    The administration finally got serious about being a legitimate and consistent contender in men's basketball. Finally. Thumbs up to Ronnie, Hank and Bill.

    Will be fun to see Hoiberg vs McDermott competing for Omaha kids!

    It has probably already been mentioned but has anyone entertained the possibility that he probably is OUR leading candidate and yet Hoiberg has absolutely no intention of taking the Nebraska job.

    Seth Davis said pretty much the same thing about coaches not liking to recruit. He was talking about how he thinks Luke Walton would be a good fit at UCLA. Whoever Seth was talking to said he had heard that Walton didn't want to have to recruit kids. That is when Seth said, "Nobody likes to recruit".

    Yes, I've said that this feels like Bill Self in 2000 all over again. It's possible that the source is Hoiberg's agent leaking this so that he might get a better offer from someone else.

    But if the source is someone connected to our athletic department, I doubt they would leak it to the media unless they feel like there's a good chance he will accept the job. Unless Miles himself is the source and is trying to sabotage Bill Moos on the way out.

    There seems to be a fair amount of optimism when there is a some probability that the only interest that exists is on our part.

    I have no doubt that we are indeed targeting Hoiberg just not sure the interest is mutual

    I think we'd have moved on if Hoiberg wasn't showing serious interest.

    Of course he isn’t going to come out and affirm that he will be the next Coach or that he is even considering being the Nebraska Coach... Just have to have faith that Moos has been in touch with him and his agent..

    I don’t think we are very far into this process. Miles hasn’t been fired and we haven’t even started tracking flights yet.

    I know moos supposedly missed the big ten tourney to watch his kid - anyone know where Hoiberg was during this time

    Hoiberg was at the Big Ten tourney watching his kid.

    It's possibly he met with Moos on Tuesday or Wednesday in Chicago when Moos was there. Journal-Star says contact has been made and discussions are advanced:

    I'm hearing Jim Tressel has head coach, Scott Frost as associate head coach, and Will Muschamp as assistant coach.

    Well, Hoiberg owned Iowa (4-1), so that's a good start..

    He’s a big name. Wasn’t good in the NBA... hope this isn’t a Chip Kelly situation.

    My concern with him is how long does he stay. I don't see him being a long term type of guy.

    Calapari and Petino both didn't work out great in the NBA either. Of course they both coached at places that probably had no problem breaking the rules.

    Well, I hope Nebraska can get him, but I am one who will believe it when he’s actually introduced as the new head coach. Good luck in these matters of men’s basketball usually doesn’t go Nebraska’s way. Hopefully that will change.

    If that's the case it needs to read "Nebraska looking to replace Miles with Brad Stevens"

    As far as I know they've reached a deal in principle. At this point the discussion is about Assistant pool and stuff like that.

    Are you saying Chip was a bad hire at UCLA? He's only been there one year, and had the same conference record Frost did here in Year 1. He will make UCLA Football relevant when he gets his players and system in place, and I think Hoiberg would do the same for Nebraska Basketball.

    Nick Saban wasn't good in the NFL, and had a tough first year at Alabama. Seems to have worked out well for them in the end.

    Here in UCLA country the "fans" are already dusting off their torches and pitchforks following Kelly's #44 Rivals recruiting ranking with only 3, 4-stars.

    He did have a heart aneurysm a long time ago, he's had some surgeries and wears a pacemaker. I don't think it's anything to worry too much about.

    I ll admit, I wasn't sure IF NU would be willing to open the check book. Granted, nothing is a done deal. I m assuming itsi going to take a few Benjamin's. What I am on record saying is I didn't think we would be hiring a P5 coach. This would be better

    If Hoiberg does become your next coach (and I would be surprised if he is), be prepared for the type of player he will bring in. He is heavy on transfers...and they usually have criminal or academic problems.

    Tim Miles was heavy on transfers. None of them had criminal or academic problems.

    What a bunch of bs. Not everyone can get a stand-up coach like psychofran.

    It’s not bs. Go back and look at the transfers he brought to ISU and the history of some of them.

    Was that really a pattern with Hoiberg, or are you just a whiny little trolling asshat with way too much time on his hands?
