      The Washington Mule Deer has a nice ring to it.

      I think the team needs input from the Sioux, Cherokee, Commanche, Navajo, etc, and all of the other great tribes, more than they need pressure from corporate business leaders or my input.

       

       

  2. Omaha losing too many good restaurants lately. Dundee Dell closing down for good.

      Ugh, that stinks.  Lots of good memories of that place.

      I hate to see places like that go. I didn’t even know the place but can tell from their menu that another piece of Americana is gone.

       

      So far, I only know of one local restaurant that has closed for good and they were relatively new, only a couple years old.

      Loved the fish and chips...but the prices sucked.

  3. Womp womp. Best breakfast joint in Omaha.

      Lincoln said that if he could save the Union without freeing slaves he would do it.

      FWIW, I wasn't saying the Robert E Lee dish was racist. I just thought it was weird that an Omaha, Nebraska restaurant would only give one dish a name and they named it after Robert E Lee, a confederate douche. 

    4. teachercd

      teachercd

      Yeah, Omaha should have the Otay Burger.

  4. Well, it's official, if a bit delayed. As of last Friday we are no longer children of the corn :(

      I'd give it another decade before I approximate anything close to an adult :lol:

      ZRod got it. We're... Michiganders now? Is that the correct terminology?

      Yes. As stupid as it sounds...

       

      Welcome to the murder mitten! Its a friendly place. My first greeting in downtown Detroit was some dude telling me to "walk on b!^@h" because I looked him in the eye as we passed.

      Whereabouts in the mitten? I really enjoyed the few days I spent in the Kalamazoo area. Lots of good beer thereabouts.

  5. What expectations do Broncos homers have for Melvin Gordon this year?

      @Atbone95 Oh I'm a huge Melvin believer in terms of talent. IMO Lindsay is the clear #2.

       

      I wound up with him in a 32 team Dynasty startup today so I'm just looking for someone to tell me I didn't screw up!

  6. 3 big questions on Martinis:

    1) Gin or Vodka?

    2) Shaken or stirred?

    3) Mixed or rinsed with vermouth?

      Yeah, I think we're going to see a night to day change in our special teams and kicking specifically.

       

      This is why I still have confidence Frost will get the ship righted. He sees the same problems we do....and then goes about correcting them. I can't say our last two coaches did the same.

      @ZRod is it ok if I have my BM in the morning? Or do I have a problem? 

    3. ZRod

      ZRod

      @krc1995 that's really the best time to have a BM. Gets you feeling light and ready to take on the day.

  10. Anyone got experience buying 3rd party extended warranty from dealer on a used car? Good/bad?

    1. man eating mastodon

      Definitely check what they cover!

    2. HuskerInLostWages

      HuskerInLostWages

      My only experience is them calling out of the blue claiming my new trucks warranty is about to expire after a week and maybe 200 miles.  Now they just robo dial me once a week claiming this will be their last call, but I know it wont be.

    3. 4skers89

      4skers89

      See if they require photos of broken or worn out parts.  Happened to a coworker on some leaking AC hoses.  Just because they say they cover a part doesn't mean they'll make it straight forward to get any money out of them.  They've always given off a scammy feel to me.  I go the self insured route.

  11. So this Rose Bowl ought to be an interesting case study in whether our future offense can work in the Big 10, right?

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      I'm not sure how silimar their offense is to ours anymore.  But similar enough to get a feel.

       

      Someone said the same thing about Memphis against Penn State.  The Tigers offense looked pretty good.

    2. Danny Bateman

      Danny Bateman

      Personally I'm not on Team "That O won't work in the Big 10." But I agree it's not a perfectly analogous offense either.

       

      Should be a good game either way.

    3. Mavric

      I'm on the "we've already seen that it does work in the B1G" team.

  12. Every time I watch Wisconsin I just get frustrated knowing they're what we should be. What we used to be.

      @ColoradoHusk either that or the team a few years ago that went 12-0 and lost a close game in the conference championship to Ohio State

      The best thing TO could have done is run the show from the AD chair like Alvarez.

      They got totally dominated...once OSU woke up.  They were the sacrificial lamb.  They were UVA vs Clemson except that Daba pushed the right buttons to motivate his team from the start.

       

      Did Wisconsin even gain a yard in the second half?

  13. How do Rivals and 247 stack up?
     

    From what I gather 247 is better now but Rivals has a pretty cool promo going right now with some free swag and wondered if it was worth it.

    1. Mavric

      Mavric

      I personally think 247 does a better job overall (nationwide).  But the Husker Online guys do a great job of covering Nebraska - games, practices, recruiting ... everything.  So it kind of depends on what you're looking for.

    2. Cdog923

      Cdog923

      It depends on who annoys you more: Sean Callahan, or Mike Schaefer. 

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      They stack up nicely as long as 247 is on top of Rivals. If you stack Rivals on top of 247 then you have R's and s's falling off the sides.

      Needling? Let me know when the trifecta with prodding and ribbing is completed.

  16. Nate Gerry just had a pick 6 for the Eagles.

  18. Anybody use ESPN+? Is it worth it?

    1. The Dude

      The Dude

      I do for Boxing and I think $10 per month is too much.  If you like all sports, maybe worth it?  I guess?

    2. Micheal

      Micheal

      I think it would be worth it if you have an FCS team or something you enjoy watching. 

    3. Danny Bateman

      Danny Bateman

      @The Dude I wanted it for MMA and boxing, mainly. The UFC has basically forced people to buy it if they want to watch events.  I find the concept of having to buy the PPVs on top of an ESPN+ sub for the biggest fights annoying, though.

       

      Anyway, I wound up getting it for $3.33/mo for a year. How are you paying $10?

  19. Periodic reminder TO didn't win a conference championship until his 3rd season nor a natty until his 22nd.

      Sweet. I've downloaded that one and have it set up currently. It's probably five times better than having your BTC on an exchange account.

       

      In 2013-2014 I ran a full node with Bitcoin Core on the PC I'm using right now...but now the blockchain is a pretty big file size and that's pretty annoying. If you wind up amassing a large amount of Bitcoin, running the full install of Core is wise, if not then Electrum is great.

      So how do you actually make money? Doesnt someone have to actually pay you real money for the bitcoin, or be willing to take it as a form of payment for some good/service? Im not sold on it, seems like monopoly money to me. Theres no standard for it like with real money(gold, silver).

    4. Undone

      You trade it on an exchange just like you would with an e-Trade account, etc. There are a bunch of purely online Bitcoin exchanges where traders (read: degenerate gamblers) all over the world are trading Bitcoin.

       

      You deposit real dollars to your exchange account and then buy Bitcoin. Then that Bitcoin either sits in your account, or you withdrawal it to a wallet program on your computer like Danny did, or you trade it on your exchange account.

       

      And the cool thing is, unlike let's say the NYSE, there's no open & close times. It's 24/7.

  22. I don't know if anyone watched the fights Saturday, but Thiago Santos tore his ACL/MCL/PCL/meniscus in a fight with Jon Jones and FINISHED the fight! :o

    1. Xmas32

      Xmas32

      Yeah he gutted it out for sure, great effort on his part.  Looked like he hurt it right at the end of R1 when he came down awkwardly.  Would've been interesting if he didn't get hurt as he was definitely getting the better of the exchanges with Jones and even on one leg he managed a split decision.  Jones looked like he could care less out there and just seemed to be content to throw some leg attacks and eek out a decision.

  23. The missus and I just got done watching the movie Hereditary. And wow, what a rollercoaster mindf---.

    1. Enhance

      Enhance

      That's a really solid movie. It has one of the most visceral and honest family arguments I've ever seen in film, on top of all the shocking creepiness to it.

       

      I think I've told this story on here before, but I was sort of bummed out watching it because my wife spontaneously invited her parents over for dinner the night I wanted to watch it. We had been planning for several days to watch the movie that night so I knew going into it that it would NOT be the kind of movie my in-laws wanted to watch. I was acutely aware the whole time that they didn't really like it because they would occasionally start side conversations, get on their phones, etc. It sort of dampened the whole experience for me.

    2. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      I watched it last night after seeing your update. It is pretty bizarre...I liked it.

       

      Seems most give it either 5* or 1*, not much in between. I get that given the nature of the film but I'm leaning more towards 5*.

    3. Danny Bateman

      Danny Bateman

      @JJ Husker I get what you mean by that. It's just a very odd film no matter how you feel about it. Definitely unsettling even if you don't find it particularly scary.

      I enjoyed it for what it was.
