  1. I remember when Bo told Suh that he needed to get better before going to the NFL, which is a major reason Suh returned for his senior season. It worked on Suh and he had one of the most dominant seasons of any player in NCAA history in 2009. Maybe it'll light a fire under Jackson.

  2. Bo Kittrell & Jacob Weinmaster came to the running club last night to talk about the Football Road Race (to benefit Team Jack). They did a "fun facts" about them as an intro. When Kittrell was 4 years old he dressed up as Scott Frost for Halloween.

  5. Been awhile since this thread has been bumped. That pesky ole slush fund the Trump Foundation just won't go away. Edit: Thread with good info. This actually goes deeper than I thought. Not only did they use his charity to decorate Trump golf courses and pay off legal fees, it appears they sent money to people from the campaign. That would definitely be some type of campaign finance violation.

  8. As of right now, I don't think you can objectively put Frost ahead of Meyer, Franklin, Dantonio, Chryst, Ferentz, Fitzgerald or Harbaugh. All seven of those guys have accomplished things at their current schools. Frost hasn't done anything at Nebraska yet. In the near future though, I think Frost will be much higher.

  19. There is a very small, but somewhat legitimate, reason for this IMO (in the context of regular every day Americans who identify as Republican/conservative -- not in regards to politicians): Conservatism has lost the culture "war" in America. Because of a few reasons. The two biggest ones being the correlation of conservative/liberal ideas and rural/urban lifestyle, and also the rise of the internet, social media and general connectivity. The world and the country have become a much bigger and more connected place. What's interesting is that while conservatives (rural citizens) have a disproportionately powerful voice in government, liberals (urban citizens) have a disproportionately powerful voice in culture, because while the percentages of people who believe X vs Y might not really be all that different, cities seem to naturally be much more progressive, and cities are where the progression of technology, and specifically the technology of mass communication and the sharing of ideas with like-minded people all over, have incubated. Conservatives (rural citizens) very often feel forgotten, ignored, and more importantly feel unfairly mocked, scorned, and patronized to. A lot of that is imagined in their heads, and exacerbated by partisan news. But at least some fraction of it is legitimate. Most anyone who has or does live in a big city knows just how easy and effortless it is to start painting a mental picture in your head of how conservative/rural people are dumber, more ignorant, more uneducated, and more clueless than you are. I am entirely guilty of this.

  20. So I'm gathering that I need to start my own "Mets Misery Thread" That seems to be the key to getting the team to play better......

  21. What the hell are we supposed to talk about. It’s summer. We can only discuss frosts greatness in so many different threads. I for one am not uncomfortable to acknowledge frost had options. ESPN rambles about worthless crap all day and lots tune in to watch 2 people give their opinions on topics. It’s fun to debate and speculate. I actually think that’s why this board was created

  24. This is defcorn 11!!! We are going to ruin everything about the Huskers, throw away our tradition and stomp all over Bob Devaney's grave if we don't hand out the Blackshirts the way God & Tom Osborne intended!!!!! I pray to God, little baby Jesus & Ndamukong Suh's swim move that we hand them out after the last week of camp, before the first game. If we don't do it exactly like that and no other way, the terrorists have already won.

  25. Said he "got a lot of questions answered" this time - mostly academic stuff. Said he wasn't sure about Nebraska after his last visit but feels a lot better now. Indicated that his top group is Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan, Louisville and Iowa State. Visited Louisville last weekend and is set to visit Michigan next weekend. Wants to play early.

  28. This has probably already been covered ad nauseum but.... For about the first 30 years of the "Blackshirt" tradition there really was no decipherable difference between the starters or those who had "earned" them or the unit overall living up to the standard. We generally had very good defenses so it was one in the same. Then we come upon these last 20 years where the play hasn't been up to snuff and then all these discussions/arguments over what the "tradition" is rear their ugly head. Basically, both camps are right, the tradition is the black shirts are for the starters/top unit AND the tradition is for stellar, smothering defense. I've been one to say the tradition is to award them to the starters prior to the first game and then hold them accountable and make sure they earn it everyday in practice. But, I also realize that can't be the whole story if the defensive performance on the field doesn't align with good defense. IMO the tradition is nothing but a sham if it doesn't deliver defense we can be proud of. So I've got no problem with how any coach or staff wants to handle it as long as they make sure to deliver the goods on Saturdays. Did I have a problem with how Callahan, Pelini, Riley dealt with the blackshirts tradition? You bet I did because they didn't perform. It's high time for the defense to again start acting like they deserve a special moniker such as the blackshirts. So I don't care how Frost/Chinander handle it as long as we can quit cringing every time the other team has the ball. If they can't accomplish that I have no problem with relegating the blackshirts to the annals of history. It's just been a joke for 20 years. It's time that changes and then we'll quit having these discussions about what the real tradition is.

  29. Good point. If the coaching staff has the policy that recruits are only allowed to commit once they agree to shutdown their recruiting process, we should expect to see little to no decommitments and no visits to other programs. Also, if someone commits during their visit (like Jackson Hannah wanted to), then you would think those are solid commitments and they would take no visits to other programs.

  31. You're absolutely right; he's a stat monster, and does things we haven't seen since the Big O. I would have a hard time putting him above guys like Shaq, Hakeem, Stockton, Malone, or Isaiah Thomas, let alone some of his contemporaries like Durant and Curry, though.

  32. Oh, you mean like when SF committed to NU back in 1993 coming out of high school? Make no mistake. Scott Frost is smart. But that's one of the reasons he's a good HC.

  34. One of the largest reasons this became a big deal was because of the way BP reacted to being asked about them. It was a clear pressure point for him and yet he just kept doing things his way and reacting poorly to the questions. Personally, would I prefer they just get handed out preseason and be done with them? Yeah, I would. But, I understand what's led to things being the way they are now. This also all ultimately comes down to one thing - playing good defense. Start doing that and everything else will work itself out.

  35. Basically the ideal 3-4 ILB. Very nice to get him on a visit. UV now and then OV to a big game during the season and seal the deal.

  36. We've "evolved" into having to ask when and how many shirts will be handed out. And what the criteria is. And did they check with McBride. Simpler was better regarding this area of Husker football.

  40. Beckton has also said that he felt like Heupel only offered him a job with the new staff down there because he was kinda 'obligated' to do so, whereas Frost made him feel like he was genuinely wanted when he came to UCF.

  44. An American Life - Ronald Reagan's autobiography. Very enjoyable read with all of the stories told with the Reagan humor. I think liberals would like it also! He talks a lot about his upbringing, his family, how he got into politics, and his the importance of his faith. Starts with his birth and goes through his transition from being a Dem to a Repub (although he would not identify with the current class of Republicans - regardless how they try to claim his mantle) and covers his fight against communism (starting during his acting days) and also his desire to reduce the # of nukes.
