  1. Trump's America

    I am a card carrying Libertarian. I believe in the mantra "leave it alone if it isn't my business". This is my business, and it is unacceptable. I never post in here, it makes me sick to my stomach most of the time because (sorry if I offend you) none of you REALLY listen to the other, you just argue the same party talking points. It is regurgitation that I choose not to listen to. That all being said, I have a serious question for any of you that frequent this area and support Republican ideas and our President. How can you actually support this particular direction of your party and, in turn, our country? This is literally the only way Democrats will win an election is with this type of behavior. This last cycle proved that. They come off of a guy with a 60 some percent approval rating and lose to Donald f'ing Trump? What in the absolute hell? For their own survival you would think that GOP leaders would ostracize this man. But they can't, because both parties have moved so far away from the majority of how Americans think and believe that most moderates don't even vote. They have to "hold their base" and that is why we had two absolutely detestable candidates for our country's highest office. The majority of Americans are fiscally conservative and socially liberal, but the two major parties can't understand that. I know one that can...
  2. Pick your team

    This started at Osborne and 1995 Defense and then I went from there. I think T-Magic playing for TO would have been unbelievable and at $1 that is a steal. Plus $2 for Ahman Green? Are you kidding me. I can hardly believe that. That leaves me Kenny Bell at WR for $2 and he could block and be a deep threat. Osborne---$5 1995 Def--$5 Ahman----$2 Kenny B--$2 T-Magic---$1 Bigger question, which Offensive Line? I'd take 1994 OL and that would be the greatest team in history.
  3. Fall Camp Updates - Quarterbacks

    Wow, that is saying some big things about Tanner Lee. I don't know if I'm ready to say there is going to be a "good chance" he comes out. He would have to have an absolutely special season for that to happen. Man, that would be awesome. I just don't think I'm ready to say that without him ever taking a snap here.
  4. Predict the Huskers statistical leaders

    Lol, I completely brain farted that one. My first name is Tyler, so that is kind of sad...
  5. DE Micah Parsons

    What would be really cool is if we all pooled some money together and bought him a car on his visit. I bet that would leave a lasting impression Haha. Probation is a lasting impression.
  6. Predict the Huskers statistical leaders

    I changed my receptions to Spielman, I don't know why but I think he is going to have a big year
  7. Predict the Huskers statistical leaders

    I hope this isn't a repeat of a current thread, but thought it would be fun to really start talking some football. Who do you think is going to lead Nebraska in the three categories above? Rushing: I went with Bryant, but I really don't have a good guess right now. Receiving yards: Morgan Receptions: DPE Tackles: Weber I could only have 3 questions, so any other statistical predictions you may have please put that in your post. Edit: got it
  8. Kiffin Adding Castoffs to Bolster Roster

    Wow, I'm all for second chances but that is a lot of them on one team...
  9. Bo Pelini & Ma'Lik Richmond

    Yes. Rape is a felony. I recommend you read about the case. Wrong, he was tried and convicted as a juvenile. Only an adult can be classified as a felon. Maybe you should read about the Ohio Juvenile system in this .pdf I should have typed was he tried as an adult, and it was meant to be rhetorical. This is why this board pisses me off sometimes. I am not siding with the young man, or trying to defend Bo. I just question how, as a society, we can decide to shun a young man who did what he was asked to do by the State and yet still is going to be denied things like this. He screwed up, big time. It is a horrible thing he did. This is why juvenile offenders become lifetime criminals, this is why the cycle of crime and poverty persists, this is why there is such a struggle with getting young people to believe there is something else out there and they don't have to do what everyone else around them does. If every kid that commits crimes like this is treated like a criminal for the rest of their lives, no matter what they do, they will then look to a life of crime because they won't have another choice. Maybe football is too much, but acting like a student has been given a second chance because he is PAYING for college is just wrong. He is a consumer at that point. Rape is certainly a felony. How Ohio chooses to classify it for a juvenile, doesn't change that. And I don't see anyone saying the kid can't attend college to move on. They (myself included) don't think he should be able to obtain any additional privileges that comes with being a part of a football team. Even though he is a walk on, he will have some collegiate advantages that the average student wouldn't get. And that shouldn't be the case. It literally does. To your second point, I agree. I don't know about how that should look. I guess the blame should fall on Bo here, as he wasn't really trying to play and was trying to live his life. Maybe the kid hasn't learned and all of this is for naught. I don't know. I just don't want a bunch of other people that also don't know much about the kid or the situation making blanket statements about what should happen in all cases, because all cases aren't the same and all rehabilitations are not the same.
  10. A question about sending film to college coaches.

    Yep, it is okay. Coaches don't care if it is a blast or not. Now, most won't watch it and you are better off finding smaller schools (they will watch) or emails to GA's. This is general and I am speaking with FCS and D2 schools in mind. Send it, over and over. They will look at it. Also, if you can, include GPA and test scores. I would send it, those levels are always looking for talented players. Teach is right, try to include the scores.
  11. Don't mean to be that guy, but he shot 14 percent form 3 and 40 percent from the line in 2017. He had way better stats the year before but still only 30 percent from deep. Gonna need to work on shooting as he can attack the basket well. Agree with the adjustment to the right hand as he loves to use his left. http://www.fiba.com/pages/eng/fa/player/p/pid/122080/pid2//sid/12929/tid/300/tid2//_/2017_FIBA_U20_European_Championship_Division_A/index.html Well, sh#t. That's what you get when you don't get fresh film and go by highlights!! That's why college coaches ask for game tape, lol. He won't be able to get to the cup like that here without both hands and if he really shoots it like that, I guess I don't get it. Plus, I question his defense. Not quick laterally and got lucky on every steal. The passes were awful. I assume we are going to redshirt him this year, so I would continue to tell him to take it to the hoop. He is good at that and it will take him time to adjust to getting to the cup at the D1 level. Then you get him shooting from specific three point spots and his outside shooting improves. Once he gets adjusted like Webster did I think he will be fine, but we need to get him adjusted faster than Tai did. Defense needs work so hopefully we make him a better defender and once he is comfortable, he will be faster and quicker in games. The speed of the game is gonna be a little too much for him in my opinion so a redshirt year is likely. There is no doubt he redshirts, I do have serious doubts he ever really contributes. He doesn't look like he would be a great high school player here in Omaha, to be honest. I would guess he was signed for practice reasons.

    Or just don't tweet at Bookie with it, leave his name out of it. Dumbs
  13. Bo Pelini & Ma'Lik Richmond

    The University has a service, the young man is paying for it. That is what I mean by consumer. How is that giving the man a second chance? You can't give a second chance and take his money also. If he can be on campus, why can't he participate in any other activity? Obviously it does not violate any of his legal proceedings. Bo probably shouldn't have opened this can of worms, that much I agree with. I just hope the kid finishes school and makes a positive impact on society, I wonder what his major is? Hopefully something where he can help victims, that is, if he is truly sorry for what he did.
