Don't read the national article comments... There's a lot of "you could never pay me $25M to even live in Nebraska."

Yeah just unreal, honestly I think a lot of the talk from the B1G/Big 12 foot print is a ‘oh $hit Nebraska just took things to the next level’ but reading the Ames writer say Hoiberg could wait for something “juicier” was lazy writing, you gotta realize outside of ISU, this is probably the place he is most comfortable.

Lincoln is one of the best college cities in the country. Most university towns are cow towns. 

 

How could you ever recruit anyone to Tumbleweed Lubbock? Or West Idaho Spokane? Or 42,000 West Lafayette? Or Toilet Paper Auburn? Those teams must be awful.

 

We're in dire trouble.

My gate swings a ... different direction than that, actually. But Coach Amy ain't bad. And if Cook ever retires, is there any way they can hire KRob? I mean if looks is among the criteria ...

Maybe Cook is just keeping the seat warm for Jordan Larson?

Some people want Erstad gone though. And some are on this board.

 

Conversation for another thread and another day, but with Moos firing tennis and golf coaches for performance who knows what will go down on the baseball front. Been some exciting games this season so far though! Speaking of Texas Tech... :lol:

Anybody happen to know what it would take to migrate from 300 level to 200 or 100, besides just throwing a bucket of cash their way?  I've tried the seat yourself process in the past to see if I could get lower seats, but when it opened up to me (a 300-er), all the lower seats were already gone with the wind.

You pretty much had to be a donor for basketball only in the Devaney Center days. That’s when they separated football donation level from basketball. People like me in the C level were then given 100 level seat options. Can’t imagibe their is much turnover in those seats since the donor level is reasonable. Think it’s $300.

So does a General Athletic donation that is paid for football tickets help me out if I’m trying to get tickets? Or will I be behind because I have donor points but not basketball points?

I think it all counts the same.

I don’t think it matters now. Its what the AD department had to do to make sure the lower bowl would be full. The old A and B sections at Devaney were full of football donors that rarely attended or were JaySkers. The tickets were cheap so of course they would buy them. When they moved to pinnacle they rewarded the basketball donors (rebounders club ect.) and made football donors also donate for basketball seats which is still the rule today so.........IF there are 100 level seats available (which I don’t think have been since the arena opened) you would have to hope your points get you a chance at those seats then pay a $300 donation per seat for 100 level and I think it’s $750 to be in the club seats which are glorified 100 level seats.

Nope.  The separated donations when they opened PBA.

 

Football donors would get tickets and then never show up.  The 100 level was always half empty at the bob

Decided to peruse some other (Iowa, Michigan and MSU) B10 boards and 99% on Iowa board said no way would Hoiberg show up because it's Nebraska. But since hire was announced most of them are sure Fred will best Fran since he already has a 4-1 record versus Fran. As for the other 2 boards the consensus is it is a waste of money as Hoiberg is just here to collect the check. Also it is impossible to recruit to Lincoln and basketball at Nebraska will never be any good. I guess I didn't realize East Lansing and Ann Arbor were vacation get aways like Blacksburg, VA and Lubbock, TX.
