  1. Collier, Sadler or Miles

    Interesting questions. I had Sadler winning the most categories, but the categories that Miles won were by a wiiiiiiiiide margin. Overall I would take Mile over the other two, but Sadler did walk into the worst situation so who knows what he could've done with the opportunity that Collier or Miles had. Collier inherited talent from Nee but drove the program into the ground. Miles inherited the new facilities and corresponding recruiting advantages. Sadler inherited a team with no talent and the worst facilities in the conference...not exactly a fair shake.

    I'm feeling better and better about this pick.

    Damn the pain meds. And math. And mixing the two. Friday the 13th strikes again.
  6. Xavier Johnson is N

    1. Friday the 13th. 4. Got all four wisdom teeth removed, including two nasty impacted ones. 3. My favorite recruit from the last two recruiting cycles is no longer 'N.' 4. WTH ELSE CAN GO WRONG?!?!?!?!?

    Hey man, composers were the original rock stars. Have you seen the movie Amadeus? Mozart's insane partying made Mic Jagger look like a Sunday school teacher by comparison. That dude was a bad ass.

  10. What to do with Miles contract?

    Petteway, Pitchford, White, Jacobson, and Morrow were all key starters that left with eligibility on the table, just off the top of my head. Not sure why you're listing Petteway to prove your point...he chose the D-League over coming back for his senior year. Also not sure why everyone loves to discount MJ and Morrow. We finished dead last in the conference this year in rebounding margin, largely due to losing the two of them. They weren't exactly bench warmers.
  11. What to do with Miles contract?

    Historically, Miles loses his best players with eligibility remaining at an alarming rate. So I don't look at it as "keep Miles and keep players, or lose Miles and lose players." Instead, I view it as "keep Miles and probably lose some good players, or lose Miles and also probably lose some good players." Moot point based on Miles' track record. I said the same thing last year and was told how wrong I was by other fans on this board. Then we lost two starters with multiple years of eligibility remaining, even though we retained the coaching staff. I just don't think Moos can make this decision based on the potential retention of players.
  12. Ominous Tweet Re: Roster Attrition

    I don't buy the argument that transfers are more likely to happen if Miles is gone. People said the same thing last year, and my response was basically "assume that we will have significant attrition under Miles, until he proves otherwise." He still hasn't proven otherwise. And yeah, I get that transfers are super common. What is particularly vexing about being a Husker fan is that we lose our best players at an alarming rate, not just underclassmen looking for more playing time. That being said, this is likely a moot point. Moos isn't going to fire Miles because he's got too much of the budget tied up on paying Pelini, Riley, and Frost. I imagine Miles will get a small contract extension for appearance/recruiting purposes, and this will be a tabled discussion until next year plays out.

  15. Idea for NCAA Tournament

    In light of tonight's UMBC vs Virginia game, any plans to toss out AQ's are clearly not going to gain much traction.
