    While Miles is getting more support than previous basketball coaches, it's not enough to compete for the top 4 spots in the Big 10. Football is the money maker here and always will be. Sounds like either the school will have to part ways with Miles or he will have to leave on his own. I do not see him being our basketball coach next year.

    I think we would all be happy with top 7 or top half of the B1G, 95 % time that should get you in the tournament..

    The day and age of instant messaging, can be great van be very destructive, for example look at what happened to the catholic schools children from Kentucky, all it takes is one person to not show the full video and all hell breaks lost, crucified the little bastards. Look at some of the false statements about the president. The Duke lacrosse team. The sad part about this is nobody I mean nobody is ever held accountable. Now we get accusations about bill moos, I don't know the man. He does seem to me a man of integrity. We have no idea who started this, it could be someone that wants miles fire or one that supports miles, it could have came from one of Nebraskas competitors for example Minnesota or Kansas state so it would hurt recruiting. Again any can start a rumor on a message board practically ruin someone's career and there virtually untouchable

    Who ever did this, let's see hard documentation, I mean every freaking detail moos is supposed guilty of. I want pictures, times,dates, events. And IF you can't provide any evidence then go away and STFU!!!

    Again I would ask how Miles managed to plant this rumor such that boosters knew of it back in November before their season even started and time it so that it would bear fruit right at the end of January when yet another underperforming team of his was hitting the skids.

    Also I'd love to know how that possibly saves Miles' job. Any interim or newly-hired AD can fire him. As could an embattled AD for that matter.

    Good point, but if Tim Miles or anyone associated with basketball started it or actively passed it along, they would have do so well before the start of the season when they were feeling that they were in a position of strength with a hugely successful season coming up and yet they had a major grudge against Moos since he didn't extend Miles and give him a raise. So they had motive. That said, who knows who is behind it. Eikworst left behind a small army of administrators who do very little. Any of those people could be on the chopping block as well.

    While you may have heard this rumor in November, it came to a head in the past week the first I heard of it was last night, but I'm not plugged in with boosters or the athletic department at UNL. But all I and others are asking is who stands to benefit from a shake up in the athletic department? If Miles and Moos don't get along (I think we can all call BS on that OWH puff piece) and Miles knows he's on the chopping block it's not farfetched to think he may try to destabilize Moos' standing. It also could have been other ADs who felt they deserved the AD job here or agents of coaches that don't have connections to Moos or other rivals trying to destabilize the athletic department. I don't know who or how the rumors started. My previous post was merely speculation which tends to happen on message boards.

    There's probably fifty schools that we recruit against who would love to see turmoil at NU. It's so easy to plant a "story" and have it get legs. Never mind all those folks in Iowa who love us so much.

    I agree, In this day and age if he had this big of problem and it happens as frequently as some suggest. There would be proof leaked out by now, video, audio, text msg, something. This isn't the government NU can't cover something up for that long. Since there has been no proof, leads me to believe it is a rumor. Since I would hope no Nebraska fan would start such a rumor. I am thinking this is either a Rival program (similar to the Travis Fischer rumors)
    Or it is rumor started by someone who may have a reason to not like Moos, and want him gone. IE Tim Miles. I have heard these 2 are not the best of friends. Miles knows Moos doesn't like him and odds are will fire him. Why not start a rumor, or have an associate start a rumor that could lead to Moos being fired. New AD steps in on short notice and gives Miles another year to "sort things out". Yes this is just my conspiracy theory. lol

    A former work colleague back in the glory days was at a social function and a legislator asked him if he’d like to meet Devaney who was there. (The work colleague was from Illinois and not a big football fan.) He answered that he wasn’t particularly interested in meeting Devaney. He told me later he had never heard of him.

    Needless to say the legislator was a little PO’d. There was only one Bobfather, even if some guy from Illinois hadn’t heard of himLaughing Of course it was probably better for Bob that Gore hadn’t yet invented the Internet. He was renowned for being rowdy at times. He and Moos would have had a lot of fun together.

    A new AD would have to evaluate for a year and then fire.... usually. That would be the professional thing to do. Unless the said new AD were someone already on staff

    I like Bounds and Green and think they are doing a good job.
    Are you implying Moos was out drinking with the aliens that crashed at Roswell?

    Lol, Im saying in this day and age if there is any truth to rumors, there is usually plenty of evidence to support it. Yes, it can be held down for awhile, but eventually it comes out. If Moos is an out of control alcoholic, this isn't something that just happened the last few days or weeks. If he is an alcoholic he has been for a long time. Something should have came out long before now.

    The Old AD was fired because of Riley's job performance. It's different if the old AD was fired for alleged personal demons. There was a clear mandate for Moos to fire Riley. I'd wager after this skid the majority of fans are at least open to canning Miles but he still has enough support that a new AD might not make that move right away.

    I don't know why this is even a discussion..Hank and Ronnie arent going anywhere, Scott and Duvall are wreaking havoc in the weight room, and Matty D is just waiting in the wings. Moos was just a pawn all along, obviously.

    I understand where you are coming from. The timing in the seasons would be about the same if a new AD was hired today. It took approximately a month and a week to replace eichorst. BB season would be over by then. How could the new guy evaluate anything? Moos at least got to witness the late season meltdown in FB. That's why the regents made the change when they did.

    Unless said hypothetical new AD is given his marching orders to fire Miles, Miles will be here another year. Not sure we'd get a good AD to take the job if presented with a list of "to do". They view themselves as professionals and that is their job to manage their employees. Not to be told how to do it by puppet Masters. If it were me I'd say, "what do you need me for? Do your own dirty work? You do your job and let me do mine"

    Yeah, let’s use this as an opportunity to make a completely irrelevant political comment. Go find a political forum where you can post your nonsense all day long. SMH.

    Been listening to sharp and benning this morning, there speculating that someone inside the athletic department started this rumor. If that's true then moos has to find out who did this and show them the door heck maybe it's more than one person. Time to drain the swamp

    Benning is covering his ass and placing blame elsewhere when he should be apologizing for spreading an unsubstantiated rumor. I sincerely doubt that this started anywhere near Nebraska.
