  1. The Dolphins are not very good at playing football.

      I hear that Thomas Brady guys is a real slouch too. No other teams have even looked at him for a trade.

  2. Man the Redskins offensive line looks really bad.  Any guesses on who their o-line coach is?

    1. ZRod

      ZRod

      Well, if it is who I think it is he was pretty good at coaching that position for awhile...

      Bill C..  No wait that is too obvious.  B. Callahan

  3. Hey check out the NFL passing leader.   I guess The Taylor Effect doesn't have the same ring to it as The Frost Effect.

      I can agree with that.  Pretty good day for the Kellen Moore effect too!

      Yeah I was skeptical of him too.  Dallas has a crazy number of offensive weapons and he did a great job making sure everyone touched the ball. 

       

      Maybe Kitna should get a little credit working with Dak too.

      I checked out the Bengals boards, they seem about as happy as you can be after a loss.

      They really get into this in the Behind the Music of Hot Sundae. Really hard hitting. 

  5. Remember when we were worrying about becoming Minnesota?  Until proven otherwise, we're there.

      We are close to Rutgers bad. Talent wise we are decent, coach wise not so much.

      Michigan will find a way. Army is just so different to play against. Against everyone else, Michigan can give up 3 yards per play and get off the field. Army changes the game by smart 4th down usage.

      Michigan overrated year after year. Getting booed off the field at half :lol:

  8. I know you got your mind on the game but I'd just like to remind everyone Dave Chappelle is a national treasure.

  11. Never heard Ronnie Green speak before.  He would make one heckuva salesman for propane and propane accessories. 

  12. Wisconsin looked good but with Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State on the schedule it's still an uphill climb to win the West.

      Sparty needs to get something going with their passing game for sure but that defense looks nasty 

    2. VectorVictor

      VectorVictor

      Yeah as long as you play competent offense, Sparty isn’t gonna be a legitimate threat. Zero offense and lots of undisciplined/sloppy play by both sides of the ball again. 

       

      Sparty may have the best defense in the land, but with no offense, they’re going 7-6 again.

  13. Wasn't there some talk of Minnesota being a threat this year?

      Fine with me, we need to waste them to shut down this nonsense about them being a contender 

  14. Can anyone recommend a good free ad blocker for android?

    1. Enhance

      Enhance

      FWIW, more and more sites (especially news sites) are adding scripts that prevent users from accessing content if they have ad blockers turned on. Usually they'll serve you a message saying 'Allow ads' or something like that, but something to keep in mind.

    2. VectorVictor

      Ah, I see someone's preparing for HuskerMax's takeover of the site.

      You're a great man, @knapplc.  

  18. I suppose this is basically like saying "water is wet" but Chappelle's new special is incredibly funny.

    1. teachercd

      teachercd

      He is amazing.  It sucked when he killed his show.  I did always wonder if the annoying stuck up type of person would watch and force themselves to pretend like it wasn't funny.  He made fun/jokes about EVERYONE and seemed to be loved by all.

      Is this something new or the one that's been on Netflix for a few months?

      @RedDenver brand new.  "Sticks & Stones".

  19. Not just Stoll.  I've seen more than a couple mullets on the squad this year.  Another reason to predict double digit wins.

    1. Toe

      Are we certain that Mike Gundy hasn't joined the staff?

    2. brophog

      brophog

      Gundy doesn’t have the mullet to compete with these guys. These are some prime 1980s throwback mullets. Top shelf.

  20. Samford's air raid is all wrong for Pelini's defense.

      I miss the feeling of roasting a presumably 'good' team. I'm trying to think of the last time it really happened. Might have to go back to 2010 when we ran all over Missouri? The final score was relatively close but that game got out of hand fast.

    3. B.B. Hemingway

      Maybe the Cousins/Bell Michigan State team we best 24-3. That was complete dominance, weren't they ranked 7th or so?

    4. Enhance

      Enhance

      @B.B. Hemingway I think you're right, and I don't believe it has happened since.

       

      Both of those Nebraska victories came the week after our opponent had won a big game against a top 10 opponent, too. I believe Missouri had beat Oklahoma at home the week before playing us in 2010, and then MSU beat Wisconsin the week prior to losing to us in 2011.

  22. Is Chin's "turd" sound bite his version of "the strain"? Here's to hoping he doesn't field his 4th consecutive turd of a defense this year.

  23. I don't Twitter good, I never could figure out how to post a tweet, but it sounds like Luke Gifford is having a good camp with the Dallas Cowboys.  They're kinda stacked at linebacker though, so we'll see.

      I think the Cowboys had one of their starting Linebackers go out for the season with injury already, IIRC, so there's opportunity. Here's hoping he makes it, does well, and then moves to a significantly better team.

      Sean Lee is always injured.   So I suppose there ou s opportunity there.

  24. Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers is the absolute greatest.

      @The Dude I don't think we are complaining, just questioning why this movie is being made and released (obviously to make $) when the documentary on Fred Rogers and his show was so outstanding and has only been out for a year or so.  Xmas and I both said we enjoy Tom Hanks, and the trailer made the movie look good.  Maybe I just prefer documentaries or books over sensationalized Hollywood bio-pics.

       

      Take Moneyball and The Blind Side.  Both were very good adaptations of the books (both written by Michael Lewis), but I preferred reading the books over watching the movies, although I may have to re-watch Moneyball.

    3. The Dude

      Your complaints are duly noted.

      The movie will bring more attention to the documentary. It already has - I didn't know the documentary existed until the trailer for this movie came out.
