Gutless statement from Moos

There's a subtle difference between transparency and undermining. IMO, Bill was really toeing the line on undermining. Does he really need to be transparent about expectations every time he talks to the press when he's already spoken with his wallet? I don't think he had to continually state his expectations when I think that was pretty clear regardless. When you continue to state that publicly, you are creating a narrative. That's what he did, all the press did was run with it and make it THE story this year at every turn. It definitely had a negative impact on the team's mentality (which isn't a ringing endorsement of the head coach).

 

 

Would speculation have been better?   If everyone knew the score as you indicate (and I do believe that everyone knew the score), then why put on a false face.

Clearly we don't see this the same way.

 

My experience in leading people is that you get WAY further with public praise and private coaching/expectation setting than with public criticism. Even in the corporate world it becomes harder to do your job if your boss isn't being publicly supportive (and that's without press and social media constantly looking for a story and churning out a narrative). Being supportive by either saying positive things or at least not saying things that can be construed as negative generally leads to better results. If you don't believe the way Moos handled this last year contributed to the negativity of the coverage and added to the funk the team went into, that's your prerogative. I'm sure we can agree that Miles didn't do a good job of handling expectations and the drama around the program and that's why he won't be the coach anymore.

 

That said, I'm not questioning the decision that appears to be made or the presumed hiring of Hoiberg. I just hope this enables our entire administration to do their job (including PR) properly without the excuse of the coach not being "their guy". For this program to be successful, we need everyone on the same page and rowing in the same direction. If a new coach is what it takes to do that, so be it.

I think this speaks in large part to how miles has ran the program.  Clean, likeable, and now showing another side with some toughness.  This wasn’t a complete no brainer by any means, and there remain people on both sides of the fence and many of us sort of straddling that fence.  This is why this is a big deal.  I think many folks feel Miles deserved good treatment on the way out at the very least.  This leads to probably making Moos actions a bigger deal than they may actually be.

It’s a unique situation. The biggest knock on Moos is, take basketball as seriously as you do football. But if he did go get Hoiberg, that would  the biggest all-in moment in Nebrasketball history.

This fan base really doesn't deserve Bill Moos. After the BS rumors regarding him being a drunk despite getting us the biggest name coach for football and now this? What a joke. 

 

As a reminder since we haven't seen bill85 in a couple of years, here's one of his past winner posts:

 


Nope gonna watch the lame duck coach flame out and hopefully the rest of the athletic department is out the door with him.

Ah yes those were the days when people defended Eichorst. This university hit a grand slam with Moos.

Hopefully with regard to coach hiring that will turn out to be true.  That doesn't mean any of his actions/non-actions can't be questioned.   And as for all rumors to be "BS", I suspect you don't live in Lincoln and know what some of us know.

Not sure I really care. He was hired to bring in Scott Frost and he did that. Hoiberg is the best hire in school basketball history. Sad Moos can do this drunk (according to you and those in the "know") While Pederson, Osborne, Eichorst, ect couldnt hire a competent coach.

So we go from “Bills an innocent angel” to “who cares if he’s the devil because he hired these coaches?”

 

Quick switch Bill.

I guess drinking “too much” isn’t a terrible offense in my mind. Maybe I don’t know the extent of it... maybe it’s affecting his performance and I don’t know it... but otherwise, it seems like something that people who already don’t like Moos will use against him. 

 

I really like Miles (a lot), but I think he has character flaws that people who don’t like him could summon up against him, too. In fact, I’m pretty certain we all do.

There's no proof but a bunch of heresay that people in Lincolon only seem to know about. Moos was brought here to bring Frost and he did that. Hoiberg is a tremendous hire. Moos has done a kick ass job. Period. The virtue signaling you guys do on here is hilarious BTW.

If I recall correctly, it was coming from some boosters who have interacted with him at events, which went beyond just drinking but also involved active hands. Am I able to verify what I heard? No.

And my point isn’t to drub them up, but rather to note that if we look at someone through the lense of their flaws first, our perspective will be skewed.

Speaking of drinking too much.    It’s 3:45 and I have a $129 bar tab already

Yet this board is defending the staff that likely put out those rumors..................bet that gets me some more down votes. BTW, I love what Bill has done with Tennis. It's about time we stop sucking at that sport

How has he done a kickass job?  Cause he had $35m and Matt Davison at his expense?  He has little to no care about this bball program along with the other ADs for 25 years.  If he does get Hoiberg I sure hope its a thorough cleansing and some support and care is put in otherwise it could get worse.
