    Look back at Suh and the erroneous Hypesman

    That's all well and good, but I don't understand how one player playing against one team's defense is valid as a direct comparison to a different player playing against a different team's defense. Additionally in this specific example when Biakabutuka said he'd never seen holes to run through that big in his 6 years of playing football and that anybody playing football could have run for all those yards. Regardless, Tommie was a much better player/asset to his team than George was. He just wasn't nearly as tangibly productive.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse

    Loved it. Full of good humor, good lessons for kids and reminders for adults, and the art direction was absolutely fantastic and a visual feast.

    Bunch transferring

    I thought it was interesting how thus far there was no criticism of Bunch, and thought I could make fun of it and also maybe prevent some further legitimate criticism by sarcastically referencing it early and making anyone that comes after think twice about actually holding thoughts like those.

    Bunch transferring

    Really disappointing. Just goes to show the character of some kids these days not being interested in anything other than themselves and their own success. Whatever happened to sacrifice, hard work, and commitment to something bigger than you? /sarcasm

    Huskers in 2019....

    Personally I don't think of myself as very cynical. I'm actually quite excited about the future and am beyond happy that we finally brought Scott home (about 7 years late imo). But I don't dwell on hypotheticals. I don't really even have an opinion on whether or not we'll be good/better next year - I didn't much this year either, though I obviously thought we'd do better than we did. All I'm saying is that across different coaching staffs and administrations our program has been defined by a very consistent and transcendent snakebit-ness that so far has reared it's head in Frost's first season as well. It might continue forever, or maybe we've seen the last of it. But it's not silly for people to look at the last almost two decades and then go, "Yeah I'll wait until I see it"

    Flukes have defined our program for 17 years now.

    Xmas Traditions

    My Christmas Eve/Day tradition is going to the bar. My family does Christmas early (which I usually get to make it too), so by the time the actual day(s) comes around I'm usually alone and without anything to do. Last year it started snowing on Christmas Eve and I went down into the city to make this short film, though:

    B10: East vs West Disparity?

    Look at the entire history of the Big 12. The original dominance of the north was an anomaly/flash in the pan. It quickly corrected itself. Another result is also that all the teams in the West lose almost every game to the top 3 teams in the East. This math might be off by 1-2 on either end but over the last 5 years the entire West is something close to 9-36 vs OSU/Mich/PSU

    I don't think any of that has anything to do with... anything related to the Heisman. Runningbacks and quarterbacks don't throw/run against each other. They play against the other team's defense.

    The Angry Violent Right

    Please mods/admins, get rid of the eyeroll reaction. Nobody seems to know how to not obsess over them. Cue eyeroll reactions.

    First-Year Coaching Grades

    You have a very weird perception of 'chiding'. Two more wins because our quarterback didn't get hurt wouldn't change a coaching grade, would it? Edit: For the record if it was a percentage grade it would improve. Just not enough to change letter grades. I don't know that a non-winning season would or should ever deserve a B grade or better.

    First-Year Coaching Grades

    Personally I'd probably grade a 6-6 season as a C+ (all other things remaining the same), which is also what I graded our 4-8 season.

    Martinez for Heisman

    I thought Scott had little to no input/influence on Mariota until late in his career but I was somewhat mistaken. Frost was receivers coach Marcus' freshman year, then OC/quarterbacks coach his sophomore/junior years. Mariota took a big jump between those years so I rescind my statement.
