Twitter: Tim Miles meets Nebraska fans for lunch

Not only is Tim Miles a great basketball mind, he’s a man of the people. Whether he’s making beat writers’ lives easier with a must-hear soundbite, tweeting at halftime or helping a fan propose to his girlfriend, Miles is easy to respect. Then there’s this: Miles, on Monday, made two Nebraska fans’ day by meeting them for lunch.

It was all organized on Twitter. The fans, Ethan Hardin (@goinHARDINhere) and Connor Larson (@conlars24), tweeted Miles about the meet-up Sunday night. Miles replied, and the three went back and forth before deciding on a time (1 p.m.) and an exact location (Raising Cane’s in downtown Lincoln).

This isn’t the first time the fans have tried to get Miles out to Cane’s. There’s this, this and this, among other overtures. Clearly, Miles was just waiting to join them on Cinco de Mayo.

Hardin and Larson are even bigger Miles fans now.

Hardin’s wife tweeted, too:
