  1. Man, people in the media ripping on Stenson Bennet for being 25 and playing against 19 years old...interesting.

      He's got nothing on 28 year old Chris Weinke winning the Heisman.

  5. Was in CO this weekend. On Monday morning I was leaving Denver and was listening to their “Altitude Sports” radio station featuring Brett Kane (formerly of 93.7 The Ticket). Him and two other goofballs were absolutely trashing Michigan St and talking about how Mel was committed to CU. Funny how things work out.

      Any desire I’ve had to move to CO has pretty much been snuffed out. Not anything close to the town I fell in love with when I was younger. Lemme ski a few times a year and I’m set

      Yeah, I think part of it is just hamming it up for the audience. I can only imagine how they were back in the day.

      I’m sure he’s a good dude. I thought he did a pretty solid job here and he seems to be doing well for himself.

       

      Ha, I was trying to. That traffic is brutal. That city has changed so much

  8. I’m usually pretty “over” a loss the day after the game, if not an hour or two after. It doesn’t ruin my day/weekend/week like it did when I was 10 years old. But I gotta admit, for the life of me, I cannot get this one out of my head.

      @NUance I was at that game, and yes that sucked bad. But I had that same lingering thought of “Well we’ll still get 8-9 wins and go to a bowl” seemed to ease the pain a bit. 
       

      Additionally, 2017 sucked but we got Scott and that felt like a huge win. We had regained hope. 2018 sucked but we ended pretty strong and there was this sense of “It’s starting to happen.”

       

      Nothing has felt good about 2019, nor does it seem to indicate 2020 or 2021 will be any different.

  9. I stopped by my grandpa’s today, and he’s been going thru a bunch of stuff lately. He and grandma were big Husker fans. He had some hanky towel thing out, that said


    “GO HUSKERS! Down with the candy police THUGS!”

     

    It looked pretty vintage. He had no recollection as to who or what the “Candy Police Thugs” were. Anyone know?

      @MLB 51 Hadn’t considered that. My money would be on Kansas St. A buddy and I speculated on it being something along the lines of what @NUance suggested. Like maybe some kids were trying to sell candy outside of the stadium to raise money for a Girl/Boy scouts, and the U booted em off for not having a permit or some ticky tack thing.

      @MLB 51 Nope. I asked Gpa but he couldn’t remember. They had season tickets from the 50’s thru the late 00’s. I’m guessing it’s from the 70’s.

  16. Is it just me or did Adrian look injured?  He was SO off today!  He looked like he was either physically injured or wasn't feeling well. (Flu?) Our O-Line needs some major work but our defense looked pretty decent.  Those penalties killed us.

      He looked like he received really bad news right before kick off or something. Just kinda distracted.

  17. What did you do for your 21st B-day?  Mine sucked...it fell on Easter Sunday AND only one of my roommates at the time was 21...we hit up Sandy's and Iggy's...I forgot my DL so we had to go back home and come back...then I ended up puking in the bushes.

      My 21st was during dead week. Not ideal, but I had a pretty solid group of friends come out to Buffalo Wild Wings to pregame, then hit O St. Duffy's, the Downtown, Iggy's, Fat Toad. Rail to close it out. Closing time was 1AM so the festivities came back to the house I lived at with some high school buds.

  21. If you own a pick up truck, what percentage of time would you say you use it for an intended purpose vs. using it as a means of pure transportation from Point A to B.

    1. Fru

      Fru

      Never owned a truck, but for a few years I had a Ford Expedition, which was essentially a truck (and was far more car than a twenty-something needed) I'd say it was 85% transportation, 15% towing/utility. Pulled our family boat nicely, was great for ski trips, used it to move a few times. Like I said, I didn't need quite that much car, but there were lots of times it came in handy.

      FWIW I'll be the first to admit I haven't always been the best version of myself over there (not saying that's the case for you).

       

      Logical, well thought out, and sourced discourse is always good. Drive by potshots that muddy the conversation add nothing to the threads. Opposing views backed with facts, logic, stats etc only help strengthen arguments.

  23. So, Weezer dropped an album full of covers, and I don't hate it? Start here:

      The Stand By Me track is pretty Weezerfied. A lot of them sound almost identical to the original until he starts singing.
