  1. Oooof That's gonna be a tough walk back. And who walks it back? For the forum it came out on my thinking is this - If you are associated with the team then you DEFINITELY don't want this to come out at all. Regardless the forum. My other thought is how athletes receive training on how to deal with the media. And Kobe's been at this a while. A super senior. I question if he was nudged into this. It will definitely be interesting to see what happens
  2. The only one this should be a bad look for is the coaching staff. If there is ever fallout from telling the truth its not the parties involved of telling the truth thats the problem.
  3. And because its him saying these things it makes me believe there is a close to zero % chance Hoiberg is the Coach to turn this thing around. To be fair the % wasn't much higher before he said it
  4. This is where I'm at as well. Except it doesn't make me happy just less sad.
  5. This isn't to single you out because I agree he is most likely retained. This is more why I don't agree with it. I understand the financial restraints in everyone arguments on retaining Hoiberg. It seems to me though if you retain Hoiberg the end game is still crap. Unless, of course, you believe he's still the guy to get it done. I may not have this right at all but I understand it that Hoiberg is due 18.5 million if he is let go this year and 3.5 million less each season thereafter. To your point about Trev continuing to give Hoiberg every resource he needs to succeed if he is retained I agree. But I will also point out Hoiberg has had the most resources of any Nebraska basketball coach ever. Its a big leap for me to think thats the issue. Which brings me to my view. What is a season worth? Whats 2 seasons worth? Again, if you think he's the guy I get it. Disregard what I'm saying. But if you don't I can't understand the justification that a 15mil buyout vs a 18.5mil is worth an entire basketball season. Or a 11.5mil buyout is worth 2 seasons. I just can't believe that the 3.5mil or 7mil Nebraska saves for 1 or 2 years makes up for the losses in revenue other places. I hope to win the lotto and I hope Hoiberg restructures his contract if he's retained but I give both close to the same odds.
  6. I think a team of 4 Derrick Walkers and any other player from the current team beat any combination of our current team 9 out of 10. With the one loss coming when the other Derrick Walker had a monster game.
  7. People seem to be discounting this idea because of the specific numbers attached to it. What I say to that is forget the numbers. Think more low end of guaranteed money but still competitive then incentives. And thats where I think this works.
  8. Not Norm but no. If he's interested see what he wants. We haven't tried the "Power 5 Coach that needs a soft landing" approach yet. Just don't back up the Brinks truck.
  9. I like this idea and I think it may be the only realistic option. I've jumped ship on Hoiberg. I don't think he gets it done. I also think he's here 1-2 more years because of his contract. I also believe there is absolutely zero chance he renegotiates his contract. Why would he? He holds all the cards. So even in 2 years it would be a significant financial hit. This is the least enjoyable three years of Nebraska basketball in my life. I was firmly in the camp it was a "not spending more money for coaches" thing before this hire. Nope. I'll take the cheap hungry up and comer from here on out.
  10. Just reading this...only confirms what my heart already knew
  11. I feel we at at the level of bottom that is like getting kicked in the groin three times vs. four times. Sure getting kicked in the groin four times is worse. How much worse though?
  12. Sadly we don't have anything else to discuss right now because as you stated...
  13. I guess I'm confused. They way I 1st read your post was that you argued the expectations here may be too high. Which could scare off future potential coaches. But this post makes me think you are arguing the opposite. Or possibly the expectations are high because the pay for the head coach supports higher expectations. Anyhoo, that we are having these discussions at this juncture of Hoibergs tenure absolutely blows.
  14. In what world is the expectation here to make the post season every year. What coach believes that is the expectation here. Seems like a strawman argument based on statements from message boards.
  15. If having the WORST 3 year stretch in program history is overrated expectations then we should all just pack it up.
  16. Time to part ways. I my view there is nothing you can state to support bringing him back except a large buyout.
  17. Good comparison. Both are soft. But in vastly different ways.
  18. When the announcers are musing how a team stays focused knowing the dumpster fire that is Nebraska Basketball is coming up on thier schedule it has to be the bottom right?!?
  19. This is just silly logic. You could put any role player from any other team on this one and we would still be a bad team. And it has nothing to do with the role player.
