  1. I was stunned when I first saw this reported, but then read a couple of articles/columns that went deeper. Given the cess pool that college basketball recruiting has become and the transfer portal creating the need to manage rosters on a 24/7/365 basis with no guarantees, it starts to make more sense. I hate it because I think the game needs more people like John Beilein, not fewer: CBS Sports: https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/why-john-beilein-leaving-michigan-and-jumping-to-the-cavaliers-makes-a-lot-more-sense-than-you-think/ SI: https://www.si.com/college-basketball/2019/05/13/michigan-john-beilein-cavs-nba-ncaa
  2. Goodness - that is a serious roster makeover!
  3. The more I think about it, the more I start to consider actually attending the tournament. Anyone else thinking about it?
  4. A little internet research may or may not confirm your opinion...or maybe they were just rumors around town...can't remember any more.
  5. Yep. Gives Coach Hoiberg more flexibility to bring in guys he wants and who want to be here with him.
  6. Not surprising and as much as I think it's a mistake, I wish him luck.
  7. Living a few miles away, I can say it is no longer underwater but there will be a lot of clean up to do!
  8. Can't say I ever played against a Husker, but I do have the honor (as I'm sure many others do as well) of being dunked on by future Husker Bruce Chubick in a sub-district game back in 1988. Yeah, he went for 38 that night with 7 3-pointers.
  9. Decided I would join the party! Now, if someone could tell me how I can add a signature, I would be quite grateful!
  10. Just had to chime in - the excitement and enthusiasm I have for this hire is truly off the charts! I cannot wait to see where Coach Hoiberg takes this program and while I've seen a lot of criticism of Bill Moos, he has done exactly what he needed to do. I could not be happier that he was the guy in charge.
  11. It's a long story but they caught 1 of them - he's now residing in Lincoln for the next 35 years (he had been in and out of prison several times in the past). We don't know who the 2nd one was but think they were brothers. No way to know for sure.
  12. I wouldn't know where to begin to do that @cipsucks but I do appreciate the sentiment. If one of the mods wants to move it (so I don't screw up this thread), that would be more than fine. Otherwise, I just wanted to share the story - if anyone can appreciate the good/bad analogy, it's those on this board.
  13. 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 Miles. He was phenomenal that night, telling stories and genuinely having fun. At the end of the night, I had a chance to ask him about his version of the motion offense. 15 minutes later, he had diagrammed multiple options for me on the table using empty beer bottles. It was fantastic and something I will never forget as long as I live. It turns out though, that 15 minutes was something I couldn't really afford to give. Returning home that night and pulling into my garage, I was approached on either side by 2 men pointing guns at me. Without going into a lot of detail, they forced themselves into my apartment and ransacked the place while I lay face down on the floor. Like I said, the best night ever talking ball with Coach Miles turned into the worst night of my life, wondering if I was going to be shot in the back of the head. I wanted to share that story because it is an incredible memory, both good and bad. Thank you Coach, for all you have done for Nebraska basketball and for providing fans like me more access to the program than I ever dreamed possible. While it didn't work out in Lincoln, I look forward to cheering for you at your next stop.
  14. Congratulations - well played this year! As for me, I will commence updating my signature for my Top 5 finish
