  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.

  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.

  27. Ran a 37.4 300 hurdles and turned around and hit a 48.6 400. A lot of 300 guys don't even bother running the 400. Would have needed to get in the 46's to win the 5A 400 though.

  29. So what does that tell us on what Trump could become if the situation was right. It seems he learns more from and gives favor towards the dictators of the world and not our friends. I fully expect Trump to squash any Mueller report and well fire the guy if needed. Since when did American democracy stop fighting for individual freedom to fighting for being able to invest in beach front property? Reading the UN report on NK one sees that appealing to the leaders greed is a fairly inept negotiating attempt. If we can't march into this summit demanding civil rights for the citizens of NK we have no business talking to the NK leaders. The only way to successful change that immoral system is to remove it and not by supporting it wt condos on the beach. Kim will just use the condos as forced labor of a different kind - serving the rich who come there to stay and enriching Kim and his ilk.

  30. Cook's salary for 2009/2010 was $211,978 meaning he's making more than 3x more than he was eight years ago. In 2011/2012 he got a raise to $350,000. In 2012/2013 he got a raise to $375,000. In 2013/2014 he got a raise to $400,000. In 2014/2015 he got a raise to $426,537. In 2015/2016 he got a raise to $456,451. In 2016/2017 he got a raise to $600,000. Now, after his second national championship in three years, he's making $675,000. That's not bad. You can live on that in Lincoln, NE.

  33. I just finished these two: "Tin Cup Dreams: A Longshot Makes it on the PGA Tour" by Michael D'Antonio. Pretty good read. It's about Esteban Toledo. "The Real History of the End of the World" By Sharan Newman. It's a compilation of various end of the world prophesies. With attempts at humor mixed in. Decent book. I'd recommend it.

  35. It's always a little interesting to look back and see how close things were to going another direction. What happens to Nebraska if Tom Osborne doesn't promise Frank Solich the head coaching job? Does Osborne stay on, and do we win another Championship in 1999? 2001? What happens if Pederson doesn't fire Solich in 2003, and Bo's defensive changes keep the ship afloat? What happens if Solich picks up recruiting and is still here - can you imagine if it's 2018 and we're only on our third different head coach since 1962? What if Callahan fires Cosgrove and hires a good defensive coordinator? Joey Ganz spends 2008 torching teams like the latter half of 2007, Suh is a monster, and we win a conference title. Would Callahan still be here if that was the case? What if Taylor Martinez isn't hit just so in that Missouri game and doesn't screw up his foot/ankle? Is he our fourth Heisman winner? What if Ndamukong Suh was held on the final offensive play against Texas in the Big XII Championship game? Or even slowed down, just a little bit? Think about the fact that we lost that game because Suh was too good, got to McCoy too fast on that play, and made him throw away the ball just an Nth too soon. So many possibilities. Maybe Gill's pass on the two-point conversion is just three inches further to the right in 1983 and Osborne wins his first National Championship 11 years earlier. Maybe the refs don't make two of the worst calls in football history on back-to-back plays in 1982 at Penn State and he wins that year, too. Maybe Henery is just short on his 57-yarder in 2008 and we finish the decade .500 against Colorado. When you've got idle time in the offseason and time to think about stuff like this, it's kinda interesting to think how close things are to being so different.

  36. Don’t get confused with big names assistants, here or not. I feel like Frost is the big game catch, he knows what he needs to lure talent; coaches and players. If if we don’t have the success we think we need in a couple years (need to fire/hire new coaches) or we have so much success that these coaches get jobs elsewhere; then we can start to wonder. There is a long leash with Frost. But he knows what’s working or not. He’s in the film room, he’s in the meetings, he’s seeing it day to day. If Frost gets this train rolling but there are glaring weaknesses at a position group or recruiting he’ll make the changes. Or, if they’re super successful and we lose coaches to head hunters he’ll find the right people. This discussion is all nuance and conjecture, I mean..who cares. Let’s just go play the games and see how it shakes out over time. We just CAN’T be worse than 4-8...right?

  37. I disagree. He could either let Frost bring all of his coaches, or tell Frost he can't bring all of his coaches. If the latter, either Frost doesn't come or they don't have as good of a relationship, and Frost doesn't feel like he owns the team. That can lead to a lot of problems, imo. The latter would make Moos a micro-manager. You have to trust the guy you picked to lead the team and that includes picking the coaches he starts with. If Frost ever has to replace coaches due to performance, that's on him and them, not Moos. When it becomes a Moos problem is a few years down the line, when he might need to nudge Frost into replacing someone. But he shouldn't do what Eichorst is said to have done, which is tell him exactly who to hire.

  38. Thats great but during the time that this was the tradition, Nebraska was at the top of the game. If you started for Nebraska that meant you might have put another guy out of playing that could be the 3rd best in the country at that position. The hate on Bo for trying to make players accountable for a scared tradition of excellent play is ludicrous. If you didn’t like his demeanor, that’s whatever, but thought was correct. The thinking of the current coaches is similar. Coaches wanting accountability for a prestigious position. Call my silly but it is the right thing to do until we see them start to resemble what the coaches want, that may take years to accomplish but I think at some point it will go back to starters every year. It will take a monumental effort to start here after a couple years.
