If it is Hoiberg, and I believe it is, how much work behind the scenes do you think he's doing with potential recruits or current commits/current rosters players? If it is going on those guys are keeping pretty tight-lipped.

 

I can’t recall where I read/heard (maybe Gaskins interviewing Gary Sharp), but supposedly Hoiberg has already reached out to potential recruits.

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.
Do you his son transfers to Nebraska, if Fred is the coach?

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

 

I have a differing viewpoint on this.  He's choosing to spend time with and support his son and his team.  I don't see the difference whether his son is the best player on the team or the last one on the bench.  Having two kids myself, I'm learning first hand that the older they get, the less they need you as a parent.  I'm not saying Jack needs Fred right now but the opportunity as a parent to support your kids in person and in the here and now becomes much less frequent the older they get.  I have no problems at all with Fred trying to take advantage of these fleeting opportunities!

This is the most time he's had to spend with family in quite some time. He's been able to spend time with his wife and kids, do things like go to the Carribean, and get the family together to go support his son. Making the most of actually having free time.

It's not weird at all. I bet Fred hasn't gotten to see his kid play much at all most of his life since he's been coaching. Like Moos said at the press conference just be patient. I'm sure Fred is enjoying time with the family.

I don't have any problems with it either.  Just don't think it would be a big deal to be announced as the coach before he goes to watch.  It would not be taking any attention away from his soon, as his son doesn't get any attention anyway.  Thus the difference between if it were Winston that was his son.

Ah HHC... It seems like just yesterday we had our pitchforks and torches ready about the Bill Moos trip for his sons spring game at Cal.  Not calling anyone out or stirring things up, it's just interesting to see how the interests of one's son are perceived, even thought the situations are both very similar and very different!

I'm still annoyed by that.

One currently had a job to do, was employed by NU, and was noticed by both coaches and players.  Trust me when I says lot  coaches and players weren’t happy.

 

The other has no commitments and is currently unemployed.  

 

I think thats a big difference.

Here is how that conversation should go, "If you actually played any meaningful minutes in a game I'd hold off my announcement but since you don't...."

Nebraska fans are simply the best.
