    Jordy Gone

    To bad he is not 2-3 inches taller, stretch 4 is the perfect position for him IMO. I have no problem playing one big, 3 decent sized wing and a PG. Would be a lot of fun if we can board. Not a lot of teams have 1 let alone 2 guys who are good at posting up so Def is not a big concern to me.

    Morrow leaving

    I think he was gone when we continued to start Jordy after Ed came back from injury. At that time everyone loved Jordy’s upside at the 5.

    2018-19 Husker opponents

    That is where I was completely wrong and Actuary was right but what I think needs to change. They place so much importance on analytics and do not use the eye test enough (not just this year with NU either). Maybe get some basketball folks instead of school ADs to be on the committee but not sure how that would work either. I know Rasmussen watches a lot of hoops but wonder how much others do and if not do they just rely on analytics. Picking that many teams from that many choices is going to be a flawed process no matter what I guess.

    Costello Redshirt

    I agree with this. I do think I like his upside a little more than Trueblood. Johnny seemed to be better attacking the rim but not sure if he will ever be able to do that at this level without having a knock down jumper like Costello.

    18-19 depth

    I think Allen will step into the 2 spot if he can hold up defensively. I would bet he does a lot better off the ball and focusing on knocking down shots like AG did for us last year.

    Morrow leaving

    He has something when he is healthy that they just do not have and that is strength / toughness. I bet he finds minutes and if he adds that they should be a pretty good squad.

    Amir Harris is N

    I think I saw some stats for one of his AAU teams when I was digging. It might have been a small sample size but he did not shoot very many threes at all and of those he attempted only made a low percentage. When I get time I will see if I can find it again but was thinking it was only like 2 for 13 or something like that. Thrilled to have him though.

    Contract Extensions

    I would have guessed you would think this way Petaluma. Why we are making things harder on ourselves for no good reason is baffling. Even if it makes things only slightly harder (I believe it is more than that) it seems stupid. It hurts the program as much or more than Miles.

    Contract Extensions

    It is a no confidence flag from the AD and of course it hurts a lot. Coaches are smart and will constantly be in a recruits ear about it and that plants a lot of doubt in kids/parents mind. What is so frustrating is if it is just about the money just reduce his buyout and extend the years, that happens a lot. So if you do end up having to fire him you are not out a lot more money. it was pretty simple and I am surprise by what Moos did. Hurts the program with or without Miles but doing it this way.

    Hank Bounds interview

    I would bet the indecisiveness on Miles led KH to at least put some feelers out to see what options he had. Then UCONN makes an offer and it is a no brainer for him and I do not blame him. If Moos came out right away and extended Miles and showed some confidence maybe he does not even put out feelers.

    Let me get this straight...

    There is simply no chance this does not hurt recruiting a lot. Every coach we go up against will be using it without a doubt. This will also impact the type of assistant coach we can get. This is a very loud and clear no confidence vote by the AD, no other way to look at it. It sucks because it does kill momentum and is needless. give him 3 years, lower the buyout, and praise him to everyone for a great job last year. It should not have been that hard unless Miles took a hard stance in negotiations which I doubt since he does not have a lot of juice.

    What to do with Miles contract?

    There seems to be a regent floating the rumor about Altman at 8 years / 30mil, so who knows who old Herman talks to.

    Name that Coach

    I was not that upset at 2015 either. Having 3 freshman, even good freshman, playing that big of a role is going to be hard to compete in normal big 10 years. Outside of top 25-50 guys, most will really struggle at times as freshman. 2014 and 2016 I agree were issues for me. I really believe if we fired Miles this year we will really be setting this program back big time. I do have faith in Moos to do the right thing though. I will have serious concerns if big contributors leave for shaky reasons again.

    Name that Coach

    I will disagree, think his first season was one of his best coaching jobs. We did not have much at all to work with. I have really only thought we really under performed in 2014 and 2016.
