  1. I knew it wasn't the motivation, I was just trying to figure out if it was a part of the reason the figure has improved so drastically under Miles.
  2. I know absolutely nothing about APR, but does our perpetual open scholarship that inevitably goes to a walk-on help? If so, how much?
  3. Can Xavier recruit him before we release him??
  4. I don't think we're continuously losing our best players... just high-value players. I agree some have overstated that we are continuously losing our best player(s). And I agree you can explain each one individually, but the aggregate isn't acceptable. Fair or not, the coach is ultimately responsible for it. Also, when explaining each one individually, there might be more to the story than MJ wanted to shoot 3's and we wouldn't let him... Morrow wanted to be a wing, and we couldn't give him the opportunity... etc. Again, if it was a single case and not a chronic problem, I wouldn't think anything of it.
  5. Your last paragraph is absolutely correct and trumps anything I'll say... But it doesn't seem like the "good teams" have starters or really high-value players leaving. It seems like the players they have leaving are easily replaced by players on their rosters. Obviously I have no facts to back this.
  6. I agree with what you're saying, Norm - each transfer should be looked at on an individual basis. But we also need to consider the aggregate sum. We can probably explain away each individual transfer situation in a way that absolves the program of blame (or at least puts the majority of the blame on the player). But the frequency of high-value players transferring isn't acceptable or sustainable. And when the problem is chronic, isn't the leader is ultimately accountable? Thank God I don't manage/lead 18-year-olds... and I feel for Miles and all coaches that have to deal with the egos... but that's kind of the nature of the beast.
  7. The fact that it's starters who were most likely going to start next year is concerning. One was a legacy... both were lunch pail guys... neither were thought to have ego issues. Someone said kids transfr from Kansas and Duke and everywhere else... but starters?? *I get I'm jumping to conclusions (venting) before anything is official with MJ.
  8. It's not like Hooper is a member of the program (that I know of) leaking the information, and he's clearly not the only on posting who's heard it. I hear the rumors are on Twitter (though I don't have it).
  9. Ya - I failed to phrase that properly. I did not mean to say that everyone in the fire-Miles-now camp isn't level headed. There are extremists and pragmatists in both camps.
  10. I dont disagree with your general premise (he might see New Mexico as a "chance out"), but I don't think Eichorst has commented on whether Miles will be extended this year or not, and we've had one legacy recruit transfer out.
  11. Norm, my only "inside information" comes from this board (which tells you what it's worth)... but it seems like more than a few people think there could be more attrition (obviously the fire-Miles-now crowd thinks this, but I've seen some more level-headed posters say the same). So I have two questions... 1. Why are you led to understand there will be no more transfers? (That would be welcome news, if it were the case); and 2. If there were more transfers (say Watson was one of them), would you change your mind? I think I'm decidedly on the fence... I'm not a fan of starting over, but there are numerous reasons why my confidence in Miles is waning. I'm all for one more year (assuming we keep and add to the rest of our current roster), but would need to see a GOOD year next year. FWIW... I was one of "those" people who fought for Doc, (to a lesser extent) Collier, and Nee to the bitter end... I'm typically a "support who's here" kind of guy.
  12. Short of Mark Smith, which addition would be good enough news to offset the loss of Morrow?
  13. So 99% of the time, when a kid transfers out, I blame the kid came the coach. But go look back at the things we said about the kid when we recruited him: lunch pail guy... not on social media... considers himself a Nebraska kid... parents' alma mater... To me, everything he did he confirmed what we said. A Nebraska kid with Nebraska parents who started last year and was going to start this year found reason to leave, sit out a year, and play elsewhere. Not playing time, not a overbearing dad, not an ego... to me, this one points to the coach. And that's unfortunate. *caveat* I have no inside knowledge, and no idea what's going on in Ed's head. I'm venting.
  14. The Cyclones have more history, and there is more in-state talent... but I generally agree. Also, for those in the crowd atmosphere thread, I've been to Hilton about ten times over the years, and they've always had a pretty outstanding atmosphere.
  15. I think I've said this before on here, but I think HuskerVision could do a much better job... but I think part of the problem is that we're trying to squeeze sponsor gimmicks in first and foremost. I used to go to UNO hockey games more often, but I thought their video/sound crew did a great job of creating an atmosphere. Not to be nostalgiac for The Bob, but we had some videos there (Chees, Tommy Boy, etc.) that would beat most of what we do now.
