Not at all. Its more about the pompous response that there is absolutely no logical way it couldn't not be Hoiberg ? 

Nice winky face. Apologies for a mere hypothetical coming across as "pompous" At least you're Cornfed, rock on brother. ?

Moose isn't going to make this hire. He's on thin ice himself. This hire is going to be made by Green and Bounds.  They are the decision makers in the athletic department right now. Don't be surprised if the big guy retires and returns to his ranch within the next couple months.

I posted this over on the post game thread as the debate was initially raging there:

 

What I think is unfair is that if you know you are firing Miles, then just fire him sooner than later so he can find another gig, if he wants one, and before they all get filled in the coming weeks.  I know that Miles is under contract and obligated to coach as required by his contract.  However, if you are holding him just to buy time or let him finish the season in the NIT, that just seems like bad business.  Fire him and name Lewis interim coach if Miles is gone regardless.  Miles deserves better than this.  He has been nothing but classy and has never done anything to embarrass the University...read between the lines on that one.  This was so predictable of an administration that has given two shits about this team and coaching staff for the last couple seasons.

Eichorst hides behind his desk and doesn't give any public support to the basketball staff.

 

Moos on the other hand is much more vocal, but instead of publicly showing his support (or lack of support) for the basketball staff, he just keeps saying "I'll make a decision at the end of the season."

If we are in the hunt for a new coach, I would think the following qualities would be pretty intriguing:
1.  Has head coaching experience taking a mori-bound major conference program to the Sweet Sixteen

2.  Knows the Big Ten conference landscape intimately, yet...

3.  Gets paid less than the current NU coach and doesn't have a big contract to buy out, and...

4.  Isn't a sexy hire this year, so is under the radar with respect to other major conference program openings.

 

If I were Bill Moos, I would be falling over myself to talk with this person.  And of course, there is one coach I know of today who has all the attributes above.  You know who I'm talking about, right?

Seems that person is already taken...

OK, there are two people with those attributes.  I actually wasn't thinking Matta.  This person hasn't been mentioned (incredibly) in the first 63 pages of this thread.

Actually, can't say that Ohio St was a mori-bound program, so Matta doesn't qualify for #1 entirely.

Hoiberg was at the MSU/OSU game today in a Spartan shirt. Get the hunch the future Nebraska basketball coach wouldn’t do that. Unless he stayed to watch our game.

 

Altman is out, Matta rumored to UNLV, Hoiberg either in a great disguise scouting our roster or laughing out loud at the thought of coaching us. Feels like our dream hires are running out quickly. Hope we have a plan already in place.

Not directed at you. Just in general...

 

Are you surprised??

 

We've been through this song and dance for decades. We have our dream hires. They turn us down (allegedly... I just assume the ADs are doing their sales pitches to these people and we just don't get them).

 

Then we go to the B-listers. Half of their agents likely sat "this is a dead end job." The other half say "hey, you'll be in a Power 5 conference and likely get 6 years." Then we end up with coaches who have riskier resumes. That's just where we are as a program.

 

We'll just see how it plays out on Sunday. Although I suspect that Moos is looking for a new coach but has been unsuccessful.

Hate to see the guy attending a game for the team his son plays on.
