    Sort of the same style as that psychic from years ago (Jeanne Dixon?) that would make ~100 predictions at the start of the year about celebrities, then when one or two of them would come true, crow about how great she was.

    To the devoted believer, the psychic can do no wrong. If there was an error, it wasn't the psychic's fault. What may appear to be an error may not really be an error. It's possible the psychic got his or her wires crossed and mistook one spirit for another. And so on. And, as Van Praagh and Browne have often said, they're not gods and not infallible. When you're validated you're right and when you're wrong you're right. For the alleged psychic it is always a win-win with your devoted followers.

    A pretty apt comparison, just replace "Van Praagh" and "Browne" with Sir Yacht and "psychic" with "inside source" :lol: and just ignore the spirit part I guess.

    You’re blaming the media for people reacting to Trump saying injecting disinfectant is something we should look into. Just listen to yourself. This is asinine.

     

    He also referred to it as “cleaning.” He wasn’t talking about blood nor does it really matter if he was (he wasn’t).  If it’s worth researching the scientists will figure that out. Trump should shut the f#&% up about things he knows nothing about, stop floating moronic ideas that pop into his head, and let the scientists do the research. Then when they give him information that should be shared he can do that. What he’s doing is imbecilic and you should not be defending it. 

     

    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...

    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 :dumdum Darwinism and all that (also note the people who ingested fish tank cleaner aren't Trump supporters).

    So it's not a fact when NY state comes out and says they are counting 3700 deaths in the total that were never tested?  That's as factual as you can get.  I always knew CNN had a loyal fan base... I just never met one of them.  Check that off the list.   

    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. 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

    Agreed. The only “Debbie Downer” part would be how many runs our starter and relief pitching did give up down the stretch. I’ve already voiced my concerns on this going into the season.

    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 :o

     

    Edit: SL beat me to it :p

    This is a team with no returning starters with zero chemistry and familiarity with each other before the start of the year.

    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 :corndance).

     

    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.

    They've been solid for a while though.....but never great.  Have they ever made a BCS bowl?

     

    Edit: Looked it up, only looked back 30 or 40 years, but not 1 BCS bowl....they did go undefeated in 94' with 1 tie, but didnt go to a bowl.  Not sure how that happens?

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    Yes he went three and out the next possession. He then handed the ball off all the way down the field and hit a dude wide open. 

    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.

    No but it prevented Nebraska from winning the game because he did nothing else the rest of the game and ran out bounds with roughly 40 seconds left giving the other team time that they would not have otherwise

    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.
