    Our staff is miserable at clock management.

    It's pretty clear that Tommy just plain sucks.

    So Tommy Decided to Pass?

    Amen. We are rightly skewering one of the single worst calls in the history of Nebraska football, but that one call is only the crest of a tidal wave of stupid. Langsdorf is a freaking joke. Mike Riley's "Real will to run the football" is a load of horsesh#it. They have no will to run the football. They want to run some half-assed muddled mess of an offense with the pass defense to match. After living through the Callahan era, this is more depressing than words can describe. Oh, and I'll throw it out there. Why was DPE in the game? Was there some secret plan there? I saw one muffed punt and one screen, then to the bench.

    It doesn't matter. What the hell would you call a QB run or any kind of fancy play in that situation? Why would you even allow the potential for a f#ck up? Coaches can dance and dodge all they want; they give in to Jano, this game is in the books, and the only thing we get to whine about is Langsdorf bombing it downfield to nobody fifty times while our RBs hardly touch the ball on a windy, rainy day. The entire coaching staff has exposed themselves in five games. People are damn skittish for a damn good reason. Riley took a can't-lose situation (the game and his tenure) and managed to turn the entire fanbase into rabid monsters, squandered all goodwill he inherited, and with the Alex Lewis crap out there, he's now going to face a test keeping this team from completely imploding. This is not what we asked for when we booted Pelini.

    Riley needs to be fired!!!

    He can snicker all he likes. His ass deserved to be canned well before we tossed him. What I can't get over is we tossed him to hire a smarter, seasoned coach who ends up making some of the worst play calling decisions seasoned fans have ever seen in their lifetimes, the result of which is the worst season record (so far) the same fans have seen in their lifetimes. To borrow a phrase from Ron White: "You can't fix stupid." I'm a patient man, but losing games like this is on a level of unacceptable Pelini or Callhan never reached. In that sense the comparisons are unfair. Riley had better unf#ck himself in a hurry. This act will wear thin real, real soon.
  8. I think there's probably a grain of truth in there. Not that the earth needs to do anything. It doesn't notice or care. But many scientists believe we are in the midst of a sixth mass extinction caused by humans, which has resulted in the fastest rate of species extinction in millions of years. Left unabated, humans will almost certainly be a part of the extinction. Not to get too political, but this is one of the reasons I don't understand how Christianity got mixed up with the right wing (although on a positive note, I find Pope Francis very refreshing). I always thought growing up that it was a moral imperative to protect and cherish the environment. Why that isn't a cornerstone of modern Christianity is beyond me: it's maybe the moral imperative, especially when you consider the impact on the poor especially if we fail. If we fail, it won't matter if you are poor or rich, we will be exterminated. Speaking specifically about climate change, the poor will be the first to experience the pain of droughts, mass migrations, etc.

    Yeah but then what? Even if he somehow won Iowa and New Hampshire, that's because those states are almost entirely full of white liberals, who are the only people he has any ground with. He has like 5% support in the black community. Yeah and that's one of Nate Silver's bullet points on why he can't/won't win the nomination. Clearly he has some heavy lifting to do. The thing is, he does have some time to do it. We haven't even really gotten to the point where most Americans are paying attention to the election––except maybe to gawk at Trump––so if a major grassroots movement emerges (say at this march on Washington he has planned a few days after the first debate), he could move the needle. I don't know how much of the black vote dislikes Bernie Sanders and how much of it is people simply not knowing him from Adam. Hillary Clinton is like the Coca Cola of Democratic politicians. Not hard to say you favor her when she's the only person you've ever heard of in the race.

    I certainly don't hate the guy, and I'd be willing to consider his stances/arguments if he runs. Due diligence and all that. It's just extremely late in the game. I don't see a pathway to victory, and neither does anyone else. The narrative that the establishment democrats are trying to protect Hillary I think is missing the mark a bit. When they urge against him running, it has a lot to do with fundraising and time––or how little of it is left to mount a plausible bid for the White House. We turned the calendar to September today. That leaves a little less than six months to accomplish a hell of a lot.

    I think he's planning to run in 2020. He'll have to sober up by then, so I won't hold my breath.

    Undoubtedly, but John McCain was getting up there as well when he ran, and that after a bout with skin cancer. Nobody can tell the future when it comes to those things. The stresses of being president could give any of these people a heart attack pretty much at any time. I think if Bernie gets the nomination, his vice presidential selection had better be good. X, do you see this any differently than me in thinking that Bernie has better than 5% odds to actually get the nomination? I don't know if I can put a number on it. He's closing in in Iowa and New Hampshire and the debates haven't happened. If people get behind Bernie in a big enough way to win an election, it will likely mean a mass uprising. Hard to predict or account for all the variables in something like that. Mostly I think that if we want to see Bernie elected, all of who back him better get off our asses and do something about it.
