Tim Miles didn’t make any friends at Creighton Saturday afternoon.
During a Big Ten Network sideline interview at Memorial Stadium, Miles was asked about the challenges of recruiting at Nebraska.
“The good part about that,” he said, “is we’re the only show in the state, we’re the only show in the area.”
That’s not the type of thing Creighton fans are likely to forget. In fact, Bluejays coach Greg McDermott, a friend of Miles, responded quickly on Twitter.
“Interesting perspective,” McDermott said.
“Just to put an end to this. My comments today had nothing to do with Creighton. Have too much respect for Mac & BB tradition at CU to say anything bad about them. I was talking about the support of Husker Athletics!!!”
Miles and Creighton meet Dec. 6 in Lincoln.
