  1. Offseason's over, it's preview time!

      Huskers go 7-5, lose 2 ugly and 3 close ones due to injury.  Go to bowl, win bowl game.  Hot take preview over.

      My expectations are the same as they are every year; Natty or bust, with extreme alcoholism a very real possibility.

  2. The hardest part of watching games is consoling my 9 year old after all these losses. I'm pretty sure I'm trying to convince myself just as much as him that one day we'll be good again.

      Haha.  My 12 year old walked in last week during the game and said, "Hey dad, its closer than it usually is."The sad state of the program.  Then my wife listens to me vent about all the dumb stuff that happened during the game.  

       

      At least the HS team is 10-0 and playing really well.

      For me it’s hard to tell my son why he should be a Husker fan at the age of 7 when all of his friends are Hawkeye fans while Iowa has thumped on Nebraska for 4 straight years. My son hasn’t seen Nebraska beat Iowa yet which is sad and pathetic. 

  3. Looks like we'll be seeing the alternates soon...

      I was excited for them...now not so much...would pretty embarrassing if we're wearing them and the defense doesn't show up... 

    2. JJ Husker

      Hopefully they're more concerned with actually playing defense than wearing any certain uniform. Guess we'll find out.

      Minnesota will probably be 6-0

      Very excited for this.   Catch the Huskers Saturday Night, then watch Ameer and Nate play Sunday afternoon, then head home.   It'll be a great football weekend for me.

  5. The Iowa band is making stuff up again...

      Well, that is what they do. Like the time all the NU fans flipped off the kids in the Children's Hospital and kicked their 3 legged dogs. Psycho band chick strikes again.

      Just one more reason to despise Iowa.  Just play your damn trombone and shut the hell up.  <_<

      @JJ Husker Nah, we just moved into the new house. I'm getting a case of redneck beer and riding this thing out.

      I kind of thought he'd go The Athletic route. 

       

      @Xmas32 Completely agree, but I sadly can see it going that way. 

    3. Xmas32

      @Cdog923 

       

      Yeah, it makes too much sense for them not to put it behind a paywall.  I was super bummed to hear he was leaving when I learned about it on the last Podcast Ain't Played Nobody.  I was hoping for The Athletic since I was planning on subscribing to it.  I'll be anxiously looking forward to where ever he lands and hope he fires up a new podcast although it won't be as good as the product he and Godfrey had.

      Good news so far. I've never been to a home night game. May have to do N. Illnois.

  9. Guys... Guys... Guys....100 Days to kickoff!!!

      JJ Husker

      Can't wait. Picked up 2 season tickets for the first time ever since student tix. Probably only make it back to Lincoln for 3 or 4 games but that's 2 or 3 more than usual. Plus we got the CU game out here this year.

  10. Looks at weekend forecast...Ten straight days above 95º starting on Saturday.. oh great.

      Give me the cold, I'm not a fan of the heat.... A perfect day to me is 55 and cloudy, with a nice breeze.

  11. Mitch Sherman left ESPN for The Athletic. It's about time.

      @Enhance I thought the same thing. Decided to give it a year to see if it's worth it.

    3. Cdog923

      Cdog923

      @Enhance The draw would be the access to the plethora of talent that The Athletic has put together over the last couple of years. Sherman would be the main draw, but you'd also have access to Mandel, Feldman and Auerbach for CFB, among others for other sports. 

       

      That said, I am cheap, so I haven't subscribed yet.

  12. I'm curious what the OWH readership numbers are now that they paywall so much content. Essentially every article that pops up on twitter is SUBSCRIBER PLUS, and I'm essentially to the point of unfollowing them.

      Is the subscriber Plus cheaper than the paper subscription?  Because, you know, paper and delivery costs don't exist

    3. Enhance

      Enhance

      @huKSer Yes - I think the going rate for unlimited access to all their content online is like $10/month.

       

      @Saunders I think I'm picking up what you were getting at now. I think The Athletic and the OWH are incomparable from a business standpoint. The Athletic is purely an online experience and, although they try to place people in local markets, they're a national brand. The OWH still delivers newspapers to tons of people still and have a lot fixed costs associated with that including print, production, delivery, management, carriers, etc.

       

      I'm sure they also have a lot of advertisers that want to get in front of their audience. So, it's just different business models. But, like I said, their online subscriber program gets rid of ads almost entirely.

    4. Saunders

      Saunders

      Hmm, I swear I saw ads when I did the trial last year, and I was shocked. Maybe they fixed it. Still, the price is quite high for what it is.

      Difference between Nebraska/Clemson and Bama is that Saban is a scum bag. I'd be fine with a good guy like Dabo being dominant.

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      Well sure, Dabo is better than Saban but TO was a pretty good guy and most everyone other than Husker fans had their fill of Nebraska by the late 90's early 2000's. So, not being a scumbag helps but anyone on a long dominate run is susceptible. Patriots and Belichek are another good example. I just understand it better now whereas I didn't at all when people first started hating on us.

    4. ZRod

      ZRod

      Yeah, people want to see competition if it's not their team on top. It's definitely more interesting to see fresh blood in the title game.

  15. Hype train begins.  Huskers at #19 in Athlon Way-too-early poll.

      Oh sweet baby Jesus tapdancing on a cracker, that song was at EVERY SINGLE OFF-CAMPUS PARTY in the late 90s. Even the people hosting parties got tired of the song and only played it out of some misguided sense of obligation. 

       

      Plus, it's really awkward to be on a road trip with the kids and wife somewhere, hear that song start up on a 90s station, and then remember some of the rather questionable things you did as a youth and who you did them with.

      My mom pre-ordered it for my birthday (yes I'm a 35-year-old man who just said that), but I don't know if she plans on waiting until December to give it to me, because she'd be wrong.
