  1. Eichorst Out

    I've seen a couple of people make the option football comment now. What are you basing this on?

    See above. I have already been corrected.
  3. I'm wondering if our Watson-Allen duo can be similar to the KU guard of the past couple of years--Devonte Graham and Frank Mason, III. Allen reminds me a whole lot of Graham. Combo guard, Brewster Academy, 6'2", 40+% 3pt shooter. I think Self thought so as well. Mason and Graham were basically unguardable together the past two seasons. It helps when Mason shot a legit 50% from 3. I think both GWIII and Allen will shoot over 40% from 3 this season.

    Osborne's recommendation (Solich) and hire (Pelini) both had .750+ winning percentages. Those are remarkably rare winning percentages. Solich was fired by a colossal idiot, and Pelini would've been given every chance in the world to succeed/update his staff had he not burned bridges. Regardless, even the Pelini hire was a very successful one given where the program was in 2007. Yori--upgrade. Miles--upgrade. Erstad--upgrade. New practice facilities. New arena. TO was a great AD by every known metric. The next AD can still be his/her own man and agree with the greatest coach in college football history. A great doctor typically agrees with other great doctors on diagnoses. etc.

    I think the next AD will share Osborne's opinion on the next FB HC seeing as Osborne is already being consulted for the next AD hire. It will be a unified front. The press conference today signaled nothing less.

    I think search firm hired will report back to Osborne on the candidates he wants searched. Their job will likely be to do thorough background checks on Osborne's candidates. 1. Frost 2. Triple option gurus--Johnson, Niumatalolo, Calhoun 3. Whoever the firm finds. I think Calhoun is the dark horse--NFL OC experience, loves the triple option, and has had 10-win seasons 2 of the last 3 years at friggin Air Force.

    Great proactive decision, IMO. Hopefully we won't get cute with the next hire(s). It's funny: the moron ADs who took the pretentious "academic" and "philosophical" approach to hiring rather than the blatantly obvious empirical one were Peterson and Eichorst. The middle guy--Osborne, who just so happens to have a doctorate in educational psychology--picked coaches with Nebraska ties because he understood the importance of culture and communication in this area. All of Osborne's hires--Pelini, Miles, Yori, and Erstad--have a Nebraska commonality, and all of them were more successful than their predecessor. None of them were celebrity hires, but they were all carefully considered and did not involve some public abstract esoteric boast of "understanding" of coaching philosophy. What's even more hilarious about the lack of boast is that Osborne is an actual coaching genius, yet he is time and time again dismissed by fans as someone the program shouldn't be seeking for advice. The claim of Steve Peterson was that our football program was gravitating to "mediocrity" two years from a national championship appearance and that our insanely innovative offensive system was antiquated. Idiot. The claim of Shawn Eichorst was that he knows championship-calibre football while hiring a coach with a horrendously worse record than the one he fired. Doofus. Hopefully when Osborne is consulted, we will do what he suggests, which probably means the subsequent hiring of AD Alberts and HC Frost. I agree with the notion that TM might have two guaranteed seasons now, including this one. Just don't hire some pretentious idiot who has their head so far up their own ass that they can't see what's right in front of them. PLEASE.
  9. Serious question ...

    This year's roster has enough talent to really evaluate Tim Miles as an in-game coach. There are no massive roster deficiencies, so the microscope can fairly go on his coaching staff, in my opinion. I actually say that as an optimist. The fact that he has brought this sort of talent here is basically the first, enormous check mark for a real basketball program. I'm beyond impressed, and it's a huge accomplishment. Let's hope he can facilitate their success.
  10. Huskers Preseason Event - Oct. 6

    Yeah, utterly bizarre decision considering Nebraska weather variables in freaking October. Good idea, wrong climate.
  11. Next Years Starting 5

    Misread your original question, sorry.

    Defense can be coached, but one has to be athletic enough to do so. I'm guessing a top 150 recruit with elite athleticism can guard. It has everything to do with his defense because being a poor defender could keep him off the court regardless of his offensive prowess.
  13. Next Years Starting 5

    Nebraska hasn't fielded a full lineup the last few years precisely for that reason. The most forgotten impact player Nebraska has had is Rey Gallegos. He was third on the 13-14 tournament team in minutes. He was a good defender and a serviceable three point threat. His presence on the court on offense meant open lanes and less double teams. I see Allen having the ability to play a very similar role if he can guard the perimeter.
  14. Next Years Starting 5

    He's a very good shooter who shoots a true jump shot from 3. He shot 45% from 3 in high school, if I'm not mistaken. I think his athleticism transfers to D1 immediately.
  15. I think Taylor is a very serviceable point guard if Miles makes up his mind that's what Taylor is. He takes care of the ball, has great size, can get to the lane, and is a very good defender. Otherwise, it's going to have to be Allen, which I think would be a waste of a skilled scorer. Taylor's offense is ineffective on the wing for the most part because he's not a consistent shooter, but his defense has always been very good. I think he could do some damage as an aggressive PG off the bench and a utility sub for 2 and 3. He doesn't need to be a starter to log starter minutes. I think Allen gets the nod at the 2 with a short leash for Palmer. It'll depend on matchups though. Very different athletic types.
