      @ZRod I think about 100% of the players last year would've said they wanted to win. The big difference is now they are putting in the required work to actually win and are being put in a position where they know they can win and they have confidence in the coaches. It's a huge difference over just saying the words and going through the motions but knowing deep down that things are very wrong.

      If you guys yave a chance to listen to the huskeronline videos on youtube I recommend it.  Farmer steals the show in my opinion and you can see the change in attitude.

      You would think they'd pay for some kind of music service so that they don't get pinged for this kind of thing. If somebody wrote a book called 'Common Sense for Marketing Departments'... that would be in Chapter 1.

      Heh, that's a coincidence.  I was just thinking about the Code Talkers yesterday.  I was reading about the Hopi fifth world prophecy, and started wondering whether the Hopi language is more indecipherable than Navajo language.  The Hopi and Navajo tribes live in about the same area, in NW Arizona near four corners.

      Knappic it will be interesting to see if Chris Froome rides this year.  There are rumors that he could be banned because of a disagreement about the asthma drug he uses.  He has a known asthma condition so I don't know why all of a sudden he gets banned?  

       

    3. knapplc

      @ladyhawke

       

      Even with a known condition he has to get an exemption and it looks like he never got one. There's two reasons for that - his condition hasn't been shown to be so debilitating that he needs the meds or he & his team have been lax and just not gotten it.  I can't imagine the latter being the case with a world-class cyclist/cycling team.  My guess is he's mildly asthmatic and is using the meds as a permissible PDE. Hate to say that, but if this is your job & your life, you get that certificate. Right?

    4. ladyhawke

      ladyhawke

      I agree Knappic.  The sport of cycling, unfortunately, has been tainted for a long time.  I think most people knew Lance was doping but he still had to train and he still had to know how to handle the bike. He deserved what he got especially since he lied for so long (I especially feel sorry for his son. The kid defended his Dad to the end then had to find out Lance lied. So sad. ). Lance brought such a heightened awareness to cycling and it would have been so great to have his take of the Tour along with Phil, Paul and Bobke.  (Lance does have a podcast during the tour. )

      That Denny's was there at least through the mid-late 90s, as I went there at least once as a UNL student.  I think it's the location of the current Embassy Suites.

      I thought the Old Girl was redone just a couple years ago? I'm fairly sure it was done while Riley was here.

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      I'm pretty sure that's right @TonyStalloni. We toured the facilities a couple months ago and I'm certain they said the stadium and all the practice fields were redone while Riley was there. We didn't actually go outside on those two practice fields but we were in the indoor and outdoor on the main stadium turf and to my untrained eye they all seemed brand new. The outdoor grass field was the only one that looked a little strained but it was March after all.

      Was it that recent? Shows you what I know. I remember it was changed in 1984 and 1992 but I can't remember the most recent one.
