  1. I totally agree...For some reason, regular season accomplishments aren't as lauded as post season accomplishments. I do think regular season championships in every sport should be deemed more important. I am a Milwaukee Brewers fan and winning the NL Central last year was awesome and I consider a huge accomplisment...Yes, I want a NLCS title and and World Series title, but playoffs, there are elements of randomness that can affect who wins any individual game or series.
  2. My guess is somebody is turning Pro...If Roby were to come back, I would not be surprised to see Thor take his talents to Icelandia.
  3. If Fred is letting guys know that they aren't in his plans...much better to do it now than have them figure it our next year without much chance to play.
  4. That would be interesting to see. I feel people root for Laundry...so I think it would affect it some, might not be as much as we expect. If quality of play was the primary reason people watched, I think you would see people leaving the NCAA game for the G-League or oveseas premier leagues....but they don't.
  5. Sadly, I doubt anything much comes from this...unless the NCAA completely changes how they investigate and penalize.
  6. I have always viewed the teams that win the NIT as equivalent to a sweet 16 team... Most call them 69th place team, but to go on a run against teams that are often as good or better than most teams (higher seeded teams) First round match up in the NCAA...is pretty significant.
  7. That NIT run was so unexpected, it probably was one of the most fun runs Nebraska had during the Nee era. Nee had better teams, but that NIT run was a blast.
  8. Roby becomes a year older if he stays...the NBA loves youth, although I think they should really start looking at letting the colleges develop guys for 4 years instead of a guy riding the bench for three years and then once he finally is ready to play, his rookie contract is over and you either overpay him or lose him.
  9. Sometimes a complete tear down is easier than a tweak.
  10. It would be interesting had Miles been at Nebraska during Doc's timeline and Doc during Mile's timeline. I do believe you would be saying that Doc could recruit circles around Tim.....I think we are underestimating the challenges that Doc was facing in terms of facilities and the transitioning to the big ten. I think Doc was devastated when he was let go, because he saw the opportunity with his coaching ability to be able to start attracting better talent.
  11. While that is true on paper...i would also not be surprised if Doc's best team beat Miles's best team..... Doc's team were often competitive with teams that that nobody expected.
  12. I actually think Doc is a good recruiter and has that reputation...his time at nebraska, he was saddled with some of the worst facilities and just has we were getting the new bells and whistles, he was let go. It is tough to compare Doc with Miles, because they were recruiting to totally different programs.
  13. I saw a mock draft Yesterday that had Roby going 51st.
  14. I think that was a common belief... After Hoiberg left Iowa State...I felt that there were only two jobs in college that he would come back to college....Iowa St and Nebraska... I have a lot of Iowa state friends and they all thought I was crazy...but it just seemed like a perfect fit for his family and his midwest roots.
  15. I had a conversation with a basketball coach and before the tournament, he asked me what teams I liked (style of play) that over achieved based on the recruits that they have attracted. I gave him Texas Tech and Virginia....but of course, when I filled out the brackets, I didn't have either past the sweet 16.
