  1. Rahmir only averaged 3 yards a carry. 7 other rb's and WR's averaged more. The 3 QB's averaged more. You also have to ask your self how did he grade out on plays and what was his pass pro like. IMO I think saving a guy for a 5th year when he is not ready makes sense to me. I think the potential rewards outweigh the risks. Of course you have to get input from the guy to see if they are okay with it. I look forward to seeing how he develops.

  2. I actually think a lot of people here and everywhere genuinely want to hear from you. We don't get it. We don't understand what's going on right now. I've been holding the "few bad apples" and "who will you call when YOU get robbed" narrative my whole life, and am now trying to impart it to my teen, but everything I'm seeing from the footage, from first hand reports, and from statements directly from police unions only validates the really dark suspicions that this has always been worse than I thought. Yeah, there are some uplifting stories about good police departments reaching out to their communities, but there are very few on-the-record statements from the "good cops" willing to say the martial law approach is not who we are.

  4. I'm not a fan of Trump, but in what way is this bad? People getting back to work or 401k's recovering is a good thing for the country. I've never understood the whole "nose despite your face" mentality. Root for America as a whole to succeed. Not everyone's voting decisions are tied to those two metrics.

  5. Whoa, I'm just a simple cop and the answers to those questions should probably be answered by someone smarter than me! Community Outreach programs are a long process and don't seem to be having the desired effect that we'd like and obviously it's not something that happens overnight. Somehow we have to come up with a program that gives us more of a result on a faster timeline that has more understanding with it. Sometimes I feel like ALOT of police departments do programs because they feel like they have to or so they can say that they're doing a community program. You have to WANT to do that as a police department and be genuine about it or it kinda falls flat. The community has to WANT to be involved too and do things better on their end as well. Unfortunately culture changes aren't something that'll happen overnight either. You have to have the right leadership in place with the right mindset that can capture the officers attention and gain their trust for them to get behind you as a leader. Then somehow you have to cultivate that leadership to continue in your lower command staff once you leave as a Chief. We have too many "bosses" in law enforcement instead of leaders. Leaders effect change more efficiently rather than it being ordered by bosses. The wrong officers often times get promoted for the wrong reasons rather than for their leadership potential. We need to inspire the officers around us and not allow them to lose that inspiration SOMEHOW! We need to do a better job of taking care of our officers. I don't mean that the way you're taking it, but this job changes you. It just does, you can't see the things we see, the things we deal with, without it changing you psychologically. We're human beings, we aren't machines, we can't be programmed to deal with things and that's the end of it. Our profession is dealing with mental health issues from the effects of seeing the things we see and what society thinks of us. So officers sometimes turn into the monsters they hunt unfortunately. The culture of law enforcement doesn't allow you to really speak out in the open if you're dealing with something serious. Some of us are wired differently so we can handle some of things better than others, but it all eventually adds up and it's called cumulative PTSD and it's a problem. I'd like to see us expand the mental health care aspect for officers. Require them to see mental health professionals 3 or 4 times a year so we can see problems before they come up later down the road with a huge situation where an officer just snaps. Lastly, getting some of the bad ones out will happen through attrition. The problem we are having is recruitment of new officers. People simply don't want to do this job anymore. When I first got into law enforcement you'd have 700 people apply for 18 positions so you were lucky if you got hired. Now..............we might have 30 people apply for 2 positions IF we're lucky. I think this is a HUGE thing for us to overcome and I don't think anyone has found a tried and true method that's going to work. Unfortunately hiring standards are being lowered across the country to hire folks to be officers that have no business being officers to be frank. We can't lower our standards or some things are only going to get worse!

  6. Why didn't any of those cops help that man or confront the coward who pushed him to the ground. If you watch the video you can clearly see that one of the officers wants to help, but he's quickly pushed away by one of his colleagues. My only guess is they were given STRICT orders by their commander of EXACTLY what they'll be doing and if they stray from that they'll be disciplined and/or fired for not following orders. I do NOT agree with pushing that old man and I'm NOT okay with what I witnessed in that video. Terrible to watch. Why didn't those other three officers stop Chauvin from killing George Floyd. 2 of the 3 officers were rookie cops with just a few days on the force and were in field training. They had graduated from the academy already, but probably didn't really know how to do the job. From my understanding one of the officers mentioned several times that they needed to reposition Mr. Floyd and their Field Training Officer, Chauvin, refused to do so. So my guess is they thought he knew what he was doing, he's a 19 year veteran officer so who are they to question the "choke restraint" technique that the Minneapolis Police Department has in their policy and procedures, in their minds. I ran an experiment last night with one of our rookie officers who's in field training. I told him I didn't want a political answer, I wanted an honest answer. I asked him what he would do if this situation happened here and he said, "I might say something, but if my field training officer says, we're not doing something, I'd probably back off!" I asked him why and he said, "because I don't know what I'm doing and I'm assuming my field training officer does so who am I to question them." It was interesting to see and something I'll be keeping in mind moving forward as I'm in charge of training for my department. I did advise him of the correct way to handle this and to never stand by while another officer does something that in his gut he thinks is wrong. Why do other cops witness bad behavior like an officer shooting reporters with rubber bullets and do nothing to stop it. I can't really answer this question, I don't know if it's a culture thing or if they're getting caught up in the moment thing, and I suppose it really is up to how each situation went down. I can tell you that during training with rubber bullets you are told to not shoot in the head as that is a huge no no. Why when my burglar alarm went off two years ago (false alarm) did it take the Omaha Police 32 min to respond, but when a "help an officer' call goes out, Cops seemingly come out of the woodwork and are all over the place. You'd have to ask OPD that one, my guess is they were on other calls as they're a fairly busy PD, as far as officers coming out of the woodwork for an officer needing assistance, we get ALOT of false burglary alarm calls, we don't get false officer needing assistance calls, so while that's not an answer you may want to hear, it's the reality of it. We get lulled into "it's just another false alarm call" from time-to-time unfortunately. Why did the first responding OPD officer to the Von Maur Shooting refuse to go in alone, citing a then dept policy of waiting for backup. A couragous Douglas County Deputy then went in on his own, because people needed help--Police depts need more of those guys. In reference to active shooters, it's a nationwide standard to NOT go into a building alone as an officer to deal with an active shooter. Now we tell the officers they can go in by themselves if they choose to, but no one is expecting them to as active shooter situations are such an unknown and stressful thing to deal with you really need two officers to deal with that. Sounds like the first officer was doing what he was trained to do, and the second officer was doing what he was born to do. I'm an active shooter instructor and while I tell my officers no one expects you to go in alone, I also tell them, "I'd rather die a hero trying to save lives than live and be known as a coward because I hesitated"

  10. Pretty good article. Well written with some very valid points. I can see how the LE career can just weigh on oneself. I hope you’re not making career changing decisions just based on HB or other social media influence the past couple of weeks. Although I would understand how current events play into it. I work with nurses on a daily basis at my job ,probably more than any other profession, and I’ve always thought that although there are lots of good nurses, the truly great ones are like gold. I could say the same thing about cops. Difficult jobs, but the potential for a positive effect on others is extraordinarily great. Anyway, I’ll stop rambling now. Thanks again for your responses.

  11. I think if Rahmir were used more earlier in the season, he would have been more effective near the end of the season, when I-back depth was lacking. I know the coaches didn't expect Mo to flame out and not be available in the 2nd half of the season, but at that point in the season, they could have gone to Rahmir more and burned his redshirt. If skill players (especially RB's) are going to end up studs, they are going to go to the NFL early. My philosophy with skill players would be to get them on the field, if they can contribute.

  12. Two highly respected careers have had a chance to shine over the past couple months and put a positive image on themselves in the community: healthcare workers and police officers. One of those two stepped up to the plate and were called heroes and one crumbled under the pressure and forever tarnished their image. You can see pro-police people turn on them in this very thread. Me being one of them. I wanted to be a cop most of my life but decided to go into healthcare instead. So glad I did. And it pisses me off to no end that the police are going after medics and healthcare workers: tearing down medic tents and shooting them with rubber bullets as they try and help people. f#&% them!

  13. That trick play was 39 yards and Iowa was convinced he was running and sold out completely. No one was open the rest of the game. Yes Martinez was bad, yes he was hurt, yes the wide receivers couldn't block stationary objects, yes Wandale was hurt and Mills was the 2nd leading receiver. That is called a team loss, a miracle it was close (56 carries for 3.3 per milked the clock). Point being that was always going to be painful, no matter who played QB because of the team in general. Luke will be ready to step in but there is zero doubt that Martinez starts in September.

  17. There are over 800,000 certified cops in the US. You have posted around 300 videos of bad actions by cops...that may or may not depict the whole story of the encounter...I hardly think that is pervasive or indicative of the profession as a whole

  20. Here's an example of what I'm talking about from my perspective on this whole thing. Now I have to PROVE to you that I'm a good cop and others do?! And if I don't just up and quit I'm not a good cop at this point? And how am I supposed to up and quit in the middle of a damn pandemic when there are no jobs and pay the bills for my family?! I'll wait for suggestions on that cause I'm ALLLL ears on the suggestions!

  21. I’m a bit perplexed by that too. It’s not like Buffalo just gut unlucky with 57 bad cops. I’d say the needle is pointing to more of a systemic issue that we civilians don’t understand. Leadership? Culture? Unions?

  22. These are isolated cases. Bad? Yes, but it doesn’t make all cops bad. It doesn’t help that this stuff is pretty much on a continuous loop on cable news. In my profession I’ve come across many bad nurses as well. Like the nurse who was playing Kevorkian a few years back. There’s bad in any field.

  23. I agree that Fidone is not overrated. In fact he may be underrated. He has been my #1 target for a long time. With that said, Bollers is going to be good. If he outgrows olb they will move him indoor up. He is the type that we need. The kind of player Wiscy gets and they become a force.

  24. It’s easy for me to say, but please don’t take some of this venting or frustration people have personally. I know it’s not easy. I believe you’ve earned the respect of many on HB by answering some of our questions and giving very good insight. You certainly have to me. I have no doubt the good cops definitely outnumber the bad. I’m sure most people would agree, despite only the bad getting the spotlight now. Things are just really tense and trying for everyone now. Especially African-Americans and LEO’s, I would imagine. I truly believe things will get better. We all need each other to make it happen though.

  28. I think Frost could have managed the freshman players last year better, but even those who played still redshirted with the 4-game redshirt rule. Only a few first-year guys didn’t utilize a redshirt last season. “Burning a redshirt” wasn’t an issue in 2019. If anything, Frost could have played a couple freshmen more and burned their redshirts. Rahmir Johnson comes to mind as a guy who could have played more in the 2nd half of the season, but Frost was insistent in keeping his redshirt. He may not have been fully ready to be great last year, but I don’t know if maintaining his 5th year of eligibility was worth not playing him.

If he commits and signs then he would be the eighth player to get a scholarship to Nebraska after playing 8-Man football including Andrew Shanle (St. Edwards, 2002), Steve Kriewald (North Loup-Scotia, 2000), Josh Brown (Foyil, 1998), Scott Shanle (St. Edwards, 1998 [greyshirt]), Terry Connaely (Hyannis, 1990), Lance Lundberg (Wausau, 1989), and Dean Steinkuhler (Sterling, 1978). Every single one of those guys ended up in NFL training camps.

  33. Your posts have had an anti-police slant to them from my perspective, that's what I'm talking about. I stand by what I said and I've literally said in this thread that things need to change, we HAVE to do better! Now you're putting words in my mouth saying that I may want that to stay the same or trying to take it that direction? Not even close to the truth!

  34. Correct. I even clarified in the next post by saying f#&% the police officers that are attacking medics and healthcare workers. I said I am taking that personally because I am a healthcare worker, plus medics are suppose to be off limits in times of war. Not saying this is like war, just pointing out that there are diff rules of engagement for medical personnel.
