Nebraska coach locks team out of locker room

Neb. Basketball Coach Locks Team Out of Locker Room

It's safe to say Nebraska's men's college basketball coach Tim Miles isn't lobbying for most popular coach of the year from his players.

"And they won't be available later this week, and I'm not sure when they'll be available. They won't be in their locker room. There's a lot of things they won't be," Miles said in a press conference Sunday.

Coach Miles is locking his players out of their own locker room. Nebraska's $19 million basketball locker room was opened in 2011 and features pretty sweet amenities like a smoothie bar, a pool table, big TVs and iPod hookups in the shower.

"If you lose five games in a row and seven of the past eight, you'll be grounded. These nice things will be taken away. Head coach Tim Miles did just that," an ESPN reporter said.

Miles said there will be chains on the locker room doors and players won't be available to the media for the foreseeable future.

The team is not having a great year and fell to 13-14 for the season after a loss to Iowa on Sunday. The Cornhuskers made it to the March Madness tournament last year.

Midway through the game, you could tell coach wasn't going to be happy afterward if things kept going the way they were going.

If they want those heated towel racks back, they have some work to do. Clearly, extra wind sprints just aren't cutting it.
