    Nebraska MBB losing players fast

    Apparently, a great many players on the team are not particularly impressed by
    tom Osborn's hire. He was a good football coach, but he doesn't know diddly squat about basketball.

    Husker men down to 11 scholarship players - Omaha.com

    They have also lost a JuCo recruit:

    Husker hoops recruit is heading elsewhere - Omaha.com

    UNL is spending tons of money on basketball facilities, and they are going to need a return eventually. I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon. Miles is a good coach, but he is in over his head, like McD was at ISU.

    When Miles came out and said in the presser that he would not be recruiting JuCo players, probably safe to say that they will not be arriving in Lincoln.

    Nebraska is never going to be good in basketball. If some kid wants to play basketball in Nebraska he will go to Creighton. Omaha is a nice city with plenty of stuff to do. McDermott also seems to be building something nice there.

    He's standing on the shoulders of those that came before him. He inherited a healthy program.

    Plus, don't underestimate his ability to eff it all up.

    Miles first year at CSU, he had 2 returning guys...I don't think this will phase him. He hasn't lost anyone of value yet.

    Re: Nebraska MBB losing players fast

    I don't know...I think that he's just a Valley coach and not a BCS coach. He'll have a really good team next year and then it all depends on how he recruits off of this stretch. He's not going to have the issues that he had at ISU relating to big time recruits with their own agendas. I think that he'll do just fine. Maybe not Gonzaga of the Midwest fine, but in the hunt for conference championships every year.

    Probably true but some years that conference title isn't worth a whole lot, like this year.

    While that's true, it's been hypothesized that Jacobson had more to do with UNI's success. McD inherited a healthy program at Creighton, and also has had the luxury of having his son on the team. That will make up for an awful lot in a mid-major conference.

    I bet Creighton wins less games next year than they did this year.

    I agree with this. McD always had one/two above average to very good players at Iowa State. In the MVC that's basically all you need with a handful role players. That strategy doesn't seem to work in major conferences.

    Maybe, but if Doug McD stays (and it looks like he will), they lose only 1 player averaging more than 4 points per game. I can see them winning 30 games next year, partly with a higher seed giving them a deeper run in the NCAAs. We'll see...

    you mean as of now...history shows that he has about 4 transfers yet to come out.

    I don't think he will "eff" anything up at Creighton. He did well at UNI and will continue to have success in Omaha. He was dealt a tough hand coming in and I believe he was in over his head a little as well at ISU. He's a good man, it just didn't work out. No reason to run the guy through the mud

    Now Chizik on the otherhand!! Mud away!!
