      An ESPN stats guy says if the season ended right now, Nebraska would be in a play-in game. Look for the 12 seed in the bottom right bracket.

  4. Friend just tried to get Spring Game tickets at "best available" and got an error message.

     

    May have already sold out? If so, it's the first ever sellout of the Spring Game.

      They've only been on sale for half an hour...

      Officially sold out, less than an hour after they were available to the general public.

       

       

  5. Had to try three times to get my Spring Game ticket order to go through. Lost good seats in West Stadium twice, ended up two rows back from where our season tickets are in Section 35.

     

    Not a great day for the UNL ticket website.

      I'm trying to call the ticket office about getting basketball tickets for tonights game at Minny (angling to see if I can get those money seats behind the bench).  Either get a busy tone or put on hold only to be hung up on 15 minutes later due to "heavy call volume"

    3. knapplc

      There's almost no chance of calling the ticket office today.

    4. Red Five

      I have realized that.  I started calling at 8 am when it opened and was put on hold even then.  I didn't know it was spring ticket day.  It was on my "to-do list" yesterday, but I got busy.  Off to stub hub I guess...

  6. I don't get the sudden resurgence in interest in the Natalie Wood case. She died over 30 years ago. What new evidence could they have found?

      In 2012 Woods’ cause of death was changed from accidental to undetermined triggering a cold case team being assigned. The team is trying to get some publicity generated and maybe someone will come forward with information- like Duvall or Walken sharing information with confidants, that may help solve the case. Neither Duvall or Walken will talk to investigators, although it was stated that Walken did share some pertainent information that will remain confidential for now and he is not considered a suspect

  7. Nebraska residents, have you ever heard of Unadilla Bil?

  8. I have to buy bourbon as an ingredient for a recipe. Can anyone recommend a decent brand? Preferably one I can get at a local grocery store.

      Jim Beam should be good. It's got a nice spicy note and isn't terribly sweet. I used it for a bourbon sauce on burgers and in marinade for pulled pork. It worked really well.

      I went with Maker's Mark.  They had a smallish bottle for about $19. I only need a cup.

       

      It smells awful. I think bourbon consumption is mostly based on a dare.

    4. ZRod

      ZRod

      Maker's Mark is pretty good. All whiskeys smell funky, but bourbon taste the best. I could never drink it neat but in an old fashion, Manhattan, or just some ice it's good stuff.

  9. So, uh... Amy Williams is doing kinda well these days. WBB is up on Iowa 68-34 midway through the third quarter.  From 8-22 last year to 16-6 so far this year.

      Early 80’s Motley C definitely not a hairband, at least musically. Late 80’s MC def a hair band.

      Did someone really say that Pantera was a hair band? Lol..... I know they started technically as a Glam Metal band that leaned closer to Thrash Metal than Hair or Glam.... but that changed pretty quick once Anselmo joined the band

      That would be more believable if I'd ever heard that name before.

  17. Walmart is raising their base wage to $11/hour and offering paid parental leave. Almost zero large American employers offer this kind of leave. Hopefully other employers follow suit and this becomes the norm in America - we're the only major industrialized nation that doesn't offer this. American employers seem to punish families for having children. I always thought it was super weird.

      knapplc, maybe start a thread about paid paternal/maternal leave. I think it is an interesting discussion to be had. I don't know how I feel about paid time off that isn't earned and saved.

    3. StPaulHusker

      StPaulHusker

      People need to realize that large corporations do not give a rats ass about their employees and anything they do positive isn't for their employees benefit and there is a negative side to appease shareholders.

      So I talked to my wife about this last night, she still has friends stuck at the mart, said that yes minimum is increased but everyone's hours are being slashed and paid time off has been completely redone so that it is very difficult to accrue and even more difficult to use and impossible to use without threats and being yelled at.

      Section 3. CLASS A Unsporting Technical Infractions

      1. Disrespectfully addressing an official or gesturing in such a manner as to indicate resentment.

      2. Using profanity or vulgarity; taunting, baiting or ridiculing another player or bench personnel; or pointing a finger at or making obscene gestures toward another player or bench personnel.

      3. Inciting undesirable crowd reaction.

      4. Contacting an opponent, while the ball is dead, in an unnecessary, unacceptable and excessive manner.

      10. Disrespectfully contacting an official

      @funhusker yep, that is the only way to avoid it.  Literally everyone who plays basketball as a human gets a taunting technical in every game they play in.  So there's really no other way around it.

  20. Why not? Lots of other schools claim disputed national championships. UCF shouldn't be any different.

      UCF’s claim this year is only slightly more ridiculous than Michigan’s in 1997. 

       

      The national championship should be settled on the field. Major conference champions should be in the playoff. So should all undefeateds whose schedules aren’t a complete joke. At the end of the day, UCF will have as good of a claim as whoever wins the game.

    3. Comfortably Numb

      Comfortably Numb

      Actually UCF’s claim is a whole lot less ridiculous than 97 Michigan’s. Nebraska would’ve completely murderized Meatchicken. Not so sure UCF wouldn’t have held their own against about anybody this year.

      @knapplc I know you mean well. But when your best win is Purdue...well, some things are best left unsaid.

       

      @ZRod I don’t think Lee had a future in Frost’s offense, to be honest. But I do agree he needs more time. Too bad he couldn’t transfer again. :(

    3. ColoradoHusk

      ColoradoHusk

      I don't get the thought that Lee "needs more experience", the guy is 23 years old, has been in college for 5 years, and started for 3 seasons.  He's not going to "get better" with another year of college football.

    4. VectorVictor

      VectorVictor

      @ColoradoHusk it stems from the fact that he's never really had a College coach that has been able to help him out, nor has he had a competent O-Line *and* WR corps to play with, so we really don't know his potential and if he's NFL material or not. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

       

       

      I would suggest that Lee may actually do well in the CFL and could then translate that success into a NFL gig...that may be a more favorable option if the NFL doesn't pick him up.

  22. Last year Husker Women's Basketball went 8-22. It's not even January and they've already matched last year's win total and sit at 8-3. Amy Williams is getting it turned around.

      We lost our best two players in the Yori/Williams transition, Natalie Romeo and Jess Shepard.

       

      Williams signed a pretty decent recruiting class this past year, and she should be able to get more good players in as her system shows it can win.
