  1. Husker Athletics Priority

    They referred to it as the "No Biggs deal."
  2. Let me get this straight...

    I don't want to speak for people, but if Miles put up 10-19 or 20-10 and wasn't safe, why even keep him?
  3. Let me get this straight...

    I'm of the mindset that it's going to take a very good year just for him to keep his job. But then again, I was of the mindset that this year should have been "he's either your guy or not at this point." If this continues, we're going to end up with a less successful Mark Fox who spent nine years at the program before Georgia decided he wasn't their guy.
  4. Let me get this straight...

    Might be worth having the caveat that this assumes that all parties (including prospective coaches and recruits) have the same knowledge we do about the state of the program.
  5. Ed Chang

    He certainly wouldn't make that program any worse than it was this last season.

    There's also an interesting meta backstory to the production of this movie as well: http://www.businessinsider.com/netflix-movie-amateur-director-explains-challenges-casting-15-year-old-star-2018-4

    If you insist.

    This isn't going to change anything. But I'm assuming that wasn't your point.
  9. 2018-19 Husker opponents

    No room for excuses. Time to put the big boy pants on.
  10. Good point. That's assuming he makes it the full year though. At this juncture, I don't really know.
  11. The buyout stayed the same on a per-year basis. So you should expect to see that number go up from $2.52M to around $3.78M.
  12. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    Now that things are starting to settle, we can only hope Xavier has some time to reflect, see that we still have many of the same things to offer when he did commit, and he decides to stick it out with us.
  13. Let me get this straight...

    I'm curious to hear your reasoning on this. I suppose my hypothesis would be that it wouldn't really make that much of a difference to attendance. If things go south, people will dwindle but Miles would likely be gone by the end of next season anyway. But if things improve, then you've got more stability in your coach's tenure and (maybe) get one or two recruits in the time that may otherwise be hesitant to commit since Miles has such a short leash.
  14. Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    Nebraska's brand locally or nationally? And if the answer is both, I think there are different answers to that. But in crafting these questions I assume you're looking at either locally or nationally. So I was curious which one it was. On the national level, these questions are pretty straight forward. The only time people, outside of the media or informed fans, care about Nebraska basketball is: 1. When Nebraska is selected into the NCAA tournament and they either love or hate on the team since they have zero NCAA tournament wins (the majority of viewers don't even know this fact until the media brings it up and then it becomes a hot topic). 2. When they are one of the 68 teams to make their picks in their March Madness bracket. And once the season is over, they stop caring once again. The best part is that consecutive success in #2 can get you much more attention from casual fans, recruits, and coaches.
  15. Let me get this straight...

    That's eerily close to Altman's situation. Coming back to his state roots, taking over a job where the past three coaches were there for 6 years. (Sorry, I had to )
  16. Hank Bounds interview

    I think the answer you're looking for lies in how TCU has been able to use small recent successes to build upon each and every season.
  17. Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    It's not a shock. But if Moos decided he's not "the guy" then I struggle to see why dragging this out is any better for us.
  18. Nebrasketball: Our Brand

    This. What we just saw this week was Moos signaling to the coach, coaching staff, fans, recruits, prospective coaching assistants, et. al. that we don't have full confidence in Miles and he is on notice. Whether Moos was intentional or not in that message, it doesn't provide the same stability he was harping about for this program. If I were an AD and didn't want to show my cards (deciding whether to keep or fire him next year), I would have bit the bullet and netted out the contract to four years.
  19. Let me get this straight...

    I think you answered your own question here... Moos isn't a basketball guy and that's clear with his last hiring decision at WSU. He clearly doesn't have a viable replacement and is setting Miles up foe: win an NCAA tournament game or I'll spend my next 365 days finding somebody. So sad. For both parties.
  20. Yeah I get that. I think he was expecting to win fewer games but also didn't expect to play Marist and deal with such a downed Big Ten. The scheduling issue for me this past season was that we lost some games we needed to win and the margin for error was razor thin before we even hit the end of December.
  21. It sure made for a fun season to watch. I'm not so certain people are thinking that it wasn't "good enough for Husker fans" but more so not good enough to make the tournament. Aside from negative Big Ten bias from media and computers, we played a fairly mid-major schedule and it wasn't quite good enough to get us there. I would be the first to say that I'm disappointed in Miles since he was heralded as an RPI guru, but I also can't blame him either for scheduling easier this past year to help protect himself from another bad season. Doc's total wins were 17, 20, 18, 15, 19, and 12. Miles was 15, 19, 13, 16, 12, 22. Both coaches had very similar RPIs as well. If you're satisfied with beating up on the UABs or Arkansas Little Rocks of the world, then great let's get 25 wins a season. But if you want do what it takes to get into the tournament under the new criteria, it's going to take a lot more than having one excellent win on the season to get in.
  22. It just depends how big of a ditch you want the next coach to dig out of when the current coach leaves.
  23. Agree he hasn't earned a 5 year deal, but 2 years at least gets in the door for telling kids I have four years, I will be your coach the entire time you're here. It's also in the realm of possibility that Miles has another solid year and then takes his talents to South Beach elsewhere. So either way Moos is probably finding a new coach in 2019.
  24. Day and Time Contest

    Per Jon Rothstein: "Nebraska's Tim Miles has received a one-year contract extension, per a source. Deal is now through the 2020-21 season." "Edited Wednesday at 02:42 PM by AuroranHusker" Still not bad!
