  1. how is Israel suppose to negotiate with these guys? their constitution calls for the destruction of Israel. i don't like the methods isreal has to use to fight these people.....but does Israel really have a choice given the Hamas goals of Israeli annihilation and their tactics of using the palestinian people as human shields?

  6. While I don’t like or want any debt increase, let’s put a little perspective on this. The budget is around $7 trillion PER year and this bill according to the source says it will increase the current $33 TRILLION deficit by $1 billion a year. And that’s assuming the CBO is correct which they hardly ever are (here’s looking at you Medicare CBO score, Obamacare CBO score, Trump tax cut CBO score) “In major news this morning, the proposed bill by Speaker Mike Johnson that would provide Israel with over 14.3 billion dollars in aid, while cutting the same amount from IRS funding provided for by the Inflation Reduction Act, would increase the deficit by over 12 billion dollars over the next decade.”

  7. With three of five starters out for extended weeks, if not the season, guys moving around along the line and underclassmen playing, we still lead the Big Ten in rushing. I think this O Line is sneaky better than people are giving them credit for. Not good, but better than bad. That said, building from the O Line up is, obviously, the best way to build a team.

  8. I'm sure you disagree. And I'm sure there is an instance here and there where that happens. But in the clip you referenced, he literally starts looking to the left. After he starts to scramble he comes off to at least one other receiver, then a third right before he gets hit. He should have gotten rid of it sooner but that is nothing close to confirming that he doesn't look past his first read. In this set of clips, he really only stays on his first read on the very first pass play. That's because he was waiting for a downfield route to develop. On pretty much every other one he gets to at least two if not three reads.

  9. After playing their two easy non-con games to start the season (Central Michigan & Richmond), Michigan State is averaging 11.3 points per game. Nebraska is averaging 20.25 PPG. Even taking away our two easiest games (Northern Illinois & LA Tech), we're averaging 16.5 points. If we just stick to what we've been doing, we should win this game by at least a touchdown. Cut down on turnovers and it could be much easier. Of course, it'd be nice to have an opponent have a bad game against us. Maybe we're due, and Sparty will just **** the bed and it'll be relatively easy.

  10. I don’t understand this. Maryland is not a good football team. Why people keep giving them credit for being one is completely beyond me. They have some offensive fire power on occasion, but that’s about it. We have an incredibly strong defense. We are playing Maryland at home. Wisconsin is getting decimated by injuries and even before that they weren’t a dominant force by any stretch of the imagination. That said, this is definitely the toughest game left on the schedule and is a road game. We beat Iowa last year with arguably a lesser team, against an iowa team that was probably about the same. Game is in Lincoln this year. 3-1 down the stretch here is not just possible, it’s probable.

  11. Think peoples annoyances with Raiola not helping to land his Nephew is helping with peoples annoyances at the fact that our OLine isn’t a final product this instant. They’re ok, and with how poor they were the last few years it’s been an improvement. I also think the offense is running plays to protect the tackles better than the last few years (more chipping on pass plays).

  12. One of the more knowledgeable football people I know IRL is a co-worker. Enjoy talking 'skers ball with him. It was probably either heading into year 2 or year 3 of Frost's tenure that he said, referring to what the local beat writers were talking about heading into that season, "I'm sick of talking about culture; just play the damn games." Fair statement. But holy cow. When I listen to Butler and I see what the coaches are doing and specifically Rhule, it's like the team's psychology & culture has really done a 180° turnaround. Culture was a big problem. It seems like this team just cares more about winning and more specifically, not losing. They just really don't want to lose. Yes, several coaches are big upgrades over Frost & his guys so obviously they're just being coached better from a football perspective. But the culture is really heading in the right direction now.

  16. It's all of it. Number one NBC is terrible at broadcasting college football. There's a reason why they only really had Notre Dame games until recently. I tried watching the OSU-Wiscy game last week and about feel asleep because the announcer sounded like he should have been calling a golf tournament. Number two the best part of joining the B1G for fans was BTN. It meant that every game was going to be broadcast on an (at the time) average cable subscription between Fox, ESPN/ABC, and BTN. PPV was going to be dead! Now the average consumer has to manage tons of apps and subscriptions, and the costs are quickly becoming more than the old cable bill.

  17. Great post and again shows the team is winning in spite of HH performance not because of. He seems like a great kid and a decent athlete. He gives his all, yet he’s just not a good QB. As others have said, maybe a TE/emergency QB next year.

  18. I want to also add that I’m tickled that we are even debating these things…a bowl game, 8-9 wins, a Big 10 West title…all that in November. I think we can all agree that this is really freaking cool. It wasn’t that long ago that we were all disappointed with 9 wins, but I’m hella ecstatic right now. Haha.

  21. How many of these fights did Israel start, going back to 1948 when the British mandate ended and the UN divided this land up? Seems like everytime someone picks a fight, Israel wins and takes more land as a result. They took the Golan Heights for security. They built walls to protect against suicide bombers. That actually worked. Then they had to build the Iron dome for the rockets. Now that got overwhelmed. There are Israeli Arabs with full rights in Israel. I suspect they could get along peacefully if everyone around them wasn't trying to annihilate them.

  24. Stop Rate. The key to the success of our D. Intersecting article. Neb went from # 93rd last year to 23rd currently. Get out the check book for White. It sould only get better as he and his assistants develop these players and new recruits. https://theathletic.com/5021015/2023/11/01/college-football-stop-rate-rankings-nebraska/ Nebraska is one win away from bowl eligibility for the first time since 2016. How is Matt Rhule getting it done in Year 1? With a defense that’s quickly rising up the ranks as one of college football’s best in stop rate. What is stop rate? It’s a basic measurement of success: the percentage of a defense’s drives that end in punts, turnovers or a turnover on downs. This simple metric can offer a more accurate reflection of a defense’s effectiveness in today’s faster-tempo college football than yards per game or points per game. We’re now in Year 7 of tracking this statistic (here are the final standings for 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017) along with every defense’s points per drive average. The Huskers are emerging as one of the most improved defenses in the country by this standard. They finished 93rd in stop rate last season and have climbed to No. 23 in this week’s update. Rhule’s squad has won five of its last six games, and if you take a closer look, this was one of the best defenses in the country in October. Nebraska’s stop rate during its current three-game win streak is 87.2 percent. That’s good for fourth-best in FBS and second among all Power 5 defenses behind Michigan in the month of October. Over the past month, this defense surrendered a total of 22 points over 39 drives and ranked among the top 10 nationally in yards per play (4.0), rush defense (66 yards per game), first downs allowed (12.7 per game) and three-and-out rate (46 percent). During this three-game streak, the Huskers haven’t allowed a touchdown on six trips into the red zone. Rhule had to search for a new defensive coordinator when he made his return from the NFL and he found a gem in Tony White, whom he hired away from Syracuse. This isn’t a defense that was totally reconstructed via the transfer portal. They’re doing what great coaches tend to do in Year 1: bringing out the best in the guys they inherited. Only one of Nebraska’s defensive starters in their 31-14 win over Purdue — freshman edge rusher Princewill Umanmielen — wasn’t on the team a year ago. For Rhule and his process of building this program, it’s important to praise the improving play while also driving home the point that the truth is somewhere closer to the middle. At his weekly news conference on Monday, he pointed to some miscues with alignment in the secondary, a touchdown allowed on a third-and-15 along with issues with QB scrambles and tackling that weren’t quite up to their standard. Players watched the tape, Rhule said, and understood that game wasn’t as good as they thought. “We didn’t play nearly as well on defense as the stats denoted,” he said. That’s the mentality they need in a rebuild, especially if they want to be a team that can win close four-quarter games down the stretch. The Huskers have endured a ton of injuries on offense, and their defense just keeps picking them up. Nebraska has lost 19 turnovers this season, which ranks third-most in FBS. The season-opening losses to Minnesota and Colorado were doomed by a combined 26 points scored off of Huskers turnovers. Since that rough start, the defense has done a remarkable job in those tough spots with only two TDs and two field goals allowed off 11 turnovers.

  26. I would agree that there should be an expectation that personal belongings should be safe in a locker room at a D1 CFB game. But there is also an expectation that there are thieving scumbags everywhere and when you make a habit of showing off your bling, the thieves will probably take notice. Honestly I would expect the CU team should provide the primary security for their own player’s belongings. Deion should cover it himself if he feels so strongly about it and quit making ridiculous claims of the NCAA.

  28. And that is where organizations like WallBuilders get it wrong. The USA was never meant to be a Christian nation. Yet David Barton and others like him have pushed that narrative for decades. Yes, most, not all, of the founders and writers of our original documents were Christian but they saw first hand the tyranny of a state religion and a govt beholding to it. They knew for their religion to be safe and secured - all religions - including non-religious - need to be safe and secure. While it is true, and as quoted by many founders, that a nation needs moral people to lead, that morality wasn't limited to just the Christian faith. How ironic that Speaker Johnson and others in the GOP cult movement support a highly immoral man as their leader. They contradict everything a Christian founder would have stood for back in the early stages of our country. https://wvw.wallbuilders.com/ WallBuilders is an organization dedicated to presenting America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built – a foundation which, in recent years, has been seriously attacked and undermined. In accord with what was so accurately stated by George Washington, we believe that “the propitious [favorable] smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation which disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained.”

  31. He's not wrong. But... Minnesota's 5th string running back had 6 total carries on the season before rushing 40 times for 200 yards against MSU. And they couldn't run at all against us, and passed 35 times in the 2nd half alone. Meanwhile, they ran 18 straight times in the 2nd half, scored twice, and put the game away. The recipe is there, but we have to stick to it. Give Johnson, Fleeks, and even Grant the lions share of the carries, hit our shot plays, and we'll be fine.

  32. Well the partisan "take" during this time -- fed directly from the President -- was that the American economy was doing better than it ever had in history under Donald Trump, a clear repudiation of the disastrous Obama presidency. No amount of facts -- the economic crisis Obama inherited from Bush, and the 6.5 years of steady growth under Obama that simply continued under Trump -- changed that narrative for conservatives. Nor does the 80 year economic record cited in my earlier post. Biden cites stats that conveniently ignore how much room for growth the pandemic provided. Just as both parties will need to come together to address Social Security, there needs to be an understanding that the post-Reagan era of low taxes and supply side benefits has hugely impacted the middle and working classes, whose loss of purchasing power often gets overlooked in the economic indicators. And while I love "the people" our views of the economy can shift with a seasonal spike in gas prices or cyclical jobs layoffs, never stepping aside to get the big picture and historical perspective. In fairness, many of the world's greatest economists admit it's a science with no laboratory, and nobody is really sure whatever is going to happen next.

  34. First, anything is possible in these last 4. Second, remember however that we are also decimated by injuries, and have overcome some huge mistakes in ball security recently to beat some not good teams. We are 125th in turnover margin the country. Wisconsin and Iowa are the two best defenses we will face all year outside of Michigan, I believe. We had a team set up to defeat what Iowa does on defense last year, a deep threat passing game. That is the exact opposite of what we have this year. Iowa will have little trouble shutting us down on offense, and that game will be a huge struggle for both teams. I am talking 3-2 type situation is very possible, unless we continue to turn the ball over at this rate, then they will win something like 12-6 from chip shots after we give them field position. We can go 3-1, but I think it is far from probable at this point. My bet would be 2-2, with MSU and Maryland being the wins, but Maryland may be able to throw on us more than some of you expect. Iowa will come down to ball security, and I expect to lose on the road in Madison. 4-0 would have me skinny dipping in kool-aid flavored jello at this point.

  35. "He wasn't on any of our pass lists" is a nice way to sound like you're saying something without actually saying anything. Either they did a terrible job of asking around before the presser. Or they don't want to admit what they found out so they gave a non-answer and hope people quit asking questions.

  36. This is a fair take, but do you really believe we are winning BECAUSE of him, or he is simply doing enough/not screwing up as much as Sims for the team as a whole to win? I applaud his effort, his heart and his want to. I simply think his ceiling is pretty low overall as a well rounded QB, and we should be trying to shoot higher. I also acknowledge that the same should be said for the entire offense around him, so yes he may be better with better performance around him. I think we want him on the field in some capacity regardless regularly, and he could be an emergency QB for the rest of his time here.

  37. I think I am more curious to see what the kid can do with a full offseason to improve on what he did this year. He is a winner and a smart kid with the right motivation. He just might end up being a good QB. Who is the last QB to win 5 of 6 games for us? Armstrong in 2016...

  38. I don't really know anything about today's music or what the kids are listening to, so I won't have a specific answer to your question. But I do have a long-winded theory. I think it is worth noting in Prince's case that he was an amazing musician on the guitar and an extremely prolific songwriter. However, he mostly made pop music that did not necessarily display the kind of skill he that he showed off in this video. I love classic rock and love great guitar work, but I don't really like most of Prince's catalog. There are other musical geniuses that don't necessarily play the kind of stuff that appeals to us. For example, Flavor Flav of Public Enemy (the doofus with the clock around his neck). I heard that he is a musical virtuoso who plays like 15 different instruments. But he made rap music and wasn't even the best rapper in his group. A casual listen of Public Enemy would give you no idea that Flav has such a broad range of musical skill. So my theory is that there are probably still a lot of very talented musicians out there making music, but no one really shreds on the guitar anymore, and rock and roll is essentially dead. Those of us who love what we heard in this video are not going to find it in today's music. There is a new generation of musical geniuses out there making other types of music that us old-timers aren't going to be interest in.

  39. Michigan State has lost 6 straight games. Their last win was September 9th against Richmond. Since then, they've been outscored 33.5 - 11.3, and have failed to crack double digits in 3 of those games. Nebraska needs to take control early, because Sparty is on Quit Watch.

Each of those teams has just two wins this season, and Virginia is the only one with a win over a P5 team. Michigan State and Indiana are tied for dead last in the Big Ten. (Believe it or not, neither of the two worst teams are in the West!) After that, Maryland put up 27 against Northwestern (#70 scoring defense), 24 against Illinois (#84 scoring D), and they did manage 17 against Ohio State (#2 scoring D, actually the most Ohio State has given up all year).
