  1. And Brett squashes the Herman rumor.

  2. Im guessing the team has heard about former players and the tradition of NU since Frost came back as HC. Two former, Blackshirts, NC football, former NFL players, Super Bowl, Pro Bowl etc.......Pretty sure the kids wanted to listen. Hoping some of the intensity from Winstom and Peters rubs off. I know how to spell their names. Wanted to see how long it tool for someone to correct!

  6. The Travis Fisher interview on Sports Nightly was some of the best information I've heard all camp. His glowing remarks of Antonio Reed was surprising and awesome to hear. He referred to him as the best safety on the roster. http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?ATCLID=211603807&DB_OEM_ID=100&DB_OEM_ID=100 8/9, Segment 2

  7. No we don't. We had far, far higher taxes on the rich and corporations during the years when American was supposedly "Great" Obama let the temporary Bush tax cuts slide during his term, a term in which the American economy rebounded from the Global Credit Crisis that saw trillions of dollars disappear from the ledgers virtually overnight, the result of Bush-era deregulation that let wealthy private investors play with other people's money without the personal risks and consequences. As has been pointed out many, many times to no effect, Trump is 18 months into an econ

  9. Good post. I think the attempts by some liberals to reduce people to membership in certain groups based on race, gender, etc. are a real problem. Why not change affirmative action to benefit first-generation college students, poor people generally, etc. I think it would be far more popular and constitutionally defensible if that was the case.

  10. In all seriousness, screw this antiquated, archaic macho masculine bulls#!t. The world has moved on, and there's no room for legitimate abuse masquerading under the guise of tough love anymore. Defenders will chalk it up to the pussification of society or snowflake culture, but that is not the case. Reality is that society has grown up and has found better behavior towards goals. There are better, healthier ways to inspire, encourage, teach, criticize, punish, etc. than something straight out of a 1960's military boot camp manual. Not only that, but that approach isn't even conduci

  11. It's going to be fun to see where this team can go in 12 games. I think we'll be a lot better in November. But, at times, this is going to be U-G-L-Y. Guys are going to be good at times and lost at others. They're going to compete well at times and then get distracted and regress. We have to learn to compete. We have to develop comfortable confidence with the play calls. We have to find out what guys are the answers and where we need young guys and more recruits. People are saying that nine wins is perfectly reasonable. Listen to the interview again. Frost is speaking the truth and he is sayin

  14. I was wondering if one back may have cold feet with the stack of backs we have who may be elite or close to being elite (GB, TB and MW). With MW and assuming TB stays healthy and gets the hardship rule that pushes him back to being a sophomore, as long as the other two backs sign, we will be in good shape in the near future at RB. If there would be one decommitment, losing someone like Grayson wouldn’t hurt as much as another position. If he does chose to take other visits, then the coaches should go fishing for another prospect, even at a different position. It would be okay for the coaching

  15. Hey there guys, I just wanted to say I'd sure like it if you all tried really hard out there in this one. Try to win it for ol' Mike okay? Just teasing you guys, I know it's gonna be a hard game so just do your best and keep thinking on how to get better and stuff and maybe with a little luck you can do some good things. Golly it would sure be swell if you guys came together and won this one, your coach is a heck of a guy, used to only hang 60 on us back in my head coaching days in Corvallis, and he did that outta respect cause we all know Mark would have given up 120 if given the opportunit

  16. I agree. I have no problem with them swearing or even yelling at players. The problem is belittling them, making fun and mocking, making them over eat, and running them out of the program in a chickensh#t manner. The coaches are there to help the players learn and operate at their peak, not to be an outlet for their aggression. It’s just stupid if they think this treatment will lead to anything good for the team or players.

  17. I don't really have a problem with profanity in general from coaches, but it kind of depends on how it's used. I do not have a problem with a college or pro coach saying "What the F*$k are you doing?" or "You guys are playing like s#!t right now." However, if it shifts toward "What are you doing you mother f*$&#r?" or "You are just a piece of s#!t." or "stop being such a p#@!y" then it's more problematic. If these last three examples are rare, I can live with it. If it happens routinely, then it's more troublesome.

  18. I wouldn't be shocked if we had a good game with them or even beat them, since we hung with them a little while last year, lost in OT (@ Wisconsin) the year before that, lost by 2 points the year before that, and Riley isn't our coach.

One of my side jobs while going to UNL was working in the Camera department at Shopko..Still have trouble believing Tom Osborne came in once and remembered me rolling my ankle in my new Nikes on the stadium turf during a pickup game my Freshman year..But my Manager decided to stop selling the only CD player we had and sold it to me cheap with my very first CD we used to demo it.. Interesting (to me) side note... (7?) years ago, my then 10 year old sees a coffee mug with this U2/Boy album cover on it while we were at Zia Records and asked me how they got his pictur

  22. The problem I have with the screaming, verbal abuse, throwing s#!t at people is I find it highly unlikely that it's a good teaching method or a good motivator. So not only does it not accomplish your goals, you're also making people feel like s#!t.

She was planning on doing it but missed some deadline so couldn't but she wasn't too upset. I don't think she was really that interested in it. Excited to get her to Lincoln...so she can start tracking down tickets to that CU game for me I suppose the separation anxiety will hit me when it comes to leaving her there

At first you look on in bewilderment as to what is going on, then you get confused as to what exactly is happening followed by feeling a little bit dirty about watching the whole thing and then finally giving up and going to get some nachos.

  28. I think this is 100 percent correct. 15 years ago, college was a lot cheaper and all four of the Dakota schools were in Division II. Now, college is dramatically more expensive and all four Dakota schools are FCS/IAA. Last year, North Dakota State, South Dakota State and South Dakota each made the FCS playoffs. SDSU made the semifinals and NDSU won the whole thing, again. I think now if kids don't get a power five offer, they don't have a problem taking a scholarship to a loaded FCS team over a middling MAC or Mountain West school. And it's hard to blame the

  31. This encapsulates it so perfectly. We've got money for a f#$%ing "Space Force," and unlimited golf trips, and all the little corrupt niceties that all these grifters that are currently heading up federal agencies happy, like personal flights, soundproof telephone booths, nice tables for their offices, tactical pants... But we've got people in our own country struggling and scraping by to survive. I just found out my girlfriend's mom is back at the doctor being seen about recurring kidney issues which will likely require ANOTHER surgery. Last time this happened it was he

  39. Personally, I think where Martinez loses this battle is on the mental side of things. If Gebbia can make better decisions he'll beat out Martinez even with this physical gifts. Reading the defense correctly and putting the ball in the spot that allows the offense to take advantage of defensive mismatches is more important in this offense then athleticism alone. Just my opinion, but I think Gebbia wins on the mental side of it.

  41. russian tv More detailed translation of what Tretyakov says re: sanctions (shortened in the original Tweet due to character constraints): "Let's turn this into a headache for Trump. If you want us to support you in the elections, which we're ostensibly arranging, then do this or that."

  42. Trump's Id may be referring to having to show your drivers lic if you write a check for groceries I have no idea what he might be thinking - that is the only thing I could think of that would be related to ID for groceries. Regarding the issue of voter ID - I don't understand the resistance to the idea that a voter should show either ID or a voter's registration card to make sure the voter is 1. Legal citizen eligible for voting & 2. voting in the right precinct. Of course Trump is using the idea as a red meat issue to stir up fear, etc.
