  1. Heather DinichESPN Senior Writer Oklahoma and Texas have formally notified the SEC they are seeking "an invitation for membership" beginning July 1, 2025, according to a joint statement from the flagship programs of the Big 12.
  2. Its has been reported that the exit fees that Oklahoma and Texas would pay to leave the Big 12 before the GOR runs out is capped at $70M per team. There has been precident set (Maryland and Rugters among others) where the exiting school pays 40-60% of that amount (~$35M each for a total of ~$70M, to be shared by the 8 remaining schools). This occurs only if there is a viable Big 12 in place, which requires a minimum of 10 schools. So in order for Texas and Oklahoma to have to pay their likely ~$35M, the remaining 8 schools need to decide to stick it out in the Big 12 AND find at

  6. You have to consider the optics on display for AD candidates. Hard to prove he was in short timer mode, and Moos had more successes than struggles here.

  10. You need to have good coaching staffs to be a successful program, and I think Nebraska has that in Volleyball, Softball, Baseball, both Basketball and (yes) Football teams. I also think that having talented players is even more important. I subscribe to the Jimmies & Joes beats Xs & Os school, say 70/30 in favor of player talent. If anything was going to give pretty much ALL sports at Nebraska a big boost in the eyes of recruiting, this will do it. Husker Nation may be the most active fan base out there. Still have fond memories of the ESPN fan-voted "best te
  11. I agree with your 4 main issues, placing Rebounding and 3-Pt accuracy as the #1A and #1B, with FT shooting #2 and Bryce being everything advertised as #3. I would also add 4. Reduce the number of fouls, especially the fouls at crucial points in the game. I don't know if these are "frustration" fouls, or "making up for lesser effort" fouls, but there appeared to me to be too many of this sort of foul. Maybe they should be called "discipline" fouls. We were a better team in terms of foul per minute in 2019 (actually very good overall with 1 foul per 13.4 minutes).
  12. It's unfortunate that we don't have the same sort of data for the Danny Nee years. I wonder how many of these would be on the list if we went back to 1986? Half? I think all of these guys could have made the list... Tyron Lue, Mikki Moore, Eric Piatkowski, Beau Ried, Rich King, Verson Hamilton, Tony Farmer, Eric Strickland, Kinani Ffriend, Terrence Badgett, Carl Hayes, Clifford Scales, Bernard Day. All of these players were fairly tauted recruits.
  13. I attended my share of Sadler practices and clinics, and a couple of Miles clinics. I've also watched some Hoiberg clinic stuff on youtube. There was a marked difference between Sadler's approach and Miles' approach at the clinics. I think Collier and Sadler's forte was X's and O's. Miles' forte was recruiting. Hoiberg is good at both. IIRC, Nee was a heck of a recruiter that let his assistants coach.
  14. Someone needs to lead the expedition to the Lonely Mountain.
  15. It was a James Coburn quote from a great movie... Payback. Great "mobster out for payback" movie, lots of quotable lines! I just now realized that there is a politician from Virginia named Justin Fairfax. Apologies if the name caused any confusion.
