Early Break: National Championship tonight….who brings home the title?

  • Who is America rooting for? The redemption story of Virginia, one year removed from being the first 1-seed to ever lose to a 16-seed….or the upstart story of Chris Beard and Texas Tech? It’s an easy choice for Sorensen…what about Sip and Hot Take?

Early Break: Is Bill Moos’ tenure viewed as a success no matter what happens going forward? / Shut Up Sipple

  • Even if Scott Frost and Fred Hoiberg (somehow) fail, they were viewed by everyone locally and nationally as the ‘home run hires’…so if they were to fail, is that Moos’ fault? Hasn’t he already basically cemented his legacy at Nebraska with his 2 main hires?
  • Shut up Sipple

Early Break: it’s 2 different sports….but can Fred Hoiberg have the same type of success that Dave Van Horn had in his few years here?

  • Van Horn coached Nebraska baseball from 1998-2002 and got Nebraska to the College World Series in 2001, after being on the brink of it in 2000, after the Huskers ended an average tenure before he arrived….but Van Horn changed the culture quickly and turned the program into a quick winner
  • Is it fair to expect a same quick rise in basketball? Texas Tech proved it’s possible..do fans/people believe it’s actually possible for Nebraska…and can baseball get that good again?Early Break: it’s 2 different sports….but can Fred Hoiberg have the same type of success that Dave Van Horn had in his few years here?

Early Break: Break out the brooms—it’s a SWEEP for Husker baseball over Purdue….is this team for real?

  • Nebraska had the bats rolling this weekend, winning Fridays’ game 17-0, Saturday’s contest 13-4, and Sunday’s game 9-5 to beat the Boilermakers and improve to 17-9 overall and 7-2 in B1G play…do you believe in them yet?
  • Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

Early Break: Speaking of Fred Hoiberg, the numbers of his salary were released over the weekend

  • If Hoiberg were to leave after this first season for another Division 1 coaching job, he’d owe Nebraska $11.5 million; $10.25 million after 2 years; $8.75 million after 3 years; $7 million after 4 years; $5.25 million after 5 years; and nothing after 6 or 7 years
  • If he were to leave for the NBA, it’s not as bad: $2.5 million owed to Nebraska if he left after one year; $2 million after 2 years; $1.5 million after 3 years; $500,000 after 4 years; $250,000 after 5 years; and nothing after 6 or 7 years
