  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Offseason Potpourri

    I completely agree with your comments about the silence and about the need for him to lay out a vision for the athletic department. The longer he waits to say something (after he already said he was going to say something), the more fuel it adds to the fire on all the rumors out there. I have zero inside information but the way he is behaving sure makes it seem like he has something in the works that he's waiting to finalize (like a new coach) before speaking. Otherwise, I see no reason why he wouldn't have already had his after the season discussion he promised us. If he is planning to keep Miles around and actually wants him to be successful, there is no reason to not publicly talk about the program and say Miles is your guy. All he's doing is crippling recruiting efforts and giving rival coaches fodder for negative recruiting. The other reason for his silence could be that he's an idiot and completely over his head. I doubt that's the case and certainly hope it's not true as that would be the worst possible thing for the athletic department.
  8. Easter

    So that means a press conference tomorrow?
  9. Interesting article about the Sudanese population in Omaha and their commitment to basketball. Dimes, if this is better off in the recruiting forum, please move. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2703000-refugee-hoop-dreams-do-come-true-right-in-the-middle-of-trumps-america?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial
  10. Unsubstantiated Rumor: Boehm retiring?

    just saying...
  11. NU to sign 7 foot Russian center

    Don't forget the 11 assists and 7 steals per game. I heard he's the best point-center in the history of the Siberian league!
