    The best way to find any evidence of Husker fans saying these things would be the Colorado 30 for 30.
  4. Not 100% scientific, but I ponder if NU prefers their verbals to come on separate days to give that one kid individual attention and it’s speculated that there are more commits to come. With that said, who is next up today?

      If true it's a great idea to give every commit their day in the spotlight.

      Yeah I noticed that too especially last year it seemed like it. I don't think we see anymore until Moten but I could be wrong.

      It makes logical sense.

    Holy $#@& Phil Steele

    This should be Harbaugh’s year to win with the East being down. I’m interested in that narrative as the season plays out. OSU will be down, PSU will be down, MSU would need to rebound. With the hype and $$$ behind Harbaugh, it should be his year to capitalize

    Airbnb Experience - Your thoughts?

    I don’t feel guilty retaining the excess funds considering the stress it put on my fiancé, who was presenting her research the following day at an international conference. So we had to enable international data plans, rebook our entire lodging, and other transportation expenses were incurred. If the host simply “cancelled” the reservation, it wouldn’t have come to this, but the host avoided that based on what I believe to retain “plus” or “preferred” host status. One cancellation would revoke their privileged status. The check-in was available for 3pm and we arrived at 7pm - after navigating through a 120k people protest in Prague (That was nuts). The host said that an hour prior technical difficulties occurred which caused this situation, but there was no notice until we arrived. The vibe was pretty scammy. A recommendation I read about from someone else’s experience is to reserve a backup hotel who will honor 100% refund. This was my first bad experience with Airbnb and we have used it quite a bit without major issues. I appreciate everyone’s feedback, both sides of the argument.

    Airbnb Experience - Your thoughts?

    So, the host back channeled funds to us through PayPal a week ago, before Airbnb ever followed up with us. Then, finally, Airbnb contacted us and retroactively cancelled the reservation and also refunded us.
  8. Got a question in the lounge, if you would be inclined to offer your opinion. Thank you

  9. Public Opinion: Overseas and your Airbnb host falls through. As in you get to the residence, start the check-in, use the provided codes to enter apartment building, use the directions to open lockbox where key is supposed to be, but no key. Host’s provided number is “disconnected.” Call Airbnb who says they’ll look into it and have a manager follow up, but says to work it out with host. Host contacts you 45 minutes later saying they can no longer hold the reservation. They won’t cancel the reservation on Airbnb, which would refund us. No word from Airbnb, call them the next day, same routine of “marked this case for high priority,” but still no follow up. Airbnb host, after several exchanges and refusing to “cancel” reservation, forwards funds via PayPal. 9 days after initial contact, Airbnb finally contacts us, cancels the reservation and fully refunds us. Host wants their money back which was sent via PayPal. What would you do?

    How many Huskers will transfer?

    Something about treasure and trash comes to mind. Good luck to him at OSU, kid was asked to step up a year before he was ready, but never was consistent enough. Comedic how these kids end up at OSU as if it’s a homeless shelter for Riley transfers
  11. Got two different GBRs walking though Prague today, the fiancé rolled her eyes! Haha

      Awesome...I got a couple last week while in Playa del Carmen.  They came from an ISU fan and a Mizzou fan.

      Nice! Never been, but that sounds like a great trip to go on too!

    Maybe IWCC thought the same lol
  13. I’m critical of Erstad the last 5 years, but this may actually be his best coaching year yet. They had a good start to the season, outside of getting swept by OSU, and got back on track these last few weekends after a rough April/early May. If they can put some work in next week and just show up for a chance at super regional bid, I’ll be excited to see what’s to come with the youth of this team

      Thank you for sharing. That all makes sense as to why he went with that lineup and I don’t fault him. What I will question is when you know these percentages are stacked against you, baseball is a game of percentages, then what are you going to do differently to adjust? Drag bunt down the first baseline as the lefty falls off the mound away from the bunt, get runners on and bunt and run or slap bunt? Choke up on the bat and move up and on in the box? Maybe they do teach those things, but it wasn’t working yesterday.

      What I like is that he recognizes their weaknesses and doesn’t shy away from addressing it publicly. Your opponent theoretically should already know your weaknesses, if you yourself can’t talk about a glaring problem, then you’re just fooling yourself.

      All great points SH! Like most players, I think coaches can get in a rut and have a hard time making a change or seeing the light. Perhaps he patterns his style after coaches he has had at the pro level and maybe that pattern only works well with elite players. I The slate is wiped clean and it's time to get ready for the national tournament. I hope they play well.

  14. Lost my wallet Saturday between Mouth of the South parking lot, my brothers truck, and my house and pretty sure it was in the parking lot after tearing up the truck and house. Not a lot of cash in there, a few gift cards, but mainly concerned about replacing my license, my CCW, and my debit card. Flying overseas next Friday too, so hopefully they don’t get crazy if all I have is my passport. Shoot, I also had 30¢ off my next fill-up at Kroger gas stations :facepalm:

      That’s good stuff to know, I’m going to look into that. Thank you!

      Caveat Emptor. Global Entry is great, no doubt about it.  But it does not always guarantee the precheck line skipping.  In most instances it will.  But on a rare occasion you will be forced into the regular line with the rest of the plebes.  It's never happened to be personally but I've flown with coworkers it has happened to.  Still worth it if you get plucked once or twice if you fly often.

      @darkhorse85 that actually just happened to me on our way back from Puerto Vallarta. My mother-in-law and wife also have Global Entry and we had no issues leaving the country, but on the way back, I got the ridiculous SSSS designation (for reasons I still don't understand). So, my pre-check didn't work at all on the way back, but the expressed customs portion did.

       

      I was reading a popular travel blogger's website and he said he once flew Delta, got the SSSS, and it didn't disappear for months despite calls to his senators offices, the airlines, etc. Eventually it just disappeared. I didn't have it happen until I flew Delta, too, so I hope it's not a recurring theme the next time I travel.
