Woo Woo here comes the Hype train!

Recommended Posts

It’s now being debated on the radio if Fred Hoiberg, when he steps on Campus will be the greatest Nebraska Basketball Coach ever. Let’s overlook the fact his record would be 0-0 & people like Cipriano & Nee coached here nearly 15 years each. It reminds me of last summer when people wondered if LeBron James was the greatest Laker ever...

That would be #44 Jerry West, the Logo!  In my mind anyway.

No, it’s a funny question. Having the best resume, which Fred arguably would doesn’t equate to anything. The list of big name Coaches who are monumental flops in a new position is too lengthy to mention.

another reason why people should only listen to music on radio. 

 

I still can't figure out how talk radio became cool again. And I hope I never do. 

I mean, talk radio has been a pretty big deal for about 30 years or so...

There are flops.  There are also successes

And it doesn’t take much on one to be the best we’ve had

254 wins by Nee to 253 by Cip. yeah, the NCAA *win, that's always the "thing" missing. It'll happen... I know it. GBR !!!

This.  A hire of this magnitude simply doesn't happen to Nebrasketball.  EVER.

He would be the best coach we've ever had. When have we ever had a coach who at the LEAST is a top 20 college coach and in my opinion a top 10 college coach.

I'm pretty sure everybody on this board is saying he'd be the best coach we've ever hired. But like most investment bankers know, past performance is no guarantee of future results.

 

Regardless, excited to see what he can do.

I appreciate your optimism, but top 10? I could rattle off WAY more that without even making much of an effort. I’ll be thrilled if we hire him, but I’m not all wide-eyed and blown away by his resume. He had a nice run at ISU, but he’s no Johnny Orr, Norm Stewart, Billy Tubbs, Jack Hartman etc. Like John Houseman use to say, “ We make our money here the old fashioned way, we EARN it.”

You think that's hype, Handy.... Wait til you see the white smoke billowing from PBA once the new coach is anointed.

Like when the Cardinals elect a Pope, are you suggesting?  (Sorry, I'm Protestant, or at least non-Catholic, so never paid too close of attention to the process)

It means that we'll likely see Miles standing outside of the PBA to see who the new coach is, since he is always in fear of retribution. :lol:
