  1. Knappic did you see this?? The Tour de France won’t be the same without him. I always figured Phil (Ligget) would go first. So incredibly sad:(

      We really should be discussing this on the football board and how Ligget's passing will impact the Nebraska football team.

      I’m glad you agree VectorVictor except it was Paul Sherwin who passed away not Phil Ligget:D

  2. I don’t know if this has already been posted but-Congratulations to Rex & Danielle Burkhead on the birth of their son! https://boston.cbslocal.com/2018/11/20/rex-burkhead-had-a-great-excuse-for-being-late-to-patriots-practice/

  3. As we close this football season I just want to thank Mavric and the rest of the HB Crew who have kept this board running smoothly. Thanks All! 

  4.  How fitting that we won this game by field goals only on a day when we honored Sam! :bigredn:

      Dilly Dilly

      And Mike Sadler.  I just said to my husband that it was fitting that the day they honor kickers from both sides, the only points scored were from the kickers.

    2. Thanks_Tom RR

      Thanks_Tom RR

      Thanks for pointing that out, @ladyhawke. It is a special moment to reflect on.

      And Mike Sadler too. I forgot he played for MSU. (Thanks Dilly Dilly)

       

  5. YEAH BABY!  HUSKERS FOR THE WIN!!!:bigredn:

  6. It’s a thing of beauty to watch Scott Frost teach on the sidelines. He was talking with Martinez after the last 3 and out and you can tell he was teaching. 

    It was so refreshing vs watching the previous coaches who screamed at players or simply did nothing. GBR!:bigredn:

  7. At least we were competitive. GBR:bigredn:

  8. I’m sure the answer to this question is buried somewhere in the 15 page Gebbia thread but I’m going anyway: Did anyone else hear that Gebbia didn’t want to leave Nebraska but his Dad wanted him to leave. This is sad-nothing like helicopter parents.

      It's a mixture of that and coaches hounding him once Adrian was named starter. Coaches are just as concerned with tracking guys they lost in the recruiting trail for reasons like this. I am sure coaches called him and his dad and explained why transferring now was better. 

  9. Can you image what that game would’ve been like if MR & Co. we’re still coaching? 

    It would've been a butt stomping of the first order!!!

      Could I imagine if MR was still our coach?  No, my brain has a self defense mechanism

  10. Hey could someone who is at the game describe the Tunnel Walk. Did they play Sirius?  Scott looked really pumped 

    1. ladyhawke

      ladyhawke

      They didn’t show all of it on tv just when Scott and the team came out on the field. 

    2. Vizsla1

      They started Sirius- then music stopped and broke into a song I have no clue about...scratching my head and asked some younger kids what it was and they did not recognize it either...

      @Vizsla1  Nobody near me recognized the song, either. But the sound quality on it wasn't great, and people were clapping and making noise.

      Of course. I mentioned this in the thread about Lee's retirement.

      Thanks, we're pretty excited for it. Congrats to going 38 years strong, that's pretty remarkable.

      When its all said and done, I think my marriage will be my greatest achievement.  But life would be meaningless without the struggle. It goes by fast!

      Thanks all!  We’ve had our struggles too but by the grace of Christ we press on!

      Sentence the adult(s) to the max with full restitution. Same with the juveniles. In any case, Scott Frost should have a say and make recommendations to the judge.

      So how do they get a fair trial here in Nebraska? :)

  12. Hey Comfortably Numb, we were just re-routed off of I-76 on our way to Denver. Brush got hit by two tornadoes.  They re-routed us on the outskirts of Brush. Grass flattened and huge trees pulled out of the ground. What s mess!  I hope you and your family are out of harms way. 

    1. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      We are fine but we did get golfball size hail with damage to the roof, window screens and trees. You be careful out there by Brush. They always get hammered in that area.

      Glad to hear you guys are ok. If we had been there an hour earlier we wpuld’ve been caught on it.

      Army's Michie Stadium at #13??   So I guess it's true.  Size doesn't matter.  

       

      lol :D

      1) I would like to know what the criteria was if it wasn't "Oh, that's cool"

      2) The pictures should enhance the description - "The view from the stadium shows -- " and it is a night picture or "The outside facade of brick --" and you get a crowd shot.  I think that they liked the renovation retained the original facade, but they did not show this

       

  13. Knappic-Disaster on the Tour de France today!  Be sure and watch it!

      It was an amazing race today.  Riding at 30mph over those granite cobblestones-brutal.  Knappic-I also read a UK publication called The Guardian.  They give a moment by moment breakdown of each stage.

      Those cobblestones are no joke. Worst part about my trips to France. My feet still wince at the thought of them.

       

      Too bad for Richie Porte. They shouldn't be riding on those surfaces at all, and now he's out due to those stupid cobbles.

       

      Also, I can commiserate with Froome about this. Been there!

       

       

    4. ladyhawke

      ladyhawke

      Knappic-I agree with you about the cobbles. I was surprised that Bob Roll was so adamant about leaving them in while Christian V agreed with us.   I felt really sorry for TeJay Van Garderan.  Bright side is that Greg V is still in yellow for BMC and I was really happy for John Degankolb. Rest day tomorrow!

      (Have you rode the tour route in France? A friend of mine did that a few years ago. Very cool.)

  14. Just saw Ant Man and The Wasp. Loved it! Nice little fun break from reality. But! Make sure you stay until after the credits for what comes next!  

  15. Husker quarterbacks: Do you think Coach Frost will allow his quarterback to ‘play through the mistakes’ or will he pull them? (I heard this question on 1620 The Zobe this afternoon and thought it was interesting.  I think that as a former q.v. himself, Scott can tell whether a qb is having a ‘bad hair day’ and needs to sit out or the qb is just not getting it and needs to sit down. What do you guys think?

      How often do you ever see a QB pulled for performance reasons, and how likely is that team to succeed when done? Coaches more or less allow QBs to struggle a bit. The ones that get yank happy rarely succeed.

    3. Husker John

      Husker John

      My understanding is SF does not want his players to be afraid to make a play, or to fear failure. I think that's going to be a dynamic positive teaching environment for all our players.

    4. ladyhawke

      ladyhawke

      I think that will happen as well, Husker John.  Scott wants to keep his players encouraged and learning how to improve their craft at the same time. 

      However, why wouldn’t a coach pull a qb that is obviously not getting the job done for that particular gam brophog?  There should be no shame in pulling the guy, putting another qb in who also needs to learn and who perhaps IS having a better day.  I’ve seen coaches do that before. Isn’t that what being a team is all about?  

       

  16. Several years ago we used to have a counter on HB that told us how many days until the first football game of the Husker season. Is that still a possibility?

      Just curious-how many on HB are in the military or have served our country in the past?

  18. I’m watching The Pride of the Yankees.  Wow. Lou Gehrig was an amazing baseball player. This is probably my favorite sports movie.
