  1. Last I heard, they had a long ways to go. They're not overly profitable. I believe they also needed additional investments late last year ($40 million, IIRC). Color me surprised by Adrian's reaction in that game too, though. His little saunter was totally out of character but I'm all for it.

    Good bye Greg Bell

    He probably thought it was easier to place blame elsewhere. It's fairly disappointing if he's actually telling the truth now.

    Good bye Greg Bell

    Well, good to see Bell has come clean about what happened.

    Martinez for Heisman

    One thing I really love about Frost as a coach (because I don't have a reason to not love it yet) is his appreciation and acceptance of expectations. He talks about it a lot and you can definitely hear similar things out of his players' mouths. It's one of the biggest reasons I have a fair amount of confidence in him and Martinez. Leadership comes in a variety of forms, but my preferred type of leadership has always involved honesty and an open approach to goals and expectations. You can't hide from them or run from them. You can accept them for what they are and still flourish.
  5. I see what you're getting at, but my criticisms of the writing go deeper and into the core structure. I'm removing virtually all the set pieces and looking at it as a story, and I just don't think it works. The casino world was pointless. "Leia Poppins" was ridiculous. Poe's story arc was sort of pathetic. Holdo's decisions and motivations are left vague. The Resistance's cat and mouse game that lasts for two hours is written in such a way that it's clear they want to have the resistance win, which is lazy. I guess I can agree that if you take this out of the Star Wars universe, maybe it works a little bit better, but in a vacuum I don't think it works as a story in general. The problems only get compounded when you consider that it is a Star Wars movie.
  6. Personally, when I say I think it had bad writing, I don't think it had bad writing for a Star Wars movie. I think it had bad writing as a movie. So, to me, different characters and a different setting wouldn't have in any way altered how I feel about it.

    DOJ Initial Russia Hearings

    The reaction from Trump and his supporters feels expected. Without a clear "he did it" and an indictment, that means "innocent" in their eyes.

    2019 Spring Game - April 13 @ 1:00 CDT on BTN

    I think it's certainly possible they could utilize Luke's athleticism outside of him riding the bench all season. But, by all accounts, Luke is a quarterback. That's the full-go plan and Mario really likes him. There's a lot more to wide receiver than just athleticism/speed in this offense. You also have to ask yourself if what he could bring to the table is more valuable than the four or five guys that'll see the majority of WR snaps this season. At this point, I don't think I've seen much evidence to suggest that other than he's quick, and that's not much.
  9. Agreed, which is exactly what it should have been. TLJ is a solid example of what bad writing will net you. The lack of fun was one reason I wasn't a big fan of Rogue One either, though. It was too brooding and moody for my tastes.

    Avengers 4: Endgame

    Reminds of the big social media movement to prevent spoilers from The Crimes of Grindelwald. Hopefully the Russo bro's twist isn't as disappointing.
  11. Solo was entertaining, at least. It felt like a Star Wars movie to me. It felt more like Star Wars than TLJ did, IMO.

    Your Most Fun Time At A Huskers Game

    It helps prove that Nebraska did indeed have exciting games in the last 20 years. Very few blowouts are ever mentioned as a fan's most "fun" experience. The games that are mentioned either had massive implications to pair with the result ('96 Fiesta Bowl, '92 Colorado) or they featured some extraordinary element (the tOSU and Wisconsin comebacks, the '08 Colorado game, or '09 Missouri game just to name a few). It's elitist and absurd to suggest anything in the last 20 years lacked excitement.
  13. I've had so many fixed feelings about the most recent saga. TFA was entertaining but had way too many ANH similarities for my tastes. Then, much of the promise of Rey's story was fairly well obliterated in TLJ (if you can't tell, I didn't think that was a good movie). This one looks promising and I'm glad JJ is back, but part of me feels this saga will ultimately leave much to be desired. It already has in several ways. All that said, I'm still hype AF to go see this.

    I think this gets undervalued at times. A player can drill it thousands of times, but a clean snap (especially when you exclusively run shotgun) is tough. Even some of the best spread offense centers in the last decade have had a few whiffs here and there. I remember in last year's MSU game, one of the final snaps in the victory formation almost went over Martinez' head. Drove me nuts that we were snapping the ball like that in that situation, but it's also the team's identity and they're far more comfortable with that than they are snaps under center, so there's really no other option.

    Center play is going to be interesting to gauge in general. I don't think Jurgens looked great, but he's learning the position and it seems (on the surface at least) the coaches are trying really hard to groom him for that spot. Here's to hoping he's 100% in the fall and makes big strides this summer.
