  1. Last weekend, I was looking through a Sports Illustrated from last fall that was still on my desk. There was an article about Josh Allen in there. I was going to post the one portion but didn't get to it. It basically said he was tough to evaluate at Wyoming because of the lack of talent around him. Now you can see what he can do. Definitely made me think of Martinez.

  2. If you were to do a patriotic montage of America, showing school children, interstate highways, scientific innovations, national parks, the Hoover Dam, families picnicking on a weekend, and anything with a semblance of ethnic diversity, you'd have to give some credit to what is now being called "far left" thinking.

  4. Not sure I follow? Archy made a valid point. This was a horrible mistake by a member of law enforcement. This had absolutely nothing to do with "gun reform" for the average gun owner, who cannot/do not own tasers and are not trying to apprehend criminals.

  5. COVID-19 has been more deadly in Florida than reported, especially in rural counties, study shows Florida is undercounting COVID-19 deaths, per new report It probably won't surprise anyone who has had to live through the state's lackadaisical response to the ongoing global pandemic, but it bears stating plainly: Florida is undercounting COVID-19 deaths. That's the conclusion reached by a new report published in the American Journal of Public Health. The paper projected average deaths over six months in 2020 using historical data. It then compared that number to the a

  6. Agreed. And as much as a Husker fan loves to see a QB diving/stretching for extra yards with contact, he just can't fumble the ball like he did in that Rutgers game. Way better to just go down and live to see another down or another possession instead of coughing up a turnover. I'm in the camp that believes Martinez doesn't have nearly as many weaknesses as a lot of fans think he does heading into year 4 - except for the fumbles. Just turn that around and he's a good QB.

  7. All around, it is a horrible situation. Anyone watching that bodycam footage can sympathize with the officer. It was a s#!tty situation and she was, as she thought, on a training run, not in a life-and-death situation. Now a guy is gone and she lost her career, and she has to live with that for the rest of her life. There's no good outcome here. It's a damned hard job and often thankless, and if you screw up there's ten thousand people marching in the street pissed off about it.

  8. Yes this is correct, we are taught to shoot center mass due to our percentage of hits goes way down in a critical situation. We also teach our officers to shoot until the threat is no longer a threat. Not necessarily to kill someone although that's the result in officer involved shootings from time to time. As far as her mistaking her firearm for a TASER it's unacceptable and I agree it never should've happened, but this HAS happened in law enforcement before across the country and there IS a "reasoning" behind it, it seems, and it has to do with how the officer was dealing with s

  10. I just believe that if you are a law abiding citizen you should be able to have firearms....if that means more cool if that means the same current amount also cool, if that means less cool too. I will leave it up to the individual to decide if they want to carry their legal firearm. 60 percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they knew the victim was armed. Forty percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they thought the victim might be armed. Felons report that they avoid entering houses where people are at home because

  12. In fairness, right or wrong, fleeing to avoid arrest greatly enhances an individuals likelihood of being shot. Had he not made the decision to flee, it is highly likely he would not have been shot. So he does bear some responsibility for making that decision. That said, the shooting still should never have happened.

  13. I think we haven't really seen it on the field because, for the most part, it simply hasn't been there. Spielman was a solid player but not a game-changer. Robinson is a very good player but isn't fast enough to make the big plays. Andre Hunt was going to be a major contributor before he got himself kicked off the team. Manning was supposed to provide a lift last year but couldn't put it together. And the other guys were really young/new last year and didn't have the usual off-season to get up to speed. Martin wasn't eligible until mid-season. The media guys thought Betts was probably h

  14. With a taser, presumably you have to aim for center mass to make sure you have as much opportunity to hit the target as possible. And I'm with @knapplc; there's no excuse for a 20+ year member of a force, one who was responsible for training other officers, to not know the different between where her service pistol is located at on her hip, and where her taser is located.

  16. I have to say that I don't agree with this. I'm not for law enforcement not carrying a weapon. So, I don't see how getting rid of civilian guns would affect this particular situation. Now.....better training? Sure.

  18. I mean call it whatever you want. In Germany, people pay premiums for non-profit private health insurance. It is not tied to employment, which makes it universal to purchase. There are limits on how much an individual person pays for healthcare services. I believe the most a person pays for pharmaceutical drugs is $200 a year. These insurance companies give incentives to people to remain healthy and utilize preventative care appointments. Nobody is financially ruined. Everyone has healthcare. Thats the way it should be.

  20. Weird how going by age (which is the single biggest risk factor) would somehow be racist? Hint....it’s not. check out the daily Covid-19 related deaths in FL. Lowest since July I believe. Even after the spring break media created apocalypse. You can tell a potential 2024 run by DeSantis scares the media and Democrats by all the attempts to discredit him and coincidently they all fall flat from lack of truth, eveidence, and bad narration. No lack of effort though by media.

  21. Then stop punishing people financially when it happens like they commited a crime. Insurance companies shouldnt be allowed to deny claims. Premiums, deductibles and out of pocket maximums should be based off someones income and it shouldnt be tied to employment. There I just made a system similar to Germany that isnt free, but still protects people when they get sick.

  22. I'm guessing not a lot different. Frank (and his aging assistants) weren't keeping up. Unless we transitioned to Turner Gill (and probably even at that) we were going to move away from the traditional Nebraska option at some point. I don't know of any college still running it. So at some point we were bringing in a different system. That being said, the zone read is basically the modern option. So we're still using a lot of the same concepts. It just looks different.

  23. I have to think that part of Frost’s attitude towards the WRs is that he finally has guys like Betts, manning, Brown and others that have finally been in the program long enough to know what they are doing and look good. These are guys that should be stretching the field and making the offense better. it’s exciting.

  27. My seats are right down the sideline. Martinez has run out of bounds several times, as we have had that discussion in our section as the old timers want him to not run out of bounds. I will say Martinez takes things on himself & tries to do do much when the offense is not moving the ball.

  33. It's a culture issue. A bunch of peer countries in Europe have largely unarmed police forces, yet they're able to perform their duties. The difference is America's addiction to guns. We'd have to solve that issue before cops can do their jobs without firearms.

  36. Fleeing to avoid arrest shouldn't result in a person's death. Just like in a high-speed pursuit the police will slow down & back off, "live to fight another day," as it were, shows that shooting something - anything - at this person was not the best solution here. That a taser, or in some instances a gun, is a primary go-to choice for America's police force is a problem. That training led to this guy's death.

  40. I think that needs to be clarified when discussing it because of how stupid Americans are when it comes to the term. We have a s#!t ton of people who think Biden is going to turn us into a Socialist country, which is laughably stupid. I’d also argue that it still isn’t accurate unless you are speaking only of modern times. We’ve been a lot further left in policy before.

  41. Nebraska didn't lose what made them Nebraska by going Ohio State lite. That is just a stupid lazy take. Nebraska lost what made them Nebraska long before that and it had nothing to do with the B1G conference or trying to be tOSU lite. As far as a good running game, sound defense, forcing turnovers, etc......well, duh. It sure is easy to take pot shots on a program that is struggling. I know, we've been able to do it seemingly forever with CU . If this peon wanted to rub salt in the wound, he should just focus on the 2001 debacle in Boulder as being our program's turning

You need national-championship-level field generals, NFL-caliber quarterbacks. But the fastest, surest way to raise the floor is the same now as it was when Bill McCartney figured it out four decades ago: Run the ball, play defense, force turnovers, good things happen." Nebraska wasn't just happy winning 6-8 games and making Bowls. Nebraska was trying to hold on to their national title level status. Being happ
