  6. I'm not deflecting anything. I'm simply pointing out the absurd nature of modern conservatism and the lengths individuals go through to make their conservative identity work. I fully support research and further investigations into the origins of COVID-19. It is still most likely occurred naturally, but it's possible (although improbable) that it originated in a lab. What I find amusing is that Conservatives like you latch onto the DOE report as if it's gospel - because you WANT it to be true. Conservatives have to reject reality to make their conservative identity make sense. So the nanosecond an institution publishes something that confirms any portion of that identity, its latched onto - despite what any number of other reports or studies say about the matter. Furthermore, scientific findings and near total agreement among scientists about climate change is rejected because it runs counter to your conservative identity. The same can be said about scientific findings about COVID death rates in counties that voted for Trump, efficacy of vaccines or Ivermectin or any number of things. This is not treated with the same vigor because it runs counter to the Conservative identity - and it would really suck if conservative voting led to all these terrible outcomes and therefore must be false.

  8. Ummmm isn't football a game where there is opportunity for injury due to twisting and people falling into you and what not? You can only prevent injury by practicing scenarios where they might happen - I say go at it, it may very well help him be better conditioned to not get injured in the season.

  9. There’s a lot to unpack here. First let me start with Trump calling it the China virus. Immature, irresponsible and needlessly inflammatory for sure…but not entirely wrong, except for who it was and the way he went about it. The hatred it spawned against Asian people was/is horrible and was not acceptable (like most everything Trump). Personally I’m not rooting or hoping one way or the other and I don’t think anything about it has been conclusive. In fact I would be relieved to find out for sure it was the result of some naturally occurring species jump. I just think given the location and the Chinese government’s attempts to cover up and not cooperate are pretty damning. People that don’t have something to hide generally don’t go out of their way to hide things. Occam’s Razor and all that…

  11. Elite athletes want to be pushed to get better, get stronger, and get faster. It's part of what makes them elite. If Haussman wasn't getting that at NU under Duval and the prior staff, that is concerning. I wouldn't be surprised if other former players felt that way, as well.

  12. Interesting comment by Hausmann on leaving NU for Michigan. I wonder if other current players are glad for the new S&C as well. Hausmann says that above all he was most impressed with the Wolverines’ secret weapon: strength and conditioning coach Ben Herbert. https://wolverineswire.usatoday.com/2023/03/01/why-ernest-hausmann-decided-to-become-a-wolverine/

  14. I know! Look, I am just a normal everyday person. But if you think it wasn't made in a lab, well, you are lying to yourself because you probably were so against the idea that it was from a lab.

  15. He was good to go until he got a slight tear in the other knee. It wasn’t even close to as bad as the first one but while he was out, they went back into the first knee and cleaned some stuff up. He could have actually been back for the start of the year if they didn’t work on both knees. He was cleared to play after the OU game.

  20. In the earliest case, the patient became ill on 1 December 2019 and had no reported link to the seafood market, the authors report. "No epidemiological link was found between the first patient and later cases," they state. Their data also show that, in total, 13 of the 41 cases had no link to the marketplace. "That's a big number, 13, with no link," says Daniel Lucey, an infectious disease specialist at Georgetown University. https://www.science.org/content/article/wuhan-seafood-market-may-not-be-source-novel-virus-spreading-globally

  21. 1) that bill is complete stupidness and the State congressman should be embarrassed. 2) Filidorski is a complete idiot for the headline in his tweet as the bill is in reference to any state Gov official not just Gov’s office. From the article that Filidorski posted and cutoff a paragraph in his tweet Brodeur’s proposal, Senate Bill 1316: Information Dissemination, would require any blogger writing about government officials to register with the Florida Office of Legislative Services or the Commission on Ethics. In the bill, Brodeur wrote that those who write “an article, a story, or a series of stories,” about “the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, a Cabinet officer, or any member of the Legislature,” and receives or will receive payment for doing so, must register with state offices within five days after the publication of an article that mentions an elected state official.

  22. Maybe most of you have already seen this since it’s an older series but Boardwalk Empire on HBO Max is really really good. I’m surprised I hadn’t watched it much sooner. It’s about the rise of organized crime in prohibition era 1920s. Some of the characters are fictional but many were actual gangsters. I think it weaves in and out of actual events, based on actual events and fiction. Al Capone’s early days, Johnny Torrio, Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky….a whole bunch of actual mafioso guys. And a great cast, Steve Buscemi, Michael Shannon, the guys that played Junior in Soprano's and Omar in the Wire to name a few. Anyway I’m finding it very historically interesting as I Google the names. Guess I didn’t realize how much influence prohibition actually had on the rise of organized crime.

  23. You guys do know there's a long history of pandemics caused by viruses jumping species. It's kinda been the pandemic MO for the last several years, if not most of the Life on Earth era. So why would it be weird to believe this time? I was against the idea it was from a lab when there was no clear evidence of any kind, the President was calling it The China Virus, and people were beating up Japanese Americans for looking Chinese. At the same time, is China capable of running a flawed and dangerous virology lab? Or conducting viral warfare against the West? Sure. Why not? But pretending the evidence is conclusive is also a bit weird, as is rooting for the latter scenario as if it's preferable.

  24. Our lines better play extremely well. Prime will have the Buffs fired up, the stadium rocking, and some athletes running around. If the lines play well and we stay composed, we win.

  25. I remember hearing some of these conspiracy stories before but I've never figured out how they have any credibility. Not that conspiracy theories have to have credibility to be believed. But apparently I don't get on TikTok enough.

  27. I’m pretty sure the safe fall back position on China is to not trust anything they say and to assume the worst. They have not shown to be trustworthy or mindful of ethics. I would call that simply being realistic and not necessarily xenophobic.

  31. This ladies and gentlemen is a great example of the Art of Projection. It’s very well done. A tweet about DOE report was shared without comment by me. Though I do agree with the person who made the tweet in saying this discussion had been suppressed and tried to be shut down by “the experts”. Same thing is still happening on here as shown above. Poster tries to ridicule, use hyperbolic language, and “rage farm” about latching on to a study that shares my point of view on the subject all the while trying to claim I’m anti-science. Unlike you, I’m open to being wrong, when evidence is presented to confirm natural origin. Like finding the species in the wild that has Covid-19. I’m hoping you are aware how small the odds that a coronavirus mutated into Covid -19 virus inside the body of an animal while an animal was sitting in a cage in Wuhan that against almost all odds was able to jump to humans in a capacity to latch and create spread on its first jump attempt. We do know however, that it is much easier for human to animal transmission. Why didn’t the paper from 2022 look into the possibility that humans infected those caged animals that they claim were responsible for a zoonotic jump? The likely hood of that is much greater occurring to the CDC.

  32. It doesn't take long for coaches to realize watch S&C drills and say within their inner circles "This kid is still not in good shape (despite losing a lot of weight already) and he still needs to transform his body. He doesn't have the strength, speed, and agility we need to be a regular contributor, but we still think he is worth keeping him around and see if we can develop him." The S&C work isn't just weight lifting and running. It's a lot of drills which mimic the on-field, physical battles which players face in the games. I haven't seen these drills, but it wouldn't be that much of a leap of faith to think that Hood is really struggling in these "game-type" drills.

  34. Well yeah but I don’t like Boston so…. I don’t think the Avs have what it takes this year. Too many injuries still and there are 2 or 3 teams in the East playing at a much higher level. Heck New Jersey made them look stupid tonight and Boston has been insane.

  38. It’s not a world view, it’s actually just a view about a virus origin. But nice hyperbolic deflection. Nope. It’s a sentiment and not proven true. Again nice hyperbolic deflection

  39. If it matters what I think, my money is on a leak from the Wuhan Lab. I think it’s overly coincidental that the first cases were near Wuhan and that lab happens to “study” the Coronavirus. Toss in an unhealthy dose of coverup and obfuscation by China and well…. The only thing I’m not completely convinced of is if that lab was trying to weaponize the virus and if the “leak” was intentional or accidental. I’m all but ruling out natural occurrence. But even I realize that is speculation if and until we are able to get more information or access which may never come. None of our agencies reports prove anything and do not illicit a high level of confidence.

  40. Many of the posts in the thread are disputing The Turtle and want the USA to stop providing aid to Ukraine stating that we have needs in the USA. Well, these are typically trump cult members who use that excuse to support trump's master - Putin. However, the money spent in Ukraine ends up degrading Russia's military and it also prevents the USA from having to send soldiers when Putin goes after a NATO country next (Poland) if he isn't stopped in Ukraine. This is the best way from keeping us from having to send troops to assist in another war in Europe (hopefully).

  41. That is false. Truth is, the Huskers were 4-5 with Casey Thompson. And with the exception of OU, the Huskers had leads in 3 of those games with Casey (4 if counting Illinois). Defense was an issue. Against NW, Casey and Huskers had a 28-17 lead in 3rd QTR, and all the momentum after scoring a touchdown. The team was amped up. But that momentum lasted about 30 seconds.... because of the onside kick attempt failed, which gave NW a short field, momentum, and soon a touchdown on that drive to close the gap and make it a game. It gave new life to NW and the Huskers struggled on both sides of the ball after that. NW offense had 85 plays and 527 yards, converted 4 of 5 in redzone. Against Georgia Southern, Huskers took lead 42-38 with 3:05 left in game. Not only did the Defense allow 642 yards to Georgia Southern on 86 plays, but the Husker's defense also could not stop Georgia Southern with a lead, at home, and lost the game. GSU marched down the entire field a scored the winning touchdown with 00:36 left in the game. Against the Blackshirt defense, one single GSU running back had 132 yards rushing on 10 carries, and their QB also passed for 409 yards. Against Wisconsin, CT returned after missing 2 games, still playing injured, but the Huskers were up 14-3 going into the 4th quarter. With 3:05 left in the game, Huskers leading 14-9, the defense could not stop Wisconsin and gave up the winning TD with 00:35 left in game. The Illinois game was incomplete (Casey had the Huskers at home, leading #17 Illinois, early in the 2nd QTR 9-6, then the injury happened). It was the most points scored against Illinois in a 1st half in 7 games. With 9 minutes left until halftime. With Casey sidelined, Illinois took over, won the game, and improved to 7-1. So, I disagree with "why run back 4-8 season" jab at Casey, because context matters a lot. IMO the Huskers had opportunity to be 7-2 with Casey with a better defense and stupid decision making by the HC in the NW game.
