LINCOLN, Neb. — New Nebraska coach Tim Miles is selling hope that the Cornhuskers can win in the Big Ten. He's doing it with lots of energy.
He said in an interview Thursday with The Associated Press that the Nebraska basketball "train is moving forward" and that "you're either on board or you're in the way."
Since getting hired away from Colorado State, he's begun assembling a staff, met with players to see who is staying laid the groundwork for recruiting.
Miles also has strived to generate excitement among a fan base that's grown largely indifferent from decades of losing. He's appeared at booster functions, thrown out the first pitch at a Nebraska baseball game and even hosted a pizza party for students on Wednesday night.
