    JUCO OG Desmond Bland [Nebraska Commit]

    I did my doctoral work at Florida State. I would never wish living in Tallahassee upon anyone. They don't call it "Talla-nasty" for nothing. Here's a quick pro's and con's list. Pro: 1. I could go for a run in shorts and a t-shirt any time of the year. It hit freezing a few times (everyone lost their s#!t by the way). 2. Campus had some interesting historical figures recognizing the Seminole tribe that gave the land to the state for the university 3. Southern Live Oak trees with Spanish moss. Driving down a narrow road with that as a canopy was really awesome 4. Wildlife was great. Very different for a Nebraska boy. 5. Great fishing 6. ...not sure what to put here Cons: 1. Humidity near 100% all year round 2. Year-round mosquitoes. Multiple species of mosquitoes that have their own peak breeding season throughout the year. 3. Humidity + mosquitoes in the summer. It was too damn hot that you wanted to sit outside but you had to move around outside or you were eaten alive by droves of mosquitoes. 4. The food was terrible. I have lived many places in the US, and it is easy to say that sans four restaurants (Osaka's, Decent Pizza, Aladdin's, and Whataburger), the food was crap. I remember driving through Missouri back to Nebraska and ate at a Burger King. I realized then that the crap they pass as beef in restaurants in Tallahassee was so terrible words can't describe. And, I am telling you I thought that burger was from heaven (a burger from BK). 5. No wind. The tall cypress and pine trees cut the coastal winds so the humid air just sat on you stagnant. 6. No palm trees...except at the airport (planted to trick tourists that they are in Florida not southern Georgia) 7. 3 hours+ to white sand beaches. Yes, you are 30 minutes from the coast in Tallahassee if you want to stand in the mud. Three hours to Jacksonville, Pensacola, or St. George's 8. When I first moved there, I was told "in Florida the further north you go the further south you are". The panhandle area is southern Georgia not the white sand beaches of Miami-Dade. And, you have a lot of thinly veiled racism. It's depressing to be around. 9. 3 bars a block apart for college students and they are disgusting. No other nightlife (well house parties and the like) 10. Small city, crappy traffic. Tallahassee is way smaller than Lincoln, but as the state capital with two major universities (FSU and FAMU) all downtown with only three main roads out of the downtown area to take you North, East, or Southwest, traffic sucked. I lived in DC, so no it was not that bad. But for a small city, traffic is way worse than it should be. City planning fail. 11. No zoos or interesting attractions. Really boring honestly. 12. Gun crime is really bad around the campus area. 13. You were living with c$%kroaches. Every place had them. No getting around it.

    Will our democracy survive Trump?

    Knapplc, you know the mod review process as well as any. I am not saying anything about a punishment, just that any post reported will be reviewed. If the post is determined to violate board rules, then action is warranted. Again, let's continue this conversation in another thread (if you wish) as to not derail this one.

    Will our democracy survive Trump?

    Good distinction STP. Unless a member is implying or directly stating that being a Trump supporter means someone is racist/homophobic without exception. Yes, this would be a parallel issue. Something if directed at a particular member or used in the definitive. Let me add that I do not want to derail the current conversation in this thread, so if further discussion of board rules is desired, let's make a thread for it.

    Report any post you feel compelled to along with a what you perceive as the violation of board rules. The mod team will review all cases submitted. The political forum is only a small part of Huskerboard, so we appreciate member feedback when it is provided.

    Will our democracy survive Trump?

    Absolutely. If you find yourself or another HB member is the target of insults, feel free to bring those posts to the attention of the mod team. In fact, I was just going to post this post below as something that is insulting (though not necessary directed at any one person).

    Political debate can occur without insults. This is a reminder to direct comments about the post not the poster.

    Martinez Named B1G Freshman of the Week

    That picture actually has me liking the alternative jersey. Switch back to the traditional helmet with the , and I think you got something.

    OT Hayden Conner

    I agree. Fourth visit and now he is peer recruiting by bringing his teammate Bryce Foster.

    Martinez Top-Rated B1G QB This Week

    Generation talk is really annoying. In fact, your argument is "kids these days are so full of themselves that they don't know when to quit because of how hard the competition is". Really?

    Free Runzas for Crowd Noise

    That's cool and could add to the atmosphere at PBA. Post the decibel bar during opponents free throws or important defensive moments. Could motivate the crowd to get more involved.

    May as well get hypothetical today..

    Unranked. Results before accolades.

      I think we are all hoping that guys will shut up and just go to work. Nothing else.

      IMO, Twitter and social media are nothing more than a huge problem as it relates to players, team chemistry and trying to keep players from transmitting the wrong message. Maybe the general public not seeing these things wouldn't matter or change anything but I'd be real tempted to out and out ban it's use for my players if I was a coach. What good ever comes from it?

      Even if you ban the players, their families can still tweet stupid stuff. It sounds like Noah Fant’s brother was criticizing IA coaching staff recently.
