Frosted Flakes: The Close Of A Difficult Season

That and football, UFC, and Apple in today’s flakes

We now sit and wait.

The Nebraska basketball season has now come to a close. They went 19-17 with a 6-14 record in the Big Ten. It was not what any of us wanted or really expected for this squad. We wanted a season that had the Huskers in the top half of the Big Ten and a nice little “one win” run in the NCAA Tournament.

The coaches were ready, the talent was there, but the basketball gods had other plans.

Tim Miles has just completed his seventh season with the team. His record at Nebraska is 116-114. Two above five hundred in those seven years. His second year he made it to the dance but made a quick exit in the first round. It would be four more years before the Huskers would see the post season again. There they again made an early exit in the NIT.

Nebrasketball made a nice late season surge this year in the NIT with a team bandaged up with determination, grit, and walk on’s.

Now, we wait.

The rumors are rampant that the athletic department will make a coaching change now that the season is over. I have not commented on it much because I believe that our focus on this site is on the current team and coaches, not speculation.

The speculation might very well be true. Many believe that a change is coming.

Until then, we sit and wait.

And congratulate Tim Miles and his team on another year.

Anyway, on to flakes...
