  1. Is it time to start Roby?

    Nice call Silverback!
  2. You go too low when you attack labs. I'm guessing some of them are smarter than you. Or at least smarter than me because they turned their heads away from the game before the end. But yeah, Norm, never change!

  4. The Official Media Thread

    Agree with you on that one Norm. Additionally, I thought it was interesting hearing both Evan and Glynn talk about the increased competitiveness of practice. Kind of confirms what a lot of the offseason talk on the board has been - much more depth, leading to more competition, leading (hopefully) to more wins!
  5. I think you're dead on with both points Sam. When we made the NCAA a few years ago and had no sit Sunday, football took a backseat for a few weeks.
  6. Tim Miles Presser 10/2/2017

    I thought the comments around the one day preps was interesting. Especially how he sees it impacting the amount of zone vs man to man defense they play.
  7. Serious question ...

    Interesting take about rebounding. I hadn't really thought about it being a weakness with the length and athleticism on the roster. There won't be many times where we won't have a longer/taller lineup on the floor than we did on average last year. Rebounding is very much about "want-to" so imho that will be the x factor here.
  8. Serious question ...

    IMHO, this year we will either dance or be a total bust. I just don't see this team anywhere in between. We either gel and the talent shines through in a big way or Miles gets exposed and we have an awful season resulting in his dismissal. I'm cautiously optimistic it's the former and not the latter.
  9. Seat Yourself Process

    My time was this morning, no upgrades were available for me. There were still some seats available in the corners of the lower bowl.
  10. 2017-18 Team Goals

    I think #8 is the most important of your goals. If we eliminate that swoon the last 3 years the narrative on Miles and his tenure would be entirely different. Likely have an NIT or two under the belt and possibly another NCAA berth.
  11. Thomas Allen is N

    Last year I remember watching Bohannon for Iowa hit 3's and make an impact on the game as a freshman and wondered "why can't we get a guy like that". I'm wondering if we got a guy like that with Allen. I did some checking into his stats, here they are: http://247sports.com/player/jordan-bohannon-28352. My question is, would you be happy if Allen ended up with stats like Bohannon did in his first year? To summarize, 28 mpg, 9 ppg, 35% 3pt
  12. Offseason Potpourri

    It's a fair question. When the season first ended I thought he handled it well by getting in front of it right after the last game. At that same time, he said he would talk about it "after the final 4". In the time that passed between our last game and the final 4, a lot in the program changed (at least as viewed from the outside). The transfers changed the entire offseason dialogue. There were rumors swirling everywhere about more transfers, coaching changes, etc. Maybe it was wrong of everyone to assume that "after the final 4" meant immediately after (like that week) but especially with all of the noise about the state of the program it was either very calculated or very tone-deaf of the AD to not address the media. Even another simple tweet like "disappointed with the transfers but the future is bright under Coach Miles" would have quieted a lot of the noise. IMO, Eichorst is a smart guy and knew exactly what he was doing by not speaking about the program. He made the coaching staff's jobs even harder on the recruiting front and just fed the rumor machine. A more cynical person might think he was purposefully trying to make Miles flame out so he can hire "his guy" as soon as possible. So to answer your question "But what more are you looking for from the AD in terms of Tim Miles leading our team? What does Eichorst really owe us?" - a LOT changed since that one tweet and as the leader of a multi-million $ organization with a very active and interested stakeholder base he owes us what he promised - an update. A timely update would be even better. One thing to add, I've been a big supporter of Miles over the years. I'm now firmly on the fence on whether he can be successful. My issue with how this has been handled has nothing to do with being a "Miles guy" or a "fire Miles guy". It has EVERYTHING to do with being a die-hard Nebrasketball fan that wants to see an AD act like he wants us to be successful.
