  2. I don't understand the "this offense doesn't work in the Big Ten" stuff. It's already proven it has; his first year when he two good receivers and a good back and an experienced line the offense was ranked top 25 nationally and moved the ball on a lot of good defenses (with a true freshman QB). There have needed to be some tweaks as any good coach would make to a new situation, but the offense's lack of success the past couple years has been far more about not having skill position players who would start at many other B1G schools than it has about any sort of scheme or player archetype. And you need all sorts of backs and receivers who are good at different things to be a successful offense. Bigger receivers were a glaring need so they've been the priority, but we're also still recruiting a lot of small fast-as-hell type of guys.

  4. Good Lord, I counted at least nine baldfaced lies in that letter not the least of which is "and we know America is at it's best when the people decide their destiny, not politicians in Washington. Their voice is our vote". And yet he supports the Big Lie and the man who fostered it.

  5. I don't know if any team messes up as much as we do. One good play, then a false start, a 5yd pass in the flat followed by a sack, INT, holding call or fumble. I'm sure we've had some great plays called but we'll never know cause we couldn't get out of our own way. Until players start accepting accountability for the dumbs things occurring, it's not going to change.

  6. This is the dumbest line of crap I've seen and it's getting repeated ad nauseum. Nebraska's current unemployment rate is what 2.9%? Small business in Nebraska hasn't been able to fill open jobs for years, and its because of brain drain and low wages that make Omaha, Lincoln, and other states more lucrative for employment. Pay more quit chasing away immigrants that will work for your crappy wages, and you'll fill those jobs.

  7. I think Coach Frost has figured it out a bit that the BIG is a much different animal than he saw at UCF and Oregon. It's a much more physical conference. He has pivoted quickly and gone after bigger players. At the end of the day, like others have pointed out, the scheme wont matter at all if we cant stop beating ourselves. Turnovers, untimely penalties and awful special teams- all the markers for poorly coached teams have to be improved upon in a significant way. I'm a fan of Coach Frost, love his passion and attitude. He inherited a hot mess, but he needs to clean a lot of this up- it's on his shoulders now.

  8. Personally, I kind of hope they go through with it and remove her. I think people don't realize that she is a true conservative, but she obviously didn't drink the Trump Kool-Aid like so many others in DC. I am not a Dem, and no longer a registered Rep, but I am a lot closer to being a D than all the craziness that Kevin and the rest of the leftover GOP has tried to pull since November. I would really like to see a new, 3rd, alternative. Maybe Liz can start that.

  12. Seems like a significant leap there based on what I said... that, or I'm not following/understanding your response. My point is that wages have not increased at a rate commiserate with cost of living and overall life expenses in several industries. There are people graduating college making the same starting salaries their parents did 20-30 years ago, especially in certain industries. There are many employers turning significant profits while simultaneously whining about being unable to hire reliable employees at $10/hour, and I happen to know someone who falls in the latter category. Not saying it applies to all situations and circumstances, but the fact that employees have wizened up to this and are finding more profitable ways to make a living is obviously not a good thing for those employers.

  14. This could be put into any of a number of threads. But the BIG LIE is all about disinformation. If we were in another time, I'd say 1930s would be the most appropriated place to put the GOP at this point. As the Nazis supported all of the big lies of Hitler, including the Night of the Long Knives, the GOP believes the lies of an equally emotionally small, mentally damaged man. Blind, cult like loyalty leads to death and eventually national ruin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_of_the_Long_Knives https://apnews.com/article/michael-pence-donald-trump-election-2020-government-and-politics-0c07947f9fd2b9911b3006f0fc128ffd

  16. I gotta admit, if the one invading marauder that the D.C. police had shot had been black, I would have to rethink my reaction. But that didn't happen. But you gotta admit, Devo, Fox News and other Republican apologists almost broke their necks looking the other way when the insurrectionists smashed one cop's head in a door, attacked another cop with an American flag, and literally took a s#!t on the floor of the U.S. Capitol Building. Not to mention threatening to kill members of Congress and at the very least physically stop the certification of the Presidential election per the explicit wishes of the President of the United States. There's plenty of hypocrisy to go around, but if you want to compare circumstances it's not that close.

  17. I think way to much is made of this because people don't like the results. It is way more about having the athletes to run the offense than it is about changing what type of offense is run. Our offense is not that much different than what Ohio State runs. Are they having to adjust to the B1G? Our offense isn't a lot different than what Penn State runs (though it wasn't as effective last year). Are they having to adjust to the B1G? Our offense isn't a lot different than what Indiana, Purdue, or Minnesota run. They are pretty competitive in the B1G. The problem isn't that the offense won't work in the B1G. It has been shown that it will work. Other teams have shown that it will work. We were a very respectable #25 in the country in total offense in Frost's first year here - when he still had enough Pelini recruits left to field a legitimate B1G offense. We should have been absolutely terrible that first year before he could adjust anything if the problem was he needed to adjust to the B1G. The problem is we didn't recruit one complete set of offensive players in a four-year span. We only recruited two WRs that contributed in a five-year span. We only recruited one serviceable RB in a four-year span. We only recruited three legitimate OL in a four-year span (maybe four if Sichterman pans out) and one of those started out as a TE. You simply can't strike out that much and expect to field a legitimate Power 5 offense. Frost does carry a little bit of the blame for not turning it around a little faster but he was hindered by some bad luck (or whatever you want to call it). He managed to pull two RBs who were legitimate talents in two weeks in Washington and Bell but both turned out to be head cases. Then it definitely hurt that he struck out on WRs in his first full class. The rest of his first full class looks to be filling in nicely, it's just taken them awhile to get on the field. Wan'Dale was a legitimate WR but he clan wasn't patient enough for the rest of the offense to catch up. Johnson and Thompkins still have possibilities at RB. Piper and Benhart were already starters last year and Banks looks to be in the mix this year. Plus McCaffrety was a great chance to take on the heels of Martinez. But all of those guys were only into their second year here last year and didn't get anything resembling a normal off-season. That's basically as many contributors out of one class - in two years here - as we got out of the previous four combined. Frost had to change his offense because of the personnel he had. UCF led the nation in deep throws in 2017. That's been severely lacking the last two years because we haven't had the receivers to make it work. And when you aren't a threat to throw it down the field, there's not much room to open up everything else. So Frost definitely has adjusted his offense. But not because of the B1G. Hopefully it's back closer to what it's supposed to look like this year.

  22. If you want to go strictly by what the published depth chart said, then sure Oz wasn't too far down. The point Mav and others are making is that in reality, Oz was in fact considered 3rd in terms of top backs by Held and Co. as evident by how much playing time he got. If Oz was really a co #1, then he wouldn't have been well behind Bell and Mo the first few games. The published depth chart is one thing, what really matters in terms of the true depth chart is how much PT you get.

  23. I'm wondering if Cheney doesn't know more about the Giuliani investigation than anyone realizes. I'm not sure why she would but she's a politician and has made the calculous that she's going to stand up against the wave of overwhelming Trump support among her constituents when very few other Republicans have. She's either ethical enough to toss her career on the trash heap or she's getting out ahead of what's going to come from whatever is going on with Giuliani.

  26. Eh, depending on how you want to semantic "when [they] arrived on campus", he was the third or fourth best back we had. Because of injuries and head cases, he ended up getting the job and (literally) running with it. And kudos to him for taking advantage of the opportunity. But he was most definitely not our most talented back.

  28. That’s beside the point I was trying to make. We all know Riley’s rushing O sucked. But in 2018 Ozigbo was our best back when the current staff arrived on campus. Not buried in the depth chart, as was insinuated by @uberism . Held may be good at developing players and he may not be. This will be the season he can show us. And I hope he and his RB room shines. Then we all can put this debate about his coaching ability to bed. Because we know he can recruit.

  38. I think this is only true in that he was "going after bigger OL" than Riley did. He was always recruiting huge OL. Bryce Benhart was in his first class at 6-9. So were Banks (6-7), Fritzsche (6-7) and Lynn (6-6). That's pretty much been his MO since he got here. I think this could be true but I also think a lot of it is just different than what Riley recruited. Frost's first class of Chase, Nance and Houston were known for their speed but it's not like they were Wan'Dale's size either. They were all 6-0 or 6-1. Not huge but not small either. They were recruiting David Bell (6-1) pretty hard. They were after Charles Njoku (6-5) really hard. Also Marcus Washington (6-2). We had a bunch of offers out to 6-3 or 6-4 guys. Just because we didn't land any doesn't mean we weren't after them. It might be more of a focus because we haven't had any of them but guys like Will Nixon are still going to have a place in this offense. Again, I don't think this is as much of a change as you're making it out to be. He's always recruited different kinds of backs. In the limited time he had in the 2018 class he got one speedster (Washington, 190) and one bigger back (Bell, 200). The next year it was again one a fast back (Johnson, 173) and a big back (Mills, 227) plus one in the middle (Thompkins, 195). Same in 2020 with Morrison being more of a speed back and Scott being the power lifter checking in at over 200 pounds.

  39. I can mow the lawn. Let me back up... My 24 year old Toro decided to quit working Saturday morning. I skipped mowing last weekend so the lawn was quite a few days past needing to be cut. It's an older style where you pull the handle back to get the blade turning. But now the slightest resistance would kick out the blade clutch and nothing. So I tore it apart and found the blade brake idler pulley bearing was gone. I mean totally destroyed. Literally only one ball from the bearing remained in the pan below it. Ran all over town Saturday morning and couldn't find the correct part. So I went out and bought the Toro 60v battery powered mower I've been thinking about. It is so sweet. Very light, has the Personal Pace drive that makes it go whatever speed you walk. Much quieter and won't require any gas. It pushed so easy, didn't even feel like I was mowing. Like it a lot. Oh I ordered the pulley I need from Amazon and when it arrives I'll fix the old gas mower as that thing has been nothing but reliable. It still starts on first pull everytime, even in the spring after sitting all winter. Not sure if I'll keep it as a backup, give it to one of the kids or sell it. But I definitely will be using the 60v mower from here on out.

  43. No it isn’t. Millennials are worse off financially on average than their parents were at their age. That doesn’t mean no millennials are better off than their parents. I was born in the 80s and make a lot more than my parents did at their highest but that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the difference between a stat and an anecdote.

A whole generation of people who are crippled with student debt, cant afford to purchase their own homes, and have to pay $5000 to have one child + unbeleivable cost of child care = not starting a family. And its only going to get worse with cost of education, cost of healthcare, cost of child care all increasing year after year.
