  1. Next Assistant Coach

    That would be more accurately represented as 0.00% or something of a higher degree of precision
  2. Scheduling

    Last year's pay games I think we got Stetson as part of the tourney package because Stetson also played Marist and UCF. Not pictured: Marist, Long Beach St because we didn't schedule them Big picture-wise we lost zero pay games this last year including the 3 holiday games we sleptwalked through. I think we can handle 1-2 complete turds while not killing our RPI, especially if they're in the holiday punch bowl.
  3. This way we can just add all of this news into one thread instead of having to track down old threads or start new ones. TP signed with Nanterre 92, a team in the top basketball league in France
  4. Next Assistant Coach

    I'm not real interested in seeing one of the best players in Nebraska history turned into Eddie Jordan part duex
  5. Interesting comparison. L$U was the team that was better at recruiting to land Elbert Robin$on over us. Jones then followed up not making it to the NCAA tourney with Ben Simmons by only winning 10 games.
  6. Next Assistant Coach

    There is a 0.0% chance Lue would come here as an assistant.
  7. Scheduling

    I don't think replacing Delaware St with nothing (let's say a D-2 win) gets us in the tourney. It was about Q1-Q2 type wins and the avoidance of Q3-Q4 losses. Replace Delaware St with a road game somewhere decent plus win it. Maybe. Otherwise, I don't think we overcompensate for last year. 5-6 pay games to finish out the schedule while limiting the terrible ones. Adding two more conference games is essentially like adding 2 more non-cupcake games. NC State played Bryant (341), South Carolina St (331), VMI (315), Jacksonville (283), UMKC (261) Charleston Southern (260) on their way to the NCAA tourney last year.
  8. Let me get this straight...

    The extension was formally sent out Monday the 16th and signed by Miles on the same day. The previous contract wasn't changed, at all. Nothing had to be rewritten by lawyers or anything like that. The previous contract could have been read at any time. I'm busy but I read it in February. As I stated earlier a bad season probably gets Miles fired. A very good season probably gets him extended a few years. What happens inbetween? What is margin for error? This uncertainty is the problem. This uncertainty is everyone's problem.
  9. Let me get this straight...

    You're right about 10-19. More on point though, is he safe going 20-10, making the NCAA tourney and then losing the first game? Probably moreso with a 2 year extension than a 1.
  10. Contract Extensions

    Iowa has at least one kid who went there instead of here (or some other place) because Fran is going to be there for the foreseeable future. Not all kids think like this; some do.

    You can get $.05 a can in California, $.10 for a plastic bottle.
  12. When is the last time we fired anyone mid-season? When's the last time we fired anyone mid-season for not winning enough?
  13. If it's the same it will be 2.52M on April 1st of 2019. The amount is 105K per month which is $1.26M/year With a 2 year extension it would have been 3,78M at the end of 2019 and 5.04M if it had been 3.
  14. At the end of the day I wonder if it was Miles' elevator salary that was the sticking point. If he was at 1.9-2.1M per year would he currently be at 4-5 years?
  15. http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/salaries/mens-basketball/coach/ Even extended to 5 years it would be one of the cheaper buyouts in the conference. One could make the argument that football $$ fuels the school so football should get the lionshare of money to firing coaches
  16. Next Assistant Coach

    Upon reading the article it seems like convincing member of an elite california AAU squad to come to Nebraska might have been a tough sell. Cal seems like a good spot.

    I'll be coming out with my "kids don't redshirt" PSA once we have our full roster for next year
  18. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Someone else. Some freshman almost always leaves because of lack of playing time. Maybe that's not the case if Cope and Palmer end up going pro.
  19. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    I still think we see a defection but otherwise I believe we'll see the majority of a very good roster coming back.
  20. Let me get this straight...

    Should I have used more verys?
  21. Let me get this straight...

    Miles has made a considerable amount of money now coaching where making as much or more money somewhere doesn't need to be the end all. In a very very hypothetical if Minny fired Pitino and offered Miles the job for $1.8M don't you think he'd take it?
  22. Hank Bounds interview

    I felt like it made a lot of sense for Kenya to take that job. Stability here was certainly a factor but I'd argue the most stable job anyone can find is with a new coach. Working with a Hurley and at UConn is a good gig. The area lines up with where Hunter's recruiting ties are. He's very good friends with assistant Kimani Young. The issue with this contract isn't Hunter leaving; assistants leave. The issue is finding Hunter's replacement.
  23. Hank Bounds interview

    We know that SE was shopping last year because Lee B felt confident enough with his information to at least name guys. I can't say or not say if Moos was kicking the tires on other coaches but it hasn't occur to the point that the local scribes are kicking around anyone's name except for Altman. Just like it's harder to recruit when you have less years on your contract than any other coach in the B1G, it's harder to look at new coaches when you currently have one. We truly won't know what we have with Moos in terms of hiring a new guy until it happens. Otherwise I'd suspect that the timing of this interview and the movement of Sip in the last month to the 'Line must be drawn here hardliner' club to be PSAs for the athletic department.
