  1. The Democratic party has a bit of a communist problem, they agree and like a number of policies they implemented. The issue is that a fair number of people that live in this country had a number of their family members killed by communists, me included, although a ways back in my families history. So it ends up being inconsiderate and insensitive to those who have suffered because in their eyes Obama or Sanders Complimenting Castro is one in the same as those two idiots complimenting Hitler for anyone of his policy successes. Our modern politicians are increasingly history deaf, and it's becoming very alarming.
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1iQUF1gQmI Found a good video on american gun culture that was done by a pretty good historian who ive been watching more of recently. I'm interested to see what people think of it.
  3. I think"long time worst official in the big ten names coach who road his butt hardest" is a more fitting title here.
  4. Completely true. It wasn't perfect, however it seems to have been more 'Measured' for lack of a better term. I feel in the modern era decisions are made more hastily with fewer concrete facts and even fewer considerations for the consequences. It's better known than you would think. By contrast however, even if they had stayed true to their agreements with the Arab revolt, (the one where the Arabs get most of the middle east) it almost certainly would have devolved into civil war anyway given the vast number of ethnic groups and minor religious sects that inhabit the region. So the alternative may not have been much better. People also forget that Iran bordered another country at that time, the Soviet Union, who had its influences in the country as well, and helped occupy Iran during WW II. To put it plainly the country is geopolitically strategic and oil rich, essentially guaranteeing foreign interference. The west did its part to keep it from falling to the commies but as we saw later on in history that it all came with a price.
  5. Frankly, the last four presidents have all been between bad too outright disasters in foreign policy. I guess perhaps we were a bit more thoughtful when had the evil empire in siberia to consider before we did things.
  6. ...... oh god stop!!!!
  7. I'm currently letting Warthunder slowly devour whats left of my soul before bed.
  8. I'm all for it. If i recall correctly it is the lair of the sock, and his fabled wisdom.
  9. Man, i drank a bunch of vodka, and suddenly this thread makes sense
  10. in light of recent staff movement, this thread title has not aged well.
  11. Gotta be happy for the Joe Burrow. Still frustrating that we never seemed offer more than passing interest in the kid however.
  12. I like your post it gives good insight into where your opinion derives from and give some numbers to make your point. However There are some Really critical flaws in the logic of this post. You are comparing (in the 2014 team) a group who Beck had overseen for 4 years at that point, all kids he helped recruit and (develop?) and enjoyed a stable QB position in Tommy A. And Failure was the Result, they only beat two winning teams that year (Iowa and Rutgers), played two other winning teams close, and got blown out by the rest. His patented no huddle, 3 and out offense was on full display that season against any decent team. A very average Iowa team took them to OT were they barely scrapped out a W. You then want to use those numbers and compare that to the SF UNL Cornhuskers who were using a roster still heavily dependent on talent recruited by the last regime with a revolving door of QB's thanks to injuries and inexperience and claim he isn't even doing as good as Beck? You want to pass judgement, do it when SF hits year 4, the comparison will be an honest and reasonable, but more importantly, one that will hold water. We could get into a debate about play calling, and the offensive philosophy behind both teams. But again its hard to pass judgement on scott who is only in year two. But if what i have read is true, we haven't really seen much yet, much of this offense is placeholder at the moment till the kids they recruited develop some more. Tim Beck on the other hand we have a great recent history which only reaffirmed the many grievances our fans had about him as we have now watched him crash and burn a natty title caliber offense at TOSU, only team to get shut out in the play off lol. Then turn around as if nothing bad happened and crash and burn a Big 12 title calibre (if not more) offense at Texas. This dude got demoted and booted minus the pink slip at TOSU (having connections sure is nice eh?), and has now gotten demoted again at Texas. The only thing saving him at this point is his considerable recruiting acumen, That's one firing, a demotion/quasi we still friends but you can't work here bro firing, and then a demotion over incompetence in all with in a 5 year span. Minus Tim Beck i enjoyed the Pelini era, Bo came close, he needed to make some changes on D, but he really needed to get rid of Beck and go find someone a bit more qualified to implement his vision of what he wanted on offense.
  13. Lol, no. Cool opinion, but no. The hilarious circus of playing calling and game planning ineptitude Beck over saw at UNL can in no way be linked or compared to what frost is doing.
  14. The lack of a long snapper makes this class a complete failure. F grades all around
