  1. 1. The 2005 class was recruited and coached by Barry Collier not Doc Sadler. Doc's first season coaching at Nebraska was 2006-2007. Oddly enough, the 2006 class that Barry brought in had promise with Roburt Sallie, Toni Soda, Kris Douse, and Ryan Anderson (I think Jay-R Strowbridge and Sek Henry were added by Doc, please correct me if I am wrong). 2. Doc's first real class was the 2007 group which, as I recalled, was supposed to fill roster spots with ready-to-play guys like Steve Harley and Adie Dagunduro mixed with some good high school kids in Cookie Miller, Alonzo Edwards, and To

  2. That class was a serious problem for this program. It drives home the point of how you cannot consistently make a living with juco players. Theyr'e gone too soon. Caleb Walker was a good player for us (not great, but certainly good.) But we only had him 2 years and one of those years he was basically adapting to the D1 game. Andre has struggled with injuries and weight but has had moments of decent productivity. Refuse to call him a wasted scholarship. But Kamyron Brown was a total waste. I think we had two players transfer in under Doc and neither one of them panned out. One of them

  3. I love following Nebrasketball, as a student/alum/fan it's easy to follow every sport we offer (because we have seen major success in almost all of them), but Nebraska Basketball is different it's the "True Nebraska Fan's Team", my favorite line of dear old Nebraska U. states it best "we'll all stick together in all kinds of weather". The potential has never been truly reached, but it can be seen, and one day it will reached, and I'm sure for many of us it will be quite rewarding when that day does come. As a recent graduate of Nebraska, I used to have a lot of "ins" with the athletic d

  4. Worst class? How is that? Diaz and Jones were some of the most skilled players that Doc ever recruited! How are they doing this season at Nebraska....oh wait thats right none of them are still here. Skilled or not they never lived up to any of their hype and are not here anymore so thats a wasted class when not one of them are here anymore. Last I check Bear was leading his team in scoring and did pretty well last year. It's not their fault Doc didn't use them properly and wouldn't take the leash off. And if they were here this would be a much improved team. I'd hope he was l

  5. So... You like the Shields kid, too, eh? Indeed! I know this has been posted on here before about Shavon being streaky, and if you look at his stats, there's no denying that, however if you get past the early season injury conversation there is one key stat that you can look at to show why he's on or off, that's his foul trouble look at this past month: Opp-PF-PTS-REB @MINN 1 10 3 OSU 1 6 3 PSU 4 7 3 @IU 4 5 3 MSU 1 19 13 IOWA 2 17 7 @WISC 4 2 7 @ILL 4 9 5 As a Freshman post player in the B1G it's tough to stay out of foul trouble, but when he has and is able to

  6. We seem to be putting a lot of weight on the shoulders of three or four true freshmen and 3 guys who haven't played an actual game in over a year. I expect next year's record to be similar to this year's, but the style of basketball and natural talent on the court will see a huge improvement. Naturally, not showing any improvement record-wise will lead to some idiots to start calling for Miles' head. If you are expecting a huge leap in year two, I'd recommend tampering your expectations. Ubel and Talley are going to be bigger losses than they appear

    I could see him playing the same amount of minutes as Sam Dekker at Wisconsin did at the beginning of the year and then hope he has the same progression Sam has had in conference by playing and scoring more as the year went on.

  8. Tim Miles remarked to a few boosters recently that he's concerned about fan expectations for next season being unrealistic. Losing Ubel and Talley will really hurt, we have no big men who can really play a traditional 4 or 5 role, and we have a ton of young, inexperienced players coming in. The staff definitely believes that it's possible that we actually could have a worse record next season than we do this season. Optimism can be fun, but it's very difficult for me, at least, to fathom a scenario in which Nebraska wins 10 B1G games next year. There's just no logical basis I can see

    Doc was skilled at weaving a compelling tale of woe.
