  1. The problem with the "don't say gay" movement is they'll use examples like those posted earlier - which are clearly wrong - and use that to stifle all talk about anything related to LGBTQ in K-12 education, and that's also clearly wrong. Extremes like these teachers should be dealt with, we can all agree on that. But these people are not a reason to prosecute teachers at the school system's expense because Timmy wants to tell his kindergarten class about what his two moms do at work. This is a classic example of government overreach.

  2. NIL has thrown all this into disarray. DL is the most coveted position across the board and can make the most dinero transferring. Just like any business, NU is probably dropping big NIL bucks trying to get new guys in and undervaluing in house talent. If I'm a semi talented Dlineman with a chance for a strongish college career, and a small chance at the NFL and you could make an extra 100k by transferring, you would be nuts not to consider it. Think Nathan Bazata or Drew Ott either could have made half a mil during their college career under the current rules, and neither got a chance in the NFL, as far as I know both are scratching by on family farms now. That 500k (or more) would have gone a long way toward buying land, equipment or a nest egg and set them up for life instead of leaving them like the rest of use working stifffs. I can tell you right now, if I thought I could get $100k extra on my salary with a lateral move and had no real strings tying me to me current location. I'm gone.

  3. And you guys are acting like no one will improve and everybody's just going to play exactly like they did last year, when we've seen defensive lineman consistently get better every offseason. Robinson is already starter level. Rogers wouldn't have transferred had he been a starter, which would tell me coaches view either Hutmacher or Fiest as a starter. So then we need to find two depth pieces either through the portal or through younger guys improving. It would have been nice to keep Riley and Rogers but I'm confident guys of their caliber can be found in the portal. Chill out.

  4. We aren't chicken littles. The sky fell a long time ago, especially last year when we went THREE AND NINE. No bowl game for 5, mostly likely 6 years in a row now? Yeah, the sky is a quaint, distant memory.

  9. I will make this real easy... The only way you know if someone is "into" kids if if they act on it or if they tell you they are into them. Sooooo you already have a problem. Look, if you were sitting on a bus and the dude next to you goes "Hey, how is it going, you know what I love, kids, don't worry, I don't act on it or anything like that, but man I would love to do this and that to them, so hot" You would not be thinking "Wow, this is interesting, this guy really needs to be treated with dignity and respect because he has not acted on it" Trying to defend that because you feel like it sort of falls under the flag of your political party is nuts and you know it. Look, it is okay to be like "Yeah, I am a ______________ supporter and a registered ___________________ but I still think that people that talk about kids in a sexual way should be beat up" Literally no one will think less of you.

  10. Some reasons are outlined in the article. Some have also been posted here, some in direct response to you that I know you received a notification about. So you either haven't read them or have ignored them. Both are your problem to solve if you're actually interested in a conversation. This banal cat and mouse game you like to play here with your fellow board members isn't going to work on me, particularly when you've asked some variant of 'why is this bad for Disney' and potential reasons as to why have literally been outlined.

  11. If that happened Frost might as well save himself the embarrassment and take an early buyout. We might want to consider going back to a hurry up offense because the only way we'd survive the season is try to make every game a shootout like he did at UCF. I may hold off a bit longer before booking my tickets for Ireland...

  17. You can keep trying to be literal on the open border comment if you want, but the Dem strategies and policies are getting worse not better. If your only concern is that the borders are not literally open so be it. Thats a pretty low bar.

  24. Maybe it's all coordinated with Frost and coaches, or at least folks in Admin. As @Farms mentioned, boosters are forking over money to get kids here. What are they doing for the kids that are here? Especially the kids NU doesn't want to lose. Maybe this is a notice from the football dept that screams, "hey! take care of our kids or they could leave!" wishful thinking, I guess...

  25. Rogers is a smart kid (academic honors) and is graduating with a degree. I think he even had an offer from Vanderbilt out of HS. He's from the East Coast. I totally understand him looking at all options. It sucks for the DL, but he did give 4 years to Lincoln. If he returns to the Huskers great! If he finds a new home, I wish him the best. But I also agree that our DL needs some more bodies from the portal, now more than ever. I don't see enough depth upfront (or rotation) to handle a big ten conference that is heavy on the run game.

  27. I think it's a case of Dems messaging poorly and/or the voters not understanding the actual policy or implications. Instead of "abolish ICE" they could run on "restore CBP" (or something better), which could be functionally the same but would poll better.

  28. Stats and data tell a different story from last years team. They were actually a pretty solid team that found ways to lose. Frost has only coached 4 years with 2 of them being extremely out of the ordinary. What are you talking about? Thurston from Pender, is that you?

  33. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/donald-trump-tantrum-interview-piers-morgan-2020-election-1340648/amp/ The consistently insufferable British TV host interviewed the former president for his new show Piers Morgan Uncensored. After the interview, Morgan on Wednesday tweeted out a very dramatic teaser in which appeared the two had a highly contentious interview — and that suggested Trump had left in anger. A subsequent report Wednesday night, however, suggested Morgan’s dramatic clip may be overhyping the interview — and misleading viewers about how it actually went. NBC News says it has audio of the interview that suggests Trump and Pierce ended the interview amiably, with both men agreeing it was a good interview and parting on good terms. The tape came from Taylor Budowich, Trump’s communications director.

Why would they fight something that strips $2 billion in debt and will supposedly be bad for the city which one would think means good for Disney. “Even though there might be really good reasons why we shouldn’t have Disney control three local governments

  40. The failed leadership of the GOP is on full display once again and it is a pattern wt the GOP placing loyalty to Trump above country. When the Access Hollywood tapes came out, the right thing would have been for the GOP to pulled their nomination of Trump by whatever means possible. Mike Pence caved and so did leadership. After Jan 6, McConnell, aka The Turtle, and McCarthy, aka the Brown Noser , (hint to GOP - don't promote 'McC" guys to leadership) both had an opportunity to finally rid the GOP of the cancer that is trump. As noted below, they capitulated to their own self interests and were cowards in the face of challenge. Unlike them, Liz, Adam and Mitt (and a very few others) showed courage. There will be no "Profile in Courage" book written about McConnell and McCarthy. https://dnyuz.com/2022/04/21/ive-had-it-with-this-guy-g-o-p-leaders-privately-blasted-trump-after-jan-6/

  42. 2nd- It doesn’t matter to me who they are specifically addressing. If you’re a teacher you shouldn’t be putting that message on social media. Now if it’s a private interaction go ahead and say that when warranted. It’s just not a good look for a teacher to be making that public statement and I can clearly see why their school/employer would not put up with it. 3rd- I don’t know where to begin. Let’s start with a person wouldn’t be getting called a pedophile unless A) they acted on their sick urge or B) they were stupid enough to make known they are attracted to kids. I mean fine, I’m sure there are those who successfully fight their sick urge but imo they should only be worrying about continuing to avoid pedophile behavior. Being concerned about how people refer to them just shouldn’t be an issue. Don’t diddle kids and STFU. No need to have some special MAP name. There isn’t any need for them to be referred to as anything if they don’t act on it and if/when they do, they’re a pedophile. What, are we supposed to feel sorry for them because they have sick, disturbing desires or be impressed because they don’t do disgusting things? I really don’t get it.
