  1. Opposing reparations might seem selfish and racist. Yet writing a check to salve your guilt seems like another patronizing and ultimately shallow gesture of liberalism. And are we talking about grievances from systemic inequity? Cause that's a looooooooooong list. Slavery wins priority hands down. Unless you stop to consider Native-American genocide. Generations of gays might tell you they were more likely to be shunned, fired, beaten, and killed without consequence than Black Americans. And what would be the price of justice anyway? Who comes up with that incredibly

  2. Colorado in 2019. I was in Folsom and watched a lousy CU team without a pulse for 3 quarters proceed to dominate the game for the last 20 minutes. Lost by 3. If the game goes another 10 minutes, we lose by 17. If it went another 20 minutes, we would have lost by 30..and so on. That was the day the wind went out of the Frost-tipped sails for me. I’ve been pretty ho hum about everything since then. If this ship gets righted...great. But I’m not expecting it anymore.

  3. 1) How would it be possible to define who gets reparations? What percent of slave ancestry qualifies? Is it a sliding scale? If you have white ancestry also do you forfeit the reparations since you are partially privileged? If the African tribe you belonged to prior to being forcefully brought over to America participated in the slave trade, or had slaves ever, do you need to directly send your reparations over to Africa to pay that debt? 2) Do families of soldiers who died in Civil War fighting to free slaves get reparations? They paid the ultimate sacrifice. Or relief

  4. Slavery was not unique to the United States. As unethical as it was, it was a worldwide issue. Reparations are grabs for political gains by politicians, and a money grab by citizens looking for a payday. There is no justice to found for slavery. All involved are long gone.

  8. It's a tough list because the worst Riley losses confirmed we weren't moving past Bo, we were plummeting back to Callahan 2007 Nebraska football. But the Frost losses might have felt worse because he was Scott Frost, and if he couldn't turn it around, who could? I think the talent question took a hit in last year's Minnesota game when a middle-of-the-pack Minnesota team down to its third and fourth stringers outplayed and out-coached the Huskers, including our Junior quarterback who had been a Heisman hopeful just two years earlier. It felt impossible to have a conversation about

  9. To me, this really isn't much different than guys who opt out of bowl games. This teams has nothing left to play for and he's already working through an injury. Might was well heal up and find a way to make some money.

  10. This is so beautiful, especially because of how many options exist off of it. There are three reads here: 1. Thor reads Mayen coming down for the dribble hand off. He has to determine if the man guarding Mayen can get there and/or if his own defender will hedge and ultimately trap him if he gets the ball. Thor then immediately clears out after denying the hand off and passing to Andre 2. Andre doesn’t give to Thor after he clears out, this may be a dummy action but we probably have a counter somewhere off it where Thor takes it and uses Andre as a screener if his man overp

  13. How much progress will be made when the discussion of reperations become one of the reagents for a Trumpist landslide in 2024? Because politically it's a losing stance. Combine it with open borders and the Dems will lose the center and independents. Sometimes you just have to be pragmatic.

  14. The offensive line situation caught everyone off guard. The fact that Frost and the staff are trying diligently to get it fixed is a reason for optimism. Frost has already had some offensive line busts that he recruited....Anderson for example....but being able to get players like Benhart and Corcoran to come to Nebraska after the seasons we've had since Pelini was fired is good recruiting. We've been undersized for at least a decade. Frost making that a priority will pay dividends.

  15. After he got benched Teddy went on a 4 game tear that rivaled anything I have seen in a Nebrasketball uniform. He elevated his play and his leadership more than I ever expected he could, I knew he had more to give but was surprised when he surpassed my expectations. He will be missed but pryor to his benching I thought he wasn't good for the team and we played better without him. Wish him the best Now we have room for Hunter....

  16. For this upcoming season I sadly expect more of the same we have seen the last three seasons. I want things to get better but I'm kind of growing tired of hearing every year is the year. I hope I'm wrong and it is a great season of 8 to 10 wins.

  17. This is a good take. There's no postseason for this team, so why risk injury when he's got a financial future to look forward to? Sucks for us, but it's the right move for him. Good luck, young man. Thanks for your time as a Husker.

  21. I think getting a conference title and BCS win would have given Pelini more leash, but after 2012 his teams had been delivering diminishing returns and his record was being propped up by winning close games in the Gary Anderson/Bill Cubit/Darrell Hazell/Jerry Kill/Hot Seat Kirk Ferentz version of the Big Ten West. His teams would not have been going 8-4 in the 2019 or 2020 versions of this division. Pelini was still delivering top 30/40ish-type teams, and maybe he'd have turned it back around with another year, but there was a football case to be made for moving on. And you can't be underwhelm

  22. I really wish the Republicans would come to their senses and move beyond Trump. But, at this point, it appears as though the party just needs to continue burning to the ground.

  25. I hope Trump does run again in 2024. People will again show up in droves to vote against him and while they're there, they may as well check the D box for Congress too. I really doubt he will, though. He'll pick a favorite candidate and push for them. At this point, I would guess DeSantis. It will be interesting to see if his influence can remain as effective with no Twitter or Facebook to spread his lies and attacks. The best voter suppression technique the R's can deploy, IMO is keeping Trump off the ballot in 2024.

  28. Maybe instead of spending her time at CPAC she could be figuring out a way to dig her state out of the bottom ten in COVID deaths. But then, that would take actual governing and that's not exactly what the GQP does these days...

  30. To my earlier point, while I cannot identify a "worst" loss from this time period, I agree that the collapse at Folsom in 2019 was a watershed moment as I really began to doubt the program's direction after. CU was lifeless for 3 Quarters with a new Coach, and still they managed to completely turn the game on us in Q4. They went on to win 5 games that season. I will say that if CU 2019 was the beginning of doubt as to the current direction, Illinois 2020 was the confirming event.

  31. Surprised, but not surprised. He was a talented scorer at times, and NU needs scorers. However, when he's not playing within the team structure, he's a liability.

  36. Not smart for someone in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s be invested in majority equities at that point in life? That wouldn’t happen with SS. That said, you are not comparing apples to apples. Why? SS is a Gov program so it can be mandated from a risk perspective. from 20’s-50’s normal diversified investing, 55’s-death low risk to no risk investing. That would be different than a private investment account that you can be as risky as you want with. So yes you are fake news with your scare tactics.
