      Any one know why he left?

      @ladyhawke I would love to know, but I doubt if we ever do as fans....unless it's a long time down the road  and he does an interview and it's asked.  Even then, we might not know the real story.

      I hope he finds what he’s looking for. Odd that he would wait this long to leave. If he would rather play lacrosse then this is a perfect opportunity for him to do so. 

  2. The status updates were already going well beyond noting things that were happening.  So several of them have been hidden and we're back to political talk needs to stay in the P&R Forum.

      @Moiraine Yeah, I’m aware. I was just commenting on how fast it became necessary to once again relegate them to P&R. I thought it was a good idea to try a temporary allowance given current affairs. But unsurprisingly it wasn’t handled very well. Seemed to me like some P&R regulars wanted to make sure any vaguely related discussion stay off the front page and in P&R whereas originally that policy wasn’t received too well.

       

      I think it was obvious it was heading nowhere good. Just quicker than even I expected.

      @JJ Husker  I think I only saw one post from a "P&R regular" but maybe there were others that were deleted.

      To be fair a few of those topics weren't exactly news, it was just bait-y articles that I saw passed around reddit's political subs all day that day and the loaded question belonged in P&R anyways.  I missed anything after I posted but I'll imagine it was entertaining and that I did my part I guess.

  3. In the last two years, the Huskers have lost 8 games by 7 points or fewer.

      So we have been 4-9 in games decided by 7 or fewer. Need to flip those numbers around and we are in better shape

      @BIG ERN by pure regression to the mean, I would expect the win-loss record in close games to improve.

  4. All team activities suspended in the B1G

  5. No fans allowed at the Nebraska Boys State Basketball Tournament

  6. Per Twitter, today - 02022020 - is the first format-agnostic palindrome day in 909 years (since 11111111)

    1. Moiraine

      Moiraine

      Nevermind!

      I think the next one, but just in the American format, is 12022021. But those probably aren't rare. In fact I just thought of one; 11022011.

  7. When songs from when you were in high school are on the “Classic Hits” channel...

      I heard Adele on the "classic hits" channel recently. Adele!

      I love how they have to call it "classics" these days instead of just calling it "oldies" like they used to. People like Mavric don't like being reminded that they're old. ;)

  8. Only took halfway through the first quarter for ESPN to push the "it means more for Michigan than Alabama" narrative.  

    I thought it always meant more in the $EC.

      It kind of does though. 

  9. According to my Twitter, "University of LSU" is trending.  I hear they have a great Department of Redundancy Department.

      Well, the state University of Louisiana at the University of LSU is one of the better Universities in Louisiana state.

  10. Only a couple more days to get your Donkey Bowl picks in.  Contest in the Shed

  11. Kids school christmas program tonight.  My son is excited because the baritone part he plays in Jingle Bells is a harmony part that he says sounds a lot like Bohemian Rhapsody. #winning

      I think I know who turned him onto Bohemian Rhapsody.  

  12. 1750 miles of driving in the past 59 hours.  That's enough.

      They have these things called airplanes that make traveling more convenient. :D

      Unfortunately you have to live near those things call airports to take advantage of said airplanes.  :D

       

      It would have been a three hour drive to the airport, get there two hours early, two hour flight, an hour or better getting out of the airport and getting the rental car and another hour drive to Waco.  So that's at least 9 hours of travel time to fly vs about 12 hours to drive.  And it was a bit cheaper on the ground.

  13. Huskers > Duke

      That was a pretty good game.

      But the Ramblin' Wreck game, not so much.  :(

  14. Alabama and Auburn must not care about unspecial teams.

  15. Refs trying to hand it to Alabama.  Auburn takes it 100 yards the other way.

      Go looks at Minnesota’s first 8 games. Great win yesterday, but I’ll wait to see what they do these next 3 weeks.

      @Waldo have you looked at Alabama's first 8 games?

    4. B.B. Hemingway

      Minnesota, but Alabama would beat them by 30-40.

  17. Watching Joe Burrow on one screen and Max Duggan on the other....

      I was surprised to see Max Duggan starting for TCU

  18. Since losing to Nebraska by 25 last year, Minnesota is 13-2

      After seeing them take down #4 Penn State I feel slightly less bad about our loss.  Slightly.  

  19. Illinois with the chance to knock off Wisconsin...

  20. San Francisco might be worse at kicking field goals than Nebraska....
