Current Husker Season Sorely Reminiscent of ’14-15 Campaign, Miles’ Career

In my offseason article this past summer, I mentioned how the 2018-19 season had the makings to be another disappointing year following a postseason run akin to 2014-15. This prediction is turning out to be more accurate than I would like. Through 21 games this year, the Huskers are 13-8 overall and 3-7 in the Big Ten. Through the same stretch in ’14-15, Nebraska was … Continue reading Current Husker Season Sorely Reminiscent of ’14-15 Campaign, Miles’ Career

Miles Ahead: Writing Is on the Wall for Miles as Huskers Lose Fourth in a Row, I Need Runza

Photo by Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports I’ve been silent for a little while now, but It’s time I finally address the hard-hitting issues: when will the Nebraska Union get a vendor that offers deals based on the temperature?

Miles Ahead: Huskers Cruise to 2-0, Chants of “We Want Duke” Reverberate Through State

Folks, Nebrasketball stock is starting to skyrocket. Two games into the 2018-19 season and the good guys from Lincoln eviscerated their opponents by a combined score of 193-72. I’ve taken the liberty to name myself the official stockbroker for Nebrasketball, and my asking price is reasonable: $100,000 and a lucrative job. Buy, buy, buy. The numbers speak for themselves: a rebound margin of 21, 35 … Continue reading Miles Ahead: Huskers Cruise to 2-0, Chants of “We Want Duke” Reverberate Through State

Miles Ahead: Nebraska Basketball Season Kicksoff Tonight, Respectfully Declines Caleb Lightbourn’s Advice on the Matter

Photo via Huskers.com I’ve always known Nebraska was a basketball school at heart. I’ve been waiting for this ever since Barry Collier saved his genius for Butler and birthed the success of some guy who now coaches in Boston, since Cookie Miller put defenders in a bind where their hands were caught in a jar that’s his namesake, since the thunder-from-down-under, Aleks Maric, once played … Continue reading Miles Ahead: Nebraska Basketball Season Kicksoff Tonight, Respectfully Declines Caleb Lightbourn’s Advice on the Matter

Miles Ahead: Nebraska Has Another Eventful Offseason, but Pieces Are There for Successful 2018-19

There are coaching changes and player departures that come with it, but it’s mainly a time for players to work on their individual skills and hit the weight room, for new players to get their first taste of college, and for coaches to recruit, watch film, and work on new strategies. The … Continue reading Miles Ahead: Nebraska Has Another Eventful Offseason, but Pieces Are There for Successful 2018-19

Miles Ahead: The NCAA Tournament Selection Process

Quality over quantity. This popular statement can apply to many aspects of life. For me, it’s prominent with my golf game. All I need is one sub-100 round per year and I’ll call it good. The NCAA Selection Committee is a big fan of this mindset Arizona State, Oklahoma, Syracuse, and Texas were among the last teams to make this year’s NCAA Tournament. Last week … Continue reading Miles Ahead: The NCAA Tournament Selection Process
