    Give props, or no?

    I think there is a happy middle ground that Nebraska existed in when we were at our best. Hold yourself to higher standards, but at the same time always be on the look out for areas where the rules can be ethically pushed/stretched. It’s a fine line, but with strong leadership, and a healthy vision for the administration, team, & fan base it can happen.

    End of NCAA College Football?

    Student-athletes deserve to get paid for the services they provide to the University. It will not be what they expect/want, but they do deserve compensation for what they do. During my education within the University of Nebraska system, I worked as a graduate teaching assistant for both of my graduate degrees. I provided a service to the university. As a result, I got a tuition waiver and a small stipend (about $1000 a month). My education was not free (I have the student loan debt to support that fact), but I was generously compensated by the University. In my case, my service was research and teaching classes. With athletes, they bring in millions of dollars in enrollment and fan support. Every school will have a different model, but it is time to explode the amateurism myth for what it is. "Amateurism" is simply a way for "non-profit" organizations like the NCAA and its member schools, to get free labor without having to pay for it.

    Everything is going to be fine people. Losing sucks, but burning down the farm after game two doesn’t get us anywhere. Relax.

    QB options

    If anything, I think this is a reason to go big with the playbook from the go with Akron. Don’t worry about hits on Martinez, and hope that you can get backups into the game early!

    White Vs. Cream Helmets

    I realize that I am getting dangerously close to the point where I am no longer consider a "young fan," but I always thought it was cool that the helmets had that slight cream color to them. I never liked the "bright" white that we transitioned to. Then again, I'm the kind of guy that likes the well-worn baseball cap look. Our helmets SHOULD look like they were outside too long!

    New Tunnel Walk Ideas 2018

    NDSU does this, and is almost a complete replication of our tunnel walk. I could not live with the Bison fans if we did this. PLEASE BABY JESUS NO!

    *** Official 2018 Spring Game Thread ***

    Like deciding the two-deep based off of one practice, I wouldn’t read too much into the fact they changed he tunnel walk song. I could easily see them switching back for week one. That said, I don’t think the song choice was an accident. If we have to ditch the 90’s “Sirius” to get the fan base to “come together” I am surprisingly okay with that.

    Not super clear to me either, but if I were to venture a guess it would be that there are 6 pillars that they appear to be using to describe the goals of the program.
  12. Who would boil ribs?!?!
  13. I do agree, when cooking things like steak that I want a sear on...I have an old cast skillet that I heat up with a bit of oil in it on the highest setting. Put the steak/burger in the skillet for a couple minutes per side, then just cut down the heat and cook normally.
  14. I absolutely love my Traeger. It can do do the grilling aspect quite well, and I actually like a Traeger burger/steak/chicken breast far more than a propane one. Basically you get the cook and flavor of a wood/charcoal grill with the control of your indoor oven. That and if you want to use it as a smoker, you can. For me, it was whether I would buy both a smoker & a grill, or just the Traeger. It is pricey, but I don't think I would/could go back at this point. That said, there are off brand which supposedly are just as good. I know that Cabelas has a good selection of pellet fueled grill/smoker combos.

    B10 Opener 2018

    I might be in the minority, but I am going to do everything in my power to just try and enjoy the "ups & downs" of this upcoming season. Of course I want Big Red to win every game from now until the end of time. And I will probably mope and pout when they inevitably lose. But I just find it incredibly hard to have expectations for this season. Not just because I think they have to rebuild (which they do), but mostly because I have absolutely no idea what to expect. But to answer my thoughts to your questions: QB = Martinez with Gebbia as backup. Defense = Unfortunately no. They will fly around and look like blackshirts, but I think they are going to get repeatedly gashed for big plays.
