  1. What does that quote even mean? In the real world you can go wherever you want whenever you want lol more like there are no stupid transfer rules in the real world

  2. Sanders is considered radical because this country is a$$ backwards in so many respects, and his radical label largely comes from those who profit from keeping the country a$$ backwards. His entire platform essentially boils down to ensuring a reasonable quality of life for everyone. If getting there seems radical it's because of just how far gone we are in this plutocracy.

  3. I wonder how many millions of dollars the state economy misses out on every year by having all those rest areas along I-80. Usually when people stop at a gas station to use the restroom they'll make a purchase. We hate non-Nebraskans spending their money here as much as we hate Nebraskans spending their money here. Also put a casino in that stupid arch in Kearney.

  4. I have always thought the "legal gambling is abhorrent" stance from State officials as a being a bit disingenuous... after all, here in Nebraska, I can purchase Powerball and Nebraska Pick 5 lottery tickets, buy pickle cards, play Bingo, and bet Keno...all while betting on live horse races while I get my drink on...

  6. Yep - he's worth a listen - not a Joe Rogan nut like some people, but he gives everyone a platform and he is very good at letting them tell their story. I know his interview with Bernie got like 11+ million views on youtube.

  7. I could not care less about a few bad apples booing; the race has been pretty clean to-date. We're not talking about Trump antics or his KKKampaign supporters here. All that matters is that everyone turns out to vote for the eventual nominee.

  8. I mean I watched the victory speech and you could hear some boos but most were cheers when he congratulated Buttigieg and Klobuchar. Every candidate has bad apples. Just like every fanbase has bad apples. It seems like the media likes to talk about how bad Sanders people are while ignoring all the never sanders clinton supporters.

  9. Was in CO this weekend. On Monday morning I was leaving Denver and was listening to their “Altitude Sports” radio station featuring Brett Kane (formerly of 93.7 The Ticket). Him and two other goofballs were absolutely trashing Michigan St and talking about how Mel was committed to CU. Funny how things work out.

  12. It was awesome just to hear someone talk about their vision straight forward no BS. Bernie was 100% right when he said the elections have turned to reality TV. If you are on the fence about Bernie, or think he's some time of communist please watch this. It's fine if you still don't like his plan when the interview is over - but at least hear the guy out - I think a lot of you will be surprised.

  17. I don't remember him taking plays off, he just had to play a somewhat passive role in Pelini's defense. I watched a film breakdown somewhere (I'll see if I can find it) where the guy mentioned a "knock" on Gregory was his slow reaction off the snap. But when he actually watched the film, over 70% of the time Gregory was reading the tackle - not even looking at the ball, so obviously it's going to look slow. But that's just what Pelini's D asked, and he did a really good job with it. I realize that's probably not what you're talking about with effort, but I really don't remember him loafing around at all. I do remember wondering why he wasn't just tearing around the edge wrecking QBs, but a lot of that was the style of defense. Found it, here it is! I am not this dude and don't know his qualifications, but it was a good watch if you're bored.

  18. I mean you're right, RG could be a beast in this D. But I'll just never get over all the plays I saw him give half-assed effort. When he wanted to be a disruptive force he sure could be. But when he wanted to take a few plays or a series off..... I'm not sure it was a character issue and it sure wasn't lack of ability. He just seemed to be sporadically lacking tenacity. Probably not fair to compare him to a Wistrom or Alberts but it is inevitable in these discussions.

  22. Full Stone trial team resigns. This is how dictators take control. Change the definition of right and wrong, innocence & guilt, justice & injustice. Pardons for friends and criminals, purge the honorable. Hitler's Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels would be so proud as would his Minister of Justice Franz Schlegelberger. https://apnews.com/f9addeca0df46d91442701d1420ed046

  25. I just don't get how Sanders is so radical. Our defense budget is over 600 billion per year. Student loan debt increased by 80 billion per year from 2003 to 2018. Reducing some of that is no more radical than paying 600 billion per year on defense, and I would argue it's less so. I don't know if I think all of it should be forgiven, but I see no reason why we can't pick some professions college is free for. Let's start with teaching degrees and nursing/medical degrees and criminal justice degrees and go from there. That isn't anymore radical than spending 4x more than China on our military. Considering universal health care to be a radical concept is just silly so I won't get into that.

  27. They are politicians. It doesnt matter what “party” they are in, they have the same goal, make their donors a lot of money. Just watch, if Sanders is the nominee, dem politicians will vote Trump. 100%. Because them and their donors are still making money with him in office. Its sad but its American politics for ya.

  28. I mentioned this in an old thread. I used to work for Ladbrokes, the UK gambling giant, doing ads and commercials for their local card rooms and horsetracks. They always had us show healthy young couples enjoying themselves at the tables and tracks and sampling the upscale buffet. The racetrack promoted Family Nights with special events for the kids. But one day our client -- who looked more than a little like Joe Pesci -- admitted it was mostly bulls#!t. The target customer was and always had been the gambling addict, and every local Ladbrokes affiliate knew what day the welfare and social security checks went out and marketed around it. It's a vice that really can't be banned or driven underground, but yeah....it harvests its share of human misery.

  29. I love Coach and respect his point of view on this topic. I just fundamentally disagree with it. Just because I disagree with it doesn't mean he needs to stay home. He should stand up for what he believes in. This attitude that people who disagree with you need to be silent is rotten to its core, and has given American politics a$$ cancer.

  31. I know you understand this, I've read your posts, so I'm not speaking to you directly - but I just hate this as an insult/negative. Bernie is a socialist in the sense he wants to expand to socialized medicine and socialized education. If you like your socialized roads, and socialized police force and socialized firefighters - you're a bit of a socialist as well. Are people not seeing the cost of education, prescription drugs, healthcare? Would we not better off allowing the govt negotiate a fair price for these services and passing on the savings to the American people, as opposed to stuffing the pockets of greedy corporations? I'd rather the couple hundred I drop for insurance/month go to medicare for all, and I never have to worry about spending dime on healthcare needs for my family.

  34. Coach Cook has said a few times that he'll use that as a recruiting tool, and it'll work. He'll be able to pull even more top talent here than, say, Texas or USC or even Wisconsin & Minnesota where they'll have to compete in a crowded athlete-endorsement environment. "Come to Nebraska. We love our sports, and you'll be the biggest show in town. Here's what past athletes have made in Lincoln..."

  35. Actually I did which led me to the question. I do agree we have a lot of homegrown Nebraska OL's but most seem to be interior OL. Not trying to get into an argument. Have a good day.

  37. A two drink minimum? Wait! what are the cheerleaders wearing? Speaking of attire, and since this is a practice game for the players..Why not make this a practice Blackkout for the student fans? To either get them to see ahead of time how futile it really looks, or maybe even help get it right for a real game? Might ease the bickering between the age groups on social media.

  38. Correct me if I’m wrong TG, but didn’t Oklahoma significantly cut funding for schools, because they said the projections of the gambling revenue would be enough? But then the gambling revenue was so low the schools were drastically underfunded, leading to the teacher strike a couple years ago?

  39. Sorry it’s just tough for me to focus when the goalposts keep moving. First I thought TO shouldn’t talk about legislation, then the conversation moved to alcohol and tobacco, now it’s “Eh it’s a half hour away, who cares?” What benefits? Just because a state has legalized gambling doesn’t mean it generates unmitigated revenue. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.propublica.org/article/illinois-video-gambling-some-states-waiting-gambling-windfall/amp https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-illinois-gambling-report-20190912-ga56b2vu5bcrfaobgq53iu5w3e-story.html%3foutputType=amp

  40. Zip code matters but it is not insurmountable. If Nebraska did not have the historical / brand stature and lacked the national fan base and facilities etc then the recruiting disadvantages would be much harder to overcome. But Nebraska football still has enough substance and repute with coaches and parents to find another couple bstches of good players from near and far to recover. I believe that once Frost gets that first 9 win season the tide will come back in and we’ll be back. Assuming the program stsys the course and resists the temptation - knee jerk panic - to once again try to reboot or restart. We need to stand pat and remain fully supportive and let the rebuilding proceed with all deliberate speed. Dont blink - just drive forward pedal to the metal! These coaches have the hunger and drive and stamina and the confident support of the admin to succeed. Patience !!!
