  1. I will miss Sharp and Benning. I do think Sharp can pull off the solo show. I will miss Severe talking with Dirk about most anything, but that's about it. Not looking forward to him and Benning together--I feel like Mike'l often speaks on sports issues he doesn't know much about. Never a fan of Unsportsmanlike Conduct, unless Sip is on :)
  2. Doc himself said he is a good defensive coach and a mediocre offensive coach. Seems to me Hoiberg coaches offense, Sadler coaches D, and Gates and (especially) Abdelmassih focus on recruiting.
  3. The only one I wish we had was Thomas Allen, but he seemed gone mid-year on just judging from body language.
  4. I would love to be able to cheer for Roby as a Spur!
  5. I can't blame them ... our basketball tickets have been beyond reasonable for a long time. People talk about sellouts, etc. but that's partly why. Not saying we don't have great fans because we do, but it's a relative bargain for something to do in the winter for even the most casual fan.
  6. Up a total of $250 ... to a total of $2200 or so for 4 tickets plus parking. $400 in donations and $1800 or so for the tickets, fees and parking. If I'm not mistaken they are charging $20 for the season ticket card this year (and all other options as well) which is an additional expense compared to prior years. I think I calculated about $31/ticket/game including donations. Very reasonable imho.
  7. I think overall for our 4 tickets in upper rows of the 100 section it appears our price including donation is up about $250 total or so. (including parking)
  8. That's assuming Roby was really disappointed Miles was fired. Roby himself said today (yesterday?) that basically Hoiberg being hired made it more difficult for him to leave.
  9. They have not missed on many of their targets!
  10. Heard Amir and Karrington were asked to leave last weekend.
  11. After Heiman airballed that layup in the B1G Tourney it just felt like that was a pivotal moment. Obviously Miles lost all faith after that. Unfortunately scholarships are 1 year renewable agreements. They work both ways -- players can choose to leave as well without being asked. That being said, I am pro-athletes in that I feel like they need ongoing freedoms to leave and receive pay and/or stipend (a whole other issue). My guess is Washut dropped the info because he wasn't told not to, but was contacted shortly afterward and removed it. One would hope the staff would be talking with the kids before being a source to the media, but that's not always the reality. Hoiberg and crew value being able to shoot above all else ... Heiman, Amir and Thor all are not known as being able to shoot. Sadly, that was an ongoing problem for Miles's recruits. It's been a problem in the program for quite some time. I can't really remember that many players over the last 15 years who really worried another team with their shooting. Was Paul Velander in that 15 year time frame?
  12. From what I heard they were all asked to leave, rather than decided to leave.
  13. It's a good way to keep his options open. Honestly I think he's more likely to stay here with a new coach than if Miles had been retained, but that's just speculation on my part.
  14. What a fun game! These guys continue to amaze me with their ongoing effort. Great job by the crowd willing the team to stick in there when it was tough early. If you'd said Butler scored 76 before the game, I'd have a hard time believing we won. Scrappy effort and it was fun to see it get a bit chippy out there with the competitive juices flowing. What an interesting situation we have here ... never a dull moment!
