    Hypothetical Bo Question

    something is odd... I have not been on this board for several days and did not post the comment above that was attributed to me. How is that possible? Has this happened before to any of you?

    Hypothetical Bo Question

    I think Bo would still be hired in 2004 probably even more so

    Thank you Captain Kirk... that was compelling. (obvious sarcasm)

    Pope Francis

    I agree and am really thanking God for what I'm seeing so far from Pope Francis. It will be really interesting to see where things go from here. Christendom is essentially over, but remnants of it still remain and are held to (who knows why) in certain places, especially here in the midwest. Having such an influential leader really "walk the walk" is going to, if I have to guess, continue to separate that chasm between the progressing worldviews of modern culture and the church. I think that can simultaneously be a really good and a really bad thing. what makes you say (think) that Christendom is essentially over? Statistics regarding things like religious disaffiliation, rise of popularity in things like secular humanism, the shift away from the church being a central place in society and culture, etc. It's hard to put into a neat succinct little sentence. Understood. It is true that the numbers in the United States re: trends in church attendance are in the wrong direction.... but as an encouragement to a brother --- take heart --- the Gospel cannot be stopped. The truth of the Glory of God in Christ will prevail for He is victorious already. A central place in society and culture? Perhaps not as much as we would like. That said, Christ is King and all is well.

    Pope Francis

    You can quibble over terms if you want, but the point of what I'm getting at is this. In the Christian faith, grace is free, unmerited favor and mercy that isn't dependent on any condition or requirement, given by God. For Christians, aka those that receive the gift of grace, we become caretakers and also become sanctified, being refined to look more and more like Christ. As such, we are bound to extend grace - not our own grace, but God's - to others. Because God extends mercy and love and forgiveness to all people, so too are we called and equipped to do the same, by His strength and authority. Passing it along, so to speak. So yes, by a technical definition, grace is divinely given, but by a practical realization, it is extended by Christians as caretakers or messengers. Not something that we create or give of ourselves, but something that we have been given, and in turn, give. that was nicely stated. Well done as a representative of truth.

    RB Kendall Bussey Jr [Texas A&M - Signed LOI]

    looking at this young man suggests that he does not "need" another year in the weight room... he is ripped and very, very strong already.

    Just another Bo article

    Who played for and works for Bo so... if he has been an "entirely different person", that means this is not who he was before? he was a jerk and classless until january? i mean, we are all saying that he is now class and a great guy, so it stands to reason that if he is now entirely different than before, he was not those things before. seems kind of harsh. That might be reading a bit much into an inoccuous figure of speech... seems to me that Kellogg was simply saying that Bo has changed and clearly the context suggests that he means changed in a good way. That is, of course, very nice to hear. People do change and people can grow. Kellogg seems to be suggesting that such is the case for Bo as he sees it. Again, great to hear. We should be encouraged by this.

    Fyfe Measuring Up Just Fine

    If, as you say, Ryker can be a serviceable game manager that would not play outside his strengths... that would be great. So... if he can do that, then when called upon to contribute (just when or to what degree we do not yet know) NU will be OK. Thus, I see this as a good thing. Armstrong is there and will start... if he goes down, NU has Fife who few would have guessed earlier could contribute. Not only Fife but also Stanton. Further, the surprising abilities of Fife will drive Stanton harder as well. So everyone should be thrilled that Fife is in there legitimately competing.

    Sporing News All-Time Top 10 Huskers

    I agree. Ahman was very, very good. Fryar too. Still, I would place Green on that list over Irving.

    Saunders: you state... So, only your anecdotal evidence counts, and everyone else is wrong? Ok then. My response is that I never said anyone else had a wrong view at all. In fact, the only comments I even referenced are those whose anecdotal experience was like mine... and then only to say my experience was similar. To lash out like that is somewhat uncharacteristic of you. I never even intimated that other anecdotal evidence did not count. Not sure even where that came from. Anyway, I hope your day gets better.

    Just another Bo article

    That is what I hear too. You hear things like "Nebraska is a great program with great fans and a real class operation... so, why would they keep this guy Pelini around who is such a jerk?" Yeah well you also "heard" this, so..... those two posts convey the same thing and are consistent... the NU of the present with Bo as the "face of the program" is viewed negatively. Numbered among those that view NU this way are many who, in general and from a historic perspective, respect and like NU but are baffled that such a well respected program characterized by being classy is currently headed by a coach that is largely perceived as the opposite. The Vancouver Canucks in hockey are viewed much the same way by many --- a team that is historically respected and liked whose present coach (their current "face of the team") is viewed very negatively... so people wonder why that team, once respected and now viewed negatively by many because of their coach --- in fact retain their coach (or ever hired him in the first place).

    I concur that NU is still thought of well and that Bo is not. Of course Bo is polarizing... some love him. Many are very, very unimpressed. Few are neutral.
