  1. If it is one from each column...Solich and Frost are not in the same coaching ballpark as Devaney and TO. For the type of offense that will be run, Rogers or Fryar will be a better fit than Swift or Bell. That means the QB/RB option is either Frost/Ameer, or Crouch/Rex. I'll go with Rogers, Osborne, Frost (QB), Ameer.
  2. This is a 73 year old man who subsists on a diet of nothing but fast food, avoids any exercise, stares at the sun, denigrates any form of medical and environmental science, goes in raw on porn stars, willingly exposes himself to Covid-19, and thrives on pure malevolence. He is likely not susceptible to any conventional method of death. He is like a mythical creature who can only be destroyed by a magical talisman of some sort.
  3. Early mitigation? Nebraska and Ricketts did jack $h!t for mitigation.
  4. Lebron and Jordan have different styles of play, and they are both very comparable in terms of overall talent, IMO. But what really set Jordan apart was his competitive fire. He didn't want to win, he needed to win, and would step on your throat when he had the chance. When it was time to take over a game, his sheer will became more powerful than his talent. Lebron is great, but his fire never burned the way Jordan's did. If the championship is on the line, you would want the ball in Jordan's hands 10 times out of 10 compared to Lebron.

    Those are all great selling points for the guy, but due diligence would also show that the guy had a career .500 record and was never in any sort of championship discussion outside of Canada. I never bought the idea that Riley turned around one of the worst programs ever (Bill Snyder he ain't). When he left Oregon State for a couple of years, Dennis Erickson quickly came in and took them to a BCS bowl. Riley returned and they went back to being a mediocre program. It is also disingenuous to say that he outcoached Carroll, Harbaugh, and Kelly. In what, one game? One big upset every year or two is not a career. Yes, there was reason for optimism (one of the reasons being we were stuck with him for a couple years no matter what), but at no time did the evidence actually suggest that he was going to be wildly successful here.

    If Nuance is trying to make the point that if donors had not contributed to the coaching buyouts, that their money may have gone toward some more desirable purpose, I don't think anyone would debate that logic. But that still has nothing to do with taxpayers. The hypothetical of a taxpayer burden would only work IF the athletic department was not a self-sustaining business and IF UNL did not have rich and influential donors throwing money around and IF the athletic department were funded with public money. But if all of these hypotheticals were true, UNL would not have been in a position to invest so much into coaching salaries and facilities, and they would have taken a much more conservative approach to their hirings and firings, with more oversight. The very small handful of schools whose athletic departments make big profits are able to absorb these exorbitant salaries, including buyouts of sucky coaches. If these decisions had any impact whatsoever on public funding, they would be in a heap of trouble from the state. The school would simply not be allowed to be so cavalier with these coaching contracts if they were beholden to the taxpayer. The hypothetical, and this whole conversation, is silly.
  7. It sounds like you take the bible literally?
  8. Not one honest person on this board, not for a second, will believe that Joe suddenly cares about sexual assault, victims rights, or credible evidence.
  9. I was at that Missouri game, with the marching band on the far side of the field. Couldn't see a damn thing that happened in the endzone. The clock hit 00:00, students started rushing the field to attack the goal posts, refs were talking, and then the announcer said "Touchdown Nebraska." Confusing, but awesome. Didn't know how it happened until watching the reply the next day.
  10. Yep. That game had so many intriguing storylines and so many demons to be exorcised, and then the dramatic turns of the game itself. Doesn't get any better than that. The drama and emotion of that game trumps the dominance of the following year as far as a "moment."
  11. While that article does a good job of combing through her twitter "likes" in order to show questionable motives, it is clearly written as a hit piece. There are differences and similarities between this case and the Ford/Kavanaugh case. With Kavanaugh, the alleged victim recalled many credible details of the night in question, which lined up with many other facts that we later heard about Kavanaugh. It painted a very credible picture. However, there were certain other details that were quite fuzzy, which can reasonably be attributed to the passage of time and the traumatic responses that occur in the minds of many victims. In the Reade/Biden case (unless it has been posted and I haven't seen it), the same detail has not been shared, so the story hasn't really come into focus...yet. Her twitter history and thoughts on Putin are intriguing, but does not provide strong evidence either way regarding the sexual assault claim. She does not necessarily have the same credibility that Ford did. I will admit to not having read all of the information yet. HOWEVER: we should take caution with jumping to conclusions on this case any differently than we jumped to conclusions in the Kavanaugh case, and be aware of our political biases. The same discussion we had back then still holds true: sexual assault victims might give inconsistent details, rationalize their attackers' behaviors (and their own), and choose not to come forward right away (if at all) for a variety of very legitimate reasons. When Ford came forward, many of us championed her courage and bristled at the right wings attacks on her. Let's not swing too far in the opposite direction now. In any such case, the evidence needs to be considered, and it is fair to question political motives. But some of the response so far borders on many of the same reasons that some victims never come forward at all. We are living in strange times. It is okay to be skeptical of everything we see and hear, but we must also acknowledge our own biases as we try to discern fact from fiction.
  12. I don't understand the premise of the OP. Who exactly is blaming the Coronavirus on god? For those of you who are devout believers: what is god's role in this? Does he/she have the power/will/desire to help the world? How? Why?
  13. You are entitled to an informed opinion. Your current thoughts are not well-informed. They are horse$h!t. Now, as I said before, good day, sir.
  14. @Thurston from Pender, I've never had a warning on this board, and I believe wholeheartedly in civil conversation, so I say this to you with as much compassion and respect as I can muster, knowing that this virus has disrupted every facet of life in this country and around the world: The dumbass views that you are spouting are ignorant and irresponsible, and can lead to people getting sick or dying. Please get that BS the hell out of here. That is all. Good day.
  15. This whole situation sucks for everyone, some more than others. I hope all of you Huskerboarders and your families are staying safe and healthy and that you have everything you need in order to hunker down for a while. While there may not be much we can do to change things right now, let's use this thread to list some positive things that are happening as we adjust to the new reality. - We are developing some good, healthy habits with food at home. We used to go out or order out way too much and have been meaning for a long time to do a better job making meal plans and eating healthier. Now we are forced into doing so, and our habits and health are benefiting from it. - My wife and I have reconnected in positive ways. Like many married couples (15 years), we had settled into a rut that gets us by with our day to day routines but we hadn't really been working on our own relationship. Now that we are in the house 24 hours a day together, our spark as a team has been reignited. Planning together, cooking together, enforcing appropriate boundaries with the kids, etc has been a good thing for the two of us. - Strangely enough, I feel a little more productive working from home this week. Normally working from home is full of distractions, but since this is now going to be a normal thing, I think I might be more paranoid to prove to myself and my boss that I can get things done (plus with my wife and kids around, I want to look busy in front of them!). - It has helped me and my family realize how fortunate we are. We are able to work from home, our paychecks are not being disrupted, and we have everything we need for now. Not everyone is so lucky. Count your blessings. What silver linings are you all able to make of this?
