I'm a sucker, I always come back for Nebrasketball. Having said that, what are your expectations this year?
Alberts and Hoiberg verbally agreed to metrics the program must reach in order for the coach to earn back some of the money promised in his original contract. Because the terms were not put on paper, they are not subject to state public records laws and remain confidential.
Hoiberg wants the Huskers to take on a greater defensive identity. In eight seasons as a college coach, Hoiberg has had only one team finish higher than 245th nationally in scoring defense. His three Nebraska teams have ranked 330th, 268th and 339th.
“What we’re all going to be judged on is how many times we get in that left (win) column," Hoiberg said. "What I’m looking at every day is, are we making progress? We can’t afford to take steps in the wrong direction and then have to go back up.”
I'm not so sure Alberts shares that view. He has said that he wants winning to be the objective in all sports. If he doesn't think Fred is the long-term answer to achieve success, Fred won't be here after this year.Very low expectations for Husker hoops! I bet is zero appetite for firing another coach. Fred will be here for awhile!
