  1. Obviously a very tough loss for the program. I'll never wish anything bad on people who transfer, as they all have their reasons for doing it. Here, it seems as if there was a family medical issue as well as other voices in his head. You can't fault someone for putting their family first as he has. Wan'Dale will be one of the few transfers we've had that I'll make sure to keep an eye on in his future. He gave his all to this team every game and took some heavy punishment for it at times. He wore the scarlet and cream proudly and was nothing but class off the field as well. Best of luck to him in the future!
  2. I knew clicking on this thread was going to be an absolute dumpster fire filled with bad takes and it did not disappoint. These kids have followed all COVID protocols and were one of the few Big Ten teams to not have any shutdowns this year because of it. That took a lot of hard work and had to have been so draining. They just finished off a 3-5 season with a win. I know that's not what fans were hoping for, but even more so, I can guarantee that's not what they were hoping for. This isn't a normal year where a bowl game would get you multiple extra weeks of practice and a game plus all the festivities that come along with the trip. They would've got an extra week (plus a few days) of practice and a game. Compare this to getting to go see your family for Christmas after this grueling year and I don't think it was a hard decision at all. If you think an extra week of practice and a fairly meaningless game is changing the trajectory of this program, I just don't see it. I would argue getting their mental health right by being with family over the holidays is more beneficial. In the end, I just think we all need to have a little more empathy for everything that these coaches and players went through this year. It's a trait that gets lost on us a lot of times.
  3. FX's Fargo is returning on Sunday with two new episodes. Definitely a series I would recommend to those who haven't watched and I can't wait for some new episodes after 3 years of layoff.
  4. My body and mind feel like there should be a game this weekend. Crazy how it gets conditioned that way after the years. Maybe it is the fall weather we are starting to get. Anyone else feeling the same way?

      I remember so well- almost playing Akron one year, losing to Colorado the next game.  Sprinkle in an almost loss to South Alabama, and yet another loss to Colorado and God forbid, Troy.  Remember these memories and you will be glad were not playing.

  6. There's sometimes a blurry line between fact and opinion but in this case there just isn't. The fact is that this virus is exponentially growing in our country and communities as expected and if we don't take the necessary precautions as we are being advised to by the medical experts who actually spend their careers researching these exact scenarios, a lot of people will die. If you choose to be ignorant to that, it's on you. But do know that your ignorance can be the direct result of people contracting this virus and spreading it potentially causing actual deaths. We have evidence from other countries to see how this plays out if we don't treat it like the threat that it is.
  7. Anyone not taking this thing seriously at this point are purposely blinding themselves. It doesn't take a whole lot of research to see how this can go badly (Italy, Spain, etc.....) and it appears we are on the same trajectory. People from those countries have been begging people to listen to them and their warnings about what can happen. Please just listen to people who are a million times smarter on this subject and have dedicated their careers to this subject. Almost unanimously they are all saying that this is a big deal because it is. Sorry for what may seem like an incoherent ramble, but it drives me crazy to see people who are still not taking this seriously because it hasn't affected them or their personal bubble yet.
  8. Wow at a spot of need too. Really thought we were out of the running for this one too, but this would be a very nice get for this staff.
  9. Time to see if we belong and I wouldn't have it any other way. I think we have to be happy with getting out of the first 6 Big ten games at 3-3 or better. A couple tough road matches the next couple games. The next 6 games after that brings some intriguing home match-ups where hopefully we can gain some ground because that next 6 games is a pretty brutal way to end the season.
  10. Incident happened in February but video just now released. How long until a suspension? Not a good look for the NFL.    http://www.tmz.com/2018/11/30/kc-chiefs-kareem-hunt-attacked-kicked-woman-surveillance-video/

      F-ing Kareem Hunt. I knew some stupid **** was going to derail the Chiefs this year.

  11. I completely agree. These Husker Hoops boards are getting to become nearly impossible to come to and read anymore because of the constant pessimism. We had a good year last year unexpectedly which should be cause for hope, and then now this year we return the main core of the team and the majority of outsiders pick us to continue that success and have another good year. This is as much optimism as there has been around the program in quite some time, and I think most people can clearly say this year's team is significantly different than the 2014-2015 team in that you can easily see the sustained success. But yet you come to this board and the majority of the talk is negative and looking past this year. Just enjoy what we have now and worry about the years after later. This is a good time to be a Husker Hoops fan.
  12. I watch a pretty significant amount of soccer and the +5 (or whatever) has always been there. Could see how it would be confusing if you were watching a match where this was not there though.
  13. Pretty good article on Bud Crawford as the lead story on ESPN's website right now

      Still kind of annoyed by this ESPN+ thing.  I subscribed, and it's actually kind of awesome if you're a fan of classic boxing, but I'm still annoyed.  

       

      Arum took him off HBO because they threw him on PPV too soon.  The whole point of going to ESPN was for the exposure.  He'd get a lot more on regular ESPN.

      It was a great article, by the way.

      Can't wait to see him beat the piss out of Jeff Horn.

  14. http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/education-not-income-predicted-who-would-vote-for-trump/ I honestly think this article has a lot to do with this whole situation
  15. That's a very powerful article and sadly more true than it should be. Until we do something about this problem, whether it be funding more mental health research to diagnose the issue, passing common sense legislation such as not allowing those that are mentally ill to legally purchase a gun, or as a society becoming more informed voter and getting people in Washington that will better represent their constituents, the question will always remain......WHO, WHERE, and HOW MANY? That's something I don't want to accept and I hope Americans around the country agree.
