  1. Well I can now confirm that sugar withdrawal is a real thing.......been really changing my diet lately and I've had two major withdrawals in the past three days. Severe headaches, nausea, weakness, shaking, etc. Pretty scary what sugar can do to you!

      I’ve read it’s more addictive than heroin. Drink lots of water and use Excedrin for the headaches. Sugar is poison for the body.

      Definitely. Caffeine and sugar at the same time is even more fun.

      Ahh the keto flu.  Get some broth and make sure you're getting loads of electrolytes (it's what plants crave) but really put some salt in a glass of water should help ease the symptoms.

  2. Tyjon Lindsey

    Hopefully that's good news, this guy is one we should keep our eye on in this new offense. He fits into it perfectly with what he brings to the table.
  3. Scott Frost Signing Day Presser

    The amount of work this staff has put in the past few months is nothing short of miraculous and insane all at the same time. My hats off to them to pull in this type of class with so little time. I feel so good about the future at Nebraska with Scott Frost at the helm. The more that comes out the more work I think we all realize is needed to get things back on track here, but I'm confident he'll eventually get it headed in the right direction. How can he not?! The guy just radiates confidence, calmness, and greatness.

    The cryptic post is killing me................who?
  6. I can confirm that a partial torn quad muscle or quad tendon is extremely painful.......there goes leg day for several weeks! :(

      @ZRod I was doing lunges towards the end of my leg day. It was a light leg day, but high reps, 16-20, and it was only body weight lunges. So I'm guessing I taxed my legs pretty good throughout the workout and the stretch of the lunge pushed it over the edge.

      Yuck... Never pulled a quad, but I can only imagine it sucks as much or more than a back or hammy. Thank God it was body weight! Can you imagine if you had been under a bar or sled?

      No, I would've probably collapsed and it would've been way worse. 

  7. Can't knock the kid for that decision. Thanks for everything Zack, good luck on your next journey in life.
  8. Duval's conditioning starts Monday. UCF players share.

    Obviously we all know that strength and conditioning has been an issue for some time now so that had to change at some point. It sounds like the coaches did assessments and tailored it down some for the players. I don't think there was any malice intent here to injure the players or cause these issues and we know this was something completely unforeseen based on the coaches comments on this situation. There is a fine line to walk here between working the players just hard enough or overworking them and this proves that. My guess is that won't happen again and this program will make the players much stronger in the long run. Maybe these two did some other exercises they weren't supposed to do and the coaches were unaware of that or maybe they worked harder than the coaches thought they were going to. Regardless, lessons to be learned for sure here so this doesn't happen again.
  9. Scott Frost gets it

    I'm not afraid to admit my eyes got watery when we hired him because the fit is just amazing. Great to see him doing stuff like this during his busy schedule.
  10. Duval's conditioning starts Monday. UCF players share.

    I can't wait to hear what the players think of the work that is headed their way. Playtime is over, time to grind and climb up that mountain to get back to where we belong.
  11. Noah Vedral Transferring to Nebraska

    My guess is Frost will remind them that he gave them a magical season and they will work this out in the end. Welcome to Nebraska Noah!
  12. Home Brew

    I've had moonshine from the store, but not from someone in the woods like on TV. The store stuff is harsh as hell! Not sure how anyone can drink that stuff!
  13. Headed to Lincoln tomorrow to meet up with some family. I told my wife I'd love to have the opportunity to do a workout in the Huskers weight room! #dream #justonetime

      Are you sure you're up for a Frost/Duval workout?

      Hell yes! I'd love to have that insight just once, I'm a workout junky so it would be nice to see where I'm at anyways. 

  14. Gross.......all SEC N.C. game............blah!

      Yeah but it’s like getting an extra 4 hours on your life. I’m not gonna watch it on principle.

  15. Peach Bowl Discussion Thread
