  1. I'm sure a receptionist just wrote down 'Mike from OSU is interested" and there was a classic miscommunication.

  6. I've worked for both government and Fortune 500 organizations, and it's a close call. In both cases it's mostly a matter of Uppermost Management defending their turf at all costs, and Middle Management motivated to cover its a$$ and tracks, and everyone killing the messenger who inevitably brings bad news. Adorable how Republicans think an unshackled for-profit business model solves any of our problems. Hard to believe, but you will start missing government programs when the new overlords start slashing them, and everyone is reminded why they existed in the first place.

  8. And... our ladies advance to tomorrow's championship game with a 2-1 victory over tOSU.. bottom of the 7th double to score the runner on and win the game. Tomorrow is a morning game (10:30) early start as they are expecting afternoon storms. They'll be facing either Michigan (2-0 verses Michigan this year) or Northwestern (0-0 vs Northwestern).

  9. My read is this offer is to have a backup for Wynn if he says no - or to try to put pressure on Wynn? IMO, stupid bluff. All in on Wynn, we're not in a place to tell him to hurry up and make a decision.

  10. The goal isn’t to end up, in any logical fashion, with the best team remaining as champion. The goal is one thing, $$$$. It’s the only explanation for anything they’ve been doing anymore.

  13. Yeah, there are a lot of women who desperately want to have children and rely on modern medical miracles to do so. But because in-vitro often runs the risk of partial and compromised pregnancies, both doctor and patient will now be classified as murderers if they do anything about it. I encourage the God's Will crowd to abandon any medical science that helps keep them alive. Or shut the f#&% up.

  19. Transfer Portal Windows - Proposal of 2 windows for football players to enter the transfer portal. Most likely 5 weeks after regular season ends (Dec-Jan), 5 weeks after spring practice ends (Apr-May). Recruiting Calendar - Basically there would be 2 periods for recruiting off campus, either you can recruit or can't recruit (no more "no contact visits", etc). And there would be a set number of coach/recruiting days that are available. If you send 8 coaches out recruiting for 1 day it would be 8 days, if you send 4 coaches out for 3 days it would be 12 days. Coaching Limitations - Schools could pay for as many full time assistants as they want. This would get rid of grad assts, analysts, etc. If you want 27 on field coaches, go right ahead. I assume this goes for all sports, not just football. Get rid of 25/class recruit limit - You can sign as many kids as you want as long as you are at 85 by start of season. A last one that would really impact non-revenue sports. Similar to football (85 scholarships) or basketball (13 scholarships), there would be a set scholarship limit for each sport and schools could choose to fund scholarships up to that limit. For example, baseball is currently allowed 11.7 scholarships, and those are divided among all players on the roster (some players get 75% scholarship, some players get a 5% scholarship). Under the new proposal, they would set a scholarship limit for baseball at say 25 scholarships, and schools could decided to have 11 scholarships, 19, scholarships, or go all the way to 25 scholarships. https://theathletic.com/3304957/2022/05/11/ncaa-transformation-committee-rule-changes/

  21. I don’t understand Barta’s reasoning about sitting out a year fixing anything other than obviously slowing down transfers and delaying NIL deals. I’d guess a lot of players would choose to not transfer if they couldn’t cash in on a big deal immediately. On 2nd thought, maybe that does fix this mess they’ve allowed to occur by curtailing both things.

  22. That’s one way of looking at it, but not reality for some in the center. When the right went full MAGA whacko far right, centrists on this board (and I would think most) didn’t go farther right.

  25. I don't think they have a choice. Democrats won't be able to win Electoral College victories by dominating cities. Moderating on issues gives them a chance to win in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. If they don't, and current trends continue, those states are going to be lost to them just like Ohio and Iowa. Yeah, I agree they could do a better job. But their coalition makes it hard. If they get pissed off about issues that appeal to their college educated whites base, it alienates their working class white and minority wings. If they want to go offensive on issues that appeal to their minority wing, it alienates their working class wing. Finding a message to go on the offensive that appeals to their 3 main coalitions is mostly impossible. They probably need to dilute their platform down to raising taxes on the wealthy and focusing on their policies that improve the safety net. Any messaging with terms like "social justice" or "latinx" or anything similar needs to be tossed into the nearest supermassive black hole. Although I doubt the progressive wing lets them.

  26. OK, is this days on the road? Or, days where they have contact with recruits? If it's days on the road, that's BS. A coach from Nebraska might have to have a day travel to get somewhere to see a recruit, while a coach already sitting in Florida, can just drive down the road and see the recruit. So, this would penalize schools like Nebraska that aren't in recruiting hotbeds. I would be shocked if this goes through. But, if it does, does our penalty go away? Maybe they are wanting to make this move because someone realized "s#!t.....since we penalized Nebraska, now we need to penalize Michigan and we don't want to do that". Smart move. If so many kids are going to leave through the portal, you have to have the ability to replenish your roster.

  28. Here's an interesting thread on the baby formula shortage. It's claiming that much of the shortage is caused by banning imports. There's a lot of excuses for this, but in reality, it's to protect domestic producers with tariffs and regulations. So, my question is, if Republicans are going to rant about this and claim Biden needs to deregulate and get rid of tariffs so there can be imports, how do they reconcile that with the Trump era idiotic tariffs and regulations to prevent imports of other products to protect domestic manufacturing?

  29. We are currently full and looking to add at least 2 more players. I assume the staff knows 1 freshman who won't make it to campus and a few fringe guys that might leave.

  37. Remember walk-on Matt O'Hanlon? Dude was very productive his Jr and Sr years at Nebraska playing safety. If you have a good DC you don't have to be overly athletic to play safety.

  38. You could also look at it that perhaps the psyche that caused this team to lose all those close games last year can hopefully be erased with all the new pieces in place, especially at prominent positions (starting QB specifically)

  40. This NW team is going to be a lot closer to last year's team than any of their scrappy West champion teams. There's just not a lot of dudes - they've got one OL (Skoronski) who will probably be some level of all conference, and that's it. I don't see anyone else even contending for 3rd team or anything. Hull is alright, but the bulk of his production came against very bad teams. Zero receiving talent, and I don't see the overachieving front 7 players (Dean Lowry, Joe Gaziano, Earnest Brown, Paddy Fisher, Blake Gallagher, Chris Bergin, Anthony Walker) or polished DBs (Brandon Joseph, Greg Newsome, Godwin Igwebuke) they've had in the past. Anything can happen with NW, but their skill talent is just not that of a P5 team and they don't currently have the defense or OL to make up for it. We are in serious trouble if this is a close game. Not expecting 56-7 again because we won't be firing on all cylinders and they'll be ready to play, but if this is an L or even a 24-21 type of game I will be in panic mode.
