  1. Honestly not looking for an argument, don't have the time, but you keep believing that. The "Woke" droner class is asleep.....wait, make that a coma. Sleep on, dear people, sleep on. I am I is spot on.

  6. Moos is right on the razors edge on this. We never got any favors from the big 10 when it comes to sports, so kudos to him for pressing the envelope. Call things out for what they are, Hail Moos!

  7. That just isn't correct. It's closer to 15-17 million more yearly than 7 over the Big XII, and the Big Ten renegotiates right after the others do to push it more. The gap is going to remain for a while. Push that over a decade (150-170 million) and that's your new facility. Still think that's not a big deal? https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/report-sec-comes-in-2nd-to-big-ten-in-2019-revenue/

  8. No. Govt will solve the drinking fountain problem, it created, by trucking in thousands of recyclable bottles of water, then hiring four more people to inspect, count and inventory, sanitize and distribute the bottles to the students. then collect up the empties, haul away and save the planet, by expending lots of oil, gas, metal, plastics, emissions etc to get water to a place where water is already safe and plentiful and readily available in a convenient way. And of course, make some kids sick in a Herculean effort to prevent them from getting sick!

  9. This is government at its best! Best of intentions, publicly expressed, but never thought out and tested before mass implementation with undesired results. Typically very expensive, inefficient, ineffective and usually perpetual in duration. Normally two new problems created for each perceived problem addressed. The longer the government involvement lasts, the more permanent the indirect and ‘always unexpected’ consequences become. The marketplace by its nature responds with rational reactions in the direction of minimizing the economic fallout but often government in response thereto

  10. Having other schools closer to NU was the best part about being in the Big 8/12. I know that there are NU fans all over the country, but the majority of NU fans are in and near Nebraska. Everything in the Big Ten feels so far away. There are a lot of positives about the Big Ten, but for fans who want to go to the games and events, the Big Ten makes things very challenging. The reason that 30K NU fans (with another 10-20K outside) showed up at the CU game in Boulder is because it was close.

  13. I think anyone that gets named as President to a university system such as Ohio State has a good enough of an idea what athletics means to that University, and if they don't, they aren't fit for the job. I think it's really an issue of Sam twisting words to make some sort of point, as he is wont to do.

  18. I really feel they should have the process start over. They should have Prez's, AD's, HC's coaches listen to the Medical people. Allow AD's, coaches and Prez's have their conversations within the different Universities. Then Ad's and Presidents together for conversations. Lastly the Presidents meet to "vote." This should have been lead by the commish. No wonder the process was so fast. This isn't rocket science. I have been both an AD and the Athletic representative for a HS to a conference. This is how it is always done. The process they used is called FUBAR. The proce

  19. While the details are interesting, I don't find it a revelation Warren manipulated the internal dialog to reach the decision he supported from the outset. My curiosity is just how drunk w/power was he? Following the Power 5 Presidents meeting, the media buzz was that the outlook was "negative", the BIG & PAC would announce a decision the following day, & "the SEC was expected to follow the BIG's lead". OK, the PAC was never going to play, the BIG is announcing w/them, I wasn't even a little surprised the season was cancelled, & then pleasantly surprised

  21. Covid is real no question, but was not treated correctly at the start and some still have no clue of what is going on with it. I listen to this mask crap every single day. You do know that a cloth mask is basically useless. A paper mask does stop you from spreading the germs, but cloth does not stop it either way and adds to the danger when it is removed. You do know that Fauci stated that temperature testing was not valid. Guidelines change continuously. HCQ has been proven to work, but still is basically banned for what ever reason. Check with Dr. Harvey Risch of Yale.

  22. Even the heart of the SEC schools are all pretty close to each other. All of the newer schools to the Power 5 conferences are outliers geographically and their fans have struggled with that transition. In the long run, maybe NU fans can create their own traditions going to Big Ten cities, but the expense and time required to do so makes that challenging.

  23. College football is intimate...the non-conference and bowl games are for travel. Look at the old big ten. Take Purdue...you were 3-5 hours to play...Indiana, NW, Illinois, MSU, Michigan, Wisconsin, OSU and Iowa.

  24. I get that. I am not saying I prefer the Big 12, I am just saying the Big 12 was nice because the schools were close, and the college towns were “familiar” to Nebraska. Ames, Lawrence, and Manhattan aren’t amazing college towns, but they are a day trip for most Nebraskans. Whether it’s a football, basketball, volleyball, or baseball game, those are easy trips for fans to make. It hasn’t helped that NU has been pretty bad the past decade, so for those who do make the road trips, the long trips home sick even more after a loss.

  29. Either way, there was piss poor communication and planning across the leadership of the Big Ten, especially from Warren and university presidents, whom eventually made the call. They went with the “extreme” view on things and pulled the plug without thinking of a middle ground and trying to make alternatives work.

  33. If someone posted how all of this would be over if it wasn't for the CHAZERS and protesters...find it, show me and I will quote it and make sure they know the Karens, Freedom fighters and Olive Garder fans are also to blame.

  34. It will be impossible to ever stop making fun of CHAZ. Just like it will be impossible to ever stop making fun of the dorks that freak out about their freedom being violated because they have to wear a mask at Target. Morons need to be goofed on. Had you only brought up CHAZ and protesters I would have made fun of the Karens and the freedom fighters.

  35. I did not know this about Ford. But would it surprise anyone even the tiniest amount if Trump rushed an unproven, potentially unsafe vaccine to production solely for political reasons? He's doing the same thing right now with plasma treatment right now so he has something to talk about during the RNC this week.

  36. True but the article clearly states warren isn’t qualified for the job, because unlike other league commissioners, he has no experience in college athletics. Warren does not understand how these organizations work. All of his experience is in the nfl. So he is learning on the job at more than $2,000,000 per year. Terrible hire , but it won’t matter a hill of beans to some who will insist on carrying his water no matter how inept the guy is.

  37. This is true, the goal of any public entity is to grow larger and more powerful. I owned a compNy that did outsourced service work for our state. Most December’s were a bonanza for us as several departments had not spent their budgets. So they either made up make work projects for us or we just billed them for what They had left over and then did the work the following year. They always spent their budget because the automatic increase the next year would be based on the higher amount. My guys hated it there, the state workers were absolute expert savants on how to waste time and money. They H

  39. On this week’s Pick 6 Podcast, Sam McKewon did a good job of explaining Warren’s actions during the review process. Basically, Warren took a siloed approach to meeting with the health officials, university presidents, and AD’s. He met with them as individual groups, but never had the groups meet together to discuss. All the AD’s could have said they wanted football, but unless they have a clear line of communication to their respective presidents, then that message is going to get lost. Warren’s decision to go with that approach was a colossal failure, as it led to broken lines o
