    Which perplexes mean considering the staff has seemed to prioritize him from the beginning (along with Miller obviously)

    I wonder if the young defensive coach for Michigan will become the new head coach? (yaklich, I think it is)

    This pretty much confirms what Ward said. Texas Tech is bringing in a 2019 power forward for a visit infers they didn't land their first choice, aka Holyfield.

    Should we have a preference of 1 or the other of these grad transfer QB's?

    I'd love to get Moss, though, I'd be a bit concerned he would take PT away from Griffin & Jones. However, if we somehow added Holyfield & Moss, we're talking top 25 team and a lock for the tourney IMO.

    2019 NBA Draft

    I'm surprised by how many are hiring agents but projected to go in the mid-late 2nd round. That's shocking to me! To each their own.

    I'd probably say my realistic expectation for Kofi next year would be 8 and 6 with the obvious influence defensively in the paint (mostly because he is HUGE). IMO, if we get that or anything more, that would be amazing.

    I think there are a few posters who may be a little overly critical of Kofi. But IMO a lot of us are realistically cautious that Kofi isn't going to come in and dominate. I think it's more than fair to temper our expectations for ANY big outside of the top 10. Historically post players take time...

    I was at a coaching conference a little over a year ago and heard Knight talk. Unfortunately I saw the same things, it's really quite sad how much his memory is slipping him. No exaggeration, he literally repeated some things at least 20 times. You could tell the crowd felt uncomfortable about...

    Izzo proving he's the best in business. No doubt he had far less talent than Duke and still found a way to beat them.

    To be fair, I'm pretty sure Eifert made the rebound in regulation that could've sealed the game had Cline made both free throws.

    Elite Eight Games

    They did, but it's still considered a loose ball and therefore not a backcourt violation. Technically they don't count that as possession. Although, IMO, a controlled tip is close enough to possession that I think it should be counted. I'm pretty sure controlled tips are sometimes counted as...

    Good point on that foul up 3. At the moment I thought it was a great call, obviously that back fired lol. I do think it's better to foul with a little less time than 6 seconds though.

    I think this moves the needle for Nebraska to be consistently in the top half of the Big Ten. Hoiberg is a great hire for them and paired with their resources will be a dangerous combo.
