  1. Dude has missed a lot of things.. and if Tim Miles was his coach, I assume most of them were freethrows.

  2. The bankruptcies, the casino failure (it's hard to lose money owning casinos), the lawsuits from several hundred contractors, and the 100% failure rate of the various products carrying the Trump name were well documented during the election. The unwillingness of banks to loan him money, and his post-2004 reliance on Russian investors somewhat less so, but it was still out there. New Yorkers knew him has a preening and garish celebrity who loved the media attention in a way that genuine power-brokers typically avoided. Only recently did the New York Times compile the complete picture -- many of the pieces already public record -- to show Trump was a liar, a cheat, and probably criminally fraudulent: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/10/02/us/politics/donald-trump-tax-schemes-fred-trump.html More recently, a profile of Mark Burnett makes a good case that Donald Trump was a C-list celebrity who got a complete television makeover in order to star on The Apprentice, and it's this character that Americans elected.

  3. If he does there are already a couple HB members in his camp. I'm so heartbroken to see some of you interested in him after what we've been through for 2 years. Please, please dig in to what he is saying - it's got zero substance. Zero. This is truly a vanity project and America can't take 4 more years of that, regardless of the party affiliation (or lack of) associated with the candidate. You are smart people. I know last time we debated the value of a vote, and in some situations how voting for the "lesser of two evils" and that got us this frickin' mess. Your vote counts, and you have to think beyond simplistic "he says what I like". Those that said a vote for Jill Stein or Gary what his name were not wasted were proven wrong. This a$$hat is going to do the same thing - don't fall for it. The biggest supporter of this man and his campaign so far? Steve Schmidt. Yes, that SS. The one that has so eloquently spoken up against Trump, the one who dramatically left the Republican party after a lifetime of service because of Trump. The one that handpicked and supported Sarah Palin as VP candidate for John McCain and took the man's presidential aspirations down the tube. Yet this choice may be worse than Palin, and one has to wonder his motivation. Do you trust the man who one could argue turned the tone on politics into what it is today? Palin became the tv darling because of her catch phrases and personality, not because of her knowledge or ability or history of experience. And ultimatley her absolute lack of appropriateness for the role took the race away from an otherwise qualified, deserving man. Wealth does not equal intelligence, or an understanding of governing. Wealth does not necessarily come from being a good business man/woman (see current POTUS). Being a good business man/woman does not mean someone will make a good leader. Wealth does however breed ego, and an ability to surround oneself with people who support your thoughts no matter the content. Wealth does seem to give some the security to assume the best in someone - god knows why. This man is an asinine joke. And he's preying on the American people with this joke of a candidacy.

A lot of quickness at the WR positon overall. Chart didn't even show Miles Jones or Mazour. The interior of the offensive line will be the biggest storyline to follow for the offense this off-season. Does Bland sign and start? Can Jurgens get PT as a Freshman at Center or does Will Farniok step up? For playing a 3-4 we have a ton of depth at DE. Not sure if Carlos will stay at NG or not. Can Darrion be a starter as a grad transfer? We have a lot of kids who will get PT at LB if I had to guess. Will be interesting to see who comes out of the pack. A lot of discussion on who will be our two safeties this year. I really liked Jones out of HS. D Will and Dismuke with the most PT so far.

  16. The currently partisan and inefficient government, perhaps. Previous governments that actually pursued social engineering on a vast scale, not necessarily for a profit motive but nevertheless with the cooperation and profit of corporate America, yes. Churches and charities do some incredible work to help the underclass and at-risk. Corporations pump billions into grants, charities and initiatives. But left to our own devices, too many powerful entities will prey on the weak to the benefit of the few. Obviously the federal government can't totally prevent that --- and is often compliant -- but I can't envision this more efficient and effective method of which you speak.

  17. Marlon Lucky. He gets lost in the shuffle because he was a Callahan guy, and three of the guys that followed him (Helu, Burkhead, and Abdullah) were three of the best in program history. The guy was pretty darn productive w/ 2400 rushing yards, and 1400 more receiving. 26 TDs. Edit: To give you an idea of how close he was in production to the three I mentioned (Ameer was in a class of his own): Abdullah - 5278 scrimmage yds - 46 TDs Burkhead - 3836 scrimmage yds - 35 TDs Helu Jr. - 3905 scrimmage yds - 28 TDs Lucky - 3772 scrimmage yds - 26 TDs

  19. If Schultz really wants to do everything possible to remove Trump from office then he will join a party and go through the primary process. I understand that he doesn't line up real well with either party right now but if he truly thinks that running as an independent is going to remove Trump from office he's not smart enough for the job. HOWARD SCHULTZ, FMR. STARBUCKS CEO, INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT: I've spent the last almost 40 years building the kind of company which we serve people, 100 million customers a week. We employ almost 400,000 people. I’ve spent my entire career building consensus, creating imagination and innovation and working well with people on both sides of the aisle. President Trump to me is not the litmus test for the presidency and not the litmus test for what I'm going to try and do. What I will say is I'm going to do everything I can to remove President Trump from office.

  20. Not at all fighting against anyone based on party affiliation - content bro. Intent, experience, what the guy is saying should be enough. The only party issue is that when it comes time someone like this, who has about zero chance of winning will only disrupt and create a situation where votes cast for him will impact outcomes, and as we've seen (going back to Perot and the most recent example who is sitting in DC right now with only 3 things on his agenda today from 11:45 until 4pm, tweeting about last nights Fox newscast) not always in a good way.

  21. Listen. I'm sorry the Nebraska fan base rightly thinks your former coach sucks. He's a really nice guy, which to be frank, is why he's lasted this long. We all liked him, and wanted it to work, but it just hasn't. He's had more than enough time to get the job done, and he's failed. Simple.

  24. As we all know, guys on this roster are going to have to take the next step, make that next jump, etc. Adrian has to make that jump and be in the top 5 of that qb discussion nationally. Our returners on O-line have to make that jump into all 1st team Big Ten caliber. Maurice needs to become a superstar, and believe me he is more than capable of being one of the best all around players in college football. He is rare. Jaron Woodyard, Mike Williams, and Jaevon McQuitty need to grab the bull by the horns and do something. Miles Jones needs to break out, and become the Adrian Killins of this Offense. Jack Stoll- Time to be one of the best TE's in the country. On Defense The twins need to play at DE, and have to become all Big Ten DE's (They most certainly have the ability). Damion Daniels has to take a big step in becoming a force. All Four Quarters, and we will all see how good he is. Ben Stille has had time to get used to the extra mass, now its time to add 10 more lbs, and come off the edge quicker. Honas and Colin Miller have to be sharp now. No excuses Mo Barry needs to fine tune the small things like angles and tackling in space. Tyrin Ferguson- stay healthy Caleb Tannor- Let's be real. It's time to become a star. Deontai Williams, become the DUDE of that secondary and get the defense down. Marquel Dismuke needs to decide whether he wants to be a guy and do everything the right way. Cam Jones and CJ Smith, get your bodies right, and learn. You will earn your time if you just do those things. JoJo- stay healthy and you will flourish. Dicap- get your speed back, and take your body to the next level. Lamar Jackson- master the art of being a cover corner. Also you're 6ft 3in 215 lbs. if you hit someone going full speed, chances are, they will go back and not you. Cam Taylor- Take that next step and force the staff to increase your snaps to 25-30 a game. Braxton Clark- Work your butt off in the weight room and see where that potential takes you. Last thing, Nebraska can make a big jump if they can have incredibly efficient Special Teams. I had a lot of coffee this morning and I am fired up.

  25. There are caught all the time, but they have little accountability. https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=3264 Example 1: They only use 40% of revenue toward operating benefits. There is no repercussions for such a waste of money other than, don't give them more money. Which obviously hasn't worked to the tune of $15 million a year. Government Example 2: https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2017/10/graham-cassidy-states-federal-efficiency/541599/ Charity here is more than 60% less effective than the federal government. Example 3: A great charity by all measures, still less effective than the social security administration at its job. https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=3260

  26. And a wall will never stop this type of activity. Its so stupid. Know what always beats a wall? A driver with proper documentation in a vehicle at a port of entry. I'd venture to guess 99% of the drugs coming across the southern border would not be the least bit deterred by a wall. Planes, trains and automobiles(and boats) > steel slats.

  27. “At a more local level” does not answer the example problem I used. If Iowa pollutes the river and it affects both Nebraska and Iowa, who’s going to voluntarily pony up the $ to fix it? Probably neither. I bet Nebraska just starts polluting more. The people who tend to be the most distrustful of government seem happy to trust mega corporations to not harm anyone and to police themselves. They seem happy to let the country be an oligarchy.

  28. But it also gets to the nefarious level of charities. What if I have money, don’t want to be taxed, and set up my own crappy charity to serve my own purpose (think Zuckerberg)? I don’t care about the effectiveness of the dollars used and you as a citizen can go use a third-party vetting source to show how s#!tty my charity is. I have still successfully not paid taxes to benefit society in a public level of accountability AND not benefited society. Charities can be a good thing, wealthy peoples use of them isn’t always beneficial as a whole.

  33. I don't even think it was really about wanting money, they were hoping this lawsuit would start the conversation about the other ways schools make money off of athletes. I wish we had the game back, but it's really EA's fault. People would have requested accurate rosters none stop if the game released with randomized ones, but they'd still be making bank. And now anyone can create rosters and share them for free, so we could still have accurate rosters without the players likenesses being monetized. Hopefully this getting wrapped up opens the door for the game to come back, but I don't think it did what Keller and the others hoped. Most people I know just really want the game back, and whether it's fair or not to the athletes. That's just not true. They occasionally had major errors like the wrong skin color for random individuals, but height, weight, home state, and attributes were all modeled on the real players. They randomized the city within the state and left the names off to try and claim it's not the players' exact likenesses, but especially considering the number of players they were very accurate. In the later games even their equipment like helmet style and facemask were what the really player wore.

  39. Schultz sucks, IMO. I was glad to see that guy rip him for helping Trump the other day. Suddenly every billionaire with zero political experience thinks they can run on running the country like a company and we should just vote for them? Personally I'd much rather have Schultz economic policy of fiscal restraint and trying to get the debt taken care of now in good times rather than the massive irresponsibility of Trump's tax plan... but both Schutlz and Bloomberg seem to gawk at the idea of restoring our income taxes to historical norms. This naturally requires asking the wealthy to pay a bit more. They've gotten such a sweet deal under Trump this really isn't a radical idea. Schultz honestly seems to have no actual policy ideas he can espouse beyond fiscal conservatism. The only other things I've heard from him is how our politics is broken and how both sides are failing us with no specifics. I get that's how you have to frame things to run as an independent, but it seems incredibly lazy to mete out blame to "both sides" equally for where we're at. I do think whatever Dem wins will have to shift back to the center, though, so that's good for you. Unless it is indeed Bernie. Then all bets are off!
