    I think you just contradicted yourself.

    Are we or aren’t we Rivals

    This is the type of hilarious pretentious ignorance that will continue to fuel Iowa disdain for us as a fanbase and program, which will continue to fuel more like you to keep thinking of the team who has beaten us 5 years in a row as, "beneath us", which will continue to put a chip on their shoulder, and around and around it goes.

    I picked all except for Ohio State and Maryland. Getting to 7 shouldn't be a thang. tOSU would be a major upset but it could happen. Im concerned about Maryland mostly because it falls between Wiscy and Iowa. I think we win 2 of those 3 because I'm hoping we have our sh#t together by that late in the season. But 5 more wins from here shouldn't be a problem. And I don't care what anyone says, we're beating Wisconsin this year and I believe we got enough more physical that slow plodding Iowa should pose no problem with our speed.

    I can't recall NU ever pulling a player out of Miami Central. I can't recall even garnering the attention of a Central player in the past.

    Racism - It's a real thing.

    Blackface is guilty by association. Maybe that's not fair if you've got some super cool honorable way of looking black, but that's just the way it is and for the time being it's probably better that way. Like, understand why the worst version of it is bad and then understand that people will see innocuous versions of it in a similar light, because there's no real compelling or sensitive reason for you to want to do it. Anyways, the Trudeau thing is silly and will blow over. There wasn't anything wrong with what he did back then culturally, and culture is what we use to judge ourselves by. Not culture now judging decades ago, but culture then. Also, noobdy who's outraged actually cares. You just get social clout for pretending to care so you convince yourself. It's exhausting.

    Racism - It's a real thing.

    Yeah, I didn't see that Trudeau was acting in some stereotypically offensive way... but it just comes back to the historical baggage of blackface. It's pretty much universally regarded as offensive these days, because of historically racist usage. So don't do it. However, that viewpoint was not universal back in 2001. A well-worded statement should take care of it, but it certainly should not ruin his career. Especially when the country just to the south has a president has blatantly says and does racist things on the regular today, and gets away with it.
  10. I think he is now running for Senate right? Not that that rules him out, but we need to get that GOP seat flipped in CO and he's got good chances. My dream - we flip AZ, CO and WI in Senate AND keep our house folks AND get the orange whip out of the white house.

    This was the exact same conclusion I came to. I think that in looking at our team, it is very possible that if the OL develops over the course of the season and we're not hit hard by injuries we have a chance at only losing to tOSU. I'm curious how our DL sets up against Wisconsin's OL.

    The percentages shown are odd for this type of pool. They don't show the percentage voting for each win. They simply add to 100%. Heh.

    Are we or aren’t we Rivals

    Iowa-Nebraska has the makings of a Colorado-type rivalry. Will it be Oklahoma, no. But that’s okay, there is a ton of hatred right now and I’m pretty sure Iowa is treating it like a rivalry - and wiping the floor with us. Our fan bases constantly interact and I would venture to guess both fan bases spend more time trash talking each other, than any other team. We’re a top 10 progam, Iowa is probably a top 30 program, we share a border, we play every year at the end of the year, in the coming years this game should have division title implications - Embrace It.

    No. I'm saying the author is cherry picking words from an interview to make up a quote that makes a politician seem like an elitist. Meanwhile, the President truly believes he is on a higher level than almost every other person on the planet and the same media that claims the left are full of "elites" don't seem to care. I agree it's a VERY low bar to step over, that's why I'm surprised so many journalists fail to make the step...

    Racism - It's a real thing.

    That's my point. I can fully understand it being offensive if I put black makeup on and then acted in a way that is a negative stereotype towards black people. But, that's not what is being talked about. It's just simply the fact that a white person had the audacity to put black makeup on in the first place....no matter the character, reason or how they act with it on.

    While we only have 11 commits, keeping our overall team ranking low, our average is only behind Ohio State and Michigan in the B1G. According to 247. I'm liking the slow process here. Feels like they're taking their time and getting exactly who they want.

  19. Oh yeah, I forgot about Lieberman and that potential combination. I googled the Kerry/McCain thing - apparently it was talked about/vetted/polled but never gained a lot of traction. They said it would be an "unbeatable" ticket. https://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/politicselections/nation/president/2004-05-27-kerry-mccain-poll_x.htm McCain ultimately told Kerry no and supported Bush that year.

    Racism - It's a real thing.

    There is a historical component of blackface - it was traditionally used on stage to portray stereotyped caricatures of black people. Often done in a disrespectful way - a version of black people as presented by racist white folks. It's woven into the contentious fabric of race relations, segregation, and discrimination in this country. It might be a bad analogy, but understanding why blackface is racist is similar to understanding why the confederate flag is racist. Sure, you can say it is just a flag that some southern states used in the past and represents "heritage" or whatever, but understanding the deeper context behind how the symbol has been used is an important part of the picture. If that's a crappy analogy let me know. But not understanding why it is offensive? Yep, that is a bit of privilege because perhaps as a white man in Nebraska (I'm making an assumption here), you haven't really had to deal with the ugly history of it and have not been directly impacted by it. Not necessarily your fault, but that's the way privilege works. Comparing it to dressing like a woman, or any other halloween costume is a fair point, though. I think part of it goes into how you are using the "character" and what message you are sending. Every year going back forever, halloween masks of the president's face have been popular. But there is a difference in putting on a Barack Obama mask versus putting on blackface and then acting in some stereotypical manner. Dressing up like a woman on the surface is not necessarily offensive, but obviously there are more tasteful ways to put on a costume than others. I'm thinking that portraying misogynistic stereotypes in costume is more difficult and less obvious than racial stereotypes.

    I'm sticking with my preseason prediction. I thought we could go 10-2 and we'd slip up on the road against Minnesota and Purdue or something like that. I changed it slightly since we slipped up against CU and after seeing Minnesota I think we can win that and make too many mistakes against Purdue. Obviously, this requires the team to play way better than they did in games 1 and 2 and probably even better than game 3. However, I think we've seen steady improvement week to week and we have a lot of talent so I don't think it's impossible. Plus, the last second upset over Ohio State will give this team a ton of confidence!
