  2. Today it's paraphernalia, tomorrow it's accoutrement, it's a slippery slope.

  5. I mean to me, the first post kinda seems like you support what Trump is doing there.

  6. It always starts with paraphernalia. It's the gateway. Once you start doing paraphernalia it's only a matter of time until you move on to the harder stuff.

  9. ^^^^^ If Bo taught us anything, it was that the total amount of wins doesn't really matter too much and the same number can feel pretty mediocre or pretty great. If we go 9-3, that's obviously improvement on paper, but if we do it with losses similar to Michigan and Northwestern last year, that will be cause for concern.

  11. We didn't have an attention grabbing season that gave any indication Nebraska is back and our coaches are the real deal. I'm not sure if this makes sense but I was thinking it's possible the staff hasn't accepted a lot of commitments with the thought that if we can get off to a good start this season and make some noise then that could generate interest from higher rated recruits. The offers are out to those higher rated recruits but we need to give them a reason to consider Nebraska.

  14. It's very common. Nebraska typically gives out more than most though due to geographical difficulties. https://m.herosports.com/college-football/2019-scholarship-offers-stanford-southern-miss-ahah The SEC, ACC, and B1G all had about the same acceptance to offer ratio. You cast a wide net to start, then narrow it down based on mutual interest. If you're lucky you can be picky by the end of it all. https://m.herosports.com/recruiting/sec-college-football-offers-2019-ahah

  15. As do I, and neither do I. That's why I said above, that I think Hispanics are our best chance at carrying on American values into the future. It doesn't mean that mass immigration shouldn't cause some hesitation in that regard.

  16. Not sure if this is being discussed elsewhere on the board already and I've just missed the thread but I am wondering about the 2020 recruiting success or progress at this point. With signing date in December (most sign by then anyway), it would seem that the numbers of commits would be above the historical norms generally for most programs. I randomly looked up the 2020 numbers of offers and commits for schools such as Iowa, Georgia, Texas, Texas Tech, USC, Michigan, Wisconsin and maybe a couple others, to compare to DONU. Frost has offered a lot more than everybody else and have just three reported commits. I am most curious as to what the recruiting approach for this staff is essentially? Are we just offering virtually every possible player from around the entire country in hopes we will find enough interested prospects to get a good class? Can we really do the best job of targeting the 'right' ones that really fit our system and so on, and then give the necessary time and personalized contacts and effort it will take to lure in those very best candidates? I am not really second-guessing here as much as trying to just have a better feel for our recruiting philosophy or strategy and so on. Did they recruit at UCF with this apparent 'shotgun' approach? Anyone have any ideas on this ?

  18. So tell me then, what this does to improve assimilation? I'm sorry dude, it's nothing personal against you. But the Trump immigration doctrine is really just an utter and abject failure and it's time to start being a bit more forceful about saying so.

  19. I didn't say any of that, so don't imply that it's what I meant. I've said multiple times on here that I feel Hispanics living in the U.S. are our best shot at upholding American values in centuries to come. I've also pointed out on here multiple times that my largest (and really only) concern with mass immigration from South American countries, and Mexico, is assimilation. That should be everyone's concern.

  20. The terribly fatalistic worldview of conservatives: We've got to punch down at all the sh#thole countries to assert our dominance while also demanding they do more to alleviate us from the intense anxiety and suffering wrought by the scary brown people.

  22. There is a lot of truth to what you have stated in this thread - however it is equal to or out weighted by the fact that this staff has had 4ish years together and they have become much more efficient at running this ship. Either way, it's going to be fun to watch it play out....

  24. Good for the donor for speaking up, there are plenty of ways to spend that money in ways that might actually go toward overturning the law in AR or getting assistance to women from the state that need help now that their state is opting not to support them. I'm sure if he/she was telling folks to boycott the University, they are happy to take back the funding. And I guess it's admirable that the university (or at least trustees) feel so strongly about something and they are sticking by that. Far more an example to set than the GOP who talks morals and ethics and refuses to return funds from convicted criminals (I think they just more from Winn right? Is there a moral/ethics clause they work under at the University? I know the south is religious but didn't think state universities got involved in that stuff.

  26. You’re still lacking good reasoning for the comparison. You’re comparing our potential improvement to how much UCF improved. UCF had the same “problems” you’re pointing out about Nebraska.

  27. We're supposed to applaud Trump for threatening Mexico with a gigantic tax hike ON US because conservatives are comically afraid of brown people and obviously the answer is more border guards, walls, etc.

  29. Just a question based on my complete ignorance of the finances of college baseball: if we spend $1 million, or half a mil, or whatever on a baseball coach, assuming he is successful, is that an investment the AD would get back? I mean, $5M for Scott Frost can end up being a real a bargain if he is successful because football brings so many millions to the athletic department and the university, same with Hoiberg since Basketball also is a revenue generator. But what does the annual bottom line on baseball look like? Obviously we want to be competitive and successful, but what kind of financial impact can a good baseball coach have compared to a mediocre one?

  33. I know what you're saying. Actually my experience has been about 50-50. Have run into jackwagons there 3 or 4 times and the other 3 or 4 times nada. I kind of like going to games at Folsom, mostly because it's only 45 minutes away and the Harvest House is always a good time with so many Husker fans.

  34. Milton and the UCF offense showed a major improvement between year 1 and 2, but IMO much of the credit also goes to RBs, receivers & OL who understood the system much better and gave Frost more play calling options. This makes me think the improvement will be less at Nebraska. JD Speilman, Mo and Warner are the only experienced skill players returning, and if bad luck happens we may not have Mo, and JD could be hindered by concussions. Throw in a new center, and this offense does not have the same level of experience with Frost's offense as the UCF team did in year two.
