  1. I'd read more of the Journal Star if Sipple wrote like they did back in the Twenties.

  2. The horseshoe was found when they started tearing down the grounds of the old Nebraska field after the 1922 Notre Dame win (4 horsemen game) Which was the last game at the old field before moving to Memorial Stadium for 1923. So when the team played Notre Dame for the rematch in 1923 they tapped the horseshoe for good luck. Nebraska won again so they kept right on tapping that shoe.

  8. Harry Stuhldreher, James Crowley, Don Miller and Elmer Layden were regarded as the greatest backfield ever. The "Four Horsemen" lost just two of the 30 games they played together, and both losses came at the hands of Nebraska http://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/football/top-50/beating-the-four-horsemen/article_41969b09-56bf-5f59-aaeb-ab4bca0bf88d.html

  9. So never tell your kid about: Lawrence Phillips Carl Pelini Frank Solich Jason and Christian Peter Andy Christiansen Brandon Reilly Avery Moss Suh (people forget that he hit parked cars to “avoid hitting a cat”) Terrel Farley I’m sure there are more I’m missing. But what I’m trying to say is that every college football programs had or will have players that make mistakes. It’s unavoidable.

  10. I’d like it if all Husker football players had a 4.0 in pre-med or engineering. They must all be 6’ tall too, so I can tell my son that that’s what happens when you eat all your vegetables. You probably have a parenting problem if you can’t teach your kid not to steal.

  16. You'll all make fun of me for this, but I genuinely know nothing about Kanye West. I know the name, I know he's married to Kim Kardashian, they have kids, and he's a musician. I have no idea about this guy other than this. So when this whole Kanye situation came up, I ignored it because the guy isn't on my radar. I live a Kanye-free life. So in that context I see this video that got retweeted onto my timeline. This is Kanye West?

  17. He doesn't have to think it. He has to make his followers think it. And judging by comments we see right here, they buy every word that comes out of this guy's mouth.

  18. How much of a moron do you have to be to think this? If you try to stop people whose job it is to decide innocence or guilt, you've obstructed justice regardless of whether or not you're guilty of a crime. Trump has tweeted repeatedly that he wants the investigation to stop, and any attempts to force it to stop (e.g. firing Comey? he's admitted at least once it was because of the investigation) are obstruction even if he is innocent of the topic of the investigation. I've said it many times - I don't think Trump colluded. I think the investigation hurt(s) his ego and because of that he obstructed justice.

  20. A common drum beat from groups like the NRA is that more guns, particularly in public places, is a deterrent to gun violence. Using this theory, a room full of gun-carrying NRA members should be one of the single safest environments for a vice president. We should expect backlash from gun rights activists, no? As it turns out, there is some criticism and acknowledgement: The bolded sort of aligns with what you were saying. Yes, the Secret Service supersedes local control, but there's no doubting the ironic nature of the whole situation.

  21. Ohio St is really the only one I'd put in another group, that's a very tough one. Michigan is that catalyst game....don't expect to win it, but if you do then it can create a positive snowball.

  22. I've made the point Mav is making several times, it's a great point. The reason it's not more commonly cited is because SOS filters are designed to be universal. But they are not, or maybe you could say shouldn't be, because some games it doesn't matter much if it's at home or not due to the margin between teams. It's a difficult schedule either way, but I think Nebraska can run the home slate, I really do. Troy will get everyone's attention after last year and they lose a lot of experienced production. Great coach, though, glad this one is early. Michigan St is another one circled, but I just don't have much respect for them. There is just such a gulf between what people think of them and their actual production in about any given year. It's like they get the respect of a blue blood with the expectations of a mid major. One of my favorite metrics is yards per play differential, you'll see me cite it a lot when trying to evaluate how good a team is compared to their record. Michigan St was a 10 win team....out gained their opponents by +0.3 yards per play. Your typical top 10 caliber team is in the 1.5-2.0 ypp range. Riley's best year, his first, was at +0.2. (Cited for context) By Pythagorean win expectation, another good "double check metric" Michigan St expected win total was 8-5 last year. The home game that scares me as much as any is Purdue. They had such a difficult time last year converting on plays that were there for the taking. They were overvalued, IMO, last year, but they fit the profile of a team that should be much better.

  23. Don't forget that ole samich eater Eric Crouch. He had the audacity to eat a $4 ham sandwich—an infraction that caused quite a stir within the halls of the ncaa.

  24. The sooner your son realizes that some people get advantages in sports due to their insane talent or size, the better. Yeah, it's not always fair, but in most cases talent trumps everything.

  25. What makes you think we’re in a spot to be picky? If a talented player, especially one that fills a giant need, wants N we shouldn’t turn him away. Mistakes were made. He paid the price and deserves a second chance imo

  28. I think that's fairly well-reasoned. I'm still sitting at a best case scenario of 7, maybe eight wins. I would be a tad surprised and a little disappointed with anything five wins or less.

  32. Started out on violin when I was six and played that until I was about 13. I picked up the guitar about that time and have been playing that for the last 15 years, mostly for personal use but I have played a couple of gigs with friends and a few local groups. Also used to play at my church for a brief time. I prefer electric guitar (my father bought me a Gibson for my 16th birthday). I've been really interested in learning the piano now though as it's a great instrument for learning theory. Part of me also wishes I had started out on piano as it can help you branch out to other instruments more easily.

  33. I think we'll beat Michigan State or Iowa. Possibly both. Wisconsin is a team we've played close lately, so maybe Frost pulls that off too.

  35. I agree with Chimi on this one. Gates initially showed great potential but the last 2 years have been dismal as far as I have been able to observe. Work ethic, attitude not very good. While the NFL is structured in away that Enhance notes should benefit Gates, I find it hard to believe there won't be plenty of more qualified/skilled OL to take those spots. I wish him well regardless.

  37. "Rampant pro Riley propoganda?" I remember a lot of Riley criticisms that were agreed upon or went without argument well before the season started. I made many of those arguments myself despite trying to maintain some modicum of optimism. But, I also ignore a lot of debates that go down familiar or tired paths (like Bo bashing), so perhaps my perception is a bit warped.

  39. I was going to say something, then realized it was a post made mid-September, 2017. Never liked the Riley hire, but did my best to support him. And honestly, after the 9 wins in 2016, before the 2017 season started, I was actually thinking Riley might have figured it out so I was pretty optimistic about the 2018 season before it started. Then we had a too close of a call against Arkansas State. Okay, it was still a win and sometimes teams put up far more of a fight than their talent level or conference affiliation suggests. But once we lost to Northern Illinois, that's when it hit me that Riley was the same pathetic loser he'd always been at Oregon State and he'd learned nothing. Like the OP, I took quite a few lumps (on another board) for saying that Riley should have been fired immediately after the Northern Illinois loss. Regarding Diaco, I figured the defense would struggle some...changing schemes is not easy and there are always "growing pains." I was aware of his absurdly conservative approach, but didn't see the point of being negativs towards him before he even had a chance to field a defense. But yeah...2017 was a real kick to the crotch.
