    Gainesville Sun? You mean Brockway? Dude works like 25 days a year. If we were to wait on the Sun to break news, we would likely still be asking if Brent Pease is our offensive coordinator.

    Seems Nebraska is holding the announcement back but it's gonna happen. Perhaps giving Mike White the time to announce a replacement. Surely he had a #2 guy on his list.

    This!!

    It's why we cannot go with the story. As I said before I don't doubt the word of our people in the know but we can't go on that alone. It's a very touchy situation for us.

    This account actually nails some pretty big news. Can't defend the way he is reporting this one though.

    While all of this might be true, it doesn't dispute the other stuff being reported.

    Sounds like it is coming from someone with an ax to grind against White. Or someone who is trying to harm him on the recruiting trail. For sure it is someone hiding behind a useless Twitter name.

    By "being reported," you mean what one message board thread and one fan Twitter site say?

    There is certainly more solid intel than that, even if not published or posted.
    Still—- I think it is prudent for people to reserve judgement until comfortable with the source of what the information may be ... whether A twitter handle, a blogger, the Gainesville Sun or Chris Harry.

    The Omaha Journal Star is reporting this Robin Washut / HuskerOnline.com story ...

    2. All signs are pointing to Florida associate head coach Armon Gates joining the Nebraska basketball program as a top assistant, according to Robin Washut of HuskerOnline.com.
    This could be an interesting development considering Gates just left Northwestern for Florida on April 8.
    He spent five seasons at Northwestern and before that, three under Porter Moser at Loyola-Chicago.
    Perhaps Gates feels more comfortable near the Big Ten footprint, specifically the Chicago area.
    Or maybe Nebraska, ahem, showed him the money.
    At any rate, Gates on the surface would appear to be a hire that would make sense for Tim Miles -- so long as Gates could come in and be an impact recruiter immediately.
    Kenya Hunter won’t be easy to replace.


    Driving for 6: Bunch’s story perhaps more interesting than we thought; and Bookie's big spring at OU

    Two sources:
    1. HuskerOnline.com / Robin Washut
    2. the Omaha Journal Star blip
    Those are the only sources I have found on this.
