  1. Past hour
  2. That's circumstantial at best, IMO. Protestors began blocking traffic at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Violent rioting and attacks on property began two hours later. That was three days ago. That was also the same day the officers were fired. Filing charges and investigating this kind of stuff rarely happens with the flip of a switch, so it's equally as likely that their opinion changed regardless of external factors.
  3. Why can’t we have nice things. Corona didn’t help in this I’m sure but Jebus. Kid was basically the 2020 recruiter too.
  4. Henry Gray has put his name in the portal.
  5. 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.
  6. Henry Gray already in the portal. Probably homesick. Gonna happen a lot with these Florida kids.
  7. What is more impressive, the dunk or that the rim/backboard/post held up?
  8. Fish tank guy told me JD took an upper decker in Frost's office bathroom.
  9. Yesterday, the prosecutor said, ""My job in the end is to prove he violated a criminal statute. And there is other evidence that does not support a criminal charge." Today, the same prosecutor charged third-degree murder. It looks something woke up somebody.
  10. *Long whistle* Douglas County seems to think I deserve a 32% increase to my property taxes. Yuck.

  11. Fong with a confidence 8 CB for N
  12. IMO this doesn't wake up anybody - it does more to harm the local community and peoples' livelihoods, people who had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. It takes away paychecks... the ability to pay rent or buy food. It perhaps forces people to apply for unemployment. It could raise taxes to repair the damage they caused. Someone was also shot and killed during the riots. There's some speculation that this person 'may' have been involved in the looting but nothing concrete has come out yet. And on top of all this, virtually all top officials have condemned this officers' actions including the governor and police chief. I understand the aggression that leads to rioting, too. And what happened to George Floyd was deplorable and inexcusable, but there are a lot of people suffering (and people who will suffer) as a result of the actions of a few. Most of the people being punished right now for Floyd's death had nothing to do with it.
  13. I believe the issue is what the article at the beginning of the thread and Chinander’s trying to figure out....rush ends. In a 4 -3 you have two rush end specialist on the field every play and one more bigger body on the line. Which is of paramount importance in the B10....more bigger athletic bodies. Chinander’s trying to address this with one smaller athletic body. Which he usually has them running down field away from the quarterback to cover a back or tightened. So right back to the problem of 3 on 5 and QBs with all day to throw. The SEC is full of NFL talent and top notch DCs. I think Chinander’s D would be better in the B12. It’s the wrong fit for the B10 football. When Nebraska had great Defenses in the past we always has 2 talented D ends. We will never be able to recruit those types again in a 3-4. The most talented B10 team OSU runs a 4-3 and is consistently recruiting and getting D ends to the NFL. You know like we used to.
  14. I don't think all police officers are bad. Not even close. I know a decent handful of cops, all good at their jobs and good citizens. But I don't know how you can disagree with a conclusion that policing practices and training need a fundamental reform. We've seen too much needless and tragic death by cop to ignore it. It's not just rogue bad apples, the system of law enforcement has turned into its own entity with its own emergent qualities which at the very least allows for a reality where someone unfit for the work can be in the job, do something like this, and too often escape with impunity. Also I don't like the rioting and looting, but I understand it. Entire generations of communities being silenced, harassed, abused, told that we're past all that, and ignored will only stay silent, take it in the teeth and take the high road for so long.
  15. Purdue, simply because it is the first game and there is still doubt as to whether or not we actually have a season.
  16. Can't believe he turned down that party scholarship to Blue Mountain State!
  17. Without intent!?! Same charge as selling bad drugs!?! Maybe they're being conservative knowing juries are notorious for giving cops free reign to kill African Americans.
  18. I think it made sense that Vedral transferred when he did - nothing negative on Frost or the Huskers. I did take it for granted that he would likely be the number one QB there going into fall since I thought his main competition would be Johnny Lanagan (50.3% comp 4/9 td to int ratio) but in reality it looks like it may be Peyton Powell, the transfer out of Baylor. If he is eligible, he has a real shot to win the job. The kid was recruited hard by big programs, including Ohio State, and is a 4 star guy with 4 years of eligibility remaining. The only other guy in the room, Art Sitkowski, passed the ball well in his two games last year (44/68) but he isn't the mobile guy they are looking for. Hope Vedral wins it but it's no guarantee.
