  1. The Isaac Copeland watch

    No inside knowledge, but it is possible this whole situation has been delayed due to the medical opinion/documentation. If I recall correctly, the basis of Copeland's appeal is that Georgetown had him playing while injured. If that is the case, Nebraska must not only show that Copeland was injured and should not have played but also provide some kind of basis why Copeland was allowed to play. That type of information requires time to prepare and even more time to review. The NCAA knows the Copeland decision could create future precedent for other cases, and I understand why they are being cautious. Expect a decision before the start of the season (or shortly thereafter).
  2. Next Years Starting 5

    I will not contest Jack's stroke or hard work ethic. However, the consensus of people I trust say Jack lacks athleticism. I wonder if there is truth to this belief. Jack's inside game is not strong. He length compensates for smaller, quicker players. He seems to lack strength at times. I am not trying to dog on Jack, but he does seem more limited than other players. I have no problems with Jack finding his spots along the 3pt line and attempting shots. I am just not sure how he fits other roles. For that reason I feel he is better off the bench. I understand some will be quick to counter that Jack will probably be playing international ball after college. So did Shang Ping.
  3. Next Years Starting 5

    I have trouble seeing Taylor starting. He is the best option when Watson rests. I expect 15 minutes a game (mostly while Watson is getting a breather) and would be worried if he gets more. Thor's commitment is interesting as it give Miles 7 guards of which 4 of them are 6-5/6-6. I would not be surprised seeing those 7 guards playing the 1-3 which would leave Jordy, Roby, Copeland, and Okeke at the 4/5 (and possibly Borchardt). If that is true, Jack seems to be the odd man out.
  4. A comparison of teams

    I agree. However, Miles has kept one scholarship open most, if not all, the time he has coached here. When available, one of the walk ons gets it. It works to incentivize the walk ons, Miles gets some good press with the locals, and has the ability to pull the scholarship next year if/when a more talented kid comes along.
  5. A comparison of teams

    Its not priorities thing. From what I understand its more of a desire to play basketball. Its not uncommon for some kids to burnout on playing competitive sports. Further, I would never knock a kid who prioritizes school over sports.
  6. A comparison of teams

    I have heard good things about Borchardt's athleticism. However, I wonder about his drive. I am under the impression could have, but chose not to, play college sports and basically tried out for the basketball team on a whim. It could be possible Miles kept a scholarship open as motivation for Borchardt. I hope he is practicing/keeping himself in shape this summer. I get the feeling the staff may try to use him as a backup PF/C. It would be interesting to say the least.
  7. Next Years Starting 5

    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.
  8. Are you job hunting???

    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.
  9. Are you job hunting???

    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.
  10. Hello? It's too quiet in here

    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.
  11. Agau's Salty

    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?
  12. I agree; however, the possible candidate I was told about today is not yet available.
  13. 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.
  14. Coach. I have heard rumors about Watson transferring (just like everyone else), but all my info there is 30 days old.
  15. If I am wrong, down it.
