  1. WR Joshua Moore [Nebraska Commit]

    That is cool. The story. The graphic. Really cool.
  2. What Did We Learn - Wisconsin Edition

    btw, not sure if it's been mentioned, but Stanley Morgan is a baller. Dude makes tough catches, runs hard after the catch and clearly takes pride in his blocking.
  3. What Did We Learn - Wisconsin Edition

    I learned that I'm more confident going against Ohio St now than I was last week.
  4. Over/Under - Bye Week/Mid-Season Edition

    Really? Who besides Gifford in game 1 has been ejected this year?
  5. Over/Under - Bye Week/Mid-Season Edition

    Over Number of targeting ejections 1.5
  6. I get what you're saying, but it's hard to take your argument too seriously when you start by making a joke about women's underwear. I'm not advocating for the government to pay for endless programs. I'm not disagreeing that some get a little too accustomed to playing the victim (which Nebraska fans are pretty good at..."ESPN hates us...Herbstreit hates us..."). What I'm saying is that a fair number of people, especially in central city/lower income housing areas, don't feel like the government (elected officials, police, school districts, etc.) has their best interests in mind. Often times they're right, and other times they're not. But instead of just saying "suck it up and deal with it" to a group of people, maybe it would be more productive to listen to what they're dealing with, why there is so much anger. Heck, both sides of a discussion might learn something and improve from it. It's like teaching a kid to ride a bike. It only works to push them and take training wheels off when the kid knows you'll be there for them if/when or before they fall. Idealistic? Maybe. People claim that our country was founded based on a lot of things. Idealism was right up there.
  7. From the ESPN article, two University Regents who, at the very least, contradict themselves pretty plainly. These quotes are far more disgraceful and disrespectful than anything the three players did or said. And they're supposed to be the "educated adults." Ugh. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/17655037/two-regents-gov-pete-ricketts-criticize-nebraska-cornhuskers-kneeling
  8. All people from all walks of life need to be and feel supported. When there is none or they don't feel it, they tend to act out in order to get attention, love and support. That's how I'd explain Charlotte.
  9. Then he needs to put on his Big Boy pants and quit whining when it comes to paying the cost of saying what you think needs to be said. "Free Speech" isn't free. Never has been, never will be. Many hundreds of thousands paid a bigger price for it than some mean Tweets in both this country and others. I'll tell you what: I'll buy Michael Rose-Ivey a ticket to the upcoming movie "Hacksaw Ridge" so he can compare his woes to that of Deloss Dodd's service in the U.S. Army during WWII, since they both made a stand and a statement. I will have to say, Dodd's was at least original. I didn't read any of MRI's words as complaining. Seems like he's just pointing out what's been said.
  10. Keith Williams presser

    this was a really good post.
  11. 4 well respected leaders worked together on this decision. They know way more than any of us regarding this situation. I'm good with what they did.
  12. Zach Sterup suspended for PED's

    Couldn't almost every program in America minus Miami, and maybe Ole Miss recently, could say this?
  13. WR Coach Keith Williams Arrested on Suspicion of DUI

    You think he's only driven drunk once since the last DUI?objection: speculation. I'm not a lawyer, but.... Seems like a weird question
