He should owe us money!!!  What a waste buying guys like him out all of the time to leave us with a shambled program......again!

Congratulations to Tim. He'll always be one of my all-time favorite Husker hoops coaches. Wish him nothing but the best.

On a day like today, coming here to bash a guy that hasn’t been our coach in 9 months, got us our first NCAA tournament appearance in so many years I don’t remember, got us our first draft pick since

And that is so vital to the game today; the three-point shot and defending the three-point shot is crucial. ... it's something you certainly have to understand and recruit to also. ... Some of those role guys that you used to have who could be defensive stoppers, quite frankly it's hard for them to have an important role unless they can make outside shots. They have to be an offensively efficient person; they have to make those threes."

Just an observation but this board really loves it some Tim Miles.

 

The list of former Nebraska head coaches and assistant coaches that are disliked is shorter than a Burno.

 

Life is too short to wish any bad will to a former coach. I wish Miles, Smith, Lutz, Farokhmanesh, Nee, etc. all the best. Except for Collier. ;)

He really should have been the guy. I mean really should have. He was built to be our coach. He was everything quirky about Doc and Nebraska - but new age and innovative in a way. Younger, nerdy, quote machine, etc... brought the energy, the hype, and the dudes every once in a while. 

However, I can tell you all his public persona was not always the same as it was behind closed doors, in the coaches offices, or in practice. Things got toxic after some cracks in that persona started to show. 

But the idea from the beginning was perfect. And yeah, I loved the guy. Really thought he was the one 😍🥰

I believe Tim Miles was a Great Hire for Nebraska; but then again I wouldn't know since I only really began paying attention to the MBB program after he was hired as HC. 

 

Miles brought a sense of excitement, i.e. a new beginning, to the program; Right from the Start.  He didn't denigrate the players he had inherited, rather he made the most of, and got the most out of the players he had.  He made household names (in Nebraska at least), of Kye, Peltz, & Menke (not to mention names like Ubel, Almeida, Gallegos & Talley, but they were already household names.)

 

I don't know where he found the talent he did, Nebraska certainly wasn't on the radar of many high-level recruits.  Yet he Did Find them, and gave us a lot names that provided us with a lot of excitement; names like Petteway, Tai, Shavon, Benny, Roby, among so many others.  Who can forget the sinking feeling when the Huskers dropped their first four matches in the B1G in successive games in 2012/13; only to finish 11-7 in the conference, and reach the NCAAs.

 

Miles inaugurated PBA for us; We've consistently had some of the highest attendance records in the B1G.  Who could ever forget 'No Sit Sunday?'    MIles helped position us for a great future; with a High-Visibility, Name, Coach who is able to attract Top Level Recruits to the program

 

Tim Miles will fit in just fine at San Jose State; I wish him the same degree of success that he had at Nebraska!  :Bow:

He made some choices off the court that damaged everything, but we don't discuss that here. Also, I can tell you all his public persona was not always the same as it was behind closed doors, in the coaches offices, or in practice.

Okay. I'll ask. What are the choices he made off the court that damaged everything? I loved Tim from what I saw and wish he could've done big things, but now you've piqued my curiosity.

Third rail, stay away. Like politics at Thanksgiving.

Late to the party but of all the old coaches he is my favorite and hope he finds a lot of success in the new gig.  No clue about the off the court stuff, don't care, won't throw stones.  In my intramural career I did a few things off the court that well, I think the statute of limitations has run out.

Good luck coach Miles!  You were fun to root for as a Husker coach, and will be again at San Jose State.  You gave us a month+ of great basketball in 2014.  2017, beat Kansas or maybe Creighton in non-con, and we're probably dancing again in 2018.  I wish you would have been able to build on that success but it wasn't to be.

Why do Husker fans dislike Collier? Honestly curious. I went to two of his camps and he was as soft spoken and gracious as could be. Of all the Husker coaches in my lifetime, I always thought Doc and Barry were the most genuine.

If he'd said that 5 years ago, he might still be our coach.

Not sure. I think he may have come across as standoffish or aloof and didn't seem all that personable, but I didn't ever meet the guy in person. I personally liked the hire at the time and truly thought he would get it done at NU.

He seemed to be a quiet, confident guy. But I think it was all genuine.  Tim Miles knows people like his self-deprecating, goofy shtick, but I've heard enough about him to know that his public persona is not genuine. Interesting what people are drawn towards.

That's not fair.  I know him, have spent plenty of time with him, and his public persona is quite genuine.  Doesn't mean a guy like that can't coach his guys hard, which he could.   But he's no phony.
