  1. A man you can bait with a Tweet

    The most frustrating part of this tweet about airplane safety is that it's a good use of twitter but he can't resist patting himself on the back for something he had no part of. A tweet congratulating the industry on another year with zero fatalities is a perfect use of twitter. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/948195478428102657
  2. End of Net Neutrality

    Government regulations are bad. Net neutrality is a regulation. Therefore net neutrality is bad. That's essentially the argument. Then they talk about the free market as if the last mile into our homes isn't a billion dollar problem that even Google/Alphabet with their VERY deep pockets hasn't had trouble with.
  3. Trump's America

    As I think more about this particular interview it makes me wonder if we're even going to get debates in the run-up to the 2020 elections. I can see Trump's handlers convincing him to not do the debates because he won't have anything to gain.
  4. Trump's America

    It's hard to figure out which thread to put this in and I'd offer some highlights of the article but the whole thing is just crazy. I won't be surprised if this is one of Trump's last interviews. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/12/29/16829806/trump-interview-new-york-times
  5. A man you can bait with a Tweet

    It's also continuing the push that Fox News is where we should be getting out news.
  6. A man you can bait with a Tweet

    I hope I don't ever get used to the idea of a POTUS tweeting things like this. It's so weird and unbecoming of the highest elected person in the country.
  7. 2018 Betting Props Are Out

    My initial reaction is 7 wins but I wouldn't put any money down until we find out who is going to play QB.
  8. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    You need to make sure you get a VISA gift card that can be for international use. https://www.bovada.lv/help/deposit-methods
  9. Non-Scott Frost Coaching Options

    The fanbase will rightfully be very upset if Moos chooses someone that was either recently fired like McElwain/Jones or on their way out like Bielema/Sumlin/Riley. It's got to be someone moving up the coaching ranks. Maybe an OC or DC doesn't get it done but they have to try.
  10. What did we learn?....Minnesota

    Some of those early Pelini teams definitely showed heart. The championship game versus TX for sure; that defense gave it their all.
  11. The Republican Utopia

    I guarantee you that a whole lot of men in Alabama who like those 'Rules for dating my daughter' emails/posts are going to vote for a guy that should have his own rule on the list.
  12. Should we be surprised?

    'Extreme vetting' is pretty vague but I'd like to think it would have turned up the domestic assault conviction that the AF neglected to report. It seems like a pretty reasonable question to ask.
  13. Will Tanner Lee be a Pro Quarterback?

    He will end up on the practice squad for a couple different teams before giving it up.
  14. Call Your Shot - Rutgers

    Tanner Lee does everything he can to help Rutgers get the W but the Nebraska D comes up big in the 4th with a turnover to win the game for us. It's an ugly game but a win.
  15. Could Riley Survive this season? (Poll)

    I voted 8-4 but if they can play OSU, PSU, and Wisconsin to close respectable losses I could see 7-5 being good enough. It's easy to forget that we're breaking in a new DC with a new defensive scheme and a new (to us) quarterback. This was always going to be a bit of a rebuilding year and it takes time to get everyone on the same page.
