Their conference record in seven wins and six losses, and their record in Lincoln is twelve and one. Pretty good for a team that was supposed to finish near the bottom of the conference, and early in the league schedule some felt this might be a little too generous.
But, Coach Miles, Terran Petteway, Walter Pitchford, Shavon Shields, Ray Gallegos, the rest of the team, and I never lost hope. We knew if we kept working hard, and when I say we, I mean them, I offer all of the emotional, and psychological support I can from 1,000 miles away, and through the medium of television, (which is not really a duplex communication medium, you know?), and I think that has helped quite a bit.

Club level, they are always the best there, Coach."
Anyway, enough of my personal glory.
Coach Tim Miles, and his team have made this the most exciting basketball season I can remember. For that we should all thank him. He has started something amazing, and it is only the beginning.
Thank you, Coach Miles, and in the oh so appropriate words of Bob Dylan,
"May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation,
When the winds of changes shift,
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
And may you stay forever young"
Dylan always said best, didn't he?
