  1. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    Enlighten me instead of bringing nothing to the conversation.
  2. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    I understand your argument, and I have stated why I disagree. It’s clear you either don’t care or aren’t listening to what I say so let’s leave it at that.
  3. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    Its not just his shoulder recovery, it’s multi faceted. There are multiple reasons to let him redshirt, I don’t believe there is any real benefit to starting him this year and I don’t get why you and others feel the rush. Let him get another year to learn the system, heal, grow, and still have 4 years to start. Gebbia will be a pretty damned good QB in this system and Bunch looks surprisingly good. There is no immediate need to start Martinez.
  4. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    I respectfully disagree with this opinion and feel the risks outweigh the rewards in a season most have written off.
  5. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    Part of my desire to let Martinez redshirt is amplified by his coming off a shoulder injury. There is no immediate need for him at QB, why not let him redshirt?
  6. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    No doubt Martinez is the best fit as Frost QB, but I think with the schedule we have this year it makes sense to redshirt him unless there is a major injury to Gebbia.

    I think Nebraska has a real shot at winning this game.

      Congrats!  Make sure you boo someone.  Anyone.

      I plan on booing the obviously horrible first pick the Bears are going to make, before ultimately coming to love the pick in a few months.

  10. Can't Miss Any Games This Year

    I'm in Austin and I can see every game. Hulu Live streaming for BTN and Fox Sports. Antenna for any ABC games. When I first moved here and BTN wasn't included in my cable I just went to a local bar. I'm sure there is a Nebraska watch site near you.

    Yes. Something that requires a 2/3 vote of both the House and Senate plus it must be ratified by 3/4 of the States. Saying the only difference is that one is a right guaranteed by the Constitution is a huge difference. This is something that should inform our discussion. Due to our Constitution, we can't enable European style strict gun control. That's when you have politicians claim there isn't anything we can do. But there is, and we should focus our efforts on trying to get measures that are both effective and constitutional. Arguing for anything more would be like trying to make the sky green.

    No, you do not have a right to drive a car. If you have the means, and are qualified you can have the privilege but no one is born with the right to drive a car. Rights are inherent and irrevocable (to an extent). The US government could make it illegal to own/drive cars tomorrow and there is nothing we could do, other than try to replace them in the next election. It could not do the same with firearms. That is the difference.

    I'm not a lawyer, but we've spent the last ~100 years trying to figure that out. Trust me, no one ignores those words. The current interpretation, as of DV v Heller, is that the 2nd Amendment has horrible grammar and that there are two parts: A well regulated militia is necessary to ensure a free state The rights of citizens to keep and bear arms (own/use) shall not be infringed Essentially, in order to create a well regulated militia, you need people that can own/use weapons. The militia can be regulated, but the rights cannot be infringed.

    I don't disagree with the sentiment, but there is a reason so many people throw up their hands and say "There is nothing we can do". Every American is born with the inherent right to own and use firearms. No one is born with the right to drive a car. The government can put as many restrictions on it as they want and there would be no real debate over whether we could do it. Many of the changes we'd like to see will require amending the Constitution, something that is really f'ing hard to do.
