    I have 3 different friends who either still live or grew up in McCook, Garden City and Colby who all pronounce "bread" as "bray yud. I'm not saying everyone from there says it that way but that the only people I've heard say it that way were from that part of Nebraska and Kansas.

    That pronunciation( May-zure) and words like "bray-yud (bread) seem to originate from southwest Nebraska and western Kansas.

    I have three friends who always use seen/saw improperly. It drives me crazy and I have to grit my teeth.

    Or people who fart on an elevator, then quickly get off and take the stairs to the next floor to view the damage.
  5. A high percentage of Div 1 athletes were the best athlete in their high school and maybe in their conference. There can be many reasons a kid doesn't thrive in school. Some aren't bought in, some don't think they need to lift, some get recruited over, some don't have the IQ and many times when a coaching change happens they don fit the new system. There are some diamonds in the portal but many are just glass.
  6. A Nebraska farmer got his foot caught in an auger and before it could pull him in and take his life he used his pocket knife to cut off his own leg 8" below the knee. The will to live was strong with this one.

    Open Letter to New Husker Staff

    My feelings are that we can wait three years and watch the 4 or 5 kids held over to be practice players while the team plays BIG 10 games with 5 or 6 new recruits or we can do a reset in one year and come out swinging in year two. There is momentum in Lincoln with Fred H and we need to strike while the iron is hot.
  8. As fast as he is pulling in recruits I fear the NCAA will be looking for bagmen!

    Not sure what classification this young man's school plays in but he has a way of finding the ball in the back field.
  11. That was an interesting Derby.....it will be remembered for something other than an exciting race sadly.

      DB and Sharpe were having an interesting debate this morning about whether or not the whole thing was "controversial." DB felt it wasn't because the stewards ultimately made the right call. Sharpe was trying to argue it was controversial because what happened caused people to lose money. (Those are the boiled down versions).

       

      Ultimately, if the stewards made the right call (which I think they did), then to me, that's just sports. Stuff happens.

    Are we still looking for a big and a three point shooter?

    That may be about the highest position a BIG team can attain. The Huskers usually don't keep the top talent in the state of Nebraska as those kids want to play in a warm weather year round program. Erstad had a solid recruiting class (mostly Nebraska and midwest kids with a sprinkling of Texas kids) this past year and they are pulling their weight already.

    60 M is the desired indoor short straightaway sprint. However some older indoor facilities are too small to get the full 60 M safely so they go to 55 M. The indoor seniors meets I run in have either depending on the venue.
