      In high school and through a few years of college, I’d host a poker night with buddies. I really miss those nights. 

  2. First time coaching girls...as of right now...they complain SOOOO MUCH LESS than guys.  Oh my god, it is night and day.

      @In the Deed the Glory glad to know I'm not the only one that's noticed this. I have no idea how they jump with their arms straight up but usually they don't get much air.  In volleyball they use their arms and bend their legs to jump.  It's very strange, almost like an instinctive reaction to a basketball bouncing around the rim that can't be changed.  Usually the basketball gets volleyed between a few hands before someone gains possession.

      That is so funny!  Our VB girls on the BB team can't jump...but when they play VB they can just just fine!

  3. Today is such a huge game for the Huskers...they can't drop games (especially at home) to teams as bad as Illinois.

    1. ColoradoHusk

      ColoradoHusk

      Illinois is better than the record shows.  They have had a very tough schedule so far.  That said, NU does need to win this game at home.

    2. teachercd

      teachercd

      Ugggg...They are not better than the record shows.  They allow 55% FG's, they send the other team to the line about 30+ times a game...They won't win over 12 games this year.

      Nice reverse jinx attempt.

      That scene was fantastic.  Pure horror.

       

      I loved that character, but the actor is right, the show grievously misused him.

      Pffft. You guys don't know what you're missing. In this other show, where the guy did that thing......damn that was good.

      I've always maintained that Wisconsin wasn't that strong, everyone else was just that weak (they dodged the stronger teams). The entire Big Ten West is raising the bar, and that caught up with Wisconsin. 

       

      There is very little separation in teams in this division right now, as evidenced by the division champ entering play today being out gained by nearly a yard per play.

    3. StPaulHusker

      StPaulHusker

      It’s almost as if Wisconsin isn’t going to be able to recruit in the 30’s and 40’s every year and just beat people up anymore

    4. teachercd

      teachercd

      Exactly StPaul...It has caught up with them.  This was supposed to be (for the most part) their best team ever...But having a s#!t QB...Crappy LBers...a DC that isn't as good as the other DC and a bunch of "under the radar" players has bit them in the a$$.  They are Red/White Iowa.

  6. Devine over 92.5 yards tomorrow?  

    1. B.B. Hemingway

      B.B. Hemingway

      It's gotta be right around there if we're going to have a chance to win, in my opinion. The Total yards magic number is 400.

    2. swmohusker

      Rushing no... total yes.

    3. brophog

      Yes. Goes out in style.

  7. So can I stream the game on Fox?  I am stuck with that as my option for the first 15 minutes or so.

    1. ColoradoHusk

      ColoradoHusk

      You should be able to stream it on the Fox Sports Go app or thru your computer. Just need to sign in thru your DirecTV account.

      Red Baron and Tony's are both made by Schwan's, along with Freschetta and a few others. They're all made in the same place down in Salina, KS, which is where the original Tony's Pizza restaurant was. (I used to live in Salina, lol.)

      I did some researching on the "origin of the jump stop." A few of the officiating websites stated that the traveling rules have been pretty much intact since inception and that the jump stop is part of the original rule (two feet landing at the same time) :dunno 

    3. Mavric

      Mavric

      It depends on what you are calling a jump stop.  What it is supposed to be is catching the ball in the air then landing on both feet.  If you are saying they are catching it with one foot on the ground then jumping and coming down on both feet, that is technically not a travel.  That is a legal play per the rule book and always has been.  The catch is that you don't have a pivot foot in that scenario - you have to keep both feet on the ground where they are or jump and release the ball in the air.  If you do that an then pivot, then it is a travel.

    4. wiuhusker

      wiuhusker

      If you want to watch someone who has mastered the art of when to pick up a basketball watch Harden. All of his moves look like travels but he has it timed perfectly that his "1st Step" is also at the same time he picks the ball up. Then what most people consider as steps 2 and 3 are actually 1 and 2 and this is why he is so hard to guard. 

  10. Hopefully other people are starting to finally realize how lame MSU and Wisconsin are.

      This is why I figured 9 or 10 wins.  The West sucks...it has always been a division based off of not winning games but making sure you don't lose games.

    3. ColoradoHusk

      ColoradoHusk

      The "not losing games" is how Northwestern is going to win this super lame Big Ten West.  Purdue, Nebraska, and Iowa handed NW their games, Michigan State is pretty average, and Wisconsin was playing with a backup QB.

    4. teachercd

      Wisconsin is always playing with a backup QB.

  11. Who posts more while at work than at home?  I know I do.

    1. GSG

      GSG

      I very rarely check HB at home. I might read a few posts after a game (like this weekend) just to see what the temperature is

    2. SandhillshuskerW

      SandhillshuskerW

      I definitely post more at work. I hardly ever check it at home and I don't check it on my cell phone.

  12. Anyone else like the weird camera shots we got during the game today?

      JJ Husker

      IDK about weird camera shots specifically but that was one of the worst covered games from top to bottom I’ve ever seen. I can’t really consider much beyond Brady Quinn and that other numbnut.  They were absolutely horrible. I’m rewatching it today and I really want to punch those guys.

    3. Savage Husker

      Savage Husker

      Hated the off camera angles. Also couldn’t see JD at the bottom of the screen on the fumble. There were moments where Quinn did not sound intelligent when speaking, that’s not a criticism of his analysis, but on his grammar. To criticize his analysis, I couldn’t believe he said that after NU forced the punt after the fumble that the turnover didn’t bite the Huskers. Buddy...we were inside the 10 yard line.

    4. JJ Husker

      Fox has always sucked at college football but my bias against yesterday's broadcast started in the studio show before the game. Their know-all pointspread guru was laughing, wondering how when the game opened at -21.5, "who is betting on Nebraska?" to bring the line down to 19. His prediction, 45-17 or something like that. Good job dumbf#ck.

  13. OSU Team Total Today:  46.5  If they don't go over that I will be shocked.

      That is a good way to put it...I think I was hoping for Goodfellas+Departed.

  15. Do you ever, just for a split second, wonder why posters stop posting?  I mean the super dorks (like me) with lots of posts...like...did they die, did that mail-order wife finally arrive, did they have a date that didn't result in them getting arrested?

      meanwhile, Purdue favored over Iowa by 2.5

      Domer's by 7.5 over NW

      Michigan 11.5 over Penn State

      I don't remember that.  But your post did give my an idea.  Right now most people would agree that ESPN is a joke, FoxNews, MSNBC and their ilk are a joke, and the weather channel is a joke because they try to stretch 3 hours of news into 24.  What if a new channel came up with a 6 hour cycle that included sports stories and scores, national and world news, and cool stories about tornadoes and hurricanes?  If there is a TV executive here, please don't be shy about sharing profits.

       

      Nevermind, I have the internet....

  18. Went to Lincoln today...it was weird because it was by the far the deadest I have ever seen the bars before and during the game...But even today was probably more packed and more fun/packed than most other big ten bars.

    1. krc1995

      Did the 11 am start have anything to do with it?

      Maybe, but I don't think a lot...Barry's, which is usually shoulder to shoulder on the roof and on the main floor was wide open...Sandy's which is usually butt to butt before the game was about half filled.

    3. brophog

      brophog

      Probably more to do with this being a make up game.

      That article sums it up perfectly. I'll cut Frost a bit of slack though since this team is nothing at all like UCF had last year. Pretty tough to have confidence in guys to do something they have shown no sign of being able to do. A little development on our OL and with our perimeter blocking and he can get back to being as aggressive as he wants.

    4. Moiraine

      Moiraine

      I like this guy's dedication to UCF and have read some of his other analyses, but it would have made more sense for him to compare Frost's 2016 tendencies vs. his tendencies now.

      Its funny because it is more expensive than the Athletic and you get far less unique content. I get the local Husker angle but today on the Athletic they had a story about Glynn Watson and the Huskers... I get they need to make money but charging for subscriptions is not the best route. Figuring out a way to get advertising viewed is the way.
