    Top Nebrasketball Dunks

    Thanks - that’s the one!

    Top Nebrasketball Dunks

    Ya it was a prettt big moment in the game. Conklin had a HUGE game out there in the NIT. I seem to remember Badgett having a pretty big dunk on a breakaway, and I feel like it was a big spot in a big game... but I was pretty young, so I’m not recalling any details.

    Top Nebrasketball Dunks

    So definitely not the greatest ever... but Conklin’s tip dunk in Hawaii was pretty cool at the time!

    Danny Nee's Old Hang-out (one of them, anyway)

    Read this this morning, tried it this afternoon. Two thumbs up!!! Just how hot is the Angry Cow?? The waitress talked me out of it... but I’m curious.

    Successful Season

    I can agree with this. Hopefully a fun year ahead!

    Successful Season

    Disagree. Copeland and Palmer will not likely make the NBA. I will obviously pull for them, but it’s unlikely they make the incremental improvements they would need to as year-5 seniors. It’s the most talent we’ve had in 20 years, and I’m hoping for big things! ...But it’s not near the most talent we’ve ever had.

    OT: Biographies

    I liked Larry Bird’s. I think it was called Drive.

    Collier, Sadler or Miles

    Fun exercise - thanks Mario.

    Collier, Sadler or Miles

    I was surprised to see people pick Miles to draw up a winning play. It seems like his game-ending plays are often isolations that end up with contested long shots (I certainly know this isn’t always the case). I always considered Collier an outstanding Xs and Os coach (his other deficiencies far too vast for this strength to mean much at NU). I agree with Norm’s answer, though I’d give Collier the slight nod for drawing up a play to get a good look.

    What to do with Miles contract?

    Ha! Could be! My dad started taking me to games in the early 90s - though I’d be lying if I said I remember too much of them. I definitely remember Nee’s final years and worked for Collier and Sadler while I attended the university. LOVED Sadler - that man was a class act. When I said “decades,” I was referring to mid-90s.

    What to do with Miles contract?

    Things I like about Miles: 1. He’s recruited a higher caliber athlete than we’ve had in decades 2. He’s taken us to a level previous coaches were unable to 3. Great/open personality and very likeable Things I’m not sure about: 1. Is the recruiting/success a result of him or facilities upgrades? I know recruiting is about relationships, but could other coaches recruit here just as well with the facilities? 2. The attrition - while arguably natural - seems unhealthy. When TP left, we said it was because he was 24 and his stock. When WP left, it was because he was a head case. When AWIII left, it was his dad and unreasonable expectations. Last years losses weren’t that big of deal... and we arguable ended up better for it. If Palmer or Copeland leaves, I think I’ll be a little more leery and tired of the excuses. All previous instances can be explained individually, but the trend is concerning (some will say this is happening throughout college basketball... but I don’t hear of a lot of quality players leaving early to go to the D-league). Things don’t like: 1. The lack of offensive sets to get us goood looks when we’re struggling. 2. Non-existent in-bounds plays. 3. Looks we end up getting at the end of games when we NEED a bucket. 4. Player development. GW (arguably his best recruit) has arguably gotten worse over the last 1.5 years. In all, I like Miles and it would be foolish to fire him, but my gut tells me he is not the coach to get us to the NEXT level (consistently in the top half of the B1G). If he’s going to be, I think he needs better coaches on his bench (offensive mind and player development).

    Big Ten Tournament

    I’d take Michigan in 2OT

    Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    Do you feel another win versus Michigan does the trick?

    No Sit Sunday x Duce

    Man if that happens... I don’t know where we’re at in the recruiting cycle, but I’d be bringing everyone in I could (basketball, football, whatever). That’s an atmosphere they won’t see many other places.
