    This is the kind of impatience we don't need with this staff. We don't need to put any extra burdens of expectations on this class, this year, anything. Let the coaches do their work, let the recruits sign as they may, let the games play out as they do, and don't judge them by some arbitrary set of expectations. Expect nothing. Just sit back and relax and enjoy the show. That's the best thing Husker Fan could do for the next two or three years.

    The game that sticks in my mind for Taylor Martinez is @ Kansas State his freshman year. We were #7 in the nation and were coming off a lousy effort against SDSU. Many analysts had us losing to K St and Martinez burned Manhattan down. Wildcats were 4-0 at the time with a win over UCLA. It was a Thursday night game with a lot of anticipation and he exploded for 241 rushing yards and 4 TD, only 15 carries. He only threw the ball 7 times and we won 48-13.

    Greg Sharpe talked at an event last week, and Coach Frost wants to make some changes to our Spring Practice format. He doesn't want the break in the middle that we've had in recent years, so they're starting after spring break, and running all the way to the end of April. The Spring Game will be April 28th and we should get some news on this soon. I would expect that we'll be the only B1G school playing that day (or at least the biggest), so we should get a ton of attention and the whole game on BTN.

    There seriously needs to be, in college football and in the private sector as well, a conversation about changing radically how people at the top, who FAIL are rewarded financially. It is a complete load of bulls*** how an incompetent person like Mike Riley can go 19-19, fail miserably at every conceivable level, and still walk away with 12 million dollars. My solution is: lower the base pay to a max cap of $1,000,000. Then, give huge bonuses, even higher than what is offered now, that reward championships and success. If a coach fails and is fired, he gets NOTHING except whatever base pay he is entitled to up to the point of being fired. That's how it works in the real world for almost everyone (minus the bonuses for doing great in most cases). Why should certain people be so richly rewarded for failure? Makes no sense and it needs to change.

    I'd like to see more lively, balanced debate myself. On the other hand.....I'm really impressed at the quality of political discussion here on a Nebraska football fanboard, of all places. Any one who has ventured into the comments section of....well pretty much anywhere on the internet knows it gets much, much, worse. I really expected a more full-throated defense of Trump given how easily he carried the state. The critical voices here are not so much rote liberals as they are libertarians, discerning conservatives and pragmatists. I know it feels like people are piling on Donald Trump and just can't let go of the fact that he won, but in all my years as an American, I can assure you I've never seen anything like this. It's weird and it's dangerous. I know people willing to defend Trump, and I know for a fact they are good, sane people, but they are wrong. And the GOP is wrong. And they know it and they're not sure what to do next. Pragmatic voices are needed and I don't care about the political affiliation. Turns out there ISN'T a war on Christmas, but there actually is a war on science, academia, the media and history itself. So the people who most closely study solvable issues and vet the facts are being undermined wholesale by people who might lose money and influence if people know the truth. I know it sounds smug and elitist to claim to have the facts on your side, but I think one of the reason Trump supporters are slowing down is that we're getting farther away from Hillary Clinton having anything to do with anything. So the remaining evidence is pretty overwhelming: Donald Trump doesn't give a s#!t about anything but himself. He's a mistake who will continue to be an embarrassment - at best; a profound danger at worst.

    Talking about Tanner Lee's signature win here at Nebraska a few days ago made me wonder what the signature wins of each of the last few eras have been. Help me out if I'm missing someone: CALLAHAN ERA Joe Dailey (2004) - I'm going with 2004 Baylor. Dailey was 25/40 for 300 yards, four TDs and one INT. Huskers led 31-7 at half or Dailey could have rung up bigger stats. Zac Taylor (2005-2006) - Couple to choose from, and they're back-to-back games. 2005 Colorado, the "Restore the Order" shirt game, where Colorado was supposed to beat Nebraska but instead, in Boulder, Zac and the boys crushed the Buffs 30-3, and the CU student section got ejected. The next game was the 2005 Alamo Bowl against Michigan, where the #20 Wolverines were supposed to stomp little old Nebraska - and they appeared well on their way, leading 28-17 until Zac, despite getting sacked five times by Michigan's fierce pass rush, led a fourth-quarter comeback to score the go-ahead TD on a pass to Terrance Nunn... only to almost see it all evaporate with a crazy punt return featuring 800,000 laterals that almost scored as time expired. Sam Keller (2007) - Not a whole lot to choose from here, so probably going to go with Keller's conference win against Iowa State. This was Nebraska's last win before the five-game losing streak that led to Callahan's termination, and while Keller wasn't stellar, the only other options are wins over Nevada, Wake Forest or Ball State, and only one of those was by more than one TD. Joe Ganz (2007-2008) - Ganzy took over for the injured Sam Keller during the 2007 Texas game. He absolutely TORCHED Kansas State two weeks later in a 73-31 rout. This was a hell of a fun game and easily my pick for the best of the Ganzy Era. Ganzy needed a lot of help to win the others. PELINI ERA Joe Ganz (2008) - A couple of players span a couple of eras, so Ganzy gets two entries. Two more to consider for Ganzy: 2008 Colorado, which featured Alex Henery's school record 57-yard Field Goal and Suh's pick-six, but the problem with this game is Ganz' sack made that field goal attempt necessary - and highly unlikely. The other option is 2008 Clemson in the Gator Bowl, where Nebraska beat Dabo Swinney's first-year Tigers. Personally, that Clemson win was far less likely, and took a far guttier performance by Ganz. The KSU game would be his biggest victory, but this was his toughest. Zac Lee (2009-2010) - The 2009 Fightin' Pelinis were a defensive team, and Lee wasn't very flashy. He started all 13 games in 2009, but by 2010 he had ceded the team to Taylor Martinez. Lee wasn't much of a quarterback, more of a caretaker, but he was at the helm of the 2009 Holiday Bowl when Nebraska (and Ndamukong Suh) throttled Arizona 33-0. But Lee's signature win came against Missouri, in Columbia, in a driving rain when Nebraska had done absolutely nothing through three quarters. Lee was actually going to be benched in this game, but a 56-yard pass to Niles Paul early in the fourth quarter sparked a 27-0 run that turned a sure loss into a laugher. Lee followed that up with two more TDs, another to Paul and one to Mike McNeill, before Roy Helu iced the game with a rushing TD. Taylor Martinez (2010-2013) - This is, by far, the hardest QB to pick just one signature win for. T-Magic had so many highlight-reel plays, so many wins that fell squarely on his shoulders. He baffled defenses. He was a mismatch in the open field, and if he got a crease - boom! he was gone. Even after the lower leg injury of his Freshman year, Taylor reeled off some shockingly good plays. The 2012 conference championship game against Wisconsin was utterly forgettable except for Kenny Bell absolutely clocking a Badger DB, and for Taylor's insane scramble-turned-bazillion-yard-touchdown run. But of all the games, my pick for Martinez' signature win has to be the 2012 Michigan State game in East Lansing. Taylor set up Nebraska's first score on a long run, then tied the game up just before halftime with a 71-yard sprint. Michigan State took a 24-14 lead into the fourth quarter until Taylor guided the team back with a 35-yard scoring run, and after getting the ball back, Martinez led them downfield for the game-winning TD - a fade to Jamal Turner with six seconds left. Tommy Armstrong (2013-2014) Tommy also spans a couple of coaching eras, so I'll pick two for him, too. I think the Bo Pelini version of Tommy's signature win came against Georgia in the 2013 Gator Bowl. This game featured Nebraska's longest play from scrimmage, a 99-yard bomb from Armstrong to Quincy Enunwa to seal the win. RILEY ERA Tommy Armstrong (2015-2016) - 2016 Oregon was a hell of a fun game, and Tommy was heroic, but his signature Riley Era win - probably the best win of his career - was the comeback victory over previously unbeaten and 6th-ranked Michigan State in 2015. Tommy ran for two touchdowns and threw the game-winner, all in the fourth quarter, to equal Nebraska's largest fourth-quarter comeback in school history. Tanner Lee - (2017) Purdue. Gotta be, right? There's only four to choose from - unless you want to count the Spring Game. Lee was 32-50 for 431 yards, no INTs and two fourth-quarter touchdowns to lead the comeback in West Lafayette - again tying Nebraska's largest fourth-quarter comeback in school history.

    We can stop beating around the bush. No more "that has racial undertones" or "he is enabling white supremacists." We need to just call Trump what he is, a racist. I'm sorry for the long post. These actions are weaved in and out of other threads in Politics & Religion, but I felt this topic deserves its own. In the 1970s, the Department of Justice sued the Trumps for discrimination based on the Fair Housing Act, while Donald was President of the Trump Organization. Rental agents were instructed not to rent to blacks and to reduce the number of black tenants. Applications were marked with secret codes for minorities. Trump settled and agreed to meet certain standards. The Department of Justice renews the discrimination charges when the Trumps continue to discriminate in spite of the settlement agreement. In 1989, after 5 black and Latino Harlem teenagers Harlem were accused of assaulting and raping a white woman in Central Park, Trump spent $85,000 placing full-page ads in the four daily papers in New York City, calling for the return of the death penalty. “Muggers and murderers should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes.” 14 years after their sentences were vacated based on DNA evidence and the detailed and accurate confession of a serial rapist named Matias Reyes, Mr. Trump has doubled down. “They admitted they were guilty. The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous.” In 1991, Trump is quoted: "“ Black guys counting my money! I hate it… Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that’s guy’s lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks.” He did not confirm the quote at the time but 7 years later said it "was probably true." In 1992, a Judge found the Trump Plaza Hotel discriminated when it removed an African-American dealer from a table at the request of a wealthy player. In 1993, during a Congressional hearing talking about Native American casino officials, Trumps says, "They don't look like Indians to me" and accuses them of working with organized crime. He adds that political correctness have given Native American status to some people who don’t “look like Indians.” He would renew these attacks recently against Senator Warren. In 2000, after renewing his attacks on Native Americans, Trump agrees to apologize and pays a $250,000 for secretly buying ads against Native American-owned casinos. The ads included pictures of syringes and cocaine and asked, "Are these the neighbors we want? “ 2011, birtherism begins. Trump leads the charge attacking our first black President's birth. He also questions Obama's placement at Columbia and Harvard and says he "should get off the basketball court." In June 2013, before the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin trial, Trump tweets: An FBI report disputes this claim. In February 2015, Trump says Mexico is sending "criminals" over the border. That June, while announcing his candidacy, he now calls Mexicans coming across the border "rapists." The next month, he tweets and later deletes that Bush “has to like the Mexican illegals because of his wife,” a Mexican immigrant. November 2015, after a black protester chanting “Black Lives Matter” at a Trump rally in Alabama rally was pushed and punched, Trump tweets and later deletes false statistics about the percentage of whites killed by blacks. 2015 to present, Muslim ban... While giving a foreign policy speech in Poland in July 2017, Trump stresses the need to protect “the West, “civilization” against forces from “the South and East” that threaten western values. The U.S. Department of Justice concluded that Joe Arpaio oversaw the worst pattern of racial profiling in U.S. history, and subsequently filed suit against him for unlawful discriminatory police conduct. Arpaio's office paid more than $146 million in fees, settlements, and court awards. Multiple courts find him guilty of racial profiling. A Federal court issued an injunction barring him from conducting further "immigration round-ups". Despite this, Arpaio's office continued to detain "persons for further investigation without reasonable suspicion that a crime has been or is being committed." In July 2017, he was convicted of criminal contempt of court. In August 2017, a white nationalist attending a rally drove a car into a crowd, killing one protester and injuring many more. Trump condemned “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides.” He did not mention white supremacists or nationalists specifically. December 2017, Trump says Haitians "all have AIDS." In related statements this week, Trump says he wants immigrants from (white) countries like Norway instead of "s#!tholes" like (black) Africa.

    Fine, I will try not to be entirely dismissive of The Federalist and respond to the quoted article. But I will not entertain this again if you come back with Breitbart drivel or the like. It appears that link is broke and certainly doesn't direct me to any quote from Obama accusing whites of "white privilege." A quick Google search finds no such quotes. If he did recite this phrase, I'd like to hear the context. That representation was in response to Obama's speech regarding police shootings: I thought that was an eloquent statement that showed the utmost respect and support for law enforcement but did not turn a blind eye to "problems across the criminal justice system." There are plenty of examples of systemic racism within police departments and the courts. For context, Michael Brown, Freddy Gray, and Tamir Rice died around this time. In Ferguson, the Justice Department found "direct evidence of racial bias and stereotyping about African Americans by certain Ferguson police and municipal court officials." SOURCE In Baltimore, the City Police Department (BPD) "engage[d] in a pattern or practice of conduct that violates the First and Fourth Amendments of the Constitution as well as federal anti-discrimination laws. BPD makes stops, searches and arrests without the required justification; uses enforcement strategies that unlawfully subject African Americans to disproportionate rates of stops, searches and arrests; uses excessive force; and retaliates against individuals for their constitutionally-protected expression. The pattern or practice results from systemic deficiencies that have persisted within BPD for many years and has exacerbated community distrust of the police, particularly in the African-American community." SOURCE In Cleveland, the Police Department exhibited a "pattern or practice of using unreasonable force in violation of the Fourth Amendment, including the unnecessary and excessive use of deadly force, including shootings and head strikes with impact weapons." SOURCE Are you disputing the facts that led to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act signing? And how exactly is believing women should be paid the same as a man for the same work in any way similar to Donald Trump's racist actions? The article in support for this representation is so circular and convoluted, I'm having trouble following and seeing how it supports this position. It does thoroughly attack Don Lemon, "left-wingers," and "The Left" and says nothing about white Christians. There, I've played your game. In that entire list, the one thing Obama directly did was the speech regarding police shootings, and I don't disagree with it at all. Like he encouraged, I support our law enforcement. But I also recognize it can have problems and won't ignore them. Please never, EVER, try to analogize Trump's overtly racist actions to Obama again.

    Don't forget corruption! Trump himself is corrupt. He keeps dollars flowing into Trump org coffers by golfing every weekend & charging Secret Service ridiculous rates for golf carts. He pushed strongly for a tax bill that saved himself tons of money while screwing us over. The government actively encourages foreign diplomats & officials to use Trump properties while here. His cabinet is just as corrupt. Scott Pruitt built himself a $25,000 soundproof booth in his office on our dime. Betsy Davos has a long history of pushing charter schools to personally benefit from her investments in them. Ryan ZInke likes using government-funded planes for private travel & of course who can forget the massive $300M sweetheart deal his neighbors got to screw up power recovery in Puerto Rico. Steve Mnuchin & his wife took a government plane to KY to watch the solar eclipse from the top of Fort Knox. Oh, and this: If you care about corruption, this administration has turned it up to 11 & broken the dial off.

    None of those things divided the country. The article was full of people talking about their feelings. The links in your article didn't show it either. White privilege does exist, and the justice system is systemically racist (another example of White privilege). Off the top of my head, Whites and Blacks use marijuana at the same rate but the arrest rate for Blacks is 3+ times greater. That's one little example. Stating the truth doesn't divide the country. Having racist and subconsciously racist and others who are easily offended and take the above statements personally does that. I'm White. I don't feel attacked in the least by those statements. Lots of White people get angry just at the phrase "White privilege," as if they're being personally attacked and blamed. Instead of wondering how to improve things. Obama's presidency brought a lot of racists out into the open. Because he's Black.

    An article with some great incite into our "new defensive philosophy" from Ruud. Also a story about Frost from 2002 about helping out Solich..... Music to my ears..... Ask Frost, and he’ll tell you he’s a defensive coach at heart, Ruud said. “He’s like an offensive guru now so I think that’s ship’s sailed, but he really has a passion for defense, especially tackling,” Ruud said. “He likes teaching tackling and he has the whole team do that.” Ruud expects more of that from Frost in Lincoln, although he said that will likely be the extent of Frost’s input for defensive coordinator Erik Chinander. “Coach Frost likes talking not only getting off blocks,” Ruud said, “but receivers and DBs, he runs that drill -- block, get off blocks – it’s like the new version of the Oklahoma drill. It’s out in space, but guys are striking each other, getting off blocks.” Ruud said his coaching philosophy, and that of the Nebraska staff, is simply putting players into a position to succeed. Of utmost importance is finding out where each player fits with his abilities. “We’re a fundamental defense at heart,” Ruud said. “We’re not a schemer defense. We’re going to win with fundamentals. Teach concepts, and teach guys how to play. I think that’s the key. It’s not an Xs and Os things. It’s about, can you see what you’re supposed to see? Can you play with your proper keys? Can you get off blocks, and can you make tackles? That’s really what it’s about. However you want to do that Xs and Os wise, isn’t as important as can players go and execute and get the job done?” http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=100&ATCLID=211691964
