  1. Had a 4 legged dog yesterday and today I have a 3 legged dog.  Poor guy.

      He's doing very well and is very lucky (and fixed haha).  His kennel rattled open in the bed of the pickup and he jumped out doing about 45 mph.  It looked a lot worse than it ended up being.  I was sure I'd have to put him down all the way to the vet.  I think he's going to live a long, happy life and I'll probably feel worse about the leg than he ever will.

      @The Dude I hope you don't take my comment out of context poorly, and I wasn't trying to be a jerk.  I'm a dog lover, and it looks like your pup took a nasty spill. Hopefully he will adapt quickly and get back to having a fun-loving life.

      @ColoradoHusk not at all.  I appreciate the humor.  :thumbs

  4. Has anyone tried that Super Nova beer from Empyrean?  For some reason I can't seem to get into it.

      I've seen players literally *kicked out of games* for much less in college football.

      If the QB was named "Brady" the defender would have been banned from the NFL for life

      I think really cold temperatures feel warmer than 10+ because you start to not feel it as much. Probably the body's coping mechanism for the insanity you're putting it through, although you die faster.

      Well luckily it looks like the 4 people vying for the top spot all must have had Bama, may end up with it anyways or at least 2nd.

  11. What a cruel universe where kickers can determine the outcome of football games.

      Wife and I wanted to see a comedy on date night and there weren't many options. It's absolutely awful - just flat out not funny. In the running with Cool World as the worst movie I've seen in the theaters.

  17. Anyone think Northwestern is going to win the conference based on the idea that it's difficult to beat a team twice?

      The tougher to beat a team the 2nd time thing is probably harder to debunk with Nebraska fans because we have shown a propensity of playing much worse in second game same season matchups. OU 78?, Washington Holiday bowl and Wiscy CCG games all immediately come to mind. I can’t think of any that have gone our way.

       

      Its also been my experience with youth hockey games. I can’t count the times a team would beat another in the seeding rounds only to lose to the same team in bracket play. It’s all anecdotal but.....

    3. Moiraine

      Moiraine

      Just a thought...

      Even if the winner of the first game is 23-14 (62%) it can still be true that it's tougher to beat a team in the 2nd game. If it wasn't the record in the 2nd game should be more lopsided. They've already beaten that team once and they only beat them twice 62% of the time.

    4. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      So, 1st game losing teams improve from 0-37 to 14-23 in ccg rematches and from 0-22 to 15-7 in bowl game rematches. Pretty definitive that it is much tougher to beat a team the 2nd time.

      Thanks_Tom RR

      @Redux Not fighting. Just disagreeing with your initial oversimplification. Then, you mentioned that Nebraska fades at the end of the year. From 0-6 to 4-1. I am pointing out Nebraska seems to be the team getting stronger over the season this year.

       

      My responses seem obvious, so I am surprised you are giving any push back.

    3. JJ Husker

      @Thanks_Tom RR I get what you're saying but I did not interpret what @Redux initially said as needing debunked. It seemed obvious that he was referring to the typical past and not to this season specifically. I don't think you guys are disagreeing, just maybe on a little different page.

      What's funny is when we were losing I heard it non-stop from my Iowa fan friends. Now........they're really nervous to play us because they know this isn't the same team that went 0-6. We're dangerous now with this offense. If our defense can just play a bit better I don't see us losing to Iowa.

      I'm watching UT-WV now that GA-UK is over but was streaming both PSU-UM & Purdue-IA.  Purdue couldn't cover IA tight ends.  I like our chances against the Squawks.  Purdue put up some points and we should also.

  23. I've read and heard maybe 50 times how Ohio State is going to stomp NU because they'll be mad.  My question is why can Ohio State be mad they got beat by Purdue 2 weeks ago but Nebraska can't be mad they're 2-6?

      Keep in mind our players guaranteed that the UM game was going to be as bad as it gets.  I thought that was bold considering we still had to play OSU

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      I'm not too worried about them being mad. They just as easily could have doubts and the thought that if Purdue beat them then anyone could. I mean it still could get ugly for NU if our defense doesn't do a better job than they have all year but I'm not too worried about our offense being able to move the ball. I expect a high scoring shootout that will come down to whether or not we can make a few stops or get some turnovers. If we turn it over and can't stop them, then it might get ugly.

    4. Moiraine

      Moiraine

      It's not relevant whether they're mad.  They scored 56+ points on us each of the last 3 times we played them and they weren't "mad" then. So what if they score 70 on us instead of 56?
