  1. Elon’s version of “free speech” is a joke.
  2. Isn’t that how Fred’s offense is supposed to work? I’m kind of a green when it comes to basketball but it seemed his offenses at ISU were fast-paced and generated a lot of scoring chances pretty equally rather than needing to be facilitated by one or two scorers.
  3. Even watching us mostly struggle and lose games the same way., I've been consistently impressed with Keisei's play. He's a fairly reliable 3 point shooter, which is so much nicer than watching Mayen getting open looks and chuck up brick after brick last year... but more importantly, he's a hustle guy and always seems willing to play unselfish ball and make an extra pass if it gets someone else a better shot. He's the consummate team player. Just a really, really wholesome, likeable dude. Great to see him explode tonight. Idk man, maybe this is finally the Hoiberg team that could grind and break through, just a little bit. If the football team has taught me anything, it's to lower my expectations and be very happy with consistent, if unspectacular, improvement year over year.
  4. It's fair to say Rhule is way more proven in succeeding in circumstances like the ones we're currently facing than Fickell, IMO.
  5. That's just fine with me because it's been utter dogs#!t ever since Bo left. IMO NU has a recruiting FLOOR of ~Top 30-35 classes anyway. If Rhule can actually develop talent he gets we're gonna be overshooting that eventually. Even Frost was capable of doing that, he just was complete a$$ at player development. I wonder if there are any legs to the thought that Lloyd being one of the first offers immediately after the Rhule hiring indicates he was a guy Mickey was in on but didn't want to offer prior to the new coach taking over (and implying Mickey will be staying). Obviously Coleman seems onboard with Coach Rhule and he's 100% a Mickey guy.
  6. A lot of Husker fans are miserable SOBs. Nobody’s opinion is any more correct than anyone else’s. But…. There is hope. We don’t have to say f#&% everything anymore. GBR
  7. This is us after yesterday and I don't even care. Embrace the suck. Screw Iowa.
  8. Kind of like conservatives do to trans people?
  9. ^^^ not sure the video thumbnail could've been less flattering for her, but that face is pretty emblematic of her overall contribution to society.
  10. Pence is someone who absolutely will not get off his talking points, nor will he do anything he feels could hurt his carefully cultivated political image. It's why any 2024 aspirations are DOA. He's not authentic, he's 100% manufactured. It's the same reason people don't like Ted Cruz or Hillary. Their image is phony.
  11. I feel like his name is just a ripoff of KenPom
  12. Man I don't want to be TOO cynical but all it would take would be someone inside the Athletic Department feeding this to Sipple to throw him off, too. Sip is a mouthpiece for the department.
  13. My point was that the margin in Florida isn’t very useful because of how strongly Republican Cubans are. So I just think that context is important. The GOP is gaining with them but personally for me it’s pretty meh. Hispanics aren’t a monolith so it’s not like the same equal amounts of the same groups of them are trending Republicans evenly across swing states, etc. For instance the heavy shift in Florida probably skewed the national margin. And younger Hispanics are likely more liberal than older ones, just like other nationalities. Rhere are some lessons to learn there but they’re not very clear nor very generalizable.
  14. You can’t extrapolate Florida Hispanics nationwide because how much Cubans skew the sample there. So in reality it doesn’t tell us much.
  15. NBC just called the Arizona Governor's race for Hobbs. Meaning the Trumpist candidates ran in swing states all lost. Except Lombardo in Nevada and I'm not even sure calling him a Trumpist is accurate. He's more of your run-of-the-mill ring kisser. I think we're entering the phase where everyone except the hardcores pretend they never supported him.
  16. Masto should win in NV. There are too many votes outstanding in Clark county (Vegas) to be offset the rural votes dribbling in which will favor L:axalt. Unless he magically starts running up ridiculous margins in Vegas (zero evidence this will occur), she will pull away. That should hopefully render Georgia a moot point and give Republicans there permission to stay home or cross the aisle to avoid the trainwreck that is Herschel Walker. Dems gaining a seat in the Senate while the Rs get to deal with a nightmare situation in the House and get their butts kicked in a lot of statewide elections is pretty fantastic, IMO. The House is a meme body anyway. I'm sure they'll be firing up the panels to investigate Hunter Biden and Hillary ASAP.
  17. One of the most hopeless gerrymanders in the country. And it’s been this way for years. WI is at the top of the list we keep getting put on those “countries backsliding on democracy” lists.
  18. Stop hating on teach for being a proud investor in Vietnamese currency!
  19. This is his version of... errr, male insecurity, isn't it?
  20. No one is as they age. It's normal age-related cognitive decline. There's a difference between that and all the dishonest armchair MDs that accuse him of having DeMeNTiA. Our political system also generally rewards us with a ton of really old elected officials. It's a stupid quirk of the system.
  21. Maybe an unpopular opinion here, but the race I was most happy to see go the way it does was the Pennsylvania Senate race. Screw Dr. Oz. That guy is an unscrupulous piece of crap who hocked stuff he knew was at best useless and at worse harmful to morons just to make a buck and then carpetbagged his way all the way to some random state because he got bored on TV and wanted power just cuz. Conversely, Fetterman is just the type of candidate Democrats should be running. He's a well-known, well-liked brand in his state and despite his flaws, seems extremely authentic, which is a nice contrast with Oz. And he outperformed Biden in his home state. Running candidates who are well-liked in their state running on popular local issues instead of relying on whoever can kiss the party leader's butt the most seems like smart politics.
  22. You don’t go party with them like DeSantis do you?
  23. They have a much more diverse electorate with positions that are much less homogenous. That makes it a lot harder to stitch together electorally. Well that, and the radicalization of much of the electorate at the hands of religious institutions and right-wing news obviously isn’t doing them any favors.
