  1. No squirrels were harmed during the Scott Frost vs. The World competition. But right now the Finals are going on in the Crib and you should go vote.

      Maybe no harm to the squirrls but not so sure us nuts are left a little less  wise. Had to go with home boy, even though Matt C would be a solid option.

      Hey, Takoda. Nice to see you.

    Sucks when people get offended so easily, doesn't it?
  4. Scott Frost vs. The World

    The prelims are over and we have a winner. Matt Campbell, Iowa State head coach, has defeated all challengers and wins the right to tempt fate and the gods in a one-on-one showdown against Scott Frost. Here's a list of coaches Campbell vanquished to claim the World's crown: Kyle Wittingham Dana Holgersen Dave Doeren Brent Venables Justin Wilcox Gus Malzahn Chip Kelly Matt Campbell, heir to the soup fortune, stands alone atop a hill of slain. Now, clipboard in hand, he turns his gaze upon the highest of mountains. He's going to climb it, even though it's cold up there. Some might even say... Frosty.

    Gotta give credit to @olddominionhusker who had the same idea, but wrote it faster than I did. Great minds think alike, which is a phrase I just made up.
  6. I don't think even LeeAnn Tweeden describes it as an "egregious abuse." She describes it as wrong, and she (rightly) spoke up about it. Certainly Mr. Franken should suffer consequences for this, we're all in agreement on that. What those consequences should be is the question, and it's not unreasonable to gauge each situation separately and figure out the best way to move forward from it. Al Franken does not represent all men in power, and should not suffer the consequences of all abuses of all men in power. He should pay for what he has done in a reasonable way. If that means getting counseling, a censure from the Senate, paying a monetary penalty, or losing his job, fine, whatever's reasonable. But let's not jump to Z when we're at A.
  7. You're taking away his career. That is absolutely a nuclear option. There's nothing measured or reasonable about that, it's just 0-100 immediately. The consequence for every kind of unwanted sexual advance cannot be that you lose your job. We have to have measured, reasonable responses to these things. Manipulating a stage scene so that you kiss an actress and take a sophomoric picture where you pantomime grabbing her breasts should not be treated the same as rape or pedophilia. That smacks of McCarthyism, and is another wrong, not a redress. Let's not make the mistake of treating every instance of unwanted behavior the same. Let's continue to reason our way through these things. We can be reasonable and still respect and provide protection for women.
  8. Forcing him to resign seems like the nuclear option. Why isn't there an option somewhere between "Force Him To Resign" and "Pretend This Never Happened?"

    None of this will be a problem when Trump gets done shutting down the EPA.
  10. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    A source tells me they've put these coaches into P5 programs: Bear Bryant Bill Snyder Darrell Royal Grant Teaff Vince Dooley Duffy Daugherty George O'Leary So there's precedent.
  11. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    I'm quite certain he was joking, in response to another poster who has been making a lot of unsubstantiated claims. I may be wrong, but I don't think anyone in this thread is taking it very seriously.
  12. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    So, basically, you have the same opinion that 75% of other Husker fans have. You got a source for that?
  13. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    Which is why national writers, whose job it is to get people to read their stuff (and not necessarily to be accurate) are good at looking at what fans want and regurgitating that. Hence these vague, unsourced statements by Russo & Rittenberg that has the undiscerning all in a flutter, but which contain zero factual information.
