  1. Post-Practice Presser - August 14

    I am a college football fan, I truly only care about college football, with Nebraska being first and fore most. I don't really care who has NFL talent or doesn't. I want players that live to be a Nebraska player. Most of our great players will tell you the NFL was fantastic, but by far their most important and fondest memories are playing at memorial stadium. Frost gets that, and that is what he is trying to instill. Be great at Nebraska, you will get your chance at the NFL. Average at Nebraska, which we have seen for many years now, you might not get that chance.
  2. Grant Wistrom and Jason Peter talk to the team

    My gawd where have you been? Great to see you back. I was riding a Lake Perris a week or two ago and was wondering what had happened to ya!!!!!
  3. Navy SEAL Damian Jackson

    I say we wait and see what he is capable of. He is exactly what Coach Frost is looking for in every player. Reading about him, I don't think he has ever failed at anything he has put his mind to. Very intersted in how things turn out for him. He has the drive, the will and now the what we all think are the coaches. I hope he makes all of his goals, because if he does, that makes Nebraska that much closer to being what we all want.
  4. Pelini to OSU

    When pigs fly.
  5. I certainly don't disagree with that.
  6. My comments were not just about Moos or his hiring of Coach Frost, it is the fact that for the first time in many years, it appears that Nebraska is putting a real effor to return to what we once were. It took all aspects to get Coach Frost here, it wasn't just his love for Nebraska. Committments were made, that gave him proof we were serious. With out those actions, I really don't believe he would have come. He had a good thing going at UCF and he loved the kids. Some things are about more than money. He is and always has been a winner. He wanted every opportunity for that to continue. Nebraska proved they wanted to win. +
  7. I realize all are infatuated with the hire of Coach Frost, could not agree more. But this really goes back to the Chanellor and President hiring Bill Moos. It truly appears that Nebraska wants to be back, want to lead the Nation in every aspect. I think we finally have the direction changed and will see the results soon. Possibly better this year than I expect, but in the years to come, I finally feel like Nebraska will return to the upper tier of college football.
  8. Scott Frost: Look out for Nebraska in 2019

    I am hoping Coach Frost is the answer. If he isn't he certainly is digging himself a very deep hole to get out of. He is turning over the roster, to me that would indicate the talent or the effort was not here. It does sound like he has buy in from the team. I am expecting to see improvement, players wanting to play and win. Not buying any fan speak about how it could be great this coming year. Want to see it on the field before I believe it. I think we have heard the corner has been made many time over the last 20 years. I bought in a few times. I think it takes more than 9 months for a 4-8 team to become a 10-2 team or above. I see us at 6-6 or 7-5 and will be satisified with that level of improvement. If we are in every game, never quit and you see the coaching staff making the kids better. Not worried about 2019, the only thing that is important is 2018 now.
  9. I think if you really look at the teams listed below us, it is hard to justify them being better. Penn State is a blue blood without question. I might agree on FSU only because of their recent success. Nebraska has maintained a level for so long it is hard to drop them from that category. I really don't think Coach Frost has any bearing on it. But certainly hope he will in the future. This is one time I think the history of the program is weighed.
  10. Sounds like possibly Randy has seen the light, or gotten the help he needed. Would love to see him play to his full ability on every play. Truly believe he is making the right efforts to get back to football. Needs to be watched closely. Good luck Randy.
  11. Not up on population in Nebraska, but from my youth, towns the size of Dunbar or Humbolt were big towns compared to where I live now. As far away from the city as possible, I have two neighbors and they are a mile away, surrounded by Soboba Indian reservation and BLM land. Having what appears to be hard core gang bangers taking over your rural community is alarming. It started approximately two years ago. It does bring in an element that none of you would want near you.
  12. The police force is learning to deal with it. Do not have the man power to deal with it. It has become a cash business for most of them. They are the victums of crime from the people they sell it to. The percieved revenue is not going to the school districts. Many things are stated there Moraine. Homelessnes has risen, which I believe it has everywhere. But the comments made, were, they were there to work in the marijuana business. Again I don't care what anyone does. But I do care when it affects where I live and it definetely is. We have had several murders in the Hemet/San Jacinto/Banning/Beaumont areas over the last few months. The reports are that they are gang related. I would suggest you look at Brentwood, New York and see what MS 13 is all about. For me, in honesty I find it hard to believe they are in charge of the area near me. But we are researching it. Mexican Maffia gang in San Jacinto seems more likely. But my IT manager, is hispanic, born in Brawley. He says that the Mexican cartel could/would do things this way.
  13. I would ask what is ridiculous? What was written in USAToday? Or possibly you misread or I gave a bad discription of what is happening in my community. What I stated is exactly what is happening here. The growers are destroying our water district. Designed for a community of less than 200 many, many years ago. In the last two years they have developed over 6 large grow areas. Supposedly over 6000 plants, requiring a minimun of 5 gallons a day per plant. (No idea if that is the amount, but have been told that several times. These are indoor and outdoor sites, which are illegal in the county, the state and the United States. The water district has been battling them for over 2 years. In our little community and its water district, votes are counted by size of property. I have 20 acres, but most have 1or 2 acres. I get 20 votes on water.. 1 vote per acre. The growers came in and bought mountain top property valued at pennies, but in the hundreds of acres size. As I understand it they look for ravines to grow the plants under camoflauge covers. But some actually grow right in town now. They control the district. We tried to raise their cost as being commercial property, which it is, they aren't giving it away. But their group voted it down. One good thing is that the Sheriffs department did shut one site down near Pine Cove, about 12 miles away. Personally I don't care what people do. You want to smoke it have it, but the affects of it are far reaching.
  14. https://www.nccpsafety.org/assets/files/library/Legalized_Marijuana_Practical_Guide_for_Law_Enforcement.pdf Your local police force does not agree with you. Nor does the city of Golden. I would guess there are more.
  15. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2017/08/07/marijuana-devastated-colorado-dont-legalize-nationally-jeff-hunt-column/536010001/ This is exactly what I hear from friends that live in Colorado. From Denver to Durango. I mentioned my remote mountain village was seeing the results of growers awhile back. It is illegal in Riverside County to grow more than 6 plants per person in a household. Yet we have farms with over 1000 plants less than two miles from my home. With no grow permits. The Riverside County Sheriff will not do anything about it. We have been told recently that MS13 controls the area. Which seeing some of the people drive thru, sounds possible. I live in the mountains, 100 miles from LA, but daily on dirt roads I see hispanic gentlemen with their heads fully tattooed, glaring at me for driving down a road that I have maintained for 30 years. My wife and I no longer feel safe in our home. They did not move here or work here before the grow fields came. Be careful of what you endorse, it may just bite you in the end. I have been told by a medical person, that Colorado is now leading the Nation in birth defects, mentally disabled births. I do not have a link for this, but may be able to obtain it in a few days. I really think most of you live in a very sheltered world. Yea Nebraska has some bad areas, East Omaha, Carter Lake and North Omaha, I know I grew up in that area. I knew what bad guys were, but what is headed our way is going to dwarf the past. Trust me every part of weed is not groovey.
