Will He Stay or Will He Go?

  1. 1. Does Petteway Declare for the Draft Wednesday?



Recommended Posts

So we have two starters declare early for the draft - one won't get drafted, the other might not either but definitely won't get drafter high enough to warrent leaving early. Plus we have another potential starter leave.

 

Pretty much the definition of dysfunctional.

Not sure if the dysfunction is 100% blame on the coach. Petteway and Pitch were transfers out of their original schools for a reason.

Disappointed with Smith leaving. As for Petteway and Pichford, I am not losing any sleep on them. After watching this season, neither seemed too invested in the team. My feeling is that this opens the door for the person who NEEDS to be the leader on the team and that is Shavon Shields! I can see him having a great senior season and letting his true leadership skills pull the best out of the returning players as well as the new ones. This years team really seemed dysfunctional. I look for next season to be a much better TEAM.

 

Addition by subtraction!!!

If i were to guess I would put about 10% of the dysfunction blame on Miles. You could just tell in the way the guys acted there was something else going on.

Eight people in all of creation did NOT think Terran Petteway was going to come back to Nebraska next year.

 

All eight are in a coma.

So.....a guy everyone had thought would be entering the draft prior to his horrible season this year, does what we all thought he would do, and leaves.

 

A guy who has transferred multiple times between high school and college decides to hang it up and now apparently try his chances in the NBA, and anybody is surprised? Why?

 

Aside from Tarin Smith leaving, none of these other guys should be surprising at all.

 

The rate of transfers or players who leave early across the NCAA is 40% ( heard this on the radio). Tim Miles so far has a 45% rate. So we're really no more dysfunctional than anybody, if that's even the term to use. It appears to me we are just normal.

Have to admit that the only one here that surprises me was Smith.

 

That said, I get the feeling that this is a watershed moment in Miles's tenure. Either he is going to grow from here or crash.

 

Nobody knows which direction it's going. I'm rooting for the guy all the way.

Completely agree.

 

 

I'm rooting for him too.

Wondering if Smith really is scared off by competition?.............or simply doesn't like our style of offense and how it fits with his game......?

If the later, it calls into question the hiring of Molinari, who's defense first philosophy may not translate to how players want to attack more on offense.....?

Regardless, Miles will now have an opportunity to prove he can coach. This will be a very young team next year.

However, like many others, I am totally rooting for him to mold this fresh group into a successful team.

Nebrasketball had a really disappointing year. I'm not sure why we're panicking at the thought of losing the players we had. Seems like some fresh opportunities and new blood would do the program good. And may even be by design. Roster turnover after all, is the name of the game in basketball.

 

That said, I like Petteway. Seems like the kind of guy who can be a real leader by example for the team.

Losing some players wouldn't be the end of the world. Losing three potential starters isn't good at all. Losing three of your top four scorers off a bad offensive team is worse.

Our woeful offense not withstanding, guys who take 29% of the team's shots and have a 0.9-1 assist to turnover ration don't make good point guards.

I still think Petteway can play PG. He did most of the year away. Plus, he could show the NBA some of his versatility.

Might as well play 5-1 then...

 

TP doesnt have very good court vision. He has good ball handling skills and can pull up and shoot but we need a PG who can distribute the ball.

 

TP likes to shoot off the dribble, but usually that means the defender has time to put a hand in his face.

 

 

I still think he goes NBA.

 

 

We are not a better team without TP but we are probably going to be forced to play more team basketball.

You can not tell me that he was not asked to carry the team because no one else could make an outside shot. I think it would be different next year with White.

Petteway couldn't hit an outside shot either so I'm not sure how much carrying of the team he actually did.

So was he carrying the team last year as well? Didn't we have more outside shooting? Because he took 25% of our shots and had a 0.6-1 assist to turnover ratio that year.

Regardless, the players Miles inherited are & were not good players. And without Petteway, we are lucking to win 10 games each of the last 2 years.

There is no discernible difference between winning 13 games this year with Petteway and winning 10 without him.

Continuing to bemoan the players Miles inherited is a pretty tired act at this point. Miles has been here three years. If it's still the players he was left with that are the problem it's only because he hasn't been able to recruit anyone better. Next year we will have exactly one player taller than 6-8 on the roster and he's a project at best. During Miles first year, the "players he inherited" included a seven-footer, and four players that were 6-10 or 6-11. So when we're getting beat like a drum on the inside in his fourth year will it still be because of the players he inherited?

True enough. One of those players Miles inherited was his best player that year and another one stared several games. I would be shocked if the one he's recruited in the four years since is more of a factor next year the the "other" one he inherited and has no hope of being as much of a contributor as Ubel. Although, if you go on a pound-for-pound basis he may be similar to Almeida.

We defiantly need a big man and I hope Miles gets 2 with his open schollies, with one being a SR transfer or a juco. Good young bigs are hard to find. Rebounding was an issue this year, but I think poor outside shooting was our biggest issue.

By the way, I believe Miles is 47-48 at Nebraska. In his last three years, Sadler was 46-48.

Finishing 4th in the Big 10 and making the tournament in 2014 is something that Miles did achieve. Yes, it could have been a fluke, but it did happen.

You don't have a joint conference to announce you are coming back (when you are not even really considered an NBA draft pick) unless you are a goober, right?

 

That would be like Jake Cotton having a press conference saying he is coming back

Mav is the MAN today!

There is a reason that Miles and his Huskers are picked to finish 13th next year...in the Big Ten.

Mav looks at things logically.

 

He might be the best poster on this board...

 

 

But enough with the love affair.

 

 

Miles deserves criticism. He has done a great job, but he also isnt perfect. I dont blame the transfers on him, that is just what college basketball has become. He has really struggled getting big men to sign on the dotted line. But in his defense, that is a tough position to recruit.

Nebraska is better with Terran Petteway than without him. When did we become one of the silver spoon teams where we can afford to lose someone that contributes over 18 ppg? We need everyone that we can get--especially if they can put it through the hoop, flaws and all.

 

If anyone wants to crucify someone this year, crucify Pitchford for his antics. He partied away our third scoring option and went into zombie mode on the court. Thanks Walt!

 

Miles needs a boot in the butt too. If he would have benched Parker and played Smith, Smith would probably still be here.

 

If Petteway is back next year, he'll have a much better supporting cast and won't feel like he has to do everything himself. I sure hope that he does come back. It will benefit all parties involved.
