    In honor of this great news, I move that we change the thread topic to read: OLB Coach Jovan Dewitt HAD Throat Cancer Do I hear a “Second”?

    Your answers should've been No and No. It is not OK for a football player or any student to sit in their dorm and smoke weed. It's against University rules and probably also team rules. You and many others are confusing "what should be" with "what is". You don't just get to make up your own rules because you, or even a majority of others, disagree with the current rules. And I don't know where/how anyone thinks this is what teams do that are trying to excel at football or any sport. Weed is not a performance enhancer. Sure, it may not be as bad for the body as alcohol or eating junk food but you would have to cite the study that proves smoking MJ helps players perform. The answer is No, because putting weed ahead of your teammates and commitments is what selfish people do. It is in no way, shape or form a plan for making the player or team better. And, right or wrong, it is currently against Nebraska law and University rules. I'm not impugning his character over either issue. However I am beginning to question his intelligence and his commitment to the team. It may not be fair but big time D1 football players, especially at Nebraska, are under a microscope and need to conform to a higher standard of conduct. That goes double for a player who is already involved with an issue that is cutting into his practice time and availability to participate in games. If weed or alcohol or whatever is more important to them than the team, then they may find themselves not on the team. It may not be a character issue but it is at the least stupid and irresponsible. Personally I don't think either issue is a deal breaker....yet, but it is definitely strike 2 with an 0-2 count.

    Wow, you are comparing LP to Mo? That's laughable.

    If Miles was consistently at the top of the conference and won a conference title, you'd be correct.

    You do know that the President is famous for not even reading his daily intelligence briefings, delivered by people with years of expertise and varied political leanings. Donald Trump will, however, run with whatever unfounded conspiracy theory he saw on Breitbart, InfoWars, Fox & Friends and Twitter. He will directly contradict his own Secretary-of-State and National Security Advisor, sometimes countering a statement issued on behalf of the White House that morning with a personal tweet the same afternoon. The President has also blabbed classified secrets to foreign leaders -- including military maneuvers -- unaware that they were classified or just bragging because he's the commander in chief. It's hard to tell with this utter buffoon. There are plenty of conservatives and intelligence personnel who really hate seeing the profession derided this way, not to mention the actual danger to America. Please quit defending this proven f#&%-up with lazy references to Obama and CNN.

    The real question is who is the Narc who called the cops for smelling weed?

    I concur, and I wouldn't be shocked if we backed the truck up to get both Childress *and* Bolt out of aTm. Plus, Moos said he wants a coach that has P5 head coaching experience already. That kind of rules out Bolt (even though I'd be ecstatic with him as a head coach). Additionally, according to Sipple on the Ticket Early Break show, Erstad had already given notice to the AD he was going to quit...though he didn't give a specific time when he would quit...just that it would happen in the near future. So the AD office had plenty of time to make a list and check it twice. Long story short, I wouldn't be shocked if Moos already has a primary target in mind. Hell, it's Moos...he probably already has a deal in principle with the new coach and he's just gonna make us wait a week just because.

    This is a silly thing to wonder about. I drank in HS and fairly heavily in college. I smoked weed and also tried quite a few other illegal drugs. I am not too concerned if my kids drink or smoke some weed before they're 21. None of this has any bearing whatsoever on thinking what Mo did in this specific situation was stupid or not. I and my kids do not play football for Nebraska and we have not already been charged with felony that is this far undecided. What makes this stupid is he is already under a microscope, he represents a team and coach (not just himself) and for gosh sakes, if you're going to smoke weed in Nebraska, don't friggin get caught. It's not that hard. None of the things he's done are that bad on their own but it is beginning to display a pattern and that pattern is not making good decisions and not doing smart things and not operating in the best interests of his team.

    He seems like a great guy and will be the first African American commisioner of a Power 5 conference. Since he is a football guy let's hope he can help bring in more talent and positive coverage for all BIG football teams including the Huskers. Just adding some new links and tweets. Here is a quick bio video about him.

    I don't understand these Miles/Erstad comparisons in the least. They're lazy at best. One of those won a conference title during his tenure and finished in the top half of the conference six out of eight seasons, including five top three finishes. The other did not.

    Why did you single AOC out instead of titling this “Donald Trump and AOC” ? Neither of them served.

    You and me must gave grown up in quite different areas. In grew up in the Nebraska Sandhills. There was some keg parties, but no weed. Weed was not OK. Like Merle said, " WE DON'T SMOKE MARIJUANA". It's not that hard. There's a lot of us former Sandhill kids who are shocked at how accepted it is even by the police. Just sayin. I am not justifying alcohol either. It is really bad for some folks. Weed though changes personalities, even when you are not high. I have seen it. I don't think it has a place at all in our top notch athletic dorms. I don't think you can be your best if you are getting high regularly.

    The charges might not amount to much, legally, but at this point you have to at least consider Washington unreliable because his decisonmaking is suspect. We need to have somebody ready to step up as the new #1, at the start of the season or at any time Washington is here.

    As an ex-narcotics agent, less than one ounce of marijuana is an infraction in Nebraska. That is equal to a parking ticket. It isn’t even a misdemeanor. IMO, Frost should kick people off the team for parking tickets if he is going to do it for marijuana use. He could be afraid of the stigma it would put on his program if he doesn’t. If he kicks him off the team “to prepare the players for the NFL’s rules” , I wouldn’t agree with that because the NFL will allow marijuana use after the next union contract is negotiated. If he kicks him off because no drug use is a team rule, then I am all for it. Be a part of the team and a leader. Just depends on how Frost spins this one on whether most people will agree or not agree with the punishment.

    Thanks. So if he is cleared from his issues in California, the only legal strike against him is a minor drug citation. That's not worthy of being kicked off the team, in my opinion. This violation isn't nearly as bad as stealing bikes or getting a DUI (which a coach was able to keep his job).

    Baseball is one sport where the head coach/manager gets way too much blame when things go poorly (and too much credit when things go well). Baseball coaches are romanticized about being great tacticians or strategists. The coach can do everything “right” and it can be the “wrong” decision because of the failure of the players. It’s that way because there is so much down time during games that it gives time for every single decision to be second-guessed by the fans and media, at all levels of play. My son has been playing competitive baseball for the past 5 years. I think I have a good understanding of the game. I have been the fan/parent second guessing coach’s decisions and I have been part of the coaching staff making those decisions. Just yesterday, my son’s team was up 5-4 in a game, and we put in a pitcher who usually does a good job keeping the ball down and inducing ground balls. Yesterday, his pitches were up in the zone, he was hit hard, and before we knew it, our team was down 7-5, and we lost 8-5. Our coaching acumen had nothing to do with the win or loss of that game. It was a kid who wasn’t at the peak of his game, and other kids performed better than them. Nebraska had one pitcher who pitched the game of his life for 7+ innings, and then had one pitcher who had the worst game of his season 1 inning later. Erstad and Silva has nothing to do with the success of either player, once those pitches were being thrown and the batters were doing the hitting.

    Honestly I'm not sure why everyone is so fascinated with pitching. The bats going ice cold once we got into their pen is more concerning for me. This is the type of team you have to continue putting runs on when you're up and tonight we found out why. Not really sure about the armchair quarterbacking going on. We went with our best guy against their best guy(s) and they won. Gomes is just a true freshman. Sh#t happens.
