  1. If you are giving advice to that particular poster, you should've just stopped right here. There's no way that poster is old enough to purchase beer. Since the rest of us are simply making $h!t up about what happened and why, here's what I think: Barthel and Allen planned this all in advance. Barthel wanted to make an early example out of one of the top players, so he told Allen to purposely dog it on this one rep and made sure that someone was there recording it. They knew it would generate some overinflated offseason discussion among us rubes, and that every player on the team would see it. It gives all of these kids an early wake up call, it makes a public show of accountability and tough love from our coaches, and it sets the stage for a good redemption story when Allen is named starter in August. Barthel gets a raise. Everyone wins!
  2. I also find myself rooting for CU... ...to lose every fu#king game in every fu#king sport no matter who the fu#k those fu#kers play against. But Boulder is otherwise fun to visit.
  3. When you said "just became aware of the issue," did you mean you just found out what was causing it? Because you mentioned an update a month and a half ago but nothing has changed. Or did you mean you just became aware that this was a problem? Because that is not true; this issue has been plaguing users for well over a year.
  4. This does not seem atypical for a college professor. Probably a little full of herself. Probably goes a bit too far in asserting her own political views but might be outraged if someone else said something that opposed her (pure speculation, not everyone is like this). However, I believe that introducing diverse viewpoints and seeking inclusivity is not necessarily political and actually should be a goal in the classroom. Thanks for sharing the info, but how do you define “woke”?
  5. How exactly do you define "woke"?
  6. Look at this pathetic kiss-a$$ and laugh at anyone who supports this loser, let alone gives him any respect:
  7. Zeta-Jones must have gotten a new agent or something. I haven't seen her do anything for years, but now she pops up on two new series. Wednesday is very clever and entertaining. CZJ is also the bad guy in a new National Treasure series on Disney+. However, that show is terrible. My family loves the National Treasure movies, but we only watched a couple episodes of the new series. It is garbage. Disney has been trying to shoehorn too many of its profitable franchises into lackluster series for their streaming service. Willow sucks. The Marvel and Star Wars content is hit or miss. Every new Simpsons short is an abomination of sadness.
  8. I know you already know this...but the comparisons to Nazis is not about concentration camps. Not yet anyway. Those camps were a horrific byproduct from a fascist government that was not stopped. The comparison between the Nazis and GOP starts with the outright fascist tendencies that they share. Characteristics that you apparently value. Demonizing minorities and immigrants, hypernationalism, fear mongering, consolidating power, suppressing and banning critical viewpoints, disregarding democratic values and human values...
  9. That will make it easier to ignore when Repubs start banning books and classes about the topic next.
  10. This is what I needed to see on Huskerboard this Friday afternoon.
  11. Man...the 4th quarter of that Orange Bowl...The drama. The backstory. The monkeys on backs. Those cocky Miami muckerfuthers. The blood, sweat, and tears. And then the win. There is simply nothing better than that 4th quarter.
  12. The '94 Nebraska team was more about perseverance than actual dominance. Losing Frazier to a blood clot, then Berringer to a collapsed lung, starting a 3rd string QB on the road against a Top 10 opponent, playing the national championship game on the opponent's home field where they had been nearly unbeatable. That team was tough and overcame a lot of challenges. But they never lost a game, which Georgia did in '21. Meanwhile, the only challenge the '95 Husker team had to overcome was the LP situation. They beat the $h!t out of everybody. Georgia rolling over TCU was nice, but TCU (aside from their own fun, scrappy season) was not nearly the contender Florida was in 95. Florida was clearly better than anyone else in the country that year, until Nebraska ate their souls. Georgia beat Missouri by 4, Kentucky by 10, OSU by 1. Nebraska was more dominant overall and more consistent throughout the season.
  13. "In my universe, Bo is still the coach, and he is allowed to actually EAT one of the referees each week. Now tell me about your universe!"
  14. Having Betts and IGC come back will make the WR room feel like a Marvel movie: bringing back these old characters who appeared in prior episodes, to team up with the new characters for the final battle. At some point late in the season when we really need a spark, Kenny Bell is going to walk through an interdimensional portal to tell us he still has some eligibility.
  15. So before we get into another one of Archy's attempts to muck up a conversation by getting nitpicky about one specific detail (I'm afraid we are already there though), let's remember that this particular point started when he responded to this: with this: The general comment and discussion is about Republican's failures and BS, but Archy wants to make it specifically about the House. It is true that the House passed a bill in 2017, which is what Archy wants to hang his hat on. His links show that. Way to go GOP! But that was not the same bill that McCain voted against. When it got to the Senate, the Republicans changed it, with a plan to defund and dismantle Obamacare, and come out with their replacement plan a couple of months later. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/11/21/recurring-gop-myth-about-john-mccains-no-obamacare-repeal/ Oh yes, there is Archy's boy Rand Paul going to work again. So the GOP Senator's changed it to repeal, but had no plan for replacement. McCain's concerns are mentioned here: https://www.nbcnews.com/health/obamacare/mccain-hated-obamacare-he-also-saved-it-n904106 and the statement from McCain's office: https://www.npr.org/2017/07/27/539907467/senate-careens-toward-high-drama-midnight-health-care-vote Sounds like the way today's GOP handles everything else, honestly. What a bunch of f&*k-ups. The GOP did not have a replacement. In the months and years following this, they still have yet to offer a replacement. The GOP House passed a bill that the GOP-controlled Senate could not pass, even when they changed the plan and changed the rules. Is this the point you are trying to make, Archy? Is this your defense of the Republicans when it comes to Healthcare. This is your Republican Utopia. They have no answers for anything, except chaos and disinformation.
  16. Because you are making $h!t up. While it is difficult to keep up with the long list of GOP lies, failures, and obfuscations, one of their most well-known failures is that they never had a plan to replace Obamacare. They tried to defund/repeal/dismantle Obamacare, which is what McCain voted against, but the reason he voted against it was because there was no plan to replace. We kept hearing the falsitude for a while that the actual plan was going to come out a few weeks later, but it never did.
  17. That's great news, Mr. Santos! What are some of your favorite highlights of the R's healthcare plan?
  18. I know jack $h!t about coaching football, and I'll go ahead and trust Rhule's process until it works or it fails, but if the posts quoted above is our current mindset, and if it is not such a problem to hire inexperienced 20-year olds to coach a position they have never played or coached before, why was it so important to have such a large salary pool for the assistants?
  19. I didn’t already see it in this thread, but apparently Matt Davison is the head of this thing. His Twitter handle says he is president. I kinda thought Matt had outlived his usefulness to the program, but whatever.
  20. I agree with the above. Casey did some good things with his feet, but there was very little rushing by design. In the Northwestern game, he had a damn impressive scramble after breaking a tackle, keeping his balance, and completing a deep pass, turning a big loss into a big gain. He has the right mojo as an athlete and seems to be a good leader/teammate. Unfortunately, one onside kick later that same game, and the season was already over.
  21. I was also impressed by Rhule's presser yesterday. I liked what we said about the OL...didn't necessarily believe him but I liked it. And I trust his ability to diagnose issues and make improvements, what we don't know is how quick it will happen. To be fair, I liked everything I heard out of Frost in his first year as well. But Rhule seems different. More mature, more organized, more professional, and measured confidence instead of bravado. Goddammit I hope this works out.
  22. Thanks for explaining some of your perspective, it is honestly appreciated. I hope you stick around and continue to engage. There are still tons of questions and debatable viewpoints stemming from this post. But for now, it is still unclear what specific solutions/policies Trump or the GOP have proposed in these areas to actually make things better for Americans.
  23. Can you explain the mess at the border? And where does this rank as a priority for Americans? Which Dem policies on crime do you think should be undone? And what problems would be solved by undoing these policies? What do you mean by this? What policies do you favor that are different than the Dems? Like what? And again, what problems would be solved by undoing these education policies? Again, you said, "I think Trumpsters are looking for his policies without the crazy." What were Trump's specific policies that you and your people embraced, other than the wall? Please don't interpret these posts as an attack. You are the one that brought up Trump's policies, and we want to know more and gain some insight into your thought process. You see, our "leftist" viewpoints did not see Trump proposing actual policies. We saw him use the rhetoric of racism, smiting ones enemies, demonizing liberals, and outright chaos to try to hold onto power and enrich himself. The GOP did not even put out an actual platform or legislative agenda the last couple of elections. We know that their kooky rhetoric has garnered a lot of votes, but since you brought up policy...are Republicans actually interested in policy at all? This is why we have so many questions, and you are the only one around here to ask.
