Tom Izzo has special message for Tim Miles

It’s no secret that Tom Izzo isn’t a big proponent of Twitter. So, instead of sending Nebraska coach Tim Miles a congratulatory tweet on a great season, Izzo got in front of the camera and delivered a personal, tongue-in-cheek message to Miles that aired at the Huskers team banquet.

“I don’t even know why in the hell I’m doing this congratulatory video, because I really don’t like you,” Izzo joked. “You cost me a lot this year, probably cost us a chance to win the Big Ten the way we never recovered from that whopping you gave us.”

This is Tom Izzo at his best, ladies and gentlemen.

Tom Izzo’s demeanor will last longer than all of us. I feel blessed that I get to see him coach my favorite team.

It sounds nice. However the more publicity and praise Miles gets the more likely he is to leave for a better gig and then Nebraska goes back to the pooper in bball. It’s strategery. Izzo is also smart.

Izzo has always been one of my favorite coaches! He is a class act, but now that my Huskers are in the BIG I hope we deal them a fit on the court!! Tim Miles has been a huge asset to Nebraska, love him! GBR!
