At least it looks like we’ll have some company in the league next year…

Osborne stating “hoop commitment” at NU would be like JoePa guaranteeing PSU hoop commitment.
I have not seen the latter! Nuff said…

Isn’t Osborne the AD? So it would be more like TC guaranteeing PSU hoop commitment.

Nebraska is building a practice facility with one gym each for the men’s basketball team and women’s team.

He is now, but Osborne is revered like JoePa is here thanks to his coaching career.

Maybe Toby Keith will rent out the gym to rehearse? :wink:

I “meant what I said.” Yes, I know Tom O. is the AD. So, I guess I used a somewhat mixed metaphor. But, PSU people would “PUT TRUST” in JoePa …like NU people “PUT TRUST” in Osborne.

Hmmm, I would have more faith in the AD making that statement than JoePa. If JoePa says it, I can’t hold him to it. He really has no say. But if the AD makes the statement, then I can hold him to the fire if he doesn’t come through.

Tom Osbourne’s comments are partially in response to this article by the Omaha World-Herald Lee Barfknecht (their version of our Dave Jones ?? )

Barfknecht also appeared on a local radio show to discuss his column.

notice the comments about the NIT banners starting about 3:40…while I’m all for bringing in hoops memorabilia, I have always thought that we are overtly banner happy, next thing you know we’ll have a banner declaring our participation in teh Charleston Classic

reduce the banners to four categories: NCAA tourney appearances, NCAA tourney final fours, Conf championships & Conf tourney championships.
