    2018 mid-term

    Because they, elites, run for office more often than working class people. And from a book I read, it said people tend to allow the elites that get politics to figure it out. Basically, people vote for elites that they like because they most likely know more about politics/what is best for the country than they do. Elites will always vote and run for office, so they can get funding and stuff done for them well ahead of time too. I am just trying to explain this not agreeing/disagreeing with what you said although I like your line of thinking.
  2. Quit jumping to conclusions so fast. They deserved the number one overall seed with that brutal schedule. With this, the regular season and postseason are two different animals. However, in basketball upsets can happen more often. One night you can shoot 60 percent and the next shoot low thirties. Virginia got outplayed and probably overlooked UMBC. Bennett gave them the credit they deserved and now they move on. Not sure how that deals with Nebraska making the tourney or not. Our schedule was cupcake soft and we didn't get enough quality wins to make it in. The eye test proves we were the beneficiary of an easy schedule, just ask UCF football as they will again be left out for playing an easy schedule. I was as mad as the next guy we didn't make it, but in my mind, they got it right to leave us out. I believe we should have had a home game in the NIT though.

    JUCO LB Amare Barno

    Same hometown and Community College as Will Honas. That will be a good connection for us. Would love to have this kid here.
  4. Uhh no. It was evident we were not motivated at all to play that game against MSU in the NIT. Also, Miss. State is in the top 25 right now so they seem to be trending upward. Virginia was a great team but an injury to that 6th man hurt them immensely. They got outplayed by a team with a chip on their shoulder with some decent players. The NIT is on a whole different level and if we were worthy of making the tourney, we would have gone a lot farther than the first round.

    *** 2019 Recruiting ***

    Or a legit player who was literally in our backyard that we passed on because of measurables. It was awesome we took an in-state kid in Mapieu but it was evident he had academic issues. This still boggles my mind that we didn't at least pursue Bryson at all under Riley.

    Miles Jones Out for the Year

    Bummer, hopefully, he can put it together for us next year. Big things to come yet for Miles! And a speedy recovery is necessary.

    DE Ty Robinson

    He has to be at the top of our board. We need this guy more than Wandale. Games are won and lost at the line of scrimmage and right now we just don't have a guy that can be a threat to sack the QB. We have some guys that get there sometimes but we need that player to just get us over the hump and be a force that offenses have to account for. Once we get that type of player, it opens up others to make plays.

    *** 2019 Recruiting ***

    Yes, and Hunt, McQuitty and Mike Williams get up to speed.

    OT Bryce Benhart [Nebraska Commit]

    Can he sign his letter of intent early and not enroll until June? I say June because isn't that when the Feb. signees enroll?

    *** 2019 Recruiting ***

    We have our kicker for four years and Armstrong will be solid for next year. We need a grad-transfer rushing OLB. Tannor needs to get up to speed and hopefully, Guy Thomas steps up as well. And we need another young one to develop or potentially play right away. A grad transfer receiver or o-lineman/d-lineman/safety may not be bad either.

    Next year addition and subtraction

    Word is Dixon has to take care of off-field issues before he sees playing time. Jurgens will need another year to beef up but will play some. Expect Bland to play the center position until Jurgens is ready. OL Depth LT: Jameis, Gaylord LG: Wilson, Raridon C: Bland, Jurgens, W. Farniok RG: Raridon, Hixon RT: M. Farniok, Benhart, Sichterman Once Benhart is game ready Farniok will slide to guard. That could happen as soon as next year depending on Raridon's development. Also, if Jurgens is game ready Bland will slide over to guard as well. I think 2020 is when Jurgens starts at center. Wilson will be a stud for us down the road and Jameis will continue to improve. Benhart and Farniok should be a nice rotation on the right side. We just need to build solid depth behind these guys and next year is when we will really rotate lineman in. However, the center doesn't seem like a good spot to do that unless the game is out of reach.
  12. The team's shooting was not great but we got the win. We have a lot to clean up but with that a lot of time to do it as well. Any given night you can shoot 50 plus percent and others it can be in the thirties that's just how it goes sometimes. Although, three-point shooting needs improvement if they are gonna chuck it a lot from downtown.

    WR Wandale Robinson [Kentucky Commit]

    Wandale knows what will happen. When he announces tomorrow. He is going to announce Kentucky tomorrow most likely. However, this battle is not over yet. I think it is really close and could go either way by early NSD. One player does not make or break a team, but this guy is a game changer. Basically Rondale Moore but not as polished. His talent does not sit and he will contribute right away wherever he goes.

    WR Wandale Robinson [Kentucky Commit]

    Yea who really knows. It could be tonight a Wildcat and tomorrow when he announces a Husker. My take is that something happened that swayed him to stay home. It could have been family/girlfirend/$EC bagman/distance or whatever. Regardless, this battle is not over until December 20th. Couple that with a tireless recruiter in Ryan Held and we should have a solid back up plan.
