  1. I have a feeling people will spend all week on this board talking about the reason we won this game being McCaffrey making the difference. And don't get me wrong, he did play well. But our defense won this game. We haven't seen many displays of awareness and individual athleticism on defense like Williams' punch/scoop/score on this team in the past several years. That play won the game, in my opinion. I could not believe Kade Warner dropped a "gimme" TD pass in the end zone...the game wouldn't have actually been a last-second nail-biter if he just hauls in that catch th

  3. Wow. You've really given us something to think about. After reading this thoughtful post, I need some time to re-evaluate my thoughts and expectations as a Husker fan and as a human being. Hopefully others will read this and take it as seriously as I have. Your insight truly has the power to change some minds and hearts. Thank you for joining this board so you could share your wisdom. Now f#ck off.

  4. The mortality rate for COVID-19 in those age 10 to 20 (the closest group was reported) was 0.2% . The mortality of influneza in 2019 was 0.002% (ages 5-17). For 2018 the mortality rate of influenza was 0.007% in that age group. This is a moratilty rate that is 100 times higher than influenzas. Please stop spouting off information of the top of your head or that you have heard some other ill-informed person say and check the S@#t out. Also, for those who are interested in that sort of thing there is a book, "The Psychology of Pandemic" that goes into peoples reactions to pandemic events.

  5. 1: Yes AM had a great freshman year but you have McCaffrey now that is one of the best athletes in the Big Ten. Even against Ohio State he was at another level than anyone else on the field. When he is in space, he is terrific. He is a quick thinker and confident in his ability. You will have him for 4 more years (if he decides to stay that long). He is going to win a lot of games. 2: Your freshman and sophomore talent is the best young talent that I have seen Nebraska have in a long time. When they are juniors and seniors, they will have a lot of experience and competing at a hig

  10. You keep saying America is "living in fear." We aren't. Maybe you are, or you perceive it that way because people stay at home and wear masks and socially distance, but if that's your definition of "living in fear" that's pretty weak. Masks, social distancing and going out less often are simple preventative measures we can all take to help control spread. In the same breath you say you want to do what is necessary to keep hospitals running and then accuse people who are doing what is necessary to keep hospitals running of "living in fear." It's a strange dichotomy.

  14. I will start this by saying I am absolutely not a liberal or a democrat. I am not afraid of everything and I believe in personal freedom and responsibility. The issue is so many what to cry "freedom" but don't want to uphold the "responsibility" end of the bargain. Also, this isn't directed at any one person or poster--just society as a whole. This idea that we can't just "live in fear' of a virus is absolute horses#!t. Living in fear used to mean you were cowered up in a bunker with MREs that would last 2 years and thousands of water bottles. Now if you wear a mask so to be c

  15. 1. We are underdogs in this game. According to the experts in Vegas, Northwestern SHOULD win this game by 3 points. ESPN FPI gives Northwestern a 68% chance to win this game. While you personally might expect to win this game, the oddsmakers and at least one computer statistical model show that Northwestern is supposed to win on Saturday. 2. I actually wholeheartedly agree with you that Northwestern isn’t a world beater, and I am hopeful that NU can win this game. The challenge, like others have laid out, is we need to play clean, fundamental, sound football without mental gaffes a

  16. OSU fan here. What happened to you folks is utter BS. I'm not alone in the OSU fanbase for thinking so. Wisconsin should have forfeited. You were robbed, plain and simple. We respect that Husker Nation stood with us to get the season reinstated. Hopefully we all can continue to stick together to make some serious changes in the Big 10 leadership. Best of luck to you all in the next 6 games!

  21. It's year 3 and it is the same look as year 1. No accountability, undisciplined play, dumb penalties, no identity on offense, etc. Meanwhile while all this has been going on, programs across the country are bringing new coaches into programs with just as, if not worse situations, and they are WINNING. Doesn't matter if they have "their players" or "their culture" 100% infused into said program. SO WHY SHOULD A FANBASE REMAIN CALM???? Seriously the while this program is trying to stay calm and wait a couple of more years to see the fruits of Scott's labor, the rest of the teams

  24. We know how they got it...they f#&%ed around and didn't follow instructions. We also know that the Big Ten rules were not set up with success in mind but rather failure. The only thing I want to see come out of this now is Wisconsin not being able to play for the next 3 weeks. That better hold up and they should be punished for being stupid. This should not just be a "quarantine" thing, it should be a consequence thing.

  25. Myocarditis is the 3rd leading cause of sudden death in athletes. COVID causes myocarditis, including MRI findings in athletes with MILD or NO symptoms. /rant Additionally, I suspect that you and your 43 friends would not be a very close match for the stresses put on a body by the rigors of division 1 competitive athletics, so your observations are pretty meaningless in assessing the risk to said athletes. Except, perhaps the incautious nature of people of that age. I know quite a few people who have dealt with COVID as well. 2 or 3 who had it in May are sti

  34. My wife is a nurse, and a good friend is an ER doc in Omaha. While I, and they do as well, fully agree with you that folks are recovering/treatment is so much improved but that still isn't the point right now. The point is not overwhelming the hospital systems and preventing access to beds and treatments for folks with other issues. My wife's hospital is already back to April Covid bed use and they are having to stop most surgeries because they don't have enough beds. They will still do life threatening ones of course but other things get put off. Things like chemotherapy become much more d

  35. I love how our fan base expects perfection but we should try to be realistic and at least see the good that's happening. We are gaining 67 more yards per game than Indiana who is tied for 1st place in the East. We are gaining 24 more yards than Georgia who is sitting in 2nd place in the SEC East. There are a pile of teams below us in a lot of categories... I know, wins are what matters but they will come imo. Our defense is playing good enough to win games. We are making correctable mistakes. I think many of those will be corrected over the next few games

  39. If you are not over the set limits and choose not to play a game...you should not play anymore games in the season. You don't get to pick and choose NOT to play because your team is short. Ask yourself this...if the badgers that are currently germy were all walk ons that never play, are they playing the game? Hmmmm Again, this is not about them being scared, no one is scared. It is about them doing what is best for them at the expense of those that have done things right. Know what Paul SHOULD do...find the 22 that went to the wedding, chew

  40. I'm happy for your mom and step dad. My completely healthy 26-year-old friend who played college soccer and is in great shape got it and was severely ill for three weeks and almost had to go on a ventilator. She still is having complications from getting it in July. The ICU beds in Wichita right now are all full of people with similar stories. I am about done tolerating people talking about COVID like this. It is a highly contagious and deadly illness and we can all collectively make minor sacrifices to prevent the spread of. Stop being an a$$h@!e and do them.

  41. I honestly don't know what will happen tomorrow. But if Joe Biden wins, you will be allowed to own all the guns you want, worship your God however you want, and hate whomever you want in the privacy of your own home. Our economy and economic ideology will continue largely on the same path it has been on through Trump, Obama, Bush....basically most of American history. If you are one of the people who will have to pay slightly more in taxes, congratulations -- you are earning over $400,000 a year and your tax rate will still be considerably lower than it was during those decades when America wa

  46. Sorry to post again, but I was not complete. The time off could be longer if the re-conditioning doesn't go well. Also if there is evidence of myocarditis, the treatment is 3-6 months of rest. A lost season. I was involved in drafting the COVID protocol for our local area schools. The Big Ten's protocol is consistent with the American College of Cardiology recommendations. I believe the Big Ten would say that if it prevents one athlete from dying from Sudden Cardiac Death due to COVID, it was worth it. I would agree. The second test would indeed be a nucleic amplification te
