  1. So what was the story with all  those drones from months ago? I don’t recall/remember ever hearing  the explanation.

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      They were spreading the coronavirus.

  2. Was it 2012 when we beat Penn State in Lincoln running basically the same pitch play to the right side 25 times?

  3. What did you guys do to the twitter embeds? 

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      They were skinny for a few days.  Then back to normal.  And now skinny again.

       

      Basically on the Jessica Simpson diet.

      I don't think I'd bet at -300 but I think he makes it now.

      @Xmas32 Thanks for the recommendation.  I live just outside Omaha ... about 350 miles outside it.  ;)

      Probably not.  I'm just not a fan of deli meat sandwiches.  Which is probably why I've never been to a really good one.  That and ... you know ... not a lot of those options here.

  7. Who is the last 2020 scholarship for? Per this article, there's one scholarship left (and it cites Nadab Joseph as a target), but it seems to imply that Spielman's scholarship would be open as well.

     

    Who would that be for? A current walk-on given a final-year scholarship for his hard work? A recruit?

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      Yes, the limit is now 25 new signees per cycle (class).  We've already taken 24.  So the one scholarship mentioned in the article @knapplc posted above is for anyone new to the program.  We could still give unused scholarships to walk-ons up to the 85 max but 25 is the limit for any one year.

      Find a drive through so I don't have to eat a deli sandwich.

      We can only take one more newcomer this year.  The thinking was we were looking for a receiver but Nadab Joseph showed up out of nowhere and now that seems likely.

       

      Spielman's departure opens up a scholarship but it would have to go to someone already in the program so an extra walk-on gets a bump.

  10. On a scale of 1-10, how irritated and/or pissed should I be that one of the people I share my Netflix account with (brother/sister-in-law, mother/father-in-law) upgraded my Netflix account to the Ultra HD package without asking me? You have to do it from a logged in computer and not the app.

    Bear in mind that I've never once asked any of them to help pay for it, but none of them have ever offered, either. It's only a $4/month difference, but to not even ask or gives a heads up?

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      I would say probably not pissed but definitely irritated.  That's pretty tacky.  Maybe they didn't really realize what they were doing?

  11. Random question: are football tickets subject to sales tax?

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      I've never seen a sales tax line on my ticket invoices from the University.  Unless they are rolling it into the price on their side (i.e., tickets sell for $60 but they already included the tax in that amount).

  12. Oldest piece of clothing that you still have?

    I think mine is a frat sweatshirt @ColoradoHusk should remember it, blue one and the elbows are totally gone.

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      I still have some NBA jerseys that I had in high school (25-ish years ago).  They are in my kids box of different costumes that they bring out every now and then.  I don't wear them anymore for fear of being mocked on HuskerBoard.

       

      The oldest thing I still wear is a winter coat I got in college (20-ish years ago).  It was on sale at JC Penny.  It was two sizes too big but it was cheap and I figured it didn't matter for a winter coat.  I only wear it when I'm going to be outside for a long time (running the snow blower, mainly) so it only comes out a couple times per year.

  13. What's up with tweets embedding differently today? Was there a software update overnight?

      So now they're not embedding at all???

      Could be.  I was trying to find something on the IP.Board but haven't found anything.  I did find some stuff from a couple years ago that said it was a Twitter issue so that would be my guess here as well.

      Now I see what you're talking about.  I didn't think it was doing that to me yesterday.  Or even this morning.  Perhaps I just wasn't paying enough attention.

      Not sure I guess.  I've posted quite a few and haven't noticed anything different.  :dunno

  20. What expectations do Broncos homers have for Melvin Gordon this year?

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      Kind of surprised they signed him given they were already in decent shape at RB and probably needed help more elsewhere.

       

      Sucks that every time I see him play I'm going to be reminded of ... well.... you know...

       

      Excited to see their offense this year.  They have some weapons.

  21. Orange juice is superior to apple and grape juice. Come at me, fellow kids.

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      I definitely go orange juice here.  Which is a bit odd because in basically any other setting I prefer grape flavor.  But not grape juice.  :dunno

  22. Watching the 1993 Orange Bowl on NBCSports and William Floyd loses that ball a whole lot further from the goal line then I recall.  Oh and this is a great refresher on how you used to be able to play defense

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      I've long said it's crazy how much the end of the Texas game mirrored the end of this game.  Score to go ahead.  Kickoff out of bounds.  Personal Foul penalty on our defense to help them out.  One second back on the clock.  FG at the end.

       

      We got a horse collar call against Texas but basically the same thing.

      Also didn't remember that Bennett has missed his last four FGs coming into the game.  Ouch.

      Wow.  I didn't remember the gift call we got on the go-ahead FG drive.  Clester Johnson didn't come close to catching that pass.
