  1. Kids are still playing basketball at the park, so the city had to physically take down the hoop, rim and all. desperate times call for desperate measures I guess

      Want to know the funny thing?  I used to hear about how "kids these days never get out of the house and play games like basketball at the park.....all they do is sit at home and play video games."  Ummm.....I guess that isn't necessarily true.

      @JJ Husker agreed. That spring breaker story making the rounds the last day or two was a real trigger moment for me.

      There was also full on cookout at my neighborhood park with like 15-20 people a few days ago, and there were families on the playground equipment 3-4 days ago as well. City came and put signs up yesterday and even some fencing around the playground.

      @BigRedBuster I was talking about this exact situation to someone yesterday. In Dallas, the parks and trails have become way too crowded for distancing purposes. It's like now that people are forced to stay home, they want to get outside. I don't get it at all; when they're not forced to stay home they're more than happy to be inside and on their phones, watch tv, play videogames, etc. Some psychological warfare going on.

  2. Social distancing has officially been extended to April 30. Happy happy joy joy! Another month of sitting at home.

      We are not "officially" done for the year yet but we are getting close.

      @The Dude My favorite show as a kid.

  3. Now it's becoming difficult to find eggs...God I wish they would just open the restaurants again!

      Can you not order takeout in your area?

      I have 10 chickens, make that 9, the doberman got 1 this morning.  I have been giving eggs to the neighbors because we have so many currently.  The neighbor behind us has like 40 and gives us eggs to give away as well.  I have told him we are good and so are the other neighbors.

  4. finally found a loaf of bread after looking for several days...have never been so happy just to have a pb&j sandwich

      I stopped at the store earlier, TP was still empty (or emptied yet again), meat and frozen veggies were sparse but not empty. Fresh produce looked normal, although it was being stocked at the time I was there.

      The Bay Area has been ravaged. The only thing you can easily find is fruits and vegetables. Everything else is bare.

    4. commando


      fruits and veggies wouldn't be all bad.   can do quite well with just those for awhile.

  5. MLB season pushed back until May, at the earliest.

  6. It's hilarious seeing all those coaches turn down the sCUm head coaching position. It would be great if they ended up with Bielema.

      I'm really surprised Bienemy didn't take it.

    3. ColoradoHusk


      Bienemy is poised to get a NFL head coaching job soon, no need to go to CU.

    4. Xmas32


      Yeah taking the CU job would've been a terrible move for Bienemy both monetarily and from a career perspective.

  7. The Houston Astros' press conference was horrendous; basically a PR lesson in what not to do. The owner literally got caught lying. Watch the clip.

      Stealing signs is not illegal and is part of game. Using technology to do so is very much against the MLB use of technology rule. 

    3. MLB 51

      MLB 51

      Also, it's another one of those unwritten rules.

    4. krc1995


      Unwritten rules have an unwritten punishment. That’s why I love baseball 

  8. Trevor Lawrence is a f#&%ing beast.

  9. great class, considering we've only had 9 wins over the past 2 seasons

  10. Does Martinez really give us a better chance of winning than playing McCaffrey?

    1. Savage Husker

      Savage Husker

      No. He is a gift to other teams and it’s indefensible how comfortable Frost is with rolling him out there when more effective options are available 

    2. Decoy73


      The coaches thought so. We just have to trust their judgment on that. I would have liked to see more McCaffery in the fourth quarter though. His limited reps this season generally have been impressive. Next year things will be different for the better, I have a feeling. 

  11. If you're only going to see 1 movie this year, make sure it's The Irishman. I saw it on Tuesday; another Scorsese classic.

    1. teachercd


      Better than Kindergarten Cop?

    2. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      Thanks for the heads up. Want to see it but didn't realize it was out yet.

    3. krc1995


      It’s 3 hours and 30 minutes long. I mean it sounds good , but it’s 3 hours and 30 minutes long. 

  12. If that's the best we can expect from Martinez, we should use Vedral/McCaffrey moving forward.

    1. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      I guess the problem is THAT is not the best we can expect from 2AM. We saw much better last season and we know his ceiling is much higher than he has exhibited this year. Not sure what the issues are but the staff needs to figure it out and stop the "stick with him" at all costs approach. That might go for some other coaches as well.

  13. Does anyone understand why The Irishman isn't getting a wide release, but only relegated to small theaters?

    1. teachercd


      Just a guess, but sometimes they do that to have it out at a certain point/time so that it can be considered for the Oscars.

    2. ZRod


      Yup. It's a Netflix movie, but it needs to be in some theaters to get consideration by the academy.

    3. NM11046


      There's a podcast on Fresh Air with the stepson of Chuckie O'Brien that's worth listening to.  I had no idea the story or the relatives involved.  https://www.npr.org/2019/10/01/766010613/in-hoffa-s-shadow-uncovers-an-author-s-family-ties-to-a-mafia-mystery


      And I think because it was produced by Netflix there is a small theatre release now, then it goes live on streaming at the end of Nov.


  14. At least we aren't Tennessee. That program is in an absolute freefall. I doubt Pruitt will be coaching much longer. 

  15. Tennessee...what a dumpster fire

    1. Frostberg


      Tennessee needs some of that smooth whiskey.

  16. Another primetime blowout...what an absolute embarrassment...The gap in talent is so wide, it's laughable. 

    1. Danny Bateman

      Danny Bateman

      I mean, you didn't understand that going in?

  17. My goodness, Tennessee is awful. just 3 points scored

  18. Illinois game on BTN

    1. Redux


      Darn, really enjoyed FOX Business Channel....

  19. Antonio? Antonio who? :dunno :D

  20. offense looked awful...o-line got dominated...hopefully next week is better

  21. Only 1 day left...so close

  22. watching games from the 95 season...I need Husker football...the wait :wacko:

    1. knapplc


      I'm watching old games, too. Just finished 1996 NU at KSU. Shortly after the ASU debacle, and a young Scott Frost learning to guide the machine.


      Can't wait. It's only two weeks to gameday!

  23. Has anyone tried Sling? Is it reliable? I need a way to get beIN Sports since Comcast dropped it and saw Sling offered it.

      You won't be able to watch Big 10 games on FS1 with Sling. We had it last season and since Fox bought rights back from ESPN or something and that the fees need to be paid to Fox. But Sling already paid the fees to ESPN so they would blackout all Big 10 games on FS1 but we still could watch Big 12 and Pac 12 games. They also don't have BTN. We went to Hulu Live and now we have BTN for a similar but higher price to Sling.

    3. Redux


      Yeah I used Hulu Live last year too.  Definitely suggest YTTV instead of paying for Sling Blue AND Hulu Live

      Thank you for all the replies.  @JJ Husker  beIN Sports shows La Liga games (soccer). I figured most people here wouldn't know the channel; that's why I just asked about best streaming options for the least amount of money.

  24. Does anybody have a Wi-Fi Internet radio? I am looking to buy one to pick up stations outside of the Bay Area, but there are so many choices.

      Yeah man use your phone on WiFi and get a Bluetooth speaker. Works excellent 

    3. Street Novelist

      I have a limited data plan on my smartphone; that's why. I need a radio that I can play for hours on end.

    4. Danny Bateman

      Danny Bateman

      Oh, if that's the case and they make radios that can pick up digital streams data-free you could go that route.


      Unless you're just needing this around the house. Then you could just disconnect your phone from data and stream via WiFi or pick them up on a computer instead. Either would be able to connect to a speaker.
