Which would be more of the same. Nobody unproven is going to come into Nebraska and convince great high school players to do what very few great high school players have done before, and play for the Cornhuskers. It will take a very good coach, maybe even a great coach, to break through decades of mediocrity. So how is Nebraska going to convince a great coach to do what very few (if any) great coaches have done before, and coach the Cornhuskers?
By throwing money at him.
Money-whip somebody until he says yes. Somebody like Shaka Smart or Brad Stevens, assuming they would say yes (or even listen). Somebody like Scott Drew, assuming the same. But it has to be somebody with a big name, somebody recruits want to play for -- and whoever he is, that guy will be expensive.
Good thing Nebraska can afford it.
The Huskers are getting richer in the Big Ten, and the football program is printing money already. It turned a $30 million profit in 2010, and now's the time for Osborne to throw some of those millions at a big basketball name. See which one catches it.
