  1. That's one interpretation. Another is that Hunter thought coaching for Danny Hurley at UConn had more upside than NU. Plus, he was an East Coast guy before he came here so he's heading back to where he's comfortable recruiting. So the issue of job security might have mattered, but more in the fact that the UConn job was better long term, regardless of an extension for Miles.
  2. According to this, Miles' recruiting classes were ranked: 72 in 2012 56 in 2013 95 in 2014 27 in 2015 55 in 2016 75 in 2017 83 in 2018 66 in 2019 Consistently mediocre, the one outlier was 2015, when TM could sell the success of 2014. The program's lack of success was a bigger recruiting factor than a contract extension imo. Doesn't take into account how the recruits panned out, of course. Either way, transfers made his program, not his recruiting of HS players. https://www.cornnation.com/2019/3/29/18260493/nebrasketball-a-history-of-tim-miles-recruiting-classes
  3. The pool is much, much deeper now, imo. The 1990 all-state team had Strickland, Badgett and Woolridge, plus Curtis Marshall, who went to NC State. But the rest of those teams in that era were mostly a bunch of D-2 kids. So maybe no class of the 1990 level today, but a lot more D-1 players. Differences today: (1) More exposure from AAU, as opposed to one state traveling team picked via geographical political correctness (2) more opportunities in the region, with UNO and Dakotas now D-1 (3) the Sudanese kids (4) the decline of football locally (due to NU's woes and reports of injuries), leading more kids to choose other sports.
  4. Ooops! Just went looking for an update and didn't notice the date.
  5. To Cleveland State. https://www.cowboysrideforfree.com/2019/1/21/18191915/oklahoma-state-men-basketball-roster-maurice-calloo-transfer-cleveland-state-roster-2019
  6. Kenya Hunter mentioned, though not in an alarming way. Hadn't seen it posted elsewhere. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/26612504/paying-coaches-was-scam-not-bribes
  7. Maybe he's referring to the discussion of whether he's going to class?
  8. Also had offers from Boston U. and Fairfield. He should still count as a D-1 recruit out of Nebraska in the argument that there's instate talent. ?
  9. I apologize if this was posted elsewhere: http://www.startribune.com/the-long-drive-ex-nebraska-coach-tim-miles-on-getting-fired-and-what-comes-next/508388732/
  10. I went to look up Lithonia, thinking it was somewhere near Estonia. OK, now I get it.
  11. I heard just the opposite about Thurman from somebody who knows his family, that he had the grades, test scores, etc. Not so with some of the other Central players, however, several had to go the JC route. Hollins had some personal issues too, but man he was good.
  12. I believe the injury factor only applies if the player returns. So the committee will excuse Duke's losses while Zion was out. But I don't think we get "bonus points" because we'd be better with Cope.
  13. Jeez, I first read that and thought Ernie Kent was tweeting about the job! @!*)$*#$)*! OK, now I get it.
  14. And yet we're still favored by 1.5. Time for a run!
