    Holy s***! I hope all is okay! I’ve never heard of anyone needing to push an online video streaming service to live...but I guess that’s just the world we live in anymore.

    No...just no. Northwestern plays the same teams in the B1G we do, save for one: they got Rutgers, we got tOSU. Also, don’t forget Northwestern plays at Notre Dame in the next week or two. As in #4 Notre Dame.

    Um...the game is already over.

    Yup. Though NW has some really good 4th down conversions on the road. And honestly, NW is now 4-1 and leading the B1G West. Say what you will, but they’re winning.
  5. Bitter like a good drinking buddy who is always down for a good, long-term joke.
  6. Frankly, all of the players look like they'd be painful to sleep on, especially in full gear. Not exactly sure why we're advocating Minnesota to sleep on our players, but if it gives them a bad back in the morning and helps us get a win...then yay? FauxPelini is the only predictor in this image that has their priorities correct. $5 Bits of Broken Chair forever.
  7. I'm down with this...as long as my free subscription holds out in our new vehicle.
  8. Are we implying our pass defense is suspect here, or are we implying the zebras royally screwed us? Mind you, both answers are right, just curious which one you were going for.

    LET'S! GET! HYPOTHETICAL! GAME 7

    None of them hired Mike Riley...so unfortunately they're smarter than us.

    LET'S! GET! HYPOTHETICAL! GAME 7

    Um...so, one of the criteria for a 5-7 team being picked is graduation rates and academic compliance...and I thought I had read somewhere that this went down a bit while Riley was f*****g things up here. So that just puts us that much lower on the list, should we even get to 5-7.
  11. Let's be honest--Minnesota's running game isn't *THAT* bad. But it's nowhere close to being 178 good against Ohio State unless Ohio State decides to sell out in defending the pass...which is exactly what happened last week. But don't worry, our patented ¡Olé!(tm) 3-4 defense specializes in making moribund running games look spectacular. So don't be shocked if you clock north of 200 yards rushing--It's Nebraska Nice.
  12. Go donate this week to Team Jack and the UoM Masonic Children's Hospital in support of the $5BoBC Trophy:

    Goal is $10k, they're halfway there.

    How the $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy Affects Nebraska and Minnesota

    This, right here. Also, considering Frost has already mentioned Pelini in a positive light, it's just a matter of time. Plus, the best trophy games are the ones that happen organically, and not the ones contrived by the B1G front offices. That's exactly why there's a passion for this trophy and why people give a s***--it's a construct of the people, by the people, and for the people who watch and root for these teams.

    What if Nebraska has TWO games canceled this year?

    Actually, the math isn't as bad as it looks on the surface (though it's not good, either): $306 million averaged over 40 years is only $7.65m/year. Assuming 25% of the student body uses the dorms (read: 1,000 students for the Iowa and Texass alum among us) Assuming students pay $700/mo. for room/board Assuming the dorms are in use for nine months out of the year (August through May) You're looking at $6.3m/year just from room use alone. Now, they shouldn't have had that high of a break-even point to begin with, and 40 years is two lifetimes anymore in residency building at Universities and colleges. It honestly looks like someone was aiming a bit too high when they conceived these plans, and no one wanted to remind BCU that they're in a Republican state (read: little to no state funding/assistance) and that the contemporary importance of Black Colleges is fading (see the points @mrandyk already covered). Still, sad to see such a historic institution having these issues. Wonder if there are initiatives to preserve the unique history of these institutions somewhere?
