A new state of the art practice facility is in place, a new arena will be up and running in two seasons. Can Nebraska afford to suffer through more two years of limited talent, slow painful play and losing? Long time former College basketball coach Tom Penders tweeted the other night ”Who the hell fired Danny Nee and why? That guy should be selling shoes at Payless!” We had Penders on the show and he talked about how hard it is to sell Doc’s slow down style to the masses. Penders questioned how effective a great defense can be if you can’t score.
Doc Sadler came to Nebraska with a plan to run, baseline to baseline, tennis on the hard court. Instead he changed his style to better suit what his best player at the time Aleks Maric did best. Somewhere after the big aussie left and where we are now Doc lost his way and his plan. When this first season in the big 10 ends Athletic director Tom Osborne must sit down and evaluate what’s the best course of action for the big red.
