  1. These guys just refuse to learn it will be the same s#!t until Frost is canned. Guy is too stubborn. Besides the penalties/turnovers he is perhaps one of the worst personnel coaches in power five ball.

  3. Thank you for being sensible. I feel much the same way. It’s completely shameful that this thing got politicized by design. When Trump’s administration was working towards the vaccine it was hell no we don’t trust this and we will not submit from VP Harris and more. I’m glad the vaccines came out but why now can’t they be questioned and let people decide based on their personal situation. Let science happen. We now know Covid is not deadly to certain segments of the population, those that had it have a strong natural immunity, and there are other therapeutics to help prevent and treat it. Yet we have conflicting mis-information from Biden’s administration and a mandate that you must get injected with an experimental vaccine that studies show is not even as effective at stopping transmission as initially hoped. Further any discussion about legitimate adverse reactions or questions on the vaccine or other remedies are often censored. WTF? Just a few months ago these same people said don’t trust Trump’s vaccine? I thought Trump was the tyrant? If so why is Biden the one forcing experimental injections on people (which have harmed some people) and also threatening their jobs and businesses to comply. It was Biden who said we’ll come knock on your door! Who’s the tyrant? Say it loudly…F Joe Biden.

  4. Sir, you completely missed the point. I never said I didn't care, homes. PS. I have my card. It's on my fridge. I got vaccinated in Feb. For the record, I love all my brothers and sisters, my fam, my community. I tell them to consider getting vaccinated. And some have. But if they don't, I understand that it's a personal choice, for personal reasons and it's their body. I will not shame them, force them, fight them, yell at them if they choose not to. Neither should you or anybody else. They all wear face coverings, wash their hands, sanitize. Many of them had covid last year, and so did I. But I still got I vaxxed. I got covid again 2 months after the shots. And I still wear a mask. I had a lot to consider and think about before choosing to be vaccinated, because I had cancer removed 3 years ago. So don't give me your s#!t. And I don't care for your rudeness and hateful attitude.

  5. not exactly the same mistakes no. But I lump special teams gaffes into the same category. Our offensive line play is full of mistakes, whether that is improper pad level/leverage. Missing receivers, RB taking the wrong hole etc. Granted this was the majority of the first half and not as much as the game went on. Was that because we cleaned it up or was that because Fordham had no depth and we simply began to walk over them as any P5 school should at that point? We consistently make things look hard instead of easy. This isnt just a Frost thing but has been something that has gone on for quite awhile now.

  6. Yeah, I think we can call 3 punt return blunders by the same guy the same problem. Every punt is a different situation but one guy messing it up by making bad decisions is the same problem. If it happens again it’s not CTB’s fault, it’s the coaches fault for not making a change. Surely this team has another guy that can field punts without channeling the keystone cops.

  7. Tomorrow will be AM completing like 65% of his passes for 270 yards and a TD, rushing for 90 yards and a TD, probably with one turnover...if the Huskers win, not much will be said about another 350 yard performance...if they lose...get your crosses out because he will be crucified.

  8. The age of 90,000+ seat CFB stadiums should be over. I think 60,000 - 80,000 is the sweet spot for large colleges. When every game is on TV, and, everyone has 65" 4K TVs - colleges need to prioritize fan experience at the stadiums.

  9. If people like you were in charge we’d still have small pox, measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, diptheria, pertussis, polio, etc. THANK GOD people like you arent in charge. Thank you science for saving us from people like admo who dont give a damn what diseases are floating around. p.s get vaccinated

  10. I totally believe you and appreciate your reasoning — for both yourself and your friends who struggle with and so far have declined vaccination. That still leave me vexed by the millions of people who have decided this choice -- a COVID vaccine -- is different from the many vaccines they've taken throughout their lives, and dutifully gotten for their own kids. Some of those vaccines were also mandatory for education and employment. Some just common sense and largely unquestioned. The worst public health crisis in our lifetimes is an odd time to take a new and contradictory stand. With all due respect to personal freedom, this one just asks that if you want to go out in public, you need to respect that there's a public health crisis going on, and whether kindly folk or not, the unvaccinated are creating huge problems for the people who made a different choice.

  12. Yeah, the Illinois gaffe was obviously just thinking he could make a huge play and wanting to justify being put out there as PR1. Just plain old bad judgement in the heat of the moment. Then he slipped and compounded the situation. I really have a hard time faulting him for the Fordham muff. That ball just took a really odd bounce and it was just reaction to reach for it when it's whizzing past your head. If he would have let it go and it would have rolled 20 more yards downfield people would have been all over him for that as well.

  13. I don't think we really made any of the same mistakes. People get frustrated - which is understandable - and all of the sudden everything is "the same mistakes." No, there were mistakes but they're all different. People complained after Illinois that it's "the same special teams mistakes that we've seen for years". No, it wasn't. Our All-B1G kicker didn't miss any PATs last year. We haven't had a punt returner field the ball going into the end zone then try to throw it back out. We didn't see any of that against Fordham. It was a punt return mistake but it was a completely different situation. There are still things to be worried about. But only if you are painting with the broadest of brushes are the "the same mistakes."

  16. NFL stadiums do a much better job of making a better fan experience than college though. Premium seating, craft beer, decent food, easy access to restrooms. If I could get a fairy nectar draft and a seat back chair at memorial - I'd probably going to a hell of a lot more games.

  17. The democratic left doesn't believe the choice of ending a pregnancy is a public heath crisis. The democratic left and the republican right both agree that COVID is a public health crisis. It kind of frustrates me that the republican right doesn't want to mandate vaccines to help end a crisis, but they are for mandating pregnancy to birth to stop what they view as a public crisis. Your statement does paint one group as intellectually dishonest, but I don't think it is the side that you intended.

  20. I’m maybe not the most experienced person on tailgating but the quite a few times I’ve been in those areas I wouldn’t have guessed there were any rules at all. Cans, bottles, cups…whatever, and nobody trying to hide anything. My guess is, if you’re not being a jerk, you can probably do about whatever you want.

  21. Eh, not me. He let a punt bounce off his numbers in the second half against Iowa last year that they recovered. You can only give the other team the ball back so many times on punts before it's just flat out ridiculous to keep trotting that same player back out there that's making mistake after mistake. And I'll even double down: Frost will never have a team that contends for even just the West title if he doesn't get issues like this squarely turned around.

  24. No idea who Elder is at all but that video shows me two things. The lady should be in prison and/or beaten and so should the old dude that attacked the other old dude. That is it, period. If the Elder dude is a racist, he should be beaten as well. None of this is difficult.

  27. I haven't heard a ton of Larry Elder's work, but out of the few interviews I have listened to, I don't remember him saying anything racist. Sure he has a differing opinion on the struggles of blacks in this country, a very reasonable opinion from what I've listened to, but racist?

  30. Good Lord you couldn't have jammed more disinformation in this post if you tried. People weren't going to take the vaccine if Trump strong armed the FDA. Once the FDA gave emergency use authorization the calculous changed. They weren't going to base it off what Trump said but what the scientists said. Covid is deadly to everyone. Some demographics moreso than others but that's zero reason to not get vaccinated. Have you ever considered the other guy? Please list the therapeutics that prevent covid with peer reviewed data. Thanks. FDA gave full approval of Pfizer. They are not experimental. Didn't somebody here say this nonsense would stop if the FDA got off their a$$ and gave full approval? Guess that didn't happen. The vaccines would slow transmission if idiots would get vaccinated. Science is hard. You're lying about the Biden admin saying they would knock on your door and force vaccinate if that's what you are insinuating.

  31. Yes. If you don’t like/agree with that howabout, is likely as good or better than Nebraska? Prove me wrong. (Hopefully the team proves me wrong tomorrow) BTW, the 2 or 3 teams are Nebraska, Purdue and Northwestern…and Illinois (I can’t count). Of course it’s just my opinion but Huskers have shown nothing, NW was horrendous in their first game and word is Purdue is not expected to be very good. Guess we’ll see tomorrow.

  33. My comment was based on the last couple of years and not on the Wagner game. Maybe you’re right and I’m wrong. I think we may have our hands full if we play like we did the first quarter and a half last week. I might start believing once the Huskers put together more than 2.5 quarters of football. Nebraska has not earned any respect and has proven they can struggle with anybody. I was including Nebraska in that 2 or 3 teams in the West.

  34. Still trying figure out why people think Buffalo is some P5-level monster team, when they ain't even played a P5 team in two full years, and don't even have the same head coach as they did back then. What, they put up a bunch of points against a peewee school that's only won a single game in the last two years and probably shouldn't even be in D-1? FFS, Fordham would've probably put up 40+ against Wagner.
    2 points
  35. Yep. We’ve been well conditioned to expect things to go south. It doesn’t help that Buffalo is likely as good or better than 2 or 3 teams in the B1G West. Besides Fordham and Bethune, I can’t say there are any teams we can count on beating yet.

  39. Agreed. Nelson, Payne, and Tannor are all listed as 6'3". Your true effective edge rushers tend to be more in that 6'5" range; both height and wingspan are a big deal. The only way you can really take a 6'3" guy and have him take on the average offensive tackle in the B1G is if he is a legitimate freak athlete IMO. Someone will probably chime in with shorter guys who are effective pass rushers on other teams or in the NFL - but again I said "legitimate freak athlete."

  43. Frost seems pretty set on CTB, which I don't like. The one last week was a tough hop, but he's just consistently made the wrong decisions in fielding them - difficult or not, that can't happen. But given the #3 appears to be Brody Belt, I'm guessing the more explosive guys (Brown, Nixon?, Rahmir) aren't great at actually catching the punts. Which is just as important as making good decisions on whether or not to field it.

  45. Trump or conservatives did not condone pipe bombs or lynchings. Wasn’t it conservatives that actually got shot playing softball? It’s easy to paint with a broad brush looneys on both sides. Yet there are many in Congress on the democratic side who lined up to support Russia hoax and Jussie hoax. Once party leaders support it, wink nod, it gives credence for fake news to run their propaganda s#!t narratives and bring on their official party guests to seem official in their suits and ties. It’s bloviating bs. And going back to my original premise, everyone is getting wise to this s#!t and knows had it been Stacy Abrams getting eggs thrown at her or Trump Jr. banging hookers while losing laptops, the coverage would be endless. No way out of that one. The jig is up and everyone sees it.
