  1. Barbara Bush Passes Away

    I wonder why that would be ? A protocol thing or a too busy thing . Idk what Obama was doing Instead of those funerals, but I think he would have been crucified if he went golfing instead .
  2. Barbara Bush Passes Away

    Lol I guess I didn’t think about them not wanting him there . I saw a pic today of Melina smiling with Obama at the funeral . Thats one of the first times I think I’ve seen her smile .
  3. Barbara Bush Passes Away

    Every day is a new low for Trump . Why on earth would he not go to that funeral?
  4. Yeah I remember Irving Fryar . He was the only one back then that could catch the ball well enough to earn a spot on today’s teams , though . Because of the run heavy offense we ran, blocking was more important back then .
  5. I think a lot of this whole discussion is based on how you remember it . Do you remember Tmart as the blindingly fast, fearless playmaker pre injury? or 1/2 step slower guy who made bad decisions , commited turnovers , and took too many sacks ? TA used as run first throw second limited decision role (Foster farm bowl game) was great . Or do you remember gimpy, post injury guy forced to throw constantly ? Yolo bombs and a maddening inability to hit a receiver 10 feet away ? Gill was a great player in my youth, but I mostly remember he could never win the big one . To be fair though he didn’t have near the receivers we have had post Callahan . I think Westercamp, Swift , Morgan etc would have caught that 2 point conversion and changed history . Memories of Crouch could be tainted by seeing him get rocked by Miami in 2002 (one of the best teams in college history ) or his not so good attempt in the NFL. I remember a dynamic playmaker with his arm and legs whose play won many games for us . Berringer didn’t play enough for me to even remember his play but he was a great person gone too soon and I think that’s why people are ranking him so high . Some of this is comparing apples to oranges too . Different offenses , different types of receivers and offensive lines etc all shaped how the qbs carreer went .
  6. Silicon Valley HBO series

    I like this show, and I've liked all of Mike Judges work. I thought the Jing Yang character was annoying and unnecessary though. Probably 15 other characters i liked better on the show including Bachman. To each their own i guess.
  7. Crouch's stats are just as balanced and productive, if not more, than any of those guys. He would excel in frosts offense too.

  8. I went with Crouch . I thought he was a more elusive , physical runner than Tmart, and a better passer. The rest on the list were more pass, or run heavy, i thought Crouch had about the best balance i can remember.
  9. The Republican Utopia

    I really don't think this will ever be happen. Corporations, and the Ultra wealthy wont allow it.
  10. Shawn Eichorst/Mike Riley positive achievements thread

    I agree Pelini went too far,(several times) and i'd forgotten TO's attempts to rein him in . In my life though i've seen some pretty bad employees turned around, through proper management, and i after hearing Moos talk i wondered if a strong personality/steady hand like him would have worked better.. I think personal issues between SE,HP, and BP actually made things worse.
  11. Shawn Eichorst/Mike Riley positive achievements thread

    Nothing good about either one to me. Harvey Perlman didn't "Like" Pelini and didn't know how to deal with him so instead of hiring a competent AD like Moos, for instance, to try to straighten things out, he brought in Eichorst to fire Pelini. I thought Pelini was a good enough football COACH , to try to work with him on his other issues . Eichorst then compounded that error by hiring Mediocre Mike , who was a nice guy, but a lousy coach. The worst three years of Husker football i can remember, ensued. Basically glad the whole ordeal is over and very exited that we finally have the right coach and AD in place things are looking up .

  12. Poll: Coke vs. Pepsi

    Coke ( or squirt ) for mixing drinks, but I prefer Pepsi to drink straight. It’s sweeter and tastes better to me. Ive worked overnight shifts for years, and don’t drink coffee, so Mt.dew/diet dew are my caffeine fix .
  13. The Movie & The Players & The History Books

    If Im making the movie im going with these guys Alec Balwin does a really good Trump Melissa Mccarthy does a good Spicer too Dana Carvey as the turtle And grown up Eddie Munster as Paul Ryan
  14. Do you pray?

    Many people find inner peace and strength through prayer . The feeling that God is on your side, helping you, and the feeling of turning your troubles over to a higher power can be a very powerful things . I don’t pray any more but my family all does, so I’ve seen that first hand .
  15. One of the best ! RIP
