All so predictable.
In 1996, a group of disgruntled Nebraska basketball players walked into the athletic director's office demanding an audience so as to air their grievances, and threatening a boycott. The AD promptly kicked them out and told them to get to practice. We went on to win the NIT Championship, and go to the NCAA tournament the next year.
In 2015-16, a group of disgruntled people--a former Director of Basketball operations, a trainer, a few players and some parents, weighed in with their grievances. The AD and his henchman listened intently, with great concern on their faces, salved the owies of the complainers, and commenced a full scale investigation. They offered no support for the coach, despite an impeccable record with regard to wins and championships, graduation rate, and doing things the right way. "No", they said, "this is no longer 1996! We must get on the energy bus!" So the winning-est coach in the history of the sport of basketball at Nebraska was fired, and we all lived happily ever after, frolicking on the energy bus.
Well, except the last part.
