  1. http://skepdic.com/subjectivevalidation.html A pretty apt comparison, just replace "Van Praagh" and "Browne" with Sir Yacht and "psychic" with "inside source" and just ignore the spirit part I guess.
  2. Yeah, I say why not both? "We thought if anything it would help us ‘cus that's what we've been hearing on the news." The lady's own words. Toilet paper hoarding was never recommended by the administration, yet: “It might seem weird that people would hoard toilet paper because toilet paper is not going to prevent you from getting infected. I think what’s happening is this is going viral with images of people panic-buying toilet paper." Yes the media can make things worse. Human psychology is weird like that...
  3. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4783265/ Just to be contrarian, I'm seeing this floated around. Injecting blood "disinfected" by UV light has been used in the past. Reading the conclusion of that link there are obviously risks involved but more research is called for. Of course if this is what Trump meant he should have said so. But the media will also not point this alternative treatment out and will run with the Lysol angle so idiots will try it and injure themselves Darwinism and all that (also note the people who ingested fish tank cleaner aren't Trump supporters).
  4. They're transparent about it. Why do you think H1N1 deaths in the US were presented as a range between 8,868-18,306? This is not a new concept. CNN blows.
  5. CU ran for 380 yards, Chris Brown scored 6 TDs. Craig Bohl is the Husker football antichrist.
  6. So medical professionals tell Fred Hoiberg he is OK to do his job so he trusts them, like most people probably would. In so doing he is now labeled as grossly irresponsible with some people pondering whether he and/or Bill Moos should keep their jobs. ok.
  7. Povich looks solid so far. Gomes also really buckled down yesterday after a bad debut. Hope that's a sign of things to come!
  8. Former catchers as pitching coaches used to be the norm, and somehow everybody managed to not have ERAs in the 20s, so I don't think it matters that much. I think pitching this year was going to be a work in progress no matter who was coaching, losing both of the Waldrons, Eddins, Fisher, and to a lesser extent some of the other seniors and Chad Luensmann (who gave up 4 runs in his only appearance so far this year at UCF :/ ), there isn't a ton to work with. Throw in a bunch of errors and you get last night xP
  9. Hard to judge. A nearly ¾-hour, 11-run 1st inning changed the script on the mound. You don't have to get cute at that point nor use your top relievers. Free passes would have made the comeback easier for Baylor so you play it safe not getting too fancy trying to paint corners etc. There was some slick defense behind the pitchers, too, though. But it's only one (very good) game. I'll save my complaints for year 3 if necessary Edit: SL beat me to it :p
  10. I think USC is in a weird place with the coaching change rumors and subsequent retaining of Helton, with a lot of backlash that followed. But that's not to take away too much from Iowa.
  11. I now have diabetes but who cares? More Kool-Aid!
  12. Which is just about how it would have been with Miles anyway. Maybe marginally better this season, but we all saw what the ceiling was after 7 years (1 NIT win ). But no moral victories, this year is going to blow chunks record-wise. Oh well, scorched earth rebuilds are our thing as a university now.
  13. In the first year of the BCS (1998), A&M won the Big 12 and lost to Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl. But all in all I agree, they're a middle-class P5 program at best.
  14. Milt Tenopir called Frost the best QB he saw in terms of understanding and implementing T.O.'s offense on the field. Frost knows what to do, and the priorities now are fixing the OL depth chart (no offense to the starting 5 but they need to be pushed in practice by guys who could actually get PT), getting the right mix of WRs (one or two reliable big-bodied threats, cross your fingers that Betts and Manning qualify), and having 3+ running backs to rely on. None of those things were there in 2019, all look better on paper for 2020 (for what that's worth). Frost is limited only by his roster.
  15. Nice hard-fought win, Hawai'i played tough.
  16. I'm sure he has said the word "put" at least once in his life, don't worry.
  17. It's a throwaway year unfortunately, it will be interesting to see what a full recruiting cycle or two looks like. The scrambling roster overhaul (largely necessary) obviously didn't work out great.
  18. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2020/jaquez-yant-206666 Has some interest from Ole Miss, So Miss, UAB, and maybe Florida (well, it says HE'S interested in them anyway).
  19. He went for 102 receiving against them last year including a 28-yard TD. He was a home-run threat.
  20. What if Maurice Washington didn't go full idiot and get himself kicked off the team? Could have made a big difference today, and in a few other games down the stretch. Would have given Nebraska a deep receiving threat. Also note Kade Warner was injured most of the year.
  21. False, play-by-play is available here https://huskers.com/sports/football/stats/2019/iowa/boxscore/12380 Nebraska scored on back-to-back drives. Starting the drives at the 9 and 2 yard line in the 4th quarter were more informative to Nebraska's lack of success. Doubt McCaffrey would have been called to take any crazy risks, either. The next drive that started at the 20 was immediately boned by a false start by Austin Allen.
  22. Well that was pretty much the point that was made: the crowd was "groaning" when Martinez came back in. And Nebraska scored, so it's completely moot. No guarantees McCaffrey does much better later on given the field position given in the 4th quarter, kind of hard to justify putting your freshman in against a top 5 defense nationally inside your own ten yard line. If they didn't call a bogus blindside block penalty, it's quite possible McCaffrey was left in the game, but we'll never know. Martinez did screw up on that play, but leaving McCaffrey in if you're not playing to win is not that egregious an error IMO.
  23. Did reinserting Martinez prevent Nebraska from scoring their next drive?
