    Sean Eichorst to Chris Mack - Coach I have worked with Tim Miles. I know Tim Miles. Tim Miles was a friend of mine. Coach, you're no Tim Miles.

    I think the minimum age to get that joke is 45. Seems like a lot of jokes on this board recently make me feel this way.

    The "role player" we just offered to replace Ed Morrow averaged 3PPG and 4RPG for Winthrop this past year. 26% from the free throw line. Have to love it. You see, if you go 12-19 and have transfers but replace them with BETTER players...it's no big deal. But, if you go 12-19 and have transfers and don't replace them with better players? Well, you just continue to go under .500.

    If we have two more transfers and Miles isn't immediately fired, then Eichorst should immediately be fired by the Chancellor or Board of Regents.

    It is amazing that Benning can make his cute little comments, and the boot lickers hang on his every word. If someone hints at things here, the same people whine and bitch.

    Two more and we have a decent starting 5 that could go somewhere together.

    Yes, the Bentsen-Quayle debate was in Omaha. Civic Auditorium Music Hall, I think, but I'm not 100% certain about the venue.

    I heard on a message board from a nameless dip$hit that the whole team would leave and that we'll have to have on campus tryouts for walkons just to put a team on the floor if Miles was fired.

    I said that he was valuable role player and that we would miss his minutes. On the other hand you called him the best player on NU's team and that is not true.

    I don't disagree with your sentiment. Ed's surprise exit left us in a bind to try to find a replacement this late in the game. Hopefully we can find a big bodied Juco guy that can give us some minutes at the 5. BTW, the Winthrop center is bigger than Ed and only averaged 14 minutes for them. He's a defensive specialist and his points and rebounds IF projected to the number of minutes Ed played would be similar to Ed's. He shot 61% from the field but I see you chose to omit that fact. I hope we land him. We need him.

    Benning could not have been talking about a Jacobson transfer. There's no way Jake could make the transition from fan favorite Eddie Floorburn who leaves it all on the court to no-talent malcontent who quit on his teammates... by Monday.

    Our basketball program is cursed.
    Barry Collier knew it and tried incense and sht to remove the curse, but it didn't work.
    We don't need a coach, we need a damn witch doctor.

    But putting in put backs from us isnt good enough to value keeping and no big deal if he leaves. On a team that cant shoot. That doesnt have a coach that runs an offense.

    Uh, no I didn't say that, but he apparently is good enough for a coach who just made the Elite 8.

    I could tell by his effort level late in the season that Watson wasn't happy with Miles. And that's interesting to me because of the role Watson had in Miles' "offense". I can understand Morrow and Jacobsen getting tired of setting ball screens and never getting the ball passed to them in the low post.

    Great teams have great role players. Ed Morrow is a great role player. Hopefully, he'll be able to grow his offensive game a little better in a different system and get more opportunities with the ball in his hands.

    Honestly, what fifth year big man would watch film of Tim Miles' offense and want to play in that system?

    Our best bet is finding a big guy who can pick and pop and just shoot the three. Preferably a very large guy who can play behind in post defense and get some position rebounds. Doesn't sound glamorous, but that kind of kid-- if you can find him-- would work in Miles' offense. Basically, a poor man's Mike Daum.

    My mistake. It was that other coaching genius Charlie Marlow that said that. I'm sure that there are lots of coaches that want an energy guy like Ed available off the bench to give them some fouls and rebounds.

    The problem is that according to what he said, Ed doesn't like the role he's suited to fill. He wants to be a wing scorer and he can't shoot or dribble without turning the ball over. I don't know who puts some of the ideas in to these kids' heads. A friend of mine that has been around the Creighton program said that Mac routinely tells his kids that this job is "to get you ready for the NBA". It's interesting that Ed used similar words when discussing his reasons for transferring. We (the schools) are doing a terrible disservice to most of these kids by selling them that line of BS.

    Well the Winthrop kid probably looks at Ed having played 2-3 times as many minutes as him with a smaller body and similar skills and probably thinks, heck I can do that and I may put up better numbers than him in their offense because I'm bigger. BTW, because of that size he also looks like he would be a better post defender in the B1G than Ed.

    Hey look, we now have yet another reason why McDermott has completely dominated Tim Miles - and none of them have anything whatsoever to do with coaching ability.

    It's a shame that this gullible, bloodthirsty lynch mob buys into unsubstantiated rumors when we have rock-solid insider information like this, right at our fingertips.

    It looks like Morrow is also good enough for the team that's won the Big 12 tournament 3 of the last 4 years:

    If he goes there lets get them on the schedule for 2018-19 and 2019-20 so we can get absolutely b@$%&slapped.
