  1. Yes, IF you stop their ground and pound, beating them would be fairly easy. IF... (You bolded the wrong word. The key word in the statement is IF). That's the thing with Wisconsin, you know how they're going to beat you but they have a really good record of doing it anyway... If you can stop that, you'll beat them. That doesn't mean it's easy, but it is simple.
  2. I really hate to see these types of things. Hope he heals and rehabs well and still gets a shot to fulfill his dreams.
  3. That's pretty spot on. I think Riley is a great guy, and I want him to succeed, but I just don't see him ever being super successful at NU. Don't believe everything you think, or type. Especially this load of BS.
  4. From my uneducated point of view, it's more difficult to discuss the Offensive Line vs the skill positions because it's a unit, rather than an individual. Ideally, the line unit is greater than the sum of its parts but that is a difficult concept to predict when looking at the parts. The Offensive Line seems to have a lot of intangibles involved that only become visible when the unit is running full speed under the stress of game conditions. I couldn't begin to predict the performance of a unit like that, but feel like I can at least make a sort of educated guess on the performance of skill
  5. I've been meaning to start this thread on "Cord Cutting Husker Fans". We dropped cable in January of this year and the ONLY thing I miss, is live sports and the upcoming Husker football season has me considering my options. I'm not very techy, and would appreciate advice from those who are good at this game. Thanks in advance!!!
  6. We almost had a Heisman winner from the defensive side of the ball in Suh. We know how to play that game and win it this time...
  7. That's really well stated Sgt Red.
  8. I was once an expert on parenting, with brilliant clarity on all topics... ...and then I had children. I seem to know very little about parenting now that I'm experiencing it.
  9. bullsh#t. To all of this. Says someone who isn't a parent. I've never had a girlfriend. I guess I could understand dragging a girl down 3 flights of stairs by the hair. Especially if it was done by a star football player. Boys will be boys. I'm not Victor, but I think he was trying to make a comment from a parents point of view. Of course, you have to chime in with your opinion, and slamming Victor's opinion. I know you are entitled to your thoughts, but I just think it's lame when someone who has no idea what it's like to be a parent to give advice on how to be a parent. I'm not defendi
  10. Maybe this is a good thing for the team. Sounds like we will still benefit from his knowledge and wisdom but have a younger, likely more energetic coach on the field.
  11. QB 1, whichever Husker fills this role, I expect/hope there will be a big improvement in QB play this year.
  12. Besides screwing the kid over... It's also a terrible look to recruits. You only do this if it's your last option and Patrick is begging the coaches. The other side of that coin is that you may be saying to our current older players, "sorry guys, the future is more important than the present but thanks for everything". While unlikely, playing in the CCG is still possible and a pretty good bowl game. Let's take care of the bird in the hand rather than putting all of our chips down on what might be lurking in the bush.
  13. Think AJ Bush is regretting his decision to leave?
  14. And how do they determine if he's symptomatic? Um, they ask him... There is an objective component and a subjective component to the process. I'm certain that they've done the best they can to design a process that eliminates subjectivity but it's not possible to eliminate it completely. Dx in brain situations is nuanced, not black and white.
  15. As I posted in your status update, there's no way you can do that as a coach. If TA can play he starts. If he can't start he doesn't play. Why? Because if he can't start it means he can't play. There's no gray area in concussions. Either you are cleared or you aren't. I understand if he's cleared he can play. But, if he is just skating past the line to play they may consider letting him sit unless actually needed to get the win. Why risk longer term injury against Minnesota if we don't have to? Maybe he's cleared, but he isn't playing well enough to start yet from some lingering effects. It

  17. If they hadn't set a certain precedent with Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson, this might be a decent point. I thought the NFL should stay out of those situations also. We have a legal system for legal things. Seems a bit of an overreach for the NFL to be investigating and punishing their employees beyond the legal system when the crimes do not affect their jobs directly. I do understand the fan reaction/PR/marketing dilemma of these situations though so I'm not sure there is an easy answer.
  18. Not sure why the NFL is responsible for his personal life.
  19. "Recovery" is subjective. Are there objective tests for "recovery"? I can't think of any. It's sort of an amorphous term, based largely, IMO, on emotional/mental factors. Cryotherapy, to reduce blood flow via vasoconstriction, for a defined injury, is a more measurable and objective entity. Based on a very brief look, WBC only cools the skin, rather than the deeper tissues (muscles, tendon, ligament, etc.) which would be the more significant target of cryotherapy in its traditional form, ie ice packs applied to specific areas.
  20. Icing an injury is different than icing for recovery. I don't think they have a great deal to do with each other...
  21. 2-3 minutes in cold air, a very poor conductor, is not likely having a significant effect on any tissues deeper than skin, and thus the CNS. Cryotherapy in training, I would agree, is possibly reducing long term adaptation, which is increasingly believed to be reliant upon inflammatory markers. IOW, suppressing inflammation reduces the training effect of the exercise. However, in season, the goal is not to adapt to exercise, but to "feel better" and be ready to play again ASAP. "Slowing recovery" is just as unlikely as "speeding recovery" in a tissue sense (both unlikely IMO thou
  22. "No evidence to support" does not mean that it isn't useful for individuals. If the kid feels like it helps, it probably does, maybe only because of that belief.
  23. All sorts of NCAA sports do training trips. I spent a couple of weeks in Hawaii that way. It didn't suck.
