    Rock Bottom!?

    This is the exact reason I hate the current system (albeit while happily taking it over the RPI). I know it might take a little more work, but I think the win/loss quad should be locked in at the time you play the game, not at the end of the season, as though the outcome of the game doesn't play a factor in determining the final ranking at the end of the year or that the team you beat or lost to early on (or your own team) is the same at the end of the season as they were at the beginning. So for us, Clemson and Indiana would clearly remain Quad 1. But any noise Seton Hall or whoever else makes after we played them winds up being kind of immaterial. Rutgers stays Quad 3. Maybe I'm looking too narrowly, but that seems a lot more fair and accurate to me than to wait until the end of the season (which might include sickness, injury, suspensions, etc) to determine how good the win or loss you had two months ago was.

    Scouting Mich St

    Lord have mercy, but no. I was in Sioux Falls. Our fans were SLOPPY. I am far, far from a teetotaler, but that experience alone made me change my stance on having beer at the arena. Cheer loud, have fun, but please don't yell during our own free throws and try to take photos with the players during the game (and steal their stuff from the bench).

    Points still count from inside the arc, right? I worry our team is unaware. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    If Miles is Fired This Year

    Head coaches, yes. Assistant coaches, sometimes. (At Nebraska they're paid pretty well, but at other schools that isn't always the case.) Operations staff, not so much...but when the HC goes, generally so does the entire staff. It's part of the game, to be sure, and that's a known risk, but those guys aren't paid any differently than most everyday folks and get the boot too. Just...food for thought. I've known a few of them over the years, and that can be kind of a rough deal. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  5. Just for the sake of accuracy, wasn't Michigan a Tier 1 win last year? Still agree that we have a decent shot of winning a good deal more than 1 more rhis year though. And Clemson is still solidly Tier 1, right? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    A sobering stat

    I actually think that's a pretty encouraging stat -- in order for both teams to be ranked, that means Nebraska has to be ranked. We've played a hell of a lot of ranked opponents, but it seems we aren't ranked ourselves all that often. For better or for worse yesterday, I actually see that as a sign of things looking up that, in a CONFERENCE game -- meaning not a fluke early-season ranking -- we were both ranked. We may have crapped ourselves in it, but was anyone's preseason expectation to actually be in the national Top 25 rankings come January?

    Oh God it's all clear. I missed earlier that Larry Scirotto and his Little Man Syndrome was reffing this one. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    How was it that official's call AND NOT THE OFFICIAL LOOKING DIRECTLY AT IT? Ugh. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Third away game I've watched from my couch...Tech, Minnesota, and this one. Considering going to a bar for the last stretch here... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  11. I don't think it's KenPom so much as the NET formula...you get a better score if you win by more than 10. Maybe trying to get a little more insurance to make sure the final doesn't wind up less than that? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    OT: Places to eat in that Berg to the Northeast

    Le Bouillon in the Old Market -- little different (it's French) but super good. Little bit on the pretentious side and you cannot eat cheap there but is it ever tasty. My parents live up there and go to Spezia every so often, but more when it's warmer out and they can sit in the courtyard. If you don't mind the neighborhood, Johnny's Steakhouse (NOT the Italian one in Village Point, but the old one off of Highway 75) is still pretty outstanding for a steak or chicken. Dad swears by The Drover, too. Beacon Hills over by Aksarben is pretty nice too -- more casual, less fine dining, but definitely a good bit fancier than it was when it was down here on 27th street. Similar menu still, but the atmosphere is a lot more upscale.

  15. Oh, and one other thing -- when I say this was mismanaged, I don't just mean the lack of real extension, I mean the PR that goes with it. It's true that giving 2-3 more years with the comments Moos made would still give a hot-seat perception. But giving 2-3 more years while expressing support, not another "prove it again" statement (after another extended silence), removes the speculation. If money was really the big concern, he could have coupled a one-year extension with some great language expressing optimism and support, in a timely manner (as though he had several weeks between the end of football season and the end of basketball season to evaluate and come up with his options, rather than being reactive to what an arbitrary committee decides mere days before you know this question is going to arise publicly) and it may not have been quite as bad, although I still think would be lacking. In that regard, not crafting a positive message right away is just as big a mistake. At the end of the day, though, I think they go hand-in-hand, and personally I think he failed miserably at both.
