    OT: Unrest @ Wichita St.

    On another note, kind of a funny story. We took our visit to CU Boulder and coach Linda Lappe - who was let go at the end of last season - seemed very pleasant. She wanted Nicea really bad. Which was understandable bc Nicea was the #2 player in Colorado and it would've been great to sign a homegrown kid to her program. We knew she was on the hot seat and we asked her and the AD about that on the visit. They both assured us she wasn't going anywhere anytime soon at all. Anyway, at the end of the visit she wanted Nicea to verbally commit, but we refused bc we told her we were going to Nebraska the following weekend and we'd decide after that visit. So the night before we're set to go to NU Coach Lappe calls Nicea at about 10p and I can see Nicea has a kind of worried look on her face. I ask her what's wrong and she says Coach Lappe said if I go on the trip to Nebraska she's taking the scholarship offer away. Needless to say that conversation pretty much took CU out of the equation bc I was not going to have a coach bully Nicea before she's even one of her players. Coach Lappe had another losing season and was let go, and I'm sure she's not an ugly person, but the pressure had her acting otherwise. We obviously made the right choice with Nebraska and in spite of our current struggles winning, Nicea loves everything about being a Husker! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Think we hit rock bottom fellas

    Watson, Roby, Horne, Copeland, Gill, Palmer, Nana, Taylor...we'll be okay as long as no one in the main rotation transfers. But every year (Petteway, Pitchford, White, etc) someone leaves who we don't expect. We HAVE TO avoid that this coming offseason.

    Fire Miles Talk (complete BS)

    The frustration is that we are in every game. The frustration is that we seem to be right on the cusp of something big. The frustration is with the loss of these close games when everyone can recognize that we are only a few plays each game from being really, really good. The frustration IS NOT with the talent, effort, coaching or lack of a future. So as frustrated as I am, for as disappointed I am; I know, I really know that our future is bright. I am not trying to show a direct correlation, but in 1989-90 our record sucked(10-18), but you could see the talent. We then won a school-record 26 games, with only eight losses, in 1990-91. We are soooo very close this year, can next year be the turn around year???

    Fire Miles Talk (complete BS)

    As I understand blinders, they keep one from seeing to either side whereas the light at the end of the tunnel should be straight ahead. So all the crazy ones should still be able to see it. Maybe they just don't want to though.

    Yep. I 'member debating this topic with you on numerous occasions and you said he would never amount to anything and that Miles should cut bait after his freshman year and then again after his sophomore year. 'member? I do.

    True or false Bary counseled Perlman on who to hire as AD? True or false SE has a relationship with BA? True or false SE sought advise from BA on who to hire?

    Sanity Check: 1/3 thru Big Ten Play

    I am beginning to think about becoming a Jaysker. I am going insane.

    I don't know what else you want me to say, I was wrong in saying Tai should transfer. I'm not the first or the last person to be wrong about a player. Hell, our HC didn't even recruit a lottery pick 50 miles down the road. But since you are dodging your original post...Miles fate is determined by...Barry Alvarez? Again. Coo coo

    So...Barry Alvarez and Eichorst are friends? That's what I got out the above. He also recommended him for the Miami job...is Miami a threat to Wiscy? But, I'm not wearing a tin foil hat. I guess we will see what Barry Alvarez does at the end of the year in regards to Miles! Apparently if Barry keeps Miles...we can assume he thinks that's what's worst for Nebraska. *rolling eyes*.....FYI I really don't have an opinion on Eichorst one way or the other. But it's seriously out there that you believe Alvarez planted Eichorst at NU to sabotage us. Thanks for the Diaco hire Barry!
