    2018-19 Husker opponents

    On the road, no less. I was feeling too much empathy for the Lions who say Nit. Glad they finally got rid of that zero. Nevertheless, I gotta avoid the standings. We're still below Rutgers. And that's more than I can bear.

    I don't see any of this. First of all, I don't see the analogy to the end of the Pelini era, which was at least as much about attitude, image and behavior as it was about winning. I suppose the only connection could be the lack of support from the ADs. I see it closer to the how the Riley era ended--a whole bunch of losses on the court/field and not many problems outside of that. Not sure where you're getting some big fracture or side-taking. If we keep losing, there won't be a "significant portion" of the fan base very vocal in opposition to moving on from Miles. Certainly around the athletic community in Lincoln right now there is frustration and disappointment, but not much dissent. Certainly a feeling of inevitability rather than protest. Now, your scenario could play out if we rally somewhat but not enough to save Miles. Say we win 5 or 6 and that isn't enough. Then there will be more division out there, but it's as likely we win 0-2 and this thing goes down without a whole lot of dissension. I think it is likely that moving on from Miles won't be a major source of "fracture". The issue will be in the new hire. That one ain't gonna be easy.

    While Moos has done great things for Nebraska football, thus far, here’s a “no confidence” vote on his basketball capabilities. Here are two reasons why: 1. Washington St.’s record over the past seven seasons (his hire is still there) is terrible—truly terrible!!! Here is that under-.500 record: 2018-19: 8-14 so far 2017-18: 12-19 2016-17: 14-18 2015-16: 9-22 2014-15: 13-18 2013-14: 10-21 2012-13: 13-19 2. Moos has exhibited, from the beginning, a passive/aggressive approach toward Tim Miles. If he wanted Miles gone—just fire him already. Instead, he kept Miles on the payroll but undermined him every now and then. And here we are, wallowing in disappointment. Incomprehensible!!! Think of it this way: Kenya Hunter left because he saw the handwriting on the wall . . . and because that happened, we have Amir Harris, instead of Xavier Johnson. Here’s hoping Moos has a viable plan for the future of Nebrasketball. And here’s a “no confidence” vote regarding that hope!

    I have been reading the posts in this thread with a lot of interest and wasn't quite sure I could add anything to the discussion but... One of the greatest challenges of the human experience is that we have the ability to assign meaning to things. In other words, we can see an event and interpret a meaning either through the event itself or the expectation of what may happen in the future. I suppose forums like HHC wouldn't exist otherwise. I mean, you can only discuss the actual game for so long, right? I'm not sure what will happen in the future. I can say this team is currently not well-coached and to be honest, I think most of us vastly overrated the quality of the players. I include myself in that as much as anyone. I hear a lot of talk about "talent" but I'm not so sure a talent discussion for NU basketball isn't a relative thing. Yes, we probably have better basketball players in our starting rotation than we've had in a very long time...but in the context of competition, is the team really that talented?

    I will always be a Nebraska basketball fan. At 67, I a running out of time to see NU notch one victory in an NCAA Tournament. Don’t think that is asking too much. I was cautiously optimistic about this season but was never convinced we were a sure thing to make the Dance. Our lack of quality depth was my major concern. Coach Miles will have my support if he is retained. If he is replaced, the new coach will have my support. I do retain the right to be critical of poor play, poor decision making and poor effort in either situation. May the Huskers have some good fortune before the season ends and a better shooting eye.

    i didn't say he was going to. i just said i've heard other players have reached out to him. i also don't see how his draft stock has gone up from last year. he's averaging 1 more point and 1 more rebound in an extra 6 min per game. his assists and blocks have actually gone down, and all his shooting percentages have gone down.

    Maybe coach Mike Hopkins would want to coach in a more nationally recognized conference.

    One of the odd things about Mile's tenure is it seems the expectations were elevated without much increase in success. I would say we aren't a program that should expect to make the NCAA tournament. The 2nd year run to the tournament (and facility upgrades) almost set him up for a higher chance of failure. I'll be curious what the expectations reset to with a new coach.

    The bandwagoners are getting off. The media is turning against the team. The expectations for this team have disappeared. Part of me wants to say "now when they least expect it, it's time to go on a run!" Another part of me is nostalgic knowing that only the diehard fans remain. Soon the threads dissecting how it's still possible get the 6th seed in the conference tourney. Either way, this is Nebrasketball. To all the tortured souls who have been on this 2 decade journey with me I salute you!

    If the long term stability of a coach is a priority for a recruit, they probably put more research into it than waiting for OWH articles to appear.

    No. He didn’t leave for a “better job.” And problems with Moos’s basketball leadership go beyond the contract: it’s a general negativity that overshadows everything positive.

    INDIANA game thread 2-3-19

    Couldn't agree more with @kansashusker. We have any number of players that can make the big three, Kissinger, Maddie, etc, etc. When they are falling it's fine, but we are just too inconsistent (4-23; 18.2%) in both our shooting, and rebounding, to think we can (or should) rely on the Three Pointer. And all those missed FT's. Indiana's offense is better (and more consistent) in the paint. They drive to the basket (make it) and get a Plus One. So many times on our drives we Don't make the basket and (if there's a foul) Might make the FTs. Looking at the stats, shooting %s and all, the perplexing thing to me is how we can even still be in the game with a chance of winning at the end. It Must be the team's characteristic GRIT; NO QUIT attitude.

    You can still see flashes of that talent for minutes at a time, even now. Yes, I think they are. But obviously how you define "talent" is a bit key, too. But I see it as athletic talent missing the software to make it work. I think they are talented. What I don't think they are is particularly adaptable. Palmer is literally playing exactly the same way he has since he came into the league. He's show little inclination to change his game as the league has adapted to him. Others as well. Our dogs need to learn new tricks. They are so predictable at this point that even clubs with less talent can ruin their day right now.

    Yeah, that was said after Joe passed away, after Moe walked out after a tournament appearance, after Danny loss favor with the masses, after Barry left for greener pastures and after Doc was fired. Trying not to be an **hole, but I have heard the same rhetoric over and over. Coach K isn't going to walk in here and raise the dead. We are likely going to hire a coach and he will be a good coach (if Miles is fired) and we will have a split fan base again. Where you are optimistic that the next guy has to be better, I have lived the whole Groundhog Day experience over and over and over again. So excuse me that I am a bit pessimistic that our great coaching savior is just around the corner. Miles has his flaws, but he has brought in Big Ten level players and assistant coaches. We had this town and the state on fire until the last two and a half weeks transpired. So...crap.

    hsker4life: I read your longer statement above and agree so much! Thank you for your post. " We have the horses, but the horses also have to want to run." "I just don't want to give up on this team quite yet. Why would you? This is the best team we have had in years." My brother recruited by Harry Good (only conference championship won by NU) and played for Jerry Bush as did I. (won't talk about those win/loss records!) Followed and been involved with all 8 coaches since that time. My only comment at this time as we go thru this unexpected pain coincides with hsker4life . Our biggest problem in our down efforts is desire and "want-to". I strongly believe that with the talent we have - if they all - each individually - had the constant "get after them" internal drive of Benny Parker we would probably be undefeated!! You may disagree - but I truly believe that. I like Tim - his coaching style - his personality - what he does to front the University. But he can do whatever he can to instill - encourage - demand that the boys have the all out inner desire and effort - but when it comes down to it - it has to be in the inner selves and the chemistry and combined determination of the team players themselves.

    Interestingly, if you recalled earlier in the season, Miles seemed to agree at least in part that team psych maybe isn't his strong suit, and brought in Jack Riggins, a former Navy SEAL who also worked with the volleyball team, to help improve that area. If you follow Twitter recently, it seems Bill Moos shut that down and no longer allows Captain Jack to work with the team. Seems a shame from where I sit that someone volunteering their services (as he mentioned on Twitter he was), so costing the AD nothing, and providing what sounded like good results to the team, was prohibited from working with them any longer, especially when it appears his services could be really worthwhile right now. (And before it goes there: unless you have a knock with John Cook using the same guy, don't say "this is the coach's job".) Edited to include the tweet referenced here:

    Apropos of nothing, Pat Chambers is not making $900K. That's the last reported figure from when he was first hired (and regurgitated in 2013 because Pennsylvania's Right to Know laws don't cover coach salaries). He signed a new contract last year, but the salary number isn't available -- but I would bet (900K) dollars to donuts that he's had a raise of some sort in 7 years.

    You mean the school in the same conference as us, with a more recent tourney appearance, nit champs last year, that is closer to more fertile recruiting areas than Nebraska? Because I guarantee that is how coaches looking for jobs see it

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been Husker Basketball disappointments. We've done "If you build it" twice, and they still haven't come. This isn't a negative post. I just have no optimism left in me for this season. In an attempt to bring my optimism back, I want to give away a nice stash of Lucky Beef Jerky. Here's what I'll do: Whoever has the most upvotes on this thread will get a good supply of our jerky. The more games Nebraska wins, the more jerky the winner gets. If the Huskers don't win another game, 2 bags max. If they make the NCAA Tourney, 6 or 8. Win a game in the tourney, case for sure. Vote for your favorite post and help me get happy.

    Here is the reality. We are a bottom 5 Power conference job. We have no recruiting base, no tradition. We have good facilities, but that is a pretty bow on a pig. So, if a non hoop nerd has heard of him, he's not coming here If he's coaching in a power 6, he's not coming here. If hes coaching a higher mid major, he's not coming here. Some of the names bandied about here are ludicrous. I'm not saying its not time for a change. But if we are changing, were going to end up with a low to mid major up & comer, a retread with baggage trying to restore his reputation, or a power conference assistant.
