take, but what else is there to do on April 25th. If D-Wade retires, would Miles use the connection they've made thanks to Gabrielle Union and hire Wade to be the assistant? Obviously Wade has shown he can still play this playoffs but a full season is a lot of work. I'm sure the Heat have plans for him in a cushy front office position where he could a. live in Miami b. make more money and c. not work as hard. However, wouldn't it be great having D-Wade coming into living rooms selling kids on the Big Red.

    Maybe we could get the Johnnies at home this year. I wouldn’t mind a team like Seton Hall or Georgetown. Obviously DePaul wouldn’t suck

    That’s assuming Morrow will be playing and not out for the 7th game in a row with a “foot injury”

    Next Assistant Coach

    The more likely and better option from the pros would be Billy Donovan if OKC decides to go a different route. Not that I think that would happen

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Let's talk about that tweet they sent out yesterday. It looks like everyone is there, working hard. They showed a ton of JPJ, Cope and Roby. I don't know it gave me hope that maybe just maybe all our doubts, doomsday fears, negative bs we've been feeling the past few weeks isn't as bad as we thought. Maybe, these young guns like playing together and are bought in. Maybe they are ready to take the next step, because they came so close last. Yes, we need a new recruiting coordinator/assistant coach that can bring in talent. The X-Man decommitment sucks. But I remain hopeful until it all blows up in my face that we could have another good year next year.

    Next Assistant Coach

    Ok maybe this idea is crazy and I don’t even know if he’s interested. But tis the season for hot takes and half baked ideas. I think Miles should offer Anton Gill a role as a Grad Assistant for next year. Anton probably isn’t going to have a career as a player in pro basketball. However he is a guy teammates love and I think that could transfer over as a coach and in the recruiting game. Not saying he would be the recruiting coordinator but I think he could be a key asset in this time.

    What about the head coach at Brewster Academy? Keeps some guys from leaving, brings some guys in. Win win

    Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    I'm totally in favor Copeland and Palmer going to test the waters. I'm hoping the intent is to come back to Nebraska if they come back to college basketball. Will be interesting to see how we approach recruiting. I'm hoping Miles and the staff are in better communication with these guys than in recent years

    Big Ten Tournament

    Hopefully we watched this game licking our chops. Role players for Michigan logged a few more miles than they probably would have liked, and Iowa put some doubt into their minds. Get Hungry Nebraska.
