    Jordy Gone

    I am thinking Jordy is as delusional as Ed was about being a wing if he is leaving because he feels he should be a starter. He should know he is still raw as heck on the offensive side unless his “advisors” are filling his head with other ideas.

    2019 PG Shareef Mitchell

    Sorry.... no link. He is no longer on the 2018 list. He didn’t have any high major offers, which is interesting for a kid on the list. Just the mid major offers we all knew about. edit: in the link you provided, if you look below it actually still shows him ranked 141 nationally even though it says “NA” in the top section.

    I think he was rated that high in the 2018 rankings. I would guess since he reclassified to 2019 he isn’t rated yet.

    2018 SG Karrington Davis - LOI

    He’s definitely worth a roll of the dice from a skill set perspective. Sometimes I wonder if a kid like him would have benefited from playing serious minutes at a small school. Similar to how you occasionally see mid major kids blossom into stars. It’s hard to hone your craft when you don’t get minutes.

    Sometimes I wonder if Miles has a learned taste aversion to recruiting the metro after Biggs and Arop. Brady is from Springfield iirc so that is a little different even though he AAU’d in Omaha. Hopefully we can string together some good seasons to build our brand in Omaha and get some of the local kids that are high major caliber (assuming mutual interest, of course)

    Successful Season

    Copeland and Roby have the most diverse skill set of 2 front court players 6’8” and above I have watched playing at Nebraska. Roby’s Ceiling is just ridiculous. I want to see them take the next step and turn it into consistent production. If I had to pick two players 6’8” and above to build a team around I would pick Mikki Moore and Venson Hamilton, though. You would lose perimeter scoring but having the top 2 shot blockers in school history protecting the rim is a beautiful thing (not to mention the best rebounder in school history).

    Successful Season

    On the topic of the thread, I went with making the tourney. For our program to get selected means we had a successful regular season. Don’t get me wrong....I am DIEING (is that even spelled right?) to see us get that freaking win in the NCAA tourney. It would be a dream season for me to see us get that elusive win. Seeing Northwestern beat us to it was a dagger in my heart.

    Farmer was actually a transfer from San Jose State IIRC. Was an absolute beast, though.

    Let me get this straight...

    I actually totally agree. I am a basketball junkie but in this state I think we play second fiddle to the fans that are primarily focused on football. Our numbers are growing (just look at our attendance) but NU will always be a football school first for the majority of fans. It does seem like Moos kind of screwed with the hoops program, intentionally or not. I am not sure what to make of the whole deal. Miles has this program in a much better place than what he walked into; hopefully this doesn’t set us back too bad.

    Let me get this straight...

    I totally agree. I would have done option 1 the day the season ended and been done with it. Moos obviously is looking for an upgrade and it wasn’t getting done this offseason. Should have immediately put it to bed. I am hoping the uncertainty doesn’t screw up next season. I hope Moos turns his full attention to hoops next winter and makes a firm decision on way or the other.

    Let me get this straight...

    I have no problem with Moos putting all of his attention on football initially. We are Nebraska. We have been lost in the wilderness for about twenty years....he had to get it nailed down. Moving in to basketball, I don’t know how you fire a guy who just finished fourth in the B1G. Period. End of discussion. We are historically a bottom feeder in men’s hoops so this was a damn good season. Just ended poorly. I totally understand wanting to do better; I feel like we can do better but Miles may be at his ceiling. I guess I would put it this way.....you don’t fire Solich after 9 wins. It has a really bad look. You fire him after 7-7. I would have given Miles a 2 year extension and moved on. Why? Have you looked at the baseball mess? I don’t think Moos wants to replace the men’s head coaches of all 3 major programs while he is still figuring out where to pick up his mail. Miles did more with less this year. Erstad is doing less with more. He has all the advantage over our conference breatheran. He has had plenty of time. His assistants are bad and he won’t replace them. But he is a seriously famous alum..... I would not want to deal with that one. bottom line is Moos had a lot on his plate walking in the door. Kind of left basketball dangling but if he gets football right he will have latitude in the other sports.
  12. Crap. I know recruits shouldn’t dictate whether you keep coaches or not, but he was a big part of me being hopeful for Miles’ future success.
  13. I just love to beat Iowa in anything. Period.

    Very cool! It is stuff like that which is why I enjoy college athletics much more than pro sports.

    Pre-Annual Cupcake Loss Check-In

    I don’t get too hung up on the wins and losses as far as my expectations of the team. I gauge more by how we play, which generally leads to good (or bad) win totals. To my eyes, early on we were much worse than I expected. The last 5 games have changed my perception quite a bit. We look like we have turned a corner. We are much, much better than in November. Based on that I picked exceeded. Hopefully I feel the same at season’s end!
