Given the current list of proposed of mayoral candidates for Lincoln, I for one, would be willing to cede the election to Fred. 

 

Fred the Mayor and T.O. the Governor with, of course, Frosty as the Lt. Governor. Sounds good 'nuff.

 

?

Due diligence.   Season was spiraling.   Was just being prepared with arguably the number one coaching prospect this year 

Exactly. What helped us Fred didn't have a job. Moos didn't have to be sneaky and use a go between. He could simply pick up the phone and have a "how's it going conversation"

Especially Painter? I dunno about that one... He's taken Purdue to 3 straight Sweet 16s and has finished in the top 4 of the Big Ten in 10/15 seasons. 

 

Also, I'm not entirely sure why nearing retirement would discount coaches from being on a Top Ten list. If we want to do Top Ten Coaches Who Will Still Be Coaching in 2025, we can. It's just not the list I was making.

Nebrasketball had PU on the ropes in Lincoln, but the Boilers find ways to win close games. That's one sign of great coaching, for sure. Painter's a great coach.

Ty's a little late to the party.

 

"What? They're going to pay $4 million a year? I'd take that job."

 

 

Somewhat of a puff piece to promote Lue. Maybe LeBron will want Tyronn once again. Who knows.... I do know he ain't coming back to dear old Nebraska U.

You can't run a 'Tyronn Lue is interested in the Nebraska job' piece before Miles is let go without making Lue look like a villain to some

Not sure this needed a separate thread so I'll just put it here. Sipple column in LJS this morning sort of gives rationale for why Lue may not fit in with Moos' criteria. Pretty much BS stuff, but as non-official spokesman for UNL, it is certainly not a ringing endorsement by Sip. And for those who read the editorial page, the LJS board of editors gave a nice sendoff to Tim Miles today.

So should i be cheering for a Sparty loss tn? If that happens is he announced on Monday? (If he is the next HC)

 

Seems like the deeper Mich St goes the more time other teams have to contact Thomas Allen and talk to our current commits, more time for Roby to lean towards the draft over a senior year, etc.

Realistically, Michigan State's performance in the tournament should have no bearing to when a coaching announcement is made. Regardless, it would be a shame if Moos doesn't lock down a coach before the Final Four, because that would be a missed opportunity with all of those coaches networking events and meetups.

He will. Might even be today. Announcement.

Couldn’t Hoiberg do all of those things without an official announcement, basically telling everyone that “I’m the coach but we’re keeping it quiet until my son is done.”

Timing is huge, I think that is why we're waiting. It serves two purposes, one Hoiberg can enjoy a weekend with his family without being "New Nebraska HC", but also we get more bang for our buck with an announcement right before Final 4 festivities get kicked off. While Nate Oats to Bama will be second page news, Hoiberg to Nebraska would be one of the big storylines at the Final 4. 

 

But you're right in the sense that you don't want to wait until AFTER the final 4. I think Moos gets it right though, his timing has been thoughtful and well executed these last few weeks. He's had his ducks in a row.

I think Larry Eustachy already has this strategy on lock down

This son thing is a little odd to me.  If his son was Cassius Winston it would be a little different.  

I find it a bit odd too.  I love the fact Fred wants to follow his son's team, but it's not like Jack plays.  He played the last 14 seconds last Saturday in a mop up role.

Maybe he doesn't think it is right to wear Michigan St. gear as our coach.  I wouldn't have a problem with it under the circumstances.
