    This is the kind of s#!t that pisses me off and why honest debate is so hard.

    Trump Foreign Policy

    I thought this is worth it's own thread. His foreign policy is going to have huge ramifications on many Americans and America in general for many years to come. Here is the first public relations bomb thrown by terrorists. It's going to be interesting to see how he responds. If he pulls out now, it's going to appear that he was told what to do by a guy living in a cave in Afghanistan somewhere. Will his ego be so big that he sends more troops in to go after this guy?

    Russia

    I think this is getting to the point where Russia needs it's own thread. I have been putting a lot of Russia stuff in other threads, but this is getting serious and deserves it's own topic. Opensecrets.org McClatchyDC.com Their actions are far greater than trying to hack into our election computers. And....our President is complicit with it.

    Husker Offense Looking for "Plus Twos"

    I agree. It’s just much more difficult to accomplish that now on a reagulat basis with the equalization of strength and nutrition.

    Lawfair is one of the most knowledgeable feeds I follow on Twitter. It’s laughable that someone thinks they a liberal shill.

    Yeah....that tweet made me say a few choice words. Glad and it’s just a blister.

    Daum has had some horrible calls against him in the second half.

    Husker Offense Looking for "Plus Twos"

    My comments were not waxing nostalgia about the 90s. It was about comparing blocking scheme/theory.

    Husker Offense Looking for "Plus Twos"

    I somewhat agree with this. It's obviously not nearly as easy to get pancakes now compared to back in the 80s when we were one of only a few teams who actually lifted and had nutrition. So, expecting your O line to knock people down every play is a little unfair. But, I see a difference in the zone blocking mentality that you mention where you're redirecting guys.....and expecting them to be pushed two yards back.

    As with football. I won't be making any judgements on players abilities till I see what they can do with better coaching and better scheme. Who knows. Maybe one of those guys we don't think are that good will turn out to be the basketball version of Ozigbo.

    Husker Offense Looking for "Plus Twos"

    OK, educate me. Back in the day, we were coaching our linemen to blast off the ball and knock people down. We measured success in pancakes. It was awesome. This was done more with a lot of communication along the line pre snap and each guy knew who he was supposed to block. Fire off and go get him. Then, we went to this zone blocking and I remember a point in maybe Callahan's era where it came out that our OC didn't really want our linemen knocking people down. Seriously, I remember the discussions amongst fans. The argument was that defenders on the ground got in the way. They wanted the linemen to move the defender in the direction he starts and just move him farther than he wants to go so that it opens up a hole. They were supposed to move the defender more down the line in one direction or the other instead of back. So....now we have +2. I'm liking what I'm hearing. This seems to be moving back more towards old thought processes. We want to reestablish the line of scrimmage with the defenders moving back. So, am I correct in that we are going back more to what we knew and loved in the 80s and 90s where we want or guys firing off forward and attacking the guy on the other side? I am far from an expert in blocking schemes. All I know is I loved how we used to block and I hated zone blocking when it was brought to Nebraska. Teach me. Thanks.

    Fred Hoiberg To Be Named Next Nebraska Coach?

    Just to add to my last post. Think about this. If a player leaves early, that can negatively affect the team maybe 1 to 2 years. If you get the right coach, that positively affects the team for many years down the road. I'll error on getting the right coach every time even if I lose a few players in doing so.

    Fred Hoiberg To Be Named Next Nebraska Coach?

    Obviously, I hope the new coach (Fred) can keep the players he wants on the team. It would be great if everyone stayed, bought in and Hoiburg raised their level of play to contribute to a good season next year. I also hope that he can keep the recruits Miles has recruited and add to them. That said, I stopped stressing about players leaving during a coaching change a long time ago. Players have to do what is best for them. If they feel they don't want to play for one of the top two coaches on the market in front of a packed house of loyal fans every night...well....I wish you well. I would hope they give the new coach at least a chance to talk to them before just packing up their bags and leaving. We saw an amazing turn over of the roster on the football side. That's even easier to do for basketball simply because of the number of players that transfer every year and how few are on each team. It's possible to come into next year with a much better roster but totally different.

    A question that answers itself. PS....I disagree.

    Stress - Is life more stressful today?

    I think we need to consider what is being considered "stress". Yes, if you're struggling to make ends meet and you're working two jobs and about to take bankruptcy and lose your home....THAT'S obviously stress that all of us can understand. However, there are other forms of stress in our lives that we don't think about. Seeing a news broadcast 24/7 on a missing child in Wisconsin, we think we see it and are sad for that person, but move on. In reality, it adds a little more stress to our lives. When my cell phone doesn't work, it adds a little more stress to my life. I use it for work. It's part of me. When my computer at work goes caput. It adds stress. I don't use cash for anything so when my card doesn't work, it adds stress. When you're scrolling through facebook and you see a forwarded article on some made up conspiracy, it adds stress. Are any one of those items things that destroys someone's life or are horrible events in the grand scheme of the world? No. People can poo poo all this you want. But, it does contribute to people's (un)happiness and overall contentment. Which....over time, can cause depression and other severe issues. And...no, I still don't believe life is more stressful now than in the 60s. But, it's still an issue that people need to be aware of.

    The Flood of 2019

    That 200 miles of roads, I believe, is an understatement. They might be just talking about paved roads. I live on 8 miles of gravel roads to get home. I'm struggled to get to find a road that wasn't torn up to get to work this morning. They started being OK, but then we got about another inch of rain last night. Our county alone is going to be spending all summer doing nothing be trying to get the gravel roads back to normal. My wife works for a large road construction company. They have been told to put all construction projects they were planning on doing on hold and prepare to work on storm damaged roads instead.

    True. But, too many Fox watchers spend their evenings watching all of those opinion shows and not enough just watching the news broadcasts.
