    Agreed. Seasonal evaluations are bodies of work. Ratings reflect that totality. But that's not how games are played. The problem with "freezing" wins and losses in time, however, is that early in seasons too many teams aren't accurately evaluated and that's why the current system exists. There is no perfect way to do this. You either risk beating a lowly rated team early that actually was much better than anticipated or you beat a really good team that gets a few injuries and has their season derail. The only good news is that this system's imperfections are suffered by everyone else, too, and most programs run the same risks.

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    The big box that Miles doesn't check off in my book, is the ability to win the ones that matter. That's not to say he hasnt won big games - but it seems like if we need a win, or it's a game we need to be up for, we fail to execute. If we make the dance, then it means he was able to execute enough of those must win/big games - and TM deserves a nice extension. If we don't make the dance, we will have proven to not win enough big/must win games (even with an impressive roster) and it will be time to move on. I've said it before on here, I don't care if we look like those Wisconsin teams that won 45-35 or the current Duke team that wins 95-85....It just comes down to winning.

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    I know that he's had a lot of success but in the last two years in what is essentially the worst Power 5 conference with Nike U resources he has been about to slightly less successful than Miles. Why do people think he's going to waltz into the Big 10 towards the end of his career with easily less resources and have success? Not sure why he'd want to unless he wants to get away from the laundry list of off the court issues that have happened during his tenure in Eugene.

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    There are still a lot of games to be played and lots can happen. Make the dance and, especially, win a game when there, and Miles does not get fired; fail to make the dance, and he almost certainly will. I don't know which scenario will occur and I think either is a possibility at this point. But let me ask this: Let's say the first scenario occurs and we reach the dance and win a game. Miles is still who he is. And, for all you people who have been critical of his "middle school" offense and inability to recruit a big man and keep guys for 4 years etc. etc., he's still going to be that guy. That ain't gonna change. So, I'd like to see a show of hands: Even if this team reaches the dance and wins a game once they get there, do you still want to see Miles let go? If not, why would you want to keep a guy who continues to run a "middle school" offense, etc?

    Everyone needs to step up their game. Palmer got most of his points against MSU after the outcome was decided. He has improved his passing and should look to deal more. Allen needs to shoot.

    We need to handle their big guy Wesson and play with some passion and desperation.

    2019 Recruiting

    They need a HS big and a grad transfer big for next year. We have two open slots as is, barring an early departures/transfers. Waiting on Hugely is negligent at this point in time. You don't need another big in 2020, you need at least two in 2019. 2020 will take care of itself at that point in time.

    If we hire a new coach it will be top 25 $$$. If TM wins a tournament win he will more than likely get paid like a top 25 coach.

    Is this a defense first team or offense first team? Are we looking to outscore teams and do enough of offense or throttle teams and do enough on defense. Does that change based on the opponent? Do we know?

    I'd say from 6-8 points and that range moves a point if tonight's game is a blowout for some team.

    Good point. With Isaiah, passing up the 3 is probably a confidence issue. With Tom, I would gather that it's more likely a deferral issue. Nearly every time Tom pulls the trigger, I think the ball is going in. He needs to let it fly. The other thing with Isaiah is that he often gets his iso's 25 feet from the basket. It is really hard to get to the rim taking your defender off of the dribble from that far out. I'd like to see more high post or turn and face baseline iso opportunities for Roby.

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    That is true. Have heard the same thing. Have also heard that Miles really wants to stay here and if he wins a tournament game he will take the contract offered to him by Moos. He will not leave on his own. IMHO no one else will offer him what we are currently paying him or what we would offer him in a new contract, which is why the talk of him leaving on his own is not realistic.

    We will be about an 8 point favorite I would guess so really no excuse to lose this game at home. Should be a good matchup for us as Ohio St does not shoot the ball all that well. My concern would be Wesson hammering us down low and on the glass.

    Currently on a 4 game losing streak as their offense has hit the skids. Hosting Purdue tonight. The most obvious thing that sticks out is Wake Forest grad transfer Keyshawn Woods struggling in conference. Defensively they've been putting guys on the line a lot in conference but that's somewhat hard to gauge as they've been facing the teams that get to the line a lot. 6'8" 205# soph Kyle Young is out for Purdue with a stress fracture in his leg and unknown for our game. He's been playing 20-25 very valuable minutes for the Buckeyes and has started a lot of their games. They're not much deeper than us without him.

    If time allows, my plan is to attend this game after the Husker game on Saturday. I will be interested to see if our recruits spend any time going head to head.

    In state kids?

    I don't know the names right off the top of my head, but what do you think of the big man from Kearney, the big man from Lincoln Southeast. I know the Kearney kid is a Liberty recruit (could he play high division I?), I heard the Southeast kid is a late bloomer and is likely headed to JUCO.

    2019 Recruiting

    We can go after 2019 guys but I don't think we'll offer any if we feel we can get Hugely because of how overloaded our 2020 looks vs our 2019. Someone will more than likely transfer so we'll probably have a spot but that's why I would guess you're not seeing offers. Probably the best strategy right now is to identify guys who could be grad transfers before they declare which isn't something people with sense would admit to publicly.

    OK, lets get into this. Who did I call cowardly? Was I referring to everyone on this board or a specific group of posters? Are you in that group of posters? Let me answer for you, no you are not. I'm not sure why you think I was in anyway referencing you @HB ?

    This is the exact reason I hate the current system (albeit while happily taking it over the RPI). I know it might take a little more work, but I think the win/loss quad should be locked in at the time you play the game, not at the end of the season, as though the outcome of the game doesn't play a factor in determining the final ranking at the end of the year or that the team you beat or lost to early on (or your own team) is the same at the end of the season as they were at the beginning. So for us, Clemson and Indiana would clearly remain Quad 1. But any noise Seton Hall or whoever else makes after we played them winds up being kind of immaterial. Rutgers stays Quad 3. Maybe I'm looking too narrowly, but that seems a lot more fair and accurate to me than to wait until the end of the season (which might include sickness, injury, suspensions, etc) to determine how good the win or loss you had two months ago was.
