    New "No Blind Blocking" Rule

    I'm interested (nervous?) to see how this is actually enforced because it seems like there could be a lot of nuance. For example, if I'm a blocker pursuing a defender, and that defender's shoulders are squared up to me, but their head is turned and I'm technically outside their current "field of vision," will I be penalized for hitting them? I can understanding wanted to do away with the hits that happen on the side/shoulder pad area where a tackler clearly couldn't see it coming, but the language seems a bit vague. That said, I don't rightly know or recall how many hits Nebraska blockers had last year that would qualify as a penalty now. I can't think of any off the top of my head but I'm sure there were some.

    YouTube TV question

    I agree - this would be the best case scenario in the future, but my assumption is that it'll never happen this way. It's probably not cost effective for the network providers and the platforms like YTV/Hulu/etc. to go the a la carte route. They know too many people would go 'just the sports' route or go really simple/cheap, and there'd probably be quite a few channels that nobody would really want. I don't think a lot of people realize what's happening though. Pretty soon, the money people think they're going to be saving by cutting the cord is just going to be shifted into different revenue streams. With internet + all the different streaming services I have, I'm close to or around $200/month. 18 months ago I was around ~$125 probably? It's getting to the point where I think I'm going to have to start making tough decisions about what I want to keep because I honestly just don't have enough time to watch all the crap I pay for.

    YouTube TV question

    Agreed. I've had it for a little more than a year and I was able to watch every single Husker game last year without issue. I live in Omaha. Streaming quality was fantastic with SMARTCAST. As far as I know, everyone has to have the 'base' package which is ~50 channels for $49.99/month, but then there are a bunch of add-on channels and network packages you can get if you want Starz, Showtime, etc. But, since I only purchased it for the college football and Formula 1 seasons, I don't watch a whole lot other than sports. That said, earlier this year, they added the Discovery network of channels (Travel Channel, Food Network) and I like some of those shows so that's been pretty solid. They also gave me Showtime for free from May to September this year when I hit my one year anniversary.

    Alternate Uniforms 2019

    I've always liked the Nebraska patch. It feels like a very college football type thing to do and I like that programs have the flexibility to do some of that stuff.

    Game Day Parking

    My go-to for the last several years has been parking at the garage on the southwest corner of 9th and O St. If you enter downtown from the West O St. bridge, you turn right onto 9th St. and it's immediately on the corner right there. Some caveats, though. I recommend getting to this garage early if you wish to use it, at least three but preferably four hours before kick off. Any later than that and they will likely ask you if it's OK if they put you into a closed off spot, meaning they will pack other cars around yours and you'll have to wait for a couple of hours after the game before you can get your car out. But, this garage is pretty close to the stadium, and if you plan to spend a good chunk of your day in Lincoln, it's a good place.

    Alternate Uniforms 2019

    I'm OK with the Nebraska patch, adidas and conference logos, but the 150 patch is far too conspicuous and just makes the whole thing too over-the-top. A helmet sticker for that would've been much better. Also, I could stand to see the adidas/conference logos shrunk a bit. They're massive.

    2019 AP Preseason Top 25

    Clemson is the only ACC team making it this year. I don't think anybody else in that conference has the depth or talent right now to make the CFP. It'll probably be Georgia, Bama and Clemson again. The fourth spot is the real iffy one and could go to any number of teams at this point I think.

    2019 AP Preseason Top 25

    One interesting piece of this is that the B1G will probably be on the outside looking in when the playoff rolls around.

    Big fan. I think these are the best alts we've had to this point. Also @knapplc everything I'm hearing is the game is TBD.

    Is it just me or does Tyrin Ferguson's gear at the ~2:45 mark look straight out of the 90's.

    One Player from the Riley Disaster

    Based on the thread title, I actually thought this thread was going to present the argument that if a specific play from the Pelini era had gone a different way then the 'Riley disaster' wouldn't have happened.

    Are we or aren’t we Rivals

    I think we should look no further than this off-season for evidence of that. A 4-8 Nebraska team has commanded more interest and debate than any other team in the West division so far. That has to rankle the feathers a bit if I'm a Hawkeye because the Hawkeyes have been better of late. Such is the nature of Nebraska football and it's really just a taste of what will come should Nebraska be a consistent national player again.

    Fall Camp Notes

    Barry made an interesting comment to Michael Bruntz (I think?) yesterday, basically that Barry noticed he was not having to spend as much time engaging with offensive line players this fall camp in run blocking. The defensive line is doing a better job of freeing up the linebackers to make plays. So, I wonder how much possible improvement along the line will ultimately impact Barry's play. It's possible that he (and a lot of other players, to be fair) were still trying to do too much in order to make up for inconsistencies elsewhere.
  15. #1stWorldProblemRant: a lot of people in the 55+ demo must not know what AirPods are. People at my work (including complete strangers) will try to strike up polite conversations with me when I have them in.

    I mean, it's obvious they're headphones, right? Which comes with the innate understanding that the person is probably listening to something, yeah? Is it because they're hard to see? What other reason would a stranger have for trying to tell me why they're tired after walking for 15 minutes on a treadmill in the company gym??? This kind of stuff happens far too often.

     

    And the worst is when I'm actually having a phone conversation on them. People can hear me talking and they try to interrupt. It's like they think I'm talking to myself.

      I go with the old big headphones that plug into my record player.  Is it a pain to carry around?  Yes.  Does it make me seem like a hipster douche, they do.
