    But not all or even most of those 97 loses happened on end of game situations. Different conversation.
  2. Let me get this straight...

    I understand where you are coming from and I am not disagreeing or disparaging your opinion. But....for me, I am not OK with Moos putting all of his attention on football. I choose basketball over football all day long and from my point of view he didn't just not give it the attention it deserved, he went out of his way and hurt the program going forward whoever ends up coaching the team two years from now.

    Then I’m slow because I don’t know what that is supposed to tell me. How many of those fans actually know that a one year extension is not necessarily a good thing. I heard on the Carriker Chronicles Adam say he supported the one year extension because it was an extension and he saw that as support for Miles. Some people voted yes on the extension as a sign of suppprort, some were supporting Miles and some were supporting Moos and some likes that they thought it showed little support for Miles and some thought that one year was what he deserved after the six he put in so far and all of my musings here are simply conjecture. There’s not enough detail in the poll to really tell you anything at all.

    I know everyone on this board wants to talk about the big picture, but not everyone is that involved in Nebraska Basketball. To the casual observer, the team just won 22 games and certainly, they would have no sense of a flop having taken place.
  5. I think you make a good point but Kenya choosing to move from Georgetown to Nebraska means at least he doesn't always make job decisions base on visibility and upside.

    When they announced the one-year extension, my son sent me a text that said, "It's like the university doesn't want to be good at basketball." You are correct. It doesn't matter how much confidence Moos has in Miles behind the scenes. This has been handled terribly out in public.
  7. My perception

    I start a thread bemoaning the negativity, immediately followed by numerous negative posts on said thread. Might as well take the thread down.
  8. My perception

    Perceptions are subjective and I understand, big picture, big picture, big picture. My perception of what is going on right now is that there is more negativity, definitely on this board, surrounding the basketball program right now coming off a 22 win season then Doc’s last year. Perception is one thing, perspective is another.

    I think you mistook my admitting to I really have no idea if he can coach a lick for sarcasm. And you mistook the “sour grapes” as well. It was my first reaction reading your first post but after reading your reply I was saying you seemed to be implying that you know things that I do not. When I coached I was able to attend quite a few “closed” practices ranging from Nee to McDermott to Altman to Doc, etc. But I do know if I tried to show up to a practice now I wouldn’t be allowed in, therefore I also assume then you have more pull or connections than I do. I worked for a couple of guys that knew what they were doing and was a head coach for awhile as well. I know that different coaches have different styles and some delegate more than otheres but the head coach has the final say and even if it’s not their call, the final responsibility for everything including in-game adjustments. So maybe we are splitting hairs here but no matter who has what designated job title and responsibilities or whose idea it was, ultimately the responsibility and blame or credit falls to the one with the biggest pay check. So I wasn’t trying to call you out and I had no sentences that ended in a question mark because I wasn’t asking any questions. Your response is written in such a vague way, I can’t really tell which thing I said that you find so hilarious. I really don’t like baseball and follow it not at all so your Erstad reference also went over my head. I take it the Huskers are not doing so well this year. I can say that based on your over reaction, I’m glad I don’t work for you. I’m too old to have that kind of stress in my life.

    Again I'm curious to how many practices you've seen since Miles has never really had open practices. And I don't know who you are talking to either. I do know that in-game adjustments are the responsibility of the head coach an not an assistant. Admitting that without knowing these things I have no real idea how you came to this conclusion and my first instinct was to dismiss your opinion as sour grapes. So I'm sticking with I don't know.
  11. Kenya Hunter

    Not trying to be provocative, I seriously would like to know how you know he can't coach?
  12. Kenya Hunter

    Non-compete clauses are also a thing. You are perfectly within your rights to think LOI's should be eliminated and students would be able to move at any time, but right now this is the system we have and he did sign a legally binding document. What happens in a free market economy when contracts become only suggests and are not legally enforceable?
  13. Kenya Hunter

    Why would we be dragged through the mud? We would be the only one of the three parties, NU-Kenya-Xavier that would be holding up their part of a legally binding document. If I was making the call I wouldn't even think about releasing him. Now I'm not even a big enough jerk to pull this one but if he showed up and wouldn't perform you could redshirt him so he would lose a year of eligibility when he left. Now we would deserving of being dragged through the mud if we tried to pull that one.
  14. Kenya Hunter

    They just fired their coach so unless worst case scenario that probably means that the staff will be back for two years. After that, there is no job security in the coaching profession.
