  1. Personally, I thought his end of game management was lacking but all in all a good coach of the fundamentals, X's & O's, and inspiring (threatening at times?) athletes to play with great effort. In today's game though recruiting is an indispensable skill needed to be a head coach at a high level. His inability to bring in players that were equal in ability to most conference opponents was his downfall. You can excel in one part of your job but still have weaknesses in other areas. Hoiberg got fired from his last coaching job. There will be a honeymoon but if he isn't successful here with the resources given, he will be fired again. When your job is on the line, you don't bring in incompetent people because they are your friends. Our current head coach has acknowledged that defense is not a particular strength. Doc is here to teach defense. No matter what other weaknesses he had as a head coach, Hoiberg hired him because he thought Doc excels at that aspect of coaching. Liking your co-workers is a is definitely a benefit, but you don't stay a D-1 head coach if you base your hires off of people you already know and like.
  2. Kavas and Cheatham, besides the skill sets they bring, are the two grad transfers. Grad transfers don't come to schools they think there is any possibility they sit the bench. So you are only going to bring in people you know will play for you and if it's close you give them the start. If that doesn't happen then you are going to have a more difficult time bringing in any more grad transfers in the future.
  3. Part of that had to do with he played the garbage minutes with the walk ons at the end of the game.
  4. The thing that jumped out to me the most is, even though I'm thrilled that Doc is back in town, he should never again wear an untucked white polo with shorts out in public. At this point in his life and for many of the rest of us, that is not a look he can pull off any more.

  6. I've seen the Thunderbirds live. They put on a good show. Jimmie Lee wasn't as good as Stevie but he was pretty good.
  7. My college coach measured us in our bare feet. That never made sense to me since I've never played a game of basketball in just my socks.
  8. He won't play but I believe he is planning on meeting the team in Italy.
  9. Sorry, I called dibs on this one further up in the thread.
  10. I understand what you're saying now or at least what you’re implying. Some people want to win your contest so bad they are willing to Google to get it.
  11. I don't know who your source for the list was, but the beauty of music is the subjectivity leading to such a great variety. I stick by my John Lee Hooker but if you want to go with a more popular/mainstream choice then I would go with Little Help from My Friends originally the Beatles and covered by Joe Cocker.
  12. "One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer" Original: Amos Milburn Much better remake: John Lee Hooker
  13. I know you were going for humor but I actually like this mash up with Pony
  14. So I’m old and confused. My point is still the Adidas brother’s never went to school here so profit and loss play a much bigger part in the companies decisions when it come to Nebraska then it does with Nike and Oregon.
