  1. Looking for a good receiver for under $500 that’s 7.2. Deciding between the Sony STRDH770 or Yamaha RX-V583B. Anyone have other options to look at?

      Don't know much about the choices you mentioned, but we've had Onkyo's in the past and would buy again.

      Thanks.....dilly dilly

  2. Thinking about getting a Bose Soundtouch 300 w/ the Bose Acustimass 300? Or should I update my receiver and get a all new subwoofer, floor speakers and bookshelf speakers? Thoughts?

      If you want to go wireless then Sonos will be much better than Bose.  However, running wires behind walls isn't too complicated especially if you have a suspended ceiling.  If you ever want true surround sound, you will have to plug your rear speakers into an outlet in locations that you probably don't have outlets.  But if a soundbar and sub is all you want, then the Sonos playbar and sub is significantly better than Bose.  There are also much cheaper soundbars with wireless subs that will be better than Bose.

      My ceiling is a drywall finish so I’m not to excited about running wires and creating holes lol but I haven’t completely ruled that out. Whatever route I go, the products must be carried through Best Buy cause I work there part time and I get a discount.

      @Dewiz  Been traveling the last couple of days.  Here is my assessment; use as you wish.  Systems like SoNos are a closed ecosystem.  Currently, it supports 5.1, the current state of the art is 7.4.2+.  When Sonos decides to expand there is zero guarantee that the current systems won't be left behind., with wired you just run more wires and upgrade the receiver, and sell the old one on CL to offset the costs.


      If you are starting with a 5.1 system there is no need to knock holes in the ceiling.  Under carpet runs are pretty easy to do, this will save hassle down the line if you upgrade to ATMOs.  IMO long term effective leans on wired.

  6. Ran into a Florida fan that had no idea their volleyball team played tonight. She goes “I’d watch it if it was the football team.”  Hey lady your volleyball team is playing for the Natty

      Volleyball is easy to watch, easy to understand, and takes very good athleticism to play, not to mention a very entertaining sport. Many families grow up with daughter's playing the sport so they are familiar with it. It's also televised. So it's not hard to see why, in a state with no major pro sports, a successful and publicized team get a strong following. Especially when the other mainstay team has been sub par for almost a decade.

      How dare she not be a fairweather fan.

      Why couldn't anyone be excited for both NC vball game and a bowl game if their favorite program was in it? That is "JaySker" logic.

  7. Penn State got a gift on that absurd reversal on that challenge. Horrible call

      It's never over in volleyball. It's a momentum game and it can change in a hurry.

      Wait...so it never ends?  Ugggg...I better change my DVR settings!  :)

      Ha. There's been plenty of times I thought matches would never end. I've watched WAY more than my share of volleyball over the last 12 years.

      I can live with that.

      Welcome aboard, Mr. Martinez.  But does anyone have info on the injury?  I've started to sift through his thread buy don't really see any details.  What I know: right shoulder injury during Junior basketball that was originally supposed to be healed by the start of football but still caused him to miss his Senior season.  I'm assuming with scholarship offers and the AA game that people have seen him at camps or something.   Just looking for current video since the injury, thanks!

      @funhusker I understand it was a torn labrum that was repaired by one of the top ortho surgeons in the nation. He played his junior season with the injury. From what I've heard, he will be good to go and it should not be a concern going forward.

      Pre-lit fake. No mess, no hassle, no wildlife making its way into my house.

      My wife took the lights off our pre-lit fake tree.  There were sections that had gone out, and it was a pain in the ass to figure out the cause, so we just throw on our own lights.  it works so much better.

      who is keaton?  why do you have to stand for him/her/it/whatever?

      Type in the hash tag on twitter and you’ll get your answer. Pretty sad video especially if you have kids

  11. What is your favorite Husker play of all-time?

    This is also one of my favorite plays. Growing up Makovicka was my favorite Husker player and still is. Loved the way he played the game and I would try to imitate has play style when I played fullback
  12. Not sure who I have more, Jayskers or Iowa fans....

      One of my sons decided to be a Hawkeye fan this year and my wife bought him some shirts.  My wife went to Creighton and joked about giving my other son Creighton shirts for Christmas.


      This may be the last year I file my taxes as married...

      My daughter is the only onle I have left, and she is cheering the Husker girls on with me now.

      @funhusker "Decided" to be a Hawkeye fan? 

    4. funhusker


      He thought their t-shirts looked kind of like a Batman shirt; he's in 2nd grade.  The ass kicking that he witnessed in person didn't help matters any.


      I've warned him things are going to be different now and at the moment have him committing to cheering for the Huskers in Lincoln and Iowa in Iowa City (not that it makes things much better).


  13. Dumped my iPhone 8+ for the Google Pixel 2XL. This phone is legit fast, faster than the iPhone 8+ and the camera is the best on the market hands down.

      I traded in my Pixel XL for a Galaxy Note 8. No comparison. I’m sure the Pixel 2 is better than the original Pixel. But I love the Samsung Note.
