  1. Warren is not an infectious disease expert. That's what I wrote. Both Buffett and Hinderaker know that this Wuhan virus thing is going to end soon. Hinderaker's point is that with local governments' shutting down the economy, they are doing more harm than good. It is an unnecessary panic. And when there is panic, Warren buys. He's smart. Are you?
  2. How about this? Omaha resident, UNL alum and formerly the richest man in the Universe is not an expert on infectious diseases. But we will shortly find out that Warren Buffett will have spent much of his $120 billion in cash investing in American companies. My money is with Warren. Warren Buffett has always made money for his partners. When there is blood in the streets, he buys. The panic is worse than the Wuhan virus. We Masters of the Universe all think the same. Proud to note that Warren is a UNL alum!!
  3. BigRedBuster: John Hinderaker is very numerate. He's cross examined hundreds of experts in various technical fields in jury trials throughout the country. Dismiss his opinions if you must, but I'm confident that his views will prove way more accurate than the "expert" who predicted 56% of the CA population will get infected. We will see shortly who is correct. My money's on Hinderaker.
  4. Here's the link. Read the comments. Many smart people agree with him. There are two sides to this story. https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/03/stop-the-insane-overreaction.php
  5. The "experts" in California have predicted up to 56% of the total population will be infected with the Wuhan virus. Note well "up to" or "could" in the Governor's letter. That prediction is all based upon assumptions. Change the assumptions and the prediction changes. It probably assumes a long life of the virus on surfaces and a high R factor. Also, no effective treatments. Just watch. Using the right drugs will stop this thing cold. One other point that I learned from my superior education at the University of Nebraska. The Fake News is using the old "ticking clock
  6. The author is a Dartmouth and Harvard grad. Somewhat famous. Very successful.
  7. Big Ten title is now a lock; provided, however, we do our Ritual Exorcism before the season starts. Spring game?
  8. Iowa - 27 Nebraska - 24 I begged you people to conduct the ritual before the Iowa game. But noooo. And looked what happened! I rest my case.
  9. Completely agree. Free Speech and Deep Thought are pointless. Big questions for me: What kind of defense do we run in the Red Zone against OSU and who will be our third string right OT next season. Important stuff.
  10. You need not have studied Joseph Campbell to understand the vital importance of ritual and myth in society. All you need to have done is see a Star Wars movie. Larry Kasdan wrote the first Star Wars movie. He's a Michigan man and he took the course multiple times. Luke Skywalker is the good character. Darth Vader is the evil character. Spoiler alert: Darth is Luke's father! And on and on. Kasdan tapped into many ancient myths and themes in Star Wars. Here in Nebraska we have our Tunnel Walk. First the music. Perfect modern martial music. The armored warri
  11. I have it on good authority (the mods here) that there is absolutely no "banging" going on at UNL as I was penalized for suggesting that there was. There certainly was no banging going on when I was there. And there was absolutely no banging when Willa Cather graduated in 1894. Willa, Louise Pound, Roscoe Pound and I used to play tennis and I always had my doubts about Willa. And what's up with the lawyers here? Defining "relevant" and other word games. Ha! The Ritual Exorcism is the Categorical Imperative to restore Nebraska's relevance.
  12. I thought the girls at UNL were the squarest and the fairest. When did this activity start happening? This "banging."
  13. 1. The speed lives down South. It is cold in Nebraska. Lots of players make their decision based on that. 2. Evaluation of recruits is an inexact science. How many top recruits have bombed out in college? 3. Chemistry between the coach and the player is very subjective. 4. Nebraska has never been relevant on the national stage in the lifetime of the recruits. It's like going to Gopher stadium and seeing all the national titles for Minnesota and the first thought is, "Minnesota was a football champion?" 5. To have a championship football team, y
  14. Blitz: Can you read? The former staff was so, so bad that they couldn’t recognize the obvious talent of a future Heisman winner. And he was Mr. Ohio Football to boot. Wild mismanagement and pure stupidity under the former regime. Nebraska has a long, long way to go. At least 10 years. Now do you get it? Or, in your opinion, am I trolling you?
  15. Blitz: The failure to recruit a future Heisman winner - whose Dad played for Nebraska - just highlights how low Nebraska has sunk and how far it has to go. UNL would lose by 60 points to LSU. And there’s nothing more intellectually cowardly than to call for censorship on this board.
  16. Burrow won the Heisman. He’s really good!
  17. TV guy said he wanted to play at Nebraska!
  18. His Dad and brothers all played for Nebraska and Riley didn’t even recruit him? Mr. Ohio Football too. How could that happen? I might do an ex post facto leap into The Dredge.
