  1. Coach Miles

    Depends what you call special. I’d say 20 wins and meaningful late February games is pretty special, I’d sign up for that year in and year out if we could. Also there a chance next year that we could win less games but it could be considered a better season. It really just all all comes down to expectations. As long as we are bringing in exciting recruits( the 3 current ones all seem to have a shock n awe to them IMO ) and we pack the vault every home game I tend to believe the on court stuff will take care of itself. Heck if miles incorporates some form of offense into the offense then we won’t have anything to complain about on this forum. Then what are we all gonna do?
  2. Okay we have the typical doom and gloom post

    Iowa should have multiple transfers too, they have like 6 4/5 guys who could all play significant roles elsewhere.

    Sure sounds like Illinois is gonna have a lot of roster turnover
  4. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    I’m guessing he’s going oversees to play rather than transferring to another school but I could be wrong. It’s another open scholarship atleast
  5. What to do with Miles contract?

    You gotta extend him n you gotta make it so he has a 4 or 5 year deal weather it’s a whole new contract or just an extension. hopes for next year should be high, I have my sights set on the school record for wins in the regular season alone but I don’t get all the talk that we are in trouble after cope palmer n glen leave. The cupboards will be far from bear and with 4 or 5 open scholarships next year my sights are set on a top 25 recruiting class similar to the class of 2015 rankings wise. when your a program like Nebraska it’s all about stability, n if we reup with miles I believe in 5 years we will be beyond pleased with the state of the program.

    We need to Start a deandre Ayton type slush fund. 10,000 fans chip in 10 bucks n we are in business
  7. Tough end to a pretty magical month n a half as a fan. effort was pretty lack luster tonight, jordys gotta learn to finish dunks n lay ups my god, and redic amount of three point shots when we don’t shoot it well from the normal distance. im a pretty big Miles supporter but am pretty disappointed w tonight’s game. They showed alil offense from time to time w glen getting into the lane but defensive game plan was poo. There point could shake n bake us whenever he wanted to off the dribble n the lack of zone defense was quite frankly maddening, probably the only time all year I’ve had issues w coaching outside of the penn st debacle. w all that being said I am pumped for the home stretch of recruiting and am looking forward to a loaded roster next year. A thanks to all that make this site and blog what it is, I check it atleast 5 times a day since becoming part of it. Love the opinions and the feedback even to the guy who says cope is good on the boards
  8. Karrington Davis is N

    Hip not knee my bad
  9. Karrington Davis is N

    Averaged 19 ppg his last season in St. Louis I believe and was considered a top 100-150 guy before a knee injury a few years ago, could be the kinda guy we normally don’t get a chance at outta high school
  10. Next year

    Roby would likely flourish at the 4 position. At some point roby will probably get tired of having to gaurd bigger 5s. However yes our depth would then be an issue, would need a grad transfer
  11. Next year

    it’s probably not the worst thing if cope leaves, palmer would obviously be a big blow. it will be interesting to see if Xavier can shoot enough to play the two because he looks like a point to me at this point in his career
  12. Coach Miles

    IMO we should give miles a 4 year 12 mil extension and give whatever assistants we need 200k to 300k raises. Some coaches can let assistants come n go but at this point we need to continuity.
  13. NCAA or bust.

    Morrow was essentially palmers size plus 20 pounds, let that sink in then imagine him going against fives in this league( not sure what his wing span is put it’s likely compable to palmers) you really can’t blame him for transferring out and probably should question if he wasn’t over ranked as a prospect. Wish him the best at Marquette but inless his range significantly improves he’s playing the five there too. Jacobson woulda made a great 5, had some range n some defensive mobility. But he didn’t wanna play the 5 either so best wishes to him at Iowa state too. The funny thing is we basically play positionless basketball now inless jordy is on the floor, morrow n Jacobsen probably woulda fit into that just in reduced rolls
  14. Coach Miles

    Either fire him or extend him 4+ years, anything else is a hinderance to the program. Even with some roster attrition this will probably be the best team in place to start a year for the skers in the last decade.
  15. Big Ten Tournament

    Iowa is an attacking gaurd away from being good next year. Garza is gonna cause pple fits for a lot of years it looks like.
  16. Big Ten Tournament

    Good question since Iowa just played 4 posts vs them for the last ten minutes of the half and is still winning. The amount of open floor seats is laughable, hope the big ten decision makers enjoy seeing that
  17. Next year

    Thank you, in no way is Copeland a bad player, he’s probably a top ten player in the last decade for the skers but if he comes back n really works on that aspect of his game he probably has a chance to be a second round pick as a guy who can get you 10 boards n shoot in the high 30% range from 3 point land. when you guys are referring to his show are you talking about him being on jim Rome? If not can you post a link to what your referring to?
  18. Next year

    He’s got 10 more boards than roby In 238 more minutes and 55 more boards than jordy in 542 more mins. We are gonna have to agree to disagree on this I think. Copeland is a very good player for us especially on the offensive end but I am not a fan of his post positioning and rebounding on defense
  19. Next year

    If we are calling that boxing out then he is just in very poor positions a lot of the time IMO. Good info, sure hope that both thor and nana don’t transfer tho
  20. Next year

    Palmer is probably average on defense. Copeland is definitely below constantly gets beat for post position and rarely boxes out even seems to be a step slow off the dribble half the time. Roby has just been able to mask all this over the last ten games or so I’d agree with colhuskers neither are NBA ready. Palmer could probably catch on w an nba bench n cope would be either G league or a euro league guy
  21. Now what?

    We match up very well w Michigan, They have improved significantly since our last matchup but so have we. Plus I think Iowa gives them a scare if they can get past Illinois. Palmer just seems like he has no legs under him so hopefully 4 days off will change that. That being said we are coming off back to back games where it was more of a 5 or 6 guy offensive win that just a palmer n another guy win so I’m pretty pumped for Friday, probably gonna take the day off just to watch it
  22. Hopefully miles keeps hammering away at the transfer market, turning into what Iowa state was would not be a bad thing, I would like to see us focus more on local talent when trying to round out our roster in an effort to keep them at the school n develop them over 4 years if the local talent is worthy of an offer. Just seems more likely an instate kid won’t transfer out if not playing. Love that we got Heiman
  23. Penn St at Michigan game

    If Watkins plays Sunday n it looks like a huge IF his mobility n shot blocking will definitely be affected. michigsn took one outta our book here w the zone. Penn state has no answer for it since Carr always has the ball in his hands and the 1 3 1 kinda neutralizes that aspect of an offense. The way people talk of chambers I doubt he makes an adjustment in 3 days. Hopefully our zone which should be much more refined than Michigan’s will be on lock Sunday
  24. anyone closer to the program know if nana not playing this year is to do w his current level of development or is it more of having two seniors ahead of him? I always figured it was the seniors but I am just basing that off of his high school film and the fact that he spends a lot of time in the gym. i can’t help but think that Xavier is gonna come in and take some minutes from Glynn. Xavier attacks the bucket hard and really seems to have a knack for getting others involved. More of a PG then a SG in my eyes
  25. I think the same thing during the games. Is it just me or were we actually running plays to begin the year? Like why not try some lobs to roby or some three pointer looks for allen or gill not just the grenade lob in to jordy or palmer then resetting the offense every time?
