Was one of Doc's draw backs his poor recruiting?  If he comes back as an assistant it must be due to X's and O's

 

I would say this is true on both counts. He did get us some good players. For example, getting Maric to return, Ryan Anderson, Brandon Ubel and Lance Jeter among them. But remember, too, players like Shang Ping, Andre Almeida, Jorge Brian Diaz and Christian Standhardinger? There is a reason one of our best teams under Doc were known as the Mighty Mites! Not saying it wasn't fun but it isn't a formula for consistent winning as a D1 school.

There is a need to reiterate the fact that Coach Miles IS a good coach.  He would not have worked up to this level in the business if he was not a good coach.  He was in fact, coach of the year just a

A long time ago, I used to watch every game and soak up every word the talking heads said, every point, all the analysis, all their expert opinions, all their insider insights, all their unnamed sourc

I just hope the next coach, whoever it is, works as hard through adversity as Tim Miles does.   The writing has been on the wall for awhile.  It would have been easy to just cash in his chip

If Southern Miss fires Doc Sadler this year, they'd be making a huge mistake.  He inherited a lot bigger mess from cheater Donnie Tyndall than most people realize.  They're still under scholarship limits until '20-21.  Doc's program has shown improvement every season. And he's done it clean. This year, they reached 20 wins and finished 2nd in their conference and they're on their way to the CBI. Why in the actual heck would Southern Miss let Doc go?

 

Southern Miss is going to the CBI so doubtful you do that and then fire him. He would need to pull a Molinari and quit.

He's already been an assistant for Fred at Iowa State so I'm assuming whatever role he had there it'd be the exact same thing in Lincoln. I don't know how much he was involved in recruiting at Iowa State but I'd think it wasn't much.  

Yeah, I don't think I'd be on board going the 300 lb. Brazilian route again.

His assistants sure can

 

Exactly. Puts a little more dependence on keeping those assistants happy or finding suitable replacements when they leave.

 

That's why I'm curious to see how the contract shakes up. Not for the next coach, but for the rest of the staff. The administration did make some bigger strides with Miles' staff compared to the rest of Nebrasketball history.

Doc was an average-at-best recruiter. Of course, Mable Lee Hall was his practice facility. Spinelli got most of his good recruits. 

 

Ge was fantastic at defensive scheming. I would LOVE to have him back for that.

In regards to Hoiberg, what makes him such an exciting hire to most people here?  I am not saying I wouldn't want him at all.  I possibly just don't see it as quite the home run that others do.  I did just look at his 5 year run at Iowa St.  It was extremely impressive.   Would he be good with player development?  I would think we would get more shooting here than in a long while(not saying much).  Just interested in thoughts from others on why this would be the right guy.  

 

Only the right hire if he brings along a good staff, we need to make sure we support the team with $$

You had some players listed corrected but I feel you have some misses on Doc's misses. Standhardinger's issues wasn't his talent but between the ears. He ended up averaging 18 ppg at Hawaii. Diaz had bad feet, didn't dunk and played with little emotion but the guy could play. Both of them are playing basketball for a living.

Spinelli was an assistant for Barry Collier.

I remember that game against KState when that tool Beasly was talking about "Going for like 50" and was promptly shut down ?

 

Beasley said he'd "go for 50" when, in fact, he got 17. And promptly lost.

 

That KSU team made it to Omaha in the Big Dance return to Nebraska in '08 to play USC & O.J. Mayo.

After reading up on Hoiberg's tactics I am much more comfortable with him.  I can see the efficiency numbers.  Why they got those high numbers is what I like.   He despises long two point shots almost as much as I do.  His defenses try to funnel those types of shots for opponents.  Doesn't play an overly aggressive brand of defense.  His defenses are designed to be able to rebound missed shots well however and avoid penetration.  This almost has to result in a little more three point shooting being allowed than I would prefer.  However, as big as he is on analytics, maybe not.  

Do you have a link? I've tried different google searches and couldn't find anything.

Quote about Saddler being fired

That was based on several weeks ago before the season's finish.   But last year he more or less got the same extension Miles did after not getting one the year before.  The same implications were there for him as they were here for Miles.  He also makes $350,000 a year.  He will make more on the bench here.
