    I know, way behind the times ! However, I joined Huskerboard.com and Huskerpedia (HuskerMAX) BBS forums.

    I tried to become an OU fan but I can't ... completely different atmosphere compared to NU and I can't stand Boomer Sooner fight song every fricking play !

    I had never really followed Sooners football especially leaving Bevo Conference (used to be Big12). BTW, my house is two miles away from Gaylord stadium !

  7. Official HB Good Beer Thread

    I didn't understand why enjoyed beer taste. Worst than swimming in 100% urine. And alcohol/beer are dangerous (i.e. heart/artery disease, cancer, DUI, out of control violent and dumb actions, etc). I prefer banned beer commercials on TV. Magazines and billboards too. Just like cigarette ads ......

  14. FOX analyst Klatt thinks NU can overachieve due to Tanner Lee

    Basically, it seems to the large majority of talking heads, pundits, odds makers, etc etc, if NU goes 9 wins or better, it will be an 'over achievement' I don't feel that is quite fair but as most people premise their comments on the Riley life history of "air it out Riley offense' and we are about to 'start' a Transfer QB from Tulane University Green Wave (not exactly a juggernaut). This is pretty much common sense thinking really and after two decades of mediocrity and a complete lack of championships for Nebraska within many people's memories, there is only one way Riley and NU will get over this and that's simply to WIN games. Last year, we ran off 7 wins and found ourselves being talked about as relevant again. Then, the injuries and disappointments, etc came again, almost as if 'on schedule'. This fall's team has their fate solely in their own hands - the fans will be there loud and strong and rock the house for them but ultimately it is up to the players to play the games with the kind of heart and desire and determination and 'Won't Be Beat!" mentality that turns heart breaking losses in to fan delighting wins. Effort and guts and smart football (coaches and players) will decide the fate of 2017 Husker football. over achieve or under achieve - it is up to the players to determine the future. Overachieve team = Boise State ..... year after year. Not once 4 or 5 star players; none. Mostly 2 stars and a few 3 stars.
