    JUCO WR Omar Manning

    I know it only happened because there was an existing profile on Huskerboard from his original recruitment....But, count me in the group of folks who like the idea of having a JUCO prospect's high school ratings shown along with the current JUCO ratings.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    I don't think the fact that they are football-talented kids should earn them an exception if they screw up. In our society, I think being talented at almost anything earns people more chances than they probably deserve. I guess I'm just saying that empathy is a good thing to keep in mind for a lot of folks. I also tend to think, if this becomes a teachable moment for him and he learns a valuable lesson in how to behave as an adult, it isn't something to condemn him for. I say that under the assumption that he will have consequences for his misdeeds, both in- and outside of the football program.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    This has been my thought, also. Especially when you take into consideration the fact that Mo may not have had a solid role model or person in his life to teach him the best ways to go about handling his emotions in a constructive manner. Having the mental tools, or a lack thereof, in the toolbox to keep those teenage emotions in check is a huge part of this, IMO.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    I don't know Maurice Washington in any way, other than what is in the media. Therefore, I have no idea if he is a person of high character or not. The quality of a person's character, or what a person is (good or bad), is obviously subjective. That being said, my personal belief is that a person is the sum of their actions in this life. Therefore, I don't think we can simply take one decision or action from a person's life and pass judgement on their entire life. This is probably stating the obvious, but I'm sure there are many people that could be classified as high character people, who have done stupid or hurtful things to others (both inside and outside of the law).

    I'm not saying, in any way, that we need new laws for this situation...although, that is what our reactionary society tends to do. I was simply saying that is the point of having laws, in general.

    I agree that the action(s) will persist (really any action will, hence the need for laws) if there are no consequences, from which lessons can be learned. I'm not sure that putting a felony on the record of every minor in possession of, and/or having sent a nude photo of, another minor is the best consequence, however. I suppose it would scare the crap out of the person potentially being charged, and maybe that's the desired affect in this case.

    Verduzco Named Broyles Award Nominee

    He sure did, in 2012. I wouldn't say that diminishes the value of the award, however. I mean, Adolf Hitler was TIME magazine's Person of the Year in 1938. My point is, sometimes they make poor decisions because of all the strain associated with the decision!

    Martinez Top-Rated B1G QB This Week

    Second best part of that graphic? Nebraska's defense didn't make any one player from OSU look like a world beater! So, I guess there's that.

    Akron Week Pressers

    I tried the Journal Star's stream, it is having the same issue...which leads me to believe it is an issue with the university's microphone/sound equipment. Just goes to show how broke the UNL athletic department truly is. haha Edit: They fixed in right after I posted this...You're welcome!

    ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    I remember listening to DB go into this a little more in depth, I believe it was last week. DB was talking about the former players being able to get behind Frost bc of the issues he's alluded to. DB said he thought the best way to get the majority of former players "on board" was for Frost to get everything out so that everyone could address it, and then move past it. So, I think Jay's comment is more about the fact that he is going to have to prepare himself for just that. I do agree, tho....it happened 20 flippin' years ago. Be an adult and let it go. If you need closure, fine. But, don't drag the guy down and fracture the program further than it already is.
