Early Break: At what point would the Tim Miles discussion get back to being awkward, and how awkward would it be?

  • Nothing seemed awkward when Nebraska was riding a 7-game losing streak in what was supposed to be an easy stretch of play, as it seemed inevitable that Tim Miles would be fired at the end of the year.
    • That’s still a strong possibility, but what happens if the team goes on a run after Wednesday’s defeat of Minnesota?
  • Northwestern isn’t a terribly tough game tomorrow, and Penn State will be a test, but not unbeatable the following game. -What will it take for the conversation to get awkward again about whether or not Miles is fired?
