  1. Some of the rumor mill is that cause of death might be something else--although I dont know how anyone could say the officers actions didnt cause whatever caused death. My guess is Gov. Walz made him speed things up. Even with murder charges, I still suspect major issues this weekend with looting.
  2. https://kstp.com/news/george-floyd-fired-officer-overlapped-security-shifts-at-south-minneapolis-club-may-28-2020/5743990/ This claims that while they worked at the same place, they might not have known each other.
  3. I dont like PJ Fleck but he has already built something that makes me nervous.... He is also losing a lot of VERY talented players that saved his butt. Antoine Winfield basically saved them twice last year. They almost lost to Fresno State and South Dakota State. He was a huge savior for them. They also lose Coughlin and Martin who were high level guys on the LB/DE space. PJ is getting strong recruits right and left and he has enough hype built up that the fans might actually support.\ That all being said, I still think there record was a bit of a mirage. Dont get me wrong, they were a VERY good team last year but Iowa/Wisconsin showed where they can be beat. If Fleck sticks around, I see them being a team that is very steady and then has big years every couple years when the stars align. Fleck has all the guys buying in and that is not good for the Huskers.
  4. If they dont test weed anymore, he should be fine.
  5. I am confused. One minute I feel like he is out then back in then out then back in. Here is my take on Cam. I think he is a passionate dude who lets himself wander. I think Fred is being really tough on guys like him to try and right the ship now.... It seems like Cam and others understand they screwed up but still hard to not feel like you are getting big punishment for little things. Fred is flipping the culture. Holding guys accountable. If Cam comes back, I hope he fully buys in and that will help him on the court. Hopefully Cam realizes Fred is trying to set him up for a better life, regardless of basketball. Becoming an adult and maturing is not always an easy process.
  6. Some of the idiots who feel the need to respond just baffle me. I am not saying I agree with all of Cam's choices but feeling like you need to take a shot at a kid... Jeeeezus.. BE BETTER.
  7. Here are the names of players I would say are potentially gone: Burke- pretty much gone in my eyes Mack- I think he is probably gone but who knows Green- I had him as my most likely to leave, not sure if he sticks around now that others are going. Cross- Some have speculated/ I think he stays and hope he does Thor- Does he want to go play pro overseas? I dont think he will yet. I assume he is back one more year. Easily- Heard this mentioned if he thinks he can get a perm scholarship elsewhere but I dont see it. I think he sticks it out. My guess is we lose 3 guys- Burke, Mack and Green. Losing Mack sucks but I think Fred has plenty of irons in the fire with other point guards.
  8. I honestly am not sure what to say anymore.... I am a bit surprised that Frost was cool with it.
  9. Sad to see him go. He showed moments but again, if you cant get on board.... I also think he had always sort of wanted out and was pushing to graduate early so he could go elsewhere.
  10. I dont know, I kind of like his tenacity. So many of the trolls here just give up after they get blocked ... He just keeps coming back with obvious names, posts Bo Pelini-esque rants, gets blocked and comes back for more. Now-a-days trolls quit too easily.
  11. While this season has sucked, I have seen flashes that give me hope/excitement. They run plays that work. They have a few guys who seem to be pretty talented but lack depth. Cam Mack is a really good player who just doesnt have the talent around him. This team will look VERY different next year in some senses but concern is still around Hoibergs small guy lineup in the rough B1G. That being said, I think future teams will run a lot more which should help with lack of size. Adding some talented guys like Walker, Banton, Stevenson, Allen and King should make a major difference.
  12. My fear is more that it will create lesser care/longer lines-- Some of it might just be fear of the unknown but my current plan allows me to go to plenty of doctors and the coverage is good for my family. I just think going to the way extreme with healthcare reform could create a lot more issues than we know. Would prefer a gradual change.
  13. Thats just the thing, I dont know.... Most dont really talk about her. She has pretty easily won election and re-election every time yet I just dont really know much about her. She has gotten far more comfortable and I honestly think she is a strong candidate but just doesnt have enough to get her over the hump. She seems to be supported but not like glaringly.
  14. Fair point but I just dont get how.. He is so far left that I honestly have nerves voting for someone that is that far left. I tend to sit closer to the middle. I like my healthcare coverage. I am a fan of Healthcare for all but also like the idea I can still keep mine. Your evidence is noted.. I just have a hard time wrapping my head around it.
  15. I only watched like 25 minutes... But as someone who honestly could lean either way in most elections(except when Trump is involved), I do have some major concerns with some of the Dem candidates. That being said, I am very ready to move on from Trump, and sadly because we have the stupid 2 party system here, I am forced to go for a Dem. I like Mayor Pete the most, but do have some concerns similar to what your mentioned.. I just dont know if he is ready. Bernie is a bit too extreme left for me. I respect what he says, but he isnt my first choice. Warren is still far left but I like her. I am from Minnesota and still cant get a read on Amy. I honestly am surprised she is still in this. Biden has done nothing for me. He just seems lost or like he is expecting the nomination to be handed to him. At this point, I honestly dont think any of these candidates have a great shot against Trump because they are all going to miss ina crucial area. Mayor Pete cant get the minority vote. Bernie cant get the independent vote. I honestly think the best candidate is Elizabeth Warren. I dont claim to be a great political mind, so happy to hear anyone who disagrees with my points and feel free to convince me who might be the best for the Dem party and America. Trump supporters need not apply. You will not convince me he is good for this country.
  16. Thinking about taking the Wifey on a cruise.. not sure when or where... Ideas from Husker nation on best places to go(no alaskan or cold ones.. tropical only)

      One other piece of advice, the time of year greatly impacts price.  Fall (aka Hurricane Season) is the cheapest, where as winter through spring is more expensive.  Also, we will always fly down to the port a day early, because you never know what will happen with weather/mechanical issues and the ship ain't waiting for you.

      @Enhance Yeah. To me it's like... if I'm going to Mexico, I wanna explore some Mayan ruins or something, not sit around in some tourist bar, you know? Chichen Itza > Cabo Wabo.

      @Red Five Thanks for all the great information. We are looking at RC and Norwegian. At this point I think we are targeting more the east side/ leave from Ft Lauderdale and then cruise down and back--5 days. We have done the all inclusive which are fun but we want to try something different. No idea if a Cruise is for us but worth a shot. We are targeting end of April.

  17. Cant have fairweather fans if you dont have any fans at all.
  18. First lets see if he will take a walk on spot before we give his scholarship to one of the many 5 stars wanting to come here.
  19. That is a very different situation. Glen was there for a long time and was more of a bo situation without the attitude. Glen also had some major issues with the AD. They thought they could get a new coach who could get them over the hump. Brand new administration that had nothing to do with Glen.
  20. After this year, Fleck has at least 5 years of job security.... That being said, he might be coaching Notre Dame or a different school by then.
  21. Thats right.... Should have just done the math 2020-Lincoln 2021-MN 2022-Lincoln 2023-MN
