    Let me get this straight...

    I actually totally agree. I am a basketball junkie but in this state I think we play second fiddle to the fans that are primarily focused on football. Our numbers are growing (just look at our attendance) but NU will always be a football school first for the majority of fans. It does seem like Moos kind of screwed with the hoops program, intentionally or not. I am not sure what to make of the whole deal. Miles has this program in a much better place than what he walked into; hopefully this doesn’t set us back too bad.

    I totally agree. I would have done option 1 the day the season ended and been done with it. Moos obviously is looking for an upgrade and it wasn’t getting done this offseason. Should have immediately put it to bed. I am hoping the uncertainty doesn’t screw up next season. I hope Moos turns his full attention to hoops next winter and makes a firm decision on way or the other.

    Let me get this straight...

    I have no problem with Moos putting all of his attention on football initially. We are Nebraska. We have been lost in the wilderness for about twenty years....he had to get it nailed down. Moving in to basketball, I don’t know how you fire a guy who just finished fourth in the B1G. Period. End of discussion. We are historically a bottom feeder in men’s hoops so this was a damn good season. Just ended poorly. I totally understand wanting to do better; I feel like we can do better but Miles may be at his ceiling. I guess I would put it this way.....you don’t fire Solich after 9 wins. It has a really bad look. You fire him after 7-7. I would have given Miles a 2 year extension and moved on. Why? Have you looked at the baseball mess? I don’t think Moos wants to replace the men’s head coaches of all 3 major programs while he is still figuring out where to pick up his mail. Miles did more with less this year. Erstad is doing less with more. He has all the advantage over our conference breatheran. He has had plenty of time. His assistants are bad and he won’t replace them. But he is a seriously famous alum..... I would not want to deal with that one. bottom line is Moos had a lot on his plate walking in the door. Kind of left basketball dangling but if he gets football right he will have latitude in the other sports.
  4. I just love to beat Iowa in anything. Period.

    Very cool! It is stuff like that which is why I enjoy college athletics much more than pro sports.

    Pre-Annual Cupcake Loss Check-In

    I don’t get too hung up on the wins and losses as far as my expectations of the team. I gauge more by how we play, which generally leads to good (or bad) win totals. To my eyes, early on we were much worse than I expected. The last 5 games have changed my perception quite a bit. We look like we have turned a corner. We are much, much better than in November. Based on that I picked exceeded. Hopefully I feel the same at season’s end!
  7. In the end, I do hate complaining about officials because those things happen. This won’t be the only game we see this year with some head scratching calls. We really need Jordy to develope and hit the inside stuff. Creighton really struggled with him on the boards to my eyes. He could have been such a factor if he was a credible threat in the low post. Foster’s 3 was a dagger in the end. I am still very proud of how the kids kept trading punches. Every time I thought Creighton was about to pull away we came back with some big shots. No moral victories but I thought I saw some mental toughness developing.
  8. I was at the game so didn’t get to see the replay. Wow that was bad. And being Watson’s 5th on top of it...... that just sucks. In real time I get why they called the foul because it was bang-bang. If they could reverse Jordy’s call in the first half, why couldn’t the officials look at this one to get it right?

    Expectations for the next 5 games?

    I was thinking it but i wasn’t going to say it. We really need to show something this year. I believe we have the pieces to make a run. We need Glynn, Copeland and Palmer firing on all cylinders by the time conference play hits. I would prefer sooner, say starting tonight! It would help so much if Jordy could get on track.

    Expectations for the next 5 games?

    Unfortunately I agree. That said, games are played in real life and not on paper. In sports there are always suprises. I would love to see us shock some people and go 3-2. We need some guys to step up in a big way.

    How bad is Indiana?

    I hear you. Sorry about posting out of frustration fellas. I try not to do that but man that was hard to swallow.

    Brady Heiman is 'N'

    I was worried that the attitude issue was that he was a kid that didn't care. Sounds like he is the complete opposite of that. I'd personally rather have a kid who is overly passionate to work with than a kid that is lazy. all in all, I am pleased that we offered and Brady accepted.
  15. Wow. That is nuts. I'm calling it now.....since he is 6'8", 220 lbs and an all around game he will be Billy Owens 2.0 when he is done here! Okay, maybe that is a bit much but I truly think his ceiling is in that neighborhood. Just needs to get confidence if that jumper.
