  1. Palmer starting at the 2 is not a reach. Taylor really should be our backup PG. There is no guarantee Gill will be 100% next year. Akenten and Allen will play, but few freshmen come in ready to start day 1. I would assume Palmer will play unless we hear otherwise. I am more curious who starts the 3.
  2. I know of a number of positions where the employer requires employees to have a CDL to operating small equipment such as forklifts. It may not be legally required; however, it keeps insurance rates down and ensures employees have sufficient training to operate the machinery.
  3. CDL is probably needed to operate small machinery such as forklifts. I don't know for sure but this position is responsible for ensuring the equipment gets transported to away games.
  4. A little over a week ago, I heard about a "silent commit" from some unknown JUCO out of San Francisco. The only other information I could get out of my guy was that this kid was white and a shooter. Maybe our unsubstantiated rumors morphed from the same place.
  5. No win situation for Miles. Agau doesn't come, the fan base, or even Agau, will claim Miles turned Agau away (even if Agau does not give Miles the time of day). Agau goes to Nebraska, Miles must coach a player who spurned him in the past(twice), has publicly questioned him, and has left two previous blue blood programs without any significant playing time. Agau would be a solid addition from an ability stand point, but would you be willing to take that baggage as well?
  6. I agree; however, the possible candidate I was told about today is not yet available.
  7. No confirmation at this time but I am now also hearing a successor has been targeted. My source is usually pretty on point, but I will admit things are really fluid. In the event Miles were to leave voluntarily, there may be a bit of a wait before the successor could accept the job.
  8. Coach. I have heard rumors about Watson transferring (just like everyone else), but all my info there is 30 days old.
  9. If I am wrong, down it.
  10. Something I was told this morning. Waiting for confirmation.
  11. Something may be happening.
  12. Earlier in March, Robin Washut tweeted that no more players were transferring after Fuller and Horne made their announcements. Washut's source was Miles. Morrow then announces his intent to transfer and Washut's credibility takes a hit. Now, its rumored that Miles may be leaving (whether voluntarily or otherwise), and Miles issues another denial. I can see why people are reluctant to believe it. I have also heard not to buy into the reports Miles is staying. Things seems fluid. FWIW, I heard the players requested the meeting with Eichorst. Do not know when or if the meeting will happen; however, the time line given to me makes sense. Miles meets with players to address rumors of his departure. Players then want to talk to Eichorst.
  13. "Just Saying" Definition: The punctuation dumb people put at the end of an unsolicited, factless assertion to indicate self satisfaction at having stated something they erroneously believe to be clever, biting, and insightful. sayin'
  14. I agree; however, others may not. Fuller and Horne leaving are acceptable losses. Morrow, in addition to Roby, Watson, and Jordy, is not acceptable. Morrow leaving may be what's needed for some to push out Miles. Did you notice Morrow's transfer announcement came after some of the big names, e.g. Archie Miller, etc., took new positions? If I were Eichorst, I would be looking to take a family trip Gettysburg (a 20 minute drive to Emmitsburg, Maryland). I did not expect Morrow to transfer, but I cannot say I am surprised. Another poster stated last year that Morrow was seriously considering transferring. Additionally, Jordy's development combined with Morrow injury issues could force both to share minutes at the 5. Neither are a good fit in Miles system at the 4. Jordy also has a height advantage over Morrow. A year in the weight room will also close the gap between some of the advantages Morrow has over Jordy. Morrow is not a backup. His toughness, attitude, and leadership is vital to the team. However, having to share minutes at the 5 may not have been palatable. Factor in, as noted by one poster in another thread, that Miles is not exactly beloved and the team's development seems stalled, I can definitely understand Morrow leaving.
  15. Basketball recruiting is a completely different animal than football recruiting. There are numerous prep schools from New Jersey down to North Carolina that rival Class D Nebraska schools in size and would not exist but for their basketball program. These teams travel all over the country with tutors in tow playing in tournaments. For most of these kids, location means little to them. Coaching, program prestige, NCAA tournament history, and NBA selections are far more important to these kids. If you have the time, watch "Prayer for a Perfect Season" on HBO. You see a lot of those issues discussed by those kids.
