  1. Best Win of the Pelini Era

    To me, there are three answers that are better than the rest. Either 2010 Oklahoma State, 2010 Missouri or 2011 Michigan State. Personally, I'd go with 2010 Oklahoma State. Oklahoma State went 11-2 that year and finished ranked 10th and 13th in the polls. Oklahoma State's only other loss that year was to Oklahoma. Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon may not have been good in the NFL, but they were a dynamite tandem in college football. The Cowboys didn't have a great defense, but like most Big 12 teams, they had a loaded offense. They were even better the next year, so that's probably one reason why I've always been fond of that win.

  4. Best Win of the Riley Era

    Michigan State in 2015 is the correct answer. But the big-picture correct answer is what Dilly dilly said. The only thing that matters is that Nebraska finally has a head coach that 1: Wants to be there 2: The fans want to be there 3: All the fans agree that they want him there and aren't secretly wishing for a previous coach that was fired
  5. You're fine. It isn't clickbait if it tells you what happened in the headline. Clickbait would be if it said, "Bill Moos made a big mistake at Washington State and you'll never believe what it was". Or something similar to those ads you see at the bottom of websites. A few clickbait titles from the bottom of Athlon Sports: Awkward Olympic Wardrobe Malfunctions You Can't Unsee; The Truth About Danika Patrick and Aaron Rodgers' Relationship; Stars You May Not Know Passed Away; The Disturbing Untold Truth of Aaron Andrews
  6. This quote, from the article not from Landlord, seems very odd to me. Fiscal responsibility in athletics? Nothing about collegiate athletics has ever been fiscally responsible. There's a reason that for decades it could be used as a tax write off. And in terms of "supporting a culture of compliance," as long as they aren't covering up felonies, I don't really care.
  7. Most intriguing bowl matchup

    Part of me hopes Nebraska never plays Texas again. They just seem cursed when they play the Longhorns. Playing Oklahoma would be fun.
  8. RB Jouvensly Bazile

    Agreed. I want him for his name alone. Any skills he has are just the cherry on top.
  9. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    The one that leads Nebraska to the most wins in the fall.
  10. No more Pound the Rock

    Apparently it was 2006. I remember they had an awful rushing offense in 2005. I kind of remember them saying in the offseason they had to get better and emphasize running the ball. I remember them having a solid run offense in 2006. Zero recollection of the boulder and "pound the rock" though.
  11. No more Pound the Rock

    Like all of us, I'm a die-hard Nebraska fan. That's why were anonymously posting on a message board explicitly made for Nebraska football. I don't have an eidetic or photographic memory, but I'm in my 30s and I remember a LOT of Nebraska stuff over the past 20-25 years. All this is to say I have absolutely zero memory of recollection of Callahan putting a boulder in and trying to make a tradition out of it. Clearly it didn't work long-term. TL;DR: Me no remember any of this stuff
  12. Spring Game Rosters

    Also, it appears that Damian Jackson is a defensive lineman on the Red team but a long snapper on the White team. That's interesting.
  13. Spring Game Rosters

    So, it looks like the Red team is mostly the probable starters then.
  14. Athletes at the Skill Positions

    Honestly, I don't really care which sport as long as they are playing something else. Wrestling, basketball, track, baseball, or whatever is fine with me.
