  1. Recruiting Tangent Thread - StPaulHusker Edition

    He's insulting an 18 year old kid he doesn't know and calling him close-minded. If we only recruited kids who wanted to be huskers, we'd have a pretty lousy roster talent-wise. The goal of recruiting is to convince kids who don't want to be huskers to change their minds. I don't think that's why you keep asking that.
  2. Recruiting Tangent Thread - StPaulHusker Edition

    Your 12 posts about him in the last 24 hours don't really have me convinced that you don't care ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  3. Climate effects

    2006 Oklahoma Big XII Championship Game 2009 Missouri 2013 Penn State 2015 Illinois that's all I can remember. As far as this whole, "these kids are dumb and they shouldn't care bc the NFL is sometimes cold and we have tradition" argument, give it a rest. Most kids, even if they hope for the NFL, have an underlying understanding that the chances are they won't make it. Even if they do think they will, is the mindset of, "Well, I guess someday down the road I might have to deal with that bad weather stuff 3-4 times a year, but there's not really any need for me to subject myself to it over the next 4-5 years while I have the time of my life in college" not understandable and reasonable, especially for a 17-18 year old kid? If I didn't grow up with an allegiance to a program, I'd probably much rather go to a school in a warm-weather area, especially if it's by the beach and/or a big party school. I've also lived in the south, and moved back up north in January and can testify that once you're used to it, the jarring miserableness of leaving warmer climates for colder ones is no joke.
  4. Assistants Announced

    cool thread guys im glad i read about all of this while wondering about our assistant coaches
  5. Plains states are a subsection of the midwest.
  6. ***2018 Recruiting***

    A quarterback good enough to start as a true freshman in the Big XII and eventually win the Heisman only got three offers to lowly schools. That is a very literal and proper use of 'under-recruited'.
  7. Extremely impressed with the new staff on the recruiting trail

    I think that most people in here realize that that statement was not necessarily intended to be considered completely factual and demonstrably true, and was more of a general expression of a relative truth that generally speaking, teams that recruit in the 30's or worse very rarely win conference championships.
  8. How do you get to even if one scale has been favored to extra for 300+ years and we don't want to favor to the other side in our pursuit?
  9. It's great that all of these highly educated feminists and social psychologists can extrapolate the fine-toothed nuance of what it does and doesn't mean, but most people take things like, "Believe women" at face value. I get it though - "We need to adjust our posture to how we immediately receive claims of abuse on behalf of women because of their historically silenced and dismissed voices, and the rare occurrence of actual false accusations" doesn't work as well as a hashtag or a rallying cry. I guess I personally don't feel a burden to believe anything in particular about most situations very detached from my life. If I was in a professional field that behooved me to it would be different, and if someone I have a relationship with is assaulted or is sharing their experience (my best friend was recently raped, for example, and the DA tragically didn't take the case due to lack of evidence), then I absolutely find it very easy to believe them, but otherwise I mostly just observe and listen. The question I have for you zoogs is, like with what I was saying to knapp about getting to a place of equality meaning tipping the scales disproportionately the opposite direction -- are you comfortable with the micro collateral damage in pursuit of the macro progress? As evidenced in the NYT article, there are plenty of people who are okay with it (and also as evidenced by the article, there are plenty of people saying, 'believe all women', despite you personally not knowing of any ). As evidenced in this thread, there are plenty who aren't (knapp). What's your take?
  10. QB Adrian Martinez [Tennessee Commit]

    No, no it is not. Don't tweet croots - don't laugh at other otherwise funny tweets that people tweeted at croots either.
  11. There are plenty of people saying that.
  12. Sexism - It's a Real Thing

    But you're talking to BRB, not to a prevalent argument in the ethos of culture, so it's not at all unreasonable or even unexpected for him (and others) to perceive that being an attack or accusation towards him.
  13. I think you'd do well to understand that a lot of us (at least I'm assuming a lot of us, but definitely at least myself) still feel quite ignorant in some respects about these realities, and how we should respond to them, approach them, and deal with them. I didn't learn about any of this in school or from a textbook. I've never actually been told in my life, explicitly, about the concepts of consent or bodily autonomy or what is or isn't harassment, etc. I've learned everything I know through conversations like this one. My ignorance should not be a cause of stress for you, it should be an exciting opportunity to engage and bring me out of it.
