    New assistant - Armon Gates

    I think it needed a new thread honestly. Plus it's the off season. Plus it's good news.

    New assistant - Armon Gates

    I am pleased by this hire
  3. My shower thought was what would Collier and Sadler have done in their prime (or when NE hired them) if they had taken over Nebrasketball when Miles did; new arena, practice facility, support of private jet, B1G, etc. 1) If given identical teams and a week to prepare which coach would you pick to win a game. 2) If there is 20 seconds left in a game given an identical situation down by 1 with the ball which coach is most likely to draw up a winning play? 3) All other things being equal which coach is most likely to get a commitment from and in home visit. 4) Scouting a high school tournament game which coach is most likely to find the diamond in the rough? 5) Given a player with potential which coach is most likely to fully develop it? 6) Going to a coaching convention needing to hire an assistant, which coach comes away with the best coach?

    Collier, Sadler or Miles

    I thought about that but thought it was too specific; and like you said Miles would be dead last.

    Let me get this straight...

    Bo proved you can't live on the "us against the world" mentality very long. Recruiting has been hurt and the momentum of the program feels stalled. Even if we have an okay year next year what about after that.

    One could, either way, my excitement for the program isn't high. But admittedly it is higher than it was 1 year ago.

    Knowing this program not well

    I will be less likely to go to no name State next year knowing that Moos doesn't believe in Miles or seem to care about basketball. So yeah this could have an effect on attendance. I can't believe how unexcited I am for next year. Feels like just another year of Nebrasketball heartache.
  9. Yeah my implication was that maybe there is something on the inside going on. But from the outside it looks like incompetence.
  10. Exactly, I didn't think that Moos would take the third option. From the outside it doesn't look good.
  11. I thought the choices were either: fire Miles or extend him right away to stabilize the program for the next year. I had no idea there was a third option: hem and haw and let the program blow in the wind. It has been hard not to feel like the fans care more than the administration the last 2 decades.
  12. When we ask this question about Wisconsin everyone always points out they have more home grown talent and are closer to talent rich areas. But the state of Kansas regularly has 2 or 3 programs each the sweet 16. You could maybe argue that Kansas is a Blueblood fo it is easier to recruit but Kansas st and Wichita State are not. So if Kansas schools can be a mainstay in the tournament why can't Nebraska?

    Next Assistant Coach

    Hiring someone with a job is a much better strategy.

    Release the recruit or the head coach?
  15. Watching Duke beat Syracuse has me thinking that if even Duke resorts to 1 and dones that it should be allowed to pay players a signing bonus. Nebrasketball (and Creighton) have good facilities and great fan support. We should be allowed to translate that support into better players; especially since all the Bluebloods do it through agents right now.
  16. I remembered reading last year that a really high percentage of people college age had some college and that for the first time ever half were expected to graduate.
  17. What is the percentage of people 23 to 26? I read a study that said a college degree today has the same earning potential as a high school diploma did in 1950.
  18. The majority of people have degrees now. When everyone has something its value is relatively reduced.
  19. I mean Nebraska has good fan support and I am tired of that not translating to talent and success.
  20. Personal satisfaction and value in the market place are different things. But when 30k dead end office jobs want you to have a degree now.
  21. I do to, but schools have shown time and again they will cheat so there schools that are punished are those that don't "cheat."
  22. But the member schools don't want to be policed better. When people get mad at the NCAA they should really get mad at the member schools and conferences.
  23. True, but it might be time to go back to the supreme Court
  24. The NCAA passes the basketball money back to the members schools.

    Miles extension poll

    Give Miles 2 this year just so we can stop talking about it.
