  1. Straight Talk. $45/mo for unlimited everything and you can generally transfer your number or plan over to any phone. I lived in Sioux City a couple years and had great service with Straight Talk. I believe they also feed off of Verizon towers
  2. CB Deommodore Lenoir [Oregon - Signed LOI]

    If that's the case, it's nice to know we're imposing a 3 scholarship sanction on ourselves. Aren't a lot of people thinking they are trying to save up a few more for next year? I could be wrong on that. Yes and no. I think we would have used up all of our schollys this cycle if the players all had wanted N, so in that regard its disappointing. But on the other hand, I think the plan was to save the 5th WR spot that we had originally wanted, and also DW seems very willing to only take one DB this cycle whereas that wasn't the original plan before he was here. This has me confused. Wouldnt it be smart to sign up to the limit and then use your +3 to cycle as many players as possible through the football program? Whats the benefit of saving scholarships when inevitably we will have transfers/dismissals this spring/summer and still need to sign another 20 players next year. Whens the last time we actually filled up an entire recruiting class including the +3?
  3. 4 Recruits That Should be 4 Stars

    I heard Quayshon had a pretty subpar senior year leading to teams backing off on him. Not saying this is true but has anyone heard anything different?
  4. Favorite Travel Destinations

    My wife and I went to Costa Rica a couple summers ago. Just southeast of Liberia on the Pacific coast. Had a blast, went ziplining, horseback riding, volcano sightseeing, visited a couple small towns. Its just a laid back easy going lifestyle that is the complete opposite of the American culture. If/when i'm close to retirement (30+ years), it will most likely be on a shortlist for us. We also went to New Orleans last summer. It's not for everybody, but we had a good time. A couple swamp tours, checked out the old above ground cemeteries, and enjoyed Bourbon Street for the most part. The food down there is some of the best I've had, especially if you get away from the touristy stuff and find some hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Best part about New Orleans, you get to walk around anywhere with a drink in your hand. I dont know how many times I left the hotel with a drink in one hand, and a second stashed away in my pocket. We also have a trip planned this coming June to Hawaii, and booked our tickets a couple days ago. I've got a buddy in the military down there so we will have room and board for free. We can't wait to hit up some hiking trails and eat some fresh sea food. Hopefully a European trip planned in the next 5 or so years before the wife wants some little ones scurrying around.
  5. Paris attacks

    http://www.wcsh6.com/story/news/nation/2015/11/18/reports-eight-suspected-isis-militants-posing-refugees-detained-turkey/75977926/ Helping out our vets and taking care of our own countries problems should be a first priority. A lot of people voice this opinion as a rebuttal for taking in additional refugees (which I personally disagree with). Unfortunately, many of those who share this view also want additional troops/military presence in the middle east. Resulting in a greater deficit, more money being spent on the military, and additional vets to take care of years down the road. Its truly a double edged sword. Not saying you have this view, just adding to what you have already stated.
  6. "Jordan Stevenson is done"

    This just feels a lot like the Texas debacle that has been going on for the last 2 years. I could see a mass exodus of players due to dismissal/quitting during the offseason, followed by an influx of young players next year. Next season is going to be another rebuilding year, there's no way around it, whether we have a new coach or not. I'd even venture out to say year #3 is going to be just as painful to watch. I just don't get a good feeling about whats going on around the football program..It's really hard to put it into words.
  7. That had me rolling at work too..Nice to see some humor in the midst of all the doom and gloom
  8. Pass Defense Question

    The problem is that we are starting/playing way too many players that either aren't ready or just don't have the talent to be playing at this level. Aside from Josh Mitchell we are playing the same guys as last year. This was suppose to be our deepest group defensively. Virtually everyone out there has at least 1 year of D1 experience.
  9. Pass Defense Question

    Yep. Use the sideline as an extra defender. Play more press coverage to throw off timing routes and eliminate the 3 step drop quick throws to a spot. Have 1 safety in the box and one high to help the CB out. As mentioned earlier, no team will run 4 vertical routes. I just hope wa start seeing something in the way of help for the CB's. You're describing cover 3 or cover 1 robber defense. The Quarters everyone loves to hate is cover 4. Like others alluded to, i don't know how likely Banker is philosophically to change his base D at this point. I have a feeling more aggressive corner play will help a lot. I think they're scared of getting burnt deep and that's resulting in the cushion. Pressing at the line would help a lot too. Hopefully, they get more comfortable and start playing less loose. This is where the scheme becomes confusing. We give a huge cushion to prevent big plays but consistently get beat not only deep but on short slant and out patterns that turn into 20+ yard gains. Would it really hurt that much to press the receivers at the line?
  10. We bought a puppy. Looking for tips

    All good questions. My wife and i recently bough a German Shepherd as well. He is now a 10 month old 100 lb bohemoth. Training them early is very important. In regards to the biting a stern "no" or yelp worked for us as well. Puppys use their mouths for everything (ours still does some) it's something they will grow out of. Ours wasnt crated for long because we had the same problem as you. I've heard of putting something in their that smells like you (a shirt, shoes, shorts) something you wouldn't mind getting chewed on. I've also hear of people covering the crate with a blanket at night so it's completely dark and also makes the dog feel more relaxed/safe. Give the puppy lots of excersise so its tired at night. If you wear them out, they will sleep better. I try to take ours on 3 walks/day and also play fetch in the yard. Discipline is tricky. We have never used a timeout corner for a dog. A stern "no" worked pretty good for us. Teaching them commands like sit, lay down, and stay are always useful when a dog is misbehaving too. Always socialize your dog as well. Let him play with other dogs and see other people (strangers) daily. GSD's can become aggresive. Ours began to act out on us at roughly around 5 months old, barking and growling at people, especially kids. So we set up play dates with a friend who owns a dog and also with a couple down the block who have some younger kids he can run around with. This is still something we are working on. Exercise often and teach him commands. They are smart dogs and will catch on.
  11. Kenny Bell Speaks Up

    Something I could see Kenny tattooing on his back...Then bitching about his bills
  12. Kenny Bell Speaks Up

    Bo's players echo the insanity that is this entire coaching staff. The fans have been pitted against the football team since late 2010 early 2011...A sh#t product on the field is acceptable, but how dare us fans call out this overpaid staff when nothing has changed or is going to change with Bo in charge. What has been instilled in these players is the cowards way out..Time to blow this coaching staff up and start fresh.
  13. Form letter to the AD

    1. Kiffen - Lane or Monte? 2. Frost - Nebraska ties, first time head coach?...what could go wrong? 3. The Hamburglar - D-Coordinator, excellent at takeaways 4. Kim Kardashian's bum - O-line coach, aint no one getting in the way of that bootay 5. Obama - Bring in all the "Talented" players
  14. Form letter to the AD

    I dont think hes trying to knock him for writing the letter, but instead where he is sending it. Am I correct Huskerscott? Hell I dont know..Send it to the AD..Chancellor..and Board to make it easy on yourself.
  15. NOTICE TO TIM BECK

    Agreed..Ameer has done more with absolute sh#t for an offensive line than anyone has in the nation..the fact that he made it 9 games into the season without an injury in amazing.
