    I think Frost could have managed the freshman players last year better, but even those who played still redshirted with the 4-game redshirt rule. Only a few first-year guys didn’t utilize a redshirt last season. “Burning a redshirt” wasn’t an issue in 2019. If anything, Frost could have played a couple freshmen more and burned their redshirts.
     

    Rahmir Johnson comes to mind as a guy who could have played more in the 2nd half of the season, but Frost was insistent in keeping his redshirt. He may not have been fully ready to be great last year, but I don’t know if maintaining his 5th year of eligibility was worth not playing him. 

    I agree...the idea of saving a guy for his 5th year is nuts.  With leaving early, injuries, transferring and getting recruited over there is no reason to save a guy for 5 years later.

    I'm not a fan of Trump, but in what way is this bad? People getting back to work or 401k's recovering is a good thing for the country. I've never understood the whole "nose despite your face" mentality. Root for America as a whole to succeed. Not everyone's voting decisions are tied to those two metrics. 

    It is not bad, it is great.  I want the stock market up...I want unemployment down and I want the economy strong.

     

    But if you hate Trump...and he has all 3 of those going "his way"...well...it is reelection time.

    Sorry for the confusion.  I should have been more specific.  I'm definitely not agreeing that there are no good cops out there.  Earlier when I believe BlitzFirst was essentially suggesting a "code" or "Brotherhood" exists among police that makes it difficult for good cops to call out bad cops.  Well, the situation in Buffalo, NY is a perfect example.  The following  questions are not directed to you personally, because for all I know you could be a great cop.  You need not answer them, but can if you want.   But these are some of questions I and probably a lot of us (non-LEO's) have.

     

    Why didn't any of those cops help that man or confront the coward who pushed him to the ground.  Why didn't those other three officers stop Chauvin from killing George Floyd.  Why do other cops witness bad behavior like an officer shooting reporters with rubber bullets and do nothing to stop it.  Why when my burglar alarm went off two years ago (false alarm) did it take the Omaha Police 32 min to respond, but when a "help an officer' call goes out, Cops seemingly come out of the woodwork and are all over the place.  Why did the first responding OPD officer to the Von Maur Shooting refuse to go in alone, citing a then dept policy of waiting for backup.  A couragous Douglas County Deputy then went in on his own, because people needed help--Police depts need more of those guys.  

     

    I have a very strong opinion that too often police are more concerned with protecting their own than serving the public.  I would say this much more rampant in large municipal departments than smaller ones, but that's just a guess.  There's clearly a systematic failure here.  Bad leadership?  Existence of Police Unions?  Major changes need to happen.  I used to trust Cops,  now I'm not so sure.

    We homeowners should do that too! If we all a got together and agreed to never pay mortgage payments again, the banks would have no cash to pay attorneys to do the paperwork to foreclose all our houses.  

     

    If we all pull out our savings and checkings the month prior, stop mortgage payments, and let the banks fold we'd all be set! I don't see what could go wrong!

     

    :sarcasm

     

    I am soooo in!!!

     

    My buddy was totally shocked at his [email protected]!e apt "friends" They were all just looking for that freebie.

    I hear you. I have an angry, activist teenage daughter talking all sort of s#!t about police, and I have to remind her that, as with any group, you can't just them all by the worst of the batch.

     

    But the last few days watching police departments and unions circling the wagons, doubling down, and blatantly lying about things we can see on video has been killing my case. 

     

    (Also, the cop shown kneeling in solidarity with protestors one day, and kicking a young woman in the head the next)

    And angry teen???

     

    Have you had her start listening to The Cure...because that seemed to work for all of them in the 80's

    I just thought he talked well and seemed like less of an idiot compared to Trump and even Biden but now it's obvious he's a total douche.

    I think his "tough guy" persona made him really popular for that short amount of time.  I think people sort of wanted to see someone stand up to Trump and he did.

    Can't find Frost's comment on it, but he was pretty upset. 

     

    He said people like to paint coaches and players in a bad light, and "it's just football" and "we can go a year without playing". But that he has spoken to the business owners around Lincoln, and he is scared what a year without home games would do to the Lincoln community financially. 

    I read that Barry's has over 5,000 people come through their doors on gameday.  5 dollars each, 25,000 right there.  175,000 just at the door for games...not counting the spring game.  Think how much each person spends once inside.  They can't make that revenue up.

     

    There is a reason all those bars (well almost all) open at 8 or 9am on gameday.

    Easy for me.  I didn't even look past Purdue.  Conference game.  Season opener.  It sets the tone for the rest of the season. We lose, that oh sh!t mentality kicks in and it's hard to recover from that IMHO.  Got to lay the wood early and often this season to get to a bowl.  It starts with Purdue....HAVE to get bowl eligible in that 7 game streak.  The last five games look TOUGH.  Not saying any of the first 7 are gimmes.......Just feel this game sets the tone for the rest of the season.

    Yep...

     

    Losing to Purdue makes that Cincy game a big deal.  Beating Purdue sets the tone to beat Cincy with ease.

    I think you're right to some degree. I also think there's a measure of frustration and exhaustion (mental/physical) on behalf of law enforcement.

     

    To be clear, I don't consider that an excuse for some of what we're seeing. If anything, we're seeing the exact kind of stuff that people are protesting about.

     

    But I can't imagine it's easy being an officer during these times when people are targeting you with projectiles, screaming at you, and demanding things from you. And then on top of all that you might be on day four of 12's.

     

    They signed up for this life. They have to be better. Most cops are walking around doing the right things during these troubling times so now is as good an opportunity as any to weed out the people that have no business being in law enforcement.

    Yes...

    I mean cops have to be as terrified of ranking cops as the rest of us are.

    I am not terrified of cops.

     

    Now, if you want to get me started on firemen and how ridiculously compensated they are for all the work they don't do, well, I will be happy to start a new thread.

    The French will take any excuse to have a little uprising. It's a national past time.

    They just better not piss of Germany...their national pastime is beating up the French. 

     

    Why are the streets of France lined with trees?

     

     

    So the Germans can march in shade.  Ha
