    http://www.cornnation.com/2016/6/25...asks-release-from-nebraska-basketball-program. what a great chance for CU to give the big FU to NU. Senior graduate transfer, eligible to play. Strung along coach Tim Miles and the fans until the last days before the draft deadline. Miles went wayyyyy out of his way to get White sit downs with NBA scouts so he could come back with no doubt of his readiness and areas of improvement. Then in late June he does this to the hearts of the red faithful...... Perfect for CU.

    So, The Nubs have two players asking for transfers and this is somehow about CU?

    Would be a solid pick-up. Anyone putting up those type of numbers in the BIG10 is legit. Just not sure where we could use 6'7 SF/PF.

    SF - King, White, Johnson & Fortune
    PF - Johnson, Gordon, Miller & Siewert

    But hey, I am all for it if Tad thinks it would work. If we have the spot than a seasoned grad transfer would be helpful.

    I think the seat is getting hot. He does have talent and he's getting top 150 kids but his best two gets to date were both transfers who didn't stay until they were seniors. AW3 is a KU transfer in to NU, this coming seasons number one option. Last year he lost Terran Pettaway to test draft waters only to play in the d league. Personally I hope Miles is good enough to stay as I enjoy CU (my CU, Creighton) beating up on his team's but he's heading into watershed type times this year or next. AW3 is a good player and it's a huge blow to TM to lose him.

    Miles' problem is he is in the B1G. That means his systems, which can be frustrating as hell when you don't see them often, are pretty much the same as what half the teams in his conference use. Doing what everyone else is doing but with less talent isn't going to get you out of the bottom of the league.

    I think Miles is about as good a coach as they can expect. Going to the B1G was not a help to their hoops program the same way going to the PAC helped ours.

    Should someone correct his last name in the thread title?
