  1. Miles had no problem doing it 3 times.

  2. I've been searching for a thread to add my thoughts... I am truly disappointed in how this has ended for Coach Miles. I wanted him to succeed in the worst way and it pains me to no end that sometimes, the good guy doesn't win. Coach Miles has done more for Nebraska Basketball than any coach in the past 20 years and I sincerely like the man. I've had a chance to meet him and he will always be a part of simultaneously the best and worst night of my life: Back in 2014, I was invited to a private dinner at a country club in Omaha where the guest speaker was Tim

  3. I couldn't agree more that he made the smart move. Thomas Allen is a good kid and I can say this confidently after a personal interaction I had with him after the Butler game. As a lot of you probably know, about 30 minutes after home games a lot of the players come out of the locker room to see friends, family or to sign autographs for kids. We were tipped off to this nugget last year after the UTSA game. My 9 year old couldn't have been more thrilled to meet his favorite players. My son and I drive back for a game once a year but made a second trip this year over his spring break to see

    I have a differing viewpoint on this. He's choosing to spend time with and support his son and his team. I don't see the difference whether his son is the best player on the team or the last one on the bench. Having two kids myself, I'm learning first hand that the older they get, the less they need you as a parent. I'm not saying Jack needs Fred right now but the opportunity as a parent to support your kids in person and in the here and now becomes much less frequent the older they get. I have no problems at all with Fred trying to take advantage of these fleeting opportunities!

    What a joke man. Move on bro. Arop isn’t even playing in his current league. Just face it that Miles did the right thing.

    Hopefully the ongoing discussions are going something like: Moos: Still want the job? Hoiberg: You bet. Moos: Great, let's do this again tomorrow.

  10. Wow, amazing story. What a night! Regarding the Miles country club dinner, I may have attended that with you. Tim was great in that setting, and treated the fans awesome with great insight, inside info, and shared his basketball knowledge (contrary to the loud minority, he knows his X's and O's). I believe donors tried to have these dinners with Doc and Collier - just can't imagine that it would have been any fun... The good news for the future is that Miles has left everything in good shape. It's not like new coach is taking over 5 or 10 win team. 22 wins and 19 wins, just one st

    He's bitching because he didn't think Miles treated him well. Has to do with the Arop deal, I would assume. It's in another thread around here, somewhere.

  12. This is the most time he's had to spend with family in quite some time. He's been able to spend time with his wife and kids, do things like go to the Carribean, and get the family together to go support his son. Making the most of actually having free time.

  13. Isaiah Roby, in particular, is really a salt-of-the-earth type of kid. He was extremely generous with his time and attention when my 11 year old and I attended the Nebrasketball Buddies at the Hendricks Training Center back in mid-Dec. The Nebrasketballers had just came back from beating Okie St. in Sioux Falls a couple days earlier, and the players could have bolted out the back-door if they so chose after the hubbub of the event that Tuesday night. Glynn and Zay were especially kind and helpful. They signed the memorabilia and took pictures like 2 pros -- I have no doubt in my mind that thos

  15. It is easy to say family is important to us, until that belief is tested. As a fan base we have been tested...twice, and have failed both times. Family seems to be important to us only as a means to virtual signal. If FH is indeed our next coach then it will happen in due time. Whether it happens next week or the week after doesn't matter in the larger picture. Everybody needs to R.E.L.A.X

    Ah HHC... It seems like just yesterday we had our pitchforks and torches ready about the Bill Moos trip for his sons spring game at Cal. Not calling anyone out or stirring things up, it's just interesting to see how the interests of one's son are perceived, even thought the situations are both very similar and very different!

  18. Matt Abdelmassih being Fred’s first call seemed to be the only secret that was worst kept than Fred being the guy. Abdelmassih is one hell of a recruiter. Seems like he was bringing in quite a few transfers at ISU and at St John’s, looks like he’s got some JUCO ties as well which could help with convincing Jervay to stay (maybe). Interested as to who else might soon be N when it comes to assistants.

  20. Timing is huge, I think that is why we're waiting. It serves two purposes, one Hoiberg can enjoy a weekend with his family without being "New Nebraska HC", but also we get more bang for our buck with an announcement right before Final 4 festivities get kicked off. While Nate Oats to Bama will be second page news, Hoiberg to Nebraska would be one of the big storylines at the Final 4. But you're right in the sense that you don't want to wait until AFTER the final 4. I think Moos gets it right though, his timing has been thoughtful and well executed these last few weeks. He's had his

    Realistically, Michigan State's performance in the tournament should have no bearing to when a coaching announcement is made. Regardless, it would be a shame if Moos doesn't lock down a coach before the Final Four, because that would be a missed opportunity with all of those coaches networking events and meetups.

    I have no idea. Figured they were both West but it's probably also because I'm high as a kite (medically permissible, don't start calling the FBI).

    What is this about?

    This is what it is. Chubick used to post here way back in the day and up until the Aguek signing went sideways he regularly appeared on 93.7 so it's almost definitely about Aguek. The sad part about all of this is how unnecessary it was from either side because we always had scholarships.

  31. Edwards initiated the contact by kicking out. You do have to give the guy room to land, but if you watch again the defender did a nice job of situating his body on the fly by so Edwards would most certainly have been able to land. It should have been a no call at the very least and the only call that should be considered is an offensive foul for kicking the leg out in a neutral space. The defender is every bit as entitled to that space as Edwards is.

  32. I still have to pinch myself, thinking its not real, but I just can't see how it's not at this point. The rumors/stories from all over. And it's media, not John Doe on Twitter or Rivals.com. I think it's also telling that there really isn't any sort of rumors out there about other candidates. You have one Arkansas writer mentioning Anderson, some light twitter scuttlebutt about the Bradley guy and Sip's blurb on Lue. That's it. And Sip just a few days ago was basically saying that Hoiberg was a done deal too. If there was truly a search going on, you would be hearing rumor

  40. I have no issue with a foul called in that situation...it was said above to let the game play out in the last ten seconds...i disagree...if you think it is a foul, call it...regardless of time and score. To have a game decided because a ref decided to swallow his whistle is just as bad as a missed call in the last ten seconds.

    I find it a bit odd too. I love the fact Fred wants to follow his son's team, but it's not like Jack plays. He played the last 14 seconds last Saturday in a mop up role.

    Like it or hate it, that's his job. If he fires Miles and hasn't gauged anyones interest, then we're sitting here holding our pud. Everyone said if we can't upgrade with a proven winner then keep Tim, well how would Moos do that if he has no idea who would have interest in the open Nebraska job.
